We have to notice a very elegant and convenient edition

of The Bible. (Oxford University Press.)—It is bound in flexible morocco covers, which overlap so as to keep out dust. The type, though the volume of the Bible is smaller than what is commonly called the Polyglot, is re- markably clear, and the paper is of excellent quality. It is furnished with some well-executed maps. The technical name is "Pearl, 16nao.". In a volume of similar character we have Church Services.—We have also received a Common Prayer-Book, small enough for the waistcoat- pocket, and light enough to go by post for a penny stamp. The type is, nevertheless, clear, but the paper is too thin, and thus the type on one side of the page gives a confused effect to the type on the other side.
