"Much as had been done in the two preceding impressions, the third edition is yet further enlarged, and very materially improved. In addition to his own researches, Dr. Bloomfield has availed himself of various suggestions for the improvement of his work, which in its present state exhibits the result of the labours of all preceding critical editors of the New Testament, as well as of his own researches for more than thirty years. Upon the whole, without depreciating the merit of the labours of preceding editors, this third edition may justly be regarded as the most valuable for Biblical students, that has yet been issued from the press in this country."

HISTORY OF THE PELOPONNESIAN WAR,
BY THUCYDIDES. Newly Translated into English, and accompanied with very copious Notes, Philological and Explanatory, Historical and Geographical; with Maps and Plates. 3 vols. 8vo. 21. 5s.
"In the Notes by this Translator, numerous interesting points of classical antiquities are ably discussed, and many thousands of invaluable illustrations of the obscure passages of the author are adduced from the best Greek writers of every age. As to the Version, con sidering the all but insuperable difficulties with which the translator has had to contend, in a writer said by some great scholars to be untranslateable, we can with truth say, that he has executed his task with fidelity, taste, and judgment. Upon the whole we can pronounce the work to be quite indispensable to all who would hope to understand the text of the greatest of historians, but most obscure of writers."-Gentleman's Magazine.
New Recension of the Text, with
copions English Notes, Critical, Philological, and Explanatory; Examination Questions, etc., for the use of Colleges and the Public Schools. 3 vols. post 8vo. 278. bds.
"We feel confident that no reader of Thucydides will fail to purchase an edition where, be their scholarship what it may, they cannot rise from its perusal without having learnt much that they did not know before, and which they cannot obtain elsewhere.... We will not do the tutors of colleges, and masters of public schools the injustice to believe, that they are so regardless of their own reputation and their pupils' improvement, as not to adopt the only edition of Thucydides, which this or any other country has produced, really suited for the instruction of young persons."-Gentleman's Magazine.

OF THE NEW TESTAMENT. Edited, with careful revision, corrections, occasional additions, and a Preface, by the Rev. S. T. Bloomfield, D.D. F.S.A. 1 vol. 8vo. Eighteen Shillings, cloth.
"Dr. Robinson's Lesicon, as edited by Dr. Bloomfield, hardly requires our warm and sincere praise. It must prove of great value to every student who is wise enough to procure it."-British Critic and Quarterly Theological Review.
"We consider this the best Lericon of the Greek Testament that is extant. Dr. Bloomfield has proved himself a most indefatigable scholar, and his present edition deserves unbounded success.'-Church of England Quarterly Review.
