    1/-?Prior to decimilisation (1968-1971), UK books were priced in shillings, or shillings and pence, where 20 shillings equals one pound and 12 old pence equals one shilling. Shillings were indicated with a variety of suffixes, e.g. 3s, 3', 3", 3/ all mean 3 shillings. Any number after that is additional pence, usually 6 (half a shilling) but sometimes 3 or 9 (a quarter of a shilling or three-quarters of a shilling).

    hc?Hardcover. Used for all hardbacks of any size.
  • Type: ANTHOLOGY
  • Notes: The full text and images of this edition are available at The Internet Archive. The digital copy does not contain images of the outside covers (original or not), maybe not inside covers. The default display shows two pages at once, which appear to be front and back of each leaf (title page on the left; every odd-number page on the left; etc). "Morley's University Library" is presented on the first three non-blank pages, which probably show the inside front cover and the front free endpaper. That promotional essay ends with a two-column list of First Year's Volumes and Second Year's Volumes, numbered 1 to 12 and 13 to 24, with this one listed thus (quote): 23. Ideal Commonwealths: More's Utopia; Bacon's New Atlantis; and Campanella's City of the Sun. March, 1885. Publication date 1885-03-25 is thus implied by the essay subheading (quote): In Monthly Volumes, One Shilling Each, Ready on the 25th of each Month. The Introduction, p[5]-8, closes "H. M." and "March 1885".
