WITH NOTICES OF THE CASTLE OF DUBLIN,
BY J. T. GILBERT, ESQ.,
Secretary of the Irish Archæological and Celtic Society; Author of a
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
From the ATHENÆUM. “ This work leads us to hope that the history of Ireland is about to be written anew-not rewritten from old books, bristling with old prejudices, but from new sources, and by comparison of old and new statements, and after due weighing of adverse testimony. ... In illustrations of a past life, Mr. Gilbert's work is very rich ; it is one of the ablest and most useful books on Irish history, that has hitherto come under our notice.”
From the DUBLIN REVIEW. “This goodly volume bears in every page the evidence of exact and laborious investigation of every source, whether printed or manuscript, of the general history of the country, as well as of the personal history of the individual Governors. This book exhibits so much learning ; such a familiarity with original records, as well as with the historians, whether ancient or modern ; such a power of constructing an attractive story out of a mass of obscure and apparently uninteresting facts and authorities; that it will go far to redeem even the earlier period of the post-invasion history of Ireland from its traditional character of dulness and monotony. We cannot help anticipating for the present work a popularity and a success new indeed in all the annals of the historic siterature of Ireland.”
From the FORTNIGHTLY REVIEW. “For this task Mr. Gilbert was admirably fitted, as the product of his labour shows. He has woven from his materials an interesting narrative; while as an accurate, reliable epitome of the contents of historical documents not generally known, his work is valuable. Exciting events are related in a style that enchains the attention of the reader. Biographical sketches of eminent individuals who exercised an influence on the Irish administration, impart an ever-varying interest to the general narrative."
From the DUBLIN UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE. “The author's qualifications for such a work were undoubted. He devoted himself with the zeal of an enthusiast, the patience and scrupulousness of the true historian, and the energy and perseverance of a conscientious workman, to an investigation of all the original and before unexamined documents which throw light upon the administration of the long line of Irish Lords Lieutenant. Previous authors copied each other merely, but he has gone for his materials to primary Irish sources, and consulted the archives both of England and Ireland with the utmost care. Heretofore, indeed, there has not been even an accurate catalogue of the Viceroys of Ireland, so loosely have former writers dealt with a subject of extreme intricacy and great historical importance. A flood of light is thrown upon Irish history by many of the authentic documents which Mr. Gilbert has laid bare for the first time."
From the LONDON REVIEW. - This work bears intrinsic evidence of great learning, of industry, and of original research, As a contribution to our knowledge of Irish history it is of unquestionable value.”
From the TABLET. "We have hardly touched upon the more profound and difficult historical questions, such as the legislation of the Anglo-Norman colony, its political and diplomatic relations with the Irish toparchs, and the peculiar part which it played in several of the dynastic difficulties which arose in England between the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries. All these questions Mr. Gilbert has treated with singular ability, with a fine mastery of the matter in hand, and in a manner clear, compact, finely argued, fully substantiated. We are glad to direct the attention of our readers to this book, as one of the most solid recent contributions to the study of Irish history."

American Bibliography. FIELD'S Essay towards an
INDIAN BIBLIOGRAPHY, being a Catalogue of Books relating to the History, Antiquities, Languages, Customs, Religion, Wars, Literature and Origin of the American Indians, in the library of Thos. W. Field, with Bibliographical and Historical Notes, 8vo. pp. iv and 439, cloth, 168
New York, 1730 This bibliographical handbrook, embracing a collection of about 1800 works, may be considered the chief, if not the only one of the kind. The author's notes are judicions and valuable and have an interest beyond even the actnal subject of the essay. Collectors of Americana of every kind will derive pleasure and profit from a labour that evinces a wide range of study of experience. The occasional inaccuracies that appear in the transcription of titles in foreign languages seem to be merely typographical. Ancient
IDEA IN TAE RELIGIONS OF ANTIQUITY, by HODDER M. WESTROPP and C. STANILAND WAKE, with an Introduction, additional Notes, and Appendix by ALEXANDER Wilder, M.D., 1 vol. 8vo. second edition, with plates, cloth, 108 6d
New York, 1875 These papers were read before the Anthropological Society of London, attracting great interest anong scholars and persons of cultivation. The whole subject of Phallism is here condensed and set forth modestly yet explicitly; and its connection with the ancient-world religions accurately defined. The Biblical student, desirous to understand the nature and character of the idolatry of the Israelites, during the Commonwealth and Monarchy, the Missionary to heathen lands fitting for his work, and the classic scholar endeavouring to comprehend the ideas and principles which underlie mythology, will find their curiosity gratified; and they will be enabled at the same time to perceive bw not only many of our modern systems of religion, but our arts and architecture, are to be traced to the same archaic source. Such additions to our knowledge will be beneficial in every department of science, art, and civilization : while true religion is incalculably the gainer.
A new and carefully corrected edition of
Mahommed, re-arranged and translated into English, with Notes by J.
1876 The Koran as arranged in the authentic Arabic MSS. is a sad jumble of the original composition of Mahommed, made some years after his death by order of Abu Bekr. Mr. Rodwell has rearranged all the Surahs chronologically, so as to form one perfect work, shewing the growth and progression of the doctrines of the Prophet.

