PREFACE.

The object of this Book is to secure throughout a large School a certain amount of useful knowledge, under important heads, being learned by heart and engrained on the memory by frequent repetition. Masters of Forms will regard the facts of the Manual as merely points from which to open out into more copious instruction by word of mouth. A dry text book well learned by heart, with a good teacher to quicken its facts by lively illustration or well-applied explanation, often promotes School purposes better than fuller treatises, whose very merits make the master pause before he ventures to add to them, whereas boys seldom learn more rapidly or more pleasantly than from the oral teaching of an animated master who knows his work and understands his class.
