AN ANCIENT HISTORY, from the EARLIEST TIMES to the FALL OF THE WESTERN EMPIRE: forming the First Period of the "History of the World." By PHILIP SMITH, B.A., One of the Principal Contributors to Dr. Smith's Classical Dictionaries. Complete in 3 vols. 8vo., with Maps and Plans, cloth lettered, 42s.

For the first time in English literature, the reader has before him, in the moderate compass of Three Volumes, a complete ANCIENT HISTORY, from the Creation of the World to the Fall of the Western Empire of Rome, treated as a continuous narrative, and with unity of purpose. Besides its place in the whole scheme of the History of the World, this division may be regarded as forming a complete and independent work, which may occupy the place once filled by the Ancient History of Rollin.

"The style of the volumes is sustained with the equal tone of a single, able, unimpassioned and dignified historian throughout."—Â thenæum.

"Which ought, we consider, to find a place in every School Library, and indeed it is difficult to say what Library will not be the better for it. All that our respected old Rollin tried to do, and did not do, this clear and most wonderfully compassed summary must be admitted to have done, and a great deal more besides. It is always careful, always well written, often warms into the steady heat of a real living interest, and is pervaded with a profound belief in the Providential guidance of all the events of history."-Literary Churchman.

"The three volumes of the present work now published may be considered as forming a complete and independent text-book of Ancient History, well fitted to occupy the place once filled by the Ancient History of Rollin."-Educational Times.

"This will be a very convenient class-book for junior students in private schools. It is intended to convey, in clear and precise terms, general notions of all the principal divisions of Physical Science, illustrated largely by diagrams. These diagrams exhibit the forms and arrangement of apparatus, and the manner of performing the most important experiments."-British Quarterly Review.

"This work of Baron Liebig is one of those books from which the mind desiring healthy philosophical instruction can receive it, in a most pleasant and yet most perfect form. There is no necessity for an acquaintance with all the intricacies of scientific nomenclature and terminology; with a moderate amount of chemical knowledge as a basis, no man of ordinary intellect will rise from the perusal of these Letters without the feeling that he has partaken of a wholesome intellectual feast."-British Medical Journal.

"This and the preceding volumes of Dr. Lardner's Handbook occupy a remarkable place in literature. While on the one hand they are examples of the extreme simplification of which the statement of the laws by which natural phenomena are regulated is capable, on the other they are illustrations of the care and method with which the true philosopher invariably treats the truths of Science."-Mechanics' Magazine.

"The 'Museum of Science and Art' is the most valuable contribution that has ever been made to the scientific instruction of every class of society."-Sir David Brewster in the North British Review.

"The whole work, bound in six double volumes, costs but the price of a Keepsake; and whether we consider the liberality and beauty of the illustrations, the charm of the writing, or the durable interest of the matter, we must express our belief that there is hardly to be found among the new books, one that would be welcomed by people of so many ages and classes as a valuable present."Examiner.
