GUY'S LEARNER'S POETIC TASK-BOOK; being a choice Se. lection of Pieces, chiefly from the Modern British Poets, suitable to be committed to memory by youth of both sexes in Schools and Families. Sold at the moderate price of 1s. bound and lettered. By JOSEPH Guy, Jun. of Magdalen Hall, Oxford.

“ In this little book the pieces selected are quite appropriate to the object of the work. They are taken chiefly from English and American poets; but we recognise some names which do not rest upon poetry for their fame. Verses by Lord Brougham, Lord Morpeth, Mr. Gilfillan, Miss Landon, and others, are intermixed. A more simple, and yet more desirable little book for little learners, we have not seen, for it is a model of simplicity, a condensation of the sweetest thoughts and purest utterances of our great poetic geniuses."-Critic, Oct. 1, 1849.

“ This is a cheap, and promises to be a useful little manual in the hands of young persons, to wliom it may be desired to allot the task of committing to memory scraps of poetry, containing a good moral or a pious thought. Besides selections from our great poets, it contains several well-chosen pieces from such writers as Mrs. Hemans, Miss Landon, Lord Brougham, Lord Morpeth, and several others of high literary repute "—Weekly Chronicle, Sept. 16, 1849.

JOSEPH GUY'S GEOGRAPHY FOR YOUNG CHILDREN, written expressly for their use, illustrated with Six Maps on Steel and Two Woodl Engravings, interspersed with Tutors' Questions and Exercises, and at the end of the book Twenty-three Lessons of Promiscuous Questions on the several Maps of the World.

** This little work has had the sanction and commendation of several eminent teachers, and is already in extensive use in Ladies' and Gentlemen's schools. Many thousand copies were sold on its first publication, and it is believed that the Queen patronises it in the Royal Nursery.

“A very appropriate publication for the instruction of young children in the important study of geography. The style in which it is written is lucid and wel adapted to the capacity of children of from six to ten years of age. It is illustrated by six maps.”—Morning Herald, May 7, 1849.

“Mr. Guy has the faculty of making himself thoroughly understood; and this is a great object gained in teaching, as we find so many School Books entirely valueless from the fact of their not being intelligible to an ordinary youthful understanding Mr. Guy has also a pleasing style of composition; and appears to have studied the art of renderilig instruction as agreeable as possible. This is another characteristic of his productions, and is certainly a very material point in books devoted to education, and an excellence unattained by many, even of the most popular of our schooi literature."-Weekly Chronicle, Jan. 5, 1850.

This is really a first book for Young Children. It is arranged upon a novel plan, and suited to the capacities of the dullest learners. It combines in its useful pages A PRIMER, SPELLING-BOOK, and READER, adapted to modern improvements and suited to the growing intelligence of the age.

“ This small volume has much to recommend it to our special approval. The principles on which it is constructed are, in our judgment, the best and the most undeniable. It not only begins in the lowest steps of the ladder of education, but it dwells upon them, and does not hurry the learner, with crude emulation, to hasten upwards, till, by repetition, he has made himself sure and sure-footed on the earliest rounds.”-Literary Gazette.
