CHURCH ‘PUBLISHING AND BOOKSELLING ESTABLISHMENT, 25 JOHN STREET.

ADVERTISEMENT.

In presenting this uniform edition of the Works of the late truly excellent and pious Dr. Horne, it may be necessary to premise, that the reader is not to expect that it shall contain an entire collection of his writings.* Some of his juvenile essays and controversial tracts are omitted, because, however amusing or useful at the time they were written, they would contribute but little to the stock of public information in the present day. Nor, although they might not materially diminish, could they add much to a reputation derived from those mature labors which have been so long sanctioned by public approbation, and are eminently calculated to promote that vital and practical Christianity, which was ever nearest the author's heart, and ever animated his tongue and pen.

Dec. 1808.

In this American reprint there have been added several discourses not included in any other edition of Bishop Horne's Works.-Am. PUB.
