makes and marked by vivid delineations of character.

TRUTH vs. FICTION. 


The pretence of Esres & Laurtar that they have obtained the 
injunction of the United States Circuit Court against any publication 
with the word “Chatterbox” has imposed upon the public long 
enough. 

The injunction they did obtain was in these words: “It is also 
further adjudged and decreed that a perpetual injunction be issued in 
this suit against the said defendants, BELFORD, CLARKE & CO., re- 
straining them, . .°. their servants, . . . and all persons 
claiming or holding under or through them, or either of them, from 
it is printing, stamping, marking, attaching, or afhxing said name or word 
= ‘Chatterbox’ in or upon books of a juvenile character OF THE 
- GENERAL APPEARANCE, STYLE, AND MANNER OF 
| COVER AND STYLE OF PRINTING WHICH ARE UPON 
and. fF THE COMPLAINANTS’ SAID BOOKS, . .  . and from 
Hon, simulating the appearance and style of printing of the complainants’ 
‘Chatterbox ;’ and from selling, offering for sale, and from presenting 
to the public juvenile publications printed IN SUCH STYLE, and with 
the use of the title ‘Chatterbox,’ IN SUCH MANNER as to lead the 
"the public to believe that they are the publications of the complainants.” 
1po Precisely the same injunction was granted against FRANK LEs.LIg, 


nd no other or different one has ever been obtained by them. 


| My books do not resemble in any of the respects mentioned 
ih s . the publications of Esres & LAurRIAT. 

| | That the public may know what kind of men Estes & LAuRIAT 
rica are, I give the following extract from the testimony of Mr. EstTes 


erks, in their suit against me : 


rbid- Cross-Interrogatory No. 22 
Was not the REPRINT of the “Chatterbox” of 1878 MADE BY 
YOU in a form CALCULATED TO DECEIVE THE PUBLIC? 
Ans, Upon reflection I should say it undoubtedly was. 
Cross-Int. 228. And was so intended ? 
s Ans, YES.

BOOKS FOR THINKERS. 


The Labor Movement in 


America. 
By Prof. Ricuarp T. ELy. 
This book is the result of several years’ work on the 
art of Prof. Ely, who is an acknowledged authority, both 
in Europe and America, on economic and social topics. 
It is the most complete historical sketch yet published of 
the origin and growth both of Socialism and of labor or- 
ganizations. No pains have been spared to secure accu- 
racy. Professor Ely has collected for years books, pam- 
hiets, labor newspapers,constitutions of trades-unions,and 
ike material, with this in view; and, during the prepara- 
tion of this book, he has travelled several thousand miles, 
visiting Communistic settlements and leading industrial 
centres, and forming the acquaintances of labor leaders. 
His picture of the present condition of the labor move 
ment may be relied upon as taken from life.

A CHARMING STOR) 


The Marquis of Penalta. 


(MARTA Y MARIA. 


3y Don ARMANDO PALACIO VALDEs. — [2m 


$1.50. 


‘* The literature is delightful ; full of charming humor 
tender pathos, the liveliest sympathy with nature, t 
keenest knowledge of human nature, and a style whos 
charm makes itself felt through the shadows of a strangt 
speech. It is the story of two sisters—daughters 0! t 
chief family in a Spanish seaport city. Maria, who passes 
from the romance of literature to the romance of religion, 
and abandons home, father, and lover, to become tx 
spouse of Heaven; and Marta, who remains to consok 
all these for her loss. Wedo not remember a character 
more finely studied than that of Maria. But Marta 
Marta is delicious! Nothing could be lovelier than the 
portrayal of this girl's affection for her father and mother, 
and of the tenderness that insensibly grows up betwee! 
her and her sister’s lover, left step by step in the lurch 5) 
the intending bride of Heaven. ' 5 

‘* A sketch of the story gives no idea of its situations, © 
what is more difficult and important, the atmosphere 0! 
reality in which it moves. The whole social life of the 
quiet town is skilfully suggested, and an abundance 0° 
figures pass before us, all graphically drawn, none touched 
with weakness or exaggeration.”

