These covers fit perfectly all sizes of books. They are all ready for use—properly gummed—and do not have to be cut. They are made of a special paper, manufactured exclusively for these covers, which is admitted to be the best for wear, and also for cleanliness, as it is glazed and cannot readily be soiled. They are not easily torn, for when adjusted to a book all exposed edges are of double thickness.

Do you not have to buy three sizes to cover Histories, Readers, Arithmetics, &c.?

Look at the book covers you are using and see how they stick to covers; they must injure the books.

One size will fit Arithmetics, Histories, &c., and the new paper is acknowledged to be heavier, tougher, and better than any other cover paper used.

" . . . Wonderfully condensed . . ." "It reads like a romance." "Can be finished in less than an hour, yet gives a full bird's-eye view of a country and people. The author's style is charming." "Accidentally running across your cute little History of Spain, I was so taken with it as an epitome of the sort that I have long believed there was room for, that I would like to see what else you have. So please mail me a couple of sample copies of your weekly, as I have not seen that yet."

"Every school should have a course in Spanish History at this time."
