CHARLES S. FRANCIS, 252 BROADWAY,
AND SOLD BY ALL BOOKSELLERS IN THE UNITED STATES.
FUND KARVARD COLLEGE LIBRARY TO OUR GENEROUS YOUNG PATRONS. You have encouraged Parley's Magazine so well that my publishers mean to continue the work as usual, with as much better matter as can possibly be obtained, and with the same punctuality as heretofore. No pains will be spared to make it useful as well as pleasing to all of you. Subscribers for the next year will please transmit their one dollar for one copy, or their five dollars for six copies, as early as convenient; as the conditions prescribe the payment in advance, and the expenses are so many that unless this method is followed up, the publishers cannot afford to send the work out.
To new subscribers it is proper to give some idea of the contents of the work: and the following may be mentioned as forming a portion of the more prominent subjects.
I. Geographical Descriptions, of manners, customs and countries.
JII. Interesting Historical Notices and Anecdotes of each State, and of the
IV. Biography, particularly of young persons.
VI. A familiar description of the Objects that daily surround Children in the
VII. Original Tales, consisting of Home Scenes, Stories of Adventure, &c., calculated to stimulate the curiosity, exercise the affections, and improve the judge ment.
VIII. An Account of various trades and pursuits, and some branches of commerce.
IX. Cheerful and pleasing Rhymes, adapted to the feelings and comprehension of youth.
The Publishers have made arrangements to have the work abundantly illustrated with spirited engravings, and every effort will be taken to render it a useful auxiliary to the cause of education.
