MAXIM 
GORKY 




For those who wish an understanding of Russia and to whom the drama of Russian 
life is a source of intensest interest, there is one writer who stands towering over 
Russian literature today, its undoubted master. This is Maxim Gorky ; and his 
writings stamp him as perhaps the one of all Russian writers who most completely 
depicts the reality of life in the icy, northern land. His career has been extra- 
ordinarily varied, a list of his occupations reads like the life history of one of his 
own fictional characters ; painter, peddler, scullery boy, gardener, watchman, baker's 
apprentice, revolutionary leader and writer of great novels! A man of the people; 
he depicts those suffering millions, ground beneath the cruel wheels of autocracy, 

yet with a spark of hope ever glowing and firing them 
to the century-long struggle for freedom of which 
Gorky himself has been a leader. His books are tense 
with the nervous horror of a down-trodden people, the 
characters displaying an amazing reality, human men 
and women in the grip of love, hate, greed, ambition, 
bravery, cowardice, poverty, disease. It is a whole 
world that Gorky depicts ; and every event in it, every 
twist of character is shown with a clarity and faithful- 
ness to exact detail that are unsurpassed. 



MOTHER is Maxim Gorky's greatest novel. In it he tells the 
story of a Russian Mother, whose love for her son transformed 
her into a valiant, irrepressible fighter for freedom. The book 
sums up the spirit of the struggle against the Czar's autocracy ; 
it is the perfect expression of the Russian will-to-freedom, 
which constantly was undermining the Imperial structure. An 
amazing novel, real as life itself, as thrilling and as moving. 
In it Russia stands forth in a flood of light. $2.00 net

Two Reasons for a 
HAPPY NEW YEAR 





SAINT TERESA 

Henry Sydnor Harrison 

Once again, and more emphatically than ever before, Mr. Harrison 
shows himself in SAINT TERESA not only a creator of unique 
plots but a master craftsman in the deftness, the artistry with which 
he handles his material. As a presentation of a very modern type 
of girl SAINT TERESA is fascinating, as a picture of modern 
business it is illuminating, as a study of the eternal conflict of the 
sexes, it is absorbing. But best of all it's a mighty fine story told 
as only Harrison could tell it and completely satisfying, from the 
first page to the last. $1.90. 

AFTER THE WAR 

London Paris Rome Athens Prague Vienna Budapest 
Bucharest Berlin Sofia Coblenz New York Washington 

Colonel Repington 

During the period covered by this continuation of his famous diary, 
Colonel Repington visited most of the capitals of Europe' and talked 
with the leading statesmen and men of affairs in each country. Add 
to this that it ends with a first-hand account of the Washington Con- 
ference and a description of American scenes and persons, written 
with all the frankness, the intimacy, the unreserve for which the 
author is famous, it will be seen that here, indeed, is a book that will 
be anxiously awaited, eagerly read, and widely discussed by the 
American public. $5.00.

THE vast forests and mighty ranges of the High Sierras form the

THE AMERICAN BOOK TRADE JOURNAL 
Founded by F. Leypoldt 

January 7, 1922 

"/ hold crcr\ man a debtor to his profession,

duty to endeavor themselves, by tray of amends, 
to be a help and ornament thereunto." BACON. 



Half Century Prospect 

THE PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY with this issue 
begins what its present conductors hope 
will prove a second half century of use- 
fulness, as its present editor, who has been 
at the helm for most of its years, records his 
hope that the successors of present chief and 
staff may hold to the same aims and ideals and 
win from a book -trade of vaster extent and 
prosperity, the appreciation for which the 
PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY gives thanks to its sup- 
porters thru the years past. 

In the twenty-five hundred issues of the 
past fifty years, aggregating one hundred 
thousand pages, the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY has 
sought in the development of successive years 
to give increasing service to the trade and 
help in the leadership toward greater useful- 
ness and larger prosperity and this aim it 
will continue to cherish in the earnest belief 
and sincere hope that the American book-trade 
iaces an era of service and prosperity far 
beyond its present attainments. The facts that 
the collections of all the public libraries in 
the country do not amount to one book per 
capita of our population and that the total 
production of books, Bibles included, from 
American presses does not reach one volume 
each year per capita, are sufficient evidence 
that the great field of book distribution has 
so far been harrowed rather than cultivated 
and that abundant margin of opportunity is 
still before us. 

A difficulty in the way of the sale of good 
books has been the amount of reading time 
claimed by the newspapers and other period- 
icals, especially by the popular weeklies and 
monthlies of wide circulation. Such reading 
should, nevertheless, be the bridge to reading 
of a more permanent character and to the 
sale of a larger number of books, provided 
American publishers are ready to do their 



part. That part must be done by studying 
the taste of the public, providing a literature 
which will meet and elevate that taste, issuing 
books in a style and at a reasonable price 
which will cause the supply to increase demand 
and pushing forward promotion work in be- 
half of book distribution in which the book- 
trade should cordially co-operate with and 
have the cordial co-operation of the libraries 
thruout the country. In the past few years 
notable advances have been made in this co- 
operation, altho the increased price of books, 
necessitated by the increased cost of printing 
and until recently of paper, has stood seriously 
in the way of the greater use of books. 

In this development of the future the PUB- 
LISHERS' WEEKLY hopes and plans to do its 
part. It recognizes that a trade journal must 
both follow and lead, in sympathy with pres- 
ent methods, and looking forward to a future 
of better methods and larger achievements. 
Those who thru its columns are doing what 
they can in this service will hope that when 
the labor of each comes to an end their suc- 
cessors at the end of the first century of the 
existence of the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY may 
have earned in larger proportion the apprecia- 
tion which the book-trade has increasingly 
shown for the efforts of the past. 



The College Text Book 
Problem 

AFIELD of book distribution that is 
important in its gross amount but dif- 
ferent in almost all its aspects from 
the general trade distribution is that of the 
college textbooks. These do not have just 
the same channels for selling as the grade 
books, which are in a large percentage of 
cases sold on state contract. There "is much 
more individuality in the colleges in their 
selection of texts ; aad the problem of pre- 
senting these texts and of getting smooth- 
running distribution after they are accepted 
is a difficult one. We print in this number 
a paper on this subject by Frederick D. Hart- 
man, a previous contributor, who feels that 
the dealer could take, to the advantage of all, 
a much more prominent part in the promo- 
tion plans in this field. Mr. Hartman's 
experience has been in Canada, and the 
PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY would welcome further 
discussion of this important problem.

1 . 1'. Dutton in His Ninrtx- 
Sccond Year 

Ol |) r.rmis ..[ the veteran E. P. Dntton 
will U- nl.nl to know iliat. with his 
l.Jrth.: ; lu- riiUT> n hS 

,,r. He is still in health and 
and with keen interest in affairs, tho 
with hcarintr somewhat and vision slightly im- 
paired. It still delights him to recall the 
olden times in the Broadway store at \\ash- 
itiKf>n I'lacr. where A. D. S. Randolph was 
ml the hook-trade in general was 
rontercd in the neighborhood, tho these old 
times are seen thru a vista of years which 
few men have known. He retains his old 
home at 24 West ;ist Street, within walking 
distance of the Fifth Avenue store which he 
still occasionally visits, and not long since he 
courteously opened the door as a youthful 
visitor of seventy-three departed and said 
good-bye with the cheerful word that he had 
told Mr. Macrae at luncheon that he had 
hegun to consider himself old but meant to 
start a reformation at once and not feel 
old any more. 

Mr. Macrae has had his residence with Mr. 
Dutton, while the daughter has been at col- 
nd the two Macrae boys have been mak- 
ing r< 'ke their places in the Dutton 
concern, to which one of them, John Macrae, 
Jr.. has come during the past year, while the 
younger boy, Elliott Beach Macrae, will take 
up his work in October, 1922. 

One of Mr. Dutton's most interesting remi- 
niscences is of the lad who nearly forty years 
ago came to him from Virginia. A naval 
officer living at Washington entered the store 
and asked if place could not be found there for 
a lad of his acquaintance who wanted to find 
opportunity in New York. Mr. Dutton saw 
no reason why he should look with favor upon 
a youth from so far away. The officer made 
a yearly visit to Xew York and came a sec- 
ond time to the Dutton store, but again re- 
ceived a negative reply. A third year he came 
again and snid that if the boy could be given 
a chance he would make good for the hoy's 
expense, if he did not make good for himself. 
Mr. Dutton yielded, and at eighteen young 
Macrae came into the Dutton employ under 
the immediate supervision of Charles A. Clapp, 
the junior partner. The lad frequently took 
a bundle of catalogs home with him at night. 
despite the renu.nstranre of the other juniors 
that the 'lay's work was ended. He told them 
that he wanted to learn all that he could about 
the stock and bookselling, and it came about 
that when Mr. CJapp wanted particulars about 
the stock it was to young Macrae that he 
always turned. There came sudden need for 
a traveler to make a western round, and when 
Macrae was piven the opportunity he made 
good by bringing in a bigger order than any 
of his predecessor^ Then came the need fo- 
<omeonr to make a journey across sea. and 
again it was youne Macrae who had won the 
chance. At once he made friends in London 
and was wlri-.med. not only to the offices, 'nit 



The Publishers' Weekly 

to the homes of London publishers and began 
to establish the relations abroad which have 
since flowered into so great a development 
for the Dutton house. 

Mr. Dutton feels that it was a special Provi- 
dence which sent the lad to him, for in these 
declining years if the adjective can be used 
. ,f a man still looking upward Mr. Macrae 
has been his mainstay as now the active head 
of the successful and vastly increased busi- 
ness of E. P. Dutton & Company, as well as 
a close personal friend. It is not always that 
such reward comes to a man for good deeds 
as has come to Mr. Dutton in this happy 
relationship. 

Photo-Engraving Lock-out 

THE agreement between the employers and 
employees in the photo-engraving field of 
New York came to an end on December 
3 1st, and, as no agreement had been reached for 
an extension of arrangements, the shops were 
closed and notices posted which shut down the 
work for about fifteen hundred men. The em- 
ployers insisted that a new arrangement must 
be made that provided for sortie lower scales of 
wage or an extension of the working week to 
forty-eight hours. The men contend that the 
present wage scale is fair and must be continued 
if they are to keep at work. The strike has 
affected only the commercial establishments, as 
the newspaper engravers are under another con- 
tract. The dispatches from Chicago from the 
officials of the Photo Engravers' Union say that 
they expect the lock-out will become general and 
that action similar to that in New York may 
be expected next week. 

It was in this industry in New York where 
the Union claimed for a time the right to set 
the price at which the employers should sell 
their product to the consumer. They did this on 
the argument that union men who want the best 
conditions could not afford to work in a shop 
that sold its product for less than a certain 
fixed figure and that therefore in the interest 
of their craft they had the right to dictate the 
price to consumers. Thlis situation, which would 
if carried into other industries have revolution- 
ized American industry, was made illegal by a 
bill passed in the last New York legislature. 

Shops now find that even with these discounts 
they cannot hold the business in New York un- 
der the present wage scale. The difficulty in 
handling business, they say, has been increased 
by the fact that the present wage scale of fifty 
dollars is increased in practice by the fact that 
members of the Union will not consent to work 
at this figure, and the shops claim that when 
they telephone for a man to Union headquarters 
the report is made that there are no men to 
work at the contract figure, as all are demand- 
ing more. This same reply is made, so the 
employers say, even tho it is welt known that 
well over a hundred men have been out of 
employment. 

Conferences are now in progress between the 
Photo Engravers' Board of Trade and the

The College Text Book Situation 

By Frederick Deane Hartman 



ii'T'HE most persistently and consistently 

I annoying source of perpetual unsatis- 

factonness 1 ever thought could exist," 

was the reply one college professor gave me 

in answer to my inquiry as to what he thought 

of the present methods of supplying college 

text books." 

"An infernal nuisance requiring continual 
attention lots of complaint and n9 money!" 
This is what the dealer who supplied the in- 
stitution with which the above mentioned pro- 
fessor was associated had to say of the situa- 
tion. 

"College text books ! I would give anything 
if we didn't have to publish them. There i-> 
more trouble and less money in that department 
of our business than in all of the rest of the 
departments put together." This came from 
the head of the publishing house which supplied 
the majority of the books used by the above 
mentioned dealer. 

I have given these quotations because they 
quite well represent the respective points of 
view held by the persons chiefly concerned in 
the college text book question. It should per- 
haps be added that probably the view expressed 
by this publisher is only held by those pub- 
lishers who do not specialize on educational 
publications and have relatively few college 
texts on their lists. 

W'ere this the situation with any other line 
of book publishing the line would be promptly 
dropped, but. of course, it is recognized that 
college text books are essential and must be 
supplied. The responsibility therefore prima- 
rily lies with the publishers to study the causes 
of all this dissatisfaction and do what may be 
possible to remedy the situation. 

The first point to come up for consideration 
is an analysis of the different methods of col- 
lege text book distribution now in vogue. 

(a) The most usual method of handling 
college texts is for some dealer, who specially 
caters to the student trade, to assume the re- 
sponsibility of keeping informed as to the books 
recommended for adoption in the various 
courses, and nlso assume some of the responsi- 
bilitv of introducing the publishers' new texts 
to the professors and securing new adoptions. 

(b) In a number of instances the institu- 
tional authorities appoint from one to three 
deserving and needy students for period? vary- 
ing from one to four years to handle this 
business. As a rule, the institution assumes 
responsibility for the accounts and keeps the 
records. The students, of course, must arrange 
to do all the work outside their study hours 
and their interest in the development of the 
business is only temporary. 

(c) In other instances an appointee is 
chosen by the institution who holds the position 
more or less permanently. Such a man is as- 
sured of all the institutional natronage and is 
Lruaranteed the co-operation of the professors. 



Such an appointee must, as a rule, supply his 
own financial backing. He feels himself to 
'be in a very independent position, for he is 
practically protected from any competition. 

(d) In the case of many smaller institu- 
tions, particularly those located in small com- 
munities, the institution itself does the pur- 
chasing of the texts and sells them to the stu- 
dents. 

(e) In a very few instances at the begin- 
ning of each term the publishers have a rep- 
resentative on hand who sells directly to the 
students their requirements. Between the rep- 
resentative's visits, the professors purchase 
direct any books needed. This method of prac- 
tice is now quite rare. 

(f) In many places there have been tried 
various forms of "Students' Co-operative 
Stores" in which the capital is drawn from 
the students, who purchase their tickets varying 
in cost from five to twenty dollars each. At 
the end of each academic year the students 
receive that share of the profits which the 
number of tickets to which they hold would 
entitle them. It may be added that due to 
inefficient management the rebates are usually 
microscopic. 

There are several other different methods in 
practice for handling college texts, but they 
are all more or less modifications of one of 
these already outlined. 

We shall now examine the manner in which 
these various methods work in actual practice. 
Let us start with the ease in which texts are 
distributed thru a retail dealer. Such a dealer 
may or may not be a lover of books with a 
sense of discrimination and literary discern- 
ment. Most generally he is not so that he 
does not find a very sympathetic listener when 
he goes to introduce new texts to a professor, 
and tries to procure new adoptions. It is hard 
to say whether it is better to have a dealer 
with literary tastes or not, for so frequently 
those who have prove a dismal failure as a 
business executive. At any rate, a combina- 
tion of business ability and keen literarv dis- 
cernment is exceedingly rare. This dealer 
whom we are describing handles the publica- 
tions of a dozen or more publishers. As a 
rule, he does all the buying himself. He car- 
ries a broad stock, including countless station- 
ery items, and makes a strong play for general 
trade to supplement the very seasonal college 
text business. He is the direct recioient of all 
complaints of the students which chiefly refer 
to the cost of the books. An average student 
unhesitatingly brands as a robber anyone 
charging over two dollars for a book. The 
dealer is very apt to become guided in his 
recommendations to professors by the retail 
price and thus frequently urges the adoption 
of a very inferior book, thus arousing the sus- 
picion of the professor, who feels there must 
be some graft in the air, and promptly loses 



i8 

confidence in the dealer altogether. This ten- 
dency towards a suspicious attitude toward the 
dealer by professors is further fostered by 
the tact that the dealer must charge professors 
hill list price lor books, whereas the professors 
iiml that 1>> communicating direct with the 
publishers they either get the desired books 
free or, at least less, at a 20 per cent discount. 
The dealer docs not maintain a staff whicli 
will permit him to give good educational serv- 
ice. It is quite common for dealers to accept 
order- tin- name of the publisher of 

which they do not know. If the firm receiving 
this order does not pick it up for the dealer, 
then the matter usually is dropped, and unless 
the customer placing the order does not inquire 
he will never hear of the matter again. 

In the cases in which text book business s 
handled by students appointed by the institu- 
tional authorities the objections cited in the 
case of the ordinary dealer all hold the more 
strongly, as such appointees have only a tempo- 
rary interest in the business and are very re- 
stricted in the amount of time they have avail- 
able. 

When a permanent appointment is made by 
the institution the greatest trouble arises from 
the appointee's sense of security in his posi- 
tion. He does not feel the necessity of learning 
far enough in advance the requirements of the 
classes. He knows that if one book is not 
available when the time comes another 
will be used, and in either case they will be 
supplied thru him. In short, he places the 
entire responsibility upon the publisher of keep- 
ing a stock of all the books listed bound up 
and ready for shipment. The publishers, how- 
ever, have taken rather a broader view of the 
situation, and in order to keep the costs of 
texts down have tried to anticipate the exact 
requirements and not have the expense of enor- 
mous stocks in their warehouses. 

The remaining instances cited under para- 
graphs "d," "e," and "f" are so closely related 
to the preceding case, in so far as their objec- 
tionable features are concerned, that we need 
not find it necessary to repeat. 

The whole difficulty lies in the fact that in 
the rapid development of the universities, pub- 
lishing houses, and dealers each has considered 
its own problems alone without giving proper 
consideration to the requirements and develop- 
ment of the other. 

With the great increase in the number of 
elective r<>iir-rs in the college and university 
came, of course, the demand for many more 
and more varied texts. In order to meet this 
demand the publishers necessarily had to make 
provision to stnclv the situation and also create 
a department to cover the field. With the 
creation of a new course at n university ami 
the necessity of a suitable text being supplied, 
a publisher undertakes the responsibility. He 
must, in order not to lose money, get the book 
into use elsewhere and originally put it up to 
the dealer. Tn this reeard it must be said 
that it would seem that many dealers have 
hwi rather short-sighted, for it can be truth- 
fully stated that rrry T rry few are the college 
textual adoptions procured as a result of anv 



The Publishers' Weekly 

dealer's efforts. In the first place, as before 
stated, the dealer may not be fitted for such 
work not have the time, etc. At any rate, 
the promotion work has been left entirely to 
the publisher who does his work thru the 
college professors. It is, of course, out of the 
question to expect a college professor to buy 
every book he may consider for use he is 
accordingly presented with a copy. This prac- 
tice is a great source of annoyance to most 
dealers, who cannot see that in reality the 
professors are the salesmen for college texts 
and the more that is done to get texts into the 
hands of professors the greater is bound to be 
the demand for those books. 

Coincident with the growth of the dealers' 
disapproval of this attitude of publishers to- 
wards college professors has been the growth 
of the attitude on the part of dealers that all 
promotion work and responsibility for the crea- 
tion of demand for all books shall rest with the 
publisher. The publishers have more or less 
come to recognize this as the case and accepted 
the situation. This necessitates the publishers 
carrying a staff capable of handling this work 
and the reason there still exists so much dis- 
satisfaction is because the publishers do not 
assume full reponsibility for the college text 
service, as the retailer maintains more or less 
the attitude that his territory is being en- 
croached upon. The very fact that most of 
the publicity on texts goes out directly from 
the publisher tends to make the professors 
forget the dealer's place in the general book 
distribution. 

There can be, it seems to me, two general 
solutions. One would be very difficult to ac- 
complish and mean a very radical change, 
namely, to have the retailers take over the 
educational promotion of all the publishers. 
To bear this additional expense they would, of 
course, have to procure the books at much 
lower rates, for in the present situation it is 
very difficult for the dealer to net much, if 
anything, on the strictly educational lines. 

The more practical plan for improving the 
situation would be to have an understanding 
with the professors and dealers that the service 
on college texts should come exclusively thru 
the educational department of the publishers, 
who would do all the work of getting the in- 
formation on future requirements, securing new 
adoptions, etc. When the educational depart- 
ment received the information relative to texts 
to be used, etc., the matter could be referred 
to the respective dealer and the stock for- 
warded. It may be objected that this is vir- 
tually the present practice, but that is not 
true, because the final word in the matter of 
adoption is left with the professor to give the 
dealer. The professors are inclined to neglect 
this until rather late, as thev know the dealer 
is always available and can be seen any time 
or else they think the publisher will see the 
dealer, etc. The one sure thins: is that con- 
fusion results. Tn my proposed suggestion it 
would be necessary first to make clear to pro- 
fessors the real necessity of the publisher beini? 
in constant possession of the nroeress of the 
college courses and knowing long in advance 



January 7, 1922 



the book to be recommended and so far as 
possible the number required. It is true that 
publishers are inclined to forget that a pro- 
fessor cannot tell exactly how many pupils 
will elect a given course or, even so, how many 
of these will be supplied with second-hand 
texts. However, by co-operation the require- 
ments can be pretty well approximated. In 
this plan the dealer would be absolutely re- 
lieved of any responsibilitv of getting adoptions 
or anticipating requirements. As to the actual 
method in which the publishers and professors 
should carry on their co-operation, it would seem 
that matters would be expedited if each college 
department gave a monthly report of the texts 
used in the various courses, the reference books 



recommended, the relative satisfaction of books 
used, new recommendations and the number of 
students in the course. 

True, this requires considerable time to be 
given by the professors, but their co-operation 
could unquestionably be procured if It were 
made clear to them that such effort would 
result in better service and cheaper books. 

The publishers in the possession of such in- 
formation could have no excuse for not being 
prepared and the dealer could have no com- 
plaint against the commission on educational 
books, with all the responsibility removed. It 
would, in effect, amount to their receiving the 
books on consignment. 



Copyright Discussion 



THE mid-winter meetings of the American 
Library Association with important action 
by the Council met at Chicago* on Decem- 
ber 2O.th, 3Oth and 3ist. Two resolutions of- 
fered, with consequent discussion and decision, 
were of special interest to the book-trade, that 
on library revenues and that on copyright legis- 
lation. The special committee on library rev- 
enues, with Samuel H. Ranck, librarian of 
Grand Rapids, as Chairman, brought in a reso- 
lution containing recommendations in regard to 
a better standard of library appropriations, put- 
ting the weight of the Association's opinion 
back of a plan advocating at least one dollar 
per capita for any community that wanted ade- 
quate service. After some discussion as to 
whether one dollar per capita would be suit- 
able service for both large and small communi- 
ties, the resolution was passed in the following 
form: 

Submitted by Samuel H. Ranck, Chairman. 

"The American Library Association believes 
that $i per capita, of the population of the 
commiunity served, is a reasonable minimum 
annual revenue for the library in communities 
desiring to maintain a good modern public 
library system with trained librarians. This 
sum should cover a main library with reading 
room facilities, branch libraries and reading 
rooms within easy reach o*f all the people, a 
registration of card holders equal to at least 
thirty per cent of the population, and a con- 
siderable collection of the more expensive 
books of reference, with a home use of about 
five volumes per capita. This allowance of per 
capita revenue may need modification in the 
case of the very small or very large communi- 
ties, or which are otherwise exceptional. Small 
communities may often obtain increased library 
service for the same money per capita by en- 
larging the area of administration. The situa- 
tion in large communities is often modified .by 
the presence of good endowed libraries free for 
public use. Communities desiring their libra- 
ries to supply these needs extensively and with 
the highest grade of trained service, will find 
it necessary to provide a support much larger 
than the minimum of $i per capita. This 



should cover extension work sufficient to bring 
home to the children, the foreign-speaking peo- 
ple, business men, artisans, advanced students, 
public officials, and in general all classes of the 
people, the opportunities that such a library is 
not only ready but is able to afford, with a 
service that is administered by trained libra- 
rians having special knowledge in their par- 
ticular departments. 

"The Committee recommends that further 
study be given to the whole subject of adequate 
support for high school and grade school libra- 
ries, and for college and university libraries, 
to be based on a knowledge of the existing 
situation with reference to such libraries." 

The copyright situation was given discussion 
based on a resolution presented by Dr. M. 
Llewellyn Raney, Librarian of Johns Hopkins 
University, and Chairman of the A. L. A. 
Committee on Book Buying. This resolution 
takes issue with the Bill which is about to be 
introduced in Congress. Frederic G. Melcher 
represented the publishers in the discussion and 
argued for the Bill as drawn. All agreed that 
the United States should be a member of the 
Berne Convention, but the Bill provides that 
American publishers shall have full rights to 
the American market on any foreign book which 
they contract for, and the librarians are against 
any feature that will prevent them from buy- 
ing any book in any market. The resolution as 
drafted and printed below was carried, and 
the discussion will be carried before the Con- 
gressional Committee. 

Resolution Offered by Dr. Raney. 

"Whereas, The Authors' League of America 
proposes national legislation, including repeal 
of the so-called 'manufacturing clause' in the 
present copyright law, in order to pave the way 
for the United States' entry into the Interna- 
tional Copyright Union; and 

"Whereas, The American Publishers' Copy- 
right League (now the Bureau of Copyright 
of the National Association of Book Publish- 
ers) went on official record at its last session 
as supporting such legislation only on condi- 
tion that libraries and persons be prohibited by

it r,-j<>/7v</, That the Council of the 

Amcr sociation records its pleas-

formality, tin- international protec-

"l\,-.>l:ni. further. That the Council reaffirm, 

.itii-n's wonted disapproval 



of any measure that would curtail or cancel 
the existing privileges of importation, support- 
id, as they are, by American precedent and 
violative neither of the Federal Constitution 
nor of foreign practice; 

"Resolved, That the Committee on Book Buy- 
ing and that on Federal and State Relations be 
and are hereby Instructed to take every proper 
and feasible measure toward rendering these 
resolutions as effective as possible." 



Talk to Booksellers 



EMU. HtlKEL, the Western representa- 
tive MI I). Applcton & Co., recently spoke 
U i.. re the J. K. Gill class in bookselling, 
and cxc-rpt> irm the talk were printed in The 
Hi-ll',;-kly dill-o-draiii. We reprint the ex- 
tracts hrre :

of the community according to financial sheets 
A At or you are not filling your logical posi- 
\rc \ou satisfied in knowing this? Are 
you making a sericnis attempt to supply the 
nerds, also the wants, of your community? 

"The J. K. Gill Co. has been known for 
years as a place \\ here books are bought and 
sold no doubt founded on honesty and probity, 
otherwise the business could not endure and 
flourish. Are you in your individual work 
simply trading on your employer's honesty and

men. women and children along the paths of

ployer as he is with you. Are yon delivering 
daily or just getting by? Let us consider a 
few minutes 'How'! 

"I remember an incident which occurred 
v>m<- time ago. Swift, the author of 'Psy- 
chology' anil 'Daxs Work.' was drawing me 
out alonir my line. 'Selling.' and I said, '1 im-

I replied. 'No, but it is fundamental.'

fhrv are regular bookbuyers you are on 



the scales and are being weighed. If not, the*, 
may be fearful of this high-brow place. And 
it all depends, on your attitude toward the 
seeker alter knowledge what you impart 
what air or tone you take. Have you one 
approach for society people and another for 
the toiler? If so, why? Do you feel it neces- 
sary in selling fiction or literature. 1 mean 
anything not founded on the exact science, to 
have an opinion and back your opinion by sell- 
ing or ignoring the book or books in question? 
If so, what is the value of your opinion hi 
dollars and cents to your employer, who has 
bis money invested? Every book purchased 
by your firm must have passed a test 'of the 
publisher and his advertisers' and of 'the head 
of your department,' that should be all that 
is necessary for you who act as distributing 
agent. If you are interested in a book for any 
reason naturally it is easier for you to en- 
thuse and, as we say, 'Hand it out,' but what 
about the other nine or nine and ninety? 

"Make an honest effort to see why it is pub- 
lished. You are not the judge of the picture, 
but the picture is the judge of you. Apply 
that to your book. 

"And then when you reach that wonderful, 
glorious and most enviable position that yon 
can fit the book to the man, you will say with 
pardonable pride: 'I have arrived.' 

"In dealing with your people after they have 
bought what they came in for you must sell 
them something else to be of any value to your 
firm, and to do that you must know your stock 
and remember the fundamentals : 

Attract attention, 
Arouse interest, 
Create desire, 
Incite action. 

"How shall yon know your stock or become - 
acquainted with it? Study. 

"Read your trade papers, read reviews- 
assimilate one thought that you will always 
connect with that book. Take a moment when 
dusting or arranging stock to familiarize your- 
self with at least one statement made by the 
publisher on the flap of the cover and make 
that your sub-title. 

"Do not make the mistake of recommending 
too many so that your client is unable to see 
the wood for the trees. Yon have in the be- 
ginning the confidence of the purchaser, a

valuable asset! Merit that confidence. He 
comes to you because he thinks you know. 
Live up to it. 

"Is it not true, that the public judge you 
by your ability to help them? What a help 
you can be by knowing or even suggesting 
what a potential power for good your book- 
store is in the community and you the indi- 
vidual to make it so. Many judge the city 
by the bookstore. Many consider the book- 
store a civic institution and point to the book- 
store with pride. J. K. Gill Co. is known 
favorably or otherwise by the individual who 
comes in contact with the public; therefore. 
it behooves you to give the best that is in you 
so that the public will be pleased and helped 
by your individual efforts."

Zona Gale Predicts the Novel 
of Tomorrow 

'' I "HE chief course of the novel of tcnnor- 

1 row is to uncover commonplace beauty, as 
today it is uncovering cc/mmonplace ugliness," 
said Miss Zona Gale, the author of "Miss Lulu 
Bett," in a talk Sunday evening at Unity Fo- 
rum. Montclair, New Jersey. 

"Criticism of the new American novel often 
amounts to a dislike of the book because it is 
not about pleasant people. The person who 
dc/es not like a book because he would not 
like the people is to be classed with the de- 
votee of the motion picture or the barrel or- 
gan for I purposely link those two. 

"The hope of the novel today is to see the 
least attractive thing. To hate the sinner has 
been the old order ; while to hate the sin and 
to love the sinner is the word of tomorrow. 
The custom of the ncA-elist is to pick out a 
single, noble, fallen soul and to idealize him. 
The men of the new fiction contend chiefly in 
commonplace circumstances and do not always 
win. 

"Recognition of the value of the common- 
place and a tardy turning to native sources ai 
supply are characteristics of the present day 
novel. The malady of the American novel is 
the lack of beauty as a force. 

"Our novels are scattered over with beauti- 
ful passages, but the warp and woof of beauty 
we do not weave. This is the whole reason for 
the novel today to look for ugliness and hate 
it ; tomorrow to look for beauty and find it."

A RENEWAL of the Thrift Week cam-

several years, is to begin on January I7th, 
Franklin's birthday. In this connection, the 
American Library Association has published an 
excellent little annotated reading list entitled 
"Books and Thrift," edited 'by Ruth G. 
Nichols, Librarian of the Federal Reserve 
Bank, Chicago. This 8-page booklet can be 
purchased by booksellers or libraries at the 
rate of $3 per 100 or 30 copies for $i. 

Bookselling in Kilts 

IT is a dull day nowadays that does not see 
a new bookshop started. C. F. B'. tells us 
that Newark now has a bookstore since Bill 
Rankin, an Amherst man, has started one at 
174 Washington Street. And then we hear 
that Old Hector MacQuarrie, the Laird of 
Ulva, has started a bookshop at 27 University 
Place. That interests us greatly, because Hec- 
tor, himself a Caledonian of magnificent lin- 
eage and astoundingly agreeable disposition, 
says he proposes to conduct his bookshop on 
the Scots plan. He promises to wear kilts 
every Friday; to keep a tame haggis on the 
premises ; and to speak the Gaelic for any cus- 
tomer who makes a cash purchase of over $5. 
We have heard of bookselling being a cult; 
now it is also a kilt.

An Uncotrected 




The presidency of the plot tellers' club 
goes without contest to Mrs. Sparrow. "Do 
you really think the countess killed him?" she 
remarks, as her husband reaches the pithy part 
of the mystery story. "Oh, dear, I am dying 
to. tell you. It doesn't come out at all as 
you expect it to. You've guessed, of course, 
that the ivory box hasn't got anything to do 
with the murder. Have they caught the one- 
eyed man jet? There. I shouldn't have told 
you, but he did it revenge, don't you see? But 
mercy, I mustn't give the plot away!" 




When Mr. Stillwater begins a book he 
never knows when he is going to finish it, if 
ever. There are so many uses to which his 
family can put a stray book to hold the door 
back, to press flowers in, to set the baby on at 
dinner that he really ought not to expect to 
find it where he left it. We show the nightly 
search under way, just as Mrs. Stillwater re- 
members that the book is serving in place of a 
caster under the 'baby's crib and that therefore 
it can't possibly be touched until morning. 

GLUYAS WILLIAMS in the New York Times. 

Mistress '"Can you tell me ho'w it is, Jane, 
that whenever I come to the kitchen T find you 
reading?"

'eels you wear, Ma'am!" From Punch Draw- 
ings by F. H. Townsend (Stokes). 



Why Read History? 

AC. McLAUGHLIN, of the University of 
Chicago, in a review of "The Chronicles 
of America" issued by the Yale University 
Press, made this plea for the reading of his- 
tory in the New York Post Literary Review: 
"To say that if the people of a nation are 
to manage its affairs and determine its poli- 
cies they should know something of its his- 
tory is simply to say that they must know 
its character. For how is character disclosed 
except by conduct? The saying is so trite 
it is almost valueless and has long gone un- 
heeded. It is high time that some attention 
be paid to it. Those, moreover, who are fran- 
tically fearful of new nostrums and of vio- 
lent convulsions in the body politic may be 
urged to read history. It is quieting to the 
nerves ; it soothes without depressing, but it 
also clears the vision. It is good for the radical 
and the revolutionist, too, because he gets some 
idea of how steadily society has mdved on 
from stage to stage and how the past has in- 
sisted on reproducing itself often in a new 
disguise. The violent reformer will be less 
ready to husband and fondle his pet cure-alls ; 
lie will find, if he thoughtfully reads, that the 
one thing we can't be rid of is the past; 
it not only dogs our footsteps, but we meet 
it face to face at the next turn of the road ; 
and it simply will not 'be fashioned over irr 
accord with the dictates of a formula. His- 
tory reading is a wholesome diet for the con- 
servative, for he will discover that, while the 
past cannot be destroyed, it cannot be pre- 
served unaltered. The historical minded mart 
is sure of one thing : the social order is going 
to change : for better or for worse change is 
coming; life is a series of accommodations 
and readjustments. The reader of history 
finds that while a generation of men are anx- 
iously attentive to what appears to be the 
conspicuous tendency of their day there is and 
lias been an unseen current carrying them 
towards a condition they have not dreamed of. 
He will probably find that no generation quite 
knows itself, because its deeper significance 
can be comprehended only when one sees its 
product, and the product is only fully dis- 
closed bv the next generation or succeeding 
stage. The impatient radical and the choleric 
conservative may, if they will, from history 
learn modesty, and may each gather respect 
for the opinion of the other. One of the try- 
ing and disturbing manifestations of modern 
American' life is the mental immobility of 
the conservative, for conservatism so easily 
becomes obstinacy, and obstinacy begets intol- 
erance, and intolerance makes fellowship and 
understanding impossible, and misunderstand- 
ing foments quarrels. Whether we like it or 
not, changes are going to come. Let the im- 
mobile minded man read history; he is likely 
to find, if it be real history, that he will be 
inclined not simply to watch the wake of the 
vessel, but to peer ahead to see whither the 
next turn of the wheel mav take him."

