Full text of "Publishers Weekly"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

IKE a forlorn hope lost in a fog." — 
That's the way his friend Red 
Saunders tried to explain Scraggs. 



It doesn't explain much if you don't know 
Ezekiel George Washington Scraggs, 

late of Missouri, later of Utah (" I've been a 
Mormon," Scraggs explained; but Red 
said that was nothing to bank on in dealing 
with Zeke), and latest of North Dakota. 

Scraggs* melancholy is only skin deep ; 
and the more mournful he is the more joy- 
ful you get ; the longer his face the broader 

"Scrtggsy looked like a foi lorn hope . _. . . - - . , 

lost in a re*." From «Mr. scrag«" your grin. The kind of humor that makes 

by Henry Wallace Phillim. Pub- J O 

lishcd by The Grafton Pre.., N.Y. yQU laugh ^Jj the ^^ COme _ that's 

Scraggs; the kind that makes you say : u there's a lot of sense in 
that "—that's Scraggs, too. 

And then the story ! Some people write stories — little four by 
five plots, parted in the middle, symmetrical, lovely. Scraggs tells 
a story. He tells it because he can't help it. Your real story-teller 
is born, and not every minute either ; and that's Scraggs, too. 



You can't have the blues, and you don't worry about the crops, 
and you really don't care whether the ticker ticks or not when 3 T ou 
read Mr. Scraggs. 

It will be ready in book form on January 15th ; the title is 

Mr. Scraggs 

The author is Henry Wallace Phillips, who wrote " Red 
Saunders." The price is $1.25. Eight illustrations from special 
drawings ; one of them in colors for frontispiece.

NOTES IN SEASON. 

Charles Scribner's Sons have published 
a new illustrated edition of Burns's cele- 
brated poem, "The Cotter's Saturday Night," 



%5ijJ> twenty-one- full-page drawings by A. S. 
Bdyd, a well-known Scotch artist. 

> Dodd, Mead & Co. have in preparation a 
stoi^of Harrow, by Horace Vachell, author 
,JtffjJBrothers," which is said to be alive with 
delightful character studies and interesting 
events ; also, "The Girl with the Blue Sailor," 
by Burton E. Stevenson, author of the popu- 
lar "Marathon Mystery," etc. 

Houghton, Mifflin & Co. have in prep- 
aration "Northland Heroes," by Miss Hol- 
brook, author of "The Book of Nature 
Myths," etc., giving a narrative of the Norse 
romance of Fridtjof's Saga and of the ex- 
ploits of Beowulf; a volume of "Selections 
from Newman," edited by Dr. Maurice Fran- 
cis Egan, of the Catholic University at Wash- 
ington; also, an edition of "Bacon's Essays," 
with an introduction by Professor Mary Au- 
gusta Scott, of Smith College, who was re- 
cently decorated by King Leopold, of Bel- 
gium, "for distinguished literary merit." 

The Grafton Press. New York, will pub- 
lish on the 15th inst. "Mr. Scraggs," a new 
novel by Henry Wallace Phillips, author of 
"Red Saunders." The collection of stories 
of which the volume is made up records 
characteristic incidents in the career of a 
man whose ambition, according to '<Red 
Saunders," who introduces his friend to the 
reader, it was to be "the head of the hull 
Mormon Kingdom," and who married "right 
and left" until driven to desperation he cut 
loose and ended in a State where a mans 
importance is not weighed by the number of 
his wives. Though obliged to view life from 
the standpoint of a pessimist, Mr. Scraggs's 
melancholy is only skin deep, and the longer 
his face becomes the broader becomes the 
grin of his reader. The Grafton Press have 
just ready the ninth revised edition of the 
useful "Postal Dictionary," compiled from 
official sources by Edward St. John. 

Bobbs-Merrill Company will shortly issue 
a novel by Herbert Quick, entitled "Double 
Trouble, or, Every Hero His Own Villain," 
which introduces about every fad and fancv 
of the overwrought, restless brains and the- 
ories of the day in the United States from 
East to West. The hero is a respectable 
young banker, of Wisconsin, of literary arid 
artistic tastes, who meets with a strange ex- 
perience on a sleeping car that drives him to 
an occulist in New York City for explana- 
tion. The plot is most involved, dealing with 
double identity and mystery of all kinds. 
The publishers have gotten out a special lim- 
ited advance edition dedicated to the book- 
sellers throughout the land "who are ever 
kind to their inventions." By way of keep- 
ing up interest in the startling tale it is 
printed half way through and the book 
must be begun from the other end to be read 
right side up. This plan of binding helps the 
publishers' assertions that "the book is bound 
to^ attract equally whichever way you look at 
it," and that "it shows a new way to make 
ends meet in promoting books." The author 
has written "Aladdin & Co." and "In the 
Fairyland of America," and has imagination 
of the most active and erratic kind.

FOUNDED BY F. LEYPOLDT. 



JANUARY 6, 1906. 



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

All matter for advertising pages should reach this 
office not later than Wednesday noon, to insure in- 
sertion in the same week's issue. 

Publishers 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 forward- 
ed, as it is of the utmost importance that the entries 
of books be made as promptly and as perfectly as pos- 
sible. In many cases booksellers and librarians de- 
pend on the Publishers' Wkkkly solely for their 
information. The Record of New Publications of 
the Publishers' Weekly is the material of the 
"American Catalog/' and so forms the basis of trade 
bibliography in the United States. 



"/ hold every man a debtor to his profes- 
sion, from the which, as men do of course 
seek to receive countenance and profit, so 
ought they of duty to endeavor themselves by 
way of amends to be a help and an ornament 
thereunto."— Loud. Bacon. 



ENGLISH BOOK AUCTION SALES 
IN 1905 * 

The English book auction season of 1905, 
as recorded by J. H. Slater in his latest vol- 
ume of "Book Prices Current," was re- 
markable for the large number of scarce 
and valuable books offered. Of late years 
some twenty-five or thirty single volumes, 
or works, have each, as a rule, realized 
$500 or upwards during the course of a 
season. This figure, however, during the past 
year has been greatly exceeded. The Shake- 
speariana alone, as Mr. Slater points out, 
constituted a formidable list. One copy of 
the first folio made its appearance, nine of 
the second, one of the third, and seven of the 
fourth; and, in addition, there were twenty- 
five early 4tos, or 8vos, inclusive of the 
"Merry Divel of Edmonton" and that pre- 
cursor of "King Lear," which was printed 
for Simon Stafford for John Wright in 1605 
under the title of "The True Chronicle His- 
tory of King Leir and His Three Daughters, 
Gonerill, Ragan and Cordelia." 

The following table, prepared for "Book 
Prices Current," gives a summary of the 
more important Shakespeariana sold, with the 
prices realized. Ordinary copies and collec- 
tive editions — of which there were a large 
number — and more particularly a variety of 
acting versions, all presentation copies from

pecuniary point of view they are compara- 
tively unimportant:

Some of these copies were, of course, in 
better condition than others, but Mr. Slater 
has not thought it necessary to give minute 
details in this respect. 

This is, as stated, a formidable and alto- 
gether exceptional list, in itself sufficient to 
make this volume of "Book Prices Current" 
a notable addition to the series. There are, 
however, a considerable number of other 
books, equally interesting and valuable, which 
it would, under the circumstances, be illogical 
to omit. These are, as before arranged with 
reference to the prices realized, the more ex- 
pensive volumes being placed first:

Hell, 4to, morocco, n. d 156 

In addition, twenty-six other works realized 
iioo or over, but less than £150, and on a cal- 
culation it is found that, including the Shake- 
speariana, the books contained in the second 
list, and the other works which it has not 
been thought necessary to quote, but which 
realized £100 and upwards, as much as 
£24351 was obtained for 60 works. 

As regards the general run of books the 
season for 1904- 1905 has not been altogether 
satisfactory, the average working out at £2 
17s. 2d., as against £2 9s. 3d. in 1903-4, a 
phenomenally bad year ; £3 2s. iod. in 1902-3, 
£3 3s. 4d., in 1901-2, and £3 7s. iod. in 1900- 
1901, the last-named being the highest so far 
recorded. It is evident from this computation 
that an average of £2 17s. 2d. is, under the 
circumstances, anything but satisfactory. It 
discloses the fact, as Mr. Slater points 
out, that while some few books of a very 
special kind have realized abnormally high 
prices, the vast majority must have suf- 
fered severely. Such indeed proves, on 
investigation, to be the case, for, leaving 
the 69 high-priced works out of the calcula- 
tion, the average stands no higher than about 
£2 5s. 9d. Ordinary books have dropped very 
greatly in value. Works on bibliography, 
sport, theology, history and military subjects, 



as well as old poetical works, have, on the 
whole, barely maintained last year's position, 
though an increased interest has been taken 
in the early editions of the plays of the old 
dramatists. Everything else has, however, 
much headway to make. Works of fiction 
show a great falling off in numbers, as well 
as in value, and the same remark applies to 
books classed under the headings of voyages 
and travels, natural history (in all its 
branches), the fine arts, topography and views 
in Europe and the East. The Greek and 
Latin classics are hardly, a few exceptions 
apart, worth mentioning, and Americana are 
conspicuous by the infrequency of their oc- 
currence. It may be said with every confi- 
dence that the season 1904-5 has proved one 
of the best of recent years for buyers who are 
compelled by circumstances or content to 
forego the collection of curiosities and to pin 
their faith to books which are desirable and, 
at the same time, comparatively easy to ac- 
quire. 

THE STATIONERS' BOARD OF TRADE 
ANNUAL MEETING. 

The annual meeting of the Stationers' 
Board of Trade was held on the afternoon of 
the 2d inst, at rooms of the Board, 97 Nassau 
Street, New York City, Henry C. Bainbridge, 
the president, in the chair. There were pres- 
ent or represented by proxy forty-seven 
firms. 

The president read the following address, 
which, upon motion, was received and or- 
dered entered in full upon the minutes : 
PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS. 

In presenting the thirty-first annual ad- 
dress of the President of this organization I 
want to congratulate you upon the excellent 
general condition of our Board. We are free 
from debt, redemption fund intact, and have 
a handsome surplus. Every department is 
well organized, with an efficient head, all 
work harmoniously under the direction of 
our secretary, who is responsible to the offi- 
cers. This condition is very satisfactory to 
your officers and adds much to the pleasure of 
serving you. 

We have had several resignations from our 
membership during the year, but new mem- 
bers have come in to enable us to show a net 
increase for the year of three. 

Information Department. — Our members 
have very generally used this department 
during the year. While few have exceeded 
the two hundred limit, many have obtained 
their full quota of reports. Our records have 
never been in as good shape. We can report 
on almost any concern of importance in our 
own or in any kindred lines, and these rec- 
ords are being continually revised and kept 
up to date. About 1700 special circulars re- 
ferring to important trade changes have been 
sent to our members besides our Weekly Cir- 
cular, of which over 7800 have been issued.

The Publisher* Weekly. 



[No. 1771] Jan. 6, 1906 



Collection Department. — The report of the 
Executive Committee shows that the record 
of this department is excellent It has been 
very generally used, and has collected an un- 
usually large amount of money. In connec- 
tion with this department we have a form of 
demand notice for collection of claims, which 
we sell at 40 cents per hundred. These can 
be sent direct to debtor, and if claim is paid 
you avoid the payment of fees, and members 
who have used them have found it a very 
effective means of collecting past due claims, 
particularly so for small amounts. The draft 
system has been quite generally used with 
effective results by our members. In cases 
when the draft has been paid to the bank it 
has only put them to an expense of 2 per cent, 
for collecting. If members would make a 
more extensive use of this system they would 
find it one of the best and cheapest means of 
collecting their past due claims. We would 
suggest to those who have not done so that 
they make use of it at the Jirst opportunity. 

Bankruptcy Department. — By comparison 
with the showing of the year's work for 1904, 
I find that about the same number of failures 
and bankruptcy cases have been placed in our 
hands, as well as a like number of claims; 
but the net amount realized in cash is far in 
excess of previous years, viz., about 50 per 
cent., and this, of course, has largely in- 
creased our revenue in the way of fees, as 
shown by the treasurer's report, being about 
40 per cent, to 50 per cent, more than last 
year. 

The largest case that was placed in our 
charge during the year was the Philadelphia 
Book Store Co., whose indebtedness 
amounted to about $29,000 and assets about 
$35»<x», and we controlled nearly all the 
claims, aggregating $24,000, and thereby were 
successful in having a representation in the 
receivership proceedings of two co-receivers 
out of the three appointed by the court, who 
handled the matter in such a judicious and 
satisfactory manner that a dividend was de- 
clared by them of 80 per cent, and thus en- 
abled us to pay about $16,945 to the creditors 
we represent; and from certain accounts now 
in hands of the receivers for collection we 
expect in the near future, say six months 
or more, to receive another dividend suffi- 
cient to pay the creditors in full. We partic- 
ularly mention this, as it shows the efficacy 
of concentrating claims in such matters and 
having all the creditors work together so 
that the best results possible may be accom- 
plished, especially so through bankruptcy by 
the appointment of a proper trustee, etc. We 
find, however, that some of our members, 
when they receive a request from an outside 
attorney, who frequently does not represent 
us, they forward their claim to him instead of 
sending it to this office, which in some in- 
stances we know of has proven detrimental to 
their interests, and I, therefore, would sug- 
gest that in all matters of this and similar na- 
ture that members immediately forward their 
claims to this office. Our secretary has had 
large experience in handling bankruptcy, 
failure and adjustment cases, and when it is 



necessary for him in the interests of creditors 
to investigate the matter personally by pro- 
ceeding to the locality where the failure has 
taken place, he is ready at all times to im- 
mediately proceed to same for the purpose of 
investigating the failure and ascertaining the 
best action to take in the premises. 

During the past year death has removed 
from our ranks the following who were, or 
had been, connected with our Board : 

John McLoughlin, of McLoughlin Bros., 
who died April 27, 1905. 

Andrew J. C. Foye, formerly of Jos. Dixon 
Crucible Co., and at one time treasurer of our 
Board, who died May 26, 1905. 

David F. Davids, president of Thaddeus 
Davids Co., who died August 26, 1905. 

John H. Mabie, of the firm of Mabie, Todd 
& Bard, who died October 10, 1905. 

John F. Anderson, Jr., of the former firm 
of J. F. Anderson, Jr., & Co., died Thursday. 
January 19, 1905. Mr. Anderson was one of 
the first members of our association, having 
joined us in November, 1877. 

In accordance with our yearly custom the 
books of the office have been examined by R» 
L. Cuthbert, the well-known accountant. His 
report is on file and is eminently satisfactory. 
The first week in October I attended, as your 
representative, the first annual convention of 
the National Association of Stationers and 
Manufacturers at St Louis. The National 
Association honored this Board by electing 
John A. Walker to the office of first vice- 
president, and your president to the office of 
auditor. 

Your dinner committee has arranged to 
hold the annual dinner on Tuesday, February 
6, at the Waldorf-Astoria. Among the guests 
who have accepted an invitation to be with 
us are the Hon. Herman Metz, Comptroller 
of New York, and the Rev. Lindsay Parker. 
This is an excellent start, and assures you 
that the affair will be fully up to our usual 
high standard. 

I again thank the trustees and the em- 
ployees of the office for the uniform help and 
courtesy extended to me, which has done so 
much to make my work as president a pleas- 
ure. 

The following reports were then read and 
approved and ordered to be entered in full

PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS WITHOUT 
SUNLIGHT. 

A new process for making photographic 
prints without sunlight is described by Pro- 
fessor Robert Kennedy Duncan in the January 
number of Harper's Magazine. The process 
is peculiarly applicable for the easy produc- 
tion of beautiful "carbon" prints, and the ar- 
ticle contains a reproduction of one which was 
made in less than two minutes. The new 
method, which is fully described so that the 
reader may try it for himself, has just been 
put on the German market, under the name of 
the "Catatype Process." It was devised by 
Professor Ostwald and Dr. Gros, to whom 
Professor Duncan is indebted for the prac- 
tical demonstration given at the works of the 
Neue Photographische Gesellschaft, at Steg- 
litz. Professor Duncan will be for some little 
time on the Continent, as he has undertaken 
a commission in behalf of Harper's Magazine 
to find out how far America has been out- 
stripped by the Continental countries, and es- 
pecially by Germany, in the practical applica- 
tion made by their great industries of the 
most recent and wonderful discoveries of 
science. 



THE "B. C. T." COMES OF AGE. 

The Brotherhood of Commercial Trav- 
ellers, on the evening of December 28, met 
in the Myrtle Room of the Waldorf-Astoria, 
New York City, to celebrate its twenty-first 
birthday. At eight o'clock about seventy 
members and their guests took their places 
in the beautifully decorated* room, followed 
by the president, John H. Black, and his 
staff. At each plate lay a handsome 
souvenir menu, showing on its title page 
an excellent portrait of the founder of 
the Brotherhood, Charles A. Plummer. 
A copy of 4 'In Bohemia," by J. C. Harvey, 
was donated by H. M. Caldwell Co., and a 
champagne cork match box was distributed to 
each one present as a souvenir. Mumm & Co. 
for the twenty-first year sent, with their com- 
pliments, a consignment of their wines, and the 
E. H. Gato Company again made a generous 
donation of their cigars. After coffee had 
been served Brother Black, in a brief speech, 
welcomed the gathering, referring touchingly 
to the founder of the Brotherhood, and ex- 
pressing the hope that the membership of the 
organization might in the years to come hold 
together as loyally as in the past. 

At this point several ladies, among them 
Mrs. Black and her niece, entered the room 
to grace the speech making, and were cour- 
teously greeted. Mrs. Nestor Lattard, Mrs. 
Black's niece, favored the company with sev- 
eral songs that were applauded to the echo. 

The secretary then read the roll-call of the 
officers of the Brotherhood, homage being 
paid to those who have passed into rest — 
"checked through"— by respectful silence. A 
further tribute was paid to the dead, by dis- 
playing at the center of the guests' table, the 
regalia of Colonel John H. Ammon, the first 
representative of the booktrade to become 
the president of the Brotherhood, and that 
of H. J. Epping, its seventeenth president, 
whose death occurred on May 21, 1905. 

John Hovendon, chairman of the Souvenir 
Committee, next claimed the attention of the 
gathering, and in a happy address on behalf 
of the Brotherhood presented to John H. 
Black a very handsome silver loving cup, 
inscribed with the monogram of the B. C T.. 
and the date of the twenty-first dinner. 
Brother Black at first was fairly dumb with 
surprise; but recovering himself, he warmly 
thanked the Brotherhood for this token of 
their esteem. 

The "Historian" of the Brotherhood was 
then called upon for an account of the organi- 
zation, which is given below : 

THE BROTHERHOOD OF COMMERCIAL 
TRAVELLERS, 1885-1906. 

Man, in his healthy condition, is a gre- 
garious animal. When he alienates himself 
from his fellows he becomes a misanthrope, 
and is shunned by man, woman and child. 
By the very choice of his profession a com- 
mercial traveller gives evidence that he is a 
companionable man, whose heart beats warm 
with sympathy and neighborly impulses; he 
is less likely, perhaps, to form hide-bound 
clubs than his sedentary associate, because 
everywhere he goes he finds a ready-made

club and warm welcome. His fellow mem- 
bers travel on every railway train, andf reside 
in every city, town and hamlet through which 
he may be obliged to take his way. It is 
little wonder, then, that the commercial trav- 
ellers representing the book and stationery 
houses in New York and its vicinity did not 
recognize the necessity of forming them- 
selves into a close society until long after the 
second half of the 19th century had passed 
down the ages. Then, one season, during the 
holidays of 1885, Charles S. Plummer, than 
whom no better friend or more sociable com- 
panion ever walked upon earth, said to a 
number of his intimates, "all the world is on 
a holiday, why not the 'boys.'" And so. 
quietly and without much parade, there came 
about an event that was referred to in The 
Publishers' Weekly for December 19, 1885, 
as follows: 

"During the past few weeks there has been 
noticeable considerable agitation among the 
travelling men connected with the book, sta- 
tionery and kindred trades in New York 
City. There has been evident a restlessness 
among this usually placid body of men, which 
at this time of the year — all ships being in 
port, and the work of loading and unload- 
ing over — seemed wholly without justifica- 
tion, and fears were entertained by the fami- 
lies and friends of many that everything 
was not as it should be with the 'boys.' 'B. 
C T.' seemed to be the complaint, and what 
is more, it was contagious. The secret leaked 
out when a neatly engraved pasteboard was 
circulated bearing the following inscription: 
'1885 — first Annual ' Banquet of the Brother- 
hood of Commercial Travellers, at Morelli's, 
8 West 28th St., New York City, Wednes- 
day evening, December 16, 1885, at 7 o'clock.' 
To the left-hand corner of the card was 
attached a miniature facsimile of a regulation 
trunk marked 'G & F., New York, 251 lbs./ 
and as mottoes, 'Competition is the life of 
trade,' 'There is no such word as fail,' 'After 
toil comes rest,' and 'Let us all pull to- 
gether.' " 

Such, in brief, was the first published an- 
nouncement that the Brotherhood of Com- 
mercial Travellers had been born and chris- 
tened. The banquet held in the cosy parlor 
at Morelli's was a complete success, so well 
and faithfully had all concerned in the 
launching of the craft pulled together. 

There were present at the first dinner up- 
wards of 100 as fine-looking men as could 
be found anywhere in whatever trade or pro- 
fession. The president, genial, wholesouled 
Charles S. Plummer, seconded by the vice- 
president, Charles E. Hopkins, gave the right 
hand of fellowship to the incoming guests, 
and turned them over to H. C. A. Gibbs, the 
secretary. Samuel Eckstein, the treasurer, 
George "W. Knott, Benjamin Howe, R. L. 
Thomas. Charles J. Ritter, and George L. 
Corn well, who constituted the Reception 
Committee, and who contributed not a little 
to the success of the affair by seeing to it 
that all were made acquainted in the shortest 
time possible. The speaking was good, 
though often—well, let us say, "mellow." The 
toasts, "The Brotherhood of Commercial 
Travellers united by closer and more endur- 
irp bonds than railroad ties," "Buyer and 



Salesmen," "Hotels and their Accommoda- 
tions," "Railroads and Extra Baggage," "The 
Commercial Traveller, a Modern Necessity." 
and "The Press," were responded to by Colo- 
nel John H. Ammon, John H. Black, George 
W. Knott, John A. McQuillan, C. E. Hopkins 
and Andrew Geyer in the order named. The 
company broke up after joining Brother Wil- 
liam J. Kelly in singing his prime favorite — 
"Vive la Compagnie." 

The hope, expressed earlier in the evening 
by the president, Brother Plummer, that the 
Brotherhood "would grow larger and 
stronger, and outlive the present generation," 
re-echoed in the breast of every man present 
as he wended his way home to prepare for 
the trials, defeats and victories that another 
year might have in store for him. 

We shall note how that hope was realized. 

Of that early band there are few who would 
not have resented the imputation that the 
time would come when they would fail to 
"pull together," come weal or woe. And yet, 
such is the uncertainty of human resolution 
that time witnessed the defection of some 
of those even who most persistently reiter- 
ated on several occasions that "so long as an- 
other man of the Brotherhood was alive and 
willing," they would once a year, during the 
holiday season, "spread their feet under the 
mahogany with him and drink to the health 
of the Brotherhood." To-night their places at 
this banquet table are occupied by others, 
though not less worthy and enthusiastic 
guests, to maintain the integrity of their 
boast to drink to the health of the Broth- 
erhood, which to-night is within sight of the 
eve of "Coming of age." 

1886. 

Another year had come to its close when 
the "B. C. T." came together on the even- 
ing of the 29th of December, 1886, this time 
at Mazetti's, 102 West 49th Street, under the 
presidency of Brother Charles E. Hopkins. 
On that occasion, at a preliminary meeting 
the question of establishing a permanent club- 
room was discussed, and a standing commit- 
tee appointed to report on the subject — a 
committee, which, by the way, "stands" to 
this day without a report. 

The speeches were introduced with a 
parody on the ballad "In the Days of Old. 
When Knights were Bold," sung by Brother 
H. C. Bainbridge. the verses of which were 
as follows: 

In days of old. 

When tramps were bold, 

And "Drummers" got poor pay, 
A Traveller bold. 
With Samples old, 

Sang merrily his lay 

Sang merrily his lay: 
"I have these goods to sclll 
If I don't, the boss will raise — well, 
Then what care I, though death be nigh, 
I'll sell the stuff or die!" 

The shades of night 
Were falling fast. 

And this day's work was done. 
He'd seen the trade, 
Sold bills that paid. 

And thought he'd have some fun, 

He thought he'd have some fun. 
So, dressed up in his best 
Dress suit and clean white vest, 
Cried, "What care I, though death be nigh, 
I'll have some fun or die." _

[No. 1771] Jan. 6, 1906 



An auction was held under the auspices of 
Brother Plummer to dispose of a handsome 
autograph album containing the autographs 
of the members of the Brotherhood, the sale 
of which realized nearly double the amount 
needed to wipe out the deficit incurred in 
getting up the banquet. 

On this evening, also, was inaugurated the 
pleasant ceremony of investing the retiring 
president with an elaborate gold and ivory 
gavel suspended, in each case, from a distinct- 
ively colored ribbon, which has been observed 
until the present time. This insignia has been 
worn with as much pride by each retiring 
president of the Brotherhood as were worn 
the spurs or his lady's scarf by the Knights 
of old. 

1887, 1888. 

The third and the fourth dinners were 
given, respectively, on the 28th of December, 
1887, and 27th of December, 1888, both at the 
Metropolitan Hotel. 

Colonel Ammon occupied the chair on the 
former occasion, and William J. Kelly on the 
latter. There were present as guests at the 
third dinner J. C. Harvey, Wallace Bruce, 
J. Foord and Adolf Tuck, and at the fourth 
dinner Carl Levison, Joe Howard, Jr., Mar- 
shall P. Wilder, E. S. Savage and Russell B. 
Harrison, son of the then president-elect of 
the United States, who in a witty speech 
denied the "soft impeachment" that he was a 
bookseller, inasmuch as his sales consisted 
chiefly of playing cards, poker chips and 
"guns." 

1889. 

The fifth dinner, given at the Hotel Marl- 
borough, on the evening of December 30, 
1889, under the direction of President J. F. 
Hitchcock, was the first of a number of suc- 
cessful dinners. The dinner was in the na- 
ture of a family affair, celebrating, as it did. 
the wooden wedding of the Brotherhood. No 
professional speakers had been invited, but 
each had an opportunity, if he wished, to say 
something pertinent. There was no dearth of 
"talk." 

1890. 

At about this time the Brotherhood had 
weathered a crisis; some of its members 
dropped off and others were lukewarm m 
their support. However, the "old guard" was 
undismayed, and a year after, on the 30th of 
December. 1890. fifty of the members of the 
"B. C. T." and their friends again met at the 
Marlborough for a love feast, again under 
the chairmanship of J. F. Hitchcock, who 
later resigned the chair to John H. Black, 
the toastmaster. Mr. Hitchcock before re- 
tiring congratulated the Brotherhood upon 
its growth and the beginning of practical 
work. He dwelt with considerable earnest- 
ness upon the desirability of establishing an 
"Immediate Relief Fund " which might be 
drawn upon when needed, and which would 
do away with the necessity of taking up 
collections or circulating subscription sheet*. 
Gustav Tuck, C. E. Hopkins, W. B. Walker. 
Colonel Ammon and others spoke briefly, and 
Edward Salt favored the company with sev- 
eral songs. 



1891. 

The seventh dinner was again given at the 
Marlborough on the evening of December 
30, 1891, presided' over by John A. McQuillan. 
On this occasion Brother J. F. Hitchcock, 
in a touching speech, called up the memory 
of Charles Plummer,* the founder and first 
president ot the Association, whose portrait 
(kindly lent by his widow) stood at the head 
of the table decorated with smilax, as did also 
the emblem and the menu of the first banquet. 
Samuel Gabriel was called upon for a few 
remarks, to which he responded, closing his 
speech with a suggestion that in their hour of 
gladness they remember the poor. A proposi- 
tion was made to take up a collection for the 
fund of the Hospital Saturday and Sunday- 
Association, which was enthusiastically re- 
ceived, the result being over fifty dollars. 
Other speakers were Horace S. Ridings, John 
H. Black, Jonas Langfeld and G. W. Knott. 

1892. 

The eighth dinner at the Marlborough, on 
the 28th of December, 1892, was attended by 
fully 100 persons. In the absence of the pres- 
ldent, Brother Trabue Van Culin, John H 
Black presided. There were present as guests 
Will Carleton, the Hon. W. Waller, ex-gov- 
ernor of Connecticut, J. C. Harvey, John G. 
Hart, vice-president of the Commercial Trav- 
ellers' Club, James D. Mandeville, vice- presi- 
dent of the Tenderloin Club, and Professor 
Truman. 

