I also have books on langs such as Ainu, Basque, and other Isolates, various langs of PNG from famlies not in your list and other various and sundry that are not presently coming to mind. Additionally I have materials on American Sign Language, Signed English, British Sign Language, Taiwan Sign Language, Hong Kong Sign Language, Plains Indian Hand Talk, Austrian Sign Language, and articles about others such as Russian, German, French, Martha's Vinyard, Nicaraguan, Mexican and Hebrew signed languages. Oh, and then there's Gestuno. At present my language books fill about 6 standard 5-shelf book cases. Adam the compulsive.
