Jackson Bibliography of Romantic Poetry

Abstract: 
This bibliography is a work in progress that aims eventually to provide descriptions of all the volumes of verse in English that were published from 1770 to 1835. Phase I presents the years from 1798 to 1835 and includes 17,160 entries. Phase II will add the years from 1770 to 1797. The bibliography includes books that appeared for the first time in 1770 or later, with a minimum size of ten pages.

The bibliography attempts to record all extant editions of verse in English published in volume form during the years 1770 to 1835. Copies of all editions listed in the bibliography have been personally examined by the compiler: therefore the presence in the bibliography of second, third, fourth and fifteenth editions does not mean that the fifth to fourteenth editions do not exist, only that no copies have been found.
