On the Removal of the Duty on Books free pdf Excerpt from On the Removal of the Duty on Books To the Editor of The Evening Post: Sir: In the interest of the scholars and other persons in this country who must keep themselves informed of the progress of science and literature abroad, and who, therefore, require foreign publications, I advocate the removal of the duty (of twenty-five percent, ad valorem) on all foreign books, periodicals, pamphlets, and other printed matter. I am confident that all but a few interested persons will agree with me that the import duty on these articles is no longer required, either for revenue or for protection. In support of this assertion, I beg to invite attention to the following points: 1) In the United States the demand of the general reading public for news, light literature, etc., is better supplied than in other countries. The foreign publications sold in the United States are insignificant in quantity. Being articles much less of luxury than of necessity, they are mostly purchased by persons of limited income who cannot well afford to pay the additional expense for duty. 2) In the United States the duty on books, etc., is in strange contrast with the fact that enormous sums are being spent for educational purposes- and a large portion of the imported books and periodicals may be called more or less necessary to continue and complete that school education.
