1085 pp, 9 1/4" H. "This revised and enlarged 'Checklist' provides as complete a record as possible of the separately published works that constitute the literature of English-speaking Canada up to 1960. Its purpose is to stimulate interest and research in our literary culture, to reveal individual figures and areas of investigation rich in published material, and to facilitate the finding of the books concerned. Background materials are included because the cultural soil must be known if a nation's belles-lettres are to be adequately studied or fully appreciated. Part I of the 'Checklist' records all known titles in poetry, fiction, and drama that were produced by English-speaking Canadians. Part II is a selective reading list of books by Canadians which will be of value to anyone studying the literature or culture of Canada. Here are included books of biography, literary criticism, scholarship, local history, and religion. Each title published before 1951 is coded to indicate where copies of the book can be found. Some 16,000 titles by 7,000 Canadian authors are included in this comprehensive bibliography." Small faint area of red dye at top/bottom of text block fore-edge, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/rubbing, light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine, soft crease at bottom of front panel, minor browning on flap-folds and hinges, one very small edge tear, tiny ink line on front hinge, minor soiling.
