The titles of original sources, pamphlets, monographs, books of all kind, including poetry and fiction, and of historical works devoted to special themes are too numerous to be listed here. Many of them have been quoted in the text: Additional references can be found in the Magna Bibliotheca Anglo-Judaica : a Bibliographical Guide to Anglo-Jewish: History (London, 1937), edited by Cecil Roth, and in the Bibliographies of the standard works listed below.

The list that follows contains the titles of some principal works, on which I have drawn, and which the reader interested in further details may consult.
