A Chart of History and Chronology for Modern History, both European and American. Embracing the 16th, 17th, 18th, and

19th Centuries, with Genealogical Tables of

England, France, and Germany. Il This Chart accomplishes for the study of History what the introduction of maps did for the study of Geography. It is literally a Map of Time, presenting the Years and Centuries as distinctly before the eye as a good map presents Counties and States. Each year and century has its own clearly marked place, and yet the arrangement is so simple and philosophical that a child can easily learn to read it.

The different Nationalities are represented by the different Colors, and the relative importance of events by different sizes and kinds of type ; and thus the eye and local association are brought to the aid of the memory. It will be found almost as difficult to forget dates learned by this method as to remember them when learned in the ordinary way. Size of Map, mounted on Muslin, 46 x 65 in. Price of Map and Hand-Book, $7.00.

HAND-BOOK OF HISTORY AND CHRONOLOGY, This Book is prepared by the same author, and fully explains the Map, giving clear and ample directions for its use. Pages, 192.

Price, $1.25. TESTIMONIALS. Together with the Map of Time, the most perfect thing of the kind in the world, the Hand-Book affords the best general view of Modern History and Chronology extant.-Edward Eggleston.

We like the plan of this book. It does not attempt the task in which all compilers fail, because it is an impossible one, of compressing the history of the world into one readable volume, but proposes to be nothing more than a skeleton outline, which is to acquire flesh and blood and life from the perusal of the passages referred to in the various standard histories, of which a list is given in the Introduction.-Mass. Teacher.

There are three features which render this manual superior for school purposes, to the histories commonly in use : ist. The selection of a limited portion of modern time connected immediately with the present age, and embracing the most important move. ments and achievements of the human race ; 2d. The comparison by centuries, of events of all the leading countries in Europe and in America ; 3d. The constant reference to anthorities by which the outline of dates can be filled in by the teacher or pupil at pleasure. - The Nation.

I have seen no contributions in aid of this most interesting and instructive department of study which seem so well adapted to the purpose as Mr. Gregory's Map and | Hand-Book. -Newton Batemait, Sup. Pub. Inst. Ill.

They seem admirably adapted for the purpose of making young people permanently familiar with the principal facts of history. It is a well recognized principal in the science of education that a truth which the mind holds by any two of its powers is more strongly held than if there were but one faculty employed about it. He, therefore, who spreads out the events of history before the eye, gives the mind an additional hold upon |theni. And when it is remembered that facts gained through the sight make, for the most part, the very strongest impression upon the mind, the advantage of this method will become more than ever apparent.--Rich. Edwards, Pres. Il. Normal University.

I have examined the “Hand-Book of History and Chronology,” and “Map of Time,” by Dr. Gregory, and am delighted with both. They would have saved much valuable time to me, had I been in possession of them many years ago. They should be in the hands of every student.- T A, Parker, Sup. Pub. Trist., Mo.

I am happy to learn that you have published Dr. Gregory's Historical Chart. I have been present several times when he has lectnred on the subject of history, at the same time showing the use of this chart in this study. I feel certain that the chart will furnish most valuable aid in the study of History.—0. Hosford, Sup. Pub. Inst. Mich. LIBERAL TERMS FOR INTRODUCTION.

Principal of the Girls' High and Normal School, Boston.

This edition of Goodrich's “ History of the United States” has been prepared from the latest and most trustworthy authorities. It has been attempted, by brevity of statement and an economical arrangement of matter, to bring the story of our history through the war of the rebellion, without making it so meagre as to be useless or swelling the book to an inconvenient size. To do this, it has been necessary to re-write nearly the whole work, which (exclusive of an Appendix of 28 pages), including maps, portraits and many other illustrations, useful chronological tables, and tables of analysis, is comprised in 320 pages 12mo.

The History is divided into six periods. A careful ANALYSIS prepares the way for the logical and systematic study of epch period.

The book may be used as three separate histories, or each may be made to assist the other.

1st. The Chronological Reviews alone may be committed to memory; and, from the ten pages of these, the learner will, we believe, get a more accurate and definite statement of the country's bistory than most students carry away with them from schools.

24. The larger print of the text, without the smaller, may be studied by itself, giving a history of the United States in about 150 pages.

3d. The smaller print may be studied with the other.

The whole forms a carefully prepared work, arranged so as to facilitate the labor of the teacher, and fix the facts stated in the mind of the pupil by various little aids to the memory. the importance of which the practical teacher can well understand.

The CHRONOLOGICAL REVIEWS are very different from chronological tables in other school historier, Events are not merely enumerated, but stated 'in complete sentences, and, when desirable, in connected form.

Accompanying the Chronological Review of each period is a list of MEMORABLE EVENTS in contemporary history, and a list of names of the most EMINENT PERSONS who closed their career during the period.

By means of FOOT-NOTES AND CROSS-REFERENCES, the text is still further illustrated, and its facts more securely stored in the memory. Each important topic can be read by itself, and the whole career of persons celebrated in the history of our country can readily be traced as they are mentioned in this work.

NCIPAL SUBJECT OF EACH PARAGRAPH is seen at a glance by means of catch-word. which are printed in a full-face type or in Italics. Many teachers will use these, instead of the questions at the foot of the page, in conducting the recitation. They will also be of great assistance to the pupil in preparing the lesson, and to the general reader in using the book reference.

Dates are given in a full-face type in the margin, eo as still more to attract the attention to important events.

The book is illustrated by SUPERIOR MAPS. The design has been to show by them the location of every place in the United States mentioned in the history. Much care has also been taken to give acceptable PORTRAITs of the most eminent historical personages.

The progress of ideas and the development of parties are more clearly shown than in other school histories.

In the history of the wars, the author has endeavored to state clearly and distinctly the move. ments of armies in each department, and the relative value of the different military and naval. operations.
