The first seven volumes of this work are a translation of the four volumes
published by Astley, (No. 14, 1745.) Volumes VIII. to XV. were compiled by the translator of the preceding volumes, the Abbé Prevost. The sixteenth volume, printed in 1761, is a general index to the work. The seventeenth volume is a supplement containing the restitutions and additions of the edition printed in Holland. The three remaining volumes are a continuation of the work by MM. Querlon and de Leyre, containing the voyages omitted by the abbé, or which had been published after his death. Laharpe says that, if the whole of the work bad been as well edited as the three last volumes, his abridgment would have been unnecessary. The twentieth volume has the date of 1802. “This quarto edition is still esteemed for the beauty of the engravings, by able artists, after the designs of Cochin, and on account of the maps and plans, which are also well executed. Large paper copies sell for double and triple the price of the common paper.” Bibliothèque des Voyages. Reprinted at the Hague, in twenty-five volumes in quarto, and in Paris in 1749, and following years, in eighty volumes, 12mo., but these editions are not much esteemed. It was translated into German, and printed at Leipsic in 1747, and following
years. 9 IDEA DE UNA HISTORIA GENERAL de la America Septentrional.

and, desirous of writing the history of that kingdom, he made, during eight years he remained there, the most diligent researches into its antiquity; acquired a considerable mastery of the Mexican language, entered into friendship with the Indians to obtain their ancient pictures from them, and procured copies of many valuable manu
anuscripts wbich were in the libraries of the monasteries. The museum which he formed of paintings and ancient manuscripts was the most numerous and select ever seen in that kingdom excepting that of the celebrated Siguenza; but, before he put a band to the work, the jealousy of the Spanish government stripped him of all his literary estate, and sent him into Spain, where, being entirely cleared from every suspicion against bis loyalty and honour, but without recovering his manuscripts, he published this sketch of the great history he was meditating. It contains much important information not before published,
but there are also some errors in it." Clavigero. 10 ESCUDO DE ARMAS DE Mexico. Celestial proteccion de esta

the governors of William and Mary College. Williamsburg. 8vo. pp. 331, appendix, pp. 34. Reprinted in London in 1753. This is but a small part of the author's
intended work, coming down to the year 1624 only. “An appendix contains a collection of charters, relating to the period comprised in the volume. Besides the copious materials of Smith, the author derived assistance from the manuscripts of his uncle, Sir John Randolph, and from the records of the London company, put into his hands by Colonel William Byrd, president of the council, and from the valuable library of this gentleman. Mr. Stith was a man of classical learning, and a faithful historian; but he was destitute of taste in style, and his details are ex
ceedingly minute.” Allen. 2 The HISTORY OF FIVE INDIAN NATIONS OF CANADA
