The Reference Catalogue of Current Literature

The Reference Catalogue of Current Literature was a catalog of books offered by British publishers at specific points in the 19th and 20th centuries. Published in London by J. Whitaker, it included indexes of UK books in print as well as collated copies of various publisher catalogs, which often took up multiple volumes.

Publication History

The Reference Catalogue of Current Literature first appeared in 1874, and then appears to have been issued every 3 or 4 years (with a longer gap in the early 20th century due to World War I). The catalogue appears to eventually have been taken over by R. W. Bowker and renamed British Books in Print.
