Short Title List of Books published before 1800
“C”

There are two types of entries linked from this page. A “Catalog Entry” is based on an entry created for the title in the original card catalog, and following the cataloging rules of the time. A “Bibliographic Description” is a full description of the book and its composition. Such descriptions are based on the rules of description laid out in Fredson Bowers’ Principles of Bibliographical Principles (first published in 1949), and Philip Gaskells’ A New Introduction to Bibliography (1972). These entries also include other useful information, such as references, subject keywords, physical location, and other locations within California.
