MRS. MARSH'S ROMANTIC HISTORY OF THE HUGUENOTS. (Now Ready.)

HISTORY OF THE PROTESTANT REFORMATION IN FRANCE.

BY MRS. MARSH,

Author of "Two Old Men's Tales," "Emilia Wyndham," &c.
In two handsome volumes, royal 12mo., extra cloth.

"The object of this unpretending work has been to relate a domestic story, not 10 undertake a political his-
tory to display the virtues, errors, sufferings, and experiences of individual men- rather than the. affairs of
consistories or the intrigues of cabinets consequent upon the great struggle to diffuse the principles of the
Reformed Religion in France." AUTHOR'S PREFACB.

These two delightful volumes belong to the same class as Miss Pardoe's popular works on Francis
I. and Louis XIV., and may be regarded as companions to them, having the same characteristics
of extensive research, lively style, and entertaining interest, presenting all the authority and utility
of History, without the dryness and dulness which was formerly considered necessary to its dig-
nity. Mrs. Marsh's subject is one which gives full scope to her acknowledged powers, and she
has treated her romantic and varying story with all the skill that was to be expected of the author
of the " Two Old Men's Tales."

NARRATIVE OF THE UNlfED STATES 1 EXPEDITION

TO THE

DEAD SEA AftD RIVER JORDAIV.

BY W. F. LYNCH, U. S. N.,

Commander of the Expedition.

New and condensed edition, with a Map, from actual Surveys,

In one neat royal I2mo. volume, extra cloth.

The universal curiosity excited by the interesting narrative of this remarkable expedition, has induced
the author to prepare a condensed edition for popular use, which is now furnished at a very low price. In
preparing the former editions the object was to produce a work worthy in every respect of the national
character which it ns*umed, and no pains or expense was spared in bringing out a volume as handsome aa
anything of the kind as yet prepared in thi* country. The great demand, which has rapidly exhausted many
large impressions of this edition, notwithstanding its price, is a sufficient proof of the intrinsic value and in-
terest of the, work x anil in presenting this new and cheaper edition, the publishers would merely state that it
contains all the substance of the former volume, from the time the expedition reached Lake Tiberias till its
departure from Jerusalem, embracing all the explorations upon the river Jordan and the Dead Sea. Some
matter in the preliminary and eorcluding chapters has been omitted or condensed, and the two maps of the
former edition have boen reduced in one, preserving, however, all the more important features of the coun-
try described. In its present form, therefore, afforded at about one-third the price of the more costly issue,
in a neat and handsome volume, admirably adapted for parlor or fireside reading or for district echoo's,
sabbath schools, and other libraries, it should find a place in every house and collage in the land where
there is a copy of the Bible, or where there is any interest felt for the sacred regions now first accurately
surveyed and described.

To facilitate its acquisition by those who live at a distance from bookstores, or from the larger towns, the
publishers have prepared an edition in paper covers, suitable for mailing, which they will forward through
ttie Post-office. FRBK OF POSTAGE, on the receipt of ONE DOLLAR, by ma. I

This is a condensed nd cheap, yet very handsome edition of Lieut. Lynch's admirable Narrative of the
Expedition to the Dead Sea. The interest which was excited and gratified by the first publication of this
work, demanded that it should be placed in a form for more general circulation, and this demand is met in the
edition we have before u*. Of the work itself nothing need be said in its praise, the judgment of the public
having confirmed its excellence. It is a narrative that must have an abiding interest for all lime, and that
library that is without it is imperfect; as is the knowledge imperfect of the man who, however otherwise
verged in the subject it treats of, should be ignorant of the facts it details. We cannot dismiss the work with-
out saying that, apart from the absorbing interest which belongs to the subject, the author has given it a charm
in the easy, flowing, and correct style in which the narrative is written, that makes the reader reluctant,
when h^ has taken up the volume, to lay it down before it is finished, and which will cause him to return to
it again and again, with renewed interest and pleasure. Baltimore Patriot.

Copies may still be had of the FINE EDITION,

In one very large and handsome octavo volume,
With Twenty-eight beautiful Plates, and Two Maps.

This book, go long and anxiously expected, fully sustains the hopes of the most sanguine and fastidious.
It isiruly a magnificent work. The type, paper, binding, style, and execution, are all of the best and highest
fharacter, as are also the maps and engravings. It will do more to elevate the character of our national
literature than any work that has appeared for years. The intrinsic interest of the subject will give it popu-
larity and immortality at once. Jt must be read to be appreciated; and il will be read extensively, and
valued, both in this and other countries. Lady's Book.

DE 1A BECHE'S GEOLOGY (Just Ready.)

THE GEOLOGICAL OBSERVER.

BY SIR HENRY T. DE LA BECHE, C. B., F. R. 8.,

Director General of the (Geological Survey of Great Britain, &c.

In one very large and handsome octavo volume,
"WITH OVER THREE HUNDRED WOOD-CUTS.

We have here, presented to us, by one admirably qualified for the task, the most complete, compendium of
the science of Geoiopy ever produced, in which the different facts which fall under the cognizance of this
branch of naiura! science are arranged under the different causes by which they are produced. From the
ptyle in which the subject is treated, ihe work is calculated not only for the use of the professional geologist,
but for that of the uninitiated reader, who will find in it much curious and interesting information on the
changes which ihe surface of our globe has undergone, and the history of the various striking appearances
which it presents. Voluminous as the work is, it is not rendered unreadable from its bulk, owing to the ju-
dicious subdivision of its contents, and the copious index which is appended. John Bull.

This ample volume is based upon a former work of the author, called H w to Observe in Geology ; which
has long been out of print, but in its day gave rise to several other directions for observing. Tha alteration,
of the title is something more than a nominal change; it extends the book from the individual to the general
observer, showing what has been scientifically seen in the globe, instead of what an individual might see.
It is a survey of geological facts throughout the world, classified according to their nature. Sprctator.

Having had such abundant opportunities, no one could be found so capable of directing the labors of the
young geologist, or to aid by his own experience the studies of those who may not have been able to range
so extensively over the earth's surface. We strongly recommend Sir Henry De la Heche's book to those
who desire to know what has been done, and to learn something of the wide examination which yet lies
wailing for the industrious observer. The AihencBum.



CARPENTER'S COMPARATIVE PHYSIOLOGY (Just Ready.)

PRINCIPLES OF

GENERAL AND COMPARATIVE PHYSIOLOGY;

INTENDED AS AN INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY OF

BY WILLIAM B. CARPENTER, M.D.,F.R.S.,

Author of" Human Physiology," ''Vegetable Physiology," c. &c.

Third Improved and Enlarged Edition.

In one very large and handsome octavo volume, with several hundred beautiful illustrations.

This valuable work will supply a want long felt by the scientific public of this country, who
have had no accessible treatise to refer to, presenting in an intelligible form a complete and
thorough outline of this interesting branch of Natural Science, brought up to the most advanced
slate of modern investigation. The high reputation of the author, on both sides of the Atlantic,
is a sufficient guarantee for the completeness and accuracy of any work to which his name is pre-
fixed ; but this volume comes with the additional recommendation that it is the one on which the
author has bestowed the greatest care, and on which he is desirous to rest his reputation. Though
forming a very large octavo volume, beautifully printed, and most profusely illustrated, the price
will be very moderate.
