The (partially) annotated bibliography is divided into four categories:
  1. Bibliography of Bibliographies
  2. Biography: Dictionaries, Indexes, and Bibliographies
  3. Encyclopedias, Chronologies, and Other Information Sources
  4. Guides to Manuscript Resources and Special Collections
Each entry in the bibliography is identified as to national scope, i.e., whether it is specifically on American history or whether coverage is more general. Two points are warranted:
  1. Many of the American sources are not limited to the 19th century. For both American and general works, sometimes there may be relatively few entries for the 19th century because little relevant work was done in that time period. Nevertheless, these reference sources can be useful for what 19th century information they do include, and, of course, can also aid with earlier or continuing aspects of the topic under investigation as well as for other subjects of possible interest to the user.
  2. Many of the general works do not take heed of a national approach to the history of science and therefore identifying the American entries in a bibliography, for example, may require a degree of prior knowledge and/or persistence in scanning the content. The annotations ordinarily are descriptive of the structure and special features of the book rather than summaries or critiques of the content.
