The subject of collecting prints that may be common to-day and
rare to-morrow is one which in these days enters very considerably
into the regions of practical and domestic politics. On the principle
that nobody keeps what everybody else has, so an etching or a
print, which is published by its thousands, often becomes extremely
rare in a very short space of time. Many of them are well worth
the keeping, well worth the framing, and well worth the hanging.
There is a wealth of drawing worth framing from the pens of such
men as Phil May ::' :: Too much good work is just now
allowed to waste.-The Sketch.

of the paper from top to bottom The height of Pad and Holder will
be kept uniform if each written sheet is placed as torn off underneath
the Pad, the base of which is now thick blotting paper instead of the
old and useless cardboard. The ordinary sloped position when in use
keeps Pad and Holder together.-One Shilling each.*

and is. for postage of one dozen Pads. The postage on one Pad-
Holder is d., and one Pad-Holder and one Pad together 3d.
