"This book is perhaps the most difficult and laborious that ever was undertaken by author or printer. It was seven years in hand, and is the most extensive and copious work of the kind in any language, and the first in English of so large a scope. It may be considered as an abridgment of universal history, to be used as an index to all historical writings, and a regulator of those whose authors have been either ignorant or negligent of chronology and genealogy, without which any history is deficient, imperfect, and perplexing."-MOULE'S Bibl.

"The prolegomena of Villoison are ample and extremely erudite, accompanied with a multitude of notes and observations, the extensive and profound erudition of which (extremely rare even in laborious men who have grown old in study!) appears like a prodigy in a young man at the age of twenty-two, as was Villoison, when he edited this work."-DIBDIN.
