Three scalesare used, 1:02,500, 1 : 125.00;), and 1:250,000. These correspond, approx- 
imately, to 1 mile, 2 miles, and 4 miles to 1 linear inch on the map. The size, 
unless otherwise given, is about 17i inches in height liy IH to 16 inches in width, 
exclusive of the margin, the width'varying with tlie latitude. About one-fifth of 
the area of the country, excluding Alaska, has been majiped, nearly every State 
being represented. Massachusetts. Connecticut, Rhode Island. New Jersey, and 
the District of Columbia are completely mapped. A description of the' topo- 
graphic map is printed on the reverse of each sheet catalogued below, and they are

Topographic sheets 

Note. — The Geological Survey is making a topographic map of the United 
States. The sheets of which it is composed are projected without reference to 
political divisions, and are designated by some prominent feature found on them. 
Three scales are used, 1 : 62.500, 1 : 125,000. and 1 : 250,000. These correspond, approx- 
imately, to 1 mile, 2 miles, and 4 miles to 1 linear inch on the map. The size, 
unless otherwise given, is about 17i inches in height by llj to IG inches in width, 
exclusive of the margin, the width varying with the latitude. A description of 
the topographic map is printed on the reverse of each sheet catalogued below. 

About one-fifth ot the area of the country, excluding Alaska, has been mapped, 
nearlyevery .State being represented. Massachusetts, Connecticut, lihode Island, 
New Jersey, and the District of Columbia are completely mapped. The sheets are 
sold by the Survey at 5c. each ; but in lots of 100 or more copies, whether of the 
same sheet or of difl'erent sheets, the price is 2c. each.

Topographic sheets 

Note. — The Geological Survey is making a topographic map of the United 
States. The sheets of which it is composed are jirojected without reference to 
political divisions, and are designated by some prominent feature found on them. 
Three scales are used. 1 : 62,500, 1 : 125,000,'and 1 : 250,000. Thesecorrespond, approx- 
imately, to 1 mile. 2 miles, and 4 miles to 1 linear inch on the map. The size, 
unless" otherwise given, is about 17i inches in height b\ Hi to 16 inches in width, 
exclusive of the margin, the width varying with the latitude. A description of the 
topographic map is printed on the reverse of each sheet catalogued below. 

About one-fifth of the area of the country, excluding Alaska, has been mapped, 
nearly every State being represented. Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, 
New Jersey, and the District of Columbia are completely mapped. The sheets 
are sold by the Survey at 5c. each ; but in lots of 100 or more copies, whether of the 
Bame sheet or of diti'erent sheets, the price is 2c. each.

Topographic sheets 

Note. — The Geological Survey is making a topographic map of the United 
States. The sheets of which it is composed are projected without reference to 
political divisions, and are designated by some prominent feature found on them. 
Three scales are used, 1:62,500, 1: 125,000, andl: 250,000. These correspond, approx- 
imately, to 1 mile, 2 miles, and 4 miles to 1 linear inch on the map. The size, 
unles.s otherwise given, is about 17J inches in height by IH to 16 inches in width, 
exclusive of the maigin, the width varying with the latitude. A description of 
the topographic map is printed on the reverse of each sheet catalogued below. 

About one-fifth of the area of the country, excluding Alaska, has been majiped,

General Note 



AUTHORITY FOR PUBLISHING THE CATALOGUE 

This Monthly Catalogue is issued in accordance with the provisions 
of section 69 of the Act providing for the public printing and binding 
and the distribution of public documents, approved January 12, 1895, 
which is as follows : 

"Sec. 69. A catalogue of Government publications shall be prepared 
by the Superintendent of Documents on the lirst day of each montb, 
which shall show the documents printed during the preceding month, 
where obtainable, and the price thereof. Two thousand copies of such 
catalogue shall be printed in pamphlet form for distribution." 

