ONLY A FEW COPIES REMAINING.

The Attention of the Friends and Promoters of Scriptural Education is respectfully solicited to the following very flattering Literary Notices of THE GOSPEL CHART.

"I believe your arrangements are perfectly in accordance with the principles of my Harmony.

"It is unavoidable in a scheme like that of your Chart, that it appears at first sight crowded and complex by the multitude of its details; followed up, however, by the aid of the Key, it becomes simple and distinct; and I have no doubt, when once studied and understood, will be thought to have realized your proposed object, as well as any thing of the kind that could have been attempted."Extracts of a Letter received by R. Mimpriss, from the Rev. Edward Greswell, B.D., &c. &c.

"This Chart forms a new era in Scriptural education. It is by works like this that the teacher is very powerfully aided, and something more than the ear and memory of the pupil will be exercised. Here we can follow the track of the Saviour; we can traverse with the eye the path which he so patiently traversed for us; and when we arrive at the scene of some act of Divine benevolence, we see before us, with as much truth and reality as the mind of man is able to conceive it, the representa tion of the very act, on the very spot, which was hallowed by a Saviour's footsteps. The divine, the student, the Christian, with its assistance, will gain a clear conception of every act and of every movement of our Lord and Master, so far as human teaching can be of service. With such an aid to the work of instruction, the teacher may deliver lectures to his more advanced pupils, and frame easy lessons for his juveniles. The period, the situation, the pictured event, are all before their eyes. The historical portion is read, explained, improved, and easily understood; and we will boldly

assert, that without it no school-room is so completely furnished as it ought to be. The Key to the Chart is superior to most works of the kind, and is enriched by copious extracts from Greswell's Dissertations on his Harmonia Evangelica.'"-Doncaster Gazette, August 2, 1833.

"This Chart is really not only very beautiful, but very useful. This Chart brings each journey before the eye, and nothing can more effectually fix things in the mind. And when to great beauty of execu tion, one feels that he can safely add the praise of high accuracy, as far as learning, like Mr. Greswell's can insure it, nothing more need be said on the merit of the work."-British Mag. Feb. 7, 1834.

"It forms a most valuable auxiliary in the leeture-room, and a useful assistant in the study of divinity." Rev. Thomas Hartwell Horne's Intg. duction, p. 356, vol. ii.

"It would be unjust not to spare one line for mentioning the splendidly elaborated Chart of Mr. Mimpriss, a work of vast, and we hope of well re paid, toil."-Theological Review for April, 1834.

"We should like to see this Chart ornamenting the walls of some of our large Sunday Schoolsindeed of all places of instruction. They would thus reap all the valuable benefit it is so eminently calculated to impart."-Sunday School Teache Magazine, July, 1834.

"This work, splendid, elaborate, and beautiful in a high degree, has been already widely circulated: and we cannot but wish that this brief notice y render it more extensively known."—Baptist Mag zine for October, 1834.

"The Pictorial Chart referred to is one of the

most remarkable works of the kind that the age has produced. It is admirably adapted to the use of the study and the school, and we most

sincerely wish the author adequate encouragement."-Wesleyan Methodist Magazine, November, 1834.

INDIVIDUAL TESTIMONIALS.

CARPENTER, Rev. Dr., Isle of Man, July 27, 1842. "I have used your Charts of the New Testament History,' in teaching my Sunday School class, and, in my opinion, they are calculated to give, both to teachers and pupils, a more connected and lasting view of the History, than they could obtain by any other mode of instruction I am acquainted with."

CLOSE, Rev. F., A.M., Cheltenham, December 2, 1833.-"I beg to add my testimony in favour of the above happily-conceived and well-executed plan of scriptural instruction."

DALE, Rev. Thomas, M.A., Rector of St. Bride's,

Fleet Street, Nov. 1834.-" I entirely concur in the sentiments of my respected friends, Messrs. Fenn and Sheppard, as to the utility and excellence of Mr. Mimpriss's Chart."

FENN, Rev. Joseph, Blackheath, Nov. 12, 1834.-"I have much pleasure in recommending Mr. Mimpriss's Map, Harmony, and Skeleton Charts, which I think are likely to be very useful indeed to the young, as affording much information, and exciting great interest, and strongly recommend them."

GENESTE, Rev. M., West Cowes, Isle of Wight, February 22, 1833.-"It gives me pleasure to express my entire satisfaction with your beautifully executed and most instructive Chart, which I have watched with much interest from its first commencement; and I trust it will meet with that patronage from the public which it so well deserves."

