6706 (F. Arn. Brockhaus u. L. Hain) allgemeine deutsche Realencyklopädie für die gebildeten Stände. (Conversationslexikon). 5th original edition. Lpz., Brockhaus, 1819. 8°. 10 vols. (splendid paper

12 d. 12 gr. On writing paper 18 d. 18 gr., large 8°. printing paper 22 d., large 8°. fine printing paper 28 d., large 8°. vellum paper 45 d.).

It will not be uninteresting to find here authentic intelligence respecting a work, which, notwithstanding the confined circuit of the German language, and its

being edited in a country separated in so many respects in manners and opinion, has nevertheless spread to an extent. throughout the whole of Europe, and even beyond it, which even that great encyclopedia, composed in the universal language of the fashionable world, and written in one of the Capitals that sways the opinions of Europe, cannot boast.

The first idea of the work originated with Dr. Loebel: it was completed under the inspection of F. Arn. Brockhaus, who also began the 2nd edition. From the 2nd vol. of this edition he associated in 1812 Dr. L. Hain with himself, and both have carried it on together since that time.

The first edition appeared, 1796, (new title, 1809) in 6 vols., and 2 supplemental vols. of 1809-11. The 2nd edition commenced in 1812, and was advanced as far as the 5th vol. (during which time the first 2 vols. had already been struck off again with alterations), when the first 4 vols. were obliged to be reprinted. These were considerably altered, and received the title of the 3d edition. After the completion of the first 7 vols. these appeared with the title of the 4th edition. The 8-10th vols. followed in the 2nd edition, but some of the copies, for the sake of uniformity, received the title of the 2d, 3d, or 4th edition, as it is stated in the preface. The 5th edition is entirely recast in the whole 10 vols., a statement, which taken in its strict sense, only relates to the first vols. But these first vols., when all the reprints are reckoned, have been printed probably eight times since 1812 (the 1st and 2d vols. indeed ten times).

What the 4th edition has over and above the earlier editions, has appeared in a supplemental vol. to these editions. The additions and corrections of the 5th appeared also by themselves, for the possessors of the first 4 editions, in 2 supplemental vols., each in 2 divisions. Of the 1st edition about 2000 copies were printed. Of the 2d, 3d, and 4th edition, the number of copies on printing paper and writing paper amounted to about 25,000 copies. Of the 5th edition (which was reprinted even without considerable alterations) more than 14,000 copies were struck off up to March 1820. Of the different original editions
