Sources Used by LZ

Although certainly not exhaustive, the following attempts to be a reasonably complete list of the sources LZ used in “A”, as well as listing those editions referred to in Z-site notes. Major editions used in works other than “A” are included, although no attempt has been made to list every work and edition used in Bottom, but the notes to that work include information of this nature. LZ was not shy about using quotations and material picked up in more ephemeral sources, particularly the New York Times, or using reading notes sent to him by Lorine Niedecker and perhaps others. Consequently, unless the source can be confidently identified as in the family library, it is not always certain he actually read the book. As much as possible, I have listed editions and translations that we can be reasonably certain LZ used, but this cannot be guaranteed in all cases. Books marked with a asterisk (*) are those we know LZ owned or were in the family library at one time or another, although the editions or printings listed may not be precisely those LZ used (see LZ Library).


The majority of these texts and the exact editions LZ used are now available online—particularly at the Internet Archive . Another useful source for texts of the older editions of the Loeb Classical Library and other invaluable tools is the Perseus Digital Library (Tufts University).
