1 he Fairs.

The supplementary Book Fair promises to be successful beyond the anticipation of the trade generally. We must confess that we did not look with great favor upon a Fair following so closely upon the first, although it was construed to be supplementary to it, and we did not, nor do we now believe, that its successor failure would do much to further test the usefulness or popularity of the Fair system. It is never wise to introduce into a season unexpected elements which may derange the course of trade, and as at the time of the first Fair fall plans had been laid without contemplating a second, it was even unjust to a certain class of buyers that such a sale should be held. Next year, it is to be hoped, it will be decided by the committee, on its own motion, early in the year, how many Fairs are to be held, and when ; and then this programme should stand. Meanwhile, the trade have taken hold of this supplementary Fair finely, and with the exception of two or three leading houses, nearly all the publishers will offer their lists, while buyers promise to flock from the West to lay in holiday stock. Some houses are holding back goods for first offering at the Fair, and there are other manifestations of active belief in it. In other columns we present a brief summary of the features to which publishers desire to call the especial attention of the trade, and our advertising pages furnish lists of the new books. Let us advise all who are coming to the Fair as buyers to look carefully over their stock, particularly as regards standards, and decide before they come to the Fair, with the assistance of the data given in this number, how much stock and of what sort they need to buy. The better conditions of doing business consequent on the reform movement give them more security than they used to have for laying in standard as well as novel stock; yet in the present condition of business it is better on all sides that they should buy wisely rather than largely. The trade is still afflicted, though to less extent, with the feverish desire to make

large sales, sometimes at the expense of safety, but it is better for every interest concerned that bills should be paid rather than books bought. We trust to see at the Fair good but careful buying, and a disposition on the part of sellers to place goods wisely rather than to push buyers to make purchases beyond their judgment, or to scatter goods indiscriminately.

A Stationers' Fair is to be held simultaneously, as has been announced, under the management of Mr. Andrew Geyer. Although sales were not so large in this branch at the July fair, yet it was generally conceded that it gave a very valuable opportunity to show goods with a view to future sales, and paid even if no goods were directly sold. The book and stationery interests are so thoroughly identified, so far as retailers are concerned, that the two fairs should be held at the same place, for buyers will of course centre chiefly at the Book Fair. The two are, however, not far apart, and when there is a strong Stationers' Association to hold a fair by authority, these questions may be decided by it. The fairs of either trade should never become an individual speculation, else their whole aims will be perverted.

The many friends of Lee & Shepard will regret to learn that a settlement was not effected at the meeting of last week. The result of the statement and of the committee's report upon it, and of Mr. Houghton's unexpected proposition, has been to create a wide diversity of opinion through the trade as to all the questions at issue. The feeling seems to be general, however, that if the firm is not to be allowed to go on under reasonably favorable prospects, a regular settlement in bankruptcy would be more just and proper than any course which might seem like speculating on misfortune. It would be most unwise, in any event, to throw their stock peremptorily on the market; and we believe that, with prudence and economy, the stock would be best managed by the house itself.
