From the introduction: “This book was originally planned as the textbook for the advanced grade examination of the Stationers’ Association. It deals with those subjects of retail practice with which the aspiring student must become conversant when he has learned all about the merchandise of his trade. However, now that it is written, this volume is much more than a textbook for the student. It is a volume which should become indispensable to every retail proprietor and to all who hold positions of responsibility in retail businesses. It is not confined to the stationery trade, for the authors of the various sections have treated their subjects in a general way with the result that, although some of the examples which are used refer to stationery, this book is of practical use to every retailer.”
