(From Boston Home Journal.) It would be difficult to name a modern book upon the subject of Education which is more charming, useful, and original. It does not deal with prosy details, but takes a broad view of the subject, and gathers all into the thought which is expressed by the title="Let Him First be a Man!"

Incidentally, the author treats of WHAT A MAN Is, his physical system, his mental possibilities, and the modes of realizing them. The treatment, however, is never dogmatic, but suggestive and stimulating. He treats also of great instructors and their ideas and methods: of Confucius, Plato, Aristotle, Quintillian, Goethe, and Arnold. He is familiar with the best, and quotes from their works and experience.

For the most delightful recreative reading the author's chapter of “Unclassified Trifles" is of unsurpassed interest. What man of middle life will not richly appreciate his faithful portraiture of “The Old-Fashioned Flocutionist"?

From Boston Ideas.) The “Paragon of Animals" is one of the most enjoyable essays on man that we have ever read. It is most comprehensive. The writing of the whole volume is that of a man whose life and thoughts are preeminently worthy of delineation for their broad philosophy and their high comprehensiveness of understanding. The essay on "The Utility of the Ideal" is particularly beautiful, and abounds in inspirational power. The closing essay is the memorial address on William Downs Henkle, read at the thirty-third annual meeting of the Ohio Teachers' Association, at Niagara Falls, N. Y., July 7, 1882. The subject is handled tenderly. lovingly, even as all the essays are, though seemingly increasingly so toward the end of their list. The volume altogether is an admirably artistic piece of literature and equally interesting as valuable.

BEGINNING OF LITERARY CULTURE IN THE OHIO VALLEY. 519 pages. Price, $3.00. Only a few copies.

(From the Ohio State Journal.) It is impossible to peruse any half dozen pages of the noble volume without intense interest. The author has gathered together a thousand facts concerning early literary effort and achievement in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, most of which will be absolutely new even to the best informed readers, and all of which is of the most unquestionable value. The period covered is from the earliest settlements to the outbreak of the civil war. No one could have written such a book as well as Mr. Venable, and of his many literary performances it is the best and noblest. The style of composition is, of course, of a high order, and fascinating to a degree.

(From A. P. Russell, author of "Literary Notes," " A Club of One," etc.)

A veritable feast. Such an amazing amount of information and so attractively presented. Accurate, perspicuous, elegant. The months and months of labor it has cost, and how perfect the achievement. I know of no other man who could have accomplished the work in such a masterly manner. The multitudes of names it mentions will interest thousands of readers. The intelligent and copious index is a strikingly valuable feature of the book.

MELODIES OF THE HEART AND OTHER POEMS. Price, $1.25.
THE LAST FLIGHT. Twenty-two new pieces, among which are “Let's

Shake,” “Saga of the Oak,” etc. 35 cents.

Our Standard English Classics Series is by far the best edited and most attractive Series in the market. Before reading the College Requirements, write us for our prices.

New Books in Science. Wentworth and Hill's Textbook of Physics, Gage's Revised Elements of Physics (just out), Blaisdell's Practical Physiology, and Williams' Elements of Chemistry are meeting with great success. The advance pages of Davis' Elementary Physical Geography are ready, and the complete book will appear soon.

Vertical Writing. Such cities as Columbus, Akron, Massillon, Salem, Logan, Batavia, Painesville and Cuyahoga Falls have adopted our Shaylor's Vertical Round Hand Writing Books during the past summer. In many respects these are superior books. Before choosing a series, write us and one of our representatives will call on you.

Music. While other much advertised series are dropping out, the Educational Music Course is steadily gaining. Within a few weeks it has been adopted in Newark, Akron, Ravenna, Bellevue, Crestline, Defiance, and many other places. Our new course for ungraded schools or for schools having several grades in one room, the Mason Two Book School Music Course, is now completed.

History.

The publication of other series of histories seems only to emphasize the merits of our Montgomery and Myers series, as is indicated by our largely increased sales.
