LINGUISTICS (MS 1135-1142)
Worksheets for a proposed "Book of Divisions, or Index raisonee of Ideas and Words." This work was to have served the double purpose of replacing Roget's Thesaurus and of providing an all-in-one encyclopaedia. The work-sheets contain elaborate classifications of the arts and sciences, the fountain head of which is the three categories. In connection with possible publication, CSP corresponded with B. E. Smith of the Century Company. See CSP - B. E. Smith correspondence.
