Valuable Works Published by JAMES DUNCAN.
HISTORY PHILOSOPHICALLY ILLUSTRATED, from the Fall of the Roman Empire to the French Revolution. By GEORGE MILLER, D.D., M.R.I.A., formerly Fellow of Trinity College, Dublin. Four Vols. 8vo, 21. 2s. boards.
"His work possesses a unity of subject, harmony of proportion, and connexion of parts, that render it not merely the best modern history in our language, but the only one from which a student can obtain a systematic view of the progress of civilization. Another merit of Dr. Miller's work is, that it necessarily leads to the consideration of the important historical problem to which we have more than once referred,—the operation of opinion upon action."-Foreign Quarterly Review.

By JOHN FLEMING, D.D., F.R.S.E., M.W.S., &c., and Author of the "Philosophy of Zoology." One Vol. 8vo, 18s. boards.
"This very important work, which has just appeared, we consider as infinitely superior to any Natural History of British Animals hitherto published. It will become the standard book on British Animals.”—Jamieson's Journal of Science.
HISTORY of MORAL SCIENCE. BY ROBERT BLAKEY. Second Edition. Two Vols. 8vo, 12s. boards.
"The example of Mr. Blakey is one that we hope to see followed in every theory. He has been more anxious to point out the good than the evil; and his defence of many whose character has been maligned is as generous as it is triumphant.”—Athenæum.
"To meet a desideratum, which not only the general and intelligent, but the learned and philosophical reader, must feel, Mr. Blakey has here produced a work of great utility; but the great value of this book will be found in the mass of information it contains respecting men and subjects very frequently referred to without being well understood."-Literary Gazette.
