UXIVERSITT OF MlCHlGAH August 2'J, 1883. The American C.vclopedia published by the Messrs. Appleton is fully deserving of its name, the articles that make ut. its contents being in general peculiarly adapted to the wants of American reader, and as comprehensive and complete as could possibly be expected in a work of this kind. Constant use of this admirable work for several months past has convinced me that it is decidedly superior to any other hitherto publislied in this country, and tbat it should have a place in every private and public library. IIi'.nry S. Fkiezi:, Profs. o(' Lat. Language and Literatura, University of Michigan. Universitv of Michigan, Chair of Gkology and Paleontoi.ocv, Axflf Aküoi!, Mich., Aijg. 81, 188:J. I have owned a copy of Appleton's New Cyclopedia ever Hs first publication, tod have used it daily. In my scientific phrsuits it has aflbrded me inueh aid, especiljjlly in thelfhe of biogruphy aud histoiy. lint it seejc3 to me spooially snited for the more general ijsi' of :in intelligent family. I save ionnd my wlfe and daughters vety frequently resorting to the C'yclopedi fór precious nfoimation about some pefeönage literature or bistory or art, and líate oftcn done the saine inyself. Whatewfer other sources of Information may lsiccessible, the ('yclopedia isahvays nijjBt ccessible, for eveiy subject stands ia a'iixed alphabetical position, found ín aiflnstant. Without failinjj, tn appreciate the value of Appletón's Cvtijopedia to one engaged in scientJïic pursttB, I think it especially adapted to family me; and I bclieved no more eiiïcient impofee could be given to the education of afimily mul the promo tion of its generalfliiteiligence, than to place the volumes of Ljiis Cyclopediavvherc theyan be constan-fe' and conveiiiently consulted. Iy confction? on this polnt are so strong and so Sbar that I venture to say that a set of tli Cyclopedia vvould if used as It raight bL quite doublé the value of evcry ycar's Inprnction tit school. I speak expressly ol' A.pleton'ti Cyclopedia because it is fu eiiougli to give satisfactiou on every stflcct, and nol too profound for average j&nd intelligenee. while the same eannowbe said of any other Cyclopedia publtbatioii which 1 know in the English lanuage.
