From time to time there are requests for a list of "all" LaTex book classes. Is there a comprehensive list of all of them?

Here is a list of book classes:

  • book
  • bookest
  • extbook
  • memoir
  • scrbook
  • octavo
  • basque-book
  • serbian-book
  • bgteubner
  • suftesi
  • mwcls (mwbk)
  • tufte-latex
  • Mentis
  • NGT-class (book) (Dutch latex document class)
  • Jura (jurabook)
  • ctexbook (Chinese language)
  • NoStarch
  • amsbook
  • refman

Are there any more?

I don't think the question should be put on hold. 19 book classes have been identified; that is hardly a never-ending list. There are often requests made for this list which is why I asked the question in the first place--to find out if there are any lesser-known book classes that address different typesetting issues.

If this list (as amended by including book classes referred to in the comments below) is the answer, then re-open the question so that the list can be copied and pasted in Answer format. That's not possible at the moment (unless cookies are preventing me from doing so).

    And now a small note on each what makes them relevant over the others :), I would upvote such an answer. – math Oct 30 '13 at 9:24

    Possibly Related with bigger scope of document classes What are the available “documentclass” types and their uses? – texenthusiast Oct 30 '13 at 10:31

    @guest: there is a comprehensive list on ctan -- i worked on the xml sources yesterday, making sure everything had the relevant tags, but the processed catalogue list seems not to have caught up :-( – wasteofspace Oct 31 '13 at 9:05

    May I suggest that the "answer" (i.e. the list of classes) be put in an answer? Otherwise it looks as though this question doesn't have an answer. – Andrew Stacey Nov 1 '13 at 8:26
