William Hone — Short Title Bibliography

This Short Title Bibliography is designed for quick reference to the more prominent works written, published, or edited by William Hone. For more complete bibliographical detail and very brief (i.e. one- or two-sentence) descriptions of the works, readers should consult Annotated Bibliography. Readers seeking critical, historical, or other secondary materials can find an appropriate source listing in William Hone: Secondary Sources.

Neither this file nor the annotated bibliography can pretend to be a complete listing of Hone's works, but together they do offer a reasonably comprehensive view of the nature of Hone's work as a writer and publisher.
