Verlag: Garland Publishing, New York & London, 1983 reprint of 1938 first edition
Auflage: 1st Edition
Cloth, small 8vo, xiv, 201,  pp. Approximately 750 entries on Hume. From the preface: "This work is offered as an objective record of one of the most remarkable phases of two centuries of Scottish culture. What I first set my hand to was a bibliography of Hume alone; but the search for contemporary literature about him brought me into the presence of a national philosophical activity so much richer than even M'Cosh's Scottish Philosophy had led me to expect that I felt obliged to make of it too a bibliographical record. What thus began as an appendix has grown bigger than the original part.Of Hume's works every edition that appeared in his lifetime ha«, I believe, been catalogued here, and probably almost all the subsequent editions whether in English or in translation. The list of writings about him is incomplete., but it is full enough to give a proportioned view of the range, geographical as well as chronological, of the interest he excited. One work, an abstract of the Treatise (p. 14), is here referred to Hume which has hitherto been attributed to Adam Smith ; it does not seem to have been known at first hand by Hume's biographers and expositors. None of these mentions his responsibility for the publication of an English version of a German's memoirs of Russia (p. 39). Among the incidental scraps that a bibliography can give-may be mentioned the noting of a cancel in the first edition of the Principles of Morals (p. 22), the dating on strictly bibliographical grounds of his Scotticisms (p. 26), and the tracing of the changes of contents in the successive editions of the Essays. Where possible, the original prices of Hume's books, his agreements with his publishers, the time taken to write a work, and the interval between the despatch of a manuscript and its publication, have been noted, as data for the student of the history of authorship and publishing."
