*** The few short notes in this list are not meant to criticise, but to explain titles too concise to show clearly the character of books.

For the convenience of purchasers it has been attempted to indicate roughly which are the more important or desirable of the books named under the several subjects. Thus :

A means that the book so marked is considered the best or as good as any At A MODERATE COST. B means in like manner, the best of the more elaborate or costly books on the subject.

In the department of Fiction the books are however marked without reference to their cost.
