For almost 50 years, the Cambridge Bibliography has been accepted internationally as the single most important reference work in its field. It is the starting point of any and all serious research in English literature, from manuscripts to electronic products. It is the standard primary bibliography of English literature, dealing with all genres: poetry, novel, prose, drama, children's literature, historical writing, English studies, religion, philosophy, travel writing, the literature of sport, education, journalism, book production and literary relations with the continent. The Bibliography was first published in 1940 with a supplement added in 1957. A revised and enlarged edition, known as NCBEL, was issued between 1969 and 1974 with an index volume added in 1977. The new edition which is currently being worked on, known as CBEL 3, while consolidating the strengths of its predecessors, will in a number of significant ways represent a radical recasting of and improvement on the original model. Sections on women writers and non-canonical writing are expanded and the literature of political economy and household books are accorded due space. Individual author entries include sections on manuscript locations, bibliographies, collected works, details of significant editions of individual works, contemporary reviews and translations, contributions to periodicals, letters, journals, pseudonymous works, imitations and attributed or spurious works.
