Short summary:  Discussion on catalogues made by amateurs in medicine who do not have training in bibliographical or classification work, one example is the Storer catalogue, which is not very good, and another example is the Catalogue of Incunabula published from Boston Medical Library a few years ago - these catalogues are nevertheless extremely useful and even a catalogue of books should be a little personal; the undersigned will be at the International Neurological Congress in Paris September 5-10 1949 and he would like to visit the addressee at that occasion
