There will be first prize of 30,000 pesetas (*5,790) and a second of 15,000 pesetas ($2,895). Besides this, each of the two successful authors will receive 500 copies of the printed edition of his work. It rests with the Centennial Commission to. determine the num ber of copies in the edition of each of the two prize works, and what disposition is to be made of the copies that are not given to the authors. These (the authors) keep the right to re-print and to sell their works, and to translate them into other tongues.
