Title: A Handbook of Germanic Etymology
Written By: Vladimir E Orel
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=11233
Description:

This book represents a reconstruction of the Proto-Germanic vocabulary as
attested in ancient and modern Germanic languages and projected to the
Proto-Germanic level. The volume contains valuable linguistic information
giving an outline of Proto-Germanic language, culture and pre-historic
tradition. It is the first attempt to reconstruct the Proto-Germanic
lexicon after the work of Falk and Torp in the beginning of the XXth century.
