And the Dial, the most severely critical of 
the literary magazines, calls it in the second 
review received: "A novel full of secret

possibility of writing a profound study of ad-

delicacy and humor of an entertaining story/'

of this volume is attested in the introduction written 
by CLEMENCEAU, the "Tiger of France," to 
whom the author, ANDRE TARDIEU, was con-

AVON'S HARVEST By Edwin Arlington Robinson 

Mr. Edwin Arlington Robinson, author of "The Three Taverns" which proved 
to be one of the most successful books in the field of poetry last year, is now offering 
"Avon's Harvest" to the public. This book is a dramatic monologue, written in blank 
verse. It tells the story of a man literally devoured by fear. The explanation finally 
attempted by Avon enlists the reader's sympathy and prepares the way for a tragic 
conclusion. $1.50 


The skill that appeared in "Leg-end," one of the literary achievements of last 
year, is again shown in this clever play of modern times and modern thought. 

A woman, divorced from a man supposed to be insane, is just about to remarry 
when the husband suddenly appears, sane, and deeply in love with her. This dramatic 
situation Miss Dane brings to a conclusion with her accustomed finesse. $2.00 



Lyman Abbott, author of "The Great Companion," "The Other Room," "The 
Temple," etc., has, himself, given a resume of his latest book: "This volume is an 
endeavor to state simply and clearly the results of sixty years of Bible Study, and 
more than sixty years of Christian experience." "What Christianity Means to Me" 
evinces profound thinking and is well worth reading. $i./5 


The First Volume in Sty? (ftambriig? Eititum of S>IjakF0p*ar? 

Cloth. 16 $1.40 

Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch and Mr. J. Dover Wilson, who have edited the book 
and written the introduction, notes and glossary, have combined with Mr. Harold 
Child, who has contributed a stage history of the play, to give the public a truer and 
more conservative text. Also, for the first time, these men have placed the dramatic 
punctuation of the old texts within reach of the modern reader by a simple system of 
translation which will require no effort to follow. The spelling is modern, save where 
the original gives help to the meaning, ease to the scansion, or grace to the rime. 

The publication of "The Tempest" as the first volume in The Cambridge Edition 
of Shakespeare, is a notable event especially gratifying to Shakespeare lovers. 

These books may be bought of your bookseller or ordered direct from the publisher.

Old Titles Missing Too 

DISCUSSION of books and reading has 
become a much more general habit in 
newspapers and periodicals than ever 
before in the past, testifying to the increased 
general interest in the subject. An editorial 
in the Saturday Evening Post means a wide 
range of readers that promotes discussion that 
will always be of interest. The editorial in the 
March igth issue is headed "Real Books" and 
begins "The (high price of new books will 
prove a blessing in disguise if only they have 
the effect of setting people to reading some of 
the old ones." 

The suggestion to turn to the old books is 
one that is made repeatedly and deserves re- 
peating. At the same time, the writer of this 
editorial may be misleading in suggesting that 
the 'high cost of book-making affects the new 
books only. The old "standards" have been 
just as much affected by the increasing costs 
as have the new titles, and in fact in a larger 
percentage, because their price is so largely 
a question of manufacturing cost that the 
price level must reflect each change and in- 
crease in either printing, paper or binding. 

One of the real misfortunes that has come 
from the cost situation has been the putting 
out-of-print of many good titles whose worth 
has been proved and which would be in de- 
mand if they could be printed at a price that 
the public would pay. The publishers are ask- 
ing for a reduction in the printing scale, very 
largely because of this need of putting back 
proved books into print, so that the argument 
that high prices are peculiar to new 'books may 
somewhat miss its , point.

No one, however, could be more hospitable 
to the further idea suggested by the Post ed- 
itorial than the bookseller. "Certain Amer- 
icans need Americanization almost as much 
as the swarthy immigrants at Ellis Island. 
Very few of us know as much as we should 
of the history of our country. . . . These mat- 

ters are well worth reading about, either in the 
pages of Bancroft, Fiske, Trevelyan and 
Beveridge, or in those of a dozen of less fa- 
miliar authors." In fact we seem to hear in 
this a reflection of the book-trade's "America 

Will Plugging Alone Do It? 

THE Committee which has been directing 
the Year Round Bookselling plan has re- 
cently sent out a questionnaire asking the 
retailers for comments and suggestions. The 
reports so far received have been most en- 
thusiastic, showing that retailers have found 
a genuine help in the material that came to 
hand. One negative report, however, ex- 
presses another point of view, an unsigned 
comment reading as follows: 

"All bunk! There is only one thing to in- 
crease a business and that is close application 
to it and everyday commonsense applied to the 
clientele one "has to serve. Added to that is 
keeping on the job continually and hustling." 

This comment brings up concretely the ques- 
tion as to. whether the primal American virtues 
of application and hustle are sufficient business 
virtues. It is often found that the business 
man who attributes most of his success to 
these two virtues really has combined with 
them many other business assets, including 
vision, enthusiasm and organizing capacity. In 
a year when all are praising the brave trip 
of the Pilgrims it would be hard to make a 
good case by proving that if the Pilgrims had 
stayed in England or Holland and used com- 
monsense and hustle that they would have been 
just as happy and successful. A man with a 
right vision of what his business may mean to 
his community is a far better merchant and 
a better worker than the one who believes that 
the sum total of business needs are ten hours 
a day on the floor. 

Saturday half holidays were fought by the 
people who said that application and long hours 
were the only things that counted. The sum- 
mer vacations which clear the brain and build 
for real business success were fought as being 
a waste of time. 

The merchandising plan which conceived in- 
creasing the whole country's use of bicycles 
was a., pipe dream to many manufacturers. 
They thought that all they needed was appli- 
cation and hustle, but the big idea has doubled 
their business. It was probably very visionary 
to conceive of increasing the national consump- 


The Publishers' Weekly 

tion of oranges. The grower, some said, had 
better stick to his farm and let the market take 
care of itself, but somehow a large enough 
group was got together to try the other pro- 

Retail merchants used to keep apart, fearing 
that any contact with a rival would mean sim- 
ply time taken away from their own affairs. 
Now, there is scarcely a merchant of any 
success who does not work in the local mer- 
chants' association, plan special campaigns and 
work for the good of his city. People used 
to laugh at the farmer once as a backward 
person, but the farmer now taxes 'himself to 
hire a county agent that he may learn to run 
his farm better. 

That sort of vision has been supplementing 
application and hustle. Fortunately in Amer- 
ican business there is, in practically every in- 
dustry and merchandising field, an increasing 
group of men who will take of their time and 
draw on their imagination to conceive their 
business in better and more substantial terms 
than it has yet arrived at. These groups will 
organize to put the ideas thru and then the 
business of the following decade will show re- 
sults, results that usually come not only to 
those who have done the work but to those 
who have been willing to ride on the tide carp- 
ing on the way. 

No one has shown closer application and 
more industry than the booksellers of the last 
fifty years in England and America, but indus- 
try and application are not enough or this 
book business of ours would be among the 
most prosperous in the world. There are 
problems larger than those that can be solved 
at any single desk even in a ten hour day 
or a sixty hour week, and, while there is no 
cure-all, and every plan may have its faults, 
and many may need to be discarded or com- 
pletely revised, the criticism should be on the 
plan, and not against the idea of co-operative 

In St. Paul the citizens had come to believe 
that the book really had its therapeutic value, 
and the hospitals demanded full library service. 
In February the Public Library made a drive to 
obtain sufficient books for the 'hospital service, 
an extension that they would not be able to 
make without a large new stock of books 
which their regular funds could not' supply. A 
special drive was made, and as a result thou- 
sands of books were obtained for this pur- 
pose. In the St. Paul Book & Stationery 
Company one of its windows as well as one 

of the largest tables was given over to the 
display of books suitable for this service. 
Special saleswomen, beribboned with a badge 
marked "Hospital Service," helped to get the 
idea across, and to direct people to the kind 
of books that the library wanted for this pur- 
pose. The bookstore reports that the idea is 
extremely popular, and that in other centers 
thruout the Middle West the importance of 
hospital service, one of the fine benefits of the 
American Library Association War Work, is 
becomingly increasingly appreciated. Sioux 
City was a pioneer in this movement, and now 
St. Paul comes with the same idea carried out 
with enthusiasm. 

Three Months' Hard Reading 

ANEW York magistrate has sentenced a 
small boy in Flushing to three months' 
reading at the local public library, for 
too much loafing on the streets. This new 
method of encouraging the reading habit will 
be hailed with interest by those who are inter- 
ested in the book and its influence. The judge's 
idea was undoubtedly based on good observa- 
tion, tho there may be slight doubt as to 
whether it would be advantageous to the 
library to have it become connected^ in the 
minds of the young people with judicial sen- 
tences. The judge's particular recommenda- 
tion was Dickens and Hawthorne. This sen- 
tence should not be applied without some dis- 
crimination, as many a young reader who came 
upon those authors at the wrong volume in 
their early 'teens will remember that these 
books did not make any real impression. Per- 
haps the librarian had better be given some 
liberty in this matter. 

National Catholic Press Month 

THE idea suggested by the Religious Book 
Week Committee has found happy co- 
operation from the Catholic publishing circles 
which have developed the idea along their 
own lines. Catholic book publishers, with the 
co-operation of numerous bookstores thru- 
out the country, made March a "Catholic 
Book Month," and the National Catholic Wel- 
fare Council urged all of those interested 
in Catholic reading to adopt a program for 
March under the title of "National Catholic 
Press Month." Such emphasis on the value 
of reading, whether in periodicals or books, 
is urged as a means of increasing the influence 
of the pulpit, and it will bring the matter home 
to many households.

Motion Picture Plots and Their Sources 

By Martha P. Robinson 

A MOTION' picture company can be 
roughly divided into three parts : the 
sales department, the studio, and the 
scenario department. 

The sales department is the commercial 
end, and consists of the publicity men, ad- 
vertisers, salesmen, etc. 

The studio, with its brilliant lights, tem- 
peramental stars, and eccentric directors, may 
be called the artistic end. It is most inter- 
esting to the public, consequently its own 
publicity men, as well as numerous outsiders, 
have written it up thousands of times. 

The scenario department may be called the 
literary section. Tho considered the most im- 
portant of all, by those who know, it has 
never been written of, and the public has been 
left in ignorance as to how the material for 
the plays is secured. 

The Hopeful Editor. 

Let us say, first, that the word "scenario" 
is a misnomer for this department. A s_cen- 
ario is a working script used by the director 
and his men in the studio. It gives stage 
directions, all spoken words, titles, etc., and 
special writers are employed at the studios 
to do this scenario work. They very often 
change the story materially from its original 
form, as the screen play is a separate art in 
itself. Miss June Mathis, of the Metro Cor- 
poration, is one of the most brilliant exam- 
ples of a scenario writer, the latest of her 
works being the scenario of "The Four 
Horsemen of the Apocalypse." But the scen- 
ario department is often entirely separated 
from these writers. It consists of a principal 
editor and his staff of assistant editors, who 
handle all plays, books, stories, and original 
manuscripts that are sent to the company 
for reading and selection. Almost all the large 
motion picture companies have scenario de- 
partments in New York, where most of the 
material for the plays is gathered, tho there 
is a scenario department at every studio as 
well. The studios, with few exceptions, are 
all situated in southern California, where the 
brilliant sunlight and warm weather all year 
round permits of the taking of out-of-door 
scenes at almost any time. 

The material for plays is gathered from 
four different sources : legitimate plays, 
novels, magazine stories, and original sto- 
ries written directly for the screen. There is 
an assistant editor for each of tRese branches, 
in the large companies, vvhile the scenario 
editor is at the head of all and has the 
final decision to make before the story is 
sent to the studio. 

And may I say a word, in passing, about 
these men and women, the scenario editors? 
Without exception, they are a delightful set 
of people courteous, polite and patient even 
to the bore who occasionally manages to 

elude the vigilance of the outer office; they 
are hardworking, keen-witted, and have a 
most wonderful store of optimism. Over 
their doors should be written: 
"Hope Springs Eternal in the Human Breast," 
for they are always good-tempered, no matter 
how many disappointments they have in a 
day. And no matter how much worthless 
material they have been called upon to read, 
there is always, with them, that wonderful 
plot just around the corner. Only the other 
day one of these editors said to the writer 
"I make a point of trying to see every- 
one who asks for an interview to talk of a 
play or book he wishes to submit; for if I 
refuse someone, he may have the very plot 1 
have been longing for." These editors will 
also take infinite pains in describing to au- 
thors, agents, and others who submit mate- 
rial, the requirements of their especial stars. 
For it can readily be understood that each 
star must have a particular kind of "vehicle" 
for his or her style of acting and beauty. 
Marguerite Clark, for instance, does not act 
in the "vamp" plays so loved by Theda Bara, 
nor does Wallace Reid, the depictor of so- 
ciety and college youths, care to act in the 
plays of the great Northwest, where the hero 
is of the rough cave-man style. All this has, 
as a rule, to be explained to the authors 
of manuscripts who send in very unsuitable 
plots plots that might be readily accepted if 
sent to the company which has that special 
type of actor or actress. This phase of the 
work is only one of the many which try the 
patience of the editor and his assistants 
And of the many manuscripts submitted in 
a month, about ninety-five per cent have to be 
returned, either as too poor in plot, or un- 
suited to the company's needs. _ '' 

Jobs for the Leisure Class. 

One assistant editor has charge of the 
legitimate plays. She has several translators 
busy on foreign plays, both modern and old. 
The play's having been a failure on the stage 
does not always make a difference, as the plot 
may be good for a motion picture, if changed 
slightly. The modern plays running in New 
York are seen and written up by one of 
this editor's staff. This writing Is a short 
synopsis, with two carbons^ one of the car- 
bons goes into the files for future reference, 
another is sent in to the scenario editor if 
the play is thought worth while, so that he 
may consider buying the picture rights be- 
fore someone else gets them. All synopses 
for a motion picture company have two car- 
bons whether they are of books, magazine 
stories, or plays. 

The magazine editor has a staff of readers 
working constantly. Among them is a small 
group of translators, for foreign, magazines 
are regularly subscribed for, and anything 


The Publishers' Weekly 

that has a good plot is synopsized. This 
synopsis is read by the magazine editor, and 
if considered good, is sent to the scenario 
editor. Here, as in all the departments, 
copies of every synopsis are kept for refer- 

The book editor, in some companies, has 
a staff of readers in the office, but most of the 
big companies give out the books to men and 
women who take them home, read them, and 
make synopses of them. It is also custom: 
to give out tjie longer plays to these read- 
ers, as they make tedious reading and tak^ 
up much valuable time. These plays are paid 
for as the books are usually five dollars 
apiece. This work is done usually by young 
men and women who have literary tendencies, 
and much more important have independent 
incomes, and do not have to depend on this 
work for a living. This reader of a book 
makes the usual two carbon copies. And 
usually it is left to the discretion of this 
reader as to whether a long or" short synop- 
sis is required. If the book is unusually good, 
a ten-page synopsis; if fairly good, seven or 
eight pages ; if poor, four pages. Some com- 
panies maintain that a good, clear synopsis 
can be given in three pages, and do not wish 
a longer one. With this three-page synopsis 
is written, on a filing-card, a two-paragraph 
resume of the book, this very condensed form 
to be filed for ready reference. 
Complete Files. 

The book editor reads the synopses brought 
in, and if one seems good, she sends it with 
the book to the scenario editor. The filing 
system of these companies is very complete. 
To show how thoroly the field of fiction is 
covered, I will quote one instance. 

Several years ago I was talking to Mr. 
MacAlarney, then scenario editor of the Fa- 
mous Players-Lasky Company. I mentioned 
a book that had come out about ten years 
before, telling him the name of the author 
also, and advising him to consider it for a 
vehicle for one of his stars. He said he 
was not sure, but thought that the book had 
been read and synopsized, and rejected. As 
he was not certain, and I was insistent, he 
rang for a messenger, saying to me with a 
smile, "Let's test the thoroness of our read- 
ing department." The messenger came back 
to him in a short while with a synopsis of 
the book, got from their files. He glanced 
over it, and told me just why he had rejected 
it. This will show how very completely the 
field of fiction is canvassed for plots. For 
this book had not been considered a "best 
seller" and had not been particularly noted 
at the time of its publication. 

The manuscript editor takes charge of all 
the original scripts sent in by mail or express, 
and has her staff of readers in the office. 
These manuscripts which come direct to the 
company and not thru an agent are, as I 
said before, very often sent without regard 
to the needs of that especial company and 
are written by anyone, from the colored maid 
in a Southern boarding-house to the most 

celebrated authors of the English-speaking 
world. These latter, however, usually deal 
with a company thru their agents. But there 
is much that would be laughable in these 
mailed-in scripts, if they were not so pathetic. 
Most of the little, uneducated authors write 
with a veiled hint, saying that their story 
has been copyrighted, and so all attempts 
to defraud them will be punished by law. 
Many of them are written in broken English, 
and many written in pencil, and on yellow 
paper. I remember, when working for one 
of the companies, I received a large box, in 
which one vengeful colored "lady" had sent 
many pictures of herself, her husband, and 
the other woman, a "Yellow Girl," who had 
stolen his affections, after his wife had sup- 
ported him for years. The whole account 
was written out on rough "pad" paper, some 
of it in pencil, the rest in ink, the spelling 
and English very poor. She, the wife, was 
taking this very original way of "getting 
even" with her husband and the vampire who 
had stolen his affections. She begged us 
to make the whole story into a moving pic- 
ture, with the male character made up to look 
exactly like her husband, and the vampire to 
be true to life as well. Thus was she going 
to shame them into good behaviour. But very 
little of the material is as out of the ordinary 
as this most is stupid and without merit of 
any kind, but all is read as carefully as if 
it were valuable. 

That is the way the working force takes 
care of the material ; as to the way the mate- 
rial is gathered, each motion picture company 
has its special agencies which are looking 
for material for them, constantly, tho they 
receive material from all the agencies. Ori- 
ginally, these agencies simply placed manu- 
scripts with book and magazine publishers. 
Now they handle legitimate plays and mo- 
tion pictures as well. Usually, an author has 
some agent to represent him, and these 
agencies are sending a steady stream of 
books, stories, plays and galley-proofs to the 
motion picture companies. Then at times 
the picture company calls on its special 
agents to furnish a vehicle for some star in 
its company who is looking for a very ori- 
ginal plot. These agencies are the principal 
channel thru which the companies get their 

Some companies, also, offer prizes for good 
original plots, as Universal did for its star.

thors' League. 

All For Five Percent. 

Each company employs research workers 
some in this country and some abroad, all 
over the world, in fact, looking for suitable 
material for the stars. And individual agents, 
handling some one author's works, send or 
bring in material. 

Several of the scenario editors of big com- 
panies have been kind enough to give me some 
data on the subject of gathering material ; 
amoner them, Mr. Brownell, of the Universal ; 
Mr. Block, of the Goldwyn Corporation, and

Mr. Durant, of the Famous Players-Lasky. 
For lack of space, I will simply quote Mr. 

"We have forty thousand scripts a month, 
coming from all over the world," Mr. Durant 
said. "We have established agencies looking 
out for our needs, and we employ six trans- 
lators for the stories, plays and novels in 
foreign languages. There are eighty-one 
magazines a month read by our staff, and 
about one hundred and fifty original scripts 

come to the office a day, by mail or express. 
But of these scripts, ninety-five per cent are 

"Before a picture is made," he told me, "the 
story has to be approved by four different 
people: the scenario editor; then, when it is 
sent to the studio, the supervising director; 
then, the director who makes the picture; and 
the star who is to act in it. So you see how 
difficult it is to have a manuscript accepted." 

Books in South America 

TO say that South America, as a market, 
is increasingly interesting to the North 
American business man is to state a tru- 
ism. Perhaps the bookman has been slower 
than some of his fellow merchants to realize 
the possibilities of South American trade, but 
he is becoming aware of the republics south. 
In the March 5th number of the PUBLISHERS' 
WEEKLY, Waldon Fawcett, our Washington 
correspondent, discussed present conditions and 
future possibilities for the export of United 
States books to South America. In an Apple- 
ton book, recently published there are some in- 
teresting comments on American books in 
South America, in a chapter called, "What Do 
South Americans Think"? It is a chapter 
from "Straight Business in South America," 
by James H. Collins, special investigator on 
business subjects for the Saturday Evening 
Post, Philadelphia Public Ledger, Printers' 
Ink, etc. 

"In reality the Latin American countries are 
all isolated from one another so much so 
that Senor Carlos Silva Cruz, director of the 
Chilean National Library, is endeavoring to 
bring them closer together for the exchange 
of that technical, economic and scientific litera- 
ture so necessary for their material develop- 

"If a Chilean writes a useful book, it is 
read in his own country, but not in nearby 
Argentina or Peru, much less distant Central 
American countries, or Brazil, where Portugu- 
ese is the language. 

Double Distortion. 

"In no Latin American country does the 
reading public exceed a million people I mean 
that many people actually able to read. In 
some of the small countries it may be a few 
thousands. If Latin American books circu- 
lated widely in the different countries large 
editions could be published. But they don't, 
and the sale of a Latin American book is small, 
and publication seldom profitable. 

"As with news before our service was ex- 
tended to his daily papers, the South Ameri- 
can who knows anything at all of the United 
States thru reading about its people, work 
and ideals knows it only thru European 
books. In the main these are works written 
by foreign visitors to the United States, see- 
ing us thru French or other European spec- 
tacles. Thus there is a double distortion, and 

for the Latin American investigator bent upon 
adapting our practical achievements in his own 
country, a distance certain to defeat his efforts. 
"Very few American books are sold on the 
Southern continent because our publishers 
have not established outlets or connections. 
Each large city has its "English Bookstore," 
usually, but the stock in trade is chiefly Brit- 
ish fiction, with some American "best sellers,'* 
and scarcely a five-foot shelf of solider works, 
either British or American. The most enter- 
prising publishers are those in the United 
States issuing technical handbooks dealing 
with machinery, electricity, mining, chemistry, 
and like practical subjects. They seem to have 
worked out a scheme of distribution that lands 
their books where they are wanted, and other 
publishers in the United States and England 
ought to find out how they do it. 

Suggested Bureau. 

"Senor Cruz has a plan for breaking down 
the Chinese walls around different countries, 
and also the two continents. He suggests 
that the National Library in each country, in- 
cluding the United States, establish a bureau 
of Pan-American bibliographic information, 
cataloging its own data on economics, political 
organization, science, history, and literature, on 
a standard system. This information would 
then be exchanged by all the countries, and 
distributed to their universities, government de- 
partments, authors, editors, or whosoever might 
want it in his work. 

"Special information would also be furnished 
to investigators of special subjects, so that 
a Chilean interested in American educational 
methods, or Central American music, or Bra- 
zilian livestock improvement, could be put in 
touch with the latest facts. 

"The national libraries can also establish an 
international commerce in books, receiving: 
volumes of general interest from publishers 
in other countries, placing them in bookstores, 
and collecting money when sold. The vol- 
umes would have to be sent on approval of 
course, and unsold books taken back by the 
publishers, but after a time experience would 
unquestionably show which books arouse in- 
terest in other countries, and the mere access- 
ibility of the books would encourage their 
sale. From our standpoint there is every rea- 
son to make representative American books 
available on some such plan, because Latin 


The Publishers 9 Weekly 

America has a new interest in us since the 
war, and thousands of her young people are 
learning English. In the American depart- 
ment of the Chilean Library there are forty 
to fifty readers daily consulting our books on 
educational, economic, technical and other sub- 

"An increasing number of books dealing 
with South America has been published lately 
in the United States. One work in particular, 
the novel 'El Supremo,' indicated an unsus- 
pected desire of our* reading public to know 
more about our Southern neighbors than we 
had learned from adventure stories like those 
of Richard Harding Davis. This novel dealt 

with Paraguay in the days of the Dictator 
Francia. The period was one hundred years 
ago, and the author had never been in South 
America, but worked entirely from documents. 
His book contains many descriptions of South 
American people and their everyday life, and 
these seem to be most interesting to Ameri- 
cans, tho those people, and their life and man- 
ners have disappeared. 

"Following this new reading interest, steps 
are being taken to publish translations of 
South American books in the United States 
novels, and tales by authors in the different 
countries which depict their people and life 
at various periods." 

Adventures of a Bookseller 

By Ketch 

4 4X17 TILL you wait on me, please?" 

yy Mr. Ondeck turned from the shelves 
where he was assorting stock. 


."I am looking for a good book for a gift. 
Something really good." 

"I see. Fiction, perhaps?" 

"No-o. No, I think not. Fiction is so oh 
so passing, don't you think?" 

"Some of it. But here," picking up a small 
volume that had just come from the press, 
"here is a thing that I think will last." 

Miss Younglove looked at it dubiously. 

"I never heard of this author before." 

"No. He is a new writer." 

"I hardly think that answers. You see this 
is to be a gift" 

Mr. Ondeck looked shrewdly at her. She 
was young probably still in High School. 

"Ah!" said he. "A gift! Of course; then 
you want something of a permanent nature." 

She smiled up at him. 

"That is it! If I am to give hi give a 
book, I want it to be a book that will not just 
be read and thrown aside." 

"Of course not ! Well. That alters the case. 
Had you thought of anything? had anything 
in mind?" 

"No. Nothing particular. . . . Perhaps I'd 
better explain: You see I am giving this to 
a young man and I know he likes to read. But 
he doesn't like poetry." 


"He reads good things tho." 
"I should think then, th 

that one of the classics 
in a good leather binding would please him." 

"Perhaps. Show me something." 

Mr. Ondeck got out several Dumas, Dickens 
and Scott and spread them before her, but a 
sudden thought struck her. 

<f Oh, I'm afraid these would not do. They 
have a large library, and I'm sure these are all 
in it." 

So he got out more volumes and the process 
was duplicated, each volume eliminated for 
fear of duplication. So being a salesman he 
extended himself. 

"Yes," said he, taking off his glasses and 

assuming a comfortable pose, "Any of these 
books might be a duplicate of one in their li- 
brary, in fact any book you 'buy might be a 
duplication ; but of course we always allow the 
privilege of exchange." 

She looked displeased with the suggestion, 
however, and sensing her wis'h that the gift 
she chose should be retained, he hurried on. 

"But here is the point: A gift is different; 
one hates to exchange a gift. Matter of sen- 
timent you know. Why I have several books 
in my collection that are duplicates, but I would 
not part with them for anything, because they 
were given to me! Now 'here is a beautiful 
volume of Emerson's "Essays" always an 
acceptable book. It may duplicate, but 
then . . . ?" 

She smiled again at him. 

"I think I'll take it," said she. "What if 
they do have it in, their library; he will"- 
she blushed delightfully "He will want one 
of his own, cfon't you think?" 


"Have you a card that I can write on?" 

Mr. Ondeck produced the card and stood 
by w'hile she scribbled a message on it. Then 
she said, 

"I want you to deliver this. Can you get 
it .there to-day?" 

"I think so." 

"Send it to Henry Ateen at 10 Hamp- 
ton Court: and thank you so much for your 

Mr. Ondeck hurried toward the shipping 
room so as to get the book in the afternoon 
delivery, but as he went the card slipped out 
and fluttered to the floor. He saw it, how- 
ever, and stooped to pick it up, and before he 
realized what he was doing had read the 
short, swtct message it conveyed. 
Happy Birthday. 
Amo te. 

That was all, but 

Ondeck felt guilty, like an eavesdropper who 
cannot escape, and all day the incident lingered 
in his mind, and a vivid picture of the class 
room romance took him back to his own happy 
school davs. But he was not a sentimental 

April 2, 1921 


fellow, so he forgot it in time, until the sequel 
brought it back to him. Which it did by the 
appearance of Henry Ateen himself. He ap- 
proached Mr. Ondeck one day, and said in a 
matter of fact tone : 

"Do you exchange Socks?" 
"Glad to," said Ondeck with a smile. 
Mr. Ateen undid a parcel, and handed out 
a leather bound volume of Emerson's "Essays," 
and as he did so a card fluttered out of it 

onto the floor. The youth quickly recovered it 
and slipped it into his pocket, but Mr. On- 
deck had seen the inscription thereon. 

"Wha,t would you like in place of this?" 
inquired Ondeck, and try as he would he 
could not keep a note of coldness from his 

"Why ah well, have you anything on 

wireless ?" 

Editions De Luxe 

< 4 A MERICAN and English publishers 
/\ are showing themselves more and 
* ^ more inclined to follow a j.ractice 
which has long been in vogue with their 
French colleagues the issue of special limit- 
ed editions of new works by living authors," 
says an editorial in the New York Evening 
Post of March 23. "George Moore, in par- 
ticular, has adopted this method -of publica- 
tion in recent years, and by the sale of his 
books in advance to subscribers he has 
escaped from the uncertainties and exigencies 
of dependence upon the general public. Ill- 
disposed persons, unmoved by the subtle de- 
lights of the bibliophile, have insinuated that 
Mr. Moore has been actuated chiefly by the 
spirit of gain. Indeed, it is frequently as- 
serted that these limited editions are nothing 
better than a sordid speculation, a trap baited 
with some promise of scandal or indecency. 
Yet, as readers of the charming edition de 
luxe of George Moore's 'Avowals' and The 
Brook Kerith' know, there is nothing in 
either which would justify the charge. 

"In the Literary Supplement of the Lon- 
don Times Mr. Moore himself has been an- 
swering his detractors, and he has made a 
plea for these expensive limited editions 
which is well founded. He points out that 
only by means of such editions can the handi- 
craft of good printing be preserved in thi? 
age of machine setting and mechanical book 
production. The speculative element in sub- 
scribing to editions de luxe need not be de- 
cried. If these books increase in value it is 
because they are in themselves valuable as 
works of the printer's art. All that Mr. 

Moore suggests is that no collector should 
subscribe to a limited edition unless it con- 
tains a guarantee that 'the book has been 
hand-set from board to board.' The hand- 
setter, otherwise, is doomed to disappear in 
the wake of the wood engraver and the pot- 
ter. Already, he complains, it is difficult to 
get a new fount of hand-made type, for 'the 
craft of founding type is also being killed by 
automatic casting machinery.' - 

"As the results have shown in the case of 
his own works, Mr. Moore's method is prac- 
tical as well as ideal. In the days of Mor- 
ris and Ruskin, when the revival of handi- 
crafts was so eloquently preached, the realiz- 
ation did not justify the anticipation. The 
famous Kelmscott Press was rather too con- 
sciously decorative, and the books could not 
be expected to appeal to the reader who wanted 
something more than a beautiful ornament 
in the library. The publication of new works 
by his contemporaries could never become an 
essential feature of Morris's press. The ex- 
periment, therefore, had little effect upon the 
general business of publishing. To-day, on 
the contrary, under pressure of high manu- 
facturing costs, publishers are everywhere 
finding in the edition de luxe a way of escape. 
The delicate problem, however, still remains 
as to why subscribers for limited editions of 
George Moore and Joseph Conrad can more 
easily be found than for Bernard Shaw and 
H. G. Wells. The book collector is frequent- 
ly accused of being quite indifferent to the 
contents of books. Yet it is the authors whose 
works are 'mere literature' rather than intel- 
Ictual treatises who are collected." 

English Book-Trade News 

(From Our London Correspondent) 

PARIS, it is reported, is to have a national 
library that will talk. The chief of the 
Sorbonne Library is securing gramophone 
records reproducing the voice of the great men 
of modern France, including Marshal Joffre, 
Marshal Foch and Marshal Petain. Famous 
politicians, men of letters, and others whose 
names have become household words will all 
be recorded. 

Perkin Warbeck is a new publisher who 
starts his career with a new collection of books 

entitled The Florin Series. Other forthcom- 
ing books from the new publisher will be 
"Mice and Other Poems," by Gerald Bullett, 
"Home Made Verses," by D. B. Haseler and 
R. H. D'Elboux, and "Laughing Gas," by 
Marguerite Few. Mr. Perkin Warbeck in- 
tends to issue novels and stories at a later date. 

The famous house of W. H. Smith & Son 
of London "has inaugurated the following 
series of lectures : 

"The Modern Novel" by W. J. Locke. 


"Character in Business" by Lord Haldane. 
"Novelists of Today" by Sidney Dark. 
"Poetry" by John Drinkwater. 
"Bookselling from a Publisher's Point of 
View" by Sir Ernest Hodder Williams. 
"Dickens" by B. W. Matz. 
"Points in the Mutual Relations of Em- 
ployers and Employed" by Lord Asquith. 

These lectures are primarily for the staff of 
W. H. Smith & Sons, and those which have 
already been delivered have been extraordi- 
narily successful. 

There is hope, we are told by a writer in 
the London Daily News, of a book by Viscount 
Grey on natural history and country life sub- 
jects. His volume on dry-fly fishing, with its 
delicate knowledge and charm of atmosphere, 
is already almost a classic. His recent smaller 
one, of recreation papers, and a still more re- 
cent speech on habits in nature, have carried 
him nearer to the large work for which pub- 
lishers plague him. Its inception, and, given 
that, its progress, depends greatly on his eye- 
sight. The literateur who thus writes", prob- 
ably knows more about what is happening in 
literary London circles than anyone else. 
A while since he used to have a "Writers and 
Readers" column in the Daily Chronicle, but 
the vicissitudes of political life caused its ces- 
sation, but everyone is more than glad that the 
brilliant column is being continued in the fa- 
mous Daily News. 

Our writer goes on to say that there is a 
prospect of a good literary steeplechase in the 
autumn between Mrs. Asquith's second vol- 
ume of autobiography and Mr. Winston 
Churchill's memoirs. Margot wants her 
further pages out then, and is getting them 
ready. Winston will not wish his book to 
rest in the shade a moment after he has fin- 
ished with it. They have the same publisher, 
and he probably asks how two such spirited 
works will run together. 

That very clever writer in John O' London's 
Weekly, who is a brilliant novelist, with an 
international reputation, but who signs him- 
self under the name of "Elijah True" asked 
a London publisher why he bound all his nov- 
els in red. He looked at me for a moment, 
thinking, and then he said, "As you are not 
everybody, I'll tell you. Watch women, as 
I have purposely done, choosing novels at 
the libraries, and you'll find that they first 
look at red-bound ones. This is why I bind 
mine in red; it gives them the first chance 
with the woman reader, and if I get her you 
can have the man." 

The Bookseller commenting upon last year's 
happenings in the British book world said on 
reviewing the season's output, it was gener- 
ally said that, with some notable exceptions, 
there were fewer really good books than usual, 
and in the case of expensive illustrated gift 
books, again with exceptions, this was specially 
noticeable. Children's books, on the other 
hand, maintained a high standard of excel- 
lence. Spiritualistic literature was in good de- 
mand, but was somewhat difficult to handle, 
as sometimes one popular book seemed unable 

The Publishers' Weekly 

to maintain its popularity against newcomers 
in the same field. The fact that children's books 
were so excellent suggests that the boy and 
girl are being more carefully catered for, and 
perhaps that may be the result of the far 
reaching efforts being made in America to put 
the right book in the child's hands. This 
movement cannot be too earnestly pursued. 

In the social section of the Daily Mail we 
read that despite the obligations of Parliament 
and his duties as Colonial Secretary, Mr. Win- 
ston Churchill continues hard at work on his 
book upon the war, which may be published 
next year. It will consist of two volumes, the 
first ranging from 1911, when Germany tried 
to force France at Agadir, up to August, 1914, 
when the World War began. The second vol- 
ume will be longer. It will begin with the 
outbreak of war and end with the signing of 
peace. Not only will Mr. Churchill give per- 
sonal impressions of fighting on the front, but 
he will also cover the conflict ashore an.l afloat, 
and review the entire struggle in rela+ : to the 
Empire's share in it and his own efforts. The 
book is to be published by Messrs. Butter- 
worth in England, and by Messrs. Scribner in 

Temple Thurston's new play "The Wander- 
ing Jew" has achieved an extraordinary suc- 
cess. It was put on in London early in Sep- 
tember, and is still drawing crowded houses, 
and it looks as if it would do so for a long 
time to come. Matheson Lang reaches high 
water mark in his portrayal of the Jew. Some 
day the play will go to the provinces, but not 
while Londoners are rushing to see it in thou- 
sands. When it does, Matheson Lang will go 
with it. The play appeared in Holland (Am- 
sterdam) the, other day, with Louis de Vries 
in the title role. The audience gave the pro- 
duction an ovation. Sir Frank Benson is tak- 
ing it to South Africa ; while it will, in the 
near future, appear in Sweden. America will 
have the opportunity of seeing it this fall. 
Negotiations are in train for the appearance 
of the play in many other countries. The 
book form of the play in London has reached 
its third impression. The Putnams are the 
publishers, and they will issue it in America, 
at the same time that the play appears. Temple 
Thurston is now probably at the height of his 
career. "The Wandering Jew" has placed him 
in the front rank of living dramatists, he is 
easily one of the most successful novelists of 
the day, he writes delightful verse, and charm- 
ing essays, while 'his films are to be seen every- 
where. The cinematograph version of "The 
City of Beautiful Nonsense" is extraordinarily 
beautiful. His new novel is to be called "The 
Green Bough." 

Here are the twelve most popular nov- 
elists in Australia : Ethel Dell, Rex Beach, 
Marie Corelli, Zane Grey, Florence Barclay, 
Hall Caine, R. W. Chambers, Peter Kyne, 
Ridgwell Cullum, W. J. Locke, Gene Stratton 
Porter, Mary Roberts Rinehart. It is most 
interesting to note that six are English and 
six are American authors.

FRANK SHAY in 'his collection of "Sailor 
Chanties" entitled "Iron Men and Wooden 
Ships" has macje the following dedication :

"The Sea Surgeon" by Gabrielle D' Annunzio 
"The Sea Hawk" by Sabatini 
"A good many of these," writes Mr. McFee, 
"need no comment. Attention is not drawn 
to the individual items, but to the balance of 
the -whole. That is the test of the list. But 
there is good balance, a balance of power, and 
a balance of mere weight or prestige. It is 
power we are after here.

A Bookshop in Stratford 

MANY Americans will be interested to 
know, says Shan Bullock, London corre- 
spondent of the Chicago Evening Post, that the 
great distributing firm, W. H. Smith & Son, are 
about to build a bookshop on the site in High 
street, Stratford-on-Avon, wherein Shake- 
speare's second daughter, Judith, who was twin 
sister of Harriet, lived with her husband, 
Thomas Quiney. in a house called "The Cage," 
at the corner of Bridge street. Quiney"s lease 
of "The Cage" ran from 1616 to 1652. He 
himself was a vintner, a man of property and 
a town councilor. But trouble found him at 
last, and he died poor in London ; but Judith 
died in Stratford, aged 77. Portions of the 
old house still exist, and these, so far as pos- 
sible, will be preserved in the new building.

Printing Exhibition 

PUBLISHERS and students generally of 
the printing arts will be interested in the 
National Printing Exhibition to be held in 
New York during the week of April 25th at 
the I2th Regiment Armory. Man^ of the im- 
provements on machinery, which have been 
held secret, will have a public demonstration 
for the first time on opening night, and there 
will also be exhibited a new process, for which 
a big company has been formed, said to be so 
radical that it will revolutionize the lithograph- 
ing business. 

Inventive genius has given much attention 
to printing machinery during the past four 
years, and the result in the fine work, speed 
and convenience which has been achieved will 
be seen and studied by the visitors.

Good Book-Making 

TWO interesting examples of appropriate 
and striking book binding come from 
Houghton Mifflin Company, "Hunting the 
Fox" 'by Willoughby De Broke, very appro- 
priately bound with a bright red linen back 
and neat label, and with the title printed in 
red on the board side. The book itself is of 
English printing, but the binding has been 
done on this side. Also, "Cactus Center," a 
volume of poems by Arthur Chapman, bound 
in green buckram and a dull green side with 
a conventionalized cactus design in dark green 
that is particularly appropriate and well ex- 

Putnam's have made an attractive book of 
their "Mirrors of Downing Street," the many 
portraits being well placed in relation to the 
text matter, so that the famous Englishmen 
catch the eye of anyone who picks up the 

Marshall Jones has added a second volume 
to its Amherst Books, a series that is being 
well managed, both as to typography and bind- 
ing. There is a peculiar pleasure in these 
days in finding a book with a gilt top, so sel- 
dom are they seen. This second volume of 
the series is Professor Genung's "The Life 

Knopf has used one of his characteristic 
bindings very effectively in Conrad Aiken's 
"Punch, the Immortal Liar." A feature of 
many Knopf books which is appreciated by 
the readers and should be much welcomed by 
the author is the printing, opposite to the 
title page, of a list of the author's previous 
works, regardless of whether they are on the 
Knopf list or not. 

A nature book in which the problem of 
placing illustrations and the printing in gen- 
eral has been exceptionally well worked out 
is "Plantation Gam# Trails" by Archibald 
Rutledge (Houghton" Mifflin Co.). The half- 
tones, tho small, are extremely well printed 
on special insert paper. 

A broad octavo of very pleasing appear- 
ance has been designed by Macmillan for 
the publishing of Agnes Laut's "The Fur 
Trade of America," and a red cloth bind- 
ing with gilt back, characteristic of its 
dignified custom. The use of the lining paper 
as the place for the map has some disad- 
vantages as bringing a small section into the 
crease, but at the same time the convenience 
of this offsets the disadvantage, as the map 
cannot become torn out or damaged and is 
always instantly turned to, no matter what part 
of the text -is being read. 

Alfred Fowler, of Kansas City, whose publi- 
cations of book-plate material have placed the 
public so much is -his debt, has just issued a 
slender volume of great beauty entitled "J. J. 
Lankes-Painter-Engraver on Wood" by Bolton 
Brown. The reproduction of the wood-cuts is 

beautiful, indeed, and will give real pleasure 
to the lover of Bewick. The typography and 
binding are simple, in keeping with the char- 
acter of the book, and the little tail-piece be- 
low the list of illustrations is one of the best 
of the wood-cuts. 

A book catalog from the Dunster Bookshop 
in Cambridge deserves attention as a piece of 
printing, and the magic initials B. R. in the 
back explain why the format is so extremely 
pleasing. The catalog is a i6-page list of 
books from the library of John Williams 
White, printed at the press of William E. 
; R,udge from layout by Bruce Rogers. The 
use of the dull red on the cover and for sub- 
headings has been most delicately worked out 
as only Rogers could. It seems a loss to the 
book-trade that there should not be more of 
his work in book form rather than in catalogs 
or commercial advertising, as a great printer 
must certainly be remembered longer by a 
book, no matter how simple, than by the best 
of Packard advertisements. 

Bruce Rogers has also printed for Small, 
Maynard & Company a beautiful little vol- 
ume in his best style, the work having been 
done at the Rudge Press in Yonkers. The 
book is called "The Journal of . Madame 
Knight," a limited edition, containing a folded 
map of Southern New England, showing 
Madame Knight's trip, and bound in half 
cloth with a very attractive pattern. 

Mr. Updike's genius in book planning ^ is still 
following the fine series of "Scandinavian 
Classics," which is being published by the 
American- Scandinavian Foundation, the series 
now reaching the sixteenth volume. These 
books are a joy to the eye and a pleasure to 
handle, both in typography, binding and gen- 
eral effectiveness. 

Huebsch has made a small octavo of "The 
Journal of Rosalind," a clean-cut piece of 
press-work, and with a half cloth binding, 
with the board side imprinted with the seven 
branch candlesticks. 

A pair of handsome octavos that arc at- 
tractive to handle and read are the two vol- 
umes made by Scribner of "The Life of 
W'hitelaw Reid" by Royal Cortissoz. The type 
page is particularly attractive for biography, 
and, the blue binding and gilt back are of suit- 
able dignity. 

A decidedly pleasant page of type is shown 
in "Father Allan's Island" by Amy Murray, 
published by Harcourt Brace & Company. 
There is much use of italics required in the 
book, and the font used has a decorative value 
that makes the page even more pleasant to the 
eve than would be a solid page of Roman. 
The volume has gone thru the presses with 
real care, and the impression of the type is of 
a true and even character.