There is no direction as to who shall make the distribution, nor to 
whom it shall be made. Thus far the Superintendent of Documents has 
exercised his own discretion in the premises. In pursuance of this dis- 
cretion copies of each issue have been sent to Senators, Representatives, 
and Delegates in Congress, to the designated depository libraries, to 
those Government Departments, bureaus, and offices which issue public 
documents, to the officers of the Engineer Corps, U. S. A. (by request of 
the Chief of the Corps), and, finally, to those citizens who have asked 
for them. No arbitrary list of names of people who have expressed no 
interest in public documents has been made up. Only those unofficial 
citizens who were known to want the Catalogue have been supplied 
with it. By pursuing this course the small edition has thus far been 
saved from entire exhaustion, and it is still i)ossible, in special cases, to 
supply all the numbers except the first. It will, however, soon be found 
necessary to increase the number printed or to adopt some more restrict- 
ive rule than that of "first come, fiist served," which has thus far been 
followed. Requests for the regular receipt of the Catalogue have been 
received from every part of this country and from several foreign coun- 
tries, and additional requests are continually received. 

SALES BY THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS 

Section 61 of the Act hereinbefore quoted provides as follows: 
"The Superintendent of Documents is hereby authorized to sell at cost 
any public document in his charge, the distribution of which is not 
herein specifically directed, said cost to be estim.nted by tlie Public 
Printer and based upon printing from stereotyped plates; but only one 
copy of any document shall be sold to the same person, excepting 
libraries or schools by which additional copies are desired for separate 
departments thereof, and Members of Congress; and whenever any 
officer of the Government having in his charge documents published 
for sale shall desire to be relieved of the same, he is hereby authorized 
to turn them over to the Superintendent of Documents, who shall 
receiv^e and sell them under the provisions of this section." 

In accordance with the foregoing provisions, prices are fixed on the 
documents named in the Catalogue. In those cases where publications 
are oft'ered for sale by the Departments issuing them, and price lists 
have been issued, those prices have been adopted here. In other cases 
the prices have lieen computed on the basis fixed in the law as above 
quoted. Except as otherwise stated in the body of the Catalogue, these 
computed prices call for paper or cloth covers, and a corresponding 
increase will be made for books bound in leather or half leather. The 



4 June, 1897 

cost of paper covers is about Ic. per volume; of cloth cases, from 10c. 
to 50c. per volume; of full sheep binding, from 75c. to $1.15 per volume 
for octavos and $1.50 for quartos; of half russia or half turkey, $1.00 
per volume. 

WHERE DOCUMENTS ARE OBTAINABLE 

It is the apparent intention of the new printing law (approved Jan- 
uary 12, 1895) that the sales of public documents shall ultimately be 
concentrated mainly if not wholly in the office of the Superintendent 
of Documents. The provisions that 500 copies of each of the various 
departmental puldications of every kind, as well as of the numbered 
Congressional documents, shall be sent to him (sec. 58); that all the 
accumulated documents in the Departments not needed lor official use 
be sent to him now and annually (sec. 67) ; that any public officer hav- 
ing documents for sale may turn them over to him (sec. 61) ; — all point 
to such an intention. But thus far the law has been only partially 
operative. No officer except the Public Printer has sufficiently desired 
to be relieved of the sale of books to induce him to turn them over to 
this office. The collection of the accumulations from the Departments 
is not yet completed. The decision that 500 additional departmental 
publications shall be printed for this office has not been made to cover 
all such publications. Consequently many of the current documents 
noted in the Monthly Catalogue can not be supplied, while of the older 
documents, of which many thousands are liere on sale, no catalogue can 
be furnishell. Thus the selling function of the office of the Superin- 
tendent of Documents is comparatively undeveloped. But its develop- 
ment is progressing steadily, if not rapidly. 

The arrangements for disposing of public documents which existed 
before the passage of the new law are still in operation. They are 
extremely varied, and before the advent of the Monthly Catalogue no 
attempt had been made to collect them and publish a comprehensive 
statement for the benetit of general buyers. It is believed that the fol- 
lowing statement describes most of their important features. It is 
made, however, subject to correction as further information may be 
received. 

