Note: This is a very outdated list and mostly represents the books I used at when I was first compiling the website in the mid-to-late 1990s. I'll work on getting a more complete and up-to-date bibliography up here in the future.

This is a list of the main resources I've used to compile these pages (scans, info, dates, etc.) Where you see two dates on a book, the earlier one is the original publication date of the book and the later is the publication date of the copy I have. In addition to these books, there are some journal articles and class notes I have referred to.
