Library of European Civilisation

This is something of a silly project for me. I recently read a book called 'The World of Late Antiquity: AD 150 to 750' by Peter Brown which I greatly enjoyed. On the corner of this book was mentioned that this was part of a series of books called the 'Library of European Civilisation'. I did a little research to this so called 'Library' and found that there was no obvious list of other books in along side this one. I in turn contacted the publisher - Thames & Hudson - who responded with an extensive list of ISBN numbers without title or context.

This situation cannot last.

My project is to complete the list. To give context to those jumbles of numbers and to see if there is more I can learn from this 'Library of European Civilisation'. Most links are to amazon.co.uk for my own convenience and to save time, an alternative location to get many of the books would also be abebooks.com. In the end there were a few books that were not apart of the 'Library of European Civilisation', these have been included at the bottom under their correct headings.
