“ A well-known little book, entitled “Hymns for Infant Minds,' contains (Nos. 14 and 15) a better practical description of Christian humility, and its opposite, than I ever met with in so small a compass. Though very intelligible and touching to a mere child, a man of the most mature understanding, if not quite destitute of the virtue in question, may be the wiser and better for it.”-Ābp.

THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF Q. Q.

BY JANE TAYLOR.
A New Edition (being the 10th), in fcap. 8vo, with Vignette

Title, price 78. cloth.
“A work which cannot be too highly praised; religious precepts, moral
lessons, and interesting information, all given in a sound and beautiful form.
Another instance of the popularity of good writing—this book being in high
favour with children. In its present form, this work is, perhaps, not generally,
known, as it was published in detached portions in the “Youth's Magazine,'
and the parts have only lately been collected. But many a reader is
acquainted with “The Discontented Pendulum.' 'How it Strikes a Stranger!'
&c., which appeared in separate pieces, and will be found in various selections
of prose reading."- Quarterly Review (July, 1844,) in ar Article on Juvenile
Publications.
