Quite frankly, this website and its on-line bibliography wouldn't exist without James Hall and his 1974 James Branch Cabell: A Complete Bibliography. This was the first bibliography that attempted to actually list, one by one, all of the various states and printings of not only James Branch Cabell's many books, but also the books he contributed to, and those about him as well. To us today, accustomed to the the tools available on the internet and using modern computers, the effort that this work took is jaw-dropping. The amazing thing about this book is not that he missed a handful of the many states and issues of books in the canon, but that he missed so few.
