tures, we understand, are rewritten and carefully revised, and some topics are discussed anew. We will only add that the mechanical execution of the volume is, in every respect, satisfactory.
The following are among the works now in press in the United States, or soon to be printed : A Translation of Dr. Theremin's Grundlinien einer Systematischen

Libraries. Messrs. Asher of Berlin will sell, on the 15th of Dec. next, the library of the poet Tieck, consisting of 7500 works, in 17,000 volumes, many of them rare. Messrs. Sotheby & Co. of London will sell, in the eight days beginning Nov. 28, the theological part of the great collection of Mr. Rodd, late bookseller, many of the volumes being of great value, and some of them very rare. The number of works in the list is 2001. Mr. Henry Stevens, Morley's Hotel, London, will execute any orders.
Correction. On p. 575, it is stated that, “in America the Annales of Tacitus have never been printed.” This is a mistake. The works of Tacitus, including the Annales, form vols. 21, 22, 23, of the Scriptores Romani, published in Boston, in 1817, by Wells & Lilly.
