Messrs. Dulau have been large purchasers of all the books of the NONESUCH PRESS from the beginning of that remarkably successful venture. They have thus been able to supply NONESUCH Books when the Publishers themselves and the Booksellers have had no copies left-an example of the special service which Messrs. Dulau afford to book-buyers.
Of the books already published by the Nonesuch Press-Meredith's Letters to Alice Meynell; The Book of Ruth; Love Poems of John Donne; Cupid and Psyche; Paradoxes and Problemes of John Donne; Ten Sermons by John Donne; the Complete Works of Congreve; Anacreon; Letters from W. H. Hudson; Poems of Andrew Marvell; Poems of Henry Vaughan; Genesis, by Paul Nash-Messrs. Dulau occasionally have copies, and they are always ready to report and quote for these books.
The remainder of the NONESUCH programme for 1924 is set out below. It is essential that orders for these be placed without delay, for in no case can a late-comer expect to be supplied, although Messrs. Dulau have placed large orders for all the titles, and their facilities are certainly unsurpassed. Particular attention is drawn to the proposed issue of a NONESUCH Bible.
ELIZABETH RAPER'S RECEIPT BOOK, 1770. Now for the first time printed. Edited, with extracts from her cipher journal, by the late Major Bartle Grant, her great-grandson, and with a drawing by Duncan Grant, her great-great-grandson. Edition limited to 850 copies. Price 12s. 6d. net. August

THE APOCRYPHA, in the James I version. With title page, head piece and tail piece designed and engraved on copper, from which they are printed, by Stephen Gooden. Small folio, printed for the Nonesuch Press in a special version of Plantin's type by the Oxford University Press. Limited to 1,200 copies. Price £1 7s. 6d. Autumn.
This volume is issued separately, but it is intended to be a part of a NONESUCH Bible, to be completed in four further uniform volumes. These volumes will be limited to 1,000 sets; they will cost, to subscribers, £1 10s. each (they contain on an average 33% more pages than Apocrypha); and they will be paid for only as each volume is published. This completion of the Bible, the publishers announce, is contingent on the whole edition being subscribed forthwith-which will doubtless happen. The price to subscribers for the whole five volumes will be £7 7s. 6d.; and the price after publication will be raised immediately to a minimum of £8 8s. Orders should be placed at once.
