STATS ON THE BIBLIOGRAPHY

Should statistics prove of interest to you, here are some, based on the Bibliography available on this web-site.

Three health-warnings :
1. this bibliography is by no means full and complete! - a mere 1000 or so out of a possible 3000+. But the statistics are generally indicative.
2. The proportion of entries in English, or printed in UK and USA, has been necessarily weighted, to assist the aim of this website: 154 entries were copied from the Dammaschke & Vogler bibliography of 2013; another 2300 non-English entries were NOT copied across.
3. All online entries, except those 154 abovementioned, were harvested independently of Dammaschke & Vogler. The website author takes full responsibility for any errors and omissions.
