Select Bibliography

We’re posting the full bibliography of The Compleat Witch below to start the blog properly, and as books are published, we’ll link each entry here.

We hope to publish a blog post featuring information and images on every single book in the following list. We’d like to publish one new book every week at a minimum. We will be scanning and doing data entry to begin releasing blog posts featuring each book beginning with “Untrodden Fields of Anthropology” by the mysterious Dr. Jacobus X!
We will, book by book, be working backwards through the list until we finally get to “Chorus Queens, Or The Private Lives of Broadway Hotcha Chorus Girls” We hope this curious bit of niche bibliomania finds an interested audience.

The blog will be maintained by a few fellow bibliomaniacs, but we encourage participation from everyone viewing by proofing our entries when you have copies of the books blogged, and submitting corrections, images, etc. in the comments section.

Just so it’s said, I believe that the bibliography is not subject to copyright, as there has been no “value added” information. That said, I could be wrong and it is not my intention to abridge the rights of the holder(s) of this work.
