ibid.
Explanation:
"Ibid." or "ib.", both abbreviations of the Latin adverb "ibidem", meaning "in the same place", can be used as footnote shorthand to avoid repeating the title of a book.

Note that the Modern Humanities Research Association Style Handbook recommends limiting the use of such abbreviations as they are often ambiguous.
