A History of Egypt.
By F. C. H. WENDEL, A. M., Ph. D. Series of History Primers.
A brief history of ancient Egypt from the earliest times to the conquest of Alexander, based on the latest researches. In the chronology, the author has followed Edward Meyer's system of "approximate dates.” The maps have been most carefully prepared, to assist the reader in understanding the history of the great campaigns. The study of Egyptology is of great importance to the theologist, the historian, the student of civilization, and the art student; and the basis of a rational study of Egyptology is a thorough knowledge of Egyptian history. This brief work gives as complete a history as the limited space will allow.
Introduction to the Study of Philos
By William T. HARRIS, LL. D., United States Commissioner of Education. Com. prising passages from his writings, selected and arranged with commentary and illustration by MARIETTA KIES, Professor of Mental and Moral Science in Mount Holyoke Seminary. 12mo. Price, $1.50.
Philosophy as presented by Dr. Ilarris gives to the student an interpretation and explanation of the phases of existence which render even the ordinary affairs of life in accordance with reason; and for the higher or spiritual phases of life, his interpretations have the power of a great illumination, and many students are apparently awakened to an interest i ophy, not only as a subject to be taken as a prescribed study, but also as a subject of fruitful interest for future years, and as a key which unlocks many of the mysteries of other subjects pursued in a college course.

The Development of Old English
By Brother Azarias, of the Brothers of Christian Science. Third edition. Revised.
12mo, 216 pages. Price, $1.25. The growth and development of Old English Thought as expressed in Old English Literature is traced from the first dawnings of history down to the Norinan Conquest. The author has sought in the manners and customs, the religion, law, government, and international relations of the Old English people, the sources whence the literature of the people derives its tone and coloring. For this purpose the author has laid every available source of information under contribution: dry land-grants, antiquated law-codes, the decrees of councils, the lives of saints-legend and history, the rescarches of scholar, critic, and antiquarian, have all of them been directly or indirectly brought to bear upon the subject, and have been made use of to throw light upon the purely literary document.
The work is intended for class use, and the author has, therefore, presented only an outline of his subject. He leaves it to the teacher to fill in whatever details are lacking.
