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



The growth of the Reference Catalogue of Current Literature has been steadily continued since its first publication in 1874, when one of its recommendations in the "8OOKS£LLER" of February in that year, was that "a customer, if undecided with respect to his purchase, might take the Catalogue home to consult at his leisure." As an instance of this expansion it may be mentioned that in the issue for 1894, the last in one volume, the Index contained 87,000 entries, the volume weighing 15 lb. In that for 1898, the first published in two volumes, there were 96,000 entries, and in the present issue, the first to have an entirely separate Index Volume, there are close on 185,000 entries, the index extending to no fewer than 1,087 pages and forming in itself a book of no mean dimensions. The weight of the three volumes is nearly 28 lb., containing the catalogues either extended or condensed, of one hundred and ninety-five publishers: scarcely a book for the pocket.

The magnitude of the present undertaking is thus clearly intimated. The mere writing of the entries, each on a separate slip, and their subsequent sorting into alphabetical order, followed by the arrangement into a single alphabet, together with the proof reading, is a work necessarily of concentration and steady application extending over a period of several months; as the final sorting must necessarily be done by one pair of hands. Our thanks are also due to the printer, Messrs. Unwin Brothers, Ltd., for very careful reading.

In a few instances, the references may be found not quite accurate. This is due to the fact that one or two of the Catalogues now printed do not exactly coincide with those supplied for indexing purposes: but, in almost every case, publishers have co-operated in the heartiest manner, with the result that the present issue is confidently offered to booksellers and librarians as the most complete attempt yet made to provide them with an indispensable and never failing equipment for their every-day work.
