THE GREEK TESTAMENT, with copious English

Notes, Critical, Philological, and Explanatory; THIRD EDition, greatly enlarged and very considerably improved. In two closely-printed volumes, 8vo.

with Map of Palestine, price 21. handsomely bound in cloth, lettered. “Much as had been done in the two preceding improvinns, the third edition is yet further enlarged, and very materially improved. In addition to his oten researches, Dr. Bloomfield has arailed hinsell of varions 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 Tratament, as well as of his own researches for more than thirty years. I'pon 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."

Rev. T. Hariwell Horne's Introduction to the Holy Scriptures. 9th edition. 1839. COLLEGE & SCHOOL GREEK TESTAMENT,

with English Notes. Second Edition, with Additions, and a new Map of Palestine, a lapted to the Gospel History. One thick volume, 12mo. 108. 6d.

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. 2. 58. In the Notes by this Translator, numerous interesting points of classical antiquities are ably discussed, and many thousands of invaluable illustrations of the obscure panages of the author are adduced from the host Greek criterios every age. As to the version, con. sidering the all but insuperable difficulties with which the translator has had to content, in a writer said by some great scholars to be untranslateable, we can with truth say, that ar has errented his task with fidelity, taste, and judgment; Upon the whole we can pronounce the work to be quite indispensable to all who rould 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

copions English Notes, Critical, Philological, and Explanatory; Examination Questions, etc., for the use of Colleges and the Public Schools. 3 vols, post 8v0. 2ĩs. bds. "We feel confident that no reader of Thucydides will fail to purchase an edition there, be their scholarship what it may, they cannot rise from its perusal silhout having learni much that they did not knot before, and which they cannot obtain elsewhere..., We will not do the future of colleges, and masters of public schools the injustice to believe, that thry are so regardless of their own reputation and their pupils'improrement, 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.

We consider this the best Lesicon of the Greek Testament that is estant. Dr. Bloom peld has proved himself a mor! indefatigable scholar, and his present edition deserves Nnbounded success." Church of England Quarterly Review.
