ADVERTISEMENT.

The series of volumes, of which this work is the commencement, is intended to promote he cause of knowledge and religion among families. It is designed to be of a popular and practical character, and to exert a direct religious influence — though it is not to be exclusively of a religious character. The successive volumes will be, in some cases, original works; in others, compilations, or republications of such works as may be suited to the design of the series. The present volume is the joint production of several writers interested in the plan.
