[HM] Discovering an Interesting online Bibliography
Posted:
Jun 22, 1998 7:10 PM


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 mathhistory 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: http://www.ruf.unifreiburg.de/theologie/forsch/lohr/lohrch1.htm and the second at: http://www.ruf.unifreiburg.de/theologie/forsch/lohr/lohrch2.htm
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.
