Catalog is an American spelling of the English word catalogue, which comes from the French word catalogue, which comes from the Latin word catalogus, which comes from the Greek word katalogos, which comes from two Greek words, legein (“to say, count”) and kata (“down; completely”).
So there you have a catalog of the etymology of the word catalog, which “counts down” or “says completely” the word’s roots.
And here you have a catalog of our Fall 2015 books, which “counts down” or “says completely” the exciting new titles coming your way soon:
We can’t wait to show off these beautiful new books — so we won’t! Next week we’ll give you some sneak peeks at our forthcoming titles, so stay tuned.
