“It will not be too much to say, that of all uninspired writings, (if these be uninspired,)
Milton's are the most worthy of profound study by all minds which would know the
creativeness, the splendour, the learning, the eloquence, the wisdom, to which the
human intellect can reach."--Sir Egerton Brydges.

"That fervid Genius, which has cast a sort of shade upon all the other works of
man."-

PROF. JAMES R. BOYD'S WORKS.

EMBRACING

COMPOSITION, LOGIC, LITERATURE, RHETORIC, CRITICISM,

BIOGRAPHY;--POETRY, AND PROSE.

BOYD'S COMPOSITION AND RHETORIC. Remarkable for the space and attention given to grammatical principles, to affori a substantial groundwork; also for the admirable treatment of synonyms, figurative language, and the sources of argument and illustration, with notable ex ercises for preparing the way to poetic composition.

BOYD'S ELEMENTS OF LOGIC explains, first, the conditions and processes by which the mind receives ideas, and then unfolds the art of reasoning, with clear directions for the establishment and confirmation of sound judgment." A thoroughly practical treatise, being a systematic and philosophical condensation of all that is known of the subject.

BOYD'S KAMES' CRITICISM. This standard work, as is well known, treats of the faculty of perception, and the result of its exercise upon the tastes and emotions. It may therefore be termed a Compendium of Aesthetics and Natural Morals; and its use in refining the mind and heart has made it a standard text-book.

BOYD'S ANNOTATED ENGLISH CLASSICS. Milton's Paradise Lost.

Thomson's. Seasons. Young's Night Thoughts.

Pollok's Course of Timc. Cowper's Task, Table Talk, &c. Lord Bacon's Essays. In six cheap volumes. The service done to literature, by Prof. Boyd's Annota. tions upon these standard writers, can with difficulty be estimated. Line by line their expressions and ideas are analyzed and discussed, until the best comprehension of the powerful use of language is obtained by the learner.

Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1864, by

CHARLES DEXTER CLEVELAND,
In the Clerk's Office of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
