' DEAN AND SON, 11, LUDGATE HILL, LONDON, E.C.
. For more than fifty years Messrs. DEAN AND Son have been
caterers for the young, and yet the novelties they publish this year are superior to any that have yet issued from their house. To this they would call attention, and also to the fact, that every book, however childish, is carefully read in the MSS. before being printed; it is therefore with confidence they state, that in all the works issued by them, there is nought but what may, without fear, be placed in the hands of any child.
FOR YOUNG CHILDREN ONLY. Dean & Son have, this year, published uniform with their large Sixpenny Coloured Toy Books, of which they have already published over two hundred sorts, six new ones, each illustrated with eight or more large and well coloured illustrations.

Children cannot of themselves understand the Bible and the Decalogue, and are apt to tire when catechised too long. The intention of this little work is to render the search after holiness agreeable rather than tedious, and to gather for the youthful and eager mind & few drops of Honey' and Milk' that may lead them to tread with more willing feet the path that leads to that land flowing with milk and honey-the promised Capaan eternal in the heavens." -Extract from Preface..

eathing the purest spirit of piety, is just such a book as should be put into V the hands of children of all ages, to advance their knowledge of the Scriptures and teach them to
have a correct appreciation of our Holy Decalogue."-Churchman's Revierd. Happy Sundays. In Two Series, of Twenty-six Sundays each ;
each series 3s. Forming a companion to the "“ Prince of Peace," and “Line
upon Line,” “Pleasant Sundays," &c. After observing that the Rev. Robert Bickersteth, Bishop of Ripon, has connected his name with the publication, the publishers need scarcely add their own terms of estimation ; but they cannot help advancing the opinion that “ Happy Sundays" is a book calculated to promote happiness amongst youthful readers, by affording them Sunday reading of a character both instructive in its matter and amusing in its style,
The following is an Extract from the Preface to “ Happy Sundays:"_“To :hose who delight in seeing a group of happy children nestled round their mother's knee, gleaning from her lips the lessons of piety and wisdom, and reading in her face the laws of love and kindness, to such this little book will prove a welcome boon-it will serve to lighten the task on many a dawning Sabbath, since it contains a lucid explanation of the Lessons for every Sunday throughout the year, as observed in the Church Service, adapted to the minds of those 'very babes and sucklings out of whose mouths God has ordained praise.'"
