Synopsis

Following its long tradition of groundbreaking reference works, the Swedenborg Society is proud to present volume one of Norman Ryder's multi-volume Bibliography.

This monumental work is one of the most helpful and thoughtful research tools to be published by any Swedenborgian publisher at any time, and as a work of scholarship it is comparable to Pott’s six-volume Concordance and John Chadwick/Jonathan Rose’s masterful A Lexicon to the Theological Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg. It contains snippets of delightful information on all of Swedenborg’s works, with biographical and textual asides, but more importantly, for the scholar, librarian, editor or researcher, it also offers a complete picture of Swedenborg’s output as a body of work. Once purchased this book will be an indispensable addition to any library, whether professional or private.

Volume one contains records of all publications (and their subsequent editions and translations) from 1700 to 1742

Volume two contains records of all publications (and their subsequent editions and translations) from 1743-1755

Volume three contains records of all publications (and their subsequent editions and translations) from 1756-1762