A New Canadian Trade Paper 

THE Canadian Stationer and Book-Trade 
Journal has been launched at Toronto by 
Findlay I. Weaver, who has 'been for ten years 
the editor of the Canadian Bookseller and 
Stationer, published by M. A. MacLean Pub- 
lishing Company. Before entering into its edi- 
torial work, Mr. Weaver had had practical 
experience as a retail bookseller and stationer 
in Kitchener, Ontario, and therefore comes to 
the new field with good equipment. Mr. 
Weaver has been very active in general book- 
trade matters in Canada outside of his edi- 
torial work.

A Good Book Review 

THE characteristics of a good book review 
were outlined by Henriette Weber in the 
Chicago Journal of Commerce of March 
5, as follows: 

A veteran newspaper editor was once ap- 
proached as to his definition of a successful 
editorial. His recipe was simple: "First, have 
something to say and know what you are talk- 
ing about. Second, say it as simply and di- 
rectly as you can. Third, quit." That is almost 
as terse as Oliver Wendell Holmes' definition 
of a pink tea: "Giggle, gabble, gobble and 

Now, while brevity is not the soul of a 
book review, saying it "as simply and directly 
as you can" is. You may put personality into 
your opinion of a book, in fact you should do 
so, if what you have to give is to be of any 
value, but you should convey your ideas to 
the reader by the short cut of a straight line. 
Digression and deviation distract without im- 
pressing. Holding to your point of view, un- 
til you have hammered it into the conscious- 
ness of your audience is what gets you some- 
where. The impression you give of a book 
should mean something. Hiding your light 
under the bushel of fine but empty phrasing, 
filling 1 your "space" by the silly subterfuge 
of producing a kind of movie scenario outline 
of the plot (if it be fiction), or treating a 
"heavier" work by the easy method of making 
an endless chain of the chapter heads with a 
word or two between by way of circumvent- 
ing the missing link all these tricks of the 
"easy" review turn the book review guilty of 
it, into hack work. 

Leave something to your reader's imagina- 
tion, stir his curiosity, excite his suspicion, if 
you must, but whatever you do, treat your 
reader as tho he had some intelligence. Some- 
times he actually has more than the book re- 

Talking about a book, in your newspaper, is 
a privilege, not a job, and this medium between 
the potential buyer of books and the publisher 
may as easily be a magnet as a deterrent. 
After all there is much news in books and 
their authors, much that every harried man 
and woman will pause to glance thru, even 
in the usual scurried reading of the daily 
paper. And that is just as true of anything 
written about any of the arts, not only litera- 
ture. But there must be a point of human 
contact, or your review falls into the limbo of 
dead things where abide the technical criticism 
that delights to expatiate on the F sharp in 
the third measure of a Bach prelude, or the 
faulty brush stroke in the lower left hand 
corner of the second painting in the third 
line of the fourth room in the new art ex- 

Details are justifiable only when you watch 
votir details. Saying it "simply and directly" 
is an art too little practiced. Wasn't it Mme. 
de Stael who wrote to a friend: "Pardon this 
long letter. I had no time to write a short 


The Publishers' Weekly 

Religious Book Week and After 

THE efforts of the Committee interested in 
furthering the sale of religious books led 
to a remarkable amount of book pub- 
licity which could hardly have helped to stim- 
ulate the interest in religious books and re- 
ligious reading in all parts of the country; 
and the Committee, having reviewed the re- 
sults, has decided to take up the effort again 
next fall and plan for further study on the 
problem of religious books and their distribu- 

Much of the publicity, of course, was in the 
channels not usually watched by the book-trade 
in general, but the general magazines as well 
as the special religious press did give the 
subject unusual attention. The Literary 
Digest reproduced a poster and gave an ac- 
count of the effort; as did the Independent; 
and the New York Times in its Book Sup- 
plement, the New York Herald in its Sunday 
Book Section, and many other leading papers 
gave prominent attention to the idea. Special 
Religious Book Week numbers containing an 
extraordinary amount of interesting and stim- 
ulating material appeared in such papers as 
the Baptist, March 5th; the Intelligencer, 
March 2nd; Christian Register, March igth; 
Lutheran Christian Herald, March 8th ; Sun- 
day School Times, February 26th; and in the 
Continent, the Watchword, the Central Chris- 
tian Advocate, Presbyterian of the South, Neiv 
Era Magazine, etc. Over a score of special 
articles were contributed for use for the cen- 
tral headquarters by well known writers. 

The large religious organizations took an 
unusual interest in the effort, and over 30,000 
clergymen were circularized directly by let- 
ters from denominational headquarters, 17,000 

Books In Baby Week 

THERE might be considerable good work 
done by the bookstores in connecting their 
merchandise with the now nationally ob- 
served Baby Week of the spring. There are 
no more steadily selling books in the average 
store than books about babies and their care, 
and none that can be sold with greater satis- 
faction. Baby Week is not observed on the 
same dates, but is usually celebrated in the first 
week in May or the last in April. 

The tendency in this direction has been de- 
veloping for about five years, and the first call 
for its observance was sent out by the Chil- 
dren's Bureau in the Department of Labor. 
The General Federation of Women's Clubs 
was co-operating with them. In 1916 out of 
fifty cities of 100,000 population only three 
failed to plan celebrations. Some states so 
fully developed the propaganda that there was 
scarcely a town that did not have its Baby 
Week. Booksellers who are in department 
stores will find it easy to connect their titles up 
with the displays in other departments, and 
those who run bookshops can find the dates at 
which the Baby Week is to be observed. 

on the Methodist mailing list, 6,000 on the 
Presbyterian, 8,000 on the Baptist. Many of 
the stores also circularized the churches, and 
women's clubs and public libraries in numer- 
ous states took up the matter. 

One bookstore in the west reported that 
Religious Book Week and his emphasis on a 
Bible sale the following week really put his 
store on the map in the town. One of the 
strictly religious bookstores reported that the 
first days of Religious Book Week were like 
Christmas shopping days. One large depart- 
ment store which printed a small selected list 
in the local papers found that it brought an 
unusual response. 

The Committee in charge were Frederic G. 
Melcher, Chairman, representing the National 
Association of Book Publishers; S. Edgar 
Briggs, of Fleming H. Revell Company ; F. M. 
Braselman, of the Presbyterian Board of Pub- 
lication; William Thomson, of Thomas Nel- 
son Sons; H. B. Hunting, of the Religious 
Bookshop of the Associated Press ; and Marion 
Humble, executive in charge. Twenty publish- 
ers of religious books contributed to cover 
a budget of $1940, the largest item of ex- 
penditure being for posters, of which 10,000 
were distributed. Fliers supplemented this, 
and 3500 circulars of suggestions for display 
and reaching the community were sent out to 

The Committee ask that any bookseller who 
has had any special experience with this week 
or any newspaper clippings showing advertis- 
ing or publicity send it to headquarters at 
334 Fifth Avenue for study and for future 

Is the Public Holding Back? 

IN one of the signed editorials which are 
such a well-known feature of the Wana- 
maker advertising Mr. Wanamaker writes, in 
the newspapers of March 4th, on "An Aval- 
anche of New Books" : 

"Books are still dear and cannot be other- 
wise until there is more pulp to make paper 
and its costs can be lowered; but the pub- 
lishers and binders might meet the desire of 
the public, which has for three years accepted 
their high rates, but is now holding back, ex- 
pecting reductions." 

This report of retarded sales differs some- 
what from the figures received from some 
of the other centers. Mrs. Hahner of Mar- 
shall Field & Co. and Mr. Henry of Carson, 
Pirie & Scott, Chicago, report January and 
February ahead of last year and a report from 
Mrs. Morris of J. L. Hudson Co., Cleveland 
gives the same statement. 

No complete canvass of department store 
conditions is available but there is quite ap- 
parently a confident feeling as to 1921 pros- 
pects in most sections. 

April 2, 1921 


First Editions 

THE present increasing attention that is 
being given to the collection of first edi- 
tions of living writers is commented on by 
the New York Times' London correspondent. 
A number of London booksellers are special- 
izing on these books, and the demand is run- 
ning very largely to the collecting of the 
poets. Rupert Brooke's "Poems," published 
only ten years ago, is now selling for six 
guineas, and the first edition of "The Ever- 
lasting Mercy" is offered at three pounds 
fifteen shillings. Masefield's "Salt Water 
Ballads" has appeared in New York priced 
at fifty dollars. Curiously enough, Bernard 
Shaw has not gained from his interest as 
much as other writers. 

That these editions are already suffering 
from the introduction of forged title pages is 
commented on by the correspondent. Joseph 
Conrad's "Chance," first issued in 1913, has 
appeared in the book market with a fraudu- 
lent title page. It is an unusual thing that a 
book of so recent a date should thus become 
the victim of this type of fraud. 

Doubleday, Page says: "Tampercrs witn 
rare editions seem to feel a peculiar attraction 
for Conrad's 'firsts.' Close upon the discovery 
that there -were two 'first' editions of 'Chance/ 
a real and a faked one, Mr. Wise, Conrad's 
bibliographer, has found that 'A Set of Six' 
has also been tampered with by some un- 
scrupulous person. There is an issue in which 
the double leaf carrying the half-title and title 
page is bogus. The double leaf is pasted upon 
the stub remaining after the original had been 
cut away and can be detected by the difference 
of ink and paper, the latter being perceptibly 
thinner and harder than the companion 

HP HE real experiences of a book buyer in 
1 endeavoring to get his needs fulfilled at 
the average bookstore is a kind of report 
that booksellers are always interested to 
get. and one of the interesting addresses at 
the recent meeting of the New York Book- 
sellers' League brought forward just that 
type of comment from Charles Lewis Hind, 
an Englishman now living in this country, 
arid well-known as an author and lecturer. 
Mr. Hind mentioned the following recent 
experiences : 

He endeavored to buy books that he need- 
ed in December and found stocks and clerks 
in such pandemonium that no one seemed to 
be able -to concentrate on his problem long 
enough to answer a reasonable question. 
Another time he went into a store in what 
proved to be a Valentine season and found 
everybody so busy selling Valentines that the 
book department went by the board. In an- 
other case he asked a clerk on the retail floor 
of a publishing house about ^ a certain book 
of theirs, and the clerk failed entirely to 
recognize a title in their own catalog. In 

Bookstore Criticism 

a Quebec bookstore he asked a clerk for 
Howell's "A Chance Acquaintance," the 
famous novel whose scenes are laid in Quebec, 
but the clerk had never heard of it. 

These, he pointed out as some of the dis- 
couragements to a book buyer. On the other 
hand, he pointed to the type of bookselling 
that he believed was increasing the sale of 
books, the store where books were sold with 
enthusiasm, the store where the buyer had a 
personal contact with someone who recog- 
nized him and gradually had a better idea of 
his special needs and interests. He believed 
also in the present tendency toward the small 
bookshop, as it gave a feeling of intimacy 
and bookishness that appealed to a wide 
range of book lovers. 


IN a communication to the French Academy 
M. Bergson describes graphomania as a dis- 
ease which manifests itself by an inordinate 
desire to write and to attach exaggerated im- 
portance to that which one writes. 

"The graphomaniac," he says, "is a man 
who is a prey to the irresistible need of writ- 
ing. It is an impulse, obsession, passion it 
matters little the word we use to describe it. 
It is the fixity of the desire to which during 
the time of the affection almost excludes all 
other endeavor. 

"In the literary form of this disease the sub- 
ject copies and reproduces every thought 
which comes to him. Probably he once pro- 
duced original work, but when he gets this dis- 
ease he cannot produce original work, yet 
nevertheless continues to write and write. The 
worse his writings get the greater grows his 
opinion of his writings. He becomes con- 
vinced that humanity demands the publication 
of his works. His dream is to fix upon him- 
self the attention of the public. His hap- 
piness is to read his name everywhere. He 
-Undertakes to persuade critics to think well of 
him when they cannot. 

"The disease may take other forms, as, 
for instance, the desire to write one's name. 
The subject writes his name everywhere he 
can put it, on books, trees, walls, benches, 
everywhere. There is also epistolary gra- 
phomania, when the subject has an irresistible 
passion to write letters, sending them to per- 
sons he scarcely knows, and even writing to 

Lectures in the Bookshop 

THE Book and Art Store of E. Weyhe, 
New York recently has been giving a 
course of lectures with open discussion on art 
subjects, arranged by the Societe Anonyme. 
The shop is an informal and attractive place 
with small tho interesting exhibits and a good 
collection of art books, both old and new. 
Such little galleries become interesting cen- 
ters for congenial people, and the books find a 
happy background in the exhibits.

Your own experience, large as it may be, 
must necessarily be limited. Literature will broaden 
it. Your impressions are so many and varied that 
it is often difficult to examine them clearly. Litera-

Advertising Children's Books 

How the Children Would Like to Have It Done 

IN the discussion of the advertising and pro- 
motion of books for children there has been 
an obvious omission in forgetting to ask 
the children themselves for comments on this 
subject. Mr. Elmer C. Adams of the Chip- 
pewa Book and Stationery Company, Chip- 
pewa Falls, has recently endeavored to get 
the children's point of view on this subject. 

He offered to a teacher of English six books 
suitable for both boys and girls which would 
be used as prizes for those who would write 
the best essay on "Advertising of Books" Every 
pupil in the South Side School entered into 
the contest, and ^Tiss Marie C. Cuddy, the 
teacher who arranged the event, has sent in a 
summary of the opinions, which are as follows : 
Ideas on Selling Children's Books 

1. Know your stock. Know what books ap- 
peal to children of various ages. Be ready to 
suggest books for a child of any age or type. 

2. Use trading stamps. 

3. Raffle. 

4. Have books on shelf. On Saturday one 
of these books will be the "lucky book." If 
a child purchases he may ask for any book. 
Should the one he calls for be the "lucky" one, 
he will get it free. 

5. In July give gifts of firecrackers with 
sales of a certain amount. 

6. In June feature books for outings Boy 
Scouts, Campfire Girls, First Aids, etc. 

7. Have a grab bag. 

8. Story hour. Let some teacher or high 
school girl tell stories small children at one 
hour. Only enough of a good story will be 
told to make it sell that book. 

9. In April feature bird, flower and garden 
books (Use Victrolas here, too.) 

10. Auction fiction books. 

11. Have a Victrola and play Riley and 
other records. Feature books by these people. 
Use posters. By consulting teachers about 
plans in school work, it would help to push 
sale on certain authors. 

12. Reading table. Arrange books and let 
children read. One half hour limit. Interest 
would be aroused and books sold. If books 
from "sets" were used, it would make better 

13. Select a very interesting part of a story 
and use it on advertising material to arouse, 

14. Use punch board and give books as 

April 2, 1921 


15. Person buying largest number of books 
in given month gets one free. 

16. Lowest cash sale day. 

17. Fish pond cardboard box with fishes 
numbered. Cast a line and hook a fish. The 
"lucky" number wins a book. Charge five 
cents a cast. 

18. In November push all books on out- 
door winter sports. 

19. Loan books to teachers and have part 
of a story read to pupils. This would create 
interest. Use "sets" for this, as "Little Colonel" 
and many books would be sold from the read- 
ing of one. 

20. Arrange with Parent-Teacher Clubs to 
have talks on "Children's Books." Get the 
parents interested in the right books for 

21. Post the list of the Wisconsin Reading 
Circle and push books on this list. 

22. Use attractive posters to call attention 
to books as "Peter Rabbit," "Little Orphan 
Annie." The posters could be made in the 

*23- Get co-operation of movies. When an 
adaptation of a book is to be shown, push sale 
of that book, as "Tarzan of the Apes" this 
would help sell all Tarzan books. 

It seems quite evident that children like to 
have something happen in the store. The fact 
that the bookshop is merely a place for book- 
stock does not appeal to them. Something 
ought to be happening, some event to catch the 
fancy of the young people. 

A bookseller would probably decide that 
there were a number of these suggestions that 
would not quite be in keeping with his usual 
business methods of selling and might not 
bring sufficient total results to justify the ef- 
fort, such suggestions as a fish pond or a 
raffle or a grab bag-, yet in the twenty-three 
suggestions there are a number of ideas that 
are sound both from the dealer's point of view 
and from the youngster's interest, and such a 
consensus of opinion is well worth the con- 
sideration of the bookseller who realizes the 
importance of this department, and a similar 
contest might bring attention to his store. 

Britannica Sales 

IN connection with the publicity on the three 
supplemental volumes of the Cambridge edi- 
tion of the Encyclopedia Britannica the pub- 
lishers make many interesting statements with 
regard to the sales that have been achieved 
on the eleventh edition. It is stated that 75,000 
sets of the Cambridge edition were sold in this 
country, and 125,000 of the photographic re- 
prints in handy form were sold thru the Sears, 
Roebuck & Company, who now own the plates 
and copyrights on both editions. These totals 
translated into money give some indication of 
the tremendous bookselling organization that 
was needed to give success to so large an 
undertaking. The publishers also state that 
over 700 editors have supplied articles for the 
new volumes, of whom 137 are American. 

" Penny 
for Your 

Of course, that's only a 
facetious colloquialism. 

But suppose you did make 
an inventory of your mind's 
contents and you were 
allowed one penny per 

How do you stand 
pauper or millionaire ? 

Ten to one, if you could 
make a respectable cerebral 
income-tax report, you read 
good books. 

Just consider how many 
worth-while thoughts you 
can accumulate from one 
good book. 

And when you consider 
that, as the sage remarked, 
"Wisdom is better than 

"Buy a Book a Week" 
is almost superfluous advice, 
isn't it ?

Illinois Booksellers Meet 

THE Executive Committee of the Illinois 
Stationers' and Booksellers' Association 
has made plans for the Sixth Annual Con- 
vention to be held in Rock Island the first week 
in May. The Committee consists of E. O. 
Vaile, Jr., President, of the Vaile Company, 
Rock Island; Fred Greenwood, Vice-President, 
of Woodworth's Bookstores, Chicago; G. A. 
Rathgeber, Secretary-treasurer, of Rathgeber 
Brothers, Murphysboro; Albert Varley of the 
High School Store, Chicago; and W. R. Es- 
sicks, of Haines & Essicks, Decatur, 111. Busi- 
ness sessions will be held morning and after- 
noon of Tuesday and Wednesday, May 3rd and 
4th ; a banquet Wednesday evening ; and 
Thursday morning, the 5th, will be reserved for 
seeing the three cities of Rock Island and 
Moline, 111. ; and Davenport, Iowa ; and the 
Rock Island Arsenal as the guests of the local 
dealers. All the stationers and booksellers 
of Iowa are to be invited to attend the con- 
vention. This plan should also attract many 
department store managers, druggists and gift 
shop dealers. There is promise of something 
valuable for every dealer in anyway connected 
with the selling of stationery and books, 
whether in the very small cities or in the larger 

The registration fee is five dollars and will 
cover all the expense of the convention. The 
co-operation of the officers of the National As- 
sociation of Stationers and Manufacturers, 
American Booksellers' Association, Greeting 
Card Association, and National Association of 
Book Publishers has been invited that the ses- 
sions may be closely correlated to the work

Custom House Decision on Books 
in Two Languages 

AN interesting case has just been brought 
up before the General Appraisers of New 
York with regard to a proper entry for cus- 
tom duty on books printed in two languages. 
P. H. Petry protested against the levying of a 
duty of 15% on certain foreign language 
'books, "French for the Traveler," etc. on the 
ground, first, that they were textbooks, an6, 
second, that they were books in foreign 

The first claim was dismissed on the grounds 
of previous decisions that decided that a text- 
book does not mean all books that can be used 
as texts, but books that are peculiarly and 
specially planned for school purposes. 

On the second issue it was ruled that three 
of the five books exhibited could come in duty 
free because there was more of the foreign 
language printed in them than the English, 
and the Russian-English and Spanish-English 

volumes were dutiable at 15% because they 
contained less of the foreign language than 
of the English printed matter. 

This would usually mean that a book printed 
with each language on an opposite page would 
have its classification settled by the introduc- 
tory matter which -would throw the balance 
of printing to either one side or the other. 

Packages To Austria 

ACTING in behalf of the Vienna office, 
senders of parcel-post packages are 
hereby requested to consider the marking of 
packages lor Austria, with the notation "if 
undeliverable, delivery to the poor," or with 
some similar notation to indicate the wishes 
of the sender, in case the return of the un- 
delivered package is not desired. 

Packages which are returned from Austria, 
as undeliverable, are subject to the payment 
of charges, made up of a sum equal to that 
originally paid for postage and the sum due 
for "a return transit charge," imposed by the 
Austrian postal administration, varying from 
40 to 55 cents, for each package, according 
to its weight. 

Supports Copyright Revision 

THE movement toward a revision of our 
Copyright Law and the elimination from 
the American statutes of the manufacturing- 
clause has received the support of the Actors' 
Equity Association, who add their influence to 
the work of the Authors' League in asking 
the American Federation of Labor to with- 
draw its objections to such legislation. Many 
of the Union men have turned very strongly 
toward an approval of this change, and some 
members have expressed their wish to be gov- 
erned by the action of the Equity Association 
on this matter. 

Unharvested Fields of Romance 

IN an article on "Unharvested Fields of Ro- 
mance" in the March ipth Independent, 
Preston Slosson says : "By this time there is 
probably no country too distant in place and 
no age too distant in time to have been hon- 
ored by an occasional historical novel. But 
for all that the general current of popular fic- 
tion tends to seek well-worn channels. This 
is probably because the novelist is in a hurry 
and finds it more convenient to use a ready- 
made pattern than to think out an original 
one. . . . 

"Science ihas many uses, and not the least 
of them is supplying wings to the creative im- 
agination. But of what avail are the wings 
if the author does not try them on? Anyone 
who knows how to write a good story and 
can understand a scientific paper has only 
himself to blame if he is ever at a loss for 
a plot. It is solely due to the laziness or 
ignorance of romancers that most novels have 
nothing 'novel' about them but the name."

Canvasser: May I have a few moments of 

your time? 

Prospect: Yes, if you will be brief. What 

can I do for you ; I'm a man of few words. 
Canvasser: Just the man I'm looking for. 

My specialty is dictionaries. 

In Brinsley MacNamara's latest novel, "In 
Clay and in Bronze" (Brentano), Martin 
Duignan's father has two vices. He period- 
ically gets drunk and when in his cups he al- 
ways indulges in an orgy of book buying. If 
all readers were like that the publishers would 
do well to change their well known slogan to 
"Buy a bottle a week." 

Edward Anthony in New York Herald. 

"Our readers may be interested in hearing 
that we have begun upon our life work, a su- 
preme opus, with excerpts and footnotes," 
writes Keith Preston in the Chicago Daily 
News. "The work will be entitled as follows : 


"The work will begin with Dreiser wor- 
ship, Cabell cultus, the censor, and how he put 
the martyr's crown on both. Other martyrs 
will be added as they are made and officially 
recognized by Mr. Mencken at Baltimore." 


We enter now a complicated phase, 

Hard to hit off in any single phrase. 

I want a word connoting evolution ; 

Sound reform, industrial revolution; 

A higher birthrate and a lower rent; 

New Worlds for Old ; Research Magnificent. 

Such words are hard to find, yet there is one 

I almost blush to use it WELLSIAN. 

From "Wells' Springs of History" in The 

Literary Review. 


Antipathy against printing and everything 
else connected with it seems to be engrained 
in the Russian official mind whether in Tzar 
Nicholas' or Tzar Lenin's day. A good story 
illustrative of this went the rounds in War- 
saw some few years ago. A high official at 
Vilna, who had much to do with the press, and 
had the native dislike of it, was asked by a 
subordinate, who was going abroad on leave of 
absence, whether he could execute any com- 
missions for his chief. Yes if he was pass- 
ing thru Frankfurt. The reply being in the 
affirmative, the chief made an expressive 
grimace of hatred. "Then," quoth he, "pray 
be so kind as to look up there the monument 
to Gutenberg and split* in his face!"

The Publishers' Circular. 

War Books Still in Demand 

THE following editorial recently appeared in 
the New York Times. 

"Further discussion seems to be deserved by 
the often-heard statements to the effect that 
people are tired of reading about the war and 
that the author with a manuscript on that 
subject, whether history or fiction, will be told 
by every publisher to whom he offers it that 
there is no longer a demand, and therefore no 
longer a market, for literary wares of that 

"As already suggested in this column, the as- 
sumption that a general war weariness exists 
among readers is a false one. The reception 
which not a few recent war books have re- 
ceived from the buying public shows that this 
is not true, and the impression that it is comes 
in great part as the result of a disguised pro- 
paganda directed against the publishers by those 
whose interest it is that talk about the war 
should cease. All pacifists, all Germans and 
pro-Germans, and all foes of one or more of 
the nations that conquered Germany are they 
who really are tired of war books and war 
stories in the magazines, for all such books 
an4 stories are arraignments of these folk, and 
by them, with good reason, are disliked. 

"But there is something more to the situation 
than this, and there has been a real change in 
the reading public's demand. While the war 
was on, so eager was the desire to hear about it, 
especially in detail from active participants, 
that all they wrote had a ready sale and prompt 
publication. The result was that much of what 
appeared in print was of poor literary quality 
the crudely written narratives of men who had 
seen or done much, but were unable to tell 
well what they had seen and done. At present 
only the work of really able writers is -wanted, 
but that work is wanted, just as much as ever. 

"Evidently some publishers and editors do 
not like to say that when war manuscripts 
are offered, especially by ex-soldiers, and what 
they do say, when the literary merit lacks, is 
that readers are tired of war. Doing this is a 
mistaken kindness an evasion of plain duty, 
sparing one set of feelings only more grievously 
to hurt another." 

Mail for Shanghai 

IT is reported that there is no city directory 
issued in Shanghai, China, and that the 
Chinese employed as clerks and carriers in 
the United States Postal Agency can not be 
required to remember names of individuals* 
firms, or corporations, and in consequence- 
pieces of mail matter not bearing local street 
or other addresses, received from the United 
States, become un deliverable as a eeneral rule. 
Senders of mail to Shanghai should be re- 
quested to address all mail fully, intended for 
delivery thru the United States agency at thatt 
place, and thus aid native carriers to make 
proper delivery. 


The Publishers' Weekly 

New Edition of "Bookshelf for 
Boys and Girls'* Under Way 

NINETY thousand copies of the second 
edition of the Bookshelf for Boys and 
Girls were used. Booksellers and librarians 
ordered the list in quantities varying all the 
way from one copy for ordering stock and 
reference use to ten thousand copies for dis- 
tribution from one store. Good Housekeeping 
in December, 1920, printed an article on "The 
Joy of the Story" by Montrose J. Moses, offer- 
ing to send a selected booklist to readers who 
would apply. The Bookshelf for Boys and 
Girls was the list used by the magazine, 
checked by Mr. Moses, to send to definite re- 
quests from interested readers. 

The list has been found invaluable in con- 
nection with Children's Book Week. Parents 
and teachers know that they can trust the 
list because of its high standard of selection. 
The bookseller's needs are very carefully 
considered' in the making of each edition. 
Children's Book Week will be held this year 
November 14-20. Plans now under way in- 
clude a more thoro enlistment of the women's 
clubs, and a direct appeal to the schools, which 
have not been reached adequately by the Week 
in former years. 

One bookseller wrote last year: "We found 
the Book Shelf for Boys and Girls of great 
value when used in conjunction with our in- 
vitation to parents and the kiddies to attend 
our display, reading hours, and juvenile plays 
during Children's Week. We consider it the 
very best medium for direct advertising avail- 
able." One state superintendent of schools 
wrote for copies of the list, "to put into the 
hands of teachers who are to determine our 
reading matter _for the coming year." 

The third edition of the Bookshelf will be 
in the hands of the editors whose work and 
names made the list so successful in 1921 : 
Clara W. Hunt, superintendent of the Chil- 
dren's department, Brooklyn Public Library ; 
Ruth G. Hopkins, children's librarian, Bridge- 
port Public Library; Franklin K. Mathiews, 
chief librarian, Boy Scouts of America. The 
list will be even more attractive in appearance 
than former editions. Maurice Day is at work 
on a cover design. A score of booksellers 
have been asked to check the titles on the list 
that they probably will not re-order, so that 
the list may be made as practical as possible. 

Books Never on the Shelves 

BOOKLISTS from varying points of view 
always get good attention in the public 
press, and the Syracuse Post-Standard carries 
editorial entitled "Books Never on the 
Shelves." This editorial is based on a report 
from Paul M. Paine, the librarian of Syra- 
cuse, stating that on the fist of a dozen books 
which he had submitted there are always 
reservations filed a month ahead at the li- 

Such a list very naturally serves as an 

impetus to the bookseller, as it points out 
that on the books most discussed the public 
library cannot begin to fill the whole city's 
demands within the compass of any likely 

Ten of the sixteen books listed are non-fic- 
tion. One of the volumes of fiction has been 
out over a year. One of the non-fiction books 
is published by its author, and two are 
books on self-improvement that have been 
largely promoted by magazine page space. 
The list is as'follows : 

A. J. Beveridge "Life of John Marshall." 
"The Americanization of Edward Bok." 
Philip Gibbs "Now It Can Be Told." 
Margot Asquith's Autobiography. 
H. G. Wells "Outline of History." 
Sinclair Lewis "Main Street." 
Edith Wharton -"The Age of Innocence." 
Alexander Black "The Great Desire." 
Rose Macaulay "Potterism." 
The "Tarzan" stories. 
Ethel M. Dell "Top of the World." 
Frank Channing Haddock "Power of 

Blackford "Analyzing Character." 
Upton Sinclair "The Brass Check" 
Frederick O'Brien "White Shadows in the 
South Seas." 

Harry A. Franck "Roaming Through the 
West Indies." 

Germany Solicits Printing 

AMERICAN publishers have recently re- 
ceived circular letters from a B'erlin 
printer and book-maker, which are of interest 
as showing that Germany considers that costs 
are now on such a footing that she can favor- 
ably solicit business, even as far away as New 
York. To quote the letter: 

"We are able to print books for you at a moderate 
price, the costs for printing and binding, as well as 
for paper, being, as you know, comparatively low in 
Germany. Being ourselves publishers, we may find 
out the best and, for your purpose, the most ad- 
vantageous printers, book-binders, etc. We can also 
get the allowance of export. 

"If you are interested in having your books printed 
here, please send samples of your publications and 
give information about the necessary details, that we 
may make our calculations and tell you our terms." 

Canadian Book-trade Organization 

A PRELIMINARY meeting looking toward 
organization was held in Toronto March 
22 by a group of Canadian retail booksellers. 
Many dealers from out of town attended the 
Convention, and others have written promising 
support. On March 25, the Booksellers' and 
Stationers' Association of Canada was organ- 
ized in Toronto. The following officers were 
elected: President, C L. Nelles, Guelph ; First 
Vice-president, A. H. Jarvis, Ottawa; Secre- 
tary-Treasurer, F. I. Weaver, Toronto. A 
member of the Executive Committee for each 
province will be elected later, the elections be- 
ing carried on by mail. These officers will 
hold office until the general convention in 
Toronto in August, at the time of the Cana- 
dian Industrial Exposition.

Women and Bookselling 

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

MANY of the American book-shops have 
made poetry a special subject for their 
clientele, but Mrs. Terence B. Holliday, 
of the Holliday Book-shop, 10 West Forty- 
seventh Street, presents to the public the work 
of the Irish poet, William Butler Yeats, in 
an especially attractive form. These poems, 
mostly the shorter ones, are printed on deco- 
rated cardboard, and hand-colored by Jack B. 
Yeats, a brother of the poet. Beside the text, 
there are often scenes of Ireland depicted in 
delicate coloring, with Irish folk in quaint cos- 
tumes. These cards make a decided addition 
to the collection of wall cards. The Hollidays 
import them from the Cuala Press, Dundrum 
Co., Dublin, Ireland. 

The regular meeting of the Women's Na- 
tional Book Association will be held on Thurs- 
day evening, April 21, at the Children's Book- 
shop, 5 West Forty-seventh Street. This 
promises to be an exceptionally interesting 
meeting. One of the speakers will talk on 
the important subject, "How a Woman Can 
Finance Her Own Business." This speaker, 
Mrs. Estelle Guillenont, of the Woman's Se- 
urity Corporation, will undoubtedly throw light 
on the subject which has kept many women 
from opening their own book-shops, who 
have, either thru fear or from the lack of 
proper knowledge regarding financial proced- 
ure, not dared to turn their book knowledge 
to their own advantage and embark on the open 
seas of bookselling. There will be other 
speakers on the program, and their names will 
be announced later. The members of the As- 
sociation will dine, as usual, at the Dew Drop 
Inn, which is at 7 West Forty-seventh Street, 
at 6 P. M. 

At the Little Book Store, 51 East Sixtieth 
Street, the owners, Mesdames Klots, Sachs 
and Robbins, Jr., are aiming to sell "good 
judgment" along with their books. Realizing 
that tfie class of people they desire to reach 
wish to buy books on which they may depend, 
both for entertainment and instruction, these 
women have selected their stock with the ut- 
most care, not making selections from the lists 
of "best sellers" of today, but rather from 
those of yesterday which were popular from 
five to twenty-five years back, and which have 
stood the acid test of time and are still on the 
active lists of the publishers. They apply this 
method to all classes of literature, but. to 
children's books in particular. This does not 
mean that they are running an antiquarian 
bookshop, for the newest titles which the pub- 
lishers offer just off their presses are to be 
found. Books of the romantic type have made 
up a large part of their stock and volumes of 
modern poetry, and fiction for youngsters from 
fourteen to eighteen years, that difficult age 

which has been the despair of most book- 
sellers, have received particular notice. The 
selections are made up of books other than 
those loathsome "sweet" stories, with which 
young people have been bombarded within the 
last few years. Mrs. Sachs was at one time 
connected with the New York Times Book 

Women in all branches of literary work are 
rallying to the colors of the Women's National 
Book Association. Editors, librarians, book- 
binders, publishers, in fact almost every part 
of the literary profession is represented. A 
new member, Miss Laura Wilck, a broker in 
manuscripts, of 31 Broadway, New York, 
brings into the Association another phase of 
literary work. 

All those who look forward to attending the 
convention of the American Booksellers' As- 
sociation, which is to be held at Atlantic City, 
are particularly interested in the costume dance 
on the evening of May loth. There have been 
lively discussions going on as to who will be 
who out of the story books that night, and 
gossip has it that among those attending will 
be Mrs. Maggie Jiggs, from "Bringing Up 
Father," and Mary Queen of Scots, from John 
Drinkwater's "Mary Stuart," together with a 
miscellaneous collection of "Mysterious 

An interesting effort in constructive selling 
has been developed by Dorothy E. Collins, 
director of the Beacon Press Bookshop in 
Boston. The Unitarian Church, of which that 
Press is the publishing office, has been giving 
enlarged attention to the men's church ore^ni- 
zations and has been establishing many 
chapters of what is called "the Layman's 
League" in various churches. The Bookshop 
has prepared an interesting four-page leaflet 
in an effort to sell group libraries to those 

The front cover of the catalog gives a pic- 
ture of a club room with the men seated for an 
informal hour of good fellowship. On the 
mantelpiece is a row of books. In the catalog 
are lists of group libraries. A "One Foot 
Bookshelf," containing ten books, is offered for 
fifteen dollars, carriage free. A second and 
third selection of similar extent are priced at 
the same figure, so that a club can invest 
at the start in either ten, twenty, or thirty 
volumes. A still larg-er selection is priced 
at twenty-five dollars. These lists do not in- 
clude merely denominational volumes, but a 
broad selection of religious literature from 
various publishers. A blank for ordering is

Obituary Notes 

JOHN BURROUGHS, the famous philosopher- 
naturalist, died March 29 on a New York Cen- 
tral train on his way to his home in West Park, 
N. Y., to celebrate his eighty-fourth birthday 
which would have occurred on April 3. He 
was born on a farm in Roxbury, N. Y., in 
1837, coming, as he said from "an uncultivated 
and unreading class." As a boy he had been in- 
terested in nature, but it was not until, during 
his years of country school teaching, that one 
of Audubon's books influenced him to 'become 
a trained observer. Mr. Burroughs began to 
write while he held a treasury clerk position in 
Washington. After acting as bank examiner 
from 1873-1884, he retired to "Riverby," his 
country home on the Hudson and devoted him- 
self to observation and writing. Among his 
books are : "Notes on Walt Whitman as Poet 
and Person," 1867; "Wake Robin," 1871; "Win- 
ter Sunshine," 1875; "Birds and Poets," 1877; 
"Locusts and Wild Honey," 1879; "Pepacton," 
1881; "French Fields," 1884; "Signs and Sea- 
sons," 1886; "Indoor Studies," 1889; "River- 
by," 1894; "Whitman, A Study," 1896; "The 
Light of Day," 1900; "Squirrels and Other bur 
Bearers," 1900; "Literary Values," 1904; 
"Camping and Tramping With Roosevelt," 
1907; "Leaf and Tendril," 1908; "Time and 
Change," 1912; "The 'Summit of the Years," 
1913; "The Breath of Life," 1915; "Under the 
Apple Trees," 1916; "Field and Study," 1919; 
and "Accepting the Universe," 1920. 

novelist and dramatic author, died at his home 
in London, March 28. He was born in Syd- 
ney, Australia, on April 22, 1860. After com- 
pleting his education in Australia, he entered 
the civil service of the Government of New 
South Wales, later going to England. Years 
of unprosperous labor at journalism and fic- 
tion preceded his first dramatic effort. Among 
his best known works were "Captain Swift," 
"The Old Lady," "The Impossible Woman," 
an-d "The Tyranny of Tears." 

ELEANOR MARIE INGRHAM, author of sev- 
eral works, died suddenly at the residence of 
her parents in New York, on March 22. She 
wrote "The Flying Mercury," "The Game and 

the Candle," "Stanton Wins," "From the Car 
,Behind," "Man's Heath," and "Unafraid." She 
was born in 1886.

The Trade List Annual 1921 

To Publishers: 

In order to allow all publishers ample time in which to prepare their catalogs 
for insertion in the Trade List Annual 1921 (to be issued August 31st) we are 
now mailing to contributors the customary instructions and, shipping directions. 
Publishers whose lists did not appear in the Annual for 1920 are especially urged 
in the interest of the booksellers and librarians to have them ready in time for 
this year's Annual. 

We remind publishers of smaller lists, not hitherto represented in the 
Annual, that this publication is of even more proportional importance to them 
than to the large publishers who are always represented, since retail booksellers 
are less likely to have knowledge of their books when a customer makes inqui- 
ries. Publishers who have but a few books, or who issue no catalog, can have 
their list printed by us at small cost. Write us for terms.

Rare Books, Autographs and Prints 

SEVENTY-TWO mezzotint engravings by 
S. Arlent Edwards at tRe recent Trow- 
bridge Hall sale at the American Art Gal- 
leries brought $5,662.50. 

Books and prints, mainly the work of 
Hiroshige, the master of Japanese landscape 
art, with rare reference books on Japanese art 
in English and Japanese, the property of Jud- 
son D. Metzger, of Moline, 111., will be sold 
at the Walpole Galleries, April 4 and 5. 

A collection of Americana, including early 
American almanacs, broadsides, books and 
pamphlets concerning the French and Indian 
War, the American Revolution, the North 
American Indians, the early West and the Civil 
War, will be sold by the Heartman Auction 
Company, Inc., April 4, at Rutland, Vt. 

Last November the Charles Dickens St. 
Dunstan Home for Blinded and Crippled Sol- 
diers, bought by the Dickens Fellowship which 
raised i 13,500 for this purpose, was opened in 
London. The splendid work which has been 
done during the winter and will now continue 
to be done would gladden the heart of Dickens 
could he but Know it. No memorial is more 
in keeping with the spirit of the great novelist. 

The bibliographical library of M. T. 
O'Shaughnessy with an English library con- 
sisting of illuminated manuscripts, incunabula, 
early English literature, standard editions of 
modern authors and cjioice books in fine bind- 
ings will be sold at the Anderson Galleries, 
April 4 and 5. In addition to many useful 
works of reference and books of interest to the 
(better class of private buyers, there is a 
sprinkling of rarities generally in fine condi- 
tion that will be of interest to discriminating 

Among accessions to the Newberry Library 
of Chicago, for the John M. Wing Foundation 
is a perfect and extremely well preserved 
block book, Apocalypsis S. Johannis (Nether- 
lands, circa 1455). It consists of forty-eight 
leaves printed on one side only, and the cuts 
afterwards colored by hand. This copy bears 
the armorial bookplate of Charles Barclay and 
will henceforth be one of -the foundation stones 
of this typographical collection. Only a very 
few copies of the block books are owned in 
the United States either by private collectors 
or by institutions. 

Alfred Fowler, of Kansas City, Mo., has 
just published a selection of wood engravings 
by J. J. Lankes, with an appreciation by Bol- 
ton Brown, in which he says, "Mr. Lankes's 
beautiful engravinp- is not the sort that is often 
done or can be done. Only very rarely has 
anyone the genuine Bewickian gift; the joy in 
the technique of white-line wood engraving 
combined with the intelligence to adapt na- 

ture thereto." The collection comprises six 
wood engravings; the text in large type; the 
whole carefully printed and bound in blue 

The library of the late James Hammond 
Trumbull, bibliographer of Connecticut, other 
than that portion left to institutions, was sold 
at the American Art Galleries, March 22 and 
23. The library consisted almost entirely of 
Americana with much relating to Connecticut; 
a great deal was ordinary but there were a 
few rarities of interest. The very rare 
"original edition of the trial of Joseph Smith 
and other Mormons for treason, published in 
Fayetteville, Mo., 1841, including the Proceed- 
ings of the Missouri Legislature, letters from 
prominent Mormons, etc., brought $400 ; an 
Almanac for 1700 published by William Brad- 
ford and said to be the only perfect copy 
known, $500; John Wise's "A Word of Com- 
fort to a Melancholy Country," etc., 1721, a 
plea for paper money and inflation, $115; 
Thomas Walter's "The Grounds and Rules of 
Music Explained," Boston, 1723, $95; Ephriam 
Huit's "The Anatomy of Conscience," London, 
1626, $90; and Benjamin Woodbridge's "Justi- 
fication of Faith," London, 1653, $55. The en- 
tire collection of 1,133 lots brought $14,991. 

Since the new library building for the 
Library of Congress was erected and under 
the able administration of Herbert Putnam, 
great additions are constantly being ,made to 
the valuable historical papers now preserved 
in the Division of Manuscripts. Among the 
most recent acquisitions have been an import- 
ant collection of the papers of President 
Roosevelt; a large collection of the papers of 
President Taft, including copies of letters 
sent, originals of letters received, reports on 
special subjects like the Philippines, the Pan- 
ama Canal, photographs of persons and places, 
newspaper cartoons, both prints and originals, 
and other similar material. The Grover Cleve- 
land papers have been added to recently by 
the purchase of thirty letters by President 
Cleveland to Captain Robley D. Evans. The 
library also secured important Washington 
and Franklin papers last year, the Washington 
papers relating to his western lands granted 
as bounty for participation in the French and 
Indian War, and the Franklin papers being 
the series of letters to Miss Polly Stevenson 
which were sold by Henkels, in Philadelphia, 
last season. 

