ROLLO & ADAM'S
Selected Stock List of Recent and Important Publications.
THE RIVERSIDE-PRESS BOOKS.
Note.—Early in the year 1859, Mr. H. 0. Houghton, a gentleman of education and refinement, and intimately acquainted with the London Publishing Houses, formed a company to establish this Press at the Riverside near Harvard College, Cambridge, Mass., with the design of Stereotyping and printing for the American Publishers after the English models of typographical excellence and execution.
How readily the American Houses have put into the hands of this Company one and another of the works of our standard Authors and of those of recent important value, the following list shows. In all cases the complete and latest editions, carefully arranged, have been sent to press; while the works have been printed on highly toned paper, of faultless typography, and of beautiful finish. The issue of our authors "in a style equal to their merits," cannot fail to be popular with the reading public, while they make if new and vastly improved era in the history of American publishing enterprise.
