Evolution and Progress: an Exposition and Defence.

By Rev. William I. Gill, A.M., of Newark Conference, N. J. Third Edition. Cloth extra, imitation morocco, fine paper, 295 pp., umo, $1.50.

Each volume in this series was awarded a prize of Two Hundred Dollars in addition to the copyright, in a competition which was open one year to the world, and where over three hundred manuscripts were submitted and read.

"This volume was chosen because it discusses what, in this age, is a representative subject, and in a representative way, with fearless independence, calling no man master, moving toward its object with a steady, undeviating progress, in a style of crystal clearness, and evincing unwonted logical coherence and thoroughness. The work, as a whole, is more incisive and exhaustive than any thing that has been published on the subject of which it treats."Publishers' Notice.

To Dealers in School Books



The New School Edition of the AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL CATALOGUE, now in its sixth year, will be issued in July, and will contain an entirely revised complete Reference List of School Books, with retail prices for 1875-1876.

The List will be arranged as usual, according to special branches; such as Algebra, Arithmetic, Astronomy, Composition, Dictionaries, Elocution, English Grammar, French, Geography, German, Greek, History, Latin, Philosophy—Natural and Mental, Primers, Readers, etc., etc., with numerous cross-references. Thus information on any branch can be obtained at a glance.

The names of the Publishers will be indicated by initials, to which a separate key will be supplied fot the special use of Dealers.

The American Educational Catalogue, having been recognized as the most complete and practical guide to Educational Literature, is distributed every year by most of the leading firms, who have realized the fact that it pays them to buy editions from 100 to 2000 copies each, with their own imprint, and to circulate the catalogue among their educational customers, for the purpose of soliciting orders, and saving at the same time much troublesome correspondence.

In making up special orders for the Educational Catalogue, Bookseller should bear in mind that it possesses not only temporary value, but will serve its purpose during the whole year.


t9~ Cash remittance must invariably accompany each order. _jgj


100 Copies, - - $5.00 I 1,000 Copies, ... $40.00

The last page will be left blank, unless a stereotyped or electrotyped page, uniform in size with

the Publishers' Weekly, shall be sent before going to press. If we are to make the plate, it will

be charged extra at the mere cost of composition and electrotyping, viz., $5.81. These rates are

charged uniformly for any page that does not contain more matter than can be set up in nonpareil.

Copy should be sent with the order.

Mode of shipping must be stated when ordering the CATALOGUE.


As numerous orders for editions are received ever}'summer, after the issue of the Educational Catalogue, we again call attention to the necessity of being in possession of all orders on or before July 25th.

All communications concerning the EDUCATIONAL CATALOGUE should be addressed to F. Leypoldt, Publisher, 37 Park Row, New-York.


Uniform Trade-list Annual

For 1875-76.

In compliance with the many urgent requests, the forthcoming Annual will have an Index. Of course, like Whitaker's, it can only include the more prominent works and editions, and is to serve merely as a temporary expedient until the completion of the American Catalogue and Finding List. Imperfect as such an Index necessarily must be, it will, by indicating the publishers of live authors and the principal works on any live subject, greatly facilitate ready reference.

As the new Trade-Lists will comprise nearly all the books published since the issue of the last annual, and the Index is to refer to all important publications, the latter will, to some extent, also replace the Annual Reference List.


1. The price will be One Dollar per copy, bound in cloth. The price of the volume will be raised

after close of subscription.

2. In order to insure the contributing publishers against any waste of material and unnecessary ex

pense, and ourselves against any great risk, which the low price would not warrant, only a very limited number of copies will be bound beyond the number of copies subscribed for.

3. // is desirable that the subscription should be closed at the earliest date possible. Publishers

should be notified of the number of Catalogues and Trade-Lists needed by July 19M, at the latest.

4. No subscription at $1 can be accepted after the number of copies to be printed has been deter

mined upon.

5. No subscriptions can be taken into account that have not been paid up when the number of , copies to be printed will be determined upon, as the small amounts will neither bear the

trouble, nor the expense or risk, of numerous accounts, pills, statements, and subsequent collections.

6. Remittances should be made by money-order on New- York, or registered letter, as we can net be

responsible for any losses. Receipt for remittance, with attached order for delivery, will be sent by return mail.

7. Booksellers, in their own interest, are requested to call the attention of librarians ana large book

buyers to the Annual; but copies ordered by the latter must be subscribed for through booksellers. Except in the case of subscribers to the Publishers' Weekly, all inquirers will be referred to their local dealers.

