THE MANUAL EDITIONS

OF THE CIRCLE OF KNOWLEDGE.

Including the Reading Book, the Explanations, and the Questions.

Gradation I., with Manual, 230 pp., 16mo, ls.6d.

The Explanations are as short and simple as the nature of the subjects

will allow; the Questions are to a great extent literal and suggestive, but

difficult enough for children at this stage of progress.

Gradation II., with Manual, 230 pp., 16mo, 1s.6d.

The Explanations contain much additional matter illustrative of the

Lessons; the Questions turn on the information in both the notes and the

lessons.

Gradation III., with Manual, 430 pp., 16mo, 3s.6d.

The words explained are generally traced to their roots, thus furnishing

a clue to both their primitive and their acquired meaning; the notes com-

prise much information on the subjects of the Lessons; and the Questions

are of such a nature as will thoroughly test the amount and quality of the

knowledge acquired.

THE CIRCLE OF KNOWLEDGE.

IMPROVED TABLET LESSONS. These Tablet Lessons are printed in a bold type, suitable for classes of twenty pupils. If used with the metal frames provided for them, each series will låst, with only moderate care, many years, as they are printed on a strong cartridge paper.

There is great economy in the use of Tablet Lessons, independent of the saving of books-namely, that any series may be divided into subjects one section being supplied to one class, another to another class, and so on. The same remark applies to different schools under the same management—boys and girls, for instance; the only extra cost being the additional Frame or Frames required.

By dividing the Tablet Lessons into Five Series, they may be obtained in complete portions at a comparatively small occasional expenditure. THE FIVE SERIES OF TABLET LESSONS.
