DEAN OF PETERBOROUGH.
*HE want of an Annotated Edition of the BIBLE, in handy
portions, suitable for school use, has long been felt; and the experience of the University Local Examinations has brought this want into greater prominence within the last few years.
In order to provide Text-books for School and Examination purposes, the CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS has arranged to publish the several books of the BIBLE in separate portions, at a moderate price, with introductions and explanatory notes.
The text of the Authorised Version as revised by Dr SCRIVENER in the Cambridge Paragraph Bible will be generally followed, the chapters and verses being marked in the margin.
The Very Reverend J. J. S. PEROWNE, D.D., Dean of Peterborough, has undertaken the general editorial supervision of the work, and will be assisted by a staff of eminent coadjutors. Some of the books have already been undertaken by the following gentlemen: Rev. A. CARR, M.A., late Fellow of Oriel College, Oxford, one of the
Masters of Wellington College. Rev. T. K. CHEYNE, M.A., Fellow of Balliol College, Oxford. Rev. S. Cox, Nottingham. Rev. A. B. DAVIDSON, D.D., Professor of Hebrew, Free Church College,
Edinburgh. Rev. F. W. FARRAR, D.D., Canon of Westminster, late Head Master
of Marlborough College. Rev. A. E. HUMPHREYS, M.A., Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. Rev. A. F. KIRKPATRICK, M.A., Fellow and Lecturer of Trinity
College, Cambridge. Rev. J. J. LIAS, M.A., Professor of English History and Modern
Literature, St David's College, Lampeter. Rev. J. R. LUMBY, B.D., Fellow and Lecturer of St Catharine's
College, Cambridge. Rev. G. F. MACLEAR, D.D., Head Master of King's College School,
