Note that the full text on this site is around 500 MB (including html-formatting and image-files, together possibly 10 to 25% of it).

The above survey gives a useful overview the site that allows you to see what's on it by clicking on the links.

Note this is an outline, and consisist only of the main directories. It is probably not quite complete, but is the best there is. Also, I should like to add that all of the above, and the whole site, have been made while I am ill.

All I did on Sep 6, 2016 was to delete Bayle: I like him but a good comment on his long text is too much work for me.
