Excerpt from Report of the Superintendent of Public Instruction in Reply to an Order of the House: March 8th, 1867
These books have been carefully examined by the members of the Board, ' and compared with a large variety of publica' tions submitted to their inspection. After mature and some what protracted deliberation, a decision was reached, which, I think, will meet with general approbation. From the many valuable series of books in every department of School and High School literature submitted to us, it was, in most cases, very difficult to decide which were the best; and now that the selection is made, it is proper to say that, while we deem those which have been adopted to be the best for our purposes, yet there are other series of great and perhaps equal value.
The cause of Education owes much of its present successful advancement to the energy and enterprise of our publishers, and to the intelligent agents whom they employ to set forth the peculiar advantages of their books, and to explain to teachers the proper methods of using them in the class-room.
