NEW SERIES OF BOOKS

FOR SCHOOLS AND FAMILIES.

THE Committee of the Religious Tract Society have long been convinced that a new series of books for schools and families was greatly needed. Many of the works now in use have much'merit; but they are generally destitute of that truth by which alone the understanding can be enlightened, the heart renovated, and the feet guided in “ the paths of peace.” It is to provide books adapted to supply this deficiency that the present effort is made.

The pens of several esteemed writers have been secured for this series.

In works of History, the object will be carefully to exclude those details which are objectionable, and to view all events as under the control of Divine Providence. In Biography, the conduct of men will be estimated, not by the maxims of this world, as in most other publications, but by the only infallible standard, the word of God. In every book of general instruction, sound information will be imparted, on decidedly Christian principles.

The following have been published in cloth boards :

THE HISTORY OF GREECE, containing 390 pages, with a strongly mounted Map. 28. 6d.

THE HISTORY OF ROME, containing 450 pages, with three Maps, 38.

LIVES OF ILLUSTRIOUS GREEKS, containing 412 pages, 3s.

PALEY'S EVIDENCES OF CHRISTIANITY with INTRODUCTION, Notes, and SUPPLEMENT, by the Rev. T. R. BIRKS, A.M., late Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, containing 452 pages, 38.

PALEY's HORÆ PAULINÆ, with NOTES and SUPPLEMENTARY TREATISE, entitled HORÆ APOSTOLICÆ, by the Rev. T. R. BIRKS, A.M., containing 420 pages, with a Map, 3s.

A l'NIVERSAL GEOGRAPHY, in four parts : HISTORICAL, MATHENATICAL, PHYSICAL, and POLITICAL. By the Rev. T. MILNER, M.A., F.R.G.s. Illustrated by 10 coloured Maps, constructed by A. PETERMANN, F.R.G.S. One thick 12mo vol. 5s, cloth boards.

Other volumes are in progress.

Each volume is complete in itself, printed in a good type, and, from it cheapness, within the means of all for whom it is prepared. The Committee urgently appeal to Christian parents and teachers to sustain this effort and secure its success.
