The books are grouped into 18 major areas, each of which is broken down into smaller subsets: (1) Bibliographies, (2) General Reference Tools, (3) Encyclopedias, (4) Dictionaries, (5) General Biography and Genealogy; (6) Literature, (7) Visual Arts, (8) Performing Arts, (9) Philosophy and Religion, (10) Social Sciences, (11) Geography and Archaeology, (12) Education, (13) Political Science and Law, (14) Business and Economics, (15) History, (16) Sports, Hobbies, and Recreation, (17) Science, and (18) Applied Sciences. Of the total number of references (930), 310 are starred as most suitable for selection by a small library, and prices and International Standard Book Numbers are provided for most items. An index is included. (Author/JD)