In the course of the evening Brother Black 
announced to the members of the Broth- 
erhood that the Commercial Travellers' Club 
desired to have them affiliate with the lat- 
ter club, and called upon Mr. George W. 
Knott, the president of th« club, to further 
enlighten the assembly upon the subject. 

Mr. Knott briefly told the history of the 
Commercial Travellers' Club, which in 1890- 
'91 began with a membership of six and no 
capital, and a year later numbered three hun- 
dred, had a well-appointed club-house with 
twenty-two rooms, hired for five years at a 
rental of $4000 per year and a reserve fund 
towards building a house of its own. The 
ambition of the club, Mr. Knott continued, 
was to draft into its membership the 250,000 
travellers throughout the United States (of 
which 116,000 belonged to New York City) 
and in time to establish a chain of commer- 
cial travellers' clubs to reach from Portland, 
Me., to San Francisco, Cal. He cautioned 
the commercial men present not to overlook 
the desirability of combining together for the 
protection of their interests and those of their 
employers quite as much as for the comfort 
and pleasure they might enjoy through such 
clubs; that as their employers now figured 
their expenses a part of their salaries, every 
movement on their part that enabled them to 
reduce expenses would accrue to their benefit 
in the shape of increased salaries quite as 
much as it would to the profit of their 
firms. A portion of this saving might be ac- 
complished through pressure which a united 
effort of a majority of the travellers could 
bring to bear on railroad companies and the

proprietors of hotels; another portion might 
be saved by a greater exercise of economy and 
a recognition of the fact that the money they 
were spending was not in fact money be- 
longing to others, but might become a part of 
their own salaries if they were inclined to 
work to that end. Finally he explained that 
it was the desire of the club of which he was 
president to have as its members the whole 
of the Brotherhood, and that it would to that 
end waive the question of initiation fee. He 
also showed that this would not necessitate 
the extinction of the Brotherhood as a separ- 
ate organization, but, on the contrary, that 
it would help to make the parent organization 
—for so he regarded the "B. C. T."— stronger, 
in that it gave them a permanent home which, 
with its necessarily restricted membership, it 
would otherwise probably never be able to 
obtain. The proposal seemed to meet with 
general approval, and after the banquet a 
number of members registered their names 
for admission into the Commercial Travellers' 
Club. 

1893. 
The ninth dinner, also at the Marlborough, 
on the 28th of December, 1893, was attended 
by the largest number ever present on these 
occasions— covers being laid for no guests. 
The president, John H. Black, as usual, pre- 
sided in a most acceptable manner. Among 
the guests who entertained the. Brotherhood 
on that occasion were J. C. Harvey, who read 
a humorous poem relating the career of a 
museum freak, in which book and stationer* 
trade terms were used with a happy and tell- 
ing effect; Will Carleton, E. Russell Throck- 
morton, John L. Shepherd and P. Daly, the 
comedian of "Kelly the rolling-mill man* 
fame, who tried to live up to his motto, "be 
a gentleman, let it be ever so painful." 

1894; 

Wc now reach the tenth annhersary held 
on the 27th of December, 1894, with President 
John Hovendon in the chair. The banquet- 
room of the Marlborough was thronged with 
a merry company and the best of spirits pre- 
vailed. The president, in his opening address, 
said that "the Brotherhood reports favorable 
progress, and having weathered its most criti- 
cal period is bound to grow in strength and 
influence. Its charitable work, though done 
so modestly that outsiders are hardly aware 
of it, is considerable. As a factor in build- 
ing up the esprit de corps among its mem- 
bers, its work is not to be slightly regarded. 
And as a real, solid comfort to its members 
at the end of each year, why, it is regarded as 
a tremendous success by all who meet with it 
on the occasion \>f its annual banquet." As 
usual the speakers were recruited from those 
present,, and many new stories and "chest- 
nuts" were passed around. The guest of 
honor was the present Mayor of New York, 
the Hon. George B. McClellan, then president 
of the Board of Aldermen. 

1895. 
In 1895 the "B. C. T. w found themselves 
on the evening of December 27 in one of the 
dining rooms of the Manhattan Athletic 



Club at Fifty-fifth Street and Madison Ave- 
nue, under the leadership of their president. 
Jonas Langfeld. There they were treated to 
a vaudeville show, which proved an entire 
success. By this time the "old guard" had 
been thinned out considerably through death 
and desertion. However, the "B. C. T." kept 
its front boldly and was undismayed. 

1896. 

The twelfth gathering found the "B. C. T." 
back again at the Marlborough on the 29th of 
December, 1896, with Horace S. Ridings as 
president. The city governments of New 
York and Philadelphia were represented by 
the Mayor of New York, William Strong, 
and the Hon. Edwin S. Stuart, ex-Mayor of 
Philadelphia, who to the trade is better 
known as "Leary's." Besides these there 
were present the Hon. Mr. Goldenhorn, of 
the New Jersey legislature; Lee Fairchild, 
the "Artemus Ward" of the Pacific Coast; 
Thomas Ballantyne, a professional enter- 
tainer, and others. On the whole, this was the 
most dignified entertainment ever provided 
by the Brotherhood. 

1897. 

The thirteenth dinner, held on the 28th of 
December, 1897, at the Marlborough, with 
President Albert D. MacMullen, showed a 
falling off in attendance — only thirty-eight be- 
ing present. However, those present made 
up in spirits what was lacking in numbers, 
and the time went quickly enough. J. C. 
Harvey brought down the house by reading 
an original poem, which he called "With the 
Boys of the Brotherhood." It abounded in 
clever "hits" on almost all the members pres- 
ent, which were enjoyed as much by those 
at whom they were aimed as by the rest of 
the company. Mr. Harvey was followed by 
Thomas Hutchinson, who sang several songs 
very acceptably. Then followed talks by 
James O. Bates, H. M. Caldwell, A. Growoll, 
Horace Ridings, W. J. Kelly, J. H. Black, 
and several songs by John Solomon. 

1898. 

The fourteenth dinner on the 28th of De- 
cember, 1898, at the Marlborough, found 
about thirty-five present. Many were absent, 
the president, H. M. Caldwell, among the 
number, on account of illness. Mr. Hovendon 
acted as chairman. After dinner had been 
served, Brother Hovendon called attention 
to the fact that, owing to changes in business 
conditions, many of the members of the "B. 
C. T." were obliged to make trips even earlier 
than ever, and that for this reason it might 
become necessary in the future to change the 
date of the dinner, and possibly, the form of 
entertainment. His regrets at the absence of 
the President of the Brotherhood were warm- 
ly seconded by all present, and Brother Cald- 
well's health was drunk standing. On this 
occasion word' was received from Brother 
McQuillan, whose condition was reported to 
be quite hopeless. 

1899. 

The fifteenth gathering of the "B. C. T." 
degenerated into a beefsteak orgy, at Walter

[No. 1771] Jan. 6, 1906 



D. Gilman's. Bedford Ave., near Fulton SU 
Brooklyn on the 27th of December, 1899. F. 
T. J. Nunan was president, and Alderman J. 
H. Mclnnis, long connected with the book- 
trade, Thomas Ballantyne and Mr. Sumner 
entertained the company. Alderman J. H. 
Mclnnis was to speak to the toast, "The 
Issue of the Day," but he confined himself to 
the issues of the hour, which, he thought, 
were to enjoy in full measure the opportunity 
of meeting socially and for the exchange of 
friendly greetings, promising ample police 
protection to those who might need it on their 
way to the wilds of Manhattan. Mr. Ballan- 
tyne at intervals regaled the company with 
amusing stories, and Mr. Summer, one of the 
guests of the Brotherhood, sang acceptably 
several popular ballads, the Brotherhood join- 
ing in the chorus. 

1900. 

On the 27th of December, 1900, the Brother- 
hood had touched bottom in Healy's Dungeon, 
Columbus Avenue and Sixty-sixth Street, 
where another beefsteak orgy was held to the 
tune of a "coon band/' under the presidency 
of A. F. Turner. The historian would*, if he 
could, expunge the memory of this faux pas 
of the "B. C TV 

1901. 

On the evening of December 30th, 1901, 
fifty-seven of the Brotherhood of Commercial 
Travellers assembled in the cosy dining-room 
of the Hotel Wallace, at 121 Fifth Avenue, 
to discuss the seventeenth annual dinner given 
by the Brotherhood. After dinner the pres- 
ident, H. J. Epping, congratulated the "B. C. 
T." upon having roused itself again, and upon 
having risen Phenix-like from the caves of 
the West Side to feast in gild*ed halls on the 
avenue of greatest reputation in the city. He 
trusted, that, having started so auspiciously in 
the new century, the Brotherhood would for 
many years maintain its organization on a 
high level of dignity and sociability. The rest 
of the evening was taken up pleasantly by 
those master entertainers, J. C. Harvey, Tom 
Ballantyne and Professor Hutchinson. 

1902. 

The eighteenth dinner was given on 
the evening of December 29, 1902, at the 
Kensington Hotel, Fifth Avenue and Fif- 
teenth Street. Though the weather was 
wretched, forty-five enthusiasts put in an 
appearance in the gayly-decorated dining- 
room in the rear of the cafe. The Committee 
of Arrangements had made ample provision 
for the comfort and entertainment of their 
guests, in which they were ably assisted by 
the Reception Committee. 

After the excellent dinner of eight courses 
had been disposed of, F. T. J. Nunan, chair- 
man of the Souvenir Committee, claimed the 
attention of the Brotherhood, and in a felici- 
tous speech presented to the outgoing presi- 
dent, Clarence A. Caldwell, the badge of his 
office, an ivory gavel, suspended from a green 
and red watered silk ribbon, the colors being 
those of the "Queen's Own" of Canada, of 



which Mr. Caldwell, a Canadian by birth, 
was an officer. Mr. Caldwell responded brief- 
ly and was lustily hailed as a "jolly good 
fellow." 

Among the speakers were James L. Ford, 
author of "The Literary Shop," etc. ; Henry 
A. Collins and George McLeod, representing 
the Canadian trade, and John H. Black. A. 
Growoll reviewed the history of the Brother- 
hood from its beginning in December, 1885, 
until the present time, which was suitabh 
complemented by remarks by W. J. Kelly, the 
senior president of the Brotherhood present 
on this occasion. The speaking was inter- 
spersed with music, and song and story by 
Messrs. Graham and Lester. 

1903. 

The nineteenth dinner was given on the 
29th of December, 1903, once more at the 
Marlborough Hotel, the favorite resort of 
travelling men. There were present upwards 
of fifty persons, and Brother John Bacon pre- 
sided. 

Among the speakers of the evening was J. 
C. Harvey, an old friend of the Brotherhood, 
who concluded his remarks by reading a 
poem, using as his text the line from John 
Boyle O'Reilly's poem, beginning with "I'd 
rather live in Bohemia." We quote, with 
permission, the opening and closing stanzas: 

"I'd rather live in Bohemia than in any other land/* 
So spake the soul of the poet, with the touch of a 

master hand. 
The dear old white-haired singer is at rest beneath 

the sod. 
But that which was best and brightest, his song-soul, 

now with God. 
Can never die in Bohemia, for he laid before her 

shrine 
A wreath of rhyme immortal, with the burst of a 

thought divine. 
He linked all the past and present in a glorious to- 
day. 
And warm hearts beating truly, he crowned with a 

wreath of bay. 
And for us who knew and loved him, what else is 

there left to do. 
But to stand here to-night in Bohemia, and swear 

that his words rang true. 

This is the real Bohemia, where a bit of pasteboard 
white, 

And — a name — is enough to gather the friends that 
you see to-night; 

Tfcis is the real Bohemia, where a joke must have 
its point, 

And a jest that is only vulgar means a man's nose 
out of joint. 

The vagabonds of Bohemia we recognize as we 
should, 

But they dare not cross these portals till the vaga- 
bonds make good. 

And once inside of Bohemia, what hope ye there to 
6nd? 

Not only those who can listen when bright mind 
answers mind. 

But those who can thrill your senses and lift you to 
the skies, 

On the wing3 of song till you enter the gates of 
Paradise. 

For . vassal and % King in Bohemia have natures 
strangely blent. 

Where God-given gifts are plenty and the greatest- 
Temperament. 

And they who are blessed of Heaven with its only 
foretastes here 

Are swayed by the wings of Fancy and subject to 
atmosphere. 

Reflecting the. moods of the moment, of joy, or sor- 
row, or pain*

Bat ever the smile to cheer you like the sunshine 

after the rain. 
That's why I love Bohemia, where the masks are 

laid aside. 
And a warm heart beating truly is never a thing to 

deride. 
Oh! "I'd rather live in Bohemia than in any other 

land," 
I'd rather be poor in Bohemia than rich in a palace 

grand! 
Apart from the friends that love us and reckon us 

at our worth, 
I tell you, boys, Bohemia — is the only place on earth. 

Colonel William E. Dougherty of the 
United States Army, commandant of Fort 
Columbus, at Governor's Island, who was 
present with several of his staff, responded 
felicitously to the toast "The Army," and A. 
Growoll spoke on "The Drummer—His Mis- 
sion and Ideals." The speaking was inter- 
spersed with stories, music and song, gener- 
ously provided by Thomas Ballantyne and a 
quartette. 

1904. 

The twentieth annual dinner of the Bro- 
therhood was given on Friday evening De- 
cember 30, 1904, in the College Room of the 
Hotel Astor. It was first intended to give 
the dinner in the Yacht Room, but the room 
being found too small the Brotherhood and 
its friends were seated in the larger College 
Room. This room, decorated with exquisite 
frescoes symbolic of various phases of col- 
lege life, college arms and insignias, etc., was 
brilliantly lighted and gayly festooned with 
flowers and holly. Upwards of fifty persons 
were present, and presided over by Charles 
Walton, affectionately known to his many 
friends in the trade as "Pop" Walton. After 
the coffee had been served, Mr. Walton, in 
addressing the gathering, thanked the Bro- 
therhood warmly for the many tokens of 
affection received by him throughout his con- 
nection with the fraternity of travelling men, 
and trusted that the bond of sympathy that 
held the organization of the "B. C. T." to- 
gether for nearly a generation would grow 
stronger and endure for another generation 
and beyond. With a touching reference to 
the brethren who had been called to rest 
during the past year Mr. Walton closed his 
remarks. Mr. Tibbits, an old friend of the 
Brotherhood, then favored the company with 
a number of vocal selections and some well- 
told stories. A. Growoll, John H. Black, 
William B. Walker, Jonas Langfeld and John 
Hovendon were among the speakers. 

As the dinner was opened by observing the 
time-honored custom of singing "Auld Lang 
Syne," so was it closed for the twentieth time 
by singing "Vive la Compagnie" Brother 
William J. Kelly leading. 

I90S. 

The Brotherhood of Commercial Traveller! 
has to-night for the twenty-first time come 
together to renew old, and to form new 
friendships. And it has come together and 
been held together not for any material bene- 
fit or sordid consideration, but through sen- 
timent alone. This sentiment has been kept 
alight as a sacred flame by the little band 
who stood at the cradle of the Brotherhood, 



for the encouragement of the young men who 
are to come out of a new geueration to knit 
closer and ever closer these fraternal rela- 
tions without which man descends to the 
estate of "dumb driven cattle." May this 
element of sentiment be kept aflame to warm 
the hearts and to cheer the prospects of gen- 
erations of commercial travellers yet to come ; 
then the work of those who have laid the 
foundation and builded the structure of the 
"B. C. T." thus far, will not have been in 
vain, and a better day will dawn because of 
their labors. 

" T Jj« King »s dead, Long live the King !" 
The old guard," having nursed this organiz- 
ation from infancy to the dawn of manhood, 
considers this a fitting time to entrust its 
further growth to younger, if not abler, 
hand's. As this will be a task of no mean im- 
portance and responsibility, the transfer of 
the Brotherhood of Commercial Travellers to 
the youngsters must be performed by one 
who was intimately concerned in its horning 
and nurture, and therefore able to give advice 
and caution to the new custodians. And who 
so fitting to perform this service among the 
many able ones present on this occasion as 
the Grandfather of the Brotherhood— at least, 
in point of seniority of office— Brother Wil- 
liam J. Kelly. The historian in closing would 
advise the new regime to "screw its courage 
to the sticking-place and it will not fail." 

After songs and stories by William Tomp- 
kins, William Redmond and Frank Fogarty, 
James Clarence Harvey, the poet laureate of 
the Brotherhood, read the following poem: 

WB SALUTE YOU. 

We boast to-i'.ight a stripling who has grown. 

In sturdy strength, at last, to man's estate. 
The years of boyhood have so swiftly flown, 

The veterans present almost hesitate 
To give the reins of power, the driver's seat. 

To one so unacquainted with the run, 
And yet they come to-night, to proudly greet 

Their stalwart infant, aged Twenty-one. 

In Ancient Rome, upon the bloody sands, 

The gladiators turned to Caesar's throne 
And greeted him with high, uplifted hands, 

While wild beasts rent the air with growl and 
groan. 
"Ohl Caesar! We who are about to die, 

Salute you! M And in very truth. 
To-night we hear a scmewhat similar cry: 

"We ag£d men, now step aside for youth." 

When England's king bestows Victoria's cross, 

That guerdon sought for by the bravest men. 
These are the words with which the gift is given, 

Words rich in thought, beyond all tongue or pen. 
"Upon your breast is placed Victoria's cross, 

Because distinguished valor has been shown, 
In presence of the enemy and this 

Shall make respect from all mankind your own/' 
That little symbol, which the unclosed hand 

Might easy hide from all men. if it would, 
Bears testimony to more than duty done 

And gives the hero England's gratitude. 
He who has won his country's noble gift, 

And bends beneath the royal accolade, 
Recalls the while the roll of musketry, 

The glittering flash of sword and sabre blade. 

He sees around him, swarthy, smoke-stained foes. 

With muscles knotted in the heat of strife; 
He knows each glance foretells the sweep of death, 

Each thrust an end to throbbing, human life. 
He feels again the torrent of his blood 

That sweeps along his veins, like fiercest fire: 
He sees the avenue of slaughtered dead. 

That stood between him and his heart's desire.

Then comes the flush of pride when royalty 

Forsakes the throne to take him by the hand. 
He hears: "Well done! Oh! faithful unto death: 

No more obey, but rise and take command.** 
He may recall that stern, old Scottish law, 

Which held supreme, that rigid, simple plan, 
That "He should take who has the power to take 

And having taken, let him keep who can." 

Great men have sprung from such a law as this, 

Because against a tide of wilful wrong, 
Breast high they stood and swept all things aside 

And stood their ground because God made them 
strong. 
The days of muscle, though, have passed away. 

Save as it serves to prop the o'crworked brain. 
And intellect to-day sits on the throne, 

'Gainst which brute strength still strives but strives 



Each man can win, however weak his arm, 

If not a cross of bronze, a golden crown, 
Who bravely girds his armor for life's fray, 

Who meets the foe and fearless fights them down, 
"Distinguished Valor," these the watchwords are, 

And enemies are lurking everywhere. 
No life so* narrow but the chance is given 

To win renown, to nobly do and dare. 

The battle need not be of smoke and fire. 
Of blood stained steel and whistling shot and 
shell. 

It is enough to go where honor calls. 

Stand by the right and do your duty well. 

Now the- world will not ask what you're going 
to do. 

It will ask of you: "What have you done?" 
And it stands at your elbow to question your deeds, 

From the rise to the set of the sun. 

It will judge and misjudge. It will praise and 
deride, 

If you stand at the front for awhile. 
But, be wary. The distance is not very wide 

Between the world's frown and its smile. 

The man who is courted to-day for his wit, 
For his humor, to-morrow is spurned, 

And the lesson he thinks he has mastered to-day 
To-morrow must all be unlearned. 

It is not enough to be known by the world. 

You must prove that you're worth being known, 
Or just when you grasp at the bubble of Fame, 

Like a Will-o-the-wisp, it has flown. 

The mightiest rock will be shivered at last, 
If you strike with persistence and zeal. 

The sun's steady rays, when the Winter is past, 
The earth, 'neath the snowdrifts reveal. 

There is no royal road to the goal of success. 

You must labor and struggle and strive, 
And the progress that marks every effort sublime 

Will keep Hope, the soul's refuge, alive. 

There are failures to face, in this work-a-day world, 
Disappointments that worry and sting, 

But back of them all are the motives divine, 
And this is the lesson they bring: 

Our yesterdays are blocks with which we build, 

Foundations for the structure of to-day. 
And our to-morrows are but fleeting clouds, 

The breath of circumstance may blow away. 
Were we to labor for ourselves alone, 

Small need for aching brow and weary brain. 
We strive and struggle for posterity 

And hope to widen manhood's great domain, 
Who seeks for self, tears down where he should 
build. 

Who builds for others wins the wreath of bay; 
Our yesterdays should then be broad and strong, 

To hold aloft a glorious to-day. 
If we were mortal, life were spent in vain, 

So brief it is, so full of toil and tears. 
But, since immortal, Oh! How grand to know 

Each noble effort lives eternal years. 
Ambition. Hope. Faith. Duty. Tender love. 

Each one, to help us, has its place within. 
Awake from dreams 1 The sun illumes the sky. 

And bids us let our bigger lives begin. 

James Clarence Habvet. 



Brother William J. Kelly then closed the 
exercises of the evening by turning over to 
"the youngsters" the management of the af- 
fairs of the Brotherhood in the following 
short address: 

"Twenty-one years may seem a long time 
to many of you, but for the 'old guard' of 
the Brotherhood, as we look back, it seems 
as if it were but a yesterday. I want to speak 
to-night for my colleagues here, the remnant 
of the men who sat down twenty-one years 
ago around the table of old Morelli's and 
pledged themselves, there and then, to an 
ideal — which was to foster a fraternal spirit 
and to create a Brotherhood for the craft. 
Our presence here to-night is sufficient evi- 
dence to you that we, at least, have kept that 
pledge, and we are proud of the fact that we 
may be with you and see the Brotherhood a 
living thing. We have just heard a new 
name sounded in this banquet hall to-night, 
namely, 'the youngsters/ and I take it for 
granted that our historian, Brother Growoll, 
means the young stalwarts of this organiza- 
tion, headed by Cupples, Roach and that 
youngster of all the youngsters, Hovendon. 
That name will stick to you until you have 
served the term the 'old guard' has served, 
and when you have a record of another gen- 
eration behind you you will be entitled to 
retire with the rank of veteran. I want to 
say to you boys that while the mantles of 
these Elijahs fall on your shoulders to-night, 
you must not think that we will be like the 
prophet of old — translated. 'Not on your 
life!' We will be here and strive mightily 
with you, and give you a hustle for the busi- 
ness of the road. And as the years roll 
around, and our president calls us 'from 
labor to refreshment,' we will be here in our 
places to eat and drink with you, and to 
make merry around the table of our Brother- 
hood. 

"One word more, and that is a voice from 
the 'side lines:' Boys, the old veterans have 
played the game, and to-night we pass you 
the ball ; take it with a grip of steel and carry 
it down the line of the field of time, and 
make as many good goals as the boys have 
done who have played the game before you." 

The company then broke up, joining 
Brother Kelly in singing "Vive la Com- 
pagnie."

THE BOOKSELLERS' LEAGUE. 

The Booksellers' League will give a 
Ladies' Night on the evening of January 17. 
Among the entertainers will be Mr. and Mrs. 
Barclay Dunham, who have kindly consented 
to favor the League with their song-talk, en- 
titled "Some American Song Writers." E. P. 
Lyle, the author of "The Missourian," has 
also promised to assist in entertaining the 
League. 

LITERARY AND TRADE NOTES. 

The American News Company have just 
added to their Library of Popular Fiction an 
edition, in paper covers, of Mrs. Amelia E. 
Barr's novel of New York life, entitled 
"Girls of a Feather." 

John W. Luce & Co. have in preparation a 
"Musical Dictionary," by Nathan Haskell 
Dole, which is intended especially to meet the 
wants of those desirous of understanding the 
descriptive programmes distributed at con- 
certs. 

Thomas Y. Crovvell & Co. announce that 
Anna R Brown Lindsay's little book, "What 
is Worth While," has just reached the 250th 
thousand mark, and that they are called upon 
to reprint the book in constantly increasing 
editions. 

The death of Henry Harland will arouse 
interest in the special autograph edition of 
his latest published story, "My Friend Pros- 
pero." This edition de luxe, which was 
brought out at the time of the publication of 
the regular edition by McClure, Phillips & 
Co. has a collotype portrait signed by the au- 
thor. It is a limited edition of 500 copies, of 
which a few remain. 

William J. Kelly, representing McLough- 
lin Bros., will start next week on his annual 
Canadian trip, to be gone till the end of 
February. Mr. Kelly will carry a number of 
new and very attractive lines, to which others 
will be added from month to month, his firm 
having decided to distribute its publishing 
throughout the year, instead of reserving all 
its publications for the fall season. 

Delavan S. Miller, Watertown, N. Y., 
formerly of the bookselling firm of D. S. 
Miller & Co., has just brought out a volume 
of his war reminiscences, entitled "Drum 
Taps in Dixie." Mr. Miller went to the 
front during the war between the States as a 
drummer boy when only thirteen years of 
age, and his book therefore is said to be 
equally interesting to the veterans and to the 
younger generation. 

The Oxford University Press has just 
brought out a scholarly and complete edition 
of "The Poetical Works of William Blake." 
The text is taken verbatim from the manu- 
script, engraved and letterpress sources, with 
variorum readings and extensive bibliograph- 
ical notes and prefaces by John Sampson, the 
librarian of the University of Liverpool, an 
enthusiastic and painstaking student of 
Blake's writings. 

Fleming H. Revell Company are about to 
bring out a book by Dr. R. A. Torrey, the 
evangelist, entitled "How to succeed in the 
Christian Life." Dr. Torrey in his introduc- 



tion says that he needed a book to put in the 
hands of those beginning the Christian life 
and not finding one was driven to prepare 
this, and he issues it in the hope that it will 
be useful to young converts and older ones, 
too, who have made no Christian progress. 

Raoul Renault, Quebec, Canada, has just 
published a work written by him, entitled 
"Debuts de rimprimerie." In the fourth 
chapter, entitled "Developpements de rimpri- 
merie," M. Renault gives an account of the 
introduction of printing in America, includ- 
ing the beginnings of printing in Canada. 
The work, which is illustrated with portraits 
of the early printers and facsimiles of their 
work, is limited to 300 numbered copies at $1 
each. (74 p. sq. 8°, pap.) 

Harper & Brothers will publish shortly 
"The Long Arm," a new story of adventure 
by Samuel M. Gardenhire, author of "The 
Silence of Mrs. Harrold." Le Droit Con- 
nors, one of the characters in the author's 
former book, is the central figure in the 
forthcoming book. They will also bring out 
this month the eleventh volume of their 
American Nations Series, being entitled "The 
Federalist System," by John Spencer Bassett, 
Professor of History in Trinity College, N. 
C. The volume deals with the first year of 
our national life under the Constitution and 
the problems of international relations which 
at that time were fraught with great peril. 

McLoughlin Brothers will publish in 
February the initial volumes of a new series 
to be entitled the Young Folks' Colonial Li- 
brary. These volumes in this series are de- 
signed not only to amuse the young reader, 
but also to supplement materially the study 
of the history of their country, particularly 
that part concerning the war for independ- 
ence. The books will be bound in cloth, 
small i2mo, stamped in colors, with litho- 
graphic frontispieces and will be supplied 
with numerous illustrations in tints. The 
first volumes will be "The Story of John 
Paul Jones" and "The Story of Ethan Allen, 
the Green Mountain Boy," both by Percy K. 
Fitzhugh. Other volumes in preparation are 
"The Story of General Francis Marion, the 
Bayard of the South," and "The Story of 
Montgomery." 

The Century Company will publish short- 
ly "In Old Bellaire," by Mrs. Mary Dillon, 
author of "The Rose of Old St. Louis." Bel- 
laire is the name of a little southern Penn- 
sylvania town, where the story is set. A lov- 
able New England lass, a dashing Southern 
soldier, and the delightful family of the pres- 
ident of the Bellaire college are among the 
dramatis persona*. They have also nearly 
ready two new volumes of their American 
State Series, entitled "Local Government in 
the United States," (cities excepted,) by Pro- 
fessor John A. Fairlie, of the University of 
Michigan; and "American Legislatures and 
Legislative Methods," by Professor Paul S. 
Reinsch, of the University of Wisconsin. 
They have also in preparation a "Brownie 
Primer." intended for the very littlest read- 
ers, with illustrations from Palmer Cox's 
Brownie book, but entirely new text; and a 
new issue in their Educational Series, entitled

NOTES ON AUTHORS. 

L. Frank Baum is spending the holidays 
in Italy and revising a new book of "Fairy 
Tales" for publication this year by the Reilly 
& Britton Company, of Chicago. He is said 
to have completed arrangements to make a 
trip up the Nile for a thousand miles. When 
he returns to this country next summer he 
will write a new series of tales about charac- 
ters drawn from "The Fairies of the Nile." 

Andrew Carnegie will spend the winter at 
Cumberland Island, Ga., with the intention of 
writing his autobiography. It. is reported that 
he has invited his former partners in the steel 
business to furnish him with data and remin- 
iscences. It is said Mr. Carnegie will begin 
with his humble birth, trace his efforts to ob n 
tain knowledge from the library of Colonel 
Anderson, of Allegheny, and give in detail 
his rise from messenger boy to head of the 
steel industry.

NOTES IN SEASON. 

Little, Brown & Co. have just ready E. 
Phillips Oppenheim's new novel, "A Maker 
of History/' and "The Sage Brush Parson," 
by A. B. Ward, fully described by us a week 
ago. 

George W. Jacobs & Co. offer as appro- 
priate gifts for the Valentine season special 
editions of "Phases, Mazes and Crazes of 



Love," by Minna Thomas Antrim; "Shake- 
speare's Sweetheart," by Sara Hawks Ster- 
- ^Kng ; and the Love Tale Series, five volumes* 
^including English, Irish, Scotch, German and 
American love tales. These books are daint- 
ily bound and tied with a ribbon and supplied 
^with a special card "To My Valentine." 

Doubleday, Page & Co. have just brought 
out, after many delays, the authorized edition 
of Dr. C. G. Schillings's remarkable book, 
"Flashlights in the Jungle;" also, an elabor- 
ate book on "The Country Home," by Charles 
Edward Hooper, a practical manual, pro- 
fusely illustrated, with definite plans and 
suggestions for every feature of a country 
house. They will bring out on the 17th inst. 
Miss Ellen .Glasgow's novel, "The Wheel of 
Life," a story of life in New York City, in 
which the brilliant frivolity of society is set 
forth, and the character of a real man is 
made attractive; also the seventh instalment 
of "The Dog Book," which will be completed 
in March. 

Dodd, Mead & Co. will publish on the 20th 
inst. "Barbara Winslow— Rebel," by Eliza- 
beth Ellis, which is not, as the title might 
imply, a Civil War story, but a tale of ad- 
venture and romance, the heroine of which 
is not afraid of either men, mice or devils. 
The book will have several full-page illustra- 
tions, with a clever little drawing at the end 
of each 'chapter, and will be attractively 
bound. They have in preparation "The Pa- 
triots," a story of the war between the States, 
1861-1864, by the Rev. Cyrus Townsend 
Brady; "Americans of 1776," by James 
Schouler, author of "Schouler^s History of 
the United States," an original study of life 
and manners, social, industrial and political, 
before the Revolutionary period; also, a se- 
quel to "Pam," in which the career of Pam 
will be traced through her absorption in the 
artistic and bohemian side of London, and 
her life in Ireland, to its most satisfactory and 
happy conclusion. 

McClure, Phillips & Co. will publish on 
the 15th inst. a collection of stories entitled 
"Vrouw Grobelaar and Her Leading Cases," 
by Perceval Gibbon, who represented the 
London Standard in South Africa during the 
Boer war. Mr. Gibbon puts his dozen odd 
tales in the mouth of old Vrouw Grobelaar, 
a fat and garrulous Boer grandmother with 
a penchant for moralizing, who adorns her 
advice to her brood with grim and mys- 
terious folk-lore tales, half Dutch and half 
Kaffir, that have an uncanny power sugges- 
tive of De Maupassant. The superstitions of 
the natives and the religious bigotry of the 
Boers saturate her narratives, but she puts 
into them also a geniality and humor that 
make her a sort of South African Uncle 
Remus. They will publish at the same time 
"Foster's Complete Bridge," a concise hand- 
book of the game, into which is gathered 
everything that a player could possibly need, 
or wish, to know; also, a work on "The 
Cost of Competition," by Sidney A. Reeve, 
whose argument tends towards an advocacy 
of a socialistic state.

Text is in Hebrew. The editor's preface says: "In 
undertaking the task of selecting and editing the 
present scries our aim has been to fill up the void, 
the existence of which must have been painfully felt 
by all who have ever wished to promote the study 
and intelligent appreciation of a branch of litera- 
ture which embodies the thought and sentiments of 
many minds of rare distinction and gifts." A suffi- 
cient number of examples have been included to il- 
lustrate amply all the more important kinds and 
classes of poetry employed. Great pains have been 
taken to give the text correctly.

brochure, published in 1892, and the Norwegians 
have Schjelderup's work, published in 1903, which 
is devoted more to analyses of the composer's work 
than to facts about his life. The author is a per- 
sonal friend of Grieg, and spent some time in his 
Norwegian home. Grieg came in contact with Ole 
Bull, Liszt, and all the celebrated musicians of his

The career of the Sieur de la Salle (the dis- 
coverer of the Mississippi) in a measure links the 
exploits of his compatriot Champlain, in the north, 
with those of Cabeza de Vaca, De Soto and Coronado, 
in the south and southwest, and thus fittingly closes 
the heroic period of Spanish and French exploration 
in North America. The various documents re- 
printed in these two volumes are found in French's 
"Historical collections of Louisiana," pt. 1, Shea's 
^Discovery and Exploration of the Mississippi Val- 
ley," and his "Early voyages up and down the 
Mississippi." The editor has followed closely the 
texts 01 these volumes, excepting where a careful 
collation with later editions of these same documents 
has shown a better reading.

FOUNDED BY F LEYPOLDT. 



JANUARY 13, 1906. 



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

All matter for advertising pages should reach this 
office not later than Wednesday noon, to insure in- 
sertion in the same week's issue. 

Publishers are requested to furnish title page proofs 
and advance information of boolcs forthcoming, bom 
for entry in the lists and for descriptive mention. An 
early copy of each book published should be forward- 
ed, as it is of the utmost importance that the entries 
of books be made as promptly and as perfectly as pos- 
sible. In many cases booksellers and librarians de- 
pend on the Publishers' Weekly solely for their 
information. The Record of New Publications of 
the Publishers' Weekly is the material of the 
"American Catalog/' and so forms the basis of trade 
bibliography in the United States. 



"/ hold every man a debtor to his profes- 
sion, from the which, as men do of course 
seek to receive countenance and profit, so 
ought they of duty to endeavor themselves by 
way of amends to be a help and an ornament 
thereunto"— Lord Bacon. 

THE PRINTERS' STRIKE. 

For the first time within the recollection 
of the present generation the publishing 
trade has been obliged to face a so-called 
"tie-up" of their interests by a labor organ- 
ization. By direction of the International 
Typographical Union, the union printers in 
New York, on the 2d of January, struck for 
an eight-hour day with nine hours' pay and 
a "close shop," the number of men who 
actually went out on strike being estimated 
at upwards of one thousand. Since that 
time, of the 247 printing offices in New York 
City manned by members of the local union, 
two hundred of the smaller offices helplessly 
gave up the struggle a day after their men 
went out. Of this number, twenty-six were 
members of the Typothetae, an organization 
of master printers. Within a week Harper 
& Brothers, the Funk & Wagnalls Company, 
Frank A. Munsey, the Success Company and 
several other concerns have surrendered, re- 
serving, however, a forty-eight hour week, 
under which plan the men can work ten or 
eleven hours a day on publication day, the 
employers by working them six or seven 
hours on other days keeping within the 
forty-eight hour limit. As the men are paid 
by the week this diminishes the hours of 
overtime for which they would have been 
paid under the straight eight-hour rule. 

Among the stronger and larger establish- 
ments to hold out are the printers for the 
Century Company, Doubleday, Page & Co., 
the S. S. McClure Company, the Hill Pub- 
lishing Company, I. H. Blanchard & Co., the 
Knickerbocker Press, William Green and the 



Butterick Company, who had been preparing 
for months to meet the situation, and who 
have succeeded in securing enough men to 
continue their work. 

Inasmuch as there are estimated to be 
98,531 members of the printers' unions in the 
United States, including, presumably, the 
better class of workmen, as against 92,800 
non-union printers, the situation at present is 
a critical one, and fraught with many com- 
plications. The Typotheta, before the strike 
was initiated, expressed itself hopeful of 
meeting the situation without loss of time. 
A school for printers was opened in New 
York for the instruction of machine composi- 
tors, and steps were actually taken for for- 
warding work on the magazines three months 
in advance, and for printing commercial sta- 
tionery, etc., against future call. But, inas- 
much as a considerable portion of the work 
on magazines, the advertising, for example, 
must be done by hand by trained and experi- 
enced workmen, the result is still in doubt, 
though the master printers are hopeful of 
victory. 

The principal argument against the pres- 
ent demand of the printers' unions is that 
the apparently insignificant demand of one 
hour a day less for each individual will in 
the aggregate add considerably to the cost of 
manufacture. It has been variously estimated 
that the increase would add as much as 
twenty-two per cent, and not less thin ten 
per cent, to the prices in vogue up to Decem- 
ber 31, 1905. While the proposed readjust- 
ment of the relations between employers and 
workmen does not pecuniarily benefit the in- 
dividual workman, its definite effect would 
le to increase the number of workmen for 
the same amount of work, or, incidentally, to 
increase the proportion of overtime charges. 
Aside from the fact that such an increase 
would render large printing establishment* 
in cities unable to compete on ordinary plain 
work with printing concerns in smaller or 
rural communities, the increase on work that 
cannot be sent any considerable distance away 
from home would mean a very serious loss to 
firms undertaking such work, or the imposi- 
tion of a burden upon a class who either can- 
not or will not assume it. The tendency for 
some time, at least, will be to reduce the 
amount of printing rather than to increase it, 
and so in the long run the burden will likely 
enough have to be borne by the strikers 
themselves. I; is reported that certain large 
advertising concerns, who are now spending 
$50,000 and upwards, have declared their in- 
tention to deduct the increase from the gross 



48

amount of their bills and to keep them down 
to the amount of their old appropriations. 
That will be unfortunate for business all along 
the line ; but war — is war ! 

There i. c another phase of the strike which 
l>y the Typothetae is considered more vital 
•even than the reduction of time — in fact, is 
considered to be at the bottom of the strike — 
and that is the question of the "close" or 
"open shop." While most of the employing 
printers have no grievance against organiza- 
tion by their employees, they are unalterably 
opposed to the petty and tyrannical interfer- 
ence by the unions with the direction of their 
shops in particular, and to the Typographical 
Union's avowed policy to prevent American 
citizens from earning a living unless they bind 
themselves by a hide-bound oath to their or- 
ganization. 

CARMEN'S MIXED COPYRIGHT. 

The popularity of Bizet's "Carmen," ac- 
cording to the London Daily Graphic, "is as 
great in Germany as in any other country, 
and German bandmasters are looking for- 
ward to playing that favorite music without 
payment to the composer's representatives on 
and after New Year's Day. Bizet died in 
1875, and the Franco-German Convention 
provides that authors' and composers' rights 
in their works cease after thirty years. But, 
though the composer of 'Carmen* is dead, 
and one of the librettists, Meilhac, is also, 
the other, M. Ludovic Hal§vy, is alive and 
well. Hence a legal question has arisen, and 
a German court has decided that the music 
may be played, but that the words may not 
be sung f without payment. An opera is thus 
declared not^to be a harmonious whole, but 
to consist of two distinct parts, words and 
music, in each of which its own particular 
parent has his own particular rights." 



BOOKTRADE ASSOCIATIONS. 

THE BOOKSELLERS' LEAGUE. 

The Booksellers' League has made defi- 
nite arrangements for their Ladies' Night to 
be held on the evening of the 17th inst, with 
the following entertainers: Mr. and Mrs. 
Barclay Dunham, who, as already an- 
nounced, will entertain the company with a 
sing-a-log, entitled "Some American Song 
Writers;" Eugene P. Lyle, Jr., author of 
"The Missourian;" the Rev. Robert E. 
Knowles, author of "St. Cuthbert's," a re- 
markably successful first novel, the soul of 
good humor, whose oratorical powers are 
known throughout the length and breadth of 
Canada; also, Edmund Vance Cooke, author 
of the charming "Chronicles of the Little 
Tot," who has cancelled several engagements 
and is coming from the West specially to en- 
tertain the League. The entertainment wil! 
begin at 7 o'clock sharp, and unless those 
who wish to be present notify Francis Gil- 
man, care Charles Scribner's Sons, on or be- 



fore January 15, no provision can be made 
for them at the table. The tickets for the 
ladies are $2 each, and must also be ac- 
counted for by the 15th inst.

OBITUARY NOTES. 

William Marshall Fitts Rounds, secre- 
tary of the New York Prison Association 
from 1883 to 1902, died January 3, at Acush- 
nct. Mass. Mr. Rounds was born in Paw- 
tucket, R. I., March 26, 1845. Graduating 
from the Harvard Medical School, he entered 
the ranks of journalism, leaving that to en- 
gage in prison reform work. He was the 
author of several novels, including "Achsah," 
"Hal, the Story of the Clodhopper" and 
"Rosecroft," all portraying New England 
rural life. He was connected with both the 
New York and National Prison Reform As- 
sociations for many years, and organized the 
Order of St. Christopher, a non-sectarian 
body, for reformatory work. He was at one 
time associated with the Rev. Dr. Edward 
Everett Hale in the publication of The Leno*- 
a-Hand Record. 

Patrick John Kenedy, senior member of 
the firm of P. J. Kenedy & Sons, publishers 
of Catholic books, at 5 Barclay Street, New 
York City, died suddenly in this city on Jan- 
uary 4. Mr. Kenedy was born in 1843, at 
44 Centre Street, New York City, where his 
father kept a bookstore. He attended the 
Christian Brothers School in Canal Street, 
and for a time sang in the choir of old St. 
Patrick's Cathedral in Mott Street. After 
leaving school he took a position in his 
father's store in Centre Street, which was 
subsequently removed to Mott Street and 
then to Barclay Street. He succeeded to the 
business at his father's death, and steadily 
developed it, adding an important publishing 
business that increased to such an extent that 
in time he took over the whole building at 5 
Barclay Street. In 1895 Pope Leo xm. ap- 
pointed Mr. Kenedy publisher to the Holy 
Apostolic See. He leaves a widow, three 
sons and four daughters. 

Harrison William Weir, the artist and 
author, died at Appledore, Kent, Eng., on 
January 4, aged eighty-two, having beein 
born May 5, 1824. He was widely known as 
a painter of birds and animals, and his death 
removes the last of the original staff of the

Illustrated London News. He helped in the 
making, either by pen or pencil, of more than 
120 books. Of these he considered the chief 
to be "Our Cats, and All About Them," a 
quite unusual work, which long has served 
in England as the basis for judging at cat 
shows. He established the first cat show at 
Crystal Palace, with the purpose of arousing 
interest in the higher breeding of this domes- 
tic pet, so well succeeding that the money 
value of cats rose tremendously. He was 
also a poultry fancier, and another remark- 
able work, "Our Poultry, and All About 
Them/' occupied his attention for nearly 
twenty years. It contains thirty-seven col- 
ored pictures and 350 drawings in black and 
white. 

Dr. William Rainey Harper, president of 
the University of Chicago, died on January 
10, after an illness of over three years. Dr. 
Harper was born July 26, 1856, at New Con- 
cord, Muskingum County, O. He was edu- 
cated in Muskingum College, a Presbyterian 
institution, from which he was graduated with 
the degree of A.B. when only fourteen. He 
devoted himself principally to the study of 
Hebrew, and after three years of private 
work in that direction went to Yale to de- 
vote himself to philology and the Indo-Iraniari 
and Semitic languages. After filling positions 
in various educational institutions he became 
professor of Semitic languages at Yale. In 
1891 Dr. Harper was chosen president of the 
University of Chicago, which, founded • in 
1856, had succumbed to the burden of debt, 
and was being reorganized by the American 
Baptist Education Society, whose most gen- 
erous patron was John D. Rockefeller. In a 
few years Dr. Harper succeeded in turning 
the affairs of the university into a favorable 
direction until now the property and endow- 
ment are valued at over $17,000,000, the stu- 
dents number 3000, and the faculty 361. Dr. 
Harper's activity did not confine itself to col- 
lege channels. He was unceasingly produc- 
tive along literary lines. He was the author 
of "Elements of Hebrew/' "Hebrew Method 
and Manual," "Elements of Hebrew Syntax," 
"Hebrew Vocabularies," "An Introductory 
New Testament Greek Method," "A Teacher's 
Manual for an Inductive Latin Primer," "The 
Prospects of the Small College" and "Ele- 
ments of Latin." He also founded and edited 
The Biblical World, The American Journal of 
Theology and The American Journal of Sem- 
itic Languages and Literature, all of them 
published at the university. 



NOTES ON AUTHORS. 

Dr. William Osler, the eminent medical 
authority, it is authoritatively stated, has re- 
signed the regius professorship of medicine 
in Oxford University, England, and will re- 
turn to Johns Hopkins University about the 
middle of January. Dr. Osier and his wife, 
who is a great-granddaughter of Paul Revere, 
spent Christmas in Boston. His new book, 
"Counsels and Ideals from the Writings of 
William Osier," has just been published by 
Houghton, Mifflin & Co. 



JOURNALISTIC NOTES. 

The quarterly Forum, January-March, con- 
tains an able review by Professor W. P. 
Trent, entitled "New Editions of Franklin." 
The bulk of the article is devoted to the first 
volume of "The Writings of Benjamin Frank- 
ling, Collected and Edited with a Life and 
Introduction by Albert Henry Smyth," whose 
careful, scholarly work receives good, critical 
praise. 

Questioned as to the ownership of Tom 
Watson's Magazine, Mr. Watson recently 
stated to a special correspondent of the New 
York Times: "The only question which can 
be of interest to the public is this, that Tom 
Watson's Magazine is my magazine, as it pur- 
ports to be. My contract gives me full con- 
trol over the magazine, and it is mine be- 
cause I dictate what it shall publish and what 
it shall not publish. Town Topics owns a 
majority of the stock, but not all of it. I own 
a large block, and there are other stockhold- 
ers. But it does not matter in the least who 
owns the majority of the stock. I am the 
magazine. Without me the stock isn't worth 
a red apple, and they* know it."

company, which was indorsed by the Merrill 
& Baker Company. It was alleged that the

by Major Louis Livingston Seamon, who de- 
scribes in detail the effectiveness of the Jap- 
anese Medical Corps and hospital service;

a diary, written by an aristocratic young girl 
just before and during the Paris Revolution. 

L. C. Page & Co. have just brought out 
"The Passenger from Calais," a detective 
story by Arthur Griffith. Next month they 
will publish Morley Roberts's new novel, 
"The Idlers," which on its appearance in 
England received much attention, its exposi- 
tion of the "smart set" in London being 
compared to Mrs. Wharton's treatment of 
American society life in her "House of 
Mirth." 

E. P. Dutton & Co. will publish shortly an 
American edition of "A Life of Walt Whit- 
man," by Henry Bryan Binns, with facsimiles 
of manuscript, etc. ; "Napoleon's Love Story," 
by Gasiorowsky; also, "The Letters of Rich- 
ard Ford, (1797-1858,) a famous nineteenth 
century scholar and author of a "Handbook 
of Spain," the model of the modern guide 
book, edited by Rowland E. Prothero and 
fully illustrated. 

J. B. Lippincott Company have in prepar- 
ation for publication early in the spring "The 
Fall of Tsardom," by Carl Joubert; "Con- 
sumption, its relation to man and civiliza- 
tion," by Dr. John Bessner Huber; "Heroes 
of Discovery in America," by Charles Mor- 
ris; and several works of fiction by such 
well-known authors as E. F. Benson, Louis 
Becke, and Mrs. A. Maynard Barbour, au- 
thor of "That Mainwaring Affair," etc. 

The University Press, of Sewanee, Tenn.. 
has published Milton's "Ode on the Morning 
of Christ's Nativity," with an introduction by 
Dr. Glen Levin Swiggett, head of the De- 
partment of Modern Languages at the Uni- 
versity of the South. The edition has sev- 
eral initial letters by Arthur H. Noll. A 
special edition on Japan paper and bound in 
morocco boards has illuminations by the 



Sister Superior of the Order of St. Mary, in 
Tennessee. 

The John Lane Company announce that 
the recent supplement to the International 
Studio, "Mansions of England in the Olden 
Time," can no longer be supplied in the paper 
edition. In future this book can be supplied 
in cloth only, and beginning with February 
the price will be advanced to $5 net. They are 
publishing for the Transatlantic Society in 
America, of Philadelphia, a reprint of "Inter- 
national Misapprehensions," part of a chapter 
taken from James Fullarton Muirhead's book 
on "America, the Land of Contrasts," setting 
forth an Englishman's view of his American 
cousins. 

The legend that Poe wrote "The Raven" 
in the Fordham cottage in New York was 
supported for a time by the exhibition of a 
stuffed raven in one of its rooms; but the 
legend is set at rest in the introduction in 
the unique four-volume India Paper edition 
of Poe's works recently published by A. S. 
Barnes & Co. It appears that "Tlie Raven* 
was published in 1845, and it was not until 
1846 that Poe took up his residence in the 
Fordham cottage, where he lived from 1846 
to 1849. It was in the Fordham cottage, 
however, that Poe wrote "The Bells" and 
"Annabel Lee," and other poetry, as well as 
some of his prose tales. 

A. S. Barnes & Co. will publish shortly 
"In the Days of Scott," by Tudor Jenks, a 
new volume in the popular Lives of Great 
Writers Series, which tells the life stories of 
the great authors, in whom every one is in- 
terested from the personal point of view. As 
Mr. Jenks says in following the story of 
Scott, the reader is taken from the reign of 
George in. to that of William rv., and from 
the times of the American colonies to those 
of Andrew Jackson. It was in Scott's life 
time that steam and electricity became known, 
and to these agencies is due many of the 
most notable changes which make the pres- 
ent world so different from that into which 
the "Wizard of the North" was born. 

Charles Scribner's Sons will publish 
shortly "The Problem of the Old Testament." 
by the Rev. Dr. James Orr, a scholarly study 
of the subject, which, in 1905, was awarded 
the Bross prize of $6000 at the University of 
Chicago; "Musical Poems for School, Kin- 
dergarten and Home," containing a number 
of Eugene Field's most popular poems, set 
to simple and attractive music by Caro S. 
Senour, so that it may be sung by children 
in the lower school grades; also, a "Robert 
Louis Stevenson Reader," selections from 
Stevenson's prose and poetry suitable for 
children of six and eight years of age, ed- 
ited by Catherine S. Bryce, supervisor of 
primary schools at Newton, Mass. They 
nave just imported a one-volume edition of 
Byron's Poems, revised and edited, with a 
memoir, by Ernest Hartley Coleridge; 
"Whi taker's Almanac," for 1906, which is 
also brought out in an abridged edition, 
bound in paper covers ; "The Faerie Queene." 
in the Caxton Series; also, "Hebrew Ideals,'*

Pt. 2, Genesis, by James Strachan, a new is- 
sue in the Bible-Class Handbook series. 

The twelfth and final volume of the "Jew- 
ish Encyclopaedia," originated and edited by 
Dr. Isidor Singer, will shortly be published 
by the Funk & Wagnalls Company. When 
its editor, in the summer of 1891, at Paris, 
planned his work, convinced that the old 
Jewries of Europe felt too weak to launch it, 
he hoped that the honor of its execution 
would be craved by the young and vigorous 
American branch of the house of Israel. But, 
as Dr. Singer recently wrote to the New 
York Sun, "strange as it may seem, neither 
the Jewish Publication Society of Philadel- 
phia, with its nearly 5000 members and its 
board of directors composed of the richest 
and most influential Hebrews of the United 
States, nor any other group of my coreligion- 
ists felt strong enough, on their own hook, 
to carry the great burden. A Christian house 
had to step into the breach; and, honor to 
whom honor is due, the Funk & Wagnalls 
Company, with its executive committee com- 
posed of Lutherans, Roman Catholics and 
Methodists, deserves the full credit for hav- 
ing enriched American literature with a pio- 
neer work unique in its kind and, according 
to the competent judgment of the foremost 
academicians of Europe, epoch making in the 
history of Oriental studies. 

DOUBLEDAY, PAGE & Co. Will publish On 

February 15 a timely book on "How to Buy 
Life Insurance," by "Q. P.," whose articles on 
"Life Insurance Machine'' in The World's 
Work have attracted considerable attention. 
This is said to be the first book actually writ- 
ten for the policy-holder, prepared in the 
light of all the astonishing revelations by the 
Armstrong committee; "Recollections of 
Thirteen Presidents," by Captain John S. 
Wise; also, "The Lady and the Ladder," by 
Harrison Garfield Rhodes. Their list of late 
winter and spring books includes "Curayl" 
by Una L. Silberrad; "Letters and Recollec- 
tions of George Washington;" "The Interna- 
tional Cook Book," by Alexander Filippini;

TO PUBLISHERS OF SUBSCRIPTION BOOKS 

The Three Essentials to the Success of a 
Subscription Series are (1) Absolute Novelty, 
(2) Supreme Literary Authority, (3) Complete 
Absence of Competition. In the last four 
years the Advertiser has compiled and edited 
four of the most successful Subscription 
Series ever issued in America, the success 
being due to the fact that the essentials 
named were present in each set. He has in 
mind two if not three ideas for Subscription 
Series which possess these Three Essentials 
in full measure, and is in a position to enlist 
the co-operation of a large printing house, 
if an able Publisher is secured. Address

CUPID'S GAME WITH 
HEARTS 

A'collection of letters and documents telling a most 
interesting story. 

It is planned on original lines. In place of telling a 
story like the average novel, the story is told by the 
means of letters and documents. First a letter, written 
on a sheet of note paper, then a telegram or newspaper 
clipping is pasted in the center of a page, each telling 
part of the story till the final conclusion is reached by 
the clipping from a society newspaper announcing the marriage. The book is daintily 
bound and fully illustrated with many full-page drawings. 

The Valentine Edition is put up with a ribbon bow and a large Red Heart embossed 
with "Valentine Greetings" on the box.

Foster's Complete Bridge r. f. foster 

MX All the lovers of Bridge will be glad to know that we have brought out 

■ I the most complete and concise handbook on the game ever published, 
^^ into which is gathered everything a player could possibly need or wish 

to know. It will serve the beginner as an introduction to the rudiments of 
Bridge, and assist the expert with suggestions on the science and strategy of 
play. It explains thoroughly every accepted style and theory of play, while 
making itself the special champion of none. Fine colored diagrams in the 
text of sample hands, illustrating the points made, and a complete set of rules 
add much to the value of the volume.

Vrouw Grobelaar perceval gibbon 

£T Rarely has a short-story volume appeared so much out of the rut, so 

■ I full of the definite genius for dramatic story-telling, as this book of 
^^ South African folklore tales. Vrouw Grobelaar, a garrulous, old Boer 

grandmother, is filled to the brim and running over with the superstitions and 
traditions of the Kaffir Dutch farmers in the Veldt. She puts into her tales, 
with which it is her custom to adorn her advice to her family, the grimness 
and power of De Maupassant and the genial humor of our delightful Uncle 
Remus. Even the most jaded reader will confess their striking originality.

The Cost of Competition sydney a. reeves 

£T A clear and searching inquiry into the economic and moral evils that 
SI result from the excessive commercial trend of modern civilization 
^^ The author's analysis discloses that abnormal rewards for their labo: 
are given to the traders, the commercial class, who thus rob the producers 
His argument leads to the conclusion that some form of barter should b< 
substituted for money exchange ; and this ranks him among the socialis 
economists and followers of Edward Bellamy.

ONE OF THE MOST ORIGINAL BOOKS

PUBLISHED IN YEARS 

C. The cover will speak for itself. At the end of each of the twenty-two chapters 
is a picture illustrating some point about which one has just read. There are also 
full-page illustrations and the wrapper is most unusual. The story is a striking 
romance of adventure, with 

"A HEROINE FEARLESS OF MEN* MICE AND DEVILS" 
and as bewitching and vivacious as any to be found in recent fiction. Perhaps the 
following, quoted from the book, will best describe her :

Mr. Winston Spencer Churchill's life of 
Lord Randolph Churchill 

"Mr. Winston Churchill's life of his father will not disappoint the high expectations 
which have been formed of it. It is a story rich in incident of the most romantic 
career in modern politics. . . . He keeps befpre him the single aim of explaining a 
character which was in many respects obscure, and giving us the clue to its brilliant 
and baffling manifestations. The charm of the book is that it places the central 
figure in exactly the setting that it demands. The scene is crowded with figures ; 
the great game is played in the grand manner ; we hear the hum of voices in the 
house and the applause at the public meeting. The biographer unfolds his story 
with as little comment of his own as may be, but it tells the more on that account. 
and his mere narrative becomes, as it proceeds, a masterly analysis of Parliamen- 
. tary strategy." — Westminster Gazette, London.

