LMONG the Variety of fmall Books publifhed
For.'ijje Inftruction of Youth, there appears not to have
been any of this Kind yet offered for their Amufement;
and as this pleafing Method of teaching Children has
been found, by Experience, to be an eafy Way of leading them on in Readitig, the Author has been induced,
though at a confiderable Expenfe, to publifh this fmall
Hieroglyphick Bible, with a Defign to give them
an early Tafte for the Holy Scriptures, and to engage
them, as they advance in Years, more earneftly and fe-
rioufly in the Study of the facred Books of the CWand
New Teftaments.
The 'pious and early Inftruction of Children, is certainly a material Part of every Parent's Duty ; and
Youth has at all Times been much benefited, whea
by Means of lively and ftriking Images, the raoft remarkable Things that exift in the World are reprefenfc*
eel to them ; efpecially if the Hif^ory of the Holy Scriptures isimprinted into them in their younger Days.
It is, above all, a great Advantage, when thofe P'er-
fons who have the conftant Care and Infpeotion over
young Children, and therewith gain an Afcendency or
Power over fuch tender Minds, to guide their Thoughts
 mm*-
Vlll

and Inclinations as they pleafe. (I fay, when thefe Fer-
fons are able and fit to inftrucl; and teach the Children.)
And when they pofTefs that Capacity to excite a Defire
for Knowledge, which naturally dwells) in our Hearts,'!
it is an agreeable Method to reprefent pleafing Figures
to them : Let the proper Time never flip, when young
Infants fhow an Inclination to receive Inftrucrion ; but
do not compel Children to learn certain Talks in certain
xneafured Hours, for luch Cornpulfion, or Conflraint is
oftener an obflacle than an Encouragement towards
learning the necefTary and ufeful Sciences.
To render this fmall Book ufeful and inftrucling, we
have followed in chufing PafTages from Holy Scripture
the Order obferved therein ; beginning with the Crea- ,
tion, and finifhed with the Redemption of Mankind I
interfperfed with felect moral Doclrines j and of all this
we have quoted the mofl remarkable Places in the Old
and Ne!w Tefiaments.
The whole Sentences, which give an Explanation of
the Figures, are placed at the Bottom of each Page; and
the Words, which are reprefented by Figures, are particularly diftinguifhed in Itallck. By fuch facilitated and
' pleafing Means all fenfible and well educated Mothers,
Governefles, and Nurfes, have it in their Power to teach
and inftrucl: even the youngeft Children with proper I-
deas of the raoft important Doctrines, and make them
"*farly acquainted with the momentous truths in the
Word of God. IslEr Hfe
