Portfolios of Solos

A portfolio of 160 pages containing the thirty-two solo settings for Mrs. Eddy's poems which are published by the Trustees under the Will of Mary Baker Eddy, is being sent to the larger Reading Rooms. This portfolio is not to be sold and is not for sale, but is designed to provide a method for placing solos in the hands of church soloists in a convenient form for trying them over. In this way an opportunity is afforded church soloists to have solos on approval, and at the same time does away with the necessity of the Publishers' Agent sending solos on approval to Reading Rooms.

A copy of the portfolio is lent to each of the larger Reading Rooms for use in their lending libraries. In localities where there are two or more Reading Rooms, the Reading Room of First Church will receive the portfolio. In large cities, jointly conducted Reading Rooms will be provided with the portfolio, from which the other Reading Rooms, as well as soloists, may borrow as needed. Soloists who borrow the portfolio from the lending library are expected to return it to the Reading Room as promptly as possible with their order for the solos selected.

Reading Rooms in localities where there is only one Christian Science church or society may borrow the portfolio from the Publishers' Agent when soloists ask for music on approval. Librarians should see that the portfolios are returned to the office of the Publishers' Agent promptly by parcel post and wrapped carefully for protection in transit, with the name and address of the Reading Room on the package for identification upon arrival.
