The Prices of the Editions printed in Germany are calculated at the rate of Five

Shillings to the Rix-Dollar.-It has not, in general, been deemed necessary to cite the varieties of fine und vellum paper copies, because it may be taken as a rule, that all the principal German editions are printed on three kinds of paper, of which the second in quality, called charta scriptoria, is usually published at a third or fourth more than the common, and the best or charta velina (i. e. membranacea,) at about double.
