E. S. Ritchie has just published a Catalogue of Philosophical Instruments, which have been expressly devised and constructed with the object of offering to the COMMON SCHOOLS of the country a class of apparatus, at moderate cost, for the elucidation of the elementary principles of Natural Philosophy. It has been his aim, in the compilation, that each article shall illustrate a principle, in the simplest form by which it can be clearly and adequately shown; to adopt the siz best uniting efficiency and economy; to simplify the construction, and to avoid unnecessary cost of material or of ornament, -- that well made, valuable, and durable apparatus may yet be of moderate price.
Sets are made up at the respective prices of twenty, thirty, fifty, ninety, one hundred and fifty, and two hundred dollars.
The Catalogue (illustrated with 120 Engravings) containing full descriptions of the instruments, practical directions for operating with each, and clear explanations of the principles illustrated, will be sent gratis on application.
