In October, 1985, the ExB copy of Gallup's bibliography of Pound [1983 revision, (ExB) Z8709.3 .G3 1983] was checked for the Library's holdings. The bibliography divides EP's writings into forms of text, viz.: Section A covers 106 books and pamphlets by or translated by EP. (Note: several of the 106 units has subdivisions.) Section B lists 126 books and pamphlets with contributions by or edited by EP. Section C lists 1989 contributions to periodicals; Section D covers over 246 translations. (E is Miscellanea.)

Of these sections, only A was checked thoroughly. Of these 106 entries, the Library has 83 in one or another of the edition, issue, or printing listed. In addition, the Library has scattered holdings of the other sections, some of which are marked.

The Library also has a slip catalogue of EP's books as of 1978. The slips cover those books organized by Omar S. Pound and sold to the University of Texas in 1980. The books are now in the Humanities Research Center at Austin. [Catalogue call number is (Ex) PS3531 .O82286 1978s].

For a collection of periodicals in which his works appeared, see the collection entitled Miscellaneous works by Ezra Pound, 1922-1968, which contains various journal issues [(at ReCAP for use in RBSC) PS507 .P68].
