Chronological Bibliography


Recommended Posts

Most Bibliographies are done alphabeticaly by author's last name.

Does anyone know of a chronological bibliography of books published on the JFK assassination?

That is, done in order of publicaiton?

Thanks,

BK

No, but I understand that the British Library in London has a policy of acquiring every book published anywhere?

They have a online searchable database. One can enter key words and sort according to year for example 'fitzgerald' 'kennedy' yielded 528 results to look through.

just 'kennedy' from year 1963 to 2009 yields 5245 results

Hi John,

Thanks for the comeback, and the US Library of Congress also has a large collection, though I am intereseted in just the most significant JFK assassination books and articles that are sourced for references, but I want them in chronolgical order rather than by author.

Maybe if there is a very recent updated bibliography on line I can reconfigure it by date?

Also, thanks for the lead on Sykes, what a guy.

The earliest JFK book to postulate conspiracy is Red Roses from Texas, by Nerin Gun, published by Frederick Muller in 1964.

Rumor has it that the US embassy in London bought up all but a few copies of the first and only press run. If you can find a F/F copy today, expect to spend between $300 and $1,000.

I purchased mine from Andy at The Last Hurrah (which also is the last word on JFK-related books and other publications) about 15 years ago. I remember paying $200.

In fact there is little of value to be found in RRFT. For completists only, as they say. Check www.abebooks.com if you're interested.

The Mary Ferrell website has a book section; but it probably doesent work for a non-member; at any rate if you search by year, it presents the best chronology of books on the assassination of JFK I am aware of.......

Also, there is a book section on this site.....http://members.aol.com/mrohlee/

Title page is The JFK Assassination Book Review Page ........

Also FYI, there is a book that is very hard to come by......and does not appear to be listed on the MFF book section....

It is entitled

A Man of Intelligence: Memoirs of War, Peace and the CIA

by General Charles P. Cabell USAF

Thanks Robert,

I found a HSCA Chronological Bibliography, just what I was looking for, that stops in the late 70s. Now if this could be updated it would be fantastic.

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...p;relPageId=745

Also, Does the Cabell autobio say where he was playing golf on April 17th, 1963, when the Bay of Pigs was getting underway?

Bill, In his book the General makes no mention of playing golf on the day of the invasion April 17, 1961, or otherwise for that matter.

However, as can be expected considering the controversy over the "cancellation of the air-strikes," there is quite a deal of info re the BOP in general.....
