A KEY TO THE EXERCISES, in a separate volume. 75 cents. "NEW METIIOD OF LEARNING THE FRENCH LANGUAGE.-This Grammar must 81. persede all oties now used for instruction in the French language. Its conception and Arrangement are admirable,-the work evidently of a mind familiar with the deficiencies of the systems, tive place of which it is designed to supply. In all the works of the kind that have fallen under our notice, there has been so much left unexplainei or obscuro, did so many things hike been omitted-trifles, perhaps, in the estimation of the author, but the cause of great e harrassment to the learner—that they have been comparatively valueless as self-instructors. The student, deceived by their specious pretensions, has not proceeded far before he has felt himself in a condition similar to that of a mariner who should put out to sea without a compass to direct him. He has encountered difli. cnlty after difficulty, to which his Grammar afforded no clue; when, disappointed and discouraged, he has either abandoned the study in disgust, or if his means permitted, has resorted to a teacher to accomplish what it was not in his power to effect by the aid of his 'self-instructor.' “Ollendorff has passed his roller over the whole field of French instruction, and

the rugged inequalities formerly to be encountered, no longer discourage the learner. What were the difficulties of the language, are here mastered in succession; and the only sur. prise of the student, as he passes from lesson to lesson, is, that he meets none of these lions in the way.'

“The value of the work has been greatly enhanced by a careful revision, and the addition of an appendix containing matter essential to its completeness either as a book for the use of teachers or for self-instruction."-New-York Commercial Advertiser.

A KEY TO THE EXERCISES, in a separate volume. 75 cents. “Mr. Valde has taught practically Ollendorff's system for many years, and has bee stowed much thought and labor on the improvement of this edition. The longer les Bons have been judiciously subdivided; much attention has been bestowed upon the arrangement of the exercises relating to the subjunctive mood: besides the system of pronunciation, we have an excellent grammatical synopsis, which appears to us, ons brief oxamination, very happily constructed and of great value. In his preface the an. thor mentions several minute corrections made in this edition, which show the care and accuracy bestowed upon it."-Churchman. u MESSRS. D. APPLETON & Co.: “ Gentlemen,

“I have carefully perused your new edition of Ollendorff by Mr. Value, and find It contains all the improvements the original work so much required. It is evidently the result of long research, time, and labor, founded upon experience and a thorough knowledge of the system, and in my estimation far superior o any work of the kind which I have yet met with. I intend adopting the use of it in my classes.

* Yours, respectfully,

“J. ROEMER, " Professor of the French Language in the N. Y. Free Academy.'
