EDUCATIONAL TEXT-BOOKS. GUYOT'S GEOGRAPHIES.

- "Incomparably superior to anything published.” - Prof. AGASSIZ.

“One of the ablest Physical Geographers of the world." - Prof. J. A. DANA. AT“Greatly superior lo any work of the kind published.” – Prof. JOSEPH HENRY.

The astonishing success which Prof. Guyot's Geographical Text-Books have already achieved-over one hundred thousand copies having been sold in the year that has elapsed since their first introduction is the most empbatic endorsement possible of their pre-eminent merits. Hundreds of our leading instructors, including some of the most distinguished scientific minds of this country, and, indeed, of the world, have emphatically endorsed them as containing the only true and the only philosophical method of developing Geography as a science. The Text-Books are rapidly finding their way into schoolrooms throughout the country, and from all those into which they have been introduced, we have emphatic and unanimous testimony that they have made the study of Geography a pleasure, instead of tedious drudgery, and that scholars of all ages pursue it with a zest and enthusiasm to which they were strangers under the old system of learning by rote. Prof. Guyot's series now includes the following Text-Books: I. Primary; or, Introduction to the Study of Geography,

One quarto volume, with over 100 elegant illustrations. II. The Intermediate Geography, In one quarto volume, elegantly illustrated, containing forty-five Maps, of which twelve are fullpaged Maps, engraved in the highest style of the art, colored politically and physically, embra. cing colored diagrams for the construction of the Maps of each Continent, and also colored diagrams, with full instructions for drawing the Maps of the separate States of the United States,

III. Common School Geography.

In one royal quarto volume, with numerous illustrations, containing twenty-three Maps, of which five are double-page Maps, engraved in the highest style of the art, colored politically and physically, embracing also diagrams for the construction of Maps of each Continent.

TO TEACHERS. • Teachers desiring to examine these Text-Books can procure them at the following prices: THE PRIMARY, 75 cents; THE COMMON SCHOOL GEOGRAPHY, $1.50; THE INTERMEDIATE GEOGRAPHY, $1; or the three books will be sent together to teachers for $3
