A CATALOGUE

OF

BOOKS RELATING TO AMERICA,

Printed since the Year 1800.

MDCCCI. I NOTES on the State of Virginia. By Thomas Jefferson. First 1801. hot pressed edition.

Philadelphia. 8vo. pp. 436. App. 56.

First printed at Paris in 1784, with the date of 1782 on the title. The

questions to wbich this work is an answer, were sent to Mr. Jefferson by
M. Barbé Marbois, at that time Secretary to the French Legation in the
United States. This appears to be the best edition of this work, having
the appendix relating to the murder of Logan's family, printed separately in
1800, and other pieces not in the preceding editions. An edition printed

at Boston in this year is called the 8th American edition.
2 VOYAGES from Montreal, on the River St. Laurence, through the

continent of North America to the Frozen and Pacific Oceans;
in the year 1789 and 1793. With a preliminary account of the
rise, progress, and present state of the Fur Trade of that country.

Illustrated with maps. By Alexander Mackenzie, Esq. 4to. pp. 544. £1. 118. 6d.

Cadell,
“ Mr. Mackenzie's narrative, if sometimes minute and fatiguing, is uniform.

ly distinct and consistent; his observations, thougb not numerous, are sa-
gacious and unassuming ; and the wbole work bears an impression of cor-
rectness and veracity, that leaves no unpleasant feeling of doubt or sus-
picion in the mind of the reader.—of the importance of his geographical
studies we do not think very highly."-Ed. Reo.
