Howells Queries: Compendium of reviews?

Hello, all. I’ve been searching without much luck to see if anyone has compiled reviews of William Dean Howells’ works as they came out, similar to Routlege’s Critical Heritage series, or the kind of appendices common to Broadview and Norton Critical editions. Aside from some contemporaneous reviews included amongst the longer critical pieces in Edwin Cady’s The War of the Critics over William Dean Howells, I don’t find any such animal. The Selected Edition has plenty of good textual notes, but no critical appendices, so far as I can see. Does anyone here know if any such resource has been put together, in print or online?
