I was curious about the previous six collections, so I could avoid a duplication if I was going to record, but could only find one "First Chapters" collection (for works published in 1916) when I searched the catalog.

How can I see the listings for the previous collections?

I was looking for them as well. This is what I found. I’m assuming these are the previous collections:

I have made a list of works in the earlier collections. Would it be worth posting it here? ... or perhaps store in an appropriate wiki?

It doesn't matter if it is a repeat... I just won't include two in the same collection.

I made the list primarily for my own use, so I could see what had been done already.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to maintain the tab formatting, (so I've separated with a dash) but here you go.
