the map which accompanies it. The book was no doubt got up by some

It is, however, rich in English tracts relating to New England. The catalogue was drawn up by Bishop Kennett, but the very complete iudex, which occupies nearly half the volume, was formed by the Rev. Robert Watts. Dr. Dibdin states that this work was reprinted in 1791, but this is a mistake, the Bibliotheca Americana of that date being a distinct work, in which the titles of many books are so carelessly abridged that it is
difficult to make out what is intended. 2 JOURNAL HISTORIQUE du dernier voyage que feu M. de la Sale

M. de la Sale, in his unfortunate expedition. He says that Joutel had complained to him, that when the work was prepared for the press, some alterations were made by the editor, (M. Michel.) This translation was
republished, with a new title in 1719. 2 The laws of the province of Pennsylvania, collected into one volume.
