Czech and Slovak Literature in English (1988) is a bibliography of Czech and Slovak works in translation, reaching back to the first known work in 1832 and ending in 1986. This bibliography was intended to be as complete as possible, but had no claims to being comprehensive. Previously, the only comparable bibliography had been published in 1967 and had covered works published only through 1960.

Czech and Slovak Literature in English is divided into five sections:

A. anthologies of prose and poetry

B. anthologies of folklore

C. works of criticism and literary history

D. works by individual Czech authors

E. works by individual Slovak authors

The entries include Library of Congress call numbers or symbols for other major American libraries, as recorded in the National Union Catalog. In some cases, holdings of the British Library are indicated. The entries in the first three sections are numbered. Sections A and B are arranged chronologically, while entries in all the other sections are arranged alphabetically, by author. Works included in section C deal with Czech and Slovak literature in general; criticism of individual writers is listed under the names of the authors in sections D and E. Works by individual authors are listed first, followed by works about them.

This bibliography is also linked to the corresponding entry in the Library of Congress online catalog. The digitized version presented here may be viewed via "page view" display or searchable .pdf.
