Excerpt from A Dictionary of Important Names, Objects, and Terms, Found in the Holy Scriptures: Intended Principally for YouthProductions that are the result of labour, more than of genius, lie under two great disadvantages - the pleas ure of composing is incomparably less, and the composi tion itself is held in far less estimation. The author's only motive in undertaking the drudgery of preparing this volume was, that such a work seemed to him not only eminently needed for youth, but almost indispensa ble while nothing of the kind existed within his knowl edge. It was chie?y prepared at small intervals of leisure While travelling as General Agent of the American Sun day Sclrool Union, and has now been retained nearly three years, in the h0pe that some more perfect work of the kind would appear. During this time it has been kept at hand for the purpose of inserting whatever seemed ap propriate in the current religious periodicals, missionary reports, &c. The chief sources of aid, however, have been the works of Calmet, Whitby, Wells, Carpenter, Brown,* Wood, Paxton, and Harmer. Extracts have in some instances been taken, as well as facts, or thoughts; but references seemed unnecessary.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
