Bibliography

Bibliographies are not just lists of cited references at the end of research papers. Bibliographies are also books that attempt to list or explain literary works dedicated to a topic or author. For instance, if you were curating a collection of Mark Twain or Will James, you might want to search for rare or antique bibliographies that outline their works. These nonfiction references can be supremely helpful in deepening your knowledge not just about the author or topic in question, but in the book and literary community as well. You can also find bibliographies that focus on famous museums or renowned libraries. By doing so, these bibliographies often provide a rare and valuable glimpse into the society that built such a unique and special book and ephemera collection.
