Excerpt from Bibliography of the Algonquian Languages
As stated in the prefatory remarks to one of the earlier issues of the series of bib liographies of which this volume forms the fifth number, the writer undertook a number of years ago the compilation Of a work to be published by the Bureau of Ethnology, which was to embrace within a single volume an authors' catalogue of all. The material relating to the native North American languages. With this purpose in view he visited the principal public and private libraries of the United States, Canada, and northern Mexico, carried on an extensive correspondence with librarians, missionaries, and others interested in the subject, and examined such authorities, printed and manuscript, as were accessible. The results of these researches were embodied in a work entitled Proof-sheets of a Bibliography of the Languages Of' the North American Indians, the full title and description of which will be found on page 403 herewith; The amount of material Obtained was so much greater than was anticipated that the volume proved cumbersome, and it was concluded to change the style of publication and to issue a series Of bibliographies each relating to one of the more prominent groups of our native languages. Consequently but few Of the Proof-sheets were distributed, and these were confined to persons who it was thought were in a position to aid in the preparation of the new series. New jour neys were undertaken, the national libraries of England, France, and a few of the larger private collections in both of these countries were consulted, many of the libraries of this country and Canada were re visited, other correspondents were enlisted, much additional material was acquired, and the publication Of the separate bibliographies was begun.
Of this series four numbers have been published, relating respectively, in order Of publication, to the Eskimauan, Siouan, Iroquoian, and Muskogean families; this, the Algonquian, is the fifth, and the next in contemplation includes the languages belong ing to the Athapascan stock.
