This work was a byproduct of research supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Council for International Exchange of Scholars under its New Century Scholars program, and Indiana University. I am grateful for that support and for the assistance with translations given by a number of scholars and graduate students. I am grateful also to the editors at Population and Development Review for finding a home for this list of sources, and to Vladimir Shkolnikov and John Wilmoth, directors of the Human Life-Table Database, for providing that home.
