CRITICAL ESSAY ON AUTHORITIES
THE best formal bibliography of slavery and of the slavery question is W. E. B. DuBois, A Select Bibliography of the Negro American ( Atlanta University Publications, No. 10, 1905). Bibliographical data arranged in much the same order as the chapters of this book will be found in Channing and Hart, Guide to the Study of American History ( 1896), §§ 148, 152, 161, 186-189, 198, 214; J. N. Larned, Literature of American History, a Bibliographical Guide ( 1902), 181-213, 375-383, each book being briefly criticised; Albert Bushnell Hart, Handbook of the History, Diplomacy, and Government of the United States ( 1903), §§ 19h, 47, 55. Three recent bibliographies deal with the Negro and his status: W. E. B. DuBois, A Select Bibliography of the American Negro for General Readers ( 1901); A. P. C. Griffin , Select List of References on the Negro Question ( Library of Congress, 1903); Walter L. Fleming, Documents Relating to Reconstruction ( 1904), 156-163. See also Samuel May Jr. , Catalogue of Anti-Slavery Publications in America ( 1863). See also the foot-notes to the secondary writers and biographies below.
Very serviceable bibliographies on both slavery and abolition are to be found in appendices to the following monographs: Mary S. Locke, Anti-Slavery in America, 1619-1808 ( 1901); Marion G. McDougall, Fugitive Slaves, 1619-1865 ( Fay House Monographs, No. 3, 1891); Alice D. Adams , The Neglected Period of American Anti-Slavery,1808-1831
