Price per Sealed Packet, containing Nine Pens, 38, 6d..
The Patentee warrants these Pens to write, without mending for an indefinite period
and with excellence for a longer time, than any other Pens whatever. He also warrants
them to write faster, and (if the Writer's time is of any value) to be cheaper, than any
other pens whatever. Finally, he warrants them to produce Writing more superlatively
beautiful (and, if necessary, more exquisitely fine), than can be produced by any other kind
of pen whatever, whether it be the goose or crow quill, the Birmingham or any other
Metallic Pen, or the costly Ruby and Rhodium (selling at from 15s. to 30s. per single pen).

The Pens in the Packets are those with, 1. Medium Points ; 2. Fine Points; 3. Broad Points ; and, 4. Perfectionated Soft with Medium Points. The Packets containing the second and the fourth kinds are most recommended for, by far the greater number of writers.

The Patent Perryian Pens are sold wholesale and retail by JAMES PERRY (Patentee of
the Perryian Pens), 37, Red Lion Square, London. They may also be had genuine, throughout
the whole of the British Empire, and in every place abroad, of all Booksellers, Stationers,
Silversmiths, Jewellers, Toy and Hardware-men, Writing-case Manufacturers, Perfumers,
Druggists, &c. by only observing that the Pens are in a sealed packet, having on it the
Patentee's signature,-

The Imitation of this Signature is Felony.

A Pair of Pillar Compasses with Patent Pencils.

S. MORDAN & Co. espectfully solicit the public atiention to the frauds which are daily practised upon them as regards eir Patent Ever-Pointed Pencils, and the leads for refilling the same. The spurious pencils bear e appearance of being made of silver, when, in fact, in many instances they are nothing but white etal, and the action so bad as to cause great annoyance to those using them. The public are also uch imposed upon with the spurious articles sold for leads, being nothing more than antimony and anish dust, which is of no comparative value to the beautiful, and in fact invaluable Cumberland ad; also their not being of a size renders them useless. To guard the public against the above positions, the patentees are induced to make the following remarks:ist. Look for the London Goldsmith's Company's Hall Mark, on each silver pencil case. 2nd. The name of S. Mordan and Co., Patentees and Makers, on the body of the case. 3rd. The genuine leads contained in leather or paper boxes have a yellow belt, bearing S. M Co.'s seal. Ath. The spurious leads have the word “for” or “as," in small characters, before the name S. mordan & Co. Attention to this will immediately detect.

Portable Pens and Pen-holders. The Portable Pen Boxes also have a yellow belt, bearing S. M. & Co.'s seal. The Pen-bolders ar the London Hall Mark, which ensures their being silver. The spurious pen-holders are nothing t white metal, which the acid affects, and consequently become a nuisance in use.

Cedar Pencils. These pencils contain the same quality of pure Cumberland lead as their silver Ever-Pointed encils. s. M. & Co. have been induced to go extensively into the manufacture of this article, with proved machinery, from the very frequent applications for them from artists, architects, and engiers, who are desirous of obtaining with certainty the pure Cumberland lead. We are also tronized by his Majesty's Stationery Office, London. N. B. Please to ask for S. Mordan & Co.'s pure Cumberland Lead Pencils, which bear their me stamped upon them ; by so doing, purchasers will ensure themselves a genuine article

The Traveller's Protector Lock.

Padlock. The Luck manufactured by S. Mordan & Co., with seven guards, almost universally employed by Government, and fully appreciated by scientific men, is yet little understood by the Public. To obtain for it the patronage it deserves, S. Mordan & Co. earnestly solicit attention to the following points, in which it excels every other lock :

1. Its absolute inviolability by picking, or procuring a duplicate key. 2. The portability of the key.

3. The infinite variety of which the key is susceptible, and the power of producing it by an apparatus which of necessity causes every successive key to differ from all which have preceded it.

4. The difficulty of imitating the key, which is so great, that good workmen have failed to make a successful copy when the key has been placed in their hands for the purpose. | 5. The impossibility of taking an impression, which is so easy in every other key, with sealing was.

6. The importance of every part of the key, which completely excludes those fertile sources of fraud, skeleton or duplicate keys, so easily obtained, and which prevents the imposition too often practised, of exhibiting apparent security in the key, but which has no counterpart in the lock.

7. The unlimited durability of the lock, which arises from its acting by mere pressure, instead, as in all others, of rubbing. This lock was never known to wear out, or to become sensibly altered by use. This in the end renders it the cheapest.

8. Safety is given in the absence of the principal to private stock, private papers, &c. The most serious losses take place by the use of duplicate keys, which enable the dishonest to re-lock to lull suspicion ; the lock made by S. Mordan & Co. is a sure preventive.

Scientific gentlemen, and others, are respectfully solicited to visit the manufactory of S. Mordan & Co. 22, Castle Street, Finsbury, where the truth of all these statements will be rendered evident from an inspection of the lock, and the machinery by which it is made. The following is a list of the prices at which locks may be obtained from respectable dealers in every town of the United Kingdom : Letter Bag or Portfolio
