Very scarce. It will be seen that the work is divided into two parts: Part I. Synthetical : A., Catalogue of the Systematic Works; B., Catalogue of the Periodical Publications, -wherein these works are arranged in alphabetical order, according to their author or title, and without reference to subjects; and Part II., Analytical; wherein the Systematic Works and Periodical Publications are classified with reference to subjects. Part I. B. wall be found to include a copious Index, in which have been inserted many abbreviated titles, under which some of the more prominent periodicals are at times quoted. Part II. will be found to include a copious Index, the typographical arrangement of which will indicate clearly whether the reference be to a general heading, a sub-heading, or otherwise. This characteristic applies also, and in a larger degree, to the Index in Part I., B. -Preface
