P R E FACE

TO THE

EIGHTH EDITION.

The following Work contains the substance of a Course of Lectures, which the Author occasionally read to his Pupils. The satisfaction they expressed in hearing them, encouraged him to hope, that they would not prove unacceptable to those Readers for whose use they were published. He has not been disappointed in his expectation; and the favourable reception which his work has met with from the Public at large, and particularly from several Perfons of acknowledged abilities and experience in the business of Education, whose names he would be proud, but is not permitted to mention, has encouraged him to make improvements in every succeeding Edition, and especially in the present.

The List of Books has been carefully attended to; and he has endeavoured to make it as comprehenfive as his Plan would allow, from a defire to sketch such a prospect of the best Publications as may be pleasing to every inquirer into the various branches of useful and entertaining Literature.