Wharton in i The House of Mirth J did for the same social 
class in America, It is an altogether powerful ant] merciless 
dissection of modern society by an exceedingly keen surgeon/ 1

Mr. Roberts gives us the antithesis of * Rachel Marr 1 in an

NOTES IN SEASON. 
Brentano's announce a new edition, in two 
volumes, of Bernard Shaw's "Plays Pleasant 
and Unpleasant," with a special introduction 
by the author. 

A. Wessels Company will publish at once 
"The Struggle/' a strong arraignment of the 
trusts, by Sidney C. Tapp, of Atlanta, Ga., 
the author of "The Story of Anglo-Saxon 
Institutes, or, the Development of Constitu- 
tional Government" 



The American News Company have just 
brought out in their Library of Popular Fie- 
Hon Anna Katharine Green's strong novel, "A 
Matter of Millions." They will bring out on 
/fl**v?5th inst., in the same series, "The Beads 
' ^JSismer," by Amelia E. Barr. 

c Lrrl Page & Co. have just ready Major 
Artki/ Griffiths's new book, "The Passenger 
ron££alais," a clever detective story, full of 
situations and striking climaxes. They 
III publish, as already announced, on Feb- 
ruary 1, "The Idlers," by Morley Roberts. 

The Directors of the Old South Work, 
Boston, have just brought out three timely 
additions to their series of Old South Leaflets, 
(numbers 161-163,) namely, "Franklin's Boy- 
hood," from the autobiography; Franklin's 
"Letters on War and Peace;" and Franklin's 
"Plan for Western Colonies." An earlier 
leaflet, No. 9, contains Franklin's "Plan of 
Union," adopted by the Albany Convention 
in 1754. 

A. C. McClurg & Co. will publish about 
the 1st of February a new edition of the 
Baroness von Suttner's famous book, "Ground 
Arms!" ("Die Waff en Nieder"), which was 
issued by them some years ago, and has been 
out of print. The recent award of the "Nobel 
Peace Prize" to the author for the influence 
her book had in bringing about The Hague 
Tribunal has led to inquiries from all quar- 
ters for the story. 

Dodd, Mead & Co. will publish in the spring 
"Geraldine," a new story by Beatrice Har- 
raden, author of "Ships That Pass in the 
Night," etc. The story has a bookish interest 
from the fact that some very pretty satire and 
comedy are developed in a dialogue of the 
bookworms that delve in a great dictionary 
undertaken by the hero of the story, but 
which progresses at a snail's pace. The title 
of the story of Harrow, by Hpjrace Vachell, 
announced a week ago, is to be "The Hill," 
the hill being Harrow Hill. 

Moffat, Yard & Co. have in press a book 
for men as well as women, entitled "In Van- 
ity Fair," by Eleanor Hoyt Brainerd, in 
which the author gives the "inside story" of 
women's fashions and, what is more impor- 
tant, gives a remarkable picture of the envi- 
ronment which gives the fashions birth ; "The 
Invisible Bond," by Eleanor Talbot Kin- 
kead, a novel of the Kentucky of to-day, with 
illustrations in color by C. Allen Gilbett; 
"Where Speech Ends," a novel of the sym- 
phony orchestra, by Robert Haven Schauffler, 
with an introduction by Henry Van Dyke; 
also, a highly humorous story of the Klondike, 
by Marguerite Merington, entitled "Scarlett 
of the Mounted." When this firm, a year ago, 
started in the publishing business they had 
not a single contract with any author, their 
intention being to first develop their art de- 
partment; before the end of the year, how- 
ever, the books that came to them seemed too 
good to turn away, and they wound up a 
most successful year with eighteen titles of 
books, pictures and calendars on their list.

author a dozen years ago for the purposes of refer- 
ence when forming a collection of scrolls and sketches 
of the old art city of Yang-ch6u on the Grand 
Canal near Chink'iang, will not be found quite 
useless in the hands of foreigners bent on similar

is devoted to some painters of the Manchu dynasty.

I might have mentioned is endless."

book that will prove useful in both the lecture room

subject of electrochemistry must presuppose a work-

been the object of the writer to introduce the sub* 
ject as clearly as possible, dealing with chemistry and 
electricity without assuming too much on the part 
of the student. The book is so written that it may 
be read through as a history by the student, pre- 
senting theory and practice together, with the intro- 
duction of an ample number of experiments to sup- 
plv experimental evidence for the theories advanced.*'

The modern trust company, its functions

Aims to describe the functions and organization 
of the trust company as it exists in the United 
States to-day. Its history, which dates from the 
granting of the first trust company charter in 1822. 
has already been told in a number of interesting 
papers and addresses, and is therefore not repeated. 
Practical experience, consultation of all available lit- 
erature, the examination of trust companies in 
various parts of this country, and conferences with 
their officers, have helped to make a composite pic- 
ture. The forms and systems described are those 
which have commended themselves to the authors' 
judgment as best adapted to the needs of the aver- 
age trust company. Bibliography (6 p.)

Wften Horac; wiote his Satires, Lucretian influence 



was strong upon him; during his mature years, his

first book of the Epistles the influence of Lucretius 
again revives, but in the second book of the Epistles, 
the fourth book of the Odes, and in the Ars poetica 
it is practically absent.

The American Negro Academy was organized 
March 5, 1897, by the founder, Rev. Alex. Crummell, 
for the promotion among negroes of literature, science 
and art, the fostering of higher education, the pub- 
lication of scholarly works and the defense of the 
negro against vicious assaults. The papers here 
given deal with the meaning and need of the move* 
ment to reduce Southern representation; the poten- 
tiality of the negro vote North and West; the mi- 
gration and distribution of the negro as affecting the 
elective franchise; the negro and his citizenship, etc. 
Although favoring the negro the tone is calm and 
the arguments thoughtful.

"It has been the aim of the author to produce a 
book that will prove useful in both the lecture room 
and in the laboratory. Although a work upon the 
subject of electrochemistry must presuppose a work- 
ing knowledge of chemistry and electricity, it has 
been the object of the writer to introduce the sub- 
ject as clearly as possible, dealing with chemistry and 
electricity without assuming too much on the part 
of the student. The book is so written that it may 
be read through as a history by the student, pre- 
senting theory and practice together, with the intro- 
duction of an ample number of experiments to sup- 
plv experimental evidence for the theories advanced."

A sheet of paper blown by a young Englishman, 
from the window of a railroad car, standing on the 
line of the state railroad in the forest of Pozen 
is the cause of the whole story. It is a tale of 
mystery which cannot be anticipated without spoil- 
ing the interest. The scene changes from Paris to 
Devonshire, England. Two mysterious disappearances 
from a Paris hotel, that are not explained until the 
very end, keep the curiosity of the reader at the 
highest point Detectives and diplomats, and im- 
portant officials of England, France, Germany and 
Russia, have a place among the characters.

A story of double identity. Florian Amidon, a 

young western banker, meets with a railroad accident 

which blots out all memory of the past and he only 

recovers consciousness of his real self five years 

later on his way to New York, when he discovers he 

is known as Eugene Brassfield, President of the 

Rr&ssfield Oil Co., of Bellevale, Perm., and has been 

doing business at Bellevale during the missing years. 

Endeavoring to learn just who he is, he consults a 

clairvoyant and occtltist, who claims to K-lve all 

mysteries. With the aid of hypnotism and occult 

measures, his strange life is gradually disentangled, 

tbi results being both startling and amusing. 

Reich, Emil. The failure of the "Higher crit-

Of the five chapters of the present work tlie first 
two chapters appeared in the Contemporary Revicrt. 
and the other three form the substance of various 
lectures given in London, Edinburgh and elsewhere. 
Dr. Reich is an eminent scholar and historian. As 
he says in the Preface, he is not a clergyman nor 
does he servs the ends of any ecclesiastical party. 
"He searches for nothing but truth. Many years 
ago he fully believed in the 'scientific character* of 
higher criticism; but having leearned more about 
life and reality by means of extensive travels and 
varied experience tic has come to the conclusion that 
Higher Criticism is bankrupt as a method of re- 
search, and pernicious as a teaching of religious 
truth. It is a perversion of history and a desecration 
of religion. . . . This little book ... is intended 
not only to destroy the 'scientific' spell of Higher 
Criticism, but also to construct the right method of 
comprehending the Bible."

Many of the most passionate sonnets of Shake- 
speare are dedicated to W. H. It is supposed these 
initials stood for the Earl of Pembroke. Cyril Gra- 
ham held the theory that W. H. was William Hews, 
a young actor who had played women's parts in 
Shakespeare's plays. He committed a forgery of a 
pc 1 trait to piove his theory and then committed 
suicide in shame. The author makes out a clear case 
for William Hews, but his friend Erskinc and he 
both remain doubtful.

ism. Greenwich, Ct, Literary Collector

Wilde believed in socialism and its special in- 
fluence on individualism. He thought property and 
eiverty led to sacrifices of one person for another, 
is thoughts are startlingly put at times, but there 
is food for much meditation in the treatise.

JANUARY 20, 1906. 



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

Publishers 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 forward- 
ed, as it is of the utmost importance that the entries 
of books be made as promptly and as perfectly as pos- 
sible. In many cases booksellers and librarians de- 
pend on the Pubushsss' Wbekxy solely for their 
information. The Record of New Publications of 
the Publishers' Weskly is the material of the 
"American Catalog," and so forms the basis of trade 
bibliography in the United States. 



"/ hold every man a debtor to his profes- 
sion, from the which, as men do of course 
seek to receive countenance and profit, so 
ought they of duty to endeavor themselves by 
way of amends to be a help and an ornament 
thereunto/'— -Lord Bacon. 



THE FRANKLIN BI-CENTENARY. 

This week, on the 17th of January, on the 
occasion of the bicentenary of his birth, the 
world halted in its march for a brief space to 
render homage to the memory of Benjamin 
Franklin — a homage in which the representa- 
tives of the book trade should have taken a 
leading part; for, great as this "many-sided" 
American was as a scientist, as a diplomat, 
as a writer, as a philosopher and moralist, he 
was always first and foremost a printer and 
publisher and bookseller. From his very boy- 
hood "the trade" had a great fascination for 
Franklin, and it was his bookish inclination 
that determined the elder Franklin to make 
his Benjamin a printer, although he already 
had one son in that calling. Up to his 
death he was always interested in the art of 
printing, and his dearest friends and most 
intimate acquaintances were members of the 
craft. Indeed, so strong was his attachment 
for "the trade" and profession that even in 
preparing for death he began his last will and 
testament with the words: "I, Benjamin 
Franklin, printer;" and the epitaph which he 
wrote for himself also defined him as printer, 
and used the analogy of a book "to appear 
once more in a new and more elegant edition, 
revised and corrected by the Author." 

By precept and example, at a time when 
everything connected with letters and the book 
trade was at low ebb and greatly in disrepute, 
Franklin elevated the calling of printer, book- 
seller and journalist to the dignity of a pro- 
fession — a profession honored by and in 
turn honoring him by raising him to posi- 



tions of responsibility and trust. It is ex- 
ceedingly difficult indeed to speak of this 
patron saint of the modern American book 
trade without resorting to superlatives; and 
yet, so far as our profession is concerned. 
Franklin was first in almost everything that 
made it great. 

Franklin was the first to found a news- 
paper, in the modern sense of the word, 
in America — The Pennsylvania Gazette — of 
which he was the first editor as distin- 
guished from the newsgatherer. Up to this 
time the so-called newspapers were made up 
of news contained in private correspondence 
or in foreign newspapers from three to six 
months old, and rarely had an editorial opin- 
ion. Franklin's superior arrangement of his 
paper, his new type, some spirited remarks on 
the controversy then waging between the Mas- 
sachusetts assembly and the provisional gov- 
ernor, Burnet, brought his paper into imme- 
diate notice. The influence which he was 
enabled to exert by his pen through his paper, 
and by his industry and good sense, bore 
abundant fruit during the seventeen years, 
from 1 729-1746, when he stood at the head of 
journalism in America. The Gazette was ed- 
ited in every sense of the word by Franklin 
alone for nearly twenty years, and then, for 
eighteen more, in conjunction with David 
Hall. 

Franklin was the first to illustrate a news- 
paper. This was by a rude cut made to il- 
lustrate the Siege of Louisburg. 

He issued the first of our humorous peri- 
odicals^ — the "Poor Richard's Almanac" — the 
earliest and most popular of comic almanacs. 
It has been printed at least four hundred 
times, in almost every spoken language, and 
is to-day as popular as ever. 

He was the first American writer to gain 
recognition in the world of literature, his au- 
tobiography being still widely read in many- 
languages, and regarded as a classic. 

He was the first to encourage Baskerville, 
and through him correct and well-printed 
texts, and the improvement of the art of 
typography generally, abroad as well as in 
this country. 

He was the first in this country to con- 
sider the possibilities of duplicating type mat- 
ter by stereotyping; forty years later we hear 
of him instructing Firmin Didot, one of the 
grandsons of Francois Didot, the founder of 
the famous French printing house, and giving 
him new notions of this process, which Didot 
put into practical operation, in 1795, when 
printing his edition of Callet's "Tables of 
Logarithms."

Among other things, not to extend the list, 
Franklin encouraged John Walter in his logo- 
graphic printing experiments, and, shortly be- 
fore his death, suggested that Walter establish 
a newspaper to be printed by this new method. 
Walter followed the suggestion and promptly 
started the London Times, "the Thunderer" 
of a later day. 

To Franklin the world of letters is indebted 
for founding the first literary club in Amer- 
ica, the Junto, out of which grew The Gen- 
eral Magazine, the first magazine to be pub- 
lished in this country, and the Philadelphia 
Library^ an institution in existence to this 
day, which was the first lending library, not 
only in America, but in the world. 

Franklin was the first to establish a high 
school, or academy, in Philadelphia, which in 
1779 was called the University of Pennsyl- 
vania, and is now the great institution under 
that title. 

He was the first to found a philosophical 
society in Philadelphia, which still exists as 
the famous American Philosophical Society. 

He was the first Postmaster-General of the 
United Colonies in 1775, and, later, of the 
United States, and sketched the plan upon 
which, practically, the post-office of this coun- 
try has since been conducted. 

He was the first to recognize the possibili- 
ties of printing and bookselling in this coun- 
try, and assisted printers to establish them- 
selves in five different colonies, remaining 
their silent partner until they had fully met 
their obligations. As a printer at the case, 
as a bookseller trundling his printed wares m 
a wheelbarrow to his customers, as a diplomat 
in England and in France, and in the high 
places which he filled with a simple dignity 
in his native country, Franklin was ever 
intent upon furthering and eletvating the 
cause of literature in the new republic. He 
found it abject and servile or impotent; he 
closed his eyes upon it independent and pow- 
erful, with its face turned to ever-increasing 
independence and power. And for his service 
in this direction the book trade and its allies 
owe him an everlasting debt of gratitude. 



HALL CAINE ON THE PROFITS OF 
PLAY-WRITING. 

Discussing the profits of play-writing with 
a representative of the Evening News, Hall 
Caine is reported to have said: "I am nearly 
£1000 out of pocket over the dramatization 
of The Prodigal Son,' and my latest experi- 
ence is that a successful play does not bring 
me nearly as much money as a successful 
book. I have found that the writing of a 
book pays far better than a play, and does not 
involve me in a tenth part of the worry." 



MASTER PRINTERS CELEBRATE 
FRANKLIN'S BIRTHDAY. 

The Master Printers' Association made its 
fifth annual dinner at the N«w Grand Hotel, 
in New York City, on the evening of January 
16, a celebration of the 200th anniversary of 
the birth of Benjamin Franklin, and extolled 
him not only as one of the great Americans, 
but as an American pioneer in printing. 
Among the speakers were the Rev. Dr. S. 
Parkes Codman, of Brooklyn, who spoke on 
"Our Debt to Franklin;" John R. Dunlop, 
who talked of Franklin as a politician; D. J. 
Crary and George H. Ellis. Mr. Ellis, who 
came to the dinner late, said he was just off 
the firing line in the printers' strike. He 
spoke of a telegram which had been sent to 
Washington recently which read: "Typothetae 
broken to pieces. Will give details when 
smoke clears from firing line." "We are on 
the firing line yet," he added, "and the Ty- 
pothetae have not gone to pieces yet. We be- 
lieve in Franklin's motto, 'Equal rights for all 
and special privileges to none/ I for one 
have no use for the open shop as pictured by 
labor unionists, as a place opposed to a union 
shop. Our idea is for a true open shop, open 
to unionist and non-unionist alike. When 
the trades unionist says that the open shop is 
one closed to union labor it is only because he 
makes it so by refusing to enter it and work 
with men who desire to be free." 



AMERICAN BOOK AUCTION SALES 
IN 1905. 

With the eleventh volume "American 
Book- Prices Current" * virtually begins a 
new series, most of the more important rec- 
ords of the preceding volumes having been 
incorporated in a single alphabet in the larger 
compilation, "Auction Prices of Books." It 
is true that, as the "Auction Prices of Books" 
is limited in its scope by the fixing of a min- 
imum price of $5 for the lot, and as, for va- 
rious reasons, other lots were discarded in 
making up the larger work, and as auto- 
graphs and manuscripts are entirely beyond 
its scope, the annual series is not by any 
means rendered useless for the period cov- 
ered by the greater work. Least of all is this 
the case with the volumes for 1903 and 1904, 
both of which were issued after "Auction 
Prices of Books" was well under way, and, in 
the case of the volume for 1904, in large part 
in type. The selection from these years is less 
extensive, though a place was found for most 
of the important items. 

The steady increase of the material — the 
present volume contains more than 75 per 
cent, more than the first volume, published in 
T 895 — has obliged the editor to resort to 
some form of condensation, and he has there- 
fore decided to adopt for this and future vol- 

* American Book Prices Current: a record of 
books, manuscripts and autographs sold at auc- 
tion in New York, Boston and Philadelphia, 
from September i, 1904, to September 1, 1905,

auctioneers' catalogues by Luther S. Livingston,

times the arrangement followed in "Auction 
Prices of Books." The name of the author, 
or, in the case of anonymous books, the first 
words of the title are set in black-faced type. 
The author's name is followed (in the case of 
the first record under an author) by the title 
of the book. Other titles by the same author 
arc preceded by a dash. These titles are ar- 
ranged in alphabetical order. This first por- 
tion of the description is general and applies, 
as in "Auction Prices of Books," to all copies 
of the same book. Following this general 
description is the specific description of the 
copies of the book as sold, each lot begin- 
ning a new line. This specific description is 
made up of (1) a description of the binding; 
(2) some notes as to condition, extra plates 
or autographs inserted, large paper or other 
special editions, former ownership, etc.; (3) 
the name of the sale, when a name was given 
on the catalogue; (4) the initial of the name 
of the auctioneer under whose management 
the sale took place ; (5) the date of the sale ; 
(6) the lot number in the original sale cata- 
logue; and (7) the price realized. The usual 
subject index has been dropped altogether; 
yet as the general arrangement is almost en- 
tirely plainly alphabetical, and as the work is 
chiefly consulted for the purpose of learning 
the prices brought at auction by particular 
books, this index has been of little practical 
use, and so its omission to gain space for the 
more important material seems to be justified. 

The editor notes the addition to the small 
number of auction houses in this country of 
the Merwin-Clayton Sales Company, an or- 
ganization made up principally of the former 
employees of the old house of Bangs & Com- 
pany and their predecessors, which began 
business at the end of 1904. He is also obliged 
to mention the loss which the trade has suffered 
in the death, on November 9, 1904, of Mr. 
Charles F. Libbie, for nearly thirty years the 
head of the well-known Boston house. Pre- 
vious to starting in business for himself Mr. 
Libbie had been connected with the older 
houses of Leonard & Co. and George A. 
Leavitt & Co. 

A review of the sales of the season shows 
a dearth of great libraries. Parts n., in. and 
iv. of the Hurst collection, sold by the An- 
derson Auction Company in November and 
December, 1904, and March, 1905, was, per- 
haps, the most important single library of- 
fered for sale at auction during the season. 
Aside from the Hurst library there were few 
collections offered which will go down in 
history as important sales of collectors' books. 

The library of John Kendrick Bangs, sold 
by the Merwin-Clayton Co., in February, 
1905, included some interesting collectors' 
books, as did the collection described as the 
library of the late Arthur Mason Knapp, of 
Boston, with additions, sold by Libbie & Co., 
also in February. Equally good or better items 
were included in sales made up of lots con- 
signed by various owners. These miscella- 
neous sales made up the greater part of the 
season's business. 

Autographs and manuscripts make up a 
larger part of the 1905 volume of "American 
Book Prices Current" than ever before. 



Some of the best manuscripts have been in- 
cluded in book sales, notably a number of 
fine items in the Hurst collection. There 
were, however, several important autograph 
sales, such as the Carson collection, sold by 
Mr. Henkels in October, 1904; the Botta 
collection, sold by Libbie & Co., in Novem- 
ber, 1904; the Barton, Mercer and Milligan 
papers, sold by Mr. Henkels in January, 
1905; two portions of the J. H. V. Arnold 
collection, sold by the Anderson Auction Co., 
in February and March, and two portions of 
the collection of James Grant Wilson, sold 
by the Merwin-Clayton Sales Co. in April 
and May. 

Mr. Livingston's record this season has been 
compiled from 152 catalogues, comprising 
a total of about 116,000 lots, of which 10,793 
lots were books. This is a considerable in- 
crease in number of lots and number of cat- 
alogues over last season, though it does not 
quite equal the corresponding totals for 1003. 

This annual work as a supplement to the 
"Auction Prices of Books" assumes a new 
importance, and is bound to become of in- 
creasing value to all who buy and sell books. 



A SCHOOL FOR JOURNALISM, J 
The University of Missouri has made 
what may be considered the first practical at- 
tempt of an American college to teach jour- 
nalism as law, medicine and other profes- 
sions are taught. The principal features of 
the instruction are a series of lectures by 
newspaper men from the leading journals of 
the country and actual newspaper writing un- 
der the direction of one of the teachers of 
English who has worked as a reporter on a 
large city daily. Three lectures have already 
been delivered, by Captain Henry King, of 
the Globe-Democrat; Shailer Mathews, of 
The Word To-Day; and William E. Curtis, 
of the Chicago Record-Herald. The lectures 
will be continued throughout the year. 
Among those yet to speak are: Melville E. 
Stone, general manager of the Associated 
Press; J. A. Graham, St. Louis (Mo.) Re- 
public; George S. Johns, St. Louis (Mo.) 
Post-Dispatch; Samuel Bowles, Springfield 
(Mass.) Republican; B. B. Herbert, National 
Printer Journalist, Chicago ; Thomas F. Mil- 
lard, war correspondent; Dante Barton, Kan- 
sas City (Mo.) Star; M. E. Moore, Chicago 
Inter-Ocean; W. B. Taylor, Kansas City 
(Mo.) Star; Walter B. Stevens, special cor- 
respondent; George B. Longan, Kansas City 
(Mo.) Star; Homer Bassford, St. Louis 
(Mo.) Republic, and B. E. Bradley, Chicago 
Inter-Ocean. 



THE LONDON TIMES GIVES NOTH- 
ING FOR NOTHING. 

Apropos of the London Times book club 
scheme the Academy says: "But for what 
has happened in the past we should have been 
surprised to see the Times giving its counte- 
nance to a clap-trap heading such as this: 
'How to read the newest books without buy- 
ing them or paying for the use of them.' It 
appears as the title of a booklet that is being 



The Publisher/ Weekly. 



[No. 1773] Jan. 20, 1906 



circulated widely and it is surely belied bv 
the opening sentence, which begins as fol- 
lows: 'Our offer to give without charge, to 
any one who subscribes to "The Times" for 
a year! etc. It must be obvious to the mean- 
est intelligence that any one accepting the 
offer does 'pay for the use' of the books sup- 
plied by the book club, although like some 
commissions and discounts in business the 
payment is included in the payment for some- 
thing else. The Times may be right in de- 
claring that the public gets a present advan- 
tage in excess of what it formerly got for its 
threepence a day, and it might be argued that 
the same result is arrived at as if the price of 
the paper had been lowered— a hateful alter- 
native that must be avoided by all means." 



BEST-SELLING BOOKS IN ENGLAND

OBITUARY NOTES. 

Joseph T. Hall, a retired book dealer, died 
January 4, at the home of his daughter, Fran- 
ces E. Hall, 565 Chauncey Street, Brooklyn, 
N. Y. Mr. Hall was born in Ireland on Au- 
gust 3, 1818. For many years he was in the 
employ of Harper & Brothers, and later with 
D. Appleton & Co., and the Methodist Book 
Concern. 

Sir Mountstuart Elphinstone Grant 
Duff, author of "Notes from a Diary," etc., 
died January 12, in London. Sir Mountstuart 
was born in Eden, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, 
February 29, 1829, and after graduating from 
Balliol College was called to the bar. He en- 
tered Parliament in 1857, and from 1868 to 
1874 was Under-Secretary of State for India. 
Later he became Secretary of the Colonies 
and Governor of Madras. It is as the author 
of "Notes from a Diary" that Sir Mount- 
stuart is most widely known. The first vol- 
ume appeared in 1897, and the sixth in 1904, 
the intermediate ones in 1898, 1899, 1900 and 
in 1901. He had adopted the custom of keep- 
ing a diary when eighteen years old, and al- 
lowed no day to pass without some entry. A 
quarter of a century after he began to keep it 
he read over what he had written and decided 
to extract what would be of interest to other 
persons than himself, the result being a 
famous work. He was also the author of 
"Studies in European Politics," "A Political 
Survey," "Elgin Speeches," "Notes of an 
Indian Journey," "Ernest Renan," "Miscel- 
lanies, Political and Literary," and "Out of 
the Past." He also edited a "Victorian An- 
thology." 



BOOKTRADE ASSOCIATIONS. 
THE AMERICAN PUBLISHERS' ASSOCIATION. 

The American Publishers' Association 
held its annual meeting on the afternoon of 
the 10th inst Owing to a misunderstanding 
as to the date of the meeting but a few mem- 
bers above a quorum were present. No busi- 
ness of importance was presented. The reso- 
lutions of the American Booksellers' Asso- 
ciation regarding the placing of fiction on the 
net basis, and the extension of the period of 
protection from one to two years were in- 
troduced, but were referred back, without 
discussion, to the Board of Directors, with 
instructions to report later. 

It was voted to increase the membership 
of the Board of Directors from nine to twelve, 
the three new directors to be elected at a 
special meeting of the Association to be 
called some time next month. The officers 
of the Association will be elected by the 
Board of Directors, also in February. Messrs. 
Daniel Appleton, Frederiok A. Stokes and 
George P. Brett, whose three-year term as 
members of the Board of Directors had ex- 
pired, were re-elected. 

The Association was reported to be in good 
condition financially and intact as to mem- 
bership, with the exception of the firm of L. C. 
Page & Co., whose withdrawal took place 
January 1. 

It was reported that the time for appeal 
from Judge Parker's decision by the Macy's 
had elapsed, and that it now looks as though 
the suit had been dropped. 

LADIES' NIGHT AT THE BOOKSELLERS' 
LEAGUE. 

The Ladies* Night given by the Booksell- 
ers' League on the evening of January 17, at 
the rooms of the Aldine Association, was at- 
tended by upwards of 150 members and their 
guests, and, altogether, was one of the most 
successful entertainments given by the 
League. 

The speaking was introduced by the presi- 
dent, Frederick D. Lacy, who welcomed the 
guests in a happy speech. Reminding them 
that the day also marked the two-hundredth 
anniversary of Benjamin Franklin's birthday, 
he called upon A. Growoll for remarks on 
the subject. Mr. Growoll briefly outlined the 
many services rendered by Franklin to the 
cause of letters in general and to the book- 
trade in particular. The Rev. Robert E. 
Knowles, author of "St. Cuthbert's," next 
held the audience spellbound by an oratorical 
flourish that swept the gamut of human emo- 
tions from the gay to the grave, which was 
followed by hearty applause. Mr. and Mrs. 
Barclay Dunham's sing-a-log was also much 
enjoyed. Mr. Dunham illustrated the work 
of three American composers and song 
writers — Foote, Macdowell and Nevin — giv- 
ing a brief biographical sketch of each com- 
poser, describing his work and by rendering 
some of their songs, Mrs. Dunham taking 
upon herself the larger share of the singing. 
Edmund Vance Cooke, a copy of whose 
charming "Chronicles of the Little Tot," 
with the author's autograph, was presented 
to each lady present, with the compliments

of ks publishers— the Dodge Publishing Com- 
pany — fairly brought the house down with 
his inimitable rendering of his own verses 
about children and some stories in imitation 
of French and German visitors to American 
sights. Eugene P. Lyle, Jr., author of "The 
Missourian," with an account of a "Journal- 
ist Astray," that is, utilizing his blue pen- 
cilled stories as book material, brought a 
most enjoyable evening to a close at about 
lialf-past eleven. The arrangements for the 
dinner, the attentions paid to the guests, etc., 
left nothing to be desired and reflect much 
credit upon the entertainment committee. 

