This is the standard primary bibliography of English literature. The third edition, of which Volume 4, 1800-1900, is the first to be published, presents a comprehensive revision and updating of the two previous editions. It offers authoritative individual bibliographies, compiled by specialists of international reputation, of writers in all genres--poetry, fiction, drama and the novel--together with sections compiled by specialists on children's literature, historical and travel writing, philosophy and science, political economy, the literature of sports, education, journalism, book production and literary relations with the continent.
