Words and figures enclosed in brackets [ ] are ^ven for information, but do
not appear on the title pages of the publications cataloged. When place and
printer are not given, it is to be understood that the publication is printed at
the United States Government Printing Office, Washington, D. C; if processed,
publisher is issuing office. When size is not given, octavo is to be understood.
Size of maps is approximate, measurement being made from outer edge of border,
excluding margin. The dates, including day, month, and year, given with Senate
and House documents and reports are the dates on which they were ordered to be
printed. Usually the printing promptly follows the ordering, but various causM
sometimes make delays.

The word "processed" as used in this catalog Indicates publications which are
reproduced by duplicating processes other than ordinary printing, e. g., mimeo-
graph, multigraph, planograph, rotaprint, multilith. Processed publications are
not obtainable from the Superintendent of Documents and requests for them, If
they are available, should be addressed to the issuing office.

"Under provisions of the Printing Act of January 12, 1895, all Government publi-
cations are entered in the Monthly Catalog. However, press releases and admin-
litrative, regional, and confidential publications are omitted.

The L. C. card number appended to some of the entries is for those libraries
ordering printed cards from the Library of Congress. The number at the ex-
treme right of an entry indicates the classification of the publication in the
Offlce of the Superintendent of Doouments.

General Information

The Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Washington,
D. C, is authorized by law to sell copies of Government publications and to allow
a discount of 25 percent to book dealers and quantity purchasers on condition
that the purchasers will adhere to the public sales price set by the Superintendent
of Documents and that publications shall not be overprinted with any advertising

Publications cannot be supplied free to individuals nor forwarded in advance
of payment.

The sales stock, which amounts to more than 8 million, includes approximately
65,000 different titles. Many rare books are included, but under the law all must
be sold regardless of their age or scarcity. Many of the books have been in stock
some time, and are apt to be shopworn. In filling orders the best copy available
is sent.


A general price list of public documents is not available, but numerous lists
have been prepared on special subjects and any of these will be furnished free,
on application, if the person interested will state the subject or subjects concern-
ing which information is desired. It will also be noted that current publications
which are for sale are listed in this catalog.


In addition to the price lists, the Documents Office issues a semimonthly List of
selected United States Government publications for sale by the Superintendent
of Documents. Each list is arranged alphabetically by subjects, with annotations
and prices, and may be obtained free upon application to the Superintendent of


More than 12,000 different bills are usually introduced during a session of
Congress, and there are additional prints on many during the progress of the legis-
lation. With the exception of a very few — such as revenue bills — the demand is an
unknown quantity and on most of them we receive no orders, which makes it
impossible to print a sales supply. It may be that a copy could be obtained from
yoiir Congressman.

A difficult problem is also presented in providing a supply of congressional
documents and reports because there are usually more than 6,000 of this class
of publications issued during a Congress and only a few of them are called for.
We will attempt to print for sale a few of the more important ones, but if not
priced the only possible source would be from your Congressman.


Publications entered in this catalog that are for sale by the Superintendent
of Documents are Indicated by a star (*) preceding the price. A dagger (t)
indicates that application should be made to the department, bureau, or division


iBBalng the document. A doable dagger (X) Indicates that the docnmeiit 1^
printed for official use and Is not obtainable. Whenever additional information
concerning the method of procuring a document seems necessary, it will bt
found under the name of the bureau by which it was published.

In orderlug a publicatiou from the Superintetideiit of Documents, give (11
knowu) the name of the publishing department, bureau or division, and the title
together with the classification number which is added to the entry at the extreme
right; order the congressional documents and reports by the title, together with
the document or report number and the Congress and session, e. g., H. doc. 31,

Do not use the L. C. card number In ordering a publicatiou.


Remittances for the documents marked with a star (•) should be made te the
Superintendent of Documents, U. S. Governraeut Printing OflSce, Washington 25,
D. C, by coupons, postal money order, express order, or check. Currency maj
be sent at sender's risk. Foreign remittances should be made either by inter-
national money order or draft on an American bank.

Foreign money, defaced or smooth coins, uHll tiot be accepted. Do not itend
postage stamps.

For the convenience of the general public, coupons in the denomination of 6c
that are good until used in exchange for Government publications sold by the
Superintendent of Documents may be purchased from his oflSce. Address order
to Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Washington 25, D. C.

No charge is made for postage on documents forwarded to points in United
States and possessions, or to Canada, Cuba, Mexico, Newfoundland (including
Labrador), and certain Central and South American countries. To other coun-
tries the regular rate of postage is charged, and remittances must cover such post-
age. In computing foreign postage, add one-third of the price of the publication.


The number given at the extreme right of each entry (except for congres-
sional documents and reports) is the classification number by which tlie pub-
lication is arranged in the Library and in the sales stock of the Office of the
Superintendent of Documents. It can be used as a classification number by
such libraries as are using, for the departmental publications, the arrangement
of public documents advocated in the Check list of United States public docu-
ments, 178&-1909. In using this number as a classification number In a library,
it should be noted that the shilling mark (/) is used to separate what would
ordinarily be a superior or inferior number (the numbers Immediately following
the line) from the main classification number, it not being practicable to print
these numbers as superiors or inferiors in the Monthly catalog.


Numbers to be used in ordering the printed catalog cards of the Library of
Congress are appended to entries for many pulilicatious. These are given at
the left with "L. C. card" prefixed. Do not confuse with the Documents Office
classification number given at the right. Orders for these cards, remittances
in payment for them, and requests for information about them should be ad-
dressed to the Card Division, Library of Congress, not to the Superintendent
of Documents. Checks or money orders should be made payable to the Librarian
of Congress.


January 1944


The Monthly catalog is sold on subscription, price $2.00 a year, including index ;
foreign subscription $2.60 a year. Back numbers cannot be supplied. Notify
the Superintendent of Documents of any change of address.

An Index to the Monthly catalog will be issued at the end of the calendar
year. This will contain index entries for all the numbers issued from January
to December, and can be bound with the numbers as an index to the volume.
Persons desiring to bind the catalog at the end of the year should be careful
to retain the numbers received monthly, as diiplicate copies cannot be supplied.
