Catalogues and Bibliographies:

There are  a number of commercial organisations like publishers, booksellers, distributors and printers  whose  main activity is to bring  out  publications  about publications with a business motive. These publications are brought out at periodic intervals, i.e., regular periodicity, and' while some of these are priced publications, some are sent free to institutions and individuals either on request or in anticipation of a demand. Their coverage may be national and/or inter-national. Some of the best examples are: 

Book Trade Periodicals 

Cumulative Book Index: A World List of Books in English Language.  1898 - (Monthly with quarterly,  half-yearly and annual cumulations) Fl. W. Wilson, New  York. Being one of the comprehensive book selection tools and the production cost being consider-ably  high, it is not available on a regular subscription basis, but subscription is charged on a service basis. 

American Book Publishing Record. (Monthly,  covers American Publications). R.R. Booker, New York. Cumulated annually, with entries arranged subject-wise. Useful for preparing ad hoc bibliographies.
