This list will, for the time being, come as a great disappointment to anyone looking for a proper one .. the reason is that I am going to add to it gradually as books come to mind, are recommended by others, or of course when I have time to look through my small library. For the moment, I’ve just started it off with those books I’ve recommended elsewhere on this site .. and when it gets bigger it will start to divide into subjects.
