Émile de Girardin was unusually direct in presenting price information. At the foot of this upper printed wrapper we see a long dissertation on the different ways a reader could subscribe and the different price levels. There is also the mention at the very end of the pricing paragraph that he would print 500 copies of the volumes on very fine paper by hand press at roughly double the cost of regular copies.
