I. BERTHA'S VISIT to her UNCLE in ENGLAND; com

prising a variety of interesting information for Young Persons. Arranged for every day in the year. A New Edition. 3 vols. small 8vo. 108. od. half bound.

“ We have seldom had occasion to notice a work more replete with amusing and diversified information, conveyed in an agreeable style, and adapted to juvenile minds. We are much mistaken if many are not allured to the acquisition of knowledge by a perusal of these volumes. We can recommend the work most earnestly to those who wish to place an interesting book in the hands of youth." Asiatic Journal.

“ It is with sincere pleasure that we have perused these volumes, which, with all the clearness and accuracy of Mrs. Marcet's justly celebrated conversations, have a familiarity and elementary simplicity about them that at once qualify them for, we had almost said, the exclusive perusal of more advanced children. No head of a family, we presume, will think of dispensing with this work, at least no one that is anxious to invigorate the minds of his children by communicating to them an early taste for the more valuable and profitable pursuits of the human understanding."-Monthly Review.

“ Pour les enfans dont l'esprit actif réclame de nouveaux alimens, la Visite de Bertha sera une mine précieuse où leur curiosité trouvera sans cesse de quoi se satisfaire-on annonce comme devant paraître incessamment une traduction de ce livre."-Révue Encyclopédique.

" Of all the little works contrived of late years for the purpose of conveying information to young folks in an attractive manner, this, we think, will prove by far the most successful.”—Monthly Magazine.

An admirable production of its class.”—Court Journal.

“ An interesting present for young people. The book is extremely cheap, only half-a-guinea for three volumes !”-Spectator.

A great variety of information is here pleasantly collected,” &c.--Literary Gazette.

XVII. A COMPANION to POPE'S HOMER and DRYDEN'S ÆNEID of VIRGIL, being an Explanation of the Mythology, History, and Geography, contained in those Works. With a copious Index. 8vo. 128.

“ This book will be found as useful to those who are unacquainted with the dead languages, as to those who are conversant with them; we are able to state confidently that it has been compiled with great care, and contains a great variety of valuable information."-Classical Journal.

The work is intended as a companion to Homer and Virgil's Æneid. The several articles are inserted in regular succession, as they occur in the translations of Pope and Dryden. This is an obvious and great improvement on the plan of a Classical Dictionary, in which the articles are inserted alphabetically ; much time is thus saved, and much perplexity avoided, greatly to the reader's advantage.”- Eclectic Review.

“ So far as Homer and Virgil are concerned, this Commentary is very complete. There will be no occasion for reference to anybody's antiquities, Greek, or Roman.-The impurities of Mythology are carefully swept away.”—Monthly Magazine.

“A very useful little work, and well adapted to the purpose for which it is intended.”—Brighton Gazette.

“ It is written in a plain, clear style, and the information contained in it appears likely to implant a sound knowledge of the radiments of Geography in the juvenile mind-thus rendering natural and easy the progress to the higher parts of the science. It is a clever and really useful little book.”Plymouth Herald.

“ The plan, the simple, and demonstrative manner in which it is followed up, the little maps which " e'en a child might understand,” and the promiscuous index of names, whereby a cross-examination may be made on the acquirement of the names in their proper order, form a work likely to prove useful in com. municating the rudiments of geography to children long before it has been usual to give them any instruction on the subject.”—Tyne Mercury.

THE VERACITY

WHEN COMPARED IN THEIR SEVERAL PARTS.

By the Rev. J. J. BLUNT,
Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge.

In small 8vo. 58. 6d.

Mr. Blunt has already signalized himself by his work on the Acts of the Apostles, as an individual intimately conversant with the most minute particulars of Holy Writers, and a very successful disciple of Dr. Paley, in the management of that species of Christian evidence, which arises from the discovery of undesigned coincidence of revealed truth. This volume cannot fail to increase his reputation. It is both a pleasing and instructive work, and is creditable to the talents, learning, and piety of the respected author."-Evangelical Magazine, June, 1830.

[graphic]

WRITTEN BY A LADY FOR HER DAUGHTERS.

“ This is really one of the most practically useful books of any which we have seen on the subject. The Lady, who has written it, has not studied how to form expensive articles for luxurious tables, but to combine elegance with economy; she has given her directions in a plain sensible manner, that every body can understand, and these are not confined merely to cookery, but are extended to a variety of objects in use in Families; by which means the utility of the book is very much increased indeed.”-British Critic.

“ Of this truly useful book, upwards of ONE HUNDRED and TWENTY THOUSAND COPIES have been sold. Probably no other Work on the subject was ever so well received. Although one of the oldest of its class, the constant attention which has been paid to the improvement of each succeeding Edition, and the numerous additions made to it from time to time, enable this work to retain its pre-eminence, whilst the low price at which it is sold makes it accessible to the means of every one.-The bare fact of the number of copies sold, must be a sufficient proof of its excellence to all good housewives, without any recommendation from us; it is, in fact, a book indispensable to every well-regulated kitchen, A new chapter on FRENCH COOKERY seems particularly to merit attention." -Leeds Mercury.

* An entirely novel and most important Chapter on French Cookery is added

to this Edition.
