JUST READY, Dean's Illustrated Modern Spelling, with meanings, and
Reading Book, combining the information of Carpenter, with the
usefulness of Butter, and the simplicity of Mavor. Sell 1s. 6d. This Spelling Book is really one of, if not the best in the trade. To a great extent it furnishes information that can only be obtained from Dictionaries and extensive Encyclopædias ; in it, also, more than the usual prominence is given to words of one and two syllables, forming as they do the roots of those that are more complicated and difficult. With regard to those words, great attention has been paid to interest the pupil, and imperceptibly draw his attention to those terms and subjects which are likely to be of use to him at a future period. Another novelty in this spelling book is the introduction, on nearly every page of miscellaneous reading, of about a quarter of the page, of useful and entertaining matter. The book is nicely got up, being illustrated with eighty engravings of useful objects. ,
Bound in cloth (very strongly), sprinkled edges, gilt on side and back. The Trade' may with safety recommend this book to schools and families. The Illustrated London and American Webster Spelling and
Reading Book. Sell 1s. Of this, the best illustrated Webster Spelling in the Trade-DEAN and Son have sold over 12,000 in little more than a year. It is illustrated with more than 150 engravings, whilst care has been taken in the arrangement of the book, Dean and Son having had the American Edition revised and re-edited; it is made to advance progressively. The first part is devoted to Spelling and Reading, the Spelling principally in words of one syllable; the second to Spelling and Reading further advanced; whilst the third part is devoted to hard and difficult Spelling and Reading. A novelty in this Spelling Book is the introduction, round every page, of moral maxims, to be committed to memory by youth,
Bound in cloth, very strongly, sprinkled edges, gilt on side.
