A Handbook of the English Language by Latham

Webster's primary school dictionary


8. For the interest with which it invests the subject. From the outset, the student is fascinated and filled with a desire to fathom the wonders of the material world.

9. For the embodiment of all recent discoveries in the various departments of philosophy. Instead of relying on the obsolete authorities that have furnished the matter for many of our popular school Philosophies, the author has made it his business to acquaint himself with the present state of science, and thus produced such a work as is demanded by the progressive spirit of the age.

All who have examined this book commend it in the highest terms.

"Mr. QUACKENBOS has long been favorably known as a teacher and also a writer of educational books. This elementary work on Natural Philosophy strikes us as being one of his most useful and happy efforts."--_N. Y. Courier and Enquirer._

"A very complete system. We have been particularly struck with the conciseness and intelligible character of the definitions and explanations."--_N. Y. Observer._

"It is much the most complete and instructive school-book on Natural Philosophy that we have ever seen."--_Christian Union, Louisville, Ky._

"Every reasonable requirement is met in this new work."--_Gazette,

Pittsburg, Pa._

"The whole arrangement is decidedly superior to anything of the kind that ever fell under our inspection."--_Post, Hartford, Conn._

"It places the principles and rules of philosophy within the reach of the young student in a most attractive form."--_Evening Transcript, Boston._

The publishers have now the pleasure of presenting the abridgments of Webster's American Dictionary in a carefully revised, greatly improved, and, as nearly as possible, perfected form. The series is rendered complete, and made to include a book just suited to every purpose for which an abridgment of the complete work can be desired, by the introduction of two new books, viz.: The Common School Dictionary, Intermediate between the Primary School and the High School; and the Counting-House and Family Dictionary, a much more full and comprehensive abridgment than we have before offered.
