Chronological List of the Works of Sarah Orne Jewett
Notes

    The basis of this list is A Bibliography of the Published Writings of Sarah Orne Jewett, compiled by Clara Carter Weber and Carl J. Weber.  Waterville, Maine: Colby College Press, 1949.  It has been supplemented by independent work and from:
       David Bonnell Green.  "Sarah Orne Jewett's 'A Dark Night.'" The Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America
    53: 331-34 (1959).
       Richard Cary.  "Some Bibliographical Ghosts of Sarah Orne Jewett."  Colby Library Quarterly 8;3 (Sept. 1968) 139-145.

    These sources contain more detailed descriptions of some of the items, especially the books.  This is intended to be as complete a listing as possible, providing an overview of Jewett's professional career, and to offer links to these items at the Sarah Orne Jewett text project and to on-line facsimile and page-images, as they become available.
    Not included on this list are unpublished materials, though a number of these are included in the SOJ-TP.  Most of these are letters and will be found with other letters at the site.  Others are listed in the Alphabetical index.

The Making of America (MOA) and Google Books provide images of many of these texts.  Links to most of these pages are included.

    Items in blue print have not been collected for the SOJ Text Project.  If you have access to a copy, please contact the site manager.
    Also, this list is correctible.  Please send additions and corrections to the site manager.

Notes

Verses was republished for the centennial of Jewett's birth in an edition by Burton Trafton, Jr. (Cleveland: American Weave Press, 1949).  Trafton made a few changes, notably, adding  his brief preface, placing "The Fallen Oak" before the contents list and removing the title from that list, and combining the two opening poems under one title, "To My Father," while retaining the roman numerals to distinguish two parts.
 
*  Kevin Siegfried has given musical settings to "The Boat Song," "The Eagle Trees," and these two poems, re-titling "The Gloucester Mother" as "In Restless Waves."  These were commissioned by the Community Chorus at South Berwick and premiered in its 2005-6, 30th anniversary season performance, "The River Runs Through Us."  They are available on the album: Simple Gifts:  http://www.gothic-catalog.com/Simple_Gifts_Tudor_Choir_Doug_Fullington_director_p/g-49265.htm

**"Boat Song" also was set to music, apparently by Richard Hoffman (1813-1909), and published by G. Schirmer of New York in 1879.  However, a copy of this setting has not been located.  See John Austin Parker, "Sarah Orne Jewett's 'Boat Song.'" American Literature 23:1 (March 1951) 133-136, who notes that the Library of Congress has a copy.  To find a copy and present an image of it as part of the SOJ Text Project would be good.  Assistance would be appreciated.
