Abstract

WHILE there is no doubt that the system of issuing books at net prices is of great benefit to booksellers, there is also no doubt that, unless care is taken, it is a serious drain upon a limited bookpurchasing income. A few years ago the position had become so serious that conferences were held with a view to securing the exemption of Public Libraries from the net price. The attempt, as was perhaps to be expected, failed. Since that time, the system has been growing until, at the present time, practically every nonfictional book worth buying is issued at a net price.