STATIONERS' BOARD OF TRADE.

tioners' Board of Trade, held on the after- 
noon of the 9th inst., the following officers

NOTES ON AUTHORS. 

Brand Whitlock, who succeeded "Golden 
Rule" Jones as Mayor of Toledo, Ohio, and 
as leader of the "Golden Rule" party, is the 
author of a number of novels, including "The 
13th District," "Her Infinite Variety" and 
"The Happy Average," all of them realistic 
studies of life in the Middle West. He is 
now reported to be writing another story 
dealing with the under world of thieves and 
■"crooks." 

Frederic Harrison, who has been engaged 
for some time on a dramatic version of his 
novel "Theophano," now announces that his 
labor is complete. There is an excellent pros- 
pect that the play will soon be staged in Lon- 
don. "Theophano" is a story of the crusade 
•of the tenth century. It was published by the 
Harpers somewhat over a year ago, and re- 
ceived the unusual distinction of being en- 
thusiastically reviewed in The Nineteenth 
•Century by no less an authority than John 
Morley. 

H. W. Boynton, author of "Bret Harte," 
in the McCIure-Phillips Contemporary Men 
■of Letters Series, declares that the most mi- 
nute search of all documents and inquiries 
•among persons who knew Bret Harte have 
•enabled him to fix definitely the rumors of 
Harte's Jewish ancestry. Clement Shorter, 



editor of The Sphere, takes issue with Mr. 
Boynton, and declares there is no doubt about 
the matter. He writes to an inquirer: "I 
may state that my final authority for Mr. 
Bret Harte's Jewish origin is his daughter, 
Miss Ethel Bret Harte, for whom a fund was 
recently raised in London, Mr. Bret Harte 
in his family circle recalled as a small boy 
being taken to see the old grandfather, who 
was a very strict Jew, and never entirely for- 
gave his son for marrying a Christian." 

Those who are writing biographies of the 
late Henry Harland will probably fall into the 
common error and state that his birthplace 
was St. Petersburg. Such is the information 
given in "Who's Who," but Mr. Harland him- 
self is the authority for the statement that it 
is inaccurate. Mr. Harland was born, as 
"Who's Who" states, in 1861, but the ques- 
tion of the place is complicated by the fact 
that Mr. Harland himself disagrees with the 
records. Before a court of law Mr. Harland 
would have had to confess that he was born 
in prosaic Brooklyn, which except under oath 
he was never willing to admit. He always 
claimed Norwich, which he called "the rose 
of Connecticut," as the place of his nativity. 
He explained this disagreement with the rec- 
ords by saying that he preferred to have been 
born in Norwich because he liked the place, 
and had not been consulted about being born 
in Brooklyn anyhow. 

The Jewish World, of London, states that 
the various rumors about the Jewish origin 
of the late Jules Verne, the famous French 
author, which were recently denied by his son 
in Le Figaro, of Paris, have been confirmed. 
In the Gazeta Navodowa, of Warsaw, a cor- 
respondence has taken place which shows 
that Jules Verne was originally called Olsze- 
wicz, and was born of Jewish parents in 
Plock, Russian Poland. His father, accord- 
ing to M. Sokolow, editor of the Hebrew 
daily Hazephira, of Warsaw, was known as 
"the pious German," on account of his fash- 
ionable attire. The son, however, left the 
country, turned Christian, adopted the name 
of Verne, and, although he seems to have 
been a Pole by nationality and by preference, 
he subsequently became a thorough French- 



JOURNALISTIC NOTES. 

The Printing Art for January contains an 
article on "The New Humanistic Type," by 
Charles Eliot Norton, with examples of type 
with which the University Press, of Cam- 
bridge, is now experimenting, contrasted with 
facsimiles of several manuscript pages pro- 
duced by the Humanistic Scribes in their 
best work; "Library Printing," by John Cot- 
ton Dana, with a number of illustrations; 
also an editorial note on the "Responsibilities 
That Attach to Printing." The object lessons 
in typography are unusually full, including 
reproductions of the prize designs of the 
Printing Arfs catalogue title-page competi- 
tion, typographic exhibits composed at sev- 
eral printing offices, color plates, etc.

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTES. 

Oscar Wegelin, 29 West Forty-second 
Street, New York City, has in press "A Bib- 
liography of the Separate Writings of Will- 
iam Gilmore Simms, of South Carolina, 1806- 
1870." The work, compiled by Mr. Wegelin, 
will contain complete, line-for-line, titles and 
paginations of all the known works of Simms. 
The edition will be limited to 125 copies. 

The Office of The Publishers' Weekly 
has just brought out the third part of "State 
Publications," compiled under the editorial 
direction of R. R. Bowker. This section of 
the work covers the publication of the States 
stretching from the west bank of the Missis- 
sippi to the Pacific coast, with the exception 
of Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas, (which 
belong naturally to the group of Southern 
States to be covered in Part rv.,) as well as 
the present organized Territories of Arizona, 
New Mexico, Oklahoma and Hawaii, the un- 
organized Indian Territory and the District 
of Alaska. The fourth and concluding part 
will contain the record of the fifteen States 
not yet covered in the three parts thus far 
published. 

The Society of Printers, which is giving 
an exhibition in honor of the bi-centenary of 
Franklin's birth at the Boston Public Library, 
has published in connection with this exhibit 
a handbook entitled "The Development of 
Printing as an Art." The handbook is a run- 
ning comment on the exhibit, which is planned 
to illustrate the art of making books pro- 
gressively from the work of the manuscript 
writers and illuminators to the products of 
the modern printing press, including the proc- 
esses by which illustrations and paper are 
made. Each section and period has an intro- 
duction and the more important exhibits are 
more or less fully described. The handbook 
is artistically printed and has a permanent in- 
terest apart from its use in studying the ex- 
hibit. (4+94 P. 8°, pap.) 

The International Institute of Social 
Bibliography, under the business manage- 
ment of Dr. Hermann Beck and Hermann 
Hasse, of Berlin, and Dr. J. Hanauer, of 
Frankfurt-on-the-Main, has recently estab- 
lished itself at 17 Spichernstr., Berlin. The 
object of the institute is to cultivate biblio- 
graphical as well as historical and critical 
studies in the department of social science, to 
note all new publications in this department, 
and to publish all such studies and notes in a 
periodical organ of the institute, as well as 
to issue at irregular periods monographs and 
collected works dealing with social science. 
Among the works which the institute pro- 
poses to publish are a bibliography of the 
bibliographies of social science of all coun- 
tries ; a bibliography of trusts ; a bibliography 
of the woman question; a bibliography of 
labor organizations and a bibliography gi the 
administrations of cities. 

William Abbatt, 281 Fourth Avenue, New 
York, proposes to issue a complete index to 
The Magazine of American History, from 
1877 to 1893. Every student who has had oc- 
casion to consult the bound volumes of Mrs. 



Lamb's famous magazine has felt the need of 
a separate index covering the whole work, 
from January, 1877, to its end in September, 
1893. Every librarian, also, will appreciate 
this handy form. It will be printed in type 
two sizes larger than the old index found in 
each volume, and will be exactly the same 
size in itself, so as to agree perfectly with the 
bound volumes in appearance. As soon as a 
reasonable number of subscriptions have been 
received the printing will be begun and the 
copies delivered as soon as possible there- 
after. The volume will contain between 325 
and 350 pages, and will be printed from type 
which will be distributed after printing. The 
price has been fixed at $7.50 net.

The new building, which will be six stories, 
will occupy the northwest corner of Seven- 
teenth and Chestnut Streets, with a frontage 
of 45 feet on Chestnut Street and 170 feet on 
Seventeenth Street. The building will be be- 
gun early in the spring, and when completed 
will be occupied entirely by the Society. 

Philadelphia, Pa.— John Joseph McVey, 
for fifteen years at 39 N. Thirteenth Street, 
will remove on March 15 to 1229 Arch Street, 
five doors east of Thirteenth Street, N. Mr. 
McVey for some time has needed more room 
for the proper housing and display of his 
large stock of rare books. His new quarters 
offer ample room for both these requirements. 

Sharon, Pa. — An explosion occurred in 
Denko*s bookstore on January 2. When Mr. 
Denko entered the store he detected the odor 
of gas. He struck a match near a gas burner 
and a terrific explosion followed. The in- 
terior of the store was wrecked and every 
window in the building shattered. Mr. Denko 
is in a serious condition, and is now in a 
hospital. 

Temple, Tex.— J. E. Harvey has sold his 
bookstore here to R. S. Maldrop, of Rockwall, 
and has gone to Dallas to take charge of a 
bookstore recently purchased by him in that 
city. 

Troy, N. Y.— Arthur M. Allen, bookseller, 
has removed to larger quarters, at 452 Fulton 
Street, six doors west of his present location. 
The new store will be known as "Allen's 
Bookstore." 



LITERARY AND TRADE NOTES. 

John H. Black, representing the firm of 
McLoughlin Brothers, has started on his trip 
for the Pacific coast. Charles Miller, repre- 
senting the same firm, is on his way West to 
visit the jobbing trade. 

D. C. Heath & Co. will publish shortly a 
collection of German student songs, entitled 
"Deutsches Liederbuch fur Amerikanische 
Studenten," edited by Professor A. R. Hohl- 
feld, of the University of Wisconsin. 

John A. Bacon, for the past nine years con- 
nected with McLoughlin Brothers, has joined 
the selling organization of Andrew Dough- 
erty, playing card manufacturer, New York, 
and will represent that house in the Far 
West. 

The Burrows Brothers Company last 
week entertained their staff at the Colonial 
Hotel in Cleveland. About 120 were present 
and were entertained by Edmund Vance 
Cooke, Clarence T. Odell, George Olney and 
others. 

John Murray, London, announces a new 
volume of biographical sketches by Sir Theo- 
dore Martin, which will contain chapters on 
David Garrick, William Charles Macready. 
Rachel Felix, the great French actress, and 
Baron Stockmar; also "The Jottings of an 
Old Solicitor," by Sir John Hollams, whose 
reminiscences touch many celebrated cases 
in the English courts. 

The Scudder Brothers Company, Cincin- 



nati, O., will issue early in February a new 
"Eclectic Practice of Medicine," by Rolla L. 
Thomas, M.D., Professor of Practice of Med- 
icine in the Eclectic Medical Institute, Cin- 
cinnati. This work will embrace over 1000 
octavo pages, and will contain two full-page 
lithographs, five full-page color prints and 
fifty illustrations in black. 

The Century Company will publish next 
month a new novel by Miss Bertha Runkle, 
author of "The Helmet of Navarre," to be 
entitled "Tolna," the heroine of which is a 
successful singer at the Metropolitan Opera 
House, and the scenes and characters of 
which are all of New York City. They have 
in preparation a character study, set on an 
island off the Nova Scotia coast, entitled 
"Uncle William." 

Harper & Brothers will bring out next 
month the initial volume of a series of hu- 
morous works to be entitled the Mark Twain 
Library of Humor. The series is to be edited 
by Mark Twain, whose aim it will be to in- 
clude not only representative selections from 
the works of those whom the world has long 
recognized as fun-makers, but to give full 
and rightful place to all writers who, while 
working in a wider field, have yet given ex- 
pression to the purest humor. The first vol- 
ume will be called "Men and Things." 

Ginn & Co. have just published a "Home 
Geography of New York City," by Gustav 
Straubenmuller, District Superintendent of 
Schools in New York City. This work is a 
particularly effective application of the prin- 
ciple of beginning with the child's immediate 
environment and with this as a foundation 
lead him on to a wider knowledge. The 
book begins with the pupil's immediate sur- 
roundings and proceeds to describe in detail 
the topography of each borough. The his- 
tory of the city is also discussed, and the 
narrative is made more real by numerous il- 
lustrations and bird's-eye views. 

Reilly & Britton, Chicago, announce that 
Mr. Baum's new book for young people, to 
be published by them later in the year, will 
be entitled "John Dough and the Cherubs," 
and will be similar in general characteristics 
to the author's famous "Wizard of Oz," 
though radically different as to characters and 
plot. John R. Neill, of Philadelphia, whose 
illustrations for "The Land of Oz" received 
so much praise, is at work on the illustrations 
for the new publication, which will be very 
elaborately printed throughout in three colors. 
Mr. Baum, by the way, will not start on his 
Mediterranean trip until the 27th inst. 

Owing to the necessity for most careful 
comparison and collation of the new transla- 
tion of "Champlain's Voyages," which Pro- 
fessor and Mrs. E. G. Bourne are preparing 
for The Trailmakers series, the standard li- 
brary of history and exploration, of which 
Professor J. B. McMaster is consulting edi- 
tor, the publishers, A. S. Barnes & Co., will 
delay publication of this important work for a 
few weeks. While Champlain's first volumes 
have been translated in limited editions, pri-

vately issued, his last and largest volume, 
which contains practically a summary of his 
discoveries in the New World, has not been 
translated- before. 

Thomas Whittaker has just published a 
brief exposition of the Ten Commandments, 
adapted to present-day conditions, entitled 
"The X Commandments in the XXth Cen- 
tury," by the Rev. Dr. H. Martyn Hart; 
a popular rksumk of Christian teaching, en- 
titled "Rightly Instructed in God's Holy 
Word/' by the Rt. Rev. Dr. Beckwith, Bishop 
of the Episcopal Church of Alabama, with

Bosc, Dean of Sewanee Theological Sem- 
inary; also, "A Church Calendar," for 1906, 
which is a weekly calendar "according to the 
usages of the Protestant Episcopal Church in 
the United States of America," giving the or- 
der of service for every day, and "quotations 
upon the Christian life and the church's way." 

Doubleday, Page & Co. will publish early 
next month "The Lady and the Ladder," by 
Harrison Garfield Rhodes. The ladder up 
which this delightful American widow clam- 
bers is, of course, the social one, and her ex- 
periences in trying to climb it make enter- 
taining reading. They will publish in March 
under the title of "Letters and Recollections 
of Washington" Washington's correspondence 
with Tobias Lear, his confidential secretary, 
and the latter's diary of the last days of the 
first President of the United States, much of 
which will now for the first time be pub- 
lished; also, "The International Cook Book," 
by Alexander Filippini, for many years the 
chef at Delmonico's, containing nearly 3500 
recipes arranged in diary form, with a menu 
for each meal of every day in the year. In 
April they will publish in their Nature Li- 
brary "The Frog Book," by Mary C. Dicker- 
son. 

Longmans, Green & Co. have in prepara- 
tion the first volume of "A History of the 
Society of Jesus in North America, Colonial 
and Federal," by Father Thomas Hughes, 
S.J., covering the period from the first col- 
onization to 1645 ; a work in two volumes, by 
Dr. Shad well, on "Industrial Efficiency," a 
comparative study of industrial life in Eng- 
land, Germany and America; "The Tradition 
of Scripture," by Dr. William Barry, the in- 
itial volume of The Westminster Library, a 
series of manuals for Catholic priests and 
students, edited by Mgr. Ward, president of 
St. Edmund's College, and Father Thurston, 
S.J. ; "Aspects of Anglicism, or, a Comment 
on Certain Incidents in the Nineties," by the 
Rt. Rev. Dr. Moyes; "Plant Responses," by 
Jagadis Chunder Bose, Professor in Presi- 
dency College, Calcutta, India; also "Plants 
and Their Ways in South Africa," by Bertha 
Stoneman, of Huguenot College, Wellington, 
South Africa. 

Fleming H. Retell Company have just 
ready 'The Secret of Heroism," by W. L. 
Mackenzie King, Deputy Minister of Labor 
of the Dominion of Canada, a book written as 
a memorial to his assistant, Henry Albert 



Harper, who lost his life in rescuing a young 
woman who had fallen through the ice; "As 
Jesus Passed By," by Gipsy Smith, the Eng- 
lish evangelist, who is really a gypsy and is 
shortly coming to this country to conduct 
meetings for the Congregational churches; 
"The Vision of the Savoy," by Winifred 
Graham, containing in the form of a semi- 
religious story some of the newest experi- 
ences of telepathy; "The Collected Poems of 
Wilfred Campbell," which have appealed so 
much to Andrew Carnegie that he has pur- 
chased a sufficient number of copies to be dis- 
tributed to the hundreds of libraries he has 
established; and a new edition of R. A. Tor- 
rey's "How to Promote and Conduct a Suc- 
cessful Revival." 

B. W. Huebsch, New York, has brought 
out a volume of essays by C. F. G. Master- 
man, literary editor of the London Daily 
Neivs, entitled "In Peril of Change," which 
is full of suggestive thoughts on the tendencies 
of English civilization and its dominant ideals, 
and points out recent changes which have 
occurred in these and the people who have 
had most influence in the changes. Among 
the things in England most in peril of change 
are mentioned the landed system, the estab- 
lished church and the popular religion. Es- 
timates are given of the influence of W. E. 
Henley, J. Henry Shorthouse, Henry Sidg- 
wick, Frederic Myers, George Gissing, Spen- 
cer and Carl vie, Disraeli and Gladstone. The 
writer has filled public offices involving large 
opportunities for the study of social and 
economic conditions, and has contributed ex- 
tensively to the leading English reviews. His 
book is a fine sociological study of modern 
life that must make his readers think. 

F. E. Hafely, formerly of the firm of E. & 
J. B. Young & Co., has opened an office at 27 
East Twenty-second Street, (Room 21,) New 
York, for the sale of a series of secular or 
non-sectarian Wall Texts, suitable for home, 
school, public hall or office use. The texts 
are handsomely printed in black and red or 
illuminated, on a heavy white board mat, 
plate marked, with either a cord or ribbon 
hanger. There are now ready eight numbers, 
7 J AxisM inches in size, entitled "House 
Blessings," "The Whole Duty of Man/' 
"Work is Honorable," "Love Labor," "The 
House Beautiful," "Christ, the Head of the 
House," "Holiness" and "Present Duties." 
There are also six larger cards, I2# x I9# 
inches in size, entitled "It's Worth Trying," 
"Ten Things for Which no one has Ever yet 
Been Sorry," "Energy the Motive Power,* 
"With Good-will Doing Service," and "Work 
While it is Day." The larger size retails for 
fifty cents and the smaller for twenty-five 
cents. Further numbers will be added in 
time. The cards are good stock and have 
been well received wherever introduced. 

The Literary Collector Press, Greenwich, 
Conn., is getting out some very neat reprints 
of books and essays which have made them- 
selves a name in literature. Among those that 
have already reached us are Robert Louis 
Stevenson's "Books Which Have Influenced

The Publisher/ Weekly.

Me," first printed in The British Weekly, 
May 13, 1887; Montaigne's essay entitled "Of 
Books;" "Mr. William Prynn: His Defence 
of Stage Plays/' first printed in 1649 as a re- 
traction of a former book, "Histrio-Mastix,* 
which was against public acting; and three 
books by Oscar Wilde: "The Soul of Man 
Under Socialism," "Poems in Prose," six 
short stories; and "The Portrait of W. H.," 
an essay claiming to identify the "W. H." to 
whom so many of Shakespeare's most pas- 
sionate sonnets are addressed as the young 
actor Will Hews, who first created the parts 
of Juliet, Rosalind, Beatrice and Desdemona 
on the English stage. Another book devoted 
to Oscar Wilde is made up of three essays 
by Ernest La Jeunesse, Andre Gide and Franz 
Blei, all separately entitled "In Memoriam: 
O. W.," and prefaced with an introduction by 
Percival Pollard. This is a new copyright 
book, as is also "Bookbinding for Biblio- 
philes," by Fletcher Battershall. All these 
publications are very neatly printed and 
bound in grey boards with white labels. 

The Baker & Taylor Company have just 
ready "The Bible and Spiritual Criticism," 
Dr. Arthur T. Pierson's Exeter Hall (Lon- 
don) lectures for 1904, which is a companion 
volume to the author's "God's Living Ora- 
cles ;" also, a new book by Leander T. Cham- 
berlain, president of the Evangelical Alliance 
of the United States, entitled "The True Doc- 
trine of Prayer," with a foreword by Dr. 
Huntington, of Grace Church, New York. 
They will bring out in March a new book by 
Mabel Barnes-Grundy, entitled "Hazel of 
Heatherland," a picture of English rural 
charm which under the title of "The Vacilla- 
tions of Hazel" was received with a good deal 
of enthusiasm by the English critics; also, 
"Social Progress," edited by Dr. Josiah 
Strong, which has been thoroughly revised 
and augmented with many new statistics. 
They have in preparation an attractive book 
on "Landscape Painting and Modern Dutch 
Artists," by E. B. Greenshields, of Montreal, 
an enthusiastic student and collector of land- 
scape paintings, particularly those by the mod- 
ern Dutch school of art; also, "The Country 
Town — a study of rural evolution," an im- 
portant sociological work, by Wilbur L. An- 
derson, of Exeter, N. H., with an introduction 
by Dr. Josiah Strong, in which the author 
traces the deterioration of the country town 
and suggests remedies for its salvation. 

A. C. McClurg & Co. are planning for 
1906 an interesting list of books covering a 
very diversified field. The list will include 
several striking volumes of fiction, an ad- 
mirable list of works for libraries, some 
beautiful gift books, and a select few of en- 
tertaining juveniles of an original sort. Al- 
though the details of their list are not as yet 
perfected, their plans for their spring fiction 
include a historical romance entitled "Nic- 
anor: Teller of Tales," which will be brought 
out as a companion volume to their success- 
ful novel, "For the White Christ," with pic- 
tures in full color and decorations by the 
Kinneys; "For the Soul of Rafael," a pic- 



turesque and dramatic story of an old Span- 
ish mission town in Southern California, by 
Marah Ellis Ryan, which will have some al- 
together unusual and unique photographic il- 
lustrations of a kind seldom hitherto used for 
book illustration; also, a new novel of Irish 
life by Katharine Tynan, author of "The 
Dear Irish Girl," "Julia," etc., who can al- 
ways be counted on for a delightful story, 
with four graceful illustrations by George 
Alfred Williams. Among the more serious 
books will be a new and very timely work on 
Panama and South America by a competent 
observer, who has written an authoritative 
word on the subject; an interesting volume 
entitled "Hawaiian Yesterdays;" a notably 
important book on "The Future Life," and 
a collection of Shakespearean essays by the 
distinguished scholar, Dr. Maurice F. Egan. 
The work on Remenyi, the violinist, an- 
nounced for publication last fall and post- 
poned, has been carried over to the spring. 
There are, we understand, a number of other 
titles of value and distinction. For the fall 
it may now only be stated that Randall Par- 
rish's remarkably popular series of romances 
will be augmented by a new story, in which 
the Custer massacre will provide the dra- 
matic climax; a sombre and powerful tale of 
mediaeval Italy, entitled "Ridolfo: the Com- 
ing of the Dawn," by Egerton Williams, au- 
thor of "Hill Towns of Italy;" also, a brilliant 
character novel of English social life by 
Netta Syrett called "The Day's Journey," 
with four illustrations by Jay Hambidge. 
Arrangements are being made with two of 
America's foremost illustrators for pictures 
of Mr. Parrish's new story and for "Ri- 
dolfo." They also announce that they have 
another ms. from Mrs. Dye, author of that 
remarkable chronicle of Lewis and Clark,

A Book of Mysteries 

A story of how a young Londoner, just back from the war in 
South Africa, opposes himself successfully to the Scotland Yard 
men in a murder case. 

A story of one of the deepest mysteries that ever baffled the 
detective force of London, with a love story of vital interest 
interwoven. 

A story that will hold the oldest novel readers to the very end, 
because they cannot foresee the outcome. 

A story full of dash and "go."

The most noteworthy work on the United States since Bryce's 
"American Commonwealth." 

The United States in 
the Twentieth Century 

By PIERRE LEROY-BEAULIEU 

Trantlated.by H. ADDINGTON BRUCE 

The author shows a remarkable understanding of the social, economic, and po- 
litical resources of the country and a close sympathy with American conditions. 

"An amazingly instructive volume. The book is a mine of information, thoroughly 
assimilated and co-ordinated for the use of Americans, even more it would seem than 
for the French for whom it was originally written. There is nothing else in existence 
that approaches it in thoroughness." — The Evening Mail, New York.

A Thrilling Detective Story 

TheCastlecouri 
Diamond Case 

By CERALDINE BONNER 

Author of "The Pioneer," "Hard Pan," 
"To-morrow's Tangle," etc. 

"A detective story at all times possesses 
certain inexplicable and alluring charms. 
The name of Miss Geraldine Bonner 
(who has already established a creditable 
reputation by some of her previous sto- 
ries) as the author of 'The Castlecourt 
Diamond Case/ should be guarantee 
enough that it will not be lacking in en- 
tangling plot or exciting interest. As the 
purpose of a detective story — which is to 
hold the reader in suspense — would be 
destroyed if even the slightest inkling of 
the plot were divulged, it would be un- 
fair to thus handicap this story at the 
very outset. Therefore our lips are tight- 
ly sealed as to what it is all about." — New 
York Times Saturday Review. 

l2mo, Cloth, $1.00 



By the Author of "The Boy Problem" etc. 
WILLIAM BYRON FORBU8H 

The Boy's 
Life of Christ 

With the same vividness and move- 
ment that is found in the favorite juvenile 
biographies of popular heroes the author 
portrays the heroic Jesus. He is seen 
playing the games of boys; camping out 
with the fishermen ; sailing the lake in the 
storm ; braving the enmity of the mighty ; 
dying like a soldier for a holy cause. The 
book is dramatic; made of short sen- 
tences, crisp descriptions, plenty of dia- 
log. It approaches the divine Jesus 
through human greatness. 

"Dr. Forbush could not write a dull book on 
any subject, but when he brings the Fair Boy of 
the first Christian Century to the boys in the 
twentieth century — to tell the story and to apply 
it — he is at his best. The boys and the pub- 
lishers, and the fathers and mothers are all to 
be congratulated." — Bishop John H. Vincent.

Senator Albert J. Beveridge 
says of David Graham Phillips's 

Great Novel 

" ' The Deluge ' must be dramatized, for it is 
life; life brimming to the cup's edge, quaffed 
to the cup's dregs— the power of human power 
and emotion at white heat, the thrill of battle 
at its fierce climax of bayonet thrust and 
throat clutch ; the love of woman and woman's 
inexplicable caprice— all this and more like it 
make 'The Deluge * ^mesmeric in its fascina- 
tion." —Senator Albert J. Beveridge.

Great Refusal 

By MAXWELL GRAY 

Author of "The Silence of Dean Maitland " 
l2mo. Ornamental Cktb> $f*5o 

This is the story of love given up for an idea], of the 
struggle of a modern rich young man to do better than 
the rich young man in the Bible who refused to give up 
his riches to gain the kingdom of heaven T and M went away 
grieved" at his own refusal. It is a study of modern 
plutocracy. The young man learns by hard experience 
that one man cannot overcome the laziness of a nation and 
that economic laws are as immutable as the laws of health- 
But at the last he sails away to the coast of South Africa 
to found a modern Utopia, and takes with him the girl 
he really ought to marry,

A WORK OF IMMENSE IMPORTANCE 

FUTURE LIFE 

In Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science 
By LOUIS ELBE 

'"THIS is the authorized translation of the famous book which has been 
creating so wide a stir in scientific and religious circles throughout 
France, under the title "La Vie Future." It will be received with equal 
interest here, and will arouse very general discussion, as the subject is one 
which is engaging, not only scientists, but laymen, in ever-increasing num- 
bers. This volume offers for the first time a complete presentation of all the 
available evidence hitherto available only in the most scattered and inacces- 
sible forms. With great care and exactness M. Elbe has arranged a plain 
statement of the discoveries, theories, and ideas of the greatest investigators, 
together with his own illuminating views and comments, and a mass of 
authentic information regarding the beliefs of the primitive races. 

There is a constantly-increasing demand for works in this line, and book- 
sellers will appreciate the reception which will be waiting for so great a book 
as this — probably the most important ever published.

NOTES IN SEASON. 

Moffat, Yard & Company will shortly pub- 
lish Eleanor Hoyt Brainerd's "In Vanity 
Fair," a book telling of the origin and ex- 
ploitation of fashions in woman's dress, a 
field in which she is a recognized authority. 
Social phenomena of extraordinary kinds are 
at the foundation of fashion, and the book 
offers a revelation of human nature, vanity, 
extravagance, shrewdness and enterprise sel- 
dom studied against so fascinating a back- 
ground. They have also just ready "The In- 



visible BcVd," a novel by Eleanor Talbot 
a strong story of present day life 
,inj3S-eiltucky, illustrated in color by C. Allan 
Gilbert. 

