“It will no doubt be useful for those interested in Georgia authors to have these annual listings collected in one volume”
—South Atlantic Bulletin
Starting in 1949, John W. Bonner Jr. compiled an annual annotated bibliography of books by Georgia writers for the Georgia Review. Published in 1966, this volume contains sixteen years of publications by native-born Georgian authors and authors who had lived in the state for at least five years. Books are listed by author, title, publisher, date, and price of the work. The annotations are descriptive rather than critical, intended to outline what type of material is contained in the books. A complete index by author is included.
John W. Bonner, Jr. was head of special collections at the University of Georgia Library, past president of the Kershaw County Historical Society, and a past board member of Historic Camden, where the library is named in his honor.
