ESTABLISHED HIGHEST EXCELLENCE.
Of the many school books constantly coming from the press, not one in a score possesses sufficient merit, or adaptedness to the practical wants of teachers, to secure for it a permanent place among school text-books. We select from the list of our own publications, for commendation to educators, the following books, all of which have very successfully stood the actual test in the school room, and most of which have become the standard text-books in their departments, being more extensively used than any others. We recommend these books to teachers, therefore, not merely on our own judgment, but because they have been thoroughly tried and proved to be the best.
