The Rev. Dr. PEACOCK, Dean of Ely. “A most useful publication. The Rules are stated with great clearness. The Examples are well selected, and worked out with just sufficient detail without being encumbered by too minute explanations; and there prevails throughout it that just proportion of theory and practice, which is the crowning excellence of an elementary work.”
Rev. S. HAWTREY, Mathematical Master, Eton. “ Tutors preparing young men for College will find the book invaluable. I cannot but think it must supersede all others.”
Rev. J. A. L. AIREY, M.A., Late Fellow of Pembroke College, and
Mathematical Master in Merchant Tailors' School, London, “I have no hesitation in saying that, in my opinion, it is the most clear and sensible treatise at all events on Arithmetic--that I have ever seen.
Rev. JAMES PORTER, M.A., Fellow of St Peter's College, and Mathe
matical Master of the Liverpool Collegiate Institution. “ I have been using Mr. Barnard Smith's work on Arithmetic as a text-book in my Classes since its publication, and I have no hesitation in pronouncing it the best book on the subject with which I am acquainted."
Rev. T. WILKINSON, Her Majesty's Inspector of Episcopal Schools,
in Scotland. “I have had the opportunity of recommending Mr. Barnard Smith's valuable Work into many schools in my district, and it has everywhere given the greatest satisfaction."
Rev. C. Scott, M.A., of St John's College, Cambridge, Mathematical
Master of Wimborne Grammar School, Dorset.
“It places in a more prominent light than any other Arithmetic I have seen, the difficulties which all boys meet with and endeavour to pass over without comprehending."
Rev. W. J. UNWIN, Principal of Homerton College. “I have adopted Mr. Barnard Smith's 'Arithmetic and Algebra' in the Training Institution of the Congregational Board of Education as a Text-Book for the Students, and I have every reason to be satisfied with it, as more adapted to my purpose than any other treatise with which I am acquainted.”
EDUCATIONAL TIMės, March, 1853. “ It is one of the really good Books which the world receives only when a teacher of the first class sits down to disclose the extent of his knowledge and the secret of his success."
THE EDUCATOR, May, 1853. “ The definitions are exact, the examples well chosen, and the illustrations of the processes full and clear.”
ATHENÆUM, April 24, 1854. “ To all whose minds are sufficiently developed to comprehend the simplest mathematical reasoning, and who have not yet thoroughly mastered the principles of Arithmetic and Algebra, it is calculated to be of great advantage. We are not surprised to find it has obtained high encomiums from Dr. Peacock and many others who have tested its value.”
ENGLISH JOURNAL OF EDUCATION, July, 1854. “Mr. Smith's treatise on Arithmetic and Algebra is the best that has ever come under our observation,”
