1. BIBLIOTHECA SACRA in binos syllabos distincta. Quorum prior, qui jam tertio auctior prodiit, omnes sive Textus Sacri sive Versionum ejusdem quâvis linguâ expressarum editiones, necnon præstantiores MSS. Codices, cum notis historicis continet: Posterior vero continet omnia eorum opera quivis idiomate conscripta, qui huc usque in Sacram Scripturam ediderunt, simul collecta, tum ordine alphabetico disposita, tum serie sacrorum librorum. Huic coronidis loco subjiciuntur Grammatica et Lexica Linguarum præsertim orientalium, quæ ad illustrandas sacras paginas aliquid adjumenti conferre possunt. Labore et industria Jacobi LE LONG. Parisiis, 1723, 2 tomis folio.
The third and best edition of a most laborious work. The first edition appeared at Paris in 1709, in 2 vols. 8vo.: the second, at -Leipsic, in the same year, with additions by C. F. Boerner.
2. Discours Historique sur les principales Editions des Bibles Polyglottes. Par l'Auteur de la Bibliothèque Sacrée. [Jacques LE LONG.] Paris, 1713. 8vo.
3. Bibliotheca Sacra post Jacobi Le Long et C. F. Boerneri iteratas curas ordine disposita, emendata, suppleta, continuata ab Andrea Gottlieb MASCH. Halæ, 1774-1797. 5 vols. 4to. frequently bound in two thick volumes.
This elaborate work, which was discontinued for want of adequate support, is confined to the printed editions of the Holy Scriptures. Part I. contains editions of the original Hebrew and Greek text. Part II., in three volumes treats on the Greek, Oriental, and Latin versions, and on editions of them; and the last volume comprises a supplement to the preceding volumes.
We have been largely indebted to this publication for much information concerning the printed editions of the Old and New Testament. To this valuable work the Bibliotheca Biblica Serenissimi Wuertembergensium Ducis, olim Lorkiana, published by J. G. C. Adler, at Altona, in 1787 (in five parts forming two quarto volumes), is an indispensable supplement. It is very justly characterized by Bp. Marsh as "a catalogue of great merit and utility," and contains notices of some versions and translators, which have escaped even the researches of Dr. Masch.
4. CALMET (Augustin) Bibliotheca Sacra, or a Catalogue of the best books that can be read in order to acquire a good understanding of the Scripture. Folio.
This catalogue fills a considerable portion of a volume in the various French editions of Calmet's Dictionary of the Bible. It also occupies two hundred and eighty-four pages of the third volume of the English translation of that Dictionary, in folio. It contains copious notices of the earlier biblical critics and commentators, and other writers on Scriptural Antiquities, &c. This valuable catalogue is omitted in the quarto edition of Calmet's Dictionary, published by the late Mr. C. Taylor.
5. Joh. Christophori WOLFII Bibliotheca Hebræa; sive Notitia tum Auctorum Hebræorum cujuscumque ætatis, tum Scriptorum, quæ vel Hebraice primum exarata, vel ab aliis conversa sunt, ad nostram ætatem deducta. Accedit in calce Jacobi Gaffarelli Index Codicum Cabbalistic. MSS. quibus Joh. Picus, Mirandulanus Comes, usus est. Hamburgi et Lipsia, 1715
33. 4 tomis, 4to.
6. Jo. Georgii WALCHII Bibliotheca Theologica Selecta, literariis adnotationibus instructa. Jenæ, 1757-8-62-65. 4 vols. 8vo.
All who are conversant in sacred literature have borne willing testimony to the correctness and research of Walch, whose work will always remain a production, admirable for the diligence and for the extensive reading and accuracy which it evinces. The sound judgment, remarkable in other works of this theologian, is conspicuous in this publication. All possible aids for theological literature are here embraced. The whole is well arranged: with regard to many books, their contents and value are stated, and directions are given where more extensive information is to be
obtained. Of many important works an extensive and accurate literary history is given. All departments of theology have a rich materials are furnished for the history of religion. The third and collection of books pertaining to them described, and abundant fourth volumes are chiefly interesting to biblical students. How much the author of the present work is indebted to the Bibliotheca Theologica Selecta, the frequent references made to it will sufficiently attest. In 1770, Walchius published a Bibliotheca Patristica in one large volume 8vo.: it contains an excellent account of treatises on the lives and erudition of the Fathers of the Church, and on the editions of their writings.
7. A Concise View of the Succession of Sacred Literature, from the Invention of Alphabetical Characters to the Year of our in a Chronological Arrangement of Authors and their Works, Lord 1445. By Adam CLARKE, LL.D. and J. B. B. CLARKE,
M.A. London, 1831-32. 2 vols. 8vo.
345, was published by Dr. Clarke in 1821, in one volume, 12mo. The first part of the first volume, which comes down to A.D. The remainder of the work was composed by his son, the Rev. J. B. B. Clarke. The whole contains much important information relative to biblical and ecclesiastical literature.
8. A Course of Lectures, containing a Description and Systematic Arrangement of the several Branches of Divinity, accompanied with an Account both of the principal Authors and of the Progress which has been made, at different Periods, in Theological Learning. By Herbert MARSH, D.D. [Bishop of Peterborough.] London, 1810-1823. 8vo.
Seven parts of these Lectures have been published. They embrace almost every topic of Biblical Criticism and Interpretation, and also the genuineness, authenticity, and credibility of the Scriptures; and are particularly valuable for their bibliographical and critical notices of the principal writers who have treated on these subjects.
8.* Lectures on the Criticism and Interpretation of the Bible, with two preliminary Lectures on Theological Study and Theological Arrangement: to which are added two Lectures on the History of Biblical Interpretation. By Herbert MARSH, D.D. Bishop of Peterborough. London, 1828. 8vo.
This is a new edition, revised, corrected, and enlarged, of the first four parts of the preceding course of Lectures. The two additional Lectures on the History of Biblical Interpretation, which were published separately, contain bibliographical notices of the principal writers on that subject.
9. Illustrations of Biblical Literature, exhibiting the History and Fate of the Sacred Writings, from the earliest Period to the present Century: including Biographical Notices of Translators and other eminent Biblical Scholars. By the Rev. James TOWNLEY [now D.D.]. London, 1821. 3 vols. 8vo.
"The ample volumes before us comprise a rich fund of instructive and pleasing information on the subject of Sacred Bibliography. They have been compiled from a great variety of publications, many of them inaccessible to the generality of readers, and some of them of extreme rarity."... "The industry and the accuracy of Mr. Townley will entitle his volumes to the approbation of the critic and the patronage of the public. They afford a more comprehensive view of the progress of biblical translations and of the Literary and Ecclesiastical History of the Holy Scriptures than is to be found in any other work." (Eclectic Review, N. S. vol. xviii. pp. 386. 407.)
10. An Introduction to the Literary History of the Bible. By James Townley, D.D. London, 1828. 12mo.
This handsomely executed volume, which is a second edition of the Biblical Anecdotes published by Dr. Townley in 1813, may be considered as an epitome of his Illustrations of Biblical Literature. It contains many interesting anecdotes relative to the Literary History of the Scriptures from the earliest period to the commence. ment of the nineteenth century.
