To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:
"Parker and Watson's Readers" were published in 1857 and even as late as 1911 the writer was told by teachers THE PIONEER PERIOD 15 that no better book of the kind was ever published than the old "Parker and Watson's National Fifth Reader. " What we have termed the Pioneer Period comes to a close in 1863. It was by no means an easy path. The young publisher had many difficulties to face and overcome, but his early training in what would be termed in these days a "puritanical household" stood hi...m in good stead, and his clear vision, his unbounded energy and above all his de- termination to publish only the best books, won for him and his company a high place in the esteem of the educators of that day, and prepared the way for larger usefulness in his chosen career. DEVELOPMENT AND ACCOMPLISHMENT: 1863-1890 Until a short time prior to his death in 1888 A. S. Barnes was the head and soul of the business. He became conversant with existing defects in the school books of the early days, he made educational text-books a practical study, and his plans for the future were based on the needs of the approaching advance in national education.
