This work has been prepared for the purpose of bringing within the reach of all, the important matter of History and Geography in a condensed form, and illustrated in such a manner as to make clear and lasting impressions on the mind of the Scholar, and serve as an incentive to study. This study has been sadly neglected, not because of its unimportance, but from the long, dry, and tedious manner in which it has been presented. The wood cuts which usually accompany Histories, generally give a very imperfect idea of the scene intended to be represented.
Accompanying this work are Stereoscopic Views taken from the object itself, showing nature and art as they actually exist, and as they would appear if seen with the naked eye.
This History, Stereoscope, and Views, will be furnished in Sets. The Views that are sent to a Township all differ, and by changing, from time to time, each district can have the benefit of the whole number. In the back part of the Book will be found a list of headings, giving the page and division of the catalogue under which will be found the title and number corres ponding with that on the View. When a view is furnished that is not embodied in the catalogue, figures will be set on the face side of the View, denoting the page in the History, except when a sufficient description is printed on the back of the view.
The History can be used with great success with but a single copy in the School, by giving each scholar in the class so much time for the study. When more are required they can be obtained of Agents, or by ordering: All orders in the Northwest must be sent to
