Bibliography   » Reviews

The following citations and quotations are from reviews and/or pre-publication press coverage of Agrippa. Caveat emptor: because of limited access to the book, “review” is in this case a fuzzy-logic concept. Some press coverage is clearly based just on pre-publication announcements and some on actual acquaintance with the artifact. But the status of others is blurry.
