In the compilation of this series of catalognes the aim has been to include in each bibliography everything, printed or in manuscript, relating to the family of languages to which it is devoted: books, pamphlets, articles in magazines, tracts, serials, etc., and such reviews and announcements of publications as seemed worthy of notice.

In the index entries of the tribal names the compiler has adopted that spelling which seemed to him the best.
