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 atıractive 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.

- 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 place on the walls of every schoolroom.The Schoolmaster.

PLATE III. THE CHEST AND ABDOMEN, showing the grouping of the internal organs, i.e., the Lungs, with the Bronchial tubes; the Heart, the Diaphragm, the Stomach, the Intestines, the Liver, the Gall Bladder ; also separately, the Heart, with the circulation of the blood, the Lungs, the Stomach.


" Of the diagrams we cannot speak too highly; they are, in fact, not properly diagrams, but wall pictures in which the form, position and proportion of the several organs and structures are represented with unusual accuracy."The Schoolmaster.

" This series of three diagrams has a very distinct advantage over many others. No difficulty is experienced in making them comprehensive to the student. For truthful drawings, and as reliable scientific aids they are not excelled by any series extant. With the diagrams is published a key entitled. The structure and care of the human body,' and this little work is deserving of the highest praise."The Board Teacher.

“They have evidently been drawn with strict regard to anatomical details, and are coloured so as to show distinctly the various organs and their parts. An accompanying key to the diagrams, in which the whole of them are given on a reduced scale, has been revised by Dr. William R. Smith, Medical Officer to the School Board for London. They are excellent for their purpose, and moreover are comparatively cheap, the four plates (numbers 1 and 2 being mounted together) on rollers, and varnished, being only twenty-one shillings.”The Bookseller.

First Aid to the Injured."

Two large Diagrams showing the course to be pursued in cases of Accident until medical assistance can be procured PLATE I.

Gives illustrations of Fractured Bone, and Wounds in the Head and Limbs, with full directions as to treatment.


Illustrates the mode of proceeding in cases of Drowning, Suffocation,

Sunstroke, or Unconsciousness.

The instructions at the foot of each Diagram are simply written, so that, with the aid of the Illustrations, a knowledge of what to do and how to do it, in cases of Accident, may be easily and speedily acquired.

The importance and advantage of being able to deal promptly and skilfully with Accidents are sufficiently obvious.

Size, 58 by 50 inches. Mounted on Cloth and Rollers, Varnished. No. 1.—Chemical Apparatus, with explanatory key, price 12s.



Nos. 1& 2 (Being Nos. 2 & 3 of A. Johnston's Standard Series of School Diagrams.) Price, mounted on Cloth and Rollers, Varnished, each 21s.

Size, 68 by 50 inches. Accompanied by Explanatory Keys to each Diagram, gratis. Diagram No. 1 introduces the subject in depicting, by beautifully-coloured illustrations, a visit to a Coal Mine, the source of our great national wealth. The illustrations show how the miners reach the coal, how they work it, and how it is brought to the surface. The implements, lamps, trolleys, &c., used, are all shown, as well as the methods used for ventilating the pit, mapping out the progress made, the supporting of the earth above, &c. A map of the British Coal Fields is given, and several illustrations showing the position of the coalbearing strata, how it was formed, how it is reached, and the difficulties met with in reaching it. There are altogether on this diagram, 49 illustrations bearing on this most important subject, and 7 illustrations of Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Geysers, &c.

Diagram No. 2 is chiefly connected with Physical Geography, illustrating by 78 coloured diagrams the position and action of Water in its many forms of clouds, rain, snow, ice, glaciers, rivers, springs, wells, &c.; also the Mirage, Aurora, Sandstorms, and Waterspouts, Climate by elevation, and Geology in many of its bearings, viz. :-Theoretical Section of the Earth's Crust, Sections of Continents, General View of the British Strata, Old Sea Beaches, Fossils from various strata, Granite, Basaltic Columns, Stalactites, Chalk, Coal, Earth Pillars, Pitch Lake, Salt Mines, &c., &c.

" These are a pair of magnificent wall charts, mounted and varnished for hanging, offering every possible aid to the class lecturer, and every possible attraction to the fancy, the interest, and the intelligence of children. Accompanying the charts are pamphlets forming a complete scientific and instructive key to the diagrams. They are all the teacher or lecturer needs for his task."School Board Chronicle.

" Excellent examples of the uses to which pictorial illustrations may be put in schoolwork are afforded by A. Johnston's standard diagrams of Physiography. Two sheets of diagrams, mounted on cloth and rollers, and accompanied by explanatory keys, present the facts of Physiography in a form likely to be most useful for the teacher, and attractive to the learner."-The Scotsman.

- These two large sheets form an admirable beginning to the standard series of illustrations in the direction of Physiography. Both sheets, we venture to predict will soon be seen on the walls of most schools in which the science subject of Physiography is regularly taught, and will suitably oroament others for the purposes of reference during many an “ Object lesson." The bɔld outlines and the effective colouring of these illustrations will, of themselves, excite attention and curiosity, and a course of lessons on this series of diagrams might be a most instructive and popular one in elementary science. The publisher has provided a welcome boom to many a teacher.”The Schoolmaster.
