PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.

THE first edition of the Book of Reference was issued in 1844, and met with a ready sale. The edition was exhausted about five years since, and, as the work was not stereotyped, the original publishers did not feel disposed to run the risk of issuing another. The call for the work for the few years past, from all parts of the country, has been constant and urgent; and, with the belief that in its revised and improved form it is calculated to do great good, it is now offered to the public.
