New books are daily being received at the library. Some are bought with fine money, many are given, but the greater portion are purchased with the income of the various bequests left to the University for buying books. The only American publishing house which regularly presents the library with its publications is that of Ticknor and Co., of Boston. Useful works of other houses are purchased at the request of instructors and those connected officially with the library. Among the most recent acquisitions is an assortment of books in French, chiefly on educational and historical subjects. A large box of German books was received two or three weeks ago, consisting of philological works. and Greek and Latin classics. These invoices are collected by agents of the University abroad, and the volumes are bound substantially in morocco in binderies in Paris before being shipped to Cambridge.
