Catalogue of the Books, Manuscripts, Maps and Drawings in the British Museum (Natural History)

    Abstract

    WITH this volume more than half the task of cataloguing the “supplementary” works in the Library of the Natural History Museum at South Kensington is completed. No information is given as to the period covered by this supplement, but in its earlier part it includes works published up to 1923 and in its later part to 1931. In addition, there are works of an earlier period—such as the majority of the entries under the heading of “Linnæus (Carl)”, which form a valuable classified index to writings by or about the great botanist, occupying 91 pages of the book. The type is clear, the bibliographical work of the high quality which readers have come to expect in these volumes; the book will be valued as a guide to a great library of natural history, and as a general index to the natural science publications of its period.
