Description


Revised and enlarged from the 1976 University of Toronto edition. Limited to 500 copies. During the last quarter of the nineteenth century George Gissing wrote twenty-two published, and at least five unpublished, novels, three other prose works of book length, some literary criticism and well over a hundred short stories. A hundred years later interest in his work continues unabated. This bibliography provides a detailed up-to-date and systematic description of Gissing's publishing career, based upon an examination of countless copies of the books themselves. The author has extensively revised and enlarged this edition of his book, extending the treatment of reissues and adding entirely new sections on the short stories and on Gissing criticism, as well as a new introduction. This bibliography is not an enumeration of reissues up to the present day, but an account of Gissing's writing life in terms of the composition and publication of the works he produced. As a work of reference, it is intended as much for the general reader and student as for the antiquarian bookseller or bibliophile. Mark in red ink on front of jacket. xiv , 167 pages. cloth.. 8vo..
