PROJÊT FOX:   BIBLIOGRAPHY

 

 

           The working bibliography for Projêt Fox was registered on 3 X 5 cards, the universal medium for library card catalogues and private research before the age of computers. Originally handwritten, and therefore not susceptible to OCR reproduction, they have simply been scanned for this digital record.


           The cards (more than 2,000 of them) were kept in three boxes: Pre-Revolutionary France; Revolution & Modern France; Non-French. Only the French sources have been subjected to elaborate topical subdivision, compared with the small number of categories in the non-French topical sources at the end of this list. Note too that there is a folder entitled “Bibliography” in the Ruminations, but it contains only a few miscellaneous items.
