NEW VOLUMES, NOW READY

A Present Member of Harvard University.

By Martin KELLOGG Schermerhorn

I. WORLD-RELIGION SACRED SCRIPTURES

(Third Edition, but entirely re-translated and revised with many omissions of less important selections in order to make room for new and most valuable selections gathered from the Ethnic Scriptures after thirty-five years of wide research and constant study.)

Mr. Andrew Carnegie [see letter in Appendix of World-Religion Sacred Scriptures] wrote: "I have purchased this book by the half-dozen several times and sent to friends." Through his unsolicited generosity the price of two volumes has been placed at the actual cost of publishing and delivery-- so that all interested in Cosmopolitan Religion and Ethics may be able to procure them. For the first and second editions of World Religion Sacred Scriptures a large number of very favorable Press and Personal Commendations were received by their publishers, George Putnam's Sons of New York and London, a few of which may be found in the Appendix of the new edition. Prof. Max Mueller of Oxford University wrote an Introduction, Dr. James Martineau, Herbert Spencer, James Freeman Clarke, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and other leading scholars of world-wide minds and sympathies joined in the commendations.

"The self-evident Truth and Beauty of all the Sacred Scriptures of the World is gathered in this volume."

"Grain gathered from the straw, pearls gathered from the shells, gold gathered from the depths and debris of mines."

"The most important volume ever yet published."

"All partisan religions and sects, of every names and form in the whole world today, are slowly dying of dry rot as recently has affirmed a noted clergyman of one of the oldest and largest of the Christian Denominations. Nothing can save them except the cosmopolitan and truly catholic teachings of world-Religion as set forth in this volume."

II. WORLD-RELIGION HYMNS AND PRAYERS

These volumes may be purchased at Harvard Co-operative and W. B. Clarke Co., 26-28 Tremont Street, Boston; also through leading booksellers for $2.00 and $1.50.

Copies of these volumes of World-Religion are presented to a limited number of catholic spirited World-educators--college professors and students, teachers and preachers, editors and authors, lecturers and reformers who are known to be cosmopolitan in thought and method. An essential condition of all benefactions to public libraries, etc., by Mr. Carnegie is the entire disuse of partisan or sectarian names and dogmas; and the Presentation Copies are proffered in the same cosmopolitan and genuinely catholic spirit. Those who are not and are determined not to become cosmopolitan and catholic spirited in this sense will find no interest in either of these volumes, whether accepted as Presentation Copies or purchased at the bookseller's.

Cosmopolitan Assemblies of World-Religion, in which these volumes will be used for Common Worship and Conversational Instruction, open to members of Harvard University and graduates of other colleges, are held as publicly and privately announced at Bromley Court, cor. Prescott St. and Broadway, Cambridge, conducted by Rev. M. K. Schermerhorn.
