A CATALOGUE of the Books belonging to “ The Library Company of Philadelphia," was published in the year 1789, and another in the year 1807, to which Supplements have been occasionally added. Since that period, the Library has been very considerably increased by donations and purchases; and a desire having been expressed, by many of the members, that another should be published, the Directors have therefore prepared a complete Catalogue of the Books now belonging to the Institution, on a plan now generally approved of and adopted. A Synoptical Table of Contents is prefixed, and an alphabetical Index subjoined, to facilitate inquiry.
The Roman capitals which immediately follow the number of the books, refer to the size, thus :
L. At the end of the title indicates that the work belongs to the donation of the late William Logan.
P. In a similar situation, that the work forms part of the bequest of the late Rev. Samuel Preston.
M. That the work forms part of the bequest of the late William Mackenzie, Esq.
The names of other donors are given in full.
