Excerpt from Harper's Story Books: A Series of Narratives, Dialogues, Biographies, and Tales, for the Instruction and Entertainment of the Young
This series of Story Books, though they are interided to be written in a simple and lucid style, so as to bring them within the com... prehension of 'all, are by no means designed exclusively for children. The subjects of many of them will be such that they can only be appreciated by minds that have attained to some de gree of maturity, and. Are accustomed to habits of careful and pa tient thought.
The subject of the present number, the great Printing Estab lishment of the Harpers in New York, is one of this class; and though I have endeavored to make my description sufficiently full in its character, and simple in its details, to be intelligible to every classof readers, I have made no attempt to bring it down to the capacity of children. The older and the more thoughtful of the sons and daughters of a family may derive great instruction from the perusal of it, especially if they are assisted by the explanations of the father and. Mother as they read, but the younger ones must expect to find it above their reach. They had their turn in the Story of Timboo and Fanny.
