This Selection has been made in compliance with the request of

Diocesan Church Education Society, whose Committee were not acquainted with a publication exactly suited to their views of what was required for the assistance of their scholars.

It has been taken from the first nine volumes of the Saturday Magazine, published under the direction of the Committee for General Literature and Education of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. The Selections, therefore, may be

used with confidence, as having substantially received the Society's sanction.

The arrangement is such as was thought best adapted to the purpose of the Work; the first volume being more suitable for lower classes; the others for young persons in a more advanced stage of education.
