READING-CLUB BOOKS ON TEACHING.
The growth of State Reading-Circles among teachers within the past year or two has been a marvel. The following are the books on Pedagogy recently adopted; and these editions have been prepared with Notes, Analyses, etc., expressly to meet this demand.
Sully's Psychology, abridged and annotated with Review,
330 -Payne's Lectures on Education, indexed and analyzed. Pp. 281
Quick's Educational Reformers. 1886 Edition..
Hoose's Province of Methods in Teaching. Pp. 376..
Page's Theory and Practice of Teaching. 12mo, pp. 422.
On some of these books Special Prices are made to members of certain Reading Circles. In all such cases our rates for our own superior editions are the same as the lowest offered for any edition of the books.

SYRACUSE, N. Y.:
C. W. BARDEEN, PUBLISHER.
The plates from which this work has hitherto been issued having become so worn as to necessitate renewal, I have made the page uniform with the "Reading-Club" editions of Sully's "Outlines of Psychology with special reference to the Theory of Education," Tate's "Philosophy of Education," Payne's "Science and Art of Education," DeGraff's "School-Room Guide," etc.
I have also inserted in brackets translations of the many Latin, French, and German quotations. Prof. Quick wrote for the English schoolmaster, who is usually a university graduate, little thinking that the book would be purchased in thousands by the common-school teachers of America. These passages in foreign tongues have heretofore made many paragraphs unintelligible to these readers, who will appreciate the fact that this edition may be understood from preface to finis by those who have no other language than English.
The Index is entirely new and much fuller than in former editions. Especial pains has been taken to facilitate ready comparison of different views upon the same subject, and especially to indicate the passages where reference is made to the influence of one reformer upon others who followed him.
I have also added a few bibliographical notes, and in general it may be said that everything in brackets [ ] is an addition of mine to the matter of previous editions. SYRACUSE, N. Y., March 15, 1886.
