The Library

I'm beginning to compile a list of books under various subjects regarding the 18th century. This will be an ever-expanding and growing list, since my newbie-ness has limited me to sources other than the ├╝ber-well-known sources, like Burnley and Trowbridge and Wm. Booth, Draper. Think I'm missing any titles? Please, let me know!
