Brackets. Information in brackets has been obtained from a source other than the book itself. A date with a question mark in brackets indicates the date is estimated.
Titles. In some cases, the title on the title page differs from the title page on the cover; sometimes the spine of the book has still another title. When more than one title appears, the first one listed is taken from the title page; this is the title librarians use in cataloging. Titles taken from other locations in the book are so designated.
Facts of publication. Because some of the facts of publication may be missing, n.p. is used to indicate that no place of publication is given, and n.d. indicates no date appears or has been estimated. A company name may be the publisher of the book, it may be the printer of the book, or it may be a company that handles both functions; the last two are unusual facts to give in a book.
Description. Cover sizes are stated in centimeters (cm), with the vertical measure appearing before the horizontal. If only one number is listed, it is the vertical dimension.
References. If a book has been mentioned in an earlier publication, that reference is noted.
