trie, les sciences, les mœurs, les usages des anciens habitans

conseiller privé d'etat de S. M. Imperiale et Royale. 8vo. 2 vols.

Boston (Paris.)
Reprinted in 1792. Translated from the Italian, with notes, by M.

Lefebure de Villebrune. Count Carli states that his object is to confute
the assertions of M. de Pauw, in his Recherches Philosophiques sur les
Americains, and to shew that the Americans were descended from the
ancient Atlantides. He ascribes to the Mexicans and Peruvians the
greatest perfection in the arts and sciences, as well as in their political in-
stitutions. The Count also believes that traces of the religious rites and
customs of the church of Rome were found among them, and that they
practised ceremonies which, in their form and design, resembled baptism,

and the communion of bread and wine.

preparatory to a new history of America, by a gentleman resident on that continent. As a catalogue, no more can be said than tbat it is a curiosity, and required much patient labour to form it.” M.R. Part of this work is an abridgment of White Kennett's Bib. Am. (1713): the remainder is principally taken from the Monthly Review.
