In one octavo volume. This Edition is improved by the addition of various articles, and will be found in every respect brought up to the time of publication.
“The Physics of Muller is a work, superb, complete, unique: the greatest want known to Eng. lish 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 20002."-Lancet, March, 1847.

WHITE'S UNIVERSAL HISTORY.
LATELY PUBLISHED, 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.
BY JOHN S. HART, A.M.,
In one volume, large duodecimo, neatly bound with Maroon Backs. 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, ihere 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, }
State of New York. Department of Common Schools.
Albany, Oct. 14th, 1845. Messrs. Leaf Blanchard :
Gertlemen :- 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. This work is admirably calculated for District and other libraries : an edition for that pnrpose without questions has been prepared, done up in strong cloth.

HILLIARD ON REAL ESTATE.
THE AMERICAN LAW OF REAL PROPERTY. SECOND EDITION, REVISED, CORRECTED, AND ENLARGE D.
BY FRANCIS HILLIARD,
COUNSELLOR AT LAW.
In two large octavo volumes, beautifully printed, and bound in best law sheep. This book is designed as a substitute for Cruise's Digest, occupying the same ground in American law which that work has long covered in the linglish law. It embraces all that portion of the English Law of Real Estate which has any applicability in this country; and at the same time it embodies the statutory provisions and adjudged cases of all the States upon the same subject; thereby constituting a complete elementary treatise for American students and practitioners. The plan of the work is such as to render it equally valuable in all the States, embracing, as it does, the peculiar modifications of the law alike in MASSACHUSETTS and MISSOURI, New YORK and MISSISSIPPI. In this edition, the statutes and decisions subse. quent to the former one, which are very numerous, have all been incorporated, thus making it one-third larger than the original work, and bringing the view of the law upon the subject treated quite down to the present time. The book is recommended in the highest terms by distinguished jurists of different States, as will be seen by the subjoined extracts.
“The work before us supplies this deficiency in a highly satisfactory manner. It is beyond all question the best work of the kind that we now have, and although we doubt whether this or any other work will be likely to supplant Cruise's Digest, we do not hesitate to say, that of the two, this is the more valuable to the American lawyer. We congratulate the author upon the successful accomplishment of the arduous task he undertook, in reducing the vast body of the American Law of Real Property to 'portable size,' and we do not doubt that his labours will be duly appreciated by the profession.”- Law Reporter, Aug., 1846.
Judge Story says :-"I think the work a very valuable addition to our present stock of juridical literature. It embraces all that part of Mr. Cruise's Digest which is most useful to American lawyers. But its higher value is, that it presents in a concise, but clear and exact form, the substance of American Law on the same subject. I know no work that we possess, whose practical utility is likely to be so extensively fell.” “ The wonder is, that the author has been able to bring so great a mass into so condensed a text, at once comprehensive and lucid."
Chancellor Kent says of the work (Commentaries, vol. ii., p. 635, note, 5th edition):—“It is a work of great labour and intrinsic value."
Hon. Rufus Choate says :—"Mr. Hilliard's work has been for three or four years in use, and i think that Mr. Justice Story and Chancellor Kent express the general opinion of the Massachusetts
Professor Greenleaf says :-"I had already found the first edition a very convenient book of reforence, and do not doubt, from the appearance of the second, that it is greatly improved."
Professor J. H. Townsend, of Yale College, says:
“I have been acquainted for several years with the first edition of Mr. Hilliard's Treatise, and have formed a very favourable opinion of it. I have no doubt the second edition will be found even more valuable than the first, and I shall be happy to recommend it as I may have opportunity. I know of no other work on the subject of Real Estate, so comprehensive and so weil adapted to the state of the law in this country."

HILL ON TRUSTEES.

A NEW LAW DICTIONARY,
ACTION AT LAW AND OF A SUIT IN EQUITY.
of the Inner Temple, Special Pleader.
of the Philadelphia Bar. In one large volume, royal 12mo., of about 500 pages, double columns, handsomely
bound in law sheep. “This is a considerable improvement upon the former editions, being bound with the usual law binding, and the general execution admirable-the paper excellent, and the printing clear and beautiful. Its peculiar usefulness, however, consists in the valuable additions above referred to, being intelligible and well devised definitions of such phrases and technicalities as are peculiar to the practice in the Courts of this conntry.-While, therefore, we recommend it especiaily to the students of law, as a safe guide through the intricacies of their study, it will nevertheless be found a valuable acquisition to the library of the practitioner himself.”- Aler. Gazette.
“This work is intended rather for the general student, than as a substitute for many abridgments, digests, and dictionaries in use by the professional man. Its object principally is to impress accurately and distinctly upon the mind the meaning of the technical terms of the law, and as such can hardly fail to be generally useful. There is much curious information to be found in it in re gard to the peculiarities of the ancient Saxon law. The additions of the American edition give increased value to the work, and evince much accuracy and care."--- Pennsylvania Law Journal.
