Bolton Hall – sketch for a bibliography

It’s been awhile since i’ve put together any new bibliographies. Since there seems to be interest in non-state Georgism, i guess i’ll keep at my work on Bolton Hall. At this stage, I’m concentrating on WorldCat, Union Catalog and bookseller records, so i’m getting mostly book-length works. He was extremely prolific, so the list of shorter publications will be extensive. In any event, here’s a start:

Other documents authored by Hall exist at U. Mich. in the Labadie collection and Bentley History Library (“Sunrise Cooperative Farm Community records, 1933-1937.”). And the New-York Historical Society lists this interesting collection:

  1. Were to hoping to acquire copies of any of the documents available at the Labadie collection? I’m on a work hiatus until the end of August (I’m out of town), but I work in the same building as the Labadie collection. I’d be willing to make some photocopies and send them to ya if there is anything that you are especially interested in.
