IN bringing out the first of an entirely new series of. Phono graphic instruction-books, chiefly intended for schools, but adapted, at the same time, to popular instruction and private study, there will be a just expectation, on the part of the pub lic, that we should give some preliminary account of the objects we have had in view, and of the means by which we have sought to attain them.

The invention of Phonography (or, more properly, of Stem phonography) is due to the genius of Isaac Pitman, of Bath, England, whose name it will inevitably place among the most eminent of those whom posterity will honor as the benefactors of mankind. Hardly more merit is to be attributed to him for the brilliant conception of the plan, than for the skill and nu wearying patience with which he has labored so successfully during more than ten years to perfect its details. It was un avoidable, however, that the art should labor during a while under the disadvantages of youth. There must be a period during which it had as yet discovered neither the full extent of its own powers, nor their just limitations, and during which it was therefore liable to the two opposite dangers of a partial and stinted development on the one hand, and of exaggerated and unwarrantable pretensions on the other.