F. LEYPOLDT, Publisher,


"The ' Uniform Trade-List' was to me a work of great interest. I had long been a collector of catalogues, both American and English; but somehow, it had been my general experience that just at the moment I had occasion to refer to a particular catalogue, that catalogue was not to be found—and this is the general experience of collectors, whether booksellers or bookbuyers. Here, then, in a convenient form, was a catalogue, which, as far as the United States were concerned, saved me all further trouble. Herein was collected the lists of the Appletons, the Harpers, the Lippincotts, the Osgoods, and other well-known houses, with the catalogues of publishers whose names had scarcely been heard in this country, and whose publications were entirely unknown. The unobtrusive simplicity of the plan was no inconsiderable merit; the book required no pushing ; it told its own tale, and its usefulness was apparent to all."—Extract from Preface of Whitaker 's Reference Catalogue of Current Literature.


Extracts from Letters received.

The American News Co., New-york.—Having evidence that the Trade-list Annual has proved one of the most time-saving and profitable instrumentalities used by the trade, and by whom it is daily consulted, we hope, in our own interest, as well as that of the trade generally, every publishing house will be represented in it. Please send us, when it is ready, 250 copies.

D. Appleton & Co., New-York.—We find the Uniform Trade-list Annual So valuable for reference that it is in daily use, indispensable for library orders, and certainly the most complete collection of catalogues ever issued of American publishers, and is equally a necessity for the bookbuyer and the bookseller. We want 100 copies.

Baker, Pratt & Co., New York.—Please send us as soon as ready 100 copies of the Trade-list Annual. After our experience of the past year we wonder that the trade has

fone for so long n time without any uniform Trade-List We ave found that of last year made by you of very great convenience, and we do not see how any bookseller can get along without it. We hope those houses which failed to furnish their catalogues last year will do so this. We believe that a publisher can not advertise his books so advantageously through any other medium as this. Let us have the Annual as complete as possible, and we shall feel under renewed obligations to you for your efforts to help the trade.

Claxton, Remsbn & Haffelfinger, Philadelphia.— We want 50 copies of the Annual. We use it daily as a fcvok of reference for prices, and we find it of incalculable value. Would not bt without it on any account, as it saves us an immense amount of trouble in hunting up lists of prices

Cobb, Andrews & Co., Cleveland, O.—Just what we wanted.

Dodd & Mead, New-york.—The Annual has become, beyond all question, a necessity to booksellers.

A. H. Dooley, Terre Haute, Ind.—The Annual is just what the book trade needs—and that badly. It would be of great advantage if you could induce the small publishersout-of-the-way publishersand publishers of subscription books, to insert their lists.

James T. Dudley, St. Paul, Minn.—Your Annual is of incalculable value to booksellers. It is to be hoped that those publishers who, unfortunately for themselves and greatly to the inconvenience of the trade, were not represented last year, will not fail to put in an appearance in the forthcoming volume.

Evrich & Co., Jackson, Miss.—We would not take ten times its cost for it.

Hadlev Bros., Chicago.—We have found it of great service last year and don't want to be without it in future.

James R Johnson, St. Joseph, Mo.—I know it would be the means of taking many orders where clerks would be too lazy to hunt up catalogues.

Wesley Jones, Burlington, Iowa.—I consider it of as much value to a bookseller as a counter in his store to display his books upon.

W. B. Keen, Cooke & Co., Chicago, Iii,—The Annual will prove an indispensable requisite to ail booksellers.

Lee & Shepard, Boston.—We find your Annual the most useful work for reference we have ever had for general use in the trade, and will supply our list for your next issue. Put us down for too copies.

Lee, Shepard & Dillingham, New-York.—The TradeList Annual is the cheapest salesman a bookseller can have. It can answer more questions on books than the oldest hand in the trade. Booksellers should keep it on their counters. It will be as much consulted in bookstores as the city directory in drug stores. We want 100 copies.

J. B. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia. We have found your Trade-list Annual a very useful and reliable assistant in our business. Our order is for 50 copies.

Loring, Short & Harmon, Portland, Me.—We think your plan excellent, and just what is wanted.

Moseley & Bro., Madison, Wis.—It does you great credit, and is worth to us ten times its cost. Any publisher that has not his list in it is a slow man.

H. B. Nina & Co.. Troy, N. Y.—We hope you will be able to get lists of all the small and out-of-the-way publishers, for it is their books that we always have the most trouble to get a knowledge of.

M. Norton, Scranton, Pa.—It is one of the most useful and necessary articles of furniture we have in the store.

Jas. R. Osgood & Co., Boston, Mass,—Your Annual amply fills the promises you made for it, and proves the wisdom of your plan. For booksellers it is so convenient that they must regard it as virtually indispensable; and publishers can not fail to appreciate the advantage of having all their books catalogued in a volume, which every seeker of book information will surely consult.

