I. Works by Shaw2

Shaw, Bernard. Androcles and the Lion; Overruled; Pygmalion. Nabu Press, 2010. See footnote 2 below for information on Nabu Press. Its 50+ listings for works by Shaw on, on 27 April 2010, far outnumber those of every other press.
———. “Appreciation.” Einstein on Cosmic Religion and Other Opinions and Aphorisms. Mineola, New York: Dover Publications, 2009. Not seen.
———. “Bernard Shaw.” Entered in Bonham’s New Bond Street, London, auction catalogue, Sale 16811, for 23 June 2009, reaches 31 listings between entries 133 and 176, many of letters and important editions of works by Shaw. Bonham’s main website provides a non-fee accessible [End Page 272] archive (go to “sale results”), which includes a printable, user tool-friendly version of all text and graphics of this catalogue; thus, the first page, offered as photographed, of autograph letters can be read in high definition. A listing of hammer prices is included in “sales results” catalogues. Contact of auction winners of items is possible in many cases through Bonham’s with several paths of communication with its offices, including phone numbers, provided on the website. The serendipity of learning of this research aid for discovery of fugitive primary materials for Shaw suggests that exploration of websites of other major auction companies may also be rewarding. Thanks to Richard Dietrich for the initial advice to check auction listings at Bonham’s.
