CIRCUMSTANCEs having occurred which will interrupt for a while the continuation of this work, it has been determined to publish that part of it which comprehends the whole of the last century by itself.
With the continuation it is proposed to publish a Supplement, which will contain an account of numerous Works belonging to the last century, which have been met with since these sheets were sent to press. A general Alphabetical Index will be given at the end of the Work.
Mr. Rich will be happy to treat with any public Establishment for the whole of his Collection of Books relating to America, which contains many Works not to be found in any similar collection.

MDCCIII. 1 New voyages to North America. Containing an account
of the several nations of that vast continent; their customs, commerce, and way of navigation upon the lakes and rivers ; the several attempts of the English and French to dispossess one another; with the reasons of the miscarriage of the former; and the various adventures between the French and the Iroquese confederates of England, from 1683 to 1694. A geographical description of Canada, and a natural history of the country, with remarks upon their government, and the interest of the English and French in their commerce.
Also a dialogue between the author and a general of the savages, giving a full view of the religion and strange opinions of those people; with an account of the author's retreat to Portugal and Denmark, and his remarks on those courts. To which is added, a Dictionary of the Algonkine language, which is generally spoken in North America. Illustrated with twentythree maps and cuts.

London. 8vo. 2 vols. Reprinted in 1735. First printed in French in this year. Lahontan was
a freethinker, and consequently had but little respect for the clergy; it is not therefore to be wondered at that he was persecuted in France, and his work traduced. The character given of the author and of the work by the Jesuits has been adopted by later writers, who ought to have known better. A writer in the North Americau Review observes, that the Baron seems to bave been an ardent and enterprising character, with more wit than discretion, but that his accounts bear every mark of