The Americana in the library of William 
Loring Andrews, purchased by James F. 
Drake a little over a year ago, will be sold 
at the Anderson Galleries, April 18 and 19. 
The catalog contains 441 lots, consisting of 
rare prints, extra-illustrated books and rare 
Americana of all periods of American history. 
It does not have the appearance of the usual 
collection of Americana for thruout every- 

April 2, 1921 


thing is in the finest possible condition and 
it is as generally attractive as the books are 
rare. Mr. Andrews had an affection for 
everything pertaining to the history of his 
native city and consequently there is a wealth 
of New York material. Probably the most 
valuable lot in the sale is the famous Bradford 
Map, printed by William Bradford in 1731, 
'the finest of the three known copies and the 
only one in private hands. It is the earliest, 
rarest and most interesting map of the city 
known and was regarded by Mr. Andrews as 
the most important item in his collection. 
Another lot which Mr. Andrews regarded 
very highly was his copy of Jo'hn W. Francis's 
"Old New York," extended to four volumes 
by the insertion of 522 portraits, scenes, water 
colors, drawings, autograph letters, etc., with 
four special designed title-pages by Hosier, 
bound in full blue levant Morocco by Matthews. 
The work is replete with rare prints and most 
interesting and out-of-the-way material. Not- 
withstanding the profusion of illustration, one 
is still impressed with the fine restraint used 
by the extra-illustrator, for at every point one 
meets only the finest in illustration. Other 
lots characterized by the same fine taste in- 
clude William A. Duer's "New York as it Was 
During the Latter Part of the Last Century," 
1865, and "Reminiscences of an Old New 
Yorker," 1867, by the same author; Morgan 
Dix's Historical Recollections of St. Paul's 
Chapel, New York; Edward Everett's "Life 
of Washington," 1860; Pierre M. Irving's 
"Life and Letters of ^Vashington Irving," 
large paper edition, 1862-64; Washington 
Irving's "History of New York," 1824, and 
"Sketch Book," 1865; Martha J. Lamb's "His- 
tory of New York," 1877. These works are 
extra-illustrated with the same discriminating 
taste and skill with the effective use of por- 
traits, maps, views, scenes, original water 
colors and drawings and autograph letters. 
The arranging and inlaying 'has been done by 
experts and the bindings are by the best 
American and English binders. The rarest of 
the prints is a "View of Castle William by 
Boston in New England," engraved in 1724, 
probably by Thomas Johnston, discovered by 
Mr. Andrews about thirty years ago and is 
still unique. ^Among an extraordinary group 
of early American almanacs are two of Frank- 
lin's Poor Richard's, of 1752 and 1753, both 
superb copies. A small collection of book- 
plates includes the bookplates of David Greene 
engraved by Paul Revere. Other rare items 
of great interest include Christopher Colles's 
"A Survey of the Roads of the United States 
of America," 1789, exceedingly rare and the 
finest copy known ; Patrick McRobert's "Tour 
Through Part of the North Provinces of 
America," etc., one of two known copies and 
the first to be sold at auction ; the third '"New 
York Directory," 1789, said to be rarer than 
the first; and "the manuscript of the General 
Order Book of General Washington, from 
May 28, 1780, to August 2, 1780, issued from 
Headquarters, at Morristown, Ramapo, etc., 
written on 90 leaves at one of the most crit- 

ical periods in the Revolutionary War. There 
is so much of extraordinary merit that it is 
impossible to do justice to this collection in 
brief space. The collection must be seen to be 
properly understood and appreciated, for no 
collector has ever shown finer taste, better 
judgment, or a keener appreciation of the rare 
and unique, inside the limitations of his field, 
than Mr. Andrews has done.

If one who had lived in the days of camel-bells 
could return, this might be the tale he would 
unfold. It is startlingly real dead cities live 
again in all the mad, barbaric splendor of the past- 
like a purple veil of witchery the languorous atmos- 
phere of the East descends and we are thrilled 
observers of a heart-moving romance, set against the background 
of the world's greatest tragedy, and the mighty dawn of uncon- 
querable faith. It will be numbered among the great literary 
productions of the year. It will be admired for the thrilling 
tale, discussed for the manner of the telling, and cherished 
for th<e inspiration and faith it will give.

In the flood tide of publishing it is difficult, if not impossible, for salesmen

booksellers. Let your store be one that does business twelve 
months a year.

Notable American Fiction 

THE BRIMMING CUP By Dorothy Canfield 

Author of "The Bent Twig" 

The story of an American woman who goes deep into her own heart to find 
out if a really honest love can survive. "Dorothy Canfield has done fine work 
before, but now she has become a force welding the culture and grace of the 
older fiction with the fearless honesty of the new. 'The Brimming Cup' is a big- 
ger, finer, a more searchingly honest, a more penetrating novel than 'The Bent 
Twig' ever promised that she could write." Boston Transcript. Net, $2.00.

first novel. 


STAR DUST By Fannie Hurst 

A first novel by this celebrated writer. Not a col- 
lection of short stories. Critics hail this novel as 
"highly successful" and as possessing "the qualities 
of sentiment, great city adventure and substantial 
idealism which should keep it for a long time among 
books of high demand." 

Everybody knows a Lilly Becker she's universal 
this heroine of Star Dust who sees her own tre- 
mendous ambitions finally realized in her daughter. 
As great a mother, in a different way, as Fannie 
Hurst created in her famous film "Humoresque." 
Published by HARPER & BROTHERS. 


By Eleanor H. Porter 

Just before her death, Mrs. Porter declared 
SISTER SUE to be the best novel she had ever writ- 
ten. It's the story of a girl who gave up her musical 
career for the sake of her family, and who found that 
in helping others she had helped herself to find 
romance and happiness. 

SISTER SUE is written with same optimism and 
inspiration that made "Pollyanna," "Just David" and 
"Mary Marie" so popular, but it has more of a story 
than any of these, and will be more keenly enjoyed by 
the average novel reader. $2.00.

Important English Novelists 

THE LOST GIRL By D. H. Lawrence 

PREVENT THEM is the theme of this fascinating novel, 
which has been welcomed with extraordinary enthusiasm 
by the leading American critics in the leading American 
journals. The subject is one which interests us all, and 
the novel is written in the best style of D. H. Lawrence 
whose unique genius is now universally recognized. 

John Mary, in the New York Evemng Post, says : "Mr. 
Lawrence is of the elder stature of Meredith and Hardy 
.... I can think of no other young novelist who is quite 
worthy of the company." $2.00. 
Published by THOMAS SELTZER, INC. , 


MAN'S OLD AGE By William De Morgan 

This is Mr. De Morgan's last book. You probably have 
sold a good many copies of it already, but have you told 
your customers that all our critics are rating De Morgan 
with Dickens and Thackeray? This book is largely auto- 
biographical, and as one review said: "Surely De Morgan, 
himself, despite his wise, sweet maturity, exemplifies The 

Old Man's Youth." De Morgan will be known for many 

years to come, and The Old Man's Youth is one of the few books that we can con- 
scientiously urge booksellers to read. $2.00. 
Published by HENRY HOLT & COMPANY. 

THE MOUNTEBANK By William J. Locke 

Another Beloved Vagabond is this new hero, a 
mountebank, playing in the circuses and playhouses of 
France, then a private in the Great War rising by steady 
promotion to become Brigadier-General with all the pres- 
tige entailed, only to return to mountebankery and uncer- 
tainty about life's values. The same philosopher as the 
Henri of old, the same easy flow of words, Locke has 
returned to his early manner and we rejoice in it. 
Cloth, $2.00. 

Published by JOHN LANE COMPANY. 

THE HALL AND THE GRANGE By Archibald Marshall 

Author of Eldest Son," "The Honour of the Clintons?' etc. 
Following the traditions of the best English fiction from 
Fielding, through Jane Austen, down, "The Hall and the Grange" 
is not only a story but a delineation of real flesh and blood peo- 
ple that will live. The characters are as human as people known 
intimately. They are interesting and amusing, and, while they 
are likeable, the author does not fail to show their little foibles as 
well as their underlying good qualities. "The Hall and the 
Grange" is a story of English country life of today, written in 
the quiet, easy manner of which Mr. Marshall is a master, and 
which he has never displayed to better advantage. $2.00.

Love Stories in Various Settings 


Author of "The Story of a Neiv Zealand River" 

Into the rough element of a mill community in New Zealand steps Miss 
Sidney Carey, a young school teacher, fresh from the refinements and conven- 
tionalities of her native city, Auckland. An unconventional life is this bush-life, 
and therefore this book differs from the average novel; but so charged is the 
atmosphere with human kindness, with selfless devotion with the true com- 
munity spirit, that one readily forgives all social lapses, and acknowledges the 
inevitability of the occurrences. It is a well-told story of real people. 
Cloth, $2.00. 
Published by JOHN LANE COMPANY. 

FLOOD TIDE By Sara Ware Bassett 

The lure of Cape Cod is strong for Miss Bassett, and 
for the setting of this new novel she has returned to the 
little seaside town of Wilton, wherein lies the Harbor Road 
and where dwell Zenas Henry and the captains three, those 
well-known and well-liked characters of her earlier books. 
The Boston Herald says : " 'Flood Tide' is the best work 
that Miss Bassett has done. It is a wholesome, old- 
fashioned love story, and its .wholly human characters are 
handled with a very sympathetic touch. The action never 
drags and the pages radiate the atmosphere of Cape Cod."

THE GRINDING By Clara Goodyear Bush 

Thiis is a love story dealing with Louisiana life. The 
author is a southerner herself, lives in New Orleans, and 
her descriptions and characterizations are very thorough and 
clear. You can recommend this book to all those who like to 
read of that quaint charm and romance which we all associ- 
ate with the South. The heroine, Catherine Maine, is a 
true aristocrat of plantation times, and there is much humor 
in the descriptions of the southern darkies. $2.00. 

Published by HENRY HOLT & COMPANY. 


You can confidently recommend this international 
romance of four countries to all readers in search of an 
"out of the ordinary" novel. The New York Herald says : 
"Here is plot from the first page to the last by an author 
who knows how to keep the strings of her story in her own 
hands." The New York Tribune says : "The fascination of 
Kate Jordan's earlier novel 'Against the Winds' is recalled 
by 'The Next Corner.' There is the same strength of 
emotional appeal, the same vivid characterization and the 
same variety of intensely dramatic situations." $2.00 net.

American Women Novelists 



THE TRYST By Grace Livingston Hill 

Mrs. Hill's novels have been best sellers for fourteen 
years. She tells a rattling good romance and nothing un- 
savory ever creeps into her stories. This is the strongest 
and longest piece of work from her pen. It tells of John 
Treeves, how in seeking after God he finds Patty Merrill, 
and helps to clear the mystery that surrounds her life as 
well as the mystery of a death. Frontispiece. $2.00. 


OUT OF THE AIR By Inez Haynes Irwin 

Author of the "Phoebe and Ernest" Books 

A new psychic plot laid in gruesome haunted surroundings x adds novelty 
and individuality to Mrs. Irwin's first mystery story. It is difficult to decide 
who is the heroine, the lovely, sad, dead woman who haunts it, or the beautiful, 
gay, modern young girl who is the heart of it. Net, $2.00. 


MY SON By Corra Harris 

This is the story of the son of A CIRCUIT 
RIDER'S WIFE, the story which established Mrs. 
Harris's reputation once and for all. MY SON is a 
very human story, touched off by keen insight and 
humor and told by a remarkably well drawn character, 
the mother of a young minister. Mrs. Harris is so 
intimately in touch with the life and people of which 

she writes that her work bears in an unusual degree the stamp of actual 

happening. Net, $1.90. 



By Ethel M. Kelley 

BEAUTY AND MARY BLAIR is a penetrating 
study of the girl of to-day in the form of a very 
delightful story. A good many Mrs. Grundys have 
been holding up their hand in horror over the ac- 
tions of the younger generation, but Miss Kelley, 
instead of getting excited over their faults and fail- 
ings, calmly puts a typical specimen under the 
microscope for the reader to see. The Dial calls it : 
"a novel full of secret beauty and an extraordinary 
instance of the possibility of writing a profound study 
of adolescence without forsaking for a moment the

Decidedly Unusual Fiction 

CLERAMBAULT By Romain Rolland 

This new book comes to us out of the war after 
five terrible years during which the author suffered 
much for the sake of his principles. In spite of the 
author's denial no sympathetic reader can help seeing 
Rolland, himself the idealist, battling heroically against 
the most overpowering forces of reality. In men- 
tioning this book, do not forget the popularity of 
Holland's "Jean-Christophe," which has gone into 
sixteen printings. $2.00. 

Published by HENRY HOLT & COMPANY. 




This novel has created a furore. It is likely to be the 
most talked-about novel of the season. Sinclair Lewis, 
author of "Main Street" says: "Salute to Evelyn Scott! 
THE NARROW HOUSE establishes her vision and her 
workmanship. She belongs, she understands, she is 
definitely an artist. THE NARRO\V HOUSE is an event; 
it is one of those recognitions of life by which life itself 
becomes the greater." Third edition. $2.00.

THE SEVENTH ANGEL By Alexander Black 

Should a giil reveal to her dearest woman friend the 
fact of a past mistake? This is the question which Alex- 
ander Black, author of "The Great Desire" asks in. his 
new novel. He works out this theme against a back- 
ground of the feverish activities of New York. He re- 
flects wonderfully the shifting ideas of our time, the 
after-thewar chaos in which we are all drifting. A 
novel that will appeal to the "seasoned" reader and occa- 
sional browser alike. $2.00. 
Published by HARPER & BROTHERS. 

JAKE By Eunice Tietjens 

This is one of the finest novels ever written. A sweet- 
tempered woman, Ruth, tells the story of her friend Jake, 
a newspaper artist, who is torn between his devotion to his 
selfish mother and his love for his second-rate wife, who are 
fiendishly jealous of each other and who gradually destroy 
him. It is beautifully written a true masterpiece that 
Hawthorne or O. Henry or Balzac might have written. 
You will make no mistake in recommending this book 
warmly. $2.00.

Lovers of American wild life "have discovered in Hal 
G. Evarts a writer of animal stories that vividly recall Jack 
London's "The Call of the Wild." Mr. Evarts is one of the 
few living authors who can successfully dramatize the life 
of the animal without departing from the truth, and his 
recent story "Old Timer" in The Saturday Evening Post has 
attracted nation-wide attention. In "The Yellow Horde" 
Evarts makes the adventure of the coyote so vivid and en- 
grossing that the reader closes the book with the feeling 
rthat he has been transported back to the great open spaces 
and understands the free, wild life of the hunted. $1.75 net.

MEET MR. STEGG By Kennett Harris 

The author is widely known as a writer for many popu- 
lar periodicals, particularly as a contributor to the Saturday 
Evening Post. "Meet Mr. Stegg" is Mr. Harris' first book. 
It is a collection of his best short stories woven into a 
consecutive whole around the engaging and picturesque 
character of Mr. Stegg, the old bullwhacker of Elder Sta- 
tion. It is a colorful and highly amusing narrative. To 
know this book is to know Mr. Stegg, and to know Mr. 
Stegg is to know the West, its romance, its philosophy and 
its thrills. Some reviewers have compared Mr. Harris' 

quaint turn of style with that of Bret Harte and Artemus Ward. $1.90.

By Prominent Writers 

GUNSIGHT PASS By William MacLeod Raine 

An old time cattle man wrote in the other day 
"Raine is the best Western writer since Bret Harte. 
He gets nearer the lingo of the West than any other 
present day writer, and he never over-plays his 
hand/' GUNSIGHT PASS has got even more 
quick action romance and adventure than his last 
story, "The Big-Town Round-Up," and it's just as 
vividly written. The scene is laid in a boom oil- 
town lying in the midst of the cattle country, and 
the mingling of ranchmen and oil promoters makes 
a new kind of a combination in Western fiction. 

DESERT VALLEY By Jackson Gregory 

Many elements combine to promise a record-breaking sale for Jackson 
Gregory's powerful new story of the great, south-west ; his successful preceding 
novels have won for this author a large and enthusiastic audience : this audience 
alone will send "Desert Valley" through numerous printings. But the book will 
go further than that; decidedly the best thing Gregory has done, it is a vigorous, 
swiftly-moving tale of the gold mine regions, built on a plot as original as it is 
plausible. With frontispiece. $2.00. 



By Edison Marshall 

"As refreshing as a vacation in the North woods" is this 
new novel by the author of "The Voice of the Pack." The 
New York Times says: "Marshall is a great lover of the 
wilderness and knows a great deal about its life and 
secrets." "The Strength of the Pines" is a splendid novel 
of life in the open, of blood-stirring adventures during an 
Oregon mountain feud and of a brave man, inspired by the 
love of a splendid woman, winning out against odds with 
the forces of the wilderness an impartial and important 
factor. $1.90 net.

By Florence Bingham Livinston 

The cheerfulest, humanist, pleasantest story of 
the season. The sharp presentation of odd bits of hu- 
manity here, the humor of the book is delicious and it 
has a healthy making-the-best-of-things philosophy 
that is fairly exhilarating. It is concerned with the 
inhabitants of a group of tumble-down little tene- 
ments in California, especially with "Penzie," one of those women upon whose 
comfortable lap the world instinctively casts its troubles and her adventures in 
mothering. Net, $1.90.

Good Fiction For Any Reader 

KALEEMA By Marion McClelland 

This is a love story with plenty of laughter in it and also 
those big moments of high emotional tensity which readers like 
so much. The setting is as romantically strange and pictur- 
esque to the usual reader as if it were in some far-away coun- 
try : the setting is one of those heroic vagabonding little theatri- 
cal companies that play one-night stands. Net, $2.00.

THE GREEN BOUGH By E. Temple Thurston 

A novel that is unsurpassed for bigness of theme and 
beauty of execution. It tells the story of a woman who does 
not hesitate bravely to fulfill herself, by love and motherhood, 
in the face of narrow prejudice. The author of "The City 
of Beautiful Nonsense" and "The World of Wonderful 
Reality" has never written anything of deeper significance 
than this novel, and "The Green Bough" contains elements 
of the very greatest popularity. :Net, $2.00.

to Chicago, from Chicago to the White Mountains, and finally dis- 
covers her in the midst of storms of more kinds than one. Inter-

PRINCESS SALOME By Burris Jenkins 

A Tale of the Days of Camel-Bells

made her acquaintance than he learns that she is being forced into marriage, by 
her mercenary brothers, with a wealthy old man who is most repulsive to her. 
So infatuated is the hero with the beautiful girl that he determines, in spite of all 
obstacles, to win and marry her. Then begin his thrilling adventures. The set-

We all know that this appeal must be made very

"/ hold every man a debtor to his profes-

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. 

Employer and Employee 

THERE is no problem before the nation 
to-day that is more important than an 
improved adjustment between labor and 
management in industry. Much progress has 
been made in this field in recent years, and 
in spite of the reactionary conditions in such 
industries as steel and coal mining, no one is 
more conscious than the book-trade of the 
careful thought that is being given to this 
great human problem, as it is the book-trade, 
that supplies the readers or students of the 
day with the material for their study of em- 
ployment conditions. 

The tremendous depreciation in the value of 
currency caused by the war could not do 
otherwise than to leave a most difficult read- 
justment to be made as things regained their 
steadier basis, and it would be a great misfor- 
tune to all industries if the readjustments 
which become necessary should seriously mar 
the improving relation between management 
and labor. In spite of the prevalent belief on 
the part of labor that all management is grasp- 
ing and needs to be fought with tooth and nail, 
and in spite of the frequently expressed opin- 
ion by managers that the unions clog produc- 
tion and use unfair methods of warfare, there 
has been growing a better mutual apprecia- 
tion of the needs of both sides, and in the im- 
portant conferences that are coming, now that 
the 44 hour issue is to the front and reduction 
in pay insisted upon, the wisest leaders should 
become spokesmen, in order that disturbance 
may be avoided. 

The story of how May ist came to be recog- 
nized as a time when the 44 'hour week would 
go into effect in printing is a long and an ex- 
tremely complicated one. The fact is that, 
while it was talked of at the time when New 
York's agreement was made as a thing that 
would by this time be in effect the whole coun- 
try over, there really is no expectation of its 
coming except in New York, Chicago and one 

or two other cities. In the meantime, condi- 
tions have changed in all the industries, so that 
the most ardent union men could hardly claim 
that the employers or users of printing were 
making an unfounded argument when they say 
that a reduction of hours with equal pay would 
be an industrial impossibility at this time. An 
increase in cost simply cannot be passed on, 
and the unions ought to accept the approach 
of the employers on this point with the realiza- 
tion that the employer has no alternative but 
to make the demand for relief,' and if not re- 
lief in hours then a relief in wages that will 
bring costs down. 

The binders have a still less definite arrange- 
ment with their employees, than the Employ- 
ing Printers, yet the Employing Binders' As- 
sociation consists of business men who feel 
themselves morally bound by the kind of agree- 
ment that does exist. If their request for 
reconsideration of this is not taken at its face 
value by the unions, these employees will be 
greatly misjudging conditions, and binding 
business will go out of New York at a rate 
that will greatly endanger any future health 
in this industry for some time to come. Nego- 
tiations on these crucial issues will be going 
forward rapidly in the next month, and each 
side should give the other full credit and wish 
only well to the general prosperity of both 
management and labor. 

The Photo-Engraving Rates 

OF all the many cost increases that have 
come to the book publishing trade in 
the last few years, none has been o 
aggravating in its character and the form of 
its support as that which has been pushed 
forward in the photo-engraving trade. The 
cost of photo-engraving not only increased to 
two or three times its former rates, but the 
arrangement by which this was obtained was 
peculiar to that industry. 

The Photo-Engravers' Union, in endeavor- 
ing to get further increases in wages, put 
forward the argument that no employer could 
give proper working conditions and proper 
wages to his trained engravers unless that 
employer adopted as a minimum scale for 
charges to, his customers the rates which they 
then outlined. The producers adopted this 
scale, and any complaint by their customers as 
to these rates left them with the argument that, 
after all, the rates were not of their making, 
and that they could be in no way held re-

sponsible. The shops that were organized in 
this plan constituted nine-tenths of the pro- 
djuct of Manhattan. 

It seemed obvious that there had in this 
way developed a corporation and monopoly 
which was entirely in opposition to cur anti- 
trust legislation, and yet, being a monopoly 
of production and not of product, could not 
be covered by any taw on the statutes. Th^re 
has been passed by the legislature at Albany 
the Meyer-Martin Bill, which is intended as 
a method of ending this grave abuse, which 
very fortunately has not spread to any other 

This Bill will extend the Donnelly anti-Trust 
Act in such a way as to save the publishers 
from being the victims of the monopoly cre- 
ated by this agreement between labor unions 
and their employers. 

A Year of Weddings 

THE booksellers have been discussing in 
their Year Round Bookselling campaign 
plans for increasing the prominence of 
books in the field of wedding gifts. The 
Government Census-Bureau seems to be pre- 
pared, from the recent dispatches from Wash- 
ington, to. prove that this is to be an excep- 
tional year for that class of business. Its esti- 
mate is that 100,000 marriages will be cele- 
brated during the month of June alone. The 
government suggests that the decrease in the 
cost of living is responsible for the increase in 
weddings, but, whatever the cause, a vista of 
100,000 wedding present displays into which to 
bring books as a companion piece to berry 
spoons and rose bowls offers an unusually in- 
teresting campaign for booksellers in all com- 

The Travelers' Expenses 

RETAILERS are generally reported as 
proceeding carefully with buying and 
relying heavily on mail orders to pick 
up material needed in order to reduce stock 
and work for a quick turnover. This is un- 
doubtedly the well advised method and is 
bringing results, as from numerous directions 
come reports that stocks are well in. hand and 
business picking up steadily. The publisher 
on his part is proceeding in somewhat the 
same way, keeping his list low, manufacturing 
cautiously and also buying paper just as cau- 

One unavoidable difficulty in this method 
of retail buying is that travelers' expenses, in 
proportion to orders received, are running up 
heavily, railroad fare, hotel bills all are 
heavier than ever before and there has been 
no reduction in these items in the decline re- 
ported of the general cost of living. Retail- 
ers, realizing that the publisher's overhead is 
part of the problem of controling book prices, 
can make some contribution to the problem 
by giving the traveler every facility for prompt 
handling of business, by having stock orders 
checked in advance and by giving the traveler 
as prompt attention as possible in order that 
there may be short visits and many accounts 
covered. There is a feeling of togetherness 
in the book-trade that could be augmented by 
such moves as this. 

American Book Exporters May 
Suffer Serious Loss 

IN order that books may pass the English 
Custom House, there must be stamped on 
each book the words "Printed in U. S. A." 
This is an old regulation made under the 
Merchandise Marks Act of 1887, but infor- 
mation from London indicates that some 
American publishers have been careless in 
providing for this imprint, and the Commis- 
sioners of Customs have given word that 
"they will not be prepared to deal leniently 
with any further importations." 

Hitherto (under protest, of course), these 
Custom authorities have permitted the English 
importers of these books to go to the docks 
and stamp each book with the words, "Printed 
in U. S. A.," but this was a troublesome pro- 
ceeding at best and is not to be allowed. The 
alternative to such proceeding would seem to 
be confiscation, and one publisher has already 
written to American publishers that they can 
accept no responsibility for any books shipped 
to London which do not bear the printer's 
imprint or the words, "Printed in U. S. A.," 
and also gives word that any orders for 
American books are placed with that under- 

American publishers who do much exporting 
have usually formed a habit of putting this 
needed line on the back of the title page, and 
the same thing can be accomplished by having 
the printer put his name on the entire edition, 
intended either for American or English con- 

In England all books carry the printer's mark 
under an old ruling dating from the days 
when printers were suspected of too much 
freedom. The rule now is of real value and 
also of interest to readers. It might well be 
that if in America every printer carried his 
imprint on the! books manufactured there 
would be a stimulus to better standards of

The Story of Paper 

By Benjamin S. Van Wyck 

III. Early Days of the Industry in America 

[This is the third in Mr. Van Wyck's series on 
the history of the paper making industry. The first 
article, "From Papyrus To Machine Made" appeared 
in the January 22 number of the PUBLISHERS' WEEK- 
LY; and the second, "Paper Making in England," in 
the February 26 r umber. The fourth instalment con- 
tinuing the story, with special attention to the 
manufacture of book paper in America, will ,be pub- 
lished within a few weeks.] 

IN the early Colonial days we imported prac- 
tically all of our printed matter, and all of 
the paper used for any purpose whatsoever 
was brought from the mother country, until 
shortly after 1690 when the first paper mill 
in America started to produce paper of an 
inferior quality. In general, the colonies were 
interested in the establishment of manufac- 
turies of such products as iron, grain and 
leather. These staples constituted the first 
efforts of our manufacturers, and, rightfully 
they should. Boston and Philadelphia were 
the leading printing centers and naturally the 
first paper mill would be near one of these 

First Mill at Germantown 

Altho the imported paper amply took care 
of the needs of the colonial printers and pub- 
lishers, there were some that chafed at the 
delay that occasionally attended the delivery 
of it from overseas. William Bradford was 
an ambitious printer of the day and his popu- 
larity with the leading business men of the 
city of Philadelphia made it possible for him 
to promote the interests of a paper maker, 
William Rittenhouse, by name, who had learned 
the trade in Germany and later became a regis- 
tered paper maker in Amsterdam, Holland, 
and had finally emigrated to America. Brad- 
ford, the printer, Rittenhouse, the paper maker 
chose a spot in Germantown for America's first 
mill, and to-day the property is part of the 
Fairmount park system of the city of Phila- 
delphia. The enterprise was a success from 
the start. Bradford took his share of the 
stipulated percentage of the profits in the form 
of finished paper, and personally took no part 
in the active management of the mill. Ritten- 
house ultimately -became sole owner. No 
record states how much nor how good a qual- 
ity of paper was produced. The Rittenhouse 
water-mark appears in copies of the American 
Weekly Mercury of Philadelphia as late as 
1720. This newspaper was owned and oper- 
ated by Andrew Bradford, a son of William 
who assisted Rittenhouse to establish himself 
in the mill on the Wissahickon creek. 

In New England an act for the encourage- 
ment of paper making was passed by the court 
of the province on September I3th, 1728, Which 
gave the exclusive privilege to Daniel Hench- 
man, Benj. Faneuil, Thos. Hancock, Gillman 
Phillips and Harvey Bering of producing pa- 
per in the province of Massachusetts, pro- 

viding that the product was manufactured in 
a given time, of a stipulated quality, and even 
the quantity was specified. All of the men 
mentioned were relatives with the exception 
of Dering and all were interested in the print- 
ing, publishing, and bookselling businesses. The 
mill was located in the town of Milton and 
from the records it appears its career was a 
checkered one. 

The Ephrata mill at Lancaster, Pa., con- 
ducted by the German Pietists who lived under 
monastic rules was one of the many indus- 
trial activities of the sect. The paper pro- 
duced carried a curious water-mark, the de- 
sign of which was Latin cross supporting two 
keys surrounded by a border bearing the 
words, Zion, at the top and Efrata, at the bot- 
tom. The keys represented a mystical book of 
the I7th century, 'The Keys of Solomon" 
which was cherished by the Pietists. 

Many of the Colonial paper making- ventures 
received aid from their respective provinces 
and practically none was a success from a 
financial viewpoint. Practical paper makers 
had not migrated to this country and the few 
that did were forced to teach the art to work- 
men who were poorly paid, as the industry at 
the start was not a paying one. The British 
manufacturers were not in sympathy with the 
colonial movement to establish home industries 
and as a consequence did everything in their 
power to thwart the growth of any manu- 
factury that might shut out goods produced in 

Tn 1748 the needs of the publishers became 
so pressing for paper that neither the English, 
Continental nor 'Colonial mills could meet the 
demand. The situation became so serious with 
the newspapers that some suspended for weeks 
at a time and others resorted to expedients 
such as cutting down the size of the page and 
doing away with the unprinted margins. In 
Boston a large quantity of Papal Bulls which 
were salvaged from a Spanish sailing ship, al- 
tho printed on one side, were used by Thomas 
Fleet to reproduce in printing the popular 
songs of the day. This particular paper was 
reported to be of an excellent quality, far 
superior to any produced in the colonies. 

Rags and Wags 

iPaper became very scarce occasioned by the 
demand and the lack of ragfs. As has ever been 
the condition in the paper industry the need of 
the basic raw material then was just as acute 
as it is to-day. We are worried about the 
wood supply; they were worried about the rag 
supply. Advertisements were put out in the 
form of hand-bills and appeared in the news- 
papers. One poetic individual tried to snare 
the supply from the rag bags with the follow-

"Sweet ladies, pray be not offended, 

Nor mind the jest of sneering wags 
No harm, believe us, is intended, 
When humbly we request your rags. 

"The scraps which you reject, unfit 

To clothe the tenant of a hovel, 

May shine in sentiment and wit, 

And help to make a charming novel. 

""The cap, exalted thoughts will raise, 

The ruffle in description flourish; 
Whilst on the glowing work we gaze, 
The thought will love excite and nourish. 

"Each beau in study will engage, 

His fancy doubtless will be warmer, 
When writing on the milk white page, 
Which once, adorned liis charmer. 


"Tho foreigners may sneer and vapor, 

We no longer forc'd their books to buy 
Our gentle belles will furnish paper, 
Our sighing beau will wit supply." 

The southern colonies were particularly hard 
hit as few mills were established there, and 
when one was opened shortly after 1776 the 
following notice was put in the newspapers to 
awaken interest in supplying rags : 

A Colonial Publicity Campaign 

"''By our unhappy Contest with Great Britain, 
and the Necessary Restrictions on our Trade, 
Paper has been an Article for which we, in this 
State, have much suffered, for though there 
are many Paper Mills in the Northern Col- 
onies, where Paper is made in great Perfection, 
yet, by the Interruption of the Colony Trade 
"by Water, the Southern Colonies have experi- 
enced a very great Scarcity of that necessary 
Article. To remedy this Evil and throw in 
their Mite towards the Perfection of Amer- 
ican Manufactures, the , Proprietors of a Paper 
Mill just erected near Hillsborough, in Orange 
County, give Notice to the Public, that their 
Mill is now ready to work, and if a sufficient 
quantity of Rags can be had, they will be 
able to supply the State with all Sorts of 
Paper. They therefore request the favor of 
the Public, and more particularly the Mis- 
tresses of Families, and the Ladies in general, 
whose more peculiar Province, it is, to have 
all their Rags and Scraps of Linen of all 
Sorts ; old Thread Stockings, Thrums from 
their Linen Looms and every kind of Linen, is 
useful. As this undertaking is Novel, saving 
of Rags may perhaps be thought too trifling, 
and below the Notice of the good Matrons of 
the State; but when they consider they are 
aiding and assisting in a necessary Manufac- 
ture, and when the young Ladies are assured, 
that by the sending to the Paper Mill an old 
Hankerchief, n6 longer fit to cover their snowy 
Breasts, there is a. Possibility of its -returning 
to them again in the more pleasing form of a 
Billet Doux from their Lovers, the Proprietors 
flatter themselves with great Success. Per- 
sons in the several Towns and Counties in the 
State will be appointed to .receive Rags, for 
which a good price will be giv.en." 

During the War of Independence paper pro- 
duction came to a standstill and finally all men 
in the- combatant service, who were skilled in 
paper making were forced out of the a.rmy and 

returned to their tubs. The Assemblies were 
slow; to understand the seriousness of the 
need for paper, and it became necessary for 
various business organizations to submit peti- 
tions emphatically stating what should be 
done, then and then only was any action taken. 
One of the serious yet amusing incidents was 
the shortage of paper for use in cartridges. In 
Philadelphia one searcher found an attic full 
of printed sermons as well as a number of 
unbound copies of Fox's "Book of Martyrs," 
the combined lots were used as covering for 
hot shot delivered to the enemy. Various doc- 
uments of the Army of the Republic refer to 
the shortage of paper and some of minor im- 
portance were written on the white margins of 
printed pages. 

The paper of the colonial period was of 
poor appearance, a dirty color and of a rough 
surface. An examination of books printed in 
America on domestic paper shows the back- 
wardness or lack of skill of the industry. 
There -is one good feature, however, that is, 
the paper endured altho a certain amount of 
discoloration has occurred which is probably 
due to careless handling in allowing the pages, 
or the whole book, to be exposed to natural 
light. It is not surprising that the industry 
was backward in development when it is con- 
sidered that a few expert workers with in- 
ferior moulds and inexperienced helpers were 
forced to all sorts of jexpediencies to produce 
sheets of paper of any kind. 

Appeal for Protection 

Shortly after 1790, one hundred years after 
the Rittenhouse mill was built on the Wis- 
sahickon, there were two hundred mills in 
seventeen states producing hand-made paper. 
In that year 425,521* reams were produced at 
a value of $690,000. Eleven standard sizes 
of paper ranging from 26^ x33 to 14^4 x i6f 
seemed to meet the needs of the publishers and 
printers. These mills started agitating the sub- 
ject of protection from foreign competition, 
and in 1809 Albert Gallatin, Secretary of the 
Treasury, was called upon to take a census of 
the industry and to determine if protection 
were necessary. The second war with Eng- 
land came so quickly that all legislation was 
dropped for the time being. During 1816 the 
question was revived and resulted in a duty 
of thirty-five per cent being established, but 
it was not sufficient to keep out the industrial 
invaders for the next two years. The intro- 
duction of the cylinder machine at the Gilpin 
mill at Wilmington, Del;, in 1810 and .else- 
where placed the American manufacturers in 
a better position as they were much quicker 
in establishing the machine-made product than 
was possible in the British market. Their 
hand-made grades were much sunerior to those 
made by our vatmen, and we, therefore, had 
less resistance to overcome in introducing the 
machine dualities. 

The Gilpin mill was the first .one in ^ the 
United States to produce paper commercially 
by machine in continuous lengths. This par- 
ticular equipment was of the cylinder type and 

Atril 9, 1921 


its career as a producer of quality book paper 
was settled when the first Fourdrinier machine 
was imported for the Beach Hommerkin and 
Kearny mill at Saugerties, N. Y., in 1830. The 
credit goes to the Smith and Winchester Man- 
ufacturing Co. of South Windham, Conn., for 
the building of the first Fourdrinier in this 
country. With the introduction of (machine 
paper the price declined sharply, and the pro- 
duction of printed matter increased beyond the 
wildest dreams of the publishers. To give you 
an idea of the development of the paper indus- 
try after the advent of machinery the census 
of 1850 revealed that there were 700 mills, 
100,000 operatives and the mills required 405,- 
000,000 pounds of rags. England, the same 
year, consumed 440,000,000 pounds. 

The latter part of the ipth century saw the 

breaking up of the paper industry into divi- 
sions such as groups of writing, book wrap- 
ping, tissue, board and cover paper mills, each 
an industry in itself. In 1854 the beginning of 
the end of rags for general use in paper making 
was forcaste when Hugh Burgess and Charles 
Watt introduced the caustic alkaline process 
of treating wood which is, to-day, commonly 
known as the soda pulp process. Between 18705 
and 1884 the sulphite process discovered by 
Tilghman of Philadelphia and perfected by 
Fry and Eckman of Sweden made possible the 
production of an all wood fibre sheet that 
brought the price of paper to a figure, per- 
mitting printed matter to be produced in vol- 
ume. From now on we shall deal exclusively 
with the papers used in producing books and 
the advantages some have over others. 

Canadian Authors Oppose New Copyright Law 

By Frederick D. Hartman 

IT has often been demonstrated in many dif- 
ferent connections that any act performed 
solely for selfish interest or for the purpose 
of "getting even" will very frequently react 
against the very people it is intended to protect. 
Such would appear to be the case with the 
Amendment read before the Canadian Parlia- 
ment February 21, 1921, as Bill 12 An Act to 
amend and consolidate the Law relating to 
Copyright. This Bill, apparently proposed and 
supported by the Department of Trade and 
Commerce is a direct slap at the United States 
Authors and Publishers for the purpose of 
getting even with them for the "Manufactur- 
ing Clause" which demands that an author 
before obtaining copyright in the United States 
must have his work printed and bound within 
the United States. 

The United States is practically the only 
civilized nation not a party to the Berne Con- 
vention which first met September gth, 1886, 
and last met November I3th, 1908, and formed 
reciprocal copyright laws between the con- 
tracting nations. Canada has been a party to 
this convention thru her allegiance to the 
United Kingdom, and it has been possible for 
American authors to obtain protection for their 
works in Canada by simultaneously offering 
them for sale in England with their publica- 
tion in the United States. But, as before 
stated, a Canadian author must have his work 
printed and bound in the United States .before 
receiving protection there. 

In 1906 the Canadian Parliament passed a 
copyright act which gave the Canadian pub- 
lishers the right to publish any outside work 
and receive a Canadian copyright, providing the 
work was printed and bound in Canada, but it 
did not prevent the importation of foreign 
works and the sale of a book in Canada is so 
small as compared with the sale in the United 
States, this did not form an effective weapon 
with which to combat the American "Manu- 
facturing" clause. The amendment just re- 
ferred to which is now under consideration 

would prohibit the importation of American 
works and license pirating of any American 
book by the Canadian publishers and give them 
protection for fifty years. 

It gradually dawned on the Canadian 
authors, who represent the makers of all copy- 
rightable material that this would react more 
severely against themselves, as their greatest 
sales were made in the United States. Ac- 
cordingly in response to invitations sent out 
from the office of the Canadian Bookman over 
one hundred and fifty of the Canadian authors, 
met in Montreal, March nth and I2th and 
formed a permanent organization to be knowni 
as the Canadian Authors' Association. This 
organization, with John Murray Gibbon as its 
president, appointed a committee to be known 
as the copyright committee to study the new 
amendment and to bring before Parliament the 
views of the Canadian Authors' Association 
with a view to supporting or opposing the new 
amendment as they saw fit. 

This committee consisted of : Arthur 
Stringer (Chatham, Ont.), Madge Macbeth 
(Ottawa), R. J. C. 'Stead (Ottawa), Warwick 
Chipman K. C. (Montreal) and John Murray 
Gibbon, acting ex-officio. This committee has 
visited Ottawa and given the matter careful 
study and formed its report, part of w'hich is 
quotecj below. 

While appreciating the friendly intention of 
the Government to improve existing copyright 
conditions in Canada, we have come to the 
unanimous conclusion that this Bill in its pres- 
ent form contains proposals which, if carried 
out, would result in grave injustice to the 
Canadian author, which are not in accordance 
with international comity, and which do not 
conform to the recognised interpretation of 
Copyright, namely "in law, the right, belonging 
exclusively to the author ojr his assignees, of 
multiplying for sale copies of an original work 
or composition in literature or art." 

This Bill proposes to establish formalities 
in contravention of the spirit and letter of the- 

1 120 

The Publishers' Weekly 

Revised Feme Convention set out in the Sec- 
ond (Schedule to this Act. (c. f. article 4, page 
26.) The new proposals would result in 
Canada being ranked as an outlaw nation in 
regard to International Copyright, an em- 
barrassing situation in view of Canada's ad- 
herence to the League of Nations. 

The licensing clauses in this Bill deprive the 
author of his right to make his own terms 
with the 'Canadian licensee, hand over that 
right at an arbitrary figure under conditions 
which would permit the licensee to garble or 
abbreviate the work without the author's con- 
sent, to publish it in ,a cheap edition without 
regard to appearance, and to prevent the pro- 
duction or importation of a correct or more 
presentable edition for a period of fifty years. 

Serial Rights 

So far as serial rights are concerned, the 
clauses are drawn up in evident ignorance of 
the conditions governing serial publication to- 
day, would produce disastrous confusion and 
would inflict grave hardship on a very large 
number of Canadian authors without con- 
ferring any benefit on Canadian literature 
i . . .evidently aimed at the United States, 
it would deprive the American author of 
Canadian copyright unless or until the Minis- 
ter granted that privilege, and would deprive 
the- Canadian author of Canadian copyright if 
first publication of his work is in the United 
States, unless the Minister certifies the United 
States as a privileged nation a withholding of 
privilege the continued withholding of which 
will jeopardize the profitable American market 
of many Canadian authors, a market which is 
frequently their chief source of income owing 
to the naturally small market in Canada itself. 

This Bill destroys the reciprocal conditions 
on which the Canadian Author's right in the 
United States rests and thus automatically 
destroys the Canadian Author's protection in 
the United States, which is at present protected 
by the Convention between Great Britain and 
the United States as declared in the Presiden- 
tial Proclamation of 1910. 

'Clause 8 of this section (proposed amend- 
ment) would permit the Canadian licensee 
to print without the author's consent a twenty- 
five cent edition on a two and a half cent 
royalty of a book which may be well printed 
(perhaps expensively illustrated) and bound, 
and is being marketed to his own satisfaction 
at $1.50 to $4.00, on a royaltv of 10% to 
25%, according to the popularitv of the au- 
th'or. That twenty-five cent edition may be 
garbled and the licensee can orevent the later 
production or importation of the better edition 
for fifty years.. 

"In the case of, a new edition ( which as re- 
gards text books is often vital to the repu- 
tation of the author) the licensee unwilling to 
go to the exDense of new plates or revisions 
could prevent the author from issuing a new 
edition in Canada thru another publisher or 
importing the new edition printed outside 
Canada, thus injuring his reputation. 

.If this licensing system be adhered to in 

spite of our contentions, these provisions 
must be amended so that in case of a book 
already otherwise printed: (i) the licensee 
shall be required to produce the author's work 
in^a format equal in quality to that of the 
original publication unless with the author's 
consent to any other format. (2) the licensee 
shall not abbreviate or change the work with- 
out the author's consent. (3) the licensee shall 
pay at least the same royalty percentage as 
the author retains from the original publisher 
unless with the author's consent. (4) the 
licensee shall have the sole right to print such 
book in Canada for five years only, unless 
with the consent of the author to a longer 
period. (5) in cases where revised editions 
have been printed outside Canada, the licensee 
in Canada shall be required to print a similar 
revised edition, or forfeit his license. 

The .serial licensing system proposed by this 
Act might be interpreted to deprive a Canadian 
author selling a serial in the United States of 
all returns on his "second" and "third" serial 
rights, in his native country. Besides this, it 
prejudices a Canadian author before an Ameri- 
can publisher, since it prevents the Canadian 
writer disposing of a product with a clear 
title, and inferentially bars from Canada any 
United States periodical containing that 
product. And it further injures the Canadian 
author because it not only limits his market, 
but gives to the magazine editor of his native 
country the opportunity to supply his fiction 
needs with material freely commandeered, un- 
der his licensing system, from American peri- 
odicals. Unfair also is the elimination of 
competitive bidding in an open market, and the 
abrogation of an author's traditional rights in 
his own product as set out in the Berne 

Motion Picture Rights 

Commercially, today, the motion picture re- 
turns from a picturized novel far outweigh the 
book returns, very conservatively they might 
be stated to be, on the average, three times 
as great. This Bill fails to protect the author 
in this field, neglects to enunciate those rights, 
and fails to stipulate, as any such Act should, 
that these subsidiary or derivative rights, un- 
less definitely and specifically stipulated or 
otherwise by special contract or agreement, re- 
pose and remain with the author. 

