XVIJI SERMONS on the DOCTRINES and DUTIES of CHRISTIANITY, by Miss BOWDLER, 18mo. 3s. ; large paper, 4s.

“ To attempt to praise these exquisitely simple, pious, and truly Christian Discourses, after they have enjoyed favour with the ('hristian world for so many years, and passed through so many editions, would be a work of supererogation. We may, however, be permitted to observe that they appear to have been in equal esteem with the learned and unlearned, though professedly addressed to the latter class. Bishop Tomline, to whom they are inscribed, and into whose hands they came anonymously, supposing they were the production of some pious divine, and not of Miss Bowdler, is reported to have said, that if he knew the author, he would give him a living and he also recommended them to those whom he ordained.

It is difficult to read and admire any work without feeling considerable interest in the author personally. From admiring the production of the mind, we insensibly glide into feelings of regard for the person, and all that concerns the writer who has afforded us so much gratification; and it is some consolation, when he himself has quitted the stage, to contemplate, with feelings of respect, and almost of adoration, the birth-place of our unknown friend. With regard, however, to the author whose works are contained in this volume, we have no such advantage. His works are nearly the only monument of his existence. It is remarkable that even his birth-place is not known, and from the time already elapsed since his death, we may now fairly suppose that it will never be ascertained.

It appears that he was born in 1695, and was educated at Westminster, being admitted on the foundation in 1710. He proceeded from thence to Trinity College, Cambridge, of which he afterwards became Fellow. He finally accepted the situation of usher in the Westminster school, in which office he died on the 2nd of December, 1747.
