The second literary revolution coroigU
in a still fanner very great reduction

prices, while, at the same time, the av
erage quality of the books will continue
to M materially improved.
HOW CAN THESE THINOs BE?
To attempt an impossibility could of
course result only in failure, and it would
De useless, in our own interest, or in that
of the many thousand customers who
have shown us such earnest favor, and
have given us such great patronage, to
announce or promise what could not be
performed. We have dealt frankly with
our customers in giving facts concerning
costs and profits in the past, and we do
it now, by giving facts and figures illus
trating how we can afford to still further
FACTS AND FIGURES.
Please note at the start, our aooloerv
for not having done heretofore what we
new propose to do, and consider
1st W e published our first book only
so long ago as January, 1879. Previous
to that time we were entirely without
experience in book publishing. What
knowledge we had of the business was
gained in the newspaper publishing and
2d We were also at that time almost
entirely without capital, and until so late
as February, 1881, we labored under the
difficulty of being without capital even
approximately adequate for the magni
tude of the enterprise we were undertak
3d Our entire scheme was in opposi
tion to all previous methods of publish'
ing and book-selling. And from the be
ginning to the present, we have had the
combined bitter opposition of almost the
entire book-publishing and book-selling
Classes or tne united States.
4th Starting thus with a minimum of
knowledge, and less capital, and with
such immense onnoaition. we thought it
best, in the interest of both the reading
public and ourselves, that we undertake
too little, rather than to much; partial
success would be better than total failure.
5th In spite of our want of resources
and of experience, and in spitejof oppo
sition, and with the necessity of organi
zing and training our nete forces, and. nec
essarily trying many experiments, all of
which no one could expect would be uni
formly successful, we have from January
1, 1880, to June 30, 1881. manufactured
and sold nearly 2,000,000 volumes of stan
dard books, for which we have received
the considerable sum of $709,521.33.
Cth. In a circular issued in January of
the present year we made the following
statement: "The public have so long
been taught to believe books to be ex
pensive luxuries and low prices impossi
ble, that incredulity has from the first
been the greatest obstacle to the progress
of the Literary Revolution. It was easier
to make good books cheap than it waeto
make people believe it could bedone.We
could readily have made prices even low
er than they have been, but for the ter
rible tax we have been compelled to pay
to this incredulity."
We have during this period, from Jan
uary 1, 1880, to June 30, 1881, paid for
advertising, the large sum of $140,878.93.
This immense item necessarily has to
come out of the profits we make on the
7th Although our scheme originally
' embodied the principle of selling directly
to the consumer, and doing away with
the exorbitant cost of middlemen, we
have not undertaken to put aside the
book-seller and the book agent altogether,
because a large portion of the book-buyers
of the country have got into the hab
it of looking to them for their supplies,
and if we were to supply the wants of
such customers at all, we were compelled
to do it through these ordinary channels.
But we have endeavored to induce or
compel these middlemen to work, as we
have been doing, on a more reasonably
small percentage of profit (the immensly
increased sales at the reduced prices,
even with the smaller commissions, rwil
ly give the book-neller a larger net profit
than he formerly had). Accordingly, we
have during this peeiod, from January 1,
1880, io June 30, 1881. allowed to the book
sellers and book-agents commissions av
eraging about 23 per cent, of our total re
ceiDts. In other words, in addition to
the" $709,521.32 we have received from
the public for our books, the public has
also paid to the middlemen the large sum
of $177,380.33 simply for handling these
books, making the total cost of the books
to the consumer $886,901.03.
8th From these statements you can
readily 6ee that if
From the total amount
which the public has
paid for our books... $SSci,901 .05
Wo deduct the amount
we have paid for ad
vertising these books.$U0,878.93
' And the amount paid
to middlemen for
handling the hooks.. 177,380.33
We have a total deduction of.... 318,269.2(1
And a remainder of $56S,W2.S9
Thus it is evident that if the public had
bought these books directly from vs, the
unnecessary expenses of advertising, and
of paying middlemen for handling them,
being avoided, the books would have cost
them only $568,642.39, being-almost 36
per cent, less than the $886,901.65 which
they have paid for them, and our net pro
ceeds would have been none the less.