The ambiguous wording of Sub-Section I of 
Section 19, in fact, might make the fifth and 
sixth lines refer to motion picture reproduc- 
tion, but if this is the construction to be ap- 
plied Sub-Section 2 of the same Section per- 
mits of the appropriation of these picture 
rights for the ridiculous price of two cents per 
print of the film. Obviously this sub-section 
should be redrafted, and the author's com- 
pulsion to dispose of valuable cinematographic 
rights should not be involved in his right of 
obtaining a copyright on the written, or liter- 
ary, product of his imagination. The dis- 
posal of picture rights should remain untram- 
melled, with the author. 

This Committee is firmly convinced that the 

April '!), 1921 


interests of Canadian authors would be best 
served by immediate adherence to the Revised 
Berne Convention, and to the Copyright Act 
of 1911 of the United Kingdom, in so far as 
its provisions are not rendered unnecessary by 
the provisions of the Canadian Copyright Act. 

This Committee also reiterates its strong 
opposition to the licensing and importing 
clauses of this Bill, which it considers per- 
nicious and out of place in a Copyright Act, 
the function of which is not the protection of 
printing but the protection of the author. 

This Committee recognizes the disadvantages 
resting upon Canadian printing interests be- 
cause of the manufacturing condition im- 
posed by the United States, but submits that 
such disadvantages should not be and cannot 

ultimately be remedied by making Canada an 
outlaw nation in matters of copyright. It 
suggests that such disadvantages might be re- 
moved by negotiation, and it expresses the 
hope that the Government will institute such 
negotiations with a view to insuring the prop- 
erty rights of an author in his work in all 
countries as other forms of property right are 
now universally recognized." 

In an interview last week B. K. Sandwell, 
editor of the Canadian Bookman and Secre- 
tary of the Canadian Authors' Association, 
stated that so strong was the opposition of 
the authors to the proposed amendment that 
they proposed to fight it even at the expense 
of 'having the present copyright laws remain- 
ing unchanged. 

Adventures of a Bookseller 

By Ketch 

44| THINK I will wait for you here," said 
I Mrs. Shopper. "I am very tired, my 

"I'll only be a minute," answered Mrs. Did- 
actic. "Here is a seat where you can rest." 

Mrs. Shopper sank into the seat, while Mrs. 
Didactic continued down the store where she 
approached Mr. Ondeck and said, 

"I would like a copy of 'The Deserted Vil- 
lage' by Laurel Ooze." 

Mr. Ondeck almost lost his equilibrium. 

"Do you er yes ma'am." 

And he proceeded to produce a copy of 
Goldsmith's "Deserted Village" in a cheap 
cloth edition. 

Mrs. Didactic looked at it a moment, then 
said that it was not the one she wanted. 

"No; this is not it." 

"Oh. ... By whom did you say?" 

"Laurel Ooze. A small leather bound book. 
Do you not know it?" 

"I'm afraid I don't. Is it something re- 

"Don't you know?" 

"Well, no ma'am, I don't seem to recall that 
author. But if you will wait a moment I'll 
look it up." 

"Kindly send me somebody who knows 
something !" exclaimed his customer. "I have 
no time to waste while you look it up." 

Mr. Ondeck called Miss Bittersweet of the 
general literature section. 

"Do you know a book called 'The Deserted 
Village' by Laurel Ooze?" 

"Oh. you mean Goldsmith's 'Deserted Vil- 
lage, don't you?" said Miss Bittersweet with a 

Mrs. Didactic flushed purple and tapped the 
floor with her foot. 

"May I speak to the manager?" she said 

"Sorry, but he is not in town to-day," re- 
plied Mr. Ondeck. 

"Well, is there anybody in this store that 
knows anything about books? Really this is 

distressing! It seems strange that a bookstore 
should know nothing about books." 

"I am sorry," said Mr. Ondeck abjectly. 
"But I am not acquainted with such an author. 
I suppose it is a parody on the original. Are 
you sure you have the correct author?" 

Mrs. Didactic gasped. 

"My dear sir, I sazv the book last night! 
It is published by the Mifflin-Hutton Co., if that 
will help you any." 

".Mifnin-Hutton Co?" said Mr. Ondeck. "I 
know of no such publishing firm. Could you 
mean the Houghton-Mififlin Co?" 

"Young man!" cried Mrs. Didactic, "I did 
not come in here to be insulted ! Kindly look it 
up in your catalog if you have one." 

(Mr. Ondeck hastily ran thru the Houghton- 
Mifflin list of new books, but to no avail. Then 
he looked thru the general catalog under the 
author but found nothing, and was about to 
give up when a sudden thought struck him. 

"Mr. Detail," said he, "who is it that makes 
those small leather bound editions of the class- 
ics that we had here at Christmas?" 

"You mean those "Ooze leather booklets? 
Crowell puts them out, and I think we have 
one or two left from Christmas." 

A moment later Ondeck found the very vol- 
ume he wanted, neatly boxed and bearing this 
superscription : 

'Deserted Village' 'Goldsmith . . . Laurel 

He hurried with it back to Mrs. Didactic 
who immediately identified it as the volume 
she sought. 

"Ah! That is it," said she. "Wrap it up 

A moment later she reicdined her friend at 
the door. 

"My dear !" exclaimed Mrs. Shopper, "What 
a time you were gone !" 

"What can you expect!" cried Mrs. Did- 
actic. "These clerks in here know nothing. 
They had "ever heard of Laurel Ooze!" 

"I know," said Mrs. Shopper, sympathetic- 
ally. "They are hopeless !" 


The Publishers' Weeklv 

Bookshops and Decoration 

THAT part of New York that centers 
around the section of Park Avenue and 
Fifty-Ninth Street is becoming increas- 
ingly one of the most active of bookselling dis- 
tricts, and many of the shops are worth close 
study as examples of shop planning. 

The Neighborhood Bookshop at the corner 
of Park Avenue and Fifty-Sixth Street was 
opened by Lawrence Gomme this winter, and 
has already built up for itself a loyal clien- 

Altho in the midst of an area of imposing 
apartment houses, this particular block; is one 
of older rive-story buildings that was com- 
pletely remodeled for business purposes. Mr. 
Gomme has leased the corner, and has about 
thirty foot frontage on Madison Avenue by 
fifteen on the side street. This gives a large 
window space, which has been most effectively 
used without sacrificing the need for floor 
area. The English method of bringing the 
window display shelves ~close to the glass has 
been used. Thus only a foot of the store depth 
is used, and hundreds of books brought close 
out, where they not only attract attention 
by their combined colors as one approaches 
from a distance, but by the jacket paragraphs 
and open pages when one is close up. Very 
carefully arranged reflector lights have been 
designed which throw a brilliant illumination 
down the whole front of these shelves at night. 
The display shelves inside have been built up 
from moveable sections two feet in width and 
about six feet high. These sections have been 
moved about and locked fast together to form 
wall cases and partitions until Mr. Gomme has 
worked out the arrangement best suited to his 
floorspace, and by means of careful classifica- 
tion a vast amount of stock is most attract- 
ively presented. 

At one end room for the rarer items is 
marked off by bookshelf partitions, an arrange- 

ment which gives a more quiet and intimate 
contact with out-of-the-way material. In this 
inner room are two chintz covered chairs that 
came from Dickens' house at Gadshill. One 
feature of the shelf display immediately at- 
tracts the eye of a bookseller, and that is the 
prominent price figures on the back of each 
wrapper. Mr. 'Gomme has found that people 
like to know the prices, and he has wished to 
avoid the ofttimes marked out figures on the 
back of many wrappers. He has had price 
marks in bold half-inch figures designed, and 
these pasted on the wrappers make self-service 

Another interesting shop on a smaller scale 
is that opened this month by Miss Gardes 
at Park Avenue and Fifty-Ninth Street. This 
shop is an example of what can be done in a 
front small area by careful thought to fittings. 
The shop is about ten by fifteen and a few feet 
from one of the busiest corners. Four feet 
from the back wall has been built a partition 
with an arched doorway, leaving a work and 
storage room behind. The shelves are of most 
attractive brown stain, and the chief display 
is on these, the table in the middle being used 
for a few volumes that seem especially timely. 
The window is 2 l /2 feet deep, backed by a 
batik curtain and illuminated by a well selected 
light hanging low from above. A mirror at 
the side of the window gives tfie impression 
of wider display space. It is so beautiful 
a window in arrangement and lighting that it 
easily gets attention among the many windows 
in that retail section. The shop fittings were 
designed in consultation with Russell Hertz, 
a famous interior decorator, and the care in 
their preparation has resulted in a shop that 
ought quickly to build i* its own neighbor- 
hood clientele. Current books, children's 
books, magazines and a circulating library are 
features of the shop's plan. 

Order Direct Business 

THE usual custom in the book-trade, when 
a dealer wishes to have a volume sent di- 
rect to the customer, is to fill out some 
sort of form so that the publisher may have 
a proper record and be supplied with a 
shipping label bearing the bookseller's own 
address. This kind of business is an important 
part of good book service, as it frequently en- 
ables the bookseller to save one to two days 
in delivering books, even when the customer 
may be in his own city, and when the place 
for delivery is at a distance the time saved is 
even more valuable. 

It is a form of business, however, that puts 
additional detail upon the shipping depart- 
ments of publishers, and the retailer, wishing 
the best service, needs a form of label which 
will make it easy for the publisher to handle 
the order without needless writing, and which 
will leave in the publisher's hand a good record 

for later reference. Many publishers are find- 
ing that booksellers become careless about using 
the order-direct method. If, when an order 
for a book is sent, the address of the consignee 
is written only on the label enclosed, the ship- 
ping department of the publisher is forced to 
copy this address onto the letter, in order that 
there may be in his hands record of the order. 
Some booksellers have omitted this duplica- 
tion of address purposely on the theory that it 
left in the hands of the publisher a buyer's ad- 
dress which the publisher might immediately 
take advantage of for his own mail order pur- 
pose. It is obvious, however, that a publisher 
must keep some record of where the book has 
gone, and if there was any intention on his 
part to pick up addresses from the retailer, a 
practice that probably never has developed, the 
address could be as easily copied from the- 
shipping tag as from the attached letter. 

April 9, 1921 


Many booksellers, according to the reports 
of the publishers, do not even enclose a filled 
in label for use on the package. This opens 
up the possibility of a mistake in copying. It 
would seem much better practice always to en- 
close the label, in which case the responsibility 
for the correct address rests with the book- 
seller. Other booksellers put the directions 
for sending books direct in among typewritten 
or hand-written lists of other types of orders, 
with a consequent confusion. 

The best practice is to have an order form 

with perforated label attached, this order form 
to be devoted to that one order alone, with a 
careful description of title and edition and a 
repetition of the address which is on the label. 
Each order form should have a number, so 
that books that go astray can be easily traced. 
It might be that the Booksellers' Association 
could work out some uniformity in order sys- 
tems that would enable the publisher to handle 
mail direct orders with greater speed and ac- 
curacy to the benefit of all.

THE correspondence which has come to 
the chairman in charge of the conven- 
tion activities, indicates there is going 
to be a large attendance. It is particularly 
pleasing to note moreover, that most of the 
members who have written us, say they are 
going to bring their families. Also a large 
number have made their reservations at the 
Traymore and they are planning to go down, 
Monday evening, May 9 and stay until Friday 
morning, May 13. Those who have not al- 
ready done so are advised to reserve their 
rooms immediately at the Hotel Traymore, 
the convention headquarters. Rooms are $4 
to $5 per day per person and up, provided two 
people occupy a double room. Meals may be 

had either a la carte or on the American plan 
for $5 a day. 

Word comes from the author of the play 
which is to be given on the evening of May 
n, that the last act is about completed and 
that the cast has been selected and that re- 
hearsals have begun. 

A 1 special committee to look after the spe- 
cial features for the banquet has been select- 
ed and has just had its initial meeting. All 
the details have now been planned and four 
sub-committees appointed which are working 
in their respective fields. It is unfortunately 
impossible to give out muchi information 
about what these committees are doing, as 
the whole scheme for the banquet this year 

1 124 

The Publishers' Weekly 

is held a secret, as it is quite different from 
anything that has been given before. 

Whitney Darrow of the entertainment 
committee announces special convention rates 
of a fare and a half have been granted by the 
Trunk Line Association, The Central Passen- 
ger Association, the Western Passenger As- 
sociation., and the Southwestern Passenger 
Association. Anyone attending the Conven- 
tion from these districts can secure his return 
trip ticket for half the regular fare, provided 
a total of 350 people from these districts take 
advantage of it. For the Trans-Continental 
Passenger Association and New England 
Passeenger Association it is impossible to 
get this convention rate, but those coming 
from these territories can secure tourists' 
fares and they should consult their local 
ticket office regarding this. 

A bulletin is being prepared which will be 
sent out to the members and a copy run in 
the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY and Newsdealer and 
Stationer, which will give information in de- 
tail about railroad rates. 

Mr. Crowell, in cHarge of the Program 
Committee, has secured some splendid fea- 

ture talks for the convention. Among the 
speakers who can be announced at this time 
is Carl H. Milam, secretary of the American 
Library Association, who will discuss "How 
Shall We Reach Non-Book Readers?" Henry 
B. Sell of Harper's Bazar, formerly the book 
editor of the Chicago Daily News, and Robert 
Cortes Holliday, known for his editorship of 
The Bookman and his genial essays, will talk 
on "What the People Want to Read." 

Mr. Crowell plans to have a merchandise 
manager from one of the great department 
stores tell how to create a public and how to 
equip this public with a taste for good books. 
There will be representatives from large and 
small bookstores, to discuss the same subject. 
John R. Wildman, one of the members of the 
firm of Haskins and Sells, will explain an 
"Ideal Accounting System for Bookstores." 

As an aid to supplement these speeches, 
and others yet to be announced, there will be 
a question box at the convention, and the 
committee in charge have agreed to arrange 
that every question will be answered, either 
personally, by mail, or in the column trade of 
the trade journals. 

"The Play's The Thing" 

SPILLED are the beans ! Out is the secret ! 
We have among us ACTORS! Can you 
imagine a bunch of book salesmen, pub- 
lishers and the like going thru the humdrum 
routine of selling and publishing when the urge 
to act lies dormant within them, waiting for 
the one grand opportunity to express itself ! 
Did you know that Johnny Winters possessed 
a more highly developed dramatic technique 
than the whole Barrymore family combined? 
Did you know that Mel Minton could act rings 
around Lionel Atwill and Hale Hamilton? 
Talk about talent! Last Friday, the Aldine 
Club housed the most impressive conglomera- 
tion of talent that ever conglomerated at the 
Aldine Club on April ist (curses, that's a 
hoodoo day). Whitney Darrow, who is chair- 
man of about everything connected with the 
next Convention of the A. B. A., thought that 
as long as the talent was available, the -book- 
trade might just as well see it in action. 

So said talent tripped its temperamental way 
to the Aldine Club, where the play was con- 
ceived, cast and set in motion. Bob Anderson^ 
(Phil's Brother), the demon author-editor- 
salesman-advertising man and what not gave 
further evidence of his versatility by blossom- 
ing forth as a play-wright. He's written a lol- 
lapolooza of a play a sort of semi-tragic- 
comedy, with or without custard, and with more 
or less thrills than "The Fragrant Duke." : It 
is a play that will make you weep when you 
see it and of course you won't miss it. No- 
body who goes to the Atlantic City Convention 
will miss it. Even those who do not see it may 
not miss it. But if you are a bookseller, pub- 
lisher, salesman or author, you must see the 
play. My Gawd! how you must see that play! 

It is now in rehearsal, under the direction of 
Professor Anderson and Earl Balch, the boy 
baritone. Joe Green has not quite decided 
which part will part him from the remainder 
of his reputation, but he'll be in the cast. So 
will Guy Holt, Howard Lewis, the only and 
original Harry 'Savage, Mr. Houston's man 
Crowell, and a choice assortment of handsome 
devils, handpicked from the wealth of avail- 
able material. 

Is Adam Burger in the cast? Why, of 
course he is ! We thought you knew there 
simply couldn't be a play without Adam. If 
we had left him out he would have climbed 
up the lattice scenery and got in anyway. 

Mr. Darrow refuses to reveal the locale of 
the rehearsals. "We can afford to take no 
chances," he said, vaguely enough, "but, seri- 
ously, we have a good play, a good cast, and 
a healthy ambition to give the convention two 
hours of original entertainment" 

The Paper Market 

THE market prices on book paper have gone 
down even more rapidly than had been hoped 
for at the first of the year. The demand has 
fallen off so that warehouses have been obliged 
to compete for customers for the first time in 
three years, and mill finish book paper is cur- 
rently quoted at about nine cents in the New 
York market. This is about half of the price 
for such paper bought in the open market 
three months ago and a saving of about one- 
third on the figures quoted on large contracts 
for last year. It would seem likely from the 
forecast in the paper trade that the figures 
now quoted may remain the average cost dur- 
ing 1921. 

April 9, 1921 


George H. Mifflin, 1845-1921 

ON April 5th, at the family home at 85 
Marlboro Street, Boston, George Har- 
rison Mifflin, president of Houghton 
Mifflin Company, died in his 76th year after 
an illness of several months. Mr. Mifflin was 
one of the leading figures in American pub- 
lishing history, who, in the span of his own 
publishing experience), bound together the 
great days of 
New England 
writing with the 
present expansion 
and increased 
scope of the best 
American pub- 

He was born 
in Boston on 
May ist, 1845, 
son of Charles 
and Mary 
Mi f f 1 i n. . He 
graduated from 
Harvard in the 
class of 1865. 
Two years later 
he joined the 
house of Kurd 
& Houghton, 
this firm being 
a p u b 1 i s h in g 
house organized 
by Melancthon 
M. Kurd of New 
York and Henry 
O. Houghton, 
owner and direc- 
tor of the River- 
side Press, Cam- 
bridge, and con- 
ducted under the 
business name of 
H. O. Hough- 
ton & C o m- 
pany. Five years 
later he was admitted to the firm. 

On the occasion of the celebration of Mr. 
Mifflin's fiftieth birthday, Mr. Houghton, 
speaking at a gathering of their organiza- 
tion, told of how Mr. Mifflin had "with won- 
derful persistence insisted on having an op- 
portunity to prove himself in the business, 
an opportunity which he secured, and from 
which beginning he rose step by step to the 
position he then held." 

In 1878 the new firm of Houghton, Osgood 
& Company organized, taking over the inter- 
est of James R. Osgood & Co. and Kurd & 
Houghton, but with the old firm name of H. 
O, Houghton & Company still retained in 
connection with the Riverside Press, which 
was conducted as a cognate enterprise. This 
new firm consisted of Mr. Houghton, Mr. 
Osgood and Mr. Mifflin, and the business was 
conducted at the former headquarters of the 

Osgood house in Boston, the New York store 
of Hurd & Houghton becoming a branch 
office in charge of Mr. Oscar Houghton. Mr. 
Hurd retired on account of ill health, and 
Benjamin K. Ticknor left the consolidation 
and became associated with S. D. Warren & 
Company, the well-known paper house. Two 
years later in the spring of 1880 Mr. Osgood 

withdrew from 
the firm and 
again c o m- 
menced business 
under the old 
name of James 
R. Osgood. & 
Company with 
Colonel John H. 
Ammon as part- 
ner, a short- 
lived firm large- 
ly devoted to 

At this time, 
1880, the now fa- 
mous imprint of 
Houghton Mif- 
flin & Co. ap- 
peared, which has 
stood for forty- 
one years tho in- 
corporated anew 
in 1908 under the 
title Houghton 
Mifflin Company, 
at Which time 
Mr. Mifflin be- 
came president of 
tihe company. The 
new partner with 
Mr. Houghton 
and Mr. Mifflin 
was L a w s o n 
Valentine, a 
business man 
with a genius 
for organization 
and with experience in various journals. A 
member of the book-trade, writing at the 
time of the new organization, said: "Mr. 
Mifflin is an excellent example of a Boston 
boy who believes in work. Coming from an 
old family, he might easily have taken to the 
life of a fashionable dilettante, frequenter of 
clubs and drawing rooms. Instead of that, 
soon after graduating .from Harvard, he 
joined the Riverside Press, and, beginning at 
the beginning, made himself master of all the 
steps and processes of book-making. No 
small part of the tasteful appearance and 
good workmanship of the present products of 
the Press is due to his skill and conscientious 

Undoubtedly Mr. Mifflin's traimng at the 
practical producing end of publishing has 
had a strong influence in continuing and 
developing the high standards of book-mak- 

1 126 

The Publishers' Weekly 

ing which have always been connected with 
this firm, these standards applying not only 
to their established books issued as always 
with great dignity and beauty, but also to 
the aggressive experimentation, such as was 
instanced in the years when he gave such full 
co-operation and backing to Bruce Rogers' 
work in fine typography on the Riverside 
Press Books, which set new standards in 
American typography. 

The new firm of Houghton MifBin & Com- 
pany had been but a few months organized 
before it was ready to move from the old 
Osgopd quarters to that most famous of all 
street addresses connected with American 
publishing, No. 4 Park Street, still the head- 
quarters of the firm, and still having the same 
attractive bookish rooms, looking in one 
direction upon Boston Common and in the 
rear over the old cemetery, with the Boston 
Athenaeum beyond. 

When the new firm was ready to move to 
these new quarters in October, there was 
open house at 4 Park Street, with Thomas 
Hughes of "Tom Brown" fame as guest of 
honor. Nothing can more completely indi- 
cate the high auspices under which the new 
organization came into being than to list 
some of the names of the people who were 
present on that occasion to wish the three 
men success with the new imprint. Longfel- 
low was present, and Holmes, Howells and 
Aldrich, Fields and Whipple of old Boston 
publishing interests'. Bjornson was in this 
country and became an honored guest. Then, 
there were Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, Mrs. A. D. 
T. Whitney, Rose Terry Cooke, Lucy Larcom, 
Sarah Orne Jewetf:, Nora Perry and Mrs. 
Fields. Horace Scudder, who had entered 
the firm of Kurd & Houghton in 1872 at the 
same time Mr. Mifflin had joined, but had 
withdrawn later, as his interests were more 
in writing, was present ; as were Judge Hoar 
and Senator Hoar, Charles Francis Adams 
and Chief Justice Gray. 

Under such auspices the firm of Houghton 
Mifflin Company continued its great inherit- 
ance that had come ;to it from the many firms 
that had gone to make up the new amalga- 
mation. The house which has been built on 
this foundation is one of the great monu- 
ments to publishing vision and ability. 

In an interview given in 1914 Mr. Mifflin, 
speaking of the ideals of his house, said : "I 
count among the "most fortunate experiences 
of my early business training the time that 
brought me into such intimate relations with 
Mr. Houghton, whose native honesty, high 
ideals and steadfastness of purpose were an 
inspiration in the early days and continue 
this day to be a marked influence for our 
staff. I can recall to-day as if it were yes- 
terday the joy that came to me as a youthful 
book lover in the late fifties and early , sixties 
as I hailed the books which appeared with 
the magic imprint 'Printed at the River- 
side Press.' Really well printed books were 
in those days rare. 

"The Riverside Press has endeavored stead- 
fastly to maintain the ideals of its founder. 

From small beginnings the firm came into the 
great publishing heritage which brought un- 
der its imprint great and abiding names : 
Longfellow, Emerson, Hawthorne, Lowell, 
Holmes, Whittier, Aldrich, Bret Harte. The 
{ask since that time has been to build oji 
these sure foundations and to multiply the 
forms and uses to which these writings and 
later ones could be put. This has been done 
thru the agency of several departments, gen- 
eral, educational and subscription, in each 
one of which the governing conditions have 
been carefully studied and met as far as 

"Our catalog, the roots of which extend 
back to 1832, containing those books which 
have endured, could tell of long and arduous 
quests for what seemed best at the time. In 
later years, in the multiplication of new 
books and new methods, the house has been 
trying with the help of many young" and en- 
thusiastic members to maintain the standards 
raised by Mr. Houghton. With the best of 
intentions it has made and is making mis- 
takes enough, but they have been those of 
judgment and not intention. 

"It realizes to-day, more than it ever has 
before, that its best asset is the good will of 
its friends and authors. It is satisfied if 
after earnest efforts it can add a few books 
from year to year to its catalog of permanent 
standard works. But it is only after re- 
peated experiments that time settles what is 
really permanent. Each such addition to its 
catalog rejoices the heart of every genuine 
publisher and is what we are all reaching 
after, perhaps often, to the vision of the out- 
sider, with indifferent results." 

Mr. Mifflin is survived by his wife, Miss 
Jane Appleton Phillips of Salem, whom he 
married in 1877, ,and a son, George H. Mif- 
flin, Jr., who is connected with the firm.. 

To but few men can it be given to com- 
plete so well-rounded a life and so successful 
a business career. With the finest inheritance 
that Boston could give and the training of 
her favored university, he entered energetic- 
ally into a great industry to learn it from 
its fundamentals. Coming into an enterprise 
launched with unusual promise he was an in- 
strument in building it to even nobler pro- 
portions. Himself given early opportunity to 
use his full talents he gave prompt recogni- 
tion to younger men who associated them- 
selves with the firm. Few professions can 
give to their followers so personal and last- 
ing a reward as can publishing- and few men 
received more from and have given more to 
the profession than Mr. Mifflin. 

In Memoriam 

Sixty years ago, when I was in college, the 
Yale librarian, Daniel C Gilman, later 'the 
first president of Johns Hopkins University, 
told our class that when we found a book 
bearing the imprint of Ticknor & Fields, we 
could be .fairly confident that it was a good 
book. That statement gave me a disposition 
to make my living by publishing, and by that 

April 0, 1921 


sort of publishing. The house that was then 
Ticknor & Fields is now the Houghton Mif- 
flin Company, it has always maintained the 
high tradition which was ascribed to it by 
high authority sixty years ago, and the friend 
we have just lost was its head. No higher 
tribute can be paid an American publisher. 

But I can pay a different one equally high. 
The ambition with which the noble example 
of the old house inspired me was second to 
another ambition. I wanted to be an author, 
arid when, in the course of time, I became 
one, after a fashion, what more natural than 
that the noble old house should publish for 
me? Now according to tradition, as an author, 
I should say that my publisher was a Bar- 
rabbas. But on the contrary I can only < say, 
and I delight in doing it, that my publisher 
always was, as he was born, a gentleman. 

He is a great loss to his authors, but he 
passed in the fullness of his years, and the 
old house, with its high traditions, is still 
with us. 


The New York Printing Situation 

THE first hearing on the demand of the Em- 
ploying Printers of New York, Closed Shop 
Section, for a reduction of 25 per cent was 
held on March 28th. The demand asked for 
15 per cent reduction because of the decrease 
in the cost of living" and 10 per cent because of 
the economic condition of the industry. This 
first hearing was held before Professor 
William F. Ogburn, who acted in a like capa- 
city at the proceedings last fall when the in- 
crease was granted. 

This first hearing was held with Pressmen's 
Union No. 51 and Paper Cutters' Union No. 
119. The Pressmen's Union filed a counter- 
claim for an increase of $10 on the present 
scale of $51, and the Paper Cutters' Union 
contended that the present scale of $45 should 
not be reduced. Both sides are submitting re- 
buttal testimony. Three other hearings are up 
for adjustment. The hearings began April 
1st. These are of the Press Feeders' and As- 
sistants' Union No. 23, Job Pressmen and Job 
Press Feeders' Union No. I, and the Paper 
Handlers' Union No. i. There are three 
other Unions that have relations with the 
Employing Printers' Association, but their 
arrangements did not expire on April ist, and 
their readjustment is to be asked on another 

As the figures on the increased cost of liv- 
ing were so strongly recognized in the de- 
cisions last December, it seems only to be ex- 
pected that some recognition of this should be 

obtained by these readjustments. 

Chicago Booksellers Meet 

THE speaker at the Chicago meeting of the 
Chicago Booksellers' , League, held, on the 
evening of April 4th, was F. Guy Davis, 
Manager of the American Newspaper Adver- 
tising Association. His subject was "The 
Newspaper and Book Advertising." The 

special emphasis of the meeting was on get 
acquainted features for the Chicago trade, and 
the dinner was one of the most successful so 
far held. 

A National Emblem 

AN official emblem for the use of all mem- 
bers of the National Association of Sta- 
tioners and Manufacturers has now been 
adopted with the idea that it shall be used on 
letterheads, local advertising, wrappers, sales- 
men's calling cards, etc. It is also to Be re- 
produced as a window transparency. A prize 
of one hundred dollars for the best design was 
offered by President Bauer of the Associa- 
tion, which resulted in the selection of the 
design that is here reproduced. 

The adoption of such an emblem and its 
national use will throw upon the Association a 
still further responsibility for improving and 
standardizing- the quality of the service given 
at stationery stores and probablyjtend to em- 
phasize still further the need of careful train- 
ing for the business, the emphasis on which 
was a decided feature of the last national con- 
vention at St. Louis. 

The adoption of such an emblem was sug- 
gested a few years ago for the Booksellers' 
Association by F. C. H. Gibbons of Spring- 
field, but the plan was not adopted owing to a 
feeling that the display of such an emblem 
would suggest a certain standard of stock and 
efficiency, and that there were no standards 
by which to measure the bookstore. It may 
be that with the improvement in the qualifica- 
tions of all booksellers and in the professional 
pride that is taken in the business, booksellers 
can some clay follow the lead of the stationers 
and adopt an emblem which may apoear on 
th VM>.-IO W ; or over the reference counters in 
^]\ bookshops, and which shall reallv stand 
for a high grade of 'book service. The French 
organization of book publishers has already 
p^opted such an emblem, as was reproduced in< 
the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY of March 26. 

The Publishers' Weekly 

Ashamed of the Movie Version Printing Strike in Boston 

THOSE who have enjoyed a good book 
and afterwards been disappointed in the 
film version will appreciate the recently pub- 
lished letter of William Allen White in reply 
to a Mrs. Stark, who had testified at a hearing 
on censorhip that "The worst picture I ever 
saw in Kansas City was written by a Kansas 
author and called 'In the Heart of a Fool.' " 

"My dear Mrs. Stark: I noticed in the 
newspapers that you said my picture 'In ,the 
Heart of a Fool' was the worst picture you 
ever saw. I quite agree with you. I had noth- 
ing to do with the filming of it. I wrote a 
book which had an entirely different story. 
I sold the movie right of the book to the out- 
fit that made the picture. Under the court 
decision, when I sell the movie right, I .sell 
the right to change the plot. They changed the 
plot and made it a nasty sex thing, and I am 
just as much ashamed of it as you can be, but 
I have no rights in the courts. I thank you 
very much for your frankness in the matter. 
Sincerely yours, 

W. A. WHITE." 

Cleaning Up the Movies 

THE very wide discussion of the present 
condition of the films and the action of 
legislation which is pending in numerous states 
calling for increased censorship has brought 
the question of film cleanliness sharply to the 
front. . The members of the National Associa- 
tion of Moving Picture Industry, representing 
ninety of the principal producers, have an- 
nounced that they have agreed upon "a definite 
and concrete plan which will insure against the 
production of questionable films and will jpre- 
vent, also, the exploitation of pictures m a 
manner censored to good taste." They adopted 
a resolution, calling upon all members to up- 
hold the authorities and to assist in the prose- 
cution of all members who failed to comply 
with the aim of the Association to make the 
screen clean and wholesome. The Authors' 
League, whose members are vitally interested 
in film production, are suggesting that what- 
ever censorship or control there needs to be 
should be on a national basis, as state censor- 
ship leads to needless difficulty and confusion. 
The discussion has probaHy been precipitated 
by the production of "Way Down East" with 
a marked contrast between the film and the 
stage production. 

The New "United States Catalog" 

A PROMISE that the second supplement to 
the "United States Catalog" will be ready 
by August is given out by the H. W. Wilson 
Company, an announcement that will be ex- 
tremely welcome -by all booksellers and libra- 
rians. This supplement starts with January, 
1918, and will cover up to June, 1921. The 
first supplement to the general index, dated 
January, 1912, covers the years 1912-1917. 

A SERIOUS situation preliminary to 
other printing troubks thruout the 
country has broken out in Boston, where the 
printing houses posted bulletins that they 
they would make a reduction of four dollars 
per week in wages, beginning April 4th. The 
Unions immediately struck, including fhe 
compositors, pressmen, feeders, book binders, 
bindery women and electrotypers. It is esti- 
mated that about eighty per-cent of the book 
and job printers are out, including the plants 
at Cambridge and Norwood, as well as those 
at Boston. This includes all the shops that 
are organized in to the Boston Typothetae 
Board of Trade. One estimate is that more 
than twenty-five hundred printing craftsmen 
are involved in this strike, and the workers 
are picketing the shops. 

On Tuesday the Employers' headquarters 
reported that one hundred new men had been 
put to work and that every shop was runniig 
even tho with but a slight force, of non-union 
men or men who tore up their cards. 

While the question of wage precipitated 
the strrke, the question of hours is the more 
persistent subject of discussion. This trouble 
is connected with the countrywide discussion 
of the entering of the general printing busi- 
ness on a forty-four hour basis as of May 1st. 
As has been pointed out in connection with 
discussion in other cities, the national Typothe- 
tae has about five thousand members, about 
two hundred of these operating on a closed 
shop basis. This closed shop group passed a 
resolution at the convention in New York in 
August 1919 in favor of a forty-four hour 
week on May 1st 1921. The Employing 
Printers' Association of New York, Chicago 
and a few shops elsewhere made subsequent 
agreements with the Unions for this ar- 
rangement, believing that the whole country 
was to go on the forty-four hour basis. This 
has, however, not proved so, and at the con- 
vention last year at St. Louis both the open 
and the closed shop sections of the Typothe- 
tae passed resolutions against the forty-four 
hour week. The New York Employing 
Printers' Association closed shop section in- 
tend to stand by their agreement, but have 
opened up a request for a reduction in wage 
of twenty-five per-cent as of April ist. With- 
out this reduction, and in case the men insist 
on keeping both wage and hour agreement, 
the shops in New York are bound to be 
handicapped in competition with the rest of 
the country in a way that the employers de- 
clare will work to the disadvantage of em- 
ployees as well as employers. 

"No home is complete without a library. The 
mind requires food and recreation as well as 
the body. Be as careful in selecting your books 
as you are your food."

Dante Centenary 

THE 6ooth Anniversary of Dante's death 
falls on September 14, 1921, Preparations 
for the commemoration of the event are already 
under way. Houghton Mifflin announces the 
publication of a complete single-volume edition 
of the definitive English prose translation of 
The Divine Comedy" by Charles Eliot Norton. 
This has hitherto been available only in the 
three volume edition. "The Inferno" of Dante 
with text and translation by Eleanor Vinton 
Murray has been issued by the Merrymount 
Press, Boston. The tradition of Dante schol- 
arship in America is long and honorable. The 
New York Times in a book review of Miss 
Murrayls book said: In 1833, a Venetian 
refugee, Lorenzo da Ponte made the proud 
boast that he and he alone had brought Dante 
to America and had instructed 2,500 Amer- 
icans in his language. 

America's contribution to the Florentine 
celebration of the 6opth anniversary of Dante's 
birth in 1865 was in every way worthy. It 
consisted of Norton's monograph on the authen- 
tic portraits of Dante, Botta's "Dante as 
Philosopher, Patriot and Poet," Longfellow's 
"Inferno," and Parsons's translation of the first 
seventeen cantos. Half a century later, of the 
twenty-four complete English .translations of 
the "Comme<$a" four were the work of Am- 
ericans, the last to make its appearance on the 
eve of Italy's declaration of war against her 
traditional enemy being an inspiring rendering: 
in blank verse by Henry Johnson. Nearly 2,000 
(books dealing with Dante had been written by 
Americans and printed on American presses; at 
Cornell University the Willard Fiske collection 
had become one of the greatest in the world; 
the publications of the Dante 'Society of Cam- 
bridge, Mass., had notably led or supplemented 
the most important research and elucidations in 

"How to Make a Good Book 

UNDER the above title L. M. Cross of the 
Vir Publishing Company has issued a 
valuable little booklet which he has sent out 
with the compliments of his firm to a large 
mailing list in the 'book-trade. It is dedicated 
"to the -wisest of all sales people the men and 
women in the business of selling- books." 

Mr. Cross as editor of "Successful Booksell- 
ing'' has done great service to the book-trade 
in bringing it closer together and in circulating 
practical suggestions for display and selling, 
and in this book he has put into concrete form 
a dozen pages of admirable suggestions as to 
the salesman ? s attitude toward his store, care 
and arrangement of stock, the store's general 
atmosphere, handling of ^displays, serving cus- 
tomers, etc. Mr. Cross recommends keeping 
steadily behind the "Buy A Book A Week" 
campaign, and his book is a generous contri- 
bution toward the success of that co-operative 

Boston Book Sellers Active 

AN enthusiastic meeting of the Boston 
Booksellers' Association was held on 
Tuesday, March 29th, and it was suggested 
that a dinner-dance in April should be ar- 
ranged as a final feature of the year. The 
Association will also be actively interested in 
extending hospitality to the "American Li- 
brary Association, which meets at Swamp- 
scott in June. 

The officers for the ensuing year are: 
President, Richard F. Fuller, of the Old Cor~- 
ner Bookstore; Vice-President, H. S. Hutch- 
inson, New Bedford; Second Vice-President, 
Benjamin H. Ticknor, of Houghton Miflflin 
Co.; Treasurer, W. R. Combie, of New Eng- 
land News Co. ; Secretary, Miss~Anna Gross- 
man, formerly of Houghton Mifilin Co.; 
Board of Governors to 1923, Joseph Ryan, of 
Old Corner Bookstore, and Leroy Phillips. 

The Power of a Booklist 

A good booklist has an extraordinary lease 
of life. The famous "Hundred Best 
Books," with which Sir John Lubbock seems 
to have started this idea, has been reprinted 
again and again, sometimes, perhaps, rather 
turning the new reader away from reading 
than drawing him to it. Then there have 
been the "Desert Island Library," and 
Morley's "The Guest Room Bookshelf," and 

Recently the New York Public Library 
printed in its Bulletin a list of the books; 
which they found most generally called for 
in ^the central circulating room. This list, 1 
which was reprinted in the . PUBLISHERS' 
WEEKLY of January 8th, has been turning up 
in literary papers, in news columns and else- 

Recently Wanamaker's New York depart- 
ment reprinted the list, with the suggestion' 
that the books could be bought from their 
stock. The library by this kind of publicity 
helped the good cause of general book distri- 

So Actors Do Read 

IT is always of interest to the book-trade when 
celebrities will pose for the public press 
with books in their hands or books on their 
tables. A March issue of the New York 
Tribune rotogravure section had photographs 
of eight of the most popular actors, on the 
metropolitan stage, each reading his favorite 
book. Grant Mitchell, it seems, favors O. 
Henry; Holbrook Blinn, Rudyard Kipling; 
Ernest Glendinning likes Robert Louis Steven- 
son; Frank Bacon turns to Bret Harte; Alan 
Dinehart prefers Edgar. Allan Pbe; Norman 
Trevor evidently is not tired of the dialog 
form since he seeks his recreation, and has his. 
photograph taken with Arthur Pinero in his 
hand; Jacob Ben- Ami prefers Tolstoi; and 
Rolland Young chooses Max Beerbohm and a 
pipe for his comfort.

A Week's Gleanings of Book-trade News 

"THE WALL" is the second volume in the 
triology begun in "The Mask" by John Cour- 
nos (Doran). 

"SVCERMERE," one of Knut Hamsun's most 
famous novels will be published shortly under 
the name of "Mothwise" by the London branch 
of Gyldendal. 

A LIMITED edition of five hundred copies of 
James Oppenheim's "The Mystic Warrior," the 
story in verse of the struggle between the old 
and new America, is now published by Knopf. 

G. W. DASENT'S "East O' The Sun and West 

O' The Moon" has appeared in most attractive 
new dress, in McKay's Golden Books For Chil- 
dren. The beautiful color illustrations are by 
Edna Cooke. 

A MUSICAL and literary event, is the pub- 
lication of Leopold Auer's "Violin Playing As 
I Teach It," by Stokes. Auer, is unquestion- 
ably the greatest teacher of the violin; Elman, 
Heifetz, Zimbalist, and Seidel are among his 
famous pupils. 

DR. LULU HUNT PETERS has returned to the 
United States after a service of nearly twv> 
years in the Balkans with a Red Cross unit. 
The fifth edition of her "Diet and Health" 
( ! Reilly & Lee) has an additional chapter, 
sketching some of her experiences in Albania. 

THE FIRST night of James Branch Cabell's 
first play was an event in Richmond recently, 
at the Little Theater, when "Belthazar's 
Daughter" dramatized from a tale of mediaeval 
Italy originally published in Harper's Maga- 
zine, was produced. "The Rivet in Grand- 
father's Neck" will be produced in New York 
next winter. 

PAUL B. HOEBER, New York, announces for 
publication in April "The Life and Times of 
Ambroise Pare," by Dr. Francis R. Packard, 
of Philadelphia, editor of the Annals of Med- 
ical History and author of the "History of 
Medicine in the United "States." Ambroise 
Pare (surgeon to Charles IX) was the father 
of modern surgery and was the first to use 
the ligature. In addition to being a surgeon, 
he was a courtier and a statesman. The his- 
tory of Pare's activities gives an excellent 
picture of Renaissance France. It is interest- 
ing to know that the career of Pare as a 
military surgeon takes us over the same 
battlefields that were fought on by the A. E. 
F. in the late war. Not onlv medical men but 
those interested in French history will be in- 
terested in this book. 

HARCOURT, BRACE & Co. will have ready in 
May, a biography of Queen Victoria by Lytton 
Strachey, author of "Eminent Victorians."

his life for the beauty of France." Leading 
French literary men are heading a movement

poetry, is now a novelist. Her first novel, "The 
Husband Test" is on the spring list of the Penn 
Publishing Company, and she is now at work 
upon a second novel.

ton, which Our London Correspondent has 
written us has been a best seller over there, 
has been published in this country by Apple- 

FRANK PACKARD'S new story "Pawned" 
(Doran) carries its readers thru mystery all 
the way from New York to the South Seas 
and back again. 

"NOCTURNE" was the story of a single even- 
ing in the life of a milliner's assistant. "Co- 
quette," Frank Swinnerton's new novel this 
spring is the story of eighteen months in the 
life of a dressmaker's assistant (Doran). 

CONINGSBY DAWSON'S realistic picture of 
what peace 'has done to Europe has the strik- 
ing title "It Might Have Happened To You." 
It takes up the questions: Why is Europe 
Starving? Why Doesn't She Get To Work? 
What Chance Has Revolution? It is pub- 
lished by John Lane. 

MRS. A. M. WILLIAMSON has been in New 
York arranging for the publication of her new 
books. She feels that she has a closer con- 
nection with spiritual things than most people, 
says The Bookman, and that since his death 
Mr. Williamson has constantly aided her work. 
For this reason the books will continue to be 
signed C. N. and A. M. Williamson. 

STOKES has just published a new school and 
acting edition of Alfred Noyes' "Sherwood," 
with directions for production by Milnor 
Dorey. It is adapted for study in English 
Literature classes and as a commencement play 
for schools and colleges. It has textual cuts 
indicated, and directions for production, includ- 
ing staging, lighting, costuming, casting, prop- 
erty lists, stage diagrams, directions for dances

Obituary Notes 

General Manager of the West Publishing 
Company, publishers of law books, died at his 
home in Minneapolis after a long illness on 
April 3rd. He was born in that city in 1855 
and received the Degree of Litt. B. from Cor- 
nell in 1878. For a brief period he helped his 
father edit the Christian Register of Boston 
and then entered the publishing business. He 
was Vice- President of the America Unitarian 

T. ERNEST COMBA, who at one time was 
American agent for John Lane, London, died 
after a brief illness on March 25th at his 
home in Dorset, Vermont, where he had been 
living for some years. 

He was born in England in 1851 and was 
a member of the firm of Truslove, Hanson & 
Comba, London, when he came to America in 
1900 to establish an American branch for his 
firm whose business was mainly French, 
Italian and Spanish books. In time this agency 
was absorbed by the Lane house, Mr. Comba 
becoming its manager for about a year.

