NOTE BY THE A. L. A. PUBLISHING BOARD. 

The A. L. A. publishing hoard commends this Catalog to libraries and readers with the conviction 
that, while it may not meet every expectation or requirement, it will be found one of the most useful 
bibliograpical manuals that have been issued. The editor's pref ace gives so complete a statement of 
the purposes of the work, and of the history of the undertaking, that little remains for us to add. To 
the determined and energetic efforts of the editor and his efficient coadjutors we owe whatever of 
excellence the work may possess. The delays in the publication have been in the interest of increased 
thoroughness and completeness of work; especially has it been possible to include many more notes 
than could have been furnished if the work had been hastened. 

The board would like to add emphasis to the acknowledgments expressed in the editor's preface, 
particularly to the Library of Congress and its librarian, without whose most generous and hearty help 
the work could not have been published in a form and on terms so advantageous to the libraries and 
the people of the whole land. 

To the many examples of effective cooperation which our association has furnished this may well 

be added as among the chief.

EDITORIAL PREFACE 

At its Boston meeting in 1879 the American library association enthusiastically 
adopted the proposal of the present editor to prepare and publish a list of about 5,000 
of the best books with compact notes indicating scope, character and value, to be 
known as the A. L. A. catalog. It was pointed out that such a list would serve: 

1 As a guide to bookbuyers whether for private or public libraries. It is not 
uncommon for a library to pay some single individual hundreds of dollars for making 
a list representing merely his individual choice of books, not only on subjects with 
which he is familiar, but also on the much larger number of which he knows practi- 
cally nothing. A copy of this Catalog would be much more valuable, would be in 
print instead of ins, and several duplicates could be checked up at trifling cost for 
getting estimates or other purposes. 

■2 As a guide to readers in choosing what books they might best take from the 
library or from their own shelves. 

3 As a manual to teach the }'Ounger and prompt the older librarians or book- 
sellers in answering most wisely the constant inquiry for the best book on a given 
subject. 

4 To take the place of the printed catalog in small public libraries. The call 
number of all books in the library could be written in the margin, thus showing at 
once that the library had the book and where it could be found, while unmarked 
titles would be the best list for early purchase. 

5 As a most convenient catalog for private libraries, by checking in the margin 
all books owned. 

6 As a check list of books read, personal notes*being added in margins. 
Liberal subscriptions were made for copies and much material was collected when 

work was interrupted b}^ the editor's absorption in other duties. After various 
proposals for resuming work, the joint cooperation and finance committees, who had 
been given full power in the premises in 1884, turned the entire matter over to Melvil 
Dewe3 r as editor, on condition that no financial responsibility should rest on the asso- 
ciation. Owing to lack of means little more was done till the World's Columbian 
exposition gave opportunity to get out an imperfect first edition without note-. As 
the notes were to be the chief feature of the A. L. A. catalog, the 1893 book was called 
Catalog of A. L. A. library, reserving the other name for a list including the all 
important notes as guides to readers. By the testimony of the U. S. commissioner 
of education, who published several large editions, it was of even greater service 
than anticipated. The books were selected by a committee of leading members of 
the A. L. A. of which J. N. Lamed was chairman, and the cataloging was done in 
the New York state library under Mrs S. (J. Fairchild's supervision, the V. S. bureau 
of education paying the salaries for much of the office work, as the library was to be

its permanent property at the end of the Columbian exposition of 1893, where the 
A. L. A. library was exhibited and attracted great attention. The list has been used 
by thousands of libraries and private buyers as a guide in selection. 

In 1894 ;i committee was appointed, with Mrs Fairchild as chairman, to 
prepare needed supplements. Progress was delayed by many difficulties, and just 
as the section on education was to goto the printer, it was proposed that instead 
of a supplement a new work complete in itself should be prepared as the chief 
A. L. A. exhibit at the St Louis exposition. This plan was adopted. The New York 
state library had, in 1889, authorized its director as editor of the Catalog to pre- 
pare and issue it as a state library publication. Though relieved of publication of 
the 1893 volume by the cooperation of the Bureau of education, the New York state 
library continued to gather lists and notes as other duties permitted and when the 
Bureau of education found itself unable to bring out the revised edition as hoped, 
the regents of the New York state library repeated their authority to prepare and 
issue it and secured from the legislature a special appropriation covering part of the 
expenses. 

