THE SACRED CLASSICS; OR, LIBRARY OF DIVINITY.

VI.
BAXTER'S DYING THOUGHTS ; with an In-

troductory Essay, by the REV. H. STEBBING, M.A. "The present Treatise is one of the most practical Baxter ever wrote. Mr. Stebbing's Essay is the best that has yet appeared in the Sacred Classics ; it is really introductory to the important subject of Baxter's Treatise, and is in itself a very able and instructive piece of composition."-Scots Times.

VII.
JEREMY TAYLOR'S SELECT SERMONS.
With an Introductory Essay, by the REV. RICHARD

CATTERMOLE, B.D. " These are some of the most admirable productions of Bishop Taylor, whose genius is generally admitted to entitle him to one of the highest places among the preachers of the Church of England. Mr. Cattermole furnishes the Introductory Essay, which is chiefly a history of preaching from its rise with Christ and his apostles. He gives too a just description of the merits of the author from whose works he has selected the sermons which appear in this volume."-Leeds Mercury.

VIII.
THE ANALOGY OF RELIGION, Natural
and Revealed, to the Constitution and Course of
Nature: to which are added Two Brief Disserta-
tions. BY JOSEPH BUTLER, D.C.L. With a Me-
moir of the Author, by the Rev. GEORGE CROLY,

LL.D. “We highly approve the republication of one of the most subtle and refined volumes of philosophical reasoning that has ever been applied to the truth of religion.”-Gent's Mag.

DR. WATTS'S LYRIC POEMS. With a Bio

graphical Essay, by ROBERT SOUTHEY, Esq. L.L.D. “ Persons who are desirous of learning the mind of Dr. Watts, in the latter, but not the most felicitous part of his life, on the doctrine of the Trinity, may find in this memoir as much satisfaction as the painful subject is capable of affording. Dr. Southey has treated the matter with great judgment and candour."--Evangelical Register.

X. AND XI.
BEVERIDGE'S PRIVATE THOUGHTS. To
which is added, The NECESSITY OF FREQUENT
COMMUNION. With Introductory Essays, by the

REV. H. STEBBING, M.A. « The selection of these volumes is admirable; those which have already appeared are such as true Christians cannot willingly let die.' The Private

Thoughts on Religion and a Christian Life' of Bishop Beveridge, can scarcely be too much commended for the humility, the self-knowledge, and the deeply devotional feeling which pervade them, their able though brief vindication of the truth of Christianity, and their practical bearing."-Leeds Mer.

XII. AND XIII.
CAVE'S PRIMITIVE CHRISTIANITY. To
which are added, an Historical Account of Paganism
under the First Christian Emperors; and the Lives of
Justin Martyr and St. Cyprian. With an Introduc-
tory Essay, by the Rev. WM. TROLLOPE, M.A.;

Vicar of Great Wigston. “ If this volume alone had been rescued from the archives of past ages, the conductors would have deserved the thanks of every believer, for it is a most valuable book."-Cumberland Pacquet.

XIV.
ARCHBISHOP LEIGHTON'S EXPOSITIONS
OF THE CREED, THE LORD'S PRAYER,
AND THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, &c. &c.
With an Introductory Essay, by the Rev. J. PYE
Smith, D.D.

• The progress of the Library of Sacred Classics has been watched by us with sincere pleasure. It is gratifying to see members of the Establishment united with dissenting ministers in spreading the doctrines of orthodox Christianity. The names of Leighton and Dr. Pye Smith need no comment; but when we see them in catholic unity on the same title-page, we cannot avoid expressing our pleasure at such a convincing proof of Christian liberality."-Atheneum.

XV.
FIFTEEN SERMONS ON RETIREMENT,
SELF-DENIAL, RESIGNATION, &c. &c. With

TERMOLE, B.D.

“ Mr. Cattermole, one of the able Editors of this work, has shown great talent and good sense, as well as piety in his Introductory Essay to this volume. While enforcing reflection on the instability of this world, and a consequent regard to a future of immortal value, neither the Editor, nor the great authorities whom he

teous Providence has filled creation, if the created were only wise enough to use them for the best."--Lit. Gazette.

XVI.
FOURTEEN SERMONS ON THE RESUR-
ŘECTION, &c. &c. With an Introductory Essay,

by the REV. HENRY STEBBING, M.A. “ This is, beyond comparison, the best of the class of modern works of the kind to which it belongs. The selections have been judicious, and the Introductory Essays well written. If the Cabinet Library proceeds with the same spirit which has distinguished the first sixteen volumes, it will, when complete, prove an admirable compendium of select divinity."-Evangelical Magazine.

XVII.

Hammond. “ We are delighted to see the best Works of our most venerated divines, conformist and non-conformist, reproduced in so cheap and elegant a form, under such auspices; and we think that the publication deserves encouragement from all quarters. The design is unexceptionable; and nothing can be objected against the execution, either as respects the intrinsic value of the standard works themselves, or the catholic and liberal spirit which so obviously presides over the selection." Eclectic Revicw.

HOWE'S SELECT TREATISES. With a Me-
moir by THOMAS TAYLOR, author of The Life of
Cowper,' Memoirs of Bishop Heber,' and Memoirs

of John Howard, the Philanthropist.' “We look back upon our young days with mourning, yet without envy, when we see the advantages which students in divinity now enjoy for collecting, at a cheap rate, many of the most valuable theological publications which a few years back were to be found only in expensive libraries." -Christian Observer.

XXI.
SACRED POETRY OF THE SEVENTEENTH
CENTURY: including the whole of Giles Fletcher's
• Christ's Victory and Triumph,' with copious selec-
tions from Spenser, Davies, Sandys, P. Fletcher,
Wither, Bishop King, Quarles, Herbert, and Milton
With an Essay and Notes, by the Rev. R. CATTER-

MOLE, B.D.
“Mr. Cattermole evidently understands the injunction of Wordsworth,

With gentle hand Touch, for there is a spirit in the leaves.' and in this volume that spirit lives in every leaf, and every leaf is bright and fragrant as when to the breath of genius it first expanded its petals into the gracious light. The specimens of each poet are numerous and entire; so that from them, without any farther acquaintance with their works, the peculiar genius of each can be comprehended and felt.--The Introductory Essay is of great merit ; and will of itself declare the character of the Editorship of the Sacred Classics far better than any praise of ours, and induce many to purchase the whole series."-Blackwood's Mag. for November.

XXII. XXIII. AND XXIV.
