THE removal of Jas. R. Osgood & Co. to their new and commodious quarters, where they have ample facilities for the development of their heliotype process, is to be noted in the column of business changes.
THE sixth thousand of "What Can She Do?" was sold by Dodd & Mead within one week. Its success has also enlivened the sale of "Barriers Burned Away," and fresh orders for that work have been received from jobbers.
ROBERTS BROS. have nearly ready the "Personal Recollections of Mary Somerville," the lady naturalist, whose long life was one of acquaintance and friendship with the leading men of her time. It is a most enjoyable book. They are also to publish, in a little volume of 36 pages, Mr. Cranch's remarkable poem, a 'libretto," of "Satan," of which Mr. Brooks says that it is as though the spirit of Shelley had written a new second part of "Faust."
SHEPARD & GILL are to publish immediately Wilkie Collins' brief American story, "The Dead Alive," which he has written during his stay here. His hero is an Englishman, but his heroine is a Yankee girl, and there are many studies of American life and character.

NOTES IN SEASON.
WE are requested to state that Schem's Sta
BOSTON, MASS.-Messrs. James R. Osgood & Co. have removed from No. 124 Tremont street to their new and commodious store in the Franklin Buildings, No. 131 Franklin street, corner of Franklin and Federal streets.
PITTSBURGH, PA.-On and after January 15th, 1874, Mr. Chas. H. Smythe, at present, and for several years past, connected with J. W. Pittock & Co., will have charge of the book department of J. R. Weldin & Co., on Wood street. We congratulate Mr. Lee Mason upon acquiring so reliable an assistant.
Charles J. Doebler, formerly with J. W. Pittock & Co., Pittsburg, Pa., is now connected with Messrs. Evans, Von Epps & Co., Cleveland, Ohio.
tistics of the World, though dated November, Publishers' Board of Trade,
was purposely withheld from the market on account of the holiday trade, having been delayed beyond expectation by the typographical difficulties caused by a total rearrangement of the Tables. We understand that revised editions will hereafter be published regularly in April and October.
It is yet too early in the year to give general information as to the programme for the spring season. There is however no great promise of original American books, most of those of which we have so far heard being republications.
THE second volume of Vice-President Wilson's "History of the Rise and Fail of the Slave Power in the United States" is approaching publication in book form at the Osgoods. The Independent has been publishing the work as a serial.
Now is the day of reckoning. We trust the balance sheets will all show on the right side. But January is apt to be the "blue Monday " of the book trade.