The American library association having placed in the hands of its publishing 
board its interest in the undertaking, the board welcomed the assumption by the New 
York state library of the editorial work, and supplemented the financial provision 
made by the state of New York by an appropriation of $1,200 (afterwards raised to 
$1,500) to meet the necessary expense. The board has exercised a general super- 
vision over the work and has determined questions affecting its form and general 
character. Most important, the Library of Congress agreed to share the burden by 
printing and distributing it widely as one of its publications, thus giving it a much 
larger free circulation than would have been possible for a state publication. 

General plan. The list includes 7,520 volumes specially adapted to small 
libraries and those just starting, but suitable also for any public library. Except a 
few of the most important foreign classics in the original, only such foreign works 
as are available in English translations are included. While this ( 'atalog, when 
carefully revised, will be the best within the prescribed limits of size and purpose 
that the combined wisdom of our most experienced librarians and specialists can 
produce, no editors could hope to make a selection from the vast mass of books of 
all ages and tongues wholly satisfactory even to themselves. 

Best as applied to this Catalog means relatively to the general reader. An 
accurate, interesting and comprehensive statement in untechnical language that is 
best for a general reader may be mere a b c to a specialist, while the most recent, 
exact and exhaustive treatise best for a specialist may be the worst for a general 
reader because too technical to be intelligible. Though a mediocre book has some- 
times been chosen because there is nothing better meeting the conditions, it is hoped 
that nothing untrustworthy or ephemeral has been admitted. Out of print books 
are omitted unless very important and soon to be on the market again. 

Titles have been condensed by omitting unessential words. American importer 
and price when ascertained are given rather than foreign publisher. 

Technical books. Many of the most valuable works proposed by experts have 
been omitted because outside the scope of this list, which is primarily for general 
readers and not for professional men or special students, but it includes many tech- 



EDITORIAL PREFACE 7 

nical books on industries common to most communities, e. g. engineering 1 and engi- 
neering materials, sanitation, building, etc. 

Adaptation to very small libraries. To make the Catalog as helpful as possible 
to the smallest libraries that can start with only 1,000, 2,000 or 5,000 volumes, in the 
next edition the l.ooo host to buy first will be marked 1, the 1,000 that added to 1 
will make the most useful 2,000 will be marked 2, and those that added to 1 and 2 
will make the most useful ,').ooo will be marked 5. This does not mean that books 
marked I are better than the others, but merely that the} T are considered the most 
useful combination for a library' limited to 1,000, and so likewise of 2 and 5. 

Classification. The definite purpose of this book is to guide in selecting books, 
either to read or buy; its form is chosen solely for this use regardless of what may 
be best for Libraries in their own eatalogs. For its peculiar use it must be classed 
by subjects for convenience of both reader and buyer. It was also desirable to allow 
the printing in separate pamphlets of any classes for which there should be .special 
demand. The Decimal classification was chosen because its use was much more 
general than any other and its adoption would eonvenience the largest number; 
because all material for this Catalog for 27 years has been kept in this order; and 
because the New York state library, where the editorial work was done, could not use 
any other method without much confusion and extra labor. 

In cases where several different numbers would be equally correct, that one has 
been chosen whichseemed practically best for public libraries: e. g. Plato and Aristotle 
are classed in literature rather than in philosophy or political science, where the} r would 
go if classed strictly by content instead of in view T of their larger use as classical litera- 
ture; Burton's Anatomy of melancholy is put in English miscellany instead of under its 
specific subject; children's primers and readers are classed in literature instead of in 
education, as they are chosen for their storybook value and not for their bearing on 
education. Under some heads a comparatively unimportant book appears because 
its author's works as a whole are included: e. g. under 701 Schiller's Essays sesthetical; 
under 010 Holmes' Medical essays now nearly 40 years out of date. 

Proportion by subject. The number of volumes in each main subject is given 
for the Catalog of 1893 followed by like numbers for this book. Numbers in each 
class cover also a selection of juveniles made by special students of children's 
leading.

8 A. L. A. CATALOG 

A. L. A. library. The United States bureau of education has the complete 
collection included in the 1893 catalog as exhibited at the Chicago exposition. 
Frederick M. Crunden, librarian of St Louis public library, vice chairman of the 
committee on library exhibit at the Louisiana Purchase exposition, has collected this 
library of 1904 as an exhibit of a model town library in the Missouri state building. 
This will probably be retained by the St Louis public library after the exposition 
doses. The Library of Congress has also bought every book in the list not already 
in its collection, and the New York state library always buys any books it may lack 
to make its A. L. A. catalog complete. These libraries can be kept up to date by 
adding or withdrawing books as fast as changes are made. It is expected that many 
public libraries will start by buying the entire list. 

Selection. The following circulars sent by the editor to critics will show the 
exact plan on which the work was done and make clear what the collaborators aimed 
to do. 

SUGGESTIONS FOR MARKING LISTS 

15 November 1902 

Tentative lists. The basis for selection in each subject will be the A. L. A. catalog of 1893 sup- 
plemented by lists of later publications. As presumption will be in favor of books already in the Cat- 
alog, the main task of selection will lie in the supplementary lists, which are intended to contain all 
books since 1893 with any claim to consideration. Please feel, however, as much freedom in adding 
as in striking out titles; for in spite of the care taken in making up the lists, some appropriate works 
may have been overlooked. 

Marking scheme. If critics will use the following scheme in marking lists, it will secure uni- 
formity that will greatly lighten the labor of combining returns for the revised list on which a second 
criticism will be asked before publication. 

PLEASE ITT SYMBOL IX LEFT MARGIN BEFORE TITLE

Please note at least briefly the reason for which you reject or incline to reject a book; e. g. out of 
date (o d), too technical (tt), inaccurate (i), too little demand (d), vicious (v) The abbreviations 
given in ( ) may be used instead of writing words in full. 

Rejection. From the lists an- to he discarded: 

1 Books out of print, unless still readily obtainable and not replaced by something better, e. g. 
here is nothing to take the place of the I - . S. report of 1876 on public libraries, and it is easily gotten 

of secondhand dealers; 

2 Hooks superseded by others giving newer information or theories, e. g. those on countries where 
conditions have changed like the West Indies or Philippines, or on rapidly growing sciences and 
industries like chemistry and electricity; 

:'. Editions superseded by those distinctly belter lor public libraries, but specify preferred edition; 

I books that forother reasons you believe can be more advantageously replaced by others, noting 
in each case why you discard; 

5 Hooks that you think have no claim to a place in so limited a list of this character. 

Notes. Either formulated notes, rough notes or comments as a basis for notes, original or quoted, 
whether giving your own estimate or facts useful to a reader trying to choose between different books,

are specially requested, as they will be the most helpful feature of the Catalog. As many titles will he 
annotated as practicable in the short time available for this edition and the annotation completed in a 
later edition. References to good notes already in print, with criticism of either matter or manner, 
would he much appreciated. 

Among important items for notes are point of view; trustworthiness; scope; characteristics of 
style (didactic, colloquial, interesting, witty, dry, involved or difficult to follow, etc.); scene; period; 
class of readers to which adapted. 

Edition. If you would retain a hook but substitute a different edition, cancel description of 
edition given and specify preferred edition. 

Suggested method. Labor on the lists will probably be minimized by marking first the -| — |- 
and =; i. e. the two extremes of books positively rejected or included. A rough count of those 
included then quickly shows whether they must be weeded out to come within the allowance to that 
subject for 8,000 volumes or whether more may be added. 

The labor asked of those who kindly assist in this work will be made as light as possible by fur- 
nishing lists ready for quick checking with the symbols above, which with a minimum of work will 
indicate the critics' judgment and preference. 

FINAL REVISION OF LISTS 

15 January 1904 

The lists submitted for final expression of opinion are made up by the associate editor for selection, 
Mrs EL L. Elmendorf, special bibliographer of the Buffalo public library, after comparison of votes 
of specialists and advisory board, often supplemented by reference to reviews or examination of the 
books themselves. 

The estimated quota, or proportion, for each class has been filled in the printed galleys. If you 
wish to add books, either from the typewritten lists or as new suggestions, please indicate, if possible, 
what books you would take out in return for those that you would put in. 

As this Catalog is not a bibliography of the best books from a scholar's point of view, but a list of 
books most practically useful to a small public library, those out of print are omitted unless still 
readily obtainable. 

Classification. Please do not discard a book suitable for this Catalog merely because found under 
a head where it does not belong, but say why it should be classed elsewhere. Classification of all 
hooks retained will be carefully revised. 

