BOOK-KEEPING BY SINGLE ENTRY.
This system of Book-keeping consists of Five Books, (the Day Book,
Invoice Book, Cash Book, Ledger, and Bought Ledger,) which con-
tain the transactions of a Merchant's or Tradesman's Establishment
for one Month.

They are a fac-simile of Books of Real Business.

At the close of the Bought Ledger is exhibited the mode of pre-
paring the Balance Sheet; and showing with clearness the amount
of profit, and the state of the supposed concern: the advantage of
the Pupil having a written instead of a printed copy, will be
obvious. Price 10s, the Set.

BOOK-KEEPING BY DOUBLE ENTRY.
A Set of Accounts similar to the above, in Six Books, namely,
Waste or Day Book, Journal, Ledger, Invoice Book, Cash
Book and Bill Book, with a familiar Treatise on Book-keeping.
This work will be found to possess advantages over every other
system yet submitted to the Public.

The compiler has consulted the numerous publications which have
recently appeared on this subject, while his practical acquaintance
with extensive Mercantile Establishments, has enabled him to offer
to the profession a work at once simple in its principles and accurate
in its results.

The style of Penmanship has undergone considerable improvement, and the work is now submitted with full confidence that nothing has ever emanated from the press so calculated to advance the pupil in this particular department of his studies. Price 10s. the Set.

BOOK-KEEPING FOR FARMERS.

A Set of Accounts similar to the above, in Three Books.
The above are engraved in the finest style of Commercial Penman-
ship. They are intended for the use of Pupils destined for Agricul-
tural pursuits, and will be found eminently qualified to assist the

FRENCH PHRASEOLOGY, IDIOMS AND SYNONYMY. Designed as a Vocabulary or Phrase Book for those who have already made some progress in the Language.

BY HENRY STEIN TURRELL,

EDITOR OF

LEÇONS FRANÇAISES,

DE LITTERATURE

ET DE MORALE, EN PROSE ET EN VERS.

AND LATE HEAD MASTER OF

THE BRIGHTON PROPRIETARY GRAMMAR SCHOOL.

"A very useful book."-Athenæum.

EXTRACT FROM PREFACE.

"The aim of this Work is to remove the greatest difficulty which students have now to encounter in the acquisition of the French language, by enabling them to apply the right French word in the translation of such English terms as vary in signification.

"In addition to this, it will do much towards classifying and arranging the knowledge gained-an object altogether disregarded in the ordinary dialogue books. By thus assisting, strengthening, and storing the memory, and at the same time cultivating habits of discrimination and appreciation of the force of terms, it will greatly facilitate the acquirement of correct French.

"The Phrases which compose the book have been selected with reference to their frequency of recurrence in ordinary conversational language; the Author deeming these of more value to the student than those which prevail in books, and which usually form the staple of instruction in the French language; consequently, although he has been anxious to avoid vulgarisms, a few sentences may appear somewhat familiar and unrefined-their French equivalents, however, are not liable to the same objection.

"It is presented to the Public with confidence in its merits, derived from several years' experience."

The plan which the Author has adopted to familiarize the Pupil with the Synonyms and Phraseology of the French language, will perhaps be best understood from the following Exercises, reprinted from the book:

THE

ART OF LAND SURVEYING,

EXPLAINED BY SHORT AND EASY RULES. BY JOHN QUESTED, SURVEYOR.

Illustrated by 153 Diagrams, engraved on Wood.

EXTRACT FROM PREFACE.

"There are several Treatises extant on Land Surveying, all more or less calculated to instruct the pupil, so as to render him a complete Professional Surveyor. With these works I am not entering into competition; my sole object is to produce a few pages, which, being placed in the hands of School Boys, who are to follow the business of Farmers, may give them such a knowledge of surveying, as will enable them to do all that is needful in that art, on the Farm.

"I have repeatedly noticed, that when Boys at School have been required to learn Land Measuring, for facilities in farming, large works, containing hundreds of pages, have been placed in their hands, the chief portion of which is devoted to geometry, and the construction and calculation of abstruse figures, never likely to be required by the class of pupils for whom I am now writing. Far be it from me to limit the acquirement of knowledge, or to say that such acquaintance with geometry is useless; I merely contend that a more simple method, and one divested of those intricate problems necessary to pupils destined to follow surveying as a profession, may save much time and expense, and yet give a sufficient knowledge of the art for the farmer or steward. For this purpose I confine my geometrical figures to a very few pages, reserving explanations of such others as may occur in the course of the work, to the examples as they follow. My object will be to conduct the pupil by the simplest methods to the attainment required. My language shall be plain and easily to be understood; and if at times it may appear that I dwell too long on minor points, at least what may be thus deemed by the professional man, and him who is already practically acquainted with the study, I would beg again to remind him that it is for the Farmer I write, and that to him these minor points are the most useful."
