[This enormous compilation--the above volume must contain more than 20,000 titles-brings up to date this first volume, which was published in 1896. It deals chiefly with labour and with social questions connected with labour, and does not attempt to cover the whole field of economics. The literature of all countries is classified, and the method of classification and the cross-references seem admirably adapted to make it as useful as possible to a student. Articles in magazines and journals are fully catalogued. The volume should form a valuable work of reference for libraries.]

Next he describes the data in each branch of statistics and how they are obtained ; and also an account of the methods of compilation and the pitfalls attending the compiler and the student. Finally he gives an account, by way of illustration, of some of the principal facts established in each branch of statistics and of the principal controversies and questions which the statistics have been in fact employed to discuss.