COXGRKSSIOXAI. RECORD 

The Congressional Record, containing the proceedings and debates of 
Congress, is issued daily when Congress is in session, and indexes thereto 
are published semimonthly It is sold by the Public Printer on the fol- 
lowing terms: Single copj*, 3c. if not more than 24 pp., and Ic. more for 
each additional 8 pp. ; per month, $1.50; pershort session, $4.00; per long 
session, $8.00. Subscriptions are payable in advance. 

COURT REPORTS 

TheA'olumes of Decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States, 
perhaps the most important of all public documents, have never been 
published by the Government. They are published by the official 
reporter of the Court, through a private publishing house. There is 
a statutory provision that a number of copies, amounting to 300 in 
all, shall be furnished to various Departments of the Government free 
of cost, and that the price to the public shall not exceed $2.00 per 
volume. The cases in suits in which the Cnited States are not plaintiff 
in error or appellant are also printed by contract at a ]irivate printing 
house. Those documents of the Supreme Court which are printed at the 
Government Printing Office are but a small part of the whole. They are 
printed in very limited editions for the use of the Court and attorneys, 
and no provision is made for their distribution or sale. By far the greater 
part of the publications used in the proceedings of the Court are printed 
by private litigants at their own cost. Ocrasionally. when a litigant 
pleads poverty, the Court makes an order that his printing shall be done 
at the Government Printing Office at public expense. 



June, 1897 5 

The documents of the Court of Claims are printed at the Government 
Printing Office, but only for the use of the Court, and in very limited 
editions. They are not accessible to the public except by consent of the 
attorneys in interest. The Court makes an annual report to Congress, 
which is a public document, and its findings are ]iri;ite<l in annual vol- 
umes, of which only a limited edition, for official use. is issued by the 
Court. Private ]uiblishers, however, may, and usually do. order from 
the Public Printer separate editions, which they offer for sale. 

C0N(iRESS10XAL QUOTAS 

Senators and Representatives in Congress have allotments, often very 
limited in number, of nearly all the more important Government publi- 
cations, which are distributed on their order from the Senate and House 
folding and document rooms. 

STATE DEPARTMENT 

The State Department distributes the Consular Reports and other 
departmental publications gratuitously, but sells the Revised Statutes, 
Statutes at Large, and pamphlet laws. Address Disbursing Clerk. State 
Department. If drafts are sent, make them payable to his order. 

Tlie American Republics Bureau sells its own monthly Viulletins, 
handbooks, etc., at prices usually ranging from 5c. to 60c. Address the 
Director of the Bureau. 

TREASURY DEPARTMENT 

The Charts, Coast Pilots, and Tide Tables of the Coast and Geodetic 
Survey are sold at the office of the Survey, in Washington, and also by 
one or more sales agents iu each of the important American seaports. 
The monthly Notice to Mariners may be had free at these agencies, at 
all I'nited States custom-houses, at the branch hydrographic offices of 
the Navy Department, and at the office of the Coast Survey. 

Public Health Reports, issued weekly, showing health conditions in 
various parts of this and other countries, as reported by the officers of the 
Marine Hospital Service and others, is for gratuitous distribution, but 
the edition is limited, and the document is intended only for health 
officers and other persons interested in sanitary affairs. To obtain it 
application should be made to the Supervising Surgeon-General of the 
>Iarine Hospital Service, Treasury Department. 

The weekly Catalogue of Copyrights, prepared by the Librarian of 
Congress, is published by the Treasury Department, but is not sold by 
that Department, nor by the Librarian. Those desiring it must sub- 
scribe at the office of the collector of customs for the district in which 
they live. The price is $5.00 per year. 

WAR DEP.ARTMENT 

The volumes of the Records of the War of the Rebellion are sold at 
3.5c. to 90c. per part. The atlas is furnished unbound for $14. .50, and the 
platescomposingit are sold separately at 10c. each. Address Maj. George 
W. Davis, War Records Office, War Department. 

NAVY DEPARTMENT 

The Navy Department will sell the surplus copies of the Official 
Records of the Union and Confederate Navies after the distribution 
ordered by law has been made. No copies are now available from this 
source. The officer in immediate charge of the publication, to whom 
inquiries may be addressed, is the Superintendent of Naval War Records, 
Navy Department. 

