The following lists are, of course, brief and selected: other authors are mentioned at the appropriate places in the text. References are only here given when the subject (such as Oriental archaeology) is not one of common accessibility, or where (as in the Leonardo and Spinoza studies) the vast jungle of literature suggests that a few pointers to the most important items may be desirable.
