" When found, make a note of."-CAPTAIN CUTTLE.
EXTRACT FROM PREFACE. SIX YEARS having elapsed since, following the example of other Joint Stock Companies—for what is Notes AND QUERIES but a Joint Stock Company for the promotion of historical truth ?- we rentiered to our subscribers an account of our stewardship, we have called in once more the assistance of our highly skilful literary accountant, and in the following pages sub:rit to public inspection his balance sheet, which will, we trust, show most satisfactorily how great has been the gain to historical, biographical, literary, antiquarian, and philological knowledge in the last twelve volumes of NOTES AND QUERIES.
The late Lord Brougham, whose name can never be mentioned by us without grateful acknowledgment for many unsolicited acts of friendship, was once good enough to declare to us his opinion that “NOTES AND QUERIES was most useful, most valuable, and made ten times more so by its admirable Indexes.” Lord Brougham was perfectly right. Intrinsically valuable as the contents of the many volumes of NOTES AND QUERIES must be for the information they contain, they would be compiratively useless but for the ready means which the Indexes afford of turning the information stored up in them to instant account. Without such Index they would form
"One glaring cliaos and wild heap of wit." But with such an Index as is here set before the reader, which well deserves Bayle's definition of an Index, “ the soul of a book," the huge confusion springs into regularity and order, and the curious masses of information are at once available to the student.
How vast and how varied these masses of information are, one little fact will serve to show. In the series of Indexes, of which the present is the third, there will be found nearly EIGHTY THOUSAND ARTICLES, many of them furnishing references to the best authorities on the special subjects to which they refer.
The First Series of Notes AND QUERIES, in Twelve Volumes, was brought to a close at the end of 1855, by the issue of a GENERAL Index. Of the utility of this Index, The Times spoke as follows on June 28, 1856 :
“The utility of such a volume, not only to men of letters, but to well-informed readers generally, is too obvious to require proof, more especially when it is remembered that many of these ref rences (between 30,000 and 10,000) are to articles which them elves point out the best sources of information upon their respective subjects."
A SECOND SERIES of Twelve Volumes was completed at the end of 1861, by the publication of a similar GENERAL Index, of which he Times of November 8, 181,2, remarks :
" It contains about 30,000 references to articles written by some of our best scholars upon every conceivable subject, from predestination to slea silk, for in the pages of this Errrybody's Common-place Book no subject comes winiss. . It is a book which will be found must useful to those whu pussess NOTES AND QUERIES, and indispensable to the searchers after the curiosities of literature.'"
