By Thomas Keightley, Esq., author of "A History of England," "Greece," "Rome,” "Outlines of History, etc. etc.. 12mo. bound and lettered, 58. This book has been compiled in consequence of numerous complaints of the ordinary School Histories, addressed to the author by several persons of both sexes engaged in the task of education. They state that the abridgments are, almost without exception, so dry and unin. teresting, as to be utterly distasteful to children ; that they contain matter far beyond their comprehension, and are in some cases too long to be used with advantage. In the present Elementary History it is the object of the author to avoid all these faults. The work is brought within the inost moderate compass, and nothing is introduced into it that is not likely to prove both intelligible and interesting to children under the age of ten or eleven years, for whose use it is designed.
