Henry Harrisse was on the faculty of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the 1850s. A man of keen intelligence, thirst for knowledge, and thorough-going scholarship, he was author of ninety-one separate titles. This is another of them, hitherto unpublished, which was found in the Manuscripts Division of the New York Public Library. It is a revealing essay on the organization, regulation, and management of a literary institution.

Originally published in 1947.
