This is the first descriptive bibliography of the works of Malcolm Lowry, author of Under the Volcano, one of the masterpieces of 20th-century literature. Volcano has gone into more than 40 printings in its various English language editions, as well as having been translated into 19 other languages. Under the Volcano was the centerpiece of a work in progress to be called The Voyage that Never Ends, a work that Lowry did not live to finish. When it first appeared in 1947, it was hailed everywhere as a major publishing event. The bibliography describes all of Lowry's books and pamphlets, listing every printing of each edition. Each of the book entries is illustrated with photographs of dust jackets, title pages, and copyright pages. There are 23 listings for contributions to books, 224 for contributions to periodicals, including descriptions of all of Lowry's contributions to his school paper, and 73 foreign language books and periodicals. Radio, television, film, recordings, and song lyrics are also fully described. Well-illustrated. Distributed by Oak Knoll Press.
