EXCHANGE.

THE

HE absence of some ready medium for advertising

duplicates for exchange has been often deplored, and it has occurred to us that the usefulness of our journal might be considerably increased by the opening up of a column for that purpose. There is no reason why the column should not be made to serve a double purpose by including lists of books wanted.

Librarians who may be unable through the ordinary channels to meet with any books or volumes of which they are in want, are invited to furnish full particulars, with their name and address attached, for insertion“ free of cost ".

Trade announcements will not, for the present, be admitted into this column.
