Bibliography is the study and description of books. There are two types, enumerative and analytical. An enumerative, or systematic, bibliography is a list of books categorized by author, by subject, by location, by the time period published or as having been mentioned in a particular work. The later is often referred to as a reference list. An analytical, or critical, bibliography is the critical study of a book as an object. There are three types of analytical bibliography, descriptive, historical and textual. Textual bibliographies are also referred to as textual criticisms.
