Bartlett is generally supposed to have drawn the quotations in his book from his own extensive reading and prodigious memory and a commonplace book he kept.

In , he privately printed his compilation as A Collection of Familiar Quotations. This first edition contained pages of quotations by authors, chiefly the Bible , William Shakespeare , and the great English poets.

Kennedy had Jonathan Siegel, who edited the Macmillan Book of Political Quotations , said Kaplan was "an insult to the memory of John Bartlett and the ideologically inclusive spirit of the first fifteen editions. Similar criticisms were leveled against his editing of the seventeenth edition which included entries for the first time from J. Rowling , Jerry Seinfeld , and Larry David.
