Works by Jacob Abbott

The other bibliographies

The following list was compiled from various sources, including copies I own and works listed in A Bibliography of Jacob Abbot, compiled by Carl J. Weber (Waterville, ME: Colby College Press, 1948). Works are listed in chronological order, by copyright date; to search for individual titles, use Control-F.

For convenience, I’ve listed a few libraries in which copies of these works appear; the library’s copy may be in microform and is not necessarily a first edition. While Abbott’s books were revised, later editions of his fiction are often the same as earlier editions.

Title, date of first publication, date of revised edition [stories in collection, where possible] [W = listed in Weber; LOC = at Library of Congress; AAS = at American Antiquarian Society; MNU = at University of Minnesota]
