VYSE'S NEW LONDON The advantages that Warne's New SPELLINGS possess over all other Cheap

Editions of a similar class are, viz :1. The Editing ; everything being thoroughly revised and brought down to

1865. 2. The Woodcuts; all being new and used in these Books for the first time. 3 The Typography; a new type with a large face being used 4. The Paper, Printing, Binding; the superiority of which should at once

ensure the substitution of Warne's EDITIONS for those now in use.

THE STANDARD PRONOUNCING DICTIONARY

OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, Based on the Labours of WORCESTER, WEBSTER, OGILVIE, RICHARDSON, CRAIG,

GOODRICH, JOHNSON, WALKER, and other eminent Lexicographers. Comprising many Thousand New Words, which modern Literature, Science, Art,

and Fashion have called into existence, EDITED BY P. AUSTIN NUTTALL, LL.D. The great want that has hitherto existed of an English Dictionary, at once entitled to be regarded as a work of authority, comprehensive, and cheap, has induced the Publishers, regardless of a very great outlay, to make an attempt to supply this deficiency by issuing the STANDARD PRONOUNCING DICTIONARY of the ENGLISH LANGUAGE at a price without parallel in works of this class.

When it is considered that this volume is edited by an eminent lexicographer, that it embodies in its contents upwards of Twenty-two Thousand Words more than the very best of its contemporaries, and that it presents a rare specimen of typographical excellence, it is confidently expected that it will at once take rank as the cheapest and most popular Dictionary of the English Language that has yet claimed public approbation and support.

THE MANUAL OF DATES;

A DICTIONARY OF REFERENCE TO ALL THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENTS IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND TO BE

FOUND IN AUTHENTIC RECORDS.

With a

By GEORGE H. TOWNSEND.

carefully prepared Index and List of Authorities. Of all books of general reference, an authentic MANUAL OF DATES may be pronounced the most useful and important.

Most of such books, however, are found to be unsatisfactory, either from want of accuracy or from defective arrangement. Mr. Townsend has successfully avoided both these defects; he has devoted years of labour to obtain the most exact information possible, and he has adopted a very lucid method of classification throughout his work; the comprehensiveness of which is evident from the fact of its containing no less than 25,000 articles, each of them incorporating numerous dates.

The volume is printed in a new ruby type, and notwithstanding its copiousness—in which respect it surpasses all its predecessors-it will be found conveniently portable.

Bedford Street, Covent Garden.
