vi notes. Some chapters even are added, which are not in any of the printed editions. : The engravings, are traced from the.fined illuminations in our own libraries and in that of France. By unforefeen accidents the plates are irregularly given, and they mud not be bound up until the whole be completed. When it is confidered that this work was printed in a very remote part of the Iiland, great allowances ihoulct be made, and I conclude with the words of HENRY STEPHENS, in his Apology for HERODOTUS :— " Et toutesfois je ne nie pas qu* il " n'y ait quelques endroits de cette hiftoire, en la *f traduction defquels je n'ay pu me fatisfaire ; et " fçay bien qu'encore moins fatisferay-je à ceux *e auxquels Dieu a fait la grace d'entendre l'auteur β β en fon langage naturel. Mais je me fie eil une i6 chofe, c'eft que ceux qui y feront le mieux verfez, " et par consequent appréhenderont mieux lçs € ζ dîfficultez contre lefquelles il a fallu combattre, fi feront les plus aifez l contenter." THOMAS JOHNES. Hafod, Bec. 24, 1803·
