BibUography No. 1 May 1806 



Whistler was born, according to liis own statement, in St Peters- 
burg, Russia, of American parents ; according to Cliamplin's 
Cyclopedia of painters and jHiinfings^ Lippincott's liioyraphical 
dictionary and Appleton's Cyclopedia of American hioyraphy \\\ 
Lowell, Massachusetts, in 1834. Mr Theodore C'hild in his article 
in Harper* 8 magazine of September, 18S9, gives the artist's birth- 
place as Baltimore, and a i)ersonal friend declares that he was born 
in Stonington, Connecticut. It is said that Whistler delights in 
keeping up the mystery of his nativity. His father was Major 
George Washington Whistler, an engineer of wide reputation. His 
mother was Anna Matilda McNeill, a daughter of Dr 0. D. 
McXeill, of Wilmington, X. C 

Several years of Whistler's early youth were spent in Russia; 
his father, in 1842, having accepted the invitation of Emperor 
Nicholas to superintend the construction of the St IY»tersburg and 
Moscow railroad. Young Whistler came to America shortly after 
his father's death in St I^etersburg, in April, 1849. 

In 1851, at the age of 10 years and 11 months, he entered the 
United States military academy, at West Point, receiving his 
appointment as a delegate at large from President Fillmoiv. 

His career at the academv was unsuccessful. At the end of his 
first year his rank was 42 in a class of CO. In his second vear he 
was absent on account of ill health, and was examined in only one 
subject, drawing, in which he obtained the highest possible mark. 
At the June examinations, 1854, his third year, he was found 
deficient, and recommended for discharge. Throughout the three 
years of his course Whistler's name appears in the West Point 



Register very near the foot of the general demerit and conduct 
rolls of his class. 

It is not without interest to note that Major Marcus A. Reno, 
who was dismissed from the United States army in 1S80, owing to 
the official censure of his conduct during the Custer expedition 
of 1876 against the Sioux Indians, was one of Whistler's classmates. 

In less than two years after leaving West Point, Whistler went 
to England, to remain, however, only for a short time. 

In 1856, he was settled in Paris and hard at work in the studio 
of the famous genre painter, Charles Gabriel Gleyre, where he 
remained for two years and where he began in earnest his life's 
work. Among his fellow students were George Du Maurier, Mr 
Armstrong and Edward John Poynter, R. A., author of the 
nmch discussed painting, Diadumene. 

In 1859 and 1860, Whistler's paintings were refused at the Paris 

Whistler settled in London in 1863, taking up his residence on 
the Embankment, and beginning at once to draw his subjects from 
scenes most nearly at hand, the life of the Thames. 

It was in this same year, 1863, that he made a second attempt to 
have his pictures hung in the Paris salon. They were rejected, but 
the Salon des Refuses accepted them, thereby enabling him to 
appeal against the judgment of the critics who had refused him 
recognition. Among the accepted pictures was the White girl. It 
did more for Whistler than make a sensation. It caused Paris to 
speak of him as one of the " original " artists of the day. 

In 1877, Whistler exhibited a collection of his works at the 
Grosvenor gallery, London, on invitation of its owner, Sir Coutts 

In November, 1878, Whistler brought suit against Ruskin on the 
ground that Ruskin had libeled him in a criticism on one of his 
pictures exhibited at the Grosvenor gallery, called A nocturne in 
black and gold ; a night view of Cremorne, with fireworks. The 
criticism complained of appeared in Fora Claviyera^ and is as 
follows : 

" For Mr Whistler's own sake, no less than for the protection of 
the purchaser. Sir Coutts Lindsay ought not to have admitted works 
into the gallery in which the ill educated conceit of the artist so 


nearly approached the aspect of wilful imposture. I have seen and 
heard much of cockney impudence before now, but never expected 
to hear a coxcomb ask 200 guineas for flinging a pot of paint in the 
public's face." 

Whistler claimed that this criticism had injurea the sale of his 
paintings; Ruskin that it was simply a iaiv eiud bf ma Jide cnticism 
on a painting which the plaintiff had exposed for public view. 

The jury rendered a verdict against Ruskin, and placed the dam- 
ages at one farthing. 

In 188G Whistler was made president of the Society of British 

On January 30, 1892, he was created an officer of the Legion of 
Honor by the French govennnent. 

Whistler has now, 1892, deserted England as he did America, 
and spends nuxst of his time in Paris, where he receives more atten- 
tion and where his works are more favorably criticized than in any 
other of the .great art centers. 


Mr Whistler has always an electric manner, one feels it at once. 
It is specially notable when he is standing at his easel with brain, 
hand and eye all working in perfect sym])athy, inspired by the joy 
and difficulty of his art. — Illustrated news^ Apr. 9, 1892, p. 348 

He is a harum scarum genius ; keeps none of his work, makes no 
records, gives no help to any one who wants to help him ; generally 
makes no answers to letters. 

. . . for I had hoped ... to have listened to his delightful 
talk, which, though gay, witty and alert, is always simple, serious 
and dignified when referring to the art he loves so well and prac- 
tises with so sure a mastery. — Illustrated newSj Apr. 9, 1892, 
p. 348

This list of etcliings is taken from Mr Wedmore's catalog, which 
was kindly loaned for the purpose by Mr S. P. Avery, of New 
York city. The catalog supplies almost a complete list of Whistler's 
etchings from 1S57, when, as a young man in Paris, he issued his 
first plate, to 1886, and is an invaluable aid to the collector or 
student of Whistler. It gives under each subject a full description 
of the etching, as far as possible the date of its execution, size, 
exact signature, and other means of identification, proofs and 
impressions, rarity, etc. 

Mr Wedmore's catalog is also an excellent guide to Mr Avery's 
Whistler collection, which contains all the etchings mentioned in it, 
except nos. 56, 88, 98, 97, 99, 104-11, 113, 119, 127, 129, 133, 138, 
139, 189, 191, 194, 19S, 202, 204, 205, 207, 210-12, and 214. 

Collections of Whistler's etchings hang in the Queen's library at 
Windsor and in the British nmseum.

French sety Thauies seU Venice sety Jirst series and Venice set^

Ten o'clock. Boston, 1888 The gentle art of making enemies 

New York, 1890 


It is almost impossible to class Mr Whistler with any particular 
Bchool. "His work'' . . . says Mr Brownell, "is . . . 
now accepted as tyj)ical, and made to stand for a class of art, or at 
least a manner of jminting, of which the friends and foes are ardent 
and fluent." What this class is it is hard to say. He is most nearly 


associated, perhaps, with the impressionist school, yet he is not an 
impressionist in the strict sense of the word. 

*• The impressionists," says Mr Hamerton, " are a new sect, com- 
posed, as all new sects in painting invariably are, of young men who 
have not yet definitely formed their styles. . . They go to 
nature and receive an impression . . . and the purpose of their 
art is to render the impression as a whole, without either the pain- 
ful 8tudy of parts or any scientific arrangement of material." " In 
other words," quoting Mr Brownell again, " impressionism implies, 
first of all, impatience of detail. And, so far, Mr Whistler may 
justly be called an impressionist. . . But to associate him with 
a new sect, composed of young men who have not yet definitely 
formed their style, would l>e absurd ; and an intimation that his works 
are lacking in the study of parts or arrangement of material, would 
be false." 


Perhaps the most typical painter and the most absolute artist of 
the time. — Seribner^s mo7ithly^ 18 :495 

His etchings are universally praised ; but his paintings are both 
abused and admired. — Infernatlonal cyclopaedia 

Nothing can be more foreign to his art then set purposes ; the song 
of a bird is not more absolutely unconscious. — Scrihner'*8 montJily^ 
18 : 488 

It would be difficult to find a better example of a pure painter, 
a painter to whom art is so distinct a thing in itself, and so unre- 
lated to anything else. — Scrlhier^B monthly^ 18 : 487 

Mr Whistler's etchings attract a good deal of attention, and differ 
from his paintings in meriting it. They display a free hand and a 
keen eye for effect. Three of the oil pictures are blurred, foggy, 
and imperfect marine pieces. The fourth is called the " White 
girl,'' and represents a powerful female with red hair, and a vacant 
stare in her soulless eyes. She is standing on a wolfskin hearthnig, 
for what reason is unrecorded. The picture evidently means vastly 
more than it expresses, albeit expressing too nmch. Notwithstand- 
ing an obvious want of purpose, there is some boldness in the hand- 
ling and a singularity in the glare of the colors which can not fail 
to divert the eye, and to weary it. — H. T. Tuckekman, Book of 
the ArtistSj p. 485 


Tlie qualities of few painters are so distinct, and indeed one is 
tempted to say aggressive. Every one will perceive in liis slightest 
etcliiiig an effectiveness, an inipressiveness, a form which may or 
may not justly be called eccentric, but which it is impossible not to 
recognize as original. — Scn'bner^s monthly^ IS : ^S(S 

One can scarcely be as admirable in all ways as Mr Wliistler is, 
and still touch the highest point in any one way. — Serihner^s 
monthly^ 18:495 

Mr Whistler, in prose, is always pungent. Mr Whistler, in art, 
is always suggestive in more ways than one. — Neio York tribune^ 
Mar. 20, 1892, p. 14, col. 6 

Mr Whistler's suggestiveness is felt in the moods which his 
etchings call up. It is this expressiveness, this going directly to the 
core of the subject, this giving its fullest meaning to every line laid 
on the copper, which discloses in Mr Whistler's best work his 
affinity with Rembrandt and shows him to be an artist quickly 
responsive to human feeling. — S. R. Kokhler, Etehimj^ p. 102 

For with Mr Whistler's equipment, and energy and genius, the 
surprising thing about him is that there should bo any discussion 
concerning his position as a painter, that he should not have vindi- 
cated his ability by something of unmistakably large importance. — 
Scrihner'^s monthly^ 18:495 

And the nature of his ideal is singularly pure and high. It is 
this which, after all, finally measures an artist, the character of his 
ideal, his attitude toward absolute beauty, his conception of what is 
best in the visible world and the world that is to be divined. — 
Scrihner'*8 monthly^ 18 : 488 

Portrait of his mother. In the latter of the two portraits to 
which I have already referred (that of his mother), there is an 
expression of living character, an intensity of pathetic power, which 
gives to that noble work something of the impressiveness proper to 
a tragic or elegiac poem. — A. C. Swinburne, Fortnightly revieto^ 
49 : 745 

White gfirl. The White girl is certainly a lovely picture, but its 
loveliness has a marked individuality. Nothing could be more 
delightful than the simplicity and delicacy of line and hue of this 
figure, nothing more graceful than her attitude, or more subtly 
charming than the broad harmonies worked out by the dark hair 


and the lily, the wliite drapery, and the soft fur upon which she 
stands. On the other hand, no one can fail to note the sense of 
character which pervades its loveliness, and to observe how its 
individuality is quite as strong as its beauty is charming. — W. C. 
Brownell, Scrihner^s monthly^ 18:490

The 17th century is the period when Europe, shattered in its political 
and religious ideas by the reformation, reconstructed its political system 
upon the principle of territorialism under the rule of absolute monarchy. 
It opens with Henry 4, it closes with Peter the Great. It reaches its 
climax in Louis 14 and the Great Elector. It is therefore the century 
in which the principal European states took the form and acquired the 
position in Europe which they have held more or less to the present 
time. — Wakeman p. i 
Four main centers of interest in this century : 

1 Catholic reaction in Germany leading to the 30 years* war with 

the peace of Westphalia and its effect ; 

2 Contest in England between the Stuart kings and parliament ; 

3 Establishment of absolute monarchy in France and the struggle 

of the other powers against Louis 14 ; 

4 American colonies. 


Germany — War rages for 30 years 1618-48 and leaves the country 
in a helpless condition. 

Prussia first rises into prominence under the Great Elector, Fred- 
erick William. 

The United Provinces hold a high place at this period and are en- 
gaged in a long struggle with France. 

Sweden is at the hight of her power and possessions. 

Russia is rapidly rising and Poland is declining. 

Austria increases her power in Italy and Hungary. 

Turks press forward into Austria, from which they are driven out, 
and make some important conquests in other parts ; but their power is 
on the decline. 


England becomes one of the important states of Europe and besides 
being engaged in civil and foreign wars, is planting colonies in America 
and India. 

Union of the crowns of England and Scotland takes place in 1603. 

France under Louis 14 now becomes the leading power in Europe 
and makes great accessions of territory. 

Italy has fallen to a low condition. Savoy is slowly gaining in power, 
and Venice is engaged in wars with the Turks. 

Spain sinks to an inferior position. 

Portugal is freed from the Spanish yoke in 1640 but is of little 
account at this time. 

America. Colonization is rapidly going on, the English and Dutch 
taking the lead in planting new settlements. The Spaniards hold their 
first conquests but with a rapid decline of power. The French lay claim 
to the great territory beyond the New England possessions and are en- 
gaged in frequent wars with the English in the new as in the old world.

most treacherously murdered, for that is admitted, but that the treason of which 
he was accused had no existence. But the Wallenstein of German literature

University of the State of New York 

Object. The object of the University as defined by law is to encour- 
age and promote education in advance of the common elementary 
branches. Its field includes not only the work of academies, colleges, 
universities, ])rofessional and technical schools, but also educational work 
connected with libraries, museums, university extension courses and 
similar agencies. 

The University is a supervisory and administrative, not a teaching 
institution. It is a state department and at the same time a federation 
of more than 800 institutions of higher and secondary education. 

Government. The University is governed and all its corporate 
powers exercised by 19 elective regents and by the governor, lieuteiiant- 
governor, secretary of state and superintendent of public instruction who 
are ex officio regents. Regents are elected in the same manner as United 
States senators ; they are unsalaried and are the only public officers in 
New York chosen for life. 

The elective officers are a chancellor and a vice-chancellor, who serve 
without salary, and a secretary. The secretary is the executive and 
financial officer, is under official bonds for $10,000, is responsible for the 
safe keeping and proper use of the University seal and of the books, 
records and other i)r(.>{)erty in charge of the regents, and for the proper 
administration and discipline of its various offices and departments. 

Powers and duties. Besides many other important powers and 
duties, the regents have power to incorporate, and to alter or revoke the 
charters of universiiies, colleges, academies, libraries, museums, or other 
educational institutions; to distribute to them funds granted by the state 
for their use ; to insi>ect their workings and require anriual reports under 
oath of their presiding officers; to establish examinations as to attain- 
ments in learning and confer on successful candidates suitable certificates, 
diplomas and degrees, and to confer honorary degrees. 

They apportion annually an academic fund of about $250,000, part for buy- 
ing bO'»ks and apparatus for academies and high schools raising an equal 
amount for the same purpose, $100 to each nonsectarian secondary school 
in good standing and the remainder on the basis of attendance and the 
results of instruction as shown by satisfactory completion of prescribed 
courses for which the regents examinations afford the official test. The 
regents also expend annually $25,000 for the benefit of free public 

Regents meeting^. I'he annual meeting is held the third Thurs- 
day in December, and other meetings are held as often as business 
requires. An executive committee of nine regents is elected at the 
annual meeting to act for the board in the intervals between its meetings, 
except that it can not grant, alter, suspend or revoke charters or grant 
honorary degrees. 

Convocation. The University convocation of the regents and the 
officers of institutions in the University, for consideration of subjects of 
mutual interest, has been held annually since 1863 in the senate chamber 
in Albany. It meets Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday after the fourth 
Friday in June. 

Though primarily a New York meeting, nearly all questions discussed 
are of equal interest outside the state. Its reputation as the most im- 
portant higher educational meeting ot the country has in the past few 
years drawn to it many emment educators not residents of New York, 
who are most cordially welcomed and share fully in all discussions. It 
elects each year a council of five to represent it in intervals between 
meetings. Its proceedings, issued annually, are of great value in all 
educational libraries.

I Administrative (Regents ofHcc) — including incorporation, supervision, inspec- 
tion, reports, lcgi>Iation, finances and all other work not assigned to another 

Duplic^ite division. This is a .state clearing house, to which any institution in the 
University may send books or apparatus which it no longer requires, and select from it 
in return an equal value suited to its locality and needs. 

a Examination — including ]^reacademic, law, medical, dental and veterinary student, 
academic, higher, law, medical, dental, veterinary, library, extensi«>n and any other

The examinations are conductcil as the liest lever for securing better work Irom 
teachers and more svstematic and ctrntinuoun studv fr(mi students, and as the best means 
of detecting and eliminating inefficient teachers or methods. They cover 140 sub- 
jects and recjuired la^l year 913,500 question papers (exclusive *»f bound volumes),

Mr Adams has executed his task as far as it has gone with great care ; the only 
fear is, that to those not previously interested in Japan or the far east there may 
be too mnch of detail and too many extracts from blue books and dispatches 
vrbich are not attractive to the general reader. — Academy y May 1874, 5:593

It can not of course, take the place of larger and more detailed treatises, like 
those of Griffis, Adams, Kein and others; but it fills a long felt want of an inter- 


eating and accnrate connected history of Japan, of moderate size and price... 
The object of the book is ' to trace the story of Japan from its beginnings to the 
establishment of constitutional government' and that story is well told.— DtaZ,

It is certainly the best treatise on its special theme, and besides being a 
charming piece of literary art, conveys a large amount of information and criti- 
cal judgment from the Japanese side for which Americans may be grateful. 
The statements are in general thoroughly accurate and the temper that of a

The Japanese looks to the Shinto for his theology (save the mark!), to Confu- 
cius for his moral instruction, and to Buddha for his salvation. In his introduc- 
tion Dr Griffis makes clear the several functions fulfilled by these religions, and 
traces their historical development and modification. . . It may he safelj said 
that it is the best general account of the religions of Japan that has appeared in

This work describes a distinct find by its brilliant author during a recent 
sojourn in Japan, namely, of an elaborate system of possession trance practised 
by one of the sects of Shinto, the ethnic faith of Japan. . . The treatise stands 
a model of keen observation, deep insight, and scientific analysis, while over all 
this rigidly scientific material and method is thrown the charm of style that 
implies the blending of scientist a4)d poet. — Nationf Jan. 1895, 60: 98

From 5th to 7th century ruled by tribunes, 8th-i8th by doges. By 
II 7 2, there were three councils. The great council, self-elective from the 
outset, was closed in 1297 to all but the nobility. In 13 10 a council of 10 
was associated with the doge and his six councilors for the punishment of 
crimes against the state. The inquisition of state (' the Three ') was 
organized in 1454, two members from the council of 10 and one from the 
doges* council.

Tbongl) this is a poet's rather than a naturalist's book, fuller of deft fantasy 
than of ornithology, and dropping more easily into a moral homily or a rustic 
characterization tban into forest lore, it is a studious and, in a literary way, 
a painstaking volume of observations of natural snrn»utidings and is besides a 
near and neighborly view of a new region, the southern shore of Lake Erie. —

Bibliography no. 9 April 1898 



The list of books submitted aims to cover the most desirable modern 
works along the popular lines of history, description and art. The list is 
intended for the reader who wishes general information on Holland, 
rather than for the student who desires to specialize. The latter will 
study his history by period rather than by country and will therefore 
largely use parts of works, which, from a preponderance of other matter 
contained in them, have no place in such a list as this. 

In the department of history much additional matter bearing on 
the subject may be found in the lives of military commanders, lives of 
sovereigns of Spain, France, Austria, of the dukes of Burgundy and in 
the history of those periods in which England either opposed or aided 
Holland. Symond's Sir Philip Sydney \ Gothe' s £gmort/ ; Kirk's Charles 
the Bold and Stirling-Maxwell's Don John of Austria are types of 
these — a class which has been omitted as bearing only indirectly on 
the subject. The historical works of Juste, the great Belgian historian, 
are excellent, though they suffer from being a little out of date and some 
of the best of them have not been translated. They will be of more 
interest to the student than to the general reader. Schiller's Revolt of the 
Neilierlands and his History of the jo years' war have been omitted as 
being of literary rather than historical value. 

Only enough has been included on the reformation to suggest that its 
history is closely interwoven with that of the land where it found such 
hospitable shelter and stimulus and the country which produced one of 
its greatest leaders, Erasmus. Bacon's Genesis of New England 
churches y Neale's History of the so called Jansenist church of Holland, 
D'Aubigne's History of the reformation and a host of others treat of the 
religious history of the country. 


Holland in proportion to her size has contributed very many of the 
world's great lights in science and useful arts, as well as in the fine arts, 
for which she is so famous. Gutenberg, the father of printing, Linnaeus, 
the botanist, Spinoza, the philosopher, are names which testify to her 
diversified alertness and progress. Bibliographic notes at the end of 
cyclopedic articles will furnish the reader references to these men. 

In the field of travel and description there are many works written at 
the beginning of this century or during the closing years of the i8th, 
which are in the form of journals or letters, stilted in style, and whose 
place has been superseded by later volumes more readable in text and 
supplied with interesting illustrations. 

On the art side it has been found impossible to treat minor artists 
individually. After one passes the greatest three, Rembrandt, Rubens 
and van Dyck, it is useless to draw the line among the others except in 
a list devoted exclusively to art. Readers wishing material on any 
special artist should consult the general histories of art. Farrar's Art 
topics and Abbott's Outlines furnish exact page references to the most 
important artists. Valuable additional matter may be found in the files 
of the Portfolio^ Magazine of art and other art periodicals. 

Except in rare cases, juveniles will not be found in this list. 


Abbreviations following the main entry refer to the libraries in which 
the book was consulted or the sources from which the entry was taken. 
Call numbers are given for all books in the New York state library, even 
though the edition differs from that described in the list. Books in the 
public libraries division have no book number. 

Books marked e have been personally examined ; while e indicates that 
the edition examined is not the same as the one entered on the list. 

Periodicals have not been indexed. Poole's Index to periodical litera- 
ture and the Cumulative index will furnish references to such material as 
the magazines may contain. 

The references following the note are intended as an index to more 
extended reviews and notices which do not necessarily agree with the 
compiler's estimates. Volume and page numbers are separated by a 
colon; e. g. 3:145 means vol. 3, p. 145. When page citations do not 
refer to the edition described, the edition to which they do refer is indi- 
cated in a note.

Refates the old theory that American institutioDS are chiefly traceable to 
English example. Written to prove that the political debt of America to the 
Netherlands is greater than to any other country. While this idea is by no 
means copyrighted, Mr Campbell has treated the subject in a diligent, scholarly 
and critical way, massing his facts and authorities with convincing force.

author has studied documentary sources and presents new and vahinble 
information. He takes an independent view, in some cases disagreeing with 
Motley. Without elaborating on the inquisition and tyranny of the Spanish 
government he makes more evident than Mr Motley the faults and excesses of 
the insurgents, and thus clearer the partial failure of the revolution.

A vivid portrayal of one of the most draiuatio periods of modern European 
history. Covers the unsettled and turbulent age from the abdication of Charles 
5 in 1555 to the assassination of William of Orange in 1584. All Motley's work is 
the product of painstaking and profound research. His cbief merit lies in 908- 
tained interest in the men and deeds be describes. Possessing an enthusiastic 
love of freedom and hatred of tyranny ho has been criticized for partizansbip 
and hero worship. But his prejudices are good bonest prejudices and recent in- 
vestigations are only enhancing the value of his work. Motley remains the 
great standard for tbe period he covers. In clearness of diction, strength of 
characterization and dramatic power he has few equals.

Tbe object of ibis biography and the one following is to place in a tnie light 
the two Flemish heroes whom Froissart and tbe other early chroniclers bad mis- 
represented, and to show tbe real political meaning of the democratic movement 


of which the van Artevelds were the leaders and victims. James and Philip 
van Arteveldi father and son, resisted the oppression of the rich burgher class 
aud gained for the citizens of Flanders certain political freedom. Mr Ashley's 
work is closely limited to his subject and he does not at all attempt a history of 
Flanders. Within its limited scope, however, his book is more exhaustive than 
Mr Hutton^s and examines tendencies and results in a different spirit. Mr Ashley 
is a more painstaking aud scientific investigator and more cautious in his judg- 
ment. Of the two this work is the more academic in style.

Introduces considerable minute detail of the history of Flanders, somewhat 
detracting from the dramatic unity of the work. As the author sympathizes 
with aristocracy he is under a disadvantage in defending his subjects and there 
is lacking a hearty enthusiasm for the institutions for which the van Artevelds 
stood. In portions the author is lax in choice of material and in form of 
rx^ression. Mr Ashley's is the more satisfactory biography but both should bo 
read by anyone wishing to understand the movement thoroughly.

N. Y. 1874. Harper $4. 923.2492 B26 e 

The author intended these volumes as a link between the histories he had 
already published and the even more important work he had in contemplation 
on the 30 years war. They are an account of the years 1609-23. a time known in 
the Netherlands as the 'Twelve years truce.' It was a period of intrigues, 
between the prolonged conflict through which Holland had just passed and the 
coming struggle which was to involve all Europe. It was not a period well 
ailapted to Motley and this work will not rank with his others. Many of the 
dcsciiptions are graphic but it is difficult for the reader to gain a clear conception 
of the course of the narrative, of the cliaracter and policy of the man with 
whom it deals or the real cause of his death. The volumes are somewhat drawn

This work is the product of strictly original research and an attempt to stand 
on what is practically new ground. Her William of Orange is essentially iden- 
tical with Motley's but there is less color, liis shortcomings are more freely 
acknowledged, his growth and development are more distinctly emphasized. 
Portraits, facsimiles and a brief bibliography add to the value of the book.

Scholarly work based on thorough investigation and research at the Hague, 
with ranch new material. Traces the history of Holland from the death of 
Baruevtdd in 1623 to the second year of de Witt's administration, 1654. So far 
as it goes the work is vahiable but it is incomplete. Limited in scope, its chief 
value is as an introduction to the work by Lelevre-Pontalis.

By the term renaissance, is indicated a natural movement, not to be 
explained by this or that characteristic, but to be accepted as an effort 
of humanity for which at length the time had come, and in the onward 
progress of which we still participate. The history of the renaissance is 
not the history of aris, or of sciences, or of literature or even of nations. 
It is the history of the attainment of self-conscious freedom to the human 
spirit, manifested in the European races. It is no mere political muta- 
tion, no new fashion of art, no restorati(m of classical standards of 
taste. The arts and the inventions, the knowledge and the books, which 
suddenly became vital at the time of the renaissance, had long lain 
neglected on the shores of that Dead sea which we call the middle ages. 
It was not their discovery which caused the renaissance ; but it was the 
intellectual energy, the spontaneous outburst of intelligence, which 
enabled mankind at that moment to make use of them. The force then 
generated still continues, vital and expansive, in the spirit of the modern 
world Sxmotids

From the first dawn of the renaissance to the death of Raphael, the 
sister arts ruied a common territory, though in the atmosphere of the new 
time, the intimate relations of painting and sculpture were dissolving ; 
while their connection with architecture, which had likewise cast off some 
of its restraints, saved them from a one-sided pursuit of individual goals. 
Everything during that golden age seems held as by a fortunate balance 
in perfect harmony, nor does creative genius in any period of art, the 
most blooming period of Greece alone excepted, succeed in so glorifying 
the earthly in its inspired word. — Liibke

In architecture alone, the mysticism of the middle ages, their vague 
but potent feelings of infinity, their yearning toward a deity invisible but 
localized in holy things and places found artistic outlet. Therefore arch- 
itecture was essentially a medieval art. — Symonds 

About 1500 began a second Periclean period, wherein architecture 
brought forih works of the utmost importance and beauty. Toward the 
year 1540 a cooler and more sober element began to prevail in architec- 
tural designs. This was the transition to the closing period of the 
renaissance. — Liibke

Three periods in the development of the renaissance work may be 
roughly marked. The first extending from 142010 1500 is the age of 
experiment and of luxuriant inventiveness. The second embraces the 
first 40 years of the 1 6th century. The most perfect buildings of the 
Italian renaissance were produced within this short space of time. The 
third, from 1540 to 1580, leads onward to the reign of mannerism and 
exaggeration called barocc o. — Symonds

Filippo BrunclUschi^ 1377? -1446 

It requires a great personality like Brunellcschi, who, of the lirae and 
circumstances, yet rose superior to them, to lay the foundation of the 
revival of the arts. In the greater intensity of the individuality of the 
artist, lies one of the chief distinctions of renaissance architecture. —

In connection with the resuscitation of classical architecture, no name 
is better known than that of Alberti. Of noble family, he was the first 
who devoted himself to the subject from the scholar's point of view, and 
the fact of a man of his attainments choosing an architectural career is 
an indication of the great popular importance of the art in those days. —

Michelangelo was not properly speaking an architect. He made 
architecture, which is (juite a ditTerent thing, and most often it was 
the architecture of a iKiinter and a sculptor, which points to color, 
breadth, imagination, but also to insufficient studies and incomplete 
education. The thought may be great and strong, but the execution of 
it is always weak and naive. — Charles (iarnier. IJoeuvre ft la vie

After the beginning of the 15th century, a gorgeously rich aftergrowth 
of the (xolhic began to unfold itself, designated by the French under the 
name of the flamboyant style. The tracery of the windows is particularly 
affected by this manner, being composed of flame-like curves. The clos- 
ing epoch is marked by a richer decorative construction in secular build 
ings and private houses. — Liibke

Toward the beginning of the 15th century architectural style passes 
completely into the perpendicular, adopting an element of fanciful geo- 
metric work. Somewhere about 1450 there came into use the Tudor 
arch, the arches of arcades and vaultings being covered with a profuse 
decoration of pointed and scalloped work. England was not won by the 
new style till very late, but the Gothic here experienced that exuber- 
antly rii h revival which produced its masterpiece in the chapel of Henry 7. 
In the latter half of the i6th century the clumsy but showy Elizabethan 
style developed. — Liibke

classical revival made themselves overwhelmingly felt. — Symotids

Painting may be regarded as the supreme art of the renaissance world. 
The new attitude of man toward nature found its most visible outcome in 
the development of this art, which has for its function not merely the 
reproduction of individual objects, like the plastic arts, but the present- 
ment of visible nature at large. For fulness of spiritual meaning, 
painting alone can adequately represent emotional life in its truest mani- 
festations, — IVoltmann &* IVorniann

As in ancient Greece so also in renaissance Italy, the fine arts assumed 

the first place in the intellectual culture of the nation. But the thought 

and feeling of the modern world required an esthetic medium more 

capable of expressing emotion in its intensity, variety and subtlety, than 

sculpture. Therefore painting was the art par excellence of Italy. —

A book that made an epoch in art criticism, as it controverted in many in- 
stances the received opinions regarding tbe authorship of the pictures of the old 
Italian masters. Its author has been severely criticized, and there is still difler- 
ence of opinion as to the value of his methods of criticism, but the verdict in his 
favor is becoming more general. The Xation speaks of his work as a *model of 
art criticism* and Walter Armstrong cbaractcrized him as follows — *MorelIi*8 
real strength lay in tbo independence of his judgment. He says plenty of things 
which show bis claims to infallibility to be no better than those of many wbom 
he criticized. It is when he is confronted with time-honored descriptions that 
his strength comes out. He grasps the sense of the picture and perbaps gives a 
name to it, which as soon as pronounced is seen to be right.'

Fra Angfiico, 1387-1455 

(Guido di Pictro, called also Fra Cjiovanni da Fiesole and il Beato) 

Fra Angelico belonged to an earlier age, a simpler and more 
believing, if a less progressive one; the technical improvement and anti- 
Christian tendency of art during his latter years in no wise affected his 
essential, imaginative spirituality ; it remained precisely what it was and 
even anticipated the result of the struggle by drawing additional vigor 
from the contact. This constitutes the essential difference between Fra 
Angelico and his contemporaries. — Lord Lindsay 

In Angelico you have the entirely spiritual mind, incapable of con- 
ceiving any wickedness whatever. He was enabled to express the 
sacred affections upon the human countenance as no one ever did before 
or since. — Ruskin

Masaccio, 1401-28 
(Tommaso di Gioranni di Simone Guidi, called Masaccio) 

Of the many illustrious painters who flourished in the 15th century, 
Masaccio was undoubtedly the one whose genius has had the greatest 
influence on the progress of painting and who approaches the nearest 
to that high standard of perfection, which was achieved by the great 
masters of the i6th century. This is the more extraordinary when we 
consider the early age at which he died and the small number of works 
which he appears to have left behind him. — Sir A, H: Layard 

Foremost among the pioneers of renaissance painting, towering above 
them all, by head and shoulders, like Saul among the tribes of Israel, 
stands Masaccio. Between his style in the Brancacci chapel and that of 
Raphael in the Vatican, there seems to be but a narrow gap, which 
might perchance have been passed over by this man if death had spared 
him. — Symonds

Fro J'iiippo Lippi^ l4o6?-69 

Fra Filippo Lippi's chief excellence was that which distinguished him 
as the greatest colorist and the most complete master of the technical 
difhcullies in art of his time. He may not have stoically held to the 
severely great maxims which signalized the genius of Masaccio, his 
teacher, but he gave luxurious attraction to his works by a charm of color 
in which he may claim to have been unicjue. In his effort to reproduce 
the reality, however, he did not aim at the rotundity of nature but pre- 
ferred the characteristic flatness usual in bas-relief. — Crowe ^ Cavel-

whose favorite pupil, companion and assistant he was. He did not 
design the figure more correctly than Angelico, nor equal him in the pro- 
found feeling and air of his heads, but he has shown more invention and 


variety in his composition and mingled with his grace, a certain gayety 
of conception, a degree of movement and dramatic feeling not found in 
the works of Angelico. Ta meson

Signorelli was one of the first Tuscan artists who designed figures with

Orvieto evinces this, and those naked figures which even Michelangelo 
has not disdained to imitate. Although in most of his works, we do not 
discover a proper choice, nor a sufficient harmony of coloring, there are 
beauty, grace and tints approaching to modern excellence. — Lanzi

Sandro Botticelli was the only painter of Italy who understood the 
thought of heathens and Christians equally, and could in a measure paint 
both Aphrodite and the Madonna. — Ruskin 

Ir order to achieve that complete sensation of suave and cadcnced 
movement, Botticelli must have toiled infinitely. It is not in the propi- 
tious fever of a happy moment that such works as his are created, but by 
the long effort of an imaginative and receptive mind tenacious of its ideal, 
and by the mature and untiring energy of a temperament richly and 
delicately endowed both physically and emotionally. Such was the 
mind and such the temperament of Sandro Botticelli. — Child

* Mariotto Albcrtinelli is the type of what we like to imagine as the

veyor of witiy speeches and practical jokes. He was admirably serious 
when once he began to paint, and his pictures sometimes attain a high 
point of excellence; his ** Visitation " would in itself suffice for his reputa-

th* high renaissance, showing alike the religious feeling of the Umbrians 
and the splendid technic of the Florentines. Sympathetic rather than 
great, and lofty in feeling rather than in imagination, he charmed more 

by his beauty and purity, than by force or dramatic power. h C: Van

Raphaely 1483-1520 
(Raffaello Santi) 

In his life and in his work, in his ardor for knowledge, in his in- 
stinctive love for beauty and in the large serenity of his art, Raphael 
represents the best and highest aims of the renaissance. In him the 
world saw an artist whose own beautiful and gracious nature was in per- 
fect harmony with his dreams, whose creations draw the soul insensibly 
into likeness and sympathy with the beauty of reason. — Julia Cartwrighi

The chief excellence of Andrea del Sarto is his incomparable blending

parent clearness even of his deepest shadows and his i)erfect style of 
modeling. He docs not, like Bartolommeo, look at his subjects from the 
point of view of a deep religious feeling and a high ideal conception, but 
rather from that of worldly grace and loveliness. — Liibke

Titian aimed neither at strictness of expression nor at forcible

were within his grasp. The austere and glowing force of Giorgione 
resolves itself in Titian into a free and serene beauty — a pleasing and 
noble idea of nature ; it is life in its fullest power — the glorification of 
earthly existence, the liberation of art from the bonds of ecclesiastical 
dogmas. — Kiigler

Lorenzo Lotto was the first Italian painter who was sensitive to the

are most like him. His spirit is more like our own than is perhaps that 
of any other Italian painter and it has all the appeal to fascination of a 
kindred soul in another age. — Beraisofi

Milanese school 
Leonardo da Vinci ^ 1452*1519 

Leonardo da Vinci stands alone in the history of art, as one who both 
conceived and realized ideals which were wholly independent from the 
antique. Leonardo was the first who ventured to base all art instruction 
exclusively and entirely upon the study of nature, and it is not too 
much to say that in his genius the aims of his numerous predecessors cul- 
minate, making art no longer dependent on tradition, but more on 
the immediate study of nature herself. — T. P, RichUr

In spite of faults of composition, and a conspicuous lack of dramatic 
individualization and concentration, there is so genuine a feeling for 
beauty, particularly in the youthful figures, so much that is charming in 


his idyllic way of telling a story, that we must regard Luini as the most 
successful practical exponent of Leonardo's theoretical principles. — IVoIi-

not to be found perhaps in another artist. Had the sentimental beauty

Andrea Mantegmif 1431-1506 

Mantegna belongs to the foremost rank. There is such a depth of 
sentiment in his pictures, such a nobility in his features that we feel at 
once, he was not a man to be surpassed or imitated, but a nature whose 
animating influence must have been felt by all. Mantegna is the victim 
of a certain formality, which was only overcome by Leonardo and 
Michelangelo, through whose two-fold influence, Raphael afterwards 
obtained his happy freedom ; but this does not prevent us from ranking 
Mantegna with these three. This was the opinion in Italy also from the 
first. — Hermann Grimm

impassioned soul; a perfection of art able by color and by form to 
achieve, within a narrow range, what it desires. In his best work the

(Antonio AUegri da Corrcgsio) 

Correggio was a colorist and chiaroscurist of the highest order ; as a 
colorist he was unequaled in Italy outside of Venice; as a chiaroscurist 
he was an Italian Rembrandt. To those who think superficially 
Correggio is an arch-idealist ; to those who reason more carefully he is 
an arch-realist, but it is realism by selection applied only to the beautiful.