The charts, Sailing Directions, etc., of the Hydrographic Office are 
sold by the Office in Washington, and also by agents at the principal 



6 June, 1897 

American and foreign seaports and American lake ports. Copies of the 
Notice to Mariners, Hydrographic Bulletin, and Notic<' to Mariners for 
the Great Lakes are supplied free on application at the Hydrographic 
Office in Washington and at the hranch offices in Boston, New York, 
Philadelphia, Baltimore, Norfolk, Savannah, New Orleans, San Fran- 
cisco, Portland (Oreg. ), PortTownsend, Buffalo, Chicago, and Cleveland. 
The same offices also supply the Light List and the Beacon and Buoy 
List issued by the Light-House Board. 

The Notice to Mariners contains information of newly discovered 
dangers to navigation and of establishment and changes of lights and 
other aids. For economy and convenience in distribution, the items in 
each number relating to diflereut geographical sections are reprinted 
sep'arately, as Notice to Mariners 19, sec. 1, etc. The information relat- 
ing to the Great Lakes appears only in the Notice to Mariners for the 
Great Lakes, issued monthly except .January and February. 

It should 1)6 noted that tliere are four kinds of Notices to Mariners — 
one issued at frequent but irregular intervals by the Light-House Board 
(Treasury Department); one issued monthly by the Coast Survey 
(Treasury Department) ; and two by the Hydrographic Office (Navy 
Department), one of these last being weekly for the ocean and the other 
monthly for the Great Lakes. 

The American Ephemeris and Nautical Almanac, the Nautical Almanac 
extracted from this publication, and other astronomical publications of 
the Nautical Almanac Office, are sold by the Director of the Nautical 
Almanac, U. S. Naval Observatory, Washington, D. C, and by agents of 
that office in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, New Orleans, Portland 
(Oreg.), Baltimore, San Francisco, Washington, and Port Townsend. 
The price of the Ephemeris is $1.00, and it is issued three years in 
advance. The Nautical Almanac is sold for half this price by the agents. 

POST-OFFICE DEPARTMEXT 

ThePost-Office Department sells the volume of Postal Laws and Regu- 
lations at 42c. 

The post-route maps of the different States and Territories, showing 
post-offices, with intermediate distances and mail routes in operation,

ranging from $1.05 to $1.45 per volume. Subscribers may deposit $1.00, 
and receive the contents of a volume of the Decisions in separate parts 
as they appear. Of the Land Decisions usually two volumes are issued 
yearly, while the Pension-Decision volumes appear at longer intervals, 
sometimes more than two years apart. 

Orders for the publications of the Tenth and Eleventh Censuses (1880 
and 1890) should be sent to the Chief Clerk of the Interior Department, 
indorsed "Document Division." 

The various bureaus of the Interior Department have extensive and 
important lists of publications, which may be ordered from the Depart- 
ment or directly from the bureaus. These include the issues of the 
Pension, Patent, and Laud offices, the Geological Survey, and the Edu- 
cation Bureau. 



June, 1897 7 

The publications of the United States Geological Survey include annual 
reports and Water-Supply and Irrigation Papers, which are intended for 
free distribution ; and Monographs, Bulletins, and folios of the Geologic 
Atlas of the United States, which are sold at prices ranging from 5c. to 
$11.00 each. 

The Geological Survey is making a topographic map of the United 
States. The sheets of which it is composed are projected without refer- 
ence to political divisions, and are designated by some prominent fea- 
ture found on them. Three scales are used. 1 : 62,.500, 1 : 12;"), 000, and 
1: 250,000. These correspond, approximately, to 1 mile, 2 miles, and 4 
miles to 1 linear inch on the map. The size, unless otherwise given, is 
about n^ inches in height by 11^ to 16 inches in width, exclusive of the 
margin, the width varying with the latitude. A description of the topo- 
graphic map is printed on the reverse of each sheet. About one-tifth of 
the area of the country, excluding Alaska, has been mapped, nearly every 
State being represented. Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, 
New Jersey, and the District of Columl)ia are completely mapped. Sheets 
of the regular size are sold by the Survey at5<-. each; but in lots of 100 
or more copies, whether of the same sheet or of ditferent sheets, the price 
is 2c. each. Address the Director of the Geological Survey, Washington. 

