“‘The World’s Ready Reckoner and Rapid Calculator.’

Books intended to take the place of mental facilities may be needed by some persons, but they are not necessary, and it is far better that the intensely stupid should go through life in the densest ignorance than that those of mediocre intelligence should be dwarfed by the inaction consequent upon the possession of a book like ‘The World’s Ready Reckoner and Rapid Calculator.’ Computing prices is a new matter of consulting columns and lines to one provided with this work, which, in addition to these enlargened multiplication tables, also contains some business forms, tables of measurement and of wages and many other things intended to supersede a knowledge of arithmetic. [‘The World’s Ready Reckoner and Lightning Calculator.’ Chicago: Laird & Lee.]”
