Aysey's Translation of Jeremiah, together with the Notes that accompany it, are too well known to those conversant in biblical criticism, to stand in need of any recommendation in this place. The value of this work has been long justly appreciated by those who have been in the habit of consulting it. Of these indeed the number has been probably much less than it otherwise would have been, from the high price of the former edition, and the difficulty that was frequently experien, ced in procuring a copy of it. It was this consideration, in connexion with the intrinsic value of the work, that first suggested the idea of publishing the present edition, and thus of'presenting so useful a volume to the public in a cheaper and more accessible form. The Editors conceive they do no trifling service to those who are employed in the study of the word of Cod, while they put into their hands a valuable work of sacred criticism at half the price at which it could formerly be procured. . They have only farther to notice, that particular care has been taken to make the present edition as accurate as possible. The errata that had crept into the former edition have been corrected, and the indexes have been carefully examined, and accommodated to this new form of the work. One of the indexes accompanying this publication, they conceive, adds considerably to its value, viz. that which contains a list of all the texts, arranged according to the books of Scripture, which are more or less explained in the course of the author's Notes and Illustrations. By this means, the inquirer into the meaning of Scripture, can a{ one glance discover whether any illustration of a particular text is to be found in the work to ■which such an index is attached. Into this part of the former edition, several eri-ors had found their way, which were not noticed in the errata. These, it has been the study of the Editors, in the present impression, carefdly to correct.
