The New Serial for Self-Education.






(To be completed in 36 Monthly Parts.)

Nos. 1 to 7 now ready, price ld. each ;' and Parts 1. 8. II., price 6d. each.

With Part I. is presented a valuable Chart of thc History of the

World, printed in colours ; with Part III. will be preented a
Comprehensive Chart illustrating the Intellectual and Material
Progress of the World.

Recognising the progressive spirit of the age, and the demand that cxists for carefully prepared literature suited to the wants of selfeducators, WARN, Lock, & Co. have prepared a Serial Work of an exhaustive character, under the above title. It will be a complete Encyclopædia of Learning, meeting the requirements of Students of all classes, and characterised by such features as will, the Publishers con. fidently believe, give it a marked superiority over every similar undertaking. The comprehensiveness of its plan, the thorough execution of its details, the number of its illustrations, the convenience of its size, and the cheapness of its price, cannot fail to secure for it a prominent position. The subjects treated of in the “Universal Instructor” will cover the whole field of knowledge. They will extend from the most elementary to the most advanced branches of education, and, taken together, will form a perfect system of intellectual culture. The writers will be found in every way qualified to impart instruction on the topics with which they deal; and in nothing, the Publishers feel much satisfaction in pointing out, will the “. Universal Instructor” be more conspicuous than in the tried ability of its educational staff.

The Athenarm of Nov. 6th, 1880, says :—"The work is excellent, and it is to be hoped it may meet with the popularity it deserves.".

K Prospectuses of the above will be sent by the Publishers, post free, in any quantities
