Library JournalA comprehensive bibliography of the literature of Portugal has been needed for years; this bibliography only partially meets that need. Authored by a librarian of modern languages at Indiana University with a publishing history in the area of German literature, this volume is based on the collection in the university's libraries (including the Lilly Rare Book Library). It covers primarily monographic publications of the literary production of Portugal from its origins to 1990. The citations, arranged by Library of Congress subject headings, are not annotated. Though the list may be helpful to a research library, one questions the value of publishing nonannotated library-based bibliographies, especially in light of the availability of on-line data bases that are significantly more comprehensive. Ultimately, this bibliography demonstrates the collection development environment of Indiana University and not the publishing history of Portuguese literature.-Mark L. Grover, Brigham Young Univ. Lib., Provo, Ut.
BooknewsBased on the outstanding collections of Indiana University Libraries, this is by far the largest bibliography of Portuguese literature published in the US, including not only all genres of literature proper up to 1990, but titles in certain areas--voyages of discovery, literatura doutrinal, early history--that have become an integral part of Portuguese letters. In the organization of material, the bibliography follows Library of Congress subject classifications. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