Vol. 1, consisting of pp. xx and 466, is now ready. The entire work will comprize over 1000 pp., compressed into a portable volnme, and representing the only Arabic-English and English-Arabic Dictionary now in existence.
* On the whole the work is a most acceptable contribution to Oriental literature; and the

1866 The best Gramma- for learning Arabic, equally of service to travellers in the East and 10 young Beimlars. The rudiments of Grammar extend to pp. 64, the Exercises to 68, the Dialogues tu 13, the locabulary to pp. 52. All the Arabic words have the Vowel points and the pronunciation.
Just out :
1877 This work offers special attractions to the student of modern Arabic, being written in a colloquial and easy style, and at the same time possessing the interest of a chequered and marvellous story. The hero was in turns, courtier, pirate, merchant, slave, shepherd, derwish, captive ; although there is nothing to show that his career does not belong almost to our own times.

“ This fine work was the first in which the idea of exhibiting the Progress of Art, by a series of its noblest monuments, was perfectly carried out. By a series of accurate Engravings from celebrated Monuments, we trace the transitions or Art from the classic period to our own times. Sculpture, Painting, and the Art of Illumination ; and the Art of Engraving on Wood, on Gems and on Medals are similarly represented.
" It is a work that has long been sought and prized by all who could afford the high price at which only it was to be procured. No Library, Architect, Painter, Sculptor, or
anv one connected with the Fine Arts, should be without such a work." Avesta : THE RELIGIOUS BOOKS OF THE PARSEES, from Pro

CHRISTIAN ART BY THE OLD GERMAN MASTERS.
Boisseree Gallery now at Munich,
GALLERY OF THE OLD GERMAN MASTERS, formerly at Stuttgart, in the Possession of the Brothers BOISSERÉE, now removed to Munich, 120 superb Plates, executed under the direction of STRIXNER, engraved in lithography, heightened by tints, and so admirably done as to be scarcely dis. tinguishable from the most perfect line engravings, mounted and ruled on drab. coloured drawing paper, elephant folió, quite COMPLETE, with title and Table of Contents, half bound red MOROCCO, £20. Stuttgart und München, 1821-36
Published at £75. Priced, in 1841, H. Bohn, £63. In 1825 a copy fetched at Sotheby's £40.; 1860, Scarisbrick's, £28. 108 ; 1868, Lord Farnham's, £34.
To all engaged in the study of Christian Mythology and Christian Art, to all Painters and Sculptors, the Boisserée Gallery is of especial interest, as no where else can be found such faithful representations of the ecclesiastically accepted portraits of Christ, the Holy Family, the Apostles, and the Saints of the Christian Church.
In no other paintings is found expressed the same religious feeling and depth. The alphabetical Index of subjects facilitates research, as several portraits have been treated with variations by different artists.
La collection de peintures d'après laquelle ce magnifique recueil est publié, et qui fait maintenant partie de la galerie royale de Munich, se compose de 320 morceaux; mais l'ouvrage que nous annonçons ne presente qu'un choix des objets les plus nécessaires pour former une histoire à peu près complète de la peinture allemande et flamande, par les monuments mêmes. Elle est divisée en trois series principales : la première contient les peintures du XIVe siècle, la seconde celles du XVe, et la troisième celles du XVIe.
"C'est dans cet ouvrage que, sous le crayon de M. Strixner, la lithographie semble avoir atteint le plus haut degré de perfection en Ailemagne.”—Brunet.
