black, is a perfect piece of workmanship; it is delightful to notice the accuracy of the lines and the finish of every part. There is an old book, La Légende Dorée, imprinted by one Jehan du Pre in the year 1493, bound in a quaint old style to match the printing, with a purple morocco inlaid with brown, which much took our fancy; and a little Book of Hours, on which was stamped VNG DIEV PAR TOUT AYMERAY ET LOYALLE LVY SERAY, which, with its dark morocco cover well ornamented, and its silver clasps decorated in niello, seems to be fit for a princess. It is on these Books of Hours that every conceivable kind of ornamentation in the way of bookbinding is expended. One has an elaborately-carved side of cherry wood, with raised niches and figures of saints; this is valued at £60. Another, with a border of carved pear-wood, has a carved ivory centre, and silver clasps of delicate workmanship. A third is of white velvet, with silver ornaments and enamel work of great beauty;-but we might catalogue these by the dozen. One old manuscript with wonderful illuminations has been rebound in peau de truie in a most creditable manner; part of the ancient binding has been preserved, and with the old clasps give the volume quite a middle-age character. In fact, turn where we willwhether to the large volume ornamented with the good design in carved box-wood, or to the great folio with its steel hinges and bosses, or to the Bible in its beautiful cover of ebony and bright iron in one and all we see evidences of a ruling taste which cannot tolerate a bad production, and which, without going to extreme lengths, seeks in every way to add the charin of variety. To Messrs. Mame & Co., of Tours, we can conscientiously give almost equal praise. Their case (in the French gallery facing the nave) is filled from one end to the other with very fine examples of the best kind of bookbinding; they also seem to rejoice exceedingly in Grolier patterns, and among theirs we find the most harmonious and well-formed patterns in the Exhibition. They do not inlay scarlet morocco in green, or emerald green on white with a red edge ; but when they use two colours, as in the example in the middle case, La Tourraine, they place an ornament of purple on a quiet-looking orange-coloured cover, or a brown pattern upon sage green. A large Missale Romanum is an excellent example of our meaning. Messrs. Mame also have numerous Books of Hours: one in ivory with silver ornaments, and another in pure white ivory with carved bands across it, are delicious pieces of work. M. Cornillac, of Chantillon, exhibits a case of books of devotion very fairly bound; they do not, however, suggest any particular remarks.

In the Austrian department, Mr. Habernicht, of Vienna, sends a collection of large folio and quarto volumes, which are bound in thorough German fashion. The Kaiser Album-with its pressed leather ornaments, and gilt bosses, and coloured shields, and queer devices of all kinds— is certainly a book to look at ; and so is the Frühling's Album, which lies near it; and the huge Heilege Schrift, with its decorations of cast steel. With workmanship not over neat, and with too much elaboration of detail, and too much gilt metal work and colour, these books have nevertheless an original and bold look, and are really fine specimens of binding. They must not be judged by the same rules as Mr. Bedford's or Messrs. Gruel's books, but must be taken by themselves. Mr. Charles Girardet, of Vienna, exhibits a collection of Albums which are beautiful specimens of ornamental work; they are mostly designed by Professor Van de Nüll, who shows great aptitude for book decoration. One Album, bound in deep red velvet with a border of gilt metal and bosses of malachite, claims our best praise; and a book of Austrian National Songs, with its raised leather work and beautiful metal castings, struck us as original and very excellent in its work. Messrs. Breul & Rosenberg and Mr. Klein-all of Vienna-also send wonderful examples of bindings as applied to Albums, in which expense seems the last thing thought of. Precious stones and gilt metal work, carved box-wood and ivory, oxidised silver and aluminium-all are brought into play, and certainly with good effect.

We walked leisurely through the Prussian and other German book Courts, but in them could find nothing worthy of mention.

We have before us a reprint, from the Official Book, of the whole of the awards in the Printing, Binding, and Stationery Classes, given in the current number of our contemporary, the Stationer. This places within the reach of all in the trade a very useful record for reference.

Some of our contemporaries have fallen into error upon the subject of the recent changes in the tariff in the United States, as affects importations of printed books. An addition of 25 per cent. was never contemplated. Ten per cent. additional was proposed, but this proposition was not adopted. It would seem by the Tariff Bill, dated August 1, received by last mail, that the duty stands at 20 per cent. ad valorem, instead of 15 per cent. as before. The 15 per cent. duty had, of course, a very depressing effect upon our exportations; but as yet it is impossible to say how much of the falling off was due to the general decline of trade consequent on the war. Even civil wars, however, must at last come to an end; and we shall then, no doubt have some important revisions of the whole tariff. The object of the Legislature has undoubtedly been to obtain revenue; duties, therefore, which are purely protective, and which, like the book duty, bring in but an insignificant amount to the treasury, may be expected to be the first to undergo modification.

