A Classified Catalogue of School, College, Classical, Technical, and General Educational Works
Excerpt from A Classified Catalogue of School, College, Classical, Technical, and General Educational Works: In Use in the United Kingdom and Its Dependencies in 1876The present catalogue cannot be better. Described than in the words of the preface to the first edition. It is simply a classified list of eight or nine thousand Educational books now in use in this country, issued by nearly one hundred and fifty publishers.' Now, however, the number of titles presented to the reader is nearer fifteen thousand than eight or nine thousand. From this it would naturally be expected that the catalogue should be half as large again as it was before. It is so, in effect, though not apparently. By a modification of plan, the same amount of space has been made to hold much more than in the earlier edition.Directness and simplicity of reference have been the aim throughout. Observing this, it has been found possible to dispense with a great many cross references, by which means room has been much economised. The omission of the letters S. K. That preceded a large proportion of the titles in the previous issue, has helped in the same direction. S. K. Signified that such and such books were to be found in the unrivalled collection of educational literature at the South Kensington Museum. But as nearly every work that can be desired is almost as a matter of course to be found there, it has been thought that S. K.' might, without much lessening the value of the catalogue for reference, be omitted. Doing so has given space for about one thousand lines, meaning many more than that number of titles. In one case that could be named, six books (or different editions) are quoted in one line. This sort of compression also makes the catalogue seem less than it is. In strict parlance, the book is no larger than it was before, while the volume is, at least, half as much again.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
