The business guide; or, Safe methods of business

The business guide;



The purpose of this book is embraced in its title. The Business Guide, or Safe Methods of Business. The necessity of having a book comprising the practical in business, including forms, points of law, hints and helps in transacting business successfully, together with the most useful tables for rapid computation or for. reference was forcibly im- pressed upon the mind of the author while acting as principal of a Business College, in which he had ample opportunity to study the needs of our young men before entering the active business world. 

After mature thought his purpose to relieve the felt want of business circles and individuals, in general, took shape in the first edition of the Business Guide. That the public has appreciated his efforts is seen in results better than told in words.

 The many succeeding editions, the large sales, and the interest of the public clearly show that this volume is filling a place that no other fills. Although the author has finished his labours and has passed to his reward, yet Nichols' Business Guide is having an ever-increasing educative influence among the masses. Twenty Years have passed since the first edition was published.

 These have been years of intense activity and of great progress in all lines. Notwithstanding the success that has attended this volume, our constant effort is to keep it an all-around up-to-date book, a book every item of which can be re- lied upon as correct. This edition has been rearranged and revised and printed nom an entirely new set of plates. 

We are determined that the Business Guide shall continue to be the leading book on practical business. The advice and assistance of able and competent specialists in different lines of business have greatly aided us in making improvements and in giving accurate and at the same time boiled down statements. All the best and recent volumes on business have been consulted and valuable suggestions are taken therefrom. Much of the book has been rewritten, while every part and line has passed under the scrutinizing eye of the critic. 

All commercial and legal forms are of the very latest. Great pains have been taken to make all illustrations apt and instructive. We are free to say without fear of contradiction that this is decidedly the best book in the market for the money. 

The Business Guide is adapted to all classes, not to a certain profession or class of men, but to all who are called upon to do business. And whom does this not include? 
With the recognition that real merit and true excellence must be depended upon for success, and with the confidence of an appreciation of diligent, painstaking labour and research, this revised edition is sent forth to the millions who may thereby be led to do the right ihing, at the right time, in the right place and thus turn defeat, failure, loss of reputation, property, or home into intelligent actions, profitable investments, pleasant homes and prosperous, happy and successful lives.
