THE title page has already declared the contents of this little book; and the twelve editions it has gone through since its first publication, are sufficient evidences of its utility as a Compendium of Geography.

The Editor has been, in every edition, careful to insert such improvements as comported with his plan, both in the Scientific and Historical part, in order that the present state of things might always be presented to the young

student. In this Edition is inserted, an Article, to explain the Equation of Time ;--on Alphabetical Writing :-of the Dionysian Period; to find the Dominical Letter ; and from the Dominical Letter to find on what day of the week, any given day of the month will fall ;-with several other additions. And the Maps have been all repaired.

The success the work has met with, has stimulated the exertions of the Editor to render it still more worthy of the public favour.
