Geology and Genesis Harmonised.

THE TWIN RECORDS of CREATION; or, Geology and
Genesis, their Perfect Harmony and Wonderful Concord. By
GEORGE W. VICTOR LE Vaux. With numerous Illustrations.

Fcap. 8vo, price 5s. cloth. “We can recommend Mr. Le Vaux as an able and interesting guide to a popular appreciation of geological science.”-Spectator.

“The author combines an unbounded admiration of science with an unbounded admiration of the Written Record. The two impulses are balanced to a nicety; and the consequence is, that difficulties, which to minds less evenly poised, would be serious, find immediate solutions of the happiest kinds.”—London Review.

“Mr. Le Vaux very feasibly reconciles the two records.”Builder.

A most instructive and readable book. We welcome this volume as aiding in a most important discussion, and commend it to those interested in the subject.”— Evangelical Magazine

“Vigorously written, reverent in spirit, stored with instructive geological facts, and designed to show that there is no discrepancy or inconsistency between the Word and the works of the Creator. The future of Nature, in connexion with the glorious destiny of man, is vividly conceived."-Watchman.

“A valuable contribution to the evidences of Revelation, and disposes very conclusively of the arguments of those who would set God's works against God's Word. No real difficulty is shirked, and no sophistry is left unexposed." - The Rock.

Wood-Carving.

INSTRUCTIONS in WOOD-CARVING, for Amateurs; with
Hints on Design. By A LADY. In emblematic wrapper, hand.

somely printed, with Ten large Plates, price 25. 6d. “The handicraft of the wood-carver, so well as a book can impart it, may be learnt from 'A Lady's' publication."-Athenæum.

A real practical guide. It is very complete.”—Literary Churchman.

“The directions given are plain and easily understood, and it forms a very good introduction to the practical part of the carver's art."-English Mechanic.

“The writer of the little treatise before us deals very plainly and practically with her subject..... The illustrations are admirably drawn, nearly all the patterns being

able for their graceful ornamentation. We can confidently recommend the book to amateur wood-carvers."-Young Englishwoman.

Popular Work on Painting.

PAINTING POPULARLY EXPLAINED; with Historical
Sketches of the Progress of the Art. By THOMAS JOHN GULLICK,
Painter, and JOHN TIMBS, F.S.A. Second Edition, revised and
enlarged. With Frontispiece and Vignette. In small 8vo, 6s. cloth.

** This Work has been adopted as a Prize-book in the Schools of Art at South Kensington. A work that may be advantageously consulted. Much may be learned, even by hose who fancy they do not require to be taught, from the careful perusal of this unpretending but comprehensive treatise."-Art Journal.

“A valuable book, which supplies a want. It contains a large amount of original matter, agreeably conveyed, and will be found of value, as well by the young artist seeking information as by the general reader. We give a cordial welcome to the book, and augur for it an increasing reputation."-Builder.

“This volume is one that we can heartily recommend to all who are desirous of understanding what they admire in a good painting."-Daily News.