L. C. Page & Co. will publish on the 15th 
inst a new novel by Lilian Bell, entitled 
"Carolina Lee," the story of a fascinating 
American girl, born and educated in Paris, 
who at the beginning of the story rides on the 
top wave of success in New York society. 
A financial catastrophe leaves her without 
means excepting an old rundown plantation 
in Virginia, which she proceeds to rebuild, 
hev efforts being crowned with surprising 
success. The book will have a frontispiece in 
color after an oil painting by Dora Wheeler 
Keith. They also announce under the title of 
'* Stand Pat" a collection of the interesting 
humorous poker stories contributed to the 
New York Sun by David Curtis, the author 
of a technical book on the game of poker. 

Charles Scribner's Sons begin their 
spring publications to-day with a volume of 
stories by Cy Warman, called "The Last 
Spike, and Other Railroad Stories." The 
book includes seventeen stories, including 
love stories, ghost stories, stories of adven- 
ture and heroism and of all kinds of life on 
trains and railroads dealing with conductors, 
trainmen, engineers and passengers. These 
are considered to be the best stories that Mr. 
Warman has ever written. They have also 
just ready the book which was awarded the 
Bross Prize, ($6000,) by the Lake Forest 
University in 1905, entitled "The Problem of 
the Old Testament." It is by Professor 
James Orr, and is said to be a remarkably 
clear and able work on this subject, intended 
for laymen as well as for scholars. The 
committee which made the award was com- 
posed of Professor Ladd, of Yale, Professor 
Ormond of Princeton, and Professor Wright, 
of Oberlin, and they unanimously agreed on 
this book as unquestionably the best of all 
submitted. 

Houghton, Mifflin & Company will pub- 
lish on February 17 "Individuality and Im- 
mortality," an essay by Professor William 
Ostwald, of Leipzig, who has finished his 
course of lectures at Harvard University and 
is now giving a series at Columbia Univer- 
sity, New York City, before returning to 
Germany. On the same date they will bring 
out the first work of fiction for this year, 
written by Miss Margaret Morse, a story of 
nature and two nature lovers, man and wo- 
man, of peculiar temperament and ideals and 
perfect affinity, which will be called "The 
Spirit of the Pines." The house i9 also 
printing the nineteenth edition of Clara Louise 
Burnham's "The Right Princess," the fifth 
of "Routine and Ideals," by Le Baron R. 
Briggs : the fourth edition of "A Third Cen- 
tury of Charades," by William Bellamy; a 
third edition of "The Ancient Grudge," by 
Arthur Stanwood Pier ; and second editions of 
Morton Dexter's "The England and Holland

Moody's "The Fire Bringer;" and of Albert 
H. Tolman's "The Views About Hamlet"

While this volume of the "American Art Annual' 
conforms in its general plan to previous issues, the 
reports of paintings sold at auction have been made 
easier for reference by a single classification under 
the name of the artist, arranged alphabetically, of 
all paintings sold at public auction for $100, and 
over, since October, 1903. Special attention is called 
to the fact that dates of birth and death and the 
nationality of artists are given in this list. The 
biographical directory of painters, sculptors and illus- 
trators is followed by a list of the sculptors and 
one of the illustrators. The directory of writers and 
lecturers on art has a supplementary list of daily 
newspapers that devote space to art matters. Be- 
sides there are other valuable features such as lists 
of art books and art magazines published in 1905-6; 
Obituaries; Scholarships and prizes; Exhibitions; Re- 
ports of art galleries and societies, etc. Illustrated 
with reproductions of twenty page pictures of recent 
art works or paintings.

no one who desires to think deeply about prayer can 
afford to lose out of sight."

Bellaire is a small college and barracks town in

the days previous 'to the Civil War because of. , the 
presence of many Southern students. Here comes 
Eunice Harlowe, a demure, Quaker-like New Eng- 
land school teacher, and as a. member of the family 
of the college president * she * is brought in contact 
with the gay, careless social life of the town. Nat- 
urally a love story evolves and the staunch little 
Northerner finds she has to choose between patriot- 
ism and the love of a man of whom her principles 
do not approve. The war tries out the dross from 
the souls of all.

Hunt, Albert Brad lee, ed. - Houseboats and 
houseboating. N. Y., Forest and Stream 
Publishing Co., 1905. c. 216 p. it pis., 
f°, cl., *$ 3 net. 

Opens with an article on "Houseboating in Amer- 
ica/' by the editor, pointing out the progress made in 
houseboating in the United States, and making known 
the opportunities American waters afford for enjoy- 
ment of the houseboating life; following is a paper 
by E. £. Thomas on "Houseboating in England;" 
one on "Interior fitting and furnishing," by A. 8. 
Hunt and "The inside route to Florida," by Captain 
T. I. Smith. Many examples of various kinds of 
houseboats are described and illustrated, such as the 
sailing houseboat, the stationary houseboat; the steam 
power for houseboats and gasolene power for house- 
boats. 

Hunt, W: Holman. Pre-Raphaelitism and

493 P- O. cl. f per set, *$io net. 
A history of the inception and development of 
the Pre-Raphaelite school of painting of which Wil- 
liam Holman Hunt was one of the leaders. The 
movement belonged to the last half of the past cen- 
tury, and was an attempt to return to nature, or 
truth in art. Besides Mr. Hunt, Rossetti, Ford 
Madox Brown, Millais and other English artists who 
afterwards became famous, were members of the 
brotherhood. The work is rich in many interests. 
It. not only goes into the motives and ambitions that 
inspired the Pre-Raphaelites but is full of details 
and anecdotes which describe and illustrate numer- 
ous interesting personalities; both artists and literary 
people were included in the author's acquaintance, 
and he tells much that one is glad to know about 
Tennyson, Thackeray, Dickens, Gladstone and others 
equally noted.

The value of walking as an exercise depends en-

net. 

We arc already indebted to Mr. Lea for "A his- 
tory of the Inquisition of the Middle Ages" (3 v.) 
and other carefully written works along the same 
I lines. In the present work he traces the character 
• and career of an institution which exercised no small 
influence on the fate of Spain and indirectly upon 
the civilized world. He also includes a brief sketch 
of the Portuguese Inquisition, which earned a reputa- 
tion even more sinister .than its Spanish prototype. 
The work opens with the accession of Ferdinand and 
Isabella, and is divided into two books. Book 1, 
"Origin and establishment" has chapters on: The 
Castilian monarchy; The Jews and the Moors; The 
Jews and the Conversos; Establishment of the In- 
quisition; The Kingdoms of Aragon. > Book 2,"Rela- 
tions with the state," contains chapters on: Relations 
with the crown; Supereminence; Privileges and ex- 
emptions; Conflicting jurisdictions; Popular hostility.

Discussion of the doctrine of Apostolic succession 

as held by the Roman Catholic and Greek churches 

as well as by many members of the English and 

Protestant Episcopal churches. The author thinks 

it can be only accepted as a plausible theory and 

can never be demonstrated • as an incontestable fact. 

It is this theory which is the real bar to Christian 

unity in that it discriminates against the validity of 

the sacraments as administered by the Protestant 

bodies. The author also states arguments against the 

proposed change of name of the Protestant Episcopal 

church to the American Catholic church.

Author is Fellow of Christ's College, Cambridge,

essays estimate the forces which are making tor 
change throughout the world but especially in the 
hngland of the last generation. A reaction has set in 
from the radical views of the last few decades. The 
author criticizes literature and politics, their possibili- 
ties and short-comings and gives short sketches of 
the influence of Henley, Shorthouse, Henry Sid«- 



bodk 'to make earnest men think." Many of the es- 
says have already appeared in English periodicals.

Completes the author's trilogy— "Christ and Anti- 
christ, of which the former volumes were "The 
death of the gods" and "The. romance of Leonardo 
da Vinci." The three novels may be read separately, 
being connected only by a strong underlying idea. 
Through many historical episodes, often brutal and 
revolting, a psychological study is made of the 
Romanoff family. Peter, though called the Great, is 
shown as a man of violent temper, self-indulgent and 
cruel; his unfortunate son Alexis is compared to 
the present Tsar Nicholas. It is a sketch, vivid and 
true, of classes and conditions, of court and society, 
of peasants and wild religious beliefs in Russia 
at the beginning of the eighteenth century.

Mr. Schillings's many journeys to East Africa to 
study the country and its beasts and birds are here 
recorded. He hunted the elephant, the rhinoceros, 
hippopotamus, buffaloes and crocodiles, giraffes, ze- 
bras, lions and leopards, and other equally fear-inspir. 
ing creatures. To photograph them in their night re- 
treats, he resorted to the flashlight with remarkable 
success, securing a series of pictures such as has 
never before been seen. His remarkable insight into 
animal life and sympathy with all wild creatures 
make his studies of their habits of exceptional value. 
The beauty of the scenery and the life of the natives 
are also carefully presented,

Scenes are laid in Poland just before the Turkish 
invasion in 1682 and 1683. The love story centers 
in a Polish girl of noble birth, and involves five 
fighting, drinking nobles of unlimited courage and 
sensitive honor. There are quarrels and duels; an 
attempted kidnapping; howling wolves and blood- 
thirsty bandits, all the characters and action serving 
to explain those qualities, national and individual, 
which have proved the strength and weakness of 
Poland.

Designed primarily for the use of the student, 
the novice, and the practical operator in conducting 
actual routine tests of cement to determine 'tis- suit- 
ability for purposes of construction, - but both/jthe 
expert and the engineer who directs this work may 
also find useful information. The general scope of 
the book covers ' a description of the properties of 
cement, the objects of the various tests, the methods 
of conducting them, the common influences and 
errors that are most lively to affect' the . determina- 
tions, and the practical interpretation of the results 
which are finally obtained. No attempt has been 
made to consider the practical use of cement and 
concrete except in so far as the conditions of actual 
work regulate the use of the various tests, while 
the data given are also applicable more to the con- 
duct of tests than to the final use of the material." —

Karl Grier had many sifts, among them the gift

his "sixth sense"; by this he was enabled, after 
going into a trance, to see into far distant coun- 
tries, and to describe the actions and appearance 
of people he had never met, even retailing their 
conversations. He is made use of by his friends 
and helps them to unravel many mysteries, and throw

their discussions of the relations of publisher 
and author, there is a special pertinency i» 
Captain Harry Graham's humorous foreword 
to his publishers, (Fox, Duffield & Co.,) in? 
his new volume of verse, "More Misrepro

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

Publishers 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 forward- 
ed, as it is of the utmost importance that the entries 
of books be made as promptly and as perfectly as pos- 
sible. In many cases booksellers and librarians de- 
pend on the Publishers' Weekly solely for their 
information. The Record of New Publications of 
the Publishes*' Weekly is the material of the 
"American Catalog/' and so forms the basis of trade 
bibliography in the United States.

THE COMMERCIAL TRAVELLER ON 
THE ROAD.* 

RAILWAY TICKETS AND HOTELS. 

There arc all sorts of ways and means by 
which a commercial traveller may arrange 
for his transportation, transfer of baggage, 
etc., that differ in almost every State of the 
Union, and for which no lasting rule can be 
laid down. In the days gone by, a traveller 
was able to save considerable money if he 
knew a friendly scalper; but his chances 
through this channel are now so slim that, as 
a rule, those who are obliged to travel "on 
time" must be content to use the thousand- 
mile tickets issued by the railway companies, 
or the so-called "Higbee ticket," good for five 
thousand miles over different lines of roads, 
enabling the traveller on one ticket to go 
from any point to any point. The passenger 
pays full rate for his ticket, supplied with 
coupons, which, in most cases, he must sign in 
the presence of the conductor every time he 
boards a train. These coupons, when can- 
celled, are awarded a rebate by the company 
issuing the ticket at the rate of ten dollars 
each thousand miles. While this system in- 

* Continuation of the series of "The Profession of 
Bookselling.'' A list of authorities quoted will be 
siren ost 



volves a certain amount of red tape, it never- 
theless saves time in making trains in a rush 
and during crowded hours. 

As to hotels, it is safe to say the best is 
none too good — not so much from the view- 
point of personal comfort as for the tone it 
lends to the house the traveller represents. 
In this respect, however, it may be necessary 
to compromise with one's dignity and resort to 
the next best; yet, unless it be "Hobson's 
choice," that is, if there be only one hotel in 
the town, it is never wise to put up at what is 
drastically referred to as a "cheap-and-nasty.'' 
In most hotels arrangements may be made 
for show rooms, so that the traveller is en- 
abled during a stay of several weeks to dis- 
play his line undisturbed and "room" in an- 
other part of the hotel. It is perhaps super- 
fluous to note in this connection that quarters 
at a hotel should be bespoken on the Euro- 
pean plan, and that the "greenhorn 11 may ask 
of the clerk at what rates he is being enter- 
tained. False modesty in this particular 
might become expensive, inasmuch as trav- 
ellers are usually entitled to a favored rate. 

When stopping at "Commercials," that is. 
hotels frequented by commercial travellers, 
the young traveller, as well as the veteran, 
often finds opportunities that are offered no- 
where else of coming into the closest touch 
with his colleagues. Indeed in this way 
friendships are formed that endure a life 
time. And for this reason we would caution 
the novice against a too hasty judging of his 
new-found brethren and against stilted stiff- 
ness and cold formality. Among the com- 
mercial travellers there are wide divergences 
of characteristics; there necessarily must be 
such. Some members of the brotherhood 
shiver and shudder at the freedom of con- 
versation sometimes carried on by its mem- 
bers after the labors of the day have ceased — 
men who have no appreciation of humor or 
wit — to whom the humor of a Sheridan, a 
Curran, Theodore Hook, Thomas Hood, or 
the well-known anecdotes of Dr. Abernethy 
and others, are as a foreign tongue, and as- 
sociated with distasteful ideas and misunder- 
stood lives. As in the outer world, so in the 
inner and smaller world of the fraternity of 
commercial travellers will be found repre- 
sentatives of narrow views, and well-meant 
but misplaced judgment of the acts and do- 
ings of those around them. If an individual 
does not smoke, there is no necessity for his 
giving statistics to prove that the money 
spent for tobacco might do much more good 
if spent in other directions, which may or

may not be true. It all depends upon the 
point of view. The total abstainer — a good 
man, and one who often does a great deal of 
good work — need not be a bore to his fellow 
travellers. In many cases much good has been 
done by personal example in right living. But 
it is dangerous to set up an "Ebenezer" for 
one's fellow men, in season and out of season. 
There is danger, as we have said, of such a 
man becoming a bore; and a bore, no matter 
how good his intention may be, is a nuisance 
not tolerated in any company. 

PACKING AND LEAVING HOME. 

After making up his route, the traveller 
turns his attention to packing the samples 
which he has selected with great care and 
judgment. In the end he will find that his 
eyes have been larger than the capacity of his 
trunks, and that discrimination is needed to 
get all within the available compass. Books 
must be packed solidly, and, after laboring for 
some time, it will often be found that room 
must be made for still other books that are 
needed. It may be necessary to pack and re- 
pack the trunk several times before all that 
is needed can be included, and often it may 
be necessary to carry one or two books in a 
grip or in the hand. After the traveller has 
actually started it may take a week or longer 
to discover just how his samples may be most 
advantageously stowed away. After that the 
work of unpacking and packing becomes a 
mere matter of routine. 

At last the time comes for leaving home — 
for every conscientious man the most trying 
period of all his work. He passes out to face 
possible dangers, accidents, sickness and pri- 
vations, leaving his lonely family day by day 
anxiously watching his route. In some re- 
spects the family left behind by the traveller 
bears the harder portion of the separation. The 
traveller is kept busy all the time; he meets 
many old friends and forms new acquaintances 
who often smoothe the way for him ; whereas 
those he has left at home miss the companion- 
ship of the absent one and are in daily dread 
of bad news. Of course, the traveller often 
must endure lonely hours at large hotels and 
elsewhere en route when, overwhelmed for the 
time with defeats or bodily ailments, he 
cannot come into touch with a kindred spirit 
with whom to exchange confidences. Yet 
new places and faces help him over the rough 
places, while those he leaves behind must 
meet their difficulties under the old surround- 
ings, deprived of the counsel and aid of their 
breadwinner abroad. 



COLLIER'S NOT GUILTY OF LIBEL. 

The sensational trial of the suit for libel 
brought by Judge Joseph M. Deuel, of the 
Special Sessions of New York City, against 
Norman Hapgood, editor of Collier's Weekly, 
resulted in the acquittal of Hapgood. The 
jury reached this verdict, practically without 
deliberation, on January 27. It will be re- 
membered that the action was brought against 
Collier's by Judge Deuel because of its criti- 
cism of the Judge for his connection with the 
business management of Town Topics while 
on the bench, in violation of the charter of 
New York City, which provides that no Jus- 
tice of the Court of Special Sessions shall 
"carry on any business, or practice as an at- 
torney or counsellor-at-law in any court in 
this city," . . . "but each such Justice shall 
devote his whole time and capacity, so far as 
the public interest demands, to the duties of 
his office." The case was conducted on most 
extraordinary lines, because although it was 
in form a trial of Mr. Hapgood, it was in 
reality a trial of Colonel William D. Mann 
and Justice Joseph M. Deuel for their manage- 
ment of Town Topics. At the conclusion of 
the trial Colonel Mann was arrested on a 
warrant charging him, as alleged, with hav- 
ing committed perjury while testifying in the 
trial. Pending examination Colonel Mann, 
who denies the allegation, was released on 
bail, which was fixed at $10,000. 



WHO PRINTED THE "CATHOLICON ?" 

The annual monograph of the Gutenberg 
Society, the fourth of the series, published re- 
cently, deals with the question as to who 
printed the James de Balboa "Catholicon," a 
sort of exposition of the Faith, the two earl- 
iest issues of which have usually been attrib- 
uted to the press of Gutenberg. One of these 
issues is dated 1460, but both are regarded as 
books produced by Gutenberg at Mayence 
after the trouble with Schoeffer had led to an 
abrupt dissolution of their partnership. Dr. 
Gottfried Zedler, librarian of the National 
Library at Wiesbaden, in this monograph 
deals with the dated issue of the "Catholicon," 
which has been the subject of considerable 
controversy. While it is generally supposed 
to have been printed by Gutenberg a respect- 
able number of authorities, on the other hand, 
attribute it to another printer, usually to 
Schoeffer. Dr. Zedler reviews the articles 
that have been written on the subject of the 
printing of the "Catholicon," and points out 
that the majority of modern writers attribute 
the book to the press of Gutenberg. The 
epoch-making studies of Schwenke placed the 
matter on a different footing, as he came to 
the conclusion that Gutenberg was not the 
printer. In the opinion of Dr. Zedler, how- 
ever, the words at the beginning of the con- 
cluding paragraph in the "Catholicon" clearly 
prove, to his mind, that Gutenberg was the 
author of the type. The words "Altissimi 
presido . . . Quique numero sepe parvulis 
reuelat quod sapientibus celat," Dr. Zedler 
claims, only have sense if the inventor him- 
self is speaking. Gutenberg, following his

usual practice, does not advertise himself 
by name in these lines, as Fust and Schoef- 
fer were wont to do, but leaves it to the 
reader to discern that this beautiful conclud- 
ing paragraph can refer only to himself, al- 
though he attributes the merit of his invention 
to a gift of the Almighty. Even if this con- 
cluding paragraph did not exist and was not, 
in the opinion of Dr. Zedler, the most im- 
portant document left for enabling an idea 
of the deeply religious and unassuming per- 
sonality of Gutenberg to be formed, it would 
be still possible to give him his due. By 
comparing the "Catholicon" type with contem- 
porary and later type in the fifteenth century, 
it can be seen that no other letter is equal to 
it in imitating the artistic missal script of 
that century, and that it is similar to other 
work of the Master. Dr. Zedler concludes 
his pamphlet with an investigation of the 
technical processes involved in the production 
of the type, and with a review of the work of 
SchoefFer, etc., all of which is fully illustrated 
with facsimiles. 

The society's fourth annual report is rather 
more elaborate than usual, and contains a 
paper by Heinrich Wallau on the art of 
Gutenberg, illustrated by reproductions from 
old engravings, etc. Wallau appears to have 
no hesitation in concluding that Gutenberg's 
knowledge of the goldsmith's art would nat- 
urally have led him to become, not a xylo- 
grapher — as some of the opponents of his 
claim to be considered the first printer have 
assumed—but a genuine founder of movable 
types, with which he probably experimented 
before the middle of the fifteenth century. 



THE ARMSTRONG INSURANCE IN- 
VESTIGATION REPORT. 

The dissension over the printing of the re- 
port of the Armstrong insurance investigating 
committee came to a head in the New York 
Senate, on January 25, when Senator Arm- 
strong, the chairman of the investigating 
committee, introduced a bill appropriating 
$20,000 for the printing of the report, and 
Assemblyman Cox introduced the same bill 
in the Assembly. Senator Armstrong charged 
that the Brandow Printing Company, the 
State Printer, had "held up" the report until 
it could also print a private edition which it 
expected to sell at $150 a set, thereby making 
from $60,000 to $100,000 profit, in addition to 
the appropriation for the work from the State. 
To block this movement Assemblyman Cox 
secured a copyright on the report. A. S. 
Brandow in reply denies that there has ever 
been any desire on the part of the State 
Printer to delay the delivery of the work, 
and that, in order to facilitate it, he made ar- 
rangements with a New York printer, at a 
considerable advance over what the State 
was obliged to pay him to do the work. As 
a verification of this statement Mr. Brandow 
said that the entire testimony is well along 
toward completion, that five volumes have 
been completed and that the balance of the 
testimony will be printed and bound ready for 
delivery early next week.

told," and "The Poet, Miss Kate and I," a book 
by a new author, which made a splendid start 
in the Christmas season. There will also be 
continued the Valentine edition of "Old Love 
Stories Retold.'* The two new Valentine edi- 
tions will be put up in most attractive boxes, 
the covers of which will be a representation of 
the old fashioned deep, lace valentine, in the 
centre of which will appear the covers of the 
books — both landscapes in these cases, and 
lending themselves admirably to the adapta- 
tions. They have in preparation a volume 
entitled "Folly," by Edith Rickert, whose 
"Reaper" attracted wide attention a little over 
a year ago. 

J. S. Ogilvie Publishing Company call 
special attention to Ogilvie's Fun Books, of 
which there are ten numbers, recently taken 
over from The Arkell Publishing Co. : "A 
Job Lot of Jokes," "Uncle Sam's Jokes," 
"Uncle Sam's Joker," "Listen to This," 
"Foolish House Sayings," "SomethuV Doin'," 
"Sailors' Yarns," "That Reminds Me," "A 
Trip to Laughland," "Weber and Fields" 
Funnyisms," "Roger Brothers in Funville." 
The books are full of pictures and nonsense 
of humorous quality, and will no doubt sell 
rapidly. They are constantly adding to their 
long list of popular plays, which now contains 
79 numbers, and their Comic Post Cards are 
also selling steadily. This house also has on 
its list many of Richard Henry Savage's most 
popular stories as well as several of Nat 
Gould's, Guy Boothby's and T. W. Hanshaw's. 

Dodd, Mead & Company will publish this 
month a clever automobile story by Mrs. 
Louise Cosser Hale, entitled "A Motor Car 
Divorce," with most satisfactory plot and 
irresistible humor, just the book to read aloud. 
The author's husband has furnished the 36 
pretty landscapes with which the book is il- 
lustrated. They also announce for this 
month "A Lame Dog's Diary," by S. Mac- 
naughton, whose hero is really a soldier 
who at Magersfontein, during the Boer War. 
was shot in both legs. His devoted and 
clever sister devotes herself to cheering his 
helplessness. A young widow advises him to 
keep a diary after he tires of wood carving 
and worsted work, and through this pastime 
comes the satisfactory climax. Bettina von 
Hutten's sequel to "Pam," entitled "What 
Happened to Pam," will be published in 
April. 

Doubleday, Page & Co. will publish on 
February 15 Upton Sinclair's long expected 
novel, "The Jungle," a daringly realistic novel 
of the sordid working and living conditions 
in Chicago; which appears under the name of 
Packingtown. The writer spent seven weeks 
studying the stock yards alone, and he re- 
ports the conditions there a menace to the 
health of the civilized world. The first edi- 
tion will be very large, and a large edition is 
also already sold to Australia. The publica- 
tion of "How to Buy Life Insurance," by 
"Q. P.," has been postponed until February 
23. The book treats a policy as merchandise, 
and tells customers how to buy intelligently. 
It will give information not hitherto avail- 



able in so simple a form. The complete "Dog 
Book," by James Watson, will not be issued 
until May 10. It will be in two massive vol- 
umes, a worthy companion to "The Poultry 
Book" of last year. 

Henry Holt & Company will publish dur- 
ing the month an authorized vocabulary edi- 
tion of Ferdinand von Saar's "Die Stein- 
klopfer," edited by Dr. Charles H. Handschin 
and Professor Edwin C. Roedder, of the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin. This is supposed to be 
the first "labor" novel published in German 
literature. Its author is an Austrian, the 
creator of the Austrian short novel. The 
story tells of two stonebreakers on the great 
mountain railway. They have just con- 
cluded a contract with the Hon. D. S. Alex- 
ander, a New York Congressman from Buf- 
falo, and a member of the Committee on the 
Judiciary, for "The Political History of New 
York State." The first two volumes, cover- 
ing the years 1 774-1861, may be expected in 
the early spring. The author's work is said 
by competent judges to be not only sound 
historically, but enriched by highly vivid 
character studies. Auerbach's "Villa on the 
Rhine," which took the world by storm forty 
years ago, continues its steady sale in James 
Davis's translation, and has just been sent 
again on its periodical trip to the press. 

The proceedings of the recent Inter-Church 
Conference on Federation will be published 
by the Fleming H. Revel 1 Company during 
the month of March. The report will be a 
six hundred page volume, with a great many 
illustrations, and will contain a complete rec- 
ord of the acts, resolutions, committee reports 
and the text of the addresses. Of these there 
were about seventy-five, including those from 
such speakers as Justice Brewer, Dr. Henry 
van Dyke, Bishops Doane, Galloway and Fow- 
ler, John Wanamaker and Judge Grosscup. 
This alone would make the volume of extra- 
ordinary value. The publication of the "Pro- 
ceedings" is in no sense a private enterprise. 
It is part of the work of the Conference, de- 
signed to extend its influence, and to carry its 
message to those unable to attend all of its 
sessions. The details of publication are in 
charge of a special committee appointed by 
the Conference Executive Committee, and the 
manuscripts were prepared and arranged by 
an editorial committee, of which the Rev. 
Drs. M. E. Dwight, William H. Roberts, K 
B. Sanford, and John B. Devins and W. T. A. 
Demarest are members. 

Harper & Brothers will publish on the 8th 
in st. Ottilie A. Liljencrantz's new novel, 
"Randvar the Songsmith," the basis of which 
is the legend connected with the old stone 
mill or tower at Newport, R. I., one of the 
most interesting landmarks in America, which 
is supposed to date from 1000 to 1100 A.D.,and 
is thought to mark Norse civilization of the 
new world. They will shortly issue the ini- 
tial volume of a series of novelettes to be 
brought out under the editorship of W. D. 
Howells and H. M. Alden, the editor of 
Harper's Magazine, which is to include only 
the best, the most interesting, and, in the

judgment of the editors, the most lasting, 
work of our leading* American writers. The 
title of the first volume is "Their Husband's 
Wives/' They. will also publish this month 
a work entitled - "Evolution the Master-Key," 
by C. W. Saleeby, author. of "Cycle of Life," 
in which the author reviews the progress of 
the doctrine of evolution since it was first 
postulated by Herbert Spencer in his "First 
Principles" Over 1 forty years ago, and shows 
how all the -discoveries of, the twentieth' cen- 
tury, especially that of radium, only make 
possible to. a greater extent the demonstration 
of this fundamental law: 

The Burrows Publishing Company, 
Cleveland; have now ready volume 2 of Elroy 
McKendree Avery's important "History of the 
United States," and announce that- volumes 3 
and 4 will follow at shorter intervals. It has 
been found necessary to extend the great work 
to fifteen volumes, the twelve originally planned 
not being sufficient for the original scope of 
the work. Those who have already sub- 
scribed will receive the fifteen volumes at the 
price of the original twelve, and new sub- 
scribers upon the basis of fifteen volumes will 
obtain the set at that rate even should it be 
found necessary to extend the set by another 
volume yet, that is to sixteen volumes. The 
publishers are confident that this extension of 
the work will result in a betterment of the 
series, because they will be under less neces- 
sity of skeletonizing or omitting, and can give 
the same incomparable treatment to the map 
and illustrating that has been attained in the 
early volumes. Another romance of the new 
South appears in "Stanton White," by Dr. 
Asa Zadel Hall, presenting the educational 
and social reform of the South and the intri- 
cate difficulties of the race problem, which 
the story shows must be settled through the 
North and South if there is to be a practical 
enduring race uplift. 

