Encouraged by the support of the Christmas number and in accordance with the announcement in the PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY, November 14, 1874, we shall continue the publication of the MONTHLY BOOK CIRCULAR, and desire to call the attention of Booksellers, News Agents, and Dealers generally to this handy, cheap, and profitable advertising medium for the latest books in the market.

The BOOK CIRCULAR, heretofore published with four pages, will be enlarged to eight, and will be issued at the beginning of every month, embracing Editorial Notes, Literary News, a full list containing the titles and prices of the


and announcements of

Forthcoming Works for the Current Month,

so classified as to show at a glance all the new publications in the various departments of literature, and one or two pages of general advertisements, which will not conflict with the interest of the trade. It will be printed on tinted paper like previous editions, but of superior quality, and altogether more attractive in appearance. The paper being of light texture, it can be sent with any book, magazine, paper, letter circular, with a small increase of postage.

It is certain that dealers who will adopt this cheap and effective mode for advertising their establishments, will find themselves amply repaid in a short time, and we have the testimony of many dealers who have not only increased the sales from their counters, but have found the orders for books not in stock highly remunerative.

Terms for Editions with Imprint, invariably payable in advance.

100 Copies for three months, sent post-paid,




$6 50 500 Copies for three months, sent post-paid, $19 00
12.00 1000

Special terms for larger quantities. Extra front headings, (instead of the adopted style of imprint,) with special name of paper and display, for which there is space above the rules inclosing date, are charged $1 extra per edition. At the top of this page will be found the space allotted for dealer's imprint.

Any quantity from 100 to 1000 copies will be sent post-paid, but for larger quantities, at the reduced rates, postage or expressage will be charged.


Subscribers desiring an extra number of copies for particular months will be charged pro rata. Dealers who desire an edition for trial before subscribing, can be supplied at the following

Orders must be received by the 25th of the month previous to which the subscription begins. No orders filled without payment in advance, as the numerous small amounts will neither bear the trouble nor the expense of sending bills or of repeated statements, and collecting.
