WHITE'S UNIVERSAL HISTORY.
ELEMENTS OF UNIVERSAL HISTORY, ON A NEW AND SYSTEMATIC PLAN;
FROM THE EARLIEST TIMES TO THE TREATY OF VIENNA; TO WHICH IS ADDED, A SUMMARY OF THE LEADING EVENTS SINCE
THAT PERIOD, FOR THE USE OF SCHOOLS
AND PRIVATE STUDENTS.
BY H. WHITE, B. A.,
TRINITY COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE.
WITH ADDITIONS AND QUESTIONS,
Principal of the Philadelphia High School, and Professor of Moral and Mental Science, &c., &c.
This work is arranged on a new plan, which is believed to combine the advantages of those formerly in use. It is divided into three parts, corresponding with Ancient, Middle, and Modern History; which parts are again subdivided into centuries, so that the various events are presented in the order of time, while it is so arranged that the annals of each country can be read consecutively, thus combining the advantages of both the plans hitherto pursued in works of this kind. To guide the researches of the student, there will be found numerous synoptical tables, with remarks and sketches of literature, antiquities, and manners, at the great chronological epochs.
The additions of the American editor have been principally confined to the chapters on the history of this country. The series of questions by him will be found of use to those who prefer that system of instruction. For those who do not, the publishers have had an edition prepared without the questions.
This work has already passed through several editions, and has been introduced into many of the higher Schools and Academies throughout the country. From among numerous recommendations which they have received, the publishers annex the following from the Deputy Superintendent of Common Schools for New York:
Secretary's Office, Department of Common Schools.
Messrs. Lea & Blanchard:
State of New York, Albany, Oct. 14th, 1845.
Gentlemen:-I have examined the copy of "White's Universal History," which you were so obliging as to send me, and cheerfully and fully concur in the commendations of its value, as a comprehensive and enlightened survey of the Ancient and Modern World, which many of the most competent judges have, as I perceive, already bestowed upon it. It appears to me to be admirably adapted to the purposes of our public schools; and I unhesitatingly approve of its introduction into those seminaries of elementary instruction. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, SAMUEL S. RANDALL, Deputy Superintendent Common Schools.
BIRD'S NATURAL PHILOSOPHY.
ELEMENTS OF NATURAL PHILOSOPHY,
BEING AN EXPERIMENTAL INTRODUCTION TO THE
ILLUSTRATED WITH OVER THREE HUNDRED WOOD-CUTS.
BY GOLDING BIRD, M.D.,
FROM THE THIRD LONDON EDITION.
In one neat volume.
"By the appearance of Dr. Bird's work, the student has now all that he can desire in one neat, concise, and well-digested volume. The elements of natural philosophy are explained in very simple language, and illustrated by numerous wood-cuts."Medical Gazette.
"A volume of useful and beautiful instruction for the young."-Literary Gazette. "We should like to know that Dr. Bird's book was associated with every boys' and girls' school throughout the kingdom."-Medical Gazette.
"This work marks an advance which has long been wanting in our system of instruction. Mr. Bird has succeeded in producing an elementary work of great merit. -Athenæum.
A TREATISE ON ASTRONOMY,

MULLER'S PHYSICS AND METEOROLOGY.
PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS AND METEOROLOGY,
BY J. MULLER,
Professor of Physics at the University of Freiburg.
ILLUSTRATED WITH NEARLY FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY ENGRAVINGS ON WOOD, AND TWO COLORED PLATES.
In one octavo volume.
In laying the following pages before the public, it seems necessary to state that the design of them is to render more easily accessible a greater portion of the general principles of Physics and Meteorology than is usually to be obtained, without the sacrifice of a greater amount of time and labour than most persons can afford, or are willing to make. The subjects of which this volume treats are very numerous-more numerous, in fact, than at first sight it would seem possible to embrace in so small a compass. The Author has, however, by a system of the most judicious selection and condensation, been enabled to introduce all the most important facts and theories relating to Statics, Hydrostatics, Dynamics, Hydrodynamics, Pneumatics, the Laws of the Motions of Waves in general, Sound, the Theory of Musical Notes, the Voice and Hearing, Geometrical and Physical Optics, Magnetism, Electricity and Galvanism, in all their subdivisions, Heat and Meteorology, within the space of an ordinary middlesized volume. Of the manner in which the translator has executed his task, it behoves him to say nothing; he has attempted nothing more than a plain, and nearly literal version of the original. He cannot, however, conclude this brief introductory note without directing the attention of his Readers to the splendid manner in which the Publishers have illustrated this volume.
