The Ignatius Press, San Francisco, is in the course of publishing The Collected Works of G. K. Chesterton in about fifty volumes, with a concluding biblio-graphy by Geir Hasnes; these are referred to as C.W., followed by the appropriate volume and page numbers. John Sullivan's bibliography, to which reference is made in the text as 'Sullivan', followed by a reference number, is in three parts: G. K. Chesterton: a Bibliography (1958), Chesterton Continued (1968), Chesterton Three (Bedford, 1980).
