[208] Our books — the bound volume of our papers, and our March and April numbers on “Treatment of prisoners,” bound into a volume — have been very highly commended as beautiful specimens of the book-maker's art. Mr. Geo. W. Gary has executed our printing in admirable style, and Mr. L. Lewis has done our stereotyping very satisfactorily. We are also under special obligations to our binder, Mr. W. S. Simons, for the excellent taste he has displayed in getting up our styles of binding, the skillful manner in which he has done the work, and the very moderate rates of his charges.

We thus have Richmond made books (paper, printing, stereotyping, and binding), which are really beautiful, and which will compare favorably with those produced by the great publishing houses of the country, while we are enabled at the same time to sell them at a lower price than such books usually command.

It may be well to repeat that we are willing to exchange our bound volume for the first six numbers of our papers — the subscribers paying the postage each way, and paying us 50 cents for cloth binding, 75 cents for half morocco, and $1 for half calf.
