EXTRACT FROM THE PREFACE. "The general object of this work is to promote the intelligent use of the Sacred Volume by furnishing

a mass of information respecting Palestine, and the manners, customs, religion, literature, arts

, and attainments of the inhabitants; an account of the countries and races with which the Hebrews had relations, together with some notice of all the persons and places mentioned in the Bible and Apocrypha. The history and authority of the books themselves are discussed conjointly and severally. I have been anxious to study the best authorities for what is asserted, and to bring up the information to the most modern standard. I have pot written hastily, therefore, but have spent some years in the compilation of this volume.”

“Among the books which should find a place in the collection of every Christian man, who seeks to have in his possession anything beyond a Bible and Hymn-book, we know of none more valuable than 'The Treasury of Bible Knowledge. It is in all respects the best, as it is the most convenient manual for the Biblical student yet published. We hope to see this work in the hands of every Sunday-school and Bible-class teacher.”—American Baptist.

"** * One of the most valuable publications ever issued by that house."—New Yorker,
