?Covering sources for the study of the literary small press since 1960, this bibliography lists 173 sources divided into three major sections: current information, core sources, and supplementary sources. The current information sources include directories, indexes, guides, and trade journals; the core sources address major issues that provide the historical, social, and commercial context within which the small press exists; and the supplementary sources category cites exemplary catalogs, lists, and bibliographies. Overall, Glazier has compiled an invaluable resource for the researcher in the field of small press, containing informed and insightful annotations on well-chosen materials. Recommended for all libraries with an interest in the small presses.?-Library Journal
