Cabell's Contributions to Books

This section of the Bibliography covers books to which Cabell made an original contribution; it does not include books which reprint Cabell material originally appearing elsewhere. Until we find the time to list all these items, as found in Brewer, Hall, and other sources, we are posting only such items as we have had occasion to link to from the Bibliographies or other places on the site. In the meantime most of this material can be seen in Brewer, pp. 73-116, and Hall, pp. 123-34 & 199-200.
