Complete Sets of The Living Age,
At a Large Discount.
The publishers have a small number of Complete Sets of LITTELL'S LIVING AGE, which they offer at a large reduction from former prices.
As the Sets cannot be reprinted, the last opportunity is now offered not only to procure them cheaply, but to procure them at all.
The last number of the year 1872 completed the Fourth Series, and the One Hundred and Fifteenth Volume, from the beginning of the publication. The regular price of volumes las been, in numbers, two dollars per volume, or, bound in cloth, three dollars per volume. The publishers now offer the Complete Sets (115 volumes), as follows:
In numbers, or sheets, ready for binding, at one-half the subscription price, viz: $1.00 per volume; or, bound in black cloth, gilt backs, at $1.75 per volume.
A few surplus Sets of the First Series (36 volumes), and of the Second Series (20 volumes), remain, which will be sold separately, at the same rate, if desired. None of the Third or Fourth Series can be sold separately, and the publishers can no longer supply any odd volumes, or numbers, published prior to Jan’y 1, 1868. A few of the Sets of the First Series, only, are bound in red leather backs, cloth sides, which will be sold to those preferring them to the cloth bound sets, at the same rate per volume. With this exception, those desiring a leather, or half leather binding, should purchase the numbers and have thiem bound in such style as they may prefer.
It is hardly necessary to say to those acquainted with the work, that the same amount of such valuable reading cannot otherwise be purchased with three times the money for which it is here offered ; and while this reduction in price places Sets within the reach of individuals possessing or forming private libraries, the attention of those interested in State, City, Town, College or School Libraries, is particularly called to this last opportunity of supplying their shelves with a complete work which it is believed no library in the country can (under this offer) afford to be without.
Applications for Sets should be made immediately.
When packing boxes are necessary in forwarding Sets, the cost of the boxes will be added to the bill.

Content to bloom in native bower, He the All-pure, receiving men unholy,
Although its place be small. Sharing their joys, and weeping as they weep. God make my life a little song, Yea, doubt it not; each soul deserves that

God make my life a little hymn and scorning;
Of tenderness and praise; Turn not away in weariness or pride;
Of faith--that never waxeth dim, When the light dawns of life's eternal morning, In all his wondrous ways.
