Paul Nugent-materialist. N. Y., E. P. Dutton & Co., [1890.] 5+344 p. D. pap., 50 c.

Intended as a reply to "Robert Elsmere," and devoting a chapter to criticism of that book. Paul Nugent is represented as an unusually handsome English gentleman, who, following his inclinations, has kept clear of church and dogma, but has lived a correct life with high ideals and warm love of his fellow-men. His first wife, a

professed Christian, has no influence with him, since her life is not in harmony with her creed. After her death Paul is thrown with earnest Christians and his intellectual skepticism is finally conquered by theological arg uments and a study of earnest Christian lives.

Philips, F. C. Margaret Byng. N. Y., J: W. Lovell Co., [1890.] c. 2+300 p. D. (Lovell's international ser., no. 114.) pap., 50 c.

Margaret Byng is a curious mixture of good and bad. She leaves her husband when his affairs are hopelessly involved and takes a start in life for herself. Possessing a little money she goes to Monte Carlo, believing she can win a fortune at cards. She is, however, unfortunate, but makes the acquaintance of a man who has just won ten thousand pounds. This man is murdered for his money, and Margaret is almost a witness of the deed. Her silence is bought by the murderer giving her half of his plunder. Her guilty secret and ill-gotten money finally wreck her life completely. By the author of "As in a looking-glass."

Phineas, [pseud.] The blind men and the Devil. Bost., Lee & Shepard, 1891 [1890.] c. 4219 p. D. (Good company ser., no. 1.) cl., $1; pap., 50 c.

In the guise of an allegory some of the weaknesses of our present social system are shown. John Curtis and wife disappear from Woodwardtown, to reappear in the midst of an unknown people, who claim John as their captive, because of his attempt to force an entrance into the Devil's temple. They explain that this building is a treasury so called by them, because the money that is secreted here was formerly called developed wealth, which later is contracted to devel, or devil. These queer people, who are blind, claim to work for the good of the community. In their ways and means of fulfilling their purpose, the author has demonstrated his views. Pickard, J. L.

Che Publishers' Weekly.

FOUNDED BY F. LEYPOLDT.

AUGUST 16, 1890.

The editor does not hold himself responsible for the views expressed in contributed articles or communications. All matter, whether for the reading-matter columns or our advertising pages, should reach this office not later

be unaware of the fact that a number of regular readers of the "Books Wanted" column keep "black lists" of such as misuse this department-such, for instance, as resort to the method of running in a title to draw out from experienced booksellers the market value of a book concerning which they may have no knowledge themselves, and of those fishing" for other information. Such will find to their grief some day that their calls will go unheeded. This

than Wednesday noon, to insure insertion in the same department of the WEEKLY offers great possi

[blocks in formation]

"

The Book-Finder, a new English journal devoted largely to booksellers' "want" advertisements, has adopted a system which may be worthy the consideration of those who make use of the "Books Wanted column of the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY. Recognizing the fact that booksellers in a small way, who would often be glad to report a book at a price under the market value when they would be sure of receiving cash on delivery, are apt to keep their books back for other customers, the Book-Finder publishes a list of such houses as will promise to send cash immediately on receipt of any books reported through its medium. It is notorious that many firms of the highest repute are remiss in settling these small accounts. Through this they lose many opportunities of getting what they want as well as for making money. We know of several booksellers who always pass over the lists of certain houses which they have found slow pay. Indeed they do not even care to quote books at the "highest notch to such houses because, as they argue that "the wear and tear on one's mind in keeping track of their accounts amounts to more than the margin realized in the sale." This is decidedly wrong, and we therefore suggest that hereafter such houses as are willing to deal only on a cash-on-delivery basis put after their firmname the word [Cash].

We would drop a further hint to such as may

bilities for developing trade, and it is therefore in the interest of all to see to it that it is not abused.

One of the advantages of this "Books Wanted" department of the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY is that it helps to make and to keep trade. No bookseller need feel obliged to turn off a customer by bluntly informing him that he hasn't got a certain book, that it is out of print and can't be gotten. Let his address be taken and the assurance given that there is one way by which the book may possibly be obtained. Never admit, until every stone has been turned over, that you are unable to supply a book called for. It is only by following this course that you will be able to build up a reputation for enterprise and obliging service. And to assist you in this there is not a better help than a judicious use of our "Books Wanted" columns.

THE PUBLISHERS' TRADE LIST ANNUAL for 1890 shows its usual yearly growth, and more life and vigor than we had looked for in the present quiet state of business. The publishing and retail trade alike have learned the great use of this trade-help, and are gradually being taught that they must go at it early and get their little quota towards the bulky whole into shape, if we are to come up to our plan of having the Annual ready early enough to be of telling service in the fall business. We have covered the field very satisfactorily this year. Very few catalogues of live houses are missing. As we have often said, the dealer can help more than any one concerned to make this publication what it ought to be. If he will persistently keep the delinquent publisher informed that the omission of his catalogue is a constant source of irritation to him, it will tell in the end. Mr. J. F. Tapley, who has year after year the courage to undertake the gigantic task of uniformly binding all these lists, has his work well under way, and we can promise subscribers that we shall begin to deliver copies during the present month. We remind those whose orders are still missing, that for a few days more they can save 50 cents on their subscriptions. On and after September 1, the net price of the Annual is $2.