J. B. Lippincott Company have regard for 
times and seasons in offering two dainty 
siftbooks for Valentine Day remembrances. 
Ralph Henry Barbour's "An Orchard Prin- 
cess" is an idyl of young love amid the 
spring blossoms. It is prettily bound in dec- 
orated cloth and enclosed in an ornamented 
box, while the numerous illustrations in colors 
with charming marginal designs, are by James 
Montgomery Fla?g. "Miss Cherry Blossom 
of Tokyo," the Japanese romance by John 
Luther Long, appears in a lovely new edition. 
Its nine full-page pictures are in colors, as 
are also the many smaller Japanese pictures 
printed in the tints of old Japan. Cherry 
blossoms decorate the lining papers, the cover 
is characteristically Japanese and the volume 
is encased in a tasteful box. This house has 
also just published a second edition, illus- 
trated, of that exciting tale of politics and 
love, "The Wife of the Secretary of State," by 
Ella Middleton Tybout; and will issue imme- 
diately a new novel by E. F. Benson entitled 
"The Angel of Pain," wherein the author 
tells the story of a great sacrifice for love. 
It is interesting to note how far away from 
his "Dodo" period Mr. Benson has come in 
this book and "The Challoners."

are publishing this week "The Cleansing of 
the Lords," by Colonel Frank Graham Wintle, 
which rests on the passing of an act of Parlia- 
ment to remove from the House of Lords-all 
peers who have not shown the required effic- 
iency as rulers of their country, and to supply 
their places with active patriots regardless of 
their native born rank. The author has op- 
portunity for an amusing but thoughtful pic- 
ture of English political and social life. A 
large African ivory trust influences the situa- 
tion and its consequences. They have also just 
ready "Selections from the Poetry of John 
Payne,'' by Tracy and Lucy Robinson. John 
Payne is chiefly known as a translator from 
the Arabic. Persian, Italian and French, his 
rendering of the "Arabian Nights" and of the 
poems of Villon being especially famous. His 
original work, however, was specially com- 
mended by Home, Tennyson, Browning, Ros- 
setti, Swinburne and others of highest rank 
among the poets. "Lilliput Islands and In- 
nocents' Revels,'' by W. B. Rands; and "A 
Year of Songs for a Baby in a Garden," by 
W. Graham Robertson, are two juveniles in 
verse, the former edited by R. Brimley John- 
son, and both artistically illustrated. The 
interest of the world in the present confer- 
ence at Algeciras draws special attention to 
"The Truth Aboi:t Morocco: an indictment 
of the British Foreign Office," by M. Aflalo, 
with introduction by R. B. Cunningham Gra- 
ham, which appeared about a year ago. Mr. 
Aflalo has for many years been connected 
with the government of Morocco, and he 
writes with authority of the true motives of 
France, Germany and England regarding this 
northwestern corner of Africa.

A POPULAR POET 



Mr. Edmund Vance Cooke, author of €€ Chronicles 
of the Little Tot" and -Rimes to be Read/' has the 

rare gift of being able to reach the hearts of the people. Those who 
were fortunate enough to hear him at the Booksellers' Dinner in New 
York claim for him a great success. We have reason to have faith 
in Mr. Cooke's work, for it has the quality that appeals to the masses. 
It is original, bright and direct verse of unfailing interest. Few of the 
modern poets are his equal, and none better. 

But what does the public say ? Why, we could print pages. 
Here's one letter from Rev. Bernard Lee — a long one — but worth 
reading every line : 

"Dear Sirs: 

"In reply to yours of January 20th, relative to The Chronicles of the Little 
Tot,' by Edmund Vance Gooke, I must say that not for many a clay have I en- 
joyed such pleasure as that in which I read his beautifully delightful book 
through. 

"My attention was drawn to his book first by Mr. M. J. Lyons, of T. Pillot's 
store (Houston, Tex.), who showed me the piece called The Moo-Cow- Moo.* 
I came home and the words were ringing in my ears. A few days later he sent 
me a leaflet with The Moo-Cow-Moo* on it, I read it to our school children 
who were delighted, and on my rounds among my people, did not fail to recite 
it for the little ones, who are my favorites in every family — I could not resist 
getting the book — aye, several of them, as many as five — and had not near enough 
to give my little friends during the holidays. / could not keep a copy while the 
children were hungry for them. 

" Every page of the book is good . It is all so real — so redolent of joy and 

youth, so childlike, so pure and clean. Such lessons can be taught young and 
old by it, that I would fain have every 'little tot/ and grown-up folks as well, 
read it and enjoy it. 

"When I go to Houston again I shall see Mr. Cooke's other works, and, no 
doubt, will be obliged to thank you soon for having referred me to such sources 
of pleasure and innocent fun. 

"Respectfully yours, 

"Bernard Lee/'

The Angel of Pain

Mr. Benson, who got so far away from the humorous frivol and sentimen-

By GORDON HOLMES 

Just as an indication — of the only four 
novels reviewed in the New York 
Globe on Saturday, January 27th, one 
was about "Grier," one was about 
"Arncliffe." 

Conspicuously entertaining fiction is 
the reason these two stand out from

In a charming villa just outside of Florence, be- 
longing to a young American widow, Mrs. Craven, 
the characters of the story are brought together; 
the scene afterwards changes to a little house among 
the hills also overlocking Florence. The characters, 
with one or two exceptions; are Americans who play 
their parts through a beautiful Italian summer. Love 
is the impelling motive all through, one of the men 
having come all the way from Chicago, to revive his

[Waseca, Minn, Ja. E. Child,] 1905. c. 
847 p. pors. O. cl, $4; hf. mor, $5. 
Up to the date of its settlement Waseca County 
was a portion of that extensive region known as 
Blue Earth County. Not a single white man then 
had a habitation within its borders. Its solitude was 
invaded occasionally by sonu hunter and trapper, 
and by wandering bands of Sioux Indians. The 
soil was unusually rich, and it abounded in every 
kind of bird and wild game. The details of its settle* 
ment by white men are of more than local interest. 
The story is of brave endurance of privation, of per- 
severance fn the face of apparent defeat, and of final 
triumph over all obstacles. Mr. Child follows out 
the lives of the many pioneers of that day, besides 
giving many romantic personal adventures.

~ennie Jerome a beautiful American girl. This 
iiography written by his son, has but one chapter 
devoted to his father's private life. The work deals 
chiefly with the ten years of his public life as 
leader of the House of Commons and Chancellor of 



& 



the Exchequer in Lord Salisbury's cabinet His 
meteoric course in English politics, his early death 
in 1895 made him a most interesting figure not only 
at home but in this country. The biography is 
based upon the many letters and papers he left. 
The story is largely one of explanation and defense.

Judah Hallevi, even better known as Jehudah 
Levita, was one of the most learned of the Jewish 
writers of the Middle Ages. Almost alone he stood 
out among the Jewish writers and contended that the 
Jewish idea of God was the result of direct revela- 
tion; that no school of thought or philosophy could 
have shaped it. He lived among the Arabians and 
wrote their language fluently. This book known as 
the Kusari and by various other spellings contains 
the arguments by which he sought to persuade the 
men of his faith of their duties and privileges as 
Jews

how the department is hampered in its work by the 
petty annoying and obstructive authority of the 
Canal Commission. Red-tape and ill-divided author-

recent historical and literary research, and then 
to indicate lines of practical application for those 
principles of Divine government which it so im- 
pressively illustrates. The volume is thus intended 
to be complementary to the commentary in the 
"Century Bible," to which reference should be made 
on questions of verbal interpretation as well as all 
matters concerning authorship, date and construc- 
tion." — Preface.

Four daughters of a well to do Kentucky family 
marry men whose livelihood depends respectively 
on sugar, tobacco and cotton growing and on New 
York mercantile life. This slender thread of a story 
serves as the means for a fierce arraignment of 
modern business conditions — the trusts versus the 
people. The outcome of combination is shown and 
the final uprising of the workers against the money 
magnates and their political tools is narrated.

Author is Professor of Educational Psychology in 
Teachers' College, Columbia University. He aims 
to make the study of teaching scientific and prac- 
tical — "scientific in the sense of dealing with veri- 
fiable fa*ts rather than attractive opinions, practical 
in the sense of giving knowledge and power that 
will make a difference in the actual work of teach- 
ing." It follows the example of the better books on 
education in basing principles of teaching upon the 
laws of psychology, and demands of students knowl- 
edge of the elements of psychology, particularly of 
dynamic psychology.

FOUNDED BY F LEYPOLDT. 



FEBRUARY 10, 1906. 

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

Publishers 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 forward- 
ed, as it is of the utmost importance that the entries 
of books be made as promptly and as perfectly as pos- 
sible. In many cases booksellers and librarians de- 
pend on the Publishers' Weekly solely for their 
information. The Record of New Publications of 
the Publishers' Weekly is the material of the 
"American Catalog," and so forms the basis of trade 
bibliography in the United States. 

"I hold every man a debtor to his profes- 
sion, from the which, as men do of course 
seek to receive countenance and profit, so 
ought they of duty to endeavor themselves by 
way of amends to be a help and an ornament 
thereunto."— \jobd Bacon. 



"ABANDONMENT" OF COPYRIGHT. 

The decision of Judge Sanborn of Chicago, 
in the United States Circuit Court, in the 
case of Harper v. Donohue, involving the 
American copyright in "The Masquerader," 
the work of an English author, is a most 
important contribution to the settlement of 
the specific question of "abandonment" of 
copyright. Its discussion of the general princi- 
ples of copyright bearing on this question and 
its citations of related cases are so important 
that we give the decision in full and commend 
it to the careful consideration of the trade and 
of all interested in copyright protection. 

The gist of the case is the defendants' claim 
that since the authorized English publishers 
printed the story in Blackwood's Magazine, of 
which copies were sold and circulated in the 
United States, as well as in book form in 
Great Britain, in both cases without the Amer- 
ican copyright notice, the copyright taken out 
by the authorized American publishers was 
thereby abandoned, and that the defendants 
were within their rights in reprinting the story 
from the authorized English edition. Judge 
Sanborn holds not only that the American 
publishers had a right to enter copyright as 
they did, but that copyright protection is for- 
feited only by "abandonment or public dedi- 
cation by the owner of a limited domestic 
copyright himself," that is, in the present case, 
the American publisher as the assign of the 
author for the American market. This rule 
he applies in the present case to the protec- 



tion of the Harper authorized edition of "The 
Masquerader" — a wholesome decision, which 
will be welcomed by friends of copyright pro- 
tection as in the interest of good morals. 

It is important to note that Judge San- 
born distinguishes this case from that of 
Merriam v. United Dictionary Co., in which 
Judge Kohlsaat held that the Merriams had 
abandoned their American copyright on cer- 
tain of Webster's dictionaries, a case which 
is now under appeal to the higher courts. In 
that case the English edition was made from 
duplicate American plates, and the American 
copyright notice was omitted from the Eng- 
lish edition with the knowledge and assent of 
the American copyright proprietors. Judge 
Sanborn holds, with Judge Kohlsaat, that this 
did work an abandonment of the American 
copyright — an interpretation by the U. S. Cir- 
cuit Court of Appeals which has the briefs 
now under advisement. 

Judge Sanborn's discussion of the main 
question and of other questions incidentally 
involved emphasizes the desirability that the 
new law should be clear and certain in pro- 
viding that dedication or abandonment should 
not be presumed into innocent acts. The es- 
sential principle of copyright is that the au- 
thor directly or through his agents or assigns 
is entitled to the benefits of his work like 
any other laborer, and that no pirate should 
be entitled to run off with his possessions be- 
cause the author happens not to be sitting on 
his property at the moment. 



A good deal of stress is laid by Judge San- 
born on the fact that the reprint of "The 
Masquerader" was made from an English 
copy, the importation of which was illegal 
under the copyright act. It is scarcely to be 
supposed that the reprint would have been 
less illegal if it had been made from a copy 
imported under the permissive clauses of the 
copyright, as by a public library or by an in- 
dividual for use and not for sale. Such an 
argument would reach a reductio ad absurdum 
in a claim that the particular copy of "The 
Masquerader" from which the reprint was made 
was imported "not for sale," but "for use"— in 
reprinting. The Publishers' Copyright League, 
supported by the authors, points out that the 
importations permitted under the act of 1891 
were contrary to the principles of copyright, 
and, if at all admissible, were much too sweep- 
ing. The new copyright act should certainly 
limit this permission, and should also care- 
fully provide that imported copies thus per- 
mitted should not in any way work a vitia- 
tion of American copyright.

The clever Japanese have certainly stolen 
a march on their American brethren in the 
pirated editions of Barnes's school readers, 
copies of which have been held up in the 
San Francisco custom house pending decision 
on the copyright questions involved. The in- 
cident illustrates the position in which Eng- 
lish authors and publishers were placed in 
America before the international copyright 
amendment of 1891, and, as in the case of the 
present boycott in China, we are now offered 
a dose of our own medicine. ^The reprinting 
of American books in Japan is not, however, 
altogether new. It is curiously noteworthy 
that Japan long refused to enter into an in- 
ternational copyright agreement with the 
United States because our country declined 
to put itself on a plane with other civilized 
nations by becoming a signatory of the Berne 
convention. Happily, we have now a conven- 
tion with that country, which will maintain 
copyright relations in fairly satisfactory shape. 



A. S. BARNES & CO. TAKE OVER THE 
KELLOGG PUBLICATIONS 

A publishing announcement of unusual in- 
terest and importance is the purchase by A. 
S. Barnes & Co. of the four periodicals, the 
book list and other property of The United 
Educational Company, formerly E. L. Kellogg 
& Co. and E. O. Vaile. 

The periodicals include the widely-known 
Teachers' Magazine, a magazine occupying 
a field by itself as a practical assistant and 
representative of teachers in the primary, in- 
termediate and grammar grades throughout 
the country, which is published monthly with 
illustrations; The School Journal, a weekly 
journal of education, presenting new move- 
ments in education with special reference to 
intermediate and secondary schools; Our 
Times, a weekly journal of current events, a 
popular digest of the events of the times for 
general readers and also adapted for practical 
school use: and Educational Foundation, a 
monthly magazine of pedagogy, which occu- 
pies a distinct place in the educational field. 
These periodicals cover the entire work from 
the primary to the end of the secondary 
schools. 

The list of pedagogical books, teachers' 
helps, supplementary books, and school 
entertainments acquired by A. S. Barnes 
& Co. includes The Teachers' Library, 
a series of practical professional books for 
teachers, containing over twenty volumes, and 
The Teachers' Month by Month Books for 
primary grades, including timely readings, 
anniversary features and class-room work 
from day to day. The books cover the sub- 
jects nf principles and science of education, 
school management and methods of teaching, 
psychology for teachers, history of education. 
methods in history and child study, the latter 
subject including kindergarten and primary 



methods, early education, Froebel and kindred 
topics. Other divisions of the list include a 
variety of teachers' aids, methods in arith- 
metic, geography, nature study, manual train- 
ing, reading and physiology, with examination 
and question books, art books, etc One feat- 
ure of the list is the very large number of pop- 
ular and useful entertainment, exercise, play 
and drill books and books for special days. 
The annual "School Directories," founded by 
E. O. Vaile, fifteen in number, covering 24 
States, form another feature of this purchase. 
The list, which is probably the most com- 
prehensive in its field, represents a full and 
practical co-operation with the needs of teach- 
ers of all grades, and aims to provide definite 
and concrete aids for this work. 

It is understood that the plans of A. S. 
Barnes & Co. include many important im- 
provements and developments of both the pe- 
riodicals and the book list along such new 
educational lines as are approved by educa- 
tional authorities. 



THE SAALFIELD PUBLISHING COM- 
PANY IN NEW QUARTERS. 

The Saalfield Publishing Company, of 
Akron, Ohio, one of the most progressive 
publishing houses in the Middle West, have 
purchased a new plant, located in the heart of 
the manufacturing district of that city of man- 
ufactures. A. J. Saalfield, president of the 
company, explains that the move was neces- 
sitated by the growing business of his com- 
pany, which demanded the better business 
facilities amply afforded by their new lo- 
cation. They were installed in the new 
plant with the energy that characterizes the 
concern. Not even the fact that they moved 
their entire warerooms from one end of the 
city to the other was permitted to interrupt 
the usual business routine, and shipments 
were made daily. They will occupy the entire 
new building with their general offices and 
extensive warerooms. 

It will be remembered that in January, 1900, 
A. J. Saalfield purchased the publishing de- 
partment of the Werner Company, and the 
business has since been conducted in the name 
of the Saalfield Publishing Company. The 
original line of books has been greatly in- 
creased, special attention being given to the 
production of popular juveniles, of which 
they have one of the brightest lines on the 
market. These, together with a varied assort- 
ment of miscellaneous and subscription books, 
make the Saalfield catalogue one of interest 
to all dealers. 

Mr. Saalfield has just started on a business 
trip to the Pacific coast. He now makes this 
trip annually, and the remarkable energy of 
the man is shown by the fact that he visits 
the trade in every town of importance west 
of the Mississippi in ten weeks. His sample 
trunks are said to carry a more attractive line 
of new books than ever before, and among 
them are some . novelties that will prove the 
most popular of this season's offering to book- 
buyers.

"ABANDONMENT" OF COPYRIGHT 

DOES NOT APPLY TO "THE 

MASQUERADER." 

The following is the decision of Judge San- 
born, of Chicago, in the United States Circuit 
Court for the Northern District of Illinois, 
Eastern Division, respecting abandonment of 
copyright in the case of Harper & Brothers v. 
M. A. Donohue & Company, in regard to the 
reprinting by the defendants of the novel 
'The Masquerader" : 

Katherine Cecil Thurston, the author, is a 
subject of King Edward vii., and as such has 
the same privilege of copyright in the United 
States as if a citizen of this country. This is 
secured to her by the International Copyright 
Act of March 3, 1891 (26 Stat. 1105), the 
Berne Convention, and the proclamation of 
the President of July 1, 1891, provided for by 
such act, 27 Stat. 981. As author of the work 
called "The Masquerader," or "John Chil- 
cote, M.P.," the literary property vested in 
her consisted, so far as here material, of the 
following rights, privileges or powers: 

Before publication: The sole, exclusive in- 
terest, use and control ; the right to its name ; 
to control or prevent publication ; the right of 
private exhibition, for criticism or otherwise, 
reading, representation, and restricted circula- 
tion; to copy, and permit others to copy, and 
to give away a copy; to translate or drama- 
tize the work; to print without publication; 
to make qualified distribution; the right to 
make tlje first publication; the right to sell 
and assign her interest, either absolutely, or 
conditionally, with or without qualification, 
limitation or restriction, territorial or other- 
wise, by oral or written transfer. Such lit- 
erary property is not subject either to execu- 
tion or taxation, because this might include a 
forced sale, the very thing the owner has the 
right to prevent. 

After publication : Unrestricted publication, 
without copyright, is a transfer to the public 
to do most of the things the author might do, 
in common with her, except all right of trans- 
fer and sale, which remains to the author; 
but without advantage, since the work has 
become, by the publication, common property. 

The copyright acts substantially give the 
following additional rights: To copyright, 
and thus secure the sole privilege of unlim- 
ited multiplication and sale of copies; to sell 
or transfer the unlimited right of reproduc- 
tion, sale and publication, the limited right of 
serial publication, the right of publication in 
book form, the right of translation, the right 
of dramatization or one or more of these 
rights in specific territory, and the right to 
secure a copyright either generally, or in one 
or more countries whose laws permit it, either 
in the name of the author or assignee. Also 
the right to the author to license the sale or 
other restricted enjoyment of some lesser 
right, without the power to copyright. 

The author and complainant made a writ- 
ten contract which finally became a binding 
obligation September 29, 1903. It contained a 
grant on the part of the author of the exclu- 
sive right of serial publication of "The Mas- i 
cnierader" in Harper's Bazar in the United 



States and Canada, and the exclusive right of 
printing and publishing in book form in the 
United States, and to supply the Canadian 
market. Publication in book form to be 
simultaneous in the United States and Eng- 
land, or at a date mutually satisfactory to the 
Harpers and Blackwood & Sons (who pub- 
lished the British edition). The author con- 
tracts not to publish an abridged or other 
edition or book of similar character tending to 
interfere with its sale, without the publisher's 
consent; and that the book does not violate 
copyright, or contain anything libelous, etc. 

The author reserved the rights of transla- 
tion and dramatization. 

The publishers agreed to pay $2500 for the 
serial publication, and a certain royalty on the 
book; and to take all steps necessary under 
the United States copyright acts "to secure 
their own rights and those of the author in 
said work." They give no guaranty of se- 
curing copyright outside the United States, 
nor issue special foreign editions, nor sell 
translation or dramatic rights. 

If the book remains out of print for six 
consecutive months, the right to publish in 
book form shall revert to the author. 

Harper's Bazar is a serial monthly maga* 
zine published in the United States. Black* 
wood's Magazine is a like publication having 
a British and an American edition, the former 
published in Edinburgh and the latter in New 
York, which are identical, except advertising 
matter. The successive chapters of the book 
were published serially in all these magazines, 
during the year 1904. Blackwood published, 
in both the United States and Great Britain 
chapters 10, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 23, 24, 
26, 27, 28, 29, 31 and 32, one month earlier 
than Harper, and chapters 19, 25, 30, 33 and 
34 two months earlier. Harper & Brothers 
had no knowledge of, nor did they consent to, 
the publication in serial form by the Black- 
woods in the United States. The work was 
simultaneously published by both Harper & 
Brothers and the Blackwoods in the United 
States and Great Britain, about the first of 
October, 1004. 

Harper & Brothers claim copyright on chap- 
ters 1 to 27 by virtue of their publication in 
the Bazar in the January to September num- 
bers, and on the balance by publication in 
book form. Their deposit of titles, ropy- 
right notices, deposit of numbers and books 
were as follows: On June 12, 1903, they de- 
posited the title of the Bazar thus : "Harper's 
Bazar, Vol. xxxvni, No. 1, January, 1904." 
On January 2, 1904, the title "Harper's Bazar, 
Vol. xxxvni, No. 2, February, 1904," and on 
the same date like titles, mutatis mutandis, 
for March to June, 1904; and on June 13, 
1904, the titles for the remaining months of 
1904, in like form. And also, not later than 
the day of the publication of each number 
deposited in the New York mail, properly ad- 
dressed, two copies of each of the several 
monthly numbers for 1904. 

Complainant also printed a copyright no- 
tice on the foot of the title-page, or page next 
succeeding, in the January number the words 
"Copyright 1903 by Harper & Brothers," and 
in each succeeding number the words "Copy-,

[No. 1776] Feb. 10, 1906 



right 1904 by Harper & Brothers." On July 
26, 1904, complainant deposited the title of the 
book, "The Masquerader," with the Librarian 
of Congress, and on September 28, 1904, and 
not later than its first publication, it mailed 
the requisite copies to the librarian. The 
proper copyright notice was printed in every 
copy of "The Masquerader." 

No copyright notice of any description ap- 
peared in connection with either the serial 
publication in Blackwood's Magazine, or in 
its publication of "John Chilcote, M.P.," in 
book form. 

In 1905 one of the defendants purchased 
copies of the Blackwood edition of the book 
hi London, and brought them to Chicago. 
The defendants caused the book in this form 
to be printed from type set in Chicago, by the 
title of "John Chilcote, M.P., or, The Mas- 
queraders," and were proceeding to market it, 
when this was prevented by a temporary re- 
straining order in this suit. The question now 
is whether a like temoorary injunction shall 
be entered. It was admitted at the argument 
that defendants did not copy the book pub- 
lished by complainant, but used only the 
Blackwood edition. There are many verbal 
differences between the two, but it is the same 
ttory. 

The copyright laws, as amended by the In- 
ternational Act of 1891, which took effect by 
hs own terms, and partly by presidential 
proclamation, July 1, 1891, give any author, 
foreign or domestic, or any proprietor of any 
fcook, etc., the right to procure copyright, and 
thereupon have the sole liberty or monopoly 
of publication and sale, and of translation 
and dramatization. It is provided that the 
type shall be set and plates made in this 
country ; and importation of books not printed 
from such plates is prohibited. Provision is 
made for securing non-importation by fur- 
nishing lists of titles to the Treasury and 
Postmaster-General. 

Conditions precedent to securing copyright 
are a deposit of the title of the book or 
periodical with the Librarian of Congress, be- 
fore the day of first publication in the United 
States or any foreign country, and of two 
copies thereof not later than the day of first 
publication in this or foreign country. 

A condition subsequent is imposed, that no 
person shall sue for infringement of his copy- 
right unless he gives notice thereof by includ- 
ing a copyright notice in each copy published. 
A penalty is imposed for printing notice of a 
book not copyrighted, and its importation 
prohibited. 

Each number of a periodical shall be con- 
sidered as an independent publication, subject 
to the prescribed form of copyrighting. 

By the proclamation of July 1, 1891, it ap- 
pears that Great Britain permits the same 
rights to American citizens in that country as 
those here given. 

It is first insisted for defendants that Har- 
per & Brothers had no right to take out a 
copyright in their own names under the con- 
tract; or, if the copyright is valid, it is held 
in trust for the author. It is said that her 
rights could not be secured except by copy- 
right in her name ; that if the book be out of 



print her rights shall revert; that translation 
and dramatization are included in copyright, 
and as the contract reserves them the parties 
must have intended not to grant that power; 
and that the publication of an abridgment or 
other edition by the author would infringe 
complainant's copyright, so that provision of 
the contract is inconsistent with the grant of 
copyright power. 

But the contract expressly provides that the 
publishers shall secure their own and the au- 
thor's rights by copyright. Now it seems 
clear that the publishers' rights could not pos- 
sibly be secured except by copyrighting in 
their own names. If the copyright had been 
taken in the author's name any publication 
by her in Great Britain, in any form, omitting 
notice of copyright, would have destroyed, not 
secured, all of the publishers' rights. Such 
publication has just been held to destroy the 
copyright by Judge Kohlsaat in G. & C. Mer- 
riam Co. v. United Dictionary Co., U. S. Cir- 
cuit Court Northern District of Illinois, 
opinion filed December 18, 1905. The publi- 
cation of the work without copyright by 
Blackwood & Son shows that Harper & 
Brothers' rights would have been valueless 
with .the copyright in the author's name. 
Copyright in the names of the publishers was 
thus vital to their rights, and also fully pro- 
tected the rights of the author. That the con- 
tract is fairly so to be construed see Belford, 
Clarke & Co. v. Charles Scribner & Co., 144 
U. S. 488, Mifflin v. Dutton, 190 U. S. 259, and 
Pulte v. Derby, 5 McL. 328, Fed. Cas. 11465. 

While there is force in the grounds of con- 
struction urged by defendants' counsel, yet I 
think their interpretation would be destructive 
of all rights given to the publishers by the 
contract, and should not be sustained. 

It is further urged that the copyrighting of 
Harper's Bazar, as a magazine, without special 
copyright of the serial numbers of "The Mas- 
querader," was ineffectual within the decis- 
ions of the Supreme Court in Mifflin v. White 
and Mifflin v. Dutton, 100 U. S. 260, 265, 47 
L. Ed. 1040, 1043. These are the cases in- 
volving "The Professor at the Breakfast 
Table" and "The Minister's Wooing." The 
first ten parts of "The Professor" were pub- 
lished serially in the Atlantic Monthly with- 
out claim of copyright, and the remaining 
parts by a copyright notice covering the en- 
tire magazine, in the name of Ticknor & 
Fields, its publishers. Afterwards, Dr. 
Holmes, the author, published the work in 
book form, containing proper copyright notice 
in his own name. It appeared also that the 
author never authorized Ticknor & Fields to 
copyright in their own names. In the other 
case Mrs. Stowe, the author, gave to the pub- 
lishers of the Atlantic Monthy "the sole and 
exclusive right to publish the work in this 
country." They published the first ten num- 
bers without any copyright claim whatever. 
She then took proper steps to secure a copy- 
right in her own name, and published the 
novel in book form. Afterwards the pub- 
lishers brought out the remaining chapters 
with a copyright notice on the magazine as 
a whole, in their own names. It was held in 
the Circuit Court of Appeals that the author

669 



abandoned her copyright on the volume by- 
publishing such remaining chapters serially 
without proper notice of copyright. 

In the "Professor" case the Supreme Court 
held that Dr. Holmes never assigned the right 
to copyright the book, but only gave the right 
to print, publish and sell. The publishers were 
not authorized to copyright either in their 
own names or his. The fact that Dr. Holmes 
himself took out a copyright makes it appa- 
rent that the parties had no such intention. 
The copyright of the magazines containing the 
final chapters, together with the author's copy- 
right of the book, did not secure a valid copy- 
right, since the object of the notice is to warn 
the public against the republication of a cer- 
tain book by a certain author, and no person 
reading the two copyright notices would know 
that they related to the same work; on their 
face they would seem to cover a totally dif- 
ferent purpose. It was held that the entry 
of a book under title by the publishers cannot 
validate the entry of another book of a dif- 
ferent title by another person. 

