■who turns the leaves of this unique book, whether they belong to the Empire
State or to some other part of our broad country. The book is full of unex-
pressed State pride, and the school children of New York will feel richer ia
their State inheritance after their study of this concentrated record of the
facts, resources, and history of a State always justly proud of its past and
present. * ♦ * It is a credit not only to Publisher Bardeen's enterprise
but to his love for his State and his recognition of the grade and quality of
his State constituents, that he has seen and felt the occasion to bring out a
book of this nature."

OPINIONS OF BARDEEN S GEOGRAPHY OF THE EMPIRE STATE

" An effort in the right directiou."— T'/i*' Nation.

" Contains all the information that is likely to be desired by teacher or
pupil."— J' /^e Critic.

"There are numerous illustrations, many of which are vv^ell chosen and
well produced." — Science.

" I am delighted with it. It is brimful of helpful suggestions."— Prin-
cipal M. A. Taft, Mattituck, N. Y.

"Mr. Bardeen issues some splendid books, and this is one of them. It
is well arranged, edited, and printed, and the schools of New York are to
be congratulated on having so good a g^o^vA'^h.y.'''— Penman's Art Journal.

" I have just finished reading your Geography of the Empire State, and
I am heartily pleased with it. I never realized that there were so many
places and things of interest and importance in this State." — Frank L.
Miller, School Commissioner, Schuyler Co., N. Y.

"Bardeen's Geography of the Empire State meets a long-felt want. It
is just what we need to prepare for regents geography. The arrangement
of the subject matter is up to date. Our students are more than well-
pleased with it."— Principal James M. Grimes, Mount Vernon, N. Y.

"Received the Geography of the Empire State, and have read every
word of it. It is deeply interesting to me. * * * i think every one who
claims to be intelligent should make the book a study. Now we can have
it, it seems a necessity. Every pupil of the public school should be re-
quired to master this book somewhere in his course." — C. Ayer, Clifton
Springs, N. Y.

" Local geography is deservedly taking a high rank in school studies.
The regents make a separate requirement of geography and history of New
York State. No better text-book can be found to give the desired inform-
ation than Bardeen's Geography of the Empire State. Its illustrations and
text combine to give the student a very excellent idea of what New York
State really is."— C^as. T. Andrews, !l, April, 1890, to June, 1891, 8vo., pp. 163 ;