Women and Bookselling 

A Monthly Department of News and Theory Edited by Virginia Smith Cowpcr 



Gl-AKjK Madden Martin (Mrs. Attwood 
K. Martin), whose new novel, "March 
( )n" was recently published by Appleton, 
is now associate editor of The Woman Citizen, 
in which slu- is associated with Mrs. Gary 
Thomas, Mary Garrett Hay and Dorothy Can- 
ficl.l Fisher. 



of the new and interesting book depart- 
ments which has been started within the last 
two months is that of James A. Hearn, West 
141!) Street, New York. This department is 
located on the fourth floor, and is combined with 
the Gift Shop. 

The books are arranged in racks at the sides 
oi the room, with tables directly in front of 
them, while the centre of the floor is given over 
.Hoiis types of merchandise suitable for 
presents. All classes of literature are included 
in the stock, a large portion of which is given 
over to religious books and articles. Children's 
books are given a prominent place, and they 
a wide variety of titles. This new depart- 
ment is in charge of Miss Grady, whose name 
is a new one to the 'book-trade, but who is, from 
the appearance of the denartment, going to 
accomplish things worth while. 



Marion Cutter, the proprietor of the Chil- 
dren's Book Shop, 5 West 47th Street, is a 
contributor to the Sunday book page of the New 
York Tribune, writing on the subject of new 
books for children. Her column is given one 
of the most prominent places, and includes both 
chatty criticism and suggestions to parents for 
book selection. Miss Cutter has recently been 
elected First Vice-President of the Women's 
N'ational Book Association. 



The regular monthly meeting of the Women's 
National Book Association will be held at the 
Children's Book Shop on the evening of Janu- 
ary 10. h is requested by the new president, 
Belle M. Walker, that as many members as 
]K>ssiblc attend, as there will be many things 
of interest discussed, among which is the pro- 
posed reduction of yearly dues from $6 to $3. 
the business mentioned, there will be 
present two authors, who will address the mem- 
bers. 

IM.m> are already under way for the annual 
<Vinncr, and the heads of the committees are as 
folio-.'

rich and Sophie Kerr Underwood; Dinner:

A new venture in the world of books has 
been launched at 2255 Broadway, New York, 
in the form of a Catholic circulating library, 
which includes books for the old as well as 
the young. The books have been very carefully 
selected, and include works bv Catholic and 
non-Catholic writers. Beatrice Ridder is in 
charge, and her catalog will include the best 
of recent books, together with titles in his- 
tory, biography, science, travel, etc., by writers 
of yesterday and to-day. The works of Joyce 
Kilmer, Canon Sheehan, Maurice Francis 
Kagan, John Ayscough for adults have been 
chosen, together with stories of Zane Grey, 
Eleanor Porter, Louisa M. Alcott and Thorn- 
ton Burgess for the younger set. 

Miss Rlidder has tried to keep in mind, wh'ile 
making selections, the advice of a celebrated 
man to his son : "Keep good company or none." 
There is also a plan on foot to foster the book- 
owning habit, and books may be bought from 
the library as well as borrowed. If one does 
not wish to buy a new book, those which have 
seen a reasonable amount of service, may be 
purchased for a small sum. 



The book store of Gimbel Brothers, New 
York, jn charge of Alice Dempsey, enjoyed an 
old-time Christmas "rush" in all sections of 
the department. This was especially true of 
the Juvenile section, which this Christmas 
reaped a harvest from Children's Book Week. 
Miss Dempsey had two authors in her depart- 
ment on alternate days of that week, who held 
story-telling periods. They were David Cory, 
whose "Puss in Boots, jr." stories are popular 
among children and Howard Garis, who told 
all about Uncle Wlggeley. 



The Little Bookstore in East Sixtieth Street, 
New York, has an attractive correspondence 
card that gives a personal touch to all the no- 
tices that go put. This card is 4% x $ l / 2 and 
has a decorative border with the name and ad- 
dress of the shop in a scroll across the top. 
There is a good sized writing space, and it can 
be mailed at the one cent postage rate. This 
forms a very effective way of notifying people 
about lxx>ks that have come to hand which 
should be of spedial interest to them. 



Sara Teasdale is at work on an anthology 
of poems for children, to.be called "Rainbow 
Gold." The book will be illustrated by Dugald 
Stewart Walker and will be brought out next 
year by the Macmillan Company. Miss Teas- 
dale will include about seventy poems from 
Chaucer to Robert Frost.

Obituary Notes 

LEMUEL W. BANGS 

LEMUEL VV. BANGS for many years resident 
representative of Charles Scribner's Sons in 
England, died at his home in London on Decem- 
ber 1 5th. Mr. Bangs, who was born in New 
York in 1840, was related to the well-known 
family of auctioneers of literary property. His 
uncle, Lemuel Bangs was the original Bangs 
of the house of Bangs, Merwiin & Company. In 
early manhood he entered the employ of the 
Scribner house and in the course of time be- 
came manager of the foreign department which 
in those days was conducted as a separate busi- 
ness under the name of Scribner & Welford. 
When Mr. Welford, the resident London agent, 
died in 1885, Mr. Bangs became his successor 
and was permanently stationed there ever since. 
His knowledge of books and of publishing con- 
ditions was remarkable, and in addition to the 
regular importing business of the firm many im- 
portant finds and purchases of literary rare- 
ties have distinguished his work. In his long 
London residence he made a host of friends 
and was a well-known figure in publishing 
circles. He was one of the comparatively few 
American members of the Garrick Club. 

Scrantom, Wetmore & Company 
Becomes * 'Scrantom' s Inc." 

THE business of Scrantom, Wetmore & 
Company, Rochester, N. Y., has just been 
reorganized and hereafter will take the name 
of "Scrantom's, Incorporated." 

Albert C. Walker and Joshua T. Gorsline 
recently purchased the interest of Lansing G. 
Wetmore in the partnership and incorporated 
the business, associating with them as stock- 
holders Edward H. Walker, manager of the 
social stationery and engraving shops ; Harry 
A. Tompkins, manager of the commercial 
stores, and Frank A. Davis, assistant man- 
ager; Howard L. Peak, manager of the whole- 
sale department; D. Karl Medcalf, manager 
of the book store. Louis G. LaBorie, manager 
of the sporting goods and toy shop, and Ernest 
E. Gorsline general manager. 

The Board of Directors of the corporation 
will consist of Albert C. Walker, president: 
Joshua T. Gorsline, treasurer: Edward H. 
Walker, Harry A. Tompkins and Ernest E. 
Gorsline. 

The business was organized in May, 1868. 
by Elbert Henry Scrantom, who with Lansing 
G. Wetmore opened a book and stationery 
store at No. 10 State Street, under the name 
of Scrantom & Wetmore. A year later Albert 
C. Walker was called from New York to 
take charge of the book business as a third 
partner and some years later the firm became 
Scramtom, Wetmore & Company. The per- 
sonnel of the firm remained unchanged until 
the death of the senior partner, Mr. Scrantom. 
in 1905, when Joshua T. Gorsline, who had 
joined the company in 1883 as financial man, 
entered the partnership. 



Reduction in Postage Rates 

THE Postmaster General announces that on 
and after January i, 1922, the domestic post- 
age rate of two cents an ounce or fraction 
thereof will apply to letters for Argentine, 
Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador. Jamaica and 
Martinque. Heretofore the regular rate of five 
cents applied to these countries. 

Communications 
Better Pay, Better Work 

Albany, 27 December, 1921. 
Editor, PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY : 

Printers and 'binders, especially in New York 
City, are being paid more than ever before. Is 
there no way to insure better work than ever 
before? 

A recent small shipment of books to this 
library shows 

"Letters From A Cat," put into the cover 
upside down. 

Van Doren's "The American Novel," con- 
taining signature printed only on one side. 

Rolt Wheeler's "Boy With the U. S. In- 
ventors," with fourteen pages printed only on 
one side. 

Is there no way in which such imperfections, 
and there are more of them than ever before, 
can get back, in the way of penalty, to the re- 
sponsible workmen? 

Very truly yours, 

J. I. WYER.

Rare Books, Autographs and Prints 



THE United States Government has re- 
served a plot of ground at Fort Henry 
on which it has decided to erect a monu- 
ment to Francis Scott Key, author of the 
Star Spangled Banner. 

Members of the thirty-sixth annual conven- 
tion of the American Historical Association 
held at St. Louis last month continued the 
advocacy of an archives building at Washing- 
ton for the safer keeping of public documents. 

Alfred Goldsmith, the Lexington Avenue 
bookseller, has printed a little brochure entitled, 
"A Note on the Portraits of Walt Whitman," 
written by Sadakichi Hartmann, who is of 
the opinion that the painted portraits of the 
Grey Poet were not especially successful. The 
best portraits we have are undoubtedly due 
t<> the art of photography. 

The centenary of William Collins, the Eng- 
lish poet and author of "The Ode to the Pas- 
sions," 'born in the last week in 1721, altho 
a minor poet, did not pass unnoticed in Eng- 
land. The growing custom of celebrating the 
centenaries of those who have rendered con- 
spicuous service to literature, art and science 
by exhibitions in public libraries, addresses 
in educational institutions and tributes to their 
memory in the press and periodicals is a beau- 
tiful one. In recent years it has been growing 
in this country much to our credit. 

Early in the New Year Knight, Frank & 
Rutley of London will sell the remainder of 
the autographs collected by Henry G. Bohn, 
the famous Victorian publisher. The first por- 
tion was sold some weeks ago in London when 
the Burns manuscripts brought high prices. 
The coming sale will be of special interest to 
Shelley collectors, coming in the year of the 
centenary of the poet's death and' containing 
some extraordinary documents, letters and 
manuscripts, among them his will written at 
Geneva, July 24. 1816, accompanied bv a letter 
providing for Harriet Westbrook. the poet's 
first wife, whose death occured a few months 
later. 

The American Art Association will have 
several important print sales this month. On 
January 12 a collection of etchings and engrav- 
ings by Whistler, Haden. Haig, Cousins. Ward, 
Hucr and other masters will be sold On 
ri U i*Mr I3 rare Wh stleriana from the estate 
of WilHam Hememann. the London publisher 
will ho sold. This collection includes etchings 
lithographs, 230 unpublished Whistler letters', 
books and brochures relating to Whistler and 
several hundred letters by notables of th~ 
nineteenth century from the estate of Thomas 
Hepp of Cornwall, England, the collection 
of Miss Susan Minns of Boston, and Svdncy 
Bawling, a partner in the firm of William 
Mememann. 



The first book sale of the New Year at 
the Anderson Galleries will 'be held January 17, 
when the library of the late Albert J. Morgan, 
of Larchmont, N. Y., will be dispersed. The 
distinctive feature of the library is the many 
fine sets of American, English and French 
authors, among them sucjh choice editions 
as the American Statesmen Series, 40 vols., 
Boston, 1808-1916; a collected set of the 
first editions of the "Historical Writings," of 
Martha W. Freer, 19 vols., 1854-66; Haw- 
thorne's "Writings," 23 vols., Boston, 1900-02, 
autograph edition ; Irving's "Complete Works," 
40 vols., New York, 1895, author's autograph 
edition ; a collected set of the first editions 
of the "Historical Writings" of Jesse, 23 vols., 
London. 1840-75 ; Kipling's "Writings." 29 
vols., 1897-1920, limited Outward Bound edi- 
tion on Japan paper: and a collection of the 
"Works" of Horace Walpole 30 vols., London, 
1806-59. 



A recent issue of The Irish Times of 
Dublin printed a letter from a corre- 
spondent alleging that a "large number of 
faked autographed volumes" at the "substan- 
tial valuations of the genuine article" are 
"being manufactured for ottr American cous- 
ins." The writer did not state whether these 
are the books of Irish or English authors or 
of "books ^published in Dublin or London. 
Most well-informed American collectors have 
been growing a bit cautious in paying high 
prices for association books from abroad with- 
out being properly safe guarded. Some of 
the most active American collectors prefer 
to buy thru a responsible American dealer 
who is an expert on books of this character 
and guarantees the genuineness of the books he 
sells. If there is an error of the kind de- 
scribed it is easier to get satisfaction from 
a reliable dealer in New York than a fakir 
in a European city. 

An obituary notice of the late William F. 
Gables, the Pennsylvania collector, written 
by Charles F. Hartman and printed in his last 
sales catalog, has been the cause of not a 
little comment. In the concluding paragraph 
in a few words addressed directly to Mr. 
Gables' son. Mr. Hartman savs that "there 
are a half dozen booksellers whining around 
because Gables died and left a few small bills 
unpaid and they are worrying as to how loner 
it will take the estate to settle. 'Pay the rats 
quickly* and may the money be poison to 
them." ^ George H. Sargent, of the Boston 
Transcript, has referred to the incident as one 
of the "asperities rather than the amenities 
of book collecting." We do not know what 
basis Mr. Hartman had for writing these 
words, but they should not be permitted to 
create a wrong impression which thev might 
quite easily do. William F. Gables was one 
of the most constant and fairest of collectors 



January 7, 1922 



33 



He bought widely from rare book dealers and 
contracted no bills that will not be paid as 
promptly as the settlement of his estate will 
allow. The booksellers who knew him the 
best and had the largest dealings with him 
are not giving the matter any concern. When 
they learn^l of his death the first loss gen- 
erally mentioned on the street was that of a 
true friend not merely that of a good cus- 
tomer altho no bookseller who had had long 
relations with him could overlook the loss 
to the rare book-trade which his death brought. 
The misunderstanding that Mr. Hartman's 
remarks are likely to create may do him more 
harm than any one else. The number of 
booksellers that had open accounts with Mr. 
Gables was very large and they are all quite 
likely to resent being called "rats" or being 
given "poison." Even tho Mr. Heartman felt 
justified in speaking plainly these words under 
the circumstances were unfortunate because 
they were so likely to give an impression 
broader than intended. 

The exhibition of first editions, association 
books, autograph letters, documents and manu- 
scripts comprising English literature from 
Chaucer to Conrad, together with important 
smaller collections of French illustrated books 
of the eighteenth century and rare Americana 
held last month by the Rosenbach Company 
at 273 Madison Avenue has been generally re- 
garded as the finest of its kind ever held in 
this country. Most of the important authors 
in this long period of three centuries were 
represented frequently by their greatest rari- 
ties and sometimes by collections of unrivalled 
importance. For instance, in the case of 
Shakespeare there were the four folios and 
thirty-six quarto plays from 1600 to 1676. 
Dickens was represented practically by all of 
his first editions, over fifty presentation or 
association items, among them the incompar- 
able copy of "Pickwick Papers" in the orig- 
inal parts with presentation inscriptions to 
Mary Hogarth on fourteen of the nineteen 
wrappers; the Thackeray Jots, if less numer- 
ous, were extraordinary, containing all of the 
greatest rarities in the choicest condition and 
many that were unique: the Shelley items, 
too, were remarkable, especially the associa- 
tion books, which included the poet's own copy 
of the first edition of "Queen Mab" with 
numerous corrections and changes in his hand- 
writing; "Alastor." 1816, presentation copy to 
Edward Williams who was drowned with the 
poet; and upwards of a half dozen other pre- 
sentation copies to his most intimate friends 
including Leigh Hunt. The manuscripts and 
autograph letters were not less wonderful in- 
cluding such superlative items as the unpub- 
lished manuscript of Blake's "Seven Days of. 
the Uncreated World;" Poe's first draft of 
"Morella": Rossetti's "William and Mary": 
Scotfs "The Minstrel Pipe"; unpublished 
manuscripts of Robert Louis Stevenson includ- 
ing the short story "Heathercat" ; and others 
of like importance. The selections from 
French illustrated books were frequently 



bound in full red morocco of the period in the 
manner so prized by French collectors. The 
rare Americana contained lots of the greatest 
distinction representing a period of two and 
a half centuries. For instance the Lincoln 
autographic lots included the complete manu- 
script of his celebrated "Baltimore Address" 
delivered April 18, 1864, and the original mem- 
orandum of a plan of campaign against the 
Confederates written in September, 1861. The 
catalog of the exhibition contained forty-eight 
large octavo pages, closely printed, making 
a mere title list, containing few notes. It is 
impossible to give a fair idea of the large 
exhibit in limited space. It was frequently 
remarked while the rarities were viewed by 
collectors familiar with the best bookshops 
of Europe that no other dealer, here or abroad, 
could have equalled it and it is quite easy to 
believe this to be true. F. M. H. 

A Horrible Discovery 

["Einstein's theory is to be demonstrated in 
film form, tho hcnv it is to be done is not 
explained. The picture is being made in Ger- 
many by Walter Kornblum, with the assistance 
of Professor Otto Buck and Dr. Fanta, of 
Prague, and Dr. Laemmel and Professor G. F. 
Nicolai, of Zurich." Evening Standard.] 

Great Scott, and do I read the news aright 
Einstein the latest film-producing groove is? 

Was it for this I made them my delight. 
And forswore even music-halls for movies? 

Ts this the cloud, no bigger than a hand? 

Is this the flash that shows me where I stand? 

I fear this new and most unwelcome dish 
Prepared by the abstruse and learned 

Teutons ; 

Instead of Fairbanks, Nazimova, Gish, 
Will films now "feature" names like Kant's 

or Newton's? 

Must algebra and Euclid take the place 
Of Chaplin's antics and of Pickford's grace? 

Is this the fate prepared for me, the lamb- 
Wiho would not hear his doom resounding 
louder : 

Were Gish and Pickford just the dose of jam 
Designed to introduce this final powder? 

Was even Chaplin but the lure that led 

To Einstein and these other names of dread? 

Back, back and let me rescue from collapse 
The stage that never harbored such inten- 
tions, 

Which gave me highbrow problem plays, per- 
haps. 

But never stunts involving four dimensions! 
Back to the boards that Irving trod with zest 
Too long I've nursed a viper at my breast! 
Lucio in the Manchester Guardian.

BY THE 



PHOTO- PICTORIALISTS OF BUFFALO 

Here we hare a series of essays produced by an earnest group of workers who have gone 
far in the production of photographic landscapes on the grand scale as any workers in the

thod* of work in the field, their technical equipment, the production of negatives and the 



world 

method* , 

making of finished prints from them. To them are added two chapters on gum-printing methods. 
The full-page illustrations are SJ in number, illustrating their theories, and showing what the 
group has done in practice in the production of pictorial landscapes.

A COMPANION VOLUME 

Pictorial Composition in Photography 

By ARTHUR HAMMOND, Associate Editor of American Photography 

The most important work on pictorial composition produced in recent years and the only 
one yet projected which treats all of the well known principles of pictorial composition in such 
a manner as to make them of primary utility to the photographer. The camera demands of 
its practitioners a somewhat different treatment of pictorial material from that required in the 
other graphic arts, and so this book will tell its readers how to see landscapes, figures, por- 
traits. and other ordinary subjects of photography in the special way required to make well 
designed pictorial photographs. The technique of photographic exposure development and 
printing is nowhere lost sight of, and so the book will be far more useful to the photographer 
than any other manual on composition or art principles yet published. 

2J4 paces, 48 full page pictures. Size (% x &/,. Bound in red cloth, Price" $3.50.

A NOVEL OF THE HEART OF AMERICA 

\/andemark's 

m *4 ** 



By HERBERT QUICK 



This, is, in fact, the long-hoped-for novel of the 
Middle West. It is an epic work of vision and 
insight big, upstanding, constructive, truthful. 

It shows how a wilderness was conquered by 
the toil and courage of strong and earnest men 
and women. 

It tells in the life story of JAKE VANDE- 
MAHK how wagon trains crossed the country, 
how homes were built, farms worked, towns and 
cities constructed, wealth amassed and civilization 
established all in the short space of one lifetime.

J. C. 
SNAITH 




Here is a novelist who has distinguished himself in almost every field of fiction. 
Master of romance and of realism, the series, of novels bearing his name show 
an amazing versatility. Twenty years ago he was writing historical romances, 
including "Fierceheart the Soldier" and "Mistress Dorothy Marvin," which 
attained to great vogue in Appleton's Town and Country Library. Since that 
period he has produced novels of every type, some historical, some contemporary, 
some with a political flavor, some of romantic development of character. In each 
has been exhibited the consummate craftsmanship by which Snaith has won for 
himself an undisputed place among the foremost contemporary English novelists. 
"The Undefeated," "The Sailor," and "Broke oi Covenden" are grippingly human 
stories, full of beauty and a powerful pathos, depicting the potentiality for 
development which the human soul can display. In these novels life is a fight 
against smothering reality, with the human element (Henry Harper of "The 
Sailor," or the valiant little green grocer of "The Undefeated") providing the 
thrill of romance. Despite the grim realism of some of their pages, the Snaith 
novels, brightened with humor, may truly be described as "a straight road in 
hopeful company." Again, Snaith surprises his admirers by such a light gem as 
"The Adventurous Lady," which is high comedy of sparkling brilliancy. Of the 
author himself little is known by the public. He is a retiring man, appearing but 
seldom at his club, the famous Garrick, a keen cricketer, living 
in London or nearby, content to watch the life of war or peace- 
time England and recording his impressions of its humors and 
its romances in novels, shrewd, witty, and filled with true vision. 

THE COUNCIL OF SEVEN is J. C. Snaith's new novel. In it he 
has turned his fine abilities to the weaving of a mystery which thrill- 
ingly tells the story of a young politician who, with a brave woman 
at his side, becomes enmeshed in a conspiracy whose aims are lofty, 
but whose methods are sinister, evil, poisonous. It is a remarkable 
novel ; absorbing to any lover of mystery, romance, and vivid 
characterization. $2.00 net.

Why everyone 
is baying 

FALL NOVELS that are still in 
wick- di-mand. People are read- 
ing them ; people are talking about 
them: that is why they are still 
selling. Circulations to date on these 
iii.vi-ls run at encouraging variations 
between the i8th thousand* (for 
the lowest) and the 225th thou- 
sand* (for the highest individual 
sales). 

An index of the universal favor 
that has been bestowed upon The 
Girls, Vcra, Niels Lyhnc, Alice 
Adams, Her Father's Daughter and 
The Beloved Woman has appeared 
in the continued discussion in maga- 
zines and newspapers. Representa- 
tive comments : 

"Miss Ferber takes you so closely into the 
lives of her characters," said Percy Ham- 
mond, "that you are almost abashed." It is 
indeed an intimate study of life. 

"It is fortunate the majority of wives are 
not sufficiently intelligent to comprehend the 
frightful veracity of this novel (VERA) or 
one would be inclined to demand legislation 
forbidding the writing of novels by women." 
William McFee. 

Conforming with present-day popular novels, 
though written forty years ago, Niels Lyhne 
prompted George Kent to say: "No one has 
remembered the spiritual experiences of early 
manhood as well as the Danish novelist." 

Mr. Tarkington, also interpreting youth, 
was complimented by Henry Seidel Canby 
when he said of Alice Adams: "She is the 
lost youth of that wonderful mother in 'The 
Way of All Flesh' Samuel Butler's master- 
piece of characterization." 

Mary Squire, when she had read of Mrs. 
Porter's Linda Strong, said: "Action! She's 
at it every minute! Intimate nature knowl- 
edge so humanized that it is useful to the 
youngest." 

"In 'The Beloved Woman,' " said George 
1C. Stark, "there are some finely etched por- 
traits in the course of an absorbing love 
story." 

New requests for the six notable 
novels mentioned will doubtless con- 
tinue for some time.

tion and have come to the conclusion that 
the changes in the prices of reprints, record 
books and of certain popular priced competi- 
tive lines already announced are the only ma- 
terial reductions that are likely to be made 
during the spring season. 

An examination of the announcements of 
the leading publishers shows that fiction 
will be issued to retail at from $1.75 to 
$2.50 as in the fall just passed. The level 
of prices established last year will be 
maintained on all lines of trade books. It 
is hardly likely that in the face of this fact 
there will be any general reduction in 
catalogue prices. 

It is well known that books were not ad- 
vanced in price in the same proportion as 



manufacturing costs or other lines of mer- 
chandise during the rising market. Present 
prices could not have been maintained, if 
paper, binding cloth, etc., had remained at 
the peak price. The present level of book 
prices is based upon the present scale of 
costs, and is now, we feel confident, fortun- 
ately stabilized for some time to come. 

The forces of competition which pre- 
vented the raise in price level to the point 
that the law of supply and demand seemed 
to justify, are still as potent as ever in 
the book publishing business, and it is our 
firm conviction that prices will be reduced 
just as soon as, if not a trifle sooner than, 
a lowering in costs warrant. Our expecta- 
tion is that the first reduction in book manu- 
facturing costs will be reflected in a ten- 
dency to lower retail prices of new popular 
fiction titles as they come out. 

Publishers will be quite likely to see the 
desirability of a reduced price when the 
time appointed for it arrives. It behooves 
the bookseller, therefore, to cooperate with 
the publishers in this matter by placing the 
situation, as it exists, 'before his customers, 
and to bear in mind that the publishers 
are, of course, considering the dealer's 
own problem of the reduction in inventory 
value and margin of profit that would neces- 
sarily accompany lowered selling prices. 



Dealers who have not recently placed orders or reorders for 
stock needs with us will be agreeably surprised, we feel sure, at the 
character of the service we are now rendering. We should be glad 
to have trial orders from these with a view to demonstrating the 
advantages of conducting their business with minimum well assorted 
stocks, making frequent purchases, insuring rapid turnover and based 
upon a prompt and efficient jobbing service, provided at a reasonable 
price. Practically all orders going by mail or express are shipped 
complete on the day of receipt.

"7 hold every man a debtor to his profession, 
from the which, as men of course do seek to 
receive countenance and profit, so ought they of 
duty to endeavor themselves, by way of amends, 
to be a help and ornament thereunto." BACON. 



Book Price Levels for 1922 

AS the year opens and announcements are 
made on new books and travelers go out 
with new books and new lines of books 
in the competitive field, the question of price 
levels for the year can be somewhat gauged from 
the early indications. As has already been fore- 
told during the fall, the prices on popular copy- 
rights have been lowered and are now fixed at 
75c. The competitive lines of juveniles, birthday 
books, graduation books, etc. have shown the 
same downward tendency. 

The competitive lines are usually considered 
separately in the minds of publishers because in 
many aspects the business differs very markedly 
from that of the new book publishing. The 
cost of composition and of engraved plates is 
a smaller percentage in competitive lines with 
their large printings and in reprints does not 
come into the problem except in jackets and pro- 
motion. The cost of paper and binding, on the 
contrary, is a far larger percentage of the total 
cost. While paper and binding have not nearly 
returned to the levels of five years back, there 
have been very helpful recessions that have 
made the new price level possible. Ordinary 
book paper that was once 4c. a pound and went 
as high as I3C. is now down to about 7c. Some 
of the plain binding cloths that used to sell 
as low as I2j4c. a square yard, and have been 
last year up to 32c. are now down to 22c. 
Binding wages, since the establishment of the 
open shop last spring, have also receded, altho 
they are still 50% to 75% above the old levels. 
Pressmen who were getting $25 a week in 1914 
and who reached a $51 level a year ago are 
now at a $44 minimum. 

The materials and wage levels, therefore, are 
now about 75% to 100% more than 1914, but 
even this is a considerable recession and has 
been reflected to full extent in the competitive 
prices now going out. It seems very probable 



from the data newly collected and from re- 
ports from the paper trade and book cloth 
fields that these levels of cost are fairly well 
stabilized for the year. 

In the field of new books the announcements 
for the spring are coming out and show that 
the price levels are about the same as in the 
fall, a very large percentage of fiction at $2, 
with some at $1.90 and $1.75. On miscellaneous 
books it is hard to draw parallels, but the prices 
on books announced seem about the same as 
last fall. A detailed study of the many ele- 
ments in the cost of production that have en- 
tered the problems in the last five years shows 
that when the $2 level was reached a year ago 
this did not nearly represent the increased cost 
of manufacture, and until there came about, re- 
cessions in paper and binding cloth last spring 
the publishing of current books was decidedly 
a hazardous venture. Hope for reduction in 
other fields than paper and binding has not 
materialized. The decision in the photo-en- 
graving field in New York this week leaves 
wage scales at their high war level of $50 mini- 
mum, about double that of five years ago. The 
electrotype wages are more than double, having 
gone from $24.75 to $59. Composing room 
wages, after fall arbitration, were left at their 
war level of $50 minimum, a change from 
$24.60 in 1914. All of these are of first im- 
portance in the production of new books. 

Publishers also still find on their lists hun- 
dreds of titles that they are unable to reprint 
because the cost of issuing small editions would 
make retail prices too high for ready sale. 
Some publishers who had carried staple titles 
as assets, titles that brought in sales year after 
year, have been obliged to mark these off as as- 
sets, ' as they cannot possibly be profitably 
printed. 

The cost of advertising, traveling and -gen- 
eral overhead seems to have receded practi- 
cally none in the year, altho the elimination of 
the government tax on railroad fares has been 
one rather slight benefit in the last couple 
of weeks. 

As most of these elements mentioned seem to 
be little likely to change in the next twelve 
months, it seems a fairly common prophecy in 
the trade that prices in the new book field are 
rather stabilized for another year. Publishers 
are tending to give intensive attention to the 
best obtainable titles in order to get the greatest 
result from every book on which they have 
underwritten the high cost of manufacture. 



The Publishers' Weekly 



Bright Spot in the New Year 

ONE column of the paper that makes 
pleasant reading as the new year comes in 
is that part of the report on exchange 
rates whdch shows that our business rlations 
with Canada are to be on much easier footing 
this year than last. In twelve months the 
Canadian exchange has risen from approxi- 
mately 85 to 95. With this steady betterment 
the business interchange between the two coun- 
tries has become much easier. To no one will 
this be more welcome than to the book-trade. 

The Book Review 

BEGINNING with the new vear, the Book 
Review, published at the office of the PUB- 
LISHERS' WEEKLY, is taking on new and attrac- 
tive features to make it more valuable to those 
dealers who distribute it to their lists of book 
buyers. A regular feature will be a page on 
books and reading by Heywood Broun, and 
there will be more special articles and more 
careful make-up than ever before, making it 
the most dignified, effective and handsome im- 
print magazine that has ever been available. 

During the past few years, the experiment 
has been made of attaching copies of the Book 
Review to the third PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY of 
each month, In order to keep it in the minds of 
booksellers who might wish to contract for its 
use. This form of promotion will now be dis- 
continued as not being the most effective way 
to circularize. There has been a very marked 
increase in the appreciation of the function of 
imprint magazines in the past year, and the 
circulation of Books of the Month and the 
Book Review has shown results. 

Now that the extreme pressure on manu- 
facturing conditions has lessened, it has been 
possible to get better and better results with 
typography and illustrations, and in no field is 
attractive circularizing in this form more 
valuable than in the book world. Rebecca D. 
Moore has for the past several years been 
special editor of the Book Review and Dorothy 
Knight of the Books of the Month. 

Christmas Sales Total 

THE Federal Reserve Bank of New York 
publishes statistics on sales in department 
stores in New York City and vicinity from 
December ist to December 2Oth, which gives 
an increase of 3 per cent in dollar values over 
a corresponding period of last year and 2 per 
cent larger than December, 1919. This means 
that there has been a greater volume of mer- 
chandise sold than in any two previous years 
in this district. The figures for November 
show a slight decrease in money value of sales 
in 1921 as compared to 1920 in the department 
stores, and in mail order houses, which have 
been adversely affected by conditions in the 
agricultural districts, a falling off of about 
one-third. 



Photo Engraving Wages 

SINCE the photo-engraving shops closed 
down on January 3rd, the employers and 
employees have been in conference, and 
the employers, according to an announcement 
made after a meeting on the evening of 
January loth, have given dn on the wage scale 
and consented to continue at the present basis of 
$50 minimum for 44-hour week. The reports 
say that there has been some change in shop 
conditions, but particulars have not been an- 
nounced. 

There are about 1500 union engravers belong- 
ing to Photo-Engravers' Union Number One, 
and, altho the newspaper shops are under separ- 
ate contract from those in general job work, a 
good many of these men had walked out in sym- 
pathy with the others. Matthew Woll, Presi- 
dent of the International Photo-Engravers' 
Union, came on from Chicago and took a lead- 
ing part in the settlement. 

Paper Mill Wages 

ON January 4, the arbitrator in the paper 
mill field, Judge Frank Irvine of Ithaca, 
rendered a decision which has lowered the wage 
scale in the unskilled departments of paper- 
making while leaving the skilled -wages at the 
level which followed the cuts of last August. 
The paper mills affected are the principal in- 
dependent companies of the United States and 
Canada, not including the International Paper 
Company. 

The mills had reduced wages last August on 
percentages varying from 10 per cent to 26 
per cent. The wages of skilled workers were 
left at a level of from 54c per hour upward. 
The unskilled labor, on which the manufacturers 
asked a reduction to 3Oc an hour from 4oc has 
been placed at 32c an hour, or $2.56 a day. 
This includes wood handlers, yard men, etc. 
The agreement continues to May i, when the 
arbitration agreement, under which thi scale 
was promulgated, expires. The manufacturers 
have claimed that the mills were only about 
75 per cent busy. 

A Book Collector 

IT is always interesting to note that the writer 
of an obituary of a prominent man very 
naturally includes in his report some reference, 
if possible, to the attitude of the deceased 
towards books. In the current reports follow- 
ing the death of Senator Penrose the papers 
state that: 

"He had few diversions. He had not at- 
tended the theater in more than thirty years. 
He found no enjoyment in music and was never 
inside a moving picture show. He spent his 
nights reading and keeping pace with public 
matters. At his offices in Philadelphia was a 
good law library. At his home was one of 
the most valuable collections of books in the 
city. Attaches of the Librarv of Congress 
say no other man at the Capitol drew from its 
shelves a larger number of volumes."

The Complexities of the Printing Situation 



THE printing situation has been compli- 
cated in recent years by the organization 
of smaller unions in correlative branches 
of the printing trade, and has led to serious 
wastage in labor which has greatly increased 
the cost of printing, and therefore of publica- 
tions and this illustrates only too well the 
general complexities of the labor situation. 

