Just to record the question as answered: If you had separate A and B ligands with no ligand-ligand bonds, then the complex would have a plane (actually two planes) of symmetry and would not be chiral. But when you have a bridge between each A ligand and a separate B ligand, the bridges do not conform with the above plane(s) of symmetry and so those ...

I don't think there is a "primary source" for types of isomerism. The types of isomerism are human-defined categories that different authors find conceptually or pedagogically useful in different ways. It isn't like isomerism classification emerges from some unsupervised analysis of all possible structures. If it were my opinion, I'd follow the ...