NOTES IN SEASON. 

Ci \RLES SCRIBNER’S SONs have in press another 
00OK lor young people entitled “ Prince Peer- 
ess: A Fairy Folk Story-Book,” by Hon. Mar- 
garet Collier. It will be illustrated by Mr. John 
Collier, the author’s brother, the famous English 
painter, whose recent portrait of Miss Huxley was 
heralded with so much praise. F 

CuppLes, UpHam & Co. have in preparation a 
new edition of ‘* Ralph Waldo Emerson, his ma- 
ternal ancestors, with some reminiscences of 
him, by his relative, David Greene Haskins, 
printed in large type and illustrated with silhou- 


€tte portraits. The first edition isall sold. They |

aldson : Jr., of Baltimore, Md. They are entitled

and bringing in picturesque, romantic, historical,

domestic, and dramatic incidents of the eventful 
years between that raid and the death of Lincoln; 
and an exquisite edition of the best known “ Es- 
says of Elia,” with over one hundred wood-cut il- 
lustrations, the work of Mr. Charles O. Murray, 
who did such clever work in illustrating Addison’s 
‘‘Sir Roger de Coverley,” some two years since. 
SCRIBNER & WELFORD have just ready a fine 
volume of interest to Americans, in ‘“ Memo- 
rials of Washington and of Mary his Mother, 
and Martha his Wife, from letters and papers of 
Robert Cary and James Sharples,’ by Major 
James Walter. The volume is illustrated with 
portraits in autotype of Washington and his wife, 
of seven prominent American women of the pe- 
riod, and of Priestly, from paintings by Sharples, 
the originals of which are now on exhibition at 
the rooms of the American Art Association, 6 
E. Twenty-third Street, New York City; also a 
portrait of Mary Washington by Middleton. 


Lee & SHEPARD have in preparation for early 
publication “‘ The Monarch of Dreams,” by Thos. 
Wentworth Higginson, a work which will attract 
attention for the reason that it indicates a rever- 
sion from the current realism to the more imagi- 
native school of Hawthorne. It is based on a 
careful study—perhaps through the Society for 
Psychical Research—of the phenomena of dream- 
ing. The hero, a lone man in a farm-house 
among the hills, is possessed with the ambition to 
connect his dreams and thus lead two separate ex- 
istences, and this he carries out with a success 
that ends in tragedy. It reminds the reader of 
Hawthorne in its style. They have also nearly 
ready ‘‘ Sketches of Western Life,” by Hon. 
Harvey Rice, of Cleveland, Ohio. 


TicKNoR & Co. publish to-day ‘‘ Sonnets from 
the Portuguese,” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 
illustrated by Ludvig Sandoe Ipsen, in an oblong 
folio (13x16 inches) bound in cloth and tree calf. 
This magnificent work has been a labor of love 
with the artist for many years, he having lavished 
upon it all the resources of his imagination and 
skill. They have also just ready ‘ Stories of Art 
and Artists,” by Clara Erskine Clement, a profusely 
illustrated work, giving a complete résumé of the 
history of art, with accounts of the various schools, 
sketches and anecdotes of the great artists, with 
portraits and reproductions of their works; 
“Songs and Satires,” a volume of poems by 
James Jeffrey Roche, well known as acontributor 
of singularly original and delicate vers de société 
to Life and other periodicals; and “ Literary 
Curiosities,” edited by Henry M. Brooks, of Sa- 
lem, being vol. vi. of the the O/den-7ime Sertes. 
The publishers have now put up this popular se- 
ries in sets, in a handsome box containing the six 
volumes. 


NOTES ON AUTHORS. 


Mrs. JENNIE E. CROLy (‘ Jennie June”), it is

publish very soon.

(he endeavor has not been to represent China from the

they appear to one moving to and froamong them. The

ing upon mission journeys and from letters written to 
iriends in England. The author thinks that in a few 
years the ‘* Chinese question * will become a great interna- 
tional problem, which it will need all the wisdom of West- 
ern countries to solve.

of Anglo-Indian life, with scenes during the 

mutiny. N. Y., Harper, 1886. 70 p. Q. (Har- 

per’s Franklin sq. lib., no. 547.) pap., 20 ¢. 

