THE NATIONAL SERIES OF STANDARD SCHOOL-BOOKS
£ COMPRISES STANDARD WORKS
In every department of instruction and of every grade. The teacher in want of a book for any pai ticular purpose or class, will always find the bust of its kind in our catalogue. No other series even claims to be as complete as this. None is so extensive or so judiciously selected. Among so many volumes a high standard of merit is maintained, as it is our aim never to permit our imprint upon a poor or unworthy book. It is also our plan to make books not for a class or sect, but for the whole country -unobjectionable to parties and creeds, while inculcating the great principles of political freedom and Christianity, upon which all right-minded persons are agreed. Hence, and from their almost universal circulation, the name—" National Series." Among the principal volumes are Parker & Watson's Headers—In two distinct series, each complete In itself. The Jff^,-*ional Headers, of full grade. In large, elegant volumes, adequate for every want of -^e most thorough and highly graded schools. The Independent Readers, in smaller volumes, for Common Schools. Low In price, but In no other respect Inferior to the companion series. Spellers complete to accompany either series. . \
Davie s' Mathematics—Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Surveying, \ Ac.—Complete in every branch—The national standard—world-renowned. Millions have been I called for, and the sale Increases year by year. New volumes are constantly published to take J the places of those that are in the least behind the times.

A Complete Course In German.
By JAMES H. WOEMAN, AM.
ELEMENTARY GERMAN GRAMMAR,
COMPLETE GERMAN GRAMMAR, GERMAN READER, GERMAN COPY-BOOKS, GERMAN ECHO.
HISTORY OF GERMAN LITERATURE,
GERMAN AND ENGLISH LEXICON.
I. TUB GERMAN Git A MM I ns of Worman are widely preferred on account of their clear, explicit method (on the conversation plan), introducing a system of analogy and comparison with the learners» own language and others commonly studied.
The arts of speaking, of understanding the spoken language, and of correct pronunciation, are treated with great success.
The new classifications of nouns and of irregular verbs are of great value to the pupil. The use of heavy type to indicate etymological changes, is new. The Vocabulary Is eynonymieal—aXsii a new feature.
II. WORMAN'S GERMAN READER contains progressive selections from a wide range of the very best German authors, including three complete plays, which are usually purchased in separate form for advanced students who have completed the ordinary Reader.
It has Biographies of eminent authors. Notes after the text, References to all German Grammars in common use, and an adequate Vocabulary; also, Exercises for translation into the German.
III. WORMAN'S GERM AX ECHO (Deuttches Echo) is entirely a new thing in this country. It presents familiar colloquial exercises without translation, and will teach fluent conversation in a few months of dlligeut study.
No other method will ever make the student at home in a foreign language. By thiB he thinks in, as well as speaks it. For the time being he is a German through and through. The laborious process of translating his thoughts no longer impedes free unembarrassed utterance.
