A Key to the History of Civilization in Europe, being a descriptive handbook
to the Plates, price is.

These illustrations do not pretend to demonstrate systematically the gradual development of any special feature in the History of Civilization, they are rather intended to present animated pictures of representative periods, which are likely to prove more attractive than any number of detailed sketches.

The present set of plates exceed in beauty and fidelity anything we have ever seen in this direction. They are worthy of being put under glass and in frames, and for fidelity in detail, for boldness of design and for usefulness, are beyond all praise. We prophesy their sale by thousands. It is seldom a practical teacher and reviewer is able to write in such glowing terms, but nothing too good can be said of these pictures either from an educational or art point of view. Let the teacher, the literary lecturer, the workmen's club secretary, journey to 'the Row' and see for themselves."-The Schoolmaster.

"These pictures measure 35 by 27 inches and are really works of art."School Board Chronicle.

"The pictures are not only drawn with fair regard to artistic effect, but they are also most accurate in their details."-The Bookseller.

"We are guilty of no exaggeration in describing these plates as the best of the kind which have yet come under our notice. Their educational value is undoubted, and may be described as being dependent on two main qualifications -their size, and the accuracy of treatment exhibited. As for general design and execution, each plate might be described as a work of art. Highly commended' is our verdict with respect to these really beautiful representations of plant life."-The Practical Teacher.

These first-rate botanical plates deserve a place on the walls of every schoolroom."-The Schoolmaster.
