CHEAP AND ABRIDGED EDITION OF LAURIE'S GRADUATED SERIES OF READING-LESSON BOOKS.
ESPECIALLY ADAPTED TO THE SIX STANDARDS OF THE REVISED CODE.
Complete in Six Books, strongly bound in cloth.
THE ABRIDGED EDITION of the GRADUATED SERIES of READING-LESSON BOOKS, with Explanatory Notes, adapted as a Progressive Course of Beading. By J. S. Laurie. Re-edited and adapted for the most Elementary Schools by J. D. Moeell, LL.D. One of Her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools.
The Graduated Series of ReadIng Books was originally compiled previously to the introduction of the Revised Code. In their primary form all the several Books went through several Editions, and gained general approbation amongst teachers and friends of education. Although the price has already been once reduced, and some attempts made to adapt the Series to the requirements of the new code, yet it has been found by experience that a
Cheap and Abridged Edition
suited to the more Elementary class of Schools is still a desideratum. For
Book I. (or Primer) adapted to the First Standard of the
Revised Code, pp. 61, price 2d. sewed, or 4rf. cloth. 0
Book II. adapted to the Second Standard, pp. 96 0
Book III. adapted to the Third Standard, pp. 13 2 0
Book IV. adapted to the Fourth Standard, pp. 184 1
Book V. adapted to the Fifth Standard, pp. 220 1
Book VI. adapted to the Sixth Standard, pp. 288 1
these schools the price of the large edition is often found too high, and the scale of difficulty iu the several Standards somewhat too advanced.
It is chiefly to meet these objections that the present
Cheap Abridged Edition
has now been issued. The matter Iras been so selected as to present much easier gradations from one Standard to another, and the price has been still further reduced so as to bring the whole series within the reach of the poorest classes of schools in the country.
