[ocr errors]

The decided superiority of this work is universally acknowledged, and it has consequently superseded the use of every other edition in the principal Seminaries in this kingdom.

"We notice this New Edition of a valuable Work, because we consider it to be one of the most com plete Books of the kind for Education, that has ever issued from the Press, and the improvements so copious as to merit a distinct eulogium. The Editors deserve every praise for the pains and labour they have bestowed in perfecting the publication; and we feel confident that the Sixteenth will be followed more readily than it has been preceded by many other Editions. - Literary Ga zette, No. 187.

"We are sure we do not compromise our judgment, in pronouncing that a more neat and ingenious design, nor a more comprehensive and useful composition of the kind, was ever submitted to public approbation. It fulfils its title, and is indeed "History made Easy," For youth we cannot imagine a better device to make them fully acquainted with the genealogical portion of the history of the sovereigns of their country; and even the well-informed of maturer years will find it a convenient and expeditious reference, &c. &c. And we are satisfied that every Parent and Teacher, induced to see it by our representation, will thank us for making them acquainted with so facile and excellent a work."-Literary Gazette, No. 36, p. 211.

"Mr. Dagley, in the production before us, has turned his attention to a subject of eminent utility. In treating it he has displayed much practical knowledge, and a justness and originality of thinking which would give a value to the lowest theme, and greatly augments the merit of this compendium. For teachers, for parents, for youth desirous of acquiring an elegant accomplishment, and for alt who have a taste for the fine arts, we have satisfaction in stating, that a more unpretending and useful book has not been published in our day.”

PINNOCK'S CATECHISMS OF THE ARTS AND SCIENCES.

These approved Catechisms are intended to form the basis of every branch of useful knowledge, and are of themselves, in fact, " An Epitome of the Arts and Sciences." The style in which they are written is at once clear and simple, conveying instruction to the youthful mind in a manner unattainable by the use of more elaborate and comprehensive Works. In short, while they fix on the mind the leading facts in History, and the fundamental principles of Science, the memory is relieved from the burden of retaining a mass of minutie with which larger Books necessarily abound. They consist of separate CATECHISMS on the following subjects, price 9d. each, viz.

[blocks in formation]

Geography

Geometry

Heraldry

History of England

History of Scotland

History of Ireland

Religious Denominations Rhetoric

Sacred Geography

Scriptore History
Trade and Commerce
Universal History

"Being led to look into these Works, we have been pleasingly surprised at the variety and accuracy of the information they contain within.so small a com pass, and in so excellent a form; and we feel that we are only discharging an useful duty in communicating the result of our remarks to the public.

"The antiquity and universal adoption of the Catechetical manner of conveying instruction, is perhaps the best proof of its value. The memory is aided by the question, and the mind impressed by the answer: the former is the help which infant years need, and the latter is the essence of all intellectual acquirement. The skill necessary to balance these two qualities, so as neither to assist so much as to weaken the reasoning powers, nor to expect so much as to overpower the capacity of childhood, does appear to us to be happily displayed in these Catechisms. In short, we must say, that more convenient, accurate, well-arranged, and proper publications for the purposes they embrace, were never submitted to general approbation."

Literary Gazette, October 18, 1817.

In addition to such Battering testimony, the Proprietors hope to be excused in submitting to the Public the following important observation which fell from the Lord Chancellor when granting an Injunction to restrain certain Booksellers from printing and publishing spurious imitations of them :

"It appears to me that adults might be greatly benefitted by the instruction these books contain, as well as the younger branches of society."

The Proprietors beg leave to observe, that independent of the high encomium above mentioned, PINNOCK's CATECHISMS have met with the general approbation of the most respectable and intelligent Members of the Scholastic Profession. Anxious, therefore, not merely to preserve the reputation which these Books have already attained, but to improve them in every possible manner, it will be their constant aim carefully to revise every succeeding Edition, and to take advantage of every improvement in Literature and Science that can contribute to the instruction of Youth.
