We are close to the day when we must stop taking orders. The few remaining sets of the Britannica are selling so fast that if you want to be sure of getting a set, NOW is the time to order it. And it is NOW or NEVER if you desire to own this great work in its most convenient popular "Handy Volume" Issue, printed on genuine India paper. These remaining sets are the very last in the whole world, printed on the famous India paper, that can be offered. They are printed on the last India paper manufactured be- fore the war made it impossible to get the special kind of flax from Belgium, Ireland and Germany and hemp from Russia for the making of India paper. No more of these raw materials is available, or will be procurable for years after the war, for the making of India paper. And the only sets of the Bri- lannica for sale anywhere in the world, printed on this beautiful paper, are right here in America. Orders have greatly increased in the last sales have jumped to an average of more than sets a week. This fact makes it certain that the few remaining sets will not last beyond 2 or 3 weeks, If you know the Britannica, know how useful it will be to you, and are quite sure you should own a set, order it im- mediately. This is your, only assurance of getting it. When the last day is announced on which we can accept ciders wilh any prospect of filling them, it is reasonable to expect a great rush of orders to come in at the eleventh hour. This was shown last June when a slight increase in the price was made on account of the increase in the cost of bookmaking materials, and we received over orders after the; last day.. We are giving you warning NOW to tave you any disap- pointment in never getting one of these very last sett. In this case when the last set is gone you will not be able to buy a first-hand set of this great library of knowledge, printed on genuine India paper, at any price. Today in England, Australia and other countries people who failed to buy the Britannica when they had the same chance that you have now are adver- tising for it and have to pay whatever premium may be put on it by any owner who can be induced to sell his set Don't wait until the eleventh hour. Don't put off ordering until "tomorrow." Take the time today to send in the "re- serve order" coupon and then you will be sure of getting a set. You should satisfy yourself that the Britannica will be use- ful to you in your business or work, increasing your mental efficiency and earning power. You still have a chance to know what the Britannica is and what it will mean to you. Go at once to The Red Cross Drug and Book Ltd. and examine the Britannica for yourself. You can there see a complete set, investigate its contents in your own way, run through the index of facts and ham all about this great work. You can compare the large-size, higher-price Cambridge issue and the popu- lar "Handy Volume" Issue, which sells for about 60% less. You can also select the style of binding you prefer. We don't want any one lo order the Britannica unless he is positive that it will be useful to him. We could sell many thou- sands more sets if more India paper for printing them could be obtained. Hence we desire that every single one of the remaining sets shall go to men and women who will find the Britannica a prac- tical everyday help.
