This bibliography is in two parts. The first lists the books which were either written by James Daugherty or were illustrated by him. It is in alphabetical order, generally by author. The second part is a compilation of the books, articles and audio-visual materials with references to James Daugherty.

When Daugherty moved to Connecticut from New York City in 1923, he had already established his reputation as an accomplished modernist painter, as a pioneering muralist, and as an illustrator for magazines. He had also provided illustrations for a few books by that time. In the ensuing half century, he was destined to become one of America’s foremost book illustrators/authors with 104 books to his credit.

Of the 104 books, Daugherty was the author of 15 of them. His wife, Sonia, wrote eight of them, and his son, Charles, was the author of two. He was breathtakingly prolific; in the year 1928 alone, 11 books were published with his illustrations. His favorite topics were American history, Biblical excerpts, the settling of America, and historical American figures such as Lincoln, Jefferson, Daniel Boone, and Lewis and Clark. His books were published by the leading publishers of the day: Houghton Mifflin, Oxford University Press, Harcourt Brace, Doubleday, Little Brown, Macmillan, Viking, Random House, to mention a few.

He was nationally recognized for his achievements. He was awarded the Newbery Medal in 1940 for his illustrations for his own text of Daniel Boone, and he won two Caldecott Honor medals, in 1938 for his Andy and the Lion and in 1957 for his illustrations for Benjamin Elkin’s Gillespie and the Guards.
