III. The Bibliographers The Pioneer Bibliography J. Don Vann (bio) In 1965 I had my initiation into Victorian periodicals when I began my dissertation on the critical reception of David Copperfield in London newspapers. At the time the study of periodicals was pretty much virgin territory, but I did have a slight introduction through two of my professors at Texas Tech. Knowing that Alan Lang Strout had done pioneering work on Blackwood's Magazine , I sat down with the run in the library and became immediately hooked. Also, I had an excellent guide in my major professor, Roger Brooks, who had used London newspapers in his dissertation on Matthew Arnold.

I could see that such an annual list would be valuable to all sorts of researchers, especially those working on the history of particular magazines and newspapers, for annual resources such as Year's Work in English Studies were not detailed enough to indicate casual references to periodicals. Also, I could see that an annual bibliography would be a good indicator of the extent to which periodicals were being used in research, as well as serving, perhaps, to encourage further research.
