Excerpt from Time's Telescope for 1828, or a Complete Guide to the Almanack: Containing an Explanation of Saints' Days and Holidays; With Illustrations of British History and Antiquities; Existing and Obsolete Rites and Customs, Sketches of Comparative Chronology, and Contemporary Bio... graphy
When so many attempts are made to corrupt the minds of the rising generation, through the medium of elementary books of ia struction, it a¿'ords us pleasure to be able to recommend an attrac tive work, which is entirely free from the taint of bad principles. Time's Telescope is an agreeable miscellany, worthy of the atten tion of all classes of readers, but particularly of intelligent young persons, to whom it will convey much useful and entertaining ih formation ou the various subjects mentioned in its title. The whole is interspersed with numerous anecdotes, antiquarian references, historical facts, and poetical selections; admirably calculated to excite a taste for knowledge, and to render its acquisition easy and agreeable. We have looked through the volume, and are happy to find that, in a literary melange of so much extent and variety, there is so little to which persons of serious religion can object, and so much which they will cordially applaud.' - wesleyan-methodist Magazine.
