Bibliography

This bibliography reflects only the books in my collection which contain at least one image.  It is not limited to the time frame I have set for the images.  In some cases, such as with the Wright and Tyrwhitt editions, there are multiple entries reflecting different times and publishers.  I have included these “duplicate” entries because often what seems to be a duplication of the same material isn’t a duplication after all.  The Corbould illustrations are supposedly the same across the entire spectrum no matter who or when they were published.  A careful look, however; shows that not all the images have been printed from the same blocks.  Some editions make use of reworked copies of the original blocks, and some seem to be copies of the copies.  And while I have not included multiple images of each of the Corbould illustrations on this web site, I have done so with the printed, reworked Ellesmere miniatures.  With other editions, multiple are listed because the publisher has used different images in the later editions.
