MANY publications have been issued, not a few of which were styled “ Foxe's Complete Book of Martyrs,"containing but a small portion of the original Work in matter, and a still smaller of its spirit, made up principally of horrifying accounts of the sufferings of some of the Martyrs, a great part of which was never written by John Foxe, but leaving out many of its most affecting details, its unanswerable vindications of Protestant principles, its narratives of the gradual growth of the heresies and errors of Rome, and its able and lucid arguments on the controversy touching the Reformation. The present Work is printed from that of 1684, in 3 vols. folio, (the last complete edition published,) and collated with the earlier editions; various errors in dates and other matters, which had been carried through the subsequent editions, are corrected. Indelicate descriptions are expunged, and nothing unfit for general reading retained. It is now, therefore, essentially a Family book.

Complete in Eleven Parts at 2s., or in Twenty-two at ls, each, Imperial 8vo., printed on the finest paper. Also, in one handsome volume, bound in cloth at 24s.

LONDON, EDINBURGH, AND DUBLIN:
