William Cullen Bryant

Edited by Motley F. Deakin

"Many of the printed works of William Cullen Bryant collected by Parkman Howe are scarce, and some are so rare that the Bibliography of American Literature locates only one Howe copy. They include printings from the whole range of Bryant's career, but Mr. Howe's greatest success was in finding publications by Bryant as a boy and young man living in Massachusetts."
Contains: 243 printed titles; 9 manuscripts; 24 Ana.

Edited by Joel Myerson

" ... Both Blanck and I systematically excluded certain categories of entries from our works; there are thus a number of items in this catalogue not in BAL or Myerson because they fall outside the scope of the books' coverage."
Contains: 17 printed titles; 2 manuscripts

Jewett Edwin Arlington Robinson

Edited by A. Carl Bredahl

"One of the scarcest books is the privately printed Torrent and the Night Before; Lucius Beebe and Robert Buckley, in their 1931 bibliography, called it 'one of the rarest contemporaneous books.' Mr. Hogan describes the piracy Three Poems, 1928, as the scarcest of all Robinson's books."
Contains: 60 printed titles.
