Yonge (Charlotte M.)-THE ABRIDGED BOOK OF
Freeman (Edward A.)-OLD-ENGLISH HISTORY.
Extra fcap. 8vo. half-bound. 6s.
"I have, I hope," the author says, "shown that it is perfectly easy to teach children, from the very first, to distinguish true history alike from legend and from wilful invention, and also to understand the nature of historical authorities and to weigh one statement against another. I have throughout striven to connect the history of England with the general history of civilized Europe, and I have especially tried to make the book serve as an incentive to a more accurate study of historical geography." In the present edition the whole has been carefully revised,
and such improvements as suggested themselves have been introduced. "The book indeed is full of instruction and interest to students of all ages, and he must be a well-informed man indeed who will not rise from its perusal with clearer and more accurate ideas of a too much neglected portion of English History."-SPECTATOR.

Historical Course for Schools.-Edited by EDWARD A. FREEMAN, D.C.L., late Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford. The object of the present series is to put forth clear and correct views of history in simple language, and in the smallest space and cheapest form in which it could be done. It is meant in the first place for Schools; but it is often found that a book for schools proves useful for other readers as well, and it is hoped that this may be the case with the little books the first instalment of which is now given to the world.
