A HISTORY OF ART IN ANCIENT EGYPT.
By GEORGEs perroT and CHAS, CHIPIEZ.
Translated and Edited by WALTER ARMSTRONG, B.A., with more than 600 Illustrations (many full-page and some double-page, colored), 2 vols., imperial octavo, uniform with Muntz's "Raphael-Life and Works.' Handsomely bound in cloth, gilt top, $15.50; half calf, $22.50; tree calf, $27.50; full levant, $30.
London Saturday Review, October 14, says: "To say that this magnificent work is the best history of Egyptian Art that we possess, is to state one of the least of its titles to the admiration of all lovers of antiquity, Egyptian or other. No previous work can be compared with it for method or completeness. Not only are the best engravings from the older authorities utilized, but numerous unpublished designs have been inserted. Two artists were specially employed in making the necessary drawings from the original monuments, and particularly representing the greater part of the wonderful collection accumulated by MARIETTE, in the Boulak Museum. Mr. Chipiez has added greatly to the value of a work, in which the trained eye of the architect is everywhere visible, by his restorations of various buildings and modes of construction; and the engravings in colors of the wall paintings are a noticeable feature in a work which is in every way remarkable. The history of Egyptian Art is an invaluable treasure-house for the student. Every page is full of artistic interest."
By HENRY B. SMITH, D.D., LL.D.
INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY.
Comprising: I. A General Introduction. II. The Special Introduction; or, The Prolegomena of Systematic Theology. Edited by PROF. Wм. S. Karr, D.D. I vol., 12mo, $1. (Uniform with "Lectures on Apologetics," by same author.)
"The work is edited by Prof. Wm. S. Karr, D.D., of the Hartford Seminary. Prof. Smith's reputation as, perhaps, the foremost exponent of philosophic theology which our country has produced, will, doubtless, secure for this volume a wide circle of readers outside of those especially interested in theological studies. He boldly claimed for theology the position of the queen of sciences, and no one understood better than he what was meant by that claim."

This enchanting volume of "Foreign Talk and Travel" is printed from the 3d English Edition (published in Edinburgh and London at 25 Shillings Sterling).

These short poems have no connection; they vary in measure, but all are simple and without a touch of obscurity. All the legends and instructions inculcate the gentle virtues that make life lovely-courtesy, humility, hospitality, care for the poor and the ill, kindness to dumb animals, perfect manners in social intercourse.

trations in his well known vein.