The following Unions are now inter-related 
in the printing offices of New York City: 

Typographical Union No. 6 

Printing Pressmen and Assistants' Union 
No. 51 

Franklin Union No. 23 

Platen Pressmen and Platen Press Assist- 
ants' Union No. I 

Web Pressmen's Union No. 25 

Paper Handlers' Union No. i 

Paper Cutters' Union No. 119 

Bindery Women's Union No. 43 

This list does not include the Fly Boys and 
Girls Union No. i, organized some time since, 
which is understood to have lapsed into "in- 
nocuous desuetude." 

The following are Unions with which print- 
ing offices have close relation and which are 
more or less inter-dependent with them : 

Photo Engravers' Union No. i 

Electrotypers' Union No. 100 

Stereotypers' Union No. I 

Bookbinders' Union No. I 

Mailers' Union No. 6 

Bookcover Stampers' and Gold Lavers' 
Lnion No. 22. 

Bookedge Gilders' Union No. 11 

Paper Rulers' Union No. 9 

Blank Book Workers' Union No. 6 

Ink Workers' Union No. 2 

The membership of these Unions are jealous 
each of the other, and the intricacy of these 
criss-cross jurisdictions is best illustrated in 
the following official notice issued by the Paper 
Handlers' Union No. i under date of Novem- 
ber 28, 1919: 

"The jurisdiction over the work of paper handling 
sheet straightening and such other work as formerly 
came under the jurisdiction of the old Paper Hand- 
ers, and Sheet Straighteners' Union has been 
?,, y re 8 ulate d and assigned as follows: 
All paper handling, whether in rolls or flat sheets 
uch as carting storing and stripping of rolls and the 
ting, unpacking of cases and stacking of white 
neets come under the jurisdiction of Paper Hand- 
lers' Union \ o. i, I. P. P. & A. U. 

The work of straightening printed sheets whether 

performed in the Bindery or the Press Room comes 

inder the jurisdiction of Paper Cutters' Union No. 

' ? ' t j Thls a PP" to the straightening of sheets 

:ed on one side and all printed sheets that are 

received in cases as well as to the straightening of 

ill printed sheets. The work of carting the printed 

sheets and signatures from the Press Room to the 

Kindery which has heretofore been done by members 

the Sheet Straighteners' Union should also come 



under the jurisdiction of Paper Cutters' Union Xo. 
119. 

The -work of loading up the cross feed folding 
machines comes under the jurisdiction of Bookbinders' 
Union No. i. 

This will cover the matter of the jurisdiction of . 
work formerly done by the members of the old Sheet 
Straighteners' and Paper Handlers' Union so that all 
positions formerly filled by union men will continue 
to be union jobs." 

Thus the handy man, who in old days helped 
to feed or handle paper or did other odd jobs, 
is no longer permissable in union offices and 
two men may stand around idly while a third 
is doing work which either of the others might 
do as well. Such conditions are unnecessary 
for the protection of the worker and seriously 
interfere with the maintenance and develop- 
ment of the printing industry. 

In New York employing printers have gone 
so far as to divide their organization into two 
sections, those of the closed shop, including a 
large majority of printing offices, and the open 
shop, which includes a few fairly successful 
tho minor establishments. The present trend 
in industry is to follow the precedent of the 
bindery trade in emphasizing the open shop. It 
should not be impossible to obtain such re- 
organization among the Unions in relation with 
the open shop system, the only truly American 
system, without destruction or debasement of 
the Unions. The Unions would still be the 
dominant but not the dictatorial feature of 
the normal printing office, and the Union card 
should remain the best endorsement of a work- 
er for employment. 

It is doubly unfortunate that the leadership 
of the Unions in recent years has become so 
autocratic and unreasonable and unmindful 
of actual economic conditions. Strikes such as 
those in New York harbour and those of the 
coal miners have become wars of starvation, 
the modern equivalent of "your money or your 
life." The milk strike and the threatened 
butchers' strike 'both struck at the food supply 
of New York in this same spirit of starving 
out the public, and a last straw was added to 
the New York situation, with an unintentional 
touch of humor, when a vaudeville menagerie 
of howling beasts was left out on a Broad- 
way sidewalk after midnight because Union 
theater helpers refused to load the crates on 
waiting trucks which were not manned by men 
of some other Union organization. 

The building trades have been notoriously 
under the domination of leaders whose proved 
corruption has landed them in State's Prison. 



The Publishers' Weekly 



while profiteering manufacturers in these in- 
dustries have made use of such leaders in a 
joint conspiracy against the public, with the 
natural result that housing conditions have pro- 
duced increased rents and great economic 
pressure upon the workers themselves. 
. There has been a growing tendency on the 
part of labor leaders to insist upon class legis- 
lation and to forget that the wage earner is 
dependent after all upon the farmer and others 
who provide the raw materials which the earth 
affords, and that he is only part of the com- 
munity and not the whole thing. A final note 
of warning is sounded by Bryce in his "Mod- 
ern Democracies" in describing the political 
conditions in Australia, where the Labor Party 
not only has a majority in Parliament, but 
pledges members in advance of their election 
to accept the policy of the party which is 
dictated by a Labor Council, nowadays called 
a Soviet, of a few men who thus control 
legislation and practically stop fruitful 
Parliamentary debate and throttle representa- 
tive government. There also the law provides 
preference for the Unions and to that extent 
deprives other citizens of the opportunity to 
earn a living. 

The Railroad Labor Board in its recent 
decision, unanimously agreed upon with the 
support of labor representatives, pointed the 
way to the open door of friendly relations be- 
tween employers and employed, between the 
public and the Unions. In this important field 
of transportation, where high wages and high 
costs had seriously crippled all business from 



the farmer to the ultimate consumer, this 
decision recognized the Unions as the best 
means for "collective bargaining," with the 
proviso that non-union workers should not be 
unrepresented, and required peaceful relations 
between union and non-union workers. Also, 
while modifying working conditions where these 
had been made the pretext for despotic control, 
the Railroad Labor Board insisted on the rights 
of the workers to reasonable hours, proper 
sanitation and the comforts of industrial life. 
The common sense of it all is that an Amer- 
ican citizen should have the right to earn his 
bread and butter, whether or not he chooses 
to belong to a labor organization, but that the 
Unions rightly led constitute the best means 
to lead all workers and the whole community 
toward peace and prosperity. Standing stoutly 
by the principle that the wage worker is en- 
titled to a day's wage which gives him an 
increasing rather than decreasing share of his 
product the wage in any industry should afford 
to each worker a comfortable standard of 
living and this should bring about a relation 
between employer and employed in which the 
wastage of strikes and like difficulties should 
be avoided, in which efficiency should be em- 
phasized and thru which the prices of com- 
modities should be kept as low as fair wages 
permit, thus increasing demand and lowering 
the cost of increasiing supply, so that each man, 
woman and child in the country will be the 
gainer and no wage earner the loser. It is 
only by the application of the golden rule in 
industry that this ideal may be reached. 



Doing More Business on Less Capital 

By Waldon Fawcett 



THE government has been inquiring into 
"turnover" and its bearing on business 
expense. Ordinarily, a board of Agri- 
cultural Inquiry would be expected to have 
but slight interest in the rapidity of mer- 
chandise turnover, but a Joint Commission 
of Congress has just come across this factor 
in investigating the marketing system of the 
country. It will be some months before the 
final report and recommendations of the 
Commission will be ready, but its findings 
will point out that costs and profits are heav- 
ily governed by the number of turns of stock 
in a year or a season. 

< Study of retail turnover by the Commis- 
sion has followed the Commission's probe of 
the cost of distribution, or of "service," as 



Chairman Anderson likes to characterize it, 
all the functions of distribution from the 
producing plant to the point of consumption 
being included in "service." John Wana- 
maker's general manager, Franklin N. Brew- 
er, in testimony before the Commission, set 
"dealer service" above price in the considera- 
tion of customers. Thereupon, the econ- 
omists did some figuring and announced that 
49 cents of every dollar paid by the consumer 
goes for "service," leaving 37 cents to cover 
the entire cost of production, including all 
materials, and 14 cents to provide all the 
profits for manufacturers and distributors. 

Prodded by the revelation of the heavy 
proportion of marketing investment that is 
bound up in the distributive machinery, the 



January 14, 1922 



Congressional explorers have sought, from 
the business men that the Commission has 
summoned as witnesses, light on the subject 
of turnover. To the questions of members 
whether turnover can be speeded up without 
materially increasing the cost of doing busi- 
ness, most of the merchants who have faced 
the Commission have replied in the affirm- 
ative. It was pointed out, however, that when 
a certain point is passed, overhead goes up 
with the turnover, not at the same rate, but 
nevertheless steadily. 

Christmas trade was cited as illustration of 
possible illusion with respect to turnover. 
Many a retail store takes care of a sharply 
increased volume of business at the holiday 
season without any material increase in oper- 
ating expenses, but this high net gain is pos- 
sible only for a limited interval when the 
sales plant and its operative force temporarily 
sustains an overload. If the store were 
called upon to cope regularly with turnover, 
swollen to Christmas proportions, it could be 
done only if there were proportionate in- 
crease of facilities and of personnel. 

Concensus of opinion seemed to be that the 
average retail organization is susceptible of 
turning stock more frequently than it now 
does without substantial increase in operating 
expenses. One witness, who gave his cost of 
doing business as somewhere between 20 
and 25 per cent, reported the rate of turn- 
over in his store as four times a year and 
ventured the opinion that at least one addi- 
tional turnover might be added without rais- 
ing the cost of doing business. The propen- 
sity of the average purchaser to seek pleasant 
store environment points to opportunities for 
better turnover, and wide aisles offer chance 
for an increase of turnover with no advance 
in the charges for rent, heat, light, insurance. 

Starting from this idea that increase in 
turnover spells increase in profit the Com- 
mission have studied the relative ability of 
the large store and small store to obtain 
turnover. Department store executives give 
the impression that they are anything but 
cock-sure as to their superiority in turnover. 
The Wanamaker manager saw an increasing 
line of distinction between the smaller busi- 
nesses that are locally close to the people and 
the larger businesses that offer a range of 
merchandise. But he admitted that one of 
the big questions of the period is whether a 
store with central management can continue 
to compete with the smaller store in which 
the personality and the effort of the propri- 
etor enter most directly and where there is 
a personal specialized service which the more 
impersonal large store finds it hard to dupli- 
cate. 

Conceding then, that the small store cannot 
be driven out by the large store and that, per- 
haps, the efficiently operated small store has 
never been so prosperous as at present, the 
discussions have sought to square this condi- 
tion with the all-important equation of turn- 
over. It is acknowledged that the large store 
and the large mail-order house obtain what- 
ever advantage in price they possess by means 



of quantity purchases. And it has been stated 
brake upon turnover and the improvement in 
transportation and other facilities, which en- 
able the small merchant to reorder frequently 
in small lots, is an influence that narrows the 
gap between the large and small store. 

The farther the Commission has pursued the 
subject of turnover the deeper the insight into 
the structure of retail merchandising. The 
co-operative store, the consumer-owned store 
and, at the other extreme, the manufacturer- 
owned store have all been scrutinized. But 
always there was, on the part of quizzed and 
quizzers, an eye to the influence of turnover. 
William H. Ingersoll, who stated that he had 
recently been in Europe investigating this 
subject eulogized as "a marked accomplish- 
ment," the achievment of Selfridge in doing, 
in his London department store, a business, 
equal in volume of sales to Harrod's on half 
the investment. 

In suggesting a way for curing slow turn- 
over, business men who have appeared be- 
fore the Joint Commission have usually as- 
sumed that 28 per cent represents the cost of 
operation of a typical retail store. This ex- 
pense is divided into two elements. One is 
time expenses that is expenses affected by 
the length of time involved in transactions ; 
the other labor expense involving buying, 
clerk hire, etc. In the calculations at Wash- 
ington, the expense of store operation has 
seemed to be divided equally, 14 per cent be- 
ing computed for time expense and 14 per 
cent for labor expense. 

As a basis for computing the influence of 
turnover the store with one turnover a year is 
taken. The specific illustration used in some 
of the discussions was a store carrying a 
$10,000 stock to do business of $30,000 a year 
and that thus moves its stock off its shelves 
once in twelve months. For this store the 
time expenses embody : 

Rent $1800 or 6% 

Interest on investment in stock 6% 

Light, insurance, etc 2% 

Total 14% 

Labor expense is apportioned as follows : 

Buying and traveling to market l% 

Clerks and sales force B% 

Advertising 2% 

Expressage, delivery and sundries l% 

Breakage, loss, and obsolescence 2% 

Total 14% 

Grand total - 28% 

The arguments have pictured the possibil- 
ities if all labor expense be left the same, but 
there is a speeding up of the turnover or the 
time element. If the merchant could do his 
$30,000 worth of business on a $5,000 invest- 
ment instead of a $20,000 investment, then 
against each dollar's worth of stock he has 
only to charge i% or one-fourth of his year's 
rent. Similarly the interest charge is cut 
down and likewise the assessment for heat and 
light. Simply by increasing the turnover the 
time expense is reduced from 14% to 3^3%. 
That saving would, if translated to the ulti- 
mate consumer, so the Congressional Com- 
mission has been told, exceed all the theo- 
retical savings that have been promised by

The Publishers' U'eckly 



that the largest mail-order house has little 
advantage in this respect over the large de- 
partment stores and "chain" systems. The 
temptation to quantity purchases for the sake 
of securing extra discounts is accounted a 
advocates of systems that eliminate the 
middleman or contemplate co-operative 
stores. 

The above supposes that the labor item 
remains the same, but the board has been 
told by witnesses that this is not fair and 
that in the case of goods that, by the aid of 
advertising or exploitation, sell so readily 
that they turn four times a year or oftener 
there is an appreciable saving in clerk hire 
and other items under the head of labor. ^In 
order that members of the Commission 
should not discredit as preposterous sup- 
posititious cases of multiplication of turnover 
there have been laid before the jury of in- 
vestigators a number of interesting concrete 
instances of stimulus to turnover. 

A store with a record of two turns a year 



doing a business of $60,000 a year on a 
stock investment of $20,000 was brought, 
under new management to a rate of 10 turn- 
overs. It is declared that the rate of 12 turns 
which has been shown in several instances 
is not unusual where modern methods have 
been applied. Most of the witnesses who 
have praised at Washington the efficacy of 
more rapid turnover as a remedy for mer- 
cantile ills have advocated not a mainten- 
ance of present stocks with increased sales 
but rather a cutting down of stocks without 
any reduction in the amount of sales. There 
has been mentioned, as a promising remedy, 
the plan of the Domestic Distribution Divi- 
sion of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce 
which prescribes as a prerequisite of max- 
imum turnover a system of stock control 
based on "stock control cards." a card index 
file which affords a perpetual inventory and 
affords at a glance conclusive evidence as to 
which items of stock are stagnant and which 
are selling out or turning most rapidly. 



The Chicago School Book Situation 



ACCORDING to the decision announced by 
the Chicago Board of Education, Chicago 
is to make its own schoolbooks, the text 
being written by the teachers and the city pub- 
lishing them. This decision followed closely 
after the announcement of an adopted list of 
books lecommended by the Superintendent of 
Schools and his staff. 

The production of schoolbooks by a muni- 
cipality or state has been tried in this country 
a great many times and under varying condi- 
tions. If Chicago makes its texts under this 
plan, it will be the only community, however, 
actually producing its own books. The state of 
California originally tried that plan but after- 
wards amended its law so that the state could, 
instead of preparing its own books, lease plates 
from publishers for this purpose, the original 
home-made books not being satisfactory to the 
educators. It was reported at that time that 
several hundred thousand dollars worth of 
books were left on the hands of the state. At 
first, after the law was changed, most of the 
large textbook houses offered texts on a speci- 
fied royalty percentage, based on the listed 
price. Many of the larger houses, however, 
have since withdrawn from this plate supply 
business as being unsatisfactory to both their 
authors and themselves. The state of Minne- 
sota made experiments in a similar direction 
and had for a period of fifteen years up to 
1893 a plan of uniform state contracts, in which 
an arrangement similar to the California leases 
was made, largely on the series of Quackenbos 
books. They, however, reverted to the general 
plan of contract with textbook houses finding 
the other unsatisfactory. 

The state of Kansas Joes not make its own 
textbooks but leases plates, and here, as in 
California, many of the important texts are not 
offered on that plan. The Province of Ontario 



also makes its own books, edits and publishes 
them. In many states the subject has been 
under legislative discussion, but has been passed 
by as unsatisfactory to the educators, who 
believe that better texts are obtained under the 
competitive method. 

The Chicago Board of Education believes 
that texts can be produced in time for use in 
the next school year. The publishers claim that 
frequently they have to spend from two to 
three years in preparing and getting plates 
made for a successful and carefully thought out 
textbook. The difficulty of having textbooks 
written by the teachers of any one city is a very 
obvious one. The art of writing a textbook 
requires a separate talent from that of teach- 
ing, and ability to produce a textbook in any 
field is usually given to few people. Publishers 
who have sought '" vain for many years for 
just the right textbook in some particular field 
something that would measure up to their 
highest ideas for such a book are not ready to 
believe that every city school organization, no 
matter how able the teachers, has talent of that 
unusual capacity. 

The publishers in their argument against 
leased plates point out that under this plan 
there is too small return to the author and no 
adequate provision for the publisher to cover 
the years of experiment and search for the 
best text and the most usable book. Without 
proper margin, experimentation and progress 
would soon be curtailed. The Chicago School 
Board is proceeding under a statute of Illinois, 
which gives the Board of Education "the right 
to print, publish, distribute and sell its own 
textbooks." There has, however, been no 
change in the constitution of the state, as was 
provided in California in order to make per- 
fectlv sure the state's right to enter into private 
business.

Progress on Bookselling Promotion 

Committees Organized and General Plans Announced 



67 



FOLLOWING on the series of meetings of 
the past six weeks of publishers, sales man- 
agers, advertising men and travelers, the 
outline of what will be done this year in pro- 
moting bookselling is taking definite shape and 
the committees to take care of the details an- 
nounced. The committee which is in special 
charge of developing the program is as follows : 

COMMITTEE ON YEAR-ROUND BOOK 
SELLING 

Organized under the National Association of 

Book Publishers, 334 I-'ifth Ave. 

Frederic G. Melcher, Chairman 

Marion Humble, Executive Secretary 

SALES MANAGERS 

F. A. Clinch, D. Appleton & Company 
H. B. Earl, Doubleday Page & Company 
F. L. Reed, Grosset & Dunlap 
A. H. Gehrs, Harcourt, Brace & Company 
Robert G. Anderson, G. P. Putnam's Sons 
Whitney Darrow, Charles Scribner's Sons 

ADVERTISING MANAGERS 

J. W. McSpadden, Barse & Hopkins 
Harry F. Hull, Dodd, Mead & Company 
Stanley Rinehart, George H. Doran Company 
Franklin Spier, Alfred Knopf, Inc. 
George H. Brett, Jr., The Macmillan Company 
Walter Sprague, Oxford University Press 

TRAVELERS 

Desmond Fitzgerald 

Stanley Walker, Henry Holt & Company 

Herbert Gaskill, J. B. Lippincott & Company 

Joseph Green, Little Brown & Company 

James L. Crowder, Chicago 

James L. Nerny, F. A. Stokes & Company 

BOOKSELLERS 

Eugene L. Herr, President American Book- 
sellers' Association, ex-officio 
John Loos, Brentano's, New York 
F. S. Smyth, Wanamaker's, New York 

Many suggestions have developed from the 
meetings, and the committee at its first gather- 
ing took up the problem of the plans, posters 
and material for the coming six months. The 
larger appropriation, pledged by the publishers, 
which is more than double that of last year, 
will permit a wider distribution of material, 
higher grade posters and far more general pub- 
licity. When the first poster goes out, there will 
be sent to the 1700 booksellers who have been 
cooperators in the movement or to those who 
can cooperate this year, a handsome mahogany 
frame in which this and succeeding posters can 
be effectively displayed. Extra frames can be 
obtained at 7oc. each from the office at 334 
Fifth Avenue. 

The first poster that has been adopted to go 
out about January 2Oth has the wording 
"Every real home has books" and will be hand- 
somely reproduced in full color. It is felt that 
this poster will have continuing value the year 



round. There has been no effort to settle on 
a single slogan for the whole year, but book- 
sellers who are interested are urged to send in 
suggestions. This poster slogan has been ab- 
breviated from a longer one "No Home a Real 
Home Without Books" which is the form in 
which publishers will use it in their advertising. 

From among the designs of the best posters, 
book-marks will be made, according to a sug- 
gestion made by some of the booksellers last 
year. There is also being prepared a Valen- 
tine's Day band, to be used on books white 
with red lettering, as is the customary form, 
reading "To My Valentine." Any of the 
booksellers who will write for them may have 
them. It is also proposed to study the possi- 
bility of having other helps to make books 
more widely used as gifts, and a type of gift 
certificate is being designed, especially applic- 
able to books, and a second style similar in 
form but having a Christmas decoration will 
be developed ifor the fall. 

Marion Humble, who has had charge of the 
details of the campaigns for the last fifteen 
months is in executive charge of all details at 
the Fifth Avenue office with two assistants, one 
experienced in book promotion, so that ma- 
terial can go out as promptly as possible. 
Dealers will receive semi-monthly news bulle- 
tins with suggestions for display and local 
publicity, and correspondence from the trade on 
any special problems of retailing is encouraged. 
There will be frequent releases to the news- 
papers of book news, and suggestions will be 
sent to the bookseller on good types of ad 
copy. 

Besides the book news sent to a list of 150 
literary editors, there will be regular releases 
to a longer list of managing editors. Copies 
of these will be sent to publishers and book- 
sellers for information and further use. The 
Committee will endeavor, as during last fall, 
to keep magazine editors and writers informed 
about book news by letters and personal calls, 
and encouragement will be given to starting 
book columns. The committee has the advan- 
tage of the advice and assistance of the newly 
organized Publishers' Ad Club, which con- 
siders from the advertising man's point of view 
all the problems presented. A brief s-ummary 
of the emphasis that will be placed in the 
posters and publicity during the next six 
months is as follows

Plans for Booksellers' Convention 

THE Convention of the American Book- 
sellers' Association will be held at the New 
Willard Hotel, Washington, D. C, May 
8th to nth inclusive. While the plans have not 
sufficiently matured to give a detailed account 
of the proceedings of this Convention, enough 
is known about the program to be safe in say- 
ing that this will essentially and strictly be a 
Booksellers' Convention and that it will deal 
with the practical phases of bookselling. It 
is the aim of the committees that the book- 
sellers shall finance their own convention instead 



of asking the publishers for contributions for 
entertainment. This can be done by charging 
a small registration fee, as was done by the 
National Association of Stationers and Manu- 
facturers at its convention last October. 

CHAIRMEN OF COMMITTEES 

The chairman of the General Committee on 
Entertainment and Banquet is S. L. Nye of 
S. Kann & Son, Washington, D. C. The chair- 
man of the Program Committee is J. Joseph 
Estabrook of Hochschild, Kohn & Company, 
Baltimore, Md. 

They will be assisted by Sidney Avery of 
Brentano's, Washington, William C. Ballan- 
tyne of William Ballantyne & Sons, Washing- 
ton, Fred S. Woodward of Woodward & 
Lothrop, Washington, and Stanley G. Reming- 
ton of Norman Remington Co., Baltimore. 

It is believed that the first meeting of the 
Convention will be held on Monday afternoon. 
If the plans for the entertainment are carried 
out, it will be the banner convention in the 
history of the Association, as it will include a 
reception by President Harding to the Associa- 
tion on the afternoon of the nth followed by 
the banquet in the evening. 

By opening the Convention on the afternoon 
of May 8th, it will allow for those who arrive 
on Sunday plenty of time, and for those who 
arrive on Monday morning an opportunity to 
be present at the opening session. 

Another American Invasion 

WHEN the Berlin dispatches carried re- 
cently a story about the burning in the 
streets of Berlin of 40,000 dime novels, it 
seemed to indicate that the youth of Germany 
was being protected from any alien invasion. 
One reader of the dispatch has reasoned it out 
that the German soldiers having heard so much 
about our "Bear Cat" battalions had felt that 
German youth needed to be fed on Wild West 
literature in order to be able to hold their own. 
If this was the reason for their increased con- 
sumption of this literature, the concerted move- 
ment to stop its use can surely be treated as 
a pacifist measure helping on the peace of the 
world. 

The same dispatch says that the Berlin boys 
who parted with these treasures were provided 
in their place with "classical works and other 
good books." It is to be hoped that if such a 
selection were made the Berlin boys did not 
cease reading altogether but did really benefit 
by the change. This German censorship seems 
to have its counterbalance in this country 
where there have been several efforts to elim- 
inate certain harsh and gruesome features 
from Grimm's "Fairy Tales" in order that the 
American children may not be coarsened. 

With the new international character of liter- 
ature being thus demonstrated, the system of 
exchange professors can have but relatively 
small influence compared to the appalling pos- 
sible effect of Wild West heroes going to Ber- 
lin and German witches coming to our hearth- 
sides.

Religious Book Week Under Way The Fellowship of Booksellers 



THE Religious Book Week feature of the 
general Year Round Bookselling plan has 
now had its work well outlined, and the 
Committee in charge is as follows. 

F. S. Braselman, Presbyterian Board of 
Publication. 

Arthur F. Stevens, The Methodist Book 
Concern. 

H. W. Cressman, American Baptist Publi- 
cation Society. 

Vernor Schenck, Congregational Publishing 
Society. 

Arthur Kenedy, P. J. Kenedy and Sons. 

S. Edgar Briggs, The Fleming H. Revell 
Co. 

William Thomson, Thomas Nelson and 
Sons. 

Charles M. Roe, George H. Doran Co. 

Donald P. Bean, University of Chicago 
Press. 

William McGhee, Kaufman's, Pittsburgh, 
Pa. 

Charles E. B'loch, The Jewish Book Concern. 

This Committee was selected at a general 
meeting of the religious publishers held in the 
conference room of the National Association 
of Book Publishers' office, and the details 
for the work were plotted out. The date, 
as has already been announced, is April 2nd 
to 8th. It is hoped and expected that book- 
sellers will find 'this an unusual opportunity 
to display religious books. And in the fol- 
lowing week, Easter week, the display of de- 
votional books and Bibles is always a book- 
trade feature. 

The large religious organizations have 
found this plan of general co-operation of 
great value in stimulating new interest and 
better methods in book use thruput the coun- 
try, and the ministers and religious papers 
have seen an opportunity for promoting re- 
ligious reading in a way very much in ac- 
cord with their own natural inclinations. 

The Committee has felt that the big theme 
to be emphasized this year was the need of 
enrichment of the religious home life thru 
religious books, and this thought will be ex- 
pressed in posters and general discussion. Al- 
ready editors of the religious press have 
been making suggestions, and prominent 
writers in the churches have promised articles 
and messages. As was shown in the way 
the church leaders took up the subject of 
children's reading last fall, the general 
thought of the place of books in relation to 
the church has been coming to the front, 
which will make the co-operation much 
more complete. 

"What causes most human troubles? Lack 
of knowledge. What is the remedy? Read- 
ing good books." 

"How only can one get the greatest good 
from books? By owning them." 

W. F. Gregory, Manager Lothrop, Lee & 
Shepard Company, Boston, in New Era Maga- 
zine. 



AT the Booksellers' Convention last May, 
announcement was made of the election 
of the first members to the Honorary 
Fellowship of American Booksellers, which 
had been instituted by the Association to 
provide a method for giving recognition to 
those booksellers who had raised their stand- 
ards to a commendable level. 

The Committee in charge of this Fellow- 
ship, as appointed by President Herr of the 
Association, is now sending out to all mem- 
bers an announcement that nominations will 
now be received for the second year and that 
five names will again be selected from those 
nominated. The Committee in charge con- 
sists of Frederic G. Melcher, of the PUB- 
LISHERS' WEEKLY as Chairman; Henry S. 
Hutchinson, New Bedford, Mass. ; John T. 
Hotchkiss, of the J. K. Gill Company, Port- 
land, Oregon ; W. P. Blessing, of the Pres- 
byterian Board of Publication, Chicago; 
Belle M. Walker, of the Bookseller and 
Stationer, New York, and Eugene L. Herr, 
Lancaster, Pa., ex officio. 

Nominations either on the official blank 
or otherwise can be sent to the Chairman 
any time before March 1st. In connection 
with the nomination, there should be sent 
in a brief account of the business career and 
a few comments on the outstanding char- 
acteristics of the nominee's bookselling 
knowledge and abilities. Those elected last 
year were : Charles E. Butler, New York : 
George W. Jacobs, Philadelphia ; William 
Harris Arnold, New York; J. K. Gill, Port- 
land, Oregon ; and Joseph M. Jennings, Bos- 
ton. 

The plan of the Fellowship is that nomina- 
tions may be made by anyone in the book- 
trade and that after March ist these nom- 
inations will be put into the form of the 
ballot and sent out to the Association mem- 
bers for vote. About two hundred ballots 
were cast in all last year. 

The Fellowship has no separate officers or 
organization, but it is believed that by this 
method the standards toward which the Ameri- 
can retail book-trade hopes to direct its pro- 
gress will be indicated by the character and 
records of the men who are chosen for this 
honor. An inscribed parchment is prese'nted 
to each one elected, and the announcements of 
election are not made until the annual Con- 
vention. Any person nominated one year who 
does not happen to fall among the first five in 
the election can be renominated for another 
ballot. The making of such nominations de- 
pends on the initiative of the friends of the 
booksellers, and the Committee hopes that 
those who know among their bookseller 
friends, men or women, who should be con- 
sidered for this honor will take pains to see 
that the nominations are made. Extra blanks 
for the purpose describing the details will be 
sent by the Chairman on request. 



The Publishers' Weekly 



Current Clippings 

STOKES has issued a limited edition oi Hilda 
Conkling's "Poems by a Little Girl," a beauti- 
ful and potentially rare book. 



HUGH WALPOLE'S "The Young Enchanted" 
has been issued in a special edition besides the 
ordinary issue. The special edition, limited, is

THE Publishers' Circular, commenting on the 
prize of ^3,500 offered by Gyldendal, the well- 
known publisher of Copenhagen, Christiania, 
and London, for the best novel written in Dan- 
ish or Norwegian during the coming year, says : 
"This we believe to be the greatest amount ever 
offered as a prize for a novel ; it is enough to 
make one learn Danish or Norwegian." 



ELIOT HARLOW ROBINSON, author of "Smiles" 
(Page), is now on lecture tour. He speaks on 
"Our Contemporaneous Ancestors," the pic- 
turesquely primitive men and women of our

AMONG the honors of the new year's honor 
list, that of most interest to booksellers, is the 
conferring of the Order of Merit upon Sir 
James Barrie. This is the most select of all 
British orders and contains only one other 
name honored for literature pure and simple 
that of Thomas Hardy. 



SIR PHILIP GIBBS has just arrived in this 
country with his eighteen year old son, who 
has a leave of absence from Oxford to travel 
with his father. He delivered his first lecture 
in a series which he has planned to deliver in 
Boston, January 10 on "The Chance of Peace." 



W .L. George, the noted English novelist and 
feminist, is now lecturing in America. He 
delivered his first lecture in New York on 
January 8 on "The Intelligence of Women." 



ON JANUARY 16 the campaign for funds for 
the Woodrow Wilson Foundation was started. 
The foundation will make rewards for 
"meritorious service, democracy, public wel- 
fare, liberal thought or peace thru justice." 
The awards will be called the Woodrow Wil- 
son awards. 



"Most" Books 

HEYWOOD BROUN'S correspondents, 
writing to his columns, "It Seems To Me" 
in the New York World, have been making a

Books of Cheer and Diversion 

A BOOKLIST in a special field and one pre- 
pared after a great deal of experience with 
one group of readers is "Two Hundred B'ooks 
for Every-Day Use in the Hospital" that has 
just been published by the Sioux City Public 
Library, Iowa. The hospital work of Sioux 
City has been a model of what can be done in 
the direction of turning books to the best advan- 
tage in hospital work, and the description of its 
efforts has been widely quoted in medical papers 
thruout the country. Because of thp well direct- 
ed character of the work at Sioux City, the list 
will be of importance to all who are interested 
to see that books come to their full value in this 
tremendously important field. Copses of the 
list can be purchased at 150 each from the 
Sioux City Public Library Board of Trustees.

English Book-Trade News 

(From Our London Correspondent) 



WHILE pre-war standards of Christmas 
sales were not reached this year, either 
in volume or cheapness of books, the 
holiday season of bookselling was extremely 
good, in spite of pessimism in certain places. 
There is always pessimism in the trade of 
books, no matter whether you maKe, issue or 
sell them. Why is it? We have looked for 
the reason everywhere; we have discussed it 
with the pessimist and the optimist; we have 
examined conditions in all departments of the 
trade, but we have failed to rind the reason 
and what is infinitely better we have failed to 
find just cause. 

Granted that, every now and again the spirits 
of the trader, whatever it is he deals in, get 
down to a pretty low ebb, if he doesn't watch 
out, in that depth they may stay. Pessimism 
has no place in business, and the exponent of 
it never gets very high in his concern. Shrewd 
leaders weed such encumberers out; they are 
like rotten apples; they affect others. That 
means clogged machinery. It is the balanced 
optimist who scores, and he is a valuable 
person. Somehow, it is quite a fashionable 
thing to grouse about bad business where books 
are concerned, but it is, like the devil, never so 
bad as it is painted. 

The stores here were well filled, and good 
buying went on. Fortunately, the weather was 
bright, and that meant money, as you know, 
for the bookseller. The Christmas book buyer 
is not altogether easy to satisfy. He wants a 
certain kind of book, but iust what he has in 
his mind is not always clear. Now that is the 
burden of the assistant which he shoulders 
rationally and with good temper. Many books 
have to be shown .before satisfaction is given. 
When the right apparently right book is 
decided upon, there is a sigh of relief. On the 
whole, while the Englist Christmas book buyer 
is exacting, he is a very pleasant individual to 
deal with. We have spoken of "he," but more 
often than not the buyer is a "she," and perhaps 
there is a little more difficulty there. 

Among those books which everyone asked for 
were not a few, which, besides being "popular" 
nowadays a recommendation were also read- 
able. Of course, the classics old and modern, 
have rows and stacks to themselves, while there 
may be seen piles of sucH new hooks as Gene 
Stratton-Porter's "Her Father's Daughter." 
There is a great run on her. rtuge Walpole's 
"Young Enchanted" and Brett Young's "Red 
Knight" are going strong. "Mrs. Bindle" is 
doing a roariner trade, much to Mr. Jenkins's 
Helight. but the novel which is probably selling 
better than anv is that exquisite romance, "If 
Winter Comes," by A'. S. M. Hutchinson. Its 
success here is great, but in America we hear 
it is enormous. 

