BIBLIOGRAPHY



Although only a short partial bibliography, this listing includes all
known bound books in English dealing primarily with our subject, with
the exception of purely technical volumes (such as those on railroad
mail pay, weighings, or legal questions and those issued by the Post Office
Department or as Congressional reports). In general, other material
is listed only if referred to in text; and if starred (*) it deals only in
minor part with our subject. It is hoped to publish a complete Bibliog-
raphy in separate form, or as part of the next edition of this book.
