abstract = {We shall provide an account of MacMahon's development of a calculational, analytic method designed to produce the generating function for plane partitions. His efforts did not turn out as he had hoped, and he had to spend nearly twenty years finding an alternative treatment. This paper provides an account of our retrieval of MacMahon's original dream od using Partition Analysis to treat plan partitions in general.},
