Scope and Content

From its earliest days to July 1912 the University of California, Berkeley library recorded its accessions in a series of registers, recording the source of each item and the cost thus providing a glimpse into the beginnings of collection-building of the library. Entries are in accession number order, which was also written in each item. It is not know how later accessions were recorded, other than being noted in the official shelflist card file.
Volumes 2-25 appear to have been printed expressly for the library; each volume number is printed on the spine, and the columns within each ledger size volume are labeled for the specific information needed by the library.
