BOOKSELLERS TO THE HONOURABLE EAST-INDIA COMPANY,
ST. AUSTIN & SON, BOOKSELLERS TO THE EAST-INDIA COLLEGE.
Per Herts so 35
The inconvenience experienced by the Publisher in binding together the parts as they are separately published, has induced the Editors to have the FIVE PARTS already published bound together, and to complete the First Volume of the Observer.
It is hoped, however, that no one will consider this a symptom of decay in our literary system, or unkindly conclude from the circumstances of the Editors making up their books that they are about to shut up shop, or that the Haileybury bank has stopped payment. The very contrary is the state of the case, and the intention of the parties. The Editors of the next term will commence their new ledger without the encumbrance of bad debts, or ill-will incurred by their predecessors.
An Index containing the names of the several Contributors, and their respective contributions, as upon that will depend in a great measure the interest of the Publication, is added; and the First Volume of the “Haileybury Observer” is issued to the Public with the fervent hope on the part of its earliest supporters, that it may be the first of a series of volumes, which may have the merit of creating some interest among, if not of shedding some credit upon, the members of the College.
