GEORGE DARNELL'S COPY BOOKS.

These Copy Books are the production of an experienced Schoolmaster; they insure the progress of the learner, and greatly lighten the labours of the teacher. The copies gradually advance from a simple stroke to a superior small-hand. Their great variety secures attention, and prevents the pupils from copying their own writing as in books with single head lines.

LARGE Post, Sixteen Numbers, 6d. each.
FOOLSCAP, Twenty-four Numbers, 3d. each.
UNIVERSAL, Sixteen Numbers, 2d each.

“For teaching writing I would recommend the use of Darnell's Copy

used."-Report of Mr. Maye (National Society's Organiser of Schools)
to the Worcester Diocesan Board of Education.
