J GUY'S NEW BRITISH SPELLING BOOK, or an Introduction to Spelling and Reading, in Seven Parte, con- taining a great variety of easy Lessons exactly adapted to the capacities of Youth, and arranged in a new, easy, and pleasing order; the Tables of Words are divided and accented according to the purest modes of pronunciation. In this book the reading lessons are more numerous, the subjects more choice, the order more pleasing, and the gra- dation from the most easy to the more difficult far bettur preserved, than in other spelling and reading books; thesek also anew and most convenient division and arrangement of the spelling tables; and the outlines of geography, grammar, &c. exhibit the very ideas which children should first commit to memory. In short, teachers will find in it, throughout, all that a spelling book should possess. I t has been pronounced, by able instructors, to be greatly superior for all the purposes of teaching to any thing of the kuid yet published. Mr. Guy seems perfectly to understand the powers and nature of the infant mind, and the best means of enabling it to comprehend the value of letters, syllables, and words, with their relation to things. He has had experience in teaching, has reasoned on his experience, and evinced his knowledge in arranging this Spelling Book. We btve coinpart- d I it ivitli Mavors, and several other generally esteemed first books for children, and found it in almost every particular more simple, more congenial w ith the language and powers of the young mind, and better adapted for instruction, than any other work of its kind. The spelling and reading lessons are placed on opposite pages, and the selection of the latter is such as must naturally expand the mind and improve the morals of ciiildr" l'ittuac(ibiri Review. 3. On fine paper, and handsomely printed, price Is. neatly hound, > GUY'S NEW BRITISH READER, or, SEQUEL to his NEW BRITISH SPELLING BOOK^lcontaining a great variety of easy Lessons, selected from the most ap- proved A utliors exhibiting a very easy gradation, and adapted to the junior classes of Ladies' and Gentlemen's ) Schools. j This w ork contains a larger selection of very easy reading, both in prose and poetry, than has yet been made for schools. The lessons are not only such as are easy t > read, but easy to comprehend, and suitable both in subject, style, and arrange- ment; AND, WHAT WILL BE DEEMED A MOST ESSENTIAL IM- PLLOVEMENT, THE MORE DIFFICULT WORDS ARE DIVIDED AND EXPLAINED. ILTTHE IJEAD OF EACH CIIAPTER. is one of the easiest and most useful guides to read- ing that we have seen; aad ttuTgradaiion from plain and fa- lnilier to the higher orders of composition is very judiciously contrived.and executed: an agreeable variety, both in prose and verse, is also introduced, as are some interesting tales. Tbe book is remarkably well printed, and of a very moderate price."—British Critic, Jula 1811. 4.

It unites utillity; with cheapness. Its method is simple and practicable, and well adapted to the first wants of the mind.
