We desire to call the attention of the Trade to the New Monthly Magazine,

THE PANTOBIBLION,

the first number of which will appear early in 1891.

PANTOBIBLION is to be an International Bibliographical Directory of the World's Scientific Literature, which will give every month every kind of bibliographical information of all books published on all scientific subjects in all the countries of the civilized world in every principal language.

A specially attractive feature of the PANTOBIBLION will be short critical articles on the leading publications (books and periodicals) of the world. Such articles will be written in the language of the reviewed publication. Therefore PANTOBIBLION will be printed in

Fifteen (15) Different Languages:

English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, Hungarian, Roumanian, Servian, Russian, Bohemian and Polish.

PANTOBIBLION will be the most original and striking monthly in the world. It will also be the most instructive and interesting bibliographical pub. lication of its class; moreover, it will be the largest of all similar periodicals, as it will contain every month 150 to 200 pages of the most valuable matter.

In short, PÁNTOBIBLION will be the best practical bibliographical magazine, unrivalled in the excellence, exactness and completeness of its bibliographical information in all departments of scientific literature in its broadest sense.

PANTOBIBLION is utterly indispensable for all interested in any special course of reading or study.

No person interested in any department of science treated in current literature can afford to be without PANTOBIBLION.

Every intelligent reader wishing to be always perfectly informed on all the scientific events and questions of the day, and to keep pace generally with intellectual progress throughout the world, should subscribe to the PANTOBIBLION.

PANTOBIBLION will have the largest circulation throughout the civilized world, as its polyglot contents will give it an international, cosmopolitan character, and make it equally valuable for every cultivated person, no matter to what country and nation he belongs, nor with what languages he is familiar.

Moreover, the PANTOBIBLION will be read especially by those who are earnestly interested in selecting and buying good books.

Therefore the PANTOBIBLION will be found of incalculable value to all publishers and booksellers, as it will give them a superior medium for advertising their publications throughout the world.

The comparatively small outlay for advertising in the PANTOBIBLION will never be regretted. It will be the most rational and well-paying investment of money for all persons connected with the book trade.

Try it at once, and you will be quite convinced of the truth of all above claimed, which is an impartial statement of facts and their logical deductions.

Terms of SUBSCRIPTION.-$5.00 a year, paid in advance.

Terms of ADVERTISING.-One page, $15.00; Half page, $9.00; Quarter page, $5.00; Eighth page, $3.00; per line across the page, 50 cents; in column, 25 cents.

Subscription orders may be addressed to the office of THE PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY, 330 Pearl Street, New York, and to all principal booksellers of the world.

Advertisement orders must be addressed directly to the Editor of the PANTOBIBLION, A. KERSHA, Civil Engineer, Fontanka 64, St. Petersburg, Russia.
