MACMILLAN'S COPY-BOOKS Continued

By a simple device the copies, which are printed upon separate slips, are arranged with a movable attachment, by which they are adjusted so as to be directly before the eye of the pupil at all points of his progress. It enables him, also, to keep his own faults concealed, with perfect models constantly in view for imitation. Every experienced teacher knows the advantage of the slip copy, but its practical application has never before been successfully accomplished. This feature is secured exclusively to Macmillan's Copy-books under Goodman's patent. MACMILLAN'S PROGRESSIVE French courSE-By G.

"They are far above any others that have appeared both in form and substance.. The editor of the present series has rightly seen that reading books must aim chiefly at giving to the pupils the power of accurate, and, if possible, apt and skilful expression; at cultivating in them a good literary taste, and at arousing a desire of further reading. This is done by taking care to select the extracts from true English classics, going up in Standard VI. course to Chaucer, Hooker, and Bacon, as well as Wordsworth, Macaulay, and Froude. This is quite on the right track, and indicates justly the ideal which we ought to set before us." GUARDIAN.

"This is a grammar and conversation book in one, and avoids with great success the tediousness too common in grammars and the silliness too common in conversation books. It will not be Messrs. Vincent and

Dickson's fault if their work does not contribute materially to the study of Greek by Englishmen as a living language."-PALL MALL GAZETTE.
