—I have the honor to present the accompanying Catalogue of additions made to the Library of the Association by donations, exchanges and subscription during the past year. The Catalogue shows that since my last report 232 distinct titles have been added, exclusive of a number of Transactions, Reports of Boards of Health and Medical Journals, foreign as well as domestic, not previously received and catalogued. The average yearly increase of the Library from 1882 to 1885, the date of my last report, has been at the rate of about 120 distinct titles, so that there has been during the last year a gain of nearly 100 per cent. in new titles. The Library now contains 2491 titles, representing about 7030 volumes. Owing to the absence of funds for binding, there are at present about 300 unbound volumes of periodicals, transactions, etc., on the shelves of the Library.Respectfully
