Subject: references on adpositional typology

Dear Colleagues,
One of my students has expressed an interest in some good bibliographic references on the issues of adpositional typology -- prepositions vs. postpositions, etc.  Since this is an area where my own interest vastly outstrips my reliable knowledge, i'm looking for some suggestions from those with more knowledge & experience in this area.  I'm willing to post a summary, if it's desired.
