As a primary book for students in Spanish, this little volume seems to offer every facility, that can be desired. It is composed of short pieces, selected from the best Spanish writers, and calculated to develop the principles of the language gradually, and in a manner to lay a solid foundation for a mature knowledge of its more difficult forms.

The first object contemplated,' says Mr Sales, 'in making this compilation of Spanish extracts with English Explanations at the bottom of each piece, has been to render the knowledge of that language easy to the student, and the task of instructing less arduous to the teacher. The only requisité preparation to enable any one to translate this book will be, committing to memory the declensions of nouns and pronouns, the auxiliary and impersonal verbs in Josse's Spanish Grammar.

“ The second object of this compilation is, to facilitate the reading of Spanish by accenting every word, that can produce the least hesitation in the minds of learners, in regard to its proper pronunciation.

* The Spanish language is extremely easy to pronounce; all the letters are sounded, and the only difficulty that occurs to the student in reading is, to ascertain the place where to lay the accent. This difficulty, teachers well know to their great vexation, is increased by the careless manner in which Spanish imported books are corrected.'

All that can be done to remove this obstacle, has been accomplished by Mr Sales in this book. He has presented distinctly the few simple rules of pronunciation, and bestowed unwearied pains in giving accuracy to the mechapical part of the accents. This kind of labor, as he observes,' does not produce to him who performs it an honor corresponding with its wearisomeness, but it will not be the less useful in aiding the study of the Spanish, and it will be fully estimated by those for whom it was intended. The volume may be safely recommended as the best, which can now be obtained in our bookstores, for the primary lessons in the Spanish language.