A great Christmas seller was Wilfrid Evart's 
"Way of Revelation." the finest war novel yet 



written. It is a first novel, and the publishers 
"backed their fancy" by printing many thou- 
sands of copies. They must feel very happy 
about it. Other books in much demand this 
holiday time are Carpenter's "Blocking of Zee- 
brugge," Ponting's "Great White South," Mr. 
Duster's epoch-making book, Sir William 
Robertson's autobiography, "Old Time Stories," 
"The Mirrors of Washington," Ben Hecht's 
"Erik Dorn," Drinkwater's "Oliver Cromwell," 
"Recollections and Reflections," Caine's "Men- 
doza and the Little Lady," Hull's "Shadow of 
the East," Sir Sidney Colvin's "Memories," 
Hall Caine's "Master of Man," Marie Corelli's 
"Secret Power," Lord Salisbury's "Life," Lord 
Rosebery's "Miscellanies," the book of Lord 
Frederick Hamilton, Professor Jack's "The 
Legend of Smokeover," Conan Doyle's "Wan- 
derings of a Spiritualist," Farnol's "Martin 
Conisby's Vengeance," "Collecting Antiques for 
Pleasure and Profit," George's "Ursula Trent," 
Norman Davey's "Guinea Girl," Lady Angela 
Forbes's "Memories," the new novels by 
Lowndes, Maxwell and McKenna, "Kate Green- 
away's Pictures," and many, many others too 
numerous to mention. 

The books with pictures by the late Lovat 
Fraser are very successful, while "The Story 
of the Mikado" is an exceedingly popular book. 
Finally, the publishers tell us that a very large 
number of subscriptions are being taken by 
booksellers for that enormously fascinating new 
twenty-part serial, "Outline of Science,'' by 
Professor J. Arthur Thomson. People are 
making Christmas present; of subscriptions to 
old and young. The success of the whole un- 
dertaking has exceeded the utmost expectations 
of the promoters, and the first issues have been 
printed again and again. 

And now for 1922 we hope a brisk drop in 
costs and a fine rise in sales. 

The Only Real Readers 

A BOOK-MARK used during the recent 
Canadian Book Week quoted the following 
from Stephen Leacock, a selection, headed "The 
Only Real Readers": 

"As a writer of books it is my opinion that 
children, or at least young persons, are the best 
readers ; indeed, the only real readers. Grown 
up adults are badly damaged. They read in 
an inattentive way, with no real effort of men- 
tal power to fuse the picture before them into 
the white heat of imasrination. They read and 
forget. Thev would pass by Weller and never 
see him. They would forget Huck Finn's 
name over-night. Their judgments are the 
standard of education and their admiration lies 
dead in the crave of their childhood. For 
real literary* success let me tell a fairy story 
to the listening ears and wondering face of 
my little son of four."

Obituary Notes 

WILLIAM H. PARKER 

WILLIAM H. PARKER, one of the founders of 
the Booksellers' League of New York, died 
suddenly at his home in West Haven on Decem- 
ber 21. For a number of years he was a 
salesman with E. P. Button & Company, leav- 
ing them to engage in farming in Maine. 'On 
his return to the book business after two years, 
he engaged with Brentano's, New York, and 
later started for himself in the old and rare 
book business in New Haven. Subsequently he 
joined the staff at Whitlock's, where he was 
employed at the time of his death. He was 
about fifty-five years old, and was known to 
many as an unusually well-equipped, all-round 
bookman. 

PRISCILLA GUTHRIE 

WORD has been received from Colorado of the 
death of Priscilla Guthrie, founder of the 
Priscilla Guthrie Bookshop of Pittsburgh. Miss 
Guthrie was one of the first women successfully 
to enter into the bookshop field, and developed 
her store along individual and attractive lines. 
About three years ago, her health made it im- 
perative for her to leave for higher climates, 
and the business was conducted for her by 
W. J. Crull, at first as a temporary arrangement, 
but finally by his putting his whole time and 
interest into the development of the business. 

MAUDLENA JOHNSON BEANE 

MAUDLENA JOHNSON BEANE died in San 
Diego, California, the latter part of Novem- 
ber. She was engaged in educational work for 
thirty-five years, the last half of which was 
spent in the Philippines. She retired in 1918 
and purchased the Occult Bookshelf and rapidly 
absorbed several other concerns. She had been 
ill for nearly two years. She is survived by 
her husband, her father, six brothers and three 
sisters. Her husband, Charles Wallace Beane, 
will continue the business. 



KATRINA TRASK 

KATRINA TRASK (;Mrs. George Foster Pea- 
body), who died at her home in Saratoga 
Springs, N. Y. on January 7, published a num- 
ber of volumes of verse, a book of short stories, 
and several plays for amateurs. She married 
Spencer Trask, the well-known financier of 
New York in 1874, who died in 1909, and about 
a year ago she married Mr. Peabody. -> former 
partner in the firm of Spencer Trask & Com- 
pany. Her list of titles include Christolan. a 
poem, (1003) ; Free Not Bound, (1903) ; In 
My Lady's Garden, (1007) ; John Leighton, Jr.;

First New York Bookselling Class 

THE lecture room connected with the New 
York Library School was filled to capac- 
ity on January 6th at the first lecture of the 
series on bookselling, which is in charge of 
Miss Bessie Graham of Philadelphia, under the 
auspices of the New York Booksellers' League. 
Mr. Eisele, as Chairman of the Committee on 
Arrangements, was in charge of starting the 
course, and it was found that the capacity of 
'the hall had been easily sold out at five dollars 
for the course of twelve lectures. 

Miss Graham's opening lecture was on bio- 
graphies, and, after a general introduction to 
the subject, she gave a most interesting account 
of the place of the popular books in the bio- 
graphical field from Boswell's "Johnson" to 
"Edward Bok." Her comment on these books 
is of the kind most valuable to booksellers, be- 
ing ,iull of incisive comparisons and interesting 
anecdotes that give the retailer just the needed 
material to help him describe the book to those 
interested. The class will follow Miss Graham's 
"Bookman's Manual" as a guide for study. 

After the hour's lecture, which begins at seven 
o'clock, there will always be a talk on some 
general trade subject, and at this session the 
subject chosen by the Chairman was that of 
"Book-Trade Periodicals," which was covered 
by Frederic G. Melcher. 

Women's Book Association 

ARTHUR Somers Roche, author of "The 
Day of Faith" which was published by

Rare Books Autographs and Prints 



ETCHINGS of New York by C. F. Mie- 
latz are on view at the Brown Robertson 
Galleries and will be followed next 
month by the etchings of a group of American 
artists. 

Hodgson & Company of London have re- 
cently been instrumental in bringing to light 
a hitherto unrecorded copy of the first edition 
of Caxton's "Chronicles of England," 1480. 

Thomas J. Holmes of Cleveland, who has 
been engaged for several years in compiling a 
bibliography of the writings of Cotton Mather, 
the New England divine, has nearly completed 
his task. 

Dickens first editions have been bringing 
good prices in London. A copy of "Pickwick," 
in parts, brought 610; "A Tale of Two 
Cities," in parts, 80; and the "Sketches of 
Boz," 3 vols., original cloth, 76. 

Historical records of cathedrals and cities of 
France made between October, 1918, and 
March, 1919, by D. Putnam Brinley are on 
view at the Montross Galleries. The drawings 
were made on the spot in one sitting and record 
conditions now being altered. 

A collection of early aquatints is now on 
exhibition at the New York Public Library. 
Invented in 1768, the acquatint was popular, 
especially as a medium for illustration, for 
nearly a century. The selections bring out the 
beauty of the work done during the height of 
its popularity very effectively. 

A collection of books of modern authors, 
mainly first editions, together with original 
manuscripts of the late Edgar Saltus and other 
important books and autographs from various 
consignments will be sojd at the Anderson Gal- 
leries January 18. The collections of Conrad, 
Hardy, Masefield, Swinburne and Wilde are 
especially noteworthy. There are several manu- 
scripts of Walt Whitman of very great interest 
that collectors of the Good Grey Poet cannot af- 
ford to overlook. 

The New York Public Library Bulletin notes 
the accession of a file of the scarce Columbian 
, Mirror and Alexandrian Gazette, published at 
Alexandria, Va., covering the last four months 
of Washington's administration. Another ac- 
quisition is the Duplessis portrait of Benjamin 
Franklin, presented by Franklin to Louis de 
Veilland. mayor of Passy, which passed into the 
hands of M. de Senarmont, from whom it was 
secured by John Bigelow who gave it to the 
library. 

A collection of missals, codexes and ancient 
books belonging to the late Emperor Franz- 
Josef of Austria-Hungary and said to number 
upwards of 10,000 items, has been added to the 



Vatican Library for the use of students of all 
nations. The collection was the property of a 
Roman nobleman who donated it to the Jesuits 
on condition that if the order was suppressed 
it should be placed in the care of the Emperor 
who thus became the owner in 1873. 

The fine collection of cookery books gathered 
by Blanche DuPuy, together with many rarities 
in all classes of literature from various con- 
signors will be sold at the Anderson Galleries 
January 18. The rarer items include a mag- 
nificent copy of the original folio edition of 
Audubon's "Birds of America" and also of the 
"Quadrupeds;" a number of Kate Greenaway 
items including presentation copies and original 
drawings; Milton's "Paradise Lost," first edi- 
tion with the 1667 title; William Pitt's copy 
of the Third Folio of Shakespeare; a remark- 
able autograph letter of Edgar Allan Poe and 
many other lots not less extraordinary. 

On January 26 and 27 an unusual aggrega- 
tion of rarities, including twenty-nine con- 
signments large and small, will be sold at the 
American Art Galleries. The largest and 
most important of all consignments is a part 
of the library of Frederick Corder of London 
which contains some very rare Cruikshank, 
Rowlandson and Dickens books, many in parts, 
in the choicest condition and frequently of the 
utmost rarity. There are also rare association 
books, first editions of Kipling from the 
Martindell collection; collected sets of first 
editions of English and American authors, un- 
published manuscripts and colored plate books. 
It will probably be the most important sale 
of the season thus far at the American Art 
Galleries this season. 

The famous collection of first editions, asso- 
ciation books, autograph letters, manuscripts, 
and relics of Charles Dickens gathered by the 
late Dr. R. T. Jupp of London, will be sold at 
the Anderson Galleries February i and 2. The 
catalog contains 491 lots including some of the 
greatest importance such as "Pickwick," in 
parts, with rare points; Dickens "Memoranda 
Book" containing ideas for books written and 
unwritten ; the manuscript account of the death 
of Grip the raven ; upwards of one hundred 
autograph letters, some of great personal and 
literary interest, and a number of personal 
relics among them Dickens' wedding gift to his 
bride, the writing case he used in America, etc., 
all duly authenticated by Georgiana Hogarth. 

The New York Evening Post sums up the 
menace of the Fordney Tariff schedule on books 
as follows : "The amount of the general duty 
would be raised not merely to the old 25 per 
cent level, but, thanks to the American valua- 
tion section, in many instances high beyond it 
to 30 or 35 per cent. This increase would 
wholly disrupt the long-established co-operative 
arrangement between American and British

publishers to which we owe the possibility of 
the publication of many scholarly books of 
limited demand and many series of books upon 
which British and American authors have 
collaborated. It would thus injure no fewer 
than 175,000,000 English-reading people thru- 
out the world." 

"It is a remarkable feature of the present 
state of the book market," says the Bookman's 
Journal of London, "that there has been so 
keen a demand for the writings of moderns, in 
particular, perhaps, George Moore, W. B'. 
Yeats, Max Beerbohm, John Masefield and 
Walter de la Mare, the latter a writer of 
peculiar charm and delicacy, whose accession 
to the ranks of collected authors has been 
too long delayed. Tho the enthusiasm of col- 
lectors of such first editions is not a whit less 
than their brethren of ampler means who in- 
dulge in Caxtons and First Folios the field is 
nevertheless open to a much larger circle, and 
certainly affords a relative interest." 

France has preparations well in hand for the 
commemoration this year of the tercentenary 
of the birth of Moliere which occurs this year. 
The absence of papers written or signed by 
him is being discussed anew. As actor, author, 
and manager he led one of the busiest of lives 
but it is a mystery what has become of every 
scrap of his writing. Only three signatures are 
known to exist, one of these is owned by the 
Comedie Franchise and another is in the Na- 
tional Archives. Fifty years ago a receipt of 
six lines signed "Moliere" dated 1656 was 
brought to light and a few years later another 
receipt of four lines was discovered, but both 
documents were pronounced forgeries by ex- 
perts. There has been many theories and an 
incredible amount of searching but without 
result. 

The January number of the Bookman's 
Journal and Print Collector is at hand and in 
text and illustration is quite equal to the pre- 
ceding three issues in its new form. The first 
article is an interesting discussion of the ques- 
tion, '"Should Translations Improve upon their 
Authors?" by Arthur Symons ; "The Etchings 
and Dry-Points of William P. Robins," with 
illustrations, is the subject of an illuminating 
article by Malcolm C. Salamon; the rarity of 
"The First School Prizes," with illustrations, 
by A. W. Pollard, of the British Museum will 
especially interest collectors; "With Queen 
Elizabeth to Westminster," with illustrations, 
by W. Jaggard, is alive with historical interest. 
In addition to special articles there are the 
usual departments, Notes on Prints Old and 
New," "Book Reviews," "American Notes" by 
George H. Sargent, "Books in the Sale Rooms," 
"Book Prices," "Catalogues from Bookshops," 
"Correspondence," and the specially interesting 
feature "Men and Matters." The collecting of 
books, autographs and prints has become highly 
technical. The collector cannot know too much 
about what is doing; even a little knowledge 
sometimes saves much money. The need for a 
periodical of this kind is apparent to every one. 



The way to give it its greatest usefulness is to 
subscribe for it, read it. keep in touch with its 
editors and encourage them to do their best. 
Booksellers and collectors should give this mat- 
ter their attention for it is for their interest 
that there should be an international periodical 
of this kind brought to the highest degree of 
efficiency. F. M. H.

GERTRUDE ATHERTON'S 

Heart-gripping novel of San Francisco and New York 



SLEEPING 
FIRES 







The success of SISTERS-IN-LAW, still going 
a year, points to big sales for Mrs. Atherton's 1922 novel, 
SLEEPING FIRES, which is likely to be more talked about 
even than SISTERS-IN-LAW. 

SLEEPING FIRES is more closely packed with action than 
any novel Mrs. Atherton has written. The scene is San Francisco 
and New York around 1870, but the problems that make up the 
plot know no definite period. No novel we have ever read treats 
the eternal triangle in a similar manner.

Can Books 
be SOLD 



The average publisher issues scores of books 
each year, scatters half-hearted support among 
them, and hopes that one or more may catch the 
public fancy and be bought in quantities. He 
does not jr//his wares as other manufacturers do. 
He gambles on issuing something that the pub- 
lic will take away from him. 

Each year he repeats this process, abandon- 
ing books that showed promise in order to 
bring out new failures. 

After investigation, the Business Survey of 
THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE has come to the conclus- 
ion that books can be sold and that advertising 
can be an invaluable aid in selling them. Book 
publishers have run announcements in THE 
TRIBUNE, but (except in the case of subscription 
books) have never advertised their wares in this 
market. But it can be done profitably. 



We invite discussion with any publisher 
who wishes to substitute modern merchan- 
dising methods for the lottery element in 
his business. 



THE WORLDS CPEATEST 



January 21, 1922 



ELEANOR 
GATES 




100% American this novelist and playwright can be called. Geographically, she 
hails from the West, born in Minnesota, brought up in South Dakota' and 
California. Her family, with many distinguished members, runs back for three 
hundred years in New York and New England. From her childhood dates her 
love for the open and for horses. At the age of three, we learn, she could sit her 
horse on the Dakota prairies and was presented with her first saddle. From five 
to eleven she "punched cows" and, with her brothers, was an active trapper. It 
was on the great plains that she first came in contact with literature; Scott, 
Dickens, Thackeray, Byron swung at her saddle horn ! At Stanford University 
and the University of California, later, her years of study were completed. 
A move to New York started her active career of writing, with delightful short 
stories followed up by the novels and plays that have won her fame. "The Poor 
Little Rich Girl," both as novel and play, made her name a household word 
throughout the country. Its appealing fancifulness and droll humor leading 
critics to hail her as "the American Barrie." Eleanor Gates is the wife of Fred- 
erick Moore, author of "Siberia Today," "The Samovar 
Girl" and other popular volumes. While riding continues 
to be her favorite recreation, she also is proud of her 
abilities as a cook. 

THE RICH LITTLE POOR BOY, Eleanor Gates' new novel, 
is of most unusual significance. A great big idea is back of it 
which will win for it a vast audience of readers. This idea is 
that there is a power within each one of us by which we can 
win our way to happiness and success, regardless of how smoth- 
ering may be the every-day details of our surroundings. In its 
pages is told with entrancing fancy and drollest humor the story 
of how a little boy in the city slums found high content through 
the gift of an imagination which could make a Niagara out of 
the kitchen sink and could bring Rockefeller into intimate con- 
. verse over the clothes-line telephone wires ! In entertaining 
chapters, with pleasing characters and skillfully built action. 
Eleanor Gates' novel has an idea in it that will sell it to every 
man and woman (and child, too), who finds pleasure between 
the covers of a book. $2.00 net.

EVERLASTING 
WHISPER 



A novel of stirring adventure in the High Sierras 

By JACKSON GREGORY 

We are confident that this story of the California wilder- 
ness by the author of "MAN TO MAN" and "JUDITH 
OF BLUE LAKE RANCH" will score a striking suc- 
cess. Gregory, with five successful novels to his credit, 
has been steadily building up a strong following. He 
has put luch good work into "THE EVERLASTING 
WHISPER" that we expect it to double the total reached 
by any of his previous books.

Half a million copies of Mr. Har- 
rison's three previous novels have 
been sold. 

We believe this new book will be 
the most notable novel of the 
new year. 

And we will back this belief with an 
advertising campaign proportionate 
to the unlimited selling possibilities 
of what we are convinced is an 
even more compelling novel than 
"Queed".

S. B. H. Hurst 

is a new name in the world of books. Harper & 
Brothers have added it to their list of distinguished 
authors confident that Mr. Hurst's success and perman- 
ent standing are assured by his amazing first novel. Only 
a man of his keen intelligence and wild and weird exper- 
iences could have written it. He went to sea at sixteen 
and sailed before the mast in ships carrying cargoes, as 
well as pilgrims and convicts, to all parts of the East. 
His book is called 

COOMER ALI 

HERE the sailor novelist opens up a new world of 
fiction the land and sea from Calcutta to Mecca. 
Coomer AH is a tale of three of the strongest characters 
that ever prayed and dreamed and schemed through the 
pages of fiction. 

Coomer AH is a fiery little Mohammedan whom Allah 
has deserted in his hour of need; so he sets out for 
Mecca to tell the whole M/phammedan world that there 
is no Allah. Captain Armit is a black-listed British sea 
captain whose opium dreams tempt him to try to steal a 
valuable cargo. And Mr. Brown is a Far Eastern half- 
breed, who specializes in telling others how to escape 
punishment for crime on the high seas. 

Their story is the product of an impatient inquiring mind 
which has penetrated to otherwise unknown depths in the 
life of the Orient. You have never read anything like it. 
It will be widely advertised, and is the kind of story that 
will make record sales on word of mouth publicity. It 
will give your book buyers the "S. B. H. Hurst" habit 
'for the series of fascinating tales by this author to 
follow. $1.75

Abbe Pierre 

D. Appleton and Company announce 
that they will publish in April a most 
unusual novel to be called "Abbe 
Pierre." Not once in a decade does a 
first novel of such extraordinary 
charm and high literary quality come 
into the offices of a publishing house. 
The publishers have no hesitation in 
stating that they believe this novel will 
be the outstanding fiction success of 
the spring of 1922. "Abbe Pierre" 
will interest all types of readers. A 
promotion campaign worthy of such 
a work is being prepared, further an- 
nouncements of which will appear 
here from time to time.

TROUBLE- 
THErHOUSE 



By KATE JORDAN 



Author of "The Next Corner," "Against the Winds," etc. 

We expect that 1922 sales of Kate Jordan's story of a girl "Penrod," 
TROUBLE-THE-HOUSE, will be larger than the sales in 1921. The book 
is receiving the enthusiastic commendations of leading reviewers just 
the sort of reviews which are sure to start people reading it. 

The New York Evening Post says: "A delightful yarn about a little girl 
whose vaulting imagination was continually plunging both herself and 
her family into difficulties . . . There is much observation and humor- 
ous sympathy in the book ... It will prove abundantly entertaining to 
ail readers furnished with a humorous appreciation of character." The 
l\ew York Herald says: "The book is pervaded by the happy laughter of 
youth that will reach the ears of many. It cannot fail to touch many 
hearts, too, for beneath the joyousness flows a tender stream of quiet 
melancholy. It is a reminiscence that never remains only that, for it 
is a novel written by a novelist." The New York Times says: "In Kate 
Jordan's latest story we get a book that gives us a girl who is really that. 
. . . Susy Gilvarry is as real as 'Penrod,' and as intensely individual, an 
individuality that prevents neither of these engaging youngsters from be- 
ing typical of childhood, as distinct from ma- 
turity, or even near-maturity. No one can read 
TROUBLE-THE-HOUSE without shouts of 
laughter . . . It is a book as fresh and brac- 
ing as a clear wind from the West. To the last 
page you read with huge entertainment and 
rrowing sympathy. Here are real characters. 
There is a background, charming as an old 
print, . . . and here, above all, are real chil- 
dren, real girls."

THE AMERICAN BOOK TRADE JOURNAL 
FOUNDED BY F. LEYPOLDT 

January 31, 1922 

"I hold every man a debtor to his profession, 
from the which, as men of course do seek to 
receive countenance and profit, so ought they of 
duty to endeavor themselves, by way of amends, 
to be a help and ornament thereunto." BACON. 



Publishing Association Steps 
Ahead 

THE new publishers' association, the Na- 
tional Association of Book Publishers, 
enters upon its third year with a record 
of accomplishment and a prospect of future 
continuance and usefulness, which, unhappily, 
previous organizations had not been able to 
show. The first of these, the American Book- 
Trade Union, of the early seventies, was start- 
ed by the retailers of the Middle West under 
the presidency of Isaac B. Aston of Colum- 
bus, O., and later under the presidency of An- 
son D. F. Randolph of New York, who as 
writer, speaker, editor, publisher and book- 
seller combined in himself the several relations 
of the association. It had but a brief career 
of a few years, and its surviving leader is 
Timothy Nicholson of Richmond, Indiana, its 
treasurer, who still preserves his business re- 
lations with the trade a a retail bookseller 
under the same name and in the same lo- 
cality as fifty years ago. 

Next came the American Publishers' Asso- 
ciation, which started upon a useful career 
\\ith every promise of continuance, but which 
was wrecked by the decisions of the Courts 
that some of its actions, however well meant, 
violated the Anti-Trust Law, so that it per- 
force came to an end, to the serious cost of 
many of its members. Curiously enough, it 
had scarcely gone out of existence before the 
government in the war years insisted that 
there ought to be an association of publishers 
with which the government could deal. The 
National Association of Book Publishers has 
now come to the front and is already dealing 
with questions, such as tariff and copyright, 
in close relationship with our government. 

The record of the Association, as presented 
at the business meeting, which will be pub- 
lished in full in our ensuing number, tells the 
story in detail of what are really extraordi- 



107 

nary accomplishments \vithin the short space 
of sixteen months. Recently, the American 
Publishers' Copyright League has assimilated 
itself with the larger organization as its Bu- 
reau of Copyright, and throughout this pe- 
riod of organization the new Association has 
liad the cordial cooperation of publishers with 
very few exceptions, these last largely because 
of the fear of having relations with any asso- 
ciation whatsoyer i n view of the mistaken leg- 
islation of several states as to educational 
books. Except for these, it represents com- 
pletely the present scope and variety of Amer- 
ican publishing, and. as we have recently had 
occasion to emphasize, at a time when there it 
large expectation that American publishing is 
at the beginning of a great era of development. 

For this result a large share of the credit 
must be given to the first and only President 
of the Association, who has stood behind the 
executive officer and the several committees 
with an energy, enthusiasm and business acu- 
men which have been one of the chief factors 
of the success of the Association. It has not 
been given to any President of the United 
States, even Mr. Roosevelt, to be nominated 
for a third term through a constitutional 
amendment, and Mr. Hiltman has been moral- 
ly forced by the pressure of his appreciative 
associates into the acceptance of the burden 
of this post of honor for a third period. 

At the business meeting and afterward at 
the convivial gathering there was universal 
appreciation of the service which he and oth- 
ers had done for the whole trade, and the 
unanimity of aim and breadth of purpose 
which have been shown throughout this short 
period of the Association's existence give high 
hopes for its future service in a profession 
whkh must increase in ratio both with our 
increasing population and increasing literacy. 

Price Maintenance Decision. 

THE conditions of price maintenance is only 
slightly clarified by a decision hi the United 
States SupremeCourt in the Beechnut Pack- 
ing Co. case. This decision, however, decides 
that any producer of a product can refuse to 
sell direct to any purchaser whose business 
methods, such as price-cutting, he objects to. 
Whether there can be any general policy of 
maintaining prices when goods are passed 
through other hands is left undecided. As it 
would stand to-day, any publisher is free, as 
an individual, to cut off any account, but would 
not be free to maintain prices thru others.

The Publishers' Weekly 



America and the International 
Copyright Union 

THE amendatory copyright bill, of which 
the text as presented to Congress on be- 
half of the Authors' League is printed 
elsewhere, has for its chief purpose the en- 
trance of America into that particular family 
of nations known as the International Copy- 
right Union. This was one of the earlier pur- 
poses of copyright reform, even before the 
Act of 1891 which, at the instance of the Typo- 
graphical Unions, contained the manufacturing 
clauses which made entrance into the Union 
impossible. 

The passage of this bill would not only give 
us our place with other civilized nations in 
copyright relations, but would be of especial 
value at the moment in strengthening the 
influence of the new liberal government hi 
Canada, which desires reciprocity with Ameri- 
ca, in disapproving the copyright measure 
with the manufacturing clause directed against 
this country, which passed the Canadian Par- 
liament last year but has never had approval 
of the government. 

The draft for the copyright amendatory act 
has been modified from time to time as con- 
sultation developed criticisms or suggestions. 

Section i provides for adhesion to the In- 
ternational Copyright Union, which consists 
in notification under this enabling act to the 
Swiss government and for presidential pro- 
clamation, presumably of simultaneous date. 
The provision to include in the proclamation 
a list of the countries comprising the Union 
was omitted because of the awkward precedent 
which might require the President to make 
proclamation each time a new country ad- 
hered to the Union. 

Sections 2 and 3 are necessarv concomit- 
ants of entrance into the International Copy- 
right Union. 

Section 4 repeals in detail the manufactur- 
ing provisions and references thereto, the re- 
peal having the assent of the Typographical 
Unions. 

Section 5 contains the positive declaration 
necessarv for entrance into the International 
Copyright Union by extending the scope of 
our copyright laws to cover works bv citizens 
or subjects of any country which is in the 
Union and works by Bothers copyrighted in the 
countries of the Union. It is not drawn to 
extend such copyright to works previously 
published, and it is not vet determined whether 
this will be in the way of our becoming a Union 
country. On this point question has been 
asked of the Director of the International 
Copyright Union. Prof. Rothlisber^er at 
Berne, who is the highest international author- 
ity on copyright. The main and evident re- 
quirement is that no formalities should be re- 
quired, except those of the country of origin 



or first publication, if any. Tho this requires 
that works by foreign authors shall not be 
subject to the formalities required for do- 
mestic copyright within the United States, it 
is not to be considered that this is a discrimin- 
ation against American citizens, because they 
in turn have the right to copyright protection 
thruout all the countries of the International 
Copyright Union without any other formali- 
ties than those in our own country. 

Section 6 replaces the absolute prohibition 
of importation of Section 31 of the copyright 
code by a prohibition conditioned on registra- 
tion and deposit by the proprietor of the Am- 
erican copyright. This permits importation 
without question until such registration and 
deposit are made, after which importation is 
permissible only by assent of the American 
publisher, with the exceptions provided. These 
are the same as in the previous law, except 
that individuals and libraries must first re- 
quire the American publisher to agree within 
ten days to furnish the desired foreign copy. 
This provision is felt bv publishers to be neces- 
sary to assure them of the copyright territory 
for which they have arranged, but the libra- 
rians object to this interpretation, and by un- 
animous vote at the A. L. A. Council meeting 
in Chicago, December 30th, have instructed 
their Committee to oppose this change, which 
must apparently be fought out at the Con- 
gressional hearings. It should be noted that 
this section is confined exclusively to books 
and does not coyer works of art, etc. 

Section 7 provides for regulations "as pre- 
scribed" by the Supreme Court, which phrase- 
ology extends previous regulations to cover 
the new circumstances or permits additional 
regulations. 

Section 8 gives the President immediate au- 
thority to act, but dates rights and remedie- 
from the subsequent date of the President' 
proclamation. 

Doubtless, discussions of the bill before th 
Congressional Committee will bring 
changes which may prove desirable and whi 
may or may not be opposed, but it is to 
hoped that no opposition will have the effe 
of preventing the passage of the bill in i 
essentials and of stopping our progress in thi 
direction and our better relations with ou 
English-speaking neighbor across the imagin 
ary boundary which separates us from 
Canada. 



The American Copyright Act 

THE following is the text of the propose< 
amendatory act. making it possible for the 
United States to enter the Internationa

Patents, which, doubtless will later give public 
hearings.

Publishers Have Optimistic Meeting 

Large Attendance at 2nd Annual Meeting of the National Association 



THE second annual meeting and luncheon 
of the National Association of Book 
Publishers was held on January I7th at 
the Yale Club with a large number present. 
At the business meeting, John W. Hiltman, 
President of D. Appleton & Company, was 
elected for another term as President, and in 
speaking to this nomination John Macrae of 
E. P. Button & Company made a glowing and 
well-deserved tribute to the initiative, tact and 
enthusiasm which had been shown by Mr. 
Hiltman and which had been responsible for 
the growth of the organization and the value 
if tne work accomplished. 

The report of the last meeting was read by 
Frank C. Dodd, the Secretary, and the Trea- 
surer, Alexander Grosset, showed that the 
Association had lived within its budget and had 
also been handling funds of the book promo- 
tion campaigns which are carried on as a sep- 
arate enterprise. Both Mr. Dodd and Mr. 
Grosset were reelected Secretary and Trea- 
surer, and as V ice-Presidents John Macrae 
of E. P. Button & Company, Charles C. Shoe- 
maker of the Perm Publishing Company, Al- 
fred Mclntyre of Little Brown & Company, 
Ogden T. McClurg of A. C. McClurg & Com- 
pany were elected. The directors for three 
years will be W v E. Pulsifer of B. C. Heath 
& Company, William Thomson of Thomas 
Nelson Sons, Edward S. Mills of Longmans, 
Green & Company, Ogden T. McClurg of A. 
C. McClurg & Company, George L. Wheelock, 
The Century Company. Ten other directors 
carry over for the ensuing year. 

The President in his address spoke of the 
fine cooperation that had been obtained from 
the Board of Birectors and the Executive Com- 
mittee, and congratulated the organization on 
the fact that the publishing business had 
passed through a most disturbing year, suffer- 
ing less than most lines of commodities. He 
emphasized the business aspects of publishing 
and the fact that publishers must look at their 
investments and depreciations on the same 
basis as other manufacturers do if they are 
to keep in aggressive condition for new enter- 
prises and successful selling. He believed that 
all lines of business had found the valbe of 
quick turnover and that retailers would be 
more likely than before to buy often and sell 
quickly, and publishers must on their part 
watch against accumulating non-fluid invest- 
ment. 

The Executive Secretary made a detailed re- 
port of the work of the year, showing the 
continuous activity that goes on at the office 
and the pressing problems that had come up 
in 1921. problems of wage scales, of forty- 
four hour week, of freight rates, traveling ex- 
penses, photo-engraving contracts, tariff, copy- 
right, all of which made the weekly meetings 
of the Executive Committee both necessary 



and continuously valuable to the whole in- 
dustry. in the new quarters there is room for 
a large conference room and a smaller com- 
nmtcc room, as well as two offices, one of 



The Committee on Tariff, through its Chair- 
man, John .Macrae, reported on it-, activities 
since the 1'ordney Bill was announced in July 
and with regard to the present situation in 
Washington. He believed that the American 
book-trade was now in a position where it did 
not need protection, except in so far as the 
^A* 1 ?? 1 . 1 " eeded Avenue from all imports 

Mr. Melcher, reporting for the Bureau of 
Copyright outlined to the members the fea- 
tures of the new Copyright Bill, and gave to 
members a draft of the revision as it was be- 
ing presented to Congress. He pointed out the 
importance of our entrance into the Berne 
Convention and of the most creditable atti- 
tude of the printers toward this change 

Mr. Shoemaker reported for the Committee 
on JNIew Outlets and told of the many inquiries 
received for information about new bookstores 
of the circulanzation of the pamphlet on 
Opening A Book Bepartment" Copies of 
the new pamphlet on "The Successful Book- 
shop ' were given their first distribution. This 
is intended to give newcomers into the field 
of small, intimate bookshops some practical 
information on how to begin business. Mr 
Pulsifer of D. C. Heath Company reported 
for the educational group, and Mr. Watson 
ol W. L. Saunders Company for the medical 
group. Mr. Boubleday, speaking for trade 
publishers, made one of his characteristically 
pungent speeches, suggesting that one of the 
differences between a publisher and the aver- 
age manufacturer 'was that the publisher 
would sometimes issue books out of purr 
friendship and against his best judgment as 
a publisher, while nc manufacturer of tools. 
for instance, would put out a screw driver 
unless he felt that was the one best in^tru- 
ment for its purpose. 

Mr. McClurg, speaking on Middle Western 
conditions, gave a talk that was listened to 
with great interest, analyzing the reports that 
had been coming in from the cotton belt, where 
things were more encouraging from the corn 
belt, where there was naturally a strong re- 
flection of the farm product prices, and from 
the Northwest, where the first reports in were 
highly encouraging. He emphasized the im- 
portance of the general promotion of books 
by the publisher, in order that the jobber and 
retailer may get full results from their own 
selling effort. At the close of the meeting, 
Mr. Stokes expressed the opinion, which was 
echoed in a rising vote, that the thanks of the 
whole organization be extended to President 
Hiltman for what he has done for publishing

and for the Association during the year and 
that this expression of opinion should be writ- 
ten into the minutes. At one o'clock, those 
who had attended the business meeting and 
others from the publishing organizations gath- 
ered at a luncheon in the Club, one hundred 
people being seated. 

After the luncheon, President Hiltman 
turned the gavel over to Frederick A. Stokes, 
member of the Executive Committee of the 
Association, and deservedly favorite toastmas- 
ter in publishing circles. Mr. Stokes referred 
to the gathering as "a little disarmament con- 
ference among the book publishers,'' and con- 
gratulated the group on the large and enthu- 
siastic attendance. 

He introduced as the first speaker Joy El- 
mer Morgan, Editor of the Journal of the Na- 
tional Education Association. Mr. Morgan 
made a brilliant and suggestive speech, under 
the subject of "The Education Renaissance 
and the Book Publisher." He evidenced the 
fact that there was a world-wide determina- 
tion that education should be really universal, 
and that, in this country especially, organiza- 
tion was being rapidly rounded out so that we 
should have better teachers, and therefore 
more intelligent and better graduates from our 
schools. He spoke of the important place of 
general reading in any educational effort and 
of the place that book publishers had in the 
general scheme of educational increase. Mr. 
iMorgan was followed by Carl H. Milam, Sec- 
retary of the American Library Association; 
whose suggestions as to what the libraries 
were doing and how this fitted into such plans 
that the publishers and booksellers were doing 
were very pertinent to the atmosphere of the 
were very pertinent to the atmospnere of the 
meeting and highly applauded. 

