This bibliography attempts to set forth a selected list of the most important books and pamphlets about Trenton, rather than a complete list of authorities cited. For lack of space, the many newspaper articles of an historical nature are not included. An account of Trenton newspapers is given in Chapter XV and many of the files will be found in the State Library. The most extensive collection of Trentoniana will be found in the Trenton Free Public Library.
