This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1906 edition. Excerpt: ...would be to make the lessons arise out of the pupil's own mental and physical activities. In courses like these, excellent as they may be, the pupil is forced into a groove which after all is not of his own making. Still these exercises indicate a very great advance upon the system which has been supplanted. The lessons range round objects, the conversations are afterwards supplemented by grammar, and then come a number of other features.

Half a dozen clever illustra tions add to the attractiveness of an already interesting book. Edited (Mac-Marchand D'Allumettes. Par by Cloudesley Brereton. millan and Co. 2s.) The story which has won high honours in France is entertaining, and it is only one of the many features of this useful book. The editor has contributed a short introduction, valuable notes, a list of irregular verbs, a vocabulary, words and phrases for viva voce drill, sentences on syntax and idioms for viva voce practice and passages for translation into French. We have to add only that the volume belongs to Siepmann's French Series, which should be now sufficient guarantee for its excellence in all re spects. A. Gennevraye. pp. viii + I28. Materials for French Prose Composition. By Dr. Emil Otto. Fifth Edition. Revised by C. Talbut Onions, M.A. pp. vii + I93. (London: David Nutt; Dulau and Co; Sampson Low, Marston and Co. 2s. 6d.)
