With a Notice of the Life and Character of Gibbon, and Watson's Reply to Gibbon. In 2 vols. imp. 8vo., 1073 pp.--sheep, marble edges. Price $6 00. We have the pleasure of presenting the following notice of Guizot's Gibbon, from the Committee of Selection, to he patrons of the Historical Family Library :
The great work of Gibbon embraces a long and interesting period of history, respecting which the English reader nas few other sources of information. The vast amount of facts which it embodies, and their skillful exhibition, will lways render it a popular work.
This edition, with ample corrections, was first prepared in Paris, in 1812, by M. Guizot, who has since so highly listinguished himself as a minister of state, and the head of one of the political parties in France.
Though this is a work of such acknowledged importance and merit, it has never yet appeared in an English dress. The translations of Guizo's Notes and Correcions, by a person every way qualified for the task, has greatly enhanced the value of a work which, from its first appearance, has been regarled as a standard in English Historical Literature.
