Boards a bit rubbed, corners lightly stained. 1887 Half-Leather. 10, 1078 pp. The eighth in a 61-volume series which spanned 81 years, and was ultimately comprised of five series. The first series (of which this volume was a part) was primarily indexed by John Shaw Billings - his work would become a cornerstone for the foundation of the National Library of Medicine. John Shaw Billings selected a dictionary arrangement for the printed Index-Catalogue and explained in his transmittal letter in Series I, vol. 1. that The great majority of physicians ... have expressed a decided preference for this form; .... Under specific subject headings, Index-Catalogue divides monographs and dissertations into a second alphabet by author and title, and creates a third alphabet by author for analytics. (NLM)
