The American Educational Series. Hundreds of Districts throughout the Northwest have, within the past few years, adopted the most or all of these books, and their introduction and use have repaid tenfold their cost in securing uniformity in the use of the best books published.

Andrew's Ceology. An Elementary Geology, designed especially for the Interior States, by E. B. ANDREWS, LL. D., of the Ohio Geological Corps, and late Professor of Geology in Marietta College. 12mo., cloth, 283 pp., 432 Illustrations.
The distinctive feature of this work is its limitations. It is designed for students and readers of the Interior States, and, consequently, for such has its chier references to home Geology. By thus limiting the scope of the work, it is believed that a much better book for beginners may be made than if far more were attempted. ECLECTIC SERIES - Natural Sciences.

The Heliotype procefs, by which the se pictures are prep red. is, for this purpose, greatly superior to all other photographic processer. The Heliotyve is an exact fac-simile of the engraving; and the soft tunes of light and sbade, which by this proct 8. i: is possible to produce, give it an imme se advantage over all ordinary photographs. The pictures are printed directly from the negative on 'he paper, aus ihreby the warpiug" which takes place in mounted photographe is avoided. The collection represented by ihese Peliotypes contains the choicest and most costly proofs of many of the best engravers of ihe world, and is especially rich in the original works of Albert Durer, Rembrandt, Blake, Marc Antonio, Van Leyden, Caracci, and others. Ii comprises the best engraving of Raphael Morghen, Torchi Anderloni, Mulier. Wille, Desnoyers, Mandel, Strange, Sharpe, Woolleti, and other leading engravers, from the pictures of Rapbael, Titien, Correggio, Guido, Leoonrdo da Vinci, Murillo, and other celebrated artiets.
It is evident that thus all who desire it are enabled to obtaid faithiol and artistic reproductions from the choicest od most costly works of art at ibe lowast pos-ihle prices.
