PREFACE.

BEFORE the British Goods were sent to Paris, a Catalogue of the proposed Exhibitors' Names was published, which was arranged according to the system of Classification adopted by the Imperial Commission, and a Rotation Number was given to every Exhibitor. This was found of great service in the transport, receipt, and arrangement of the Goods.

[ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors]

The French authorities, however, according to their own views, have preferred to rearrange this Catalogue, change the classification of the Exhibitors, placing them alphabetically in Sections, and assign different Numbers. As it would have been inconvenient to have had the French International Catalogue in one form, and a British edition in another, the latter has been changed to agree with the French version, except in those cases where Exhibitors' names have been removed in consequence of resignation. The French numbering has been adopted, and the original Rotation Numbers have been placed at the end of the British entries. Consequently, if any British Exhibitors find their goods unexpectedly in some new places, as for instance, in Class 2, they will bear in mind that the responsibility rests wholly with the French authorities, and that the British authorities have simply followed their arrangements.

The greater detail which is to be found in some of the French entries arises from additional information furnished direct by Exhibitors to the Imperial Commission.

[ocr errors]

Names of Exhibitors are sometimes repeated, where their goods belong to two or more Classes. Thus, Messrs. Crosskill's are entered in Class 3, No. 73, as exhibiting Agricultural Tools ; in Class 5, because they exhibit a Cart; and in Class 6, on account of a Reaping Machine. These entries are not re-numbered, but have * before them.

Exhibitors are requested to communicate any errors of names, address, &c, direct to the Printers, Messrs. Clowes & Sons, Stamford-street, Blackfriars, London.
