"This exhaustive compilation will probably be the standard Webster bibliography for some time to come. It should be considered a necessary companion to The Papers of Daniel Webster. The 5,347 numbered entries are arranged into 14 chapters covering topics such as Webster's service in Congress and as secretary of state, and his presidential campaign. Scholars will be interested in the sections on archival holdings, historiographical materials, Webster's writings, and his associates. Some selected annotations provide further information about obscure materials. Moser searched extensively to dig up the older books, pamphlets, periodical articles, and manuscripts listed here, thus saving future researchers valuable time. At the end are a list of serials consulted and lengthy indexes to authors, editors, compilers, translators, and subjects….Highly recommended. Undergraduates and general readers."
"This exhaustive treatment lists primary and secondary works documenting the life of the famous orator and politican Daniel Webster.

He has provided a guide to wealth of historical materials, including contemporary periodical articles, manuscripts, pamphlets, and diaries, which would otherwise be difficult and time-consuming to find….This work is enthusiatically recommended for libraries supporting advanced research in nineteenth-century U.S. history, including nationalism, slavery, the tariff, Indian affairs, the Constitution, and Western expansion."
