But I do not know whether we are quite ready to bring it up to date, in the light of some of the diseases that are just showing up lately, and on which we are still doing research.
Mr. BUCKLEY. In the earlier days, as we all recall, we had 2 additional volumes, 1 on diseases of cattle, and a similar book on the diseases of the horse, but since the 1942 yearbook came out, I imagine that it has largely superseded the information in those 2 books, because it was so much later.
Mr. Horan. What is the status of the account on yearbooks? Has there been an overall profit in agricultural yearbooks?
Mr. BUCKLEY. Yes, sir. The price at which we sell all publications is set by law, and covers the cost, plus 50 percent. We have a 50 percent markup on anything which we sell.
Mr. HORAN. That takes into account, does it not, the fact that the Department first publishes the book, and all you do is to publish the reprints?
Mr. BUCKLEY. Yes, sir; that takes into account only the running of the sales copies. The Department bears the initial cost.
To come back to the yearbooks which we have on this list, Mr. Chairman, we have the 1941 yearbook, entitled "Climate and Man," with 18,246 having been sold.
We have the 1940 yearbook entitled “Farmers in a Changing World," and 15,025 have been sold.
We have the 1939 Agricultural Yearbook entitled "Food and Life," and 12,840 have been sold.
Then we have the 1938 yearbook entitled "Soils and Men," and we have sold 11,392.
Then we have the 1937 and 1936 yearbooks, both bearing the same title of “Better Plants and Animals," issued in two parts. Of the 1936 volume, we have sold 9,643, and of the 1937 volume, we have sold 8,918.
Mr. Horan. At this point, we shall include that list in the record. (The matter referred to is as follows:)
Agricultural yearbooks, sales as of Apr. 30, 1954
Mr. HORAN. If there are no further questions, I want to thank you gentlemen for being here for this presentation.
Thank you, Mr. Buckley, and Mr. Addison.
