AMONGST the books to which Sussex has given birth, one of the most curious is Turner's " Remarkable Providences." This im­pressive folio is perhaps best described by its very full title page:—"A Compleat History of the Most Remarkable Providences, Both of Judgment and Mercy, Which have Hapned in this Present Age. Extracted from the Best Writers, the Author's own Observations, and the Numerous Relations sent him from divers Parts of the Three Kingdoms. To which is Added, Whatever is Curious in the Works of Nature and Art. The Whole Digested into One Volume, under Proper Heads; being a Work set on Foot Thirty Years ago, by the Reverend Mr. Poole, Author of the Synopsis Criticorum : and since Undertaken and Finished, By William Turner, M.A., Vicar of Walberton, in Sussex. Recommended as useful to Ministers in Furnish­ing Topicks of Reproof and Exhortation, and to Private Christians for their Closets and Families.