Fake Reviewers 

MARCH 30, 1921. 

It may interest the publishers to know that 
some time ago H. D. Frankel of the Pioneer 
Building, St. Paul, asked us to send him copies 
of our publications for review in the St. Paul 
Daily News. We sent several books to him, 
but never received any notice. Later oil the 
Literary Editor, Thomas A. Boyd, wrote ask- 
ing for copies of our publications for review. 
We wrote telling him that we had sent a num- 
ber to H. D. Frankel, and received his reply 
that this man is in no way connected with the 
News, and that to his knowledge has never 
been authorized to review books for the paper. 

He says that we are not the only publishers 
who have been asked for books by Mr. Frankel 
under the impression that they were to be re- 
viewed in the Daily Netvt.

A Children's Week in April 

LEADERS of the children's work in the 
International Sunday School Movement 
are making plans for an observance of an 
international Children's Week, beginning Sun- 
djay, April 24th, and closing Sunday, May ist. 
The leaders in the movement thruout the 
country are working on programs, and by the 
time the Week comes there should be ready 
interesting activities in many directions. 

The task of religious education of the chil- 
dren in the churches and in the home can >be 
finely supported by the book-stores by .estab- 
lishing contact with the church workers. The 
Religious Book Week Committee announce 
that it has left from its large printing of 
posters several hundred that would be avail- 
able for any bookstore which would like to 
take this matter up again on this last week in 
April. These posters bear no date, and so 
would be just a.s useable as in March.

in smaller type. 

The entry is transcribed from title page when the book is sent for record. Prices are added except 
when not supplied by publisher or obtainable only on specific request. When not specified the binding is cloth. 

Imprint date is stated [or best available date, preferably copyright date, in bracket] only when it

A Few Cities Still Open 

We supply the "Book Review" . section of the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY, printed 
separately, with imprint on cover, to one concern only in a city, and it thus becomes 
their "house" organ, as it were, and its circulation is not duplicated by any other 
bookseller in the town. 

A few cities are still open for this service. We shall be pleased to arrange 
now with any responsible dealer for the service beginning September 1921. No 
other booklist for the retail trade is as attractive in format, contents or in its appeal 
to the readers of books. 

Write early and secure the franchise for your city. Tfie cost is as nothing 
compared with its influence in promoting book buying.

Rare Books, Autographs and Prints 

THE April issue of the Century Magazine 
contains "A Book Hunter's Garner," by 
William Harris Arnold, particularly in- 
teresting because of its descriptions of in- 
scribed copies. 

The library of Lincolniana collected by 
Alonzo Rothschild and used in writing 
"Lincoln, Master of Men" and "Honest Abe" 
has been donated in his memory to the Widener 
Library of Harvard University. 

A collection of etchings by John Marin is 
on view at the Weyhe galleries. This is the 
most comprehesive exhibit of Marin's work 
that has been made in this city and traces his 
development from the time when he took up 
etching fifteen years ago up to the last few 

The current catalog of James F. Drake, Inc., 
of this city, is rich in rarities of early and 
modern English literature and includes the sec- 
ond and fourth folios of Shakespeare, and first 
editions of Milton's "Poems," Herrick's "Hes- 
perides," Fitzgerald's translation of the "Ru- 
baiyat," Lowell's "Commemoration Ode," and 
some colored plate books in extraordinarily fine 

A definitive edition of the collected works 
of Oabriele d'Annunzio is now in preparation 
in Rome. It will consist of twenty-one volumes, 
printed from a special font of type on paper 
made for this edition. The decorations and 
illustrations will be executed by De Carolis 
under the author's supervision and every de- 
tail will receive the closest attention with the 
purpose of making the edition "a monument of 
Italian graphic art." 

"An unfamiliar but extremely fascinating 
aspect of book hunting suggests itself in the 
collection of old bookseller's catalogs," says 
The Bookman's Journal. "Pursued systetn- 
matically this hobby presents a field of research 
pregnant with engaging possibilities. Apart 
from more ambitious incentives, its charm con- 
sists largely in the remarkably clear concep- 
tion its pursuit enables us to form of the in- 
tellectual atmosphere which pervaded the cen- 
turies enabling us, as it were, to view litera- 
ture thru a mental stereoscope." 

Rare books and manuscripts selected from 
a half score of consignments will be sold at 
Sotheby's, in London, April 18, 19 and 20. 
The sale includes first editions of Stevenson, 
books illustrated by Kate Greenaway, the first 
four folios of Shakespeare, Shakespeare's 
"Poems," 1640; Milton's "Paradise Lost," 1668; 
Walton's "Angler," 1653; Herrick's "Hesper- 
ides," 1648; a collection of fine old French and 
English bindings and a few illuminated and 
other manuscripts. The catalogs contain 675 
lots among which is a high percentage of gen- 
uinely rare books. 

The fifth in the series of French exhibitions 
in the Stuart Gallery of the New York Public 
Library, .-on vjew during April, illustrates 
"Paris in Prints." The "exhibition shows Paris 
in many aspects and moods. Paris of old (Cal- 

lot) and of to-day of the fine boulevards 
(Buhot) and of the slums (Lepere), along 
the Seine (Bejot) and on the heights of Mont- 
martre (Delatre), arc'hitectually (Lelanne) and 
in the street life of its people (.Buhot), in peace 
and in war (Martial). The whole forms a 
veritable chorus in praise of Paris that the 
print lover cannot afford to miss. 

The 838th Caxton Head catalog, issued by 
James Tregaskis, of London, is remarkable for 
its collection of rarities of the Tudor and early 
Stuart periods together with English litera- 
ture printed abroad during the period 1501-1640, 
including many early printed quarto plays and 
romances and controversial black letter theol- 
ogy. There are also noteworthy specimens 
of foreedge pointings and fine old English 
bindings. Such catalogs effectively illustrate 
the flood of rarities which the last two or three 
years have brought into the market, and the 
prices asked show conclusively that they are 
not unappreciated. 

Books, prints and autograph letters from 
the estate of Dr. Thomas Addis Emmet, of this 
city, will be sold at the American Art Galleries 
April 13. This sale constitutes the last rem- 
nant of the great collection made by Dr. Em- 
'iriet and the items of chief interest are de- 
cidedly personal. Here is an extra-illustrated 
copy of "The Emmet Family," privately 
printed; an extra-illustrated copy, of Emmet's 
"Incidents of My Life," 1912; also "Ireland 
Under British Rule," by the same author, and 
a half score of other books of a personal or 
family nature. When his collection of extra- 
illustrated books was sold years ago these 
were reserved. There are here and there 
other books, autographs and prints of rarity 
and interest. 

Edward Turnbull, of the Walpole Galleries, 
says that the growth in the number of collect- 
ors of Japanese prints in this country in recent 
years has been amazing. When he first began 
selling Japanese prints the attendance was 
small ; now a very ordinary sale frequently 
packs the auction room. Delmonico's hardly 
sufficed to hold the crowd that attended the 
salee of the two French collections that were 
dispersed in January and February. The list 
of names of persons interested in Japanese 
prints kept by the art galleries has probably 
tripled during the last two years and the num- 
ber of persons who attend auctions with the 
intention of buying has probably doubled. 

The details in regard to the sale of early 
English poetry and other literature from the 
Britwell Court Library, the property of S. R. 
Christie-Miller, at Sotheby's in London, March 
10 and n, have now reached this country. Prior 
to the sale the English experts had agreed that 
if this part brought 30,000 it would be doing 
exceptionally well, in fact, few expected that 
it would bring as much. Dr. Rosenbach's live- 
- ly interest in the sale carried the total to 48,- 
15 552 55. In commenting upon Dr. Rosenbach, 
an English bookseller writes: "Dr. Rosenbach 

April 9, 1921 


has made a reputation in England at this sale. 
Of course he was known in a way before, but 
his modest, quiet and decisive way, entirely 
free from offensive assertion, impressed all 
came in contact with him. We do not feel 
badly about his capturing all of the rarities, 
>r he competed in such a sportsmanlike way 
lat we were quite reconciled to his successes, 
te will carry back to America the good wishes 
of all English dealers that had the pleasure of 
meeting him." 

The collection of modern etchings made by 
Herschel V. Jones, of Minneapolis, numbering 
282 lots, was sold at the Anderson Galleries, 
March 2& and 29, bringing $42,555, and prov- 
ing one of the most important print sales of the 
season. There was much doubt as to the suc- 
cess of the sale before it occurred ; it was gen- 
erally considered an unfavorable time for high 
prices, and good prices were necessary, for Mr. 
Jones had paid well for his prints as well as 
for his books. That some of the rare book 
dealers are becoming a formidable factor in 
this field was shown in the competition in this 
sale; in open competition some of the finest 
prints went to them. It is probable that this 
support added largely to the final total, 
making the sale more successful than the most 
optimistic had predicted. Very properly Whist- 
ler's dry point of the reclining girl entitled 
"Weary," distanced all competitors, bringing 
$2,450; it was deserving this distinction, for 
it was one of the most beautiful modern prints 
ever sold in this city. This masterpiece went 
to James F. Drake as did Zorn's "The Toast," 
which brought $2,200, the second highest price. 
Other prints remarkable for their rarity and 
beauty of impression were Millet's "Peasants 
going to Work," which brought $1,500 ; Whist- 
ler's "Lime Burner," $725; and "Nocturne: 
Palaces," $1,900; Zorn's "Zorn and His Wife," 
$2,100; "St. Ives," $1,500; "En Omnibus," $2,- 
ooo; "Ernest Renan," $1,600; "Le Matin," $875; 
and "L'Orage," $905. 

The private library of Matthew Baird, Jr., 
of Philadelphia, consisting mainly of subscrip- 
tion sets of the American, English and French 
authors will be sold at the American Art Gal- 
leries, April 12. The catalog contains 103 lots 
mainly full bound sets, of the golden age of 
subscription bookselling, when money was 
more plentiful than taste. Among many lots 
which the discriminating buyer will care little 
for, there are others like the limited sub- 
scription editions of Burroughs, Emerson, Bret 
Harte, Hawthorne, Holmes, and Stevenson that 
appeal to him. Of the merit of these editions 
there is only one opinion they are among the 
finest in a period of pretentious bookmaking. 
Nearly all the sets in the sale good, bad and 
indifferent are bound in full Levant morocco, 
with elaborate doublures, and decorated with 
gorgeous machine stamped designs. Originally 
costing from $25 to $100 a volume, for years 
they were a -drug in the market and almost 
unsalable at auction, bringing in the neighbor- 
hood of 15 per cent of their cost or less. In 
the last two or three years there has been a 
revival of interest and they have been bring- 

ing more. The Ruppert sale of last year rep- 
resents high 'water and was a decided success 
compared with similar sales of former years.

A New Volume by Leonard Merrick 

A Chair on the Boulevard 


Introduction by A. NEIL LYONS. 

.Do you remember Tricotrin? If so, you know without seeing it that one of the 
twenty stories in this volume is alone worth the price of the whole book. "How Tricotrin 
Saw London" is one of the most deliciously amusing of all the adventures of the young 
poet who provoked your delighted chuckles all through "While Paris Laughed." And 
these stories make a book in some respects even better than that. There is a deft and 
delicate satire in them, a spice of the cynicism which is not bitter, a hint of pathos which 
lifts a story into the realm of poetry, a sound substance under the jesting which makes 
them really and intensely interesting. 

- The New York Times: "More than any other quality perhaps, more even than the 
wit and irony, the sparkle which is as gay and as French as champagne, the exquisite 
style and unfailing deftness of plat, it is his extraordinary ability for making even the 
least important among his characters human beings, that renders Mr. Merrick's short 
stories so very exceptional."

The Most Famous Novelist of This Century 

The Mayflower 

(Flor de Mayo) 

A Story of the Valencian Seashore 

The story sets forth in brilliant colors the life of the crude, coarse fisher folk of 
Valencia in their fish markets, at the launching of a new boat, in the Easter 
,parade, and above all, by or on the sea. The relentless greed of the ocean in 
exacting toll of those who seek their living in its depths is the background of 
the drama of a man's life his ambition, love, success, suspicion and revenge. 
In no other one of his books has Blasco Ibanez put before us such a vivid, 
gripping picture of elemental passion, of human hopes and fears, of triumph 
and disaster. Here this great novelist has touched the high-water mark of 
his power as an artist and an interpreter of life. $2.00 


A brilliant picture of Monte Carlo and of men who woke to the recognition of some- 
thing stronger than the fascination of gaming tables, stronger even than the appeal 
of woman's love. $2.15 


The age-old conflict of art and convention is the crux of a story so rich in color, 
so keen in insight into subtle enduring influences on character, that it could have 
been written only by this master of fiction. $2.15 


An epic of the Mediterranean of which Grant Overton wrote in The Sun: "To all 
suc'h as love blue water this will be one of the great novels of all time." $2.15 


W. D. Howells wrote of this book: "One of the fullest and richest books in modern 
fiction, worthy to rank with the greatest Russian work and beyond anything yet done 
in English." $2.15 

BLOOD AND SAND (Sangre y Arena) 

It is more than a colorful, absorbing sto ry it is the arena itself, the glory, the move- 
ment, the excitement of it as felt by the thousands who flock to the bull-fights, but also 
the other, the sickening side of it, and the subtle influence of its brutality on the 
national character. $2.15 

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse 

has just appeared in. a Metro screen production which eclipses anything heretofore 
attempted. Robert Sherwood in Life declares that "it lifts the silent drama to artistic 
heights never before attained." From the first scene to the last the power of this 
amazing book makes itself felt. It is a book which no one can afford to miss. $2.15

April 16, 1921 

"/ /to/d every man a debtor to his profes- 
sion, 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. 

Fair Play on Both Sides 

DURING the war period, conditions 
were such that recurring increases of 
wages were necessary to keep pace 
with the increased costs of living. The draft- 
ing of active men for war service reduced the 
number of workers in every industry, giving 
those who remained at work a "scarcity- 
value" for their labor, and the demand for 
product in all industries, not least paper an 1 
printing, rose despite the general expansion 
of prices. Under these conditions, labor had 
the upper hand and oftentimes made it a 
whip hand. 

It was difficult at any given time to ad- 
just wages in accurate relation with the 
changing costs of living, but in the printing 
and correlated industries wages for skilled 
labor reached such a level that the employee 
was often netting more than the employer. 
Publishers were unable from the margin be- 
tween increased cost of manufacture and 
book prices, which margin lessened propor- 
tionately if not actually, to increase the sal- 
aries of office forces, which is the chief ele- 
ment of cost in publishing outside of actual 
manufacture, in proportion to their relative 
value compared with other wage earners. 

In addition to increase of wages, advan- 
tage was taken by labor leaders, who did not 
look far into the future, to insist, under guise 
of dealing with "working conditions," upon 
drastic shop regulations and limitations of 
production, which would be suicidal for any 
industry in the long run. In one correlated 
industry labor organization approximated 
closely to soviet rule, as the union, not only 
dictated prices that employers should 
charge, but specified the minimum charge. 

The situation has changed with a rap- 
idity as unprecedented as it was unexpected 
Non-employment has assumed almost alarm- 
ing proportions, and labor has no longer 
scarcity value. The price of commodities 

has tumbled toward ante-war levels, as in- 
dex figures and all other indications show, 
but this is no solution to those who earn no 
wages and have no money to spend. Thru- 
out all industries, from the railroads down, 
demand has lessened and gross earnings 
have decreased, wages fixed on the war 
scale make costs so high that profit has been 
wiped out and expenses cannot be earned. 

The condition of the printing and related 
trades reflects these general conditions. Re- 
strictions which have been made operative 
in the large cities, particularly in New York 
and to somewhat less extent in Chicago, 
have the effect not only of lessening de- 
mand, but of driving work from these cities 
to smaller centers 01 industry, a tendency 
which in the long run would be disastrous 
indeed for city workers. To take a specific 
instance, it is impracticable for one publish- 
ing house which does an enormous amount 
of cloth binding to continue having this 
binding done in New York, unless the wage 
cost here is substantially reduced, and if a 
change is made from New York, it will be 
extremely difficult to get the business back. 

The publishing trade was slowest of all 
in increasing retail prices, nor can prices 
as yet be substantially reduced. In fact, the ' 
business of bookselling is normally rather 
late in responding to changed conditions, 
which, however, it must sooner or later 
meet. Meantime, altho the stimulus of the 
"Year Around Bookselling" campaign and 
other methods of promoting business is hav- 
ing good effect, publishers have reason to 
fear that demand will be lessened, so that 
it will be no longer possible to distribute 
costs over exceptionally large editions. 

There is a not unnatural tendency among 
employers to make the most of changed con- 
ditions and insist that the pendulum shall 
swing to the other extreme. There is a not 
unnatural reluctance on the part of labor, 
especially of labor leaders endeavoring to 
hold their popularity, to accept either lower 
wages or less unreasonable restrictions as 
to hours and work limitations. The result 
is a serious danger of an impasse in more 
than one industry, of acts by employers which 
are virtually lock-outs and strikes by em- 
ployees which are sure, as always in a falling 
market, to end disastrously. 

It is here that the new spirit which has 
grown among employers, if not among em- 
ployees, should show itself to good purpose. 


The Publishers' Weekly 

The extreme course taken by union leaders 
has made the open shop more possible and 
necessary, but the open shop should not be 
made the means of destroying the unions. 
Collective bargaining should not go down in 
the crash and the unions furnish the chief, 
but not the only, means for collective bar- 
gaining. That union leaders should insist, 
as in certain industries, that non-union em- 
ployees should not be represented in col- 
lective bargaining is suicidal to their own 
interests. On the other hand, to put union 
men at disadvantage under the open shop 
system is equally unfair and in the long run 

There must be fair play on both sides and 
an equal willingness to recognize actual con- 
ditions and make friendly terms which will 
promote production and not throttle demand. 
It should be recognized by employers that 
labor has won an advantage which should be 
permanent, that the wage earner is entitled 
to an increasing share of his product, tho not 
so much that there is nothing left for man- 
agement or capital and that reasonable hours 
and working conditions are required by the 
public conscience. This means an advance 
in practical civilization. 

On the other hand, a decrease in wages in 
some proportion to the reduction in the cost 
of living should be accepted without question, 
hours should not be unduly reduced and limi- 
tations should be removed which decrease 
product and prevent the most economical use 
of labor. Operating costs of the railroads, 
for instance, have been so heavily loaded by 
shop restrictions as to require men of three 
separate trades to open up a boiler when a 
locomotive comes into the shop for repairs. 
In the printing trade the multiplicity of 
unions, as of press feeders, paper straighten- 
ers and others, founded on meticulous details, 
has resulted in suppressing that most useful 
worker, the handy man who can turn his 
hand to this or that work needed at the mo- 
ment, instead of standing about idle, while a 
man of another union is doing the particular 
work. The present state of things cannot 
continue if there is to be the increased pro- 
duction necessary to keep pace with the 
times and to give the wage earner his fair 
share of the total product. 

It should be added that there is one policy 
on the side of labor which cannot but pro- 
yoke serious antagonism on the employers' 
side. This is the stolid "stand-pat" or derisive 

"ha ha" method on the part of labor leaders 
of meeting an employer's approach to wage 
and hour discussion. There must be mutual 
concessions made in the mutual interest. 
Agreements should be kept in good faith on 
both sides, but there are agreements which, 
it may be conceded, should be modified. 

For instance, the 44-hour week has been 
recognized by agreement in New York as 
from the approaching first of May. This 
agreement should be kept by the employers, 
unless concession is made. But it will be un- 
fortunate for employees not to make conces- 
sion as to the 44-hour week, as this has not 
been carried thru on a national basis and its 
enforcement in New York and Chicago, un- 
less there are corresponding wage reductions, 
will have the result of losing to the cities, 
perhaps permanently, the work which has 
made them prosperous and of seriously in- 
creasing non-employment and ill conditions 
in the great centers. There is, in fact, dan- 
ger that strikes, on a falling market, as in 
the paper trade, may simply play into the 
hands of speculators who will take advantage 
of non-production to hoard stocks and raise 
prices, and thus again check the industry to 
the continuing disadvantage of both employ- 
ers and employed. 

Only wisdom, patience, forbearance, on 
both sides, can avert serious industrial harm 
thruout the entire community. Let us hope 
that employers as a class may set an example 
which the body of workers in their turn will' 
not be slow to appreciate and follow. 

Serious Manufacturing Condition 

THE binderies in New York are com- 
pletely closed; the printing strike in Bos- 
ton is unsettled; arbitration is proceed- 
ing slowly in New York, but with the dis- 
agreement on hours hanging menacingly in 
the background; the manufacturers of paper 
have demanded a reduction from the unions, 
and a strike is threatened. There has been 
no such serious situation in book production 
since the fall of 1919, and it may be that 
many troubled weeks are ahead. The user of 
paper has to consider whether the strike is 
really to produce a shortage, and the retailer 
of books has to consider whether the binding 
and printing .situation will create a shortage 
there. The book-trade has been obliged to 
steer thru troubled waters in the past two 
years and must now face complications that 
exceed those of any former time. 

April 16, 1921 


The Bindery Situation 

ON Tuesday morning the Employing Book 
Binders of New York posted announce- 
ments in their shops, stating that there- 
after they would not deal directly with the 
Unions with whom they had formerly had 
dealings, the men and women of the book 
binding industry, Unions No. I, u, 22, and 

The immediate cause of this declaration has 
been the calling of a strike in the Knicker- 
bocker Bindery by the labor organization. In 
the Knickerbocker Bindery there had been em- 
ployed a number of women from Bindery 
Women's Union No. 43. Members of this 
Union are not usually at work in book bind- 
eries, but in printing s'hops, and the Labor 
Committee of the Employing Binders has 
never entered into the discussion of their 
wages or agreements, and had a very specific 
agreement with the other Binders' Union that 
they should not be called upon to enter into 
such discussion. This has come about because 
this Women's Union is more primarily con- 
nected with the printing industry, and the em- 
ploying book binders have not wished to com- 
plicate their matters by settling adjustments 
outside of their own sphere. 

The particular group in the Knickerbocker 
Bindery were working at less than their Union 
scale, and their Union leader was unable to 
hold them to the Union methods. In order 
to get these women into line, they asked the 
other Binders' Union to call a strike in the 
Knickerbocker, and, altho such procedure 
would break their agreement with the Em- 
ploying Binders, they proceeded to do this. 
Just before this event, the Employing Binders, 
finding themselves working largely on half 
time and realizing that the scales _ that had 
been adopted in New York made it difficult 
if not impossible for them to compete with 
other cities, 'had presented a written argument 
to the employees that they Would at this time 
consent to a re3uction in wages in order that 
it might be possible to keep the shops some- 
what employed. This argument was presented 
thru the usual channels, but met with prompt 
rebuffal by the Union leaders. In asking this 
reduction in order to meet outside competi- 
tion, the employers were also very conscious 
of other handicaps that they labored under in 
getting economical production. Their agree- 
ment with Union No. 22 restricted the output 
of a stamping machine ner day to 5000, while 
they claim that the machines in their perfected 
shape without this labor restriction could 
easily produce 8000 or 10,000. They also 
claim that in their relations to Union No. I, 
altho there is no direct restriction, they are 
again failing to get reasonably full results 
from the labor employed. This has resulted 
in outside binderies steadily increasing their 
capacity and taking work that should belong 
in New York. 

Feeling that the usual methods of approach 
have brought no results and that book binding 

as a New York industry was at stake, the 
Employing Binders called a meeting on Mon- 
day, April nth, at which time they agreed) 
unanimously to post an announcement, stating 
that it was impossible for them to recognize 
the action of the Unions in the case of the 
Knickerbocker Bindery and that they would 
hereby cease on April I2th to deal with the 
Unions. This organization included practically 
every edition bindery and of two large inde- 
pendent binderies not in the organization one 
was represented and agreed to stand by the 
group and the other agreed to report 

Without knowing the nature of the dis- 
cussion that was to come up, the leading pub- 
lishers of New York had been asked to be 
present at this meeting, and Mr. Brassil, 
Chairman of the Labor Committee, presented 
the statement of the case. After hiring this 
statement and 'hearing the individual action of 
the binders, about Twenty out of the twenty- 
five book publishers present agreed to stand 
by the employers' decision in every way. 

The text of the announcement posted by the 
Employing Bookbinders follows : 

To the Employees, Members of Bookbinders' 
Unions, Nos. i, n, 22 and 119: 

A situation has arisen which compels us to 
change the labor policy of this shop. For 
years all differences between employing book- 
'binders and the above unions have been ad- 
justed across the table in friendly fashion. 
Agreements have been made and kept. No 
outside parties or issues have ever been allowed 
to interfere or to inject their troubles. 

On Tuesday, April 5th, the above unions, 
without notice and for no cause or reason of ' 
their own whatsoever, and in violation of all 
agreements, and existing practices, and in 
breach of good faith, called a strike at the 
plant of the Knickerbocker Bindery, and twen- 
ty-two (22) members of the above unions 
were ordered to stop work. The only reason 
for this strike was that it was done at the 
demand of Miss Murphy's Union. 

It is therefore no longer possible to deal 
with the above unions. In these djays when 
business conditions are bad and the employers 
are doing their utmost to keep their plants go- 
ing, we cannot suffer uncertainty as to whe- 
ther the unions will be loyal and keep faith 
or not. 

It has therefore been decided that 'hereafter 
this shop will not deal with any of the above 
unions. On and after April I2th this bindery 
will be an open shop. All employees are in- 
vited to remain. Terms and conditions of em- 
ployment will on and after April I2th be made 
with each 'employee individually. 

In ordier to give assurance to all employees 
who accept employment in the following plants 
conducted as open shops, we, the undersigned 
employ ing 1 bookbinders of New York City, 
agree to stand 'by all such employees :

A strike of bookbinders in the plants of the 
members of the Employing Bookbinding As- 
sociation followed the employers' notice and 
extended Wednesday to all of the twenty-five 
shops in the organization, causing the halting 
in the forwarding department in these estab- 
lishments of 300,000 books a day. According 
to D. S. Brassil, Chairman of the Employers' 
Labor Committee, 80 per cent of the books 
printed in New York City are bound in plants 
affected by the strike. 

The printing, folding, gathering and sewing 
of the books will be continued, but there will 
be no work on the covers in trimming, cutting 
or stamping. The books in their incomplete 
state will be stored in the plants, pending the 
resumption of the work in the forwarding de- 
partment with men who are willing to work 
under open shop conditions. 

The book 'publishers in New York City, ac- 
cording to Mr. Brassil, have decided to stand 
behind the bindery owners in their fight, and 
will not send their work to other cities. 

Collier's, Scribner's, Harper's, the Methodist 
Book Concern and the American Book Com- 
pany own their own bindery plants and are not 
affected} by the strike, nor are the technical 
magazines and periodicals. 

The printing strike has spread to the book- 
binding industry in Boston, where from 150,000 
to 200,000 books are made every day under 
normal conditions. 

Author Gets Six Cent Verdict 

THE suit of Alleyne Ireland, one time sec- 
retary of the late Joseph Pulitzer, against 
the. Chicago Evening Post, was decided last 
week, the verdict awarded Mr. Ireland being 
for six cents. 

Mr. Ireland sued because a criticism of his 
book, "Joseph Pulitzer : Reminiscences of a 
Secretary," in the Evening Post, referred to 
him as an "anonymous" author, altho he is a 
recognized scientific investigator, and because 
it was stated that Mr. Ireland had drawn upon 
his imagination in writing the book, because no 
man could be so degraded as to submit to the 
experiences he described. 

Printing Arbitration in New York 

WHILE the printers in Boston are still 
on strike and the arbitrators in Balti- 
more have ordered a 10% reduction in 
wage scales, retroactive to March ist, the ar- 
bitration in New York is proceeding step by 
step in the presentation of evidence. This arbi- 
tration in New York does not include all of 
the unions in the printing industry, as two of 
the unions have agreements that can only be 
discussed annually as of October ist. The 
line of argument taken by the unions is that 
in arguing the cost of living the arbitrators 
should take into consideration that the workers 
have not as yet reached what could be reason 
ably termed an American standard of living, 
and that, therefore, no reduction ought to be 
considered until that had been reached. They 
also argue that a contract to open up the scale 
on the question of the cost of living and the 
economic condition of the industry does not 
prohibit the bringing into the argument of the 
general discussion of the preliminary contract 
and the facts on which the rates in that con- 
tract were fixed. The arbitrators are now 
considering whether they will admit to the 
discussion any evidence as to general living 
scales in the industry or whether they will 
consider only the fluctuations that have oc- 
curred in the various index figures of living 
costs. Further discussions will take place at 
a meeting on April 2oth and 22nd. 

Serious Paper Mill Situation 

IT seems not impossible that there may be a 
strike of alPworkers in the paper and pulp 
industry in the United States and Canada on 
May nth. Representatives of the manufactur- 
ers and the unions met last week in New York. 
Demands have been made that the unions must 
accept "a nine hour day, discontinuance of 
over-time, thirty per cent reduction of wage 
scales and allowance for readjustment of these 
scales on notice of either party up to May 
I5th, 1922." These demands by the manufac- 
turers were to go in effect on May nth. The 
union representatives unanimously rejected the 
proposal, and a resolution has been submitted 
to the several unions for approval or rejec- 
tion, with the understanding that if agreements 
are not made between now and the time of the 
expiration of the present agreements, work will 
automatically cease in the mills. 

On April I2th the fortv-sixth annual con- 
vention of the American Paper Pulp Associa- 
tion began session in New York. No specific 
action on the labor situation was taken in the 
opening session.

A Mail Order Book Business 

By Hester A. Van Ardsdale 

4 ( a It OST retail merchants," says J. W. 
I Y I Fisk, "take it for granted that their 

* ^ * trade is limited to business with local 
patrons. As a matter of fact it is entirely 
practicable for the said retailer to extend his 
markets for drawing trade thru the maih. To 
do so requires systematic advertising to inter- 
est possible customers and service that will 
hold the trade after it has been established. It 
takes time to work up a business by mail 
but the field is worth while." 

It is absolutely essential to have definite 
and systematic plans in advertising. These 
methods should be devised by those in charge 
jf the advertising department usually for 
certain respective times and seasons. One 
basic plan in arranging mailing lists is as 
follows : 

First Secure a "Live" mailing list, elimi- 
nating all names that are "Dead." 

Second Obtaining new names. 

Third Classification of the mailing list. 

Fourth Keeping the mailing list up to date. 

Fifth Disposition of the "Dead" list. 

Sixth Working out an energetic book sell- 
ing campaign. 

First A "Live" Mailing List 
In order to eliminate waste of sending cir- 
culars to "Dead" customers the first requi- 
site of an up-to-date mailing list is to ampu- 
tate "Dead" names from the list. The ma- 
jority of such lists are loaded down with a 
high percentage of superfluous "Dead" names 
that s>ap the possibilities of profit from the 
"Live" names. Too much care cannot be devoted 
to the compiling of lists. Money expended in 
circularizing a "Live" list is a wise and profit- 
able investment but when used to circularize 
a list made up on the "slap-dash" method it 
is irretrievably thrown away. The most im- 
portant feature of this list is to include only 
the best prospects, keeping it in shape so 
that it is easy to handle and contains no 
worthless names this is what every advertiser 
is striving for. 

One wholesale concern has found that one 
of the best methods of checking up its mailing 
lists is to secure the co-operation of the re- 
spective postmasters in the different cities and 
towns. Each year this company compiles its 
list by states and cities and sends all the names 
of each city and town to the respective post- 
master of that place and with each list is in- 
cluded a letter, which calls attention to the 
fact that the company plans to do a large 
amount of direct mail advertising during the 
year, and that if the said lists are incorrect it 
will cause mutual trouble to both the post- 
master and the company itself in handling 
dead mail. It points out that a revision of the 
said list will be beneficial all arountf and re- 
quests the postmaster to cross out all "Dead" 
names and to make any necessary corrections 

in the addresses. This plan proved successful 
in one state, where of a thousand post- 
masters all but three complied with their 

Another and more economical way is to 
mail the circulars one-cent postage and the 
words "Postage guaranteed for return." In 
this case all "Dead" or undelivered mail will 
be returned and a "Dead" list automatically 
will be established. 

Second New Names 

The sources from which names of all kinds 
can be obtained can be classified under nine 
headings, namely : 

1. Rating authorities. (This is the most 
accurate and reliable of all sources.) 

2. Directories. (The number of directories, 
other than city and telephone, published in the 
United States annually is appalling. They 
embrace various classes of business and oc- 
cupations and can be secured from publishers 
of trade journals.) 

3. Press Clippings. (The newspapers teem 
with business-getting opportunities if you can 
read between the lines.) 

4. Companies furnishing addresses. (Names 
may be obtained at the cost of five dollars a 

5. Names secured from customers and 
prospects. (Success in this depends entirely 
upon the degree in which you have cultivated 
the friendship of your customers.) 

6. Names secured from non-competitive 
concerns. (Publishers exchange lists of sub- 
scribers with great success.) 

7. Names s-ecured from your salesmen. 
(This includes permanent and steady custom- 
ers and therefore is a most valuable asset to 
a "live" mailing list.) 

8. Names obtained from persons you meet. 
(Many men are always willing to impart in- 
formation in this connection.) 

9. Miscellaneous methods of securing 
names. (One method, under this heading, 
successfully used by many firms, is to adver- 
tise in local newspapers for persons to compile 
lists of names. Cashiers, bookkeepers* school 
teachers, postmasters, etc., etc., can often be 
induced to undertake work of this nature. 

Third Classification of Mailing List 

The most efficient method of keeping lists 
is by the card index system. The card index 
has a greater flexibility than any other method 
in existence. Names can be classified in any 
one of a dozen or more ways alphabetically 
by states, by territories, by lines of business, 
by rating or purchasing power. Any or all 
of these classifications may be utilized with one 
list of names. 

The tab card system is made by means of 
tabs projecting from the upper edge of the 
card. These tabs indicate some special item 

The Publishers Weekly 

of .information and their use permits a double 
system of indexing for each card. For ex- 
ample an ordinary card may be made out 
for each regular steady customer and a tab 
card for each prospective customer when the 
prospective becomes a regular customer, the 
tab may be removed. 

The tabs may also be applied to the cards 
inverted and in various colors, each respective 
color indicating the classes of books in which 
the customer may be interested. One card 
may have as many as three different tabs at- 
tached a red tab signifying business books, a 
blue tab for art books and a green for fiction. 
All these tab cards may be filed alphabetically 
and the tabs will indicate the details without 
necessitating consulting the cards themselves. 

Another system of classification is the signal 
card system, which consists of different col- 
ored metal indicators to be used in place of 
the tabs described above. After the informa- 
tion has been entered on the cards a little 
metal indicator or signal is slipped over the 
cards. This system would be very valuable in 
classifying the stencils. TJie stencils covering 
a certain class of buyers could be taken from 
the files, bearing their respective classification. 
The addressograph machine has an attachment 
which classifies tabbed stencils automatically. 

There are three classifications of the mailing 
list, the first being as follows: 

1. Library customers. 

2. Most prominent American Libraries (not 
regular customers.) 

3. Regular customers. (Monthly mailing 

4. Business men. 

5. Buyers of sets. 

6. Buyers of art books. 

The second classification may be divided into 
three parts as follows: 

1. Prospects (those known to be interested 
but not regular customers.) 

2. Irregular customers (those who buy also 
from other stores.) 

3. Regular customers (those who buy solely 
from us.) In connection with this classifica- 
tion the cards may be tabbed in three various 
colors and filed alphabetically and on these 
cards should also be kept a record of each 
respective customer's purchases. This is in- 
valuable in classifying and following up. 

The third classification requires innumerable 
colors, as follows : 

1. Fiction. 

2. History. 

3. Art. 

4. Business. 

5. Sports. 

6. Music. 

7. Medicine. 

8. Law. 

9. Politics. 

10. Sociology. 

11. Psychology. 

12. Philosophy. 

13. Economics. 

14. Socialism. 

15. Theology. 
Etc., etc., etc. 

Fourth Keeping the Mailing List Up-to-Date 

Investigation demonstrates that those who 
have occasion to use such mailing lists realize 
the rapidity with which any list of names 
usually changes. This is especially true of 
the lists of dealers and consumers. "After a 
list is twelve months old it ceases to be profit- 
able," says a sales manager. "Repeated tests 
have shown that it d,oes not pay to mail a list 
that has not been checked up within a year." 
A certain firm uses the correspondence file for 
its mailing list to make sure that the list is 

There are two methods of keeping- lists 

1. By testing the responsiveness of pros- 
pects before scheduling them for the regular 
list. (Before sending expensive catalogs a 
circular letter exploiting the catalog should be 
sent out and a self-addressed postal card en- 
closed for the prospect to fill out and mail.) 

2. By checking the lists without directly ap- 
pealing to the prospects by sending them to 
Postmasters and other officials, as explained in 
detail in Section First (A "live" mailing list.) 

Some firms srovern themselves in this case 
by the following rules : 

1. Keep your mailing lists corrected daily. 

2. At least twice a year have the lists thoro- 
ly revised. 

3. Write a form letter with a personal 
touch to customers who have not placed an 
order for over a year. A letter of this type 
should read as follows : 

"You did not buy from us last season. We 
missed you. Frankly this letter is an effort 
to recover your business and we should wel- 
come any relevant suggestion or criticism in 
this connection which might result to our mu- 
tual benefit." etc., etc. 

Fifth Disposition of the "Dead" List 

"No matter how meritorious a proposition, 
there will always be a certain percentage of 
inquiries that fail to yield results promptly. 
But nevertheless such cases are by no means 
hopeless for even the "deadest" of all "Dead" 
lists may be resurrected and made to yield a 
surprisingly large number of orders if circu- 
larized persistently with a follow-up letter 
based on a line of thought different from that 
used in the original letter. Failure to turn in- 
quiries into orders does not mean that the said 
inquiries have been wasted but it generally 
means that the right appeal has not been used 
in the first instance. The percentage of re- 
turns from these first circulars is estimated at 
a minimum of five to a maximum of ten per 
cent. Persistence, never letting up on a pros- 
pect, is the basic principle of success in selling 
by mail." (The above facts are given by 
William G. Clifford in his "Building Your 
Business by Mail.") 

Sixth Book Selling Campaign 

In staging a bookselling campaign there are 
two factors of equal importance to be con- 
sidered : 

April 16, 1921 


First: A list of "Live" names. 

Second : An effective quality of circulars. 

Too much emphasis cannot be placed on the 
importance of labor-saving devices in the of- 
fice, which aid materially in increasing produc- 
tion without any increase of cost. One of the 
most essential of these devices is a duplicating 
machine, and another is an addressograph, a 
stamping machine and also an envelope sealer. 
For instance the addressograph alone will pro- 
duce in one day the same quantity of work for 
which a typewriter would require a week. 
Efficiency is defined as "the elimination of 
waste" and therefore, devices of this character 
are practical illustrations of the highest form 
of efficiency. 

A bookselling campaign in a certain Euro- 
pean country is conducted as follows : 

Every bookseller maintains a compiled list 
of his customers, classified under the subjects 
in which they are interested. When a new book 
is published on a medical topic the bookseller 
sends a copy on approval to every specialist 
on that particular subject on his list. In cases 
where booksellers do not care to send books 
out on approval, owing to the possibility of 
their becoming soiled and unsalable they issue 
circulars and either sell by mail or invite pros- 
pects to inspect the book at the store. Arrange- 
ments are also made with newsdealers where- 
by copies of these circulars are folded in the 
copies of the issues of the daily papers and 
are thus given an additional circulation and 

William G. Clifford, in his book which I have 

hereinbefore referred to says : "A circular- 
izing campaign pays and pays big, as is shown 
by the experience of a bookstore in Rochester, 
N. Y. This store ordered on approval two 
dozen copies of a new book. A large circular- 
izing campaign was immediately aimed at the 
class of persons likely to be interested in the 
book. Inside of two weeks, cash-in-advance 
orders were received for over five hundred 
copies of the book. To paraphrase Shake- 
speare 'The List's the thing.' Once get a 
good list, keep it up-to-date and the store has 
a force for profitable business that needs only 
the magic touch of written salesmanship and 
persistence of effort to make it keep the cash 
register ringing all day like a peal of bells."

On Editing a Bookshop Window 

By Frederick D. Hartman 

Chapman's Bookshop, Montreal 

THE object of dressing a window in a 
bookshop is to stimulate sales of books. 
The general public to whom the appeal 
must be made may be classified as follows: 

1. Bibliophiles' those who are devoted to 
books and would come into bookstores regard- 
less of the appeal of any advertising. 

2. Those who never read books and con- 
sequently never buy books. 

3. Those who occasionally buy a book, but 
do not want to buy a poor one. These as a 
rule never read book reviews, unless by chance 
printed in with general news in a newspaper. 

The percentage of each of these groups 
which pass a given window varies of course 
with the locality of the shop and must be esti- 
mated by each dealer for himself. In general 
the greatest latent source of profit lies in the 
third class. 

If a shop is managed by a litterateur he is 
quite apt to devote all his energy to appeal- 
ing to the first class of people the biblio- 
philes. He will sell and advertise well those 
books which he himself enjoys and not 
exert enough effort to advertfse and sell books 
for members of class three those who have 
to be shown why they should buy a certain 
book and who after having been sold a few 

books which they enjoy will readily become 
regular purchasers. This bookish dealer will 
too often exert himself to persuade a cus- 
tomer (who is going to buy some book any- 
way) to buy one definite title, the dealer's 

On the other hand the opposite type of 
dealer the merchandiser will devote too 
much -energy selling or trying to sell members 
of class two the people who almost never 
buy a book and don't read the occasional one 
they have been persuaded to buy. 

I have outlined these two types of dealers to 
facilitate correcting and guarding against their 
faults as they would be reflected thru the win- 
dow dressing. 

To appeal to class one, copies of standard 
works, rare editions and all works of literary 
value may be carelessly laid out. 'It is well to 
display the title page of many of the books. 
Even tho more than one copy of a book may 
be on hand it is better to exhibit one copy 
only, for the book will be thus much more 
seductive to the booklover. 

To appeal to class two the merchandiser may 
arrange large stacks of books he wishes 
to push, in various regular designs. The 
jackets are useful for decorating the back- 

The Publishers Weekly 

ground. It is quite easy to arrange a stock 
of books in some striking design which will 
arrest the attention of the passer-by, tho the 
writer is skeptical regarding the permanent 
sales building derived as a result of startling 
configurations formed from books. 

Class three, and herein lies surely the great- 
est latent source of profit to the dealer, may 
be reached by neat displays not too many 
titles at a time of popular novels and essays, 
poems and technical books. Reviews should 
be followed carefully, and some pungent phrase 
or sentence quoted on a card connected up 
with a few copies of the book in question. Or, 
the quotation can be pasted against the glass 
with a streamer attached to it directed to the 
books. It is very advisable to get reviews, in 
brief, of books from local people (clergy, 
school teachers, etc.) and dipslay them in the 
window prominently showing the name of the 

The bookdealer should put as much care into 
"editing" his window as the newspaper editor 

in his review page, and results will soon show 
what the right number of reviews per win- 
dow is. 

Interest can be aroused by showing notices 
of the following sort ajl of which are readily 

1. Pictures of authors. 

2. Biographical notes of authors, illus- 
trators, etc. 

3. Reports of large editions. 

4. Changes in paper market. 

5. "Best sellers" in big book centers. 

6. Titles of books reviewed in various 
books and journals. (Kept on file for con- 
venience of customers.) 

It is very advisable to keep a careful record 
of window displays with results obtained, in 
short a bookseller can find as much interest 
in his window as if he were editing a book 
page or review column in a paper. Nothing 
is so infectious as "Bibliophilia" nor so profit- 
able to the dealer. 

Adventures of a Bookseller 

By Ketch 

MISS Limousine was quite put out. She 
had spent fully an hour looking about the 
market and nothing seemed to look good, 
inviting, appetizing. True, she had bought 
some celery and> apples and oranges for a fruit 
salad, and also had selected the meat for 
Sunday; but the process had been merely a 
matter of habit the usual zest of the affair 
was lacking. She gave it up at last, and com- 
ing out to her car, said to the chauffeur in a 
toneless voice, 

"To the Bookstore now, James." 

