PREFATORY NOTE.

Under the provisions of the. act of Congress approved July 8, 1870, "An act to
revise, consolidate, and amend the statutes relating to patents and copyrights,"
the registration of works in which copyright was claimed was transferred to the
Library of Congress. The first registration under this act was dated July 10, 1870,
and the fu-st registration for a dramatic work was made on July 21 , the same year.
The present catalogue of Dramatic Compositions Copyrighted in the United States
includes all titles for dramatic works registered from July 21, 1870, to December 31,
1916, inclusive; upwards of 60,000 titles. It does not represent, however, a collec-
tion of the same number of deposited works. Under the legislation in force from
July 8, 1870 to July 1, 1909, it was customary to file the title-page of the di-ama in
advance of the deposit of copies and subsequently deposit the required copies. The
result has been that a great many titles were filed for registration which were not
followed by the deposit of copies. This was especially so in the case of dramas, and
it is estimated that in more than 20,000 cases, while the title has been recorded, no
copies have been received. It has been deemed advisable to include in this catalogue
all titles recorded ; and where no copies have been found, the failure to receive them
is indicated by the omission of any date of copies received.

By the copyright act of 1909, the preliminary deposit of the title-page was
abolished and registration has only been possible upon the deposit of the dramatic
work, two copies in the case of a published drama and one manuscript copy in the
case of an unpublished play (where "copies have not been reproduced for sale").

This catalogue it is hoped will speak for itself. The bibliographical form was
adopted after careful consideration of the many questions involved. It is thought
that the arrangement by titles in one alphabet for the whole collection will prove the
most serviceable. The titles in this alphabet are numbered consecutively, and from
the index the citation is to the number following the title of each play, instead of to the
printed page. This direct citation it is believed will be found a distinct advantage.
A supplementary alphabet includes the titles registered while the printing was in
progress, and contains about 3,500 titles.

Because of the great bulk of the work, it has been necessary to make each
entry in a very condensed form and to supply the facts to be recorded, and which
are repeated in relation to each title — name and address of claimant; date of deposit
of title and registration; date of publication (for pubHshed dramas), and date of
deposit, together with class designation and entry number — in an arbitrarily devised
form of abbreviated statement. ^This should be properly understood to prevent
mistakes. Following this prefatory note are printed careful explanations with
examples. The different provisions of the various copjTighted laws should be
clearly borne in mind to correctly interpret the indications found in the cop}Tight
paragraph follo^^^ng each title. From 1870 to June 30, 1909, the date of the regis-
tration of the title-page was the date upon which the term of copyright protection
began to run. From July 1, 1909, this is so only in the case of unpublished dramas
C'not reproduced in copies for sale"); but the beginning of this term of copyright
is indicated by the date of the receipt of one manuscript copy (the deposit of a
title-page having been abrogated). Since July 1, 1909, however, the beginning of



PREFATORY NOTE.

the copyright protection in the case of each dramatic work pubHshed since that
date is the date of 'publication, which is indicated by the arbitrary sign © C' copy-
righted") authorized by the copyright act, followed by such stated date of pubhca-
tion.

From 1870 to 1899 all copyi-ight registrations were made without any class
designation of the worlvs in one series of numbered entries for each year. To
indicate such entries the year date is followed by the entry number (e. g., "1875:
13297").

Dimng the year 1900 the cop}Tight records were for more convenient use
divided into four classes: "A," "B," ''C," and "D." In this classification dra-
matic compositions were designated "A." From 1901 the class designation *'D"
was used up to July 1, 1909, and after that date also under the express provision of
section 5 of the copyright act which then went into effect. The entries for all classes
of copyright works were given a new series of twentieth centur}^ numbers from Janu-
ary 1, 1901, and the designation briefly indicated (e. g., dramatic compositions,
''xxc, class D, No. 18971").

The main alphabet of the titles of the registered dramas contains cross-references
from aU alternative, or secondary or translated titles; and also from the titles of all
plays contained in any volume or volumes of collected dramas. The alphabet of
titles is followed by an alphabetical index containing references from the names of
aU authors, joint authoi-s, editors, translatoi's, and copyi-ight proprietors; together
with cross-references from pen-names, pseudonyms, etc.

This catalogue was under contemplation and was carefidly planned for many
yeai-s before it became possible to carry out the work. The supervision of the final
preparation of the catalogue was intrusted to Mi*. Henry S. Parsons, Chief of the
Catalogue and Index Division of the Copyi-ight Office, and he has devoted to the
details of the work um-emitting care and attention. The original title cards were
prepared by the indexing and cataloguing force of his division, but the task of
unifying the title entries, making sm'e of absolute accuracy, and the general editing
of the printer's copy from A to Z has been the work of Mrs. Mary Wright Davis.
Faithful and intelligent assistance in this task has been rendered by Dr. Woodbmy
Pulsifer and Mi". Earl M. Jeffrey, and the titles in foreign languages have been care-
fully revised by Dr. George C. Keidel, all members of the Copyi-ight Office force.

The cojjyi-ight act provides that the register of copyi-ights at stated intervals
shall print complete and indexed catalogues for each class of copyi-ight entries, and
expressly provides that such consolidated catalogues and indexes shall be supplied
" to all persons ordering them at such prices as may be determined to be reasonable"
by the Superintendent of Public Documents. In accordance with this provision of
law 1,000 copies of the present work is offered to subscribei-s at a price of $4 for the
set of tAvo volumes, bound in cloth.

Respectfully submitted,

Thorvald Solberg,

Register of Copyriglits.
Herbert Putnam,

Lihrarian of Con/p'ess.

EXPLANATIONS WITH EXAMPLES.

Tlie complete title of the drama is in each case followed by a paragraph con-
taining (1) the name and address of the copyright owner; (2) the date of the entry;
(3) the date of the deposit of copies in the Copyright Office; (4) the date of publi-
cation, for works deposited since July 1, 1909, under the present law; and (5) the
class designation and registration number by which the entry is identified on the
copyright records. Since the provisions of the copyright law have been altered
from time to time during the period covered by this catalogue, the order and sig-
nificance of the copjTight paragraphs show a corresponding variation. For a com-
plete guide to these differences reference should be made to the carefully selected
examples with full explanations and to the list of abbreviations which follow.

edition of " Christus " in 1886, a 14-year renewal of the same in 1900,

The present copyright law permits a renewal of an entry, during
the last year of the original term, for a second term of 28 years. If
such an entry has already been renewed for 14 years under the pre-
vious law, it can be extended for a further term of 14 years. This
gives in either case a total of 56 years' protection.