The author has the advantage of personal familiarity 
with the materials of which his novel is built up. The 
characters are natural and life-like. People are possibly a 
little tired of stories of the Indian mutiny, but when we 
once get started in this the interest is sustained without 
any lapses and the author has love-scenes, battle-scenes, 
tournaments enough for another story.

Klaus Bewer is the son of a rich Lubeck ship-owner 
At twenty-five he tires of life in his father’s counting- 
house and goes off to Sumatra. Here all he touches turns 
to money. At thirty-three he becomes homesick, winds up 
his business, and returns to Lubeck. On the evening 0! 
his return he visits a variety theatre and falls in love with 
a second-rate ballad singer, invites her to supper, and 
within a week marries her. The little details of their mar- 
ried life are brightly told. The author’s point is that the 
wife of a cultured man must have developed in the same 


social atmosphere or one similar to his own. Men do not 
require learned women, but all that is beautiful and good: 
faith, morality, love, friendship, truth, etc. Klaus 


Bewer’s brother’s wife and her sister form the contrast- 
ing picture to his Bohemian love. The book is well trans- 
lated,

ous, lazy Annie Forest, the school-favorite, will appeal to 
the affections of girl-readers. Has a very inviting cover.

Mr, Curzon, an English soldier, has travelled through

He finally reaches England to be taken away from her at 
“the king’s command.’’ He appoints an old friend her 
guardian, but directs her to live alternately with two sis- 
ters of her mother, both Irish ladies of wealth and educa- 


tion. Dorothy has been very carefully brought up, and | 


much that her cousins do jars upon her. Still she hasa 
healthy, happy life. When she is twenty-one she comes 
into a large inheritance, which she uses for building a home 
for waifs and strays. Her marriage is romantic.

W. L. Taylor furnishes all the designs for this hand- |

studies were made in England, and are most graceful and 


artistic. Many cover a whole page, other are scattered | 


through the text, or appear as appropriate head and tail 
pieces. The volume is the conventional small quarto, 


handsomely printed, on one side only of fine gilt-edge 


tinted paper.

‘The discussion begins with a description of the 
Semitic and Aryan families. The development of the 
marriage relation is then traced through Greek, Roman, 
Jewish, early Christian, Catholic, and Protestant civil- 
izations to the present day. A study is made of the family 


as an institution, divine and human, and as the basis of | 


social order. The authors then present some remarkable 
statistics as to the increase of divorce, especially in this 
country. The remedies suggested are a proper conception 
of woman’s responsibilities, a higher standard of belief 
and practice as to domestic institutions, a restoration of 
the religious basis of marriage, and uniformity of law as 
to marriage and divorce.” —JN. Y. Evening Post. Six pages 
are covered with a list of the works consulted in this com- 
pilation. Index.

The heroine makes her début at a military ball given in

learns of a boy and girl engagement between Valerie Her- 
bert and Louis Charteris ; Valerie goes to London for her 
first season and her affairs become very complicated ; she 
breaks her engagement with Louis, flirts desperately, and 
refuses several eligible offers, before she acknowledges 
that she is untrue to herself in trying to conceal her love

The Publishers’ Meckly, 


FOUNDED BY F. LEYPOLDT. 


OCTOBER 23, 1886. 











PusLisHERS are requested to furnish title-page proofs 
and advance information of books forthcoming, both for 
entry in the lists and for descriptive mention. An early 
copy of each book published should be forwarded, to in- 
sure correctness in the final entry. 

In case of business changes, notification or card should 
be immediately sent to this office for entry under “ Busi- 
ness Notes.” Newcatalogues issued will also be mention- 
ed when forwarded. 

The trade are invited to send ‘*‘ Communications ”’ to the 
editor on any topic of interest to the trade, and as to which 
an interchange of opinion is desirable. Also, matter for 
“ Notes and Queries’ thankfully received. 

The editor does not hold himself responsible for the 
views expressed in contributed articles or communications. 

