The series will be found suitable for the poorer population of our towns, the inhabitants of our cuasts, and our Soldiers and Sailors in barracks and on board ship; also for reading in night schools, and for parish Libraries.

Educational Works.

GOOD HANDWRITING.

GEORGE DARNELL'S COPY-BOOKS after over a quarter

of a century of public favour are everywhere acknowledged as the best for simplicity and thoroughness. With these Copy-Books the pupil advances in the art of writing with ease and rapidity, while the labour of the teacher is very greatly lightened. They are used in nearly all the best Schools in Great Britain and the Colonies, and are adapted to the New Educational Code.

ADVANTAGES OF THE SYSTEM.

1. It is the production of an experienced Schoolmaster. II. It gradually advances from the Simple Stroke to the superior Small Hand. III. The assistance given in the Primal Lesson is reduced as the learner progresses, until all

guidance is safely withdrawn. IV. The number and variety of the copies secure attention, and prevent the pupils copying their

own writing, as in books with single head-lines. V. The system insures the progress of the learner, and greatly lightens the labour of the teacher.

DARNELL'S LARGE POST COPY-BOOKS; A Short

and Certain Road to a Good Handwriting. 16 Nos., 6d. each. Being a Series of SIXTEEN COPY BOOKS, by GEORGE DARNELL, the first ten of which have on every alternate line appropriate and carefully written copies in Pencil-coloured Ink, to be first written over and then imitated, the remaining numbers having Black Head-lines for imitation only, The

As to the necessity of some one proposing a new way to teach writing, I do not think it is needed. Let a London Clerk inspect one of Mr. Darnell's Copy Books (I believe they are most generally in use in our schools), and I think he will say that, with a moderate amount of care on the part of the teacher, THE RESULT MUST BE A LEGIBLE, CLEAR HAND-WRITING."--An Essex Schoolmaster; National Society's Monthly Paper.

The Times says: “This gentleman has conferred a great benefit, not only on the rising generation, but on those who will hereafter form the rising generation. He has composed a series of Elementary Treatises, in which the comprehension of the art or science taught is so much facilitated that children of the dullest capacities are made capable of comprehending what is required of them, whilst teachers are relieved from the difficulties of imparting knowledge in the desultory and incomprehensible manner too often practised."
