No attempt at display has been made in printing the Catalogue. We have aimed at a description of the books for sale, in the plainest and simplest manner, and we believe we have erred, if indeed it be an error, in giving too poor an account of the splendid treasures which we now offer. Such treasures, we think, as have never before been offered to American buyers.

Catalogues may be had by application to the Auctioneers, or to SIDNEY S. RIDER, Providence, R. I.

From 1815 to 1883.

By S. C. HALL. With portraits of Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Hall. One vol., crown 8vo, 612 pp., $2.50.

Mr. Hall, who is well known as editor for many years of the London Art Journal, was at one time a parliamentary reporter; he succeeded Campbell as editor of The New Monthly Magazine, and he filled other editorial positions; and was the author, in conjunction with Mrs. S. C. Hall, of numerous publications. During his long connection with letters he met many men of note; in fact, he has something to say in this book of almost every person in England who has occupied public attention during the past sixty years.

Dr. McCosh's Philosophical Series.



No. 1. CRITERIA OF DIVERSE KINDS OF TRUTH. As opposed to Agnosticism. Being a Treatise on Applied Logic.


By JAMES MCCOSн, D.D., LL.D. Each, I vol., 12mo, paper, 50 cents.

"It is not unlikely to prove true in the end, that the most useful popular service which Dr. McCosh has rendered to the cause of right thinking, and to a sound philosophy of life, is his proposed Philosophic Series.”—The Independent.


English Style in Public Discourse.

With special relation to the usages of the pulpit. By Professor AUSTIN PHELPS, D.D., author of "The Theory of Preaching," ""Men and Books," etc. I vol., 12mo, $2.

The well-rounded and graceful culture of the author of "Men and Books" is too well known to need mention, and the subject of which this book treats has been so exemplified in his previous writings that it would be difficult to name another writer who could so surely be selected as an authority in all that pertains to the correct and elegant use of the English language.


Old Testament Revision.

A Hand-book for English readers. By ALEXANDER ROBERTS, D.D., author of " Companion to the Revised Version of the English New Testament." I vol., 12mo, $1.

In his preface Dr. ROBERTS says: "My object in the present work has been to present in easy untechnical language, a considerable amount of general information, which may enable ordinary English readers to peruse with greater interest and intelligence the Scriptures of the Old Testament when these are set before them in the Revised Version."


A CRITIQUE OF DESIGN-ARGUMENTS. A Historical Review and Free Examination of the Methods of Reasoning in Natural Theology. By L. E. HICKS, Professor of Geology in Denison University, Granville, Ohio. I vol., crown 8vo, $2.

Professor Hicks has prepared a work of great value upon a subject which has assumed a new importance of late, and upon which the arguments of the advocates of a Divine causality must hinge.

IN THE SHADOW OF THE PYRENEES. From Basque-Land to Carcassonne. By MARVIN R. VINCENT, D.D. I vol., 12mo, with etchings and maps, $2.

Dr. Vincent's description of the Basque people, in their stronghold Guipuzcoa, that strange race whose very origin is a matter of conjecture, and whose language is the unique remnant of a prehistoric dialect; and his poetical account of Anglet, with its convent and retreat, of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Pasages, San Sébastian, Azpetia, and other Spanish towns, ending with Lourdes, Toulouse, and Carcassonne, together form one of the most fascinating narratives of travel, espe cially noteworthy for its freshness and novelty.


GATES INTO THE PSALM-COUNTRY. BY MARVIN R. VINCENT, D.D. I vol., 12mo, $1. "The book may be cordially recommended to the perusal of young men especially, who will find in it the soundest views of life, and the most elevated religious conceptions, enforced with equal kindness, eloquence, and power."-New A NEW EDITION REISSUED FOR 1883-84.
