THE DISSERTATION ON
SAMUEL SHUCKFORD, D.D.
REVISED, CORRECTED, AND GREATLY IMPROVED,
JAMES CREIGHTON, B.A.
IN FOUR VOLUMES,
THE FIFTH EDITION,
an Extensive Jnder.
THIE high rank in the Theological World, which Dr. Shuckford's “ SACRED AND PROFANE HIStory CONNECTED” has hitherto sustained, has again rendered its republication necessary. In laying the Fifth Edition of this Work before the Public, it may not, perhaps, be improper to specify some of its advantages.
When last published, in 1808, the labours of the learned Editor appeared to great disadvantage from the hurried and incorrect manner in which the Work passed through the Press. The faulty passages have been, in this Edition, corrected ; the Scriptural and other authorities, and, in most instances, the quotations, have been compared : indeed, the greatest care has been taken to avoid inaccuracies of every kind.
Anxious to render the present Edition of Dr. SHUCKFORD'S CONNECTION as convenient and useful as possible, the Publisher has added a very copious and much enlarged Index, which will add greatly to the facility of reference. In short, notwithstanding the low price affixed to these Volumes, no effort has been spared to render them in every respect worthy of so learned and masterly a performance.
