A Catalogue of the Library has long been a desideratum, not only to the members of the Society, but to all who sought access to their archives. Without such an index, a great portion of our volumes were no better than sealed books to every enquirer who had not time or patience to seek, among the undigested mass, for such dates and facts as he desired to ascertain. The Catalogue now published is almost wholly the work of the late lamented Librarian, Christopher C. Baldwin, whose decease the Society deplores as an irreparable loss. It was prepared by him with great care and labor, and is a monument of his untiring industry. It has been completed and brought up to the present date, by the acting librarian, Maturin L. Fisher, Esq. Its accuracy, as far at least as regards the bound books, has been since subjected to the test of a careful comparison of its titles with the correspondent volumes on the shelves of the library. It is in the alphabetical form, which has been generally adopted by librarians, as more simple in its arrangement and more convenient for reference, than a systematic index. The plan pursued was to give the name of the author when known, and where the work is anonymous, briefly to state the subject. Each letter of the Alphabet has been paged by itself, to facilitate the insertion of future additions under the respective letters, and thus render a new edition of the whole Catalogue unnecessary, at least for several years. Our list of books, it will be observed, contains an unusual proportion of tracts, for which reason it is swollen to a size somewhat disproportionate to the solid contents of the library. But we prize this large collection of pamphlets, as a most important part of those materials for history which it is the great object of the Society to preserve; and if the list was confined to these alone, we should judge it of sufficient consequence to warrant a publication.
A written Catalogue of Manuscripts, very minute in its titles and details, is now in a course of preparation, and will be kept in the library for the inspection of all who may have occasion to consult it.
By order of the Council,
