This book is designed as an introduction to
Fourth Class Reader, and to be used by the highest classes in Primary or Intermediate Schools. It has been chiefly prepared by a gentleman long engaged in teaching, and of much practical experience in all that relates to education, but under my direct and careful supervision. It contains lessons in enunciation, with brief directions to teachers, and selections in verse and prose for reading lessons. Many of the selections are illustrated by original sketches, designed by Mr. Hammatt Billings, and engraved by Mr. John Andrew. The spirit and grace of these illustrations will be recognized by all; and they cannot fail to make the book more attractive to those for whose use it is designed.
