Excerpt from The Ridpath Library of Universal Literature: In Twenty-Five Volumes; A Biographical and Bibliographical Summary of the World's Most Eminent Authors, Including the Choicest Extracts and Masterpieces From Their Writings, Comprising the Best Features of Many Celebrated Compilations; Index

I have come to regard a book as curtailed Of half its value if it has not a pretty full index. - binney.

For a work of such wide scope as The Library of Universal Literature a comprehensive index is in dispensable. Though the work is encyclopedic in Character, and for this reason arranged alphabetically for convenient reference to authors, it is more than an encyclopedia of writers. Were the articles limited to biographies this alphabetical arrangement would answer the purpose Of the most exacting student.
