?. . . For scholars, the most important part of this excellent new bibliography is the listing of 105 previously undocumented compositions without opus numbers. . . . Bowles's annotations increase the reference value of the work. . . . the production of the book is also outstanding, with a pleasing format, dark typeface, quality paper, and good binding. All concerned with this scholarly reference work are to be congratulated.?-American Reference Books Annual
