Cyclopaedia Bibliographica: A Library Manual
A Library Manual of Theological and General Literature, and Guide to Books for Authors, Preachers, Students and Literary Men. Analytical, Bibliographical, and Biographical (1854, 10 Volumes)
A phenomenal, theological, bibliographical resource of staggering comprehensiveness. The first section of this extremely rare set is a huge bibliography, organized by authors alphabetically. Most known Biblical and theological publications, to the author's day, are listed. The second part is a topical bibliography categorizing items under the headings of Universal Knowledge, Theology (including the major commentaries, sermons, articles and studies for just about every verse in the Bible), a listing of Scripture texts (Hebrew, Greek and Latin) and an extensive index. The Morning Post calls this massive work "the most copious, accurate, and well-arranged catalogue of works in theological and general literature which has as yet been published." And Bell's Messenger states, "No clergyman or antiquarian should think it needless to possess a copy of this work. It will smooth many a day's hard toil, by diminishing the labour of research, pointing as it does, in an instant to works which it might have taken weeks, if not months, or years, to search after."
