LEMON, AND HEBREWS.-Translated and
Edited by Drs. Harwood and Washburne, ProfesMARK AND LUKE.-Translated and Edited by Prof. sors Kendrick, Hackett, and Day, and the late Dr.
W.G. T. Shedd, D.D., Philip Schaff, D.D., and Rev. John Lillie.
THE EPISTLES GENERAL OF JAMES, PETER, ACTS.--Translated and Edited by Charles F. Schaffer, JOHN, AND JUDE.-Translated and Edited by D.D.
J. Isidor Mombert. LANGE'S COMMENTARY is universally regarded as the greatest biblical work of the age. The German edition embodies the results of the labors of the most earnest and profound Christian Scholars of the Continent; and the American translation, which is in progress, under the supervision of Dr. PHILIP SCHAFF, aided by a large corps of our own most emineut and learned divines, is enriched by numerous and important additions which entitle it to be considered to a great extent as an original and independent work. That the undertaking has thus far been prosecuted in a spirit which elevates it above all sectarian or denominational considerations, is sufficiently proved by the fact that among the continental scholars, more than twenty of whom are engaged on the work, under Dr. LANGE's directi na, are representatives of all the different evangelical denominations of Germany and Holland, while the ecclesiastical connections of the contributors to the American edition are quite as diverse, as the following list shows : General Editor, Dr. PHILIP SCHAFF, Reformed.
CONTRIBUTORS. W.G. T. SHEDD, D.D., Presbyterian.

Such a combination of force as this has not been engaged upon any work, having for its aim tba elucidation of the Holy Scriptures, since the completion of the translation of King James' version of the Bible. LANGE's COMMENTART is, therefore, in all its departments—critical, doctrinal, and homiletical—far superior to any work of the kind erer published, and its value must steadily increase ; for many years must elapse before it can be superseded.
THE EIGHT VOLUMES already completed make in themselves a LIBRARY WHICH NO CLERGYMAN CAN DO WITHOUT if he aims to keep abreast of the times; while they are indispensable to SUNDAY-SCHOOL TEACHERS, and an invaluable aid to LAYMEN AND ALL BIBLICAL STUDENTS, without regard to profession Q7 deuomination.

"Ir MAY BE SAID TO TEACH NATURAL HISTORY THROUGH THE BIBLE, AND TO EXPLAIN THE
BIBLE THROUGH NATURAL HISTORY.”- London Gazette.
Being a Description of every Living Creature mentioned in
the Scriptures, from the Ape to the Coral.
By the Rev. J. G. WOOD, M.A., F.L.S., &c., Author of “HOMES WITHOUT Hands,” “ COMMON OBJECTS OF THE SRA-SHORE AND COUNTRY," &c.
With 100 new designs by W. F. Keyi, T. W. Woon, and E. A. SMITH.

This beautiful volume is one of the most attractive aids to the study of the Bible ever publishei Its author, who occupies the foremost place among living writers upon Natural History, has taken up, in its proper succession, every creature whose name is given in the Scriptures, and supplies so much of its history as will enable the reader to understand all the passages in which it is mentioned A general account of each animal is first given, embracing its habits, peuliarities, mode of life, and, where it is sought as game, the manner in which it is caught; and these particulars are followed by special explanations (whenever required) of those texts in which pointed reference is made to it, but of which the full force cannot be gathered without a knowledge of Natural Uistory. The illustrations, which are numerous, are from designs by the best English artists, and are executed in the finest style of wood engraving. They are, moreover, all taken from the living animals, while the accessory details have been obtained either from the Egyptian or Assyrian monuments, from actual specimens, or from the photographs and drawings of the latest travellers. They have also been selected and arranged so that each illustration explains one or more passages of Scripture. While the work is one of the most entertaining and profitable that can be placed in the hands of the young, it cannot fail to possess the greatest interest and value to the Natural Historian, and to the Biblical Student of mature years.
NOTICES OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. “No writer of our own day—nor of any previous time, so far as our recollection serves—has done so much to popularize Natural History as the author of Ilomes without lands.' Mr. Wood has the happy faculty of rendering his subject 'so attractive lyy his own method of dealing with it, and also by the aid he receives from the pencils of competent artists, that his books force themselves as a consequence into pablic notice, not alone as scientific treatises, but also as entertaining and instructive reading.”—London Art Journal.
" He gives his readers the latest results of the inquiries of travellers as well as of naturalists and linguists, and to those who have not been accustomed to seek the guidance of such an interpreter as Mír. Wood, it will be wonderful how much additional interest is given to the Scriptures by reading them with such a commentary.”-English Inute pendent.
" It is an excellent family book, and will be in constant requisition amongst Bible readers of all ages.”—The London Student.

The “UNIVERSE” is one of the most profusely and superbly illustrated works on Natural Tistory ever produced. A volume of about eight hundred pages, it contains nearly 350 engravings, large proportion full page; those which represent objects in nature having been drawn with the jost conscientious and painstaking accuracy, while those which are based upon subjects which give ny scope to the imagination, display that fertility of invention and skill which seems unattainable are by French artists. The engravings display the perfection of wood engraving, and in all its mehanical details the volume is exceedingly handsome. The letter-press, which has been translated rom the French of one of the most famous of living scientists, is written in a familiar and attractive tyle. The work, as the author says, “is not a Scientific Treatise, it is a simple Elementary Study, nade with the purpose of bringing the reader to seek in other works’ more extended and thorough knowledge." Beginning with the Animal Kingdom, the Invisible World, the Ocean Architects, Insects, Bird Architecture, &c., &c., are discussed; and under the Vegetable Kingdom very many curious facts reg ling the Anatomy and Physiology of Plants, Seed and its Germination, &c., are stated. In the fourth section, which treats of Geology, a familiar account of the Formation of the Globe is given, and this is followed by brief discussions upon Fossils, Mountains, Volcanoes and Larthquakes, and other natural phenomena; while in the concluding section there is a rapid survey of the Starry Universe. The volume is at once comprehensive in the range of the subjects discussed, and thoroughly accurate in the treatment of them, making it, in connection with the mechanical persection of its finish, one of the most attractive and valuable works of its class ever published.
NOTICES OF THE FRENCH PRESS. "THE UNIVERSE is an excellent work, and one which from its brilliant execution is destined long to pass from hand to hand, to live in the esteem of the studious and the learned, and to be cherished at the same time by those who do not belong to the ranks of science, but who are not repelled by a recreation agreeable, if somewhat serious." --Comptes Rendus de l'Exposition Universelle, 1867.
"With what grace and tenderness are the pages written in which M. POUCHET sets before us the life, the manners, and the customs of birds! M. MICHELET's work is not more charming; and families of joyous singers that shelter their loves in nests so cunningly and elegantly hidden amid leaves and flowers, have once more awoke an inspiration, grave or gay as the subject demands.”—M. OCTAVE LAROIX, in the Comptes Rendus de l'Exposition de 1867.
“ Under the pen of the learned naturalist, science is stripped of its dryness, and clothed in the mantle of poetry.”—LE Bon, in Le Courrier National.
"It reads like a romance of the Thousand and One Nights of nature.”—La Presse (Paris).
