Faulkner, a Comprehensive Guide to the Brodsky Collection (Magill's Literary Annual 1985)
Faulkner, a Comprehensive Guide to the Brodsky Collection: Volume II, The Letters is the second of a multivolume project of Louis Daniel Brodsky, Robert Hamblin, and the University Press of Mississippi. The purpose of the project is to catalog and publish the significant items in Brodsky’s large and growing collection of materials relating to William Faulkner. Volume 1, The Biobibliography (1982), lists and describes the approximately three-thousand items in the collection, housed at the University of Mississippi, as of 1982. Volume 3, The De Gaulle Story (1984), prints a previously unpublished screenplay which Faulkner wrote in 1942 for Warner Bros. The publisher indicates that the next volume will be Battle Cry, a screenplay written during World War II for Howard Hawks. Other volumes which may follow include a collection of Faulkner’s Warner Bros. scripts, a manuscript collection, and a supplement to The Biobibliography.

This second volume contains nearly five hundred letters and telegrams...
