Contains 80 pages in roman and italic letter of various sizes, besides A brief note,' and 'A necessary Advertisement' prefixed; as also 'An Epistle in meter' at the end. This curious and estimable treatise, which we are told is only a prelude or preface to another larger volume, not published, though anonymously, as by an unknown friend, was written by the famous Dr. John Dee, and is owned by him in his Discourse apologetical to Abp. Whitgift, in 1595. Only one hundred copies printed. There is a copy in the Brit. Museum, with a long MS. of Dr. Dee's annexed to it, which seems to be a kind of continuation of the subject.

DE FOE'S (DANIEL) WORKS. All those to which a black letter capital is prefixed have been republished in one or other of the four modern collections of his works, enumerated at page 621, which are thus indicated: S. Scott; L. Lewis; H. Hazlitt; B. Bohn.

DEFOE, Daniel. The Weekly Review. Lond. 1704-13. 4to. 9 vols. The first number of this periodical publication, (far superior to any thing which had hitherto appeared) was printed on the 19th of Feb. 1704, repeated every Saturday and Tuesday until 1705, and after that three times a week until its termination in May, 1713. Chalmers, in 1841, 8 vols. 41. A copy from Feb. 19, 1704, to March 23, 1710, is in the British Museum. This work paved the way for, and set the example of that species of writing soon afterwards carried to its perfection in the Tatlers and Spectators.

This composer, much respected in his time for purity of harmony and gravity of style, was organist to Q. Henrietta Maria. Defence of Peace; lately trans-a lated out of Laten into Englysshe.

To Volume 2 the following title was prefixed: A review of the affairs of France, with observations on transactions at Home.' Lond. 1705, 4to., and Volumes 3 to 8 were entitled A Review of the state of the English nation,' 1706, 4to.

Though Lowndes and others indicate 9 vols., there is no volume 9 of the Review. It is complete in 8 volumes, the last terminating on the 29th of July, 1712. The only perfect copy known is that purchased at Chalmers' sale by Mr. Crossley. At the close of the 8th volume, De Foe commenced new paper under a similar title, but of a

larger size, each number consisting of only one leaf. A few numbers only exist. The



latest one known is in Mr. Crossley's session, the heading of which is Vol. 1 Review, no. 85, page 169-70, Saturday, April 18, 1713.

ther adventures of Robinson Crusoe, being the second and last part of his life, &c. Lond. 1719, 8vo. pp. 373,' was entered at Stationers' Hall, 17 August, 1719. A second edition, with a map of the world, ap

pears to have been published in the same year. This map was afterwards used in the fourth edition of the first part.

A spurious ABRIDGMENT of the first part was published by T. Cox, Amsterdam Coffee House, in 12mo. 1719, of which Taylor, the publisher of the Genuine edition, warns the public by an advertisement in the St. James's Post, dated Aug. 7, 1719.

Intelligence, Wednesday, Oct. 1719, occurs which was continued on the first leaf of the commencement of Robinson Crusoe, each succeeding number without intermission to No. 289, Oct. 19, 1720, (and not as Dibdin states, and Lowndes copies, 7 Oct., 1719), being the end of the second volume of Robinson Crusoe.

Mr. Wilson, the biographer of Defoe, observes, 'The popularity of the work no doubt occasioned it to be printed in The Original London Post or Heathcote's Intelligence; but it is not impossible that Taylor sold Heathcote the right of printThe Life and strange surprising it in his paper. In No. 125 of the ing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, of York, Mariner: who lived eight and twenty years all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the coast of America, near the mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; having been cast on shore by shipwreck, wherein all the men perished but himself.

All the above-mentioned editions are in the Grenville Library, British Museum.

'Defoe,' says Mr. Park, has been

charged with surreptitiously appropriating the papers of Alexander Selkirk (See Robinson Crusoe is the most popular, SELKIRK) in the formation of this celedelightful, and extraordinary of all De- brated work: but the charge. though refoe's Works, and has lost none of its ori-peatedly and confidently brought, appears ginal attraction, even at the distance of a century. Dr. Johnson observed, 'nobody ever laid it down without wishing it were longer.'

Lowndes says Robinson Crusoe first appeared in a periodical publication, entitled The Original London Post, or Heathcote's Intelligence, from Nos. 125 to No. 289 inclusively the latter, dated 7 October, 1719. But this is an error, copied from Dibdin's Library Companion, p. 607, and repeated since by the compilers of the Grenville Catalogue and other Bibliographers. The following is the correct state


to be destitute of foundation.' Some have assumed that Arbuthnot, others that Harley, Earl of Oxford, wrote the first part, and put it into the hands of Defoe, who wrote the second. But these assertions are without sufficient foundation, and are refuted by Wilson.
