Public Memory and Rhetoric Bibliography

I’ve been finishing a large project, and this is the bibliography I’ve been keeping for the parts on public memory and rhetoric. It’s for the project, so it’s not exhaustive, but I think it’s a good collection of sources for someone interested in the area.

    Can you suggest some books for memory palace training or methods as I might not be able to read all of the books mentioned above, out of which many are about the history and the changes since then.
    Thank you.
