Ure's Dictionary



Containing a clear Exposition of their Principles and Practice. By Robert Hunt, F.R.S., Keepei of Mining Records, formerly Professor of Physics, Royal School of Mines; author of "Re searches on Light, ' etc. Assisted by numerous contributors eminent in science and familiar with manufactures. Vol. IV. supplementary to the Seventh Edition; pp. 1028, with 440 wood-cuts. Medium 8vo, price $12.50 (42J.), cloth.



Complete in four vols., including Supplement. With 2604 wood-cuts. Price $36 (£7. js.), cloth.

J^P3 It was discovered, when the latter pages of the Third Volume of this Dictionary were printed, in 1875, that several of the articles in the earlier portions of the work required some additions, owing to the advances which had been made in the useful applications of science, and that new articles were necessary to record the progress of several examples of inventive ingenuity. To meet this necessity it was determined to produce a Supplementary Volume, in which all the required additions should be made, and all improvements and new applications of value carefully recorded. It is hoped this has now been done in 3 satisfactory manner, and that this Supplementary Volume will be found to include everything relating to Arts, Manufactures, and Mines, which has claimed attention since the publication of the previous volumes, and to represent faithfully the state of these divisions of human industry up to the commencement of 1878.

An originil novel of American life and character, published anonymously under the title of "As it may happen," is nearly ready from the press of Porter & Coates. The ms. or advance sheets have been read by several competent to judge, and all, as may be noted elsewhere, unite in prophesying for it a deserved success. It is said to combine much interest •of plot with humor in delineation, and one prophet speaks of it as the American novel we have all of us been waiting for.

Lee & Suf.i'ari) have nearly ready " Midnight Marches through Persia," by Henry Ballantine, a work of such interest that President Seelye, of Amherst, has written an introduction for it; and a volume on " Spiritual Manifestations," by Rev. Charles Beecher, which cannot fail to attract general attention. Spiritualists will be glad of such reinforcement as he brings to their cause, which has had hard luck for many months past; and intelligent people not spiritualists will gladly listen to a man of mind and character like Mr. Beecher.

D. Al'PLETON & Co. have just ready " The Speaking Telephone," by Geo. S. Prescott, in which he also includes readable papers on the electric light and other recent electrical improvements. "Tales from the German of Paul Heyse," forming No. 15 of Collection of Foreign Authors, and "My Guardian," by Ada Cambridge, make up their list of fiction for this week. "Exercise and Training," by C. H. Rolfe, and "Alcohol," by W. S. Greenfield, are the first of the valuable series of Health

Primers, and the "Appleton's Handbook of Winter Resorts" has been revised for the winter of 1878-79.

Harper & Brothers will send out next week Samuel Smiles' new book, illustrated, on the Scotish geologist, "Robert Dick, Baker of Thurso," of which we have already spoken; an eclectic volume on Samuel Johnson, as described by Boswell and other chroniclers and in his own writings, edited by E. T. Mason; a story of colonial days, "Captain Nelson," by the well-known chronicler Samuel Adams Drake, in the Library of American Fiction; and in the Half-Hour series, a welcome little "Primer of Spanish Literature" by Helen P. Conant, and Goldsmith's "Vicar of Wakefield."

Besides the two volumes nearly ready at Chas. Scribner's Sons, already noted,—Jules Simon's History of the French Government under Thiers, and Prof. Boyesen's book on Goethe and Schiller,—they have in preparation, for early in the new year, two volumes of Gladstone's essays, of whjch there will be five in all, embracing, under the title of "Gleanings of Past Years," his most important contributions to periodical literature during the entire period from 1843 to 1878; Max Midler's Hibbert Lectures, delivered in the Chapter House of Westminster Abbey, "On the Origin and Growth of Religion as Illustrated by the Religions of India;" a volume of sermons by Rev. Chas. Shakspeare, with introduction by Canon Farrar, presenting, on the text of "St. Paul at Athens," a defence ol spiritual Christianity in relation to certain aspects of modern thought; and a revised and enlarged edition, the final one, of ex-President Woolsey's important work on " International Law."

Henry Holt & Co. promise some pleasant reading for the new year in Frances Anne Kemble's "Records of a Girlhood." of which they will presently issue a handsome one-volume American edition, containing all the matter of the three English volumes, with a lovely portrait of Fanny Kemble as a girl, engraved here for their edition. Her reminiscences of those famous days of the English stage when she herself was a rising star, and of her acquaintance with the most famous people of that time, have already much delighted readers of the Atlantic Monthly, but these articles form only a portion of the book. An index has been prepared for this volume. Henry Holt ,t Co. also have nearly ready a book on "Demonology and Devil-lore," by Moncure D. Conway, who claims on his title-page a double right to treat of the subject, as both a B. D. of Divinity College, Harvard University, and a member of the Anthropological Institute, London. The book will be one to take rank with E. B. Tylor's important and interesting works on primitive culture and folk-lore, and will make two large volumes, with a number of illustrations depicting various imaginings of His Satanic Majesty.
