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



It will be seen that the present issue of the REFERENCE CATALOGUE OF CURRENT LITERATURE exceeds in size that of any or its predecessors. It contains full or selected lists of about one hundred and thirty publishers, which, for the most part, include all current works issued as late as the Autumn or Winter of 1888.

The Index, on which the value of the REFERENCE CATALOGUE mainly depends, has been very much enlarged. This is partly in consequence of the fulness of the lists contributed by some of the publishers, but is chiefly due to the method employed in its construction. In addition to simple entries under title and author, many books are entered under their subjects, and in special cases, under several subjects. To experts this fulness may appear uncalled for, but it has the advantage of enabling those who possess a very slight acquaintance with literature to find without difficulty a book on any subject or by any author which they require, if it is contained in one of the lists contributed to the REFERENCE CATALOGUE. The total number of entries in the Index exceeds 68,500, which is upwards of 15,000 more than were contained in the Index prefixed to the last issue.

Although the absence is to be regretted of several important lists, as they would have involved further additions to the bulk of a volume already so large, that consideration will probably be thought to lessen the seriousness of the deficiency.
