The following publications have been received in the Library in page-proof
form and preliminary catalog entries have been made. Advance orders may be
placed for these publications. Orders will be scheduled and copies mailed as
soon as stocks are received. It is not possible to estimate the lapse of time before
the publications will actually appear. All entries are tentative, as changes are
sometimes made after a publication has reached page proof. For this same
reason prices are subject to change.

Words and figures enclosed in brackets [ ] are given for information, but do
not appear on the title pages of the publications cataloged. Place and printer are
not given for publications printed at the United States Government Printing
OiRce, Washington, D. C; if processed, publisher is issuing office. Size is not
given for octavo publications. Size of maps is approximate, measurement being
made from outer edge of border, excluding margin. The dates 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 causes
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, administra-
tive, confidential (or restricted) 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 extreme
right of an entry indicates the classification of the publication in the Office of the
Superintendent of Documents.


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

The sales stock 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 by subject or subjects concerning which information is desired. It
will also be noted that current publications which are for sale are listed in this


In addition to the price lists, the Documents Ofiice 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 Superintendent of


More than 12,000 different bills are usually introduced during a Congress, and
there are additional prints on many during the progress of the legislation. 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 your

A difficult problem is also presented in providing a supply of congressional
documents, hearings, and reports because there are approximately 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 (f) indicates
that application should be made to the department, bureau, or division issuing

the document. A double dagger (t) indicates that the document is printed for
official use and is not obtainable. The symbol (0) indicates the publication was
received late and no copies are available at the Division of Public Documents.
Whenever additional information concerning the method of procuring a document
seems necessary, it will be found under the name of the bureau by which it was

In ordering a publication from the Superintendent of Documents, give (if
known) the name of the publishing department, bureau or division, and the title,
together with the classilication numlier 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, e. g., H. rp. 2, 80th Congress.

Do not use the L. C. card number in ordering a publication from the Superin-
tendent of Documents.


Remittances for the documents marked with a star (*) should be made to the
Superintendent of Documents, U. S. Government Printing Office, Washington 25,
D. C, by coupon, postal money order, express order, or check. Currency may 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, ivill not be accepted. Do not send
postage stamps.

For the convenience of the general public, coupons in the denomination of 5c
that are good until used in exchange for Government publications sold by the
Superintendent of Documents may be purchased from his office. 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
postage. In computing foreign postage, add one-third of the price of the


The number given at the extreme right of each entry (except for congressional
documents and reports) is the classification number by which the publication 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 documents, 1789-1909. 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.
