III. An Analytical and Practical French Grammar. 12mo, 554 pages, $1.50.

This work contains a complete system for learning to read, write, and speak the language. The practical part consists of oral exercises in the form of questions, which the teacher asks of the pupil, who is to answer them directly in French. This method insures fluency of utterance and correct pronunciation, and exercises the pupil in speaking French from the beginning.

The theoretical part of the work comprises the whole grammar in fifty-four lessons, accompanied by English exercises to be translated into French. The development of the different elements is in harmony with the logical construction of sentences.

Three lessons are devoted to Etymology, treating of words derived from the Latin and common to both French and English. This is an interesting part of the work.

Six lessons have been added, giving subjects for composition; containing some of the principal idioms in the language.

This work is the most complete text-book of French published in this country.
