“We have not only read these books with delight and studied them with profit in the seclusion of the library, but we have traveled with them and by them on the sea and land. At every point they meet you with just the facts you wish to know; they repeat to you the old legend associated with the locality: they tell you the story of the battle fought there; they hum to you the song. or murmur the lines in which some poet has enshrined events by which a spot has become memorable. A condensed literature of great variety and richness is stored up within their pages. They are simply indispensable to tourists in the regions named, and those who have sallied forth without them have omitted really the most important part of their equipment."- Literary World.

New York Tribune.

tions. With Sixteen Maps. $1.50. Carefully Revised and Enlarged in 1884. "Osgood's 'Hand-book to New England' bids fair, in New England, to rival the fame of Murray and Bædeker abroad. It merits the good words as well as the liberal patronage it receives, for it is a faithful, painstaking piece of work, and condenses into brief compass a vast amount of information, which all tourists to the sea-side, mountain, and country summer resorts of New England will gladly possess." —New York Evening Post.
"It is prepared with great care and thoroughness, and is the best American guide-book that has yet appeared." -The Independent.
“It is about as nearly faultless as such a book can be, --carefully edited, beautifully printed, and neatly bound. There is not a page too much or too little ; and its red cover, clean typography, and convenient size recall the masterpieces of Bædeker."- New York Tribune.

THE MARITIME PROVINCES. A Guide to Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, New Brunswick, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, etc.
With Eight Maps. Newly Revised. “By its intrinsic value, copiousness of information, and impartiality, it is likely to take the place of all other guides or handbooks of Canada which we know of."- Quebec Chronicle.

Mrs. Sylvanus Reed's Boarding and Day School for Young Ladies,
Nos. 6 and 8 East 53d Street (Central Park), between Madison and 5th Avenues.
The success and reputation of this school for twenty years is due, with God's blessing, to its own merits and to that “Eternal vigilance which is the price of safety." It is supported by that class of citizens who demand and appreciate the best educational advantages and fidelity to the true interest of their children.
Each year brings it nearer to the idea of its founder, and it has lately been relieved from the peril of depending for existence upon the tenure of a single life. The standard of the Collegiate Department for the coming year has been materially raised. While the class-rooms are in charge of ladies as heretofore, the staff of instructors has been greatly reinforced by professional talent, men of distinction in the respective branches assigned to them.
DR. LABBERTON will give his time exclusively to class instruction in this school in the Departments of History and Historical Literature,
DR. WILLIAM H, CARPENTER, of Columbia College, will have charge of English Grammar, Rhetoric, Critical Literature, Composition and Philology.
Classes in Popular and Mathematical Astronomy in charge of PROFESSOR REES, of Columbia Observatory, and Miss EDGERTON. Physics and Chemistry, PROFESSOR BOWEN, of School of Mines. Art, Professor GOODYEAR. Latin, French, German, Mathematics, Psychology and Logic will be in charge of the same able teachers as heretofore. Mrs. REED will be aided in the Boarding Department by ladies of scholarly attainments, refinement and experience, enabling her to give more of her own time to her class-rooms. Resident teachers speak the French and German languages with purity.
Pupils prepared for examinations of any class in Columbia or other colleges,
The Primary and Preparatory Departments will be continued under the same teachers. The twenty-first school year begins 0to'er I, 1884.
