TWO FORMS OF PRAYER OF THE TIME OF QUEEN ELIZABETH. Now First Reprinted. Demy Octavo. 6d. "From Collections and Notes' 18671876, by W. Carew Hazlitt (p. 340), we learn that A very remarkable volume, in the original vellum cover, and containing 25 Forms of Prayer of the reign of Elizabeth, each with the autograph of Humphrey Dyson, has lately fallen into the hands of my friend Mr H. Pyne. It is mentioned specially in the Preface to the Parker Society's volume

of Occasional Forms of Prayer, but it had been lost sight of for 200 years.' By the kindness of the present possessor of this valuable volume, containing in all 25 distinct publications, I am enabled to reprint in the following pages the two Forms of Prayer supposed to have been lost."-Extract from the PREFACE,

with the richest lights of meditative genius... He was one of those rare thinkers in whom largeness of view, and depth, and wealth of poetic and speculative insight, only served to evoke more fully the religious spirit, and while he drew the mould of his thought from Plotinus, he vivified the substance of it from St Paul."-Principal TULLOCH, Rational Theology in England in the 17th Century.

POEMS OF BEHÁ ED DÍN ZOHEIR OF EGYPT. With a Metrical Translation, Notes and Introduction, by E. H. PALMER, M.A., Barrister-at-Law of the Middle Temple, Lord Almoner's Professor of Arabic and Fellow of St John's College in the University of Cambridge. 3 vols. Crown Quarto.

metre, for imitation, either designed or unconscious, of the style of several of our own poets, these versions deserve high praise. .... We have no hesitation in saying that in both Prof. Palmer has made an addition to Oriental literature for which scholars should be grateful; and that, while his knowledge of Arabic is a sufficient guarantee for his mastery of the original, his English compositions are distinguished by versatility, command of language, rhythmical cadence, and, as we have remarked, by not unskilful imitations of the styles of several of our own favourite poets, living and dead.”—Saturday Review.

Vol. II. ENGLISH TRANSLATION. "Professor Palmer's activity in advancing Arabic scholarship has formerly shown itself in the production of his excellent Arabic Grammar, and his Descriptive Catalogue of Arabic MSS. in the Library of Trinity College, Cambridge. He has now produced an adinirable text, which illustrates in a remarkable manner the flexibility and graces of the language he loves so well, and of which he seems to be perfect master.... The Syndicate of Cambridge University must not pass without the recognition of their liberality in bringing out, in a worthy form, so important an Arabic text. It is not the first time that Oriental scholarship has thus been wisely subsidised by Cambridge."-Indian Mail.

"It is impossible to quote this edition without an expression of admiration for the perfection to which Arabic typography has been brought in England in this magnificent Oriental work, the production of which redounds to the imperishable credit of the University of Cambridge. It may be pronounced one of the most beautiful Oriental books that have ever been printed in Europe: and the learning of the Editor worthily rivals the technical get-up of the creations of the soul of one of the most tasteful poets of Islám, the study of which will contribute not a little to save honour of the poetry of the Arabs." MYTHOLOGY AMONG THE HEBREWS (Engl. Transl.), p. 194.

"This sumptuous edition of the poems of Behá-ed-dín Zoheir is a very welcome addition to the small series of Eastern poets accessible to readers who are not Orientalists. ... In all there is that exquisite finish of which Arabic poetry is susceptible in so rare a degree. The form is almost always beautiful, be the thought what it may. But this, of course, can only be fully appreciated by Orientalists. And this brings us to the translation. It is excellently well done. Mr Palmer has tried to imitate the fall of the original in his selection of the English metre for the various pieces, and thus contrives to convey a faint idea of the graceful flow of the Arabic. ..... Altogether the inside of the book is worthy of the beautiful arabesque binding that rejoices the eye of the lover of Arab art."-Academy.

THE AGAMEMNON OF AESCHYLUS. With a Translation in English Rhythm, and Notes Critical and Explanatory. By BENJAMIN HALL KENNEDY, D.D., Regius Professor of Greek. Crown Octavo, cloth.

"One of the best editions of the masterpiece of Greek tragedy."-Athenæum.

By numberless other like happy and weighty helps to a coherent and consistent text and interpretation, Dr Kennedy has approved himself a guide to Aeschylus of certainly peerless calibre."-Contemp. Rev.

"It is needless to multiply proofs of the value of this volume alike to the poetical translator, the critical scholar, and the ethical student. We must be contented to thank Professor Kennedy for his admirable execu


tion of a great undertaking."-Sat. Rev.

"Let me say that I think it a most admirable piece of the highest criticism..... I like your Preface extremely; it is just to the point."-Professor PALEY.

"Professor Kennedy has conferred a boon on all teachers of the Greek classics, by causing the substance of his lectures at Cambridge on the Agamemnon of Eschylus to be published...This edition of the Agamemnon is one which no classical master should be without."-Examiner.

OLYMPIAN AND PYTHIAN ODES. With Notes Explanatory and Critical, Introductions and Introductory Essays.

Edited by

C. A. M. FENNELL, M.A., late Fellow of Jesus College. Crown Octavo, cloth. 95.

"Mr Fennell deserves the thanks of all classical students for his careful and scholarly edition of the Olympian and Pythian odes. He brings to his task the necessary enthusiasm for his author, great industry, a sound judgment, and, in particular, copious and minute learning in comparative philology. To his qualifications in this last respect every page bears witness."-Athenæum.

"Considered simply as a contribution to the study and criticism of Pindar, Mr Fennell's edition is a work of great merit.

But it has a wider interest, as exemplifying the change which has come over the methods and aims of Cambridge scholarship within the last ten or twelve years. . . . The short introductions and arguments to the Odes, which for so discursive an author as Pindar are all but a necessity, are both careful and acute... Altogether, this edition is a welcome and wholesome sign of the vitality and de

velopment of Cambridge scholarship, and we are glad to see that it is to be continued."— Saturday Review.

"There are many reasons why Mr C. A. M. Fennell's edition of 'Pindar's Olympian and Pythian Odes;' should not go unnoticed, even though our space forbids doing it full justice; as a helpful complement and often corrective of preceding editions, both in its insight into comparative philology, its critical acumen, and its general sobriety of editing. In etymology especially the volume marks a generation later than Donaldson's, though holding in respect his brilliant authority. Most helpful, too, is the introductory essay on Pindar's style and dialect, while the chronological sequence of the Odes (pp. xxxi. xxxii.), and the 'Metrical Schemes," which immediately precede the text and commentary, leave nothing to be desiderated."Contemporary Review.
