A Smaller Dictionary of the Bible. By W: Smith, LL

D. (Murray).. —This edition, as distinguished from the Large Dictionary and the- Concise Dictionary, is intended for the use of schools and young persons.. It is meant to serve the same purpose in connection with the study oL the Bible that the small classical dictionaries, by the same editor, fulfil in the general routine of education. It seems to contain all the infer- _mation that can possibly be required by the class for which it is in- tended, and in addition to a great number of interesting woodcuts is. furnished with excellent- maps, and a series of views of the most -im- portant places mentioned in the Bible.
