  1. Please add Chesnutt, Charles W. Frederick Douglass. Ed. Ernestine W. Pickens. Atlanta: Clark Atlanta
    UP, 2001. to The Selected Bibliography on Charles W. Chesnutt. It is possible that this work has not received the publicity that it deserves because the UP no longer exists. There are extensive notes on each chapter and an excellent introduction by William L. Andrews. Copies are available in various libraries.
