CATALOGUE OF THE PRINTED BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH.
The University of Edinburgh decided, around 1900, to issue a general catalogue of printed books in the University Library, a project which came to a close with appearance of Volume Three in 1923. In the three volumes, there are about 200,000 entries, arranged alphabetically, mostly by author, two columns per page. Light soiling, a few scratches.
