DIRECTOR'S NOTE This list provides books to the amount of $500, assuming that an average discount of one third will be secured, except in case of a few books marked net and specially allowed for. Wherever there is opportunity for choice, editions have been carefully selected. Considerations of economy have debarred mention of many excellent editions, but have not induced the recommendation of poor print, paper or editing. An occasional note gives information about more expensive editions or fuller treatises which would be desirable could they be afforded, but which can not be substituted without exceeding the $500 limit or excluding something else. Where alternatives are suggested in the main list, as in case of cyclopedias, translations of Homer, etc. provision has been made for buying the more expensive work, but not both. When more than one edition is mentioned, the first is the one reckoned. Amounts in headings represent list prices and do not include alternatives.
Certain series of miscellaneous standard literature, which appear frequently on the list and are sometimes brought into comparison, perhaps need brief description. The volumes of the Riverside literature series (Houghton) are 12mos printed in clear, medium size type on good opaque paper and bound in brown linen. They are also bound in paper and boards, but only the cloth binding is quoted on this list. The Riverside school library (Houghton) volumes are generally printed from the same plates as the Riverside literature series, on somewhat finer paper and bound in red half leather. The World's classics (Putnam) are less expensive reissues of the well known Knickerbocker nuggets. The type, though not large, is clear, the page well spaced, and the paper good. They are neatly bound small 16mos. The Elia series (Putnam) are larger 16mos, admirable in type and paper, with gilt top and rough edges. These series, with Longmans' English classics, Sibley & Ducker's Students series of English classics, Macmillan's School editions, and others of recognized value, may be depended on as evenly good. To know one is to be assured of the quality of all. Unfortunately this is not always true of special editions and series, the uniformity sometimes consisting only in binding and price. Of the Stratford edition of Irving certain volumes are good while others are poor. Crowell's Waldorf library, uncommonly satisfactory for the price in many instances, is very unequal and sometimes decidedly inferior. It has been recommended in this list only after examination of the individual volume.
Books marked a aggregate $200. If to these the books marked bare added, the amount will reach $300. This selection merely suggests probable first needs in case it is impracticable to buy all on the list, but it does not imply that these books are superior in quality. It is of course impossible to make a limited list which shall perfectly meet diverse conditions and needs. A German dictionary or an advanced chemistry may be almost useless in one school and absolutely necessary in another. Variations must be made to suit requirements of special courses and interests of the community. The resources of a school must also be considered. It is hoped that these briefer selections will meet average requirements fairly well and that the full list will furnish suggestions for special wants.
