Excerpt from Perkins Institution and Massachusetts School for the Blind, Vol. 1: Special Reference Library of Books Relating to the Blind

The conception of a special library of books relating to the blind, for the Perkins Institution, originated with Dr. Howe and the acquisition of books of this character was begun towards the close of his administration. To Mr. Anagnos, his great successor, the idea appealed so strongly that he immediately set about increasing the little collection begun under Dr. Howe, and all through the years of his administration he was constantly adding rare and valuable books in many languages, until now this library is the largest in America, and in all the world is second only to the splendid collection in Vienna.

In the securing of large and valuable additions to this library Mr. Anagnos was vastly indebted to Herr Dr. Alex ander Mel], Director of the Royal Imperial Institution for the Blind at Vienna, to whom, in the name of Mr. Anagnos and in his memory, grateful acknowledgment is here made.

A Bibliography of these books has long been in prepara tion under Mr. Anagnos' own eye, and this first instalment is now given to the public as he had planned, in the hope and confidence that students of the subject especially, and the friends of the blind generally, may delve deep in the mine that is here, uncover much precious treasure, and in the mint of the human heart stamp it into helpfulness, the coin current of the Realm of God.

Additional acknowledgments are due to Mr. William B. Wait, Principal Emeritus of the New York Institution forthe Blind, to Mr. John F. Bledsoe, Superintendent of the Maryland School for the Blind, at Baltimore, for valuable help and suggestions; and to Miss Wiggin and Miss Don nelly of the Library Department of Simmons College, Bos ton, for their careful criticism and advice to our Library in arranging the material for this section of the Bibliography.
