This book is the first attempt at a comprehensive, international bibliography of literature on Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), worldwide in coverage and accessing literature written between 1848 and 1982 inclusive. Quigley cites more than 4,700 references, including material overlooked in previous compilations. The work is arranged by subject, and extensive cross-referencing and indexes provide systematic access to this body of literature. The compiler has seen over two-thirds of the references. Unique to this book is its emphasis on placing the documentation within its overall bibliographical-historical context.
