OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.

    "_The Readers bear evidence on every page of the author's great
    experience of School Work, and of his thorough grasp of the
    conditions under which the elements of geography are taught in the
    standards._"--SCHOOL BOARD CHRONICLE.

    "_In an examination of these volumes the feature that first strikes
    the reader is, probably, the amount of information stored within
    them, and the more one penetrates into them the more this becomes
    apparent. The author has spared no labour to make his books the
    means of conveying geographical knowledge. The information is full,
    sound, and exhibits considerable research. Illustrations are
    introduced here and there, and the maps are very well
    done--distinct, not crowded with names, but just sufficient to
    strike the attention of the pupil._"--SCHOOLMASTER.

Colonies, and are adapted to the new Educational Code.

II. It gradually advances from the Simple Stroke to a superior
Small-hand.
