A DISTINGUISHED editor, when returning a rejected contribution, remarked: “Before you attempt to write on any subject be quite certain that you can say something fresh about it.” I am not very confident of my qualification to say anything fresh on the well‐worn topic of cataloguing, but I will endeavour, with your kind forbearance, to introduce a part of the subject which has not yet been treated separately, rather than to bring forward one of the more important branches which has already received considerable attention. This is my apology for asking you to consider the dry and uncompromising subject of the signs and symbols which should be understood in cataloguing.
