(Dedicated to his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury.)
"Much as had been done in the two preceding impressions, the THIRD edition is yet farther enlarged (to the extent of not less than 200 pages), and considerably improved. This third edition of the Greek Testament may justly be regarded as the most valuable for biblical students that has yet been issued from the press in this country." HORNE'S INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY OF THE SCRIPTURES.
COLLEGE AND SCHOOL GREEK TESTAMENT, WITH ENGLISH Notes. Second Edition, with Additions, and a New Map of Palestine, adapted to the Gospel History. One thick volume, 12mo. 10s. 6d. cl. let. "This edition of the Greek Testament supplies a desideratum in scholastic literature. The notes (which are strictly grammatical, scholastic, and elementary) furnish to the juvenile student every requisite aid for the correct interpretation of the New Testament."-CHRISTIAN REMEMBRANCER.
"It is impossible to say how far the public are indebted to Dr. Bloomfield for these labours of his industrious pen; they will carry down his name with the highest honour to posterity. Our prayer is, that his invaluable life may long be spared, and that he may be permitted to reap the full reward of his self-sacrificing devotion to the imperishable interests of Biblical science."-EVANGELICAL MAGAZINE.
THE 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. 45s.
"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, considering 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. THUCYDIDES. New Recension of the Text, with copious English Notes, Critical, Philological, and Explanatory; Examination Questions, &c. for the Use of Colleges and the Public Schools. 3 vols. post 8vo. £1. 7s. 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 pupil's 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 MAG. "Thucydidis Historia Græcè, a doctissimo Britanno ternis voluminibus elegantissimè edita."-PROF. Porro, of Frankfort, in Pref. to his noble Variorum Edit. of Thucydides, 10 vols. 8vo.
ROBINSONS GREEK AND ENGLISH LEXICON OF THE NEW
TESTAMENT. Edited, with careful revision, corrections, occasional additions, and a Preface, by Dr. BLOOMFIELD. 1 vol. 8vo. 28s. cloth. "Dr. Robinson's Lexicon, 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 Lexicon 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.
