half as many books eros titlea ac

the figures. Since then something like
half a million new books have been re

yearly number being now 4C,000. The

to reduce the cost- by issuing it to
ubicribers, and for a yearly subscrip

all the parta published in the year.
As the number of volumes Issued- an

while the subscription'' remained , tho
same, the price of each volume felfr
from the low sum of 4s. Rd. to 2k. 40..
