Yes, I know. I meant the book structure where 
a) under the pages are footnotes (mostly explanatory kind, adding some 
information to the main text), 
b) in the end of text are endnotes containing mostly bibliographical kind 
(e.g. "24. See Burleigh, Third Reich, p.109" - example from the translation I 
just work on) and 
c) besides it there is a chapter, mostly named  "Bibliography" in which there 
are full bibliographical references (from same translation - "Burleigh, 
Michael. The Third Reich: A New History (London, 2001).")

These three kind of references are quite common in the books I mostly 
encounter (humanities, science).
