Transcript PREFACE. IN preparing the following Price List I have adhered to the principle of admitting upon its pages only the most salable articles of my own manufacture, excluding everything for which there is not a well established and recurrent demand either in the Stationery or Artists Material Trade of the United States. I commend to the favorable notice of the trade the Line of Rulers, Triangles and T. Squares made at my factory at Geroldsgruen, Bavaria, which for accuracy and exquisite finish is superior to any other line of similar goods in the market.

The new penholders, Nos. 5471-5477 and 5481-5487 are also deserving of consideration. Among lead pencils several new series have been included, some of which have already, to a limited extent, been sold in the United States, while others are offered for the first time. The greatest number of these will be found on pages 18 to 19 of this catalogue, classed as "Low Priced Imported."

My new "Terpsichore" pencils, No. 5384, meet an increasing demand for a Program Pencil of fine quality and finish at a moderate price, while Dermato- graphic Pencils, Nos. 5785, 5786, 5790, 5791, supply the want of the surgeon and anatomist of a pencil suitable for drafting on the human skin. Many articles are now offered boxed or packed after improved methods, an 1 which can not fail of making them more convenient to the dealer and, f instances, more acceptable to the consumer, besides lessening the chance
