LONGMANS' SCHOOL GRAMMAR. Part I., Parts

of Speech; Part II., Classification and Inflexion ; Part III.,
Analysis of Sentences; Part IV., History and Derivation.

With Notes for Teachers and Index. 272 pages. 12mo.
* This is a better book by far than any in common use in this
country, with the possible exception of Professor Whitney's Essentials,
and the latter is not so full. The present "grammar” begins with
induction, but passes immediately to deduction, and both methods
are employed throughout, each induction leading to new deductions.
Hence it is thoroughly logical and scientific, though the author would
probably claim to be a teacher and grammarian rather than a
scientist. He has produced one of the best working grammars we
have ever seen, and this applies to all its parts. It is excellently
arranged and perfectly graded. Part IV., on History and Deriva-
tion, is as beautiful and interesting as it is valuable-but this might
be said of the whole book.'-NEW YORK TEACHER,
