e' paints Oxford and Cambridge as they are, and contains such a picture of the two universities as shows forth every thing, good as well as bad, in true and fair proportion. The volume addresses itself to three classes of persons, though it is written in so easy and conversational a style that the formality of divisions and subdivision is kept out of sight. As a work of instruction and information for freshmen, as a wholesome initiation into the purer walks of College Life, it is the very book which a parent would desire to put into a son's hands at matriculation. The aduice it
cannot acquire from any other source. Finally, the author's style is terse, lively, and unaffected." - Gentleman's Magazine.
The following testimonial is from the lamented late Mr. Haydon, Historical Painter :- Dear Sir,
I am much pleased with the · Collegian's Guide.' It is a capital, sensible, entertaining, and true-to-nature work.
“ Yours ever, “ London, Jan. 26. 1845."

WITH ANECDOTES OF MEN OF CENIUS. This is the only book which ers the questions so commonly asked by young persons “ What would you advise me to read ? *
Course of English Reading continued. “Mr. Pyeroft's style is easy and perspicuous, unaffected, and equal to his subject : his plain and practical advice is given in a common sense way. His anecdotes and opinions of innumerable men of letters make his little book a very interesting one, rather after the style of Disraeli's Curiosities of Literature.' We have no hesitation in recommending it as a very useful companion to every lover of literature, and more particularly to young persons. It is the best of all school prizes as a present for youth, because the stories render it an excitement, and the instructions and advice direct the endeavours it has served to stimulate."- Gentleman's Magazine.

GREEK GRAMMAR PRACTICE,
On the same Plan (price 3s. 6d. cloth). “ We greatly desire to see these admirable little books in use in every school. To parents preparing their sons for school they are invaluable: any governess might use them. We have been assured by a friend, who has adopted the system, that it enables him to teach as much in one year as by the old method he can teach in three, and that, too, with the greatest entertainment to the pupil.” — Gentleman's Magazine.
“ I write with much pleasure to say how much I am pleased with the Latin and Greek Grammar Practice, in actual use.
."W. DRAKE, M. A. Coventry Grammar School.
In use also (or promised) at the City of London School, Kensington Proprietary School, Huddersfield Proprietary School, Cheltenham Proprietary School, &c.
Parents desirous of grounding their sons for the public schools will find these works highly valuable. They have the approbation of some of the first scholars and instructors. The Rev. J. E. Riddle, author of the Latin Dictionary, has testified to their value to junior classes, to those who would teach themselves, and all who would make progress in a sound acquaintance with Greek and Latin Grammar. Words and
phrases are taught at the same time as rules and reflections. The plan is, to learn a vocabulary as the first lesson, to construe the same words in sentences as the second, and to re-translate as the third ; not superseding, but applying, the simple rules of every grammar equally.
