ROLLO'S TOUR IN EUROPE:

BEING A NEW SERIES OF

ROLLO

BOOKS,

BY REV. JACOB ABBOTT.

IN SIX VOLUMES, BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED.

Extract from the Preface.

In this series of narratives we offer to the readers of the Rollo Books a continuation of the history of our little hero, by giving them an account of the adventures which such a by may be expected to meet with in making a tour of Europe. The books are intended to le books of instruction rather than of mere amusement; and, in perusing them, the reader may feel assured that all the information which they contain, not only in respect to the countri's visited, but to the customs, usages, and modes of life that are described, and also in regard to the general character of the incidents and adventures that the young travellers me. with, is in most strict accordance with fact. The main design of the narratives is, thus, the communication of useful knowledge; and everything which they contain, except what is strictly personal, in relation to the actors in the story, may be depended upon as exactly and scrupulously true.

Notices of the Press.

We know of no books that are so eagerly sought for by good boys and girls as Mr. Abbott's new series of "Rollo Books."-Hartford Christian Secretary.

Mr. Abbott has a singularly successful faculty of conveying instruction with entertainment, and of interesting all classes of readers, but more particularly the young. All will say that the more we have of such useful and pleasant volumes the better.-Salem Register.

They give excellent lessons in Geography and History, in the most pleasing forms. They are beautifully printed, and illustrated with fine engravings. - New Haven Palladium.

There is no wonder that the "Rollo Books" are so extremely popular, for we doubt if many of us "children of a larger growth" can escape their fascination. Salem Observer.

A careful perusal of the volume under notice (Switzerland) will give the young reader not only as good a geographical knowledge of the country it describes as would be obtained at a term at school, but will acquaint him with the habits, manners, and characteristics of the people of Switzerland. - American Citizen.

No living man is his equal in story-telling for the young, and the book will find its way into thousands of homes. Hartford Republican.

They contain a great deal of useful information, conveyed in a most pleasing and interesting manner. -Boston Post.

Written by one who has made the tour through which he carries his young hero, and who, from long experience, knows how to please and instruct his young readers, these volumes possess just the qualities to attract those for whom they are intended.- Norfolk Co. Journal.

The author has admirably combined the pleasing with the instructive, so that while the youthful reader is charmed by the narrative, he also gains valuable information with regard to those far-off places famed in story and song. Boston Olive Branch.

Here may be found Glees, Quartets, Trios and Songs, suited to every occasion. If merry, here are pieces that will add to merriment; if sad, harmonies that will soothe sadness.

NOTICES OF A NEW WORK ON PARLIAMENTARY RULES,

BY LUTHER S. CUSHING,

TWELVE YEARS CLERK OF THE MASSACHUSETTS HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

From S. H. Walley, late Speaker of the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

I have taken great pleasure in examining the pages of this work, and do not hesitate to express most fully my approbation of its plan and execution.

On two or three questions of minor importance, I might come to different conclusions from the author; - but, inasmuch as he has devoted much time to a careful research into the subject of parliamentary rules and practice, I am free to admit, that I should feel great distrust in any opinions which I have held, even on these questions, where they differ from those expressed by Judge Cushing, without very careful reëxamination and study.

This Manual is much needed. There is no work, in this country, which is adapted near as well, in my judgment, to assist those who are called upon to preside in public assemblies, to discharge their duties acceptably and profitably to the community.

I sincerely hope and believe that this publication will receive the countenance and approbation to which it seems to me so justly entitled.

From the Law Reporter, Edited by Peleg W. Chandler, Esq.

Hon. Luther S. Cushing has prepared for the press a new Manual of Parlia mentary Practice. Having examined the manuscript of this work with considerable care, we take occasion to say, that it will be a valuable accession to the libraries of those who are called upon to preside in deliberative assemblies; and we believe the necessity of such a work as this has been very generally felt in our country, where almost every citizen is occasionally called upon to exercise the duties of a presiding officer. The work is founded upon the well-established rules and customs of the British Parliament, and Mr. Cushing divests himself of all local usages prevailing in different parts of this country; maintaining in the outset, that no assembly can ever be subject to any other rules than those which are of general application, or which it specially adopts for its own government; and denying explicitly that the rules adopted and practised upon by a legislative assembly thereby acquire the character of general laws.
