DIES IN FRANCE. By the REV. J.

L. PETIT. With Illustrations from Draw-

ings by the Author and P. H. DELAMOTTE.

“Our notice of this work has been unavoid-

ably delayed until this season for handsome

and attractive books, and it would be difficult

to meet with a volume combining so many

first-rate illustrations with a subject worthy of

them. It is not only a splendid Christmas

book, but a really Christian book : for surely

& work conveying information and illustra-

tions relating to some of the finest specimens

of Christian temples, is entitled to be so cha-

racteriset. Mr. Petit is already well known

for his architectural works, which are justly

held in high estimation ; but if we recollect

right, this is the most elaborate and handsome

Churchman.

N THE STUDY OF LAN-

Diversions of Purley." By CHARLES

RICHARDSON, LL.D., Author of a New

Dictionary of the English Language.

" What an epoch in many a student's intel.

lectual life has been his first acquaintance

with the Diversions of Purley."" -Trench on

the Study of Words.

" The judicio''s endeavour of a veteran phi.

Jologist to extend the philosophical study of

language by p pularising Horne Tooke's

Diversions of Purly,' Dr. Richardson has

done good service to the study of language in

this very judicious and compact recast, for the

book is much more than an abridgment." -

Spectator.

GEORGE BELL, 186. Fleet Street.
