ENGLISH MISSIONARIES; including an Historical Sketch of the Progress and Present State of some of the principal Protestant Missions of late years. By ANDREW PICKEN, Esq., Author of 'The Dominie's Legacy.'

When we first read the aunouncement of this Work, we determined it ought to be popular. It is an unassuming and pleasant volume, well compiled, and will be read with avidity; more particularly in the country.'-Athenæum.

The interest attached to Missionary Voyages, and their worth, must render this a very popular volume. A general summary and conclusion stamps its contents with a lasting value.'-Literary Gazette.

Though the Christian may find much for solemn reflection, and the Philosopher much to interest in this volume; yet an idler could hardly take up a more amusing book.'-Sunday Times.

GREEK TESTAMENT; with ENGLISH NOTES; Containing Critical, Philological, and Explanatory Notes in English, from the most eminent Critics and Interpreters: with Parallel Passages from the Classics, and with references to Vigerus for Idioms, and Bos for Ellipses. To which is prefixed a short Treatise on the Doctrines of the Greek Article, according to Bishop Middleton, Mr. Granville Sharp, &c. briefly and com

pendiously explained, as applicable to the Criticism of the New Testament. The Various Readings and Parallel Passages are recorded under the Text. Greek and English Indexes are added at the end. By the Rev. E. VALPY, B.D.-Two Plates are added, one illustrative of the Travels of the Apostles, and the other a Map of Judea, and a Plan of the City and Temple of Jerusalem. This Work is intended for the use of Students in Divinity, as well as the Library.

'After a minute examination, the author of the present Manual considers this edition of the Greek Testament as the most valuable of any that has yet been published with critical and philological apparatus, especially for students who wish to purchase only ONE Edition of the Greek Testament.'Horne's Introduction to the Bible.

'We have examined several of the notes, and can speak with confidence of the editor's taste and judgment, knowlege and research. Pertinent matter has been collected with great care; and throughout the work the object of the editor has been to set before his readers useful information from every available source, not to display his own ingenuity by fanciful and recondite interpretations, or to make a parade of his learning by frequent and elaborate and unnecessary quotations. The young divine will find this work not only a safe guide in his studies, but the best which he can obtain within the compass of the same price and size.'-Classical Journal, No. 77.


Second Edition, in one thick vol. 8vo. £1. 1s. bds. GREEK SEPTUAGINT, with the APOCRYPHA; from the Oxford edition of Bos and Holmes.

This Edition is handsomely printed in one volume, 8vo. hot pressed. FOR USE IN CHURCHES AND CHAPELS, as well as the Library.

This elegantly executed volume is very correctly printed, and (which cannot but recommend it to students in preference to the incorrect Cambridge and Amsterdam reprints of the Vatican text) its price is so reasonable as to place it within the reach of almost every one.'-Horne's Introduction to the Bible.

The Septuagint and Testament may be had bound in four volumes. It was originally intended to use a small type, but from the many objections raised, it was considered necessary to print the work in the following enlarged sized type, which is given as a specimen :

1 Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἐποίησεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν.

2 Ἡ δὲ γῆ ἦν ἀόρατος, καὶ ἀκατασκεύαστος καὶ σκότος ἐπάνω τῆ ἀβύσσου· καὶ πνεῦμα Θεοῦ ἐπεφέρετο ἐπάνω τοῦ ὕδατος.

3 Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεὸς, Γενηθήτω φῶς, καὶ ἐγένετο φῶς.

4 Καὶ εἶδεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸ φῶς, ὅτι καλόν· καὶ διεχώρισεν ὁ Θεὸς ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ φωτὸς, καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ σκότους.

5 Καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸ φῶς Ἡμέραν, καὶ τὸ σκότος ἐκάλεσε Νύκτα καὶ ἐγένετο ἑσπέρα, καὶ ἐγένετο πρωΐ, ἡμέρα μία.

GREEK GRADUS; or, Greek, Latin, and English Prosodial LEXICON; containing the Interpretation, in Latin and English, of all words which occur in the Greek Poets, from the earliest period to the time of Ptolemy Philadelphus, and also the Quantities of each syllable; thus combining the advantages of a Lexicon of the Greek Poets and a Greek Gradus. For the Use of Schools and Colleges. By the Rev. J. BRASSE, D.D. late Fellow of Trin. Coll., Camb.

The indefatigable application required in the compilation of the Greek Gradus is manifest; and we heartily recommend the work as supplying a desideratum in our School Books, and likely to be advantageously used to a very wide extent.'-Lit. Chron.

Dr. Brasse has certainly conferred by this publication a lasting benefit on all classical students, and deserves the highest praise for taste, learning, and indefatigable industry.'-London Weekly Review.


SCHREVELIUS' GREEK LEXICON, translated into ENGLISH. In this edition the Latin significations, &c. have been rendered into English, the quantities carefully marked, and about 3000 new words added. It forms a valuable Greek and English Lexicon. 1 vol. 8vo. Pr. 16s. 6d. bds. or 17s. 6d. bound.

The present Edition of SCHREVELIUS' Lexicon, which has for so long a period facilitated the labors, and promoted the knowlege, of Greek Students, comes recommended to the notice of the juvenile reader by having the expla nations in our own tongue. The plan of introducing into School Books plain English for bald Latin, in the interpretations of Greek words, has within these few years been sanctioned by many most respectable teachers of youth, and we trust that a plan so founded in common sense, useful alike to the instructor and the pupil, will be universally adopted.


The only uniform and complete edition, in 5 vols. small 8vo. neatly bound in cloth, price 17. 178. 6d.

The WORKS of BISHOP SHERLOCK, with Life, Summary of each Discourse, Notes, &c. By the Rev. T. S. HUGHES, B. D., of Emmanuel College, Cambridge.




PRELIMINARY remarks on the virtue of contentedness, recommended in the text. In discoursing on it, two particulars to be considered; first, the virtue itself; secondly, the way of attaining or producing it, implied in the words I have learned.

I. For explication of the virtue : the word here expressing it is avráρkela; which signifies self-sufficiency, or having enough of oneself; which is not to be understood absolutely, as if the Apostle took himself to be independent in nature, not wanting any support or comfort without himself, which is the property of God alone, but relatively concerning his present state, his circumstances, and capacities, &c. But for the more clearly understanding this virtue, we must consider the object about which it is conversant; then the several acts which it requires.

1. The object of contentedness is the present state of things, whatever it be, whether prosperous or adverse, wherein by divine Providence we are set. Rich men are observed to be as liable to discontent as poor men; for prosperity is a peevish thing; and men of highest fortunes are most apt to resent the smallest affairs: this point enlarged on. Necessity of contentedness in real adversity, poverty, or disgrace dilated on.
