Awarded by the American Library Association/Reference and User Services Association/ History Section/ Bibliography and Indexes Committee: an annual review of best bibliographies in history. Published in Reference & User Services Quarterly 42.4 (Summer 2003): p324(5).Nisbet compiled most of the work between 1940 and 1969, and Kanter prepared it for publication after her death in 1994. Books and pamphlets, but not articles, published in English by subjects of the British Empire from 1832 to 1899 have entries if they refer completely or in part to the territory that would constitute the contiguous United States. Citations include at least one library in the United States or the United Kingdom holding the item, and if the work provoked published reactions, citations for these as well. The 3,211 entries are arranged by year, followed by indexes with all authors and all mentioned titles of the authors, though not of subjects. High standards of accuracy and completeness are observed, and the impact of major authors such as Dickens and R. L. Stevenson is documented with references to related reviews and articles.--James R Niessen, Rutgers University New Brunswick ( )
