Excerpt from A Subject Index of the Modern Works Added to the Library of the British Museum in the Years 1891-1895 The first Subject Index of Modern Works added to the Library of the British Museum was published in 1886. It contained an Index of the books published in and after the year 1880 which had been acquired between January 1880 and August 1885. The second volume, issued in 1891, continued the work from September 1885 to the end of December 1890, while the present volume carries on the Index from January 1891 to the end of December 1895. The system of arrangement adopted in this volume follows as closely as possible that of the second Index, but as the latter will not necessarily be in the hands of those who may use the present work, it may be desirable to repeat here, almost verbatim, the explanations previously given.
