Copyright, 1858, 1863, 1877, by Daniel W. Fish. Printed by PREFACE. IN the preparation of this work, a special object has been N , kept in view by the author, namely: to furnish a small and simple class-book for beginners, which shall contain no more of theory than is necessary for the illustration and application of the elementary principles of written arithmetic, applied to numerous, easy and practical examples, and which shall be introductory to a full and complete treatise on this subject. This book is not to be regarded as a necessary part of the Arithmetical Series by the same author, as the four books already composing that Series are believed to be properly and scientifically graded, and eminently adapted to general use ; but this work has been prepared to meet a limited demand, in large graded schools, and in the public schools of New York, and similar cities, where a large number of pupils often obtain but a limited knowledge of arithmetic, and wish to commence its study quite young ; and it is also designed for those who desire a larger number of simple and easy exercises for the slate and blackboard than are usually found in a complete work on written arithmetic, so that the beginner may acquire facility, promptness, and accuracy in the application and operations of the fundamental principles of this science.
