Bulletin 63 June 1901



PREFACE This list aims to show the resources of both New York state and Bowdoin college libraries in Maine local history, excluding education, geology, Indians, special manufactures, family genealogy, individual biography, and similar allied topics; but including manuals of churches and lodges of freemasons when containing lists of members covering several years.

Several general works are grouped at the beginning for ready reference. Works with distinct chapters on localities and historical periodicals have been analyzed. Bangor historical magazine is entered in full under Bangor but analyzed for other localities, and Old times in North Yarmouth is entered under each of the half dozen closely related towns concerned but not analyzed for single authors. Articles in general magazines are also included, Williamson's Bibliography of Maine having been used for those before 1890, As a rule notes and queries of less than a page have not been indexed.

The arrangement is the same as that of bibliography 23 in this series, C: A. Flagg's Connecticut local history, after which this list is modeled: counties according to the Decimal classification and under them their towns in alphabetic order. Dates of incorporation and the many changes in territory of towns and counties are given so fully and conveniently in Maine register that these items are omitted from the headings of this list.

Acknowledgment of suggestions and aid is specially due to the librarian of Bowdoin college and to the senior librarian of New York state.

Works analysed

[ocr errors]

Volume and page numbers are separated by a colon : e. g. 3:145 means v. 3, p. 145. Call numbers for both libraries are given, those for New York state in black face type.

A class number, if without book number or other abbreviation indicates a work in the New York traveling libraries; if followed by pam, an unbound pamphlet. A few works not regularly catalogued are marked N. Y. and, Bowdoin.
