Third Edition. Post 8vo, pp. xv.-250, cloth, price 7s. 6d. OUTLINES OF THE HISTORY OF RELIGION TO THE SPREAD OF THE UNIVERSAL RELIGIONS.

By C. P. TIELE,
Doctor of Theology, Professor of the History of Religions in the

University of Leyden. Translated from the Dutch by J. ESTLIN CARPENTER, M. A. "Few books of its size contain the result of so much wide thinking, able and laborious study, or enable the reader to gain a better bird's-eye view of the latest results of investigations into the religious history of nations. As Professor Tiele modestly says, ' In this little book are outlines-pencil sketches, I might say-nothing more.' But there are some men whose sketches from a thumb-nail are of far more worth than an enormous canvas covered with the crude painting of others, and it is easy to see that these pages, full of information, these sentences, cut and perhaps also dry, short and clear, condense the fruits of long and thorough research."-Scotsman.

THE LIFE OF THE BUDDHA AND THE EARLY

HISTORY OF HIS ORDER.
Derived from Tibetan Works in the Bkah-hgyur and Bstan-hgyur.

Followed by notices on the Early History of Tibet and Khoten. Translated by W. W. ROCKHILL, Second Secretary U.S. Legation in China.

“The volume bears testimony to the diligence and fulness with which the author has consulted and tested the ancient documents bearing upon his remarkable subject.” Times.

“ Will be appreciated by those who devote themselves to those Buddhist studies which have of late years taken in these Western regions so remarkable a development. Its matter possesses a special interest as being derived from ancient Tibetan works, some portions of which, here analysed and translated, have not yet attracted the attention of scholars. The volume is rich in ancient stories bearing upon the world's renovation and the origin of castes, as recorded in these venerable authorities." - Daily News.

Third Edition. Post 8vo, pp. viii.-464, cloth, price 16s. THE SANKHYA APHORISMS OF KAPILA,

With Illustrative Extracts from the Commentaries. Translated by J. R. BALLANTYNE, LL.D., late Principal of the Benares

College.

Edited by FITZEDWARD HALL. “The work displays a vast expenditure of labour and scholarship, for which students of Hindoo philosophy have every reason to be grateful to Dr. Hall and the publishers.”—Calcutta Review.

In Two Volumes, post 8vo, pp. cviii. –242, and viii.-370, cloth, price 248.

Dedicated by permission to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales. BUDDHIST RECORDS OF THE WESTERN WORLD, Translated from the Chinese of Hiuen Tsiang (A.D. 629).

BY SAMUEL BEAL, B.A., (Trin. Coll., Camb.); R.N. (Retired Chaplain and N.I.); Professor of Chinese,

University College, London ; Rector of Wark, Northumberland, &c. An eminent Indian authority writes respecting this work :-"Nothing more can be done in elucidating the History of India until Mr. Beal's translation of the ‘Si-yu-ki' appears."

“It is a strange freak of historical preservation that the best account of the condition of India at that ancient period has come down to us in the books of travel written by the Chinese pilgrims, of whom Hwen Thsang is the best known."— Times.

“We are compelled at this stage to close our brief and inadequate notice of a book for easy access to which Orientalists will be deeply grateful to the able translator." Literary World.

THE ORDINANCES OF MANU.
Translated from the Sanskrit, with an Introduction.

By the late A. C. BURNELL, Ph.D., C.I.E.
Completed and Edited by E. W. HOPKINS, Ph.D.,

of Columbia College, N.Y. “This work is full of interest; while for the student of sociology and the science of religion it is full of importance. It is a great boon to get so notable a work in so accessible a form, admirably edited, and competently translated.”—Scotsman.

Few men were more competent than Burnell to give us a really good translation of this well-known law book, first rendered into English by Sir William Jones. Burnell was not only an independent Sanskrit scholar, but an experienced lawyer, and he joined to these two important qualifications the rare faculty of being able to express his thoughts in clear and trenchant English. . We ought to feel very grateful to Dr. Hopkins for having given us all that could be published of the translation left by Burnell,”—F. Max MÜLLER in the Academy.
