TESTIMONIALS.

Boston, Jan. 31, 1867. We have used Peirce's Patent Slates for some time in our schools, and, from our experience, and their present improved character, we believe they are superior to any other slates we have ever seen and sball favor their more extended use.

best books upon the subject I have seen," – Hon. 8. 8. RANDALL, Superintendent of Schools, New York City.

BULKLEY, Superintendent of Schools, Brooklyn, N. Y. "I give them my unqualified recommondation." --J. W.

1. They embrace every important event in the history of the United States, to the exclusion of those not important. . 2. Every fact is stated in clear and concise language, so that the pupil may be able to comprehend it, and, at the same time, see its connection with the evente preceding.

3. Two entirely different sets of questions run through the books, one of a review or topical character, by which thoroughness on the part of the learner is secured, and the habit of memo- 5 rizing by rote the language of the text discouraged.

4. The books are copiously illustrated with maps, the maps being placed just where ti : needed; and the exact location of every place mentioned in the books is given.

5. The system of map questions in the books com pels the student to learn the locatior the places, without which the study of history can never be a success.

6. The correct pronunciation of the more difficult proper names is given just where they ! occur. ē 7. Dates are inserted with great frequency, and the books are not only provided with a gen- eral chronological table, but with special ones of battles, settlements and admissions of States, o successions of the Presidents, etc.

8. The publishers claim that the instructor, aided by these books, can teach more history, and do it better and in less time, than can be done by the aid of any other works on this subject.

Teachers, do you desire a book that will so enable you to fit your pupils in a knowledge of the history of our country, that when they are examined for promotion or with any other object, the g result will be creditable both to you and them? Anderson's Histories, prepared by a practical w teacher, are, then, just what you need. In the Grammar Schools of the City of New York, 8 where they are used, the annual examinations conducted by the Superintendent, though very thorough, uniformly prove successful in the department of history, to the candidates examined. > So also pupils from the Grammar Schools, presenting themselves for admission into the College of the City of New York, rarely fail in history.

These Books are used in New York City, Brooklyn, New Haven, Conn., San Francisco, Cal., Springfield, Mass., Taunton, Mass., Louisville, Ky., and numerous other cities and towns in va. Evo

rious parts of the country. i Oopies sent to Teachers for examination on receipt of half the price
