It is wholly unnccefTary to expatiate on the
advantage,to American readers, that this edi
tion poflefles, over every imported edition of
any system of Geography extant. The addi
tion of maps of the several state •, procured at
a very great expense, and from the best ma
terials that are attainable, speaks such full
convi&ion on this fubjeft, that it would be
difrefpett to the reader's understanding to
suppose it requisite to enter into a detail of
arguments to prove its superiority. In no
similar work have such maps beenever intro
duced. ,
Tbe i amd addition? which are
made in this work,are innumerable,and occur
in every page. The jnibKc are referred to
the preface for a £ight {ketch of a lew ol
them..
The publisher takes the present opportn
nity of returning his mod sincere thanks to 1
thole vClpo&abfte characters who have favored
hiua with documents for improving the maps
of fevera! of tbe flatts. He requests a conti
nuance of their kinduefs; and hopes that such
public ipirited citizens, as ate poifeiTed ol li
ra ilar documents, will -favor him with their
a&ftance ia perfecting his undertaking.
The extraordinary encouragement with
which be has been favored, lias excited
| in his bread the warmest sentiments of grati
tude—-feotiments which time will not elfa'cc.
He pledges himfelf to the citizens of tbe
United States, to ipnre neither pains nor ex
peofe to render the present edition of Guthrie's
Geography improved, defer ving of their pa

rich, powerful and happy, in propoition as the

slavery is impolitic as well as unjufl.
