From J. W. BULKLEY, Sup't of Schools, City of Brooklyn. "Immediately on the publication of Cornells Primary Geography, I gave the work a careful examination, and was much pleased with the result; but before giving an opinion of the book, determined to test the same in the class-room. This trial was 80 successful, that 200 copies were ordered, and four classes-two each, in the Male and Female Departments-took the book in hand.
“ This course was also pursued with the Intermediate, and the result was equally satisfactory. It is the uniform testimony of our teachers, that these books are much superior to any we have used; that the beauty and escollency of the system has been more and more developed in passing through the books, and that a new interest bas been awakened in the minds of the pupils.
“The Primary is what its name indicates. In it the foundation is well laid, and so much of the elements of the science as pertains to that, and that alone, is well arranged and clearly developed.
“ The Intermediate, also, occupies its appropriate ground. Here the samo systematic order prevails--one thing al & time, and that in its natural order.
“The Maps are clear, well-drawn, and finely illustrative of the text; containing all that is necessary for this purpose, and only that. These are, emphatically, books of instruction, not of reference. Here, the mind of the popil is not constantly turned to the consideration of irrelevant matter, or foreigo subjects, which require volumes to unfold, ibut to a regular, eystomatic, and progressive development of one subject
" The Illustrations are remarkable for their artistic beauty, as well as instruction, by reference to the text. For theso, and other reasons, we consider these books as greatly superior to any others we bave ever seen. I can only add, that ibe use of the books in our schools bas been very satisfactory, and that our teachers aro unanimous with me in the bigh estimate I place upon them."
