THE publishing and distribution of books in the United States has seen many changes in the last decade and seems now to be entering into a period of uncommon activity. During the war the number of new titles decreased, owing to the rising costs of manufacture, and the total number has not yet reached the level of 1914. At the same time the number of volumes being sold from the old and new titles has very rapidly increased and it may safely be judged from the government census figures that the number has doubled since 1919.
