FOR THE SUNDAY-SCHOOL UNION OF THE METHODIST EPISCOPAL
CHURCH, 200 MULBERRY-STREET.
JOSEPH LONG KING, PRINTER.
The works on Jewish customs and Scripture antiquities hitherto published, have usually been either very meager or very voluminous and expensive. A convenient manual like the present, embracing the best information of modern times, and illustrated by good engravings, had long been needed by practical students of the Bible.
The present volume having been issued by the Religious Tract Society, to meet this want in England, has been found highly worthy of reproduction for a similar purpose in America. The revision has been chiefly confined to the omission of some irrelevant matter, and the alteration of such expressions as were adapted to English readers only.
The “Jewish Nation,” as represented in this work, may be confidently commended to the attention of ministers of the Gospel, Sunday-school teachers, and Christian families.
New-York, January, 1850.
