LIST OF ABBREVIATIONS EMPLOYED.
The letter S, affixed to any title, denotes that the work belongs to the library of the Smithsonian Institution.
The books are described as folio, quarto, octavo, duodecimo, etc., according to the apparent size of the volume, and not according to the printer's designations derived from the fold of the sheets.
In the alphabetical arrangement, the prefix Mc, M', or Mac, is treated uniformly as a component part of the word, as if spelled Mac. Thus, McLeod or M'Leod precedes Maclure. In like manner, the prefixes New, La, Du, etc., are treated as component parts of the words to which they belong. Thus New England follows Newell instead of preceding it, as it would do if the prefix New were treated as a separate word.
It is one of the aims of the present catalogue to furnish with the titles a sufficiently full collation of each work. Thus it is made a part of the description to give the number of pages in the case of all works not exceeding two volumes, together with the number of maps and plates, if any, and the name of the publisher. The information thus conveyed will, it is believed, be found of practical value to readers, as conveying at a glance some idea of the extent of each work, while the addition of publishers' names is useful as supplying a guide to the identification of editions. In the case of books printed without date, the actual or approximate date is uniformly supplied, in brackets.
Brackets in any part of a title indicate that the words included in them are not found in the title, but are inserted.
The employment of capital letters in titles has been strictly confined to proper names, and to the initial letter of each sentence. Although this departs from a very general usage in printing the German and some other languages, it secures a uniform and elegant typography. The capitalization of substantives was not practiced in the earlier days of German typography, and high modern authorities (including the new Wörterbuch of the brothers Grimm) have abandoned it for a uniform type.
