A Handbook of the English Language by Latham

Physiology cannot but be considered


STANDARD DICTIONARIES OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE,

proved to be such by a sale many times greater than that of all other dictionaries published in America combined, and acknowledged such by our Courts of Justice, as well as the people at large.

The old stereotype plates having been much worn by the immense numbers of books printed from them, the occasion has been embraced to make the very thorough revision and improvement now completed. All the books in the series are now printed, therefore, on

ENTIRELY NEW ELECTROTYPE PLATES,

and are uniform in Definitions, Orthography, Orthoepy, &c.

It is deemed unnecessary to enlarge upon the claims of these well-known standard works. _Literally thousands_ of testimonials to their superiority to all others are in the hands of the publishers, from the most eminent educational and literary men in all parts of the country. From year to year their sale is steadily and rapidly increasing. It is believed that the mere _increase_ in the sale of these abridgments the present year, will be greater than the entire combined sale of all other American Dictionaries.

Class-Book of Physiology.

BY B. N. COMINGS, M. D.,

PROFESSOR OF PHYSIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, AND NATURAL HISTORY, IN CONNECTICUT STATE NORMAL SCHOOL.

12mo. 324 pages. Price $1 25.

REVISED EDITION, WITH AN APPENDIX.

Professor Comings' thorough acquaintance with every department of Physiology, and his long experience as a teacher of that science, qualify him in an eminent degree for preparing an accurate and useful text-book on the subject. He has lost no opportunity of introducing practical instructions in the principles of hygiene, thus not only making the pupil acquainted with the wondrous workmanship of his own frame, but showing him how to preserve it in a sound and healthy state. Avoiding technical terms, as far as possible, he has brought the subject fully within the comprehension of the young, and has clothed it with unusual interest, by judicious references to the comparative physiology of the inferior animals. Pictorial illustrations have been freely introduced, wherever it was thought they could aid or interest the student.

Physiology cannot but be considered, by every intelligent and reflecting mind, an exceedingly interesting and necessary study. It makes us acquainted with the structure and uses of the organs of life, and the laws by which we may keep them active and vigorous for the longest period. The publishers would respectfully urge its importance on such teachers as have not heretofore made it a regular branch in their institutions; and would solicit, at the hands of all, an impartial examination of what is pronounced by good judges, "the best elementary text-book" on the science.
