      Reference bibliography.

      Creswell, the great British scholar of Islamic architecture, began his Monumental Bibliography in 1912 and published it in 1961. Covering publications up to 1 January 1960, it contains over 15,000 entries arranged by media and regions. ln 1973, Creswell himself produced a first supplement, covering publications to the end of 1971, and a second supplement (compiled by the late J. D. Pearson, George T. Scanlon, and the late Michael Meinecke) covering publications from January 1972 to December 1980 was published in 1984, a decade after Creswell's death.

      Creswell's majestic and masterly book provides a precious and almost indispensable working tool: the scanning of 370 periodicals, the examination of 11,749 volumes, an index of 4,620 names of authors prove the magnitude of this selfless work. The author's method of classification is practical: grouping by country for architecture, by technique for furniture and handicrafts, followed by a section containing information on the influence of the Near East on the West, and ending with an index of authors' names.