A BETTER ILLUSTRATION,
The above figures show clearly the pos
sibility of a great reduction from our
prices as heretofore given without dimin
ishing our net income, but they do not
necessarily show that it is possible for us
to manufacture and sell books at such
low prices without loss to us. As we
have never made pretense of publishing
books from charitable or philanthropic
motives, and do not wish our friends to
think we are doing business at a loss, we
will grve a conclusive and interesting ill
ustration of how we can afford these low
LIBRARY OF UNIVERSAL KNOWLEDGE.
After a labor of nearly two years by an
able corps of American editors and wri
ters, for whose services we have paid
nearly $30,000, we have within the brief
period of less than ten months made eo
fectrotype plates for the Library of Uni
versal "Knowledge at a further cost of
nearly $30,000, making a total invest
ment on this work of about $60,000.
This labor all being done and paid for,
tShe 15 largB octavo volumes, making the
largest Cyclopaedia ever published in this
country, can be manufactured at a cost
' per set of IB volumes of
These .electrotype plates which we
have manufactured will readily print
100.000 copwa and then by slight repair
ing will print from 60,0uO to luO.OOO ad
ditional eopiea, but to make our estimate
absolutely safe we will assume that it
will be necessary to manufacture a new
set of eclectrotype plates after 60,000 cop
ies have been printed. Thus we must
add to the above cost of the manufacture
of one set of the book ($5.tS), an addi
tional $1 aa the proportionate coat of the
plates for each set of IS volu men. A fur
ther item must also be added to cover ex
penses of office, handling, shipping, etc,
which experience leads us to estimate be
low 50 cents per set, but aa we must do at
least a toft business we will add. instead,
for this item another $1, malting the to
tal cost of manufacture and handling the
15 octavo volumes of the Library of Uni
versal Knowledge $7.96.
1 us you see that if we eell a copy of
this g. at Encyclopedia even at the net
price ot v10, we still have a net profit of
over $2. As we have already sold about
15,000 sets in advance of completion, we
think it very safe to estimate (and we
have heard of neither friend nor enemy
who makes an estimate lower) that we
shall sell, as fast as we can munufaoture
them at least 100,000 sets, and allowing
our figures above given to be correct, we
have the comfortable sum of $200,000 to
cover contingencies, and dividends to our
As some of our friends may question
whether our estimates above given are
perfectly safe, and as we have heard of
some instances where the accuracy of fig
ures previously given by us has been dis
puted by our enemies, we will say that
the cost of the paper is put at 8 cents per
pound, the cost of press work at $1.20 per
thousand impressions, and the cost of
binding at 16 cents per volume,
THE PRACTICAL POINT.
We now come to the practical point in
which you are interested how you may
get the books you wunt at the lowest pos
Jt is evident that it can only be done
by your doing away, so far as you are
concerned, with our immense expendi
ture for advertising, and with the com
missions which we or you are compelled
to pay the middlemen, if you buy through
Another extremely important point in
enabling us to afford the lowest possible
price is that we receive quick returns for
the investments we have made.
You readily see that we have invested
about $60,000, cash, before we are able to
offer you a complete set of the Library of
Universal Knowledge at any price. We
must sell a great many thousand sets be
fore we can even get back the money
which we have invested, to say nothing
oi the reward which we must have in
some measure, for our labor and the cap
ital of the stockholders involved.
A large portion of the public still pt.r.
sist in getting their supplies of books
through the middlemen (who must be
paid for their services) instead of from us
direct: and as a large expenditure for ad
vertising will also continue to bo neces
sary, in finding out new customers, we
must continue to noia to our present re
tail prices, in order that we may bo able
to pay these enormous expenses for ad
vertising and for commissions to middle
men. But because we are thus compelled to
tax bookbuyers generally with these
heavy expenses, there is no occasion why
we should continue this neavy tax upon
you individually if you choose to unite
with us in avoiding it.
OUR PROPOSITION TO YOU.
We therefore maWoyou this proposi
tion: If you will sehdyour order for the
Library of Universal Knowledge (either
for yourself or for any number of friends
and acquaintances), so that we shall re
ceive the same on or before the first day
of September 1881, we will accept such
orders at a discount of one-third from
our published list prices, making net pri
ces to you as follows:
LIBRARY OF UNIVERSAL KNOWLEDGE.
