Opinions of the forebb. “* Book-Prices Current'--the Whitaker's Almanack of book-buyers and booksellers." -Nlustrated London News.

“A very useful and admirably edited and printed publication.”--Morning Post.

“ Brunet, indeed, so long the book-buyer's chief delight, must yield to * Book-Prices Current.'"- Notes and Queries.

" It is beyond comparison the book-collector's cyclopædia. Its own earlier volumes, curiously enough, command very high prices."-Daily Chronicle.

“The practical utility to buyers and sellers of an authoritative annual work of reference like this requires no demonstration. The knowledge and skill displayed in this compilation merit cordial recognition."Standard.

“To all classes of bookmen, the issues of 'Book-Prices Current' may be fairly pronounced indispensable."--Literary World.

“It may be said without exaggeration, that the annual volumes of Mr. Slater's admirable compilation are indispensable to such as desire to follow with any closeness the record of sales and the movements of the secondhand book market."-Time's.

"Valuable to booksellers, and still more so to book-buyers. This useful work has long established its position, and must have saved many a collector a bad bargain."-Athenæum.

“The work supplies a finely printed record which will be valued, not by the bookseller merely, but by the collector and librarian.”-- Daily Teicgraph.

“The book collector's Bille,”- Pall Mall Gazette.
