| A Literary Register and Monthly Catalogue of Old and New Books,

and Repository of Notes and Queries.

Tol. 2.

New Yo


No. 1.

ADVERTISING : $13 per page ; $7 half page ; and $4 quarter.

SUBSCRIPTION $1 per year, Postage free.

To SUBSCRIBERS.— The American Bibliopolise is published monthly, and is printed on fine tinted paper, with “old style " type, each issue consisting of thirty-two pages, or more, as in the December number (64 pages). Its contents are always varied, embracing all the Literary News of the day, with much of curious information about old and rare books.

NOTES AND QUERIES, an interesting department of the Bibliopolise, is not confined to literary topics, but embraces a great variety of subjects—bibliographical, historical, literary, antiquarian, etc., etc.

Each number contains a complete list of New AMERICAN PUBLICATIONS, with notices of the principal foreign issues; also, CATALOGUE or Old and New Books, from which may be selected good books at low prices; Announcements of Auction Sales of Books, Catalogues of which may be obtained, and thus opportunity afforded to purchase books not elsewhere obtainable; and, finally, PUBLISHERS' ADVERTISEMENTS, from which may be selected all the new books published from time to time. The Bibliopolist is mailed to subscribers for one year, free of postage, for $1.00,

To ADVERTISERS.—The Bibliopolist circulated amongst intelligent and reading men, with whom bookbuying is a necessity. It has lived (not only lived but flourished) for one year, and it now opens upon its second year with still better prospects. The GREAT ADVANTAGES we offer to advertisers in the Bibliopolise cannot, we think, be conceded to any other similar publication. First, our terms are low; second, we are willing to take, at the publishers' net prices, Books in exchange for ADVERTISEMENTS. The rates for advertising, mentioned above, are cash rates. Rates, in books at ner prices, are as follows: One page, $16.00; half page, $9.00; quarter page, $5.00. The same arrangements will be made with dealers in second hand books, giving us the privilege of selection. With such an arrangement as this, bublishers and booksellers can pay, at a minimum cost, what would otherwise be required in cash. For a succession of insertions, rates will be reduced.

This arrangement will also apply with English, French and German Publishers and Booksellers.
