Description : Excerpt from Bibliography of the Muskhogean Languages A number of years ago the writer undertook the compilation of a bibliography of North American languages. In the course of his work' he visited the principal public and private libraries of the United States, Canada, and northern Mexico, carried on an extensive corre Spondence with librarians, missionaries, and others interested in the subject, and examined such printed authorities as were at hand. The results of these researches were embodied in a single volume, of which a limited number of copies were printed and distributed - an author's catalogue, including all the material then in hand. Since its issue he has had an Opportunity to visit the national libraries of England and France, as well as a number of private ones in both these countries, and to revisit a considerable number in this country and Canada. A sufficient amount of new material has thus been collected to lead to the belief that a series of catalogues may well be prepared, each referring to one of the more prominent groups of our native languages. Of this series three have been published, relating respectively to the Eski mauan, the Siouan, and the Iroquoian families. The present is the fourth, and the fifth, now in preparation, will relate to the Algonquian. The family names employed in these catalogues are taken from the linguistic map in course of construction by the Bureau of Ethnology. Their adoption for that work is based upon the law of priority. In the compilation of this catalogue the aim has been to include everything, printed or in manuscript, relating to the subject books, pamphlets, articles in. Magazines, tracts, serials, etc., and such reviews and announcements of publications as seemed worthy of notice.
