These books excel all other school publications of the kind ever issued from the American press. The combined product of the best talent and highest scholarship, embellished with every useful and attractive adjunct of pictorial art, and constructed with especial regard to mechanical excellence, they have, as was anticipated, met with extraordinary success, and already attained a popularity unprecedented in the history of school-books. Specimen copies for examination, with reference to introduction, if approved, will be sent to Teachers and Committees at the following rates:
