James Branch Cabell’s complicated writing and publishing history has been extensively documented by his bibliographers, the first of whom began work years before Cabell stopped writing.
John Thorne and William Lloyd’s An Illustrated Bibliography of Works By and About James Branch Cabell represents the most extensive and up-to-date scholarship in this field. The ongoing project builds on the work of their predecessors, while updating, correcting, and, for the first time, illustrating a bibliography of Cabell’s writing and other related works.
Thorne and Lloyd’s illustrated descriptive bibliography, published on The Silver Stallion website, covers James Branch Cabell’s short stories, essays, and books. Thorne and Lloyd include critical and biographical works about Cabell and a listing of the contents of the two Cabell journals: Kalki and The Cabellian.
An Illustrated Bibliography continues the form of bibliographer James N. Hall’s codes, adapting the system to include items published after 1972, as well as some printings and states unknown to Hall.
