Annoucements VOLTAIRE FOUNDATION PUBLICATIONS The American agents for The Voltaire Foundation have suffered a financial failure. Many North American libraries, as a result, have not received copies of works published as of 1 July 1975. These are the Complete Works o] Voltaire, volumes 2, 7, 53-55, 81-82, 85, 125; the Correspondance complete de Jean Jacques Rousseau, volumes 1-22; and the Studies on Voltaire and the Eighteenth Century, volumes 30-37, 41-139. (The above volumes only are currently in print.) All university staff concerned with eighteenth-century studies are urged to ask their librarians to confirm in writing to the Foundation if their libraries are subscribed to the above important sets. If so, it would be most desirable to find out if the volumes listed have been received, and to contact The Voltaire Foundation, Thorpe-Mandeville House, Banbury , Oxfordshire, England, stating which is the last volume held of each series. Should your library not possess some or all volumes of these sets, please request your librarian to subscribe to them as soon as possible. In case of any problem, kindly notify Professor Giles Barber at the Foundation. MCGILL BICENTENNIAL HUME CONGRESS A Congress commemorating the bicentennial of the death of David Hume will be held at McGill University, Montreal, from September 29th to October 3rd 1976.

Those wishing to have papers considered by the Program Committee should submit completed papers (abstracts should be included) before May 15, 1976. These papers must represent new work and be available for publication in the Congress Proceedings, assuming that efforts to arrange suitable publication are successful.
