Select Bibliography of Other Significant Victorian Crusades Literature

This bibliography, like this project on Victorian crusades romances as a whole, is not intended to be in any way exhaustive.  Instead, it points towards a number of works that were not included in this study that would be of interest a scholar who wished to pursue the subject further.

N.B.  Elizabeth Siberry's The New Crusaders lists the poem as Richard Coeur de Lion and the author as Henry Bland Burges.  These designations, however, do not seem to be supported by either contemporary or modern sources.  The poem is universally listed as Richard the First and the author is named as Sir James Bland Burges.
