The first volume of the new library edition of Thackeray's works, is this day issued by Messrs. Smith, Elder & Co. This consists of the first volume of “Vanity Fair,” and is illustrated with twenty engravings and eighty-nine wood. cuts. The publishers have amply redeemed their promises. The book is printed in the best style on fine toned paper, with all the original and some new illustrations ; the woodcuts being printed from the original wood block, instead of, as hitherto, from stereotype casts. The series, which will comprise about thirty volumes, will doubtless be welcome to the constantly increasing number of admirers of our great humourist, as it will not only contain all Thackeray's writings " which it is believed he would desire to be in. cluded," but new and interesting matter in possession of the publishers.

the works of these benefactors of our race, and had invested largely in the contraband editions, and was accordingly careful, before crossing the channel, to remove them from his travelling case and stow them in his pockets, hoping to escape a personal search at the English custom-house. He might have saved himself this trouble and some nervous anxiety. The luggage was not examined on landing, nor were any questions put to us by the officers of customs at Dover, and we transferred our baggage to the railway un. challenged.

From what I saw on this and previous occasions, I am convinced that the introduction of the cheap foreign reprints of the works of English authors is carried on to an enormous extent, and it appears to me doubtful whether such sums, as I believe are given by the foreign publishers for the right of re-publication, are at all equivalent to the loss the proprietors of copyrights must suffer by this wholesale introduction of editions which directly and indirectly must seriously affect the sale of the English editions.

I am Sir, yours &c., A Tourisr. [So long as English publishers keep up the English standard books at the present unreasonable high pitch, and at the same time, for a paltry sum, allow copyright works to be reprinted by Baron Tauchnitz, they must not be surprised if English tourists avail themselves of the opportunity they have of purchasing such books cheaply.]

CORRESPONDENCE.

A CAUTION. To the Editor of the BOOKSELLER. SIR, -In reply to the advertisement for “Col. lins's Family Atlas, 21s.,” in the last number of the BOOKSELLER'S Books Wanted," I received the enclosed.

Not quite liking the look of the note, I referred to the Directory, and found that the address given was a post-office. I thereupon sent a messenger instead of the stamps, and was, of course, told that the people at the post-office knew nothing of Mr. Griffin--they only received letters for him.

I then wrote Mr. Griffin, stating that if the book was sent me, stamps should be forwarded for the amount; or if sent by a messenger, pay. ment should be made on delivery.

I need scarcely say that no reply has been received, and as the same circumstance may occur to other members of the trade, you may perhaps think it worth while to cantion them.

I am, sir, yours &c..

EDWARD STANFORD. Charing Cross, Oct. 16.

[We have received from other quarters letters signed “W. B. Duncan, 179, Sloane Street, Chelsea” (a post-office), and “E. M. Massey, 18, York Road, King's Cross” (also a post-office), both of which appear to be written by Mr. Stanford's correspondent. The best way for those persons who live in the country to check this practice, will be, not to send money to any person who is not known, before receiving the books, to to get some correspondent in London to pay for the books on delivery.] THE TAUCHNITZ EDITIONS OF COPY.

OBITUARY. MR. FREDERICK LAWRENCE. - This well-knowi gentleman died on Friday morning, October 25th, after a short illness. Mr. Lawrence, who was called to the bar in 1849, was for some time in the house of Messrs. Simpkin, Marshall and Co., and afterwards in the Printed Bool Department of the British Museum. He wa the author of “A Life of Henry Fielding, and was at one time a frequent contributor t periodical literature. He was, perhaps, mor generally known as a politician; an elegant an effective speaker, he some years ago took a active part in several liberal movements in th metropolis. A most genial, kindly-hearted mar he was esteemed and liked by everybody wh knew him, and in the literary and profession: circles in which he lived.

Oct. 11. M. Frederic Dübner, aged 65, a cel brated German classical scholar, long residei in Paris. His obsequies were celebrated on t] 15th, at the Church of Montreuil, when I Ambroise Firmin Didot pronounced a mo eloquent elegy over his departed friend. said the deceased was born at Hoerslegan, ai from a child pursued with ardour those classic studies which Gottingen and Gotha offered h under various learned professors, especial Jacobs, of whose Anthology it was his privile half a century later to revise a new edition 1 the press. On returning from a tour in Italy, t deceased became aware that M. Didot v about to issue a new edition of Stephen's Gre Thesaurus, and he offered to share in the labı of its production. Of his conscientious labo on this M. Didot speaks in terms of high prai “Others," he says, “will tell all he has di for my library of Greek authors, to which Düb was pleased to say his life was attached.” made France his adopted country, and delighted to see young professors following in footsteps.

To the Editor of the BOOKSELLER. Sir,-We have hitherto supposed that the in. terests of British authors were jealously guarded by our copyright laws, but returning last week from a continental trip, I had opportunities of observing with what impunity and to what an extent these laws are evaded. The railway. trains and steamers by which I travelled were, as usual at this season, crowded with British tourists returning homewards, and the prevalence of literary tastes among the majority was amply proved by the display of the Tauchnitz cheap reprints of the works of Tennyson, Dickens, George Eliot, and other popular authors. My travelling companion had a great admiration of

PROSPECTS OF THE SEASON.

In accordance with our annual custom, we have collected the titles of those books which are promised, or are likely to make their appearance, during the ensuing season. The list is nearly as long as that which we presented last year; but there are not so many important works announced as we could desire. Recent political discussions have not been favourable to study, nor have monetary affairs been propitious. To these two causes may be chiefly traced the deficiency of which we complain. There is, however, good ground for hope that, disturbing causes having now been removed, the book trade will spoedily resume its wonted activity.

“The unqualified praise bestowed on the productions of
William Kaulbach by the highest authorities in art, has
been endorted by the Commissioners of the Paris Exhibi-
tion, who have awarded the great gold medal to the
author. Encouraged by this, the publishers have resolved
on the issue of an edition in the highest style of art and
regardless of expense. They have accordingly arranged
for the execution of a series of copper-plate engravings
from the original drawings, and have secured the services
of the most eminent artists in this department, the selec-
tion being determined not simply by their possession of
the highest manipulative skill, but further and chiefly by
their ability to enter into the meaning of, and adequately
to interpret these exquisite creations of the poet and the
