BARZUN AND TAYLOR'S CLASSIC CRIME NOVELS
Jacques Barzun and Wendell Hertig Taylor in their A Catalogue of Crime (Rev. & Enl. Edition, 1989) include descriptions of works the authors consider Classics of Crime, 1900-1975. Ninety novels are selected by them and are listed below. In the Preface to their indispensable book, the authors write:"...the novice eager to explore can by browsing through our pages discover examples of the type of story he might like. The brief comments give a glimpse of contents and quality, and by stressing certain points help to develop a critical taste. As for the collector who regularly scans dealers' catalogues, he can, by consulting the index and the entry, ascertain facts to guide his purchases. Finally, students of the literature - a growing body inside and outside the academy - will find here a storehouse of materials usable in teaching and research."
