The Proprietor and Publisher of the History and Gazetteer of Derbyshire, has the pleasure of announcing to his numerous Subscribers and the Public, that the FIRST PART of the FIRST VOLUME of his work is ready for delivery. This PART contains,

The Geography,

Natural History, comprising Botany,

Trade and Commerce,
Manufactures, and
General Political History [to the close of the reign of Edward III.]

and is illustrated by a geological plate, and a variety of other embellishments.

Ste Glover has been induced, contrary to his original intention, to publish the work in parts, on account of his having obtained an accumulation of interesting materials, far exceeding his most sanguine expectations. This mass of important matter is the result, partly of his own researches, and partly of kind contributions of intelligent persons in every portion of the County. For this reason, the History will necessarily be extended to a size MUCH GREATER than was originally projected ; and will comprise THREE OTHER PARTS of considerable bulk.

[ocr errors]

The SECOND PART, which will complete the FIRST VOLUME, will contain

The remainder of the General Political History,

Statistics, Government, &c. of the County,
Ancient Genealogical History,
Biography of eminent persons, either natives of Derbyshire, or long resident in the County.

The THIRD PART (which will form the FIRST PART of the SECOND VOLUME) will comprise about HALF OF THE PAROCHIAL HISTORY OF THE COUNTY ; embracing the General History of the Towns, Villages, &c. obtained from sources entirely, or for the most part, new.

[blocks in formation]

The FOURTH PART, completing the GAZETTEER AND terminate the work.

The SECOND VOLUME, the FIRST PART of which is nearly ready for publication, will contain above fifty copper and steel engravings of noblemen's and gentlemen's seats, churches, monuments, &c. and about one hundred and twenty shields of armorial bearings of the resident families, with tables of genealogy.
