Annotated Summary of Lord Bacon's Two

pp. 104, price 28. cloth. [June 9, 1863. THIS work is intended to form a manual for THIS
the guidance of Candidates for the various Public Examinations, and likewise to suggest how the easier portion of Bacon's writings may be made a subject of literary study by young persons. It is adapted for scholastic as well as private use, and is applicable to any edition of the text. By self-teachers, who aim at proficiency in English composition, and who do not shrink from strenuous labour, the various sections are adapted for use as outlines of themes to be written out from the learner's own resources.
The present volume forms the THIRD PART, and completes the course, on the same plan as the First and Second. The information supplied in each Section is just what is needed and sufficient, so that no grammar or dictionary of synonyms will have to be consulted. The Exercises are in general made dependent on the application of this information, so that by being made familiar to the learner's mind it may become the germ of future thought and action. For the special requirements of both the classes of students for whose use this book is designed, it has been sought to supply in an orderly and systematic sequence such a body of materials as will supersede the necessity of referring to any other work on English composition. In short, it has been sought to provide within the limits of a small volume such a series of finishing exercises as, honestly, gone through by a boy of average capacity, shall insure him a ready command of correctness, ease, and perspicuity in putting his thoughts upon any subject into writing; the ability to describe all be sees, hears, feels, or understands; and the useful talent of presenting or reproducing in his own language any matter which his pursuits may bring before him in the business of life.

now in their fourteenth and seventh edi. tions respectively, are in very general use.
The Author was induced to prepare them with a view to supply, in the first instance for his own school, a manual of English composition suitable to follow any ordinary first grammar, but which should impel pupils using it to draw upon their own resources rather than seek extraneous aid ; and simultaneously to acquire by degrees the habit of arranging their ideas with clearness and propriety one of the highest aims of education, and for which no branch of it is better fitted than composition in one's native tongue. With this object the lessons are all carefully graduated from the outset, the exercises are made practically useful as well as interesting, and each one is so constructed that it cannot be performed otherwise than by the industrious application of the learner's own judgment and reflection.

metic;' being a Treatise on the Higher Rules and Operations of Arithmetic. By THOMAS Tate, F.R.A.S. Author of 'Exercises on Mechanics and Natural Philosophy,' &c. 12mo. pp. 144, price 3s. 6d. cloth.
[July 20, 1863. THEmethod of teaching Arithmetic from first earlier book on this subject, having been almost universally adopted by the elementary schools of this country, it was believed that a systematic work, applying the same plan and method to the higher rules and operations of Arithmetic, would be acceptable to all interested in education. In pursuance of this system, the Author has sought throughout this collection of rules and examples to make the science of numbers the logic of the people (as it has been termed), by assigning for the rules of arithmetic such reasons as may be readily understood ; or, in other words, by appealing to the pupil's understanding, instead of merely taxing his memory with abstract rules and formulæ.
THE NEW TESTAMENT, illustrated with
ENGRAVINGS on Wood from the OLD MASTERS. The skill of the printer and the art of the woodengraver have not hitherto been applied to the production of an edition of the New Testament representing the degree of perfection which these arts have reached in modern times. The wish to produce such an Edition has encouraged the expenditure of much time and cost in the preparation of the volume now announced ; and it is hoped it may be considered worthy of the object for which it was undertaken. The volume will contain the whole of the New Testament, with numerous engravings on wood from the designs of

Each page will be decorated with borders, ornaments, or initial letters engraved on wood, copied from the finest Italian manuscripts of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and from other sources. Numerous medal. lion picture-subjects are also introduced into the margins. The work has been produced under the general superintendence of Mr. HENRY SHAW, F.S.A. and is expected to be ready during the present year.
The first Edition, on large paper, of the full quarto size, will be limited to Two hundred and fifty copies;-the price will be Ten Guineas.

Cew Work by the Author of The Arrest of
'A CHRONICLE OF ENGLAND, from B.C.
55 to A.D. 1485,' written and illustrated by JAMES E. DOYLE, the Designs engraved and printed in colours by EDMUND Evans, in One Volume quarto, will be ready in November next. It has been known for some years that Mr. Doyle had written a Chronicle, or Historical Sketch, of English History from the earliest times to the end of the Fifteenth Century, illustrated very copiously with coloured drawings, which were intermingled with the text. These drawings were not mere fancy sketches, but the result of careful study not only in costume and architecture, but also in the main incidents which they were meant to illustrate. The original MS, has been seen and admired in various circles, from the very highest ; and it has been a matter of regret that the great cost of reproducing the ILLUSTRATIONs in facsimile has hitherto opposed an insurmountable obstacle to its publication. But a recent improvement in the art of printing in colours has rendered the undertaking practicable, and the volume now announced is the result. It is, however, by no means a mere reproduction of the original MS. for the history has been carefully revised and minutely studied from the Old Chroniclers and other original sources ; and much additional thought has been bestowed throughout on the Illustrations, which have been drawn on wood by Mr. Doyle himself. It is therefore believed that the forthcoming volume will possess attractions of no ordinary kind. ANSTER'S FAUST, PART II. ---In the