Mr. Ondeck stood looking at a new book 
which had just come to hand, and of which 
he had just taken one hundred copies from the 
book-truck to put in stock. His face regis- 
tered dismay and astonishment, and he said to 
Miss Vampet, 

"What do you know about this! One hun- 
dred copies of the 'Journal of a Distracted Old 
Maid' and we won't sell ten. What in the 
world could Mr. Bigboss be thinking of to 
order such a quantity?" 

Miss Vampet looked over the book. 

"It's a lemon, all right," she said. "Ask him 
about it. Maybe there was a mistake in the 

Ondeck took a copy with him and ascended 
the stairs to Mr. Bigboss' desk, where he 
pulled up a chair, and in some embarrassment 

"One hundred of these came in this morn- 
ing, and Miss Vampet and I were wondering 
if there may not have been some mistake." 


"Yes. We'll hardly sell ten, Mr. Bigboss." 

"Have you read it?" inquired Mr. Bigboss. 

"I looked if over, and it appears to be. pretty 
much of a lemon." 

"Exactly," and Mr. Bigboss leaned back in 

his chair. "It is a lemon. But that's the point, 
Ondeck ; lemons have their use, you know." 


"You see, it's like this : The process of 
reading is not unlike the process of eating 
there is an Intellectual palate as well as a 
physical, and a balanced diet in reading is just 
as important as a balanced diet of food. And 
that is where this book has its value. It is 
tart; in places it is bitter; therefore it is an 
excellent antidote for a mental bilious attack. 
It ought to have a splendid sale. Should go 
big. You don't need to display it; put it un- 
der the fiction counter, and when you find a 
customer who is fed up on sweet stories, offer 

"I see," said Ondeck. "A lemonade, as 

Mr. Bigboss laughed. 

"Exactly," said he. 

Miss Limousine alighted from the car, and 
approached the Bookstore with exactly the 
same sentiments as when she entered the mar- 
ket. She wanted something to read but what? 
She looked over the fiction counter, and was 
positively nauseated by the display there. She 
passed on to the poetry table, but a collection 
of free verse badly done rendered her soul 
quite unpoetic. Mr. Ondeck joined her at the 
Essay table and said, 

"Good morning, Miss Limousine. Have you 
found something?" 

"No," she replied, "And 'I don't think I 

"Oh." He looked shrewdly at her, then said, 
"Have you read the new Walpole yet? Splen- 
did thing and going " 

"I know. Greatest book of the year, and all 
that sort of thing. But that's just what I 
want to get away from." 

April 16, 1921 


Mr. Ondeck, who was acquainted with her 
general taste, got out several novels and 
placed them before her, but she pushed them 
aside after an indifferent inspection, saying, 

"No doubt they're good, but that isn't the 
sort of thing I want today." 

She strolled over to the general literature 
table and languidly paged thru book after 
book, but nothing seemed to take her fancy. 

"Well, I did want something for over Sun- 
day ; but I don't seem to find anything." 

'"'By the way," said Mr. Ondeck, "Do you 
like grape-fruit?" 

"Grape-fruit?" safd she,' surprised at the 
question. "Yes. Yes, indeed." 

"Ah ! Then I have the very book !" 

He lost no time getting out the "Journal of 
a Distracted Old Maid" and placed it before 

"There," said he, "is a book that you will 
like. Tart sort of a thing really quite sour 
in its tone, but ' 

"Why !" exclaimed 'his customer, ' This does 
look good." She paged thru it a moment, 
then with sudden decision, "I'll take it." 


He wrapped it up and the good lady walked 
down the store with a lighter step than that 
which had brought her in. As she prepared 
to enter her car, she said, 

"Back to market, James. I want to get 
some grape-fruit." 

MacDowell Colony League 

A GROUP of authors and writers is organ- 
izing the MacDowell Colony League to 
work for the $200,000 endowment of the 
writers' summer settlement and work place at 
Peterborough, N. H. 

The settlement was originated by Edward 
MacDowell, the musician, who composed many 
of his best works there and who decided that 
the environment was ideal for workers in the 
creative arts. After his death his wife and 
other artists continued the development of the 
camp, and last summer about forty writers 
and artists worked there. 

Every person admitted to the colony has to 
show that he has a record of achievement and 
loiterers are not permitted to stay. The fee is 
$10 a week, which entitles the resident to the 
use of a studio, quarters and meals. There 
are fifteen studios at the colony, 500 acres of 
farm and forest land^ four dwelling houses 
and a large colony house. The camp is open 
from about June i to Oct. 15, and is called 
an "inspirational workshop." 

Some of those who are interested in the 
movement to make the colony financially in- 
dependent are Edwin Arlington Robinson, 
Hamlm Garland, Ernest Peixotto, Henry Holt, 
Mrs. John W. Alexander, Professor Geon'x- P. 
Baker of Harvard, Robert H. Davis, Don Mar- 
quis, Kate S. Chittenden, Oscar Saenger, Her- 
bert Adams, Josephine Preston Peabody, Sig- 
i'mund 'Stojowski, Joseph Regneas and Edward 
Burlingame Hill. 

The Prize Review 

[Selected from nearly t^vo hundred manuscripts 
submitted for the $100 prise offered fry the Macmilla-n 
Company for the best rhymed review of H. G. 
Wells's "The Outline of History." The judges were 
Arthur B. Maurice, Marguerite Wilkinson, and Hey- 
wood Broun.} 

Deep in the blank abyss of time, 
When Earth was only cooling lava, 
Life raisecj from intertidal slime 
Frail beings, glutinous as guava, 
W'hich, forming skeletons and gizzards 
By complication of their cells, 
Brought on the age of Giant Lizards 
Whose sage historian is Wells. 

He reads the Record of the Rocks. 
We see the clan of Brontosauri 
Succumb to strange climatic shocks 
While mammals guin their vanished glory, 
Till, ferreting this fossil lore, 
Where trees and caves afford defences, 
We meet our first progenitor, 
Sub-man Homo Heidelbergensis. 

Then come Cro-Magnards, chipping bone, 
Treating their sub-man cousins rudely, 
They painted quaint designs on stone 
And fashioned weapons far from crudely, 
They caught the trick of iron smelting, 
Sowed corn, and, when their crops increased, 
Built huts to 'scape the tempest's pelting, 
And pledged Their faith to kings or priests. 

Migrations breed divergent races, 
Mongol and Mediterranean, 
Nordic and Alpine, Alien faces 
Rouse tribal enmities in man. 
Great dynasties arise, Sumeria, 
Egypt, Chaldea, banish peace, 
Persians and Medes assail Assyria, 
And Xerxes leads his hosts to Greece. 

The over-rated Alexander 
Triumphs, and tastes a drunkard's doom. 
Rome looms. Her empire waxes grander, 
Then sinks in mediaeval gloom. 
Charlemagne, Islam, Ganghis Khan, 
Before our wondering eyes are shown, 
Till dwarfish-souled Napoleon 
Ushers this latest age, our own. 

Nor is it thrones and empires merely 
That on this crowded canvas shine, 
Prophets and saints are drawn as clearly, 
And codes that men have deemed divine, 
Creeps of Confucius and Gautama, 
Jesus, Mohammed, Lao Tse, 
Owen, and Marx, and all the drama 
Of travailing humanity. 

Transcendent book! It dares to state, 
When all the world is darkly groping 
Thru baneful fumes of greed and hate, 
That there is still a chance for hoping. 
If life's a race where education 
'Strives with disaster, as he tells, 
Millions will here achieve salvation 
And say with me, "Thank God for Wells! 


The Publishers' Weekly 

Canadian Publishers Meet 

nPHE Canadian publishers who are organized 
1 as a section of the Toronto Board of 
Trade, with John McClelland of McClel- 
land & Stewart as Chairman, held a special 
meeting and dinner on April 8th at the Na- 
tional Club in Toronto to discuss ways and 
means of increasing book distribution in 
Canada, adding to the general health of the 
industry thruout the Dominion. At this meet- 
ing about twenty-five publishers were gathered, 
and addresses were made by J. Murray Gibbon, 
President of the newly organized Canadian 
Authors' Association, and by Frederic G. 
Melcher, of New York. 

Mr. 'Gibbon developed in his talk the great 
possibility of co-operative work between au- 
thors and publishers and their common interest 
in bookselling. As general publicity agent for 
the 'Canadian Pacific Railway, he has an ex- 
tremely broad view of the whole situation and 
a fine instinct for the practical. As the new 
Canadian Authors' Association is to have nine 
different branches in different cities of the 
Dominion from Halifax to Vancouver, the 
organization will be able greatly to encourage 
the subject of book reading and ownership 
thru general discussion and publicity. Very 
practical suggestions were made for obtaining 
better display of books in various outlets, and 
Mr. Gibbon's suggestion of a Canadian Book 
Week to be held in the fall was received with 
great enthusiasm and the plan unanimously 
adopted for carrying out. Tnis plan would be 
that a week should be set aside for the dis- 
play and encouragement of Canadian authors 
and their books during November, having 
especially in mind the encouragement of the 
purchasing of these books for mailing over- 
seas, and to distant friends, in order that they 
could better understand Canada and her 

Mr. Melcher had been invited to Toronto as 
guest of the Association to tell of the experi- 
ence in the States in encouraging book dis- 
tribution thru such campaigns as Children's 
Book Week, Year Round Bookselling, and 
Religious Book Week. A complete display of 
the material that had been used was passed 
around. The publishers are especially inter- 
ested in the idea of co-operation, and expect 
to form committees to adapt these plans to 
the Canadian situation. 

The book situation in Canada seems to be 
similar to that in the United States 'in that the 
interest in books is increasing, and, while con- 
ditions are extremely puzzling and manufac- 
turing costs and exchange fluctuation are a 
decided 'handicap, there is a universal feeling 
of confidence in the-, growth of the industry 
that lies just ahead, and the meeting was en- 
thusiastic in its resolution to keep closely or- 
ganized and aggressively active, in order that 
the industry, both publishing and retail, should 
steadily advance. 

Findlay I. Weaver, the Secretary and Treas- 
urer of the newly organized retailers' organ- 

ization of Canada, presented the case of the 
retailers and promised to give all of these plans 
the heartv support of that branch of the trade. 

An Appreciation of Mr. Mifflin 

IN the death of George H. Mifflin, we have 
lost from among us one of the most cheerful 
and courageous gentlemen our craft has had. 
My realization of these qualities of his was 
renewed by a letter from him, dated March 
22nd, which reached me only a few days 
before he died. In this letter, with his usual 
kindness, he expressed his interest in the affairs 
of an old friend, and showed a cheerfulness 
which was always characteristic of him. As 
as indication, I may perhaps quote a para- 
graph. He says: 

"I continue about the same, still practically 
n. g. Haven't been downstairs for several 
weeks, but I manage to dig out a fairly good 
time." And he adds : "Keep well and happy, 
and the Lord be with you." 

This was the spirit of helpfulness and cheer- 
fulness in which his life was lived, showing 
an interest and enthusiasm for everything that 
came within his influence. 

I should like to tell you, at the risk of being 
somewhat personal, of an experience I had 
with him more than ten years ago. When he 
heard that Doubleday, Page & Co. planned to 
move out of New York and build a building 
for their own printing and publishing, he wrote 
to me and said that when we had our plans 
ready, he would like to go over them with me, 
as he had some ideas about the building of a 
printing plant which he thought might be use- 
ful to me. When the plans were ready I took 
them to him, and he studied them with the 
greatest care and made many valuable . and 
helpful suggestions. Further than this, he 
offered to come and see the work as it prog- 
ressed, and he made at least two journeys from 
Boston solely to give such disinterested help. 
Such was his kindly and beautiful unselfish- 
ness to a competitor. 

For many years I have taken my troubles 
and my ambitions and talked them over with 
him, always being received with a kindness that 
was beyond parallel in my experience. He 
would devote any amount of time to making 
suggestions and studying plans; and if he did| 
this with me, he must have done it with many 
others, because I was not in the way of meet- 
ing him very often, as we lived so far apart. 

I think our craft of publishing has lost one 
of its most interesting and unique figures, as 
well as one of ifs most lovable, in the death 
of Mr. Mifflin. I hope and believe that his 
spirit and his high conception of a publisher's 
duties will live for a very long time, and I 
know that the grief that I feel must be dupli- 
cated in the hearts of a very large number of 
people to whom he had shown the finest sort 
of friendship and loyalty.

Dorian Hope Verse Withdrawn 

THE little volume of verse, entitled 
"Pearls and Pomegranates," recently pub- 
lished by G. P. Putnam's Sons as the work 
of ''Dorian Hope," has been withdrawn from 
the market by the publishers, who discovered 
that the volume contained enough plagiarism 
to warrant the belief that it was wholly 

The publishers accepted the verses for pub- 
lication in good faith when they were ap- 
proached in the matter by one of their sales- 
men, Bret Holland, who claimed authorship 
of the poems. Holland put up $500 required 
to produce the first edition of about 700 vol- 

Holland had dedicated the volume to Flo- 
rence Earle Coates, whom he very much ad- 
mired. She says that he assumed the name 
of Dorian Hope because of his admiration 
for Oscar Wilde and his character of Dorian 

A review of "Pearls and Pomegranates" 
which appeared in the Times Book Review 
with a selected poem, caught the attention of 
the real author of twenty-six poems included 
in the volume, Miriam Vedder. She immedi- 
ately recognized this poem, "Paths," as one 
of her own that had appeared in the Welles- 
ly Rcvieiv in 1918 when she was a student in 
that institution. Miss Vedlder also recognized 
among the poems included in the book half a 
dozen written by Augustin Lardy, one oj her 
friends, who died about a year ago. _ She and 
Mr. Lardy used to exchange the things they 
wrote. She never signed the verses she sent 
him, for she had no idea that they would ever 
pass out of his hands. And so, of course, 
when Holland fountf them, he supposed that 
they were Mr. Lardy's. 

Further inquiries disclosed that the poems 
were taken to G. P. Putnam's Sons by the 
mother of the late Mr. Lardy and offered for 
publication. It happened that she talked the 
matter over with Holland, who assured her 
that he would arrange for the publication of 
her son's poems. 

About two weeks before the books were off 
the press Holland or "Dorian Hope," several 
times telephoned to the publishing' house and 
made various excuses for being absent. He 
never did show up. The latest information 
the publishers have as to his whereabouts in- 
dicates that he is either in Rome, Petrograd 
or Moscow. 

Women's Book Association 

THE general topic of the meeting of the 
Women's National Book Association, which 
is to be held at the Children's Book S'hop next 
Thursday evening, is: "How a Woman Can 
Finance Her Own Business." There will be 
three interesting speakers, Mrs. Estelle Guille- 
not, of the Woman's Security Corporation, 
Miss Lena M. Phillips, Executive Secretary of 
the National Federation of the League of 
Business and Professional Women, and Miss 

Marie W. Snow, vice-president of the League 
of Business and Professional Women of New 

At this meeting final details of the costume 
dance which is to be given the first night of 
the American Booksellers' Convention at the 
Hotel Traymore, Atlantic City, on May loth, 
will be discussed. There will be prizes award- 
ed for the most original costumes, $50 in cash, 
to be dividied among two men and two women, 
the decisions as to the most original to be made 
by ballot. 


On to Atlantic City! 

ON April 15th, the Publicity Committee will 
mail the members of the book-trade a 
booklet giving full and detailed information 
about the convention. This booklet will not 
only tell how to secure the reductions in rail- 
road rates, but it will give a complete resume 
of the convention activities. Whitney Darrow, 
of Scribner's, and Cedric R. Crowell, of 
Doubleday, Page & Co.^ have outlined in its 
pages the social and business program of the 
convention, and answered all the where s, 
whens, and hows, that inevitably arise on such 
occasions. Extra copies of this booklet may 
be secured from any of the committee chair- 

At the ball on Tuesday evening, everyone is 
requested to appear in costume, altho those 
who can furnish good alibis for coming in 
everyday dress will not be barred. The com- 
mittee does not want guests kept away from 
this dance either because they do not care to 
go in costume or are unable to secure what 
they want. 'Costumes selected should repre- 
sent a book title or some character in a. book, 
and prizes will be awarded for the most 
striking and original costume, two for the men 
and two for the women. 

Wednesday evening, we can look forward 
with anticipation to Robert Anderson's great 
American drama of the book-trade. Two re- 
hearsals of this play have already been held, 
and eminent critics pronounce it superior to 
any Cohan-Golden stage production. It will 
be performed on a genuine, honest-to-goodness 
stage, with specially prepared scenery and a 
magnificent cast. The performance will be 
held in the world famous steel-pier ballroom. 
Admission is to be by ticket, but these tickets 
will be distributed by the convention secre- 
taries. Everyone can have as many of these 
tickets as he or she needs. 

Thursday, as the climax of an epochal con- 
vention, comes the banquet. We are assured 
that the gastronomic and scenic effects of th 
evening will suggest that beloved song, "The 
End of a Perfect Day." By all means, then, 
attend the banquet a unique and sumptuous 
affair in the submarine grill of the Hotel 
Traymore, engineered by Whitney Darrow, 
that "Machiavelli" of entertainers, who has 
toiled many weary hours in arranging for these 
convention joys. The banquet will provide a 
thoroly fitting conclusion to the 1921 con- 


The Publishers' Weekly 

Suggestions for Improving Busi- 
ness Conditions 

NOW is the time for every business man, no 
matter what his line of business or his posi- 
tion may be, to use his resources, financial, 
moral,, mental and physical, to the limit. 

To move business today, more than the ordi- 
nary and average energy is required. If you 
are "dragging," rise up and shift your gears 
into "high." 

Some business men have been, and are now, 
putting forth their best efforts to stimulate 
trade to strengthen the confidence of the buyer. 
These men are not feeling a laxity of business. 
Their shops show evidence of normal trade. 
Their plants are running full time and their 
salesmen are sending in orders. 

Why not study their methods ? Acquaint 
yourself with the force they are using to over- 
come a dull period. Probably a complete re- 
organization is necessary. Maybe your adver- 
tising is lacking in force or misdirected. 

Are your clerks particularly courteous and 
striving to give better service? Your customers 
may be kept unnecessarily long in making tele- 
phone connections with the proper party. The 
voice at the other end may not think you are 
glad to receive the call by some discourteous 
grunts from some one in your office or factory. 

Tune up your correspondence. Cut out the 
hackneyed phrases. Make your letters sound 

Finally, get everybody on the job, including 

If you run a small store, change your win- 
dow decorations. See what line of foodstuffs, 
hats, clothing, auto accessories, hardware, 
drugs, etc., are being extensively advertised, 
then back up your window display with the 

Above all, give your customer a square deal 
and make him feel and know that you have 
treated him right. A little profit is better than 
none. A few customers paying a fair profit is 
more profitable than no patronage with goods 
marked at war prices. 

Do not hesitate to make use of some of these 
suggestions, especially if you want business to 
improve. It's up to you. 

A Letter to O. Henry 

MESSRS. Hodder and Stoughton, O. Hen- 
ry's English publishers, recently received a 
letter addressed in their care to O. Henry, 
Esq., which they, having no business connec- 
tions with the spirit world, are unable to for- 
'ward. The letter is from Santiago, Chile. 
"Dear Sir and Friend: 

"I am fresh enough to call you friend right 
away, because you have done me a great 
service you have made me LAUGH, a thing I 
have not been able to do for years. The rea-

luck, lots of it. B'ut this morning when I 
was driving round this dirty town from one 
end to the other, yes, this morning I read your

I am a Norwegian and can count my ances-

New York Music Week, April 

NEW YORK will celebrate April 17-24, 
her second music week. This is not a 
festival by or for musicians, but is an effort 
to appeal to the musical instincts of every- 
one, so that he will want to hear more 
music or play more music. Last year 1700 
organizations participated in New York's 
Music Week. Booksellers have a keener in- 
terest than most retailers in this event, as 
another chance for special displays. The pub- 
lishers, too, are featuring new and appropri- 
ate books. 

Can* Praise Go Further? 

ON the first page of the February 4 number 
of the London Book-Post appeared the 
following notice, which we are delighted to 
reprint :

great pleasure; the whole of it is in- 
stinct with life, and should be of vital 
interest to publishers, booksellers, book- 
sellers' assistants and all who care for

goes, it is one of the best trade papers 
that ever has been issued, and if it is 
not invidious to make comparisons, it

Rent Plus 

A Pamphlet on Retailing 

IN connection with the recent advertising 
campaign in the Dry Goods Economist In 
the interest of increasing the number of book 
outlets in department stores, the editors of 
that periodical brought out a very attractive 
pamphlet on "Starting a Book Department." 
This pamphlet describes the advantages of 
having a book department, discusses location 
and layout, shelving and display problems, 
classification, marking, care of stock, etc. 
Copies of the pamphlets are being distributed 
thru Baker & Taylor. 

IN selecting the location of a book- 
store, it has often been pointed out, 
by those who have experimented with 
locations just off the main thoro- 
fares, that it is often possible to take 
advantage of such situations with 
their much lower rent by increasing 
the percentage of advertising. This 
might mean that the total of rent 
plus advertising would be the same 
in either location, tho there would 
be on the less expensive street a 
much better floor space and oppor- 
tunity to display. 

The advertising manager for a 
large chain of clothing stores, in 
addressing the Rochester Ad Club 
recently on the subject of retail ad- 
vertising, said that his recommenda- 
tion was that the merchant should 
spend 7}/2% of total sales for the 
two items of rent plus advertising. 
He believed that this rule would ap- 
ply as well to upstairs locations as 
it would to side streets. If a rental 
can be obtained that requires 4% of 
the sales, there would be a margin 
of 3 T /2% for advertising, while if 
the rental was higher and went to 
5%, there would be only 2^% left. 
It might be well to keep in mind 
some such equalization in selecting a 
location for a bookstore. 

Another suggestion from this ex- 
pert was that if the retailer had a 
certain amount to spend a year for 
advertising, he would recommend^ 
dividing it into equal weekly parts 
and spending that amount each week 
instead of concentrating with large 
space on the busy seasons. He be- 
lieved that hammering away persis- 
tently built up the permanent cus- 
tomer and started steady buyers to- 
ward the store more than a large 
spread at the busy seasons, and he 
deplored the plan of spending the 
largest" sums at two clearance sea- 
a plan which only emphasized to the 
regular customers the fact that if they had 
waited they might have bought for less. 

Shipping Tag Publicity 

ON the shipping tags of the Greenwood 
Bookshop of Wilmington there is printed 
as good bookstore publicity the famous saying 
of Carlyle, "The true university these days 
is a collection of books." 'If 4! was true in 
Carlyle's time, it is increasingly true to-day, 
and this is a quotation that could well be re- 
peated and reprinted widely wherever there 
are those who are busy distributing books.

JOHN DRINK WATER, who came to America 
to see the stage production of his play, "Mary 
Stuart," sailed for England on the Adriatic,

New York will have to solace their misery 
by reading the play just published by Hough- 
ton Mifflin. 

G. M. TREVELYAN is engaged in writing a 
history of England from 1780 to 1900, a period 
which practically covers the whole modern pe- 
riod, extending, roughly, from the loss of 
America to the outbreak of the Boer War. 

THE A. C. GILBERT Company of New Haven, 
makers of practical toys for the development 
of useful mechanics, have just published an

will reissue it during that week. Mr. Isaac- 
son is well-known as musical editor of the

FEW AUTHORS have such expert if amateur 
publicity agents as Dr. Albert Einstein. Alder- 
man Falconer recently volunteered for the role, 
when his veto of the vote of New York's city 
fathers to extend to Dr. Einstein the freedom 
of the city procured for Dr. Einstein columns 
of newspaper space. In Germany, Herr Lei- 
bus, editor of a Berlin paper, was equally 
successful, for his modest proposal to murder 
Einstein for the good of the fatherland, has 
been noted in papers far removed from Berlin.

Concerning the Next 'Trade List Annual" 

To Publishers: 

In order to alloiv all publishers ample time in which to prepare their catalogs 
for insertion in the Trade List Annual for 1921 (ready August 31.^) we are noiv 
mailing to contributors the customary instructions and shipping directions. Pub- 
Ushers whose lists did not appear in the Annual for 1920 are especially urged in 
the interest of the booksellers and librarians to have them ready in time for this 
year's Annual. 

We remind publishers of smaller lists, not hitherto represented in the 
Annual, that this publication is of even more proportional importance to them, 
than to the large publishers who are always represented, since retail booksellers 
are less likely to have knowledge of their books when a customer makes inqui- 
ries. Publishers who have but a few books, or who issue no catalog, can have 
their list printed by us at small cost. Write us for terms.

Rare Books, Autographs and Prints 

THE London Mercury says that "no recent 
centenary, excepting Shakespeare, has at- 
tracted so much attention as that of Keats." 

The British Museum is preparing an ex- 
tensive exhibition relating to Dante and early 
Italian literature in commemoration of the 
great Italian poet's sixth centenary. 

An exhibition of etchings and dry points 
by Vans Gravesande will be on view during 
this month at the galleries of Arthur H. Har- 
low & Company, Fifth Avenue print dealers. 

Since Henry E. Huntington is now turning 
his attention to collecting the first editions of 
worth-while modern authors, his example may 
stimulate others to activity in this field. 

Dr. Rosenbach is reported by The Bookman's 
Journal to have said that the condition of 
business in the rare book-trade at the present 
time is better than in almost any other line of 

It is reported that William Brown, the 
Edinburgh bookseller, has recently received a 
bundle of manuscript from California which 
has proved to be a further instalment of 
Robert Louis Stevenson's "Weir of Hermis- 

One of four authenticated complete issues 
of La Libre Belgique with accompanying cer- 
tificates and inscribed photograph of Cardinal 
Mercier, will be sold for the benefit of the 
University of Louvain at the American Art 
Galleries, April 21. 

The growth of interest in fine prints, which 
has been so rapid in recent years, is by no 
means confined to New York. Collections of 
more than ordinary' size and quality are being 
formed in Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago. 
Many important collectors are also to be found 
in the smaller cities. 

German catalogs filled with descriptions of 
rarities of incunabula and early printing, pre- 
pared with the scholarly detail characteristic 
of German catalogers, are now finding their 
way regularly to collectors in this country. 
The German rare book-trade is said to have 
been one of the quickest of all lines of busi- 
ness to recover after the war. 

Twenty-five papers, all signed book reviews 
from either the North American Revieiv or 
The Nation, written by Henry James, in the 
early 'sixties, when about twenty-one years of 
age, will shortly be published in a limited 
edition by the Dunster House Bookshop, of 
Cambridge, Mass. 

The "Autobiography of Martin Van Buren," 
recently published by the American Historical 

Association at the Government Printing Of- 
fice, Washington, is being generally hailed by 
critics and historical students, as one of the 
most important additions to American his- 
torical literature made in recent years. It will 
rank in importance as one of a half dozen of 
the most important autobiographies published 
in this country. 

The private library of Professor Milyukov, 
formerly professor of history at the University 
of Moscow, is one of the few great collections 
of Russian books that have become the prop- 
erty of the Leland Stanford University. This 
collection is said to be one of the most com- 
plete in existence on Russian literature. It 
was hidden at Helsingfors during the war 
and has only recently been shipped to America. 

Wall's Etched Monthly, the first all etched 
magazine, is one of the latest novelties in the 
art field. Sketches from life of Mark Twain, 
Gilbert K. Chesterton and others have recently 
appeared. A forthcoming number will con- 
tain an etching of James F. Drake with an 
article by him on first editions. The magazine 
contains regularly five picture plates together 
with seven pages of text, all printed by hand 
from copper plates, numbered, signed by the 
artist, and limited to 125 copies. 

Books, prints, autograph letters, relics and 
works of art relating to Napoleon and the 
Island of St. Helena, the property of Dr. 
Silk and Field Marshal Lord Grenfell, and 
including documents relating to Napoleon at 
St. Helena; views of the Island and portraits 
of the Emperor; miniatures, medals and 
cameos; a marshal's baton said to have be- 
longed to Soult; a lock of the Emperor's hair, 
and other relics, will be sold at Sotheby's, in 
l.crdon, May 5. 

The longest and most important manuscript 
of the poet Shelley offered for sale in recent 
years, the original draft of "A Philosophical 
View of Reform," consisting of 201 pages and 
including one of the best landscape drawings 
done by the poet, was purchased by Dr. Rosen- 
bach, at Sotheby's, April 6. The date when 
the manuscript was completed is unknown, but 
it is first mentioned in a letter in 1820. It was 
not printed, however, until last year. 

The London Times, in discussing the recent 
sale of Britwell selections at which Dr. Rosen- 
bach secured nearly the whole of the collec- 
tion, declared it to be "the sensation of the 
season as far as it has gone," and adds, "no 
one can, however, view the departure of these 
books from our shores without a feeling of 
deep regret and disappointment that English 
collectors and institutions did not put up even 
a better fight than they did. Dr. Rosenbach in 
this sale is said to have broken all records in 

April 16, 1921 


the high percentage of purchases made by a 
dealer nn either side of the Atlantic at a sale 
of the first importance. 

Charles E. Lauriat & Company, of Boston, 
recently brought to this country a copy of 
Peter Parley's "Tales of Christmas," in the 
original green glazed boards, bearing on the 
fly leaf the following inscription : "Miss 
Blanche Ainsworth with affectionate regards 
from Charles Dickens and John Forster." 
This was the great Christmas book of the 
year and Dickens put it in his pocket when he 
went to Bristol to see William Harrison Ains- 
worth, then an old man who was ill. When 
leaving, Dickens presented the book to the 
daughter of the novelist and on the fly leaf 
wrote the inscription with the exception of 
the name of John Forster, which was written 
by Forster. The volume links the names of 
Ainsworth, Dickens, and his biographer, and, 
furthermore, it was illustrated by George 
Cruikshank, who drew the designs for the 
wood engravings. 

Manuscripts, letters and drawings in pen and 
ink and water color by Robert Fulton, con- 
signed by Mrs. A. T. Sutcliffe and Edward C. 
Cammann, direct descendants of the great in- 
ventor, and autograph letters of Aaron Burr 
and important documents signed by Washing- 
ton and other autographic material consigned 
by Mrs. F. S. Shinn, together with Ameripana, 
the property of several owners, will be sold 
at the Anderson Galleries, April 26 and 27. 
This is one of the most important sales of the 
season and contains much material of the 
greatest importance. The Fulton material 
contains letters and drawings relating to the 
torpedo, submarine and steamboat inventions. 
The Washington items include a pardon 
granted to ten men who had been indicted for 
high treason; documents of this character 
are rarely met with. There are also important 
lots concerning California, Canada, Benjamin 
Franklin, Napoleon, the early West, New 
York City and New England. 

Few modern first editions have made a more 
amazing record than Filzgerald's translation of 
"The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam." Originally 
published in 1859, by Bernard Quaritch for a 
hall crown, it was soon reduced to a shilling, 
then to six pence, and finally the unsold re- 
mainder was dumped upon the stand in front 
of Quaritch's bookshop to be sold at two 
pence or a penny a volume authorities differ 
as to the exact amount. It seems only a few 
years ago that it began to climb upward from 
20. 'In April of last year the Holden copy 
brought $975 at auction in this city. In the 
last few months three copies have been of- 
fered for sale one in London for 225 and 
two copies in this country at $1,200 each. The 
demand for this rarity so far exceeds any 
possible supply that still further sensational 
advances are pretty surely to be made in the 
near future. 

The bibliographical library of M. T. 
O'Shaughnessy and an English library were 
sold at the Anderson Galleries, April 4 and 5, 
bringing $9,573-6o. The Church "Catalogue of 
Americana," 7 vols., imperial 8vo., New York, 
1897-09, brought $580. This copy belonged to 
the late Luther S. Livingston 2 who handled 
practically every book in the collection and ha; 
his marginal notes on many of the leaves. 
Other lots and the prices which they realized 
were the following: William Congreve's 
"Works," 3 vols., 1761, Baskerville edition, 
$45; Thomas Bewick's collected works, 5 vols., 
royal 8vo., Newcastle, 1819-20, large paper 
copies of the first editions, $65 ; David Mc- 
Stauffer's "American Engravers Upon Copper

lication, $65; Brunet's "Manual," 6 vols., 
Paris, 1860-65, $42.50; Thomas Pennant's "Of 
London," 4to, London, 1740, in a Roger Payne 
binding, $70; Archbishop Laud's own copy of 
"The Book of Common Prayer," London, 
1638, $175 ; Robert Burton's "Anatomy of 
Melancholy," small folio, Oxford, 1624, the 
second edition corrected and the first folio 
edition, $40; Cruikshank's "London Oddities," 
original boards, London, 1823, first edition, 
$60; Pierce Egan's "Life in London," illus- 
trated by 'George Cruikshank, 8vo., morocco,

ite Shadows

South Seas 





ONCE more this^ author has captured between book 
covers the colorful witchery of the far South Seas. 
In this new book he makes the delighted reader see 
and feel the best-known of the French Pacific Islands 
-beautiful, perfumed Tahiti. But like his amazingly 
successful " White Shadows in the South Seas," the 
new volume is more than a marvelous travel book; 
it is also humor and romance with the narrative drive, 
the lyrical phrase and the dramatic suspense of a 
masterpiece of fiction. 

Not to have read "Mystic Isles of the South Seas" 
is to have missed one of the most refreshing experiences

Leading titles of RECENT FICTION are suggested below: 
A Western Novel That You'll Enjoy Reading 



This is a Colorado mining story dealing with the attempt of "Squint" 
Kodaine and his son to wrest the Blue Poppy Silver Mine from Robert Fairchild. 
Mr. Cooper is familiar with Colorado mining-town life and he has a sense of 
humor which marks "The Cross-Cut" as a western novel of high order. The 
plucky hero and the spirited heroine will make a strong appeal as their romance 
threads its way through the book. With a superb plot, a realistic background and 
excellent characterization, "The Cross-Cut" will be liked by lovers of virile 
American fiction. Frontispiece. $1.90 

A Vivid and Striking Story of Wild Animal Life 


By HAL G. EVARTS, author of "The Cross Pall" 

Lovers of the great American out-of-doors and the wild life that is rapidly 
passing have discovered in Hal G. Evarts a writer of animal stories that vividly 
recall Jack London's "The Call of the Wild." In "The Yellow Horde" Evarts 
makes the adventure of the coyote so enthralling that the reader closes the book 
with the feeling that he has been transported back to the great open spaces of 
the West and Northwest, and understands the wild, free life of the hunted.

which reveals his powers in a new 
and fascinating way. 



It is a panorama of life. Before our eyes pass a swift 
succession of vivid pictures of a 'poor poet's garret, of 
the cafes, the absinthe drinkers, the boulevards, of the 
various queer neighbors artists, little sewing girls, 
cocottes, grisettes all the busy, jostling life of the Latin 
Quarter. This volume is the largest thus far that he has 
written. It is full of humor, of pathos, of tragedy, such 
as only Service knows how to write. 


Of Mr. Service's former books "The Spell of the 
Yukon," "Ballads of a Cheechako," and "Rhymes of a 
Red Cross Man/' This new book, just ready, "Ballads 
of a Bohemian/' will take its definite place beside them.

A Tale of the Days of Camel-Bells BURRIS JENKINS 

If one who had lived in the days of camel-bells could return, this might 
be the tale he would unfold. It is startlingly real dead cities live again in all 
the mad, barbaric splendor of the past like a purple veil of witchery the 
languorous atmosphere of the East descends and we are thrilled observers of a 
heart-moving romance, set against the backgrourd of the world's greatest 
tragedy, and the mighty dawn of unconquerable faith. It will be numbered 
among the great literary productions of the year. It will be admired for the 
thrilling tale, discussed for the manner of the telling, and cherished for the 
inspiration and faith it will give. Frontispiece. $2.00 


Mrs Hill's novels are the wished for books in many homes. They provide 
enjoyment for the whole family circle. Nothing unsavory ever creeps between

clear the mystery that surrounds her life as well as the mystery of a death.

GRACE LIVINGSTON HILI/S novels have been 
"best sellers" since "Marcia Schuyler," pub- 
lished fourteen years ago. Perhaps one rea- 
son for their popularity is that they are read 
by all members of the family. Mrs. Hill has 
a novel method of working. She does most of 
her composing on a typewriter in a dark room. 
She finds her recreation in paddling on a quiet 
river near her suburban home. Mrs. Hill de- 
votes much of her leisure to Christian service, 
particularly in connection with the Christian 
Endeavor Society. Her latest aad longest 
story, "The Tryst" (Lippincott), is in her 
usual vein. It tells of Jo'hn Preeves and of 
his divine tryst; of how in seeking after God 
he finds Patty Merrill, and helps to clear up 
the mystery surrounding her life as well as 
the mystery of a death. 

PHILIP GIBBS has recently returned to Eng- 
land after his lecture tour. His latest book is 
a novel of the stage and home, "Beauty and 
IsTick" (Devin-Adair). 

ONE OF the most vital and vigorous of the

Smith whose "Tamarisk Town" of last year 
was favorably received on both sides of the 
Atlantic. Her "Green Apple Harvest" (Dut-

pears this month. 

WHAT WILL doubtless prove to be another 
of her many "best sellers" is Ethel M. Dell's 
latest book, "Rosa Mundi and Other Stories" 
(Putnam). A flaming red heart on the jacket 
heralds the six short but complete novels of 
passion and adventure : "A Debt of Honor," 
"The Deliverer," "The Prey of the Dragon," 
"The Secret Service Man," "The Penalty," 
and the title story. 

IF YOUR memory takes you back to the 
period when the "colyumists" were getting 
copy out of President Wilson's reading mat- 
ter, you will recall to what extent J. S. 
Fletcher's "The Middle Temple Murder" fig- 
ured in the papers. Mr. Fletcher's new mys- 
tery story, "The Chestermarke Instinct" 
(Knopf) deals with the extraordinary disap- 
pearance of the manager of a country bank 
and with the queer personalities which are 
woven into the general tangle. 

THERE WAS a flutter of excitement in the

"Queen Victoria" as the subject and title of 
his new book (Harcourt). The book is a

life of her own amidst all her public affairs, 
but of the era to which she has given 'her

War and the Religious Outlook was appointed

its work, it published the results of its investi- 
gations from time to time. The latest of these, 
"The Church and Industrial Reconstruction" 
and "Christian Unity, Its Principles and Possi- 
bilities" have been issued by The Association 
Press. The former approaches the industrial 
problem from the point of view of the Chris- 
tion Gospel. The latter studies the problem 
of church unity in the present and the future.

Edith Wharton: A Brief Study 

By Hildegarde Hawthorne 

AT her best and her best is "Ethan 
Frome" 1 Edith Wharton has genius. 
Perhaps she is destined never again to 
reach the height she touched in that remark- 
able book, in which there is not a gesture to 
spare, a word too much, yet which hoWs a 
great human story, without one essential 
missing. The effect left on the mind by 
this grim tragedy is like to that produced 
by a naked, rock-bound headland, swept by 
fire, stark, grey, held now in the dark clutch 
of December, seen thru the clear, hard atmo- 
sphere in all its harsh beauty. No one 
who has read it will forget it, and to read 
it is to read the very life of a human soul. 

"Ethan Frome" was published in 1911, 
when Mrs. Wharton had been writing for a 
number of years, and when she had attained 
to the full mastery of her style. Yet she was 
never an amateur; there is nothing fumbling 
nor immature to any of her work. Frankly, 
she modeled her style on that of Henry James, 
and if she has not been able to attain the 
finest subleties of that artist, at least she 
has escaped his obscurities. She does not 
love people as he loved them, and her books 
have not the warm and pitiful glow his 
knew; but she has an equal passion for the 
English language, an equal respect for in- 

Mrs. Wharton has ranged widely in her 
literary work. She has written several vol- 
umes of short stories, including 'The Greater 
Inclination," 1 "The Descent of Man and 
Other Stories," 1 "Tales of Men and Ghosts," 1 
"Crucial Instances." 1 She has written vivid 
impressions of travel in various parts of .the 
world, she has written moving sketches of 
France at war 'and here indeed she found 
the means to touch the heart of her readers 
and she has written novels, a half dozen or 
more. It was "The House of Mirth," 2 a 
merciless study of a woman selling herself 
for social position and money, that made her 
fame, or at least that spread the boundaries 
of that fame wide. Mrs. Wharton struck a 
more popular note in that book than she is 
given to striking. It is probably the best read 
of her novels, but it cannot stand beside 
"Summer" 3 or "The Reef," 3 as an artistic 
achievement. "Summer," which, like her mas- 
terpiece, "Ethan Frome," is a New England 
study, deserves the thanks of all Americans 
who want to see our literature reach the fine 
measure of the world's best work. 

"The Reef" is concerned with far more 
sophisticated persons, with a background of 

London and Paris. The two women and the 
man who stands between them are drawn 
with the utmost cleverness, with that cutting 
sort of insight into motives and character 
that makes one of Mrs. Wharton's strongest 
possessions as a writer. She has an extraor- 
dinary power of putting the faintest grada- 
tions of a mood into words, the motives un- 
derlying fluctuations of purpose and action. 
She is always observing life, measuring it, 
transmuting it into the form of fiction with- 
out losing its actuality because of ability to 
measure and to observe. 

No -study of this writer would be at all 
balanced that left out mention of her work 
in France, at least of the expression of that 
contact with war and war's suffering which 
found form in the two little books, "The 
Marne"" and "French Ways and Their Mean- 
ing." 3 The first is a story with an American 
lad for hero, a young man who loves France. 
In the brief course of the tale Mrs. Wharton 
manages to convey something of the long 
agony France suffered, to indicate her heroic 
gesture, to set up before all .eyes the magnifi- 
cence of those two great victories of the 
Maine that set a bourne to the advance of 
the barbarian and saved France. She shows, 
too, the splendor of the American action and 
the devoted courage of her sons. It is a 
book to be read at a single sitting, for it 
has the quality of a chant. The other vol- 
ume is a group of essays, of impressions, 
with an intimate, delightful charm, impres- 
sions that seek to interpret the French soul 
and spirit, to reveal a great people thru the 
study of certain leading characteristics com- 
mon to the race. 

It is impossible to give more than an out- 
line of Mrs. Wharton's work in an article 
of this length. Her book of poems, her many 
travel sketches, most of her novels, are not 
even mentioned here. The latest of these, 
"The Age of Innocence," 3 a picture of New 
York a generation ago, has been criticized 
so widely and so favorably that there is lit- 
tle need to draw attention to its brilliant re- 
creation of a period gone forever, yet one 
that has left its traces on our national life. 
The group of people who meet in the story 
are painted with Mrs. Wharton's most con- 
summate art, there is a ripeness to the whole 
thing that is like a savor to the taste. She 
reveals here once again her power to identify 
herself with her characters and her period, a 
power that is the mark of the true novelist.

whole being was eminently fitted. The man 
is a mere incident, and practically disappears, 
tho he enters the story again later, when Mary's 
son has grown strong and splendid under her 
care, bringing about a complication that 
threatens the hard- won happiness of the moth- 
er. In the end it is another factor, and again 
a factor of waste, the war, that sets the final 
seal on Mary's heart and the story. Waste of 


! shamed and slinking thing, hanging her head 
before the glare of virtuous eyes. Simply, 
with a fine courage and entire conviction that 
she is doing the right and the wise thing, Mary 
Throgmorton accepts love when it comes to 
her just as she touches upon thirty years, and 
takes the result with joy. She has seen her 
three sisters wither and grow old and bitter in 
the small lonely little village where they live, 
smug and respectable people, fed only on the 
husks of life. Her heart is not made to dry 
up; she is a mother by instinct and desire, 
with a beautiful strong body fashioned for 
the true work of women. And a woman in all 
it implies she will be. 

