Great Britain, Australia, South Africa, India and Japan, it was adver

has now been sold. When any one in any of these countries wants a set.

is put on it, if he can get it at all. -
Every remaining unsold set of this great work printed on India

long as any remain, you have the opportunity to purchase the Britannica

that no more genuine India paper can be obtained for printing the Britannica.
