PREFACE.

The following catalogue contains the titles of the principal books purchased for and presented to the Library during the year 1881. It consists of twelve classified "Monthly Bulletins", a subject index, and an index of authors, anonymous works and collections.

As in the volume for 1880, the classification is simply for convenience, not at all pretending to scientific or bibliographical perfection. As a key to the most recent additions to the Library, it will be found serviceable. Friends of the Public Library will confer a favor if they will kindly communicate to the Librarian the correction of any error they may discover in the BULLETINS, or the authorship of any works treated as anonymous, or the name of any person entered only under initials or under a pseudonym. CHESTER W. MERRILL,

Librarian.

DIRECTIONS.

In order to find whether any desired work is in this catalogue, if the author is known, consult the Index of Authors, beginning at page 193.

In order to find what works on any given subject are in this catalogue, consult the Index of Subjects on the opposite page, and the pages of the catalogue there indicated under the subject consulted.

In order to find whether a work published anonymously is in this catalogue, consult the Index of Titles, beginning at page 216. For Proceedings and Transactions of learned societies consult the same index.

Books are entered under the real name of the author when that is known; under the pseudonym, or assumed name when it is not; and where only the initials of an author are known, the last initial is put first. Compound surnames are entered under the first part of the name. The names in parentheses printed in italics and not preceded by the word "formerly," are the pseudonyms of the authors whose real name they follow.

The numbers at the end of each title are the "call-numbers" for the book; those to which an asterisk (*) is prefixed can not be taken from the Library. All books should be called for by their numbers.
