This bibliography provides the first complete and copy-based record of the production of new English fiction in the period 1810-1829. The main listings include 2,256 entries, all but forty of which are based on examination of a first edition of the actual novel described. As a result of ten years of Anglo-German co-operation the bibliography makes especial use of the recently discovered collection of English novels of Schloss Corvey in Germany, whose holdings in English fiction 1796-1834 almost certainly exceed those held by any other library. This book also includes an extensive historical introduction by Peter Garside that offers a comprehensive overview of the main aspects of production, marketing and reception of fiction in the Romantic era.

"It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of this monumental work...Both the bibliography and the introduction show the importance of the new branch of literary studies known as book history...With the availability of The English Novel 1770-1829, criticism of British literature ...can enter a new phase."--ECCB
