This library is a catalogue of works or links to works, institutions and persons that have contributed to my understanding/enjoyment and which I would recommend to those seeking guidance. It is a personal catalogue of the sort I imagine I would have benefited from as my thirst for knowledge started to develop. As such, it reflects my biography in as much as items are largely English Language items, with a preponderance of British or English works to boot.

I shall edit the catalogue over time as I become aware of new material or sources, or as I change my mind. I shall also try to add a note of explanation to each item, if not a review proper, in due course.