The death of Mr. Charles Griffin, the principal of the publishing house of Griffin, Bohn, & Co., at the early age of 42, will be a matter of great regret, not only to a large circle of friends, but to the trade generally. The late lamented gentleman was, we believe, the second son of Mr. Richard Griffin, the founder of the house of Richard Griffin & Co., of Glasgow. Until the last two years he successfully conducted that business, securing for it a leading and well-recognised position as a publisher of scientific and literary works. Upon his quitting Glasgow for the


purpose of devoting his energies to the business from London as head-quarters, a farewell banquet was given in honour to him by the Glasgow fraternity, by whom he was greatly respected. As a man of enterprise, kindly feeling, and literary judgement, his loss will be deeply felt- almost as much by his new friends as by those from whom he had so lately parted.

The Life of the present Bishop of Oxford, for some time announced as in preparation by Messrs. Saunders & Otley, has become, we understand, the subject of a Chancery suit between the Bishop and his biographer. We learn that Mr. Shutte, the Author of the forthcoming work, applied to the Bishop to furnish him with some letters, on matters political and ecclesiastical, written by the latter. The Bishop declined to furnish them, and, an angry correspondence having ensued, filed a Bill in Chancery against author and publishers, praying that the defendants may be restrained by injunction from printing or publishing any letters written or sent by the plaintiff to any correspondents or correspondent, or other persons or person, and that they may be ordered to deliver up to the plaintiff all such letters. It appears that some of the letters were written as early as the year 1813. Our readers are, no doubt, aware that, as to literary works in manuscript, there is no limit to the term of copyright. Private letters cannot, we believe, be published without the writer's consent; but whether, in the case of letters on public affairs which the writer has permitted to appear in the journals, permission to reprint can be withheld, is a point on which we will not venture to anticipate the Vice-Chancellor's decision.

Mr. Collins's extraordinarily exciting novel, No Name, is shortly to appear in 3 or 4 volumes. If our information is correct, the Author obtains a sum for the copyright that has not been equalled for a single work of fiction since Scott's best prices.

Mrs. Gaskell's new and long-promiscd novel, we observe by the announcement of its simultaneous publication in America, is to be entitled Sylvia's Lovers.

It appears from the returns lately issued, that the declared value of the stationery, paper, and pasteboard exported during the first six months of the present year was £326,506, against £298,615 in the corresponding period of last year. This is a considerable increase, considering the depression in all branches of our export trade; but the amount in the corresponding period of 1860 was higher than in either of these years, viz. £373,461. Of course the paper duty repeal has had no effect on this part of the paper trade, as in the case of paper exported the duty was returned in the shape of drawback. It is, however, interesting to observe that, in spite of the cheapness of the raw material abroad, English manufacturers, thanks to English machinery, skill, and enterprise, can compete with the foreign paper maker in the market of the world. By far the greater portion of these exports go to British India and Australia; but our readers, no doubt, know that in neither of these places is any special favour shown by the Government to English productions. The book export returns we have already alluded to.

BY GEORGE AUGUSTUS SALA, Author of The "Seven Sons
of Mammon," "Twice Round the Clock," &c.
"The episode of Moumou, the Poor Porter's Dog, is among
the most pathetic things we ever read, and we commend it to
any of our fair friends who may desire that young ladies' luxury,
'a good cry.' Once more we counsel our readers to peruse
Mr. Sala's last production, which, for its size and its cleverness,
may take much the same rank among his works as the 'Christ-
mas Carol' does among those of Dickens."-LITERARY GAZETTE.

"There is a genuine air of homespun earnestness about such
a picture as the following, which, though it might have been
written by Dickens, has more in it of Mr. Sala's personal bias."
Tinsley Brothers, 18 Catherine Street, Strand.

The aim of the translator has been to give the meaning and idiom of the Greek as far as possible in English words. The book is printed in paragraphs (the verses of the authorised version are numbered in the margin), the speeches by inverted commas, and the quotations from the "Old Testament" in italics, those passages which seem to be poetry in a smaller type. It is entirely free from any motive to enforce doctrinal points. Five large impressions of the volume sufficiently test its value. The price now places it within the reach of all classes.

** Well worth the notice of the Country Trade and Canvassers.

J. R. Smith, 36 Soho Square.
