MESSRS. LONGMAN AND Co.'s LIST OF NEW WORKS.
NEW WORKS FOR COLLEGES AND
AN ENGLISH-GREEK AND GREEK-ENGLISH LEXICON, for the Use of Colleges and Schools; to which is prefixed, a short Grammar of the Greek Language. By the Rev. J. A. GILES, LL.D. late Fellow of Christ Church College, Oxford; Head Master of the City of London School. 8vo. 21s.
"This is a worthy companion to Riddle's Latin Dictionary, containing all the information necessary to a student; and, what is of equal importance, no more. The author is generally successful in developing the structure and composition of the Greek language; avoiding the quibbling derivations which disfigure the older Lexicons, and especially that of Schrevelius, he points out the genuine radicals so far as they can be discovered with certainty."-Athenæum.
A GREEK AND ENGLISH LEXICON TO THE NEW TESTAMENT, especially designed for Colleges and Schools; but also adapted to the use of Students in Divinity, and Theological Readers in general. By the Rev. S. T. BLOOMFIELD, D.D. F.S.A. of Sidney College, Cambridge; Editor of "The Greek Testament, with English Notes," &c. 1 vol. foolscap 8vo. 9s. cloth.
THE NEW ETON GREEK GRAMMAR; or, the
ARY. 8vo. 10s. 6d. cloth.
The above may be had bound together in one Volume. AN ABRIDGMENT OF MR. RIDDLE'S LATINENGLISH and ENGLISH-LATIN DICTIONARY, for Schools. 12s. bl. The ENG.-LATIN, 5s. 6d. and LATIN-ENG. 75. may be had separately. "Riddle's Complete Dictionary is the best of its kind in our language, and we rejoice to hear that in our principal schools it is fast superseding all others. The Abridgement is a careful condensation of the original, and contains quite enough for those students who do not aim at a critical knowledge of the Latin language."-Athenæum.
"By far the most judiciously condensed School Dictionary I have ever met with, and by its clear exposition of the primary meaning of words, leads the student to the secondary and metaphorical ones with admirable judgment and good taste. I consider it as a very able, and I may add, a very philosophical work."-Extract from a letter from the late Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry to the Publishers.

Notes, Critical, Philological, and Explanatory. By the Rev. S. T. BLOOMFIELD, D.D. F.S.A. THIRD EDITION, greatly enlarged and very considerably improved. In two volumes, 8vo. with a Map of Palestine, 27. cloth, lettered.
