PROSPECTUS.(18,241
Each No., on the average, will contain ten or twelve Pamphlets;
thus reducing the price of each pamphlet to about sixpence.

The peculiar advantage of this plan is, that it forms an imperisk-
able Record of the most valuable Pamphlets, and will also offer,
through the means of Clubs and Institutions, a very extensive cir-
culation. It is also intended to record such Pamphlets as will be
useful, not only at the present time, but at future periods.

Old Pamphlets will occasionally be inserted, if very valuable and scarce.

French and German Pamphlets will be translated and occasionally inserted.

Communications to be sent to Red Lion Court, for the Editor, [Post-paid.)

Complete Sets may be had bound, or in Numbers 68. 6d. each.

In No. xxx, is published a complete and classed Inder of all Pamphlets contained in the first 30 Nos., which will give a correct idea of the nature and value of the Work.
