A second compilation of books about Montana follows the Centennial year of the Montana Territory. The first bibliography was compiled by Miss Rita McDonald and was called, "Books About Montana and the West."

"Montana As It Is And Was" is issued as an aid to public and school libraries in the selection of books about Montana for the general collection. All of the books that are included were in print at the time this publication was printed. Additions to the bibliography will appear regularly in the monthly MONTANA NEWSLETTER and MONTANA LIBRARIES which is published currently by the Montana State Library.

The author, title, publisher, date and classification number are given for each entry. Addresses are furnished for publishers not listed in Books in Print. The exception to this is the Montana Historical Society, 6th and Roberts, Helena, Montana, 59601, which appears throughout the bibliography as Mont. Hist. Soc.
