Vew Revised Edition.
Entirely rewritten by the ablest writers on
every suojecc. xrintea rrom new type, and
illustrated with Several Thousand JEngra- '
rings and Maps.
THE work originally published under the tl-
DIA was completed in 1864, since which time
the wide circulation which it has attained in all
parts of the United States, and the signal de
velopments which have taken place in every
branch of science, literature, and art, have in-
duoed the editors and publishers to submit it to
an exact and thorough revision, and to issue a
new edition entitle THE AMERICAN CY-
Withlx! the last ten years tbe proarees or die.
oovery in evry department of Knowledge hae

The movement of political affairs haa kept
pace with the discoveries or science, and their
fruitful application to tbe industrial and use
ful arte arid the convenience and refinement of
social life. Great wars and consequent revolu
tions have occurred, in wiving national changes
of peculiar moment Tbe civil war of our own
oouAtt-y, wuicn was at its neigut wnen tne last
volume of the old work appeared, has happily
been ended, and a new course or commercial
and industrial activity haa been commenced.
Large accessions to our geograpmcai nowi-
ledge have been made by the Indefatigable ex
plorers of Africa.
lae great pouucai re-ruiuiyiuue ui mo lmi uc
cade, with the natural result of the lapse of
time, have brought into public view a multi
tude of new men, whose names are in every
one's mouth, and of whose lives every one is
curious to know the particuiara. ureal Dattiee
have been fought and important sieges main
tained, of which the details are as yet preserved
onlymthe nowspapersor in tne transient puD-
lications of the day, but which ought now to
take their place in permanent and authentic
n preparxing ino present eaiugn ior .am
press, it has accordingly been the aim of the
editors to bring down the Information to the
latest possible dates, and to furnish an accu
rate account of the most recent discoveries in
science, of every fresh ptoductionin literature.
and of tho newest inventions in the practical
arts, aa well as to give a succlnt and origina-
re cord or tne progress oi political ana nistori

Xhe work has been Degun arter long ana
careful preliminary labor, and with the most
ample resources for carrying it on to a success
ful termination.
None of the original stereotype plateJ have
been used, but every page has been printed on
new type, forming in fact a new Cyclopedia,
with the same plan and compass as its prede
cessor, but with a far greater pecuniary ex pen-,
diture, and with such improvement in its com
position aa have been suggested by longer ex
perience and enlarged lc nowledge.
Xhe illustrations which are introduced for the
first time in the present edition have been ad
ded not for the sake of pictorial effect, but to
give greater lucidity and force to the explana
tions in the text. They embrace all branches
if science and of natural history, and depict the
n oet famous and remarkable features of scene
y, architecture, and art, as well aa the various
jroceeaes ot mechanics and manufactures. Al
Jioogb Intended for instruction rather than
imbeLiahment. no pains have been spared to

heir execution is enormous, and it is believed
will find a welcome reception as an ad
jlrable feature of the Cyclopaedia, and worthy
f lta high character.
