TRANSLATOR'S PREFACE.

THE PRESENT VOLUME of the History of Israel, though the
Fifth of the English series, is only the Fourth of its German
original. The translation has been made from the third
edition, published at Göttingen in 1864.

To the friend who so materially lightened his labours in
the earlier part of the volume by contributing a consider-
able portion of translation for his use, the sincerest thanks
of the Translator are gladly rendered. Nor can he omit
to acknowledge with gratitude his great obligations to
Prof. Russell Martineau, M.A., by whose rich stores of
knowledge and unfailing kindness he has so largely pro-
fited.

It only remains to apologise for the tardy appearance of
this volume. Unexpected circumstances seriously inter-
rupted its execution ; and the volume of " · Antiquities,
which was to have been issued simultaneously with it, is
now in other hands.

LEEDS: January, 1874.
