United States Government Publications, Vol. 3 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from United States Government Publications, Vol. 3It was originally intended that this periodical should be published with regularity and promptness at least once in each month. This intention has not been carried out, because the former low price of subscription was found only sufficient to pay the cost of printing. It is absolutely necessary in order to secure practical utility, that the original design should be adhered to.Many publications of the Government are of the highest importance, and it frequently happens that the existence of a valued work is not generally known until the edition printed for distribution is exhausted. Section 3809 of the Revised Statutes provides that:If any person desiring extra copies of any document printed at the Government Printing Office by authority of law shall, previous to its being put to press, notify the Congressional Printer of the number of copies wanted, and shall pay to him, in advance, the estimated cost thereof; and ten per centum thereon, the Congressional Printer may, under the direction of the Joint Committee on Public Printing, famish the same.The public at large derives no advantage from this valuable privilege, because the Government makes no announcement of its publications in advance or otherwise. In future, this omission will be supplied by this journal - a feature which it is believed will be appreciated by many and particularly by members' of the book-trade, who will thereby be enabled to secure at cost price many works of increasing value, such as the Reports of the Court of Claims, Decisions of the Land, Patent, and Pension Offices, Opinions of the Attorney-General, Catalogue of the Army Medical Library, and other works of a scientific and technical character, not published as public documents for free distribution.In order to carry out these reforms and otherwise improve the usefulness of this Monthly, it will be necessary to increase the subscription price to an amount which will yield a partial compensation to the Editor for services which will require his entire time and attention.The price for 1887 will be $5.00. Vol. I (as soon as number a is reprinted) and Vol. 2 will be supplied at $3.00 each.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
