This checklist describes printed catalogues of books separately issued in America prior to 1801 by booksellers, publishers, book auctioneers, circulating libraries, social libraries, college libraries, and private libraries. Arranged chronologically, each entry gives collations and description with notes as to kinds of books and range of dates represented in the catalogue, with a listing of references and locations of copies. Tables in the introduction break down the catalogues as to Type and Date, Place of Publication by state, and Place of Publication by city.
