Summary

Summary

This work brings the 1954 first edition up to date with over five decades of new bibliographical reference additions all contained in a new two-part supplement. The first part guides the reader through the mass of material published on Hardy in recent decades by providing an annotated bibliography of key works that expand or update the information supplied by Purdy. The second part draws upon the contributions of a number of Hardy scholars in identifying errors in the book as originally published and significant bibliographical information that has become available since that time. Co-published with The British Library.
