Of which theje are the terms :
1. TT (hall be pubtilhed in 48 weekly numbers,
X each containing thiee Iheets,or twenty-four
pages, of letter press, in quarto, printed with new
types on fine papei.
11. In the course of the work will bedelivered
about thirty large maps, of the fame size as those
in the European editions, viz. mod of them sheet
maps on poll paper.
(p?" Bejtdes the maps in the Britijh editions, this
work will contain maps of as many of the United States
as can be readily procured, executed by the bell engrav

111. The price of each number will be a quar.
ter dollar, to be paid on delivery. No ad.
vance required.
IV. The work will be put to press as soon as

be at liberty to return them, and fliall have theii
money repaid.
VI. The fubferibers' names shall be prefixed as
patrons of the undertaking.
Perhaps there is no science more entertaining
and uleful than geography. It reveals the difco
venes of travellers—the remarkable curiofitiet of
all countries, in nature and art—the fttuation ot
provinces, c.lics, towns, villages, livers, & moun
tains—in fine, the history, manners, customs, laws,
forces, revenues, and government of diffeient na-
It is an old observation, that " there is not a
son or daughter nf Adam, but has tome concern
with g-ography;" and that a knowledge of this
fciencc IS indispensable towards the study of liif.
lory with advantage or fatisfaftion. indeed a
man unacquainted with it, cannot discourse on the
mo ft common topics of the day without
betraying his ignorancc.
So much for geography generally. With re-
Ipccl to the present plan, let it fuffice to remark
that Guthrie's Geography has been long acknow.'

however, the account of America u, „ has, from
obvious reasons, been very erroneous and defec
