Books (Except Literature) Printed After The Final Dates of *KB-*KE (Billings *KF)

This class, while large, is too miscellaneous to permit detailed description. Among the rare and valuable Americana of dates later than provided for in the classifications *KB-*KE is a group of more than 520 pieces issued by southern presses during the Confederacy; approximately 360 items are official publications (described below with *KR materials) and 160 are unofficial publications, including textbooks, almanacs, newspapers, and periodicals, but excluding sheet music, the publications of fraternal organizations, and religious publications. These holdings are checked in a copy of Marjorie Lyle Crandall's Confederate Imprints (1955).
