The case of The Chancellor, Masters and Scholars of the University of Oxford vs. the Wilmore-Andrews Publishing Company has been referred to U. S.

Teachers' Edition," followed by the title of the book, i.e., "The Holy Bible," together with the words "appointed to be read in the churches," and by a reproduction of its symbol or trade-mark, and that it has also imitated the "Oxford Teachers' Bible," in size, shape, binding, and general appearance.
