The attic is a virtual space where old books go to eke out their meagre pensions when their children don't want them at home any more.
Books in the attic are listed by author, and have been lovingly tidied into primary and secondary sources, though some that don't fit comfortably into either of those have found a home in the "Medievalism" section.
For Primary sources, books are listed alphabetically by author or artist where one is known, though the method isn't consistent (for example, anything in stock by Dante Alighieri is under D, Matthew Paris or Peter of Blois under P, John of Salisbury under S - you get the idea). Anonymous works and anthologies are listed on separate pages, and there's another page for facsimiles and art works (artists are listed alphabetically with authors if their names are known).
Secondary sources are listed alphabetically by author or editor. Works without a named author and reference books are listed on separate pages, and there is another sub-section for Journals and other serials or partworks.
