the Bible Commentar:
A PLAIN EXPLANATORY EXPOSITION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
FOR EVERY BIBLE READER.
To be published at regular intervals in royal octavo volumes at the uniform
price of $5.00 per volume.
THE HOLY BIBLE
According to the Authorized Version, A. D. 1611. WITH EXPLANATORY AND CRITICAL NOTES AND A
REVISION OF THE TRANSLATION BY BISHOPS AND CLERGYMEN OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND.
The BIBLE COMMENTARY, the publication of which will shortly be commenced, by CHARLES SCRIBNER & co, simultaneously with its appearance in England, had its origin in the widely felt want of a plain explanatory Comentary on the Holy Scriptures, which should be at once more comprehensive and compact than any now published Projected in 1863, the selection of the scholars to be employed upon it was entrusted to a Committee named by the Speaker of the British House of Commons and the Arclıbishop of York ( for the names of this Committee and list of contributert see another page), and through the agency of this Committee, there has been concentrated upon this great work. a bination of force such as has not been enlisted in any similar undertaking in England, since the translation of King James version of the Bible. Of the THIRTY-SIX DIFFERENT DIVINES who are engaged upon the work, nearly al 27 widely known in this country as well as in England, for their valuable and extensive contributions to the Literature of the Bible, and in this Commentary they condense their varied learning and their most matured judgments.
The great object of the BIBLE COMMENTARY is to put every general reader and student in full possession of whatever information may be necessary to enable him to understand the Holy Scriptures; to give him, as far as possible the same advantages as the Scholar, and to supply him with satisfactory answers to objections resting upon misrepresett tions or misinterpretations of the text. To secure this end most effectually, the Comment is chiefly explanatory, presenting in a concise and readable form the results of leamed investigations carried on during the last half century. When fait discussions of difficult passages or important subjects are necessary, they are placed at the end of the chapter or volume.
The text is reprinted without alteration, from the Authorized Version of 1611 with marginal references and renderings but the notes forming this Commentary, will embody amended translations of passages proved to be incorrect in that Versica
The work will be divided into EIGHT SECTIONS which it is expected will be comprised in as many volumes, and each volume will be a royal octavo. Typographically special pains dias been taken to adapt the work to the use of oidet readers and students, N. B. The American editi
of the Bible Commentary, will be printed from stereotype plates, duplicated from those upon which the English edition is printed, and will be fully equal to that in every respect.

*** The increasing demand for this Catalogue has induced the Publisher, in the preparation of the present edition, to subdivide the Contents into' more distinctive heads of subjects, and to somewhat alter general arrangement of same. The “Military and Naval” portion has been omitted, and a separate Catalogue of works in those branches of science can now be supplied.
This edition embraces all the more recent works, English, French, and American, published up to present date, and is the most complete Catalogue of Scientific Works ever issued in this country.
In so extensive a collection it is impossible to be able to supply at all times every work quoted. Parties ordering will please state, therefore, in case their order cannot be filled entire, if they do not wish it kept on file, as otherwise our rule is to complete the order as soon as
we are able.
The titles of certain books, which may be out of print and scarce, have been in most instances retained. Such works will be supplied when we have copies on hand at the lowest rates.
Importations of special works, not found in the Catalogue, will be carefully attended to.
Books for Colleges, Public Libraries, and Institutions, imported free of duty.
