I. A titular descriptive List of the Books in the Library, arranged alphabetically, under the names of the Authors, followed by bibliographical and other notes detailing their scope and the date of original publication, etc. To save tedious repetitions, a few abbreviations have been adopted in this division. Where a work contains a List of the Illustrations with which it is embellished, that fact is noted after the statement of the size of the work; and the place in the book where the List is given is indicated thus: “a. C.," "after the Contents," “b. c.," " before the Contents,” or “a. t.," " after the Title-page.”

II. A List of the short titles of the books arranged under " subjects'' so as to show what books on each division of bibliography,—" Archi“tecture”-“Extra Illustrated Works"_" History"—and so forth,are included in the Library.

III. A General Index so arranged that a Reader may readily ascertain what works or portions of works relate to any particular matter : thus, under the heading “Dante” or “Carlyle,” for instance, will be found not only references to the works of those Authors, but also to such Essays, Articles, and other particulars in relation to them or their writings as are included in the volumes in the Library.