In comparing the 15th century with the i6th, we perceive that where 
the painters of the earlier period strove in vain to translate their knowl- 
edge into practice — where they frittered away their power in laborious 
details, and h\ spite of their finished realism and deep spiritual feeling, 
remained angul ir, fettered and hard — their successors found freedom 
and glow ani rose to the conception of typical beauty without being 
false to nature. The realism of the 15th century was objective; it dwelt 
on the individualization of the persons represented. That of the i6th 
was subjective ; it aimed at revealing the mind of the painter. — IVo//-

Martin Sihongattcr^ 1440-88 

Martin Schongaucr stood at the dividing line between medieval art and

mystic ism of a later time, he also foreshadowed the devotion to detail 
that was at last to merge into the modern passion for genre painting. — 
Conway Macmillan 

This master is the greatest artistic genius that appeared in Germany 
during the 15th century. At one time fantastic, severe and harsh, at 
another soft and delicate; now flying in the face of all feeling for the 


beautiful and again characterized by the most unconscious fidelity to 
nature, he exercised an extraordinary influence on early German art and 
stands before us a genuine precursor of Durer. — IV, Schmidt

It is very difficult to estimate Lucas (!ranach justly. To class him 
with Diirer or Holbein is to rank him too highly and yet when we survey

The distinguishing trait which decides the position of painting in the 
Low countries, is its realism both of form and color. While the Italian 
school slowly evolved from the Byzantine, based on the antique tradition 
of the ideal, the Dutch, alien in history as in temperament to this poetic 
descent, took root and grew rapidly and vigorously from the beginning, 
in direct inspiration of nature. — Nation

Hubert van Eyck^ I366?-I426 and Jan van Eyckj 1381-1440 

The new impulse that was given to art in the Netherlands at the 
beginning of the 15th century was given by the two Flemish brothers 
Hubert and Jan van Eyck. The great success of these masters, it has 
been asserted, was wholly owing to their invention of a better medium 
for painting — to their discovery, as it has been called, of the secret of oil 
painting; but no one who has studied the work of Jan van Eyck, can 
doubt that the real secret of his admirable painting, lay not in the 

mechanical medium he used but in the genius of the man who used it

Roger van der Weydcn is a central figure among the 15th century 
artists of the Low countries. Jan van Eyck was both a greater man and 
a greater artist than Roger, but Roger was the greater master. The 
leading painters of the second half of the century were either directly or 
indirectly pupils of his. He was the agent who took the new principles 
of Jan van Flyck and gave them currency not in the Netherlands alone, 
but throughout Germany and even Italy. — Conway

Memling was more ideal than the van Eycks and more skilful

In all the early French art is apparent a marked personality of motive. 
French art of the 15th century was so overborne by here Italian and 
there Flemish influence, however, as to be well-nigh stupid. Of the i6th 
century the prominent characteristic was the assertion of the individual. 
This was the first real revelation to France of the art of Italy. — Mrs

The latter half of the 15th century was the period when Spanish art 
began to assert itself in a more or less tentative way. Painting in Spain 
after Gothic conventionalties were dropped, resolves itself into three 
schools. There was the school of Castile originating at Toledo at some 
imperfectly ascertained date in the 1 5th century. Then the school of 
Andalusia with its center at Seville. Valencia gives its name to the 
third principal school of Spain which took its rise near the close of the 
X5th century. — Shthert

During the 15th century a change as subtle and indefinable as it was 
significant came over the spirit of European society. Without sharp 
break with the past, involving no strictly new creation, no sudden or 
unheralded revolution of ideas, gradually rose an altered mode of viewing 
man^ the world, life, far less theological than the old, less respectful to 


tradition, more confident in man's powers and future, in fine — 
human. — E. B. Andrews 

In this period monarchy, especially in France, England and Spain, 
acquires new strength and extension. The period includes the reigns of 
three kings who did much to help forward this change, Louis 1 1 of 
France, Henry 7 of England, and Ferdinand, the Catholic, of Spain. The 
Italian wars begin with the French invasion of Italy; the rivalship of 
the kingdoms and the struggles pertaining to the balance of power are 
thus initiated. In this period fall new inventions which have altered the 
character of civilization, and great geographical discoveries, of which the 
discovery of the New world is the chief. It is the epoch, moreover, of 
the renaissance, or the reawakening of learning and art. There is a new 
era in culture. All these movements and changes foretoken greater 
revolutions in the age that was to follow. — G: P. Fisher 


England. The 100 years war is just ended. The country is dis- 
tracted by the wars of the roses, which end in the accession of Henry 7 
and the Tudor dynasty. 

France. The war with England ends. Louis 11 and the nobles 
carry on a struggle which lays the foundation for absolute monarchy. 
Charles 8 and Louis 12 begin the invasion of Italy. 

Italy. The independent republics are now ruled by despots. Venice 
begins to lose her commerce and decline in importance. The quarrels 
of the states with each other lead to the long period of struggle and 
foreign interference. The decay of the papacy brings about the reform- 

Spain. The Moors are conquered in Granada, the two kingdoms of 
Aragon and Castile are united under Ferdinand and Isabella. The 
importance of Spain in Europe begins. 

Portugal. The period of discovery under Prince Henry the Nav- 
igator is at its close, resulting in the new era of commerce which gives 
a fatal blow to the commercial supremacy of Italy. 

German empire. The emperor Frederick 3 exercises no real power. 
The rule of Maximilian i begins. 

Russia. The Mongol supremacy is overthrown after a long contest, 
by Ivan 3 the Great, the founder of the united monarchy. The republic 
of Novgorod is subjugated. 

Sweden, Norway and Denmark are united. Unsuccessful at- 
tempts for freedom on the part of Norway and Sweden. 


Netherlands under the dukes of Burgundy. Through Mary's mar*' 
riage the provinces pass to Maximilian of Austria. 

Poland and Lithuania, united, are growing in importance. Western 
Prussia is annexed to Poland, and Eastern Prussia is made a dependency. 

Bohemia is in the power of the Utraquists which results in a period 
of religious struggle with Rome and Hungary. 

Hungary. The defeat of the Turks prevents their advance into 
Europe. After 1490 Hungary is united to Bohemia and the succession 
secured to Maximilian. 

Byzantine empire. Constantinople is conquered by the Turks, and 
Moslem power in Europe is established. 

America. The period of discovery ; Columbus, Cabot and Vespucius. 

Switzerland has just gained her independence and formed a powerful 
confederacy. Alliances with many European states are formed, and the 
fierce struggle with Burgundy ends at Nancy.

State Library Bulletin 

Bibliography No. 12. June 1898 



Public Libraries Division 


This is an annotated list of 212 books published in the United States 
in 1897, selected by the Book board of the New York state libwry and 
recommended to the public libraries of the state. To aid in the choice 
of small collections of new books three classes are marked. Books 
marked a^ of which there are 20, are suggested to libraries which must 
confine their additions within narrow limits. 30 others marked b are also 
proposed to libraries prepared to buy 50 books, and 50 more marked c 
may be added to a and b to make up 100 books. 

