A Supplement to Shaw 24's Selected Bibliography of Writings By and About Bernard Shaw Concerning Love, Sex, Marriage, Women, and Related Topics

Prefatory Note: This Supplement extends the "Selected Bibliography" published in SHAW, The Annual of Bernard Shaw Studies 24 (2004), which I had termed a "preliminary compilation." In Section A, references in brackets are to Dan H. Laurence's Bernard Shaw: A Bibliography (Oxford: Clarendon, 1983). For many of the entries in Section B, I am most grateful to Charles A. Carpenter's indispensable compilation, "A Selective, Classified International Bibliography of Publications about Bernard Shaw: Works from 1940 to Date, with Appendix of Earlier Works" (2004), which appeared shortly after SHAW 24 went to press.
