Attention is respectfully invited to the following eminently useful series of French classbooks, which have enjoyed an unprecedented popularity, and are in use at most of the Colleges and Schools throughout the United Kingdom and the Colonies.

De Fivas' New Grammar of French Grammars; com

prising the substance of all the most approved French Grammars extant, but more especially of the standard work La Grammaire des Grammaires,' sanctioned by the French Academy and the University of Paris. With numerous Exercises and Examples illustrative of every Rule. By Dr. V. DE FIVAS, M.A., F.E.I.S., Member of the Grammatical Society of Paris, &c. &c. Thirty-seventh Edition, price 3s. 6d. strongly bound.

At once the simplest and most complete Grammar of the French language. To the pupil the effect is almost as if he looked into a Map, so well-defined is the course of study as explained by M. de Fivas.'-LITERARY GAZETTE.

'Of the many French grammars which have come under our notice, this is, in many respects, incomparably the best. Certainly it has no equal for conciseness and precision of style. Another point, and one well worth the consideration of parents, is that the volume is bound in the stoutest of calf, and seems destined to put the destructive powers of the rising generation to a severe test.'-CIVILIAN.

** A KEY to the above, price 3s. 6d. bound.

or, the Student and Tourist's French Vade-Mecum; containing a Comprehensive Vocabulary, and Phrases and Dialogues on every useful or interesting topic; together with Models of Letters, Notes, and Cards; and Comparative Tables of the British and French Coins, Weights, and Measures: the whole exhibiting, in a distinct manner, the true Pronunciation of the French Language.