Notes. Comments of two distinct kinds are asked: those helpful to editors in finally deciding 
what hooks to include; those helpful to readers in choosing what books to read. Please add informa- 
tion that you consider important, specially on the following points: preferred editions, with character- 
istics of more expensive or cheaper editions that should be mentioned in notes; details of type or 
printing making a hook unusually agreeable or tiresome to the eyes; whether reprint from periodicals: 
index, whether good, bad, or lacking; point of view — whig, socialist, catholic, etc.; scope and purpose; 
its rank in literature of the subject; marked characteristics of style; scene; period; class of readers to 
which adapted. 

As the time is very short for the work still "to be done, please return your criticisms by earliest 
possible mail. We greatly wish your final opinion, but can not delay work for belated returns. 

Notes for future editions. Immediately on publication revision will begin for 
the next edition, specially in adding desirable notes. An extra copy for marking by 
the system adopted will be sent to am T one willing to give the editors the benefit of 
his criticisms. All suggestions made will be so arranged as to insure consideration 
when the next edition is printed. No one can do a greater service to this Catalog 
than those who point out its faults, except those who show definitely how to improve 
it. No one can be more keenly alive to its imperfections than those who know it 
best, its makers. 



10 A. L. A. CATALOG 

Acknowledgments. For 2f> years the present editor has persisted in his faith 
that this Catalog would some time appear because it was the most important and 
valuable single book that could be made to aid in the great public library movement. 
Jt is fitting to record here acknowledgments to those who have made it possible. 

1 To the New York state library, which for 15 years has kept this Catalog 
steadily in view, has borne the heaviest burdens of preparation, and proposes with 
such cooperation as it can get to continue the work and make each succeeding edition 
better. This library selected the original lists, digested all returns, wrote all 
circulars and conducted all correspondence, classed the books by the Decimal 
classification, furnished the majority of the notes and edited all of them, made the 
index and edited copy for the class list. 

Special acknowledgment is due to Walter Stanley Biscoe and Miss Martha T. 
Wheeler, whose practical experience in book selection and annotation and biblio- 
graphic knowledge have made their unflagging cooperation invaluable; and to Miss 
Elva L. Bascom, who took immediate charge of routine and clerical detail, condensed 
hundreds of notes from reviews (many of them among the best in the Catalog), edited 
much of the copy, and gave practical advice in formulating plans. That there are 
not more errors is largely due to her unceasing vigilance. 

2 To the Library of Congress for generous cooperation far be} 7 ond its original 
promises. Besides bearing the whole cost of printing and distributing this volume, 
it printed and mailed preliminary and revised lists, and has made and published card 
and dictionary catalogs of the whole collection. 

The Library of Congress staff throughout the work has cooperated most warmly 
to secure improvements both in substance and form, and to correct mistakes both in 
and out of their definite province. The editors and public are under deep obligation 
for the generous cooperation and warm personal interest constantly shown in this 
work by the Librarian of Congress and his staff. 

3 To Mr W. P. Cutter, librarian, Forbes library, Northampton, Mass., for 
furnishing expansive classification numbers for the entire collection and for the 
synopsis of the Expansive Classification which precedes the dictionary catalog. 
These numbers appear both in the dictionary catalog and on the printed cards of 
the Library of Congress. 

-t To the A. L. A. publishing board for its appropriation of $1,500 towards 
expenses, for its warm interest in the work, and for authorizing the issue under its 
auspices, thus recognizing more fully in fact that it represents the cooperation of 
nearly 300 librarians and specialists, and so is not alone from the New York state 
library and Library of Congress, but, as its original name suggests, represents the 
A. L. A. 

.J To the 250 collaborators and critics carefully selected from the entire country 
as best able to advise in their respective fields, who have given without compensation 
more thought and labor and have contributed more suggestions and notes than could 
be reasonably expected from men whose days are crowded with important duties. 

The makers of the Catalog are under greatest obligation to Prof, flames I lardy 
Ropes, of Harvard, whose generous offer to substitute a Carefully balanced list on 
religion for the rough original list was cordially accepted. His list was made the 
working basis for further criticism, though the resulting list, as was inevitable, varies 
greatly from his selection. 



EDITORIAL PREFACE 11 

ti To Mrs II. L. Elmendorf, to whose rare 1 qualifications for this work much of 
its merit is due. As librarian of the Milwaukee public library and later as special 
bibliographer of the Buffalo public library she has given so much attention to the 
needs of the average public library that she seemed best qualified for this important 
position, which she has so acceptably tilled. Her choice of the 7,520 volumes was 
made from a list of three times that number containing much conflicting - opinion. 
Besides deciding on the books to be included she also gave most valuable aid in 
furnishing notes and in choosing and revising others from the vast mass of those 
under consideration. 

