P Fischer [2006] Fischer, Andrzej, et. al., Polskich Znaków Pocztowych, Tom II, 2006, Firma Handlowo-Uslugowa Andrzej Fischer [FHU], Bytom & Kraków, PL.

Fischer is now the most widely-quoted Polish stamp catalog. Tom II covers locals, POW issues and other back-of-the-book material. Przedbórz in on pp 43-44. (et al refers to the 35+ experts, editors, etc. who are listed on the inside title page.)
G Głuszek [unknown date] Głuszek, J. U., J. Heesakker, P. Krzyzanowski, Spezial Katalog Lokal-Stadt-Post, 1914-1918, Arnheim, NL, sometime after 1960. This seems to be volume six of a seven-volume typewritten series self-published by Głuszek. We assume this is published after 1960, because volume one covers Polish general issues from 1860-1960. He covers a lot of Warsaw issues, but I don't know enough to comment on accuracy, completeness, etc.