For the 15 vols., in cloth, net $10 1)0
In half Russia, sprinkled edges 13 33
In half Russia, gilt top.'.,.. 15 00
Iu full library sheep, marbled edges 16 66
Orders sent to us under this offer will
be accepted and filled by us under the
following terms and conditions:
1st We do not in this case, as has com
monly been our custom, require that re
mittances shall accompany the orders.
Payments may be made at any time that
may suit the convenience ot the purchasr,
on or before the delivery of the books to
him, and not later than January 1, 1882.
2d But in making deliveries of the
books we shall give precedence to orders
which are accompanied by remittance in
full payment, shipping first those , for
which payment is hist received.
3d After rilling all orders which have
been fully paid for at time of order, we
shall in shipping give precedence to or
ders which are accompanied by a pay
ment of 10 per cent, or more on account
of said order, the ballance then to be paid
on or before delivery of the books.
4th Thereafter shipments will be made
to those who have sent no payment with
the order, precedence being given to those
whose orders are first received by us, pay
ment of course being required on or be
fore delivery of goods.
5th We shall not consider orders un
accompanied by any remittance as bind
ing upon the person making it, if from
any cause he is unable to take the books,
or 'shall not then desire to do so; but in
case payment is not made promptly when
such person is notified that his books are
ready for delivery, he will first forfeit
his position on our delivery list, his name
being transferred to the end, and in case
payment is not ma.de promptly when his
name is again reached and he is notified,
he will then forfeit the privilege of pur
chasing at less than our full list prices,
and no order will thereafter be accepted
from him under any similar special offer
which we may in the future make on
other of our publications, unless the same
is accompanied by payment.
ABOUT OUR OTHER PUBLICATIONS.
. As the present stock of "our miscella
neous publications is now comparatively
limited, and as our entire manufacturing
resources will in all probability be for
months to come taxed to the utmost by
the manufacture of the Library of Uni
versal Knowledge alone, we cannot un
dertake to make an offer similar to the
above upon the books covered by our mis
cellaneous list, except to the extent of our
stock in hand. Until our supply is ex
hausted we will accept in connection
with an order for the Cyclopjedia, under
the above offer, orders for any of our
miscellaneous books at the same rate of
discount (one-third) from our list prices,
but in all cases we shall require that or
ders for miscellaneous books under these
terms shall be accompanied by the cash,
as these books can be delivered at once,
and cash orders will certainly soon ex
haust our supply.
Any remittance received for miscella
neous books the supply of which may
have by that time been exhausted, will
either be returned promptly, or the
amount will be applied toward the pay
ment for the Library of Universal Knowl
edge aa may be directed.
In connection with the special term
given above, plent note particularly the
1st We look to nom dirtet for vour or-
' der, and we also ask you to aoust in spred-
ing me anowieoge oi tbe existence, char
acter, and low prices of our publication.
The larger our sales, and the more prompt
ly they are wade, the more rapidly caa
we go forward manufacturing other
equally good book at equally low prices.
e will gladly furnish you any reason
able quantity of catalogues and circulars
2d The terms herewith given, are lim
ited strictly to orders which shall be re
ceived by ua on or before September 1,
1881. Order received after that date
must postively come under our usual list
prices or terms to clubs, which latter are
limited to 10 per cent., or, at the utmost,
15 per cent, discount from our list prices.
3d We are all well aware of the fact
that very many book-buyers have not at
a moment's command even $10 which
they can invest, however great the in
ducements. This offer gives you the priv
ilege of making payment tchen it suits
your convenience, at any time before Jan
uary 1, 1882.
4th The '-Library of Universal Knowl
edge" was completed on July 15th, 1881,
and we are now delivering the same in
the various styles of binding advertised.
It is a verbatim reprint, in large type, of
the last (180) London edition of Cham
bers's EncycIopadia, with copious edi
tions (about 15.000 topics) by American
editors, the whole combined under one
alphabetical arrangement with such ill
ustrations as are necessary to elucidate
the text. It gives the amount of matter
about 10 p-r cent, more than Appleton's
Cyclopedia (price, in cloth, $80,00), and
20 per cent, more than Johnson's Cyclo
paedia (price $51.00, in cloth). For the
general reader it is undoubtedly the best
Encylopajdia ever published, whatever
the price. Specimen pages will be sent
free upon implication. AMERICAN
