SERIES OF SCHOOL GEOGRAPHIES.
I. PRIMARY- GEOGRAPHY. II. INTERMEDIATE GE
OGRAPHY. III. HIGH SCHOOL GEOGRAPHY
1 AND ATLAI
THE SERIES IS AT ONCE PRACTICAL. SYSTEM
atic.and complete philosophical in its arrangement, and
progressive in 'its development of tbe subject. Beginning
with elementary principles, the pupil is led bv gradual, nat
ural and pleasant steps, to a thorough and intelligent mastery
of the science. While care has been taken to bare thetbre
works progressive and so adapted to each other as to form
a perfect series, each is complete in itself and well suited to
tbe grade of scholarship for which it is designed. '
Tne rnmary ueograpoy (maii to Vff pp. m maps. Beau
tifully Illustrated. Price 50 cents.) contains only those
branches ot (Jengraphical Science that admit of being fully
broueht within the cohinrehension of-youthful bannnera.
"Commencing at the foundation of the science, its object is
to maae iue pupn tuorougoiy aoquainieu wiib loe local and
the relative position of the grand divisions of the earth, the
leading political divisions, and tbe principal capital citiesw
Its arrangement is thoroughly systematic and progressive .
It is illustrated with upwards of seventy eeawtimil and ap
propriate designs,amone which wilt be found renresentationa
of an island, a peninsula, an isthmus, a cane, a mountain
chain, a sea, a bay, a strait,- lake, a river, etc., and also
views of the most important cities in the World.
The map questions are numerous: and thorough, and so
arranged that the pupil necessarily becomes acquainted
with every locality described.. At desirable intervaffl; there
is a systematic arrangement of promiscuous .questions in re
view lessons. . ..
A Pronouncing Vocabulary, containing the names' of all
tbe natural and political divisions used throughout the
work, is appended. . ' ,
The Intermediate. Geography, large 4to, revised edition,
with new aud additional maps, and numerous illnstratioris,
is, in accordance with the author's plan, designed for pupil
who have completed a primary course on the snhjaet.
It possesses all the advantages of arrangearent and" sys
tem peculiar to the first book of the aeries. It clearly ex
plains the terms used in Physical, Political, and Mathemat
ical Geography, and contains a Judiciously selected and
carefuily ivsteraatised amount of Descriptive Geography.
The work also embraces a pronouncing Vocabulary of the
Geographical names contained in it, giving tbe population
of places the length ot rivers, etc -
The High-School Geography ia an unusually attractive
12mo. (large siae) volume of 405 pp., illustrated with over
one hundred exquisitely executed engravings, made express
ly tor this work. .: .;
It is divided into three parts : .
Part. I. embraces Descriptive Geography and Exerciser
on the maps iar. the accompanying Atlas.
.. Part II. treats of Mathematical Geography, v
Part III contain an outline of Physical Geography. Tot
which is added an Appendix, containing Rulea for descri
bing the Natural Divisions of land and water, including
" Definitions of Terms, Examples, etc.," together with "Di
rection for Memorizing the contents of a"Map.m Then
follow Directions for the Use of Globes with irameroouj
problems on them; and the volume closes ritfcs fSleaaatV
of Geographical terms. , .
The work is arranged on tbe true inductive system, pro
ceeding on the natural and gradual advances from deduc
tion to deduction and from step to step, until the whole
ground is'eovered. ..
It contains as many facts a can be advantegsnnsly re
' membered, while it eschews an embarrassing multiplicity
that would be forgotten as soon as learned.
-. It embraces a system of Reviews in which the questions,
preseuled in new forms, require the pupil to look at the sub
ject in different I'ghts, to think for himself, and to corxpare
and digest the various facts he has leareeoV
It embodies tl e results of all new discoveries in Physi
cal Geograplyetc. the latest explorations of travellers4Hid
navigators, and takes Its statistics from the most recent and
reliable official records.
The Atlas, which is larger than the usual School Atlases,
is unquestionably one of the most beautiful' audi attractive
volumes ever published.
It contains t wo-sets of maps ; one for references the other
for study. Both have been prepared with the utmost case;,
and based on the latest and most accurate authorities. The
former will be found fuller and more reliable than former
Atlases, and will answer every practical purpose of refer
ence for schools or families.JJThe latter are intended spe
cially for the pupil, and contain a selection of the' most im
portant places. No names appear on them that are not "
mentioned hi the Geography; and all that are given fore
.the subject of map questions jand are thus thoroughly com
mitted to memory. There is no groping here amid a mul
tiplicity of distracting details. . Every thing is clear. The
teacher is relieved from annoying intarrnptinos and impor
tunities forjAid ; and the learner loses .neither time nor pa
- tience. .
