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.

my unprofitableness, I concluded that when I could not do what I ought,
I ought to do what I could, which I shall further endeavour in a second
part in the meanwhile, adieu."
