A referencing style not in favour in academia any more:

"Unfortunately the reference, at the time I met with it, did not possess any special significance, and either I omitted to make a note of it, or entered it in a book which, with sundry others, went mysteriously astray in the process of moving furniture. In any case, though I have searched diligently I have failed to recover the passage, but I note it here in the hope that one of my readers may be more fortunate."

— Dr. Jessie L. Weston, "From Ritual to Romance", 1920
