"The preface to this edition states: 'As it was an object in preparing the first edition to compress as great amount of information as possible in the compass of a duodecimo volume, so in this -- the same object has been pursued. Since the publication of the first edition, the whole work has been attentively revised, corrected, and enlarged'" - Forbes. Bookseller Inventory # 45270
