Does anyone know of a good reference volume on Latin abbreviations?

Salve vir literarum

I use my university library copy of Adriano CAPELLI, Dizionario delle abbreviature latine ed italiane (Milan, 1900) [Lexicon abbreviaturarum. Introduction. English] 1982 and it's very good.
Exemplo in bibliothecâ universitatis utor. Hoc opus tibi commendo.

The Cappelli is still on print (€ 25 from any Italian online bookshop) and it is also available on line. See:
