THE Bulletin of Bibliography is issued as a medium 
of communication between The Boston Book Com- 
pany and its library customers. 
The special work of The Boston Book Company is to 
supply libraries with collated and perfect sets of periodi- 
cals — using the term periodical in its broadest sense to 
cover year books and the publications of societies, as well 
as magazines and reviews in any language. 

The favor of correspondence is requested whenever a 
periodical set, or a part of a set is desired.

This Bulletin is published^ primarily, as a means 
0/ communication between the Boston Book Com- 
pany and its customers. A constant endeavor will 
be made, however, to include in each issue enough 
original matter 0/ sufficient value to induce librar-

volume will be provided with a title-page and an 

No subscription price will be put upon the Jour- 
nal, and numbers ivill not be sold. It will be sent 
to a selected list of libraries, customers or likely to 
become customers of the Boston Book Company. 
The circulation of the Bulletin will be increased in 
proportion to the interest shown in it, and in the 
special work of the Library Department of the 
Boston Book Company. Correspondence is solic-

The vacation period is now fully over and 
library work has begun again in earnest. The 
time is at hand when the policy of the coming 
year must be outlined, the expenditure of book 
funds apportioned. 

This number of the Bulletin of Bibuography 
comes to you as a reminder that in order to keep 
the library well balanced in all its departments, 
a purchase of sets of reference periodicals is ne- 
cessary each year. Something must also be done 
to complete a few more of the defective sets. 

The value of periodicals in reference work is 
too apparent to need any comment here from us. 
We only urge you to decide early what sets you 
will add this year, and write us for estimates if 
what you wish is not on our advertising pages. 

This issue begins a new volume of our Bulle- 
tin. The few copies of volume one that remain 
may now be purchased at $1.50 each, neatly 
bound in buckram. Back numbers cannot be 
furnished, nor will any price be put upon the 
current volume until it is completed. 

We should be glad to receive for pubHcation 
lists or text articles of a bibliographical nature 
and of general interest to the library world. 

Some Notes on The Gentleman's Magazine. 
W. H. Brett, 


The " Gentleman's Magazine " is of interest 
not only for the intrinsic value and wide range 
of its contents but for its historical and literary 

The name " magazine " was first applied in the 
sense in which it is now so commonly used, to 
the "Gentleman's Magazine" by its founder, 
Edward Cave. When the first number of the 
"Gentleman's Magazine " was issued, George the 
Second had only been for four years on the throne 
of England. In Prussia, Frederick, not yet the 
Great, had narrowly escaped, at the hands of his 
tyrannical father, the doom to which his friend 
Kat was consigned, and was destined for eleven 
years longer to endure the petulant persecution 
of that testy monarch, who seemed to think more 
of a new recruit of the requisite stature, for his 
giant guards, than he did of his son and heir. 

The throne of France was occupied by Louis 
the fifteenth, and probably the worst of the name, 
and nearly all Europe was engaged in a war to 
settle the succession to the throne of a kingdom 
soon to be blotted from the map. The loyal 
American colonies of England, scattered in a thin 
fringe along the Atlantic seaboard, had as yet 
taken no important step toward that confedera- 
tion which was to bring independence, nationality 
and empire. In England itself the first Stuart 
rising was only about fifteen years in the past and 
the second about as far in the future. The king- 
dom which now sustains with equanimity a national 
debt of ;^640,ooo,ooo viewed with apprehension 
a debt of only ^^5 0,000,000, and that great finan- 
cial scheme, one of whose objects was to pay this 
debt off, the South Sea bubble, had a few years 
before blown up and bursted, an eighteenth cen- 
tury example of undue expansion. 

When the first number of the " Gentleman's 
Magazine " was issued, Pope was forty-three and 
his work was well nigh done, although the poem 
which is possibly the best known of all was not 
pubUshed until the next year. Thomson, bora in 
1700, had just issued the last of his poems on the 
seasons. Johnson, a young man of twenty-two, 

The Boston Book Company's 

Vol. 2 No. 1 

had just lost his father, the old book-seller, and 
was beginning a struggle which did not terminate 
until, more than thirty years afterwards, the gov- 
ernment gave him a pension and the Thrales a 

The Tatler, the Spectator and the Guardian 
appeared between 1709 and 17 13. The Rambler, 
the Adventurer, the Connoisseur and more of the 
same sort, in 1750, and the years following. Mid- 
way of this interim, came the first issues of the 
*' Gentleman's Magazine," which contained in its 
earlier volumes many communications which 
would have been welcomed by Addison or Steele. 

The publication office from which the first 
number of the magazine appeared in January, 
1731, and from which it continued to issue dur- 
ing the Hfetime of its founder and for many years 
afterwards, was the old St. John's Gate in Clerken- 
well. This was the old gate house of the estab- 
lishment of the Knights of St. John, the crusading 
Hospitallers who for so many years on the fields 
of Palestine and in Rhodes and Malta sustained 
the cause of Holy Church and the honor of Eng- 
land. A cut of the gateway appears on the title 
page of the first and subsequent volumes, sup- 
ported on each side by the list of periodicals 
from which extracts were most frequently made. 
A room over the gateway itself was the home of 
the Urban Club, and on the lower floor was a 
coffee room frequented by Johnson and others. 

According to the Introduction in the first vol- 
ume, the plan of the magazine was decided upon 
by a number of gentlemen to " meet a long-felt 
want." Their reason, briefly summarized, was 
this : namely, that, owing to " the overwhelming 
production of periodical literature," there being 
at that time not less than two hundred half-sheets 
issued in Ix>ndon each month, it had become 
necessary to provide a periodical which should 
extract the most important articles from each 
and lay them before its readers in a convenient 
form, and to this it was proposed to add original 
features of interest. In this day when we are ac- 
customed to find in a single issue of a Sunday 
paper more reading matter, exclusive of adver- 
tisements, than is found in Henry Esmond or a 
volume of Motley ; or in any one of the scores of 
monthly magazines as much as in an ordinary 
twelve-mo volume, two hundred half-sheets hardly 
seems overwhelming in quantity. 

The first volume, according to the title page, 
was edited by Sylvanus Urban, of Aldermans- 

bury, Gent. The second volume is edited by 
Silvanus Urban who spells his name this time 
with an "i" and adds neither place nor title. 
In the third volume the spelling of Sylvanus with 
a " y " is restored and the title " Gent." again 
added, but the fiction of the place is omitted. 
In this form it appears in all subsequent issues to 
the present time. 

The motto on the title page of the first volume 
was " Prodesse et delectare " : to this is added 
in the second volume those words afterward 
better known, " E pluribus unum." 

The list of journals quoted from, given on the 
title page, includes "The Craftsman," "The 
London Journal," "The Grubstreet Journal," 
"Fog's Journal," "The Universal Spectator," 
"The Free Briton" and several others. 

The full title reads, " The Gentleman's Maga- 
zine, or Trader's Monthly Intelligencer." The 
first part of each number of the earlier volumes 
consists of extracts from other journals, each duly 
credited. It was thus doing on a small scale what 
has since been done by the " Eclectic " and the 
" Living Age." 

In the first number is an extract from "The 
Universal Spectator," being a communication 
from a lady who signs herself Tristitia Stale, 
complaining of the persecution she suffers on 
account of being an old maid, and asking the 
editor to write an article in favor of the single 
life, and rebuking those malaperts who ridicule 
chastity. The same issue contains also a com- 
munication from Charlotte Wilful, who asks edi- 
torial advice as to the relative merits of two 
suitors whose attentions to her are being strongly 
favored by her mother. One is a well-to-do 
farmer, Squire Scrape, and the other, Mr. Myrtle, 
a man no longer young, who has squandered one 
fortune but expects shortly to inherit another. 
She warns the editor, however, in a sort of post- 
script, that he must be prompt, as she has already 
decided to elope on the next Tuesday with Mr. 
Plum, a young lawyer from the Inner Temple, 
who, although without money, has an amiable 

Among the items of news in the first volume 
are an account of the drowning of an old woman 
accused of witchcraft, and the repeated appear- 
ance of a ghost by whose means a murder was 
revealed and the remains of the victim found. 
The propriety of an experimental operation upon 
the ear of a condemned criminal is debated pro

and con. Usually there does not appear to have 
been time to perform operations upon condemned 
criminals, as it was apparently the custom to exe- 
cute the sentence the next day after it was pro- 
nounced. In one case it notes that, the trial 
being concluded on Saturday, the execution was 
deferred until Monday. The first number notes 
without comment the sentence of a murderer to 
be hung, disembowelled and quartered, and of 
his accomplice, a woman, to be burned. The 
magazine seems to have paid much attention to 
crime and punishment. The volume for 1759 
contains a long and circumstantial account of 
the crime, trial and punishment of Eugene Aram, 
afterwards made famous by Bulwer and Hood, 
and among other interesting things in the first 
volume are a New Year's ode by Colley Gibber, 
the poet laureate, a long Latin epitaph, fortunately 
with a translation, on Mrs. Oldfield, and a conver- 
sation between the souls of a bishop, an actress 
and a physician, buried in Westminster Abbey. 
After a spirited discussion which becomes de- 
cidedly personal, the doctor attempts to close 
the conversation by telling the lady that a 
woman with such a tongue would turn paradise 
into a purgatory. She retorts that such a physi- 
cian would abolish immortality and make a desert 
of paradise. That ends the discussion ; the cof- 
fin lids close and silence reigns. 

There is a fierce argument against a standing 
army, and also a notice that a tradesman 
has discovered perpetual motion. Men pass, 
but evidently questions of policy and investiga- 
tion remain. There is also an account of the 
seizure of English ships and the torture of their 
crews by Spaniards. This was probably the oc- 
currence which led nine years later, to the attack 
on Cartagena, known as the "War of Jenkin's 
ear." There is also an account of a raid on a 
gambling house, in which the language used 
appears to be technical. 

Other features of each magazine are a record 
of current events, list of prices current, list of 
those who have failed in business disguised under 
the following form : B-kr-pts. 

The founder of the magazine was Edward 
Cave, the grandson of a gentleman and the son 
of a shoemaker, who seems to have been the 
better man of the two. He was born in 1694, 
attended school at Rugby for a time, was after- 
wards clerk to an excise collector and apprentice 
to a lumber merchant. He learned the printing 

trade, married a widow with some money, held a 
position in the postoflfice for a time, and then 
started the magazine which made him reputation 
and fortune. Although he had vainly urged the 
enterprise upon other publishers before under- 
taking it himself, no sooner was the magazine 
fairly established than rivals and imitators sprang 
up. For several years a competing magazine 
was edited by a former writer for Cave's maga- 
zine, which bore the same title and claimed to be 
the magazine. It reminds one of the rivalry not 
far from the same time between Benjamin Frank- 
lin and the opposition almanac maker. Franklin, 
indeed, started in Philadelphia a magazine on a 
similar plan bearing the title "The General 
Magazine," which never went farther than six 
issues, failing to be supported. 

Cave had other troubles. Twice he was ar- 
rested and punished for indiscreet publication of 
parliamentary or other public matters. In 1 738 
he was forbidden to report parliamentary proceed- 
ings. This was evaded by the device of report- 
ing regularly the proceedings of the parliament 
of Great Lilliput, and giving the prominent men 
fictitious names. 

This suggests one of the most interesting epi- 
sodes in the history of the magazine, the connec- 
tion with it of Dr. Johnson. 

Dr. Johnson came to London in 1 738 with 
little money, some letters of introduction, and an 
unfinished tragedy in his pocket. After a time 
he was introduced to Cave by Savage, the un- 
happy author of " The Wanderer." He was em- 
ployed by Cave and continued to write for the 
magazine regularly for several years, doing, 
among other things, the parliamentary report 
under the fiction of Great Lilliput. This was the 
first regular literary employment which he had. 
After his immediate connection with the maga- 
zine ceased, he still contributed occasionally to it, 
and his friendship for Cave continued through life. 

Cave lived to see the magazine a great success 
and to reap a fortune from it. He died in 1754. 
His life was written by Dr. Johnson, and a por- 
trait etched by Worlidge, from a painting by 
Kyte, appears in " The Gentleman's Magazine," 


After the death of Cave it was carried on for a 
time by his brother-in-law, David Henry, and 
afterwards passed into other hands. Although 
for so long a period as it has been published, the 
changes of ownership have been few. 


The Boston Book ODmpany's 

Vol. 2 No. 1 

From the beginning until 1782 the numbers 
for each year were bound in one volume. From 
1782 to date it has been paged and bound in two 
volumes each year. About the same time an 
improvement was made in the typography, and 
again about i860 a change was made in its 
dress. The number of the current volume [Oc- 
tober, 1899] is 289. 

From the early days of the magazine until i860 
great attention was paid to archceology and folk 
lore. This is well illustrated in the series of six- 
teen volumes of selections edited by Laurence 
Gomme. These treat of folk-lore, archaeology, 
literary curiosities, and bibliography, architectural 
antiquities and topography. A similar plan was 
suggested by Gibbon about 1790 and was carried 
out some twenty years later, being published in 
four volumes. 

In i860 a decided change was made in the 
policy of the magazine, and since that time it 
has little to distinguish it from other miscel- 
laneous magazines, although occasionally an article 
appears which has the old flavor. 

One of the most delightful things to me in 
turning over the historical pages of the old maga- 
zine is the charm of its contemporaneousness. 
I well remember how I was impressed when I 
found in the writings of one of the early fathers a 
letter to the Christians in prison expecting martyr- 
dom. The whole situation was made real to me. 

In just the same way the accounts in these old 
magazines of historical events which have since 
become famous, accounts which are generally 
imperfect and partial, give a stronger impression 
of reality than the finished history written at a 
later time : a reality due to the fact that to the 
writer they were actual and present. 

One may find in this magazine a current ac- 
count of the wars of Frederick the Great, accom- 
panied by excellent ropper-plate maps. One 
may find General Wolfe's dispatches detailing 
the operations before Quebec, followed by a let- 
ter from General Townshend, his successor, telF- 
ing the story of the battle and the death of Wolfe. 
The correspondence at Boston between General 
Howe and Mr. Washington is interesting, and 
after following the course of the war it is interest- 
ing to note the arrival at Whitehall, after two 
months' journey, of a member of I^rd Cornwallis' 
staff, bringing the general's account of that un- 
fortunate aflfair, the defeat of Colonel Tarleton by 
General Morgan. 

It follows the course of the French Revolution 
and Napoleon's career very seriously, but after 
the emperor is sent to Elba, like the literary 
gentleman with a wooden leg, it drops into 

poetry : — 

Little Nap Horner 

Is up in a corner 
Dreading his doleful doom. 

He who gave in his day 

Whole kingdoms away 
Now is glad to get Elba room." 

And so it chronicles the passing events through 
the times of reform, the Indian mutiny, and our 
own Civil War. 

The literary features of the magazine were of 
interest from the beginning. Although without 
poetic talent. Cave was, as Johnson says in his 
sketch, " a greater lover of poetry than any other 
art." While at first he relied upon clippings for 
the more solid part of his journal, he desired to 
obtain original communications for the poetical 
department. These were soon abundant, and 
the editor had to choose between the claims of 
many rival amateur poets. Nor was he contented 
to merely sit in judgment, but often attempted 
to straighten the crooked feet or revise the 
measure of the verses, and thereby he incurred 
the ill-will of the fond authors of their being. 
Later he offered prizes of money or books for 
the best poems upon stated subjects and for epi- 
grams, of which he was particularly fond. 

Throughout the first hundred years of the ex- 
istence of the magazine it has a strong classical 
flavor. Original Latin verses, translations from 
the Greek and I-^tin poets, especially the more 
genial ones, and classical quotations, abound. 

The first number contains a list of books pub- 
lished during the month and a half-page adver- 
tisement of one, a volume of sermons. In the 
second number it advertised at length a complete 
history of the executions which took place in 
1730. At first only brief paragraphs were given, 
but later the reviews became a feature, and from 
its foundation until about i860 almost every 
book of importance which appeared in England 
was either noticed or reviewed in its pages. To 
attempt to name them would be to give a cata- 
logue of the best English writers of a century 
and a half. 

Science also received attention. The first 
published accounts of Franklin's electrical ex- 
periments appeared in the " Gentleman's Maga- 
zine " for 1750.

Bulletin of BibliograpHy 

These suggestions of some of the many inter- 
esting things in this old magazine have been 
culled principally from its own pages. 

It is an interesting and impressive thought 
that through all the years with their changing 
seasons, the vicissitudes of peace and war which 

have passed since the issue of the first number in 
January, 1731, no month has passed in which the 
" Gentleman's Magazine " did not bring to readers 
and homes in town and country, its chronicle of 
events, with the opinion and genial comment of 
Sylvanus Urban, Gentleman.

Cataloguer, the John Crerar Library, Chicago 

This list contaios, with one or two exceptions, 
such bibliographies as deal with the Philippines 
only. Some titles here given are of books that, 
without being bibliographies, contain bibliograph- 
ical information. 

The main source of information has been the 
notes in the preface of " Catdlogo abreviado de 
la Biblioteca Filipino de VV. E. Retana " (^see 36 
in this list). Other sources have also been 
consulted, for instance, Emm. dc Marquie : " Ca- 
talogue des bibliographies g^ologiques," Paris, 

1896, and Henri Stein: "Manuel de bibilio- 
graphie g^n^rale." Paris, 1897. Reference has 
in all cases been made to the source of informa- 
tion. In the case of Stein, this only means that 
information has been found there ; it has been 
necessary to copy the titles from other bibliogra- 
phies. In all cases where a book has been found 
in Retana, reference has been given to its num- 
ber there. When the book itself has been seen, * 
before the title is used to show that entry has been 
made directly from a copy.

It should be added that Mr. A. P. C. Griffin, 
of the Library of Congress, has prepared a list 
of books relating to the Philippines. It was 
prepared for the use of the members of the Phi- 
lippine Commission, and not printed ; but I un- 
derstand that Mr. Griffin is constantly adding to 
the list, which may be published later on.

Bulletin of Bibliography 




In September, 1899, there appeared Every- 
body's magazine, said to be published by Wana- 
maker, but bearing the imprint of "The North 
American Co., 74 East Ninth St., New York." 
This magazine is sold at ten cents, and is a popu- 
lar illustrated monthly. No. 2 is dated October, 
No. 3, November, 1899, and with an attractive 
cover will doubtless prove popular with the public. 

Iht ** Royal magazine'^ is a London monthly 
illustrated periodical, published at three pence by 
Arthur Pearson, Ltd. No. i was issued under 
date of November, 1898. October, 1899, com- 
pleted volume 2. 

On looking over the first number of Every- 
body's magazine, the writer was immediately 
struck by the evident English appearance of the 
illustrations. Suspicions being thus aroused, a 
comparison of the two publications led to a dis- 
covery which may be of interest to librarians. 

Everybody's magazine is using stories and ar- 
ticles from the Royal. In fact out of the twenty 
articles contained in the 104 pages of No. i, thir- 
teen are from various back numbers of the Royal 

Unlike other American editions of English ma- 
gazines the original plates are not used, but the 
text is reset, usually word for word. 

The same picture cuts are, however, used, for 
they appear to be exactly alike in both peri- 
odicals. The thirteen duplicated articles in 
Everybody's magazine. No. i, are from Nos. 6, 4, 2, 
7, 4, 8, 1, 5, 1, 5, 7, 7, 7, respectively of the Royal. 

In Everybody's, No. 2, there are twenty-one ar- 
ticles of which all but eight are republished from 
the Royal. They occur in Nos. i, 9, 4, 8, i, 11, 
2, 10, 10, II, II, 4, 4, respectively. In giving 
these numbers we follow the order in which the 

articles appeared in Everybody's magazine. It will 
thus be seen that the American editor draws at 
random on the back numbers of Royaliox material. 

In Everybody's, No. 3, there are eighteen arti- 
cles, of which five only are not found in Royal, 
vols. I and 2. In two of these five the same 
pictures are employed. 

We note a few cases where the American has 
not exactly followed the English magazine. For 
example : In a story, " The coachman's daughter " 
in Everybody's, No. 2, for October, 1899, two illus- 
trations are omitted which originally embellished 
the story in the Royal, November, 1898. 

The few articles which have appeared only in 
Everybody's are most of them very short. The 
series of pictures of American college presidents is 
perhaps the most valuable American contribution. 

A letter written the publishers of Everybody's 
asking in what English magazine some of the ar- 
ticles had appeared, elicited a rather tardy re- 
sponse, wherein it was stated : " So far as we 
know and believe, but one article printed by us 
has ever appeared in any American magazine. 
Some of them may have appeared in the Royal, 
of London. We are syndicating a great deal with 
certain English publishers." 

It will be seen that this rather guarded state- 
ment reluctantly admits a possibility of a partial 
use of what was published in the Royal. 

A letter to the Pearson Publishing Co., which 
issues the Royal, Pearson's, Pearson's weekly. 
Home notes, etc., brings the following prompt 
reply: "We furnish the entire contents, per 
arrangement, of Everybody's magazine, to the 
North American Company." 

Thus we get at the truth concerning Mr. Wana- 
maker's new Everybody's magazine. F. W. F.

There are two kinds of collation as applied to books. 

1 . "To bring together and compare. Examine 
critically, noting points of agreement and dis- 
agreement." — Cent. Diet. 

2. " In bookbinding, to verify the arrangement 
of, as the sheets of a book after they have been 
gathered. It is usually done by counting and in- 
specting the signatures at the foot of the first page 
of each sheet." — Cent. Diet. 

No. 2 is sufficient for new books without plates, bound 
from sheets, but no. i is the only thorough way to collate 
periodical sets, wliich are almost always second-hand, and 
usually irregular in issue. 

The Boston Book Company, uses method no. i exclusive- 
ly, thus guaranteeing its customers the receipt not only of all 
text, plates, title pages and indexes, but also of the extra num- 
bers, supplements and illustrations often published but in many 
instances not called for in the contents, or in any way noted in 
the regular issues. 

Such extras are often of great importance, as in the case of 
Transactions of the National Association for Promotion of 
Social Science, The Studio, Bookman (N. Y.), etc., etc. 

The mere counting of the pages of the volumes is of little 
importance, without a critical examination and comparison of 
one set with another, and this few libraries are in a position 
to do. Is it safe to buy expensive sets without knowing whether 
they are complete or not? All our sets are examined and

Littell's Living Age has published, during a weekly issue of over half a century, the most valuable 
articles from all the English periodicals. It will therefore be a fair substitute for these expen- 
sive reviews in any library which has Poole's Index. It is the most valuable " Poole set ". 

Poole's Index, third edition, indexes in one alphabet the articles published in the English and Ameri- 
can periodicals from 1800 to 1882, and is the basis of all reference work in a small library.

Bulletin of Bibliography 

JANUARY, 1900 

No. 2 

This Bulletin is published, primarily , as a means 
of communication betiveen the Boston Book Com- 
pany and its customers. A constant endeavor will 
be made, however, to include in each issue enough 
original matter of sufficient value to induce librar- 
ians to preserve and bind up the numbers. Each 
volume will be provided with a title-page and an 

No subscription price will be put upon the jour- 
nal, and numbers will not be sold. It will be sent 
to a selected list of libraries, customers or likely to 
become customers of the Boston Book Company. 
The circulation of the Bulletin will be increased in 
proportion to the interest shown in it, and in the 
special work of the Library Department of the 
Boston Book Company. Correspondence is solic- 
ited, and should be addressed, 

The Boston Book Company, 

7/^ Beacon St., Boston, Mass. 



We are glad to present as our leading article 
of this issue, the first portion of a children's 
reading list on art and artists by one of the 
Pratt Institute Library School graduates. It is a 
careful and thorough compilation, and will be 
a companion piece to the excellent "Animal 
List " recently published by the Bulletin of 
Bibliography. We intend to issue the present 
list separately as Bulletin of Bibliography Pam- 
phlet No. 8. (10 cents.) 

We publish in this number certain corrections 
which we think many owners of Poole's Index 
will be glad to make in their copies of the work. 
We hope to continue this list in our April issue, 
by printing errata in the references. Many li- 
brarians we feel sure would welcome such a list ; 
may we ask any one who has noted any errors 
in Poole to send them, even though the correct 
entry has not been discovered. It is desirable 
that the list should be as complete as possible 
before anything is published. Miss Frederika 
Wendte, of the periodical department, Boston 
Public Library, who has already noted many mis- 
prints, has consented to edit the list. Correc- 
tions may be sent direct to her, or to The Boston 
Book Company. We hope all who have noted 
errors will cooperate by sending list soon.

I. The Chronological Conspectus and Abbreviations; Titles and Imprints. 


In a work of the magnitude of Poole's Index 
it would be indeed surprising were not a few 
tjrpographical errors found. The cooperative 
plan on which the volumes have been compiled 
makes the chance of error greater. The wonder 
really is that the mistakes are so few and insig- 

In compiling lists of Poole periodicals I have 
found from time to time misprints, more or less 
important, in both the list of " Abbreviations, 
Titles, and Imprints," and the "Chronological 
Conspectus " of the various volumes of the Index. 
These two tables occur ? t the beginning of each 
of the volumes. 

I print this list with the hearty approval of the 
present editors, and in the hope that librarians 
may use it in making the corrections in their 
copies of Poole's Index. Several of the errors 
here noted have been corrected in the more recent 
editions, but most libraries are still using copies 
purchased when first published. 

* To be followed by a list of errata in the references ; any 
library having noted such errors will please communicate with us.

Recognizing the importance of periodical literature in modern libraries, The Boston Book 
Company established its Library Department with the idea that a definite service could be rendered 
ovcrvrorked librarians by an intelligent effort to supply them with sets of Periodicals and Society 
Transactions bibliographically complete and materially perfect% 

Under the old method, librarians were forced to buy such sets or parts of sets as appeared in 
booksellers' catalogues, or were privately offered to them, taking their chances as to the complete- 
ness or perfectness of the sets. Before the publication of "Poole's Index" the shortcomings of 
such a mode of purchase were not apparent, because the deficiencies in sets so bought were not 
brought to special notice ; but in these days of thorough indexing, the constant showing up of tan- 
talizing defects obliges the conscientious librarian to assume the labor of collation, and the subse- 
quent vexatious time and money cost involved in trying to make the defects good. 

It is exactly this burdensome and wasteful labor which The Boston Book Company has 
endeavored to save librarians, by supplying only sets which have passed through the hands of a 
conscientious and carefully trained staff of collators. 

We find, however, that some librarians still prefer to buy sets by the old method, and to such 
librarians we wish to make it known, that while we consider our method the economical and prefer- 
able one to libraries in the end, we are entirely willing to sell uncoUated sets to such as prefer to 
buy them. 

We have always a great many uncollated sets on hand (because conscientious collation is a 
tedious and time-consuming work), and we can offer them as cheaply as any other dealers. In 
such cases we will make an offer of the volumes actually on hand, but will not undertake to supply, 
as we do ordinarily, every page, index, supplement, appendix, plate, or map. 

It is needless to say we shall do our best to supply any defects found by the purchasers of such 
sets ; and with by far the largest stock of periodicals in the country, our chances of being able to 
furnish what is needed are excellent. 

The Boston Book Company only asks that a fair comparison of price and quality be made» 
and is perfectly willing to sell to librarians by any method they may prefer.

Bulletin of Bibliography 

Vol. 2 

APRIL, 1900 

No. 3 

This Bulletin is published, primarily, as a 
means of communication between the Boston 
Book Company and its customers. A constant 
endeavor will be made, however, to include in 
each issue enough original matter of sufficient 
value to induce librarians to presence and bind 
up the numbers. Each volume will be provided 
with a title-page and an index. 

No subscription price will be put upon the jour- 
nal, and numbers tvill not be sold. It will be sent 
to a selected list of libraries, customers or likely to 
become customers of the Boston Book Company. 
The circulation of the Bulletin will be increased 
in proportion to the interest shown in it, and in 
the special work of the Library Department of 
the Boston Book Company. Correspondence is 
solicited, and should be addressed, 

The Boston Book Company, 

15% Beacon St., Boston, Mass. 


A notable contribution to this year's numbers of 
the Bulletin of Bibliography will be the " Crom- 
well Bibliography," the first part of which appears 
in our present issue. 

Miss Wendtd's reading list on the Paris exposi- 
tion is timely and gives the principal magazine 
references to the great French fair. 

We beg to remind our customers and readers 
that in May each year we make special reduc- 
tions on all our stock, in order to clear as much as 
possible for stock-taking. 


We are glad to be able to correct so many 
errors, as we feel that the compilation will be of 
much assistance to Ubrarians. We may remark 
here as showing the value of interviews or letters 
as compared with advertising, that we received one 
error as a result of our appeal in the January Bul- 
letin, while the rest have been secured by the 
personal effort of the Editor. 


The Boston Book Company will publish in May 
or June, a history of the Judiciary of Massachusetts, 
including the Colony of New Plymouth, the Colony 
and Province of Massachusetts Bay, and the 
Commonwealth; by William T. Davis of Ply- 
mouth. This will be an interesting book for 
general readers, as well as for lawyers.

Carlyle professes to write for no other purpose than a mere elucida-

the most powerful argument in behalf of Cromwell ever written . . .

Mr. Firth is not free from the biographer's weakness : his essays 
are too uniformly eulof(istic in tone ; but his knowledge of the 
authorities is unusually accurate and comprehensive, and his careful 
notes on Cromwell bibliography would alone make his article valuable 
. . Altogether Mr. Firth has done an important piece of work in an 
excellent fashion. — A thtneeum.

standpoint of the republican party. — 'Firth. 

Though Forster sympathized thoroughly with the Revolutionary

Forster is perhaps bis most able prosecutor. — A dami.

The work is of value chiefly for two reasons. It will aid in spread- 
ing correct ideas among the rapidly growing class of readers whose 
interest in the most difficult period of our history is keen, but whom 
time will not permit to study ttie author's larger work. . That [Crom- 
well] was still more the man of hesitation than the man of decision,

magazine, beginning with December, 1899. 



The American Magazine, published by the R. 
D. Boniface Publishing Company, New York, is 
Hkely to be perplexing to the binder. It was 
started as the American Home Magazine in May, 
1898, and the first four monthly numbers were 
published under that title. In September, 1898, 
the title changed to " The American Magazine," 
Numbers 5 and 6 of Volume i bearing that title. 
It is in the second volume, however, that the per- 
plexity begins. The issue for January, Number 3, 
counting the advertising pages, ends with page 
339. The February number begins with page 
511. Page 594 is followed by page 21, and by 
referring back to the beginning of the volume it 
is seen that this article had already appeared in 
the first number of volume 2, that for November, 
1898. Then follow ten articles already printed 
in earlier numbers. The titles appear in the list 
of contents for February, but for the obvious rea- 

son just noted no page number is given. Sixty 
pages of old matter having been inserted, instead 
of returning to the old pagination, it continued 
81, 82, etc. Counting the pages, including ads., 
to the end of the number, gives the figures 694. 
No March number was issued, but the first page 
of the April number bears the figures 758. The 
last page of this number, counting ads., would 
be 890, but the first page of the May number, 
the last of volume 2, begins with page 904. The 
same skipping of pages between numbers occurs 
throughout the third volume, June-November, 
1899. Number 6 of the third volume is a double 
number in size, but contains no article that had 
not already appeared in previous numbers of this 

A letter to the pubHshers of the American 
Magazine regarding the discrepancies in paging, 
elicited the following reply : " There were no 
page numbers or volume numbers skipped. "

II. The References.* 

Compiled by Frederika Wendt6, Boston Public Library. 

Part I. 

The following list of errata in Poole and its 
supplements is compiled from reports made by 
seventeen libraries. 

The great diversity in the reference work of 
these libraries is shown by the fact that of the 
one hundred and fifty titles here given but seven- 
teen were duplicated. 

One library reports that it is unable to find a 
reference from Poole, vol. i, to "Transcendent- 
alism" made to the "Dial," vol. 2, p. 83. This 
is the Boston " Dial" published from 1841-1844, 
and for which Margaret Fuller wrote. The Chi- 
cago " Dial " was not published until 1880. 

In the records of errors were three from the 
Cumulative for 1897-1898, but it has been 
thought best to confine this Ust entirely to Poole 
and its supplements. However a supplementary 
list, in which the Cumulative will be included, 
may be published if this work of correction be 
continued, as it is to be hoped it will ; * for any 
effort in this direction is of so much assistance in 
accurate reference work.

desiring it. See page 32 of January Bulletin for a sample list. A discount of 33^ per cent 
will be given on any still unsold there mentioned. 


We offer a nearly consecutive run of bound volumes of Manchester (England) Chronicle

Bulletin of Bibliography 

Vol. 2 

JULY, 1900 

No. 4 

This Bulletin is published, primarily , as a 
means of communication between the Boston 
Book Company and its customers. A constant 
endeavor will be made, however, to include in 
each issue enough original tnatter of sufft,cient 
value to induce librarians to preserve and bind 
up the numbers. Each volume will be provided 
with a title-page and an index. 

No subscription price will be put upon the jour- 
nal, and numbers will not be sold. It will be sent 
to a selected list of libraries, customers or likely to 
become customers of the Boston Book Company. 
The circulation of the Bulletin will be increased 
in proportion to the interest shown in it, and in 
the special work of the Library Department of 
the Boston Book Company. Correspondence is 
solicited, and should be addressed. 

The Boston Book Company, 

I 5^2 Beacon St., Boston, Mass. 


The whole edition of the Bulletin of Bibliog- 
raphy (save the few numbers laid aside for future 
binding into volumes) is mailed as published to 
libraries ; regularly to our customers, occasionally 
to those not yet upon our books, in the hope that 
they may be led to give us their orders for peri- 
odical sets, our special field. We make this 
statement in response to the many inquiries 
which we constantly receive. Send us an order 
and we will mail the Bulletin to your library for 
the coming year. 


An event of more than usual interest will be 
the publication, during the present year, of an 
Abridged Poole's Index to Periodicals, com- 
prising references to a selected list of sets. Some 
such work has long been needed, especially by 
smaller libraries, which could not afford the large 
index, or, if they were fortunate enough to pos- 
sess it, could not buy many of the periodicals 
which it indexed. 

Such a publication as the Abridgment now in 
press will be indispensable to the small library, 
and, from its one alphabet and more compact 
form, will be in demand in all public and col- 
lege libraries where any reference work is done.

Ashburnham, John. Narrative of his attendance on King 
Charles L ... To which is prefixed a vindication of his 
character and conduct. . . 1830. 2 vols. 

A full narrative drawn up by him and shown to many of his con- 
temporaries — Clarendon among the rest — remained unpublished un- 
til 1830, when his descendant, Lord Ashburnham, printed it with full 
elucidation, and accompanied it with a complete, caustic commentary 
on all the passages wherein Clarendon has made mention of the writer. 
The reputation of Ashburnham is cleared, and the treachery and 
malevolence' of the noble historian are exposed with unsparing se- 
verity. — Did. Nat. Biog.

Mr. Bisset condemns Cromwell for the course he took in dissolving 
the Long Parliament, and thinks that much of the credit of the Pro- 
tector's rule was due to the Council, and especially to the wisdom of 
Blake, for whom he entertains an extravagant and almost unbounded 
admiration. — A dams.

He labors to prove that the pretended commission given by 
Charles at Oxford (11 Jan., 1644-$) to Lord Glamorgan (Lord Her-

Christie, W. C. Life of Anthony Ashley Cooper, first 
Earl of Shaftesbury, 1 62 1 -1 683. 1871. 2 vols. 
Mr. Christie has undertaken the justification of one whose brilliant 
powers no one denies, but who is commonly held to have abused them 
for the basest of purposes. . . He asks us to believe that Shaftesbury 
was not the double-dyed villain that he appears in the pages of Lord 
Macaulay and Lord Campbell. . . Mr. Christie has been more success- 
ful in clearing Shaftesbury of ereat ctimes than in giving a favour- 
able impression of his general political conduct. — Sat. Rev. 

Clarendon, E. H., Earl of. History of the Rebellion and 
Civil Wars in England. . . . Exlited by W. D. Macray. 
1888. 6 vols. 
His admirable delineations of character and general ability as a 

writer hare obtained for his History a reputation much beyond that 

deserved by its historic merits, the work having been really designed as 
an elaborate justification of the royalist party. — Gardiner and M. 
See also Rank's History, Vol. 6. 

One of the greatest defects of Clarendon is his confused and care- 
less chronology, due in part to a faithless memory, in part to the fact 
that he wrote much of his history far from the papers which would have 
enabled him to be more exact, and long after the events he was relating. 
The full extent of this inaccuracy is for the first time shown by Mr. 
Macray's annotations, but the disclosures can hardly be considered a 
disservice to Clarendon's reputation. — Eng. Hist. Rev.

Corbet, (Julian). Monk {English men of action). 1889. 

It contains a succinct and able resumtf of the eventful era of the 
Civil War, of the rule of Cromwell, and of the Restoration, in which 
Monk was the conspicuous figure ; and it sets his personality clearly 
before us in distinct relief and in true proportion. — Acadtmy. 

Douglas, (W. S.). Cromwell's Scotch campaigns, 1650- 

51. 1898. 

Mr. Douglas has been able to bring under contribution some new 
sources of information, and possesses a far more complete knowledge of 
the ground over which Cromwell's army manceuvred than can possibly 
be acquired by a mere interloper from the south. — Eng. Hist. Rtv.

from his familiar letters. . . Edited from the original

" It is full of value on account of the importance of the information 
contained in it and the pleasing manner in which that information is 
conveyed. . . . Dutv kept him true to his king, and made him a repre- 
sentative cavalier.'' H. B. W.

commanders of the army in Scotland, 1651-1660. 2 
vols. Camden Soc, N. S. 49,54. 1891-94. 
Taken altogether, these Clarke Papers bring stronglv out the con- 
servative and hesitating side of Cromwell's character, whilst they also 
bring us, as we have never been brought before, into the very heart of 
that army, in the midst of which Cromwell lived and moved, and enable 
us to trace the movements of political thought which afterwards devel- 
oped themselves in the constitutional experiments of the Common- 
wealth. — Gardiner.

the Commonwealth of England, and one of the Judges

a sincere and ardent worker for liberty and righteousness as he under- 
stood them. — Eng. Hist. Rev.

We greatly mistake if in Mr. Gardiner's " History of England " our 

times have not produced a work destined to teach many a generation 
after them the true historical antecedents and conditions of the greatest 
pohtical struggle through which our nation has passed. — Sat. Rev. 

— History of the Great Civil War, 1642-1649. 188393. 
10 vols. 

Gives the fullest, most critical, and most authoritative account of the 
whole period. — Traill. 

— History of the Commonwealth and Protectorate, 1649- 
1660. i894-(Vols. I and 2). 

Mr. Gardiner is to be specially congratulated on the appearance of 
Vol. I. of the last division of his great work. . . Only those, perhaps, 
who have had occasion to study minutely certain special aspects or 
portions of this period of history can realise how thoroughly the task is 
being performed: but with each succeeding volume his mastery of the 
period becomes more apparent, even to the general reader, in the lumi- 
nous coherency of the narrative as a whole, not less than in the elucida- 
tion of many points hitherto obscure or dubious. — T. F. Henderson. 
Eng. Hut. Rev.

complicity with the Irish Cathofics, in order to secure their assistance

Lord Protector's special commandment. 1653.

sieges made by Cromwell and his men. 

Green, J. R. History of the English people. (Vol. 3.

By far the most important general history of England that has ever 
been written. — A dams. 

— Short history of the English people. Vol. 3. Illus- 
trated edition. 1893. 

If Mr. Green's style has a fault, it is the rather unusual one of ex- 
cess of brilliancy. . . The value of his book lies above all in the power 
it shows of conceiving a period as a whole, of tracing the causes and 
results of events, and of following the great currents of thought. — 
Sat. Rev. 

Guizot, F. G. P. History of the English revolution, 1640- 


Guizot has seized with great firmness the leading characteristics of 
the period. Adams. 

— History of Oliver Cromwell and the English Common- 
wealth. Trans, by A. R. Scoble. 1854. 2 vols. 

The fairest and best account of the period for the general reader. 
The foreign politics and wars are admirably illustrated with a copious 
appendix of documents. — Green. 

— History of Richard Cromwell and the restoration of 
Charles 11. Trans, by A. R. Scoble. 1856. 2 vols. 

— Memoirs of George Monk, Duke of Albemarle. Trans, 
and edited ... by the Hon. J. Stuart Wortley. 1838. 
The volumes on Richard Cromwell and Monk are very full and 

satisfactory, and form an almost unique description of the difficulties 
and complications of the time. — Adams. 

Hallam, Henry. The constitutional history of England 
from . . . Henry VII. to the death of George II. 1850. 
2 vols. 

Its judicial spirit of fairness to all persons and parties makes it popu- 
lar with judicious minds, in spite of all its shortcomings. — Adams.

May be looked upon as a rejoinder to Ludlow. The production of

Hosmer, J. K. Life of young Sir Henry Vane, governor 
of Massachusetts Bay, and leader of the Long Parlia- 
ment. With a consideration of the English Common- 
wealth as a forecast of America. 1888. 
Students, perhaps, would rank Vane, among the men of his age and 
party, next to Cromwell, Hampden and Pym; but, to the majority of 
careless readers, his name probably hardly calls up any distinct mem- 
ory or association. . . The chapters which touch upon Vane's religious 
beliefs are very valuable. — Nation. 

Hume, David. History of England. (Vols. 6 and 7.) 


The portion relating to the reign of the Stuarts was the first written , 
and is, perhaps, the most faulty. . . Brodie, in his " Constitutional 
History," has shown the worthlessness of Hume's account of this 
period, and has made it plain that it is " a fictitious philosophy but- 
tressed by a fictitious narrative." — Adams.

Gives the views of the republican opposition. —Firth. 

To Ludlow's Mimoirs we are indebted for a good illustration of the 
Crorawellian policy in Ireland. — G. df M. 

The reader has to be constantly on his guard against the drawback 
that much of Ludlow's narrative, though that of a deeply interested 
contemporary, is secondhand only. — Eng. Hiit. Rev. 

Markham, Sir C. R. Life of the great Lord Fairfax, 
commander-in-chief of the army of the Parliament of Eng- 
land. 1870. 

A book of real and conscientious work. . . . Mr. Markham's chief 
object seems to be to challenge for Fairfax his proper place in the 
military history of the Civil War, in which he holds that [Fairfax's] 
fame has been unfairly overshadowed by the fame of Cromwell. — 
Sat. Rev. 
Marsden, J. B. History of the later Puritans. 1854. 

His volumes deserve to be studied quite as much by such as are anx- 
ious about the future, as by those who content themselves with look- 
ing continually to the past. — Edinb. Rev. 

Masson, David. Life of John Milton : narrated in con- 
nection with the political, ecclesiastical, and literary his- 
tory of his time. 1871-94. 7 vols. 

Thoroughness and impartiality are the qualities of highest value, 
perhaps, in this " Life of Milton. — Spectator. 

Although Mr. Masson may not be an elegant historian, he is what 
is of infinitely greater importance — a singularly accurate and therefore 
an altogether trustworthy one. — Sat. Rev. 

May, Thomas. Secretary to (he Parliament. History of 
the Parliament of England which began November 3rd, 
1640. 1647. Reprinted 18 12, 1854, etc. 

Fairly accurate and impartial. — Green. 

His narrative, considering the period, is remarkably free from in- 
vective and rancour, and tends to induce the belief that the statements 
it contains are on the whole faithful and impartial. — G. Sf M.

II. The References — (^Continued). 

Compiled by Frederika Wendt6, Boston Public Library. 

Part II. 

We continue the list of errata in Poole's Index 
and Supplements, and hope that in the next issue 
a still further list may appear. This is a coopera- 
tive work which should appeal to every libra- 
rian. The Carnegie Library, Pittsburgh, reports a 
curious error in the indexing of the ** Art Jour- 
nal." It appears that for the years 1877, 1878, 
1879, *^c American edition was indexed in place 
of the English, and no note made to show the dis- 
tinction ; furthermore the English volume numbers 
for those years were used as if that edition were 
the one indexed. Many of the references are 
duplicated in the English edition, but the ma- 
jority are not, and the references are so mislead- 
ing that we add to the main list a supple- 
mentary one of the corrected references to these 
three volumes, which may help to straighten out 
the confusion between the two sets.

The evolution of the new engineering peri- 
odical, " Science and Industry," published by 
the Colliery Engineer Company, Scranton, Pa,, 
is interesting, though the history of its growth 
is not easy to understand unless one has the 
complete file of the various publications of the 

In February, 1896, was started a monthly 
magazine called " Home Study." In July, 1897, 
the publishers established three other magazines, 
"Home Study for Building Trades," "Home 
Study for Electrical Workers," and " Home 
Study for Machinists and Steam Engineers." 
The original " Home Study " changed its name 
in February, 1897, at the beginning of the second 
volume, to " Home Study Magazine," and also 
changed size from quarto to octavo. The four 
magazines were then published in octavo form 
each month until January, 1899. In that month 
" Home Study for Building Trades " changed its 
name to " The Building Trades Magazine." In 
February, 1899, the other three magazines were 
consolidated into two, the original " Home 
Study" being combined with certain features 
of " Home Study for Machinists and Steam 
Engineers," and published under the title of 
" Mechanic Arts Magazine." " Home Study 
for Electrical Workers," combined with the 
steam engineering features of " Home Study 
for Machinists and Steam Engineers," was then 
issued under the title, " Steam- Electric Maga- 

In November, 1899, the three existing maga- 
zines, "Mechanic Arts Magazine," "Building 
Trades Magazine," and " Steam-Electric Maga- 
zine," were all consolidated into one, under the 
title, " Science and Industry," the first number 
under this title carrying on the volume and num- 
ber of the original " Home Study," as it had 
been carried through the various titles of " Home 
Study Magazine" and "Mechanic Arts Maga- 
zine," Vol. 4, No. 10, November, 1899. This 
volume ended with January, 1900. 

A summary may well be appended in order 
to make this more easily understood : —

(Extracts from Chapter 8 of i4 Book for All Readers, by A. R. Spofford.) 

" The librarian who desires to make the management of his library in the highest 
degree successful must give special attention to the important field of periodical litera- 
ture. . . . Whether a public library be large or small, its value to students will 
depend greatly upon the care and completeness with which its selection of periodical 
works is made and kept up from year to year. 

" Nothing is more common in all libraries . . . than imperfect . . . sets of serials. 
. . . Nothing can be more damaging than to find the sets . . . broken at the very point 
where the reference or wants of those consulting them require satisfaction, . . . and the 
librarian who is not willing or able to devote the time and means requisite to complete 
files of periodical publications under his charge is to be censured or commiserated, accord- 
ing to the causes of failure. ... In these publications . . . the collation of each part or 
number is imperative, in order to avoid imperfections which may be irreparable. . . . 

" Reviews and magazines supply the largest fund of discussion concerning such 
topics of scientific, social, literary and religious interest as occupy the public mind during 
the time in which they appear. More and more the best thought of the times gets 
reflected in the pages of this portion of the periodical press. No investigator in any de- 
partment can afford to overlook the rich stores contributed to thought in reviews and 
magazines. These articles are commonly more condensed and full of matter than the 
average books of the period. . . . 

" The experience of librarians shows that the most sought-for and the most useful 
contributions to any subject are frequently found, not in the books written upon it, but in 
the files of current periodicals, or in those of former years. 

..." The publication of Poole's Indexes to Periodical Literature has put the whole 
reading community on the quest for information to be found only (in condensed form, or 
in the latest treatment,) in these volumes of the periodical press. If a new library is to be 
formed, having no sets of periodicals on which to build, effort should be made to secure 
full sets from the beginning of as many of the prominent magazines and reviews, Ameri- 
can and foreign, as the funds will permit. . . . But vigilant care must be exercised to 
secure perfect sets, as numbers are often mutilated, or deficient in some pages or illustra- 
tions. This object can only be secured by collation of every volume, page by page, with 
due attention to the list of illustrations, if any are published. 

" Poole's Index to Periodical Literature ... is literally invaluable and indispensable 
as an aid to research." 

The Boston Book Company makes a specialty of supplying periodicals to Li- 
braries, collated and perfect. It also will be glad to help librarians fill gaps in 
their sets. The largest stock in America and twelve years' experience in this diffi- 
cult field are at your disposal if you write us.

Bulletin of Bibliography 

Vol. 2 

OCTOBER, 1900 

No. 5 

TTiis Bulletin is published, primarily, as a 
means of communication between the Boston 
Book Company and its customers. A constant 
endeavor will be made, however, to include in 
each issue enough original matter of sufficient 
value to induce librarians to preserve and bind 
up the numbers. Each volume will be provided 
with a title-page and an index. 

No subscription price will be put upon the jour- 
nal, and numbers will not be sold. It will be sent 
to a selected list of libraries, customers or likely to 
become customers of the Boston Book Company. 
The circulation of the Bulletin will be increased 
in proportion to the interest shown in it, and in 
the special work of the Library Department of 
the Boston Book Company. Correspondence is 
solicited, and should be addressed. 

The Boston Book Company, 

ISY^ Beacon St., Boston, Mass. 


We desire, as the Fall business season opens, 
to say a few words about the rather special field 
covered by the Library Department of the Boston 
Book Company. We supply periodicals — using 
the term in its broadest sense — in sets, stretches 
and volumes. It is our desire to complete for 
libraries their periodical literature, supplying 
whole or partial sets, and guaranteeing perfection 
by careful expert collation. We have for the past 
eleven years done this with increasing success 
and feel that now our work cannot, in this special 
field, be approached by any firm that does not 
devote its entire time to serials. We handle not 
only American, but English and Continental sets 
as well. 

This is the time of year when the expenditures 
for the next ten months are planned. Let this 
come to you as a reminder that no library year 
is complete without some set of periodicals com- 
pleted, without some new set added to your pres- 
ent collection. The uniform development of 
a library demands this. We have nearly two-hun- 
dred and sixty complete sets in stock, and over 
ninety-thousand volumes, all periodicals, for you 
to choose from. \ 


Now that the gift-book is again upon us in 
force, it is interesting to note who provides it. 
For ten months out of the twelve we hear little 
or nothing of writers for the young, but in the 
eleventh and twelfth they enjoy something ap- 
proaching a monopoly. As a rule they are in- 
dustry incarnate. Mr. George A. Henty produces 
half-a-dozen boys' books a year ; Mr. George M. 
Fenn is, if possible, more prolific still ; Mr. David 
Ker appears smilingly at the Christmas season 
bringing his gifts of three or four rousing tales ; 
and there are other writers, male and female, 
who may fairly be described as prodigies of 
diligence. " Seest thou a man diligent in busi- 
ness," says the Book of books, " he shall stand 
before kings." Such honor ought surely to be 
the portion of those who year by year provide so 
abundantly for the amusement and edification of 
boys and girls. From the point of view of two 
generations of school-boys, Jules Verne is the 
king of living story-tellers. As a writer in Cham- 
bers's yournal well says, he has exploited the 
heavens and the earth for the material for his 
wonderful romances. " W. H. G. Kingston has 
also," continues the contributor to Chambers's, 
" filled a large place in the modern boys' library, 
and so has David Ker, who seems familiar with 
almost every available region of the world. 
Ascott R. Hope, clever and industrious as he 
has been, has never quite come to his own ; 
neither has Andrew Home, Reginald Horsley, 
nor D. Lawson Johnstone, author of * The Rebel 
Commodore ' and other works. Max Pember- 
ton, F. Wishaw, Bloundelle-Burton, Hugh St. 
Leger, and Frankfort Moore have all plenty of 
readers. Samuel Smiles is not a boys' writer in 
the ordinary sense ; but there is enough back- 
bone in his books to set up the present genera- 
tion in the path of perseverance and well-doing. 
All the classics have been retold and simplified. 
Rose Selfe has given us Dante's Purgatory in 
' How Dante Climbed the Mountain ' ; Mr. 
Church has retold the 'Iliad,' 'Odyssey,' and 
Greek tragedies; Plutarch, the King Arthur 
Legends, and Northern Sagas have not escaped ; 


The Boston Book Company's 

Vol. 2 No. 5 

nor Shakespeare, as witness Lamb's ' Tales ' ; 
and we have also a selection called ' Tennyson 
for the Young.' But the story is still the thing, 
and romance and modem narrative gain the ear 
both of youth and old age. Sir Walter Besant, 
for instance, finds ' The Three Musketeers ' as 
delightful now as when he sat in a corner, breath- 
less, panting, and followed all a livelong holiday 
'the fortunes of the immortal three who were 
four.' He asks of a story one thing — ' Seize 
me, and hold me with a grip of steel. Make me 
deaf and blind to all the world so long as I read 
in these enchanted pages. Carry me whither 
thou wilt. Play on me ; do with me what thou 
wilt, at thine own sweet will.' Besant also finds 
that Mark Twain's * Huckleberry Finn ' has the 
distinctive character of a good story in that it 
pleases or rather seizes every period of life, and 
appeals to all ages and every age. It has no 
motive, no moral, and no plot, and yet the boy 
of twelve reads with delight as well as the older 
reader. But we have now only left ourselves 
space for a few particulars about the more mod- 
em story-tellers for young folks." 

The writer in Chambers's touches on the works 
of Mr. Henty, Mr. G, M. Fenn, R. L. Stevenson, 
" Lewis Carroll," and Edward Lear. Mr. Henty, 
we leara, was bom in 1832, but "did not grad- 
uate at Cambridge." His alma mater is " the 
rough and tumble school of experience into which 
he plunged when engaged in the Purveyors' De- 
partment in the Crimea. Later, as special cor- 
respondent of the Standard, he saw life in many 
aspects during the Austro- Italian and Franco- 
German wars; he was in the Abyssinian and 
Ashanti expeditions, and has written books about 
both campaigns. He was also with Garibaldi in 

the Tyrol. Probably as part justification of his 
own success as a novelist, as well as in his capac- 
ity of writer for the young, he has pointed out 
that scarcely one of the prominent novelists of 
the day is a university man, and women who 
know nothing of the classics write as good fiction 
as men. His experience while editing a short- 
lived boys' paper called the Union yack has 
also led him to remark upon the lack of talent in 
composition conspicuous in the efforts of young 
people. Henty himself early excelled in compo- 
sition, and wrote his first novel at twenty. He 
considered it very bad, and it was never pub- 
lished. He began to write for young people in 
this way : he used always to have his children 
with him for an hour after dinner, and would 
then tell them stories. These stories were con- 
tinuous, and often lasted for weeks. It struck 
him one day that if his own young folks liked 
these tales, a larger public outside might also like 
them. This led him to write and then read one 
of his own stories, and when it was of the proper 
length he offered it to a publisher. It was 
promptly accepted, and Christmas would now 
hardly look like Christmas without one or two 
stories from his versatile pen." 

Mr. Fenn has in his time been schoolmaster, 
private tutor, and journalist, and is of opinion 
that a "talent for writing is inborn." Has anyone 
ever doubted the fact ? Of writers for girls 
special mention is made of Mrs. Molesworth and 
Mrs. L. T. Meade. The article is timely and 
interesting, and will be particularly relished at a 
time when the beneficent are thinking over the 
books that are presently to be bought for their 
young friends.

Bulletin of Bibliography. 



A Bibliography. 

By George Watson Cole. 

The following list is a continuation of that 
which has already appeared in this periodical 
(vol. I, pp 52-54 ; 74-76), and like that contains 
only the titles of such articles as have passed 
under the compiler's eye. Especial effort has 
been made to render this supplementary list as 
complete as possible in articles dealing with Ber- 
muda from a scientific standpoint. In order to 
do this, references are made to several works 
which are not periodicals, most of the articles, 
however, are by authors who have also contrib- 
uted to the periodical literature of Bermuda. 

In looking over this list, the reader will doubt- 
less be struck by the frequent repetition of the 
names of John Matthew Jones, Sir John Henry 
Lefroy, and George Brown Goode. The first 
was the author of " The Naturalist in Bermuda," 
a pioneer work in its line, which has not inappro- 
priately been compared with Gilbert White's 
" Natural History of Selborne. The Bermuda con- 
tributions of this "worthy naturalist" on various 
scientific subjects, some eighteen or twenty in 
number, cover the period from 1858- 1884. Sir 
John Henry Lefroy, " sometime Governor of the 
Bermudas" (1871-77), merits the lasting grati- 
tude not only of Bermudians but of every student 
of history for the very able manner in which he 
compiled and edited the colonial records of 
those islands. His contributions to the literature 
of Bermuda cover a variety of subjects dating 
from 1872-1884. George Brown Goode's writ- 
ings upon the ichthyology of Bermuda began in 
1874 and continued to 1884. In this latter year, 
these three gentlemen were instrumental in bring- 
ing out Bulletin No. 25 of the United States 
National Museum, entitled " Contributions to the 
National History of the Bermudas." Volume 
one, only, of this work was published. With this 
work, in which their names were jointly associated, 
ended their contributions relating to those islands. 
But others have entered the field of research and 
special monographs are appearing every year in 
increasing numbers and value. 

During the spring of 1873 the "Challenger" 
Expedition visited Bermuda spending nearly a 
month in and about the islands. In the final re- 
ports of that Expedition are some eighty mono- 
graphs upon zoology, in nearly one-half of which 
may be found descriptions of the various species 
collected at or near Bermuda. References to 
these reports have been included in this list. 

The student of the colonial history of Bermuda, 
or of its trade and commerce should not forget 
to consult the " Parliamentary Papers " of Great 
Britain. They are rich in original matter on 
these subjects. Only a few references to some 
of the most important of these papers are given 
in the present list. 

The compiler requests that anyone discovering 
omissions or errors will do him the favor to 
call his attention to the same in order that a 
future edition, which is in contemplation, may be 
made as full and as free from errors as possible.

American and English Editions. 

In November 1899 Mr. Munsey began the pub- 
lication of an English edition of Munsey's Maga- 
zine. A word regarding the differences and 
similarities of the two editions would seem of use 
that libraries may not be misled in completing 
their files. 

The English edition is printed and bound in 
New York and shipped to London. It is made 
up, according to a letter received from its pub- 
lisher," from the best in all the publications which 
Mr. Munsey is publishing [Puritan, Junior Mun- 
sey, Argosy], the best in all, that is, that is suited 
to an English audience." "The articles in the 
American Munsey not exactly suited to the Eng- 
lish public are omitted and the places filled by 
selections from the Puritan and Junior Munsey." 
We have selected at random for comparison the 
April, 1900, numbers of "1 he Munsey," New York 
and London editions. 

The covers are the same except that on one is 
" price sixpence," the other " ten cents." Both 
are vol. 23, no. i, and carry the same illustration. 
Inside we find no advertisements at all in the 
English copy. Of text the American issue has 
pages, 1-144 ; the English, pages 1-160. The 
frontispiece of the English copy occurs on page 
6 of the American number. The first article is 
from the Puritan for April, beginning there at 
page 26. 

The second English article is in the American 
Munsey at page 81, not 13. It seems to have 

been reset. The pictures are in different order 
and little changes are made to make the text in- 
telligible to the Englishmen. For example on 
page 14 we find " blue-coated policeman," where 
the article in the home edition reads simply 
" bluecoat." 

Again, whole paragraphs are omitted or written 
over, and at times illustrations are left out. In 
continued articles illustrations are used in one 
installment which originally appeared in another. 
In short, the number is quite different from its 
American namesake, yet no library would wish to 
take the English edition if it were already a sub- 
scriber to the American. 

In passing we may note that a portrait, called 
Captain Kaempff, on page 88 of the English 
edition for April, 1900, appears in the New 
York issue of May, 1895, ^s Captain Barends. 
The fact that Poole's Index includes the New 
York issue should deter even English libraries 
from subscribing to the English edition, just as 
in the case of the Strand and Pearson's Maga- 
zine our American libraries should insist on 
original editions only. 

It is much to be regretted that the same title 
and volume numbering should be kept when, in 
reaUty, two different magazines are issued. In 
this connection, it is only fair to mention the 
fact that the publishers of the English Illustrated 
Magazine have for their American edition changed 
the name to New Illustrated Magazine.

This book by W : T. Davis contains much of historic value, and is interesting as well as 
valuable. There are in it many sketches and stories of eminent lawyers. A full index of Names 
renders it especially valuable for historical and biographical reference. Public and college libraries 
should have it.

What it Includes ; its Advantages to Libraries. 

It is not now expected that the ABRIDGED POOLE will be published until May r, 
1901. The price, though not yet announced, will hardly be over $10.00, and may be less 
if the advance orders justify it. Every library needs this volume. Let US book your 
order now for an early copy. 

The unexpected delay in publication will really be an advantage to libraries, since 
more time will be given for the completing of the broken files of the sets to be indexed. 
The publication will undoubtedly cause a rise in price on the sets indexed, as all are 
largely " out-of-print," and must be gotten together by long and persistent search. We 
have anticipated this demand, and laid in a good stock of the periodicals to be indexed in 
the Abridgment, and can on request make you favorable quotations upon nearly all. 
We will send you a check-list of the thirty-seven serials to be indexed if you desire us to 
estimate for you on any. 

Scope and Use. 

For the information of those who have not seen our former circulars, we say here that 
Poole's Index Abridgment covers all the subjects treated in the thirty-seven sets most com- 
monly in our smaller American libraries. It covers these sets from first publication to the end 
of 1899, and in one alphabet, in one volume. It will admirably meet the needs of small 
and growing libraries, where the prospect of having all the " Poole " periodicals is very poor. 
It will cover what they have, or can readily get; it will answer all ordinary reference ques- 

For large public, and college libraries its use will be constant on account of the ease 
of reference (one place to look instead of seven), and because the ABRIDGMENT will 
answer all ordinary demands. 

Order now, and send to us for a check-list of sets to be included in 




C. C. SOULE, President, 

J5^ Beacon Street, Boston.

to be indexed in the Abridged Poole before prices rise.

Bulletin of Bibliography 

JANUARY, 1 90 1 

No. 6 

This Bulletin is published^ primarily, as a 
means of communication between the Boston 
Book Company and its customers. A constant 
endeavor will be made, however, to include in 
each issue enough original matter of sufficient 
value to induce librarians to preserve and bind 
up the numbers. Each volume will be provided 
with a title-page and an index. 

No subscription price will be put upon the jour- 
nal, and numbers will not be sold. It will be sent 
to a selected list of libraries, customers or likely to 
become customers of the Boston Book Company. 
The circulation of the Bulletin will be increased 
in proportion to the interest shown in it, and in 
the special work of the Library Department of 
the Boston Book Company. Correspondence is 
solicited, and should be addressed.

ijy^ Beacon St., Boston, Mass. 


At the threshold of a new century, we pause to 
wish all our readers happiness and prosperity. 
Thanking our many library friends for past pat- 
ronage, we promise to continue to use our best 
efforts to satisfy the most exacting, and to make 
more than ever synonymous the phrases "Boston 
Book Company" and "Collected and perfected 


The Bulletin of BiBLiocRAPHy begins the 
twentieth century with the assurance that its 
quarterly visits have been welcome and its con- 
tents useful in many libraries. Contributions of 
a bibliographical nature, suitable for its pages 
will be gratefully received. Its circulation is 
confined to libraries, its mission is primarily to 
advertise the business of the Boston Book Com- 
pany. An order now and then from its pages 
will ensure its receipt regularly, and render its 
continuance certain. 

