Seite 63 - Post 8vo, pp. 276, cloth, 7s. 6d. RELIGION IN CHINA: Containing a Brief Account of the Three Religions of the Chinese, with Observations on the Prospects of Christian Conversion amongst that People. By JOSEPH EDKINS, DD, Peking. Third Edition. " We confidently recommend a careful perusal of the present work to all interested in this great subject.
Seite 207 - The country knows not yet, or in the least part, how great a son it has lost. It seems an injury that he should leave in the midst his broken task, which none else can finish, — a kind of indignity to so noble a soul, that he should depart out of Nature before yet he has been really shown to his peers for what he is.
Seite 110 - SACRED AND LEGENDARY ART, containing Legends of the Angels and Archangels, the Evangelists, the Apostles, the Doctors of the Church, St. Mary Magdalene, the Patron Saints, the Martyrs, the Early Bishops, the Hermits and the WarriorSaints of Christendom, as represented in the Fine Arts.
Seite 62 - The Engineer's Handbook ; explaining the principles which should guide the young Engineer in the Construction of Machinery.
Seite 121 - DD THE CHURCH OF THE FIRST THREE CENTURIES ; or, Notices of the Lives and Opinions of the Early Fathers, with special reference to the Doctrine of the Trinity ; illustrating its late origin and gradual formation. Revised and enlarged edition. 8vo, $2.50. Lucy Larcom. BREATHINGS OF THE BETTER LIFE. " Little Classic

Emerson is a man of genius such as does not often appear, such as has never appeared before in America, and but seldom in the world. He learns from all sorts of men, but no English writer, we think, is so original.
Seite 45 - Each volume, 12mo, $1.50. Mr. Cook did not take up the work he has accomplished as a trade, or by accident, or from impulse ; but for years he had been preparing for it, and prepared for it by an overruling guidance. . . . He lightens and thunders, throwing a vivid light on a topic by an expression or comparison, or striking a presumptuous error as by a bolt from heaven.
Seite 193 - His command of imagery is wide, easy, and luxuriant. He threw the soul of harmony into our verse, and made it more warmly, tenderly, and magnificently descriptive than it ever was before, or, with a few exceptions, than it has ever been since.
Seite 49 - The enduring monuments of Fenimore Cooper are his works. While the love of country continues to prevail, his memory will exist in the hearts of the people. So truly patriotic and American throughout, they should find a place in every American's library.
Seite 189 - This is an admirable book. It lacks no quality that a biography ought to have. Its method is excellent, its theme is profoundly interesting...
