Rotherhithe Bibliography

This is a bibliography for the entire blog. It is updated as I use different books and web pages, and it is organized first by theme and then by author. Any books and web pages used to contribute to any post are listed here. Where no author is known (as in the case of some web pages) those are listed at the end of each theme. If a reference is not listed here it is because it is a website that was linked to from the post concerned.
