EXPLANATION.

The following list contains a condensed but complete catalogue of all the new books added to the Free Library of the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of the City of New York from January to December, 1896.

The arrangement of the divisions and sub-divisions is strictly alphabetical, but for convenience of instant reference an alphabetical index of subjects is prefixed, which will direct the reader to the exact page where any topic may be found.

Books are generally entered in alphabetical order in each section under what is presumed to be the author's real name (printed in SMALL CAPS.), except where the assumed name is better known and more likely to be looked for by the majority of the users of a catalogue. In some cases the assumed name follows the real name (in parentheses). When the assumed name is taken as a heading the real name, when known, follows (in brackets). When a work has no author the first word of the title (not an article nor a preposition) is taken as a heading. In Individual Biography (page 1) books are entered in the alphabetical order of the lives treated of, instead of by authors' names, so that all the lives of the same individual will be found in one place.

In making out orders from this catalogue the reader should give the author's name, the first part of the title, the number, and the volume wanted (if there is more than one). The number always consists of a class letter, followed by not more than four figures, and sometimes by a title-letter (in italics). All the various parts of a number must be copied, as each part is equally important.

The numbering scheme is so arranged as to indicate the size of the book. Thus, if the last three figures are below 500 the work is a 12°; between 500 and 800 indicates an 8° ; from 800 to 900 is used for 4°s; and 900 to 999 is reserved for folios.

If a work is bound with or forms part of another, this fact must be stated on the order list.

A single dash indicates the absence of a preceding heading; a second dash shows the absence of a subsequent heading.

ABBREVIATIONS: “v.” means volume or volumes ; “transl.” means translated or translator ; "ed." means edition or edited ; edr." means editor ; “N. S.” means new series; “O. S.” means old series ; “Rev." means revised ; and “pt.” means part.

A t preceding a title means that the book is for reference only, and cannot be taken from the library.

A i preceding a title means that the book is the J. Morgan Slade (Reference] Library of architectural works. A complete list of this library, including a list of all the books on architecture and building in the circulating as well as in the reference department, has been published, and can be obtained for 10 cents a copy.
