Readers new to this page are advised to first read the general introduction to The Reference Catalogue of Current Literature.



A WORD of explanation is due to Contributors and Subscribers, to account for the delay which has arisen in the issue of this edition of THE REFERENCE CATALOGUE of CURRENT LITERATURE. The usefulness of the volume to both buyers and sellers of books depends almost entirely on the completeness of its Index. It is sufficiently manifest that without the assistance of this key every reference would consume much time, even by those possessing a competent knowledge of Current Literature. It was, therefore, thought desirable to enlarge the scope of the Index to the widest possible extent consistent with the unpretentious character of the work, in the confident belief that additional usefulnes would more than atone for additional time expended in its preparation.

Many persons use the REF£RENCE CATALOGUE who have no special knowledge of books; casual book buyers, or junior assistants in the Trade, for example. An Index which might be sufficient for the experienced bibliopole would not afford much help to these. Instead, therefore, of adhering rigidly to one uniform plan, it was thought better to consider the case of each book separately, and index it under whatever head was most likely to furnish a ready clue. Some books consequently will be found under their subjects, others under their titles, and others, again, under their authors' names. In very many cases, books are entered under both subject and title, and, in special instances, under the author's name also. Every book mentioned in the following pages, with the exception of a few very late additions, may be found under one or more of these heads. The Index will thus furnish, even to those least familiar with books, a ready guide to the particular work they require, or to the entire range of current literature on the subject which interests them. It makes no pretensions to bibliographical excellence -- its aim is simply to be useful.

The volume will be found to contain Lists of the principal Publishers; the few who are absent must make their own explanations to the Trade.
