Summary/Abstract: Review: Czesław Miłosz. Bibliografia druków zwartych [a bibliography of book-formatted publications authored by C. Miłosz], ed. by Agnieszka Kosińska, with contributions from Jacek Błach and Kamil Kasperek, Warszawa 2009. This monumental book is the first complete bibliography encompassing all book-length items (self-contained publications) of the Polish Nobel-Prize winning author, including major scientific and popular studies on his work. The book consists of just under a thousand running printed pages, its content being divided into fourteen thematic chapters. The content (apart from the Introduction and Annex) is indexed in Chapter 16, which encompasses (over more than 300 pages!) three types of index, all of which should prove extremely useful to literary scholars: titles of works; personal names, and titles of periodicals.