The most important events in the bibliography 
of serials this year will be the publication of an 
Abridged Poole's Index, and an Index to theo- 
logical serial literature. Is your library prepared 
to use these books to the best advantage — that 
is, have you the sets that will be indexed by them ?

Bulletin of Bibliography 

Vol. 2 

APRIL, 1901 

No. 7 

This Bulletin is published, primarily, as a 
means of communication between the Boston 
Book Company and its customers. A constant 
endeavor will be made, however, to include in 
each issue enough original matter of sufficient 
value to induce librarians to preserve and bind 
up the numbers. Each volume will be provided 
with a title-page and an index. 

No subscription price will be put upon the jour- 
nal, and numbers will not be sold. It will be sent 
to a selected list of libraries, customers or likely to 
become customers of the Boston Book Company. 
The circulation of the Bulletin will be increased 
in proportion to the interest shown in it, and in 
the special work of the Library Department of 
the Boston Book Company. Correspondence is 
solicited, and should be addressed. 

The Boston Book Company, 

15% Beacon St., Boston, Mass. 






There are four matters of importance to bring 
to the attention of our readers at this time. 

First. The Abridged Poole's Index will be 
issued soon, and before we send out another 
number of the Bulletin of Bibuography. Li- 
brarians should see that we have their orders for 
this volume at once. Gaps in the sets indexed 
should be filled now, for prices will go up when 
the volume is issued, as the demand will be much 
increased. See opposite page. 

Second. This is our annual " stock-taking 
time," and we desire to reduce stock as much as 
possible. To do this we each year make prac- 
tically cost prices on many sets. See advertising 
pages in this number for a selection of many such 

Third. The Boston Book Company has be- 
come United States agent for the University of 
Toronto Studies, and henceforth all United States 
orders for these should be sent to 1 5 ^ Beacon 
Street, Boston. See back cover of this number 
for present list. 

Fourth. The " History of the Judiciary of 
Massachusetts " is a historical reference book that 
all public library's will find of value. An extended 
notice will be found on page 112.

References to Selections from the "Edinburgh Review," compared with the Articles as 

' Originally Issued. 

By Frederika Wendt^, of the Boston Public Library. 

Poole, in the first volume, third edition, 1882; indexes 
" Selections from Edinburgh review." 6 volumes, 
Paris. As a rule the smaller libraries do not possess 
this file, and so some valuable reference matter must 
sometimes be lost for in many instances there is no 
way of telling from which volume of the " Edinburgh 
review," the articles in the " Selections " have been 

To overcome this difficulty the following list of the 
blind references has been compiled.

A Book for Libraries, and HIstoHoal Students, 

History of the Judiciary of Massachusetts, including^ the Plymouth and Massachusetts 
G)Ionies, the Province of Massachusetts Bay, and the G)mmonweaIth, by William T. 
Davis, of Plymouth ; cloth, $3.00, net. 

The book contains an historical account of the rise and development of the judicial system of 
the State, from its first settlement to the present time, with brief biographical sketches of the 
judges and principal court officers. The number of these sketches is indicated by the fact that 
the Index of Names contains two thousand entries. These sketches, alone, give to the work a 
permanent biographical value. 

The Appendices contain the Patents and Charters of the Colonies and Province, to show the 
foundation upon which our judicial system was built. Published by

Bulletin of Bibliography 

JULY. 1 901 

No. 8 

This Bulletin is published, primarily, as a 
means of communication between the Boston 
Book Company and its customers. A constant 
endeavor will be made, however, to include in 
each issue enough original matter of sufficient 
value to induce librarians to preserve and bind 
up the numbers. Each volume will be provided 
with a title-page and an index. 

No subscription price will be put upon the jour- 
nal, and numbers will not be sold. It will be sent 
to a selected list of libraries, customers or likely to 
become customers of the Boston Book Company. 
The circulation of the Bulletin will be increased 
in proportion to the interest shown in it, and in 
the special work of the Library Department of 
the Boston Book Company. Correspondence is 
solicited, and should be addressed. 

The Boston Book Company, 

isYt, Beacon St., Boston, Mass. 



The Boston Book Company after more than 
twelve years in Freeman Place Chapel, is about 
to move to a place better adapted to its growing 
business needs. 

Our periodical stock is the largest in the 
country, probably as large as all other dealers' 
collections of this nature combined. The ex- 
pense of moving though heavy, will, we think, be 
justified by the increased facilities we shall se- 
cure for handling the business. Still if we can 
sell off much stock to our library customers 
during July at a substantial reduction from usual 
prices it will save much expense to us, and, at the 
same time, please them. 

Therefore, it will pay all to look over our lists 
in this number carefully and to write us at once 
about periodical sets needed which are or are not 
here noted. 


The publication date of " Poole's Index 
Abridged," though delayed, will probably be some- 
time early in July. The volume will be larger 
than one of the five year supplements to Poole. 
The price has been fixed by the publishers at 
j! 1 2.00. Order a copy now through The Boston 
Book Company.

Best Editions of Robert Browning 

Compiled by Elvira Lucile Bascom. 

One of the practical difficulties that the librarian meets in the selection of books is the difficulty 
of determining appropriate editions. Even librarians who are skilled in weighing the merits of com- 
peting editions are unable to do so, because they are at a distance from book centers. 

I am making an attempt to relieve this difficulty to a certain degree by compiling a series cov- 
ering the best editions of about fifty standard authors. The first of the series treats of Ralph Waldo 
Emerson, and may be found in the twelfth annual report of the New York State Library School. 
The following Browning list is the second of the series. I have been promised the cooperation of 
able librarians in covering other authors. Criticisms of the various lists as they appear will be gladly 
received. The selection of editions in the Standard Library of the Providence Public Library, issued 
in pamphlet form, is of great service to librarians. The advantage of the projected series lies in the 
choice of editions which it offers, and in the fact that all included are in print.

Correspondence with prominent art firms in this country and England leads to the belief that no reproductions of the 
busts of Browning have been made. There are at least three busts in existence, those by Robert Barrett Browning, 
William Wetmore Story and Henrietta Montalba.

JUST PUBLISHED. A Book that every Library in the United States should have. 

The Early Trading Companies of New France. 

A Contribntion to the History of Commerce and Discovery in North America. 

By H. p. BIGGAR, B. Litt. (Oxon.). 
Half morocco. Price, $4.00 net. 310 pp. 

This work is the result of many years' labor among the manuscript collections of 
Europe that contain records of the earliest voyages to America. It was originally sub- 
mitted as a thesis for the author's research degree in the University of Oxford. Subse- 
quently it was revised and enlarged, and is now a complete history of early French colonizing 
effort in America based upon an examination of all the available material, manuscript and 
otherwise. In both France and Spain the author has discovered much that is new. He 
devotes special attention to the French voyages to the new world of the sixteenth century. 
The fur trade and the fisheries are discussed very fully, as is also the history of the earliest 
French settlements in North America. The history ends with the organization of the great 
Company of One Hundred Associates. 

A special feature of the volume is the Appendix, containing an enumeration and 
criticism of sources for the period. These are arranged in three classes: (i) Official 
documents ; (2) Narrative sources ; (3) Anonymous pamphlets. The appendix of sources 
occupies more than one-third of the whole volume. 

Only 600 copies of this work have been printed, of which not more than 550 are for sale. 
Orders should be sent to 

THE BOSTON BOOK CO., Freeman Place Chapel, Boston.

Bulletin of Bibliography 

Vol. 2 

OCTOBER, 1901 

No. 9 

TTiis Bulletin is published, primarily, as a 
means of communication between The Boston 
Book Company and its customers. A constant 
endeavor will be made, however, to include in 
each issue enough original matter of sufficient 
value to induce librarians to preserve and bind 
up the numbers. Each volume will be provided 
with a title-page and an index. 

No subscription price will be put upon the jour- 
nal, and numbers will not be sold. It will be sent 
to a selected list of libraries, custotners or likely to 
become customers of The Boston Book Company. 
The circulation of the Bulletin will be increased 
in proportion to the interest shown in it, and in 
the special work of the Library Department of 
The Boston Book Company. Correspondence is 
solicited, and should be addressed.

83-gi Francis St., Back Bay, Boston, Mass. 


We are open for business in our new and larger 
quarters, 83 to 91 Francis Street, Back Bay, 
Boston. Moving a stock so large as ours has 
been a long undertaking, and we hope our many 
friends will pardon any delays that have oc- 
curred during the summer in the filling of their 

Librarians coming to Boston are cordially in- 
vited to visit our new store, and should take a 
Brookline Huntington Avenue electric car to the 
corner of Francis Street. 

Our telephone is " Brookline 424 " for those 
who cannot come out ; we have telephone con- 
nection with our Law Department's retail office in 
Barristers' Hall, 15 Pemberton Square, and shall 
be glad to meet there by appointment our cus- 

Now is the time to think of filling up reference 
sets of periodicals. May we not hear from all 
our readers this Fall?

Who euer sailes neere to Bermuda coast, 

Goes hard aboord the monarchy of Feare 
Where all desires — but life's desire — are lost : 
For wealth and fame put off their glories there. 

Yet this ile poyson-like, by mischiefe knowne, 
Weanes not Desire from her sweet nurse, the sea ; 
But vnseene showes vs where our hopes be sowne, 
For, who will seeks the wealthe of westeme sunne.

Since the statement regarding Our Day in 
Bulletin of Bibliography for July, 1899, we 
have noted these facts : 

January, 1899, number came, but in vain we 
waited for the February number. In due course 
of time the March number appeared, then fol- 
lowed in slow succession the May, July and Sep- 
tember numbers calling themselves vol. 18. nos. 
i> 3> 5» 6, 9. Evidently Our Day felt at this 
juncture it needed an additional month's rest, as 
it did not appear again until December, which 
number called itself vol. 18 no. 12. After repeat- 
ed inquiries we were calmly told the missing num- 
bers were never published, although we had paid 
for the full year with the understanding that it 

was to be a monthly. The pagination was con- 
tinuous throughout the year. 

Our Day can easily apply the quotation : 

" Variety is the spice of life ; 
That gives it all its flavor." 

It evidently has thought better of its hop, skip 
and jump fashion of doing things, for it struts 
serenely through the year 1900, coming monthly. 

The January number for 1901 is about twice 
the regxilar size, evidently despising the day of 
small things, and since then the periodical has 
come regularly in its larger size.

