Note In 1871, Mr. Huth engaged W. C. Hazlitt and F. S. Ellis to catalog his collection, the former cataloging English works, and the latter foreign.

By Dec. 1878, when he died, he had revised only up to sheet 5U, about half the work. After Mr. Huth's death, Mr. Ellis, who had edited the work from the time it was sent to press, carried it on alone. cf. Pref. (signed: Alfred H. Huth)
