about £28 ; now £58 has to be paid. In 1894 " The Story of the Glittering Plain,” issued on May 8, 1891, could be got for about £5; the present price is about £28 and has been £33. Not all, or indeed many, of the Kelmscott Press books have been so fortunate as these, but all, with rare exceptions, are worth much more now than they were twelve months ago. I am often asked what I think the future of these books will be; whether they are yet at their highest point. I can only say, for the benefit of any who choose to regard my opinion in this respect as worth considering, that another five years will see many of the present prices doubled at least, and all of them much enhanced. Time will show whether this be true or the reverse, or only partly true. rate, the assertion is not made recklessly, but based upon arguments which appear to me to be sound and conclusive.
