BOOKS BY CHARLES A. McMURRY



Excursions and Lessons in Home Geography

The material provided in this book constitutes the introductory lessons in geography for the
third and fourth grades. It is the geography of the home and the neighborhood. The
illustrations are taken from many different localities and are typical of various parts of
the country.

Type Studies from the Geography of the United States

Type Studies is designed to illustrate in some detail the second stage of geography study,
following Excursions and Lessons. The purpose of the simple type studies given is to
introduce children to the geography of our own country. This volume also is appropriately
illustrated.



Larger Types of American Geography

Cloth, I2mo, $.75 net

The six large units worked out with some fullness of detail in this volume furnish the broad
and comprehensive framework within which to combine and arrange the lesser topics
previously studied. It is the purpose of the present book to organize these earlier studies
into more comprehensive units and at the same time to bring into view the few commanding
types which give a good survey of American geography as a whole. Physiography and
industrial topics are both strongly represented in the types selected.



Special Method in Geography

Cloth, l2mo, $.70 net

Special Method in Geography covers the whole course of geographical study from the third
through the eighth grade. The characteristic points to be noted throughout this volume are :
The gradual movement from the home outward ; the strong concentration of study, first upon
North America and second upon Europe, and the selection of types as centers for the
organization of materials.



Teachers are invited to send for a circular containing full list and
descriptive matter of Dr. McMurry's books on method.
