Full explanations are supplied, and these illustrated by numerous citations from the elder writers. An index of editions quoted is appended.

Jex-Blake.—A VISIT TO SOME AMERICAN SCHOOLS

AND COLLEGES. By SOPHIA JEX-BLAKE. Crown 8vo. cloth. 6s.

In the following pages I have endeavoured to give a simple and accurate account of what I saw during a series of visits to some of the Schools ind Colleges in the United States. . . I wish simply to give other teachers an opportunity of seeing through my eyes what they cannot perhaps see for themselves, and to this end I have recorded just such particulars as I should myself care to know.”—AUTHOR'S PREFACE.

GENERAL EDUCATION. By RICHARD QUAIN, F.R.S.
Crown 8vo. 35. 6d.

Having been charged by the College of Surgeons with the delivery of the Hunterian Oration for 1869, the Author has availed himself of the occasion to bring under notice some defects in the general education of the country, which, in his opinion, effect injuriously all classes of the people, and not least the members of his own profession. The earlier pages of the address contain a short notice of the genius and labours of John Hunter, but the subject of education will be found to occupy the larger part-from page twelve to the end.