All matter, whether for the reading-matter columns or 
our advertising pages, should reach this office not later 
than Wednesday noon, to insure insertion in the same 
week's issue. 








“Every man is a debtor to his profession, from 
the which, as men do of course seek to receive 
countenance and profit, so ought they of auty to 
endeavor themselves by way of amends to be a 
help thereunto.”—LORD BACON. 


CLOSE DISCOUNTS. 


As will be seen from a communication printed 
elsewhere, the movement for introducing a close 


discount will meet with opposition from many of | 


those in whose interest the measure is proposed. 
This was to be expected; indeed it will take a 
long time to effect any complete reform, because, 
in the first place, the demoralization in the book 
trade is too great to be overcome in a short time, 
or with one measure, and, in the second place, 
because there are so many “ifs” to be considered. 
The reason we have favored the close discount is 
that it seems to us to offer the most practical way 
out of the present difficulty. 


ject from the standpoint of every-day practical 
experience. We do not see that our correspond- 
ent succeeds in this. His argument is that the 
close discount would compel him to handle a $1.25 
book at a net profit of two cents. To prove this 
he gives a schedule of his expenses, which, if they 
prove anything at all, prove that his estimates are 
altogether too high. In the first place, the item 
of express or postage which he quotes is not the 
rule. A bookseller in Colorado would not order 
his general line of books in that way, and even on 
special orders by mail the average postage would 
scarcely be ten cents. He would have his goods 
sent by freight or enclosure, which would put the 


cost of transportation on the book within five | 


cents. Then his estimates for clerk hire, rent, etc.,

are pretty well up at fifteen per cent., calculated 
not on investment but on sales. In other words, 
the average transaction should leave him a profit 
of sixteen cents instead of two cents. But even ac- 
cepting his figures for argument’s sake, would our 
correspondent be better off under a long discount, 
say of 40 per cent. We doubt it, because in that 
case not more than $1.00 probably could be got 
for the book. This would leave our correspondent 
a margin of six cents—four cents more, he would 
claim, than the close discount would give him— 
but it would also leave him with a public used 
to, and insisting upon a discount—which is now 
considered the bane of the book trade. Until we 
have more convincing evidence, we shall continue 
to look for the introduction of close discounts as 
the first step in the direction of correcting the de- 
moralization of our trade. As to the abolition of 
the retail price, we doubt whether that would ever 
become practicable. That, from our view of the 
matter, would by no means be an unmixed bless- 
ing to the bookseller, even if the publishers could 
be induced to adopt the.measure. 


A TYPOGRAPHICAL error occurred in the adver- 
tisement of Messrs. Estes & Lauriat in our last 
issue, page 538. In the twenty-first line from 
the top the word ‘‘ Chatterbox” should have 
read ‘“‘ Chatterbook.” The advertisement is cor- 
rectly printed on page 578 of this issue. 


WHAT A BIBLIOGRAPHER MUST KNOW, 


From the Saturday Review. 


To succeed as a bibliographer a man must, be- 
| sides a natural power of distinguishing, have an 
| eye which comes to the work as a correct ear 
comes to the study of music; but he must also 
have a wide education, must know all the dead 
| and most of the living languages; he must be 
| enough of an artist to recognize an artist’s touch; 
| he must have an extensive knowledge of all kinds 
| of books in different libraries; and, above all, his 
memory must be unerring. With these qualifica- 
tions he may begin to learn water-marks, founts of 
type, lines in a page, and all the mysteries of early 
printing, paper-making, and binding. These are 
but the preliminaries of bibliography, and must be 
acquired apart altogether from any literary or 

critical study of books. If they can afterwards be 
| combined, well and good; but at the beginning 

they are independent. The man who, like Hill 
| Burton, can write pleasantly about old books is 

not to be trusted for scientific bibliography; and 
Dibdin, with his ignorance of things in general 





and his wretched style, is often after all a safer 
guide. But Oldys and Davies, who could com- 
bine knowledge and easy writing, published very 
little that will interest the bookworm. Cotton 
and Maitland are too dry, and hardly up to the 
latest lights. A book like the late Mr. Henry 
Steven’s ‘‘ Recollections of Mr. James Lenox,” 
though it gives us little or no bibliographical in- 
struction, is certainly well calculated to show us 
| how to acquire it, and is very entertaining besides, 
| as is so oftenthe case when a writer is willing to 
| tell stories against himself.

