In offering a new edition of the Holy SCRIPTURES to the attention of the Christian public, but little need be said in the way of introduction. In every department of learning, the artist has co-operated with the printer in beauti fying and embellishing literature; but in respect to the Sacred Volume, there has not yet been produced an edition which has had concentrated upon it the skill and taste of the first artists, and afforded at a price within the reach of persons in the most moderate circumstances.

To produce a Family BIBLE suitable alike for all members of the household, and combining in itself all the advantages of the ample folio page, elegance of typography, and convenience of daily use, was a work to which the publishers devoted the most earnest attention; and they feel confident that no other edition of the Scriptura surpasses or even equals the present in beauty of typography and elegance of form..

The Text, which is that of the most correct copies of the authorized version, is accompanied by all the margi nal readings usually printed therewith, and which form a very important part of the translation.

The REFERENCES to PARALLEL Texts are very numerous and accurate, and embody the most valuable of those given by HENRY, CLARKE, Scott, and others.

Tue Notes, amounting to many thousands, are full, yet concise--learned, yet clear and simple. The great aim bas been to give the reader all the needful help to the understanding the force and meaning of the Sacred Word; and it will be found that they contain the SUBSTANCE of the researches of the illustrious commentators and critics on the Bible, as Lowth, Blayney, Patrick, Henry, Doddridge, Scott, Clarke, Whitby, Campbell, etc.
