Rodwell's Koran-continued.

Sale's translation is based upon the Latin version of Maracci. But with reference to the text from Maracci translated, Flügel says, “Maraccius in lectionibus receptis fere nunquam sibi constitit, sexcenties verba perperam expressit ut versioni ejus ... majus pretium statuendum mihi videatur, quam verbis textus arabicis.” Pref. p. vi. i.e. “Maracci is inconsistent in the readings which he has adopted, and has made hundreds of mistakes in rendering even these, &c." So that Sale's version may be fairly said in the judgment of Flügel to be based upon the faulty version of a faulty text.

Dr. Rodwell's translation of the Coran has at length (after fifteen years) reached a second edition. Its merits are too well known to need commendation at our hands, and the chronological arrangement of the Suras (founded upon Nöldeke's researches), though it cannot be accepted as final, is a distinctive feature of great importance and value. As the basis of further investigations, such an arrangement had become almost necessary; and it is remarkable that Dr. Rodwell has not seen cause to make any important alterations in this respect in the second edition.

Whoever desires to make a study of Italian Painting must have Rosini's great work as a “ Handbook."

The outline engravings are done with a delicacy and spirit; they truly place the original Picture before the mind's eye. Whoever has visited the Art Galleries of Europe or intends to see them, will find Rosini's History a most precious acquisition.

The taste with which the examples that adorn this beautiful book were selected, is quite equalled by the rare knowledge displayed in the accompanying text, as well as by the execution of the illustrations, which may be looked upon as the very perfection of the Art of WoodEngraving.
