This bibliography is an attempt to present an annotated list, complete, with the exception of newspaper articles, of John Muir's writings and of works about him. The arrangement of material is alphabetical under the different headings—Muir's writings being followed by the works about him.

For assistance in the preparation of this list thanks are due Professor C. B. Bradley of the University of California, for the use of his "Reference List to the Published Writings of John Muir,” published in 1897† Earlier lists published in the Overland Monthly by E. A. Avery and W. T. Kittredge have also been used.

Miss Doran had found some help in her work from the use of a Reference List made by me in 1897, and on completing it was good enough to remember me with a copy of her manuscript. Being myself under promise to the editor to furnish a bibliography for the forthcoming Muir Memorial number of the SIERRA CLUB BULLETIN, I was of course overjoyed to find the work thus done to my hand, and, as appeared on ex. amination, so well done that very little was left for me to do save to add the publications which have appeared since Miss Doran completed her work, and a few older ones which have recently come to my notice, together with an occasional note of information which seemed worthy of being included in the record. All material so added by me has been included within square brackets. An asterisk indicates that the reference has not been personally verified because the publication itself was not available for verification either in Madison or here in California.

Both Miss Doran and her preceptor have kindly consented to its publication here. And it seems in every way fitting that this—which seems likely to be the definite bibliography-should be the work of a student of John Muir's own university, and should be published by the Sierra Club with which he was ever increasingly identi. fied from its very beginning to the day on which he left us.
