MARY LAMB. Fcap. 8vo., with woodcut initials, head and
tail pieces. Cloth, 35. 6d. “ Perhaps you will admire the number of subjects, all of children, picked out by an old bachelor, and an old maid. Many parents would not have found so many."-Charles Lamb to Coleridge.
"A book which bears the name of the greatest humourist of a famous epocb cannot but interest grown-up, if not young folk.”—The Times.
In various Bindings. From 6s. to 51. BISHOP KEN'S CHRISTIAN YEAR.
HYMNS AND POEMS FOR THE FESTIVALS AND HOLIDAYS OF THE CHURCH.
The simple piety of Ken's poetry rivals that of Herbert or Keble. His doctrinal soundness possesses an unchallenged reputation of 150 years.
His loyalty to the Church of England is undoubted, he with six other bishops having been the immediate instruments in preventing the establishment of the Roman Church in England under King James II.
Therefore the value and weight of the evidence which his Poems afford of the fact that the Church of England has ever held the doctrines of Baptismal Regeneration, Absolution, Penance, the Real Presence, the Assumption of Our Lady, and that St. Peter was the primus of the Catholic Church, cannot be over estimated.
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. “ Bishop Ken's Christian Year,' published by Mr. Pickering, is an exquisite edition of a book which would have been welcome in any shape. We are all familiar with the beautiful Morning and Evening Hymns. Full of beautiful thoughts, beautifully expressed."-The Times.
“ It is a praiseworthy collection, and one that is likely to find the favour it deserves." The Pall Mall Gazette.
“So quaint, yet so unaffected; so gentle, yet so free from effeminacy; so glowing to the core with the fire of genuine devotion.”—The Guardian.
"The great fulness with which Bishop Ken expresses those doctrines which are designated Romanizing in our day makes his • Christian Year' of much controversial value just now." -The Church Times.
“Eminently a devout English Churchman's book. It is especially valuable, too, at the present time, as claiming for the
extremer' tone of Catholicism among ourselves Anglican authority of so high a stamp."-The Church Review.
