CYCLOPÆDIA OF ENGLISH LITERATURE.

A SELECTION OF THE CHOICEST PRODUCTIONS OF ENGLISH AUTHORS, FROM
THE EARLIEST TO THE PRESENT TIME ; CONNECTED BY A CRITICAL

AND BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY.

EDITED BY ROBERT CHAMBERS,

ASSISTED BY ROBERT CARRUTHERS AND OTHER EMINENT GENTLEMEN

Complete in two imperial octavo volumes, of more than fourteen hundred pages of double column letter-press, and upwards of three hundred elegant illustrations.

Price, cloth, $5,00.

The work embraces about one thousand authors, chronologically arranged and classed as Poets, Historians, Dramitists, Philosophers, Metaphysicians, Divines, etc., with choice selections from their writings, connected by a Biographical, Historical, and Critical Narrative; thus presenting a complete view of English Literature, from the earliest to the present time. Let the reader open where he will, he cannot fail to find matter for profit and delight. The selections are gems - infinito riches in a little mom; in the language of another, “ A WHOLE ENGLISH LIBRARY FUSED DOWN INTO ONE CHEAP BOOK!"

* The AMERICAN edition of this valuable work is enriched by the addition of fine steel and mezzotint Engravngs of the heads of SHAKSPEARE, ADDISON, BYRON; a full-length portrait of DR. JOHNSON, and a beautiful scenic representation of OLIVER GOLDSmith and Dk. Johnson. These important and elegant additions, together with superior paper and binding, render the AMERICAN superior to all other editions.

EXTRACTS FROM COMMENDATORY NOTICES. From W. H. Prescott, Author of " Ferdinand and Isabella.” “The plan of the work is very judicious ... It will put the reader in the proper point of view for surveying the whole ground over which he is travelling. . . . Such readers cannot fail to profit largely by the labors of the critic who has the talent and taste to separate what is really beautiful and worthy of their study from what is superfluous."

“ I concur in the foregoing opinion of Mr. Prescott." - Edward Everett.

" It will be a useful and popular work, indispensable to the library of a student of English literature.”. - Francus Wayland.

“We hail with peculiar pleasure the appearance of this work, and more especially its republication in this country at a price which places it within the reach of a great number of readers." - North American Recier.

“This is the most valuable and magnificent contribution to a sound popular Interature that this century has brought forth. It fills a place which was before a blank. Without it, English literature, to almost all of our countrymen, educated or uneducated, is an imperfect, broken, disjointed mass. Every intelligent man, every inquiring mind, every scholar, felt that the foundation was missing. Chambers's Cyclopædia supplies this radical defect. It begins with the beginning; and, step by step, gives to every one, who has the intellect or taste to enjoy it, a view of Eng. lish literature in all its complete, beautiful, and perfect proportions.” Onondaga Democrat, N. Y.

“We hope that teachers will avail themselves of an early opportunity to obtain a work so well calculated to im. part useful knowledge, with the pleasures and ornaments of the English classics. The work will undoubtedly find a place in our district and other public libraries; yet it should be the 'vade mecum' of every scholar.” – Teachers' Advocate, Syracuse, N. Y.

“ The design has been well executed by the selection and concentration of some of the best productions of Engish intellect,

from the earliest Anglo-Saxon writers down to those of the present day. No one can give a glance a! (he work without being struck with its beauty and cheapness.” Boston Courier.

“We should be glad if any thing we can say would favor this design. The elegance of the execution feasts the eye with beauty, and the whole is suited to refine and elevate the taste. And we might ask, Who can fail to go back to its beginning, and trace his mother tongue from its rude infancy to its present maturity, elegance, and rich ness?” – Christian Mirror, Portland.

“ This Cyclopædia is executed with great fidelity and tact. We know no work which we can recommend nore highly.” - Neal's Saturday Gazette, Phila.

“It is a good selection from the most renowned English writers, and has been fitly described as a whole Enguish "ibrary fused down into one cheap book.” The Boston edition combines neatness with cheapness, engraved portraits Jeing given, over and above the illustrations of the English copy.” – N. Y. Commercial Advertiser.

“Welcome! more than welcome! It was our good fortune some months ago to obtain a glance at this work, and we have ever since looked with earnestness for its appearance in an American edition.” -- Ver York Recorder."

“The industry, learning, and ability of Mr. Chambers are securities for the excellence of the work, and we com. nend it to every man of taste and letters as worthy of his patronage." - New York Observer.

“ This is an elegant reprint of the Edinburgh edition, and certainly presents a specimen of typography and en graving of which we may be proud.” – Ladies' Repository, Boston.

“ This publication winnows the grain from an interminable mass of literary chaff; and, in this regard, is mos welcome to such a labor-saving age as that in which we live. No man of taste should fail of possessing a work which is evidently a classic.” – Morning Signal, Cincinnati.

“ It embodies a large amount of historical and biographical facts, and illustrates more perfectly than any other single book. A work like this cannot fail to prove convenient and interesting to the man of letters; while, to me ordinary reader, it opens a store of information which he will not be likely to obtain from any other source. We hope t may be widely circulated in this country, and contribute something

to the cultivation among vur people of a taste for the literature of their mother tongue, and an acquaintance with the character of its best masters.” – Providence low mal

CRUDEN'S CONDENSED CONCORDANCE. A Complete Concordance to the Holy Scrip

tures; by ALEXANDER CRUDEN, M. A. A new and condensed edition, with an Introduction ; by Rev. David King, LL.D. Price, in boards, $1,25; sheep, $1,50.

The con lensation of the quotations of Scripture, arranged under their most obvious heads, while it diminishes the bulk or the work, greatly facilitates the finding of any required passage.

“ Those who have been acquainted with the various works of this kind now in use well know that Cruden's Concordance far excels all others. Yet we have in this edition of Cruden the best made better. That is, the present is better adapted to the purposes of a Concordance, by the erasure of superfluous references, the omission of unnecessary explanations, and the contraction of quotations, &c. It is better as a manual, and is better adapted by its price to the means of many who need and ought to possess such a work, than the former larger and expensive edition.” — Boston Recorder.

"The present edition, in being relieved of some things which contributed to render all former ones unnecessarily vumbrous, without adding to the substantial value of the work, becomes an exceedingly cheap book.”—Albany Argus. KITTO'S POPULAR CYCLOPÆDIA OF BIBLICAL LITERATURE. Condensed from the larger work.

and America have been engaged. The work, the result of immense labor and research, and enriched by the con-
tributions of writers of distinguished eminence in the various departments of sacred literature, has been, by universal
consent, pronounced the best work of its class extant, and the one best suited to the advanced knowledge of the
present day in all the studies connected with theological science. It is not only intended for ministers and theo-
logical students, but is also particularly adapted to parents, Sabbath school teachers, and the great body of the
religious public. The pictorial illustrations -- amounting to moro than three hundred - are of the very highest
order of the art.

read the Bible with far more intelligence and satisfaction during all the rest of his life.” – Puritan Recorder.
THE FOUR GOSPELS, WITH NOTES. Chiefly explanatory; intended principally for Sabbath
school teachers and Bible classes, and as an aid to family instruction. By HENRY J. Ripley, Newlon Theological
Institution. Seventh edition. Price $1,95.

This work should be in the hands of every student of the Bible, especially every Sabbath school and Bible class teacher. It is prepared with special reference to this class of persons, and contains a mass of just the kind of in formation wanted.

“ The undersigned, having examined Professor Ripley's Notes on the Gospels, can recommend them with confi-
dence to all who
need such helps

in the study of the Sacred Scriptures. Those passages which all can understand
are left without note or comment,' and the principal labor is devoted to the explanation of such parts as need to be
explained and rescued from the perversions of errorists, both the ignorant and the learned. The practical sugges-
tions, at the close of each chapter, are not the least valuable portion of the work. Most cordially for the sake of
truth and righteousness, do we wish for these Notes a wide circulation.

On examining the contents we are favorably impressed, first, by the wonderful perspicuity, simplicity, and comprehensiveness of the author's style; secondly, by the completeness and systematic arrangement of the work, in all its parts, the remarks' on each paragraph being carefully separated from the exposition ; thirdly, by the correct theology, solid instruction, and consistent explanations of difficult passages. The work cannot fail to be received with favor. These Notes are much more full than the Notes on the Gospels, by the same author. A beautiful map accompanies them.” — Watchman and R flector, Boston.
