Books About New Hampshire

Table of Contents        Title Index

bridge The New Hampshire State Library first published Books About New Hampshire in 1946. Updated editions were published in 1955, 1962, 1965 and 1969. In 1979 the New Hampshire Department of Education published New Hampshireiana: Books of New Hampshire 1969-1979. This brochure continued the work begun by the State Library in 1946. Entries in New Hampshireiana were obtained from the "New Hampshire Books" column in each issue of Granite State Libraries. This column, by Eleanor O'Donnell of the State Library, showcases new books about New Hampshire or by New Hampshire authors. The column is still being published in Granite State Libraries.

This publication incorporates most of the information in the earlier Books About New Hampshire and New Hampshireiana plus the "New Hampshire Books" column through mid 1999. In editing and organizing the material, I have purposely excluded certain types of books. Listed below are the types of books generally NOT included in this bibliography:

General histories of New Hampshire
Town histories
Travel guides
      Regimental histories
Books about New England
Local cookbooks
Government documents

Do not consider this guide to be a comprehensive bibliography of all books about New Hampshire. However, it should be helpful to people interested in New Hampshire literature.
