Gratified to feel that he is thus doing a welcome service to many persons, and cheered and encouraged on all sides, the undersigned will continue to work in this direction, and further, with the aid of an extensive collection of reference books, catalogues, and other material, endeavor to give full information in regard to educational matters at home and abroad.

Cordial thanks are expressed to all who have aided in the preparation and correction of this volume, and the request is added that whosoever can contribute to the correctness and reliability of later issues, will do so at the earliest opportunity.
