C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  Time is of more value than type, and the wear and tear of the temper than an extra page of index.
R. H. Busk.    
  If a book has no index or good table of contents, it is very useful to make one as you are reading it.
Dr. Watts.    
  I wish you would add an index rerum, that when the reader recollects any incident he may easily find it.
Dr. Johnson.    
  I certainly think that the best book in the world would owe the most to good index, and the worst book, if it had but a single good thought in it, might be kept alive by it.
Horace Binney.    
  So essential did I consider an index to be to every book, that I proposed to bring a bill into Parliament to deprive an author who publishes a book without an index of the privilege of copyright, and, moreover, to subject him for his offence to a pecuniary penalty.
Lord Campbell.
