THIS BOOK has been compiled with the object of providing a selection of Poems adapted to the attainments of the children and younger pupil teachers in Elementary Schools.

COPIOUS Notes accompany each poein, explaining almost every point of difficulty that occurs. These notes are placed in the margin; and, consequently, enable the pupil to obtain the explanation required more readily than if they were printed at the foot of the page, or at the end of the poem.

SHORT BIOGRAPHICAL NOTICES of all the authors quoted are prefixed to the several poems.

For permission to use copyright pieces, the Compiler has to thank the liberality of Robert Browning, Esq., Matthew Arnold, Esq., Messrs. Longman & Co., and Messrs. Macmillan & Co.
