Opinions of the Press.

"We acknowledge, with much pleasure, that 'Book-Prices Current' is now the most carefully edited work of its kind published in this or any other country."-Athenæum.

"A very useful and admirably edited and printed publication. No collector nor bookseller can do without this most comprehensive and invaluable guide to the ups and downs of the book market."-Morning Post.

"This indispensable reference book is making itself more and more necessary to bookbuyers and booksellers."-Bookseller.

"One of the most valuable assets a bookseller can have."-The Clique. "It exhibits all those good qualities of accurate record which have raised the publication to such a position of universal esteem.”—Publishers' Circular.

"If money, as Anthony Trollope neatly put it, be the reward of labour, too much is certainly not asked for the labour which has marshalled into order a manuscript involving 33,000 distinct titles and considerably over 500,000 numerals. The typographical arrangement of the volume will receive praise from those who can understand the difficulties of the printers' task.' The Guardian.
