Recent Studies in 18th-Century Children's Literature

 "Recent" in the title for this bibliography means roughly the last dozen years; see also my bibliographies on 18th-century reading and bibliophilia and of engraving and illustration. This updated version includes information kindly provided by Pat Garrett, Co-Editor of the Children's Books History Society Newsletter and that Society's Executive Secretary, and by Andrea Immel, Curator of Princeton's Cotsen Children's Library. I will continue to revise this bibliography, so I request additions and corrections from scholars. Last revised February 2, 2002.
