Tht.' most obvious udvnntage that
come to the store nntl its patrons by
thi drincj' of quarters is that of loca
tion: it now stands at the most accessible
shopping point for people in almost all
the residential parts of the city.
The :;et great advantage is that ol
size: its nvre cnmmi'diou? quarters en
able it to carry a larger stock of current
booUs American and foreign, and of
rare book-, and r,f fir-r edition? as well.
The stationery department shares in this;
it- stock N larger and more attractively
An Exhibition Gallery
Then, too, the larger space has al
lowed the introduction of a novel fea
ture: an exhibition gallery for the display
of groups of books to which some par
ticular event or occasion may give an
especial interest: and this gallery is so
arranged at the rear of the store, as to
light and shape, that photographs, draw
ings, and paintings used in illustrations
are there admirably shown.
A Traditional Principle
Recent commercial method- hae de
stroved many traditions of book selling;
books have come tn be looked upon by
many as only one of a thousand forms
of merchandise. Hut the SCRIBXHR
