The book contains treatises in Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, History, Geography, Grammar, and Music, with a number of questions set in the previous examinations, and the syllabus for the Privy Council Examinations."--National Schoolmaster.

"Those who wish to be crammed with information in a compact form have the material in this volume, or rather series of volumes, rolled into one. For a crown piece an acting teacher may have at his elbow all the subjects of examination so arranged as to prime him for the ordeal of examination. Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, History, Geography, Grammar, follow each other in slices, each subject being divided into several portions. At the end we are presented with the syllabus for examination."-Schoolmaster. Major's Diocesan Scripture Manuals. Old Testament, 28.; New Testament,

"As a compilation and commentary we can speak in high terms of this volume; the method of ts arrangement and general fitness for school use are highly praiseworthy."—Schoolmaster.

Besides the history contained in the sour Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles, an analysis of the Epistles is given; a useful table of geographical names, a number of questions already set at Diocesan Examinations, and notes of lessons suitable for Scripture teaching."-National Schoolmaster.

"An admirable book, and will be soon in use among all teachers of Church Schools. The experiences of many will call to mind the great trouble they have had merely to make useful selections from larger works. Mr. Major does all this for him. In speaking thus strongly of this book we are not unmindful of the claims of another admirable series." -Schoolmaster.

"Much useful information n a handy form, and will fill up a gap in Pupil Teacher literature."Rev. W. T. Smith, Diocesan Inspector, Canterbury.

“A valuable addition to a Pupil Teacher's library. I shall have much pleasure in recommending them for general use."- Rev. J.'W. Gedge, Diocesan Inspector, Surrey.