"The Physics of Muller is a work, superb, complete, unique: the greatest want known to English Science could not have been better supplied. The work is of surpassing interest. The value of this contribution to the scientific records of this country may be duly estimated by the fact, that the cost of the original drawings and engravings alone has exceeded the sum of 20007."-Lancet, March, 1847.
"The plan adopted by Muller is simple; it reminds us of the excellent and popular treatise published many years since by Dr. Arnott, but it takes a much wider range of subjects. Like it, all the necessary explanations are given in clear and concise language, without more than an occasional reference to mathematics; and the treatise is most abundantly illustrated with well-executed wood engravings.
"The author has actually contrived to comprise in about five hundred pages, ineluding the space occupied by illustrations, Mechanics, the Laws of Motion, Acoustics, Light, Magnetism, Electricity, Galvanism, Electro-Magnetism, Heat, and Meteorology. Medical practitioners and students, even if they have the means to procure, have certainly not the time to study an elaborate treatise in every branch of science; and the question therefore is, simply, whether they are to remain wholly ignorant of such subjects, or to make a profitable use of the labours of those who have the happy art of saying or suggesting much in a small space.
"From our examination of this volume, we do not hesitate to recommend it to our readers as a useful book on a most interesting branch of science. We may remark, that the translation is so well executed, that we think the translator is doing himself injustice by concealing his name."-London Medical Gazette, August, 1847.
ELEMENTS OF CHEMISTRY,
THE APPLICATIONS OF THE SCIENCE IN THE ARTS. BY T. GRAHAM, F. R. S., &c.
SECOND AMERICAN, FROM THE SECOND LONDON EDITION. EDITED AND REVISED BY ROBERT BRIDGES, M. D., Professor of Chemistry in the Franklin Medical College, Philadelphia.
In one large octavo volume, with numerous wood-engravings. This edition will be found enlarged and improved, so as to be fully brought up to a level with the science of the day.
ELEMENTS OF PHYSICS; OR, NATURAL PHILOSOPHY,
GENERAL AND MEDICAL.
WRITTEN FOR UNIVERSAL USE, IN PLAIN, OR NON-TECHNICAL LANGUAGE. BY NIELL ARNOTT, M. D.
A NEW EDITION, BY ISAAC HAYS, M. D. Complete in one octavo volume, with nearly two hundred wood-cuts.
This standard work has been long and favourably known as one of the best popular expositions of the interesting science it treats of. It is extensively used in many of the first seminaries.
ELEMENTARY CHEMISTRY, THEORETICAL
BY GEORGE FOWNES, PH. D.,
BY ROBERT BRIDGES, M.D.,
Professor of General and Pharmaceutical Chemistry in the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, &c., &c.
SECOND AMERICAN EDITION.
In one large duodecimo volume, sheep, or extra cloth, with nearly two hundred wood-cuts.
The character of this work is such as to recommend it to all colleges and academies in want of a text-book. It is fully brought up to the day, containing all the late views and discoveries that have so entirely changed the face of the science, and it is completely illustrated with very numerous wood engravings, explanatory of all the different processes and forms of apparatus. Though strictly scientific, it is written with great clearness and simplicity of style, rendering it easy to be comprehended by those who are commencing the study.
It may be had well bound in leather, or neatly done up in strong cloth. Its low price places it within the reach of all.
Extract of a letter from Professor Millington, of William and Mary College, Va. "I have perused the book with much pleasure, and find it a most admirable work; and, to my mind, such a one as is just now much needed in schools and colleges. ✦✦✦ All the books I have met with on chemistry are either too puerile or too erudite, and I confess Dr. Fownes' book seems to be the happiest medium I have seen, and admirably suited to fill up the hiatus."
Though this work has been so recently published, it has already been adopted as a text-book by a large number of the higher schools and colleges throughout the country, and many of the Medical Institutions. As a work for the upper classes in academies and the junior students of colleges, there has been but one opinion expressed concerning it, and it may now be considered as THE TEXT-BOOK for the Chemical Student.
