on hand. Opinions of the Press. “We acknowledge, with much pleasure, that 'Book.Prices Current’is now the most carefully edited work of its kind published in this or any other country.”- theneum.

“With the present season of book-auctions, “Book-Prices Current reaches its 25th year, and it is, we believe, the only purely bibliographical periodical in existence which has continued to appear for a quarter of a century regularly, uninterruptedly, and with a promptitude which is a credit to those who produce it and a boon to those who use it. It has had many rivals and imitators, both at home and abroad; but the only effect of this rivalry has been many improvements in matters of detail.”The Times, Sept. 29th, 1911.

“It exhibits all those good qualities of accurate record which have raised the publication to such a position of universal esteem.”--Publishers' Circular.

Uniform with BOOK-PRICES CURRENT,

TEN VOLUMES OF BOOK-PRICES CURRENT, 1887-1896 Constituting a Reference List of Subjects and, incidentally,

a Key to Anonymous and pseudonymous Literature. Demy Svo., bound in buckram. Price One Guinea net.

“If money, as Anthony Trollope neatly put it, be the reward of labour, too much is certainly not asked for the labour which has .marshalled into order a manuscript involving 33,000 distinct titles and considerably over 500,000 numerals.' The typographical arrangement of the volume will receive praise from those who can understand the difficulties of the printers' task.”. The Guardian.
