DR. ARNOLD'S WORKS.
THE HISTORY OF ROME, From the Earliest Period. Reprinted entire from the last English edition,
Two vols., 8vo. $500.
WEALTH. Two vols. of the English edition reprinted entire in 1 vol., 8vo. $2 50. “ The History of Rome will remain, to the latest age of he world, the most attractive, the most useful, and the most elevating subject of human contemplation. It must ever form the basis of a liberal and enlightened education, and present the most important subject to the contemplation of the statesman. It is remarkable, that until the appearance of Dr® Arnold's volumes, no history, (except Niebuhr’s, whose style is often obscure) of this wonderful people existed, commensurate either to their dignity, their importance, or their intimate connection with modern institutions. In the preparation and composition of the history, Dr. Arnold expended many long years, and bent to it the whole force of his great energies. It is a work to which the whole culture of the man, from boyhood, contributed-most carefully and deeply meditated, pursued with all the ardor of a labor of love, and relinquished only with life. Or the conscientious accuracy, industry, and power of mind, which the work evinces—its clearness, dignity, and vigor of composition-it would be needless to speak. It is eminently calculated to delight and instruct both the student and the miscellaneous reader."- Boston Courier.

Edited, with a Preface and Notes, by Henry Reed, M. A., Prof. of English Literature in the University of Pa. 12mo. $1 25. “The Lectures are eight in number, and furnish the best possible introduction to a philosophical study of inodern history. Prof. Reed has added greatly to the worth and interest of the volume, by appending to each lecture such extracts from Dr. Arnold's other writings as would more fully illustrate its prominent points. The notes and appendix which he has thus furnished are exceedingly valuable.”—Courier and Enquirer.
