These early writings were more about keeping historical records than of creating something with literary value, so these works would be narratives, descriptions, observations, reports, journals, and histories.
The catalogue in I. A Memoir does not provide numbers for the books listed there, and is known to be incomplete. It also has a number of typographical errors.

Many of the books published after his th can be found by going through such sources as Books In Print or the Library of Congress online catalog. However, since Asimov often did not count as "his" books those on which a publisher merely slapped his name, these sources cannot be taken as complete.
