Does anyone know about mirrors of this great resource:

It was very useful and valuable.

I believe what used to be at that link was an online unathorized copy of a CD-rom published by APS. Yes, it had some really good old papers in PDF format. I would like to know if it is still possible to buy this CD? I searched APS.org but did not find any info about it other than some references to it.

Yes, I know. I am not subscribed but still have purchased several
articles online. But this "PRL The First Hundred Years" CD-rom is
compilation of all the more important and significant physics papers
over PRL's first hundred years. Such as Millikan's determination of
electronic charge, Compton's scattering experiment, Weisskopf's "On the
Self-Energy and Electromagnetic Field of an Electron", etc. And plenty
more. If the CD-rom is not too expensive, it is definitely a handy
"tool" for serious physics students to study the original papers
referenced in textbooks.

So does anyone know if this CD-rom is still availible for purchase?
Maybe online access to APS is required to find out?

Apparently this CD-rom comes with a book edited by Henry Stroke called "The Physical Review: The First Hundred Years : A Selection of Seminal Papers and Commentaries$" /Book$ and Cd-Rom. Published by AIP Press (I guess I was looking on the wrong website). Amazon is offering it for $159 new but has a link to used ones for$21. Not too bad.
