J.K. Rowling: A Bibliography will be published on April 12, 2014 in the UK, and December 18 in the US, and is written by Philip A. Errington, the Director for Children’s Books within the Department of Printed Books and Manuscripts at Sotheby’s. The book is 448 pages long, and Amazon.com lists it on their website for $114. It will be published by Bloomsbury Academic, so we take this as being more of a textbook than anything.
Here’s the synopsis, via Amazon.com:
This is the definitive bibliography of the writings of J. K. Rowling. In addition to complete bibliographic details of all her books, pamphlets, original contributions to published works and broadcasts, there is detailed information on Rowling at auction, on significant reviews and on scholarly work on Rowling. This will be the first source on Rowling consulted by textual scholars, book collectors, auction houses, critics and researchers. The aim of the book is to record fact and dispel rumour on the fascinating publishing history of the Harry Potter series.
J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury have not announced anything about the book formally, but we expect an announcement of some sort soon. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with the latest, so be sure to return for the latest details.
