XXI. BOOKS ON EDUCATION.

EDUCATIONAL NOMENCLATURE AND INDEX.

We have on our table a number of recent publications, and more in our Library, of older date, and of greater value, from the American, English, French, and German press, on the history, organization, administration, instruction, and discipline of schools of different kinds and grades, and on the principles and practice of education, to which we shall, from time to time, call the attention of our readers. In doing so, we propose not only to give the title-page and a brief description of the book or pamphlet, but, in most instances, if the publication is a valuable contribution to the literature of education, the CONTENTS; and, if the work consists of several numbers or volumes, an Index to the principal topics treated of.

These contents and indexes will ultimately be included in a volume to be entitled "EDUCATIONAL NOMENCLATURE AND INDEX; or an explanation of words and terms used in describing systems and institutions of education, in different countries, with reference to books and pamphlets where the principal subjects connected with the organization, administration, instruction, and discipline of schools are discussed."

This volume will include an INDEX to the principal educational periodicals and official reports of Superintendents of public schools in this country. There is a vast amount of information as to the past history and present condition of schools, public and private, elementary and superior, general and special, as well as of able discussions of the principles and practice of education, scattered through occasional addresses, school periodicals, legislative and departmental reports and documents, which are not available to persons engaged in educational investigations, from their not having access to those publications, or not knowing any reliable and convenient source of information respecting their contents.

As an example of the thoroughness with which the most important publications on the subject of education and schools will be analyzed and indexed, we publish in this place an Index to the twenty-six volumes of Proceedings and Lectures of the American Institute of Instruction, which was originally prepared for the purpose of exhibiting the usefulness of that Association in the variety of educational subjects and topics presented and discussed by eminent teachers and writers at its annual meetings since 1830.

We shall give an Index to the five volumes of the American Journal of Education, from 1826 to 1830, and the nine volumes of the American Annals of Education, from 1831 to 1839, in an early number; also, to the fourteen volumes of the Massachusetts Common School Journal; and, to the Educational Statistics of the American Almanac.

INDEX to the Subject of each Lecture, the Name of the Lecturer, and the principal Topics discussed in the Proceedings and Lectures of the American Institute of Instruction, from 1830 to 1855-26 vols.

N. B. As the Volumes are not numbered in the order of their publication, the reference is made to the YEAR in which the annual meeting was held. The names of the Lecturers are printed in small capitals.
