ELEMENTS OF MODERN GEOGRAPHY,

FOR THE USE OF JUNIOR CLASSES.

“The best Geography we have ever met with."-Spectator.

“We are glad to be able very strongly to recommend the 'Elements 'to the attention of teachers, as one of the best, one of the very good schoolbooks of Geography in existence. We can recommend it on account of its fulness, yet within manageable limits. Its information is the most recent. We have tested its accuracy, by comparison with independent sources of information within our reach, and that in connection with our own country, with Denmark and the United States : we have in no case found any serious discrepancy. To accuracy and freshness of matter, it adds terseness of style and clearness of arrangement-the latter much aided by varieties of typography.”-Museum.

LATELY PUBLISHED, BY THE SAME AUTHOR, A MANUAL OF MODERN GEOGRAPHY,

MATHEMATICAL, PHYSICAL, AND POLITICAL, AND EMBRACING A COMPLETE DEVELOPMENT OF THE RIVER-SYSTEMS

OF THE GLOBE. Crown 8vo, pp. 752, with a copious Index, price 78. 6d. bound. The 'MANUAL' is designed for those who have made some proficiency in Geography, and especially for Teachers, who will find in its varied contents all the information they are likely to require for instructing their classes in that many-sided and deeply interesting science. The Elementary Work has been expressly prepared for the wants and capacities of Pupils. Consisting, in the main, of a careful abridgment of the 'MANUAL' and following the same order of arrangement, it presents the results of the latest census of the various countries, and exhibits the progress of discovery to the date of publication.

“Of all the Manuals on Geography that have come under our notice, we place the one whose title is given above in the first rank. For fulness of information, for knowledge of method in arrangement, for the manner in which the details are handled, we know of no work that can, in these respects, compete with Mr Mackay's Manual.'” - English Journal of Education.
