The mode of obtaining admission may be learnt from the printed Regulations, which will be found below; and if in any case difficulty should be experienced by individuals in procuring the necessary introductions, assistance will, on application, be cheerfully afforded them by the Librarian, who is resident on the premises.
The first Catalogue, comprising the united collections of Dr. Williams and Dr. Bates, was published, as already stated, in 1727. Another Catalogue was published in 1801, embodying all the additions made to the Library up to that period. A new Catalogue having been rendered necessary by the great augmentation of the Library, the following volumes have been compiled. The various alterations which have been made in the form and arrangements of the Catalogue need not be stated in detail. Suffice it to mention, that the classification under the several divisions of sizes and languages has been altogether abandoned, and that the whole of the books have been arranged under one alphabet for the greater facility of reference.
An important addition has been made on the present occasion, by the compilation of an entirely new Catalogue, devoted exclusively to Tracts and Pamphlets, of which the Library contains a large and, in many respects, a curious and valuable collection. This forms the Second Volume; the First Volume being altogether devoted to the larger books. To the First Volume has been subjoined an Appendix, comprising the books added to the Library during the time the Catalogue has been in preparation.
