Editor of "Book-Auction Records"
writes as follows:

"Many thanks for advance copy

of B.A.R.

I am more than pleased with it as now produced, and it does you very great credit in every way."

We are proud to receive such a letter, more so
especially from the fact that there are few, if
any, greater critics of typography than Mr.
Frank Karslake.

Now, rightly or wrongly, we feel convinced that,
whilst keeping up the quality in every respect, we
can save you money in the real economic sense;
that is to say plainly: we can produce your cata-
logues for less than you are at present paying.

We may be wrong, but we should like to be
proved so. It need cost you nothing (we will
refund the stamp for postage). Will you, there-
fore, kindly send us a copy of your last catalogue,
telling us the quantity you send out, when a
quotation will be sent you immediately.
