This 10th volume of the New England Bibliographies series represents the efforts of the Committee for a New England Bibliography and its editor, Roger Parks, to keep the series of bibliographies of New England towns, states, and the region current. It combines the entries of Volume 10, parts A, B, and C which were published for subscribers in 1998, 2000, and 2002. The entries are organized under geographical headings and numbered consecutively (replacing the provisional numbers used in the three parts distributed to subscribers earlier). A lengthy author and subject index has been added. The goal for Volume 10 has been to produce a comprehensive bibliography of writings on New England from 1994 (the cutoff date for Volume 9) through 2001. The editor has also continued to update and correct entries from earlier volumes and to cite older titles that have come to his attention.
The volume includes 4461 entries - indicating that writings on New England is a lively field and owning a complete set of these bibliographies is a valuable addition to a research library's reference shelf. The front matter includes location symbols for the books, pamphlets and dissertations listed in Volume 10.
The volume was compiled by Roger Parks who has been the editor since 1981 and is responsible for Volumes 5-10. The work is supervised by a committee of librarians and historians and funded by subscribing libraries. Distributed for A Committee for a New England Bibliography.
