And in case of difficulty, of Mr. Valpy, as none are ever out of print.

** Orders are requested to be given for · Valpy's Editions.'

[All are bound unless otherwise specified.]

GREEK.

GREEK TESTAMENT, with ENGLISH Notes; Second Edition. Containing Critical, Philological, and Explanatory Notes in English from the most eminent Critics and Interpreters: with parallel passages from the Classics, and with references to Vigerus for Idioms, and Bos for Ellipses.-Two various readings are recorded under the text. Greek and English Indexes are added. By the Rev. E. VALPY, B.D. Three Vols. 8vo. Price 21. 58. bds.-Two Plates are added, one illustrative of the Travels of the Apostles, and the other a Map of Judea, and a Plan of the City and Temple of Jerusalem. This work is intended for the use of Students in Divinity, as well as the Library.

ute examination, the author of the present inanual considers this edition of the Greek Testament as the mot valuable of any that has yet been published, with critical and philological apparatus, especially for students who wish to purchase only ONE Edition of the Greek Testament. -Horne's Introduction to the Bible.

2. GREEK SEPTUAGINT, with the APOCRYPHA; from the Oxford edit. of Bos and Holmes. Il. 8s. bds.

This Edition is hot-pressed, and handsomely printed in one volume, 8vo. FOR USE IN CHURCHES AND CHAPELS, as well as the Library.

* The Septuagint and Testament may be had uniformly bound in four handsome volumes.

This elegantly-executed volume is very correctly printed, and (which cannot but recommend it to students in preference to the incorrect Cainbridge and Amsterdam price is so reasonable as to place it within the reach of almost every one. Hornc's Introduction to the Bible.

3. SCHREVELIUS' GREEK LEXICON, translated into ENGLISH. In this edition the Latin significations, &c. have been rendered into English, the quantities carefully marked, and about 3006 new words added. It forms a valuable Greek and English Lexicon. I vol. 8vo. Pr. 16s. 6d. bds.

The present Edition of SCHREVELIUS' Lexicon, which has for so long a period facilitated the labors and promoted the knowlege of Greek Students, comes recommended to the notice of the jure. nile reader by having the explanations in our own tongue. The plan of introducing into School Books plain English for bald Latin, in the interpretations of Greek words, has within these few years been sa uctioned by many most respectable teachers of youth, and we trust that a plan so founded in common sense, useful alike to the instructor and the pupil, will be universally adopted.

Great care has been taken to make the translation as correct as possible, and though we profess not to claim the merit of universal accuracy. yet we venture to hope that the mistakes, which we have committed, are but few and slight. We may add that the various errors in the original, which bave been multiplied in successive Editions, had become so numerous, that we cannot, alter all our care, expect to have succeeded in detecting the whole ; but what have escaped us on the present occasion may fall under our eye at a fature time.
