We have also received two parts of “ The Bible of every Land; or, a History, critical and philological, of all the Versions of the sacred Scriptures." London : Bagsters. This work, when completed, will be exceedingly interesting.
We continue to receive the “ National Cyclopædia” (London, Knight and Co.), containing a fand of valuable information ; also Sharpe's “ London Magazine," from which we have occasionally introduced some useful matter into our own pages.