Representing the Authors' League of Amer- 
ica, of which he is President, Jesse Lynch 



Williams made a graceful speech, and em- 
phasized the constructive work that the au- 
thors were doing. Besides their initiative in 
bringing this country into the Berne Confer- 
ence, he spoke of their efforts toward heading 
off censorship. Very recently the League called 
together a group of people representing va- 
rious theatrical interests : managers, actors and 
writers, and the concrete suggestion coming 
from that discussion was that a plan should 
be made for the providing of a panel of one 
hundred to three hundred people in the city 
or vicinity, women from civic clubs perhaps 
or men prominent in city affairs, representa- 
tives drawn from the universities, etc., and 
from this large panel of intelligent people there 
should be drawn a jury of twelve who would 
be called upon when any complaint should be 
registered against a play and pass opinion as 
to its worthiness. If it was judged by such 
a jury to be a bad play, it would be taken 
from the stage under contract agreed to by 
managers, authors and actors interested. It 
was thought that some such agreement could 
be reached. 

The toastmaster read a letter of greeting 
from Eugene L. Herr, President of the Ameri- 
can Booksellers' Association, who was pre- 
vented from being a guest. 

George W. Hopkins, Vice-President and 
General Sales Manager of the Columbia 
Graphophone Company, gave a stimulating 
talk on "Merchandising Nationally," making 
many suggestions based on his experience in 
several lines of merchandise. The program 
closed with a humorous talk by Donald Og- 
den Stewart, author of "A Parody Outline of 
History." At the head table with the speak- 
ers and as guests of honor were those to 
whom Mr. Stokes referred as "deans in the 
profession," W. W. Appleton. George Haven 
Putnam and R. R. Bowker. 



Biography in Fictional Form 



THE News Letter issued by the Apprentices' 
Library of Philadelphia, of which Bessie 
Graham is now librarian, records that the 
name of the library in its original meaning is 
now obsolete. The students of library science 
at the William Penn Evening High School have 
been serving as volunteer workers in the library 
in order to get practical experience in library 
work, so that the library again seems to be 
truly an apprentices' library. This News Letter 
tells about the library's timely topics shelf, 
which changes weekly. In November, these 
were the chosen subjects: 

Books on Disarmament Readings for the 
Arms Conference. 

Books of Travel to Literary Places in Eng- 
land. 

Novels Based on the Biography of Actual 
Men and Women, 

The list of biographical novels included : 

Atherton, Gertrude, The Conqueror (Alexan- 
der Hamilton). 



Baicheller, Irving, A Man for the Ages 
(Abraham Lincoln). 

Ervine, St. John, Changing Winds (Rupert 
Brooke). 

Eliot, George, Romola (Savonarola). 

Johnston, Mary, Lewis Rand (Aaron Burr). 

Hewlett, Maurice, Bendish (Byron).

AX ATTRACTIVE VISTA OF BOOKS AXD ILLUSTRATIONS ARRANGED BY BUU.OTK's 
BOOK DEPARTMENT, LOS ANGELES 



Browsing in Bullock's Book 
Corner 

PHAT is the title which a grateful patron 
* gives to two columns of appreciation in the 
Los Angeles Saturday Night of the noon-hour 
pleasures to be found browsing at Bullock's. 

"To find a literary atmosphere in a depart- 
ment store book section is an unusual circum- 
stance, writes the reporter, yet that is the 
achievement of the delightful" corner of Bul- 
lock's, where Miss Foster's book depart- 
ment is. 

"Two weeks ago the sympathetic manage- 
ment gave Miss Foster liberal space on the 
second floor of the seventh street frontage of 
the big tore, which already imparts a private 
Hbrary effect, rather than that reflected by the 
ordinary commercial display of books. This is 
due to the presence of numerous original paint- 
ings of the colored illustrations in the Christ- 
mas books, adult and juvenile, tastefully ar- 
ranged on tables and easels. 

"Carved benches, placed .in sunny niches con- 
:iguous to groups of books, judiciously selected 
>y Miss Foster, add to the attractiveness of the 
ensemble and invite the browser to sit down 
and dip into the contents. Here one may for- 



get the roar of traffic below, the call oi the 
office to return to business duties and thi- pr. ra- 
ise to one's stenographer to be 'back at twa.' 
That pledge was given before the Bullock lure 
was realized. 

"Miss Foster knows her books, and has so 
classified and grouped the collection of current 
novels, histories, essays and standard works, 
that her latest joined assistant may without 
difficulty lead the tentative nurchaser straight 
to the desired goal. Especially well arranged is 
the children's section. 

"Gray walls, with soft gray silk hangings. 
form a soothing background and give the right 
tone to the surroundings. Serenity cf mind is 
an excellent aid to the contemplation of books. 
and not often in a department store can this 
attribute be induced. 

"Miss Foster realizes that the buying public 
will not expect in a department stnrc book sec- 
tion everything that the Los Angeles public li- 
brary, for example, can yield on percniiitorx 
'summons. Her aim has been to keep well 
abreast of the notable works of fiction, ever- 
selling stories and juvenile literature. In this 
way, the ready wants of the multitude arc sup- 
plied, while the more discerning readers, and 
harder to suit, are seldom disappointed."

The Publishers' Weekly 



Good Bookmaking 



NOT all the beautiful volumes that came 
rapidly to the office as the 1921 season 
came to a close could be included in the 
last summary and comment on America's good 
book-making. While the word "gift book" is 
no longer used as a designation of a type of 
volume that reaches its one and only audience 
between Thanksgiving and Christmas, that 
season is the best opportunity for marketing 
handsome volumes in which the investment 
for illustrations and plates has been heavy. 

The Penn Publishing Company has had two 
beautiful volumes with the advantage of Frank 
E. Schoonover's handsome paintings. Perhaps 
no other artist working in the historical field 
comes so near to the Wyeth standard. The 
colored illustrations in Lucy Madison's 
"Lafayette" have been finely reproduced, and 
the head-pieces are equally attractive. The 
book has a type page very suitable to the 
needs of this subject. The Penn Publishing 
Company also provides Schoonover illustrations 
for "Toilers of the Trails" by George Marsh. 
These are in black and white with the ex- 
ception of the frontispiece. 

Detmold's illustrations of animal life have 
always been held in high esteem, and Dodd, 
Mead & Company produced a beautiful volume 
of Fabre's "Book of Insects" with a score or 
more of these beautiful drawings in full color 
and a type page of great attractiveness. 

The new care given in book illustration is 
responsible for the colored drawings of 
"Famous Colonial Houses" by Paul M. Hollis- 
ter (David McKay Company.) These draw- 
ings are by James Preston and illustrate a 
dozen of the beautiful places of our early 
times. His ability to render the architectural 
details and yet give the atmosphere of the 
fine old places gives this book a high standing 
among the illustrated books of the year. 

Besides his edition of "Scottish Chiefs," 
Wyeth produced thru the David McKay Com- 
pany "Rip Van Winkle," some of the drawings 
being in his very best and most successful 
vein. The book has many black and whites as 
well as interesting lining papers. 

A fine example of the best rendering of 
architectural photographs is shown in the 
"Small French Buildings" by Coffin, Polhem- 
us and Worthington, published by Charles 
Scribner's Sons. These photographs have been 
printed in a brown tint, and are as rich and 
deep as a rotogravure in their reproduction. 

An unusual children's book comes from 
Duffield Company, "Gargantua," with illustra- 
tions by Adrien Leroy, reproduced from the 
French edition of a few years back. The full 
page plates are something in the vein of Job's 
famous drawings, and the black and whites 
thickly scattered thru the text are bound to 
give the book added zest for the reader. 

Lovers of the writings of W. H. Hudson 
will be pleased to find a new American edition 
of "The Shepherd's Life" with the delightful 
illustrations of Bernard C. Gotch, which has 



been set up and printed in fhis country by E. 
P. Dutton & Company. The black and white 
drawings and chapter headings are perfectly 
in keeping with the mood of the book. 

Harcourt, Brace & Company have designed 
a very attractive 121110 lor their "Modern Rus- 
sian Poetry" by Deutsch and Yarmolinsky. 
The type selected and page headings are well 
balanced, and the presswork clear and clean. 

An interesting volume of plays is Mac- 
millan's edition of "Four Plays for Dancers" 
by W. B. Yeats. The illustrations and cover 
design are very effective. 

Two attractive volumes of poems are 
"Dreams Out of Darkness'' by Jean Starr 
Untermeyer (Huebsch) and "The Captive Lion 
and Other Poems" by William Henry Davies 
(Yale University Press.) Another fine volume 
from the Yale Press is "Art and Religion" by 
Von Ogden Vogt. This shows the impress of 
Mr. Rollins's masterly hand in the selection 
of types and in the planning of the introduc- 
tory pages. The type being used for the page 
numbering is unusual and effective, being 
placed at the bottom of the page. 

From Fresno, Cal., comes a well designed 
book entitled "A California Pilgrimage," pub- 
lished by private subscription for Louis C. 
Sanford, and printed by Bruce Brough at San 
Francisco. The pages show a fine use of 
Caslon with delicately colored initials and in- 
teresting chapter headings The book would 
be a creditable piece of work for any book 
manufacturer. 

To Alfred Fowler of Kansas City collectors 
and students of the book-plate are indebted for 
a book entitled "Book-plates for Beginners" 
with twentv or thirtv reproductions. As with 
all the books from Mr. Fowler, the typography 
is worthy of the subject being handled. 

Following the beautiful edition of Dante's 
"Inferno," printed by the Updike Press last 
spring for the translator Eleanor Vinton 
Murray, comes another handsome volume con- 
taining all three books of "The Divine 
Comedy," translated by Melville Best Ander- 
son, and printed by the World Book Company 
of Yonkers. The volume is handsomely de- 
signed and beautifully bound in Italian board 
with vellum back. 

Houghton MirHin has made a beautiful book 
out of "Fir Flower Tablets," one of the most 
pleasant and well planned books the recent 
weeks have brought forward. The problem of 
setting a well balanced page from material in 
such broken form was not an easy one, and has 
been carried out with perfect success. The 
binding in red boards with blue back is strik- 
ing and yet in excellent taste. 

A good example of sound book-making for 
a I2mo novel is shown in "The Romantic 
Lady" by Michael Arland, published by Dodd, 
Mead & Company. 

An attractive little book from Knopf is "Lit- 
tle Rays of Moonshine" by A. P. Herbert, well 
planned to meet the style of the contents.

Reminiscences of a Book Scout 

By Joseph Jewett Barton 



WHEN I lived in Brooklyn, Roger Mif- 
flin and I used to take weekly turns doing 
the Ghetto over in Newark, and I believe 
it was he who unconsciously saved me a lot of 
work one day ; perhaps he did not, but somebody 
with a good eye for values, did. 

There used to be a man down on a side street 
who "buys and sells anything and everything," 
and his place looked as tho he lived up to his 
sign. He isn't there now so you needn't start 
for Newark toniglht ; at present he keeps a gro- 
cery store in Waterbury, Conn. 

He was a peculiar cuss, always sat in an old 
chair directly in the door-way and if he didn't 
like your looks or knew you too well, he 
wouldn't move and let you in, but just growl 
that he didn't have anything today that would 
interest you. 

I made a hit with him finally, by purchasing 
a picture he had on the sidewalk out in front, 
at his own price. A fine, cobwebby, dusty bit 
of architecture it was too, the glass looked as 
tho it should be ploughed 'but it was good 
enough for me and besides I wanted to get in- 
side. This was about the sixth trip there and 
I hadn't been thru the door yet. 

Then I asked, "Haven't you any more pic- 
tures," and he said I could look around if I 
wanted to. I looked, and over in a corner be- 
hind a lot of iron beds I saw three soap boxes 
nailed up, that suggested books to me. "What's 
in the boxes," I asked Growly, and he said 
"books," and then I got the boxes opened and 
found that all the good ones were in one box. 
In the other two boxes there wasn't a book 
worth over twenty-five cents at retail ; all fine, 
crisp, clean copies they were, but of absolutely 
no use to me. 

But the one box was like a long, cool drink 
after a hike thru a desert. 

This business of pawing over a lot of Sun- 
day school, theological, middle-aged law, med- 
ical books and cheap fiction when you are look- 
ing for real stuff, gets a little tiresome after 
a While. 

I found Mark Twain's "Jumping Frog," 
New York, 1867, first edition, first issue, with 
the perfect "i" on page 108 ; "Leaves of Grass," 
Boston, 1860-61, with the tinted portrait of the 
author and the orange colored cloth cover, first 
issue of this edition : Valentine's "Manuals oi 
the Common Council, 1845 to 1850 inclusive," 
and I assure you the manuals of those dates, 
except 1850, are pretty desirable books. 

Then there were several firsts of Harte and 
two of Hearn; "Ghombo Zebes," 1885, and 
"Chita," 1889; the rest of the box, some forty 
books, were all quite ordinary, but good sellers.. 

Strange that all the good ones are in one 
box, I thought, wonder what happened, but I 
kept back that query for another day. just got 
an expressman and shipped my box to Brook- 
lyn. The whole transaction, including express 



charges cost me less than six dollars and I 
realized eventually quite a fair day's wages. 

On my next trip to Newark I asked Growly 
Haven t you any good books anywhere, that 
box was pretty fair, but what I want is real 
books, and I will give you a good price for 
them; now stir around and see if you haven't 
some more hidden away." 

My conversation seemed to interest him, and 
he commenced poking around in the corners and 
behind old bureaus and various junk, mum- 
bling to himself all the time, and I was help- 
ing him poke. 

At last he broke into intelligible speech to 
the effect that "A smart Aleck book buyer came 
into my shop last winter and picked out a lot 
of books and put them into a box, and then he 
tried to jew me down on the price and I got 
mad and I wouldn't sell them to him at any 
price." 

I bet Growly talked to me an hour telling 
me about that "smart Aleck feller" and I wasn't 
interested a little bit, but I had to stand and 
listen to it or he'd probably get "mad" at me 
and I'd follow Aleck. 

What I wanted was the box that Aleck had 
packed but we never found it, thtf I suggested 
that he had sold it to somebody else. No! it 
wasn't sold, it \vas around somewhere, because 
he hadn't let any feller wanting books in there 
since he fired Aleck. 

I put in a full day looking over that shop 
and there wasn't another book in it. It finally 
dawned on me that Growly had his number of 
boxes twisted, and there never had been but 
three boxes, and I already had bought Aleck's 
box. 

On subsequent trips I always asked if he had 
found that box yet, but he never had, and could 
not seem to 'understand where it had gone. 

As a decent Christian gentleman I suppose I 
should have given Mifflin half of that box; 
instead I never even mentioned it to him. but 
then again, he had his chance and failed, and 
I certainly earned what I got 



Growly felt so badly about not finding the 
box that a couple of months later, in order to 
square himself and also in consideration of two 
dollars cash in hand for the information, told 
me that a countryman of his had bought two 
truck loads of books the day before and "He 
lives in a flat over on Broome Street, and you 
should drop in on him, but don't tell him I 
sent you." 

I dropped in, and in his dining and sitting 
rooms he had about three tons of books ; where 
they came from I don't know, it doesn't pay 
to be inquisitive when you are trying to buy 
from people of that kind, but they certainly 
were not from a nrivate library, and were the 
queerest mixture T ever saw. 



The Publishers' Weekly 



Our Army of Students 

NEVER has American youth been pound- 
ing so persistently on the doors of the 
colleges, and the reports of registration 
that have come in indicate an increased enroll- 
ment of about 7.1%. The Boston Transcript, 
in commenting on this increased demand for 
educational facilities, gives some interesting 
statistics as to the size of this army of stu- 
dents. 

In a selected list of seventy-four colleges, it 
finds a total of 197,000 students, an average 
of nearly 3,000 per college, ranging from the 
University of California and New York Uni- 
versity, with over 10,000 each, to Gark Uni- 
versity with 200. Of these totals, 57,000 are 
women. Besides this, these same colleges are 
largely interested in extending their facilities 
thru summer schools and extension courses. In 
this one list of colleges there are 73,500 among 
the summer students and 92,200 among the ex- 
tension students. In this latter column the 
University of California has a total of over 
20,000 and the University of Wisconsin over 
18,000. 

The importance of higher education in mak- 
ing lovers and users of books is an obvious 
inference to a book-trade paper, but it is in- 
teresting in noting such figures to realize that 
institutions of higher education are becoming 
more and more conscious that, in order that 
the effect of their work may extend into the 
aduft life of the graduate, courses and lectures 
must 'be so shaped that the student shall see 
that education is a thing to go on for life and 
not an operation to be passed thru and called 
finished. On all Slides one sees efforts of the in- 
structors to connect up courses with practical 
life. There are libraries on every campus and 
a greater variety of use of these libraries than 
ever before. In many cases there are sectional 
libraries so that the student of agriculture or 
architecture or domestic economy visualizes 
books as a part of his or her future career. 

'Side by side with the effort to increase this 
extension of instruction thru books and per- 
sonal reading, should go the appeal of book 
ownership, which, as every book lover knows, 
gives a certain added interest to reading that 
can not be had from anv borrowed book. Prob- 
ably out of the seventy- four colleges whose 
totals have been quoted not more than a score 
are in cities or towns where there are book- 
stores of real cultural possibilities. The move- 
ment for better college town bookshops has 
been well begun, and in many colleges one 
will now find a bookshop not only handling 
the textbooks, which is the conventional work 
of a college town bookstore, but providing the 
browsing ground for increased personal read- 
ing. 

With the experience in hand "lined in these 
shops there should be determined effort on the 
part of those who believe in the Book and who 
know the value of a personal library, to in- 
crease the number of good bookshops in college 
communities. This is so important a point that 



faculties would do well to consider it as the 
thing for them to help brip<r about and not a 
thing to be left to chance. 

In one college community where a bookstore 
was started, a few instructors felt that it 
would be an instrument for diverting students 
from their textbooks and therefore .to be 
promptly discouraged. This same bookstore, 
however, proved its worth and is now appreci- 
ated by the entire institution. A conception of 
a college as a place where certain textbooks 
must be finished to the exclusion of all other 
humanizing and cultural influences will not 
stand analysis, and the colleges not having such 
book centers at hand should give impulse to 
this important movement and it should be 
watched and encouraged as one of the signifi- 
cant movements that will be a marked feature 
in the growth of the book-trade in the next 
few years.

Passing the Word Along 

ANEW effort in the way of increasing book 
sales thru the influence of satisfied readers 
is shown in a card found in copies of William 
George Jordan's new book. This enclosure in 
the form of a post-card reads: 

"I have just finished reading 'The Trusteeship of 
Life.' by William George Jordan, who wrote 
Kingship of Self -Control" It is a big little book, big 
in its fine, sane attitude toward life, fresh in i] 
charm and inspiration and in its individuality. 
is a book to own and to read. It helped me. and 
I want it to help you." . 

Above this paragraph is a place for a fi 
name and below a line for the sender's signa- 
ture. In small type is the information. "Order 
from your bookseller or from the publishers 
Price only $1.25." This plan certainly make 
it easy for a pleased reader to recommend the 
book to a friend with the least trouble.

The Tariff Threat and the Retailers 

The Fordney Bill Would Seriously Cripple Long-Standing Activities 



THE following brief on the Schedules re- 
lating to Books was prepared by Charles 
E. Lauriat Company, Booksellers, Boston, 
and is part of the evidence being considered by 
the Finance Committee of the Senate. 

January 9, 1922. 
To THE COMMITTEE ON FINANCE: 

As a dealer in 'both American and English 
published books, having an established business 
of fifty years' standing, this Company respect- 
fully begs to submit for your consideration a 
few thoughts and a few facts relating to a 
tariff on books. 

This Company deals both in new books, which 
are mostly published in the United States, and 
in old books, fine editions, and rare books, 
which have been published more than twenty 
years, either in the United States or in Eng- 
land. If we sell more fine editions of English 
publications than of American, it is because 
more fine editions haive been published in Eng- 
land than in America. And more have been 
published there because there has been, and 
still is, a greater demand for fine editions in 
England than in this country. No tariff law 
can alter that fact, and the imposition of a 
tariff on books published more than twenty 
years would not cause the publication here of 
any books which would not be published here 
without such a tariff. Nor will introducing the 
uncertainties of American Valuation of books 
increase the amount of printing and binding for 
the American laboring man. 

In closing this introductory statement we 
wish to call attention to the fact that books 
do not compete with each other. The Copy- 
right Law prevents competition between dif- 
ferent editions of the same book there can be 
no rival different editions and books by dif- 
ferent authors, even >if on the same subject, are 
not competitive, but are rather to be considered 
supplemental to each other. The sale of one 
is likely to increase the sale of the other, and 
the sale of both together is likely to be more 
than twice what the sale of either one alone 
would have been if the other had not been pub- 
lished. In other words, the importation of Eng- 
lish books will increase, rather than diminish, 
the sale of American books. 

With this general statement, we pass to the 
details of the matter to which we desire re- 
spectfully to call attention. 

Paragraph 1310 

We respectfully protest against the clause in 
Paragraph 1310 in the proposed tariff, reading; 
"books bound wholly or in part in leather, 
the chief value of which is in the binding, not 
specially provided for, 33 1-3 per centum ad 
valorem ;" not only because the clause is am- 
biguous and difficult of interpretation, but also 
because 33 1-3 per centum ad valorem is a 
higher rate of duty than is necessary for the 
full protection of the American binder. 



A similar clause in the Payne-Aldrich Tariff 
(August 5, 1909, book schedule, No. 415) read 
as follows: 

"... all the foregoing wholly or in chief 
value of paper," made the assessment for duty 
so difficult of determination that an appeal was 
made for a Treasury Decision and T. D. 30,326 
was rendered February 4, 1910, in which the 
Department practically instructed appraiseri to 
ignore this clause entirely, as it was not the 
intention of Congress to raise the duty on 
books. 

In the present Underwood Tariff, in Para- 
graph 337, the same words were originally 
written in; "all the foregoing wholly or in 
chief value of paper," but before the enact- 
ment of the bill, the words were stricken out, 
as you will see by reading Paragraph 329. 

In regard to the rate of "33 1-3 per centum 
ad valorem," on books, "bound wholly or in 
part in leather," we would say that we pre- 
sent the following evidence to show why this 
rate of duty is unnecessarily high. 

The Scroll Club Bindery, 232 East i25th 
Street, New York, have issued a "Trade 
Price List," dated October 1921, on which 
their price for binding a book 10 x 7 in 
"half Erench levant, gilt top, two line panel 
with a little tooling, gold line on sides," is 
$540. 

Robert Riviere & Son, 29 Heddon Street, 
Regent Street, London on their "Trade Price 
List," dated September 12, 1921, quote the 
price of binding a book 10 x (t l /t in "half 
levant, two or three line panel and center, 
gold lines on sides, 24/-." At 21 cents to 
the shilling, which is the present rate of ex- 
change, and which will probably show a 
gradual advance, rather than decline, makes 
the binding cost $5.04. 

On the Scroll Club Bindery price list, a 
book bound in "full French levant, gilt top, 
two line panel with a little tooling on the 
back and sides, gold border inside, gold roll 
on edges," size 10 x 7, costs $I5-5O- 

On Riviere & Son's price list, a book bound 
in "full levant, two or three panel and center, 
gold line on sides, inside and edges." size 10 
x 6 l / 2 , costs 66/ , or at 21 cents to the 
shilling, $13.86. 

On the Scroll Club Bindery price list, the 
cost of "Solander Cases" (such cases are 
made to hold books which the collector wishes 
to retain in the original binding), 'Trench 
levant, Jansen finish," (meaning no gold tool- 
ing on the back), is $16.00. 

On Riviere & Son's price list, the cost < 
"Pull-off Cases" (known in this country 
as Solander Cases), "full levant plain 
(called in this country Jansen finish), c 
75/3 or at 21 cents to the shilling, $15 75- 
The above figures show that a 15 Pf rcent ad 
valorem duty, as is the present tariff, it 
the American binder ample protection from

composition with British binders. A higher 
tariff would unduly and unfairly increase the 
price of such books, without any compensating 
benefits. 

We do not quote prices from French binders, 
as they have not yet reestablished their binding 
business to anything like pre-war quality and 
standing. German leather binders were never 
competitors of American binders. 

As proof that the wages in English binderies, 
of men and women, have advanced over 200 
percent above pre-war level, we quote the fol- 
lowing wages paid in the bindery of W. Root 
& Son, 29 Eagle Street, Holborn, London, 
which is a typical British workshop and in 
which the same wages are paid as in all shops 
doing binding in leather : 
Minimum for Men, 

pre-war 35/ per week 

Minimum for Women, 
pre-war I3/ per week 



48/- 
Minimum for Men, 

as of August 10, 1921 . TOO/ per week 
Minimum for Women, 

as of August 10, 1921. 5 1/ per week 



These wages are for a 48-hour week, and are 
minimum wages paid. All workmen and work- 
women after one year receive an increased 
wage. It is therefore clear that the American 
binders have little to fear from the competition 
of low wages abroad, as wages there are now 
about the same as wages here in the book bind- 
ing trade. 

We would therefore suggest that Paragraph 
329 of the present tariff be retained, "books 
of all kinds, bound or unbound, including blank 
books, slate books, and pamphlets, engravings, 
photographs, etchings, maps, charts, music in 
books or sheets, and printed matter, all the 
foregoing and not specially provided for in 
this section, 15 per centum ad valorem," etc. 

"American Valuation" as Affecting Books 

We wish to protest against Section 402 
commonly referred to as the American Valua- 
tion clause, as impractical, even impossible, as 
applied to 'books. Not only do books not com- 
pete with one another, as above pointed out, but 
the costs that enter into the manufacture of 
two books, even on the same subject, are never 
the same. They vary, commencing with the 
royalty paid to the author, thru the various 
parts of the manufacture of the book, such as 
paper, printing, illustrations, binding, etc., etc., 
so that it would be impossible to compare the 
imported book with any other, and so there 
could be found no "comparable and competi- 
tive product of the United States." 

For example, the book by Captain Dickinson, 
entitled, "Big Game Shooting on the Equator ; 
A Sportsman's Experiences in East Africa," 
bears no relation to Roosevelt's "African Game 
Trails," except so far as they each deal with 
big game hunting in Africa. 

The former book was published in England 



some years ago, but after a fair sale in Eng- 
land, it was there offered at a much reduced 
price from that at which it was published. It 
was published at i6/ and offered by the pub- 
lishers, to close out the copies that were not 
sold, at 5/6. At this price it was an attractive 
purchase to many American firms and they 
bought it and paid duty on that price, inasmuch 
as the book had some interest to collectors in- 
terested in big game hunting. 

The importing of Captain Dickinson's book 
in no way interferes with the sale of Colonel 
Roosevelt's book. The latter wholesales for 
$3.84, and if duty were charged at this rate 
on Dickinson's book, it would compel a sales 
price that would be too high to appeal to the 
American buyer. No bookseller could force the 
Dickinson book on a customer asking for the 
Roosevelt book, but sales of the Dickinson 
book would probably increase sales of the 
Roosevelt book. In this way the American in- 
dustry would be benefitted by the importation 
of such books, and the application of the pro- 
posed American Valuation would defeat its own 
purpose, so far as books are concerned. 

If for the benefit of the manufacturing of 
certain other merchandise, the American Valu- 
ation clause must stand, there should be written 
into it a clause that would "exempt books." 

The above example of Captain Dickinson's 
book is an instance of the offering by publishers 
of so-called "remainders," by which we mean 
the unsold stock of books left on hand after 
the home market has Seen fully satisfied. Both 
English and American publishers follow this 
plan and dispose of such remainders at a price 
that will effect a complete clean-up. 

These English remainders are sold at a frac- 
tion of the publication price to booksellers and 
by them to the public, in most cases at less 
than one half the price which the book would 
have originally cost the buyer to import. If 
any other than a small ad valorem duty based 
upon the cost to us should be assessed, this 
large and important part of their business 
would 'be ruined ; and the business of American 
publishers would not be thereby increased, for 
none of these books are published in America, 
and the sale of books published here would not 
be increased, but probably decreased. 

We respectfully submit that from no point 
of view is American Valuation of books de- 
sirable. It would be not only difficult and un- 
fair in administration, but in certain cases it 
would be disastrous to long established and 
legitimate businesses. It is impossible to show 
that it would benefit anybody, but it is clear 
that it would deprive many readers of an op- 
portunity to obtain excellent books at a low 
price. 

Copyright Protection 

In drafting Tariff provisions relating to 
books, a matter which should always be taken 
into consideration is the Copyright Law. No 
foreign made 'book which has been copyrighted 
in the United States can be imported into this 
country except under the provision which per- 
mits of the bringing in of "one copy at one 
time, for individual use and not for sale," ex- 



January 21, 1922 



cept to public libraries and this applies to 
"remainders" as well as to all new books. 
(See Copyright Law, as amended by the Act 
of August 24, 1912, Page 30, Section 31, Para- 
graph D, ",First"). 

Every prominent new book published in Eng- 
land is offered to an American buyer to see 
if he will take it for the American market and 
either copyright it under the Law, or import 
a few hundred copies for the American mar- 
ket. A copy of the book is sent to the pros- 
pective American buyer and if he decides it 
would have a sufficient sale in America to 
warrant the issuing of an addition of 2000 or 
3000 copies, he buys and copyrights it, and 
then sets up, prints and binds the book in this 
country, thereby giving full employment to 
the American paper manufacturer, type-setter, 
printer and binder. 

Having complied with the copyright law, it 
excludes the possibility of any foreign edition 
of this book ever being imported into this coun- 
try for sale no matter how low the price abroad 
may be. 

This Copyright Law, operating in conjunction 
with the tariff rate, affords real protection to 
the American book industry. The tariff situa- 
tion might be quite different if there were no 
Copyright Law. But having that Law. the 
tariff rate, in theory and in practice, should be 
fixed at the lowest point consistent with insur- 
ing that the great bulk of the books purchased 
here shall be published here. If the tariff is 
lower than this point, then importations from 
abroad will be excessive and the industry will 
not be receiving its fair protection. If higher, 
then books which have only a small sale here, 
but which may be very valuable from an edu- 
cational, literary or scientific point of view, and 
so be very desirable, will cost an undue amount. 
In that case, the tariff would operate unfavor- 
ably to 'the Nation, and even the publishing 
business would not benefit. 

It is for the Congress to judge as to just 
where the theoretically correct paint should be 
fixed. For many years it has stood at 15% 
on all 'books published within twenty years. 

Is there any evidence whatever that too many 
books are being imported? Is it not true that 
practically every book which has any con- 
siderable sale in this country is also printed and 
bound in this country? 

We respectfully submit that a duty of i$% 
on books published abroad within twenty years 
has been shown by long experience to be high 
enough to afford all reasonable and proper pro- 
tection to the publishers and workers of this 
country. And we submit that any increase of 
duty will not increase the business of publish- 
ing, but will amount to a tax on learning, to the 
detriment of the country. 

Elimination of Free List 
We now pass to another matter which is of 

vital importance to the book-trade. Book: 

published within twenty years are not referred 

to in this part of this brief. 
Under the Bill as passed by the House, 

books published more than twenty years are 



121 



not included in the Free List, altho such books 
have been free of duty during practically the 
whole period that our business has been es- 
tablished. The admission of such books Duty 
Free has done much to stimulate the reading 
of books in this country and the assembling of 
valuable collections of books which have !*en 
of great educational value to the American stu- 
dent and public. 

The American workman and publisher have 
lost nothing by the importing Duty Free of 
books printed over twenty years, for not one 
such book in a thousand would be repuWished 
in this country, no matter how high the tariff 
were. The protection that would be afforded by 
the proposed change would be none whatever, 
while the injury to those who deal in old books 
and to those who buy them would be very 
great. 

In the case of Old and Rare books, first edi- 
tions and books whose principal value is their 
historical or literary association, the imposition 
of a duty is nothing less than absurd. 

For example, the Folio Shakespeare, pub- 
lished in 1632, is of great value and intcVest to 
a book collector and its importation into this 
country at a value of, say, 500 in no way af- 
fects the American workman of today; and 
the duty on this book would in no way benefit 
the workman's position, and would do much to 
discourage the forming of private educational 
libraries in this country. 

Is there any excuse whatever for the im- 
position of a duty on books more than twenty 
years old? 

The only claim of a reason for the proposed 
change that has ever been suggested to the 
writer is that the repairing or rebinding abroad 
within twenty years of books more than twenty 
years old, and the importation of such re- 
paired or rebound books Duty Free works a 
detriment to the American binder. 

It is worth while for your Committee, and 
for the Congress, to examine this claim care- 
fully, and to determine, before imposing such 
a duty, whether the benefits to be received by 
the American binder are sufficient to outweigh 
the injury which will be done to those who have 
built up a business in old books and to those 
who desire to purchase them for their libraries. 
It is true that a portion of the old books 
which are imported have been rebound within 
twenty years. And to this extent there .is 
basis in fact for the argument presented. 

But we submit that if a duty were jtnpos 
on old books it would bring very little addi- 
tional work to American binders. It woulc 
either keep the books out of the country en- 
tirely or it would increase their price by t 
amount of the duty; and in either case th< 
American binder would not get the work. Wit] 
old books on the free list the American bindei 
now gets a portion of the rebindm*. 
position of a duty would cut down what 1 
now getting, because fewer old books ' 
quire rebinding would be imported. 

It is not by the imposition of a duty on c 
books that the American binder will be^t 
his own interests. His interests will best 1 



122 



The Publishers' Weekly 



served by improving his skill and learning to 
bind books in an artistic manner comparable 
with the binders of England and France. The 
binder in this country lias never apprenticed 
himself to his work for as many years as has 
Che workman abroad. 

It is true that there has never been the large 
public demand here for extra leather bindings 
and highly artistic work that there has been 
abroad. But it is also true that in the few 
cases where binders have really equipped them- 
selves to do high class work, they have been 
successiul. As an example of such binders we 
beg leave to mention Miss Sears of Boston and 
Miss Lahey of New York. Both have all they 
can do from American clients, and both are 
successful. Another example is Mr. Kalaba, of 
Stikeman & Company, 114 West 32nd Street, 
New York City, who has worked himself up 
from the ordinary commercial binding to a 
point where he does the finest of full levant 
work, and he finds his time fully occupied with 
work given him by American patrons. 

The point that we desare to make is that the 
Tariff must not 'be used as a screen for incom- 
petence at the expense of legitimate importing 
businesses and at the expense of book lovers 
and those who desire to purchase artistically 
bound books at a reasonable price. 

There is no doubt that if the American work- 
man produces an equal quality of binding, the 
work will come to him. It lies rather with the 
man's own initiative and ability, than by the 
protection of a tariff duty on old books. 

