'It Is a very interesting and readable book.'—Athena um.

The author seems to have formed for himself an excellent plain notion of what a biography should be. Although he is clearly a man of intellectual tastes and accomplishments, and makes very good and strong remarks of his own, he restrains himself throughout from self-display—lctflng his father tell his own story wherever there is written material, supplementing this story with very exact recollections of what he had heard his father say, and for the rest, accumulating facta and narrating them simply, tersely, and yet very picturesquely. The book is full of fact, anecdote, incident, sketches of character, and good sayings well icported.'—The Header.

THE STUDENT'S MANUAL

OF

ANCIENT GEOGRAPHY.

By Eev. W. L. BEVAN, M.A.,

Vicar of Hay.

Edited By WILLIAM SMITH, LL.D.

%* This Work has been introduced into Eton and other public schools, and is

uniform with the 'Student's Hume,' 'Liddell's Borne,' 'Smith's Greece,'

and other works of the same Series.

THIS Manual presents in a systematic form and in a moderate compass, the most important results embodied in the 'Dictionary of Greek and Roman Geography.' The original work contains a great mass of information derived from the researches of modern travellers and scholars, which have not yet been made available for the purposes of instruction in our colleges and schools.

Besides adapting the larger work for a different class of readers, many valuable additions have been made, of which the most important are:—

1. A history of Geography in Antiquity, containing an account of the views of the Hebrews, as well as of the Greeks and Romans, illustrated by maps of the world as known to the poets, historians, and geographers.

2. A full account of Scriptural Geography.

3. Numerous quotations from the Greek and Roman poets, which either illustrate or are illustrated by the statements in the text.

Great pains have be^n taken to make the book as interesting as the nature of the subject would allow. The tedium naturally produced by an enumeration of political boundaries and topographical notices is relieved by historical and ethnographical discussions, while the numerous maps, plans, and other illustrations, give life and reality to the descriptions. The Retreat of the Ten Thousand Greeks, the Expedition of Alexander the Great, and similar subjects, are discussed and explained. It has been an especial object to supply information on all points required by the upper classes in the public scliools, and by students in the universities.
