The program will be given under the sponsorship of
the Norman P. Scala Memorial Fund, part of a
bequest to the Library from the late Dr. Scala for
promoting interest in the music of his father. Francis
Scala. officially the first Leader of the U.S Marine
Band from 1855 to 1872, and in the music of his era.
The Library also received from Dr. Scala a large col-
lection of music, mostly manuscript band parts, and
memorabilia belonging to Francis Scala. The collec-
tion contains valuable documents concerning the
music played by the Manne Band in Washington
during Scala's long association with it, among them
music for social occasions, many of which were
undoubtedly held at the White House, pieces for con-
certs, and numerous marches, including those for
funerals and some especially composed by Scala for
Presidential inaugurations. Among the memorabilia is
a calling card signed by Abraham Lincoln, one of the
Presidents under whom Scala served.
Music from the Scala Collection will be heard on
Dr. Fennell's program, together with pieces from the
Brass Band Journal and the Port Royal band books.
The latter have become well-known through the
recordings made by Dr Fennell with the Eastman
Wind Ensemble, of which he is the former director.

The Library of Congress received in the mail last
week a brown paper parcel, postmarked in New York.
containing a dozen prints from Direr to Picasso-
that may have been stolen from the Library's collec-
tions. Other libraries and museums, including the
Nailonal Gallery of Art and the Cooper-Hewint
Mueunm. received similar parcels. The Federal Bureau
rf' Investigation has the case under investigation
The immediate result of the discovery of these
losses. like that which followed a rash of manuscript
thefts from institutions throughout the country some

'.ear, ago. will be a tightening of security in reading
rooms and increased surveillance of readers.
The Inoss it these prints and the theft in the

sciousness on the part of all staff members. While
Special Police have specific responsibility for security,

Careful inspection of all materials carried out of
Library buildings continues to be important. The

The Library of Congress is making steady progress
in cataloging the early imprints in its collections
According to Margaret Bingham Stillwells The
Beginning of the World of Books, a recently pub-
lished chronological bibliography of early imprints
from 1450 to 1469. 102 of the recorded imprints
from this period are held by North American h-
braries. And, according to Frederick R. Goffs Third
Census of Incunabula, 46 of these 102 imprints are
located in the Library of Congress. Further investiga-
non reveals that Library of Congress printed cards are
available for 15 of tile 46. Disregarding three items
represented only by single leaves, there remain 28
items awaiting cataloging
At this time the earliest uncataloged book in the
Library of Congress is Matthias de Cracovia. Diaklgus
raiionis ei tonsciennlae de frequenti usu coitmmuni(Uis
[Mainz. in the type of the 1460 Catholicrn (Johann
Gutenberg'). 1460'1]. which is listed as No. 35 in the
Stillwell book
The Library's two full-time rare book catalogers
currently are able to devote much of their attention
to 15th-century books, and it should be possible for
them to catalog all of the pre-1470 mprints com-

paratively soon. The far greater number of uncata-
loged books, however, punted from 1470-1500 pose
a more formidable task. Exact figures are not at hand,
but of 5.628 incunabula copies in the Library of Con-
gress only a fraction have received other than
temporary cataloging. That fraction consists mainly
of about 570 incunabula in the Rosenwald Collection
and the duplicate copies cataloged along with them.
An illustration of the value of the current catalog-
ing activity is the discovery, as recently as September
20. of a hitherto unnoticed incunabulum bound with
another early work in the Law Library's collection:
Andreae, Joannes, Novella super VI Decretalium.
(Venice. Philippus Pincius, 1 Mar. 1499). The work
was found in time to be registered in a forthcoming
supplement to Mr. Goffs Third Census. The catalog-
ing of these early books is done according to a special
set of rules (i.e. Chapter 8 of the Anglo-American
Cataloging Rules) and is of such a nature that it can-
not be hurried. Nevertheless, it seems worthwhile to
report that small but determined progress is being

Effective October I, the Library's Photoduplication
Service adopted a new schedule of rates for supplying
photocopies of materials in the Library's collections.
The new price list reflects the conclusions of a
detailed cost study of every type of photoreproduc-
tion prepared by the Service. For some items, the rate
increase is substantial, while for others the rates
remain unchanged. The new schedule represents the
first change in rates since October 1, 1965, and is a
result of rising costs of materials, equipment, and
The Photoduplication Service operates on a revolv-
ing fund established by the Rockfeller Foundation in
1938; terms of the Rockfeller grant stipulate that the
charges for photoduplicates defray the cost of per-
sonnel, material, equipment, and related services. For
the past three years, the Service has operated at a
The new rate structure applies to orders dated after
September 30. All estimates computed since Sep-
tember I also reflect the new rates; estimates made
prior to September I will be honored for a period of
six months.

National Science Foundation, this volume completes
the revision of the Center's first directory published
in 1965 under the subtitle Physical Sciences, Biolog-
ical Sciences, Engineering. A separate volume pub-
lished in 1971 updated the physical sciences and

register of information resources maintained by the

mately fourfold increase in the coverage of the pres-
ent volume over that published in 1965 reflects the
growth of the register during the intervening years.
The entries incorporate the address, telephone
number, areas of interest, holdings, publications, and
information services of a wide variety of organiza-
tions capable of meeting specific information needs,
including libraries, information centers, professional
societies, universities, industrial firms willing to
extend their information services beyond their own
organization, and Federal, State, and local Govern-
ment offices. A subject index is included. Like the
1971 volume, this directory was produced by
computer-based photocomposition. The entries were
selected by machine from the "NRC Publications"

New Latin America Guide Printed
( Latin America in Basic Historical Collections: A
\- Working Guide, by Russell H. Bartley and Stewart L.
SWagner has been published by Hoover Institution
Press of Stanford University (California. $9.50). The
guide is designed primarily to acquaint graduate
students, professors, and researchers with the ever-
increasing Latin American resources available in
major archival and library depositories throughout
the world. It complements and updates information
appearing in earlier works, such as Ronald Hilton's
Handbook of Hispanic Source Materials and Research


October 6. 1972

Organizations in the United States (1956); A. Curtis
Wilgus' Source Materials and Special Collections
Dealing with Latin America in Libraries of the United
States (1934). and Robert P. Haro's Latin American
Research in United States and Canada: A Guide and
Directory (1971).
Descriptions of the Latin American holdings of 170
institutional libraries in the United States, two insti-
tutions in Canada, and major archival and library
depositories in 15 Latin American countries represent
the work's principal contribution. Under the section
"Other Depositories" are brief notes on Latin Ameri-
can materials in library depositories in Australia,
Japan. Philippine Islands. Puerto Rico, and the West
While the guide is impressive in its institutional
coverage, its reports on library holdings at some insti-
tutions are rather uneven. Brazil and Mexico receive
broader coverage than do Argentina, the West Indies,
and Central America put together. This is accounted
for by the availability of published sources on
Mexican and Brazilian archival and library deposi-
tories and the incompleteness of available data on
other areas, as noted in the authors' introduction.
Enhancing the guide's usefulness is a section listing
the important bibliographies. guides, and other
resource works for each country and geographical
area covered: Anglo America. Latin America, Europe,
Australia. Japan. and the Philippine Islands. The
guide also contains two appendixes. Appendix A is
devoted to "Library Acquisitions Programs Relative
to Latin America." which describes the Farmington
Plan. the Latin America Cooperative Acquisitions
Program sponsored by Stechert-Hafner Co. of New
York. Centro Inter-Americano de Libros Academicos
(CILA) in Mexico City. a clearing house for Latin
American university publications: and the Texas Con-
sortium for Microfilming Mexico Archival Resources.
Appendix B provides information on "Social Science
Data Archives" and lists seven institutions which have
machine readable data depositories for cross-national
and cross-cultural research relating to Latin America.
The guide provides much valuable information for
both the student and researcher interested in Latin
American history. The volume can be obtained from
the Hoover Institution Press. Stanford, California
