DESIGNED FOR HIGH SCHOOLS, ACADEMIES, AND COLLEGES. This is a new edition of the ELEMENTS OF GEOMETRY, with the addition of a Complete System of Plane and Spherical TRIGONOMETRY, analytically treated, and

practically applied. No work of the kind has been in the same time more extensively introduced, or more highly commended by DISTINGUISHED EDUCATORS. It is now used in High Schools, Academies, and Normal Schools in all parts of the country, including in NEW ENGLAND alone UPWARDS OF SIXTY ACADEMIES.

A. P. Stone, A. M., President of the National Institute of Instruction, writes :

It stands the test of the schoolroom well — the only sure guarantee of the merits of any schock book.” WILLIAM C. Esły, A. M., Professor of Mathematics in Salem Public High School :

“ The only text-book of the kind which presents, in a form suitable for High Schools, the improved methods of the present day.” D. B. HAGAR, A, M., late President of Massachusetts State Teachers' Association :

“I have, with the unanimous concurrence of our school committee, adopted it for use in the Eliot High School. I cannot pay the work a higher compliment." Prof. G. P. Hawes, A. M., of Maryland Agricultural College:

* There is a wholeness and a brevity about it which is truly refreshing in this book-making age. I particularly admire its method of teaching trigonometric functions- an improvement upon the old system, and that too on an essential point, as it changes the basis of investigation wholly for the better. Prof. F. A. ALLEN, A. M., Principal of Chester County Normal School, Pa. :

“After giving it a fair trial - at least, a satisfactory one to me, I have concluded to introduce it into our Normal School. My opinion of the work is here given ir a tangible form." Prof. J. V. N. STANDISH, A. M., of Lombard College, Ill.:

“ Prof. Greenleaf seems to have followed the golden mean' between Euclid and Legendre; it is neither too wordy nor too concise. I regard the work as most excellent." Prof. H. A. Pratt, A. M., Principal of Hartford City High School, Conn. :

" It is undoubtedly the best work on the subject now offered to our schools." STILES French, A. M., Principal of a Classical and Scientific School, New Haven :

“ The whole book is remarkably well adapted to the purposes of instruction." Prof. E. J. Young, Principal of East Allentown Grammar School, Pa.:

“It is a work of rare merit, and I sincerely and conscientiously recommend it as undoubtedly the

Julii Caesaris Commentarii de Bello Gallico. Libri IV; C. Sallustii Crispi Catilina; M. Tullii Ciceronis Orationes – 1. In L. Catilinam Oratio Prima Habíta in Senatu - 2.' In L.

Licinio Archia Poeta Oratio ad Judices ; Ciceronis Epistolae XXXV.; List of Abbreviations; Notes; Latin-English Vocabulary; Geographical and Historical Index.

The design of this book is explained in its title, and the manner in which the author has carried out the plan so happily conceived, is shown by the following opinion, from one well qualified to judge.

Rev. Dr. CHAMPLIN, formerly Professor of Latin and Greek in, and now President of, Waterville College, says:

** Permit me to say that, in my opinion, the Preparatory Latin Prose Book, by Mr. J. II. Hasson of Portland, is a work of great merit and much need in preparing for College. The long experience in teaching and excellent scholarship of Mr. Hanson have enabled him to adapt it most admirably to the wants of beginners. We have here in a single volume all the Latin prose with grammatical and philological notes and vocabulary required in preparing for college. The book cannot fail of being favorably received by classical teachers."

The publishers are constantly receiving similar endorsements of the work from those who have thoroughly examined it. A pamphlet, containing extracts from the book, with recommendations, will be sent if desired. RICHARDS'S LATIN LESSONS. Latin Lessons and Tables, combining the Analytic and Synthetic Methods. Consisting of Selections from Cæsar's Commentaries, with a complete System of Memorising the Grammar, Notes, Exercises in Translating from English into Latin, Tables, and a Vocabulary. By Cyrus S. Richards, A. M., Principal of Kimball Union Academy, Meriden, N. H. 12mo. 128 pp. Price, 63 cents.

This little book has received the most unqualified commendation from many of the ablest Latin scholars and teachers in the county. HENSHAW'S ANALYSIS. An Analysis of the Greek Verb. By MARSIALL Henshaw, A.

M., Professor in Rutgers College, New Brunswick, N. J. Price, 63 cents.

Professor JOHN J. OWEN, of the New York Free cademy, whose abili to judge of the work no one will question, says: “I have given it a careful examination, and am free to express my opinion that a more valuable and timely aid to the free and perfect command of the various parts of the Greek Verb has not been furnished to the students of our country. The faithful and intelligent use of your Tables and Paradigms will be of the highest advantage to beginners in Greek. I shall not only recommend it to my own immediate classes, but to professors and students generally, as I may have opportunity. You deserve the thanks of the friends of classical learning for this valuable contribution to the study of the noblest of human languages."!

It is to this series, more than to anything else, that our schools are indebted for the impulse which has been given to this branch of education, and a marked improvement has always been visible wherever it has been introduced.

Its authors are devoted to their profession, and their combined experience is brought to bear upon the system, improving upon it from time to time as it is found capable of improvement.