That there is something wrong in the possi- 
ble wasting of such a woman is what Mr. 
Thurston wishes us to understand. Mary, 
without her life as a mother, would have been 
a travesty. The fact that there was never an 
opportunity for her to meet a man she could 
marry who wished to marry her, and that the 
man who did fall in love with her was mar- 
ried already was not a reason for her to be 
denied her destiny, a destiny for which bet- 

the true, splendid source of life, waste of that 
life itself in the rapacity and blood of warring 
nations, these are the great evils, in Mr. Thurs- 
ton's eyes, evils born of man, born especially 
of his passion for possession possession of 
women, possession of things. With all the elo- 
quence of his colorful style, and with a burn- 
ing sincerity, he places the facts before us, 
tells the simple ^incidents, and leaves us to 
judge. That reader will be rare who does not 
come to love Mary, and to believe that, for 
herself at least, she did right.

The Coming of the King, By Bernie Babcock. 
359 P- D Bobbs-M. $2 

MRS. Babcock has added one more to 
the long line of romances descended 
from "Ben-Hur," a romance which fol- 
lows in a vein of poetic mysticism the Gospel 
narratives of the life of Christ, with the cor- 
rupt and magnificent oppression of Rome for 
a background. A few imaginary characters 
are introduced, in particular Zador Ben Amon, 
the evil Jew to whom is assigned the part of 
Judas ; 'but the main figures are those of Alary 
and Martha, with their brother Lazarus, who 
is identified with the young man who had 
great possessions. Mrs. Babcock lays the most" 
stress upon the human qualities of the Saviour, 
tho most of the traditional incidents are retold 
and amplified in a romantic manner. The heal- 
ing of a leper is a scene especially reminiscent 
of "Ben-Hur." 

The author's picture of the period is more 
imaginative than historical, and the contrast 
between oppressed Jews and Roman oppressors 
is painted in simple blacks and whites. 

The corrupt scribes and Pharisees, the 
ravening mob and the time-serving Roman 
officials are drawn with an unsparing hand, 
while the revolutionary stirrings among the 
submerged peoples are described with a-i eye 
to present-day analysis. The contest between 
the two ideas of redress by force and regenera- 
tion by spiritual means, thru physical non- 
resistance, constitutes the chief message of the 
book, tho the line between these two principles 
is not drawn with complete consistency. But 
complete consistency is inhuman.

The Hall and the Grange; a novel. By Archi- 
bald Marshall. 414 p. D Dodd, M. $2 

RETICENCE and restraint have come 
lately to be considered almost as unde- 
sirable as some of the other qualities 
that are associated with the scorned adjective 
Victorian. One hardly dares to confess to a 
belief that they still have their place in litera- 
ture, and in other arts as well. But just as 
harmony in a room produces a pleasant effect 
of tranquillity, so 'does an ordered arrangement 
of plot and characterization in a novel bring 
a sense of restful enjoyment to the reader's 
mind. Mr. Archibald Marshall's "The Hall 
and the Grange" may, perhaps, be compared 
to a painting in which the values are so per- 
fectly subordinated each to the others and all 
to the whole that one can appreciate and 
criticize it only in its entirety. No one part 
of it stands out from the rest. So with the 
characters in "The Hall and the Grange." One 

feels instantly the personal quality of each 
whether it be the lovable and quick-tempered 
Colonel Edmund Eldridge or his somewhat 
pompous brother Sir William ; Coombe, the 
mischief-maker, or sentimental Miss Baldwin, 
the governess, who loved to read and dream 
romance or watch it unroll itself in the world 
under her eyes. But no one figure is allowed 
to monopolize the interest of the reader. Each 
fills his own place with due regard to his 
relation to all the others. 

This effect, of course, is not th'e* chance 
result of a fortunate choice of types. It his 
been produced from a careful adjustment of 
relative personal values, a conscientious weed- 
ing out of all that is out of key with the quiet 
color scheme of the picture. Yet there i? m 
artificiality in the resulting work of art. The 
picture it gives of one phase of English life 
is so natural, so simply and vividly true, that 
one almost doubts the painstaking workmanship 
that has gone to make it. Only one knows 
that nothing so good as this "just happens" in 
any art.

The Man Who Did the Ri<]ht Thi'ig. % Sir 
Harry Johnston. 447 p. D Ma cm. $2."o 

YOU remember "The Gay Dombeys" all 
full of little asides about Queen Victoria? 
Here is another romance by the same 
author. And tho Sir Harry rets it for the most 
part in the wilds of East Africa, he is careful 
to get in a few digs at her late majesty's far- 
reaching control of England's morals. 

Lucy Josling is just such a person as Carol 
of "Main Street," and would you believe it? 
she finds a Main Street right in the middle of 
Africa. For the missionary station to which 
her earnest young husband is attached is quite 
the dreariest place in the world for Lucy ; and 
the sneers of efficient Ann Jamblin make it 

But to go back to the beginning. Lucy, an 
English country teacher, sails for Africa to 
marry John. On the ship she meets Roger 
Bentham, of high social circles, and silently 
falls in love with him. But John, perspiring 
but happy, meets her at the dock, and within 
ten days they are married and starting on 
their up-country journey. 

Africa treats Lucy to all its worst horrors. 
Biting ants, a cobra, a lion and O Africa! 
a shower of bed-bugs from the roof of an 
Arab's boat combine to overthrow Lucy men- 
tally and physically. So she must rest a 
while at a medical missionary's until she is 
able to go on to John's station. After which,

But Roger, detailed to warn the missionaries 
of an Arab uprising, appears and events move 
rapidly on a stage set now in Africa, now in 
England, until the book ends with all the in- 
conclusiveness of life. 

What is Sir Harry getting at? Is there a 
cynical turn to that title? But whatever it 
means, it's a stirring tale, and well written a 
book for the people who lave adventure as 
much as for those who love character

My Son. By Corra PI arris. 274 />. 
Doran $1.90 

HUMOR, religion and common 
sense adorn this easy-to-read 
story Wherein those who felt the 
charm of "A Circuit Rider's Wife" 
may follow the family fortunes 
chronicled by the same spicy record- 
ing angel. Mrs. Thompson, wife of 
the unworldly old saint of a circuit- 
rider, is the mother of Peter, the 
young hero of the present tale. 
Against her silent desire, he embraces 
the ministry and from auspicious be- 
ginnings, he advances thru develop- 
ing incidents until he becomes the 
brisk, efficient, popular pastor of a 
modish city church. But in the dis- 
turbing conditions of life and thought 
in the post-war maelstrom, something 
happens to his smugly functioning 
personality and by drear degrees he 
loses his cocksureness but eventually 
gains his own soul. 

The dangers of a handsome young 
preacher from worldliness, flattery, 
and neurotic females are unblink- 
ingly recognized by the experienced 
maternal eye, and the homely phil- 
osophy and quaint humor that were 
so taking in the previous book form 
a mellow background for the prig's 
progress to a clarified state of mind 
and a highly suitable marriage with . 

a nice, wholesome girl, who, one ~' 
clearly foresees, will make an admirable minis- 
ter's wife. 

The story itself is on simple and usual lines ; 
it is the heart-to-heart, first-person treatment, 
with shrewd comments on the Methodist Con- 
ference, the traits of deacons, the peculiarities 
of parsonages, the curiosity of congregations 
and the incalculable impulses of the emotional 
ewe-lambs of the flock that will win popularity 
for the book. 

Distinct in itself, "My Son" will stimulate 
many to a rereading of its predecessor.

WHEN I get hold of an Ethel Sidgwick 
novel I take a holiday from work till 
I have read it. Yet should it be called 
a holiday? Her books aren't the easiest writ-

attention to know what she is up to. Neither 
do they leave one in melted-butter content-

ment with life. She utilizes neither the 
"happy ending" nor the "unhappy ending." 
Indeed, I'm not sure that her stories end at 
all. She shows a certain number of folks 
arranging their affairs thru a crisis and then 
she stops. But finis is not written at the end. 
Moreover, she is quite likely to pick up the 
same folks in a different grouping in her 
next volume. One's always delighted to 
find them again. 

Now about "Madam." Baldly put, it is a 
study of how a sensitive chap reacts to losing 
five brothers in the war. But that describes

it no better than does it's title. Miss Sidg- 
wick has the habit of picking .and choosing her 
heroes regardless of classic heroic traits. 
They are usually men who need a woman 
to look after them. Well worth looking after 
they are, too. And appreciative of the at- 
tention said woman devotes to them. Really 
very worth-while men, but not at all of the 
strong-oak or the sheltering-rock variety. 
They even, some of them, have "nerves." 
Fancy allowing a he-hero to have nerves ! 
Only a writer who draws from life would 
dare it. 

In trying to tell you about this book I 
find I am talking all around it instead of 
digging out its heart and presenting it on a 
painted platter. But that course would some- 
how kill it. Let the heart stay in the book 
where it throbs. You'll feel its beat when 
you open the covers. A living book is not 
an everyday occurrence.

Clerambault. By Remain Rolland. Holt $2 

CLERAMBAULT is a French poet, affec- 
tionate, sentimental, democratically minded, 
trusting in the civilization of his day. We 
discover him, in the beginning of this new 
product of the pen of Romain Rolland, happy 
with wife and children, sitting of a July after- 
noon in the garden of his comfortable home 
at St. Prix. His is the mood of kindly dis- 
position toward his fellow man and the feeling 
of being at one with the rest of the world. 
This even tranquility might have continued 
unshattered, and this generous revery unbroken 
if war had not descended like a cloud and 
L lerambault's broad and easy principles, more 
blindly accepted than lived upon and real, been 
subjected to the test. 

This is the history of the evolution of a 
pacifist, we must remember ; and the first stage 
of that evolution, for the poet Clerambault at 
any rate, is a reversion to a lust for war, and 
it is the death of his only son, who had en- 
listed and been killed at the front, which marks 
the beginning in the process of his liberation. 
He soon finds himself separated and set apart, 
critical of the mob spirit to which he had been 
a victim. But he becomes something more 
than mere pacifist. Propaganda for peace, war 
to end war these come to seem the concerns of 
"big children," as Clerambault calls them, of 
the young and eager souls who must insist 
upon an "absolute good." 

There are many characters in the book 
shadows in the spheres of pacifism thru which 
the poet travels in his development. Cleram- 
bault, in spite of the rigor of his views, re- 
mains rather soft-minded, sentimental, sensi- 
tive to and dependent upon the feelings of his 

fellow man. And there are others, one young 
man in particular, of tougher mental caliber 
and of a more venturesome spirit than Cleram- 
bault himself. 

Tho the book is written as a narrative, we 
are face to face with the contents and pur- 
pose of an essay. The author thus fore- 
warns us in the introduction, "This book is 
not a novel, but rather the confession of a 
free spirit telling of its mistakes." As such, 
it is penetrating, uplifting, at times, eloquent; 
but it leaves us still waiting for another great 
work pf Romain Holland's to place side by 
side with "Jean-Christophe."

Beauty And Mary Blair. By Ethel M. Kelley. 
282 p. O H. Miff. $2 

THIS story is a frank and courageous 
presentment of certain perils of adoles- 
cence under present-day conditions. The 
modern young girl, armed wiith a theoretic 
knowledge of life that would have scandal- 
ized earlier generations, looks with a critical 
and appraising eye upon the passing pano- 
rama oi her immediate world ; and when, as 
in a sadly large percentage of families it is 
bound to happen, she sees with growing dis- 
illusion and distress foibles, weaknesses, 
breaches of the unwritten law, it is not 
strange if in sudden revolt she should ask 
herself whether convention, respectability, 
honor itself were not just hypocrisy's mask 
for a rotten world. 

If Miss Kelley had nothing but the sordid 
ugliness of life and dangers of adolescence 
to give us, this book would have a far differ- 
ent and diminished value. What makes it a 
sane, healthy, constructive criticism of life is 
her own unquenchable optimism. Mary Blair, 
having no one at home to turn to for advice, 
is thrown upon the protection of her instinct ; 
and instinct to-day, bereft of the good old- 
fashioned home discipline, bends perilessly 
when leaned upon. But at the crucial mo- 
ment, when she faces the momentous prob- 
lem of a dim shadowy staircase, when her 
hesitant finger already presses an unrespon- 
sive electric button, that small remnant of 
what we call instinct, inherited thru genera- 
tions of decent, self-respecting forebears, 
suddenly stiffens itself in revolt, and Mary 
Blair sees with clear eyes the gulf that sepa- 
rates the sordidness from the beauty of life. 
One thing that the reader must guard against 
is the danger of mistaking the book's mood. 
The story ds seen thru Mary Blair's ^yes ; the 
phrasing of each thought and situation is 
that of the modern up-to-date New York 
"flapper" in other words, flippant, pert, even 
slangy. But the mood is serious, and sincere.

The Yelloiv Horde. By Hal G. Evarts. 4 illus. 
by Charles Livingston Bull. 227 p. D Litt., B. 

IF you're fed-up with eternal triangles, flap- 
pers, heroes soulful and cavemen, detectives 
and the other conventional fiction stage- 
sets, try this brand new variety. Dunno who 
Hal G. Evarts is, but he sure knows animals. 
Not even so sure he doesn't sometimes know 
too much about animals sometimes they do 
some mighty tall thinking, considerin' what 
they are but the result is a darned good yarn. 

Why hasn't anybody else ever thought of 
this idea of using a coyote pack the wiliest, 
shrewdest little beasts on four feet for the 
characters in a story? At the head of the 
pack is Breed, a yellow half-breed wolf- 
coyote, with all the strength of limb of the one 
strain and the uncanny sagacity of the other. 
How he wins his mate, the feud with the lone 
grey wolf, Flatear, Breed's hard won knowl- 
edge of men, and the many fierce mid light 
forays of the pack cram these pages with a 
novel kind of interest. For Mr. Evarts is no 
mere "dude rancher" writing about a coyote 
he saw a mile off thru his binoculars : his 
coyotes are so real you can fairly smell 'em! 

O yes, and the story does not end with 
Breed's death. Ernest Thompson Seton had a 
sadistic streak that murdered all his animal 
heroes waab, the majestic old grizzly, who 
inhaled sulphur fumes, the wild stallion who 
threw himself over a cliff : gosh ! how I blub- 
bered over 'em as a kid ! Not so this story 
but you read it and see. Robert S. Lynd. 


The Tragic Bride. By Francis Brett Yoitny. 
253 p. D Dutt. $2 

THE comparison of any young novelist to 
Conrad seems inevitable, but if one reads 
"The Tragic Bride" with "Victory" fresh 
in the memory, one accepts* the comparison and 
adds another, for one feels again a stifling 
sense of certain tragedy not so unbearably as 
in "Victory," but intensely. 

One knows from the very Prolog, which, by 
the way, should be reread after the last chap 
ter, that Gabrielle's history is to end blackly 
and that Arthur is to marry the clergyman's 
daughter. So one reads not to discover the 
what but the how. The brief, swift story pro- 
ceeds with more of the short story writer's 
art than the novelist's. It is the thrilling yet 
convincing story of Gabrielle Hewish; her first 
love affair which is over before it has begun 
and which is followed immediately by her 
desolate marriage, so that when she loves 
Arthur she is still an unawakened child. The 
canvass is not meagre, but no character is 

sketched which hasn't an essential part in the 
design. Biddy Joyce, obstinate and stupid; 
the Halbertons, elegant and influential; the di- 
rect and forceful Mrs. Payne are minor char- 
acters, perhaps, but with majestic nonchalance 
they determine the fate 'of Gabrielle. The di- 
rectness and economy of the story make its 



Little Brown & Company 

pattern very clear, and the repetition of inci- 
dents completes the perfection of the design and 
intensifies the impression of inescapable fate. 

But whatever he has borrowed of the short 
story's art, Mr. Young has written a novel of 
enough space and leisure to give the charming 
pictures of Gabrielle's childhood. These, tho 
they are few, are as freshly and sympatheti- 
cally done as the pictures of the childhood of 
Edwin Ingleby which were the endearing part 
of "The Young Physician." Tho the actual 
scenes of childhood are few, we never see 
Gabrielle Hewish really grown up. The sensi- 
tive center of so much storm and tragedy, she 
retained the power to be happy not from prin- 
ciple or conviction but because she obeyed 
simply and naturally the instincts of all healthy 
young creatures. She was like the rabbit 
Arthur killed, over whose manglect body she 
wept, "It was so little. . So happy ." The 
most intriguing of heroines, her charm is her 
lack of complexness. Her ingenuousness is 
almost baffling, yet it is her innocence and 
helplessness that make one wonder whether 
one can technically call her "The Tragic 
Bride." Mildred Catharine Smith.

Book Gifts for Graduation 

By Joseph Mosher 

JUNE is imminent with its roses, its pha- 
lanxes of young graduates, and its presents. 
Already a fond uncle, here and there, is 
contemplating an auto, a saddle-horse, or a 
trip to the Yellowstone for some blooming 
young hopeful. Oh, happy uncle, oh, happy, 
happy hopeful, as Keats might have said. But 
that is only here and there; more there than 
here. In the cases of most proudj relatives 
and friends at the annual intellectual coming- 
out season, the gift must be determined rather 
by the oft-sought purse of the giver than by 
the swelling merits of the diplomatic corps. 

The general subject of gifts is of such a 
genial, cheerful character that one dislikes to 
settle down at once to an analytic, categoric 
tone of discourse. And surely we can without 
worrying and drawing long faces arrive at a 
practical answer to the question as to what we 
shall give them, these young graduates of 

Well, one of the qualities of a graceful gift 
on any occasion is fitness. For a departing 
voyager, a nice basket of fruit or a case of 
Mothersill's Remedy; for a retiring public of- 
ficial, an autographed resolution of congratula- 
tion or thanks ; for a newly marri-ed pair, a 
house and lot or an annuity. For the academic 
debutante and her male counterpart the range 
of appropriate gifts is wide indeed. The token 
may vary from a box of sweetmeats to a 
European trip. That fact tends to make one's 
choice difficult, but there is a balm in Gilead; 
namely, a certain type of gift has particular 
fitness for the graduate books. 

I say "particular fitness" because graduation 
does not mean for the student a leaving be- 
hind of the life of books, but, as the term 
"commencement" indicates, rather a more seri- 
ous beginning of activities in which books and 
reading will play a considerable part. Fur- 
thermore, an academic course has in general 
cultivated an ability to appreciate literature. 
Perhaps not in all students a universal appre- 
ciation, but at least an enjoyment of one or 
more types. 

This brings us to another quality of felici- 
tous giving : thoughtfuilness for the recipient's 
personal tastes or desires. Books permit the 
donor to give evidence that he has taken pains 
to discover what would be most pleasing. Is 
your young graduafe a lover of serious fic- 
tion? Wlhat a storehouse of delight he will 
find in a volume of Hardy or Meredith, Wells 
or Kipling, Winston Churchill, Mrs. Wharton, 
or Gertrude Atherton ! Perhaps the boy or 
girl is fond of poetry. Nothing could be a 

more charming or lasting remembrance of 
graduation time than a volume of Keats, Shel- 
'ley, Tennyson, Browning, Byron, Whittier, 
Lowell, any one of the poets included in such 
editions as the Cambridge or Oxford. For 
those who are interested in the drama a 
present sure to be appreciated would be a 
collection of plays by a favorite writer : Shaw, 
Barrie, Moody, Middleton, Maeterlinck, or 
Galsworthy, let us say. Even in the field of 
lighter vein, many things of permanent value 
may be found. As random examples take 
Stephen Leacock's delectable satires, or W. 
W. Jacobs' inimitably droll stories of old 
English "salts," or Mark Twain's immortal 

Besides the types already mentioned, biog- 
raphy, travel, art, history, and other fields 
afford a world of attractive items which if 
thoughtfully scanned will yield just the par- 
ticular one which appeals to the eager mind 
of the graduate. Graduation time is a happy 
moment to stimulate any inclinations which 
have been aroused in school or college to- 
ward the reading of good books, with its in- 
evitably broadening, cultivating results. Hav- 
ing this end in view it is particularly desir- 
able that the donor discriminate between the 
ephemeral, the trashy, and those books which 
make a lasting impression of beauty, truth, 
inspiration, and culture. 

The physical make-up of the volumes pre- 
sented should also be considered. This by no 
means implies the necessity of purchasing ex- 
pensive editions, for plenty of well-bound, 
decently-margined volumes, cleanly-printed 
on substantial paper are to be found without 
getting into the so-called "de luxe" class. 
There are^ to be sure, in all the book-shops 
wonderful, sumptuous single volumes and 
sets which wring the withers of the impecu- 
nious book-lover and which would corre- 
spondingly elate the lucky recipient. But 
fortunately, as has been indicated, admirable 
gift-books of every literary category range 
in price from the modest exaction for a little 
coat-pocket Ruskin or Emerson to the rela- 
tively plutocratic sum involved in the pur- 
chase of a big set featuring "hand-made paper 
and half-levant binding." Whatever you wish 
to spend for a graduation present, just bear 
in mind the words of Chaucer who spoke for 
the student when he said of the Oxford chap 
"For him was lever have at his beddes head 
Twenty bokes clad in blak or reed 

Than robes riche, or fithele, or gay sautrye."

Mystic Isles of the South Seas. By Frederick 
O'Brien. 549 p. O Cent. $5 

TO those lucV- readers v. ho have already 
come under the ' f f this author's ear- 
lier volume, "Wh.te Shadows in the South 
Seas," this new incursion into that realm of 
azure waters, dreamland isles and unspoiled 
nature needs neither introduction nor enco- 
mium. But if the spirit which Mr. O'Brien 
infuses into his pages and which makes them 
unique, even among its few rival volumes of 
South Sea literature, really sinks into your 
flesh and hones, you are filled with something 
akin to an apostolic zeal to preach and spread 
the contagion of its joyous irresponsibility. 
For this is one of those rare books that tempt 
a conscientious reviewer to throw caution to 
the wind and pour out his jubilance in a dis- 
proportioned enthusiasm. 

What sets Mr. O'Brien in a class by him- 
self is that by instinct he is neither a poet nor 
a maker of fiction, but an exceptionally clear- 
visioncd spectator, who gives back what he 
sees \vith the exactness of an autochromatic 
What one loves most in Mr. O'Brien's pages 

is that ugliness and sin fail to spoil for him 
the loveliness of the picture as a whole. Sel- 
dom within the limits of a single volume does 
one find so much human despair, so many hu- 
man derelicts, so much to beget a cynical and 
pessimistic irony of life. But this author is 
consistently, almost aggressively healthy- 
minded. He sees the human wreckage on all 
these far-off fairy shores, sees it with indulgent 
and understanding tolerance ; but it does not 
disturb him deeply, for his eye dwells by pre- 
ference insistently on the glory of opalescent 
coloring, on the tense fire of primitive pas- 
sions, on the whole magic, dissolving view of 
an evolving civilization, checked and wellnigh 
strangled by modern progress ; an arcadian civ- 
ilization, passing away with tragic swiftness, 
that will leave the world the poorer for its 
loss. One owes Mr. O'B'rien a lasting debt 
for having caught and fixed some of its rar- 
est and strangest phases before it was too late. 
One wonders how heavy a responsibility he 
has incurred thru the lingering nostalgia he 
has begotten for the exotic -how many eager, 
reckless pilgrims he has unknowingly sent hot- 
footed on the trail of those shimmering, elu- 
sive islands of his rainbow dreams?

LIKE the publication of a new novel by

Barsc & Hopkins 

To those of us who remember Mr. Service 
best as author of such verses as the title one 
in his* "The Spell of the Yukon" "I've stood 
in some mighty-mouthed hollow that's plumb- 
full of hush to the brim," full-throated stuff! 
it will be a bit of a surprise to find the present 
collection of poems of Bohemian life in the 
Latin Quarter of Paris where, we are told, 
Mr. Service now makes his home. By the 
device of interspersing with the verses in- 
formal prose comments in the first person on 
the characters and places mentioned, an in- 
formal air is given to the book as tho we were 
actually sitting with the poet at one of those 
little tables in the Boul' Mich' sipping sipping 
but I grow distracted! 

"And tonight I am at the end of my tether," we 
begin. "I wish I knew where tomorrow's breakfast 
was coming from. Well, since rhyming's been my 
ruin, let me rhyme to the bitter end: 
Lone amid the cafe's cheer, 
Sad of heart am I tonight; 

Dolefully I drink my beer, 
But no single line I write, 
There's the wretched rent to pay, 
Yet I glower at pen and ink. 
Oh, inspire me muse, I pray, 
It is later than you think ! 
Hello! there's a" frequent phrase. 
Bravo! let me write it down 

It is later than you think. 
Lastly, you who read; aye, you 
Who this very line may scan: 
Think of all you planned to do. . . . 
Have you done the best you can ? 
Etc. Etc. Etc. 

The two a. m. mood of the Latin Quarter 
is set forth in these four lines from "Noctam- 

"Full am I with cheer; 
In my heart the joy stirs; 
Couldn't be the beer, 
Must have been the oysters." 

At the close of the book are gathered a 
number of poems of the war Rlchard Lloyd 


Mary Stuart; a play. Bv John Drink-icater 
73 p. D H. Miff. $1.25 

IN his new play the author of "Abraham 
Lincoln" brings before us another appealing 
bygcne figure, the lovely Mary, Queen of 
Scots, whose history and tragic death mark 
for all who read history an unforgettable page 

Drinkwater draws Mary from the past to 
let her show young John Hunter that his wife 
Margaret does not fail in her love for him 
because she loves also another man. As old 
Andrew Boyd tells him, "There be women, 
and men, too, who are great lovers." "Such," 
he says, "do not love unworthily it is lament- 
able when they love unworthy men." 

Against this presentment of his case the 
unhappy Hunter shows the wounds to his pride, 
his dignity, his manhood. Mary Stuart, he de- 
clares, can tell him nothing. Then Mary steps 
in from the moonlit 'balcony and says, "Boy, 
I can tell you everything." 

And we have Holy rood in 1566, Mary's 
room in the palace with Mary Beaton, Riccio, 
Darnley and Bothwell, an imposing and mov- 
ing bit of drama. It is as the words of 
Andrew Boyd had prefigured it, 

"Down there at Holyrood. Look, in the moon- 
light. A woman of great wit Margaret is that too. 
And nothing better coming to her than a scented 
pimp, a callow fool, and a bully. They should have 
been three great princes, masters of men." 

Or, as Mary's song 'had it, 

"Not Riccio, nor Darnley knew 
Nor Bothwell how to find 

This Mary's best magnificence 
Of the great lover's mind." 

Wihether or not this appealing glimpse of 
the beautiful Scottish Queen helps John 
Hunter to a solution of his problem may re- 
main to some a question. Are we likely to 
accord to the Margaret Hunters of our day 
the sympathy and understanding we feel for 
Mary Stuart and her tragedy? After all, she 
was unique. And fate cursed her with being 
a Queen. Margaret Haskctt Anderson.

It Might Have Happened to Yon. By Coninys- 
by Dawson. 163 p. 6* Lane $1.25 

READ it. Don't think it's a war book. 
It's u a contemporary portrait of central 
and eastern Europe/' as the sub-title puts 
it. It shows, not what war has done to Eu- 
rope, but what peace has done to her. 

All the power of the trained novelist has 
gone into this small book. With the poignancy 
of utter simplicity Mr. Dawson shows us how 
Austria and Poland are suffering how faint 
old women wash clothes all day to earn the 
equivalent of five cents in American money, 
how whole communities live foully in freight 
cars, how children starve. It is everyone's 
duty to learn about these things. 

Mr. Dawson doesn't stop with the picture. 
He has a great deal to say about the causes 
of the present situation, and some remedies to 
suggest. As an example of what the well- 
meaning, hurried Peace Conference did, he 
points to Vienna. This "great pre-war middle- 
man city of central Europe now. stands iso- 
lated and unself -supporting in the scrubby 
patch of tillage which is the new Austria. 
. . . But the railroads still converge on 

For the present all we can do is to send 
money. And if we refuse "Central Europe 
at the moment is insane with hunger. She is 
capable of any folly. She is scarcely to be 
held accountable for her actions. If she is not 
fed, revolution will spring up in every direc- 
tion and no one can say where it will end."

Things That Have Interested Me. B\ Arnold 
Bennett. 332 p. O Dor an $2.50 

IF any gentle reader could have the good 
fortune to meet the versatile author of this 
book on a London street and ask htm to 
tea in the lounge of the Savoy, Mr. Bennett 
would probably talk on just the themes and 
in just the way that he does in these pages 
untrammeled, sporadic, informal and very at- 
tractive because so purely from the personal 
point of view. They are not epoch-making, 
these sketches, being records of passing tyioods 
and impressions rather than essays of the 
regular six-by-nine type. There is a bit of 
overhead conversation, a witty story, a passing 
figure on the street, a group at a railway sta- 
tion, a notice in a newspaper each producing 
its quick, clever reaction from the trained 
mind of one who is both novelist and dramatist, 
a connoisseur in human values. Many of the 
moods arc- such as "never can happen again," 
for they bear the dates of 1917 and 18, and 
show the mark of their contemporaneity in 
recording some phases of war feeling from the 

London point of view, with more than a dash 
of the journalistic in their touch-and-go treat- 
ment. In others, the impressions are more 
permanent in value, and treat crisply and 
critically of the drama, literature and life. A 
.particularly good word picture is "The Prize 
Fight," describing Carpentier's victory over 
the British champion and its effect on the all- 
class spectators. And at the close of the 
pleasant series one can almost see the urbane 
man of letters toss away his cigarette end, lift 
his hat and disappear down the street after a 
discursive chat. Katharine Perry Shaw. 


Psychoanalysis, Sleep and Dreams. By Andre 
T rid on. 157 />. 3^ p. bibl. D Knopf $2 

NOT so long ago we were all out for 
reforming the world. Maybe we got 
discouraged or maybe we got a different 
viewpoint. Anyway most of us are now em- 
ployed in removing motes from our eyes, and 
many of us get up and cheer whenever we 
hear the name Sigmund Freud. Dr. Freud 
discovered that nothing just happens in the 
emotions any more than in the physical world 
He found that the explanation of human be- 
havior lies in the influence of more or less 
forgotten, experiences, thoughts and emotions. 
From this discovery he deduced the theory 
that if you find out what is in your uncon- 
scious mind ("forgettery" is the colloquial 
equivalent) you will have the causes under- 
lying your every action. Even dreams. 

A child dreams frequently of what it wants 
but can't have a mountain of candy, the 
circus, a big dog. Older people, too, dream 
of what they want but cannot have. "When 
dreams come true/' is based on this common 
knowledge. But very, very often we want 
something that conflicts with our ethical 
standards. We repress that desire sternly. 
When that banned wish appears in dreams, 
it comes out in disguise. The psychoanalysts 
have learned how to strip off the disguises 
and show the dreamer what repressed wish 
is cavorting round in his brain at night.. The 
object of the investigation is to give us in- 
sight into our unconscious mind, and by so 
doing give us at the same time control over 
our lives. So long as we are subject to an 
influence we do not understand we are not 
absolutely captains of our souls. 

Andre Tridon has explained the relation 
of the unconscious to sleep and dreams very 
clearly in this book with illustrative dreams 
from people he has analyzed. We are under 
great obligation to Mr. Tridon because he 
writes, not for the scientists who already un- 
derstands the subject, but for the layman who 
wants to understand.

Avon's Hawcst. By Edwin .Irliin/ton Robin- 
son. 65 p. D Macm. $1.50 

THERE are a score of interpretations 
that readers may severally put upon this 
grim, haunting poem. Taken most liter-, 
ally it is the confession of a fear-ridden soul, 
a life blackened by a malignant hate con- 
ceived in boyhood for a school companion, 
and secretly brooded over. Then suddenly, 
one day, hate burst its bounds, struck down 
the other boy, and thereby made a life-long, 
implacable enemy. And in the end that ene- 
my, drowned and lying fathoms deep at sea, 
comes back, or so the haunted man believes, 
and after months of hideous, creeping fear 
the shadows close in and the victim dies, 
baffling diagnosis by physicians. 

This bare outline gives but a feeble hint 
of the latent horror suggested in this verse. 
The scourge of fear, sharpened by the super- 
natural, is a common motive in classic trag- 
edy. But there is a vast difference, more 
easily felt than denned, between, let us say, 
the high intellectual interpretation of Mac- 
beth in the dagger scene, and the gripping 
emotional horror of the death scene in "The 
Bells." "Avon's Harvest" has just that added 
twist of the screw that makes a sane, well- 
balanced materialist glance furtively over his 
shoulder while he reads, and start nervously 
as the rustling of the pages that he himself 
is turning. 

Yes, each reader is welcome to his own 
interpretation. But one inclines to the theory 
; that this is an allegory of an evil habit. The 
habit comes unsought in youth, and plays the 
part of a welcome and faithful friend; but 
when recognized for what it is ; when beaten 
off, challenged and defied, it becomes the 
arch enemy, dogging the victim's footstep's 
waiting like a coiled serpent to strike and 
kill. . All this may be utterly remote from 
Mr. Robinson's intention. Perhaps he only 
meant that hatred is itself a poison which 
corrodes until the thread of life snaps. In 
either case he has woven lines of lingering, 
haunting horror; and he is at his best when 
he is most simple. The powerful, memorable 
lines are almost monosyllabic. It is only 
here and there that the elaborate intellectu- 
ality of such phrases as, "The darkness and 
discomforture of his oblique rebuff," or 
"Adorning an unfortified assumption with 
^old that might come off with afterthought," 
however admirable in themselves, are not in 
harmony with the poem's prevailing mood. 
But these are mere details. The salient fact 
is, that the author has poured the molten 
gold of artistry into the mould of a masterly 
and unforgettable gargoyle of symbolism.

The Life of Whitclaw Reid. Hy Royal Cor- 
lissoz. 2 v. 434 p. Scrih. $10 

THE importance of this biography is not 
to be measured by the personal achieve- 
ments of an individual career, even tho 
the subject was a veteran journalist and edi- 
tor, who for half a century moulded public 
opinion, and twice represented America in 
the highest diplomatic posts within the gift 
of the President, as Minister to France and 
as ^Ambassador to the Court of St. James. 
It is more than a biography, because it is 
practically a history of the New York 
Tribune, for fifty years the leading Republi- 
can organ. Furthermore, it is a history of 
the changing political drama of the nation, 
from the Civil War and Reconstruction Period 
down to the time when America took her 
place as a recognized world power our po- 
litical drama seen, not from the orchestra 
seats, but from the wings, so to speak,_ be- 
hind the scenes, where the tinsel and the 
masquerade, are seen at more nearly their 
true value. 

To the younger generation, who know the 
greater part of this period thru the medium 
of printed histories, these pages will serve 
the purpose of galvanizing dry statistics into 
'action and awakening a vanished past into 
a dramatic moving picture. To the older 
readers, to whom the Grant administrations 
are a personal memory and who perthaps cast 
their first vote for Hayes or for Tilden, 
these two volumes are like a prolonged and 
delightful reminiscence with some one vastly 
better informed and- of clearer memory, 
whose details fill in an infinite number of 
precious and luminous details, as to the hopes 
and fears, the motives and the limitations, 
of the political and intellectual giants who 
moulded the nation's destinies. 

Mr. Cortissoz has executed a task of great 
difficulty with infinite patience, industry and 
discrimination. With the instinct of a 
trained journalist himself, he has wisely rec- 
ognized that here was not a case for a parti- 
sanship biography, an openly enthusiastic and 
highly colored narrative. While not disguis- 
ing his personal friendship and approval, he 
has consistently contented himself with sift- 
ing out from an overwhelming mass of mate- 
rial just those salient details that have a 
.permanent significance. 

This is clearly one of the most, if not the 
most, significant of this present season's biog- 
raphies. It is not too much to say that any 
student of American history who omits it 
from his studies has lost some side glimpses 
that make his otherwise well rounded read- 
ing just so much the poorer and more incom-

The Children's Page 

Edited by Rebecca Deming Moore 

OF the spring juveniles which have al- 
ready seen the light several are appro- 
riately nature books. So prominent a 
name in the nature world as that of Ernest 
Thompson Seton appears under the title of 
"Woodland Tales" (Doubleday), a miscellany 
of material published in periodicals for the most 
part in the course of a long stretch of years. 
The material has been classified as Things to 
See In the Springtime Summertime Autumn- 
time Wintertime ; Things To Know ; Things 
To Do ; and Things to Remember. With the 
-exception of Things To Do, a chapter on 
woodcraft, the stories are a combination of 
fact and fancy. The fairy and fantastic ele- 
ment is strong, but each story has for its 
foundation some nature truth. 

Thornton Burgess' method of concocting 
irresistible little tales which have taken the 
tears away from many a bedtime hour is too 
well known to require comment. His latest 
and the first in the Green Forest Series, 
"Lightfoot the Deer" (Little, Brown), tells 
children of the habits of this gentle creature 
and plants little seeds of disapproval for un- 
necessary hunting. 

"Bird Stories" (Atlantic) by Edith Patch, 
following her "Hexapod Stories" in the Gate- 
way to Science Series steers a middle course 
between Mr. Seton's and Mr. Burgess' books. 
These are delightful little stories of Chick, 
.D. D., Sandy, the Sandpiper, etc., each re- 
lating the life history of a little bird person 
from the time he breaks his shell until he and 
his mate have a brood of their own. Miss Patch 
makes characters of her birds, but she does not 
give them human attributes. Here is straight 
science with no touch of the fanciful or fairy 
element but so pleasingly and convincingly pre- 
sented that neither will be missed. 

Alice Craig Edgerton's "Queen Nature's 
Fairy Helpers (Noble) explains physical laws 
thru the medium of quasi-fairy tales. 

The theme of Joslyn Gray's new book for 
girls, "Bouncing Bet" (Scribner) is that trag- 
edy of adolescence, "not like other girls." The 
heroine's abnormality in this case was being 
several sizes too large for thirteen-going-on 
fourteen. How Bouncing Bet became like other 
girls, and very much nicer and prettier than 
some, how a miserable misunderstanding 
growing out of an attempt to help an afflicted 
classmate was adjusted, and all brought to a 
happy climax makes an absorbing story for 
'teen age girls. 

Equally interesting for their brothers is 
Ralph Henry Barbour's "Three Base Benson" 

(Appleton), another excellent blend of school 
and sport. The square peg in this story is a 
genial but uncouth North Carolina lad in the 
round hole of an exclusive "prep" school. Mr. 
Barbour attends skilfully to the trimming of 
Benson's corners, at the same time serving 
bountiful portions of adventure and baseball 
sure to appeal to boyish appetites. 




Little, Brown & Company 

Somewhat suggestive of the charming French 
story "Sans Famille" is "Billie : The Story of a 
Little Boy and a Big Bear" by Isabel Hawley 
Scott (Revell). The hero is a little lame Ital- 
ian orphan who joins fortunes with a travel- 
ing bear and his master. On the road of 
Angelo's adventures children cannot fail to 
absorb some lessons of consideration for

spring, Dasent's "East of the Sun and West 
o' the Moon" (McKay), in the Golden Books

[HIS book on Einstein's Theories, written by up- 
ward of seventy-five of the best qualified authors 
in the world, may well take rank as the final word 
on the subject. Certainly it stands out far above any- 
thing that has yet appeared. 

It is a symposium of the views of seventy-five writers 
collected from the three hundred essays submitted. 

One's expectation would doubtless be that a book of 
this character, consisting of separate contributions from 
a number of writers, would be quite lacking in unity, 
and that this feature might well be so prominent as to 
make its reading a rather painful process. A studied 
and altogether successful effort has been made to avoid this defect, 
and the book in fact runs along quite as smoothly as though the work of a 
single author, while presenting a breadth of vision and a range of 
viewpoint which it would not by any means be possible for a single author 
to attain. 

The trade should stock this book at once as 
it is a great seller and will be well advertised.

and the judg- 
ment of a large 
part of the trade, is 
any basis for prophecy, 
by Florence Bingham Living- 
ston will be one of the biggest of 
the year's best-sellers. All the signs 
point in that direction. It is a cheerful 
and refreshing narrative, conveying a 
philosophy and humor of life both comfort- 
ing and gladdening. The Custard Cup from 
which the novel takes its title is a tumbledown 
tenement set in the outskirts of a California city where 
live Penzie (Mrs. Penfield) and Crink and Lettie and 
Thad among neighbors of friendly and homely interests, 
a little cul-de-sac of humanity where the oddest, sweetest, most 
comic bits of mankind have been blown by chance and misfortune. 


You will find Penzie to be a delightful combination of Mrs. 
Wiggs, Pollyanna and David Harum. The story itself, 
though it has to do directly with the struggle of these 
four to live on nothing a year, has besides a charm- 
ing love story and a mystery which adds zest to 
the very last page. A large order? Perhaps. 
But read THE CUSTARD CUP and you 
will agree; and you will urge every one 
of your customers to get acquainted 
with Penzie. There is something 
about the humorous wisdom 
of the Custard Cup philoso- 
phy that gets a grip on 
the heart while it 
amuses, some- 
thing that has 
flavor all 
its own.

The Task of the Leaders 

L\BOR leaders are probably correct in 
estimating that part of the call for an 
open shop in the discussion of the last 
year has been directed by those who want to 
see the abolition of unions, but they should 
not lose sight of the fact that this group has 
been augmented by newer advocates of the 
open shop whose attitude is not so much a 
distrust of the unions as it is a feeling that 
no answer can be found to the present trade 
predicaments except by announcing open 
shop. The mental attitude of this second 
group has been brought to its present angle 
because the leaders of the unions have been 
generals who could lead an advance but 
seemed to have no power in holding up the 
morale of their armies in the face of re- 
treat. In days of steadily advancing wages 
there has been developed a leader whose 
proud boast is that he never makes a com- 
promise, and now when compromise would 
be the road to readjustment he feels that he 
cannot hold his leadership if he reports a 
ngle lowering in the scale of wages. 
In the printing arbitration now going on 
in New York under an agreement that pro- 
vided for a change in the wage scale accord- 
ing to changes in the : post of living, the union 
leaders are arguing that no downward change 
can be made until the men obtain the scale 
which they designate as the American stand- 
ard of living. To be sure, the press feeders 
who hold this line of argument are being 
paid a minimum scale of wage that is higher 
than the average given to American teachers 
or American preachers or similar profes- 
sional workers thruout the country; and 
when so large a proportion of the people, 
whose training has required decidedly more 

time and effort than that of a press-feeder, 
are getting a smaller wage, it seems fruit- 
less tactics to put this argument forward in 
the face of the very apparent fact that the 
cost of living has gone down radically. 

The same lack of leadership has brought 
about the closing of the New York binderies 
and the employers' determination on an open 
shop. The employers' labor committee up to 
two weeks before felt that it would make 
every effort to deal in the accustomed chan- 
nels with the union leaders. It found, how- 
ever, that its approaches were sharply re- 
buffed, and, altho the binding business was 
going steadily from the city, the leaders of 
the men had no other comment to offer than 
that there should be absolutely no reduction 
considered and no changes in shop methods. 
It is this stand that plays into the hands of 
those who believe in no unions, and the bet- 
ter poised workers ought to put their most 
level-headed leaders to the front at this 

A Painful Memory 

DURING the last part of March a de- 
cision was rendered by a jury in the 
Federal District court, awarding R. H. 
Macy & Company damages of $49,000 in a suit 
brought against the Victor Talking Machine 
Company for damages resulting from alleged 
violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust Law. 
Under the Sherman Law this award will be 
trebled, and the attorney's fees have been esti- 
mated to amount to about $50,000. Charles 
Evans Hughes was counsel for the defense. 
The verdict has been appealed. It was the 
contention of Macy that the Victor Company 
woulcj not allow its distributors to sell Macy 
records from 1914 to 1917. 

Such a decision naturally catches the eyes of 
anyone in the book-trade, as this case began in 
the same year that the case against the old 
American Publishers' Association was settled, 
and it seems to be running to about the same 
money total. That famous book-trade case ex- 
tended over thirteen years and was started im- 
mediately after the introduction of the net 
price system by the American publishers. At 
the time the suit was closed the PUBLISHERS' 
WEEKLY said editorially 'The long concerted 
action necessitated by this suit has brought to 
the book-trade a knowledge that net r. rices, 
maintained not by coercion but by individual 
choice, brings trade solidarity and makes 
prosperity, if not probable, at least possible. 


