NOTICE TO THE FOURTH PART.

So much has been done to the present Part, that to enumerate all the articles revised would almost amount to reprinting the whole of the titles.

The curious enquirer may refer to Galleries, Gibbon, Gilpin, Goethe, Goldsmith, Gould, Gray, Greene, Gregson, Haliburton, Hall, Halle, Hallam, Hamilton, Hearde, Herbert, Herodotus, Heywood, Hoare, Hobbes, Hogarth, Holinshed, Holland's Basi. liologia, Homer, Hone, Hood. Hook, Horæ, Horace, Hume, Hunt, Hunter, and Hutton.

Full half the work is now completed, and the most diffi. cult part of the task overcome; it is therefore hoped that the remainder will proceed with less delay than heretofore. But there is no intention of letting speed take the place of care, and Subscribers are requested, under any circumstances, to await the completion with reasonable patience.

The book does not pay at its present price, the Publisher therefore reserves to himself the right of advancing it to NonSubscribers immediately after publication of the concluding

Parr.
