There is a fascination in the very arrangement of the figures; in fact, it is an amusing as well as a most useful study, and we strongly recommend the Chain-Rule as arranged and applied by Mr. Schonberg."-Lit.

This little book, intended to assist those ladies and gentlemen who, after having left school, are desirous of being able to converse in French, and the tutors and governesses who wish to teach it, will, it is presumed, be found very desirable; as, while the original work supplies them with a large stock of English words and phrases of daily use in familiar conversation, the key to it gives them the correct translation of the same into French, thereby showing them which is the proper expression for every topic of life.
