ANNOUNCEMENTS OF FALL PUBLICATIONS.
In accordance with its custom at this season of the year, THE DIAL presents below a classified list of the books announced for fall and winter publication in the United States. In the preparation of this list, great care has been taken to make it accurate and comprehensive, but the indefiniteness of the information received in some cases has made classification difficult, and it is possible that a few titles may uot be found under the heading first consulted. The list of juveniles, which is a long one, will not be printed until the next issue. Including that list, nearly five hundred titles will be given, representing about fifty publishers. From this list new editions which are to be mere reproductions of earlier volumes have been excluded, but all reprints that are to appear in new form — as to typography, illustration, notes, or editing -- are included, and, in case the text of a work has been rewritten or extensively revised, it is placed in its appropriate category as a new book. Experience has shown us that this list is appreciated by our readers generally, and that it has been found especially useful by librarians and others who need to know what books are in prospect in order to know what to buy. In view of these facts, we feel justified in giving the list the extended space that it requires. Embracing, as it does, the bulk of the important publications of the year, it is of course full of interest for the student of our current literature and its tendencies. Some more extended analyses and summaries of the list, with comments on features of especial interest, would be desirable, but lack of space compels us to leave this task to the reader, who will find here abundant material for his generalizations and reflections. The list as a whole is a good one,-creditable alike to American publishers and to the public from which their support and encouragement is derived.
