lected all the main facts of the historical part of the Old and New Testament. The account of the interval between the close of the Old and the beginning of the New is supplied from authentic sources. Great care has been taken to exclude whatever would be likely to give offence to the adherents of any religious body. The story is told with clearness and force.... The third book gives a succinct and accurate account of the history of India from its commencement down to the present time. Short though it be, it contains sufficient information for ordinary purposes, and more than many people possess. The space which it occupies is well employed. There is no waste of words, though there are enough of them to ensure perspicuity." ATHENEUM, August 23, 1851.

N the STATE of MAN SUBSEQUENT to the PROMULGATION of CHRISTIANITY. Part I., embracing the Period from the Birth of Christ to the Death of Constantine the Great, being No. XIX. of "Small Books on Great Subjects."

"It will be my object in the present work to trace the reciprocal effect of Christianity on the people and the laws, and of these on Christianity. I shall endeavour to give a fair view of the doctrines and customs of the Church in every century, from contemporary writers, and thus afford the reader means of judging for himself on those questions of ancient practice which are now so often mooted."
