610 CHESNUT STREET, PHILADELPHIA. The Works embraced in this Catalogue, the publishers trust may find their way into the hands of every family in this country. The greatest care has been taken, that while they should be eminently instructive, interesting, and some of them even amusing, they should contain nothing in any manner the least injurious in their tendency, or censurable in their character. At this time, when our country has become satiated with a class of literature that aims at the virtuous foundations of the human mind, the intelligent reader and the thinking parent will seek something of a more substantial and lasting character.

Any of our Publications not for sale in the reader's locality, will be sent to any person to any part of the United States or Canada, on their remitting the price of the work they may wish, to the Publishers, in a letter, free of postage or any other expense.
