A Calendar of Rizaliana in the Vault of the Philippine National Library
Winner, National Book Award, Bibliography, 1993
After completing the process of research and authentication that led to the publication of the drafts of Rizal’s hitherto unpublished third novel Makamisa, Ambeth Ocampo surveyed his field notes and discovered that he had completed an inventory of the precious and inaccessible Rizal manuscripts and materials in the vault of the Philippine National Library. Arranged chronologically to become a bibliographical calendar, this book is not a mere listing, but includes descriptive details, annotations, and even an abstract in English of most manuscripts.
