An Index of “Marginalia” Printings, 1844-1902

This list includes all of the entries printed in one of these editions, under the general title of “Marginalia.” The main sequence reflects the original order of publication (M), carefully followed in Pollin (P). Subsequent editions are Griswold, 1850 (G); Ingram, 1874-1875 (I); Stedman and Woodberry, 1894-1895 (SW); and Harrison, 1902 (H). The Topic/Subject entries are generally taken from Pollin’s summary table, or from the short titles assigned by Ingram. In a few instances, a new entry has been created specifically for this table.
