HENRY REES, Aminiftrator. January 13. Encyclopedia, JUST PUBLISHED, By THOMAS DOBSON, Bookseller, at the Stone Houfc, in Second llreet Philadelphia. VOLUME X. OF Encyclopedia ; or Dictionary Of Arts, Sciences, and Miscellaneous Literature, on a Plan entirely new ; BY WHICH The Different Sciences and Arts, are d'tgejled Into the form of Diftindl Treaties or Systems : THIS volume contains principles of Levels Liberty, Doctrine of Light, Lightning, Lock*, Logarithms, Logic, History ol Lon- don, Longitude. Luther, Lydia, Macedon, Madagascar, Magic, Magnetifai, Malts, His tory of Man, Marriage, Mary, Maryland, Masonry, Materia Medica, Meadow, Mecha nics, with a great variety of Biographical and Miscellaneous articles, illuilrated with Twen ty two Copperplates. As a number oft families are still in the country, and it is not generally known who arereturned. T. Dobfon, solicits the favor of the fubfcr bers to calf or fend for their vo lume*;, that they may be supplied as early as poflible. The tf.nth volume of the Encyclopedia is now presented to the public ; but as it makes its appearance in an imperfect state, some ac count of the reason of that imperfedlion should be given. On the Bth of September last, the* Publifker had the misfortune of having his Printing-Office burnt down by a fire which broke out in the neighbourhood, and a great quantity of his printing materials destroyed, and among o flier articles, the figures, with which he was printing the tables of lo garithms, belonging to the present volume, were melfcd down by the violence of the fire. As a supply of these could not be immediately obtained, he was under the neceflity of pub Hilling the volume without these tables; but hopes he (hall be able to publifli them with the next volume which is now in conliderable for- wardnefs. The Publisher embraces this opportunity of expressing his grateful acknowledgments to the generous public, for the very liberal pa tronage with which his undertaking has been honored; at the fame time he takes the li berty of reprefen ting to l'uch of the subscribers as are in arrears, the indifpenfible necessity of punctuality, both in taking up ihe volumes as early as possible after publication, and of pay ing for them when taken. Many of the sub scribers having got only one, two, thiee, &:c. volumes, and several volumes remain unpaid. Thus the work hangs in all its different stages from the commencement; and though the im portance of a few dollars may be but a trifle to the individuals, yet the accumulation of these trifles unpmd lays the Publisher under very serious embarraflment,and deprives him of the ufeof many Thoufonds of Dollars which at this time would be of very eflential fervioe. For tbefe reasons the Publisher finds himfelf under the necessity of recurring to the original terms of publication, 3nd in future no vo lumes will be delivered but only to those who take and pay to the time of publication.
