The 1838 volume of A Checklist of American Imprints further extends the bibliographical efforts begun by Charles Evans and continued by Shaw and Shoemaker.

It incorporates the theses done at Catholic University, which continue the publication program of the Historical Records Survey. Arrangement is by author.
