Abstract

WE are always averse to indulging in any controversy that involves the booksellers. At the Brighton Conference a wellknown representative of the Booksellers' Association delivered an address in which he asked for the cooperation of booksellers and librarians. Our present President, Mr. Jast, assured him on behalf of the meeting that it will be forthcoming whenever possible. In America the Association of Booksellers works in the closest harmony with the libraries, using their publications, and booksellers and libraries mutually advertise and otherwise assist each other. It is rather painful to read in The Publishers' Circular, which may or may not represent British booksellers as a whole, that the Editor regards libraries as an expensive method of disseminating fiction which ought to be bought by readers that libraries interfere with and compete with booksellers in a disastrous manner, and more to the same effect.
