Throughout his long professional career, George Watson Cole was recognized as one of the leading bibliographers in the United States. This book summarizes Cole's varied accomplishments: compiler of the E. Dwight Church catalogs, first Director of the Henry E. Huntington Library, President of the Bibliographical Society of America, and prolific contributor to bibliographic and library journals. Cole was prominent in many bibliographic endeavors and counted many notable figures among his close associates. In addition to a narrative sketch of Cole's life, the book supplies the text of a number of Cole's most important bibliographic essays and a complete checklist of his publications.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...the theory and practice underlying them are just as germane today as when Cole wrote the articles in 1901...Library science libraries, of course, will want to purchase this title... * Journal of Academic Librarianship *
...well-selected...essays make interesting and informative reading...a welcome addition to the series. * Analytic and Enumerative Bibliography *
...a great service...highly recommended for any collection on books and bibliography...essential in all academic libraries. * Australian Library Journal *
These essays interest not only because they trace the beginnings of scientific bibliography in this century, but because they reveal the passions and prejudices of an early gentleman scholar-librarian...gathers together useful material on an important figure... * Library Journal *
