Exeter College, Oxford. Assisted BY COLONEL RAWLINSON, C.B., AND SIR J. G. WILKINSON, F.R.S.,

4 Vols. 8vo. The translation itself has been undertaken from a conviction of the entire inadequacy of any existing version to the wants of the time. The gross unfaithfulness of Beloe, and the extreme unpleasantness of his style, render his translation completely insufficient in an age which dislikes affectation and requires accuracy ; while the only other complete English versions which exist are at once too close to the original to be perused with any pleasure by the general reader, and also defective in respect of scholarship.

XXVI.
HANDBOOK OF CHRONOLOGY.

ALPIIABETICALLY ARRANGED TO FACILITATE REFERENCE.

One Volume. 8vo. This book may be regarded as a condensed English version of the celebrated French work, “L'Art de Verifier les Dates," reduced to a more practical, alphabetical arrangement, but drawn from original sources.

It will enable the student or general reader, or man of the world, to put his finger at once upon the date of any particular event by means of a careful alphabetical classified arrangement of the various elaborate chronologies which have been given to the world. It has been prepared with such care as will render it-it is hoped-a trustworthy book of reference.

It contains the dates of the events which mark the rise, progress, decline, and fall of states; and the changes in the fortunes of nations. Alliances, wars, battles, sieges, and treaties of peace; geographical discoveries, the settlement of colonies, and their subsequent story ;-with all occurrences of general historic interest—are recorded in it. It further includes the years of the leading ineidents in the lives of men eminent for worth, knowledge, rank, or fame ; and of the writings, &c., &c., by which they aro chiefly known ; discoveries in every department of science; and inventions and improvements, mechanical, social, domestic, and economical.
