ABSTRACT

In 1946 a list of books published in the years 1930-1944 appeared under the title given above. The original purpose was to acquaint foreign countries with the scientific literature published in the United States, but the compilation proved equally valuable in this country. The present supplement covers the years 1945-1948 and evaluates about 2,600 books. The titles for medicine and its branches occupy approximately 130 pages, and so comprise almost one third of the list.

The books are selected on the basis of merit and represent the most important and useful works of the period. The nature of the contents of each book is noted and a brief critical statement is often included, in addition to the usual bibliographic information. The titles are arranged according to broad subject classifications, but a detailed subject index makes it possible for one to locate specific items easily. There is also an author index
