ZINCKE.—SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF THE
FUTURE; Or, a Sketch of the Solution which Time appears to be preparing for the different Educational Questions of the Day. By the Rev. Foster Barham Zincke, Vicar of Wherstead, near Ipswich. Post 8vo. 7s. cloth.
"Mr. Zincke has, in the compass of a few pages, supplied us with a large amount of most valuable matter, and supported his arguments by a variety of appropriate and cogent illustrations We hail him as a powerful advocate of »
great and good cause, and cordially recommend thi? small volume to the attention of all persons who take an interest in
the question to which it relates We entertain so high an opinion of the value of Mr. Zincke's remarks, that we should
he glad if we could spare sufficient space for a full analysis both of his arguments and his plans; but, as we cannot do this, we must content ourselves with giving a general summary of the contents of the volume, and a quotation or two
illustrative of the extensive and practical views embraced by the author His views are on the whole 1ust, liheral, and
comprehensive, and he has the great merit of saying much in few words. We have, indeed, seldom met with so much important matter condensed into so small a space. Almost every topic that the consideration of such a question includes I is touched upon by the author, aud yet the whole volume contains only 236 pages, and of this numher 76 are occupied hy an appendix, which is by no means the least interesting or important part of the work."
