Webmaster's Note : In an attempt to provide quality over quantity, I have only included titles that I have had the opportunity to refer to myself, and can therefore personally recommend. Omission of any titles is not necessarily indicative of lack of quality, but rather a result of me not having a chance to read or view them. I have not included notes on publications at this point but hope to do so in the near future.
I have tried to include Publisher information where possible, but dates are a guide only and mainly based on personal copies.
