As general editor of the sixteenth edition of Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations , to be published by Little, Brown and Company, Boston, in 1992, I’m seeking contemporary material, especially (but not exclusively) from popular culture and mass media, that has passed into the language. I’d appreciate receiving photocopies of printed material along with verifiable information about sources and attributions.

We hope you enjoy our work.
