The Book of Family Worship is correct in its principles, devotional in its spirit, and well worthy of being used by those who prefer a form to a free address at the throne of mercy."-Family Magazine.

In super-royal 8vo., illustrated by elaborate plates, price 15s. cloth lettered. AN EXAMINATION of the ANCIENT ORTHOGRAPHY of the JEWS, and of the ORIGINAL STATE of the TEXT of the HEBREW BIBLE.

Part I., containing an INQUIRY INTO THE ORIGIN OF ALPHABETIC WRITING; with which is incorporated an Essay on the Egyptian Hieroglyphics. By CHARLES WILLIAM WALL, D.D., Senior Fellow of Trinity College, and Professor of Hebrew in the University of Dublin.

"That many peculiarities in the writings of the Old Testament, especially in the Pentateuch, might possibly be elucidated by a careful examination of the hieroglyphic system of expression, has been for some time a general belief among Biblical scholars. Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians,' and his early education must have naturally influenced his habits of thought and language. This hypothesis, which, however, scarcely went beyond a vague surmise, has been examined with great learning and acuteness by Dr. Wall, Professor of Hebrew in the Dublin University. In the progress of his inquiries, he was led to doubt the reality of Champollion's dis coveries in the interpretation of hieroglyphics, and pursuing an opposite course, arrived at a key to the deciphering of the Rosetta stone. *** He is entitled to the great merit of having discovered a new principle of investigation, which may elucidate the chief difficulties in the Hebrew text."Athenaum.

"The volume abounds with deep learning and forcible argument."-Monthly Review.

PINNOCK'S CATECHISMS of the ARTS and SCIENCES. Illustrated with Maps, Plates, and Wood-cuts,



These Catechisms are intended to form the basis of every branch of useful knowledge, and are of themselves, in fact, "an Epitome of the Arts and Sciences." The style in which they are written is at once clear and simple, conveying instruction to the youthful mind in a manner unattainable by the use of more elaborate and comprehensive works. In short, while they fix on the mind the leading facts in History, and the fundamental principles of Science, the memory is relieved from the burden of retaining a mass of minutia with which larger books necessarily abound. They consist of separate Catechisms on the following subjects::

The LYRE of DAVID; or ANALYSIS of the PSALMS in Hebrew, critical and practical, with a HEBREW AND CHALDEE GRAMMAR. By VICTORINUS BYTHNER; translated by the Rev. THOMAS DEE, A.B. Ex-Sch. J.C.D. To which are added, by the translator, TABLES of the Imperfect Verbs and a PRAXIS of the first eight Psalms.

A desire to read the Sacred Scriptures in the original tongue has become of late evidently very prevalent in these kingdoms. Three months' industrious study, with good books, will effect that desirable object. The number of Hebrew radical words is 1867; of these 1184 occur in the Psalms: it is plain then, that a thorough knowledge of the Psalms very nearly amounts to a thorough knowledge of the language. Bythner's Lyra is, as all the learned know, the very best work on the Psalms; nearly two centuries have gone by since its first publication, and it still stands in all its freshness of estimation, unrivalled by any work that has since appeared on the same subject. Yet, excellent though it is, until now there has since appeared no English version of it, and so it has remained a closed book to the English student. Such a translation, so manifestly called for, will be presented to the English reader, with much unnecessary matter omitted, and several judicious additions made; and which, as the editor trusts, will be found more correct than any preceding edition in the original Latin.

The Third Edition, very considerably improved and enlarged, 18mo. 3s. in cloth.

The WRITER'S and STUDENT'S ASSISTANT; or, a COMPENDIOUS DICTIONARY of ENGLISH SYNONYMES; rendering the more common Words and Phrases in the English Language into the more elegant and scholastic, and affording a choice of the most appropriate, from a Variety of nearly the same Significations; with concise Notes, pointing out, in a familiar way, the Distinction between such Words as are frequently (in error) used synonymously.

"This little work is calculated at once to accelerate literary composition, and to assist in establishing a correct and elegant style, both in speaking and writing."-Gentleman's Magazine.

"It will be found useful to the finished scholar and orator, as well as to the tyros of letters."Sunday Times.

With numerous Additions and Improvements, mounted on rollers, price £1.16s. THE STREAM OF HISTORY:

Showing the Rise and Fall of Empires, and the Progress of the Arts, Sciences, and Literature of every Nation in the World, from the earliest ages to the year 1825. Originally invented by Professor STRASS.

This elegant and useful appendage to the library exhibits a clear and comprehensive view of the principal events of General History; and to those who have not opportunities or time for research, it may be truly said to be invaluable.
