Thoroton Society Record Series Volume 42 (2002). A Nottinghamshire bibliography: publications on Nottinghamshire history before 1998. Compiled by Michael Brook

Cover of Nottinghamshire bibliography

This publication by the Thoroton Society of Nottinghamshire in association with the Nottingham Civic Society is a monumental work which is the result of some 12 years of research and editing. It is a catalogue of virtually everything published on Nottinghamshire history between the 17th century and 1998, whether in book, pamphlet or article form. There have been various attempts to compile such a bibliography over the past 150 years, but this is the only one to appear in print. It has been compiled by Michael Brook, a retired local studies librarian formerly in charge of the East Midland Collection at the University of Nottingham.

It lists over 8700 publications and runs to 430 pages, arranged in subject or place order under three major headings: Nottingham Subjects, Nottinghamshire Subjects, and Nottinghamshire Places. In addition there is an index of authors and a select index of places and subjects.

It is an essential reference tool for every major academic or public library and for all serious historians of the County. The detailed bibliographical information is also invaluable to book collectors and dealers.
