PREFACE

The aim of this bibliography is to present a complete record of the editions of Thomas Gray's works, together with a list of all the reviews, critical notices, and studies relating to him that have thus far appeared. I have made it as full as possible in order to indicate the extent of Gray's popularity and influence. Notwithstanding great diligence and pains, I have doubtless come far short of what I aim to do; for it is not to be expected that a bibliography compiled by any one person shall be complete. I can only hope that nothing of great importance has escaped

me.

In the case of critical notices, one exception to the statement above must be made. I have not attempted to include all histories of English literature, the number of which is so great that the mention of even a considerable part would swell the list to an utterly unwieldy size, but have included only the most important of them.

I have marked the more important criticisms with an asterisk.
