Nine volume set. Reprint of the complete set of this extraordinarily important bibliography. The Bibliography of American Literature is a necessary reference set that took almost a half century to complete. Coming back into print with the permission of the Bibliographical Society of America, this exciting new printing is sure to find the shelves of any scholar of American literature. In the chronicle of American annotated bibliography this tremendous work has stood well the test of time as well as scholarship. From its proposal in 1943 to its completion in 1991 a formidable group of bookmen beginning with William A. Jackson, James T. Babb, Clarence S. Brigham and David A. Randall oversaw the Lilly Endowment grant that funded much of the project. This august committee hired Jacob Blanck as the Research Director of the project. Under Blanck's leadership, his fellow editors and their assistants compiled 23,539 entries requiring more that 5200 pages to be published! Oak Knoll Press and the Bibliography Society of America are proud to publish for the first time, a complete, nine-volume set and make this American literary masterpiece available once again to libraries, scholars, and bibliophiles all throughout the world. -opisanie
