REFERENCE BOOKS FOR TEACHERS' LIBRARIES.

Reference Books for Teachers' Libraries.

THE Superintendent of Public Schools in the City of Boston, in his report for 1852, makes the following remarks with relation to Books of Reference for Teachers :

66

'Teachers, like gentlemen in other professions, need a few suitable books of this class always at hand; for they cannot carry all the minute details of the different branches taught in schools in their minds always ready for use, any more than well-read Lawyers, Physicians, or Clergymen can respectively carry all their professional learning with them, ready to meet all emergencies. All persons who know where and how to look for such information as they want may be considered well educated, in the professional sense of the term.

"There is wanted in every Grammar School a collection of such works as would make, when all taken together, one Comprehensive Dictionary on the subjects connected with school studies. This Library of Books of Reference need not at first contain more than forty or fifty volumes, embracing such works as the American Enclycopædia, McCulloch's Geographical Dictionary, Brande's Dictionary of Science, Literature, and Art, Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities, with a Universal Biographical Dictionary, and a good Atlas of Ancient and of Modern Geography. These few books would render great assistance to the Teachers and the Scholars, in their respective labors."