The Patent Office publishes specifications and drawings of patents, 
both in single copies and monthly volumes, the former at 5c. and the 
latter at $5,00. The former are not enumerated in this catalogue. For 
certified copies of patents, including specification, drawing, certiticate, 
and grant, the price is 80c. A variety of indexes, giving a complete 
view of the work of the office from 1790 to date, are published at prices 
ranging from 25c. to $10.00 per voli<me. The Kules of Practice and 
pamphlet Patent Laws are furnished free. The weekly Official Gazette 
is sold at 10c. a copy or $5.00 a year. It contaius lists of the new patents, 
numbering about 450 a week. The Patent Office issues coupon orders 
in packages of 20 at $1.00 per package, or in books containing 100 cou- 
pons, at $5.00 per book. One coupon will procure a specification with 
drawings, and two coupons a copy of the Official Gazette. They are 
good until used. Address Chief Clerk. Patent Office. 

Such publications of the Education Bureau as are in print may be had 
gratuituously by addressing the Commissioner of Education. The 
separates from the Commissioner's report, however, except the report 
on education in Alaska, are now issued in a limited edition, which is 
retained by the Bureau for reference and loan purposes and is not 
available for distribution. 

The General Land Office publishes separate State maps of the States 
in which public lands are to be found, and also a large general map of 
the United States, which is sold at $1.00. Address the Chief Clerk of 
the Interior Department. 

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTIRE 

Those publications of the Department of Agriculture which are for 
sale, except those of the Weather Bureau, will hereafter be supplied by 
the Superintendent of Documents, Union Building, Washington, D. C. 
The Department has no list of addresses to which all its publications 
are sent. It issues a monthly list of publications, which is mailed to all 
applicants, enabling them to select such reports and bulletins as interest 
them. For the publications of the Weather Bureau application should 
be made to the Chief of that Bureau. The serial publications of the 
Department are not intended for general distribution. Requests for 
them are referred to the divisions from which they are issued, and 
instructions are then sent as to how the publications may be regularly 
secured. 

SMITHSONIAN IN.STITUTION 

In its latest published catalogue and price list the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion publishes this note: "The publications of the Smithsonian Insti- 
tution consist of Contributions to Knowledge, Miscellaneous Collections, 



8 June, 1807 

and annual reports. No sets of these are for sale, and most of the vol- 
umes are out of print. The edition of volumes of Contributions and 
Collections is limited, and is distributed to designated public libraries 
and to learned institutions in this country and abroad. A small edition 
of some of the papers in the above publications is printed for sale or 
exchange. For reports of the Institution or of the National Museum 
or Bureau of Ethnology, application should be made to Members of 
Congress or to the Director of the Bureau." fSeparates from the reports 
of the Institution are for exchange only. The annual report is the only 
Smithsonian publication that is a public document. All the others are 
paid for from the private funds of the Institution. 

VARIOUS BUREAUS 

The publications of the Department of Labor and of the Fish Commis- 
sion are distributed gratuitously through the heads of those Bureaus and 
through Members of Congress. They are in much demand, and complete 
sets can not much longer be supplied. 

The Interstate Commerce Commission sends its reports free to all 
applicants. 

HOW TO REMIT 

Eemittances to the Public Printer and the Superintendent of Docu- 
ments should be made by postal money order, express money order, or 
draft on New York. The Cieological Survey and tlie War Records Office 
will receive currency as well as postal orders if the exact amount be 
sent. The State Department will receive drafts on New York or Wash- 
ington banks, as well as money orders or currency. None of the Depart- 
ments or Bureaus will receive individual checks or postage stamps in 
payment for books. 

