African Desert; by James Riley, her late master and supercargo.
We are happy to announce, that the continuation of the State Trials to the present time, edited by Thomas Jones Howell, Esq. is in course of publication. The first vo lume, which has just appeared, comprises the period from 1783 to 1793, and contains many cases of the highest interest and im portance. We understand that, for the accommodation of such persons as possess Hargrave's State Trials, a separate title page has been printed so as to render "the Continuation" applicable to that as well as to the octavo edition; as, by a curious coincidence, the folio and the octavo editions terminate at nearly the same period. By this very admirable mode of publication, those who wish to possess the modern State Trials, either as a separate work or as a supplement to either of the collections, may be provided with it accordingly.
Algebra of the Hindus, with Arithmetic and Mensuration ; translated from the Sanscrit, by H. T. Colebrooke, Esq. 4to.
No II. of the new and enlarged edition of H. Stephens' Greek Thesaurus, is just published. To this number is added an Index of all the words which are discussed in this and the previous number, distin
guishing by a star such as are not contained in the Thes. as published by H. Steph. All the arrangements being now completed by the very recent arrival of Professor Schæfer's copious MS. materials, which the editors have purchased at considerable expense, the work will proceed without delay, and the editors confidently expect that they will be able to announce the publica tion of the third number very speedily. The two first numbers contain about 2000 words omitted by Stephens. A learned pupil of Lenneps is now engaged in transcribing the notes of Ruhnken and Valkenaer, written on the margin of a Leyden Scapula. The editors have carefully perused the parts already published, for the purpose of ascer taining any typographical errors, and in tend to follow Stephens' example in subscribing to the General Index a complete list of errata.
Mr T. Moore has in the press, and will speedily publish, Lalla Rookh, an oriental romance. Oriental imagery seems to be so admirably adapted to the style and genius of Mr Moore, that we form high expectations of the merit and interest of this work.
