The following list of Lang’s books is incomplete, but it improves upon current listings. I consulted Roger Lancelyn Green’s Andrew Lang: A Critical Biography, WorldCat, the Andrew Lang Wikipedia page, and Internet Archive. Whenever possible, I tried to provide a scan or full text of the work and to get the dates correct. I do still recommend checking WorldCat on the dates if you are researching a particular title. I have sorted some of the books into categories (see above), but those pages are incomplete. If there is a discrepancy between dates on the two pages, the list below is more likely to be accurate. (But check.)
Notes on the format: I listed works where Lang was author, editor, or translator in the general list under each year. Whenever Lang wrote the preface or introduction of a book he edited or translated himself, those also appear in the general list. If Lang wrote only an introduction or preface to a work written or edited by someone else, I usually list that work separately under introductions and prefaces for that year. I do make exceptions to this rule when Lang’s introduction takes up a substantial part of the work, as was the case with Aristotle’s Politics, translated by W. E. Bolland (1877), and I list the fairy books and children’s books in the general list as well, though some of the books for children were written by Leonora Blanche Lang (which I note in the entries).
What’s missing: I have not yet combed through WorldCat year by year to sort through their Andrew Lang entries, nor have I rechecked the catalogues of the St Andrews Collection and the Lilly Library. In WorldCat, a search for “Lang, Andrew” as author for the year 1887 alone yields fifty-four results. As a keyword search, “Andrew Lang” in 1887 yields sixty-one. Many of these listings are reprints/new editions of Lang’s work, some are magazine articles, one or two are by a different Andrew Lang, a few are misattributed, and some ought to be included in the list below. While I hope to get to this task eventually, please do feel free to contact me if you have evidence for an important missing entry or wish to submit a correction. It is also important to note that WorldCat itself has missing or incorrect entries. Sometimes earlier dates exist in Internet Archive scans; sometimes titles are only known from Roger Lancelyn Green’s biography (or other places), and Green’s biography also has a few typos and errors (as I’m sure I also do below).
One note on my dates: I generally chose to list books under earliest date I could find. Thus, if Roger Lancelyn Green, or Internet Archive, or WorldCat gave the earliest date, I put the work under that year. If the date seems uncertain, I do note when there is a discrepancy.
- St Leonards Magazine. 1863. As phrased on Wikipedia, “This was a reprint of several articles that appeared in the St Leonards Magazine that Lang edited at St Andrews University. Includes the following Lang contributions: Pages 10–13, Dawgley Manor; A sentimental burlesque; Pages 25–26, Nugae Catulus; Pages 27–30, Popular Philosophies; pages 43–50 are ‘Papers by Eminent Contributors’, seven short parodies of which six are by Lang.” More information is available in IUCAT, as the Lilly Library holds this copy at Indiana University. Some manuscript copies of the St Leonard’s Magazine are available at the University of St Andrews, including the 1863 copy [uncatalogued when last I checked, but Lang’s work appears in MS30130-30142]. Lang had left for Glasgow to study for the Snell Exhibition in the summer of 1863, but as Roger Lancelyn Green notes, “continued to contribute to the Leonard’s Magazine, sending reviews, drawings and sets of verses” (Andrew Lang 27).
- Ballads and Lyrics of Old France (Longmans, Green, 1872) [This Internet Archive scan is of the 1913 New Impression, about which Lang writes in the preface, “Moved by the request of a friend too partial to ‘my early blights,’ in the phrase of Keats, I have consented to reprint ‘Ballads and Lyrics of Old France’ exactly as they appeared in 1872. Modified versions of some of the pieces have been published at various dates; they are now given in their pristine form, with the correction of two or three misprints.
- Aristotle’s Politics Books I. III. IV. (VII.). The Text of Bekker. With an English translation by W. E. Bolland. Together with short introductory essays by A. Lang The “short introductory essays” last through page 106. (Longmans, Green, 1877). [The Internet Archive scan is dated 1887.]

I was not then aware that copyright in Poe’s Poems still lived, and his heirs or assigns are very welcome to my share in the gains of an unconscious piracy. They have only to apply at the Sign of the Ship” (106)].

(Paris 1886) According to Wikipedia, “Never published as a complete book in English, although there was a Polish translation.

- He, by the author of ‘It’, ‘King Solomon’s wives’, and ‘Bess’ [i.e A. Lang and W.H. Pollock]. (Longmans, 1887 with Walter Herries Pollock, parody of H. Rider Haggard’s She. Both the original and the parody were published by Longman.) Do note that Lang was not the author of another parody titled King Solomon’s Wives, or the Phantom Mines (London: Vizetelly & Co., 1887; New York: George Munro, 1887). Roger Lancelyn Green attributes this work to Chatres Biron (Andrew Lang 123). It is also unlikely that Lang wrote “Bess”: a Companion to “Jess.” (New York: John W. Lovell, 1887). No parody entitled It exists.

- Beauty and the Beast. Introduction to Charles Lamb’s version. (London: Field & Tuer, The Leadenhall Press, 1887).
- Ballads of Books [Edited by Andrew Lang], (Longmans, Green, 1888). As Lang states in his preface: “This collection, ‘Ballads of Books,’ is a recast of the volume of the same name, edited by Mr. Brander Matthews, and published by Mr. Coombes (New York, 1887). An editor must be meddling, and I have altered Mr. Mathew’s work in some respects. The poems are now arranged by the dates of their authors . . . . Mr. Matthews’s dedication is preserved, and this English edition comes to a Poet and a Book-collector with good will from both the American and English editors” (vii)
- Border Ballads. [Preface and Editing] (London: Lawrence and Bullen; New York: Longmans, Green). Roger Lancelyn Green dates this book to 1888 (243); however WorldCat’s records only show copies from 1895, the date of this scan The Ballads include “Thomas the Rhymer,” “Tamlane,” “The Wife of Usher’s Well,” “Clerk Saunders,“ “Sir Roland, “”The Demon Lover,” “Love Gregor, or the Lass of Lochrovan,” “The Twa Sisters of Binnorie,” “Helen of Kirkconnel,” “The Twa Corbies,” “Edom o’ Gordon,” and “The Douglas Tragedy.” A glossary is in the back.
