CHAPTER XIX
CRITICAL ESSAY ON AUTHORITIES

BLIOGRAPHIES

THE most complete bibliography of the subject of this volume is found in Justin Winsor, Narrative and Critical History of America ( 8 vols., 1888- 1889), VI., 68-112, 172-204, which may be used to advantage with his Reader's Handbook of the American Revolution, 1761- 1783 ( 1880). Of first-rate bibliographical value for the contemporary writings is Moses Coit Tyler, Literary History of the American Revolution ( 2 vols., 1897). For critical details may be consulted Joseph Sabin, Dictionary of Books Relating to America ( 20 vols., incomplete, 1868- 1892). Similar aid may be gained from Isaiah Thomas, History of Printing in America ( 1874). Very helpful are J. N. Larned , The Literature of American History, a Bibliographical Guide ( 1902); and Edward Channing and Albert Bushnell Hart , Guide to the Study of American History ( 1896). Much of the earlier material in C. H. Van Tyne, American Revolution ( American Nation, IX)., is applicable to the subject of this volume.


GENERAL SECONDARY AUTHORITIES

George Bancroft, History of the United States ( 10 vols., to 1782, 1834- 1874; 6 vols., to 1789, 1885), presents the most detailed account of the beginnings of the Revolution. The book is the result of vast research, but it is marred by the author's pro-American bias, his well-known faults of style, and his disregard of the ethics of quotation marks