HENSMAN, Rev. John, Clifton, April 30, 1833.-"I am happy to express my convietion that the work of Mr. Mimpriss is highly deserving of patronage." HODGSON, Rev. W., Croscombe Rectory, December 3, 1833. "I am very glad to testify of the interest which your Chart and Harmonized View of the Gospel History afford to my own mind: I think I can trace to them very much of the interest which is given to my catechetical instructions, in

the appointed Gospels of our Sunday service; for while all alike are pleased with the Pictorial Delineation,' pupil and instructor are alike instructed by comparing the spiritual things of each inspired narrative."

LANE, Rev. Charlton, M.A., St. Mark's, Kennington, Jan. 2, 1835.-"I consider your Historical Map of our Blessed Saviour's ministry as promising to be eminently useful to every student, literate or illiterate, who may wish to methodize his knowledge of the Gospel History, as impressions made through the eye have almost always that ad

vantage."

NUNNS, Rev. Thomas, M. A., Birmingham, August 31, 1836.-" For the last two months, I have been in the habit of connecting the study of Mr. Mimpriss's Chart of the Gospels with my reading of the New Testament, and find it extremely useful in giving a clear view of the succession of the events of our Saviour's history, and deem it a great acquisition to a biblical library." PAGE, Rev. Thomas, A.M, St. Paul's, December 2, 1833. "I entirely concur in the foregoing testimonies to the value of Mr. Mimpriss's beautifully executed Chart of the Evangelical Histories, and shall be glad to see another of the Acts of the Apostles got up with equal ability and in the same style."

STOWELL, Rev. Hugh, M.A., Christ Church, Salford, December 22, 1835.-"I have for some time been possessed of Mr. Mimpriss's Pictorial Chart, and esteem it highly, as instructive to the young, and indeed useful for all."

WILLIS, Rev. W. D., Lecturer of Walcot, Bath.-"I very much approve of Mr. Mimpriss's Pictorial Chart of the Gospel History, and think it well deserving of the patronage of the public."

Also, from numerous Clergymen, &c., in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dublin, Belfast, and in every part of the kingdom.

Mr. Mimpriss has also much pleasure

DEAR SIR,-We are perfectly satisfied that they
are calculated to be highly useful; and have placed
the School Charts and Keys on our Catalogue for
supplying the Schools on our Foreign Missions:
and if the announcement of this fact will be of any
service to you, you are at liberty to make use of it.

In a short time we shall order a number for the immediate supply of some of our Schools. Wishing you much success in your undertaking for the elucidation of Scripture History and the Instruction of the Young,-I am, yours, very truly,

Leeds, March 6, 1843.

"I write to request you to send me 25 copies more of your Gospel History with the map enclosed. I am happy to tell you that my class of teachers is in a very satisfactory state. All my teachers almost without exception avail themselves of the opportunity on the Sabbath afternoon, when I go through the Scripture lesson in the method laid down in your lecture, viz.-History-Meaning of Words-Geography-Prophetic Testimony-Historical and Gospel Parallels-Doctrine and Practical Use. The lesson thus acquired by the teachers is taught on the following Sabbath afternoon in all the classes, and I elicit by questions, at the close of the school,

in adding the following:

(in a catechetical form) the result; with which I have been highly gratified hitherto; and indeed as to my own improvement I find it operates beneficially." (Signed) J. M. BRIGG,

One of the Superintendents of Oxford Place
Chapel Methodist Sunday School.

Southampton, March 4, 1842. DEAR SIR,-It is now about three months since the Sunday School Society connected with the Chapel above Bar, in this town, introduced into all their schools your new and admirable system.

Unwilling to express any opinion on this new mode of communicating instruction until it had been fairly tried, we feel that, having made that trial, it is our duty to state, that we most cordially recommend its general adoption to Sabbath School instruction.

Our teachers feel an increasing interest; the children are as much pleased as on the first Sabbath on which the maps were introduced to them; and we may be permitted to mention, the great inducement we have now to study the Scriptures, and elucidate them, by a reference to your ingeniously constructed maps, is by no means a feature of minor importance.

Most sincerely, therefore, do we, on behalf of ourselves and fellow-teachers, wish you every success in promoting an extensive use of your various publications, all of which, that we have had the privilege of seeing, are most useful to Sunday School teachers, and if adopted in Sabbath School instruc tion, will be the means, under the Divine influence, rising generation of conferring a great and lasting benefit on the

* Classes of 12 or 14 can conveniently use the "Tablet Lessons," while by the old system of reading in books a teacher finds six or eight the greatest number he can profitably attend to; hence the saving of labour must be obvious; and experience will abundantly prove their vast superiority, in service, over Lesson Books.
