I believe for numerous references, the author's name is given unless idem for a different text but same author consecutively is used. As in: Mann, Thomas. Buddenbrooks(Publishers) p.98 Id. Death in Venice(Publishers) p.87 Mann. op.cit. p.23 Grass, Gunter. The Tin Drum(Publishers)p.90 Mann. loc.cit.
