BOOKS

AND OTHER ARTICLES

OF INTEREST TO EDUCATORS GENERALLY.

The following pages differ from those preceding both in style and contents. Every publisher and manufacturer represented in these pages has been invited to describe his books or other goods in such manner as he deemed most suitable, and, as a result, the marked diversity in the collected lists imparts to each freshness and novelty and secures careful attention for all.

The attempt, made in several instances, to add to the notices of special books terse but comprehensive descriptions, enhances the value of such mention and would seem to be the next best thing to an inspection of the book itself. And. in the same manner, the enumeration of the full titles, the notes appended thereto, the system of arrangement, and the whole technical composition of the list, purposely discarding the usual prosaic regularity, will keep the reader's interest alive to the end, so that not even the smallest notice, however placed, will be overlooked.

Books which, classed in any other manner, might be called important or unimportant respectively, here stand on an equal footing claiming the same attention from the careful reader, and the special position occupied will in no wise be regarded as an indication of the relative worth or value of any one book. This is, in fine, a list which gives to inquirers an idea of the distinctive features and qualities of each book, thus aiding book-buyers in their selections.

Another and important feature of this list, to which special attention is invited, is the full Index of Subjects, at the end, the peculiarity and value of which as an aid, a suggestion, and a guide, the reader will not fail to appreciate.
