OXFORD BIBLES FOR TEACHERS.

When these popular Bibles first appeared in October 1876, they contained many original
and valuable Helps to Students of the Bible, which had been specially prepared for them by
eminent Scholars.

The Bookseller of DECEMBER 2, 1876, says :-
* The perfection of this Edition seems really as if it might defy competition. To begin with,
the text is, of course, that of the Authorised Version, page for page with the original minion
crown octavo Oxford edition. To the two Testaments is appended “A Help to Students of
the Bible,” containing matter which, in amount and variety, represents positively a library of
commentaries. First, there are descriptive, critical, and in some cases bibliographical notes on
every book of either Testament, followed by a list of the Miracles and of the Parables
occurring in either; and by a “ Harmony of the Gospels” arranged in a convenient tabular
form. St. Paul's three Missionary journeys and his first voyage to Rome are drawn out,
with a brief mention of his successive halting places. To these succeed a very useful description
of sects, parties, and classes of persons among the Jews. A table gives the chronology of
the Old Testament, and another the “supposed ” chronology of the Acts and Epistles.
Then we find a small treatise on the geography, the historical topography, the natural
history, and the ethnology of Palestine; concluding with a historical summary of the rise
and decline of the Jewish people. Tables of weights and measures come next in order; then
of time and of money, both Jewish and Roman. The names, titles, and characters of Christ
are made the subject of a table of reference, with the passages of Scripture corresponding to
each. Similarly arranged are the prophecies, relating to Christ. The minute analysis of the
sacred text is exemplified in a table of special prayers, that are found in the Bible; after which

an important index and A Pronouncing Dictionary of all the Proper
Names, which will greatly assist any one who has to read the Bible in public. Next,
“ Cruden's Concordance” is given entire; and a word must be reserved for a number of excellent
maps. When we add that all this is compressed within a little volume not quite one inch and a
a half in thickness, we shall have said enough to show how much valuable assistance in the study
of the Bible the purchaser of such a volume might have the happiness of offering his friend."

The Publishers' Circular of DECEMBER 18, 1876, says:
"It is one of the most useful Bibles we have seen for many years. It supplies, indeed, a
want or desideratum so substantially that we feel induced to give it prominent notice. It is as
full of Biblical information as an egg is full of meat. It is in pearl 16mo. with marginal references,
and has compressed but excellent notes on the New and Old Testaments, on the Canon
of the Scripture, of the Christian Canon, an analysis and summary of each book,
notes chronological, historical, and geographical, on the miracles of the old Testa.
ment, on the miracles of the New Testament, on the parables, on Jewish sects; tables
of weights and measures, harmony of the Gospels, a compressed Cruden's Concordance,
Index, maps, symbols, historical summary, &c. This list might be made larger, but, like
Mr. Frowde, we have need of compression. The maps, which are many, are beautifully clear, and
altogether this Bible is a gem which approaches perfection. No better or more valuable present
could be given to a man, young or old, provided he will study it. It has within it a whole library
of Biblical reference, and, like the vase which held the ashes of Alexander, though small, holds
that which is of infinite price. It is an armoury which will furnish the most simple Christian
with weapons of attack if need be, but, what is far better, with a whole panoply of defence.'

In the NEW FACSIMILE SERIES
of these Bibles which has recently been issued, the whole of the supplementary matter has been

lly revised and amplified by eminent Oxford Scholars and Professors, and the following
important additions have been made :-

Tabulated Lists of the Trees, Plants, Flowers, Insects, Reptiles, Birds, Aquatic
Animals and Quadrupeds of the Bible, with description of each. Summaries of the
Mammalia of the Bible ; and of the Fisheries of Palestine, with their products. Tabulated
Lists of the MOUNTAINS, RIVERS, and LAKES, with their associations. A summary of the
Interval between the Old and New Testaments. The Geology of Bible Lands. The
Music and Musical Instruments of Scripture. A List of the Obsolete and Ambiguous
Words used in Scripture, with their meanings, &c. &c.

They are also furnished with a New Concordance prepared expressly for them, and the text
in the various sizes is so arranged that they correspond page for page.

The Times of DECEMBER 9, 1878, says :-
* They well deserve their second title of “The Bible Student's Helpers.” They include,
besides the sacred texts and copious references, notes on the Old and New Testaments, á
summary of the history intervening between the two Testaments, essays on the chronology,
geography, ethnology, &c.; a harmony of the Gospels, tables of time, weights, and measures,
brief summaries of the chief prophecies and miracles, indexes of contents and of proper names,
a selection of maps, twelve in number, and a concordance to the Sacred Scriptures, all brought
within the compass of a single volume.'

The Standard of DECEMBER 20, 1878, says :-
“Every other kind of information, geological, musical, or etymological, is freely given. Add
to this that the bindings are superbly good, and what more can the teacher want?

The Daily Telegraph of DECEMBER 25, 1878, says:-
A new facsimile series of Bibles corresponding page for page throughout has just beer.
pablished, in six different sizes, by Mr. Henry Frowde, of the Oxford University Press
Warehouse, Paternoster-row. The first on the list is a superb small quarto edition, printed on
Şecially prepared paper, with wide margins for manuscript notes. It contains a vast amount of
Biblical information, carefully prepared by eminent Oxford scholars and professors. In addition
to the authorised text and Dr. Blayney's references will be found a valuable and exhaustive
series of analytical notes and summaries of the several books; historical, chronological, and
geographical tables ; lists of animals, birds, reptiles, plants, &c., found in Scripture; tables of
Feights, measures, time, and money; a list of words obsolete or ambiguous; a new index to the
Hible, the new Oxford Concordance, a dictionary of Scripture proper names, with references to
lle passages where they occur, and a series of coloured maps. The student and the teacher will
ind each of these uniformly copious and excellent Bibles an invaluable aid in Scriptural
Tesearch.'

The Globe of DECEMBER 23, 1878, says :-
* They are beautifully 'printed, very portable, and the best and the most comprehensive
Eibles for Teachers that have yet appeared. Every want of the Student or Teacher is pro-

The Academy of DECEMBER 14, 1878, says:
Certainly both teacher and learner alike are to be congratulated on this important addition to
eir resources for the intelligent study of the Scriptures, which brings within the reach of
Every one the results of recent research in many departments of science. Of the typographical
rocution of this sumptuous edition it would be difficult to speak too highly.'

The Examiner of DECEMBER 21, 1878, says :-
* They are perfect examples of what a teacher's book should be. The various editions are
inted on thin but opaque paper, and contain, in addition to the authorised text, exhaustive
kolia on every subject connected with Biblical literature. The geology, the flora and fauna,

te music and musical instruments of the sacred volumes are tabulated, and in so complete a
mader that the student has at hand a complete encyclopædia of information.'

The Sunday School Chronicle of DECEMBER 13, 1878, says:-
*They are beautifully executed, the workmanship is perfect, the supplementary matter is fully
dapted to the precise needs of teachers, and it has been carefully revised and enlarged. We
not conceive the teacher, superintendent or pastor who wouid not count one of these Bibles as
the best of all his Christmas gifts.'
