Dr. Rosove’s outstanding bibliography is the result of ten years’ research including the examination of private collections, booksellers’ holdings, and the repositories of twelve of the world’s most important libraries and archives. The bibliography contains many rare and virtually unknown publications and clarifies innumerable obscure points of interest. Included are all publications in the original language of the author and English-language translations. (Non-English translations are given in brief.) Given are all contemporary publications (prospectuses, narratives, science) and selected post-contemporary publications (memorials, diaries, autobiographies, biographies, analyses, bibliographies, references, humanities) in all identified editions, printings, and variants, with binding and collation details, bibliographical references, ISBN, rarity, original price, and referenced commentary. Less important post-contemporary publications are listed in brief. Author/editor, title, and subject indexes are provided. Heretofore unrecognized publications are now described, with much additional information about previously reported publications, with correction of errors. This is a very high quality production which is a ‘must have’ reference for anyone interested in Antarctic literature.
