BOOKS PUBLISHED BY JOHN BOHN.
ÆSCHYLUS’ PROMETHEUS and AGAMEMNON, translated from the Greek by George Croker Fox, Esq. To which is prefixed The Death of Demosthenes, a dramatic Poem, and other Rhymes; foolscap 8vo. cloth, 8s.
“The Prometheus is translated with correctness and spirit, and in a masculine and severe style, suitable to its subject, and to the genius of the original poet. We give the same praise to the Agamemnon.”
APOLOGY for CATHEDRAL SERVICE; crown 8vo. bds. 8s.
“A very elegant and instructive little volume.”
“We have to make our apology to the author of this clever volume, for having delayed expressing our admiration of it...... We cannot praise the scholar–like elegance, the various reading, the keen remark, the quiet humour, the well chosen quotations, the sound argument, which support and adorn the work, without bearing witness also to the feeling of sincere piety, and to the Churchman’s well–grounded faith, that give a strong and steady lustre to the whole.”
“This is a very delightful work, and contains much more than its title implies. The style is quaint and original, and reminds us of that of some of our old writers. It is throughout enriched with a number of curious and interesting quotations and illustrations, which display considerable information and research. It is full of the spirit of antiquity, if we may use such an expression, and is deeply imbued with a love for those admirable and venerable institutions which we owe to the wisdom of past ages. The defence of the practice of chanting, of the whole Cathedral Service, and, indeed, of Cathedral institutions altogether, is excellent, and will repay an attentive perusal.”
“This elegantly printed volume is inscribed to the poet Wordsworth, and is not alien to the spirit of that gentle and accomplished bard.”
ARRIAN on COURSING. The Cynegeticus of the Younger Xenophon, translated from the Greek, with Classical and Practical Annotations, and a brief Sketch of the Life of the Author. To which is added an Appendix, containing some Account of the Canes Venatici of Classical Antiquity, by a Graduate of Medicine (the Rev. Wm. Dansey); with 24 embellishments from the Antique, on India paper, imperial 8vo. (only 250 copies printed), extra boards, 1l. 11s 6d.
“To the translator of Arrian we are highly indebted for a most ample and almost inexhaustible fund of amusing, interesting, practical, useful, and instructive information on the subject, which cannot fail to be highly acceptable and interesting to all amateurs of the leash.”
—Thacker on Coursing.
“The reader who is curious about the art of coursing, will find the results of vast reading and not slender experience brought together in an agreeable manner by this translator and annotator of Arrian’s celebrated treatise.”

“A very clever, humorous brochure, full of good hits and amusing satire.”
—Gentleman’s Magazine for 1842, p. 189.
DESCANT upon RAILROADS, by X. A. P. crown 8vo. 1s. 6d.
“Those who are unacquainted with my former Descant, and not aware of the flexile laws by which this species of composition is governed, may not perceive at the first glance the relation between some of my paragraphs and my main purpose. Let me, therefore, be allowed to intimate, before I proceed any further, that a prose descant partakes of the nature of a voluntary upon the organ. In either case the performer is presumed to have well considered his subject, and to have made a distinct sketch of it beforehand. But he is discharged from some strict observances to which he must in other cases submit. He is at liberty to interject at will, and in his own particular manner, any idea that may flash across his mind while engaged in executing his design, provided it appear to discerning judges to blend with his theme, and be so brought in as not to contravene those general rules which all compositions are bound to respect.”
NUTTALL’S (Dr. P. A.) CLASSICAL and ARCHÆOLOGICAL DICTIONARY of the Manners, Customs, Laws, Institutions, Arts, &c. of the celebrated Nations of Antiquity and of the Middle Ages. To which is prefixed A Synoptical and Chronological View of Ancient History, 8vo. (published at 16s.) cloth, 12s.
PRIAULX’S (Osmond de Beauvoir) QUÆSTIONES MOSAICÆ: or the Book of Genesis compared with the Remains of Ancient Religions, 8vo. extra boards, 15s.
“Exhibiting much learned research and written in the calm spirit of philosophical investigation.
“A work of remarkable research and originality”
“Superficial and egotistic—sceptical and contemptuous—the book has neither stamina nor style to pervert; nay not even to captivate the fanciful”
