HE publication of this catalogue is intended to supply a long felt want to all Catholic patrons of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Imbued with the idea of doing some special work in connection with their regular bi-weekly meetings, the members of the Roger B. Taney Council of the Catholic Benevolent Legion decided unanimously to lend their best efforts in compiling and editing this catalogue with the sole desire of fostering good and wholesome literature among our Catholic Sunday School children, and of giving an up-to-date list of works suitable for Catholics, found in the aforesaid library.

Our grateful thanks are extended to Dr. Bernard C. Steiner, Librarian of the Enoch Pratt Free Library, Mr. Louis H. Dielman, Miss Catherine Codd, and others of the Library staff, who were untiring in their efforts to bring this work to completion. Some sixteen years ago, Rev. John F. O'Donovan, S. J., issued a catalogue of Catholic literature, that list has outlived its usefulness. Today there are upwards of five thousand (5000) volumes in the Library, suitable for all Catholic patrons. In compiling this catalogue, we have included books on subjects in which no question of creed arreligion is involved; such as works in the Industrial and Fine Arts, Games, Sports, etc. These lists are limited to books recently accessioned, and a few which are in demand. This has been done to give patrons an idea of the resources of the Library.

His Eminence, James Cardinal Gibbons, has given his earnest endorsement to the publication of this catalogue, and has recommended its immediate introduction in to all Catholic Sunday Schools.

Several clergymen at the request of Right Rev. Owen B. Corrigan, have carefully examined the list of books and heartily approve of their introduction into their Sunday Schools.

In addition to the catalogue prepared by Rev. J. F. O'Donovan, S. J., helpful information was secured from the Catholic Reading List of the Chicago Public Library, the catalogue of Catholic Topics and Authors in the Public Library, Washington, D. C., "Books by Catholic Authors" in the Carnegie Library, Pittsburgh, Pa., and List of Books suitable for Parish School Libraries issued by the Catholic Educational Association.

It is to be hoped that every Catholic family will secure a copy of this catalogue, and that it will serve as a guide to good reading, and a more frequent patronage of our great Enoch Pratt Free Library.

My Dear Father Wade:

In answer to your request, I am glad to have the opportunity of renewing my approval of the good work of Taney Council No. 716, C. B. L., in preparing the Catalogue of Books in the Pratt Library, which we may recommend to our children and others.

The plan has been put in working order under the auspices of S. Gregory's Council No. 122, C. B. L., and the Sisters of the School who look after the distribution of the books are enthusiastic in their praise of the plan.

If these few words of commendation result in the extension of your good work, I shall be amply repaid for the writing of them.

One of the greatest benefits we can bestow on our children is to direct them in their reading, so that they may avoid the many hurtful books that might otherwise fall into their hands.

Very sincerely,


Bishop of Macra. V. G.
