NOTICE AS TO REPORTS.

By order of the Executive Committee, the following prices have been fixed for the reports; they are about sufficient to pay the cost of printing and postage. Vol. 1 (1878), postpaid, paper, 50 cents; cloth, 75 cents. Vols. 2 to 28 (1879 to 1905), postpaid, paper, 75 cents each;

cloth, $1.00 each. Complete set to date, Vols. 1 to 28, paper, $20.75; cloth,

$27.75.

Each member of the Association will receive, as soon as published, and without cost to him, one copy of the proceedings for each year of his membership. A bound copy will be sent, unless the Secretary is otherwise directed. Members desiring extra copies, and new members desiring back reports, will be charged the above prices.

The great number of applications for sets of reports from libraries and educational institutions, and the small number of copies of many of the volumes on hand, render it necessary to restrict the furnishing of complete sets to those Bar Libraries and other general libraries in which the reports will be of most use. Applications should state the size and character of the library and the class of readers using it; and also what volumes (if any) are already on hand. When such applications can be granted, the reports will be furnished to libraries without expense other than postage or express charges. The reports will be published each year about February 1st.

JOHN HINKLEY, Secretary. 215, North Charles Street, Baltimore, Md.
