ENGLISH PUBLISHERS' DEPOT,
New York Emporium for Standard Literature.
Messrs. SCRIBNER, WELFORD & CO.
Have the pleasure to acquaint their friends and customers, and the public generally, that the arrangements connected with their removal to their new and elegant store in the most accessible and central position on the great metropolitan thoroughfare,
No. 654 Broadway,
are now complete. They consequently hope to be favored during the season now commencing with a visit from all who, by business, taste, or professional pursuits, are interested in books and literature, feeling confident, as they do, that in their most extensive and varied stock, offered both at wholesale and retail, there will be found attractions for all, such as no other establishment of a similar character can equal.
Among the departments of their business to which they desire to call the attention of purchasers, are—
I. NEW ENGLISH BOOKS.
The supply of these is regular throughout the year, and embraces every publication of interest to American book-buyers or literary men, comprising an assortment of the latest gems of the great English Publishing Houses, secured at the earliest possible moment.
II. STANDARD AND LIBRARY BOOKS.
Their most expensive and valuable stock of books of this nature includes consignments from the leading publishers of Great Britain, for whom Messrs. SCRIBNER, WELFORD & Co. act as special agents, and they are consequently enabled to furnish their books at a lower rate than copies can be imported for direct from England. In this branch they would freely indicate their carefully selected collection of
Choice Library Books, richly bound
by the best London workmen. Superb and Illustrated Works, Books of Poetry, Embellished Literature of all kinds and of the most recherché description, which is continually receiving accessions by every packet.
III. BOHN'S STANDARD LIBRARIES.
Messrs. SCRIBNER, WELFORD & Co. are the agents for this "world renowned series," unrivalled for its combination of intrinsic excellence with commercial cheapness. They keep the whole series of the various Libraries (Classical, Standard, Scientific, Antiquarian, &c.) constantly on hand for the supply of the trade in cloth, and a large assortment of the most desirable volumes elegantly and attractively bound in calf gilt. Complete Catalogues of the series are to be had on application.
IV. EXECUTION OF SPECIAL ORDERS
for English books for the Trade, Public Libraries, Institutions, Colleges, &c., or Private Libraries. Messrs. SCRIBNER, WELFORD & Co. can confidently recommend this much to gentlemen needing books from abroad, as it is now under the supervision of Mr WELFORD, whose long connection with the Trade is known to most book-buyers in the United States, and gives them unusual facilities for the supply of orders difficult of execution, or involving a knowledge of the Book Markets of Europe, on the most favorable terms.
Monthly Lists of new receipts and arrivals are published by Messrs. SCRIBNER, Welford & Co., and will be forwarded by mail to any address. English Old Book Catalogues received, and supplied for one year to gentlemen forwarding $1 for postage in advance. Special orders dispatched every week, &c. &c. &c.