The remaining 112, including reference books and a few more costly 
publications, are worthy of careful consideration by libraries prepared to 
buy more than 100 books and by those wishing to enlarge their resources 
in special subjects. Many of the unmarked books are of the highest merit. 
Decimal classification numbers are prefixed as a guide to libraries using 
this system. 

Copies of this list may be obtained from the Public libraries 
division, Albany, N. Y.

Dedication to Joan, Toddle and Tiny 

Hani is the path from A to Z, 
And puzzling to a curly head ; 
Yet leads to books green, blue and red. 

For every child should understand 
That letters from the first were planned 
To guide us into Fairy land. 

So labor at your alphabet. 

For by that learning shall you get 

To lands where fairies may be met. 

And going, where this pathway goes, 
You too, at last, may find, who knows ? 
The garden of the singing rose. 

And rew L a \ ( ;, ) 'ellonv fairy book 


This list is intended asan aid in the nelection of children's books. Fairy tales in 
rhyme have been omitted as they form a group by themselves which the compiler 
hopes to undertake later. 

Call numbers are given for all books in the New York State library even though 
the edition differs fiom that described in the list. The class number only is 
given for books iu the extension libraries, while books in the traveling libraries 
are marked 'Tniv. lib.' followed by the number of the library and the book. 

Books marked e have been personally examined, while € indicates that the 
edition examined is not the same as the one entered in the list. 

Tbe source of critical notes is given, whether quoted exactly or given in sub- 
stance; unsigned notes are by tbe compiler. Volume and page numbers are 
8eparate<l by a colon; e. g. 3:145 means vol. 3, p. 145. When page citations do 
not refer to the edition described, the edition to which they do refer is indicated 
in a note.

ations are self-explanatory.

Bibliography No. 14 August i8g8 




This index duplicates a few entries in Whitney's Cataiogtie of the bibliog- 
raphies of special subjects in the Boston public library^ but these entries 
were included to make a complete index to the library bulletins examined. 
In general, titles of the bibliographies have been given only when they 
differ from the headings under which they are entered. Bulletins on 
special subjects are not included. 

The list of abbreviations which follows gives the titles, volumes and 
dates of the 48 bulletins indexed. All these bulletins have been per- 
sonally examined, and for convenience the New York state library call 
numbers have been added. Omission of book number indicates that 
the set is not yet bound. 

Entries are chronologic under each subject. Volume and page num- 
bers are separated by a colon; e. g. 3 : 145 means vol. 3, p. 145. When 
each bulletin is paged separately reference is made to volume, number 
and page; e. g. 11, no. 4: 2 means vol. 11, no. 4, p. 2. 

A manuscript supplement brings this index to date and any criticisms 
or suggestions for making the index more useful are invited and will be 
carefully considered before printing another edition, if sent to Melvil 
Dewey, State Library, Albany, N. Y.

Bibliography no. 15 January 1899 



The list of books submitted aims to cover the most desirable modern 
works in English on the history, description, religion, literature and art 
of that part of the empire of Russia known as Russia of all the Russias. 
Other Russias are treated only in their relation to the empire ; Siberia 
is excepted. 

Much additional matter may bejbund in works written- during the first 
half and middle of the century. The student will find valuable Hax- 
thausen's Russian empire, which was the first book to reveal to the outer 
world the social condition of the country. It shows thorough and wise 
observation. Schnitzler's Secret history of the court and government of 
Russia under the emperors Alexander and Nicholas portrays the diffi- 
culties in Russia that led to the revolts of 1825, the * Dekabrist riot ' and 
the consequent policy of Nicholas. It is the best authority on Russian 
affairs during the present century. Baron von Herberstein's Notes on 
Russia is a translation of Rerum Muscoviticarum commentari, a valu- 
able account of early Russia. The Memoirs of Catherine 2 expose 
the barbarity and brutality of the court of Peter 3, nowhere more 
graphically portrayed. 

Segur's History of Russia and leter the Great is valuable as a summary 
of that dreary portion of the early annals of Russia. It is written in a 
faulty and indirect style. Labbaurae's Circumstantial narrative of the 
campaign in Russia is one of the best descriptions of that period. 
Voltaire's Russia is a graceful summary of knowledge possessed a 
century ago. Kelly's History of Russia is a meritorious compilation of 
Karamzin and Tooke. 

Further material bearing on foreign relations may be found in general 
histories of Europe and of European countries and their rulers — specially 
of Great Britain in relation to the Crimea, the Eastern question and 
Central Asia, and of France under Napoleon i. 


The literature must attract our attention because of its intimate con- 
nection with the social, political and historical problems which are 
occupying the mind of Europe to-day. In no other country have so 
many prominent writers devoted themselves to bringing to light the 
conditions, needs and hopes of the toiling masses. At the bottom of 
the Russian revolution the fiction is exerting a powerful influence. 
With Herzen*s novel the tendencies of nihilism were first revealed, with 
Tchemichewsky's they became fixed. The novels of Gogol and 
Turgenev overthrew serfdom while those of Dostoyefsky, TolstoY, 
Gontchrof and Tcherdrine are the documents historians will consult 
when the great works concerning the revolution and old society shall be 
written. Some of these are not available in English and are therefore 
omitted in the list of books. 

A guide to novels and folk tales relating to life in Russia easily acces- 
sible to the general reader may be found in Griswold's Descriptive list of 
novels and tales dealing with life in Russia, In poetry no translation 
can be adequate, for the charm vanishes with the translator's touch. 
Warner's Library of the world^s best literature contains valuable critical 
and biographical sketches and selections. 

In the field of art the scarcity of books available to the English reader 
renders valuable the analytics in general works of art. Unfortunately 
Viollet-le- Due's Z*a/-/^f/xi<f is not translated into English; the student 
will find it a thorough and critical analysis of Russian decorative art. 
Schwarz' Uart Russe contains pictures with descriptive text. 

Periodicals have not been indexed ; Poole's Index to periodical literature 
and the Cumulative index will furnish references. In general no attempt 
has been made to give other forms of names under which a translated 
work is published. 


Abbreviations following tbe main entry refer to the libraries in which the 
book was consulted or sources from which the entry was taken. Call numbers 
are given for all books in the New York state library, even though the edition 
differs from that described in the list. Books in the public libraries division 
have no book number. Books marked C have been personally examined, while 6 
indicates that the edition examined is not the same as that entered in the list. 

Unsigned notes are by the compiler ; where the source of a note is given it is 
not necessarily quoted exactly, but is sometimes given only in substance. The 
references following the notes are guides to more extended reviews and notices. 
Volume and page numbers are separated by a colon ; e. g. 6 : 170 means vol. 
6, p. 170.
