Notes of

General Interest

The General Printing Act, approved January 12, 1895, created the
Office of Superintendent of Documents, and defined the duties of the
Superintendent. One of these duties was the preparation of a
monthly catalogue, provided for as follows :

" Section 69. A catalogue of Government publications shall be pre-
pared by the superintendent of documents on the first day of each
month, which shall show the documents printed during the preceding
month, where obtainable, and the price thereof."

The first issue under this provision was made for the month of
January, 1895, being numbered one (1) of the series, and the issue
was continued in practically the same form (that of Governmental
author by department) up to January 1, 1906 (no. 133), when the
form was changed to Governmental author by issuing office.

In December, 1897 (no. 36), a new and very useful feature, an
index, was introduced, and beginning in February, 1900 (no. 62),
the catalogue was further improved by making the index cumulative
from January to June and July to November, with a yearly index in
the December number.

With these additions, and as a result of the careful work which
was put upon it by the catalogue force, the Monthly catalogue
assumed an important place on the reference shelves of the libra-
ries and became a handy manual for all persons interested in
United States Government publications. In fact, from the returns
received from the libraries in answer to questions relative to the
usefulness of the publications of this Office, it is evident that the
Monthly catalogue has been more widely used and more highly
prized than either the Document catalogue or the Document index.

It was not the intention pf Congress, however, to have the work
of cataloguing done in duplicate. Its purpose in legislating was to
provide foi^a " Comprehensive index,'' or catalogue, which should be
the permanent official record of all Government publications both
Congressional and Departmental ; a " Consolidated index " to the
numbered Congressional documents and reports, instead of numerous
indexes distributed through the volumes composing the four series —
that is. Senate documents. Senate reports. House documents, and
House reports, and a Monthly catalogue to be issued "on the first


•^ 137815

4 July, 1907

day of each month," and which should show " the documents printed
during the preceding month, where obtainable, and the price

This legislation for a Monthly catalogue really contemplated a list
of available publications, to be issued promptly, and to tell where
they could be obtained and whether free or at what cost.

Obviously the Catalogue as Issued up to the present time has not
strictly complied with this law, as it has been composed mainly of
entries for documents and reports which were not " available " at
any price.

In order to comply more strictly with the law and make it pos-
sible with a limited force of trained people to issue the Document
catalogue and Document index more promptly, and in view of the
fact that these same experts must be used in the reoi'ganization of
the Superintendent of Documents' Office, it became necessary to
eliminate from the Monthly catalogue those valuable features which
were not specifically directed by law, and which only a law and an
additional force of experts would warrant.

The sacrifice of the cumulative index was one which economy and
the avoidance of duplication demanded. No doubt it was valuable ;
but since it delayed the issue of the more important bibliographical
publications, its elimination was considered wise.

The dropping of this feature necessitated a less involved form of
entry, and, as an experiment, the issuing office was chosen. There
is a diversity of opinion as to the advisability of this experiment,
even with those who are unanimous in their condemnation of the
removal of the index.

After careful consideration of the subject, and the Office being
still in a condition of reorganization which would not warrant
action looking to the reinstatement of the old form and index, no
matter how advisable that might seem to many, the issue in its
present form is submitted for your generous criticism.

The main feature in this new form is the subject arrangement,
rather than that by Governmental author, which, without an index,
was voted to be too cumbersome, although it possessed many advan-
tages. The form of subject headings used in the Document cata-
logues of this Office has been adopted for use in the IMonthly cata-
logue so as to secure uniformity in the subject treatment of the pub-
lications. References will be made to the subject so that the publi-
cation will be fully covered. The typography has been only slightly '
changed in order to use machines in the composition. The paper is
of a much better quality, and it will be the endeavor of this Office,
as in all its publications, to have the presswork and other mechanical
operations first class, that the catalogues may be not only accurate
but easy of reference and pleasing to the eye.

No publication will be entered which is not " obtainable." In the
past, entries made for certain i>ublications which had been printed

July, 1907 5

but were not obtainable, have caused the various publishing bureaus
endless annoyance, and it is to avoid this difficulty that the titles
of such publications are omitted. These titles will, of course,
appear in the Document catalogues.

The asterisk (*) and a price indicate as formerly that the work
can be purchased at this Office at the price named. In cases of dis-
tribution or sale by the publishing office an obelisk (t) will appear,
indicating that application should be made direct to that office. Even
in this way we will doubtless present many titles of books which,
when called for. will not be sent on account of a limited edition or
because a large edition has been exhausted ; but we shall endeavor
to give information which will lead to the procuring of a book
rather than to useless correspondence.

The cover pages will be used for advertising purposes and will
not be paged into the monthly issues, and the monthly issues will
not be made up for volumes.

Some space will be devoted each month to book talks and notes of
pecial interest, and it is hoped that in this way much valuable in-
ormation relative to old and current publications may be circulated.

This issue of the catalogue contains entries of numerous valu-
able publications. The Yearbook of the Department of Agricul-
ture for 1906 is now being disti'ibuted. The price fixed by this
Office is a nominal charge for a volume containing many valuable
articles (as will be seen by an examination of the list of contents
included in the entry on the second page of the catalogue, under the
heading "Agriculture Department") and which is substantially and
neatly bound in durable blue cloth, profusely illustrated, and printed
on first-class paper. The fact that 500,000 copies are annually
printed under the law for distribution by Congress and the Agricul-
ture Department is an indication of the popularity of the volume
among farmers. It is extremely difficult for this Office to keep on
hand for sale a sufficient stock to supply the constant demands.

Games of North American Indians, by Stewart Culin, is the title
of an 846-page, large octavo volume which is stated on the title-
page to be an " extract from the Twenty-fourth Annual Report of the
Bureau of American Ethnology." It forms, in fact, the larger part
of the Report volume. As the title indicates, the work is one of
unusual interest, for the development of a nation is largely reflected
in its games. Numerous plates and text figures add greatly to the
interest of a work of this character, and the policy of the Bureau
is to spare no time or labor in perfecting its illustrations.

6 July, 1907

On the back cover of this catalogue will be found some " Important
Information," which will aid in ordering documents from this Office.
We are somewhat hampered in our business intercourse by the usual
and seemingly unavoidable red-tape, b.v restrictive legislation, and
by ignorance of the functions of this Office by the library world and
the general public. It is hoped that by continuing to publish these
bits of " Important Information " we will avoid exasperating delays
and perplexing complications.
