"FISH AND PHILOSOPHY*."
DR. JOHN M'IXTOSH,
Would inform the inhabitants of Bradford county
that he respcci fullv solicits tiOO subscribers for his local
work entitled " ITSH AND PHiLOSOPItV, or Sketches
made Diirhig a Short Sojourn in Northern Pennsylvania."
The book will consist of from 250 to 300 pages, 12m0.,
and will be bound in embossed muslin. The price will is;
$l,OO. As the work was not written to vindicate
any pai ticnlar theory, or to advance any particular inte
rest, it is difficult to say what it aims at -fio ther than 'o
help while away a leisure hour or two, in what the Au
thor hopes, not unprofitable reading.
The pages are chiefly devoted to descriptions of local
scenery : incident s while Trouting on the Schroder branch;
literary criticisms and reminiscences; conversations, de
velopments of local character, poetry and philosophical
As the publication of the book is not a question of
bread, the author can u.-e the liberty of speaking plain
In the first place, then, he cannot afford to publish the
book unaided—nor would lie if lie could ; for the simple
reason, lie is unwilling to shoulder the responsibility of
committing a—possibly—poor book to the world. * He
therefore seeks to make a corporate concern of it, and
thus share with the subscribers the odium of failure,
should it fail. It is a purely gratuitous matter, gentle
men, sign, or not sign. In the second place, the author
is unwilling to have his stock of hooks added to, by too
many hundred ropie of a work that failed to redeem the
price of il publication : neither docs he desire the hoi ror
of witnessing the aw oil spectacle of an auto-da-fe,of what
cost him so much pains and time to create ; —for lie cer
tainly would comm't to the flames what remained unsold
of the edition, should they remain too long on liis hands,
lie is determined to pay the publisher on the receipt of
toe edition, should it lie printed, asking no tavors ; and if
000 subse 'tier- can be had, l - e will do so. He can afford,
howere,'. to wait, should the 000 refuse to come to the
rescue. The MS will not diminish in value. It will i,:-
main as it has done, cherished by the owner, as was chc
islied and loved '-the poor man's one little ewe lamb,'hat
was unto him as a daugher." The author w ill ask no one
to nr. ertake to publish it on the strength of its merits :
perhaps from pride, perhaps from a prophetic apprehen
sion of its lack of merit. Time—perhaps—will determine
if he did well to be influenced by the latter conside-at'on.
The author wil' further say, that should the desired nmi
lter of subscript ems l>e obtained, lie will feel tempted to
promise an embellished frontispiece, enclosing a medallion
likeness of t lie principal character, Dr. Plum. And should
a second edition follow, he—the author—will exert all The
influence he can command to secure for the original sub
scribers a lock of that distinguished individual's hair; as
thank Heaven, he is appreciative, and, judging from his
antecedents, the author has no doubt that Plum would
gladly wear a wig tor a whole year, to have the pleasure
of furnishing to his friends so interesting i souvenir.
The publication of the book, then, is dependent on the
receipt of t;oo subscribers, and one month will be allowed
for names to be given in. if, at the expiration of that time
only one person lias subscribed, or any other number be
tween that and litin—unless very closely approximating it
—the book will not of course be expected to see the light.
But, if the entire number be obtained, those who have
signed, will, in tlnee nv lis from the closing of the sub
scription lists, be suppli - with a copy, or copies, as they
may have ordered.
Subscription lists will be opened on Monday next,:,? nil
the stores, and at the P. O. in the liorough ; and at ('. H.
DERRICK'S, at Athens. At Burlington, there will be one
at Mefsrs. LONG V MERRY'S store, and at Ulster Mr. JOHN
M ATUKK , and at Monroe. Mr. SEYMOI R PHINNEY, will act
as e ;ents. Others may be authorized.
