Horne's Introduction to the Critical Study and
Knowledge of the Holy Scriptures.

THE Publishers of LITTELL'S LIVING AGE invite attention to their new and unabridged edition of Horne's great work. It is now ready, in four large volumes, printed on legible type and good paper, and handsomely bound in cloth.

The demand for this comprehensive Manual of Sacred Literature has been unprecedentedly large, exhausting many editions in England and in this country. At the time of its first appearance, it was universally pronounced the best and most important work on the subject in the whole compass of English literature. Nothing has since appeared, it is believed, to take its place, or lessen its great value. A demand for it has again arisen, sufficient to induce the publishers to issue this new edition.

VOLUME I. contains a Critical Inquiry into the Genuineness, Authenticity, Uncorrupted Preservation, and Inspiration of the Holy Scriptures.

VOLUME II., in two parts, treats, first, on Sacred Criticism; including among other matters a particular consideration of the History of the Authorized Version of the Bible; the various Readings, the quotations from the Old Testament in the New, etc.; and, second, on the Interpretation of the Scriptures, and the Subsidiary means thereto.

VOLUME III. contains the Historical and Physical Geography of the Holy Land; the Political and Military Affairs of the Jewish and other Nations incidentally mentioned in the Scriptures; the Sacred Antiquities of the Jews; the Domestic Antiquities, or the Private Life, Manners, Customs, Amusements, &c., of the Jews and other Nations mentioned in the Bible.

VOLUME IV. is appropriated to the Analysis of Scripture.

The first American edition of this work was sold for twelve dollars per copy in rough boards. This edition, handsomely bound in cloth, is reduced in price to ten dollars, for which the four volumes will be forwarded free of expense.

The work is well known as an invaluable one to Clergymen, Sunday-school Teachers, and all Students of the Bible, and should be in the library of every person interested-and who is not?-in the knowledge and understanding of the Holy Scriptures. To place it within the reach of ALL, we have been induced to offer it, also, in connection with our WEEKLY MAGAZINE, - LITTELL'S LIVING AGE. It will be seen by the following club terms," that every Clergyman, Sunday-school Teacher, or other person, by a little effort among the congregation with which he worships, can with no outlay of money procure the work for his own Library, or that of his Sunday-school; and, at the same time, he will introduce a Magazine whose character and influence are sufficiently well known.


has been published for more than twenty years, and is now enlarged. It is issued EVERY SATURDAY, giving fifty-two numbers and over THREE THOUSAND double-column, octavo pages of reading matter yearly.

It has received the commendation of Justice Story, Chancellor Kent, President Adams, Historians Sparks, Prescott, Bancroft, and Ticknor; Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, and many others, and is pronounced the leading magazine of its class by the religious and secular newspapers of the day. It is a work which commends itself to every one who has a taste for the best literature of the Magazines and Reviews, or who cares to keep up with the events of the time.

It contains the best Reviews, Criticisms, Tales, Fugitive Poetry, Scientific, Biographical, Historical, and Political Information, gathered from the entire body of English Periodical Literature, and forming four handsome volumes every year, of immediate interest, and solid, permanent value.

Rev. Henry Ward Beecher says: "Were I, in view of all the competitors that are now in the field, to choose, I should certainly choose THE LIVING AGE. Nor is there, in any library that I know of, so much instructive and entertaining reading in the same number of volumes."

[ocr errors]

The New York Times says: "The taste, judgment, and wise tact displayed in the selection of articles are above all praise, because they have never been equalled."

The Springfield (Mass.) Republican says: "We can do those among our readers who love sound and pure literature no better service than by referring them to this sterling weekly. It is decidedly the best Magazine of the class published in the United States, if not in the world."

The Chicago Daily Republican says: "LITTELL'S LIVING AGE is the oldest, and by far the best, concentration of choice periodical literature printed in this country."

The New York Independent says: "No one can read, from week to week, the selections brought before him in THE LIVING AGE, without becoming conscious of a quickening of his own faculties, and an enlargement of his mental horizon. Few private libraries, of course, can now secure the back volumes, sets of which are limited and costly. But public libraries in towns and villages ought, if possible, to be furnished with such a treasury of good reading; and individuals may begin as subscribers for the new series, and thus keep pace in future with the age in which they live."

THE LIVING AGE is published WEEKLY, at $8.00 a year, FREE of postage.


For a Club of five new subscribers to THE LIVING AGE, we will send an extra copy of the AGE, gratis ; or a copy of HORNE'S INTRODUCTION.

To every person obtaining four or more subscribers to HORNE'S INTRODUCTION, we will send a fifth set of HORNE, or a copy of THE LIVING AGE for a year, gratis, for every four sets so ordered.

To any one sending us a Club of ten or more new subscribers to THE LIVING AGE, for a year, we will forward a bound volume (price $3.00) of the AGE (of either series already published), for EACH subscription sent. A good way to obtain back sets.

Have just published Revised Editions of the following School-Books:


Forming a complete series, yet each book is complete in itself, and may be used independently of the others. These works have just been thoroughly revised by the author, Prof. S. S. Greene, of Brown University, and they are believed to be the most complete and finished text-books on the English language now published.

