Re: [isabelle] Skolemization in first-order logic without the Axiom of Choice, Literature on Isabelle

The 1994 book is frequently cited, but it is merely the three manuals of the time joined together. Those manuals continued to be updated for years afterwards, so that book is a snapshot, and it doesn't present any theory. The 1989 paper covers Isabelle as a logical framework. In the past year or two, papers have emerged giving an account of the semantics of Isabelle/HOL, including type classes and other extended definitional mechanisms.
