By correlating the Fernie et al. (1995) electronic database on Cepheids with the "resolved variable catalog'' of the HIPPARCOS mission and the SIMBAD catalog one finds that there are 280 Cepheids in the HIPPARCOS catalog. By removing W Vir stars (Type II Cepheids), double-mode Cepheids, Cepheids with an unreliable solution in the HIPPARCOS catalog, and stars without photometry, it turns out that there are 248 classical Cepheids left, of which 32 are classified as first-overtone pulsators. For these stars the literature was searched for I-band and near-infrared data. Intensity-mean I-band photometry on the Cousins system is derived for 189 stars, and intensity-mean JHK data on the Carter system is presented for 69 stars.
