VALUABLE SCHOOL BOOKS,

PUBLISHED BY CHARLES J. HENDE E,

(Successor to Carter, Hendee & Co.) 131 Washington Street,

BOSTON.

BOSTON READING LESSONS, for Primary Schools.

Alterations and additions have been made in the present edition of this work, at the request of the Committee for Primary Schools in Boston; and in consequence it has been adopted, by direction of the Committee, as the common reading-book in those schools.

ELEMENTS OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR, with Progressive Exercises in Parsing. By JOHN FROst.

This work is noticed by the Boston Association of Instructers, in a letter to the author, as follows:-" We have attent examined your Grammar, and we do not hesitate to say that it appears to us better adapted to the younger classes in common schools, than any other with which we are acquainted."

GEOGRAPHY FOR CHILDREN: with eight copper-plate Maps, and thirty wood Cuts. By Rev. J. L. BLAKE.

This publication seems admirably adapted to the purposes of geographical instruction of the younger classes in schools.-Boston Recorder.

THE CHILD'S BOTANY; with copper-plate Engravings.

The value of this work, as the first step to the study of botany, has been clearly proved by its introduction into schools in almost every state in the Union.

HOLBROOK'S GEOMETRY. Easy Lessons in Geometry, intended for Infant and Primary Schools, but useful in Academies, Lyceums, and Families. By JOSIAH HOLBROOK. Tenth Edition.

ABBOTT'S LITTLE PHILOSOPHER. An invaluable work for Primary Schools. LESSONS IN ENUNCIATION, comprising a Statement of Common Errors in Articulation, and the Rules of correct usage in Pronouncing: with a Course of Elementary Exercises in these Branches of Elocution; to which is added, an Appendix, containing Rules and Exercises on the mode of Enunciation required for Public Reading and Speaking. By WILLIAM RUSSELL, Editor of the Journal of Education. (First Series.)

OUTLINES OF CHRONOLOGY, Ancient and Modern; being an Introduction to the Study of History, on the Plan of the Rev. DAVID BLAIR; with numerous Engravings. Accompanied by a Chart.

THE GEOGRAPHICAL COPY BOOK; consisting of Outline and Skeleton Maps, adapted to the use of Schools, with an Introduction, explaining the Nature and Use of Maps, in the most familiar manner. By WM. C. WOODBRIDGE.

This work is designed to assist pupils in acquiring a thorough knowledge of the situation of countries and places, and may be used with any system of geography. It is applying to this science the same system of exercise as the working of examples in arithmetic, or the composition of sentences in the study of grammar, and is calculated to make the pupil a practical geographer, instead of confining him to the repetition of words and phrases learned by heart.

WALSH'S ARITHMETIC. The Mercantile Arithmetic; adapted to the Commerce of the United States in its domestic and foreign Relations; with an Appendix, containing practical Systems of Mensuration, Gauging, and a new and improved System of Book-Keeping. A new Edition, revised and enlarged. By MICHAEL WALSH, A. M.

This practical work may be used in schools as a sequel to Smith's and other popular treatises on Mental Arithmetic.

NOYES'S SYSTEM OF PENMANSHIP, containing Instructions for Writing, with two Sets of Copies in Large and Small Hand.

Grund's Books.

I. AN ELEMENTARY TREATISE ON GEOMETRY, simplified for Beginners, not versed in Algebra. Part I. containing Plane Geometry, with its Application to the Solution of Problems. By F. J. GRUND.

II. AN ELEMENTARY TREATISE ON GEOMETRY, simplified for Beginners, not versed in Algebra. Part II. containing Solid Geometry, with its application to the Solution of Problems. By F. J. GRUND.

At a meeting of the School Committee of the city of Boston, Mr. Grund's Geometry was recommended as a suitable book to be used in the Public Schools. The following are a few of the many recommendatory notices received by the |publisher of these works.

From George B. Emerson, Principal of a High School for Young Ladies,

Boston.

"Mr. Grund's Geometry unites, in an unusual degree, strictness of demonstration with clearness and simplicity. It is thus very well suited to form habits of exact reasoning in young beginners; and to give them favorable impressions of the science, I have adopted it as a text book in my own school." From Mr. W. B. Fowle, Principal of the Monitorial School, Boston. "I have examined every page of the 'First Lessons in Plane Geometry.' It has fulfilled my wishes, and I shall immediately introduce it into my school." From Walter R. Johnson, Principal of the Philadelphia High School. "The First Lessons in Plane Geometry appears to me eminently calculated to lay the foundation of a clear and comprehensive knowledge of the demonstrative part of that important science."

III. ELEMENTS OF NATURAL PHILOSOPHY, with Questions for Review, Illustrated by one hundred and eighty-eight Engravings; for the use of Schools. Third Edition, Stereotyped.

Extracts from Notices of this Work.

"It is compressed into a volume of moderate size, and is precisely adapted to the wants of our select and high schools, expunging the mysticism and error of several similar works, and incorporating the latest discoveries in every department. The induction system has been pursued so far as practicable; and a judicious arrangement and clear demonstrations are presented throughout."

"We introduced it into our school a short time since, and I have no hesitation in saying, that after a thorough trial, I consider it far preferable in every respect to any previous school book on this subject. Its superiority, as I think, consists in its greater comprehensiveness, its strict systematic arrangement, and particularly in supplying the deficiencies of former treatises."

IV. ELEMENTS OF CHEMISTRY; with Practical Exercises; for Schools. By FRANCIS J. GRUND.

This being a systematic and methodical work, will be particularly adapted for study and recitation in the school room.

It is adopted as a text book in Harvard college; and in many of the first high schools and academies in the different states.

V. POPULAR ASTRONOMY, on a new Plan; in which some of the leading Principles of the Science are illustrated by actual Comparisons, independent of the Use of Numbers.

In this work the various magnitudes, surfaces and distances of the heavenly bodies, are presented to the eye of the learner, by actual comparison on plates. The comparative diameters, surfaces and distances of the planets, are all drawn according to a fixed scale; the surfaces of the planets are reduced to square measure, and drawn in proportion to each other and to the sun; so that the youngest pupil, by a glance of the eye, is enabled to form a correct idea of their magnitudes. The zones, and the extent of the five great continents, are exemplified in the same way; also the comparative settlements on those continents.

"We think the plan of the work is ingenious and well executed; in some important respects, better than any thing we have before seen."-Vermont Chronicle.

"The diagrams in Popular Lessons in Astronomy' afford the clearest view of the comparative size and importance of the heavenly bodies we have met with."-Knickerbocker.

"Grund's Astronomy is highly deserving of notice. He has adopted an excellent plan of conveying to the mind the comparative size of the different planets, zones, &c."-From the Principal of Reading Academy

"I have examined' Grund's Popular Astronomy' with great satisfaction. I know of no other which conveys so correct an idea of the comparative magnitude of the heavenly bodies."-Principal of the Female Seminary, Exeter, N. H.

VI. EXERCISES IN ARITHMETIC, for Schools; with a Key for the use of the Teacher.

VII. EXERCISES IN ALGEBRA, for Schools; with a Key for the use of the Teacher.
