I am required to use bibliography style, that is so far from anything made with BibLaTeX I have been able to find, that I do not have an idea how to achieve it. I am pretty confident that it is possible to achieve required style with BibLaTeX. Unfortunatelly package's documentation does not make it at all easy for beginners to find answers for this kind of questions.
I do not know if my question covers every quirk of the required style. However, I hope the answers could give me enough understanding of the system, that I could find further answers on my own.
Any help is appreciated. Partial answers can also be beneficial. For example answer to points 1-3 should already lead me to right direction. Also following kind of hints can help me to understand the system and to find my own answers. "Driver's handle this kind of stuff in BibLaTeX. Study lines xyz from file abc. This is where BibLaTeX does itself same kind of stuff for default style efg."
Style I am required to use
1) Basic formatting should be following where: (1) author's name should occupy it's own individual line; (2) followed by an year in the next line; (3) and everything else aligned similarly as default 'numeric' and 'alphabetic' styles do.
Last name, First name Year[tab]Title. Subtitle. Publisher's address: Publisher.
2) Multiple works by same author should be combined together in a following way.
Nahin, Paul J. 2010 An Imaginary Tale The Story Of [The Square Root Of Minus One]. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press. 2011 Dr. Euler's Fabulous Formula Cures Many Mathematical Ills. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press.
3) If work does not have an author, but only editor(s) or translator(s), work's title should replace author-line like this. However the title is also present in it's normal place.
The Princeton Companion To Mathematics 2008 The Princeton Companion To Mathematics. Ed. by Timothy Gowers et. al. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press.
4) Multiple authors in author line should be separed by &-sign.
Larson, Ron & Edwards, Bruce H. 2014 Calculus. 10th ed. Boston, MA: Brooks/Cole, Cengage Learning.
5) With classical works in place of year there is a user chosen shorthand and publisher's year is put after publisher's name.
Euclid Elms The Elements, Books I-XIII. Complete And Unabridged. Transl. by Thomas L. Heath. New York: Barnes & Noble, 2006.
6) If the shorthand is missing bibliography file there should be just a dash.
Euclid - The Elements, Books I-XIII. Complete And Unabridged. Transl. by Thomas L. Heath. New York: Barnes & Noble, 2006.
