Preface.

This volume forms the Third of “ The Progressive Reading Books” in Nelson's School Series. Teachers will find it better adapted for the purposes of instruction, and at the same time more attractive to young people, than most of the Reading Books in common use.

The pieces have been selected chiefly from the best writers of the present day, and possess a freshness and interest hitherto wanting in similar Works.

A companion volume, designed for Advanced Classes, is in preparation. In it will be completed the Series of Lessons begun in the present volume under the title of “ Round the World.” Each, however, is complete in itself, and may be used separately.

August, 1862.

These Maps form part of a Large NEW ATLAS OF THE World in pre

paration by T. Nelson and Sons, and in regard to which the following among many other testimonies have already been received by the Publishers :

From the REV. CANON MOSELY. "I have seen enough of these Maps to feel assured that you have introduced a great improvement in Map making for popular and educational purposes. The plan of squares of hundreds and thousands of miles cannot but commend itself to general approval, for the facilities which it affords of estimating at sight the distances of places from one another, and the superficial measurement of different portions of the carth's surface.”

From SIR JOHN HERSCHEL. "I have seldom or never seen Maps more beautifully executed. The idea of dividing each Map into squares of a hundred and a thousand English miles, and of inserting circles indicating the distances from London, is a happy and useful one for popular Maps." From SIR RODERICK MURCHISON'S ADDRESS before the Royal

Geographical Society. "Nelson's Atlas, of which one portion has been published, is an excellent and carefully executed work, of that class which reflects so much credit on our Scottish Geographers, and is an evidence of the great and increasing interest taken by the public in Geography. This Atlas gives the distances and measurements in English miles."
