Janheinz Jahn was a most painstaking bibliographer. With publications such as Die neoafrikanische Literatur: Gesamtbibliographie von den Anfängen bis zur Gegenwart (1965) and Bibliography of Creative African Writing (1971 with Claus Peter Dressler), he was one of the first scholars to attempt to compile a comprehensive bibliographic record of literary works by (neo-)African writers. His pioneering bibliographic work represents a significant contribution to research on African literatures.

It is hoped that further bibliographies will follow; proposals are welcome.
