6. The names of the fubferibers will be pub

It is wholly unneceflary to expatiate on the
advantage,to American readers, that this edi
tion poffefles, over every imported edition of
any system of Geography extant. The addit
tion of maps of the several state.-, procured a
a very great eKpenfe, and from the best ma
terials that are attaiuable, fpcaks such full
conviction on this fubjett, that it would be
difrefpeft to the reader's understanding to
suppose it requilire to enter into a detail of
arguments to prove its superiority. In no
si mi far work have Tuch maps beenever intro
duced. »
The emendations and additions which are
made in this w*irk,are innunierab e y and occuj
iu every page. The public are referred to
the preface for a flight Iketch of a few oi
them.
The publisher takes the present opportu
nity of most fin cere thanks to
those refpeftable tharafters who have favored
him with documents for improving the maps
of several of the dates. He requests a conti
nuance of their kindness; and hopes that such
I public spirited citizens, as are poflefTed of il
imlar documents, will favor him with their
alliftance in perfecting his undertaking.
The extraordinary encouragement with
winch he has been favored, has, excited
in his breast (he warmest sentiments of grati
tude-— sentiments which time will not efface.
He pledges himself to the citizens of the
United Srates, to spare neither pains nor ex
penfe to r ender the present edition ofGutlvric's
Geography improved, deftrviiig of their pa
tronage. waft*
