Williams, K. (2007). H.G. Wells, modernity and the movies.  Retrieved from http://site.ebrary.com/lib/emmanuel/docDetail.action?docID=10369547&p00=gimcrack

The library’s Credo Reference collection of e-books includes several entries about gimcrack.  Credo Reference is a collection of over 590 reference titles covering a variety of disciplines.
