No Turville-Petre?
actually a few of the above are co-edited by Turville-Petre, or translated by him, (I am assuming it is a him).

I was going for simplicity & only one author/editor for the list.
Ah. Okay. I was just wondering why you didn't have his one thing on there. ...which is probably because my college has Ellis-Davidson and him, and nothing else.
My college has this weird amalgam, we have some amazing sources, several books that are worth several hundred dollars, even entire series of books worth near to a thousand... and then we have crap books, and we're missing books I'd expect us to have. But at least we have a great InterLibrary Loan department. And see my paper is on Heathen magicoreligious practices: from the ancient past through the reconstructed present... so it may very well be certain sources just aren't helpful to me, or I found the material I needed elsewhere. I don't have the time to read it all afterall.
