the registration and deposit of original works, 3. In the case of books published in parts, each part of the original work must be

registered and deposited in this country in the manner required by the said International Copyright within three months after the first publication thereof in the

Pirated Copies.-All copies of any works of literature or art wherein there is any subsisting copyright by virtue of the International Copyright Act and this Act, or of any order in council made in pursuance of such Acts, and which are printed, reprinted, or made in any foreign country except that in which such work sball be first published, and all unauthorised translations of any book or dramatic piece the publication or public representation in the British dominions of translations whereof not authorised as in this Act mentioned shall for the time being be prevented under any order in council made in pursuance of this Act, are hereby absolutely prohibited to be imported into any part of the British dominions, except by or with the consent of the registered proprietor of the copyright of such work or of such book or piece, or his agent authorised in writing. $ 9.

The provisions herein before contained shall be incorporated with the International Copyright Act, and shall be read and construed therewith as one Act. (Foregoing Act, 7 & 8 Vict.]

French Translations and Dramatic Pieces. During the continuance of the convention, and so long as the order in council already made under the International Copyright Act remains in force, the provisions herein before contained shall apply to the convention with the French, and to translations of books and dramatic pieces which are, after the passing of this Act, published or represented in France, in the same manner as if Her Majesty had issued her order in council in pursuance of this Act for giving effect to such convention, and had therein directed that such translations should be protected as hereinbefore mentioned for a period of five years from the date of the first publication or public representation thereof respectively, and as if a period of three months from the publication of such translation were the time mentioned in such order as the time within which the same must be registered and a copy thereof deposited in the United Kingdom. $ 11.

Rates of Duty.—The rates of duty shall not be raised during the continuance of the convention; and if during the continuance of the convention any further reduction of such rates is made in favour of books, prints, or drawings published in any other foreign country, Her Majesty may, by order in council

, declare that such reduction shall be extended to similar articles published in France. $12.

Doubts.--And whereas doubts have arisen as to the construction of the Schedule of the Act of 9 & 10 Vict. c. 58, it is hereby declared, that for the purposes of the Act every work published in the country of export, of which part has been originally produced in the United Kingdom, shall be subject to the duty payable on "works originally produced in the United Kingdom, and republished in the country of export," although it contains also original matter not produced in the United Kingdom, unless it be proved to the satisfaction of the Commissioners of Customs by the importer, consignee, or other person entering the same that such original matter is at least equal to the part of the work produced in the United Kingdom, in which case the work shall be subject only to the duty on “works not originally produced in the United Kingdom." $ 13.

Lithographs, dc.—The provisions of former Acts are intended to include prints taken by lithography, or any other mechanical process by which prints BOOKS-continued. or impressions of drawings or designs are capable of being multiplied indefinitely

By 0. C. Feb. 11, 1854, it is stated, that their lordships have communicated with the Lords of the Committee of Privy Council, with a view to the alteration of the order in council giving effect to the treaty of international copyright with Hamburg.

My Lords are informed that in the opinion of the lords of the council, Her Majesty in council does not possess the power to amend the order in question, or any of the orders in council which have been passed under the Act 9 & 10 Vict. cap, 58, (page 57] so as to make the duties to be levied under such orders in council in accordance with those imposed by the Customs Tariff Act.

As regards, however, books admitted under the authority of Orders in Council from foreign countries with which treaties of international copyright have been concluded, my Lords are pleased to direct that such books shall come in at the rates of duty imposed by the Act 16 & 17 Vict., cap. 106 (this tariff], although such rates are lower than those mentioned in the treaties, and sanctioned by the Orders in Council.

With regard to prints of a larger kind-when a dozen would weigh more than 1 lb., such prints, if admitted at the rate imposed by the Tariff Act of last Session, would be subject to a higher duty than that stipulated for in the treaties.

My Lords are therefore pleased to direct that as regards prints admitted under the treaties referred to, the duty sanctioned by the orders in council shall only be levied when it would be lower than that imposed by the Act of last Session. In all other cases they should come in at the rate imposed by this tariff.

SIZES. Folio is the largest size, of which 2 leaves, or 4 pages, make a sheet. Quarto (4to.) 4 leaves or 8 pages. Octavo (8vo.), 8 leaves, or 16 pages. Duodecimo (12mo.) 12 leares or 24 pages. Octodecimo (18mo.) 18 leaves, or 36 pages.-Ed.

AUTHOR'S PROPERTY. It has been decided by the most eminent judges that an author has at common law, and according to the eternal rules of justice, a property in what he writes, so that no one can print it or reprint it without his permission. The statutes which have been passed upon this subject, from the reigu of Queen Anne to the reign of Queen Victoria, have been in abridgment of the rights of authors, giving them, by way of compensation, improved remedies when their property is invaded.-Lord Campbell, Dr. Milman, and Mr. Grote's decision on the Question of 'Underselling,May 19, 1852.
