Series description

The Mythology of All Races is a series of thirteen volumes covering mythology world-wide, originally published between 1916 and 1932.  It has been reissued at least twice.

Some volumes covered mythology for only one group, others covered two groups which might be completely unrelated and be treated by different authors.   The volumes contain numerous illustrations, usually in black-and-white.   The thirteenth volume is a detailed index to the other twelve; they are not separately indexed.

The Library of Congress cataloged the individual volumes (except the index) under the name of the mythology, but also  cataloged the entire thirteen volume set.   In addition, the individual volumes are sometimes cataloged under the general title Mythology of All Races with either the name of the mythology(s) or the volume number (in either Arabic or Roman numerals) to distinquish them.To add to the confusion, the individual volumes are sometimes cataloged under the general editor Louis Herbert Gray, rather than the individual authors.  

Good luck trying to pull all the variant catalog records together into works!

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
