Excerpt from Hints Toward a Select and Descriptive Bibliography of Education: Arranged by Topics and Indexed by Authors
Whatever value this little handbook may have for those who use it will depend largely on their bearing constantly in mind that it is not put forth as a finished bibliography, but only the first beginnings of such an one as should be, and on their knowing beforehand in what parts and in what degree it is incomplete. First, many of the titles, being based on reading-notes made in foreign libraries, with no thought of such use as this, and from books not now in any of the half-dozen largest libraries in this country, are incomplete in form, or the edition, authors initials, or pages, etc., are lacking. Such, and other inaccuracies from other causes, have crept in despite the diligence of the assistant editor having this part of the work mainly in charge, and, with the facilities within reach, could not be remedied before another edition. Secondly, the grouping of the material is necessarily often arbitrary and provisional. To those who still hold that pedagogy is a finished system, the purely external arrangement of topics here adopted will be unsatisfactory. This bibliography was, however, primarily designed as a set of topical referencelists, to be given out in connection with the writers two-years course of lectures on education, to post-graduate and special students at the Johns Hopkins University, and follows in the main its order of topics, and, indeed, may now be of chief use to such students.
