an increase in albums and surveys about the country. The com­
pletion of one decade of independence was felt throughout the

book, especially of the Holy Scriptures, and a great number of
encyclopedias.

The following selections are but a very small sampling which,
in the mind of the writer, is characteristic of the book market.
