This is an interesting list as having been
compiled . with special thought by a cele-
brated man, but in many of its details it
is little likely to find acceptance with the
general reader. It seems rather odd to an
Englishman to find the Princess of Cleves
included, while Shakespeare is only to be
found in a selection of his plays. It is not
Comte's fault that science has not stood
still since 1854, and that his selection of
books is rather out of date.

A list of a hundred good novels is likely
to be useful to many, but few lists would be

open to more criticism, for readers differ
more as to what constitutes a good novel
than upon any other branch of literature.
The following list was contributed by Mr.
F. B. Perkins to the Library Journal (vol. i.
p. 1 66). The titles are very short, and they
are put down in no particular order. Most
of us will miss some favourite book, but
two people, Mr. Perkins says, have agreed
on this list within four or five items. He
says he was tempted to add a few alterna-
tives, as Amadis de Gaul, Morte d'Arthur,
Paul and Virginia, Frankenstein, Rasselas,

CHAPTER V.
GENERAL BIBLIOGRAPHIES.

GOOD collection of bibliographies
is indispensable for a public library,
and will also be of great use in a
private library when its possessor is a true
lover of books. One of the most valuable
catalogues of this class of books is the
" Hand-List of Bibliographies, Classified
Catalogues, and Indexes placed in the
Reading Room of the British Museum for
Reference" (1881). It is not intended to
give in this chapter anything like a complete
account of these books, as a separate volume
would be required to do justice to them.
Here it will be sufficient to indicate some of
the foremost works in the class. The cata-
logues of some of our chief libraries are



142 How to Form a Library.

amongst the most valuable of bibliographies
for reference. The Catalogue of the Library
of the London Institution is one of the hand-
somest ever produced. 1 Unfortunately the
cost of production was too great for the
funds of the Institution, and the elaborate
Catalogue of Tracts was discontinued after
the letter F.

The London Library being a specially
well-selected one, the catalogue (which is a
good example of a short-titled catalogue) is
particularly useful for ready reference. 2

The Royal Institution Library is very rich

in British Topography, and the catalogue
forms a convenient handbook. 1

The Catalogue of the Patent Office Library
is by no means a model, but the second
volume forms a good book of reference. 2
Many other catalogues might be mentioned,
but these will be sufficient for our present
purpose. There is great want of a good
Handbook of Literature, with the prices of
the different books. Until this want is
supplied good booksellers' catalogues will
be found the most trustworthy guides. Pre-
eminent among these are the catalogues of

Mr. Quaritch, and the " Catalogue of up-
wards of fifty thousand volumes of ancient
and modern books," published by Messrs.
Willis and Sotheran in 1862. Mr. Qnaritch's
catalogues are classified with an index of
subjects and authors. 1 A previous General
Catalogue was issued in 1874, and a Supple-
ment 1875-77 (pp. iv. 1672). Now Mr.
Quaritch is issuing in sections a new Cata-
logue on a still larger scale, which is of the
greatest value.

For the study of early printed books,
Hain, 2 Panzer, 3 and Maittaire's 4 books are
indispensable.

For general literature Brunet's Manual 1
stands pre-eminent in its popularity. It has
held its own since 1810, when it was first
published in three volumes, demy octavo.
Graesse's Tresor 2 is less known out of
Germany, but it also is a work of very great
value. Ebert's work 3 is somewhat out of
date now, but it still has its use. Watt's
Bibliotheca 4 is one of the most valuable
bibliographies ever published, chiefly on

account of the index of subjects which
gives information that cannot be found else-
where. The titles were largely taken from
second-hand sources, and are in many
instances marred by misprints. Every one
who uses it must wish that it was brought
down to date, but it is scarcely likely that
any one will sacrifice a life to such labour as
would be necessary. Moreover, the popular
feeling is somewhat adverse to universal
bibliographies, and it is thought that the
literature of his own country is sufficiently
large a subject for the bibliographer to
devote his time to.

English literature has not been neglected
by English bibliographers, although a full
bibliography of our authors is still a crying
want. Complete lists of the works of some
of our greatest authors have still to be made,
and it is to be hoped that all those who have
the cause of bibliography at heart will join
to remedy the great evil. It would be quite
possible to compile a really national work by
a system of co-operation such as was found
workable in the case of the Philological



General Bibliographies. 147

Society's Dictionary of the English Lan-
guage. Sub-editors of the different letters
might be appointed, and to them all titles
could be sent. When the question of printing
arose, it would be well to commence with
the chief authors. These bibliographies
might be circulated, by which means many
additions would be made to them, and then
they could be incorporated in the general
alphabet. In such a bibliography books
in manuscript ought to be included, as
well as printed books Although there
is little doubt that many books still remain
unregistered, we are well supplied with
catalogues of books made for trade purposes.
Maunsell 1 was the first to publish such a
list, and in 1631 was published a catalogue
of books issued between 1626 and i63i. 2

For early printed books, Ames and
Herbert's great work 3 is of much value, but
information respecting our old literature
has increased so much of late that a new
history of typographical antiquities is sadly
needed. Mr. Blades has done the necessary
work for Caxton, but the first English
printer's successors require similar treat-
ment.

an eminent bookseller and publisher, and
himself a bookseller, published in 1834
his Bibliographer's Manual?- which has re-
mained the great authority for English
Literature. It had become very scarce
when Henry Bohn, in 1857, brought out
a new edition with additions in a series
of handy volumes, which is an indis-
pensable book of reference, although it is
far from being the complete work that is
required.

Allibone's Dictionary* contains much that
is omitted in Lowndes's Manual, but it
is more literary than bibliographical in
its scope. The well-selected criticisms
appended to the titles of the several
books are of considerable interest and
value to the reader. Mr, W. C. Hazlitt's

Handbooks * are exceedingly valuable as ,
containing information respecting a class
of books which has been much neglected
in bibliographical works. The compiler
has been indefatigable for some years past
in registering the titles of rare books as
they occurred at public sales.

Mr. Collier's account of rare books, 3
founded on his Bridgewater Catalogue
(1837), is of great use for information re-
specting out-of-the-way literature, as also
is Mr. Corser's descriptive Catalogue of Old
English Poetry. 3
