London Agency for American Libraries,
28 HENRIETTA STREET, COVENT GARDEN,
(FORMERLY RICH & SONS.)
EDW. G. ALLEN devotes himself entirely to library business. His long experience enables him to execute the orders of correspondents promptly, cheaply, and with thorough efficiency. His connection with all the Book Dealers in the United Kingdom gives him the command of the British Book Market, and qualifies him to serve his customers with special advantage, and to bring promptly under their notice all the stores of Literature, old and new, on sale in Great Britain.
Books Supplied at a Small Commission on the Cost Price, with the usual Trade deductions, and forwarded by the quickest and cheapest routes. Second-hand Catalogues by early Mails, and no Commission charged on Orders from them. Periodicals and Newspapers Posted Promptly.

Libraries of Parliament, Ottawa, Toronto,
and Quebec. Amherst College. Boston Public Library.

Cheap and Durable for Circulating Libraries. Specially Strong for Books of Reference. Superlor
We have been, for the last twenty years, personally cognizant of Mr. Allen's faitnfulness to the interests of his American customers. When a resident in Washington, ten years ago, we found that the immense Congressional Library largely supplied its shelves through Mr. Allen's London Agency. Many of the extensive libraries belonging to the Universities and Colleges in the East have also secured their Foreign Books from the same source, and we have heard from the officers of these Institutions frequent testimony to the scrupulous exactness with which their orders were always filled.
"We cannot, therefore, do a greater service to the Colleges and Universities of the West, to which these presents shall come, than to advise that they employ this inexpensive agency for replenishing their Libraries with English Books."-PRESIDENT WELCH, Iowa State Agricultural College.
"No better indorsement of Mr. Allen's Agency is possible than the list of leading libraries that continue to use it. For 30 years, strict integrity and unexcelled facilities have held the oid and made new patrons. The very large business built up demands only a small commission instead of the customary 10 per cent. A library can safely entrust all its London orders to Mr. Allen without getting other estimates and feel sure that it is not making a mistake."-MELVIL DEWEY, State Library, New York.

HICCINS' AMERICAN DRAWING INKS
Are the Standard Liquid Drawing Inks of the World.
They are used and endorsed by the leading Schools, Colleges and Institutes. Three-fourths of the professional draughtsmen of this country use no other drawing ink.
Jo. Pennell says of the Black Ink: "There is no ink equal to it for half a dozen reasons. From the time you open the bottle until you have put all its contents on paper you have no reason to find fault with it." HIGGINS A. B. Frost says: 66 I use a great deal of it, and it is certainly the best." ERICAN BLACKS.-Two kinds: Waterproof, white label (insoluble when dry); MOUID VORAWING and General, red label (soluble). COLORS.-Carmine, Scarlet, Vermilion, Brick Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Orange, Brown, Indigo, Violet.
AT ALL DEALERS.
(Bottles by mail, prepaid, thirty-five cents each. Color Card showing actual inks free.) HICCINS' PHOTO MOUNTER.
The new adhesive for mounting photographs, etc., tissue and scrapbook work, and general use as a substitute for mucilage, over which it has many advantages due to its superiority and economy in use. Not a starch or flour paste, but a Vegetable Glue, semi-fluid, of soft and unctuous consistency, pure white color, and free from lumps. Perfectly homogeneous, and hence the water never separates from the pulp, leaving the latter to shrivel up, as occurs in all common pastes. Spreads smoothly and uniformly, adheres at once and dries quickly. Will not warp, cockle nor strike through, nor change the tone nor injure mounts. Requires no preparation-always ready for use.
AT ALL DEALERS.

A History of the German Language
From the Earliest Times to the Present Day.
By CHARLES W. SUPER, Ph.D., LL.D.,
President of the Ohio University at Athens. Pages 326, 6x9. Mailing price, $1.50. Address O. U. BULLETIN, Athens, Ohio.
Of this work The Critic says: "Prof. Super's book, occupying the middle ground between a grammatical commentary and a philological history, supplies in a full and interesting fashion what a literary reader needs to make him conversant with the main sides of many questions involved in the study of one of the principal IndoEuropean languages. The modesty of the author is very refre ing; nowhere is there a note of the infallible commentator."
