The Globe Readers
Book 4

The Globe Readers. Book IV. Compiled and Edited by Alexander F. Murison, Sometime English Master at Aberdeen Grammar School (1884)


In Book IV. the more purely literary passages are alternated with lessons on parts of one of the most commonly studied branches of easy science, as well as on historical, social, industrial, and other subjects. The lessons in Physical Geography illustrate at some length certain of the chief phenomena capable of being readily apprehended at this stage of instruction. They are not intended to supersede, but to accompany and to supplement at important points, a regular Primer on the subject. The historical lessons, which are confined to the period of English History before the Norman Conquest, are in like manner intended to illustrate the leading events of that time. The poetical Pieces carry their own recommendation, especially the longer ballads. They almost uniformly illustrate the subjects of the prose passages beside them.

Spelling lists, explanatory notes, hints for exercises, &c., have been added, as in the earlier Books. The derivations will form an easy introduction to the study of the composition of part of our vocabulary.
