"The meticulous examination of copies in public as well as private collections, extensive research in copyright records and publishers' archives, and a remarkable degree of accuracy make BAL one of the monumental bibliographies of the twentieth century." -- James L. Harner, Literary Research Guide, fourth edition

Compiled by Jacob Blanck and completed by Michael Winship and Virginia L. Smyers, the Bibliography of American Literature (9 volumes, 1955 – 1991) provides more than 37,000 records of the literary works of 281 American writers from the period of the Revolution to 1930. As Blanck explains in his preface, the Bibliography of American Literature "present(s) a list of American works which, for any reason, were considered significant in American, not necessarily world, literature. . . . What concerns us is that at one time these books were read and for a span held positions of sorts in American letters. This, therefore, is the native literature America read in book form."
