This little volume consists of iec", very easy words and sentences, and interesting lesson#, as are calculated to lead children, step by sten, from the Alphabet. The subjects, while of a level with their understandings, will not lower lower their ideas. It is hoped that, amwng the numerous attempts to lead the young mind over the threshold of know- ledge, this little work may meet the wants of the Chilloi, and thewishes of the Teacher. 2.

In this book the reading lessons are more numerous; the subjects more choice, the order more pleasing, and tite gra- dation from the most easy to the more difficult far better preserved, than in other spelling and residing: bdnks; these is also anew and most comenient division and arrangeirkont of the spelling tubles; aud the outlines of geograpiiv, grammar, &c. exhibit the very ideas which children should lirst commit to memory. In short, teachers will find in it, tit rt) ugliolit, all that a spelling hook should possess. It has been pronounced, b able instructors, to be jjn aiiy çnpr-rbr for all the purposes ot teaching to any thing of the kind 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, vvlth their relation to things. If(, has exi)(,ririiev in teaching, has reasoned on his experience, and eviuced his knowledge in I arranging this Spelling Boük. We have compared it 'with Mayors, and several other generally esteemed lir.-t books for children, and found it in silmost every psirtietilar more simple, more congenial with the language and powers of the young mind, and better adapted for instruction, than any other work of i ts kind. The spelling and reading lessons are placed ¡ on opposite pages, and the selection of tac latter is such as 1. mast naturally expand the mitid and improve the morals of chilrlren.A II tijawbiTl He view. 3.

ENGLISH SCHOOL GRAMMAR; in which Practical illustration is, in every step, blended with Theory, by Rilles, Examples, and Exercises: adapted throughout to the Use of Schools and Private Tearhers. In this work English Grammar is rendered easy to the capa- city of the learner, not only by giving a concise outline of its general principles, but by combining theory with practice, by adapting Questions and Exercises in a well digested Order, to each Rule, by concentrating every thing essentiu), and bringiiiji it at once to the test of Practice. 15v 'it children 1 will not be engaged so long as they now are, with so much labour of the memory, and so little assistance of the uader- 5.

Expressly adapted to every Age and Capacity, and to every Class of Learners, both in Ladies' and Gentlemen's Schools. 41 We think this work entitled to unqualified approbation. ¡ It unites utiEÜy with cbeapness. Its method is simple and practicable, and well adapted to the first wants of the mind. Mr. Guy is already known as the author of some other works of a similsir nature, and thus will add to his merit in that species of composition. "—Universal Magazine, April, 1810.

I The suhject of this book is to supply a course of sums and questions, quite on a level with the capacities of learners, yet copious, various, a:.d systematic: to place the operations in that easy succession which will materially lessen, if not altogether remove, first diilicHlties; and enable the learner to comprehend the whole with sibu>,dantl\ more ease to himself, and less assistance from the master, than can be elfected by I the usual initiatory modes of iiis true tioil.
