Ex-seminary library. Light tone, light wear, bookplate. Solid hardcover. ; "Mr Howe, in this work, has accordingly made his course a spiral one, ascending from a first cycle of lessons treating the four aspects of nature - 1, stars and earth; 2, minerals and rocks; 3, plants; 4, animals - to a second, third and fourth cycle, each adapted to a more advanced class of pupils. ... His happy selection of objects in the four fields of nature study here introduced insures the constant interest of the pupil; but the most valuable feature of the book is the detailed hints and directions to the teacher and pupil that will secure correct and accurate habits of scientific observation." - William T Harris, series Editor's Introduction. ; International Education Series; Ex-Library; 326+10 ad pages.
