INTRODUCTION.

For over fifty years efforts have been made to change American copyright laws in such a manner, as to recognize the right of an author to the product of his brain, even though he should not happen to be a citizen of the United States. A bill giving authors of all nationalities copyright protection in the United States, under certain conditions has just become a law, and will go into effect July 1st, 1891.

The complete laws on copyright of the United States will be found in this work, which is issued for the information of publishers and authors in general; and also to call attention to the fact that the F. H. GILSON COMPANY, Nos. 54 to 60 Stanhope Street, Boston, Mass., is prepared to execute orders for the complete manufacture of books of all descriptions. (See advertisement, page 32, which kindly read.)

Boston, Mass., March 6, 1891.
