It wasn't clear to me that you meant two separate items: 
  "Perl CD Bookshelf" and,
   PRK, "Perl Resource Kit".  

I've done some cut/paste from www.orielly.com

  - Perl Resource Kit -- Unix Edition

I remember waiting for its 1997 release.  It never had a second
edition.  It had 4 books in a bookcase box:
    1.   Perl Utilities Guide
    2.   Programming with Perl Modules          
    3-4. Perl Module Reference (2 books)

  - Perl CD Bookshelf, Version 3.0

I still have Version 1.0, which was never intended to run from a hard
disk, since hard disk sizes weren't big enough to suck up entire CD's
at the time.  O'Reilly had a hack that allowed me to install it on
a laptop, once disk drives grew big enough to run them locally.  It
has 7 books on the CD, and one paperback version:
    1.   second edition of Perl in a Nutshell (paperback version included), 
    2-3. the third editions of Learning Perl and Programming Perl, 
    4.   the Perl Cookbook
    5.   Perl & XML,
    6.   Perl & LWP
    7.   Mastering Perl/Tk.