No man or committee could possibly make such a selection without leaving 
grounds for criticism from various points of view. In many cases several recognized 
authorities insisted that a certain book should be added or omitted, while others 
equally good insisted on just the reverse. The selection editor had all the reasons 
from both sides before her, in addition to a lifelong and intimate knowledge of 
public library needs far beyond most of the critics. With rare skill, industry and 
patience she has made the list after full consideration of pros and cons. In the 
judgment of those wdio know most about this catalog and the people for whom 
it is intended, no one else would have done this work better. 

7 To Miss May Seymour, associate editor, to whom the entire executive work 
was committed. In both 1003 and 1904 she has given not onby every working hour 
that could be taken from other duties but has added evenings, holidays and vacations. 
After plans were completed the editor left their execution to her, and in 30 years' 
experience he has never been better satisfied with the performance of delegated duties. 
Besides her executive duties, she has been constantly and most efficiently active in 
every department, and her rare skill and devotion to this work have added much to 
its practical value. To no other person are so great acknowledgments due.

THE DECIMAL CLASSIFICATION 

EXPLANATION 

Tlu' arrangement chosen for the class list of this catalog, as meeting the convenience of the largest 
number of users, is the Decimal classification. By this system the field of knowledge is divided into 9 
main classes and these are numbered by the digits, 1 to 9. Cyclopedias, periodicals, etc. so general 
in character a* to belong to no one of these classes are marked nought, and form a tenth class: Each 
is similarly separated into 9 divisions, general works belonging to no division having nought in 
place of the division number. Divisions are similarly divided into 9 sections and the process is 
•epeated as often as necessary. Thus 512 means Class 5 (Natural Science), Division 1 (Mathematics), 
oection 2 (Algebra), and every Algebra is numbered 512. 

Subjects are arranged in simple numeric order, all class numbers being decimals. Thus 512 
Algebra precedes 513 Geometry and follows 511 Arithmetic. 

Summaries. The first summary shows the 10 Classes into which all topics are divided. The 
second summary shows the 9 Divisions of each of the 10 Classes, and is useful as a birdseye view of 
the whole scheme on a single page. Then follow 10 pages, one for each class, showing the 9 Sections 
into which each of the 9 divisions of each class is divided. 

Index. In the index, subjects are arranged in one simple alphabet, with the class number of 
each referring to its exact place in the preceding class list. This index includes also synonyms or 
alternative names for topics and other entries likely to help a reader find readily the subject sought.

Q.OO RELIGION 



The aim has been to make such a selection of 
religious books as will, for the most part, be 
eagerly used by almost any American commu- 
nity; but not to make even a small representa- 
tive theological library. It will m>t satisfy any 
specialist. It will not satisfy any institution or 
community bavins: a dominant religious bent. 
Local conditions should, probably, under such 
circumstances modify the selection. Avowedly 
controversial books are intentionally omitted.

Huxley's essays are among our very best specimens of 
one variety of literature. Few controversialists ever hit 
so hard or so straight and avoided so rigidly the tempta- 
tion to stray into irrelevant issues. Huxley's style has in 
the highest degree the merit due to never thinking of the 
styleatall, butsimplyof theclearest utterance of thought.

Carleton, "William. Traits and stories of the

4v. 1896. 20cm Macmillan $6 

Intimate and sympathetic presentation of the life of the 
peasants, their quick temper and variable nature, now 
moody, now gay, capable of the deepest feeling, of fiercely 
vindictive passions and crimes. These stories record the 
author's actual experiences; their realism is almost over- 
faithful in detail, yet by no means free from caricature.

Wonderland; illus. by John Tenniel. 1904. 
19cm Macmillan $1 

Y Through the looking-glass; and what Alice found there 
[sequel] 1871. 

A new genre of fairy tale which draws on modern science 
and all sorts of modern ideas for its materials, and finds 
its most characteristic expression in droll irrelevance and 
the fantastic distortion of familiar things. Though 
written for children, the wit, the fanciful humor, and the 
subtlety of many of its comic undermeanings, can be 
appreciated fully only by educated adults. Baker.
