The first four titles scheduled for February, 1960, are: "The Religion of Thomas Jefferson" by Henry Wilder Foote ($1.25); "Hunted Heretic: The Life and Death of Michael Servetus, 1511-1533” by Roland H. Bainton; “The Legacy of the Liberal Spirit: Men and Movements in the Making of Modern Thought” by Fred Gladstone Bratton and “Theodore Parker” by Henry Steele Commager (each $1.95).

Books in the Beacon Series in Liberal Religion will be printed in the same format as the Beacon Paperbacks. They will be published at the rate of four a season, at the same time as the Beacon Paperbacks. The price range will be from approximately $.95 to $1.95. The first four titles are all reprints, but from time to time, original paperbacks may be published in the series.
