Bibliography - B


This is an alphabetical index of sources sorted by primary author or collector, and then by year of publication or collection. Each entry gives basic bibliographic information. Click on the links for further details (most brief sources are quoted in full). N.b. Many sources are anonymous, so these appear either under the name of the publication (e.g. Nottinghamshire Guardian), or under the name of the source collection (e.g. M.W.Barley Collection). See also the Name Index for informants, etc.
