SELECT FABLES. OLD FRIENDS in a New Dress; or select FABLES, in Verse. Third Edition. To which is now added, a Secoud Part, containing seventy-eight additional Fables, and embellished with a beautiful Frontispiece. 12mo. Price 6s, neatly half-bound.

We select the following valuable testimonials from amongst many others equally satisfactory, regarding the former editions of this little work.

“ It is the best publication of the kind which I have seen in an English dress, and it cannot fail of being creditable to the author, as well as beneficial to yoath. I think there is much useful novelty thrown into the work. The Fables are made, with great judgment, to conclude happily; they are rationally told, with intelligible circumstances connecting the different parts, and the verse is smooth, correct, and well varied.”—Lindley Murray.

“ We consider them of the first class in the department of Fable, and this Poen (the Belly and the Limbs), as one of the most finished performances of the kind since the time of our favourite Gay."--Morning Paper.

For equally favourable notices of the present enlarged edition, see the Assistant of Education La Belle Assemblee- Lady's Monthly Museum--Lady's Monthly Magazine -- Literary Chronicle - Eclectic Review Monthly Magazine - English Gentleman-Evangelical Magazine-Imperial Museum Sunday School TeacherScripture Magazine, &c. &c.

An important addition to the above valuable testimonies to the merits of this Work, is, its having been adopted into the Suppleinental Catalogue of THE SOCIETY FOR PROMOTING CHRISTIAN KNOWLEDGĚ. It has also been admitted as a Juvenile Class-Book into several Schools of the first respectability.

Demy 4to. Price 6s. boards. “ The Title very truly states the Contents of this valuable publication, and in a Commercial Country like Great Britain, where every attempt to simplify so important an Art as that of l'enmanship, must deserve encouragement; it appears to possess every merit that ought to attach to it, and as one fact will speak more in its behalf than our most laboured eulogy, we shall merely state, that a Professional Gentleman of eminence, whose avocations render it necessary for him to study the moșt concise and valuable of the many systems --- has, after having tried eleven others, given preference to, and now practises the system of Mr. Oxley."— Vide European Magazine.
