Conducted by the Rev. A. J. CHURCH, M.A., Head Master

of the Royal Grammar School, Henley-on-Thames.

It is proposed to publish a series of very cheap School Books, each containing from fifty to one hundred pages, in strong cloth binding which will be sold at prices varying from Sixpence to One Shilling.

Small books, sold at a low price, which will serve for a term, or a half-year, and be read from beginning to end, will, it is thought, be found to effect an economy in what is often a heavy expense.

The following books of the series are ready :1. OVID. Select passages; with Notes and Introductions by the

Rev. A. J. CHURCH, M.A., Head Master of the Grammar

School, Henley-on-Thames. 16mo, cloth, 6d. 2. HORACE. Select Odes; with Notes and Introductions by the Rev.

The SATURDAY REVIEW says:-"To produce Latin and English selections from the classics of both tongues, so well and exquisitely printed, so strongly bound, so sensibly annotated, involves a very considerable expense, and we should be sorry to attempt a calculation of the number of copies that must be sold before the scheme can pay.

We cannot too warmly hail this series. If all the school. masters in England would adopt it, they would have fewer occasions to

nplain of boys not having read their notes, and fewer grumblings on the part of patresfamilias at the heavy items of the book bill.”

The Pall Mall GAZETTE says :-"We readily contribute our testimony to the value of the whole work. Such books were much needed. They are edited with great carefulness and ability.”