I. The New Introduction. - A book of two hundred and twenty-five pages, intended for general use in the Public Schools of the country and city. The first part of the book is devoted to Mental Grammar, by which, in a series of familiar oral lessons, the pupil is taught the correct use of words, and the power of their combinations, before he is required to commit the abstract definitions. No text-book on the English language is receiving so much favor as this. The study of Grammar, usually so dry in the beginning for the pupil and teacher, becomes the most pleasant of studies by the use of Professor Greene's plan as presented in this book.

II. The New English Grammar, which has also been lately revised, is fast becoming the Standard Text-Book of the country. It is literally the only text-book on any subject that the best teachers all over the country acknowledge as superior to all others in its department.


A series of three books adapted to the different grades of schools. They have stood alone for ten years in recognizing Physical Geography as the basis of Political Geography, in preserving a natural and dependent order of topics in presenting the subject; in pursuing a system of suggestive questioning, which requires the pupil to link accidental facts and general principles together. No other Series of Geographies is used in so many of the large cities of the Union.

I. The New Primary. This book has just been wholly rewritten and much simplified. It contains eighty-eight pages of clear open type, beautifully illustrated, and is intended as an Introduction to Warren's Common-School Geography.

The first thirty pages are devoted to oral lessons, written in a pleasing and attractive, yet dignified style, calculated to convey to the mind of the young pupil vivid pictures of the natural features of the earth's surface. A succinct definition to be committed, in a different style of type, follows each oral description. In the second part of the book, the principles taught in part first are applied to Descriptive Geography.


II. The Common-School Geography (Revised). — This is the second book of the series, intended to succeed the New Primary. It has lately been supplied with a new set of copper-plate maps, engraved in the best style. A new commercial map of the United States has just been introduced, showing the principal railroad routes of the country. The lines of railroads have been indicated on the principal maps. A new set of Statistical Tables has just been added.

III. The New Physical Geography (In Press). — This book, which follows the same general plan as the present edition of Warren's Physical Geography, will soon be ready for the school


It will contain ten new copper-plate maps. The publishers are availing themselves of every source of information to enable them to represent the science as it is now understood by the greatest living geographers.

Catalogues sent upon application. Correspondence of Educators solicited. Liberal terms for introduction.

Copy of a letter from Monsieur Fetis, Member and Reporter of the Jury of the 10th Class of the Exposition Universelle, Paris, 1867:


"BRUSSELS, Nov. 19, 1867.



"Sir:-I cannot refuse to declare, as member of the Jury of the 10th Class, that which is undeniably established by the Moniteur of July 2d, 1867, viz.:

"That there is one single class of Gold Medals for the Exhibitors; that the Decoration of the Legion of Honor constitutes a recompense of a superior order, and that it has been accorded to you by the Emperor for the merit of your instru


Copy of letters from Ambroise Thomas and F.
A. Gavaert, Members of the Jury:

This proof comes from the very head of the Administration of the Exposition:"EXPOSITION UNIVERSELLE DE 1867, A PARIS COMMISSARIAT GENERAL, "COMMISSION IMPERIAL, CHAMP DE MARS, PAVILLIAN DU COMMISSARIAT GENERAL, 5th December, 1867.

"Sir:-I have received the letter in which you ask me if the Exhibitor, having obtained at the Universal Exposition a same kind of medal, are classified by order of merit in the list of awards, and the Cross of the Legion of Honor must be regarded as having a remunerative value superior to that of Grand Prizes. I have the honor to inform you, that the recompenses of the same denomination are all of equal value, and consequently there is no reason to claim any advantage from the order of inscription of the recipients.

"Accept my salutations.



"The Decoration of the Legion of Honor, is "Member of the Jury of the 10th Class of the altogether independent of the Medals, and of the Exposition Universelle, Paris, 1867."

Prizes awarded by the International Jury, and
constitutes a recompense of a different order.
"Receive, Sir, the assurance of my distin-
guished consideration.

"Entirely in accordance with my confreres, MM. Thomas and Gavaert, I declare that there is but one class of Gold Medals, which are all Prize Medals; any Exhibitor honored with this distinction has therefore the right to announce that he has received the First Medal. GEORGE S. KASTNER. Paris, Oct. 22d, 1867."



"I must tell you that, whatever may be the order in which the names have been inscribed, in each kind of recompense awarded to the 10th Class, the Gold Medal -to speak of this oneis the First Medal. There are not two classes of Gold Medals.

"Receive my salutation. (Signed)


The following letter is the most conclusive and official proof, that any pretension to priority in the classification of the Gold Medals awarded at the Exhibition Universelle is entirely without foundation.

"I am completely of the opinion of my confrere, Thomas.



"(Signed) F. LEPLAY, "Counsellor of State, Commissary General."

Extract from the Catalogue Official de Exposante. Recompences per le International:

"There has been awarded to Messrs. Chickering & Sons (Boston and New York), one of the four Gold Medals of equal value awarded to the manufacturers of Pianos for the great perfection Besides and superiority of their instruments.

AMBROISE THOMAS." this medal of the first class, Mr. Chickering has received the recompense which surpasses all others, the Cross of the Legion of Honor, brilliant confirmation of the decision of the Jury. Mr. Chickering is the only factor of Pianos competing to whom this supreme recompense has been awarded upon the occasion of the Universelle Exposition of 1867."
