This is a new and completely revised edition of the Finding List entitled: Political Science; Social Science; Education, the seventh edition of which, issued in 1893, has long been out of print. The subject of Law has been added and all of the subjects included have been greatly amplified so that the list is very much larger in size and scope than its predecessors. It is not, however, a complete catalogue of all the resources of the Library in these classes, but a list of the books, only, omitting reference to periodicals, collections and other analytical material, which is made accessible through the card catalogue. On the other hand, it is somewhat fuller than the ordinary class list as many books, dealing with more than one subject, have been entered in more than one place, following the practice of the card catalogue upon which this compilation is based. In some cases, also, titles of books which were clearly out of date and had ceased to be of value even from a historic point of view have been excluded, but this has been done sparingly, and, it is hoped, without injury.
The Table of Contents gives an outline of the classification of the list. So far as practicable it follows the admirable and exhaustive schemes of the Library of Congress. Alphabetical subject and author indexes are appended, beginning at page 333.
