Greenleaf, Benjamin  
A Key to the National Arithmetic
 Picture
Publisher: Robert S. Davis, 1848 Boston, MA.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Exhibiting the Operation of the More Difficult Questions in that Work; For the Use of Teachers Only." "The object of this author, in this publication, is to aid the teacher in communicating his instructions to his pupils, and enable him the more readily to detect any error which they may have made in the operation of their questions. Every instructor, who has a large number of scholars under his care, is aware that it is a great tax on his time, especially when in school, to examine the operation of many questions of his students; whereas, by the aid of a Key, he may be able, in a few moments, to detect any mistake in the operation. Besides, in the hurry of business, t is often very difficult for the most able arithmetician to recollect, at the moment, all the principles by which some difficult questions are performed; but, by recurring to a Key, his difficulty will be obviated. The author would recommend the following maxim to every teacher: - Never give a pupil a direct answer to any questions he may propose respecting the solution of a problem, nor perform the labor for him, but suggest such principles as will enable him to perform the question himself. The answers to all the questions are inserted in the Key, mainly for the accommodation of those teachers who may prefer to use copies of the Arithmetic in which the answers are not contained." 203 pages + 8 pages of advertisements for books by the publisher. Book is in GOOD or better condition. No dust jacket.

Appr.: | AUD 31.65 CAD 31.06 EUR 22.03 GBP 16.13 JPY 2,500.00 MXN 312.50 ZAR 277.78

Mangnall, Richmal  
Historical and Miscellaneous Questions

Publisher: D. Appleton & Co. New York 1874.
Green pebbled cloth with black overlay spine, gilt spine titles and blind embossed decoration. 396 + (12) [ads] pages, some small woodcuts illustrating heraldry. An odd topic for an 'American Edition' of this popular British school text, but perhaps they were reluctant to relinquish attachemnt to 'the colonies.' At any rate, subjects range widely in this little tome, from astronomy to 'heathen' mythology, English, Scottish, and French reigns, American history from its discovery to present, architecture, Greek history, Latin words and phrases. Wear at spine edges with chip at foot of spine, covers otherwise show little wear. Previous owner's name in school-girl Spencerian hand in oak gall ink on free endpaper. Advertising endpapers have penciled notes and name. All else clean and tight. Very little here that the average college graduate could answer these days! A real charmer!