All the Government offices which have books for sale issue price lists, 
which will be sent free to all applicants. The prices charged are never 
more than cost and 10 per cent added, and frequently much less than

General Note 



AUTHORITY FOR PUBLISHING THE CATALOGUE 

This Monthly Catalogue is issued in accordance with the provisions 
of section 69 of the Act providing for the public printing and binding 
and tlie distribution of public documents, approved January 12, 1895, 
which is as follows : 

"Sec. 69. A catalogue of Government publications shnll be prepared 
by the Superintendent of Documents on the tirst day of each month, 
which shall show the documents printed during the preceding month, 
where obtainable, and the price thereof. Two thousand copies of such 
catalogue shall be printed in pamphlet form for distribution." 

There is no direction as to who shall make the distribution, nor to 
whom it shall be made. Thus far the Superintendent of Documents has 
exercised his own discretion in the premises. In pursuance of this dis- 
cretion copies of each issue have been sent to Senators, Representatives, 
and Delegates in Congress, to the designated depository libraries, to 
those Government Deiiartmeuts, Vmreaus. and offices which issue public 
documents, to the officers of the Engineer Corps, U. S. A. (by request of 
the Chief of the Corps), and, tiually, to those citizens who have asked 
for them. No arbitrary list of names of people who have expressed no 
interest in public documents has been made up. Only those unofficial 
citizens who were known to want the Catalogue have been supplied 
with it. By pursuing this course the small edition has thus far been 
saved from entire exhaustion, and it is still possible, in special cases, to 
supply all the numbers except the first. It will, however, soon be found 
necessary to increase the number printed or to adopt some more restrict- 
ive rule than that of "first come, first served," which has thus far been 
followed. Requests for the regular receipt of the Catalogue have been 
received from every part of this country and from several foreign coun- 
tries, and additional requests are continually received. 

SALES BY THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS 

Section 61 of the Act hereinbefore quoted provides as follows: 
"The Superintendent of Documents-is hereby authorized to sell at cost 
any public document in his charge, the distribution of which is not 
herein specifically directed, said cost to be estimated by the Public 
Printer and based upon printing from stereotyped plates; but only one 
copy of any document shall be sold to the same person, excepting 
librai'ies or schools by which additional copies are desired for separate 
departments thereof, and Members of Congress; and whenever any 
officer of the Government having in his charge documents published 
for sale shall desire to be relieved of the same, he is hereby authorized 
to turn them over to the Suiierintendent of Documents, who shall 
receive and sell them under the provisions of this section." 

In accordance with the foregoing provisions, prices are fixed on the 
documents named in the Catalogue. In those cases where iiublications 
are offered for sale by the Departments issuing them, and price lists 
have been issued, those prices have been adopted here. In other cases 
the prices have Ireen computed on the basis fixed in the law as above 
quoted. Except as otherwise stated in the body of the Catalogue, these 
computed prices call for paper or cloth covers, and a corresponding 
increase will be made for books bound in leather or half leather. The 



4 July, 1897 

cost of paper covers is about Ic. per volume; of cloth cases, from 10c. 
to 50c. per volume; of full sheep bindinji, from 75c. to $1.15 per volume 
for octavos and $1.50 for quartos; of half russia or half turkey, $1.00 
per volume. 

WHERE DOCUMENTS ARE OBTAINABLE 

It is the apparent intention of the new printing law (approved Jan- 
uary 12, 1895) that the sales of public documents shall ultimately be 
concentrated mainly if not wholly in the office of the Superintendent 
of Ddcumi-nts. The provisions tliat 500 copies of each of the various 
departmental publications of every kind, as well as of the numbered 
Congressional documents, shall be sent to him (sec. 58) ; that all the 
accumulated documents in the Departments not needed for official use 
be sent to him now and annually (sec. 67); that any public officer hav- 
ing documents for sale may turn them over to him (sec. 61) ; — all point 
to such an intention. But thus far the law has been only partially 
operative. No officer except the Public Printer has sufficientlj' desired 
to be relieved of the sale of books to induce him to turn them over to 
this office. The collection of the accumulations from the Departments 
is not yet completed. The decision that 500 additional de]>artmental 
publications shall be printed for this office has not been made to cover 
all such publications. Conse<iu(!ntly many of the current documents 
noted in the Monthly Catalogue can not be supplied, while of the older 
documents, of which many thousands are here on sale, no catalogue can 
be furnished. Thus the selling function of the office of the Superin- 
tendent of Documents is comparatively undeveloped. But its develop- 
ment is progressing steadily, if not rapidly. 

