DR. WILLIAM SMITH'S

DICTIONARY OF THE BIBLE,

Comprising its Antiquities, Biography. Geography, and Natural History.

EDITED BY

PROF. HORATIO BALCH HACKETT and EZRA ABBOT, LL. D.

The Original English Edition reproduced without mutilation: text and illustration complete, with manifold

textual oTOrs corrected, and important additions made under the direction of

the two Most Competent editors in America.

In four volumes, 8vo, pp. 3667, with 596 Illustrations.

The English original of this work was, until this edition appealed, the best Dictionary of the Bible in the language. "No similar work in our own or in any other language is lor a moment to be compared with it." — Quarterly Review, London.

This American edition is an improvement upon the original. "There cannot well be two opinions about the merits of Smith's Bible Dictionary. What was, to begin with, the best book of its kind in our language, is now still better." — Professor lioswell D. Hitchcock.

"The Bookseller,'' of London, writing of this edition, says: "In short, it seems that we hare to thank America for the most complete work of the kind in the English, or, indeed, in any other language."
