Overview

Based on the outstanding collections of Indiana University Libraries in the field, this is by far the largest bibliography of Portuguese literature published in the U.S., including not only all genres of literature proper from the beginning to the present, but titles in certain areas—voyages of discovery, literatura doutrinal, early history—that have become an integral part of Portuguese letters. Among the works drawn from Indiana University's Lilly Library of rare books are early printings of Monarchia Lusitana, Vieira's Sermons, and the Chronicle of King Manuel. Also noteworthy is the large number of 19th-century journals and of single plays, particularly comedies and reviews. American students of Portuguese literature will find especially valuable the extensive coverage of titles published in the U.S. and Great Britain. In the organization of material, the bibliography follows Library of Congress subject classifications.

A 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.