RAPID DISCOLORATION OF PAPER. 


Pror. WIESNER, of Vienna, published an ar- 
ticle upon this subject in Dingler’s Polytechnisches 
poco for September. His observations of 

ooks were undertaken in Vienna at the sugges- 
tion of Leithe, the well-known librarian. This 
rapid discoloration is the yellowing shown in so 
short time by much of the paper manufactured in 
the present day, especially when freely exposed 
tothe air. It is only noticed in wood-pulp paper 
and must be clearly distinguished from the discol- 
oration of old good rag-paper. Wood-pulp paper 


when exposed to the almost perpendicular rays of | 


ee : : : | with great pains, and in some se yes 
the sun showed the beginning of discoloration with- 8 P three years of 


in an hour ; as, however, at the temperature caused 
by the sun’s rays no change was shown while the 
paper remained in the dark, it was naturally con- 
cluded that only the light is instrumental in the 
discoloration of wood-pulp paper. 
periments proved that the discoloration of wood- 
paper is a process of oxidation dependent upon 
the light ; also, that while dampness is favorable 
to the discoloration, it is not a necessary element 
of the process. The power of the light was im- 
portant for the discoloration; when exposed to 
gaslight the color only changed after four months. 

Prof. Wiesner recommends the following to 
aid in the protection of wood-pulp paper : Sun- 
light is the most injurious light. Very weak, 
shaded daylight, especially in very dry rooms, 
will take but little effect. Gaslight, owing to 
the limited refraction of its rays, is almost 
wholly harmless. On the other hand, electric 
light, and, in fact, every light having strong re- 
fraction, is favorable to discoloration. There- 
fore, gaSlight should generally be preferred to 
electric light in illuminating libraries, if the dan- 
ger of discoloration is to be considered. 


HURD AND HOUGHTON. 
NV. ¥. Correspondence of the Literary World 

IT is very rarely that a single publishing-house 
has done so much for a national literature as 
that which is now Houghton, Mifflin & Co. But 
you will ask what a New Yorker has to say about 
so eminent a Boston house—whose earliest tradi- 
tions are of Boston—Ticknor, Reed & Fields, 
Ticknor & Fields, Fields, Osgood & Co., Hough- 
ton, Osgood & Co., H. O. Houghton & Co., 
Houghton, Mifflin & Co. Where is there any 
New York in that catena? Stop a bit. We say 
that until 1870 it was a Boston house. But in that 
year the firm of Hurd & Houghton, which was a 
New York house, made the firm bigger than any 
one single town, and began publishing books for 
the nation. Melancthon M. Hurd was a member 
of the old firm of Sheldon & Co., of this city, the 
member of that firm. He saw the possibilities of 
something more than he was engaged in, entered 
into an arrangement with H. O. Houghton, who 
had already made the Riverside Press equal the 
finest book-work turned out in the world, and the 
firm of Hurd & Houghton began on Broome 
Street, and then on “ Booksellers’ Row” at Astor 
Place. Mr. Hurd sat in the New York office, 
and, I think, to his genius for knowing ¢he what, 
plus Mr. Henry O. Houghton’s consummate un- 
derstanding of ‘he how, is owing the great suc- 
cessor-firm that presents what is one of the largest

clined to print it, the writer put his MS. into the

ENGLISH HISTORY BY CONTEMPORARY 
WRITERS. 
From the London Academy, 

Mr. Davip Nutt, London, has in preparation 
the first volumes of aseries entitled English His- 
tory by Contemporary Writers, in which the facts 
of English national history, political and social, 
will be set forth in a way not yet systematically 
attempted in this country, but somewhat similar to 