The Publishers' Weekly 

and it has brought a realization that unwar- 
ranted cut prices are a stupendous merchan- 
dising blunder, if not actually immoral or il- 

That famous case was carried thru by the 
publishers to their great financial loss, but to 
the great gain in the improvement of book dis- 
tribution in the country. It is not too much to 
say that the generally improved state of book 
ownership and reading thru wider distribution 
would be far behind what it is to-day if that 
effort had not been made. The reason that the 
present continuance of the Macy cutting does 
not demoralize the book-trade is the result of 
the educational work of that campaign. 

It has been clearly evidenced that all mer- 
chandise bearing an advertised retail price has 
a peculiar temptation to the price-cutter, as 
it is only on these goods that the public can 
estimate the reality of reductions advertised. 
As one of the Macy advertisements at that time 
read : 

"When our competitors are confronted 
with the fact that our prices are lower than 
theirs, they invariably try to explain the 
matter by attacking the character of our 
goods. How about books ? Our prices 
range from IDC. to $1.50 less than others ask 
for the same book. We save you as much 
in other lines." 

This kind of advertising was typical of what 
the book-trade saw much of in the days of 
the suit, and it is just as true to-day that the 
cutting is done for the purpose of indicating- 
lower rates in other departments. Books carry 
less gross margin than most lines in department 
stores, and therefore the cutting of the price 
is not because of any unfair margins of profit, 
as was claimed by Macy's lawyer in his argu- 

Said Mr. Hurley, when Chairman of the 
Federal Trade Commission and in possession 
of the facts, "Price-cutters are the wolves of 
industries. They are not fair to their custom- 
ers or to their stockholders, unfair to their 
employees and injurious and harmful to their 
competitors and the trade they are in." 

The progress in the healthy distribution at 
the present lies in the fact that this principle 
has become so clearly understood by the larger 
visioned merchants of the country that the 
discounts offered by one or two stores do not 
s'hake their faith in the methods that they have 
adopted for their own stores. 

The book-trade will watch with interest the 
further progress of the Victor suit, and also 

the bringing forward to the new Congress of 
the Stephens Bill at Washington, which has 
been approved by so large a number of stu- 
dents of business affairs and sound trading.

The Newspaper and Book Advertising 

By F. Guy Davis 

Manager of the American Newspaper Advertising Association 

[The following is a somewhat condensed form of 
talk delivered before the Booksellers' Association 
Chicago, April 4th.] 

INCLAIR Lewis is reported to have said to 
a Chicago audience recently that for every 
man in America who could turn out really 
literature there were five hundred men in 
igland who coukl do the same. Whether 
>r not this statement is correct, it gives one 
)mething to think about and my own fear 
that there is more truth in the observation 
lan there should be. The English people 
lave imagination. They are' accustomed to 
linking in large terms. They generally have 
ability to put themselves in the other fel- 
)w's place. This national characteristic will, 
doubt, explain achievements of British 
liplomacy in the past few decades. 

Americans Provincial 

There is, of course, an explanation and a 
*ason for the broad British point of view. In 
icir trade developments and in fact in the 
fhole history of their business and commerce 
in important factor has been the considera- 
tion of the thought and habits oT~other peo- 
ple, and while John Bull has his limitations, 
it seems pretty generally and fairly conceded 
that on the whole his children are "grown 
up" in an educational sense. They know life 
and they know the world. 

English literature has no doubt played its 
important part in the education o/f the Eng- 
lishman. No doubt also the literature and 
the culture of the Englishman, generally 
speaking, is as much a product of his habits 
of life and thought as it is a cause, but at 
any rate the books which the Englishman 
reads are a part at least of the cause of his 
comprehension of big things. 

America seems to me to be making slow 
progress in the matter of general education 
in a fundamental sense. By this I mean that 
the American as a whole is lacking in imag- 
ination. We are provincial. We' think too 
much in terms of routine life, and about con- 
crete objectives. There are important ex- 
ceptions, of course, which I readily concede, 
but on the whole I think there is a tremendous 
possibility for sound; creative effort on the 
field of education here in America, the kind 
of education that will make us broader and 
deeper and richer in head and heart alike. 

I would like to make it clear that I do not 
refer to our public schools, tho there is field 
for improvement even there. I do have in 
mind, however, the general antipathy of the 
American to new ideas and observations 
which are outside of the range of his own 
particular experience. I think that this ex- 
plains in a substantial way why the average 
American is more upset over original thought, 
particularly in the field of politics or sociology, 

than a good many other nationalities. I am 
not confining my observations to any one 
type of American, but in general I have in 
mind the business man arid just at the mo- 
ment I have in mind particularly American 
publishers and sellers of books. 

It seems to me that there is a great field 
here in America for development of the book 
business. I am sure that Americans generally 
need more good books, books of such a char- 
acter that they will present in terms of sym- 
pathy and understanding, unconventional 
points of view. In other words, we need to 
have pur habits of thought softened so that 
we will be perhaps a little less inclined to 
want to see a man horsewhipped and thrown 
into jail because his views on certain mat- 
ters differ from the views generally accepted. 
What I have in mind is the old question of 
more light and perhaps less heat, in a great 
many fields of thought and purpose. This 
may mean here and there an advance in a 
purely business way, but it is sure to mean 
a fuller and richer and deeper life generally, 
even if business is left untouched. 

If this statement o<f the educational situ- 
ation here in America strikes you as reason- 
able, the immediate question before you who 
are interested in the publication and sale of 
books is as to whether you are satisfied with 
the situation as it stands in your business. 

There are a good many splendid people who 
do not believe in selling at all in the sense 
in which the term is known in modern mer- 
chandising; that is, they do not believe in 
aggressive selling. They believe in supply- 
ing such demand as develops spontaneously 
or^ already exists. Those of you who are in 
this particular current of feeling will not be 
interested in what I Tiave to say to you about 
newspaper advertising, but my hope is that 
there may be among you some men who have 
the characteristic American business man's 
attitude toward the question of selling. 

Americans Need More Books 
The average business man's attitude is that 
there is in his goods salvation for the pur- 
chaser, and like salvation, they have to be 
forced on some people. I do not believe that 
this feeling is very general among book pub- 
lishers or retailers, but generally the American 
Sfoes after what he wants. He makes a noise. 
He practices the principle which he learned 
on the farm, that is, that the squeaky wheel 
gets the grease. Nobody can accuse the Ameri- 
can of being backward when it comes to the 
question of selling his goods to the home mar- 
ket. In fact, the science of merchandising has 
been developed to a high point here in America. 
On the general question of advertising, in par- 
ticular, the American is a champion performer. 
However, books have not been aggressively 


The Publishers' Weekly 

advertised. There are exceptions, of course, 
like the "Encyclopedia Britannica," "Five-Foot 
Book Shelf," and an occasional offering of a 
deac| writer's complete works, or a new Harold 
Bell Wright book, but nothing really big in 
the modern advertising sense, except the "En- 
cyclopedia Britannica," which is not a book. 

I have a feeling that you will unquestionably 
concede the existence of a need in American 
life for more and better 'books. Some of you 
will also feel that you want to reach out ag- 
gressively to make people generally appreciate 
this need so that the market for books may 
be developed. The whole question of mer- 
chandising comes up then in a perfectly natural 
way. You want to sell more books for two 
reasons: one, because Americans need them, 
and, second, you need the business. Or those 
who are individualists will reverse the order 
of these two points, but in any case the ques- 
tion comes up as to whether the appreciation 
of this need for good books can be stimulated 
and as to how to do the development work. 

Frankly, it seems to me that it is up to the 
book publishers. Pretty generally they are 
the ones who have the capital and the organiza- 
tion and facilities to undertake development 
work as compared with those in other branches 
of the book business. I have been told .that 
the question of a co-operative educational cam- 
paign to be participated in by all the different 
groups represented in the business ^ has been 
considered in a large way and it is interesting 
to know that at the present time there is in 
many fields a very substantial movement to- 
ward these co-operative educational activities 
looking to the development of better business. 

Cooperative Advertising 

The Portland Cement Association, for in- 
stance, selling no cement whatever but inter- 
ested only in the extension of the knowledge 
of the value and the uses to which cement can 
be put, has within the past month released a 
campaign which covers sixty-five important 
cities of the United States. The Motorcycle 
and Allied Trades Association are within the 
next few days releasing a similar campaign on 
the advantages of motorcycling. The lumber 
manufacturers of the country are considering a 
similar project and so are the big furni- 
ture groups; same with the brick manu- 
facturers, bankers, grapefruit and citrus grow- 
ers. The furniture people have in mind a 
comprehensive proposition to resell the 
American home to the American peo- 
ple and there are other similar activi- 
ties under consideration in other lines. All of 
this suggests what is actually being under- 
taken, but however the question of a general 
educational campaign on books is approached, 
there is absolutely no question about the power 
of advertising. Advertising is just like electric 
current. You can buy as much of it as you 
can use, but the use to which you put it is not 
determined by the publishers of newspapers ^or 
magazines, as long as your purposes are legiti- 
mate. The newspaper has for sale in its ad- 
vertising columns a merchandising service, 

something like the mail service or even like 
the railroads, and it plays its important part in 
the efficient movement of goods from producer 
to consumer. 

A Newspaper Campaign 

I feel that one of the reasons why books are 
not more popular in America is to be found in 
the fact that the national magazines are so ex- 
tensively advertised. Incidentally, they are ex- 
tensively advertised in the newspapers, the 
newspapers being the reading matter which 
reaches everyone who reads almost without ex- 
ception. I was looking over the figures on one 
of the Chicago papers recently and noticed 
that in the year of 1919 well over $200,000 was 
spent in this one paper for magazine adver- 
tising alone. The question comes up then as 
to whether it is worth-while for those inter- 
ested in the sale of books to consider more 
extensive use of paid space, not only to sell 
books directly, but to widen the market 
for books generally. I think in this connection 
that booksellers would be particularly in- 
terested in the story of the great campaign of 
newspaper advertising conducted by the Liter- 
ary Digest. The Literary Digest, in its cam- 
paign which has utilized newspaper space, 
settled on 680 lines of space for the regular 
copy in the daily papers as being the most 
effective, for this would give sufficient space 
on the page to dominate the page, and the 
headline would come over the center fold of 
the newspaper. This campaign runs in 400 
daily papers once a week, supplemented by 
copy in full pages, which usually run about 
three times a year in 100 to 400 of the largest 
dailies. "So far," says the Literary Digest, 
"we have increased the reader interest proved 
by tests. We have increased the number of 
readers per copy proved by test. We have 
increased our circulation from 450,000 in 1916, 
to 1,336,999 in 1920. We have increased our 
gross revenue since the advertising campaign 
started by over 360%. We have added to the 
prestige of the Literary Digest we feel it 
every day. We have increased our potential 
market from 2,500,000 to 13,000,000. We started 
with six objectives. We have reached all six." 

There is a feeling among many newspaper 
men that book publishers are too much inter- 
ested in the importance of book reviews in the 
newspapers, and this in spite of the fact that 
many publishers have book review pages on 
certain days. I think the .thought is that the 
readers of book review pages generally speak- 
ing are already readers of books, and while 
there is a possible criticism of the publisher 
or a book seller who uses space on the literary 
page with the thought that he may possibly 
influence the book reviews on similar subse- 
quent pages, there is also a feeling that the 
book seller who limits his advertising work 
to this consideration is indeed a little man in 
a business sense. In other words, the question 
is one of widening and deepening the market, 
as the Literary Diqest did in its big campaign 
and this seems to me to be the only point at 
which I may possibly be able to say anything 

Ipril 23, 1921 


it may be really helpful to you. I do not 
>w the book business, tho I love books, but 
experience with newspaper advertising, 
>vering a period of nearly twenty years, tells 
le that the power of newspaper advertising 
in be used to develop the book market in this 
>untry or in this city as it has been used to 
;lop many another proposition in a really 
big and generally helpful way. 
When it comes to the question of influencing 
>pular favor in any direction whatsoever, the 
reat outstanding, overtowering single factor is 
ic daily newspaper. This is conceded almost 
liversally. Politicians know this well. The 
>ress agents all over the country know it and 
would be astonishing to a great many book- 
jllers to know what a tremendous industry the 
>ress agent industry is, entirely outside of poli- 
tics and movie stars. Fortunately for the news- 
ipers and fortunately for the public, too, in 
me respects, the press agent is not today the 
ictor which he used to be. In other words, 
ic tendency is more and more toward good, 
traight, clean, legitimate news and editorial 
comment, and paid space, which is equally 
clean and legitimate. 

Summarizing briefly, I would say that I 

think America wants more books and that the 
future years will crystallize this feeling. 
America's interest in world trade and world 
thought is bound to grow keener irrespective 
of any purely political developments. As the 
financial power of the world,, there is no escape 
for us. Books on travel alone are sure to grow 
more popular. But good novels of current 
life and published dramas will be in increasing 
demand, for we will want to know ourselves. 
Second, booksellers want more business, gen- 
erally speaking. Those two facts, plus the 
power of newspaper advertising, will give a 
development which from every possible point 
of view is as desirable as it is healthy and 
sound and enlightening, not to mention the 
importance from a business point of view to 
those immediately interested in the production 
and sale of books. As a good American who 
loves America and knows something of its 
need and who also knows the broadening and 
character-building effect of contact with good 
literature, I most seriously urge you to give 
this question of advertising more thought than 
I believe it has yet received at your hands. 
There will be something- in it for you, and 
much in it for the countrv as a whole. 

The Cost of Importing English Books 

OOKS of prominence first published in 
, Great Britain are usually remanufactured 
here for the American market in order to 
obtain copyright. Many titles, however, on 
which there promises to be only small circula- 
tion are brought over in the English edition in 
quantities from 200 copies up. When the 
American importer lists this book for Ameri- 
can sale he bases his price on the English 
price plus the special cost that will naturally 
accrue in handling merchandise^ in small lots. 
As public libraries can bring in books duty 
free, they usually, in ordering, furnish the 
' iport ag'ent with the necessary Custom House 
3cuments in order that their copies may be 
ssed thru without the 15% duty. Some few 
uuokstores fill their own special orders for 
newly announced English books by bringing in 
their own copies by mail and paying the duty. 
For many years there was a general use of 
4oc. to the shilling as a T)asis for pricing 
small imported lots of English books, with 
lower prices according to the quantity ^ im- 
ported, as a larger quantity gave the publisher 
lower purchase price in England. Sometimes 
this list price was as low as 25c. to the 

The question is now frequently asked in the 
trade whether the low rate of exchange should 
not bring a reduction in the average price on 
importations, especially when it is considered 
that the duty on books less than twenty years 
old is now" 15%, while it was at one time 
25%. Several things entered into the import- 
ing conditions, according to inquiries at Ameri- 
can publishing offices, which have prevented' 
these changes in exchange and tariff from 
having the expected effect on price levels. 

While custom duties have gone down in per- 
centage, they have in actual practice been kept 
at the old level, because of the Custom House 
rulings that have decreed that the 15% duty 
shall be leveled on an assumed English whole- 
sale price instead of on the actual price that 
the American importer has paid; for instance, 
if a publisher bought the American market on 
a 6 shilling book by taking 500 copies at 2 
shillings each, he would not, as would seem 
most natural, pay duty on 2 shillings a copy, 
'but would pay 15% on 4 shillings, as the cus- 
toms officials rule that duty shall be leveled on 
what is a wholesale London rate. This has 
offset and even increased the actual amount of 
duty paid per book over the old 25% rate. 
Another item to be considered is the fact that 
English publishers, under the pressure of their 
increasing production costs, have been steadily 
increasing their required price per shilling for 
exported editions. These increasing costs, 
which have been even heavier in percentage in 
England than here, have gradually pared down 
the margin of operation which the English 
publisher has, and, while he has not been able 
to pass all . this percentage of increase 
into his list prices, he has claimed that he has 
been obliged to make it show in his selling of 
editions for export. 

Besides these two elements, there has been 
a great increase in the cost of getting books to 
this country. Freight rates are about three 
times what they were before the war, and in- 
surance has increased in proportion. English 
handling of shipments has gone up tremend- 
ously, and their packing cases three to four 
times the cost of the charges in former days. 
One publisher recently received a packing case 

I2 5 8 

bill, showing charges of 315. 6d., when a 
similar case previously had been 7s. 6d. 

These different items have in total offset the 
saving made by tariff and exchange, and retail 
booksellers have been accepting the prices set 
on such titles, knowing that English prices 
must have advanced even more than our own, 

The Publishers' Weekly 

faced as they are with a general merchandise 
level that went many points beyond our own 
recorded index figures. These radical changes 
have perhaps pressed not so strongly on the 
library importer, as he is at all times saved 
the tariff cost which the retail bookseller can- 
not escape.

When the Book-Trade 
Gets Together 

Atlantic City May 10, n, 12 

FULL announcements as to the 
plans and program for the big 
Atlantic City convention on May 
ioth-i2th have been sent out by the 
Publicity Committee, and already 
there are indications that the at- 
tendance will be unusual. 

No feature of the arrangements 
has, perhaps, been happier than the 
plan to bring all attending under 
one roof, which was the feature that 
really carried the vote in favor of 
Atlantic City at the time of last 
year's convention. In spite of the 
splendid working arrangements that 
have been developed in the recent 
big city conventions, it was feft by 
many that there would be a great 
advantage in the general convention 
spirit if all could be gathered in one 
hotel, which would not be possible 
in the big cities. Not the least valu- 
able part of the conventions is the 
casual and informal conferences be- 
tween one bookseller and another, 
and these conferences most naturally 
come about between the general ses- 
sions or at informal meals together. 
By having a large proportion of the 
registration at the Hotel Traymore, 
the personal gain from new contacts 
and informal discussions can be 
greatly increased. 

Especially will this be so under 
the splendid arrangements that have 
been made with the hotel. It is 
fortunate that May is the conven- 
tion month, as in no other month in 
the year would it have been possible 
to arrange for such complete accommoda- 
tions as the Traymore has given, a conven- 
tion hall on a quiet upper floor, committee 
rooms with every convenience that a con- 
vention could desire. Besides this, the 
Traymore has given rates for the con- 
vention people that will not bring the 
cost above the cost incurred in any large city 
hotel, European plan from $4 to $5 per person 
per day, and on the American plan, $9 to $10 
a day. When the cost of good hotel meals is 
reckoned, the latter figure, it will be seen, is 
moderate, and the cuisine of the Traymore is 

There has been a broadening of the charac- 
ter of the convention in the last few years, 
and, besides booksellers and publishers, there 
will be literary editors, librarians and book 
lovers, who are working to foster the love of 
reading and the ownership of books. 

Late reports on the paper mill situation in- 
dicate that the mills may be closed by strike

The Publishers' Weekly 

A Campaign Magnificent 

A CAMPAIGN that assumes truly mag- 
nificent proportions is that with which the 
Curtis Publishing Company is to con- 
nect the Country Gentleman and Zane Grey's 
popularity. The book-trade has always quoted 
with awe and respect the figures that come 
forward from Washington Square, but it is 
not common for the publicity campaigns which 
are launched from that energetic organization 
to have any very definite connection with the 
(Distribution of books. This time, however, it 
is book popularity which is to be tapped by 
the Curtis Company to increase the popularity 
of a periodical. 

In the issue of May 28th of the Country 
Gentleman there is to appear the first install- 
ment of a new Zane Grey story that is to run 
for twelve weeks. The present circulation of 
the Country Gentleman is 900,000, and the 
Curtis Company believe that they are going to 
increase the circulation of this third child of 
theirs by aBout a quarter million on account of 
Zane Grey's popularity. This is certainly a 
testimonial to what Harper and Grosset and 
Dunlap have done in popularizing these west- 
ern stories. 

The unusual feature of their campaign is 
this : In the Saturday Evening Post of the 
same week, which goes onto the neswsstands 
on Thursday, May 26th, there is to be carried 
in every one of its 2,400,000 circulation a re- 
print of this first installment. This does not 
mean that the story is to continue in the Sat- 
urday Evening Post, but readers are referred 
to the Country Gentleman of the next week 
if they would like to keep on with the story. 
At the same time, in the Ladies' Plome Journal 
in its newsstand; circulation, which runs well 
over 1,000,000, there will be inserted a reprint 
of the same installment. If, as experts figure, 
there are about five readers to every copy of a 
popular magazine, this seems to indicate that 
about 20,000,000 people will have the name of 
Zane Grey blazed before their eyes during that 
week, and, altho these figures sound large 
enough to the book-trade who are willing to 
talk in terms of tens of thousands, this is not 
the end of the publicity. 

There will also be released during that week 
a new film from Zane Grey's "Man of the 
Forest," and to those houses in which this is 
shown there will be distributed reprints of this 
first installment for general circulation. Be- 
sides this, movie people are to make a general 
campaign to get display of four other pre- 
vious Zane Grey films under the general pub- 
licity of Zane Grey Week. 

It is under such tremendous campaigns as 
this that the Zane Grey book publishers move 
forward to secure for the book-trade adequate 
results from the big general event. Harper, of 
course, has already a wide distribution for 
Zane Grey's January book, "The Mysterious 
Rider," and will connect this publicity with 
next January's publication of "To the Last 
Man" in book form. In the meantime, Grosset 
and Dunlap, co-operating with Harper, are 
outlining to dealers thruout the country plans 
for a Zane Grey Week which will give every 
dealer a chance to accumulate many dollai 
bills by the display of the popular copyright 
titles of Zane Grey. All dealers are being 
urged to erect on a low platform a Zane Grey 
pyramid, each terrace to give a different Zane 
Grey title. They are also to have 300,000 extra 
copies of the reprint from the Country Gentle- 
man for distribution. 

Some stores are accepting the idiea of putting 
a second Zane Grey pyramid in the window 
and starting a guessing contest as to how 
many volumes are used in building the pyra- 
mid, the prize for the nearest guesser to be a 
set of the Zane Grey books. 

A great "deal of dealer help material has 
also been arranged by Harper and Grosset and 
Dunlap, which will connect the new serial, the 
films and the books into one complete effort, 
and moving picture houses are to be supplied 
with display plates, emphasizing the Zane Grey 
Week. W. R. Richardson, of Harper and 
Brothers, and[ F. L. Reed, of Grosset and Dun- 
lap, have been working in close co-operation 
with the publicity director of the Curtis Pub- 
lishing Company and the W. W. Hodkinson 
Corporation, so that all the different types of 
publicity will tie up closely together. 

Navy Department Book Sale 

A^OUT 75,000 volumes of miscellaneous 
fiction, science, history, etc., are being 
offered by the Navy Department, Bureau 
of Supplies and Accounts, for public sale in 
a bulletin dated March 28th, and just re- 
ceived in the trade. This list, which con- 
sists of 46 multigraphed pages, is offered at 
what the bulletin states are the prices at 
which they were charged to the enlisted per- 
sonnel of the Navy during the war. All orders 
amounting to $250 or more are subject to a 
reduction in price of 20 per cent, and, in 
addition to this, quantity discounts are appli- 
cable of two per cent for a $2000 order, five 

per cent on $5000, ten per cent on $10,000, 15 
per cent on $25,000. The bulletin is signed 
under direction of the Paymaster General. 

These books seem to be material bought 
for the Navy Department for use on their 
various ships, and are in quantities varying 
from one up to 100 or more, and in some 
cases of technical books quantities run into 
the thousands. The plan of selling them from 
lists of this kind seems to have been based 
on the Department's experience in selling 
general merchandise. The prices listed are 
about one-third to 40 per cent off what were 
the list prices of two years ago. 

Afiril 23, 1921 


Such a large and miscellaneous group of 
books has seldom come onto the market at 
any one time, and it seems unlikely that they 
can be moved thru the usual bookselling 
channels at the prices that are now listed. 

The first group is of naval and military 
books, for which the trade has small outlet. 
This group varies from one copy of "The 
Philadelphia Ex-Meridian Table" at $2.96 to 
5082 copies of "The Handybook for Enlisted 
Men" at 22 c. 

The next group covers History, Biography 
and Geography, 12 typewritten sheets. Typical 
titles are 70 of Lodge's "Hamilton" at 85 c. ; 50 
Fiske's "American Revolution" at $2.64; 50 
Coffin's "Building the Nation" at $1.57; 150 
"Rand, McNally Commercial Atlas" at $25 ; 
100 copies of Dunn's "History of Indiana" at 
89 c. And from these quantities they run 
down to threes, fours and fives of various 
well known titles at proportionate prices. 

Then follows three pages of philosophy and 
religion in quantities from eight or ten; for- 
eign languages, one page, largely of diction- 
aries; science, one page, running from 2500 
of Myers' "Steam Turbines" at $3.23 down to 
25 copies of Houston's "Wonder Book of 
Light" at $1.02; Law and Diplomacy, 10 titles, 
including 24 sets of Kent's "Cbmmentairies" 
at $18.50. 

The fiction list is 26 pages long, about 
1300 different titles, or about 35,000 volumes. 
Some of the larger quantities are Walter 
Scott editions, having from 100 to 200 vol- 
umes per title, at 38 c. to 40 c. a volume, 
edition not mentioned, tho probably Every- 
man's. Most of the fiction quantities vary 
from 5 to 40 and are very largely contem- 
porary, altho not current titles. Hall Caine 
is here, Charles Coffin, Walter Camp, Cham- 
bers, Chesterton, Davis, Howells, Kingsley, 
Locke, Mabie, Charles Reade, Quiller-Couch, 
Roosevelt, etc. Many of the fiction titles 
would be 'classed as boys' books in the trade. 
The prices on this list run about one-third to 
40 per cent off the list price. 

This huge catalog has been sent out to 
the trade, and it is the presumption that if 
they are not sold by this method they may 
be offered in other channels at a later date. 

Cambridge History Withdrawn 

GP. PUTNAM'S SONS have stopped the 
sale of the fourth and last volume of 
"The Cambridge History of American Litera- 
ture" and will recall all the copies of it so fat- 
on the market. This action comes as a result 
of objections to an article in it on Christian 
Science written by Dr. Woodbridge Riley, 
Professor of Philosophy in Vassar College. 
^ The offending article came before the atten- 
tion of Albert F. Gilmore in charge of the 
Christian Science Committee on Publication 
for the State of New York who straightway 
raised objection to the whole tone of the article 
and to a certain paragraph in particular. In 
answer, Major George Haven Putnam and 
Irving Putnam say that in course of publica- 

tion this important work has been handled 
entirely, so far as editorial responsibility is 
concerned by Professor W. P. Trent of Co- 
lumbia and his colleagues. Professor Riley's 
article had not been read by any one of the 
firm's publishing board before publication. 

Irving Putnam claims that he was aston- 
ished at the tone of the article, that it was 
written in a light and flippant vein without due 
reverence for the subject of a religion believed 
in by several millions of persons. Major Put- 
nam subsequently confirmed the opinion of his 
brother and said that they could hardly afford 
to offend two million readers. 

Between 1500 and 2000 books have already 
gone out and it will cost the firm considerable 
to blot out the edition. The Rev. Dr. Lyman 
P. Powell, President of Hobart College, has 
consented to write a substitute article, cover- 
ing the same ground but covering it in "a way 
which will not be offensive and which will be 
in language that G. P. Putnam's will be will- 
ing to endorse." 

Professor Riley, author of "American 
Thought From Puritanism to Pragmatism" 
(Holt), who wrote the condemned "Science 
and Health" article feels that he has treated 
the subject fairly, saying that the essay is 
based on first-hand information, altho much 
of the material has been suppressed by 
Christian Scientists. 

New York Bindery Situation 

THRU an emergency committee at Room 
321, Hotel Pennsylvania, the Employing 
Book Binders' Association of New York 
is handling the more pressing needs of the 
publishers by placing these jobs in the few 
producing shops. 

Publishers have so far had their immediate 
needs cared for and as the month of April is 
ebb tide in book manufacturing the pressure 
has not yet become severe. Publishers are 
taking the attitude that by standing behind 
the binders in this emergency conditions 
can be obtained that will help production and 
permit edition work being done in the city at 
reasonably near out-of-town prices. 

In the Knickerbocker Bindery, in which the 
Unions called the strike that precipitated the 
present decision to organize open shops, there 
is now a full staff at work in all departments. 
Three other binderies are working and new 
workers slowly coming in. 

Pulp Wood Consumption 

COMPLETE government reports on 1920 
pulp wood consumption have just been 
printed, showing that the amount of pulp con- 
sumed by the mills and principal paper-making 
plants was 177/10% greater in 1920 than in 
1918. These figures are published in connec- 
tion with the study being made of the pulp 
wood situation by the American Paper and 
Pulp Association and the Census Bureau. 


The Photo Engraving Situation 

IN the last day of the New York State Legis- 
lature the bill known as "The Meyer-Martin 
Bill" was passed. This will greatly relieve the 
situation in the photo-engraving field and take 
away a threat to the printing industry. At 
present the Photo-Engravers' Union of New 
York has an agreement with its employers 
under which the minimum price of photo- 
engravings is fixed by the Union. This ar- 
rangement was put thru by the Union under 
the argument that no union man could afford 
to work in a shop that charged less than the 
minimum set. While it may be true that any 
workman is at a disadvantage if he works for 
a shop whose prices become so low that they 
can not pay a living wage, in practical appli- 
cation this would mean that the workman 
could set the price for any commodity in whose 
produce he had a part. This would give him 
a power that is forbidden to manufacturers of 
general merchandise. 

The reason that this unusual contract could 
not te legally reached under the New York 
State Law was because the Donnelly Anti- 
Trust Act by its wording applied only to 
"commodities in common use," and when suit 
was attempted the courts ruled that photo- 
engravings didj not fall in this class. The 
wording of the Act has now been changed by 
the Meyer-Martin Bill, so that this kind of 
price-fixing will be illegal. 

There was an attempt to remedy this situa- 
tion last year, but nothing was accomplished. 
For work in this session the organization of 
newspaper publishers determined to make a 
vigorous stand for a correction of this situa- 
tion, and they were supported in this by the 
organization of periodical publishers and by the 
National Association of Book Publishers. 

All users of photo-engraving felt that if this 
situation was not now faced the plan of raising 
prices by union manifesto would be extended 
to other branches of printing and plate-making. 
In union circles this bill was considered one of 
the most important that it was their duty to 
fight against, and Samuel Gompers visited Al- 
bany during the last few days of the session 
and got the promise of having the bill put on 
the shelf until next January, but, on account 
of the vigorous protest from all three or- 
ganizations, the bill was brought out by Gov- 
ernor Miller and passed on April i6th. The 
present price-fixing arrangement between the 
photo-engraving shops and the Union now be- 
comes illegal. 

Sales Tax Bill Introduced 

A TAXATION that is likely to line up 
retail interest against the interest of large 
corporations is now under active discussion 
before the new Congress. Several bills, em- 
bodying the principle of a sales tax, have 
been introduced, one by Senator Smoot, which 
he estimates will raise two billion dollars, or 
about half of the total revenues of the gov- 
ernment. This bill would tax all sales ex- 

The Publishers' Weekly 

cept those on goods such as tobaccos, bever- 
ages, automobiles, and sporting goods which 
are already taxed. Senator Smoot estimates 
that, altho a commodity may pass thru a half 
dozen hands, the ultimate increase to the pur- 
chaser would not be over 3^4%. Several 
other bills, embodying this sales tax prin- 
ciple are also introduced. 

In the application to the book business this 
would mean i% on manufacturing bills to 
the publisher, i% on the publisher's whole- 
sale price, and, if the books pass thru a job- 
ber, i% there, and again i% on the retailer's 
sales. The publisher who had his own bind- 
ing plant would avoid one of these taxes, 
and if the publisher did his own direct sell- 
ing, one or two other impacts of the tax 
would be avoided. This would undoubtedly 
tend toward giving an advantage to direct 
dealing. Another disadvantage to the book- 
trade is that books are sold at a fixed price, 
and the extra i% cannot easily be put on at 
the consumer's end as can be done so easily 
on unidentified merchandise. 

Wage Scales in Binderies 

IN' putting out its announcement of open 
shop conditions, the Employing Binders' 
Association of New York has specified that it 
will not now recognize any limit of output 
such as has been the former shop practice, and 
has announced wage scales based on the 48- 
hour week, running from $24 up to $48. These 
scales run about 10 per cent less than the 
previous ranges, as follows : $48, head stamp- 
er; $45, extra finisher; $42, stampers, head 
sheetman; $40, stock cutter, book trimming 
machine operator, power rounder and backer, 
case-making machine operator, casing-in- 
mac'hine operator, marbler, extra forwarder, 
extra finisher's assistant, circuit bible worker, 
folding machine operator, gathering machine 
stitcher and coverer; $38, sheet and plate cut- 
ter, book trimming machine operator, circu- 
lar rough trimmer operator, hand rounder, 
hand case maker and stretcher, casing-in by 
hand, book repairer, gathering machine oper- 
ator, assistant on sticher and coverer ; $36, 
assistant >sheetman, board cutter, smashing 
machine operator, builder in, coloring edge, 
assistant folding machine operator ; $35, par- 
ing machine operator; $34, sheet straighten- 
ers; $30, hand gluer up, pasting off by hand, 
casing-in machine assistants; $26, head gold 
layer ; $24, gold layer ; all extras to remain as 
on the present scale, every shop having six 
men or less to have one stamper's apprentice, 
with one extra for every six men, and the book 
binders shall have one apprentice for every 
five men, apprentices to receive $15 the first 
year, $20 the second, $25 the third, and $30 
the fourth.

VITAMINES are now being as hard worked 
by the press as calories were but a few years 
ago. Most reliable information about these 
mysterious factors of human food without 
which man sickens and eventually dies is to

Benjamin Harrow's "Vitamines." 

THE LATEST ADDITION to Lippincott's Chil-

HUEBSCH HAS just published the poems of 
Wilfred Owen. When the book was published 
in England, Middleton Murry, of the London 
Nation and Athenaeum, wrote: "Here in thirty- 
three brief pages is; the evidence that Wilfred 
Owen was the greatest poet of the war." 

THE LAST t PUBLIC message of John Bur- 
roughs was a tribute to his old friend W. D. 
Howells which was read at the Howells' Mem- 
orial ceremonies of the American Academy 
of Arts and Letters held in New York, only a 
few weeks before Mr. Burroughs' own death. 
Both men left unpublished manuscripts, Mr. 
Burroughs of two books on outdoor subjects, 
and Mr. Howells of the novel, "The Vacation 
of the Kelwyns" which Harper & Brothers 
brought out some months ago. 

STACY AUMONIER'S new collection of short 
stories, "The Golden Windmill" was ready on- 
April ipth. 

ARTHUR MASON, author of "The Flying: 
Bo'sun" (Holt), is preparing to leave New 
York shortly for a visit to his old friends, the 
various ports of South America, to be gone 
four months. 

SELDOM is a book's appearance more timely

THE PRESENT craze for South Sea literature 
together with the appearance of Frederick 
O'Brien's new book, "Mystic Isles of the South 
Seas" make that faraway, enchanting land of 
Tahiti a quite general topic of conversation

those who live there Tahiti is pronounced

WILLIAM LYON PHELPS, in reviewing Dos- 
toevsky's "The Friend of the Family" (Mac- 
millan), in the New York Post Literary Re- 
view last week, said, "This is the twelfth and 
final volume in the novels of Dostoevsky, trans- 
lated by Constance Garnett; and we must con- 
gratulate her on the completion of her task 
and congratulate as well the English-speaking 
world. For the first time these mighty works 
of genius are all accessible in English and 
translated by one who was foreordained! for 
the purpose. Great translators are rarer than 
great creative writers; the requirements are 
an absolute knowledge of two languages, a 
conscientious fidelity to accuracy, and an in- 
stinctive feeling for the right word and the 
right phrase. To see how admirable the work 
of Mrs. Garnett is one has only to compare 
her translations of Turgenev and Tolstoi with 
other versions. Those who do not yet know 
their Dostoevsky have a great experience com- 
ing to them. I advise them to read him in the 
following order: First, 'Crime and Punish- 
ment' ; second, 'The House of the Dead' ; third, 
'The Idiot.' If they have survived thus far 
they will then be ready to read Dosteovsky's 
masterpiece, 'The Brothers Karamazov,' which 
plumbs depths and reaches heights known to 
no other novelist in the world."

George H. Mifflin 

The following resolution has been adopted 
by the Boston Booksellers' Association : 

WHEREAS: It has been the will of All- 
wise Providence to remove from earthly activi- 
ty George Harrison Mifflin, the honored Presi- 
dent of Houghton Mifflin Company, be it 

RESOLVED: That the members of the 
Boston Booksellers' Association feel keenly the 
loss of one who has long been the leading 
personage among those engaged in the book- 
producing and; book-distributing interests of 
our section. Cultured scholar, polished gentle- 
man, wide-visioned man of affairs, genial host, 
kind neighbor, his was the good fortune to 
combine a noble mind with a winsome and 
commanding presence. Representing the best 
traditions of New England and as worthy as 
welcome a companion of the most talented 
members of the literary and artistic craft, he 
honored the calling to .which he had given the 
many years of his mature life, happily active 
until the end. 

RESOLVED: That our deep sympathy be 
extended to the family and professional asso- 
ciates of the strong man who has gone, whose 
memory should inspire each of us to try to 
be a credit to his work. 

By its Committee:

The Fair Trade Bill 

of Pennsylvania, has introduced into the 
new Congress the bill known as "The 
Stephens-Kelly Bill," whose purpose it is to 
obtain a fair opportunity for identified mer- 
chandise in the open field. The American 
Fair Tradle League will give full support to 
this effort. The book-trade is among those 
particularly interested in the passage of this 
bill, as it is intended to give aid to makers 
of identified merchandise and to enable them 
to develop .their market without fear of their 

reputation being- used in general cut-pricing 
to aid the sale of unidentified merchandise. 

Active Membership Campaign 

AN aggressive campaign for increasing the 
membership in the American Booksellers' 
Association has been launched for the p re- 
Convention weeks by Eugene L. Herr, of 
Lancaster, President of the Association, and 
John G. Kidd, of Cincinnati, Chairman of 
the (Membership Committee. Mr. Herr has 
asked forty-four members in different parts 
of the country to serve as agents for the 
Membership Committee, and has written, ask- 
ing them to co-operate in bringing the im- 
portant work of the Association to the atten- 
tion of people in their locality, with the hope 
that each agent may find from two to four 
new members for the Association. A new 
roster of present members has been sent out, 
in order that this canvass may be directed 
toward those not now members. 

The Association is now coming to its 
twenty-first birthday, and during that time 
it has seen the trade solidified and become 
aggressive with new spirit and new power. 
There is a general confidence in the future 
of the book-trade that has not existed for 
years, and this spirit has been largely de- 
veloped by the togetherness of the trade. The 
plea for membership thus put forward ought 
to receive a prompt response from booksel- 
lers who are interested in the future of the 
business, and who appreciate what organiza- 
tion has done and can do for the business. 

Periodical Notes 

AUGUST SCHERL, widely known in Germany 
as the pioneer of "American journalism," is 
dead at the age of 72. He was founder of the 
Lokal Anzeiger, Die Woche and other period- 
icals. Without ever having visited the United 
States he introduced what passed as the Amer- 
ican style of journalism. In this he was aided 
by von Kupfer and others who had served an 
apprenticeship in America. 

Beginning with the May issue, Glenn Frank 
will assume complete editorial direction of 
the Century Magazine. The assistant editor 
will be Max Aley. The form of the magazine 
is to be changed, specially manufactured 
paper, and larger and more open type being 
used. The same cover, resembling leather, 
will be used each month.

Rare Books, Autographs and Prints 

THE loan exhibition of old prints at the 
National Arts Club illustrates the history 
of art at the press from the early German 
engravings to Timothy Cole. 


"The Penman's Paradise," an exhibition of 
Renaissance and later writing books and ex- 
amples of fine penmanship, is open to the pub- 
lic at the Grolier Club until May 31. 

The report comes from Denmark that the 
manuscript of Hans Christian Andersen's "The 
Romance of My Life" is to" come to this 
country, having been purchased by an Ameri- 
can collector .for $5000. Neither the Royal 
or University Library felt like paying this 
large sum, invaluable tho the work is because 
only a part of it was published during the 
author's lifetime. 

The final part of the famous library of Dr. 
Thomas Adidis Emmet, of this city, was sold 
at the American Art Galleries, April 13, bring- 
ing $8,131. It consisted largely of prints and 
autographs, the remnant of material collected 
for extra-illustrating, and a few extra-illus- 
trated books of a personal nature. The latter 
were mostly bought by relatives and personal 
friends of the famous physician. The three 
published volumes of Stokes' "Iconography of 
Manhattan" brought $250. 

Selections from the Arbury Library and 
other purchases in London and Paris, Part VI 
of the estate of the late George D. Smith, will 
be sold at the Anderson Galleries, April 28 
and 29. by order of his executors. The material 
for this part was delivered direct from the 
customs to the catalogers at the auction room 
and consists of autograph letters, manuscripts 
and rare books from fifteenth century block 
woodcuts to the present century. The catalog 
contains 4015 lots, most of which will be of 
interest to collectors in one field or another. 

William Strang, portrait painter and etcher, 
died in Bournemouth, England, April 13. He 
won distinction as a portrait etcher, his por- 
traits of Stevenson, Kipling, Hardy ^and other 
contemporary authors being very popular 
among book collectors. Mr. Strang was one 
of the original members of the Royal Society 
of Painters-Etchers, displaying his work at 
the first exhibition of the society, in 1881, and 
was elected an associate engraver of the Royal 
Academy when that distinction was revived in 
1906. He was a student of Alphonse Legros 
in the 'Slade School in London where later he 
was assistant master in the etching class. 

Etchings, engravings and drawings from the 
estate of James Stillman, the property of Mrs. 
Frank J. 'Sprague, Edgar C. Riebe and others, 
were sold at Delmonico's, under the auspices 
of the Walpole Galleries, the evening of April 
13, bringing $6,300. Hadley Fitton's "The 

Rose Window, Notre Dame," brought $230, 
the highest price of the sale. Dry points printed 
in color by Mary Casset, "The Toilet" and 
"Mother and Child," each brought $115, and 
another "Mother and Child," $145. Two old 
views of New York, "New York from We- 
hawk," and "New York from Brooklyn 
Heights," engraved by J. Hill, brought $130 
each. Two original water color drawings by 
Thackeray, designs for the illustrations of 
"The Book of Snobs," brought $110 and $105 
respectively. Whistler's "The Limeburner" 
brought $190 and "The Black Wharf," $205. 
There were several Zorn's, "Auguste Strind- 
berg" bringing $165. 

The library of Matthew Baird, Jr., of Phila- 
delphia, consisting mainly of subscription edi- 
tions of American, English and French authors, 
in full levant and morocco bindings, sold at 
the American Art Galleries, April 12, brought 
$29,339. This library contained eighteen more 
lots than that of Colonel Jacob Ruppert, sold 
April 14, of last year, and was finer in almost 
every respect, and yet it brought only a little 
more than one-half as much, or $25,116 less, 
to be exact. The drop hit some of the best 
sets, for instance, the autograph edition of 
Bret Harte fell from $800 to $340; the edition 
de luxe of John Fiske from $500 to $320; the 
large paper edition of Nathaniel Hawthorne 
"from $740 to $355; a few sets held their own 
or showed slight advances. The 'highest price 
of the sale was $750 paid for the library edition 
of John Ruskin's "Works," 39 vols., London, 
1903-12; and the Japan paper copy of the 
Outward Bound edition of Rudyard Kipling's 
"Prose and Verse," 29 vols., New York, 1897- 
1920, came next at $700. The drop in prices 
was due to two causes: the general deflation 
of the last twelve months that has hit all but 
the rarest of books; and, second, the growing 
discrimination of wealthy buyers who do not 
particularly fancy doublures and full bindings 
gorgeously decorated with machine stamped 
designs. The well edited, printed and illus- 
trated edition of the worthy author will always 
be in demand and some buyers will^ prefer to 
have such sets in fine leather bindmgs. But 
the day of the stamped binding as a work of 
art to be sold for $50, $100 and $500 a volume 
has passed and' let us hope never to return. It 
showed bad taste and vulgar extravagance 
and no amount of misrepresentation or 
humbuggery can, we believe, revive it. In the 
interest of the art of book binding, book col- 
lecting and bookselling generally let us rejoice 
that this is the case. F. M. H.
