ENL 4122 Historical Annotation – Print Bibliography
Note: Your best source of information on sources related to the novels will be the editorial notes and bibliographies supplied by the editors in your texts. Do not neglect these sources of information. Also, you can use the bibliographies and websites linked to the syllabus. Remember, you may not rely SOLELY on web-based information.
Also, remember to use the USF Library’s electronic collections, including the very impressive Eighteenth-Century Collections Online, which gives you access to facsimile copies of many, many of the published titles from the period in which the novels are written. This will be a wonderful resource for primary texts in your historical annotation and for visual aids.
The following titles will provide good information for your historical annotation. Some are primarily literary in nature. The highlighted ones are historical. Many are on reserve in our library.