It has been suggested that the difficulty might 
be overcome by placing all books printed more 
than twenty years on the free list, with a pro- 
viso that a duty be imposed upon bindings which 
were placed on such books wdthin the twenty 
year period. 

Such a proposal sounds logical and reason^ 
able, but if adopted infinite confusion is sure 
<to arise, because no man can tell, by looking at 
a binding, how long it has been on the book. 

For example, we have in our stock a set of 
Macaulay's Works, in 13 volumes, print- 
ed, according to the date on the title page, in 
1849- 

Somewhere in the period between the print- 
ing of the book in 1849 and the current year, 
this set -was rebound for the former owner in 
full tree calf by Riviere & Son of London. The 
set has been kept in a private library, and pre- 
sumably .behind glass doors, and it is as fresh 
as the day it was bound 

This book was imported last year, and, by 
the date on the title page, it was passed Duty 
Free, as having been printed and bound over 
twenty years. We recently showed this book 
to the appraiser in Boston, and asked him, if 
it came before him with the proviso as above 
in the tariff, at what period he would assume 
the binding to have been done. 

He frankly told us he could not tell whether 
it had been bound five years or twenty-five 
years, and as he was working for the United 
States government, he would naturally give the 
Government the benefit of tihe doubt, and 
assess duty on the book, as having been bound 



less than twenty years, and it would then be up 
to the importer to prove to. the contrary. This 
is something it would be utterly impossible to 
do. No importer could take an oath as to when 
the book was bound. 

Thousands of similarly bound books are im- 
ported by the book trade of America on the as- 
sumption that the book, or sets, will be passed 
as an entirety by the date on the title page. 
Should this not continue to be the custom, as 
it has been under the various previous tariffs, 
it would throw the importing of such books 
into endless confusion and cause no end of 
protest and very materially injure the trade 
to a great deal larger extent than the value of 
the revenue thereby collected, and to a much 
greater extent than the protection thus afforded 
would benefit the binders of this country. 

It seems to us that the provision covering the 
duty, on any and all books, should be so clearly 
defined that the importer should not be at the 
mercy of a "guess" of the appraiser. 

We therefore submit that there should be no 
duty on books printed more than twenty years, 
even if bound more recently. Such a duty not 
only would irreparably injure the importing 
business without any 'benefit to the home in- 
dustry, but it would be contrary to the highest 
interest of the country as being a tax on study 
and learning. And we further submit that if it 
were attempted to impose a duty on the recent 
bindings on old books, there would be endless 
administrative confusion and unfairness by rea- 
son of uncertainty, without any corresponding 
benefit to the binding trade of this country. 

Foreign-Language Books 

We also hope that "books and pamphlets 
printed wholly or chiefly in languages other 
than English" will be put back in the Duty 
Free part of the Tariff. 

Books in foreign languages do much for the 
educational side of the American foreign citi- 
zen, and as practically no books are printed in 
a foreign language in this country, the import- 
ing of such books works no hardship on Ameri- 
can labor. 
All of which is respectfully presented.

Bookish Greetings 

THE Christmas card that Gabriel Wells, New 
York dealer in rare books, sent to his 
friends seems particularly applicable in its senti- 
ments to the 1922 situation in the book-trade : 
"All men are born different and dependent. 
Thru cooperation they become fraternal and 
free. Cooperation <is that which transforms the 
razv material of animal existence into the fine 
product of human life. If competition is the 
life of business, cooperation is the business of 
life"

In the Field of the Retailer 



The Bookshop Atmosphere 

ONE of the many explanations that have 
been made of the present prosperity and 
increased interest in the small bookshop is 
contained in an article by Amy Bonner that 
appeared in the Times Book Review. 

"Now that the famous old coffee houses are 
no more, might not one speak of their mantle 
as having descended upon the quaint little book- 
shop of to-day, where book lover and littera- 
teur, scholar and raconteur, author and, aye, 
columnist now gather to partake of the de- 
lectable feasts of discourse and of many minds? 
The genial bookseller is mine host, and, altho 
the sanded floor, the buxom daughter flourish- 
ing in and out between spotless tables, and, 
alas ! the steaming bowj are now lacking, dis- 
cussions nevertheless wax bright and scintil- 
lating, until midnight often, when the 'kobold' 
and the cat are supposed to arise, 'to prowl 
among the books,' as a delightful old book plate 
has it." 

There is a good deal of truth in this sugges- 
tion, and, as the bookshop manager becomes 
more and more widely acquainted and better 
able to serve as a distributing point for ideas 
and enthusiasms, so is he or she more and more 
likely to have in the bookshop aisles people who 
by genius and ability can be appropriately com- 
pared to the famous habitues of London's old 
coffee house. Certainly there could be no better 
place in which to develop this atmosphere of 
friendly interchange.

IN a recent number of the Burrows Brothers 
Breeze, James Soutar, Manager of the Book 
Department, on his page "Observed and Over- 
heard," notes the following: 

Overheard: During photographing of the

be kept that way without having the firm go 
to the expense of taking pictures again. Let's 
try. 



Overheard: A salesman directing a customer 
to another salesperson for a twenty-five cent 
map. A little salesmanship often increases 
the sale to a ten dollar wall map. Don't shirk 
small sales. 

Observed: Many customers being offered 
nothing but the very latest fiction. Suggest 
some not so recent and avoid their getting 
into a special sale later. This helps boost 
the department profits. 

Observed: Boys in the basement opening 
boxes with the hammer. Use a nail puller 
as many of the cases are resold. Morris, take 
heed. 

Observed: That "sales-grabbing" is becom- 
ing more noticeable . It spoils the morale of 
the department and is not appreciated by cus- 
tomers. Avoid it. 

Observed: That sales rivalry in the book de- 
partment is at fever heat. Don't let it inter- 
fere with service to the customer.

"Miss Bessie Graham of Philadelphia, 
opened a school for Booksellers in N. Y. on 
January 6. This was apparently the inspira- 
tion of the following verses we have just 
received," writes Christopher Morley in the 
New York Evening Post : 

"I asked her for 'Three Soldiers,' 
She gave me 'Soldiers Three.' 
The vastness of the difference 
Was one she could not see. 

"I sought 'King Cole' by letter, 
And 'King Coal' came instead: 
She thought they were the same thing, 
'For they sound alike,' she said. 

" 'Rich Relatives' I phoned for, 
'Poor Relations' came wfth care. 
She saw no choice between them, 
So I buy my books elsewhere."

To Read Before You Die 

THERE is always a place for another list 
of best books. Upton Sinclair has, in 
"The Book of Life," chosen the thirty-two 
books which we should all read before we die. 
"Do not let the world cheat you out of your 
chance," he says. This is the list: 



widespread feeling even among the admirers 
of Wells that 'Joan and Peter' is too long 
and too didactic. And yet we would just as 
soon die for this one as any other novel of 
Wells. It is almost our favorite and seems 
to us to contain not only an absorbing story, 
but the best discussion of education which 
was ever printed. The second best which we

Jack London: The Sea Wolf, The Call of the

"However, to non-Wellsians, if there are 
any such, we suggest Tono Bungay' as a 
good starting point. This is rather generally 
ranked as the best of his novels. To us he 
has always seemed to tower over all other

Heywood Broun quotes the list 
in his column in the New York 
World and disagrees with some of its details. 

"In Upton Sinclair's list of thirty-two 'must' 
books, six volumes of H. G. Wells are included. 
According to our way of thinking, six in a 
list of thirty-two is by no means too large 
a representation for Wells, but we disagree 
most heartily with Sinclair's selection. We 
would keep onlv one of the six books which 
he mentions. His list is largely drawn from 
the early days of Wells, when he was given 
over to pseudo-scientific novels. These do not 
seem to us nearly as important as most of his 
later work. 'An Outline of History* belongs 
at the top of any recommended list of his 
books. In our opinion, the other five ought to 
be 'Joan and Peter,' 'The Research Magnifi- 
cent,' 'Tono Bungay,' 'The History of Mr. 
Polly' and The New Machiavelli.' Perhaps 
we would be tempted into extending the list 
to seven because it almost breaks our heart 
to throw out 'Love and Mr,, Lewisham.' 

"Concerning some of the. books on our list 
we may have to fight. There seems to be a

Books on Europe 

THE announcement of the Conference at 
Genoa in March, which is to include at least 
twenty European countries as well as the 
United States, means that there will be an 
increased interest in books on present European 
conditions, especially on the economic facts and 
prospects. In the minds of many, this Con- 
ference is even more important than that which 
is closing at Washington, and the issues at stake 
will touch the interest of every country and 
especially the intimate interest of every busi- 
ness man in this country. For this reason, if 
for no other, J:he demand for accurate and 
thoroly digested information will be insistent, 
and such material can now. he found in books 
and should be on the prominent counters of 
every store.

Editor, PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY : 

Owing to a very serious "knock over," by 
an automobile I have been for this last six

three weeks before I can leave the hospital,

Charleston, S. C., Jan. 10, 1922. 
liditor, PL-BLI>HERS' WEEKLY: 

We note from your current issue that you 
are celebrating the fiftieth year of your exis- 
tence. 

The writer has been a constant subscriber 
and consistent reader of your valuable Imir- 
nal for thirty-three years, and has found it a 
great aid and inspiration in his \\..rk 
bookseller. 

Yours truly, 

C. L. Legerton. 
Legerton & Co., Inc. 

A Text Book Center 

BARNES & NOBLE, Inc.. successors to 
Hinds & Noble, have just signed a ten year 
lease for a large second floor at 74-76 Fifth 
Avenue, on the north side of Thirteenth Street, 
which has an L extending to Thirteenth Street, 
giving them excellent shipping facilities. They 
will move into their new store about February i. 

As their building is almost next door to the 
houses of Ginn & Company and Marmillan 
Company, and is close to the American Book 
Company, Scott Foresman, Newson & Com- 
pany, Hinds, Hayden & Eldredge, and Milton 
Bradley, the decision of Barnes & Noble to 
locate there seems to reflect a tendency of the 
text-book publishers to concentrate near this 
point. 

It is interesting to note that this house has 
moved but once in 35 years. The business 
which was established by Arthur Hinds, later 
joined by G. Clifford Noble was carried on in 
Cooper Institute for 15 years and has been at 
31-35 West Fifteenth Street, New York City 
for the past 20 years. 

"Antiques" 

A HANDSOME magazine for colU-rt..rv 
under fhe title of Antiques* has just 
been launched in Boston, with offices at 683 At- 
lantic Avenue. The publishers design it for 
those "who find interest in times past and in the 
articles of daily use and adornment devised by 
the forefathers." The initial number shows an 
extremely handsome format, amply illustrated, 
and among the articles is one by George H 
gent on "Books, Old and Rare." The publishers 
are also conducting a Book Department and 
have a full-page list of current books on furni- 
ture, china, silver and on other subjects of di- 
rect interest to collectors.

The Kent Memorial Library of Suffield, 
Mass., has lately come into the possesssion of a 
complete file of The Impartial Herald, pub- 
lished in Suffield toward the end of the eight- 
eenth century. The paper appears to be un- 
known to bibliographers and this file is probably 
unique. 

Rare Americana, including early almanacs,

Sometime since Albert E. Gallatin wrote an 
essay on "Modern Fine Printing in America," 
inspired by the exhibition of fine printing under 
the auspices of the American Art Institute in 
1920, which has recently been privately printed. 
Writing of Bruce Rogers he says : 

"No printer has shown as great versatility 
and variety in his work as has Mr. Bruce Rog- 
ers. Quite different in format are the ninety- 
seven volumes designed by Mr. Rogers up to 
1916, which are listed in one of the publications 
of the Carteret Book Club of Newark. Design- 
ing his own types, as many printers did until 
the seventeenth century (and cut their punches 
as well), drawing or engraving his own initial 
letters and headpieces, designing his bindings, 
in addition to laying out his books, the volumes 
of Mr. Rogers are as distinctive as those print- 
ed at the Kelmscott, Doves and other English 
presses. What Mr. Rogers has done, however, 
is a far greater achievement than that accom- 
plished by any other of these presses : for one 
thing, and this is an important one, his books 
are meant to be read and are not merely objets 
d'art. Mr. Rogers' volumes range all the way 
from a large folio, with illuminated roundels 
inspired by a thirteenth century manuscript, to 
a three-volume edition of Montaigne's "Essays," 
in folio, the "History of Oliver and Arthur." 
set in black letter, to a diminutive edition of 
"Ecclesiastes." Other volumes include an elab- 
orate book on Geoffrey Tory, an extremely 
beautiful edition of Chaucer's "Parlement of 
Foules," printed in black, red and blue, with 
gold initials, and an altogether delightful volume 
entitled "Franklin and His Press at Passy." 
which has been printed for the Grolier Club. 
Every one of these books is distinguished for 
the technical excellence of its layout; the two 



pages are properly considered as being a unit, 
the margins are of correct and pleasing propor- 
tions, the type is always clear and of the right 
size for the page, the composition is faultless, 
and the decorations are always suitable and 
form an integral part of the whole." 

A. W. Pollard of the British Museum some- 
time ago declared that Mr. Rogers was the 
"most vital force in modern typography" and 
wrote about his work quite as appreciatively as 
Mr. Gallatin. It is the "versatility," practical 
beauty and vital force" of his bookmaking 
that is the secret of his wide recognition and 
growing popularity among booklovers and col- 
lectors. The books printed by him have been 
steadily increasing in value for several years. 
Based upon real merit, and not a mere fashion, 
the collectors of Mr. Rogers' books are sure to 
grow in numbers among all who care for beau- 
tiful and appropriate typography.

SEVEN YEARS OF A DIPLOMATIST'S LIFE 
IN THE STORM CENTRE OF EUROPE 



SECRETS OF THE BALKANS 

By CHARLES J. VOPICKA 

UNITED STATES ENVOY EXTRAORDINARY AND MINISTER PLENIPOTENTIARY 
TO ROUMANIA, SERBIA AND BULGARIA, 1913-1920 



A RARE CONTRIBUTION 
TO THE ANNALS OF THE, WORLD WAR 

FOR five years Mr. Vopicka upheld the honor of his country and, as one 
after another of the powers were drawn into the maelstrom, he assumed the 
responsibilities of their legations and consulates until at one time he was 
representing the interests of eight nations, the United States, Roumania, 
Germany, Turkey, England, Russia, Italy and Serbia. How he maintained 
the difficulties of his position, and how he worked always for right and justice 
is told in these pages.

STEPHEN FRENCH WHITMAN'S NOVEL 



SACRIFICE 



The word is quickly spreading that Whitman's 
"Sacrifice" will be the big adventure novel of 
the day. It possesses all the qualities of 
popular interest and entertainment that sell a 
novel to the limit. Readers (and reviewers!) 
of adventure and romance will thrill to the 
colorful glamor of its story of a woman who 
could sacrifice all to love. They will find the 
exquisite style in which it is written not only 
unusual in romances of adventure but also 
giving it true literary significance. 
Ready early in February 

"Sacrifice" can be called with no hesitancy a sure fire best seller. Sell it 
to the men who want the excitement of adventure, of strong, virile 
romance; sell it to the women whose hearts will follow the beautiful, 
society heroine in her thrilling pursuit of happiness, her undergoing of 
exotic dangers in the hope of finding her love.

STEPHEN 
GRAHAM 




All too infrequently appears a man who can live and mix intimately with foreign 
peoples and then accurately record his impressions in writing. Frederick O'Brien 
can do this ; Stephen Graham can. Attracted by the spirit of Russian literature 
Graham once gave up his London home to take his chances among the Russian 
peasants and students. He has lived in little Russia and Moscow, has tramped 
in the Caucasus and the Crimea, in the Ural Mountains, in the Far North of 
Russia. He has accompanied the peasant pilgrims from Russia to Jerusalem; 
with immigrants from Russia to America he has crossed the Atlantic in the steer- 
age, has tramped from New York to Chicago and the farms of the West. Central 

Asia, Egypt, the Balkans, Norway, Georgia have seen 
this tramper of the world, curious of the peoples, their 
habits of mind, their daily habits of life. In the war 
he served as private in the 2nd Bt. Scots Guards. All 
of his adventurings have been narrated in very read- 
able and absorbingly interesting books, among them, 
"A Vagabond in the Caucasus," "The Way of Martha 
and the Way of Mary," "Private in the Guards." 

EUROPE WHITHER BOUND? is Stephen Graham's new 
book. Than him no one could ibe found better able to feel 
the pulse of Europe today and tell what conditions abroad 
really are. He visited in succession every one of the con- 
tinental capitals, and tells in delightful chapters the things 
we Americans most wonder about. What frame of mind 
is England's, France's, Italy's. Germany's. Greece's and the 
Balkans' today? Exactly what are France's intentions? What 
is seen in the streets of Vienna? People want to know theafe 
things. The Graham book is of surpassing timeliness. In 
addition, it is very good reading. Octavo. $2.00 net.

Lord Frederic Hamilton 

eLord Frederic Hamilton is "that jolly old aristocrat" who 
has been everywhere, met everyone and who knows all the 
stories. Inspired to reminiscence by the wealth of his per- 
-U sonal experiences he last year wrote "The Vanished Pomps 
of Yesterday." It is not often that candor goes so far in 
description of the intimate details of a very brilliant and 
alluring society. So great was this book's success that Lord 
Hamilton turned to his youth, taking the muser's privilege 
of jumping from continent to continent. This he called 
"The Days Before Yesterday." Now the third volume, 
"Here, There and Everywhere," filled with the humor and 
frankness which makes his personal experiences and keen 
observation a fascinating panorama of affairs the world 
over, has taken the public by storm.

dominant figure among the women writing fiction there to-day. With 
each successive novel she has shown her steady growth in power. 

A CHALLENGE TO SIRIUS 

was a story of an Englishman's experience in the Southern States in the middle 
sixties, and if it jarred American traditions of the Civil War it was wonderfully 
illuminating of the impressions current in England during that struggle. 

TAMARISK TOWN 

is the story of a man who, 'with a joy that approaches the divine, creates a town 
and then finds himself torn between his love for the work of his hands, and his 
love for a woman who dislikes the place, and can not understand its meaning for 
him. As H. W. Boynton put it "The tale has magic of style and of mood. . . 
the glamour of true story-telling." 

THE FOUR ROADS 

is the story of what war meant to Sussex, one of the strongest, finest pictures 
interpreting rural England which the war produced. It epitomized a whole 
country's war time atmosphere. 

GREEN APPLE HARVEST 

Here, said The Literary Review, she has achieved "greater power, a more genuine 
maturity than she has ever shown before," noting also, "the uncanny manner in 
which Miss Kaye Smith analyzes the masculine mind, the vivid reality of her scenes 
about which women as a rule know nothing or little." It is rare," said The 
Tribune, "to find a book that brings at once the great and little gifts of beauty." 

Her Latest Novel is also her Best 

Joanna Godden 

The story of a young woman who, inheriting a farm, proceeds to manage it 
according to her also inherited ability, regardless of her neighbors' views as to 
woman's place and man's superior wisdom in farming at least. At last, she 
has turned her splendid powers of analysis upon a woman and has produced a 
story that is far and away her best.

A Book on Russia That 75 Selling 

Albert Rhys Williams* "Through the Russian Revolution'* is enjoying 
unprecedented sales because it is not "just another Russian book." 
Floyd Dell calls it, " The book of the Russian Revolution.** The NewYork 
Tribune says, "This is a colorful book in more senses of the word than 
one. In the first place, it is illustrated with a number of Soviet posters, 
excellently reproduced in color. Then the author's style is only a little 
less brilliant than the flaming posters with which he illustrated his work.**

AFTER THE WAR 

London - Paris - Rome - Athens - Prague 
Vienna - Budapest - Bucharest - Berlin 
Sofia - Coblenz - New York - Washington 




Few recent books have created the sensation 
of Colonel Repington's FIRST WORLD WAR 
and his new book will, we believe, be more 
widely enjoyed. During the period covered 
by this continuation of his diary, Colonel 
Repington visited the capitals of the Western 
world and talked with leading statesmen and 
men of affairs in each country. His picture 
of the world today is complete and illuminat- 
ing beyond the power of any other man to 
paint, and is lightened throughout with the 
inexhaustible fund of anecdotes and gossip 
that were so great a feature in the popular- 
ity of its predecessor. The volume ends with 
a first-hand account of the Washington Con- 
ference and a description of American scenes 
and celebrities, written with all the frankness 
and intimacy for which the author is famous. 

Colonel Repington will start an extensive and widely advertis- 
ed American lecture tour early in February. His new volume 
is sure to occasion a deluge of publicity in the press, and this, 
combined with the lecture engagements, should easily make it 
the most talked of book of the spring.

BEYOND SHANGHAI 

By HAROLD SPEAKMAN 

This exceedingly charming "look in" upon China is unique because it is "different." The author 
made a solemn compact with himself not to attempt to describe, sketch, or otherwise molest the 
imperial palaces at Peking, but to see as much as he could of the Chinese people themselves in 
their humblest and most intimate surroundings, to live alone with the Chines* and to eat their 
food. And this he did, and the fruitage of his unusual experiences is given in this interesting book, 
embellished by eight illustrations in color from paintings made on the spot by the author. In Press.

FYODOR DOSTOYEVSKY 

By Aimee Dostoyevsky 

The definitive biography of the great Russian for which 
his ever increasing public has been impatiently waiting. 

William Lyon Phelps (who is getting behind the book) 
says: 

"The daughter of the great Russian novelist, Dostoyevsky, has written 
a romantic and highly interesting biography of her father. . . .To those 
who have read Dostoyevsky's novels these new and intimate revelations 
will be of keen interest, and even if one has never read any of the novels, 
this biography is written in such a manner as to hold the attention of the 
reader from beginning to end." 

And in a two column review in the London Times Lit- 
erary Supplement can be found such quotations as the follow- 
ing: 

"The story of Dostoyevsky's life as told by his daughter in this 
volume is one of enthralling interest. . . . The book belongs to literature 
and one lays it down with a sense of deep gratitude to the writer, whose 
love and sympathy, combined with her admirable gift, have given us so 
moving a revelation of the mind and character of a great artist."

TWENTY-THREE years ago Elbert Hubbard 
wrote "A Message to Garcia." It was the story of 
a man who without asking what or why; without 
alibis or excuses went ahead and did the 'impossible. 
The book was translated into every modern language; 
millions of copies have been sold. 

Now, out of the hardest selling year in this generation there comes 
another "message." It is a book not written by a famous author ; it is written 
by th'e fifty-one salesmen who made the best sales under the hardest condi- 
tions in 1921. In their own words they tell just how they put thinking into 
selling and made the orders come through. 

No salesman can read this book without having the results show in his 
own personal production. Salesmanagers will recognize that something has 
happened to the men who have digested its message. It is called 

Bare-Handed Selling 

A BOOK OF TRUE SALES EXPERIENCES, WITH A PERSONAL MESSAGE

a book on salesmanship it is a book on selling; it is not an exposition of 
theory it is a thrilling recital of actual experience told by the men who faced 
the problem, and won. It is a book of 

Tools, not rules 

A living story, in one compact little volume, of the romance of selling by 
men who love their work. Booksellers, themselves, will find much in this book 
directly applicable to their selling problems. The demand for Bare-Handed

FOUNDED BY F. LEYPOLDT

"/ hold every man a debtor to his profession, 
from the which, as men oj course do seek to 
receive countenance and profit, so ought they of 
duty to endeavor themselves, by way of amends, 
to be a help and ornament thereunto." BACON. 

The Year's Significance 

THE year of 1921 has been a year of 
book-trade emphasis on distribution and 
one of proper caution in the expansion of 
the number of titles. England, as usual, leads 
the United States in totals and this year has 
nearly 10,000 bound volumes compared to a 
little over 6,400 new books and new editions in 
this country. 

It is always regretted in any summary of 
bookselling conditions that there are no facts 
by which to record the total number of books 
made rather than the total number of titles is- 
sued. In many other industries, there are 
complete records of output, so that the gen- 
eral progress and development can be clearly 
charted. In bookselling, however, there is 
no agency for gathering such figures and no 
present means of getting them together. If 
yearly figures could be had from the principal 
edition book binders of the country, which are 
largely located in the big cities, there could 
probably be a clearer understanding of the 
total output than thru any other means. With 
but slightly fewer titles than a year ago, the 
total sales have undoubtedly increased, judging 
by the reports from publishers, and if com- 
plete statistics could be had from the retailers, 
an even better showing would probably be 
made, as for the first months of the year re- 
tailers were busy cutting down their stock by 
turning every possible item into sales. Jobbers 
and mail order houses had the same need of 
curtailing stock investment. 

The Year Round Bookselling Campaign has . 
been the most significant development of the 
year, as it has crystalized the book-trade 
sentiment of placing more emphasis on the 
perfecting of the distributing machinery and 
on the need of reaching the public with 
propaganda of book ownership. Those 
who study such statistics as from time 
to time appear about distribution in various 



other fields are repeatedly struck with the 
potential possibilities of the book market if 
lull headway could be reached, l-'iyun-s i>riiit- 
cd elsewhere in this number point to the fact 
that the phonograph manufacturers expect to 
sell as many records in 1922 as all the book 
publishers combined, including the schoolbook 
manufacturers, will sell books, or will sell as 
many records as all the books circulated in 
our public libraries. But in spite of the shock 
of such figures, gain has been made, and, in 
a year when many businesses have been suf- 
fering curtailment, books have noticeably gone 
ahead. 

Another significant aspect of the year has 
been the increased co-operation between vari- 
ous groups interested in the distribution of 
books. The work of the American Library 
Association has broadened in its scope to in- 
clude a much more varied stimulation of read- 
ing and library extension. The National Edu- 
cation Association has been discussing the 
wider place of general reading in the cur- 
riculum and the importance of libraries in 
every school building, however small. The 
government has continued its appropriation for 
books in the Navy, and the Army appropria- 
toin, tho curtailed, is still going on. 

It has been a record year of new book- 
stores, and all jobbers report many new ac- 
counts. The material published by the Na- 
tional Association of Book Publishers on book- 
store promotion and management has been 
very widely called for and is bringing in a 
steady increase of inquiries. These are signifi- 
cant indications of the healthiness of the book- 
trade. 

The year's analysis of the cost of book- 
making as printed in the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY 
of January i;th has shown that the manufac- 
turing costs have not receded enough to give 
promise of lower prices for the year except 
in the competitive lines where reductions in 
paper and in binding have made changes pos- 
sible. 

Jn the years after the Civil \Var, when similar 
and even greater increases in books were 
necessary, the reductions that finally came 
were the result of the perfecting of new 
methods of manufacture, from new paper 
machinery and perfected printing presses 
rather than in decreases in the elements that 
had previously gone into manufacturing costs. 
It seems likely that a similar situation will 
obtain in the coming years. If the book

been 3,000; equal to almost 30,000 of a similar 
work for the United Kingdom. 

"How great is the sale of Judge Story's 
books can be judged only from the fact that 
the copyright now yields, and for years past 
has yielded, more than $8,000 per annum. Of 
the sale of Mr. Prescott's works little is cer- 
tainly known, but it cannot, I understand, 
have been less than 160,000 volumes. That of 
Mr. Bancroft's History has already risen, cer- 



tainly, to 30,000 copies, and I am told it is 
considerably more; and yet even that is a sale, 
for such a work, entirely unprecedented. 

"Of the works of Hawthorne. Longfellow, 
Bryant, Willis, Curtis, Sedgwick, and numer- 
ous others, the sale is exceedingly great; but, 
as not even an approximation to the true 
amount can be offered, I must leave it to you 
to judge of it by comparison with those of 
less popular authors above enumerated. In 
several of these cases, beautifully illustrated 
editions have been published, of which large 
numbers have been sold. Of Mr. Longfellow's 
volume there have been no less than ten edi- 
tions. These various facts will probably suffice 
to satisfy you that this country presents a 
market for books of almost every description 
unparalleled in the world." 

For a population that had but recently passed 
the Mississippi, this showing now appears re- 
markable. 



The Year Gone By 



ALL things considered the book business 
in 1921 appears to have fared ' better 
than almost any other line of merchan- 
dising, according to the statisticians and the stu- 
dents of the business barometer as analysed in 
the monthly surveys. It maintained, its old time 
reputation of being the last to feel the pinch 
of hard times and the first to recover when 
the tide has a favorable turn. 

A glance at the records of the year shows 
but few business failures in the book-trade 
and those wholly of minor importance. Two 
of tihe speciality publishing houses were com- 
pelled to ask for extensions of credit but both 
were quietly financed with satisfactory results 
and without needless publicity. 

One of the two outstanding features of the 
development of trade during the year was the 
splendid fundamental work of the National 
Association of Book Publishers. Its campaign 
for Year-Round Bookselling brought very en- 
couraging results. Its work was planned with 
such thoroness and wisdom that everyone clown 
to the most skeptia-1 approved its methods 
and was benefited by the outcome. The other 
striking feature due largely to the Associa- 
tion's campaign was the unusually large num- 
ber of ventures in bookselling. More shops 
were opened during the year than were reported 
in any two years in the history of the American 
book trade and reports show that most of them 
are well satisfied with the first results and 
encouraged with the prospects. These shops 
generally followed the present commendable 
trend of selecting distinctive names. 

Among the new shops recorded during the 
year were Aries Book Shop, Buffalo ; Artemesia 
Bookshop, San Diego; Land of Story Books, 
New York; Story Book Shop, New York; 
Frank Coombs, Bay Shore, N. Y.; Dixie 
Terminal Bookshop, Cincinnati; Neighborhood 
Bookshop, New York; Miss Kitty's Bookshop, 
New York; Alexander Hamilton Bookshop, 



Paterson, N. J. ; F. M. Behymer, St. Louis; 
M. E. Blatt Department Store, Atlantic City; 
Blue Book Room, Seattle ; Book and Art Shop, 
South Haven, Midi., Brick Row Book Shop, 
Princeton ; Lloyd E. Buchman, Allentown, Pa. ; 
Campion Bookshop, Toledo; Louis H. Cou- 
lomb, Philadelphia; Douglas Bookshop, De- 
troit; Elizabeth Book Company, Elizabeth, 
N. J.; H. V. Jackson, San Jose, Calif.; Lo- 
cust Street Bookshop, Philadelphia; London 
Bookshop, New York; Hector McQuarrie, 
!!ew York; Paul Morphy Bookshop, New Or- 
leans; City Book Shop, Atlantic City; Ritz- 
Carlton Bookshop, Atlantic City; Silberman- 
Sayers Book and Art Shop, Chicago; Studio 
Bookshop, Chicago ; Studio Book Shop, Mi- 
ami, Fla. ; and Miss White's Book Shop, Mt. 
Vernon, N. Y. 

In the more exciting field of selling that 
of selling by caravan the house of Appleton 
tried it out with an automobile during the sum- 
mer on Long Island with its many vacation 
colonies, and met with very considerable suc- 
cess under the management of E. J. Clode, Jr. 
The caravan of the Boys & Girls Bookshop 
of Boston again made a summer tour of New 
England. 

Another noteworthy development in the book- 
field during the year was the increased pub- 
licity given by a number of daily papers in 
the large cities to book reviews and literary 
news and gossip, to keep in closer touch with 
the greater interest of the public in books 
and reading. 

The death list of 1921 included among au- 
thors of note Frederick Upham Adams, Austin 
Dobson. H. M. Hyndman, Dr. Morris Jastrow, 
Tr., Mrs. Molesworth, Edgar Saltus, Harriet 
Prescott Spofford. Florence Barclav, John Bur- 
roughs, E. W. Hornunr. T. ! G. Huneker and 
F. C. Phillips. 

Among publishers who passed from the 
scene were George Mifflin, M. D. Berlitz, and

American Book Production, 1921 



THE American book production statistics 
for 1921 based on the number of books re- 
corded by the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY during 
that year show a decrease of but 93 in com- 
parison with the figures for 1920, in fact the 
smallest loss since 1917 (1920, 172; 1919, 643; 
1918, 823; 1917, 385). There were in fact 137 
more new books published in 1921 than in 1920, 
but new editions decreased by 78 and 352 fewer 
pamphlets were recorded. 

Books by American authors again lost as well 
as books by foreign authors manufactured in 



America, but importations have increased by 
356. Thirteen classes show gains of which the 
most marked are : Science, 161 ; Geography and 
Travel, 106; Juveniles, 77, and Fine Arts, 65. 
With the exception of Fiction which in 1919 
was among the gaining classes (250), the in- 
creases are, for the most part, along the same 
lines as last year. 

In addition to Fiction which shows a drop 
of 182, the other heaviest losses are Sociology 
and History, each showing a decrease of 137, 
and Agriculture, 121.

Kent's Commentaries, 4 vols 3.38 84,000 

"Next to Chancellor Kent's work comes 
Greenleaf on Evidence, 3 vols., $16.50; the sale 
of which has been exceedingly great, but what 
has been its extent, I cannot say. 

"Of Blaitchford's General Statutes of New 
York, a local work, price $4.50, the sale has 
been 3,000; equal to almost 30,000 of a similar 
work for the United Kingdom. 

"How great is the sale of Judge Story's 
books can be judged only from the fact that 
the copyright now yields, and for years past 
has yielded, more than $8,000 per annum. Of 
the sale of Mr. Prescott's works little is cer- 
tainly known, but it cannot, I understand, 
have been less than 160.000 volumes. That of 
Mr. Bancroft's History has already risen, cer- 



tainly, to 30,000 copies, and I am told it is 
considerably more; and yet even that is a sale, 
for such a work, entirely unprecedented. 

"Of the works of Hawthorne, Longfellow, 
Bryant, Wiljis, Curtis, Sedgwick, and numer- 
ous others, the sale is exceedingly great; but, 
as not even an approximation to the true 
amount can be offered, I must leave it to you 
to judge of it by comparison with those of 
less popular authors above enumerated. In 
several of these cases, beautifully illustrated 
editions have been published, of which large 
numbers have been sold. Of Mr. Longfellow's 
volume there have been no less than ten edi- 
tions. These various facts will probably suffice 
to satisfy you that this country presents a 
market for books of almost every description 
unparalleled in the world." 

For a population that had but recently passed 
the Mississippi, this showing now appears re- 
markable. 



The Year Gone By 



ALL things considered the book business 
in 1921 appears to have fared better 
than almost any other line of merchan- 
dising, according to the statisticians and the stu- 
dents of the business barometer as analysed in 
the monthly surveys. It maintained its old time 
reputation of being the last to feel the pinch 
of hard times and the first to recover when 
the tide has a favorable turn. 

A glance at the records of the year shows 
but few business failures in the book-trade 
and those wholly of minor importance. Two 
of the specialty publishing houses were com- 
pelled to ask for extensions of credit but both 
were quietly financed with satisfactory results 
and without needless publicity. 

One of the two outstanding features of the 
development of trade during the year was the 
splendid fundamental work of the National 
Association of Book Publisthers. Its campaign 
for Year-Round Bookselling brought very en- 
couraging results. Its work was planned with 
such thoroness and wisdom that everyone down 
to the most skeptici-l approved its methods 
and was benefited by the outcome. The other 
striking feature due largely to the Associa- 
tion's campaign was the unusually large num- 
ber of ventures in bookselling. More shops 
were opened during the year than were reported 
in any two years in the history of the American 
book trade and reports show that most of them 
are well satisfied with the first results and 
encouraged with the prospects. These shops 
generally followed the present commendable 
trend of selecting distinctive names. 

Among the new shops recorded during the 
year were Aries Book Shop, Buffalo ; Artemesia 
Bookshop, San Diego; Land of Story Books, 
New York ; Story ' Book Shop, New York ; 
Frank Coombs, Bay Shore, N. Y.; Dixie 
Terminal Bookshop, Cincinnati; Neighborhood 
Bookshop, New York; Miss Kitty's Bookshop, 
New York; Alexander Hamilton Bookshop, 



Paterson, N. J. ; F. M. Behymer, St. Louis; 
M. E. Blatt Department Store, Atlantic City; 
Blue Book Room, Seattle ; Book and Art Shop, 
South Haven, Mich., Brick Row Book Shop, 
Princeton ; Lloyd E. Buchman, Allentown, Pa. ; 
Campion Bookshop, Toledo; Louis H. Cou- 
lomb, Philadelphia ; Douglas Bookshop, De- 
troit; Elizabeth Book Company, Elizabeth, 
N. J. ; H. V. Jackson, San Jose, Calif. ; Lo- 
cust Street Bookshop, Philadelphia; London 
Bookshop, New York; Hector McQuarrie, 
I Tew York; Paul Morphy Bookshop, New Or- 
leans; City Book Shop, Atlantic City; Ritz- 
Carlton Bookshop, Atlantic City; Silberman- 
Sayers Book and Art Shop, Chicago; Studio 
Bookshop, Chicago; Studio Book Shop, Mi- 
ami, Fla. ; and Miss White's Book Shop, Mt. 
Vernon, N. Y. 

In the more exciting field of selling that 
of selling by caravan the house of Appleton 
tried it out with an automobile during the sum- 
mer on Long Island with its many vacation 
colonies, and met with very considerable suc- 
cess under the management of E. J. Clode, Jr. 
The caravan of the Boys & Girls Bookshop 
of Boston again made a summer tour of New 
England. 

Another noteworthy development in the book- 
field during the year was the increased pub- 
licity given by a number of daily papers in 
the large cities to book reviews and literary 
news and gossip, to keep in closer touch with 
the greater interest of the public in books 
and reading. 

The death list of 1921 included among au- 
thors of note Frederick Upham Adams, Austin 
Dobson. H. M. Hyndman, Dr. Morris jastrow, 
Tr., Mrs. Molesworth, Edgar Saltus, Harriet 
Prescott Spofford. Florence Barclav. John Bur- 
roughs, E. W. Hornunr ]". G. Huneker and 
F. C. Phillips. 

Among publishers who passed from the 
scene were George Mifm'n, M. D. Berlitz, and

American Book Production, 1921 



THE American book production statistics 
for 1921 based on the number of books re- 
corded by the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY during 
that year show a decrease of but 93 in com- 
parison with the figures for 1920, in fact the 
smallest loss since 1917 (1920, 172; 1919, 643; 
1918, 823; 1917, 385). There were in fact 137 
more new books published in 1921 than in 1920, 
but new editions decreased by 78 and 352 fewer 
pamphlets were recorded. 

Books by American authors again lost as well 
as books by foreign authors manufactured in 



America, but importations have increased by 
356. Thirteen classes show gains of which the 
most marked are : Science, 161 ; Geography and 
Travel, 106; Juveniles, 77, and Fine Arts, 65. 
With the exception of Fiction which in 1919 
was among the gaining classes (250), the in- 
creases are, for the most part, along the same 
lines as last year. 

In addition to Fiction which shows a drop 
of 182, the other heaviest losses are Sociology 
and History, each showing a decrease of 137, 
and Agriculture, 121.

The Publishers' Weekly 



Classified Analysis of Books Published During 
1921 in Great Britain 



rriHE Polishers' Circular and Booksellers' 
i Record records a total of 11,026 books as 
having been published in the United King- 
dom during 1921. This is an increase of 22 
over the total for 1920. 

An examination of the table showing the 
number of books published each month shows 
that the spring and autumn publishing seasons 



were not so marked as formerly except for a 
drop during the holiday season, and a slight 
rise in the autumn, the figures show a fairly 
constant level maintained thruout the year. 
This is interesting in view of the efforts that 
have been made to keep book-buying active in 
every month of the year, by means of such 
ideas as the "Buy a book a week" campaign.

International Statistics of Book and Periodical 

Production 

Condensed from Data Compiled by Le Droit D'Auteur 






THE annual statistical study of book pro- 
duction published in the December 15 
issue of Le Droit d'Auteur is much more 
extended this year than usual, covering 20 
countries and including new information from 
Latin-America, Belgium, Russia, Sweden and 
Czecho-Slovakia. In its much abbreviated in- 
troductory comment, the article points out 
that the characteristics of igig's book produc- 
tion, a period of transition wherein because 
of the troublous times an enormous number 
of unpublished -works was produced, were ap- 
parent in 1920 : that a relatively large number 
of the works produced the year ebfore were ap- 
lished, since with the exception of Denmark, 
Spain, the United States and Switzerland every 
country showed an increase in 1920 over 
1919; but that this prosperity was deceptive, 
for editions were smaller on account of exorb- 
itant cost of production, that there were in 
general fewer scientific and serious works pub- 
lished, that the sale of expensive books had 
decreased and that the periodical press was 
still unstable. 

The figures given by Le Droit d'Auteur are 
for the most part for 1920. Statistical tables 
for the year 1921 for the United States and 
Great Britain are printed elsewhere in this 
issue. Owing to the extent of the article, com- 
ment has been greatly abbreviated and the fig- 
ures left to speak for themselves.

The year 1920 falls to the level of 1914-15 
and shows a loss of 729 works over 1919. 

Translations which had gained for several 
years (1916, 172; 1917, 199; 1918, 358; 1919, 
450: 1920, 151), lost ground. The greatest 
number were from English (1918, 358, 1919, 
450; 1920, 151). Those from German fol- 
lowed (47, 53, 36). then from French (45,

There were increases in all classes. Among 
the books printed in foreign languages which 
lost by 68, the most numerous were those in 
Spanish which increased from 28 to 36. Books 
in English lost about two-tiidrds (90 in 1919; 
31, 1920) ; next were books in Portuguese 
(26); in French dialects (20), and in Anna- 
mese (8).

BOOK PRODUCTION 

Book production which began to increase in 
1919 after several years of depression again 
increased in 1920 reaching the figures 32,345, 
which approach the prosperity of the years 
before the war. The figures for the past de- 
cade are:

The statistics in the following classified table 
are taken as in the past from the semi-annual 
lists of the Borsenblatt of the German book- 
sellers. Only three classes show losses : Mili- 
tary Science ( 91), General bibliography 
( ^8), and Miscellaneous ( 6). The great- 
est increase is in Belles-lettres (+1586).

The 32,345 publications include 10,078 new 
books (1918, 10, 417; 1919, 15,876); 8715 new 
editions (1918, 4326; 1919, 6432) plus 4552 
reviews (1919, 3886). 

According to an article by M. Sdegismund in 
Papier Zeitung the new books are almost all 
published in small editions. This would ex- 
plain somewhat why publishers complained of 
depression in business while the number of 
new books which reached in 1920 the enorm- 
ous figure of 19,078, was as great as pre-war 
totals. The actual prices were regulated by 
the cost of manufacture which increased ex- 
orbitantly. Paper sold at from 15 to 20 times 
more than before the war. Printing costs 
increased ten fold and binding more. The 
result was that even a large edition could not 
bring about a reduction in price sufficient to 
encourage sale among those to whom the work 
was not indispensable The increased manu- 
fecturing cost was especially fatal for the 
scientific bookseller so that universities and 
students whose means are slender, found it 
difficult to get new books. In Austria the 
libraries were obliged to ask outside libraries 
to lend them books

above. These figures include 1924 new books, 
1021 new editions, 771 newspapers and 349 
translations. The striking feature is the de- 
crease in tine number of new books from 2501 
(1916). The Niewsblad attributes this to the 
increased cost of manufacture, as illustrated 
in the following table which is based on the 
number of books after those which are made 
up chiefly of illustrations have been elim- 
inated :

According to the above the average price 
of a book of 153-152 pages increased from

about 70 per cent which is also the increase 
in the cost of manufacture per page in the 
same time.

RUSSIA 

The book-trade in Russia has been so dis- 
turbed that for two years it has been difficult 
to procure Russian books. In Soviet Russia 
the deposits of former publishing houses have 
long since been exhausted. Publications are 
very few and book exportation, reduced to 
zero. Russian emigrants have formed centers 
in almost every quarter of the globe and have 
founded newspapers the greater part of which 
have ceased to appear. As the emigrants can 
not do without books, publishing houses estab- 
lished in these centers have assumed the task 
of furnishing classic Russian works, belles- 
lettres as well as the practical books, text- 
books, and juveniles needed. These publishing 
houses are situated at Prague, Stockholm, 
Sofia, Paris and Constantinople. The principal 
center of Russian book production, however, 
is at Berlin where there is a large number of 
Russian publishers and booksellers. The sta- 
tistics for 1920-21 which follow are from 
Russkaja Kniqa, a monthly review published 
at Berlin by the house of Heinrich Sachs :

The review also gives the first attempt at 
estimating the book production of Bolshevik 
Russia and arrives at the naturally incomplete 
figure of 369 titles. Whatever the turn of 
events in Russia, it is certain that for a long 
time hence lovers of Russian literature will be 
obliged to seek it outside of Russia.

This enormous total which surpasses all 
countries in the world with the exception of 
Japan is explained by the fact that not only 
books but also pamphlets and leaflets arr in 
eluded. Under these conditions a comparison 
wiith .the production ol other countries i 
valueless especially when it is recalled that 
the literary production of Sweden in 1904, tt 
last year for which information was available, 
was only 1474-

Growth of Phonograph Sales 

THE growth that has taken place in 
the field of phonographs and phonograph 
records has been interestingly charted in a re- 
port published recently by the National Re- 
tail Dry Goods Association, which estimates 



that 6,000,000 phonographs have been sold in 
the United States, and there are probable sales 
of 1,500,000 machines and 100,000,000 records 
for 1922. 

This would make the output of musical rec- 
ords almost on a par with common estimates 
that are made as to the total output of books, 
including textbooks and subscription sets. 

The report points out that two-thirds of the 
phonographs are sold on instalment payments, 
with perhaps I per cent of failures to complete 
payments. The stores that reported on their 
expense accounts show that there was an aver- 
age cost of selling in these departments of 
30.63%. The average margin of gross profit 
in these departments is 40 per cent. Of the 
stores from whom specific data was collected, 
most phonograph departments were on the third 
or fourth floor. 



Drop in Magazine Advertising 

AS the largest users of book paper are the 
magazines, the decrease in their size ow- 
ing to a falling off in advertising has 
been one of the important elements affecting the 
paper market. 

According to the tables compiled by Printer's 
Ink the total January advertising in 61 leading 
magazines and weeklies was : 

1919 1,092,975 lines 

1920 1,806,652 lines 

1921 1,541,589 lines 

1922 i, 111,600 lines 




UNDER THE DIRECTION OF M. LOUISE MOFFETT, SUPERVISOR OF ART AT JACK- 
SONVILLE, 80O CHILDREN MADE FOSTERS FOR CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK. THEY 
WERE EXHIBITED AT THE FLORIDA STATE FAIR AND AT THE JACKSONVILLE PUB- 
LIC LIBRARY. THE CHILDREN WHO WERE FROM 7TH AND 8TH GRADES SHOWED

Titles That Came to the Front 



Best Sellers in the Bookstores 

THE following titles, arranged in order of 
their popularity, have been leading best 
sellers during 1921 according to the rec- 
ords published in Books of the Month. The 
statistics are based on reports of booksellers 
in all parts of the country. One significant 
point to bear in mind, in connection with any 
such list, however, is that the books issued in 
the spring or previous fall invariably have an 
advantage, since they have been on sale for 
a longer period and have had a better oppor- 
tunity to break into the Best Seller Class.

Best Short Stories of 1921 

TTHE twenty short stories of the year chosen 
1 by Edward J. O'Brien for publication in 
"The Best Short Stories of 1921" (the seventh 
volume in his series) were selected because 
they "have rendered life imaginatively in or- 
ganic substance and artistic form." What in- 
terested Mr. O'Brien especially in making his 
survey for the year was the fresh live current 
flowing thru the best American work of the 
present and the imaginative reality which Amer- 
ican writers have brought to it. 

In past years the annual anthology has been 
dedicated to the American author who in Mr. 
O'Brien's opinion made the finest contribution 
to the short story field during the period con- 
sidered. This year the honor again fell to Sher- 
wood Anderson, but since the volume for 1920 
is associated with his name, the new offering is 
inscribed to A. E. Coppard, a distinguished 
English writer who has won the compiler's ad- 
miration. 

An appended list in the Yearbook of the 
American Short Story shows that 80 volumes 
of short stories by American authors have been 
published in the United States during the past 
twelve months. Add to this a total of 24 vol- 
umes by English and Irish authors and 17 books 
of translation, and the short story output in 
this country during 1921 mounts to no incon- 
siderable figure. 

Out of this number a selected list of the best 
books of short stories which the year has pro- 
duced has been made by Mr O'Brien as fol- 
lows :

Literature Abroad 

By Ernest Boyd 



The following very interesting summary of the 
year's literary output abroad appeared in the New 
York Evening Post Literary Review, December 31, 
1921. 

THE close of the year naturally invites 
meditation, melancholy or otherwise, upon 
the literary production of the past twelve 
months. In the various places where books 
are discussed I have noticed lists in which 
cheerful scribes have brought together the 
volumes which seem, in retrospect, to have best 
justified their existence during the year of 
grace now ended. What has struck me most 
about these lists has been the small place al- 
lotted by most of them to American works, 
Out of any given dozen ten books at least 
are importations. Curiously, my own impres- 
sion of the year's foreign literature is that, on 
the whole, very little of outstanding merit has 
come to my notice and that the real creative 
vitality has been on this side of the Atlantic. 
Technical competence is still with the Euro- 
peans, but they have nothing to say. Over 
here, on the other hand, the impulse towards 
self-expression and original creation is power- 
ful, if rather undisciplined and naive. How- 
ever, as I have had many requests for reading 
lists of contemporary European literature, I 
purpose to recapitulate the books of 1921 which 
seem best to answer that need. I am taking 
in alphabetical order, the countries with which 
this department has been more particularly con- 
cerned.

By Way of Comment 

These lists, needless to say, do not purport to 
give the year's best sellers, and they are ob- 
viously not exhaustive. The works mentioned 
simply represent some of the more important 
publications of the year, with special reference 
to those which have been discussed in this col- 
umn or elsewhere in The Literary Review. I 
have not recalled the inevitable volumes by 
German generals proving that the army won 
the war but the civilians lost it; nor the annual 
contributions of MM. Bourget, Loti, Bordeaux, 
and company to the railroad bookstalls of 
France ; nor the vast literature inspired by the 
belief that the millennium has dawned in Mos- 
cow. These bibliographies are primarily con- 
cerned with works of pure literature and they 
give, I think, a fair idea of what each of the 
countries mentioned has produced during the 
past twelve months.

A Year's Library Progress 



IN making a condensed report on the 1921 
activities of the American Library Associa- 
tion Carl H. Milam, secretary, points to a net 
gain in membership of 843, bringing the total 
to 5,307. He estimates that the number of library 
workers in the United States and Canada who 
are not members of the Association is some- 
where between ten and twenty thousand. 

The Headquarters at Chicago has provided 
an employment service for many of the mem- 
bers, has conducted a campaign for recruiting 
for librarianship, has maintained extensive cor- 
respondence in helping communities erect the 
best possible buildings and is in daily touch 
with communities desiring to establish libraries. 

The Library War Service has even now not 
come to complete termination. Recently $1,000 
was authorized for books at Coblenz. The 
work of the merchant marine was transferred 
in August to the American Merchant Marine 



Library Association. A continuing connection 
with the new American Library in Paris "*^"t 
that the librarian will always be nominated by 
the A. L. A, and five trustees appointed. Moft 
of the war hospital service has now gone to the 
government. 

The publication department shows 43 new 
publications, including the valuable pamphlets 
which have done much to interest the public in 
wider reading and pamphlets, such as "View- 
points in Biography," "Children's Books for 
Christmas Presents," "Plays for Children," etc. 
Some of these publications are intended pri- 
marily for distribution to the public and many 
bookstores have availed themselves of this op- 
portunity. 

Some of these, including posters and ex- 
hibits, were made possible by the Books for 
Everybody Fund to which publishers, among 
others, made contribution.

The Publishers' Weekly 



The Year's Activity of the Publishers' 
Association 

Annual Report of the Executive Secretary, Frederic G. Melcher 



THE Executive Committee of six, in whose 
hands, guided by the bi-monthly delibera- 
tions of the Board of Directors, lie the re- 
sponsibility for carrying on the purposes of this 
Association, have held continuous weekly 
meetings on Tuesdays since the last annual 
meeting. The President has visited the office 
daily for conference and suggestion. With 
the enlargement of the quarters there has 
come greater use of the rooms. The confer- 
ence room being made available for such 
outside groups as the Publishers Ad Club and 
The Credit Conference, as well as for meet- 
ings of the Religious Publishing group. 
Medical Publishers and Educational Pub- 
lishers and Year-Round Bookselling Cam- 
paigns. The new rooms double the floor 
space, provide a conference room that will 
hold up to forty people, a smaller committee 
room and two offices. The slight increase in 
rent is being borne by the Bookselling Cam- 
paign, whose staff of three is thus given 
quarters. 

The publishers of Religious Books came 
together last winter to promote a very suc- 
cessful campaign for a wider interest in re- 
ligious books and have organized again this 
winter for even more intensive work. The 
Medical publishers met on December i6th to 
consider the value of special group gather- 
ings and on January 4th the Educational 
publishers came together in the same way. 

In October the American Publishers Copy- 
right League, with its long record of con- 
structive activity, voted to become an in- 
tegral part of the Association, and this work 
was organized as the Bureau of Copyright 
of the National Association of Book Pub- 
lishers with a special committee of five in 
charge of its work. W. W. Appleton as chair- 
man and George Haven Putnam as Secre- 
tary. This Bureau is of very special import- 
ance to members during the present dis- 
cussion on the new Copyright bill and when 
the new law is passed and begins to apply 
to current business. 

Manufacturing Problems 
The fundamental problems of book manu- 
facture and distribution, which affect all 
publishers alike have occupied the larger 
part of the time of the Executive Committee 
and the office staff of three. Printing emer- 



gencies, binding crises, electrotyping and 
photo-engraving costs, freight rates, travel- 
ing and hotel expense, mail regulations, have 
been urgent problems ; the most threatening 
tariff issue the American book-trade ever 
faced; a straining of good copyright rela- 
tions with Canada, an all important project 
of revision of the fundamental copyright law 
of the United States have fallen to 1921. 

The year came in with unfavorable con- 
ditions. In spite of the pressing need of 
lowered manufacturing costs, there were in- 
creases at many points. The December 1920 
decision of the New York arbitrators had 
just increased printing wages $2.50 to $5.00 
per week. The 44 hour week was demanded 
for May 1st. In the spring the Association 
joined in the effort which brought $4.00 to 
$5.00 decreases in one group of unions in 
April. The even more pressing need of re- 
lief in compositors' wages in the fall was not 
however obtained. The 44 hour issue which 
came to a head in May ultimately brought 
open shops in Binghamton, Boston and 
Philadelphia, but only increased costs in New 
York. In January last all bindery workers 
an New York demanded wage increases cor- 
responding to those granted to the printers, 
but the Association insisted that no increases 
could be absorbed by the book-trade and the 
employers stood fast in refusal. On May ist, 
after considerable conference with the unions 
to obtain better conditions the Employing 
Binders broke with the unions and after two 
months effort got satisfactory production in 
an open shop. These various crucial situa- 
tions demanded continuous consideration 
from the Executive Committee. 

Photo-Engraving Costs 
The first of the year had brought also an 
$11.00 increase in the wages of electrotypers 
with 44 hour week and a $6.00 increase 
among photo-engravers. No relief has yet 
been found in these fields, tho better rates in 
photo-engraving have been obtained thru the 
Meyer-Martin bill, passed in the New York 
legislature in May, making it illegal for the 
Unions to set the price at which engraved 
plates should be sold. This important bill 
was backed at Albany by newspapers, 
periodicals and book publishers thru their 
several associations. 



January 28, 1922 






Another important action at Albany in 
which this Association was interested was 
the revision of the Civil Rights Act so as to 
prevent publishers being held liable for re- 
printing photographs and illustrations that 
they had bought in connection with the plates 
of some book or set. This relief was largely 
due to David S. Beasley of the University 
Society. 

In the Committee's investigations into 
manufacturing costs, the possibilities of 
stereotyping has been studied as a substitute 
for the increasingly expensive electrotypes 
but, so far, not many American pressmen 
seem to get the results from these that the 
English do. 

With wages increasing or at best stationary 
in the trades that touch book manufacturing, 
the saving relief that has prevented further 
rise in retail selling prices, has been the drop 
in the cost of materials. Book paper which 
had been 4C. to 5c. before the war and had 
risen to I3C. to I5c., fell by January below 
IDC. and by summer to 7 or 8c. Binding cloth 
came down 20 per cent January isth, and had 
further reduction, tho still about 80 per cent 
higher than a few years ago. 

Freight Rate Hearings 

The fundamental costs of freight and trans- 
portation was early considered tho the 
strained conditions of railroad finances made 
it difficult to find a line of progress. In 
July a hearing was obtained before the freight 
classification committee and as a result of 
this, carload shipments to the South were put 
on the same basis as the rates to other sec- 
tions. This change will mean thousands of 
dollars a year to the educational publishers 
who would be the only ones to ship in car- 
load lots. A further application to obtain 
better classification for 'Less Than Carload 
Lots to all parts of the country was finally re- 
fused by the Federal Commission, but it is 
felt that this may yet be successfully reopened 
by placing the emphasis on educational books. 
Such hearings could only have been obtained 
by publishers acting as an organization. It 
was found that excessive demands for freight 
losses set up against railroads by certain dis- 
tributors of subscription sets, had created a 
strong prejudice in the minds of the Federal 
Commission. 

Co-operating with several other national 
organizations, there has been an effort to get 
some reduction in the cost of railroad travel. 
The abolition of tax on railroad fares on 
January ist has been part of the effort. It is 
hoped that provision may soon be made for 
a 5000 mile book at 2-J^c. which would be 



of great advantage in keeping men in the 
field. 

During the fall a strong drive was made to 
obtain lower hotel rates for the travelers 
representing our members. Several good 
hotels agreed, but not enough to make rt 
feasible to outline a detailed plan. It is be- 
lieved, however, that the agitation did some 
good and echoes of our effort were seen in 
the hotel men's trade papers. Costs of book 
packing were investigated and a pamphlet 
of recommendations sent to members. With 
the incoming of a new Postmaster General 
it seemed an opportune time to strike for re- 
lief from the P. O. ruling that book prices 
could not be printed in book reviews with- 
out their becoming advertising and on 
May 25, Mr. Hays sent out cancellation of 
the aggravating order. 

Tariff and Copyright 

In two directions the publishing world has 
been facing problems such as come to real 
'issue but once in many years and both of 
these carry over for .final decision in 1922: 
tariff and copyright revisions. Wheif the text 
of the Fordney Bill was published in July it 
was found that the book schedules showed 
changes that would rock the established cus- 
toms of the book business to their founda- 
tions. Publishing would be chiefly affected 
by the American Valuation clause which it 
has been estimated, would triple the actual 
amount of the duty paid on editions im- 
ported. Mr. John Macrae, vice president of 
the E. P. Dutton & Company was appointed 
by the Association to watch publishing inter- 
ests and immediate steps were taken to lay 
the case of the book publishers before the 
Ways and Means Committee, of the House 
and before influential senators. When the 
new Senate finally began hearings, the Asso- 
ciation had its plea in shape. In the mean 
time much discussion was started in news- 
papers whose columns help to form .public 
opinion. Mr. Macrae has been also forcing 
attention to the present condition whereby 
book tariff is doubled at the custom house 
thru a ruling that 1/3 of the English list 
price must be the basis for levying all duties. 
The printers and binders have appeared at 
Washington asking for a 50% duty in place 
of the suggested 20%. The Fordney clause*, 
taking from the free list, old books, books 
in foreign languages, books for the blind, 
etc., has been protested against as being a 
severe blow to the educational needs of the 
country, to the retail book-trade and as 
against all American precedent. 

New Copyright Bill Ready 
After many years of firm opposition the 



2O6 



The Publishers' Weekly 



International Typographical Union gave its 
concurrence in July to the plan to revise the 
Copyright Law of the United States so as to 
omit the manufacturing clause. As soon as 
this was assured, consultations toward per- 
fecting a proper bill have gone forward. The 
result, which is about to be presented to 
Congress, is satisfactory to the Authors' 
League, represented by Eric Schuler, the Bu- 
reau of Copyright of this Association, repre- 
sented by Ivlajor Putnam and Stephen H. 
Olin; to R. R. Bowker, as independent 
authority on copyright and member of this 
Association; Theodore Solberg, the Registrar 
of Copyright. While this discussion has 
been going forward, the American Publishers 
Copyright League voted to become connected 
with this Association under the name of the 
Bureau of Copyright of the N. A. B. P., 
thereby becoming the representative of all 
this Associations' Members and of eighteen 
other firms not thus connected and paying 
special dues. This Bureau has steadily 
advocated dropping the manufacturing clause 
but has pointed out that a new copyright law 
ought to adequately protect American pub- 
lishers in the full American rights to such 
foreign books as are contracted for. Under 
the present law practically anyone except the 
American publisher can bring in the rival 
foreign edition. The American libraries have 
strongly protested and will protest actively 
at the Congressional hearings which are to 
come, against any phrase in the law that 
will curtail their right to import all books 
without reference to the American owner 
of copyright. 

Canadian Copyright 

Canadian copyright revisions have offered 
as much food for thought. Their printers 
pushed thru parliament a bill which would 
make Canadian manufacture necessary for 
full protection of rights there. Both Cana- 
dian and American authors would suffer 
from this law as well as all our members. 
A phrase in the law holds it up until pro- 
claimed by the Premier and it is still wait- 
ing and threatening. 

The office has found many opportunities 
during the year to enter into or to help 
supply book discussion to the papers and to 
see that the papers had accurate information 
on publishing conditions. There have also 
been several occasions where the Secretary 
could present the subject of book distribu- 
tion before various audiences. In March last 
your Secretary visited Toronto on the invita- 
tion of the Canadian publishers and spoke 
on new methods in promoting book sales. 
In May before the Booksellers Convention; 



in June before the annual convention of the 
American Library Association; in July at 
Chautauqua ; in the fall in several conven- 
tions of the Middle West. 

The office files of addresses, book-trade 
statistics, copyright data, etc., are becoming 
increasingly complete and valuable and in- 
quiries of all kinds are sent in ; when infor- 
mation is not on hand and falls within the 
Association's province the facts are gathered. 

Co-operative buying of supplies has been 
tested out and proved of a great saving to 
those using it. Recently the Executive 
Committee decided that the Association 
would do well to work in conjunction with 
other business men, desiring to see govern- 
ment economy, in support of the budget sys- 
tem and gave a group subscription of $100, 
whereas individual subscription would have 
been $25 per firm. 

For the Committee on New Outlets the 
office has prepared a pamphlet on "Opening 
a Book Department," one on "The Successful 
Bookshop" and material on "Starting a 
Circulating Library." Many letters on book- 
selling problems are answered, advice given 
and special interviews arranged. A canvass 
on the question of which cities need new 
bookshops has just been made . It has been 
a banner year in the increasing of new book- 
shops and most of them have been in touch 
with the office in one way or another. 

Bookselling Campaigns 

While the Executive Committee is largely 
occupied with matters of general importance 
to all publishers it has also encouraged the 
organizing of campaigns for the sale of more 
books and the Year-Round Bookselling Cam- 
paign seems to have successfully met the 
problem of increasing the aggressiveness of 
the trade and must take some of the credit 
for the good showing the publishing business 
has shown in 1921 as compared to so many 
industries. This campaign was supported by 
nearly all the publishers of the trade books 
and carried its own overhead and material 
expense. Its success has warranted a much 
increased appropriation for 1922. 

No wholly complete survey of the year's 
activities could be contained in one report 
but so many trade problems have come up 
which could only be adequately handled by 
some joint action that it now seems hard to 
imagine how the situations could have been 
met by spasmodic individual action. Joint 
effort seems economical of time and money 
and the constructive way of facing the 
present needs and future expansion of a great 
industry, a great industry facing its period 
of greatest expansion.

Copyright Report for the Fiscal Year 1920-21 

By Thorvald Solberg, Register of Copyrights 



COPYRIGHT ENTRIES AND FEES 

THE registrations for the fiscal year num- 
bered 135,280. Of these, 127,338 were 
registrations at $i each, including a cer- 
tificate, and 5,736 were registrations of photo- 
graphs without certificates, at 50 cents each. 
There were also 2,206 registrations of re- 
newals, at 50 cents each. The fees for these 
registrations amounted to a total of $131,309. 

COPYRIGHT DEPOSITS 

The total number of separate articles de- 
posited, in compliance with the copyright law, 
which have been registered, stamped, indexed, 
and cataloged, during the fiscal year is 235,122. 
It is not possible to determine exactly how 
completely the works which claim copyright 
are deposited; but as title cards are printed 
and supplied upon request to other libraries 
for all books received bearing United States 
notice of copyright, the demand for such cards 
for works not received furnishes some indi- 
cation of possible percentage of failure to 
deposit. 

In response to inquiries received during the 
year from the Card Division, the Order Di- 
vision, and the Reading Room in regard to 
631 books supposed to have been copyrighted 
but not discovered in the library, it was found 
that 35 of these works had been received and 
were actually in the Library, 122 books had 
been deposited and still in the Copyright Office, 
30 works were either not published, did not 
claim copyright, or for other valid reasons 
could not be deposited, while in the case of 248 
works no answers to our letters of inquiry 
had been received up to June 30, 1921. Copies 
we"e received of 196 works in all in response 
to, requests made by the Copyright Office dur- 
i&g the period of 12 months for the works 
published in recent years. 

The total copyright deposits for the year 
included : 

Printed volumes 19,306 

Pamphlets and leaflets 35,636 

Newspapers and magazines 68,148 

Dramas 3,545 

Pieces of music 47,688 

Maps 3.322 

Phonographs 13,649 

Prints 14,520 

Motion pictures 9,210 

Contributions to periodicals .... 13,125 

Works of art and drawings 3.982 

Lectures 198 

These were all produced in the United States. 
From abroad there were received 2,546 books 
in foreign languages and 247 books in Eng-' 
lish. 

During the fiscal year a total of 102,789 ar- 
ticles deposited have been transferred to the 
Library of Congress. This number included 
16,632 books, 50,589 periodicals, 29,125 pieces 
of music, 3.355 maps, and 3.088 photographs 
and engravings. 



pu 



Out of the total number of articles de- 
posited in the Coypright Office .luring the peri- 
od from July i, 1909, to June 30, 1921 (2,- 
288,270), there have been transferred to the 
Library of Congress 217,555 books 285911 
pieces of music, 61,354 maps. 46,351 photo- 
graphs and prints, 442,154 newspapers and 
magazines a total of 1,053,325 pieces during 12 
years. This transfer includes a total of n 261 
volumes for the War Service Library for the 
use of soldiers and sailors during the war, 
and 13,491 volumes of American poetry and 
drama sent to the Library of Brown Uni- 
versity. 

INDEX OF COPYRIGHT ENTRIES, CATALOG, 
BULLETINS AND CIRCULARS 

The Copyright Act of 1909 (sec. 56; re- 
quires the Register of Copyrights to fully 
index all copyright registrations. This index 
is made by using card forms carefully pre- 
pared and printed. 223,044 cards were' made 
during the fiscal year for this purpose. These 
cards are used as the printer's copy (properly 
edited) for the Catalogue of Copyright En- 
tries required by law to be prepared and 
printed at periodic intervals. When returned 
from the printer after the revision of the 
proof about half of these cards are filed in 
their proper places in the permanent card in- 
dexes. During the year 135,280 cards of this 
character were so completed and filed. The 
various permanent indexes to the copyright 
registrations now contain nearly three and a 
half million cards. To save cost of duplica- 
tion so far as practical, the title cards for 
copyrighted books prepared by the Catalogue 
Division of the Library of Congress are used 
in preparing printer's copy for the Catalogue 
of Copyright Entries, Part i, Group I (Books). 
Of the 6,673 t'tles of books entered during the 
calendar year 1920, about 6,000 were so pre- 
pared. 

The remaining titles were made in the Copy- 
right Office by the Catalogue and Index Di- 
vision, as well as the index cards required for 
all other works registered, the cards numbering, 
during 1020, nearly 220,000. 

During the calendar year 1920. 136 num- 
bers of Part i, Group I, of the Catalogue were 
published, containing the book titles, with 
complete record for all renewals for books, 
and complete annual index. 1.089 plus 266 
pages; 12 monthly numbers of Part i. Group 
2, containing titles of pamphlets, contributions 
to newspapers, lectures, dramatic composi- 
tions, maps, and motion pictures, and a com- 
plete annual index, 1,952 closely printed pages : 
4 quarterly numbers of Part 2, containing a 
registrations for newspapers and magazine*, with 
annual index, 467 pages: 12 monthly numbers 
of Part 3, musical compositions, with conjp 
list of renewals for music and lists of music 
used or licensed to be used for mechanic 
reproduction, together with complete annual

index, 2,589 compactly printed pages; and 
4 quarterly numbers of Part 4, containing 
registrations of works of art and photographs 
and prints, with annual index, 410 pages. 

The two Copyright Office bulletins most in 
demand, No. 14, containing the copyright laws, 
and No. 15, "Rules and Regulations for the 
registration of claims to copyright," were re- 
printed during the year. Information Circulars 
were printed as follows: No. 58, containing 
the President's Copyright Proclamation dated 
April 10, 1920 in regard to Great Britain and 
the British copyright Order in Council dated 
February 9, 1920, both effective on the 2d day 
of February, 1920, (6p. 8) ; and No. 59, con- 
taining the President's Copyright Proclamation 
of December 9, 1920, in regard to Denmark 
(3p. 8). A continuing demand for copies of 
the general Copyright Proclamation of April 
9, 1910, necessitated a reprint of Information 
Circular No. 40 (2p. 8 e ). 

LEGISLATION 

On February 24, 1921, a joint resolution pro- 
viding that certain motion-picture films and 
talking machine records registered under the 
United States copyright laws be sent to the 
Director of the National Museum for preser- 
vation, was introduced in the Senate by Hon. 
James D. Phelan of California. It was re- 
ferred to the Senate Committee on Education 
and Labor, but there was no further action 
taken. 

