[The Cover Page of Ford’s Plays]

John Ford
Harper's Family Library
University of Nashville Collection, Vanderbilt University Special Collections

The first twelve pages of this book contain advertisements for other titles in the Harpers Family Library series, many of which were written by British authors like Ford. American publishers were not required to pay royalties on British reprints and thus could offer them at a low price. Harperkept their prices low by being both publisher and printer.
