GOODRICH'S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES.

RE-WRITTEN, AND BROUGHT DOWN TO THE PRESENT TIME (1867).

BY WM. H. SEAVEY, A. M.,

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 mengre 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 each 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 tep pages of these, the learner will, we believe, get a more accurate and definite statement of the country's history than most students carry away with them from schools.

20. 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 histories. 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.

The PRINCIPAL SUBJECT OF EACH PARAGRAPH is seen at a glance by means of catch-words, 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 for reference.

DATES are given in a full-face type in the margin, so as still more to attract the attention to mportant 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 movements of armies in each department, and the relative value of the different military and naval operations,

47 and 49 Greene Street, Nerr York.

N O series of School Books ever offered to the public have attained so wide a circulation or

received the approval and indorsement of so many competent and reliable educators, in all parts of the United States, as this. Among the most prominent of their publications are the following, viz.:

THE UNION READERS AND SPELLERS. The Union Readers are not a revision of any former series of Sanders' Readers. They are entirely new in matter and illustrations, and have been prepared with great care.

THE UNION READERS and SPELLERS gained in circulation, for the year ending January 1866, over the preceding year, 75,310 vols., and for the year ending January 1867, an additional gain of 115,296 vols.; and January 1868 will show a still larger increase.

The above statement is conclusive evidence of the estimation in which this series is held b the educational men of this country.

Robinson's Complete Mathematical Series. and practical of the kind par lished in this courmaline booki

With the improvements and additions recently made, this series is the most complete, scientific and practical of the kind published in this country. The books are graded to the wants of Pri. mary, Intermediate, Grammar, Normal and High Schools, Academies and Colleges. The Metric System of Weights and Measures, full, practical and greatly simplified, has