The arrangements for disposing of public documents which existed 
before the passage of the new law are still in operation. They sue 
extremely varied, and before the advent of the Monthly Catalogue no 
attempt had been made to collect them and publish a comprehensive 
statement for the benefit of general buyers. It is believed that the fol- 
lowing statement describes most of their important features. It is 
made, however, subject to correction as further information may be 
received. 

CONGRKSSIONAI. KECOKD 

The Congressional Record, containing the proceedings and debates of 
Congress, is issued daily when Congress is in session, and indexes thereto 
are published semimonthly. It is sold by the Public Printer on the fol- 
lowing terms : Single copy, 3e. if not more than 24 pp., and Ic. more for 
each additional 8 pp. ; per month, $1.50; pershort session, $4.00; per long 
session, $8.00. Subscriptions are payable in advance. 

The bound volumes of the Record are sold also by the Su])erintendent 
of Documents, the price averaging about $1.40 per part. The set con- 
taining the proceedings of the Ist session of the 54th Congress is in 8 
parts and costs $11.50. That for the 2d session of the same Congress is 
in 4 parts and costs $5.60. 

COURT REPORTS 

The volumes of Decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States, 
perhaps the most important of all public documents, have never been 
published by the Government. They are juiblished by the official 
reporter of the Court, through a private publishing house. There is 
a statutory provision that a number of copies, amounting to 300 in 
all, shall be furnished to various Departments of the Government free 
of cost, and that the price to the public shall not exceed $2.00 per 
volume. The cases in suits in which the United States are not plaintiff 
in error or appellant are also printed by contract at a ]trivate printing 
house. Those documents of the Supreme Court which are printed at the 
Government Printing Office are Imt a small i>art of the whole. They are 
printed in very limited editions for the use of the Court and attorneys, 



July, 1897 5 

and no provision is made for their distribution or sale. By far the greater 
part of the publications used in the proceedings of the Court are jtrinted 
by private litigants at their own cost. Occasionally, when a litigant 
pleads poverty, the Court makes an order that his printing shall be done 
at the (ioverument Printing Otiice at public expense. 

The documents of the Court of Claims are printed at the Government 
Printing Office, but only for the use of the Court, and in very limited 
editions. They are not accessible to the public except by consent of the 
attorneys in interest. The Court makes an annual report to Congress, 
which Is a ]iublic document, and its decisions are ]>rinted in annual vol- 
umes, of which only a limited edition, for official use, is issued by the 
Court. Private publishers, however, may, and usually do, order from 
the Public Printer sei)arate editions, which they offer for sale. 

CONGRESSIONAL QUOTAS 

Senators and Representatives in Congress have allotments, often very 
limited in number, of nearly all the more important Government pul)li- 
cations, which are distributed on their order from the Senate and House 
folding and document rooms. 

STATK DEPARTMENT 

The State Department distributes the Consular Reports and other 
departmental publications gratuitously, but sells the Revised Statutes, 
Statutes at Large, and pamphlet laws. Address Disbursing Clerk, State 
Department. If drafts are sent, make them payable to his order. 

The American Republics Bureau sells its own monthly bulletins, 
handbooks, etc., at prices usually ranging from .5c. to 60c. Address the 
Director of the Bureau. 

TREASURY DEPARTMENT 

The Charts, Coast Pilots, and Tide Tables of the Coast and Geodetic 
Survey are sold at the nffice of the Survey, in Washington, and also by 
one or more sales agents Iti each of the important American seaports. 
The monthly Notice to Mariners may be had free at these agencies, at 
all United States custom-houses, at the branch hydrographic offices of 
the Navy Department, and at the office of the Coast Survey. 

Public Health Reports, issued weekly, showing health conditions in 
various parts of this and other countries, as reported by the officers of the 
Marine Hospital Service and others, is for gratuitous distribution, but 
the edition is limited, and the document is intended only for health 
officers and other persons interested in sanitary atfairs. To obtain it 
application should be made to the Supervising Surgeon-General of the 
Marine Hospital Service, Treasury Department. 

The weekly Catalogue of Copyrights, prepared by the Librarian of 
Congress, is published by the Treasury Department, but is not sold by 
that Department, nor by the Librarian. Those desiring it must sub- 
scribe at the office of the collector of customs for the district in which 
they live. The price is $5.00 per year. 

WAR DEPART.MENT 

The volumes of the Records of the War of the Rebellion are sold at 
35c. to 90c. per part. The atlas is furnished unbound for $14. .50, and the 
plates composing it are sold separately at 10c. each. Address Maj. George 
W. Davis, War Records Office, War Department. 

The charts of the Northern and Northwestern Lakes Survsy may be 
obtained of Lieut. Col. G. .1. Lydecker, Cor]»s of Engineers, Telephone 
Building, Detroit, Mich ; or of ("apt. Geo. W. Goethals, Corps of Engi- 
neers, Office of Chief of Engineers, War Department, Washington, D. C. 
Charts will be sent by express, the express charges to be paid by the 
purchaser on receipt of the charts.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE 

Those publications of the Department of Agriculture which are for 
sale, except those of the Weather Bureau, will hereafter be supplied by 
the Superintendent of Documents, Union Building, Washington, D. C. 
The Department has no list of addresses to which all its publications 
are sent. It issues a monthly list of publications, which is mailed to all 
applicants, enabling them to select such reports Jind bulletins as interest 
them. For the publications of the Weather Bureau application should 
be made to the Chief of that Bureau. The serial publications of the 
Department are not intended for general distribution. Requests for 
them are referred to the divisions from which they are issued, and 
instructions are then sent as to how the publications may be regularly 
secured. 

SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION 

In its latest published catalogue and price list the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion publishes this note: "The publicafnons of the Smithsonian Insti- 
tution consist of Contributions to Knowledge, Miscellaneous Collections, 
and annual reports. No sets of these are for sale, and most of the vol- 
umes are out of print. The edition of volumes of Contributions and 
Collections is limited, and is distributed to designated public libraries 
and to learned institutions in this country and abroad. A small edition 
of some of the papers in the above publications is printed for sale or 
exchange. For reports of the Institution or of the National Museum, 
application should be made to Members of Congress." Separates from 
the reports of the Institution are for exchange only. The annual report 
is the only Smithsonian publication that is a ptiblic document. All the 
others are paid for from the private funds of the Institution. 



8 July, 1897 

The annual reports of the Bureau of Ethnology (with accompanying 
piipers) are distributed by Members of Congress and the Director of the 
Bureau; but the editions are not Ltrge enough to enable them to accede 
to all requests. Of the reports without accompanying papers, and of 
the separate papers, very few copies are printed. 

The publications of the National Museum comprise bulletins, annual 
reports, and an anuual volume of Proceedings. The editions of these 
are too limited to admit of general distriliution. The separates from the 
Proceedings and from the reports may be obtained on application to the 
Museum, until the supply is exhausted. 

VARIOUS ]JUREAUS 

The publications of the Department of Labor and of the Fish Commis- 
sion are distributed gratuitously through tbe heads of those Bureaus and 
through Members of Congress. 

The Interstate Commerce Commission sends its reports free to all 
applicants. 

HOW TO REMIT 

Remittances to the Public Printer and the Superintendent of Docu- 
ments should be made by postal money order, express money order, o^ 
draft on New York. The Geological Survey and the War Records Office 
will receive currency as well as postal orders if the exact amount be 
sent. The State Department will receive drafts on New York or Wash- 
ington banks, as well as money orders or currency. None of tbe Depart- 
ments or Bureaus will receive individual checks or postage stamps in 
payment for books. 

All the Government offices which have books for sale issue price lists, 
which will be sent free to all applicants. The prices charged are never 
more than cost and 10 per cent added, and frequently much less than 
that. 

All public documents, from whatever Department or Bureau they may 
be bought or procured, will be forwarded free of postage to all points in 
the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
