the author is so extravagant in his praises of Elfrida, that we lose the critic in the panegyrift.
VIII. Beauty in danger; or an account of a new distemper communicated by the lips, with an attempt to cure it. 4to. 6s. Owen.
Whatever our readers may think of us after so frank a declaration, we must honestly confess, that we do not understand this performance; which must either proceed from the author's want of perspicuity in explaining his meaning, or from our dulness of apprehension.
IX. N. R.'s account of himself. 8vo. 2s. 6d. Cooper.
A dull, tedious, triAing declamation about some milunderstandings between two persons in the country; below the notice of any one, except the parties concerned.
X. Candid remarks on some particular pasages in the 5th edition of mr. Whitefield's sermons. printed in 1750. 8vo. I s. Newbery.
We have here a number of sensible observations on some of those doctrinal points by which mr. Whitefield has fo fuccessfully wrought upon the passions of his followers, and so powerfully recommended himself to the common people ; on many of whom these remarks might probably have a very good effect, if they would read them with the fame spirit of moderation, and deference to common sense, with which they are penn'd by their judicious author.
XI. A view of the expediency and credibility of miraculous powers among the primitive christians, after the decease of the apostles
. Represented in a charge delivered to the clergy of the archdeaconry of Sudbury, &c. By John Chapman, D.D. 4t0. 4 s. boards. Birt.
In the first part of this charge the doctor endeavours to thew, that, from the plain design of the chriftian religion, and the fate of heathenism in the Roman empire, a very strong presumption (next to a moral demonstration) arises to us, à priori, for a continuance of some miraculous powers to the church, till the year of Chritt 324. After this he proceeds to establish the general truth of the primitive testimonies with regard to the miraculous powers, and in his notes on the charge, which make two thirds of the work, displays a great deal of learning, without advancing any thing, as far as we are able to judge, that throws new light on the controversy.
The X 11. XII. The evidence for christianity contained in the Hebrew words Aleim and Berit, ftated and defended, &c. Being an answer to dr. Sharp's two dissertations concerning the etymology and scripture-meaning of these words. By James Mody, rector of Dunton in Bucks. 8vo. 2s.6d. Withers.
The title of this performance is sufficient, we apprehend, to give our readers fome idea of what may be expected from it.
A XIII. The Lord's-day evening entertainment. By John Mafon, A.M. vols. 3. & 4. 8vo.
8vo. Buckland, &c. See Review, vol. V. for our account of the two firft volumes of this work, p. 387.
MEDICAL. XIV. A letter from an apothecary in London, to his friend in the country; concerning the present practice of phyfic, in regard to empirics, empirical methods of cure, and noftrums: with remarks on the method of curing the itch by externals only. Also observations on manna, and dr. Mead's cure for the bite of a mad-dog. 8vo. I S. Cooper.
Several things are to be found in this pamphlet, worthy the notice of medical readers, or others, who would be infor med concerning the subjects mentioned above.
XV. An enquiry into the origin, nature, and cure of the small-pox. By Thomas Thompson, M.D. 8vo. 35. few'd. Millar.
There is little in this performance, more than may be found in James's physical di&ionary, under the article Variola, which was furnished by this author; who has now prefixed a remarkable address, to dr Mead; in which he finds many faults with the present discipline in the general administration of pbyfic; and is particularly severe on the apothecaries. It is observable, that tho' the title of this treatise mentions the cure of the small-pox, it concludes wichout any practical directions relating to it, which the author refers to a future work.
XVI. A collection of receipts in pbyfic, being the entire practice of an eminent phyfician; containing a cumpleat body of prescriptions answering to every disease: with some in surgery. To which are added, by the editor, occasional remarks, directions, and cautions, fuited to the different stages of distempers, in order to render this work particularly useful in families. 8vo. 25. L. Davis.
The title of this book sufficiently indicates what readers it is chiefly adapted to. , .
