Excerpt from McGuffey's Newly Revised Eclectic Third Reader: Containing Selections in Prose and Poetry, With Rules for Reading, and Exercises in Articulation, Defining, Etc
To those who may have used the Readers intended to precede the present work, little need be said in exp... lanation of the method pursued in the arrangement of this volume. It only carries out still further the principles on which they were composed, and which will be found to characterize the Fourth Reader.
In making his selections, the Compiler has drawn from the purest fountains of English literature, and has aimed to combine simplicity with sense, elegance with simplicity, and piety with both, so far as these qualities can be combined with that which is transferable to a printed page.
For the copious extracts made from the Sacred Scriptures, he makes no apology. Indeed, upon a review of the work, he is not sure but an apology may be due for his not having still more liberally transferred to his pages, the chaste simplicity, the thrilling pathos, the living descriptions, and the matchless sublimity of the sacred writings.
