phical Discovery, &c., is published only with the Complete Manual.
This Manual is confidently put before the Scholastic public as in many respects unique. While carefully fitted for the work of the Standards of the Code, it by no means contains a bare minimum of information; but, by a judicious fulness or compression, according to importance of matter, and the use in general of complete sentences, it is well suited for Pupil Teachers, who will find in it valuable hints on teaching. By very clear, and, in some cases, novel arrangement, by the constant use of association and comparison, by differences of type, and the avoidance as far as possible of mere lists of names, tho mcmory has been assisted and the mind directed to infer and judge. Care has been taken to have a well illustrated Introduction, simple in style, to furnish lucid accounts of physical features, and maps not overcrowded that may serve as models for pupils, to awaken curiosity by a comprehensive History of Discovery, and to embody the latest discoveries and changes.
