The following list of Reynolds’s publications is based the bibliography available at the University of Pennsylvania’s Online Books Page (, which John Mark Ockerbloom edits. The ODNB entry on the novelist has provided additional titles plus as list of periodicals Reynolds edited. Since some of the author’s books appeared without dates on their title pages, and others that are dated list previous publications, I have used these title pages to provide approximate dates.

Unless otherwise noted, all books are (a) available online at the Hathi Trust Digital Library, (b) published by J. Dicks of London.

*** = books listed on the title page of one of Reynolds’s published works but unlocated, and therefore they might not belong to the category suggested.

•• = a book published before or during before 1856, since it is listed on title page of Ellen Percy (1856). — George P. Landow

Some dates provided, particularly those after 1860, come from reprints or later editions and do not provide accurate year of first publication.
