THIS Supplement contains all the Works added to the Library from the publication of the Catalogue in 1845, to the close of the year 1850.
The same plan is adopted, viz.-an Alphabetical Arrangement of Titles under the Author's name; or under the Subject of the work, when the Author is unknown.
Cross-references are principally confined to the names of Authors, Editors, and Persons mentioned in the titles.
The Appendix to the first part of the Catalogue is incorporated in the Supplement.
To facilitate consultation, an extensive Classified Alphabetical Index of Subjects has been compiled by Mr. B. R. WHEATLEY.
This does not include Works entered under Subjective Headings in the general Alphabet of the Catalogue, such as Special Biographies, and Translations of, or Commentaries on, Classical Authors (the exceptions to the rule as to Authors' names, given above), for these, being already under the Subject of the Biography or the Name of the Classic, required no further reference.
In the first part of the Catalogue, the Contents of the principal Collections of Voyages and Travels were separately entered under their Authors' names: these, being only parts of Works, have not been again referred to in the Index; but under the different Countries, the particular volumes of the Collections relating to them have been indicated.
The Catalogues of Tracts having been fully cross-referenced, are also not included, but the Subjective Headings of each class are noticed in the Index.
To distinguish between Authors referred to in the first part of the Catalogue and those in the Supplement, the former are printed in Italics, as-Adams; the latter in Roman, as— -Acland.
