TWELFTH ANNUAL VOLUME,
1908.



Some pxcBB OpiniotiB of tbe 1907 VoCume.

" On the whole, the question of copyright is dealt with in a fiatis&fitory
manner. ... As far as it is possible to deal with this questian in a small com-
pass, tbe study of the law seems to be good and improving. ... In dealiiu;
with the Agency clause the editor gives some very useful hints to anthois. . . .
There are other points which are not dealt witb« but the. maii| dVKcultift afe
placed before the author."— 7A« Author,

*'Tbb Literary Year-Book for 2907 has cast aside such nseless embel-
lishments as the photographs of authors, and now is a thoroughly businesslike
and satisfactory guide. It leads off with an ' Authors' Directory,' which is full
and laudably accurate ; and it affords abundant information about copyright of
various kinds, the addresses and needs of> editors and publishers, Ubmries and
boqkMUera both in town and countiy." — Tk€ Athenosum,

" An authors' trade annual. It contains directories of authors, publishers,
periodicals ('contributors' guide'), with accounts of the law of copyright, the
methods of bargaining vrith pubUsherS) technical terms, and a great deal of
other information useful to those who earn money by writing."— 7*il^ Mam-
cJUster Guardian,

**The Bookman's 'Whitaker.' . . . Tells the literary man all that he
wants to know on the complicated subjects of agreements, royalties, agents, and
the like. . . . Added importance has been given to the section devoted to
libraries by the £act that The Literary Year-Book has recently been adopted
by The Library Association as the organ for tbe publication of the returns
of Public Ubnuies."— r^ltf Daily Graphic,

" In the variety of the subjects with which it deals it differs from and sur-
passes roost kindred publications. It is now for the first time the organ for the
publication of tbe returns for the Public Libraries, the work of which it uader-
ukes with the assistance of tbe CouNaL o^ the Library Associatiok."—
