Head Master of Uppingham Grammar School.
es of mat Ctesiphit
48. The Child's English Grammar.
By the same Author. New Edition. 86 pp. (1859). Demy 18mo. The Author's effort in these two books has been to point out the broad, beaten, every-day path, carefully avoiding digressions into the byeways and eccentricities of language. This Work took its rise from questionings in National Schools, and the whole of the first part is merely the writing out in order the answers to questions which have been used already with success. The study of Grammar in English has been much neglected, nay by some put on one side as an impossibility. There was perhaps much ground for this opinion, in the medley of arbitrary rules thrown before the student, which applied indeed to a certain number of instances, but would not work at all in many others, as must always be the case when principles are not put forward in a language full of ambiguities. The present work does not, therefore, pretend to be a compendium of idioms, or a philological treatise, but a Grammar. Or in other words, itsintention is to teach the learner how to speak and write correctly, and to understand and explain the speech and writings of others. Its success, not only in National Schools, from practical work in which it took its rise, but also in classical schools, is full of encouragement.
49. School Songs.
6d. Cambridge and London.
Second Edition. Crown 8vo. cloth (1861).
By dedicating this work to his elder Pupils at Harrow, the Author hopes that he sufficiently indicates what is and what is not to be looked for in it. He desires to record his impression, derived from the experience of many years, that the Epistles of the New Testament, no less than the Gospels, are capable of furnishing useful and solid instruction to the highest classes of our Public Schools. If they are taught accurately, not controversially; positively, not negatively; authoritatively, yet not dogmatically, taught with close and constant reference to their literal meaning, to the connexion of their parts, to the sequence of their argument, as well as to their moral and spiritual instruction; they will interest, they will inform, they will elevate; they will inspire a reverence for Scripture never to be discarded, they will awaken a desire to drink more deeply of the Word of God, certain hereafter to be gratified and fulfilled.

HISTORY OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
DURING THE MIDDLE AGES. By ARCHDEACON HARD-
This Volume claims to be regarded as an integral and independent treatise on the Mediaval Church. The History commences with the time of Gregory the Great, because it is admitted on all hands that his pontificate became a turning-point, not only in the fortunes of the Western tribes and nations, but of Christendom at large. A kindred reason has suggested the propriety of pausing at the year 1520,—the year when Luther, having been extruded from those Churches that adhered to the Communion of the Pope, established a provisional form of government and opened a fresh era in the history of Europe.
HISTORY OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
DURING THE REFORMATION. By ARCHDN. HARDWICK.
This Work forms a Sequel to the Author's Book on The Middle Ages. The Author's wish has been to give the reader a trustworthy version of those stirring incidents which mark the Reformation period. Cambridge and London.

HISTORY OF THE BOOK OF COMMON
PRAYER. With a Rationale of its Offices. By FRANCIS PROCTER, M.A. Fifth Edition. 464 pp. [1860). Crown 8vo. cloth. 108. 6d.
The Subject of this Book has been already treated by numerous writers of distinction. When the present series of Manuals was projected, it did not appear that any one of the existing volumes taken singly was available for the desired object. In the course of the last twenty years the whole question of liturgical knowledge has been reopened with great learning and accurate research, and it is mainly with the view of epitomizing their extensive publications, and correcting by their help the errors and misconceptions which had obtained currency, that the present volume has been put together.
HISTORY OF THE CANON OF THE NEW
TESTAMENT DURING THE FIRST FOUR CENTURIES.
The Author has endeavoured to connect the history of the New Testament Canon with the growth and consolidation of the Catholic Church, and to point out the relation existing between the amount of evidence for the authenticity of its component parts and the whole mass of Christian literature. Such a method of inquiry will convey both the truest notion of the connexion of the written Word with the living Body of Christ, and the surest conviction of its divine authority.
INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY OF THE
GOSPELS. BY BROOKE FOSS WESTCOTT, M.A. 458 pp. (1860). Crown 8vo. cloth. 108. 6d.
The title of this book will explain the chief aim which the Author had in view. It is intended to be an Introduction to the Study of the Gospels. The Author has therefore confined himself in many cases to the mere indication of lines of thought and inquiry from the conviction that truth is felt to be more precious in proportion as it is opened to us by our own work. In a subject which involves so vast a literature much must have been overlooked; but the Author has made it a point at least to study the researches of the great writers, and consciously to neglect
