Chew, Frederic E. Faverty, Charles Fred erick Harrold, William Irvine, William D. Templeman, Charles W. Thomas, Ruth C. Wallerstein, Helen C. White, and Austin Wright UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS PRESS PREFACE VOLUME constitutes the first presentation in book form of any of the annual quot period quot bibliographies of English litera ture. Some account of its history may be in order. In December, 1930, at the meeting of the Victorian Literature Group of the Modern Language Association of America, in Washing ton, D. C., the present editor submitted a bibliography of publications books, articles, and reviews of 1930 that had a bearing on English literature of the Victorian period. Considerable interest was shown in the bibliography and the accompanying suggestion that it be followed by annual Victorian bibliographies., When the Group met the next year, in Madison, Wisconsin, further interest was made evident. The newly-elected chairman, Professor Howard Mumford Jones, then of the University of - Michigan, was authorized to appoint a bibliography committee. He asked the present editor to serve as chairman of such a committee, to aid in its forma tion, and to start it working. The following members of the Group agreed to help with the task, and were appointed members of the committee Professor Frederic E. Faverty, Professor Charles Frederick Harrold, and Professor Helen C. White. The task of making an annual bibliography could scarcely be will ingly or effectively performed unless a satisfactory means of publication could be found. The Group had voted for this committee no directions as to procedure and no funds. The chairman of the com mittee consulted with Professor Ronald S. Crane, the managing editor of Modern Philology, published by the University of Chicago Press. Upon Professor Crane s recommendation, arrangements were made for the annual Victorian bibliographies to be printed in the May issues of Modern Philology. The first Victorian bibliography appeared in Modern Philology for May, .1933. Experience showed that its style was not completely satisfactory. Consequently the number of - sections in the next bibliog raphy became four instead of five, some alteration was made in the section headings, and boldface type was used in order to name em phatically the individual authors dealt with in Section IV. The bibliographies have been essentially the same in style from 1934 to the present.