| that which Messrs. Hachette have so successfully 


adopted in France under the editorship of MM. 
Zeller, Duruy, Luchaire, etc. This series is 
planned not only for educational use, but also for 
the general reader, and especially for those to 
whom the original authorities are for various rea- 
sons difficult of access. To each well-defined 


period of English history will be given a little

volume made up of extracts from the chroniclers, 
state papers, memoirs and letters of the period, 
and other contemporary literature, chronolog- 
ically arranged and chosen so as to afford 
a living picture of the effect produced on each 
generation by the political, religious, social, and 
intellectual movements in which it took part. 
Extracts from foreign tongues will be translated, 
and passages from old English authors put into 
modern spelling, but otherwise kept in their orig- 
inal form. Where needed, a glossary will be 
added and brief explanatory notes. There will 
also be appended a short account of the writers 
quoted, and of their relation to the events they de- 
scribe, and such tables and summaries as will 
facilitate reference. Such illustrations as are 
given will be chosen in the same spirit as the 
texts, to represent historic monuments, docu- 
ments, sites, portraits, coins, etc. The chief aim 
of the series will be to send the reader back to 
the original authorities, and so bring himas close 
as may be to the mind and feelings of the times 
he is reading about. Mr. F. York Powell, 0! 
Christ Church, Oxford, will be editor of the se- 
ries. Among the earlier volumes issued will be 
“ Britain under the Romans,” by Mr. C. I. Elton; 
“The Little English Kingdom,” by the editor; 
“The Danish Sea Kings and their Settlements, 
by the editor; “Henry II.—Statesman and Re-

COMMUNICATIONS. | 
A “TEST OF THE TRADE”—MORE EXPERI- | 
ENCE. 


Troy, N. Y., Oct. 12, 1886. | 

To the Editor of The Publishers’ Weekly. 
DEAR Six: Mr. Allyn’s letter of October 4th is | 
interesting, but would be more so if he (or you) | 
gave the publisher’s name ; let us know who they 
are. Here is a late experience of mine. A stu- 
dent in a Troy seminary asked me for a price on 
20 copies of a German text-book, the retail price 
of which is $1.75, discount to the trade, 33}—net, 
1.17; knowing he was a close buyer I quoted 
$1.25 ; another firm quoted the same, and another 
$1.40. 


would get the order, sent the quotation by wire. 
‘“‘ Testing the trade” is all very well. The stu- 
dent referred to has tested both, and finds the 
publisher pays him the best. 
The name of the firm referred to is E. Steiger 
& Co., and mine is WILLIAM J. Woops. 
E. STEIGER & COS REPLY. 
New York, Oct. 19, 1886. 
To the Editor of The Publishers’ Weekly. 
DEAR SIR: 


tion. 
It was the Zi/rarian of the Seminary who in- 


formed us that a German class had been organ- | 


ized, for which they intended to adopt our book, 


and he, therefore, inquired our terms for introduc- | 


tion. We quoted, as usual, half retail price (88 


cents), and Mr. Woods would have been enabled | 


by us to do the same, if he had stated the case to 
us. 


This reminds us of the following out of many | 


similar cases: 
ern university asked our rates for certain books. 


We quoted 20°% discount, whereupon his Profes- | 


sor of Latin wrote us in his (the student’s) behalf, 
naming a number of prominent publishers who 
had allowed that student full booksellers’ rates 
and thirty days’ time or more. 

With pleasure we refer to the fact that, fully ap- 
preciating the good-will of booksellers, we allow 
them a larger discount off our publications, and 
protect their interests better than—as far as we 
know—other publishers do. This policy in favor 
of booksellers we intend to continue. 

Respectfully yours, 
E. STEIGER & Co. 
AN OBJECTION TO CLOSE DISCOUNTS. 
a CoLorapo Sprinos, Cor., Oct. 4, 1886. 
Lo the Editor of The Publishers’ Weekly. 

I THINK country booksellers will read with in- 
terest that The Century Co. advertise ‘‘ A New De- 
Parture by reducing the retail prices of all of their 
books on which the ordinary discounts to the 
trade have been given, toa figure from which only 
small discounts can be allowed. This means that 
a bookseller cannot afford to give a discount on 
as Century Co.’s publications. He must sell 

€m at the full retail price in order to make any-

thing—but the public is getting books at a lower 
price than ever before, and as good books of the 
kind as we know of for the least money.” 

