Galt Bibliography

Bibliographies are extremely valuable companions in the study of any writer. The Centre for Robert Burns Studies recently launched the new descriptive bibliography of Robert Burns editions (1786-1802). As guides for scholars and students, bibliographies can be immersive - taking you through the works of a writer year by year, or place by place - or they can show you the true extent of a writer's oeuvre.

There is a good overview of Galt's works in the form of an early bibliography which you can find in The Records of the Glasgow Bibliographical Society vol, 9 (Glasgow, Jackson, Wylie & Co., 1931). More recently, at the University of Guelph, Tim Sauer produced an updated, descriptive bibliography of the works of John Galt (1998). 

It is our pleasure to announce that this wonderful resource has recently been made available online by the University of Guelph, and is now free and accessible here. We trust that it will prove useful to countless Galt scholars and students as we continue to discuss his legacy.