On April 13, 1921, Hon. Duncan U. Fletcher 
reintroduced his bill "to protect Government 
documents by copyright." The text of this bill 
is identical with Sec. I of the bill introduced 
on February 28, 1918. 

A bill to amend section i of the copyright 
law of 1909, was introduced on June 21, 
1921, by Hon. Florian Lampert and was re- 
ferred to the Committee on Patents. The 
amendment consists in the addition of a fur- 
ther proviso to the first paragraph of sec. i 
(e), in the following words: 

The copyright control shall not extend to 
public performances for profit of musical com- 
positions where such performance is made 
from printed or written sheets or reproducing 
devices issued under the authority of the 
owner of the copyright. 

My last year's report (1919-20, p. 130) noted 
the passage by the House of Representatives 
of the public printing bill, containing the pro- 
vision that "no Government publication or any 
portion thereof shall be copyrighted," but no 
action was taken by the Senate on that bill 
before the adjournment of the 66th Congress. 
Early in the 67th Congress, a public printing 
bill was introduced in the Senate by Hon. Geo. 
H. Moses, on which no action has yet been 
recorded. 

"A bill to consolidate, codify, revise, and 
reenact the general and permanent laws of 
the United States in force March 4, 1919," was 
introduced in the House by Hon. Edward C. 
Little on September 20. 1919, as H. R. 9389. 
Several prints of the bill were issued to De- 
cember 17, 1920, and reports were printed 
March 27, 1920 and January 13, 1921. The bill 



passed the House on December 20, 1920, and 
was presented to the Senate on December 23, 
1920. The bill was reintroduced in the 67th 
Congress as H. R. 12, April II, 1921. It was 
reported without amendment May 13, 1921 (H. 
Rept. 68), passed the House on May 16, and 
was presented to the Senate and referred to 
the Committee on Revision of the Laws on 
June 27, 1921. 

INTERNATIONAL COPYRIGHT 

Under the authority of the act approved De- 
cember 18, 1919, providing for retrospective 
copyright protection in the United States for 
works published abroad after August I, 1914, 
and "before the date of the President's Proc- 
lamation of Peace" not heretofore copyrighted 
in the United States, a proclamation by the 
President was issued on April 10, 1920, in be- 
half of Great Britain (see my report 1919-20, 
pp. 141-147) and a similar proclamation in be- 
half of Denmark was issued on D^:ember 9, 
1920 (see pp. 136-139 of this report). 

Under .the provisions of the Joint Resolution 
of Congress (Public No. 64, approved March 

3, 1921) the act of December 18, 1919, became 
effective on March 3, 1921. Works published 
abroad in the English language after that date 
may be deposited in the Copyright Office for 
registration within 60 days after first publica- 
tion to secure an ad interim copyright in the 
United States for four months from the date 
of receipt of the deposited copy and registra- 
tion as provided by this act. 

Under the provisions of the act of March 

4, 1909, the benefits of section i (e), securing 
copyright control of the mechanical reproduc- 
tion of music, were extended to the authors of 
Sweden by the President's proclamation of 
February 27, 1920 (see pp. 135-136 of this re- 
port). 

"An Act to amend and consolidate the law 
relating to copyright" was passed by the Par- 
liament of Canada during May and assented 
to on June 4, 1921. When its provisions are 
put into effect they will seriously embarrass the 
publishers of books and periodicals in the 
United States. In response to inquiries con- 
cerning this act it is printed* in full in the 
addenda to ths report, pp. 141-168. 

The enactment of this Canadian statute 
makes it imperative that some action be 
promptly taken to secure more satisfactory 
copyright relations between the United States 
and Canada. The fundamental difficulty here- 
tofore has been the obligation to print in the 
United States books and periodicals and to 
manufacture here lithographs and photo-en- 
gravings, and the first step clearly indicated is 
the elimination by law of this requirement 
of American manufacture. The Authors' 
League of America is proposing the introduc- 
tion of an amendatory act limited to the abro- 
gation of all provisions of the Copyright Act 
of March 4, 1909, relating to American type- 
setting, etc., and to urge its prompt enactment 
by Congress. When that has been accom- 
plished satisfactory reciprocal copyright pro- 
tection between the two countries may be dis- 
cussed and arranged for.

GIFTS 

Among the gifts received was one of a large 
lot of pamphlets, periodicals, and separate works 
that included some rare southern imprints 
dating before the Civil War, presented by 
Mr. Desha Breckinridge, Lexington, Ky., 
Miss Sophonisba Breckinridge, and Mr. 
Henry Breckinridge Washington, D. C, with- 
the gift made by them of additions to the Breck- 
inridge papers which they had previously pre- 
sented. From Viscount Bryce came a collection 
of pamphlets, periodicals, and newspapers deal- 
ing with questions of the day, particularly with 
regard to affairs of Slavic nationalities. From 
Mr. and Mrs. Hugo W. Hesselbach, Wash- 
ington, D. C, came a collection of German 
literature that formed the library of Mr. Hes- 
selbach's father, the late William Randolph 
Hesselbach. From Mr. J. Henry Holcomb, 
custodian of the records, headquarters of the 
Grand Army of the Republic, Philadelphia, 
came, in accordance with the action of the Na- 
tional Encampment, sets of the journals of the 
National and Departmental Encampments. The 
additions made by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Pen- 
nell to the Joseph and Elizabeth Robins Pennell 
collection of Whistleriana, presented by them 
to the Library in 1917, are noteworthy. 

Gifts from publishers included various im- 
ported and non-copyrighted books, as well as 
certain copyrighted books, of which additional 
copies were desired : From the B*ureau of Na- 
tional Literature, 20 volumes; M. Edouard. 
Champion, 3 volumes ; George H. Doran Com- 
pany, 35 volumes; Doubleday, Page & Com- 
pany, 34 volumes; E. P. Dutton & Company, 
16 volumes; Funk & Wagnalls Company, 13 
volumes ; B. W. Huebsch Inc., 3' volumes ; John 
Lane Company. 60 volumes ; Longmans. Green 
& Company, 89 volumes ; John W. Luce & 



Company, i volume; Andrew Melrose, Ltd. 4 
volumes; John Hendy Nash, i volume- the 
Pioneer Company, i volume; Plon-Nourrit & 
Cie, 5 volumes; Frederick A, Stokes Company 
4 volumes. 

PURCHASES 

The total of purchases during the past year 
tho not so great as in 1920, is considerably 
above the pre-war average. In that year the 
Library was in receipt of several collections of 
war material, which augmented the total receipt 
thru purchase. In addition, as during the 
past year, a number of orders that had been 
placed abroad were filled, which had remained 
unexecuted because of war conditions. Pur- 
chases of war material have been and must 
continue to be selective. For purchases gen- 
erally, with respect to quality, tho not as 
to number, obviously one of our chief sources 
is the auction roof. During the fiscal year 
1920-21, the Library bid on 1,539 items offered 
for sale at auction, and obtained 1,046 of them, 
or a little iless than 68 per cent of the number. 
The year before the Library similarly bid on 
1,688 items, and obtained 1,093 of them, or 
nearly 65 per cent of the number. The results 
thus shown, are encouraging only within limits. 

Purchase of a copy of the interesting block 
book of Italian origin, the "Opera noua contem- 
platiua" of Giovanni Andrea Vavassore, gives 
to the Library an interesting specimen of 
printing from engraved wooden blocks, and 
the first block book, other than in reproduction. 
that it has come to possess. Six incunabula 
have been added. Exceptional good fortune 
enabled us to obtain six rare issues of English 
colonial treaties with the American Indians. 
Mr. De Puy, in his bibliography of the sub- 
ject, gives 50 entries for treaties negotiated 
between 1677 and 1768 that were separately 
printed. The Library now possesses in the 
original issue 21 of the 50. 

Numerous titles in English and American 
literature of the eighteenth and nineteenth cen- 
turies significant for their literary, historical, 
or bibliographical interest have been added dur- 
ing the year; but a list of them would unduly 
swell this report. 

In the Librarian's report for 1910 was noted 
the deposit in that year, by Mrs. John Boyd 
Thacher, of Albany, N. Y., of the collection of 
incunabula brought together by her husband, the 
late John Boyd Thacher. Mrs. Thacher. again 
manifesting the same public spirit that actuated 
her husband during his distinguished career, 
has now deposited in the Library Mr. Thach- 
er's collection on the French Revolution. 

DIVISION OF MANUSCRIPTS 

At the instance of Dr. Gaillard Hunt, form- 
erly Chief of the Division of Manuscripts, bt 
now Editor for the Department of State and 
in charge of its Libra ry and Archives, and upon 



210 



The Publishers' Weekly 



recommendation of the Secretary of State, the 
President of the United States directed the 
transfer to the Library of Congress (under the 
general authorization of the Act of Congress 
of February 25, 1903) of the originals of the 
Declaration of Independence and of the Consti- 
tution of the United States. The formal trans- 
fer was made at the Department of State on 
September 30 (1921), when Secretary Hughes 
delivered these historic documents to the Li- 
brarian of Congress. 

The field of history is constantly broadening. 
Social, economic, educational, literary and art 
movements now claim the attention of the his- 
torian, and consequently are not to be neglected 
in the gathering of materials for his use. The 
development of the Nation can not be dealt with 
adequately without reliance on the papers of 
the Presidents of the United States. During 
the past year there have been noteworthy addi- 
tions to the presidential series. 

Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan's collection of Wash- 
ington letters includes a number not in the Li- 
brary's 400 volumes of Washington papers. In 
order to make his material available to his- 
torical scholars, Mr. Morgan graciously and 
generously had his letters photostated for this 
Library. 

[The Library has also obtained other Wash- 
ington papers and correspondence of Adams, 
Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, Van Bur- 
en, Tyler, Polk, Fillmore, Buchanan, Lincoln, 
Johnson, Grant, Hayes, Garfield and McKinley.] 

The Commodore John Rodgers papers fur- 
nish materials for the study of the beginning 
of the United States Navy. 

Materials for Navy history have been added 
to appreciatively by the further gift of some 
400 papers of Rear Admiral Charles Stillman 
Sperry. There are letters from the Second 
Peace Conference at The Hague in 1907, and 
an unpublished account of the cruise round the 
world of the Atlantic Fleet, 1007-9. 

The Confederate States Treasury Depart- 
ment records of expenditures from its organi- 
zation, September 19, 1861, to January 18, 1862; 
correspondence of the Treasury, including let- 
ters from collectors of customs; also quarter- 
masters' correspondence; also letters and tele- 
grams to the Secretary of War, C. S. A., are 
among the official papers deposited by the 
United States Treasury. 

These records have been supplemented by 
the purchase of the correspondence and papers 
of George A. Trenholm, the last Secretary of 
the Confederate Treasury. The group includes 
information as to cotton shipments for Treas- 
ury account and loans negotiated in France and 
England. 

By the gift of Hon. Henry Breckinridge, 
Trustee, formerly Assistant Secretary of War, 
the Library comes into possession of the papers 
of his father, the late Maj. Gen. Joseph Cabell 
Breckinridge, Inspector General of the Army. 
1889-1004. The collection is especially rich in 
materials relating to the Spanish American War. 
This addition to the Breckinridge papers adds 
an important group to a collection which begins 
with the correspondence of John Breckinridge 



(in the second generation from a Scotch Cov- 
enanter who escaped to America after the re- 
storation of the Stuarts), who was the author 
of the Kentucky Resolutions and of the legis- 
lation relating to the admission of Louisiana. 

Mr. Justice Holmes supplemented his former 
gifts by bestowing on the Library seven volumes 
of manuscripts of Dr. Holmes's writings, in- 
cluding "The Poet at the Breakfast Ta'ble" ; 
"Over the Teacups" ; "A Mortal Antipathy" 
and "Our Hundred Days" ; a volume of poems ; 
the biography of Ralph Waldo Emerson; a 
volume of notes on Emerson ; and the biog- 
raphy of John Lothrop Motley. 

The demands on the material were more di- 
versified this year than last. More important 
projects and a greater interest in historical! re- 
search were made evident by the manner in 
which the material was used. Prof. John Bach 
McMaster, of the University of Pennsylvania, 
spent several months in the division, engaged 
on the continuation of his "History of the 
People of the United States." Prof. Edward 
Channing of Harvard College has been an 
occasional visitor in connection with his "His- 
tory of the United States." Mr. Jos- 
eph Bucklin Bishop drew upon the Roosevelt 
papers here for much of the material used in 
"Theodore Roosevelt's Letters to his Children," 
and for his "Theodore Roosevelt and His Time 
as Shown in His Own Letters." Selections from 
the llast-named correspondence are now on ex- 
hibition in the Library. Prof. John Spencer 
Bassett of Smith College, was occupied for 
six months on the Andrew Jackson correspon- 
dence, with the result of adding materially to 
the Jackson papers, thru gifts of papers lo- 
cated by him. This form of cooperation is 
beneficial both to the student and to the Library. 
Mr. James Truslow Adams worked in the di- 
vision for several months on materials used in 
his "The Founding of New England." More 
than 130 different students registered for longer 
or shorter periods, and the daily average num- 
ber of persons working was about 10.

The February 
Poster 

THE program of the 
Year-Round Booksell- 
ing Campaign places 
special emphasis for Feb- 
ruary on books concerning 
American biography and 
history. The poster, which 
is going out to the book- 
sellers, is one of the most 
successful that 'has 'yet been 
issued, and dealers are like- 
ly to give at honorary place 
on their walls long after 
the month is over. Black 
and white reproduction does 
not give the full effect, as 
in the color the figures of 
father and son are in bright 
orange and brown and the 
historical figures like a 
tapestry of blue and green. 

Book Reviewers 
and Churches 

AX article appears in 
the current number of 
the Congregationalist, 
which shows that one Ohio 
minister in that denomina- 
tion has found that his 
parish is decidedly inter- 
ested in current books, and 
interested also, to have them 
carefully discussed and 
the problems they present 
thrashed over : 

In the hottest part of the 
summer, a pastor in a mid- 
western church announced 
on a Sunday morning that 
lor a number of Wednes- 
day afternoons at 4.30 he 
would review popular nov- 
els. With a twinkle in his 
eye, he said that, if no one cared to appear 
at the appointed hour, he would spend that 
time in reading other novels. 

"He found the church editors of the local 
papers very willing to give free publicity. 
What was his delight, on arriving at the par- 
ish house the first afternoon, to find no peo- 
ple assembled to hear his review of Rose 
Macaulay's Totterism.' The next Wednes- 
day afternon found a capacity audience. Peo- 
ple were standing in the corridors and were 
perched in the balconies to hear his revie of 
Sinclair Lewis's 'Main Street.' The attend- 
ance was over 220, altho the thermometer 
stood at 03 in the shade. Crowds ranering 




America's Making

"In these book reviews the pastor told "the 
story as simply as possible, and then very 
frankly preached as good a sermon as he 
could, on some of the problems presented. Ml 
the meetings were unsensational in style, the 
people being reverent and. attentive." 

Talks on Bookshops 

A SERIES of short talks on "The Inti- 
mate Bookshops of New York" was the 
afternoon program of the New York Libran 
Club on Thursday. January loth. The Pro-

The Publishers' Weekly 

In the Field of the Retailer 



A New Combination 

THERE have been many suggestions during 
the past year that the book business could 
find healthy connection with many other 
lines of merchandise besides those with which 
books are accustomed to appear. Perhaps the 
most unusual recent news of such a definite 
accomplishment is that coming from Elizabeth 
H. West, State Librarian at Austin, Texas, 
who reports that in Dallas J. A. Majors Com- 
pany of 1710 Commerce Street has an automo- 
bile shop and books happily combined. Miss 
West's description is as fallows : 

"Passing along a business street of Dallas, 
Texas, a few days ago, I noticed an automobile 
shop with books arranged on shelves on one 
side. The combination aroused my curiosity 
so that I stepped inside to inquire ho*w it hap- 
pened. I was told by the young man in charge 
that the shoo was originally a book shop deal- 
ing in medical books; the main house being in 
New Orleans ; and that automobiles had been 
added as a side line. 

"I asked him how far the two lines had 
helped each other out ; he replied that the auto- 
mobile line had apparently had no effect upon 
the bookselling end of the business, but that 
the books had helped automobile sales, in that 
several physicians coming in to buy medical 
books had become interested in the automobiles 
with several resultant sales. 

"Both lines seemed to be flourishing, and 
will soon be separated ; for the present, how- 
ever, this combination, unique so far as I 
know, is continued." 

Still Buying a Book a Week 

FIVE customers who started last year are 
still regularly buying their "book a week" ac- 
cording to the report of Will H. Johnson of 
W. B. Read & Co., B'loomington, 111. 

Mr. Johnson wrote an interesting account for 
the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY last May of how he 
had put into practice the slogan of "Buy a 
Book a Week," and he has been pleased to 
find how many who took up the idea have not 
needed further urging to make the regular addi- 
tions to their libraries. 

ATStore Correspondence Card 

THE Little Bookstore in East Sixtieth Street, 
New York, has an attractive correspondence 
card that gives a personal touch to all the no- 
tices that go out. This card is 4^4 x ^A and 
has a decorative border with the name and 
address of the shop in a scroll across the top. 
There is a good sized writing space, and it can 
be mailed at the one cent postage rate. 
This forms a very effective way of notifying 
people about books that have come to hand 
which should be of special interest to them. 



Writing Sentiment for People 

THOSE who either sell or use greeting 
cards, which have come to be such an im- 
portant part of our every-day life, do not often 
stop to consider the careful thought that is 
given to the subject of getting the right senti- 
ment into the right shape. A most interesting 
analysis of what people like in sentiments is 
given in an article in the January American, 
based on an interview with J. P. McEvoy, edi- 
tor for the P. F. Volland Company, and well 
known to the book-trade for his energy and 
imagination of the book as well as the greet- 
ing card field. 

Mr. McEvoy says that "You would be sur- 
prised to know how many people are yearning 
for somebody, and they are either too bashful 
to say it or they do not know how to write it 
so they send 'Yearning-for-you' cards. Other 
popular cards are the 'heart-home-and-mother' 
and the lonely theme. The best selling Valen- 
tine Day card Volland ever had carried the sim- 
ple line, 'Aw, go on ! Have a heart!' The best 
selling birthday card said 'Cheer up, everybody 
'has 'em." As Mr. McEvoy points out, the edi- 
tor of a magazine may study the tastes and 
ideas of the people and yet never know exactly 
what part of what he prints is most in line with 
public sentiment. The greeting card manufac- 
turer is left in no such uncertainty. He has 
a very direct check on the sales, as people read 
what they buy and buy what they like to read. 

Eighty Years a Bookstore 

ADAMS Book Store at 165 North Main St, 
Fall River, has been celebrating its eightieth 
birthday. 

It was founded in 1842 by Robert Adams and 
continued by his son, Edward S. Adams, until 
he retired in 1917 in favor of Laughlin W. Mc- 
Farland who had been long connected with the 
store. 

To celebrate the anniversary, one of the show 
windows of the store was filled with papers and 
mementoes of the days when Fall River was 
young. Among the papers were receipted bills 
covering many years, which showed that in 
those days it was very common to have annual 
settlements between retailers and manufactur- 
ers and also between these same merchants and 
their customers. lit was not until the early sev- 
enties that bills began to be presented quar- 
terly. 

Among other papers was an order upon Rob- 
ert Adams for schoolbooks for those children 
who could not afford to purchase their own. 
One of these was signed by Samuel Longfel- 
low, brother of the poet, who was Unitarian 
minister there and chairman of the school com- 
mittee. Edward S. Adams still retains his desk 
at the store tho taking no active part in the 
business.

Foreign Language Books 

THAT there is less study of foreign lan- 
guages in the colleges of the country than 
previously is indicated by the figures given out 
at a recent conference of eighteen leading col- 
leges and universities at Chicago. Ten years 
ago, about twenty-five per cent of all the stuh 
dents were taking foreign languages ; now, only 
twenty-one and one-third per cent. This is con- 
trary to what would have been expected as the 
result of our wider interest in world affairs, 
and will mean less textbooks for that field and 
less literature in the foreign languages sold 
than heretofore. There has been an increase in 
the study of the sciences. 

Leary's Location Threatened 

THE time-honored site of the famous second- 
hand bookstore of Leary, Stuart & Co. at 
9 South Ninth St. has been threatened by an 
ordinance introduced before the Philadelphia 
City Council whose object is to provide for the 
widening of Ludlow St. The object of this 
widening is to provide a delivery approach to 
the big new extension for Gimbel Bros, depart- 
ment store. 

The action will be opposed by Hon. Edwin 
S. Stuart, head of this book business and former 
governor of Pennsylvania wiho moved the busi- 
ness to that location in 1877. Mr. Stuart ex- 
plains that if it were a matter of civic im- 
provement he would not complain but as it is 
merely a business proposition he believes that 
the (bookstore should be left on the site where 
it is known to thousands thruout the country. 

No Canadian Import Marking 

BY an order-in-council just passed at Ot- 
tawa, the regulation of making necessary 
an imprint on all goods shipped into Canada 
has been again postponed and it seems unlikely 
that it will ever be revived. 

This import regulation was originally planned 
for October ist and then, because of objections 
received from importers, was delayed until Jan- 
uary. The act of postponement is effective 
"until after the close of the next session of 
Parliament" the Parliament coming to session 
in March. 

International Theatrical Exhibit 

THE association, Kunst aan het Volk (Art 
1 for the People) will organize in January and 
February a theatrical exhibition in the Munici- 
pal Museum. A section will be devoted to lit- 
erature concerning the modern theater in all 
its details. The printed catalog which wilt be 
sold at the exhibition will specially mention tl 
names of the editors, the owners, and those 
who offered books, so that the booklet will be- 
come an important acquisition for the literature 
of the theater, that means a universal biblio- 
graphy of the world's theater literature, a 
permanent guide for all those interested in the 
movement of the modern theater. 



Current Clippings 

Boni & Liveright will soon publish the first 
novel of Edna St. Vincent Millay. 



There is a rumor that Cosmo Hamilton U 
making a stage play of A. S. M. Hutchinson's 
"If Winter Comes." 



Amy Lowell started a brief lecture tour, 
January 11. She went first to Pittsburgh, then 
to Cleveland, Newark, Trenton, and New York. 
She will speak five times in New York City. 



A woman was overheard asking in the John 
Wanamaker bookshop the other day for "The 
Woman With a Mirror." The clerk found 
that she meant "The Glass of Fashion." 



ANOTHER novel by Knut Hamsun has been 
announced for publication by Knopf. It is 
"Wanderers," which combines the two original 
Norwegian novels "Under the Autumn Stars" 
and "A Wanderer Plays With Muted Strings." 
Other novels by Hamsun will follow at regular 
intervals. 



Ax EXPERIMENT unique in the theater will 
be launched by the Theatre Guild on Feb. 2. 
when it will begin the presentation of Shaw's 
newest play, "Back to Methuselah," at the 
Garrick Theatre. The length of the play is 
such that it will require three evenings for 
its presentation, and accordingly it will be 
given as a cycle. 

"Back to Methuselah" has been available m 
book form for a number of months, published 
by Brentano's, but the presentation at the 
Garrick will be the first performance on any 
stage. By its readers it has been generally 
regarded as unactable chiefly because of 
length and the impossibility of -condensing 
it, even if George Bernard Shaw were to give 
his consent. 

ANNOUNCEMENT is just made at the University 
of Chicago that the contestants for the annual 
John Billings Fiske Prize in Poetry are re- 
quired to have their manuscripts m t! 
dent's Office not later than March I. The cor 
petition is open to all students in the univer 
both graduate and undergraduate. The 
ject, length and form of the verse are 1 
to the discretion of the student

dollars, and the university reserves the i 
of first publication. Selections from last yea 
prize winner (a cycle of short poems) were 
published in the Vmrrsity Record. 
Atlantic Monthly, and Poetry. The prize _was 
established in 1920 by Horace Spencer Fi.s 
in memorv of his father, a Ph. Beta Kappa 
graduate of Union College, New Yorl

The Publishers' Weekly 



New Issue of Mileage Books 

THE Senate passed on January 2ist the In- 
terchangeable Mileage Book Bill, which di- 
rects 'the Interstate Commerce Commission to 
authorize railroads to issue mileage books of 
from 1,000 to 5,000 miles at "just and reason- 
able rates." The National Association of Book 
Publishers has been co-operating with other 
national groups in pressing for some action of 
this kind, in order to make it more economical 
to keep men in the field. 

It had been argued that a 2 l / 2 cent mile rate 
ought to be obtained, but the Bill leaves the 
rate to the Commission. Present mileage aver- 
ages about 3.6 cents to a mile. The general im- 
pression is that the mileage will be issued at 
2^4 or 3 cents a mile, or from $6.00 to $8.50 
saving per 1,000 miles. 



Navy Books Sold 

A GREAT quantity of miscellaneous books, 
which had been stored in Brooklyn since 
the war, has been bought by Gimbel's New 
York Store and was placed on sale January 
ipth. This large collection of 40,000 volumes 
is not of the books that were put on the ves- 
sels by the War Service of the American Li- 
brary Association, but is part of a quantity 
purchased by the navy itself before the A. L. A. 
established its connection with the ships. The 
books are -entirely new and include a great 
many on travel, biography, several thousand 
Everyman's Library, etc.

TRAVEL BOOKS STOLEN 

Army and Navy Club, 
Washington, D.C. 
Jan. 21 st, 1922. 
Editor, PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY : 

Last August I rented my house at 1825 Q St., 
N. W., to a Dr. J. F. d'Vallier, who claimed 
to be a British subject, and was attached to the 
British Embassy. The man left Washington 
early in January leaving many creditors and 
I discover that he has removed and presum- 
ably sold about 500 volumes from my library 
consisting for the most part of travel, explor- 
ation, Northwest, Southwest, American Indians, 
military subjects and general books. To date 
I have traced only one book, Peary's "Farth- 
est North," which was sold in Boston. 

I would grealty appreciate the publication of 
this letter as it might be the means of enabling 
me to trace at least a portion of my property. 
There was also a painting of the Crystal Pal- 
ace Glacier, Greenland, and several articles of 
silver.

Ocean Rates Drop 

THE cost of shipping from Europe is now 
about 1 20 per cent above the pre-war level, 
but has receded considerably from the highest 
rates of 1920. 

Newly collected data from the Atlantic ports 
show that on general cargoes the cost per 100 
pounds from the United Kingdom was 17 cents 
pre-war, $1.20 January, 1920, and at present 
40 cents to 75 cents ; from Hamburg, which was 
20 cents before the war and which rose to $1.50 
January, 1920, the rate is now 45 cents.

Obituary Notes 

JAMES BRYCE 

VISCOUNT BRYCE died very suddenly at Sid- 
mouth England on January 22. 

He was one of the foremost scholars of poli- 
tics and government in the world. This repu- 
tation he first acquired with the publication of 
"The Holy Roman Empire," a dissertation pub- 
lished when he was only 24 years old. He was 
for six years the Ambassador from Great 
Britain to this country and did more for the 
betterment of Anglo-American relations than 
any of his contemporaries. He was a famous 
mountain climber, and had scaled many peaks 
hitherto considered impossible. One of these 
was Mt. Ararat. He was a skilled linguist, 
writing and speaking six languages fluently in 
addition to English. 

James Bryce was born in Belfast, Ireland, 
May 10, 1838. He was educated at the Univer- 
sity of Glasgow, and later became a scholar 
at Trinity College, Oxford, where he took his 
degree in 1862. For fifteen years he practised 
as a barrister. More than thirty universities in 
all parts of the world have awarded him their 
highest honorary degrees. 

Lord Bryce's famous works include : 

"The Flora of the Island of Arran," 1859; 
"The Holy Roman Empire," 1862 ; "Report on 
the condition of Education in Lancashire," 1867 ; 
"The Trade Marks Registration Act, with In- 
troduction and Notes on Trade Mark Law," 
1877; "Transcaucasia and Ararat," 1877; "The 
American Commonwealth," 1888; "Impressions 
of South Africa," 1897; "Studies in History 
and Jurisprudence," 1001 ; "Studies in Contem- 
porary Biography," 1003; "The Hindrances to 
Good Government," 1009; "South America: 
Observations and Impressions," 1912; "Univer- 
sity and Historical Addresses." 1913; "Essays 
and Addresses on War," 1918; "Modern De- 
mocracies," 1921. 

JOHN KENDRICK BANGS. 

JOHX KENDRICK BANGS, the author, died at 
Atlantic City on January 21. He was taken 
511 about two weeks before and two operations 
have been necessary. The third was aban- 
doned before it was completed because of 
the author's weakness and he did not retrain 
consciousness at the end. About two weeks 
ago it was thought he could not live twenty- 
four hours, but his characteristic humor camo 
to his aid and to the amazement of his phy- 
sicians he rallied. 

He was born in Yonkers, May 27, 1862. He 
graduated from Columbia in 1883, and there- 
after studied law. He was well known in 



civic and political circles as well as among 
men of letters. In 1918 he went to France 
for the Y. M. C. A. and the American Com- 
mittee for Devastated France. One of his lec- 
tures was interrupted by an air raid. He 
is survived by his wife and three sons. 
The list of his works includes : 
"Roger Camerden," 1886; "Katherine," 1887; 
"The Lorgnette," 1887; "Mephistopheles," 
1888; "New Waggings of Old Tales," 1888; 
"Tiddley winks Tales." 1890; "The Tiddley- 
winks Poetry Book," 1890; "In Camp With 
a Tin Soldier," 1891 ; "Coffee and Repartee," 
1893; "The Water Ghost," 1893; "Three 
Weeks in Politics," 1894; "The Idiot," 1895; 
"Mir. Bonaparte of Corsica," 1895 ; "A House- 
Boat on the Styx," 1895; "A Rebellious 
Heroine," 1896; "The Pursuit of the House 
Boat," 1897. "Paste Jewels," 1897 ; "The Man- 
tle Piece Minstrels," 1897; "Ghosts I Have 
Met," 1898; "Peeps at People," 1898; "The 
Enchanted Typewriter," 1899; "Cobwebs From 
a Literary Corner," 1899; "The Idiot 
at Home," 1900; "Olympian Nights," 1902; 
"Uncle Sam, Trustee," 1902; "Emblemland," 
1962; "Over the PJum Pudding," 1902; 
"Molly and the Unwise Man," 1902; "Pro- 
posal Under Difficulties," 1905; "The 
Worsted Man," 1905; "Lady Teazle," 

JOHN CHAPMAN ROCKWELL 
JOHN CHAPMAN ROCKWELL, who died in Port 
Chester, N. Y., on January 4th, was widely 
known as a schoolman and a bookman. He 
was born in Danbury, Conn., sixty-two years 
ago, and his early education was acquired in 
the common schools of that section. He en- 
tered the teaching profession upon his gradua- 
tion from the Potsdam Normal School and. 
after teaching for several years in Bronxville. 
he assumed charge of the local schools system 
of Port Chester. Later he purchased a con- 
trolling interest in the Schermerhorn Teach- 
ers' Agency. He subsequently retired from 
that connection to become district superin- 
tendent in Westchester County. At the time 
of his death, he was an agent for Hinds, Hay- 
den & Eldredge, Inc., of New York. He was 
widely acquainted in New York State and 
New England and numbered very many warm 
personal friends among the schoolmen and 
bookmen with whom he came in contact. 

New York Booksellers Meet 

"THE New York Booksellers' League held its 
1 first dinner of the year at the Hotel Bree- 
vprt on January i8th. The evening's speak- 
ers included, in addition to the Hon. David 
O'Connell who presided in the absence of Mr. 
Wilson. Mr. Shaw Desmond, author of "Gods," 
"Passion." "Democracy," etc., and Mr. John 
Farrar, editor of the Bookman. Mr. William

announced that nine new members had been 
added.

Rare Books, Autographs and Prints 



OVER 1,000 rare old Japanese prints from 
the collections of A. Alexis Rouart and 
Vicomte de Sartiges of Paris will be sold 
February 6 and / at the American Art Gal- 
leries. 

In a recent issue of The Dickensian of 
London in commenting upon overseas branches 
of the Dickens Fellowship it stated that Toronto 
now had a membership of 496, Montreal of 
310 and New York 200. A new branch has 
lately been formed in Seattle, Wash. 

It seemed like old times to hear one rare 
book after another knocked down to "G. D. S. 
Estate" at the last sale at Anderson's. Harry 
Hymes, who has been identified so many years 
with the Smith Book Shop, executed the 
auction commissions. The famous old book 
shop has been doing a lively business from 
the very beginning of the season. 

The manuscript of a hitherto unknown 
novel by Guy de Maupassant entitled "Le 
Docteur Heraclius Gloss" has been discovered 
by the heirs of the French writer and has 
just appeared in La Revue de Paris in two 
instalments. This novel was written, it ap- 
pears, between 1875 and 1877 when de Mau- 
passant was between twenty-five and twenty- 
seven years of age. 

James F. Drake was among the very first 
of dealers to foresee the present popularity 
of first editions of modern authors and backed 
his judgment by laying in a heavy stock that 
he has been able to sell at attractive prices 
and at a handsome profit. Mr. Drake, too, 
was fore-handed when colored plate books and 
the rarities of early English literature were 
in most demand. And what particularly 
pleases his customers, especially those who 
have been with him longest, is that they have 
constantly profited from his foresight. Gen- 
erally they have been able to get the books 
most in demand at the right prices. 

John Daggett, writing of Henry E. Hunt- 
ington in the Los Angeles Times, says that 
"twelve years ago Mr. Huntington did not 
possess any more books than the average suc- 
cessful business man who has a leaning tow- 
ard literature. His achievement of to-day is 
the result of the application of those same 
qualities which made him a successful busi- 
ness man. Organization, concentration and 
foresight responding to a conviction impelled 
him to grasp am opportunity never before 
offered in the world's history the fact that 
by a coincidence a number of the largest 
private libraries became available thru sale 
within a short period of years. Counting not 
the cost, Mr. Huntington's self -voiced convic- 
tion was to consolidate those nrivate libraries 
which represented the life efforts of notable 
connoisseurs. No more startlinsr achievement 



can be found in the ami.iN <> finance than 
the fulfillment of Mr. Hunting. m'> vision." 

The Revue de Mondes of Paris has recentl) 
published a lot of letters written during the 
early years of the last century by Lai ;., 
and never published before. ' In' the 
duction Comte d'Haissonville of the French 
Academy declares that Lafayette'* fame and 
popularity has greatly increased in France 
since General Pershing landed on French soil 
and that the editing of these letters has been 
a labor of love. The letters now pul>lUhe<i 
have been preserved for more than a century 
by the heirs of Mme. de Steel. Some of them 
date from the time he was a prisoner of the 
Prussians in Germany. After his release thru 
the efforts of Napoleon he felt that it . 
not be well for him to return to Fram 
projected another visit to the United > 
There are many evidences that the affection 
of Lafayette for the land whose independence 
he helped to win never wavered. In a Mtr' 
to Mme. de Stael, on the eve of war between 
the United States and France, he speaks of 
the "imminent hostilities between the two re- 
publics which, above all others, I wi 
see united."
