"Necessity, as well as inclination, drew Mr Flinders Petrie's party last winter into the wilderness of Sinai. That he has been richly rewarded, not merely by the more accurate examination of old finds, but by new and unexpected discoveries, is clearly attested by the present handsome volume."-Scotsman.
"It is no exaggeration to say that it is the most exhaustive work on the archeology of this historic peninsula that ever has appeared or ever will appear. The reason for this last statement is clearly set forth by the author, and is a record of one of the greatest acts of vandalism known. The most important portion of the work, however, is the description of the Hathor Temple at Serabit-el-Khadem. Space will not permit of our dealing so fully with these chapters as they deserve; but no student of religion should neglect the valuable material the author has gathered. In conclusion, we may say that this is a most valuable book, well written, lavishly illustrated, and well indexed." -Globe.
"This work, with its lavish amount of illustration and wealth of research, is, we have no hesitation in saying, the best book Professor Petrie has produced, and it will long remain the standard work on this historical peninsula, which links the African and Asiatic continents together."-Daily Chronicle.
"If proof were needed of the ancient overlordship of Egypt over the Bedawyn of the peninsula, it is supplied by Professor Petrie. Of profound interest to Biblical scholars. Mr Petrie's ingenious theory restores to the Biblical story the historical verisimilitude, the lack of which was urged with great force by Bishop Colenso in the middle of last century. It should be added that the book is lavishly adorned with interesting and valuable photographs, taken by members of the expedition.”—Daily Telegraph.
"Mr Flinders Petrie's great work. Mr Flinders Petrie has added a new chapter to the exploration of the world."— Church Times.

MURRAY'S NEW ILLUSTRATED
Combining Modern Research with Ancient Faith Editor: The Rev. WILLIAM C. PIERCY, M.A.,
DEAN OF WHITELANDS COLLEGE, CHELSEA.
In One Volume. Price 21s.; half-morocco, 25s.
1. A volume of 1000 pages.
2. Profusely Illustrated, with Original Sketches, Reproductions from Photographs, Diagrams, and Coloured Maps. 3. Special attention has been paid to Bibliography, which has not before been attempted in a similar work of this size.
4. Signed Articles by Leading Scholars and Experts.
The size and price of this Dictionary make it available for many who cannot afford those published in several volumes, or who wish for a more handy book of reference; while the addition of Bibliographies to all important articles enable those who desire to do so to pursue any subject further; and the present volume should be found especially useful to students at the Universities, Theological Colleges and Schools, the busy parochial clergy, and the laity.
Special attention has been paid to the illustrations, which it is hoped are such as will prove a really valuable aid to the understanding of the Bible.

A POPULAR HISTORY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND, from the Earliest Times to the Present Day. By the Right Rev. WILLIAM BOYD-CARPENTER, Bishop of Ripon. With Illustrations. Cheap Edition. Large Crown 8vo. 2s. 6d. net.
"The title is, perhaps, hardly wide enough for the contents; one would almost call the book a history of Christianity in England. He has the true judicial spirit, and is passionately eager to be entirely fair to every one. His history is impartial to the last degree. His book should have a very wide circulation, and can do nothing but good wherever it is read."Morning Post.
