Published for James Laughlin: A New Directions list of Publications, 1936-1997

Compiled by John A. Harrison, Rebecca Newth, and Anne Marie Candido

Some things are done on a shoestring. Some ideas are hatched in a desperate and pioneering spirit. My husband was a young man when he approached the Boss and asked to do the bibliography, and I was an on-looker and mere reader of the black and white books that gave us Rilke and Garcia Lorca and Rimbaud. --from the Preface, by Rebecca Newth, Published for James Laughlin

A checklist of books published by New Directions Publishing from 1937 to 1997 with facsimiles and index.

James Laughlin

Many of James Laughlin's books were published in very limited and expensive editions and are difficult to find. However, he regularly made selected and collected editions of his work, so that most of the material in the limited editions is available at a reasonable price. Also, copies of his books reside within collections in major research libraries, especially Yale's Beinecke Library where the Pound collection is held and where Laughlin served as an advisor, and at Harvard University which houses the New Directions Publishing archive. In addition, Yale holds collections of other New Directions authors such as William Carlos Williams, Delmore Schwartz, and H.D. (Hilda Doolittle) and these archives contain much early ephemera of New Directions.
