THE ENGLISH SPELLING BOOK, accompanied by a progressive Series of easy and familiar Lessons, adapted to the Capacities of Children, and embellished with a Variety of Engravings; the whole intended to furnish, for the use of Schools, an improved introductory Book to the first Elements of the English Language. By WILLIAM MAVOR, LL. D. Rector of Stonesfield, Vicar of Hurley, Chaplain to the Earl of Moira, &c. The Hundred and Fortieth Edition. Price 1s. 6d.

The unprecedented sale of Six Hundred Thousand Copies of Dr. Mavor's New SPELLING BOOK, in less than five years, and its adoption by intelligent Teachers, in all the respectable Schools in the three Kingdoms, render it almost unnecessary for the Publishers to make any remark on its claim to universal preference.

As an introductory book to a vernacular tongue, for the use of Children, Dr. Mavor's Spelling Book is entirely, composed of plain and easy examples, leading the infantile pupil, step by step, by the most simple and obvious gradations, from the Letters of the Alphabet, through vllables and words of two and three letters, on to a series of amusing, familiar, and instructive lessons, on the admired plan "The Work is printed on good paper, with an unusually large and clear type. The Examples and Lessons are displayed in a distinct '

manner, and the book throughout is rendered attractive to the early age for which it is intended. In a word, the convenience of the Teacher, and the ease and pleasure of the Pupil, have been sedulously, and, it is believed, successfully consulted.

THE CLASS-BOOK ; or THREE HUNDRED and SIXTY. FIVE READING LESSONS for SCHOOLS of either SEX: combining the Elements of all Knowledge, with a greater Number of Reading Exercises, from the best Authors, than are to be found in any other Work of the same Description ; every Lesson having a clearly defined Object, and teaching some Principle of Science or Morality, or some important Truth. By the Rev. DAVID BLAIR. A new Edition, printed on good Paper, and in a clear Type. Price 58. 6d. bound.

The Author has been stimulated to complete these Exercises in reading, by the observation, that, although there at present exist several excellent books for teaching, reading, and elocution, the object of them does not extend beyond the mere combination of words; and they consist almost entirely of passages selected with reference to beauty of composition only.' In the present Work, elegance has been united with utility; sound and sense have been studiously combined; and eloquence has always been adapted to the purposes of instruction. In short, every one of the lessons in this Class Book, 'is calculated to make the young reader both wiser aud better. His own experience as a teacher suggested to the Author the division of his book into three hundred and sixty-five lessons, or one for every day in the year; in each of which the subject matter is generally fiaished within the suitable length of & lesson. This division, it is obvious, will be attended with an equal degree of convenience to the tutor and pupil in the actual business of a public seminary.

“ Mr. Murray's English Grammar, English Exercises, and Abridgment of the Grammar, claim our attention, on accouut of their being composed, on the principle we have so frequently recommended, of combining religious and moral improvement with the elements of scientific knowledge. The laté learned Dr. Blair gave his opinion of it in the following terms :~Mr. Lindley Murray's Grammar, with the Exercises and the Key in a separate volume, I esteem as a most excellent performance. I think it superior to any work of that nature we have yet had; and am persuaded that it is, by much, the best Grammar of the English language extant. On Syntax, in particular, he has shown a wonderful degree of acuteness and precision, in ascertaining the propriety of language, and in rectifying the numberless errors which writers are apt to commit. Most useful these books must certaiuly be to all who are applying themselves to the arts of composition'.” Guard. of Educ.
