THE CONTINUOUS HISTORY OF THE LABOURS AND
WRITINGS OF ST. PAUL,

On the basis of THE ACTS, with Intercalary Matter of Sacred Narra-
tive, supplied from THE EPISTLES, and elucidated in occasional
Dissertations; with the "Hora Pauline" of Dr. Paley in a more
correct edition subjoined. By the Rev. JAMES TATE, M.A., Canon
Residentiary of St. Paul's. 1 vol. 8vo. with Map, 13s. cloth lettered.

"Mr. Tate takes the Hora Paulinæ as the basis of his work, and attempts to trace
the History of St. Paul from his conversion to his death; to follow him in his apostolic
progresses; and to complete, from detached passages in the Epistles, that narrative of
St. Paul's labours which, unhappily, is left unfinished in the beautiful history of St.
Luke. The whole forms a clear and connected history."
BRITANNIA.

"Our limits permit us merely to mention the contents of a volume which has cost
the author years of patient and painstaking investigation, and will, we are persuaded,
be appreciated by the Christian public, not merely as supplying an acknowledged
defect in the inestimable production of Dr. Paley, of which it is every way worthy, but
as affording, on its own independent merits, a very useful and valuable contribution
to our biblical literature."
SCOTTISH GUARDIAN.

ECCLESIASTICAL CHRONOLOGY;

sent Time: containing a View of General Church History, and the
Course of Secular Events; the limits of the Church, and its relation

Rev. J. E. RIDDLE, M.A., Author of "A Manual of Christian An-
tiquities," "A Latin-English Dictionary," &c. 8vo. 15s. cloth
lettered.

"We have read a good deal, and have tried and tested the author's accuracy in
various points, and, from the success with which he comes forth from the trial, we are
satisfied that where we have not examined he is trustworthy."---SCOTTISH GUARDIAN.
"We earnestly recommend it to the notice of all Students of Church History."

"Altogether it is one of the most luxurious as well as the most excellent works of
the kind recently published. It is worth a wilderness' of its gorgeous contemporaries
of the present season, the annuals, equalling them in external beauty, and far sur-
passing them in utility and agreeableness."---OBSERVER.

"The Sketches are all pleasantly written."---SUNDAY TIMES.

"Abounding in delightful details of rural life and rural amusements."---TIMES.

"The work of a genuine lover of the country, to whom its scenes are familiar as
every-day life. It is profusely illustrated with woodcuts, executed in a style to which
we thought wood-cutting could scarcely be brought... ... One of the most attractive
works ever published."---NEW SPORTING MAGAZINE.

A CATALOGUE OF WORKS IN ALL BRANCHES OF
EDUCATION;
