The present volume is a continuation of the "Bibliotheca Americana," compiled by the late 0. A. Roorbach, the fourth volume of which brought the work down to 1861, and was first announced as the fifth volume of that series, but, objections having been made by the son of Mr. Roorbach, the present title of "American Catalogue” has been adopted.
The period covered by the present volume is one of the most eventful in the history of the United States, commencing in war, ending in peace; during which time all communications having been cut off from the Southern States, made it a difficult task to procure the titles of Southern publications. A list of such as could be obtained is given, and will be found at the end of the Appendix.
In collecting the materials for this volume, it was doubted whether it was best to include or omit such war pamphlets as came under notice, but it was finally decided to give them in a collected form, and they are added as a Supplement.
The present volume gives 11,307. Titles, the Appendix excepted..
The compiler returns his grateful thanks for the special favors conferred on him by all from whom he had occasion to solicit information. He intends to spare no expense or labor in making the future issues of the "American Catalogue" all that can be desired by publishers and literary men.
J. K. NEW YORK, October, 1866.
At the request of some of the publishers, several books published prior io 1861, and omitted in the fourth volume of the “Bibliotheca Americana, are here given.
