THE first full bibliography of Ford's works is that of Edward Naumburg , jun.: "'A Catalogue of a Ford Madox Ford Collection'", Princeton University Library Chronicle, 9: 3 ( 1948), 134-65. The most comprehensive bibliography is David Dow Harvey's richly annotated Ford Madox Ford (1873- 1939): a Bibliography of Works and Criticism ( 1962, repr. 1972). It has been supplemented by two secondary source bibliographies: Linda Tamkin, covering 1962 to 1979+ADs- and Rita Malenczyk's , covering 1979 to 1985, both printed in Antaeus, 56 ( 1986). There is a five-volume selected edition of Ford works, The Bodley Head Ford Madox Ford: The Good Soldier, Selected Memories, Poems ( 1962), The Fifth Queen ( 1962), Parade's End ( 2 vols., 1963), all edited and introduced by Graham Greene+ADs- Memories and Impressions ( 1971), selected and introduced by Michael Killigrew. A most useful selection of Ford criticism is Critical Writings of Ford Madox Ford, ed. Frank MacShane ( 1964). The Ford Madox Ford Reader, ed. Sondra J. Stang ( 1986), is a generous sampling of Ford's works, plus sixty unpublished letters. Some twenty-five books by Ford are now back in print, including his studies of James and Conrad, various travel books, reminiscences, books of literary criticism, fairy-tales, and some of his most interesting historical romances and novels of modern life.
So far as biographical matters are concerned, there is, first of all, the abundance of Ford's romantic reminiscences: Ancient Lights ( 1911), Thus to Revisit ( 1921), Return to Yesterday ( 1931), and It Was the Nightingale ( 1933), plus the disguised autobiography, No Enemy (written shortly after the war, but published in 1929). Richard M. Ludwig edited Letters of Ford Madox Ford ( 1965). Brita Lindberg-Seyersted edited Pound/ Ford, the Story of a Literary Friendship: The Correspondence between Ezra Pound and Ford Madox Ford and Their Writings about Each Other ( 1982). Conrad's many and illuminating letters to Ford
