    Excerpt from The World in the Stereoscope: A Series of Sketches, Original and Selected This book, with the illustrative apparatus accompanying it, aims to secure a new educational advantage by introducing into the school-room the systematic use of one of our most important and popular inventions. It is not intended to displace other school studies, but to increase their interest and usefulness. The book contains a large number of geographical descriptions which increase the interest in that study, especially as they are accompanied with picturesque and accurate views of the places described. The volume includes sketches of some of the most famous scenes of history, explaining photographs which, of themselves, would be attractive; thus it can readily be used to create more vivid ideas of historical places and events; yet it is not a mere dry chronicle of names and dates. Though it is not a mere school reader, perhaps its most profitable use will be found in the reading classes. Competent teachers will appreciate the difficulty of teaching pupils to read naturally and correctly those selections which are read merely for the sake of reading. It is a great gain to have the scholar interested in what he reads. The heavy, lifeless pronunciation of each word separately, without natural inflection, emphasis or connection, can be met best by arousing a new interest in the passage, thus making it something more than a mere collection of sentences to be pronounced correctly. This interest can not be more easily and fully awakened than by putting before the eye the very scenes, the actual places described in the reading lesson. Successful teachers attempt to do this by verbal descriptions, by question and answer and remark. But it can be done much better by letting the scholar examine the actual appearance of every place described in his lesson. This is what these selections, with their accompanying stereoscopic views, afford the teacher an opportunity of doing.
