WEBSTER'S

NATIONAL PICTORIAL DICTIONARY,

In One Volume of 1040 Octavo Pagos.

This volume has been prepared upon the general principles of the large Dictionary, and with a full use of the materials of that work. It contains over SIX HUNDRED PICTORIAL ILLUSTRATIONS, under their appropriate words in the body of the work, with some thirty pages of grouped or classified cuts at the end ; – the usual Tables, Classical, Scriptural, Geographical, Biographical, etc.; in addition to which, and as distinctive and valuable features of this Dictionary.

I. A GLOSSARY OF SCOTTISH WORDS AND PHRASES, very carefully prepared, and having received the revisory reading of PROF. WM. RUSSELL, the distinguished elocutionist, himself long a resident of Scotland, and peculiarly qualified to understand and express the true pronunciation of Scottish words. This Glossary will be especially valuable and acceptable to the many readers and admirers of Burns, Hogg, Sir Walter Scott, and other eminent Scottish writers.

II. A VOCABULARY OF PERFECT AND ALLOWABLE RHYMES, based upon the corresponding words in Walker's Rhyming Dictionary, but more copious and far more correct.

This work is not designed to supersede, or take the place of, Webster's New UNABRIDGED DICTIONARY, in 1840 pages Royal Quarto, containing 3000 Illustrations, - an indispensable work to every one who can afford it, - but to meet the wishes of many who, for convenience or economy, desire a more condensed and less expensive work. To such, whether students, families, or business men, it is believed this volume will be found acceptable. Retail, Six Dollars, in full sheep, marbled edge.

An excellent manual for teachers, normal, and other advanced pupils. Sold by all booksellers.

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.

[ocr errors]

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 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 ten 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.

2d. 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 pot 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 aseistance 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.

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

I 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 1888, 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 by the educational men of this country.

Robinson's Complete Mathematical Series.

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 Primary, Intermediate, Grammar, Normal and High Schools, Academies and Colleges. The Metric System of Weights and Measures, full, practical and greatly simplified, has

been added to the Written Arithmetics. Robinson's Series show a gain in circulation for the year ending Jan. 1, 1867, of 55,720 vols.

They have a large and rapidly increasing sale.

Kerl's New Series of Grammars.

For simplicity and clearness, for comprehensive research and minute analysis, for freshness, scientific method and practical utility, this Series of English Grammars is unrivalled by any other yet published.

and used in all the Principal Cities of the United States.
