An alphabetical bibliography of works cited in the Chronology of Science in the United States 1790-1910 (at this site).
The bibliography is generally organized by author (with some title entries, including periodicals) and gives more specific and complete citation information than provided in the chronology itself. The citations are linked to the appropriate entries in the chronology, which often give additional information about the circumstances, nature, or significance of the publication. In all cases, the surrounding chronology entries will provide general context for the work.
