The Last 1895 Talk to Librarians.

WE

E have had one year's schooling and experience in Indexing, but have not graduated by any means. What we don't know on the subject, if printed in pamphlets and bound in volumes of average size in the RUDOLPH PAMPHLET BINDERS, would make a fair start for a moderate-size library.

Speaking of this Binder invention reminds us that THE LIBRARY JOURNAL has either a very large circulation, or else about everybody who takes it read the second page of cover last month. Better still, many of those who read accepted our offer and are sampling the Binder. Changing the subject slightly, the

RUDOLPH REVOLVING INDEXER

is winning its way into popular favor, not only in libraries, but in other lines we had not thought of. To illustrate we have recently supplied four complete Indexers to newspaper offices. "What for?" To keep an index of the contents of their papers, their advertising cuts, and also of their collections of pictures of eminent men and women. Doubtless this will in time include a long list of librarians who are using either the RUDOLPH REVOLVING INDEXERS, the RUDOLPH INDEXER BOOKS, or the RUDOLPH PAMPHLet Binder, or all three.

Seriously, we are delighted with the success of all these inventions and their reception by progressive librarians.

All correspondence promptly and cheerfully answered.

Very truly yours,

137-139 Wabash Ave., Chicago.

EDW. G. ALLEN'S

London Agency for American Libraries,

28 HENRIETTA STREET, COVENT GARDEN,

LONDON.

(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.

No expensive sub-agencies at home or abroad. Foreign books on easy terms.

BINDING.

Cheap and Durable for Circulating Libraries. Specially Strong for Books of Reference. Superior
Style for Works of Art. Imitation Antique for Rare Old Books. Calf Extra in Every Variety.
Best Half-Binding for General Library Use. Pamphlets Bound at Cheap Rates. Law-
Books in Law Calf. Cheap Binding in Cloth. Hard-Grained Roan, etc. Dilapi-

dated Binding Neatly Repaired. Deficiencies of Rare Books Supplied in
Exact Fac-Simile. Library Stamps to Order.

We have been, for the last twenty years, personally cognizant of Mr. Allen's faithfulness 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.

HIGGINS' PHOTO MOUNTER.

[graphic]

The new adhesive for mounting photographs, etc., tissue and scrap-
book 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 con-
sistency, 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 uni-
formly, adheres at once and dries quickly. Will not warp, cockle nor strike
through, nor change the tone nor injure mounts. Requires no prepara-
tion-always ready for use.
