This second enlarged edition of Gerard Tougas' Checklist is essentially a primary bibliography of French-Canadian literature from the nineteenth century to 1968. The Checklist, containing over 2800 titles, represents the holdings of the University of British Columbia Library. The UBC collection comprises a substantial portion of the total body of work published in this field. Included are books, pamphlets and microfilms. In this bibliography, the term literature has been interpreted to include separately published chronicles, literary criticism, biographies, and folklore as well as novels, poetry, drama and short stories. The second edition has been expanded to include bibliographies and theses.
