About this object

Arithmetic, since was first published, has been modified, and many additions have been made. In the Preface, J. W. Natal wrote:" I have taken the opportunity .... to insert some additional pages on the Metric System of Weights and Measures, the principles of which, by a rule of the Council of Education in force in 1872, were required to be taught to all children of Standard V. and VI. in schools under the control of the Government. The rule in question has, however, been since rescinded, as requiring too much from elementary schools, while the use of the Metric system has not yet been rendered compulsory by Act of Parliament. But the general adoption of the System in England is only is seems plain, a question of time. London: December 24, 1874"
On the flyleaf of the book there is the signature of the owner, "E. J. Marsh, Bridge Hotel, Cromwell, 27th Sept 1880." and "B'burn library".
