These entirely new books contain the very freshest and most unhackneyed selection of good speakable pieces now accessible to seekers after new subjects for declamation and recitation. The standard orators and authors whose works are fitted to declamation furnish a new supply of selections, and those pieces by recent writers which have found most favor with elocutionists and public readers have been given a place in these books, which are graded to meet the needs of persons of all ages.

"We know of no work of its kind before offered to the public which can better meet the wants of the student."— - University Quarterly.

"One great merit of the books is the fact that the pieces are nearly all new.' Boston Transcript.

"There is a great variety of fresh, short, pointed pieces. They are well adapted to develop natural, rational speaking." -Herald and Presbyter.

Prof.

"The freshness as well as the intrinsic merit of the selections ought to commend the volumes to thousands of American boys in search of good declamations." — F. M. Burdick, Hamilton College.

"They are good books and will have the approval of all who use them. The 'National Advanced Speaker' has an admirable collection of declamations; in some respects the best that has been compiled for the use of advanced students." - Henry A. Frink, Professor of Logic and Oratory, Amherst College.

"We commend these volumes strongly to teachers, reading circles, and for school libraries." — American Journal of Education.

OF

HUMAN PSYCHOLOGY.

AN INTRODUCTION TO PHILOSOPHY.

Being a Brief Treatise on Intellect, Feeling, and Will.

BY E. JANES, A.M.

12mo, Cloth,

$1.50.

This book is intended for use in Schools and Colleges, by classes beginning the study of Philosophy, and is also adapted to the wants of the general reader. Its definitions are clear and concise. Its treatment of the subject is such as to impart to the student who goes no further, an adequate knowledge of the elements of Psychology, and to lay a solid foundation for the future work of the student of Philosophy. Equally free from theological and materialistic bias, it equips the mind for the unprejudiced study of more advanced works. Its value to teachers, in adequately presenting those fundamental truths which must form the basis of every proper system of philosophical instruction, has already been so far appreciated as to secure its adoption in the Normal College, New York City, the University of California, and numerous other Schools and Colleges.

"It is one of the best books for class instruction now before the public. My experience of upwards of fourteen years in teaching Psychology to Senior classes in Normal Schools and Colleges, has prepared me to value your book, and to predict its wide approval by other teachers."-J. C. GREENOUGH, President Massachusetts Agricultural Coll., Amherst, Mass.

"It shows extended research, careful discrimination, and good judgment, and I congratulate you on having produced such a work."-MARK HOPKINS, President Williams College.

"I have examined it with a good deal of satisfaction. It seems to me to be all you claim for it in the preface. It is up to the later views and investigations in Psychology, and I think sound in doctrine."-S. L. CALDWELL, President Vassar College.

"Its completeness and comparative brevity entitle it to careful consideration on the part of those who are selecting such a book."-The Examiner. Sent to teachers for examination on receipt of one-half the retail price.
