I have not listed the many illustrated guide-books giving details of Selous and Burford's panoramas as these are not, strictly speaking, illustrated works. The following is as complete a listing of his illustrated books as I could manage. Several items are identified for the first time; I have also deleted items which were erroneously included in earlier bibliographies. Many of these publications are extremely rare, and it is quite possible that other works by Selous are still to be identified.
