Abstract/Description: "Quite aside from her books about India, Miss Godden has contributed notably in another area of great interest to American readers, that of childhood and adolescence. There is increasing consciousness of the importance of comprehending the inner life of children, so that adults may deal more sympathetically with their problems. Miss Godden writes with sensitivity and subtlety of the thoughts, emotions and values which children cannot express for themselves. For these reasons, Rumer Godden seemed to be an author well worth studying as a subject for a bio-bibliography. This choice was confirmed by checking the Standard Catalog for High School Libraries, the Standard Catalog for Public Libraries, the Fiction Catalog, and the Bookman's Manual which list a generous number of her works. The decision to do a bio-bibliography was made in order to obtain skill in bibliographic research as an essential tool for the librarian. The paper is limited to the books for adults and excludes the books written for children and stories and articles which have appeared in periodicals"--Introduction.