A fair inference from this decision is that 
if the magazine copyright had been in the 
name of Dr. Holmes, the publication of the 
final chapters would have been protected ; but 
because the whole work was published se- 
rially without any lawful copyright notice 
whatever, the right to exclusive publication 
was lost. 

In the case of "The Minister's Wooing/' 
the final chapters were put out with a notice 
proper so far as the magazine itself was con- 
cerned, but by persons not authorized to copy- 
right the work; and this was done after Mrs. 
Stowe had published the whole book under 
proper copyright. As already stated, the ap- 
pellate court held the magazine publication to 
have been an abandonment. The Supreme 
Court held that so far as the first twenty-nine 
chapters were concerned, they, at least, be- 
came public property. Mrs. Stowe's copyright 
of the balance would have been valid if it had 
not afterwards appeared in the magazine. 
Mrs. Stowe not having given notice, in the 
succeeding numbers of the magazine, of her 
copyright, such publication vitiated it; the 
publishers' copyright not having given notice 
of the author's rights. 

In both cases the court expressed reluctance 
at being obliged to so decide, and we may well 
believe a different result would have followed 
if the magazine copyright had been taken ir. 
the authors' names. Besides, the court was 
construing the law of copyrights as it was in 
i860, and before the important amendments 
of 1891, hereafter referred to. 

The almost uniform practical construction 
of the copyright law has been to give notice 
in connection with each number of a maga- 
zine, and this has been often sustained. Drone 
on Copyright, 144. Howell's Annotated Stat- 
utes of Michigan was held copyrightable in 
Howell v. Miller, 91 Fed. 129, including all in 
the book which might fairly be deemed the 
result of the compiler's labors, Reports of 
judicial decisions, so far as head notes or 
other original matter is concerned. Callaghan 
v. Myers, 128 U. S. 617. Newspapers, Harper 
v. Shoppell, 26 Fed. 5*9, 28 Fed. 613. London 
Punch held copyrightable. Bradley v. Hatten. 



L. R., 8 Exch. 1. The provisions of the copy- 
right law are to be broadly and liberally con- 
strued to insure to the author the product of 
his brain. Jenkins, J., in Holmes v. Don- 
aghue, 77 Fed. 179. 

In Tribune Co. v. Associated Press, 116 
Fed. 126, the Chicago Tribune attempted to 
copyright, under contract, some special tele- 
graphic matter of the London Times, by de- 
positing in the Chicago post-office, on the 
evening before publication, the general title 
of the newspaper, with serial number and 
date, and by like deposit, immediately upon 
publication, of copies of the newspaper ; each 
addressed to the Librarian of Congress. It 
was held by Judge Seaman that it was at least 
questionable whether a copyright can thus be 
secured for a newspaper. But as the defend- 
ant did not copy from the Tribune, but direct- 
ly from the London Times after its publica- 
tion in England, and as the matter published 
by the Times and Tribune was not identical, 
there was no infringement, nor was any copy- 
right thus obtained. 

In England it was at first held that a news- 
paper was not a book or periodical in Cox v. 
Land & Water Journal Co., 39 L. J. Rep. 152, 
but the contrary was decided in Walter v. 
Howe, 50 L. J. Rep. 621, in Cate v. News- 
paper Co., 58 L. J. Rep. 288, and finally by the 
Court of Appeals in Trade Auxiliary Co. v. 
Protection Ass'n, 58 L. J. Rep. 293. 

Whatever may have been the true con- 
struction of former copyright acts, and 
whether or not a newspaper is entitled to 
copyright, I think the International Copy- 
right act of 1891 has set the question at rest 
so far as periodicals like Harper's Bazar are 
concerned. Section 11 of the act provides 
as follows: 

"Each number of a periodical shall be con- 
sidered as an independent publication, subject 
to the form of copyrighting as above." 26 
Stat. 1 165. 

The closing words evidently refer to the 
conditions prescribed for securing and retain- 
ing copyright, that is the deposit of title of 
the periodical, the two copies thereof, and the 
notice of copyright to be given on the title- 
page or page immediately following. If the 
notice of copyright is to be given in connec- 
tion with each separate article published in a 
magazine, and not once for all contained in 
it, the language used to prescribe the duty of 
giving notice is not well adapted to the ob- 
ject sought; for how is it possible to insert 
a notice on the title-page, not of a periodical, 
but of an article ? The latter may have a title, 
but hardly a title-page; while the former has 
both. 

Did the publication of the story in Black- 
wood's Magazine, both in Great Britain and 
the United States, or of the British edition of 
the book, all without notice of copyright, con- 
stitute a forfeiture or abandonment of com- 
plainant's copyright? 

This is purely a question of copyright, and 
not of the underlying literary property. Aban- 
donment, forfeiture, public dedication of the 
exclusive right of copy may be presented in 
several aspects: 

(1) Abandonment or public dedication by 
the owner of a limited domestic copyrig K * 



670 



The Publishers? Weekly. 



[No. 1776] Feb. 10, 1906 



(2) Acts of abandonment by the owner of 
foreign copyright; (3) Acts of abandonment 
by the owner of the remainder of the literary 
property left after the grant of limited do- 
mestic copyright, and which do not infringe 
on the latter; (4) Acts of the latter kind 
which do so infringe. 

I think that domestic copyright is forfeited 
or abandoned only in the first, and not in the 
other cases; and that this conclusion follows 
clearly from the copyright act of 1874, and 
from the decisions on abandonment. 

It is insisted by counsel for defendants that 
the acts of the author of abandonment, in the 
case here, by publishing in England and 
America without notice of copyright, were 
binding on Harper & Brothers, depriving 
them, without their own act, of their copy- 
right. It is so argued because the author 
could not confer upon Harper & Brothers any 
greater right than she herself possessed; and 
assuming that they had the power to copy- 
right in their own name, yet that right would 
be subject to all subsequent conditions im- 
posed upon the author. But the statute does 
not require the author to give the copyright 
notice. It provides that "No person shall 
maintain an action for the infringement of his 
copyright unless he shall give notice thereof 
by inserting in the several copies of every 
edition published," the form prescribed. It 
is the owner of the copyright who is to give 
the notice, and he must insert it in every copy 
published by himself. The statute did not at- 
tempt the impossible or impracticable by com- 
pelling him to insert the notice in other pub- 
lishers' editions, but only those controlled by 
himself. As said by the Supreme Court, in 
Thompson v. Hubbard, 131 U. S. 123 : "The 
plain declaration of the statute is that no per- 
son shall maintain an action for the infringe- 
ment of his copyright unless he shall give 
notice thereof by inserting the prescribed 
words in the several copies of every edi- 
tion published. This means every edition 
which he, as controlling the publication, pub- 
lishes." 

Harper & Brothers had no contral over the 
acts of Blackwood & Son, either in Scotland 
or the United States, and were ignorant of 
the publication in New York of the American 
edition of Blackwood. How could they aban- 
don their own copyright without their own 
volition? Forfeitures are strictly construed. 
It would be a harsh rule which would compel 
a publisher to insist in his contract with the 
author on having his own copyright notice 
inserted in every copy of the work published 
by all other persons. This might be highly 
impracticable, and difficult of execution. The 
statute should not be given such a construc- 
tion unless imperatively required by its lan- 
guage ; which, as we have seen, means nothing 
of the kind. 

In the case of G. & C. Merriam Co. v. 
United Dictionary Co., already cited, the 
owner of the copyright, after publishing the 
book in this country, took the plates to Eng- 
land and there printed and published addi- 
tional copies ; omitting, however, the notice of 
American copyright. Judge Kohlsaat very 
properly held this to be an abandonment of 
the copyright. 



To constitute abandonment there must be a 
clear, unequivocal and decisive act of the per- 
son entitled, showing a determination not to 
have the right relinquished. 1 Cyc, 5. 

Publication in a foreign country without 
the consent of the author is not an abandon- 
ment Boucicault v. Wood, 2 Biss. 34. Or 
without the consent of the owner of the ex- 
clusive right to publish in this country. Gold- 
mark v. Kreling, 35 Fed. 661. See also Hag- 
gard v. Waverly Pub. Co., cited in George H. 
Putnam's work on copyrights (U. S. C. C 
Diet. N. J.). American Press Ass'n v. Daily 
Story Pub. Co., 120 Fed. 766. The case of 
Werckmeister v. Am. Lith. Co., 117 Fed. 360, 
decides a contrary rule, but one which I 
think should not be followed. 

The publication in Blackwood's American 
edition seems to have been an infringement 
on Harper & Brothers, not an abandonment 
by them ; but it is not necessary to decide this 
point. 

It is further insisted that as it is admitted 
defendants' publication is not taken from com- 
plainant's book, but from the authorised Eng- 
lish edition, published without notice of copy- 
right, the case fails. This position is sup- 
ported by quotation from Drone on Copy- 
right, 399-400, and Johnson v. Donaldson, 3 
Fed. 22. The Chicago Tribune case is also 
in point here, since the defendant in that case 
received and published telegraphic dispatches 
from the London Times covering extracts 
from its columns; and it was held that the 
Tribune could not prevent this by copyright- 
ing its own paper, covering other extracts or 
articles from the Times. 

But I think the rule inapplicable to this 
case, because defendants did something ex- 
pressly prohibited by the copyright law. Sec- 
tion 4956, as added to in 1891, provided : 

"During the existence of such copyright the 
importation into the United States of any 
book so copyrighted, or any edition or edi- 
tions thereof, or any plates of the same, not 
made from type set . . . within the limits 
of the United States, shall be and it is hereby 
prohibited." 

Defendants did just what is here prohib- 
ited. They imported a substantial copy of 
"The Masquerader" not made from type set 
in this country. They are therefore within 
the condemnation of the law. They cannot 
be allowed to found legal rights on acts made 
unlawful by being prohibited. 

In the dictionary case above referred to, de- 
fendant imported the books, as did defend- 
ants here, but they were made from plates in 
this country. It did nothing prohibited, and 
was, with some reluctance on the part of the 
court, justified in so doing. 

On the question of prohibited importation 
a case of the bringing in of a piece of music 
published in Germany, and on which there 
was an English copyright, was presented in 
Pitts v. George & Co., 66 L. J. Ch. 1, 75 L. T. 
Rep. N. S. 320, where such importation was 
held unlawful. The international copyright 
act there in question was, however, quite dif- 
ferent from the American copyright law. 

The motion for temporary injunction should 
be granted. A. L. Sanborn, Judge.

TAX ON COMMERCIAL TRAVELLERS 
' IN CANADA. 

At a recent meeting of the Quebec Cabinet 
Premier Gouin and Provincial Treasurer Mc- 
Corkill, according to the Canadian Bookseller, 
stated to a joint delegation of the Montreal 
Board of Trade, La Chambre de Commerce, 
and the British Agents' Association, that the 
tax of $300 on non-resident commercial trav- 
ellers, representing houses having no place of 
business in Canada, would stand. The cabi- 
net contended that it protected the interests 
of business people in Quebec Province, and at 
the same time this tax provided revenue which 
they urgently needed. 

The Board of Trade was represented by 
George Caverhill. of Caverhill, Learmont & 
Co., while the Chamber of Commerce stated 
their objections to the tax through Messrs. 
Catelli and A. B. Roy. G. B. Fraser and 
Thomas Brophy outlined the views of the 
Wholesale Dry Goods Association, and R. 
Henderson and J. H. Shaw spoke for the 
British Agents' Association. The cabinet 
listened attentively to the recommendations 
of the deputation and their objections to the 
tax, stating that they would always be pleased 
to welcome suggestions. The deputation ex- 
pressed regret over the decision of the cabinet, 
but the strong pressure from every source is 
expected to result in at least a reduction of 
the tax or a restriction of it to the peddler 
whose operations affect the defenders of the 
tax more directly than do the visits of the 
commercial representatives of foreign manu- 
facturers.

BOOKTRADE ASSOCIATIONS. 
PITTSBURG BOOKSELLERS' AND STATION- 
ERS' ASSOCIATION ANNUAL DINNER. 

The Pittsburg Booksellers' and Station- 
ers' Association gave its seventh annual din- 
ner on the evening of January 23, in the hand- 
somely decorated dining room of the Union 
Club. H. Lee Mason, the president of the 
Association, who acted as chairman, in his 
opening remarks referred with much feeling 
to the late W. W. Waters, for many years 
manager of the Presbyterian Book Store, and 
then read the following resolution, which was 
unanimously adopted: 

"Rtsolved. That the Pittsburg Booksellers and 
Stationers' Association heartily indorse the senti- 
ments expressed by the New York Stationers! Asso- 
ciation, and will lend their earnest support toward 
correcting the abuses to which they refer. 

The after-dinner speaking was quite infor- 
mal, the following taking part: Robert S. 
Davis, Z. W. Barnard, of Cleveland, who ex- 
tended a cordial invitation to the dinner to be 
given by the Cleveland Stationers' Associa- 
tion, on March 13; the Rev. Joseph Horner, 
John L. Herring, George H. Alexander, Leo 
Henley, Ray Martin, of Syracuse; H. D. 
Burke, and Messrs. Clough and Bvin. A 
number of prominent members and guests 
were unavoidably absent, among them George 
Olney, L. E. Waterman, W. Millard Palmer, 
Harry F. Davis, the secretary, and A. W. 
McCloy, the vice-president, the latter two 
being detained by reason of illness. 
STATIONERS* BOARD OF TRADE ANNUAL 
DINNER. 

The Stationers' Board of Trade enjoyed 
itself pleasantly at dinner at the Waldorf- 
Astoria, New York, on the evening of the 
6th inst. There were present 123 members of 
the Board and their friends. Among the 
guests were the Hon. Herman A. Metz, 
Comptroller of Greater New York; the Hon. 
John S. Wise, Frank N. Doubleday, John B. 
Fay, former president of the Chicago Sta- 
tioners' Association ; the Rev. Lindsay Parker r 
of Brooklyn; William A. Prendergast, for- 
merly an officer of the Credit Men's Associa- 
tion ; Abner K. Pratt, president of the Boston 
Stationers' Association, and Theodore L. C 
Gerry, president of the New York Stationers* 
Association. H. C. Bainbridge, the president 
of the Board, in his address of welcome re- 
viewed briefly the successful work of the 
Board during the past year, and, in referring 
to the coming convention of the National As- 
sociation of Stationers in New York, called 
upon the members to give an expression of 
their opinion as to the most favorable time of 
the year in which the convention was to be 
held. It was the unanimous vote that the 
latter part of June or the early part of July 
would suit all concerned better than a late- 
date, when travellers are out of town and 
the manufacturers and retail dealers busy 
preparing for the fall trade. 

The Hon. John S. Wise led off the speech- 
making in one of his happy moods, giving 
advice to the Board how best to entertain the 
visiting members to the coming convention. 
Mr. Wise was followed by Comptroller Metz. 
who dwelt upon some of the difficulties of his

new position, and hoped that in his efforts to 
reform abuses he would have the support oi 
the business men of New York. The Rev. 
Lindsay Parker wound up a pleasant talk 
with some stirring remarks on the need of a 
more largely developed moral sense of the 
community, in which he was ably seconded 
by Mr. Prendergast. Mr. Doubleday spoke 
on the open or "free" shop, and Mr. Gerry 
brought the speechmaking to a close by call- 
ing upon all interested to begin now in mak- 
ing preparations for the convention of the 
National Association. 



OBITUARY NOTES. 

Dr.. George Ryerson Fowler, a voluminous 
writer on surgery, died in Albany, N. Y., oa 
February 6. Dr. Fowler was born in Brook- 
lyn, N. Y., December 25, 1843. His last work, 
""Fowler's Surgery," is now in press. 

The Rev. Dr. Edward Henry Perowne, 
Master of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge 
University, Eng., died on February 5, aged 
about seventy-eight. Among the publications 
of Dr. Perowne are "The Christian's Daily 
Life," "A Life of Faith," "Corporate Re- 
sponsibility," "The Godhead of Jesus" and 
"Savonarola," a Commentary on Galatians, 
etc. 

John Finneran, who for some years con- 
ducted a second-hand book business at 621 
Chestnut Street, in St. Louis, Mo., died in 
that city on January 28, aged fifty-five. Mr. 
Finneran was born in Ireland, and was in- 
tended for the priesthood, but his desire to 
travel brought him to this country about 
twenty years ago. After travelling about in the 
West and South for some time he settled in 
business, compromising on art. Finding St. 
Louis less resourceful as an "art center" than 
he was led to believe it was, he engaged in 
the sale of old books. His specialty was rare 
editions of the classics and English books, of 
which he left several thousand volumes'. Mr. 
Finneran had many friends among scholars, 
artists and booklovers who will miss his 
genial and eccentric presence — a man who 
would rather any time buy a book and talk 
about it than to sell it. It was like parting 
with dear old friends, he often said, when 
disposing of one of his treasures. 



BUSINESS NOTES. 
Baltimore, Md. — Goldsmith Bros., book- 
sellers and stationers, will open up, on March 1, 
in their new store at 26 East Baltimore Street. 
They were situated for fifteen years on Balti- 
more Street, below Calvert, when the great 
fire of two years ago destroyed that section of 
the city. Their new building is a three-story 
fireproof structure, built of concrete and steel, 
25 x 125 feet, and equipped with all improve- 
ments. Their shelving, showcases, counters 
and tables will be finished in Flemish oak, old 
mission style. Their show windows will be 
reshaped, providing an extra large lobby, 
which will give them better facilities for dis- 
play than an ordinary window. They will 
carry a complete stock of books and station- 
ery and will make a specialty of loose-leaf 



systems, card indexes and filing cabinets. 
They request the trade to send catalogues.

tion, retains an office at 156 Fifth Avenue, 
and will act as publishers' agent and probably

business at the old stand, at Sixth and Market 
Streets, has opened the Old Book Stall, at 
920 Locust Street. The old book stock of 
John Finneran, at 621 Chestnut Street, whose 
death is noted in another column, is now un- 
der the management of Mr. Taylor, who of- 
fers it intact to a quick purchaser. Mr. Taylor 
has also again come into possession of the 
American Magazine Exchange, and proposes 
to concentrate on back-number magazines if 
he can secure expert assistance.

LITERARY AND TRADE NOTES. 

The Arthur H. Clark Company an- 
nounces that its edition of "Magellan's Voy- 
ages Around the World" will be published in 
three instead of two volumes. 

Fox, Duffield & Company have a novel of 
originality and interest in "The Eternal 
Spring," by "Neith Boyce," the pseudonym 
of Mrs. Hutchins Hapgood, author of "The 
Forerunner" and "The Folly of Others." The 
scene of this new story is Italy. 

William S. Thompson, for the past four 
years with Harper & Brothers, as manager of 
their Rochester (N. Y.) and St. Louis (Mo.) 
offices, has assumed the managership of the 
subscription book department just started by 
the Thompson Publishing Company, of St 
Louis. 

Willum Drysdale, of Montreal who is 
well known in the Canadian booktrade, has 
been appointed appraiser of books, stationery 
and fancy goods in the Montreal custom 
house. Mr. Drysdale will sell his business at 
St. James and St. Catherine Streets, which he 
has conducted for many years, and devote 
himself to his official duties. 

Isaac Pitman & Sons will publish March 
20 "Isaac Pitman's Short Course in Short- 
hand," an entirely new exposition of the au- 
thor's system of phonography, arranged in 
forty fascinating lessons for use in business 
colleges, high schools and for self-instruction. 
The manuscript of the book has been seen by 
many experts and is pronounced simple, logi- 
cal and practical to a rare degree. 

Little, Brown & Co. will publish at once 
"Kenelm's Desire," by Hughes Cornell, the 
story of an Alaskan Indian adopted and edu- 
cated in a white family of British Columbia. 
It is claimed the author has a new theme, a 
new setting and a new hero whom he has ex- 
celled in delineating. A little later they will 
bring out "Called to the Field," by Lucy M. 
Thruston, a story of Virginia during the 
Civil War, said to be better than her "A Girl 
of Virginia." 

L. C. Page & Company will publish March 
1 "The Count at Harvard," by Rupert Sar- 
gent Holland, who tells the story of a young 
gentleman of fashion at the old university. 
He is not a foreigner, but supposed to be a 
composite picture of some of the authors own 
classmates. They have just ready the long- 
delayed novel by Morley Roberts, entitled 
"The Idlers," which was necessarily kept 
back owing to the advance orders which have 
demanded an extra large edition. 

Harper & Brothers have just ready 
"The Jeffersonian System," by Professor 
Edward Channing, which forms the twelfth 
volume of The American Nation series. The 
period covered is from 1801 to 181 1. They 
are just bringing out the Hillcrest edition of 
Mark Twain's complete works, in twenty- 
three volumes, with a biographical criticism 
of Mark Twain and his works by Brander 
Matthews. They have in preparation a new 



and enlarged edition of "The Mikado's Em- 
pire/' by William Elliot Griffis. 

William Abbatt, 281 Fourth Avenue, New 
York, has published a second edition of Jane 
Hodson's useful manual entitled "How to 
Become a Trained Nurse." The author was 
for some time directress of nurses at the 
State Hospital, Fountain Springs, Pa., and 
matron of the House of Relief, Hudson 
Street, New York, and gives in fullest detail 
all the information needed by those who wish 
to become trained nurses. Appended is a 
complete list of the various training schools 
in the United States and Canada. 

E. P. Dutton & Co. have this year a larger 
number of artistic novelties in valentines than 
they have ever shown before, including a 
number of mechanical surprises. Their line 
of Valentine post cards and telegrams and 
cablegrams are particularly attractive and 
clever. They have also added largely to their 
shaped valentines and to their very artistic 
though inexpensive lines. Altogther, this 
house has now accumulated a line from which 
a dealer might order blindfolded and yet be 
certain every time of drawing a prize for his 
constituents. 

The Unit Book Company, 334 Fourth 
Avenue, New York, announce the publication 
of a series of books known as The Letters 
and Addresses of American Statesmen. The 
first two issues, namely, "Letters and Ad- 
dresses of Abraham Lincoln" and "Letters 
and Addresses of Thomas Jefferson," have 
already appeared. The series is to be con- 
tinued until the letters and addresses of alt 
the most prominent and popular American 
statesmen have been included. Each volume 
is to be a unit book, and to be included in a 
general series, The Unit Books. 

The Century Co/s February issues will be 
new novels from two American writers, both 
of whom are known through their earlier 
works. Bertha Runkle's "The Helmet of 
Navarre" was a decided popular success; her 
new novel is entitled "The Truth About 
Tolna," and deals with the lighter side of 
New York life. In "The Dull Miss Arch- 
inard," "The Rescue," "The Confounding of 
Camelia" and "Paths of Judgment," Anne 
Douglas Sedgwick has proved herself a dra- 
matic and brilliant writer. Miss Sedgwick 
herself ranks her new book, "The Shadow of 
Life/' as the best work she has yet accom- 
plished. 

Herbert B. Turner & Co., Boston, an- 
nounce a story of the social life in the Euro- 
pean colony of Jerusalem, by Myriam Harry, 
entitled "The Conquest of Jerusalem," an 
Australian novel by Randolph Bedford, en- 
titled "The Snare of Strength," which pre- 
sents a succession of pictures of colonial life, 
in politics, among the struggling farmers of 
the back county of Australia, of prosperity in 
the wilderness and of the mining rushes ; also, 
"Enigmas of Psychical Research," by Pro- 
fessor James H. Hyslop, vice-president of the 
Society for Psychical Research, which deals 
with the supernormal in chapters on Crystal

Gazing, Telepathy, Dreams, Mediumistic Phe- 
nomena, Premonitions, Clairvoyance, etc. 

The J. B. Lippincott Company have in 
press for early publication a new novel of 
New York social life, by Edgar Saltus, en- 
titled "Vanity Square." It is a story of a 
rich young clubman deeply in love with his 
wife and whose love is equally returned. The 
husband comes home one day to find his wife 
and their child gone and no clue to their dis- 
appearance or their whereabouts. The love 
story in which this disappearance is involved, 
and which affords complications that make 
the mystery peculiarly baffling, is the most ex- 
traordinary and intensely interesting of Mr. 
Saltus's novels. At the same time the book 
has a literary quality which must at once 
gain the attention of all who care for the 
writing of good English. 

Fleming H. Revell Company announce the 
immediate publication of Torrey and Alex- 
ander's "How to Succeed in the Christian 
Life;" and new editions of their "How to 
Bring Men to Christ," and "The Bible and 
Its Christ" The Torrey and Alexander meet- 
ings now held in Toronto are said to hold 
the position once held by the famous revival 
meetings of Moody and Sankey. They have 
in preparation Wilfred Graham's "The Vis- 
ion at the Savoy," which marks out an ideal 
for the "neglected rich," something on the 
lines of the "People's Palace," outlined by 
Walter Besant in "All Sorts and Conditions 
of Men;" "The Forgotten Secret," by Dr. W. 
J. Dawson, persuaded by whom Edward Ever- 
ett Hale, Jr., forsook Unitarianism and was 
"converted" in a Methodist meeting house; 
and a new book by Hannah Whitall Smith 
intended to help people towards cheerful 
Christianity. The house reports Dillon Wal- 
lace's "The Lure of the Labrador Wild" al- 
ready in its sixth large edition. 

D. Appleton & Co. harve just ready "The 
Lake," by George Moore, who gives us far too 
seldom a successor to "Esther Waters," 
"Evelyn Inness" and the other works of his 
literary art which were so vehemently dis- 
cussed more than a decade ago. The scene is 
laid in Irish woods, and the story recounts 
the soul struggle of a young priest who finds 
the vows of his order and the rigorous prac- 
tices of his vocation incompatible with his in- 
dividuality and his temptations of soul and 
body. TTiey have also just brought out 
"The Great Refusal," by Maxwell Gray, 
whose "Silence of Dean Maitland" took an 
older generation by storm. This is a story 
of love sacrificed for an ideal and of a young 
man who learned by hard experience that 
economic laws are as immutable as laws of 
health, and that one man cannot overcome the 
laziness of a nation. At last he sails away 
from civilization to the coast of South Africa 
to found a modern Utopia, and he takes with 
him the woman that is fitted to he a help- 
mate in any land. 

Houghton, Mifflin & Co. will publish next 
week a volume entitled "What is Religion?" 
by President Henry S. Pritchett, of the Mas- 
sachusetts Institute of Technology. Mr. 



Pritchett has just been appointed president 
of the Carnegie foundation for the pensioning 
of the college professors. His new book con- 
tains five vigorous broad-minded addresses to- 
college students. They will publish at the 
same time "The Spirit of the Pines," a first 
novel, by Miss Margaret Morse. They wilt 
bring out in March a volume entitled "Lin- 
coln : Master of Men," which differs from any 
previous biography by aiming to concentrate 
the readers' attention on the one element in. 
Lincoln's personality which continually grows 
in significance as time goes by. This is his 
mastery over different types of men as well 
as over himself. The author, Alonzo Roths- 
child, has made a keen and brilliant study, 
with a surprising freshness of interest. Now 
that the centenary of the birth of Abraham 
Lincoln is but three years distant, there is 
renewed evidence of the popular interest in 
the great President. The farm in Kentucky 
where he was born is to be acquired by popu- 
lar subscription as a national park, and a 
character drama of his life will be reproduced 
in New York next month. 

The John Lane Company have just 
brought out a book of interest to designers 
and architects under the title "English Metal 
Work." This is a series of ninety-three draw- 
ings by William Twopeny, selected from a 
valuable but little-known collection in the 
British Museum, a series of thirteen folios 
with a number of smaller volumes by William; 
Twopeny containing drawings of architecture, 
furniture, wood work and iron work made- 
from buildings in various parts of England 
during the first half of the last century. They 
are made from the point of view of an enthu- 
siastic antiquarian with knowledge and dis- 
crimination. Their value as a record is there- 
fore great, and is increased by the fact that 
much which is recorded by them has since 
disappeared. Their value as drawings is also* 
considerable. They have the advantage over 
photographs, particularly in the case of metal 
work on buildings, in that they isolate the- 
object sufficiently and do not introduce into- 
the details a disturbing light and shade. In 
the present volume the publishers have chosen 
the most representative examples of Two- 
peny's work, believing these will be of service 
to those occupied and interested in the crafts. 
The plates comprise drawings of lead work, 
such as pipe heads, etc., cast iron work, and 
wrought iron work, such as fire dogs, grilles, 
vanes, hinge straps, knockers, locks, chests, 
door handles, key escutcheons, bar handles,, 
etc.
