THE AMERICAN III! INDEX AND AMÜALS, COMPLETE IN 24 VOLUMES, IS - the host comrasiVE, THE HOST SY5TEKAT1C. the kost immm, THE K3ST PRACTICAL Work of the kind ever published. Read what Professors Frieze and Wincliell say of Appleton's American Cyclopedia. Univehsity of Michigan, August 29, 1883. f The American Cyclopedia published by the Messrs. Appleton is fully deservingof its name; the articles tiiat make up its contents being In general peculiarly adapted to the wants of American readers and as comprehensiva aud complete as could possibly bc expected in a work of tliis kind. Constant use of tliis admirable work f or several montlispast has convinced me that it is decidedly superior to auy other hitlierto published In tliis country; and that it sliould have a place in every private as well as public library. Henuy S. Frieze. University of MicniQAN, ) Chair of Geology and Paleontology, Ann Arbor, Aug. 31, 1883. ) I have owned a copy of Appleton's New Cyclopedia ever since its tirst publication, and have used It daily. In my scientific pursuits it has añbrded me rauch aid especially in the line of biography and history. But it seems to me specially suited for the more general uses of au intelligent faniily. I have found my wife and daughters very frequently resorting to the Cyclopedia for precise inforiuation about soine personage in literature or history or art, and have often done the same niyself. Whatever otlier sou rees of Information may be aCcessible, the Cyclopedia is always most accessible, for every subject stands in a fixed alphabctical position, found in an instant. Without failing to appreciate the value of Appleton's Cyclopedia to one engaged in scienlilic pursuits, I think it especially adapted to faniily use; and I believe 110 more efficiënt impulse could be given to the education of a faniily and to the promotion of' its general intelligence, than to place the volumes of tuis Cyclopedia where they can be constantly and conveniently consulted. My convictions on this point are so strong and so clear that I venture to say that a set of this Cyclopedia would, if used as it might be, quite doublé the value of every year's instruction at school. I speak expressly of Appleton's Cyclopedia because it is full enough to give satisfaction on every subject and not too profound for average good intelligence; while the same cannot be said of any other Cyclopcdic publication which I know in the English language. Alexander Winchell, Prof. of Geology and Paleontology. J. H. Slipper is the general manager for this and adjoining county.

Read what Prof. Putnam of the State Normal School bas to say about Appleton's Great Cyclopedia. He has liad it in his family for years. He knows what a book is, and you known the man, therefore we say read: State Normal Sciiool. ) Ypsilanti, Aug. 14, 1883. ) I have had in my library for several years Appleton's American Cyclopedia. For Americans and American students it is, in my judgment, better than any other woik of the kind. It is In a very wide use of the term, a complete library lin itself and supplies a most convenient and complete introduction to the whole field of geography, history, biography, literature, science and art. For the purpose of reference it is of more value than hundreds of volumes of individual books. Every family and every student and reader ought to have this work, Daniel Putnam, A. M., Professor of Principies of Teaching, State Normal School, Ypsilanti. I fully concur in the above. J. A. Watling, D. D. S., Professor of Dental Surgery in Michigan University. J.H.