The above would appear to be an experiment 
which might be conceived as the outgrowth of the 
long-discussed question of discounts which your 
WEEKLY has been so liberal in giving space to 
Let us see how such a system would work with

lishers—that is, reducing discounts to twenty-five 
per cent. I can see that for dealers in New York 
City twenty-five per cent. would be a handsome 
discount when there is no freight or express 
charges to pay. But how is it with the remaining 
ten or eleven thousand booksellers scattered all 
over the country? How much can we make at 
twenty-five per cent. discount? Here are the

somewhat in the style of “ Letters to Dead Au- 
thors,” the difference being that they are not ad- 

| dressed to the authors themselves, either dead or 
living, but to a “ Mr. Arthur Wincott, of Topeka, 
Kansas,” to whom Mr. Lang writes his criticisms 
of the literature “ of the present and of the past, 
English, American, ancient, or modern.” 


| Mr. S. R. KOEHLER’s connection with 7 he 
| Magazine of Art ends with the number now in 
the hands of the printer. Mr. Koehler’s work as 
the American editor of this magazine has been 
distinguished by dignity, accuracy, and thorough- 
ness, and the loss of his valuable services will no 
doubt be regretted by its readers. Mr. Koehler 
has resigned his position in order to give his en- 
tire time to creative literary work. He will be 
succeeded in the editorial chair by Miss Char- 
lotte Adams, a young lady who holds a high 
position as a writer on art subjects, and who has 
for several years past been a valuable contributor 
| to the columns of the Century Magazine, The 
| Critic, and the Art Age.

and marine views in water-colors of Holland 
scenery, and several historical views, seventy-five 
pictures in all. Major Cronin has spent some 
time in the Netherlands, and has studied art in

ISSUED BY 





















[ALL ENTERPRISING BOOKSELLERS] 


The subscription edition of the ILLUSTRATED CHRISTMAS NUMBER of THE PUuBLIsuHeRs'’ 
WEEKLY will be issued as carly in November as possible, .0 give time for the imprint editions to 
reach all dealers three weeks before Christmas at the latest. 

The Number will as usual present the finest specimen illustrations from the New Hott- 
DAY Books, with special articles on the leading works, a full descriptive summary of books 
and stationery novelties, reference price-lists covering the ILLUSTRATED Works, Books For 
THE YOUNG, and other Cuoice Books published during 1886, ete., etc. Every endeavor will 
be made to surpass the issues of previous years. 

The imprint edition (intended for distribution by dealers with their sole imprint) will be 
printed immediately after the issue of the 77vade edition, under the title of “ Curistmas Carta. 
LOGUE,” as given above. 

The local bookseller can add half as much again to his holiday trade by properly callin 
the attention of the public to his goods. For this purpose, the best means is the circulation of 
this handsome, interesting, and comprehensive CHRISTMAS CATALOGUE, which is received with 
pleasure by those to whom it is given or sent, as itself a picture-book of no little value; and 
its descriptions of and illustrations from books, at once arouse the desire to purchase the 
books themselves. 

No better investment can be made by the bookseller who wants to make the most of his holiday 
trade. 

Orders filled in the order of size of edition, largest first, and then of receipt. As the 
paper is specially made for this issue, orders should be received at once, as the filling of éater 


demands cannot be guaranteed.

“Our reading of ‘ The Chamber Over the Gar, 
has discovered in it more of the elements of tha: 
long-expected pre duct, ‘ the great American nor 
than we have found in any recent work of fictio; 

It has large stature, reserve force, aby

marked ; it has character, incident, sentiment, an F 
passion ; it is virile, natural, lifelike, dramatic, ab. 
sorbing. . . . Its commanding proportions, I 
its excellent paper and print, its salmon-color i 
edges and cover of old gold, mark it out among a 
the mass of books with a certain distinctness wel Y 
befitting its uncommon character.” — Litera f |
