The library of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society is believed to be the oldest, most complete, and best organized strictly horticultural library in the world. is especially rich in the older American horticultural books and periodicals. For many years the need of a catalogue of the library has been felt, a want that has now been supplied.

The new catalogue is a quarto volume of 587 doublecolumn pages arranged in two parts. The first part, consisting of 372 pages, contains an alphabetical list of authors and titles with full descriptions of the volumes, and many notes of bibliographical interest. The second part, consisting of 215 pages, contains a classified arrangement based on the same material under subject headings, in which all the publications on a certain subject can be readily found together.

Highly appreciative notices of the volume have come from horticulturists in the United States and Europe, one of the references to it stating "It may be safely said without any fear of exaggeration that the Catalogue of the Library of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society is the finest catalogue of the finest library of its kind in the world." (Gardeners' Chronicle, London.)

The price of the catalogue is $10, postpaid. Address orders to the Librarian, Horticultural Hall, 300 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts, U. S. A.

Boston, February 10, 1922.