The Early Trading Companies of New France. 

A Contribution to the History of Commerce and Discovery in North America. 

By H. p. BIGGAR, B. Litt. (Oxon.). 
Halt morocco. Price, $4.00 net. 310 pp. 

This work is the result of many years' labor among the manuscript collections of 
Europe that contain records of the earliest voyages to America. It was originally sub- 
mitted as a thesis for the author's research degree in the University of Oxford. Subse- 
quently it was revised and enlarged, and is now a complete history of early French colonizing 
effort in America based upon an examination of all the available material, manuscript and 
otherwise. In both France and Spain the author has discovered much that is new. He 
devotes special attention to the French voyages to the new world of the sixteenth century. 
The fur trade and the fisheries are discussed very fully, as is also the history of the earliest 
French settlements in North America. The history ends with the organization of the great 
Company of One Hundred Associates. 

A special feature of the volume is the Appendix, containing an enumeration and 
criticism of sources for the period. These are arranged in three classes: (i) Official 
documents ; (2) Narrative sources ; (3) Anonymous pamphlets. The appendix of sources 
occupies more than one-third of the whole volume. 

Only 600 copies of this work have been printed. 

Orders should be sent to the United States Agents,

Bulletin of Bibliography 

Vol. 2 

JANUARY, 1902 

No. 10 

This Bulletin is published, primarily, as a 
means of communication between The Boston 
Book Company and its customers. A constant 
endeavor will be made, however, to include in 
each issue enough original matter of sufficient 
value to induce librarians to preserve and bind 
up the numbers. Each volume will be provided 
with a title-page and an index. 

No subscription price will be put upon the jour- 
nal, and numbers will not be sold. It will be sent 
to a selected list of libraries, customers or likely to 
become customers of The Boston Book Company. 
The circulation of the Bulletin will be increased 
in proportion to the interest shown in it, and in 
the special work of the Library Department of 
The Boston Book Company. Correspondence is 
solicited, and should be addressed.

Volume i-wo of the Bulletin of Bibuography 
is completed with this issue, and the title and 
index is herein included as a part of the number, 
yet easily removable without injury to itself or 
the number. Ten quarterly numbers constitute 
the volume. 


It is now five years since we began the publi- 
cation of the Bulletin of Bibliography, and we 
take this opportunity of publicly thanking our 
many library friends for the manner in which 
they have received our publication. We especi- 
ally wish to thank those whose contributions have 
made it possible to keep the Bulletin up to the 
standard originally set for it. Nor can we forget 
our gratitude to those who by ordering freely 
from our advertising pages have made possible 
the quarterly issue of the Bulletin of Bibliog- 
raphy during so long a period. 

We intend to continue the publication, and ask 
your cooperation to the extent of a careful exam- 
ination of the advertising pages when the numbers 
arrive, and before they are filed. 

We try to mail the numbers so that the whole 
United States will have an equal chance to secure 
desired items, and we have now adopted the plan 

of putting on the cover page of every number the 
day of issue, that all may be sure their numbers 
have not been unduly delayed. 

We are sure that we can be of much service in 
the field of Periodicals to all libraries, and were 
not New Year's resolutions so soon broken, we 
would venture to suggest that you make one to 
write us whenever any point about a magazine 
comes up for answer, — peculiar paging, extra 
plates, supplements, titles, price or scarcity, any- 
thing in short which relates to the publications. 
We have a large experience, nearly fifteen years, 
in this single field and can doubtless help you. 
While we desire your orders, and know we can do 
better by you in price and condition than any one 
else, we will gladly give you the benefit of our 
bibliographic records at any time. 


We send out each quarter practically the en- 
tire edition of the Bulletin of Bibliography. 
Our regular customers get it regularly, others oc- 
casionally, the mailing list being varied from 
time to time. If you desire it regularly, please 
write us and send a small order. 

We cannot supply back numbers to fill broken 
sets, but have a few full sets which we have bound 
in a neat olive buckram and placed on sale. 

The two volumes may be had for $1.50 each, 
cases for binding can be supplied at 50 cents each. 


The most notable long contribution to the 
present volume is the Bibliography of Bermuda. 
The many errors corrected in Poole's Index 
should make this volume of much value to all 
libraries doing reference work. 

Our series of Best Editions of Standard 
Authors, prepared under the auspices of Mrs. 
Fairchild of the State Library at Albany, will be 
found very useful, and we hope to continue the 
series in volume three. 

The need of a correspondence course in Li- 
brary Science has been filled by the splendid 
compilation in our present issue by the Pratt 
Institute Free Library. We have issued this 
separately in our Bulletin of Bibliography 
Pamphlets series, and offer it for 10 cents in 
that form.

largely West Indian in their character, the student of the

Note. — In 1570, when retumhig to Europe, Hortop pasted 
near the Bermudas and saw for tne first time the protoype of 
the great American sea-serpent. His description, which 
occurs at p. 240, is as follows : — 

"When we came in the height of Bermuda, we discouered a 
monster in the sea, who shcwd himsclfe three times vnto vs 
from the middle vpwards, in which parts hee was proportioned 
like a man, of the complection of a Mulato, or tawny Indian. 
The Generall did commaund one of his clearks to put it in

Note. — Lefroy was of the opinion that this work was written 
by Captain John Smith. It is entered under " Smith " in the 
British Museum Catalogue with this note : "Attributed in 
the introduction to John Smith, but written by Captain N. 
Butler." Butler was one of the early governors of Bermuda, 
under the Bermuda Company, and from his knowledge of the 
islands was much better qualified to write concerning them 
than Captain Smith who never visited them. In 1802 " Mr. 
Edward Scott, keeper of MSS. in the Museum, while cata- 
loguing the Sloane collection, came upon a MS. in the same 
handwriting as 750 [the above " Historye of the Bermudaes "], 
signed by Nathaniel Butler. This MS. [is] numbered 758 . . . 
A comparison of the two MSS. establishes the fact of the 
identity of the handwriting." — Atkenceum, Dec. 24, 1892, p.

daughter, H. J. Hurdis. London, 1897. 8°. vi. -\- 
[ii.] -}- 408 pp. 

Note. — Mr. Hurdis lived in Bermuda from October, 1840 to 
May, 1855. The "notes" forming this volume were taken, 
mainly, from September, 1846 to the time he left the islands. 
They were made use of by him in J. M. Jones's Naturalist in 
Bermuda (London, 1859), p. 56-97. Captain Savile G. Reid 
had the use of the manuscript in compiling his Birds 0/ Ber- 
muda (Washington, 1 884), which appeared as Part 4 in Bulletin 
No. 2j (p. 163-279), of the U. S. Natiomal Museum. This 
work IS especially valuable to the student of Bermuda orni- 
thology as It contains much of the original information made 
use of in all later works relating to the birds of these islands. 
" The work is in journal form, and is written somewhat after 
the style of White's Selborne ; and if it lacks the charm of 
that classic, this can hardly be considered a fault on the part 
of the author." — Nature, vol. 55, p. 604. He enumerates in 
all 178 species, p. 303-314. He also enumerates about 130 
species of the "Trees, shrubs, and plants of Bermuda," p. 
364-372. While these notes relate largely to birds — over 300 
pages of his book being taken up with his field-notes on this 
subject, — there is much information upon a variety of other 
subjects, as Butterflies and Moths, p. 314-324; Insecta, 0.324- 
330; Mammalia, p. 330-339; Whales, p. 339-341; Fishes,

Jones, John Matthew. Introduction, p. ix.-xxiii. 

Note.— Gives an account of Bermuda and describes its various 
localities. " Mr. Jones has collected in Bermuda for several 
winters, between 1859 and 1876, and has become the standard 
authority in matters relating to the natural history of the 
islands." — Pre/ace, p. vi. 

Rice, Prof. WilUam North. The Geology of Bermuda. 
Part I. p. 1-32. 5 plates. 

Note. — " The result of a careful reconnaissance during a six 
weeks' visit in the spring of 1877." — Pre/ace, p. vi. The 
author discusses the subject under the following headings : — 
History and literature of the subject ; Physical geography of 
Bermuda; Is Bermuda an atoll? The coral limestone and 
its varieties ; Movements of elevation and subsidence ; Ha» 
Bermuda subsided within historic times? Erosion; The 
" Red earth " ; Phenomena resulting from the unequal hard- 
ening of the limestone ; Non-calcareous rocks and minerals ; 
Fossils. The author enumerates about sixteen different 
minerals (p. 20-30) found by various observers in the " titan- 
iferous sands " and other sources, at various localities along 
the shore. He also gives, on p. 31-32, a list of twenty-two 
fossils which have been found in the beach-rock in several

as follows : — native, 150 ; naturalized, 166 ; mtroduced, 629 — 
of the latter 215 species are included which are "of horticul- 
tural but not of botanical interest, . . . [and which are] in- 
serted . . . tocompletetheviewof the vegetation of Bermuda, 
as related to climate, and as it presents itself to the visitor." 
p. 43. Of this work Hemsley says: "Unfortunately the 
editing leaves much to be desired, the same plant, in several 
instances, being repeated under different synonyms ; others, 
by some slip, appear under false generic names, and some are 
enumerated under wrong natural orders." — Challenger

Reid, Captain Savile^G. The Birds of Bermuda. Part 
IV. p. 163-279. 

Note. — The author who was in Bermuda from March 30, 1874 
to June 3, 1875, describes 186 species. " No species has as 
yet been discovered peculiar to the islands." — p. 167. 
" That fresh species will from time to time be added to the 
present list is more than probable ; in fact it is possible that 
the whole migratory avi-fauna of North America may even- 
tually be recorded a-s Bermudian. When such diminutive 
flyers as the Ruby-throated Humming-bird, Trochilus colu- 
bris, and the Blue Yellow-backed Warbler, Parula atneri- 
cana, can find their way across 600 miles of water in safety, 
where is the line to be drawn?" — p. 166-167. This essay 
" is the final result of the labors of Jones, Hurdis, Wedder- 
burn, and others. . . . Much of the completeness of this list is 
due to the labors of . . . Mr. John T. Bartram, of Stock's 
Point, whose little museum is full of interesting material."

" The foundation of this list is one that was kindly made for 
Governor Lefroy by the late Mr. Perot in 1871 of the West 
Indian and other tromcal plants growing in his own Garden, 
or known to him. This was much extended by the Hon. 
J. H. Darrell. It has subsequently been added to and cor- 
rected by Mr. Middleton, Gardener at Mount Langton [the 
Governor's residence], and by enquiries in various quarters in- 
cluding a comparison with the plants enumerated by Mr. J. M. 
Jones, in The Bermuda Naturalist (1859) so that it is hoped 
that . . . nothing very material is omitted." — lea/i.