Porter & Coates, Philadelphia.—We believe it to be a most important enterprise, and valuable alike to the publisher and bookseller. We have a number of copies in constant use in our retail department, and consider them indispensable.

Purnell, Atkins & Co., Lexington, Ky.—Has saved us hours of probably unsucessful searching through single catalogues for books which we have found in the Annual in a few minutes.

Williams, Sturges & Co., Knoxville, Tenn.—It is precisely what we need, as it saves much trouble in collecting the thousand and one "Cats." of as many publishers.

Wilson, Hinkle & Co., Cincinnati, O.—We have just finished something very like swearing, at not finding a certain Boston firm in the Annual.

A. D. F. Randolph & Co., New-York,—We have great pleasure in bearing testimony to the value of the Trade-list Annual; we could not now do without it. Not a day passes that we do not consult it many times; and we wish ycu abundant success in the proposed re-issue.

L. Thorvel Solberg, Omaha, Ned.—I find occasion to refer to it so often, that a facetious customer, noticing my hesitancy in answering a question relating to some book, said, "Go get your Booksellers* Bible."

Geo. E. Stevens & Co., Cincinnati, O.—We found it of the greatest advantage to us, saving both time and labor. Ten copies are in use in the different departments of our business, and besides these, we furnished a number of copies to other dealers.

W. W. Watkins, Cazenovia, N. Y.—I have given it a prominent place on my counter, and sold many books from its chance perusal.



Stationers' Hand-Book,

For 1875-76.





We owe an apology and explanation to the Trade on account of the delay of this longpromised work. The delay was caused by circumstances beyond our control. In the first place, Mr. Kelley, who at first was announced as chief editor, was compelled, from continued engagements elsewhere, to withdraw from our enterprise. In the second place, much time was lost in the vain endeavor to induce the Manufacturers and Importers of Stationery and Fancy Goods to issue and contribute their trade-lists in a uniform shape. These lists were to form the bulk of the volume. We have found that it will require a few years of preparatory work before this part of the programme can be fulfilled satisfactorily. Convinced that a practical demonstration of the utility of such work as formerly proposed will finally enable us to accomplish the task, we have devoted our chief attention to the editorial department, giving there, in addition to a more elaborate and methodical treatment of the general material, all the information that we might have expected to see given in contributed lists. This has made the enterprise much more difficult and expensive to us, but we believe that our determination to make the work stand on its own merit, will, as in the case of the Uniform TradeList Annual, finally meet its reward.

The Hand-book will contain descriptive information relating to Standard and Fancy Writing Papers, Enameled Papers, Envelopes, Pens, Pencils, Card and Card-Boards, Blank Books, etc., etc., giving weights, sizes, grades, etc., etc., so as to enable any person to order from a manufacturer understand ingly.

It will also contain elaborate articles on Fancy Goods, Stationery-Etiquette, Combinations of Stationery Orders, from $15 and upward, Directions how to have Blank-Books made to order, Bookbinding, etc., a valuable paper on Copyrights and Patents, as far as they apply to the stationery trade, giving all necessary information how to procure the registrations of trade-marks, etc., etc., a selection of practical trade receipts, and other useful information.

The Hand-book will be supplemented by an extensive price-list, indexed for ready reference, by Mr. Albert B. Yohn, of Yohn & Porter, Indianapolis.

In order to enhance the value of the Hand-book, and make it a trade authority, the bulk of the material has been furnished by the leading houses in the various branches of the stationery trade. Theodore L. De Vinne, of Francis Hart & Co.; Mr. Lyon, of the American News Co.; Willy Wallach; Mr. J. F. Anderson, Jr., of J. F. Anderson, Jr., & Co.; H. Eugene Hosford, of Hosford & Sons; Chas. T. Bainbridge, of Porter & Bainbridge; Mr. Martin, of Samuel J. Raynor & Co.; Louis Dreka, of Philadelphia; Charles D. Pratt; William P. Dane; Mr. Hoe, of Joseph Gillott; R. W. Smith & Co.; Miss Kate Newell, of A. J. Todd, Patents, and many others, have contributed to the book.

SUBSCRIPTION PRICE, net, %\ per copy, bound in cloth. The price of the book will be raised after publication.

NOTICE. Subscribers to the "Stationers' Annual" who have paid up their subscriptions, are entitled to copies of the Hand-book at the price first announced,

F. LEYPOLDT, Publisher,

37 Park Row, New-York.
