Re.: History of the footnote (still is: History of hypertext)

It is good to learn from Kristine Haugen's contribution that the
foot note has already found the curious attention of philologers
in the person of Anthony Grafton. To judge by Kristine Haugen's
spirited account, Grafton's books must be fun reading.
>From Germany, one might perhaps add

Riess, Peter / Fisch, Stefan / Strohschneider, Peter: Prolegomena zu einer
Theorie der Fuánote.; ( fuánote, 1). Muenster: Lit-Verlag, 1995 (57 pp.)
ISBN 3-88660-552-3 [read "Fuánote" as "Fussnote"]


Burkle-Young, Francis A. / Maley, Saundra Rose: The Art of the Footnote:
The Intelligent Student's Guide to the Art and Science of Annotating Texts;
University Press of America, 1996 (ISBN 0761803483) [most probably with some
captioned illustrations]

[ASIDE: Although it is highly flattering, Kristine, I am not a Professor;
just one longtime unemployed academic who will soon be ordered to line up
with his toothbrush to clean German sidewalks.]
