The Charles De Koninck Bibliography

Welcome to the main bibliography, founded on Armand Gagné’s work from his edited collection Mélanges à la mémoire de Charles De Koninck (Québec: Presses de l’Université Laval, 1968). Since many of De Koninck’s works were republished singly or in collections, The Charles De Koninck Project’s own list consolidates those reprinted versions and collections.
