The Britannica will cost $11 to $19 more after 7.33 o'clock P. M., Saturday, the 17th of June. set now at present prices, before the prices go up. The advance is due to circumstances over which we have absolutely no control. Paper now costs very much more than it did before the war began. Some leathers cost 75 per cent more, and others cannot be imported—they are under embargo. So it is with all other items in the manufacture of these books.

Even before June 17th it will probably be impossible for us to supply one or two bindings—those in the most expensive leathers, because there is an embargo on these leathers and no more can be imported from Great Britain.

Now you can get the Handy Volume” issue of this great work cheaper than it will ever be again. A complete set, in any binding, will be sent you for a first payment of only $1.

HEN we arranged with the publishers of the new Encyclopaedia

Britannica for the Handy Volume" issue, we contracted for V V some sets printed on standard book paper like that used in school books and novels, for the especial use of public libraries and schools. Each volume weighs a little over 3 pounds, about twice as much as the corresponding volume on India paper, and is about twice as thick (274 inches). We call these sets "Special Economy" sets.

They cost less because the paper is less expensive than India paper—and you benefit by this saving. You can buy the “Special Economy” set-all the new Britannica-for $48 cash, that is, $10.88 less than the cash price ! of the cheapest India paper set-or for $1 down and 17 payments of $3 monthly—$12 less than the instalment price of the cheapest set on India paper. It is only fair to say that 98 per cent of our sales have been of sets printed on India paper.

It is much better to buy this “Special Economy" set of the Britannica than not to buy the new Britannica at all. If you have plenty of shelf room for these thicker volumes, if you want your dollars to go just as far as possible, buy the “Special Economy” set.

Remember all styles will advance in price on June 17th-this "Special Economy” set and each of the India paper sets. The order form on the next page shows the present low prices. Fill it in and send it to us to-day so that you may benefit by this big bargain.
