    himself retains he has constantly aimed at pointing out geographical laws and at giving learners glimpses into the terrestrial machinery When published these geographies were such a radical departure from the old methods that many teachers were not prepared to accept them but leading educators have gradually come to Maury s position and to day the principles that he advocated are endorsed by the Committee of Fifteen of the National Educational Association The special features to which attention is called are 1st The Home the Center of Thought The study of the world is begun at the home of the pupil and other countries and places are presented in their relation to it 2d The Earth as a Unit In the first thirty pages the earth is presented as a unit and in the pages that follow this conception of it is at all times kept before the pupil The continents are then taken up more fully and after the pupil is familiar with the details of each continent a review is given which leads him to look at the continent as a whole and in its relation to the earth as a unit 3d Relief Maps Political maps teach the names of political divisions of mountains rivers etc all of which are purely arbitrary After these names are learned relief maps follow These picture to the eye the physical features of the continents By locating upon the relief map those features with which he is already familiar the pupil can see the physical reasons for many of the facts that he has learned If preparatory oral lessons are given the relief map should then be used first 4th The Earth as the Home of Man The idea of the earth as the home of man is the chief thought of the book The full page colored illustrations serve to accentuate this thought by giving vivid pictures of the people of each continent and of the homes in which they live 5th The Lessons Each lesson presents interesting facts in the form of a story to be read by the pupil The teacher may talk with her class about each lesson and may ask her own questions to develop thought and fix important facts in the child s mind 6th Illustrations The illustrations are all from photographs and are accurate Each picture teaches some definite idea and the descriptive text under many of them makes the pictures an integral part of the lessons The colored relief maps are used by permission of Mr C L Patton who designed them and who also selected the new illustrations and planned the course of instruction which they embody We take pleasure also in acknowledging the valuable suggestions received from several distinguished educators and in thanking our correspondents in all the leading countries of the world who have furnished many of the photographs that appear in this volume CONTENTS Page INTRODUCTORY LESSONS 3 Direction 4 Distance 5 The Earth 8 The Land 10 The
