[HM] Discovering an Interesting online Bibliography

I was searching the net to find out information for the German mathematician
Pochhammer a friend asked me for, and I came across the following reference:

P. Pochhammer, Dante und die Schweiz (Zurich 1896).

This Pochhammer is not the mathematician; simply a synonymy !
(the mathematician's name is Leo)
What, however, is interesting (from a math-history viewpoint) is the location
the reference is cited.

It is a Bibliography (Traditio Classicorum) compiled by Prof. Charles Lohr

The First Part is located at:
and the second at:

Quite a number of mathematicians is included in: Anc. Greeks, Arabs, Jews, etc

Here is an extract from the Bibliography's Description Page:
Traditio Classicorum
The Fortuna of the Classical Authors to the Year 1650 Charles H. Lohr

The following pages contain a bibliography of secondary literature
concerning the fortuna of classical authors to the year 1650.
The bibliography is arranged alphabetically according to the common
form, in Latin, of the names of the authors. The Latin form is followed also
for Greek and Arabic authors.
The term "classical" has in a few cases understood in a broad sense, so
that some references are included to medieval and Renaissance "classics",
but the choice has been rather arbitrary.
