IT ha? been intimated t» the subscriber
from difFertnt qufrtcrs, that the above work, if
printed in OClavo w uld give more general fati»
faflioruhaii the Quarto form in which he has pro
posed it, and especially if the price of it rouU he
reduced: In order therefore to meet the fanflion of
the public, and to get so ufeful a work to this
country into general circulation, he now proprfa
to alter tic form, and instead of the Ttuo volumes,
Quarto , to print it in Three Volumes, OUavo.*
To reduce tbe price, he propefes to omit the prir.ts,
which being only ornamental, can be of no con
s. quence: but the Maps, without wbich the
work would be very incomplete indeed, will be
all retained. The price by this means will be re
duced upon the whole, Three Dollars and an hat/,
as will be obfurved in the difference between the
former and the following Proposals, which the
fubferiber relp cltuily offe-s the public, soliciting
their encouragement to the work by early sub
scription ; intending, with the addition of a few
more names to his Lift, to commence publiihing,
and to continue it every we:k till tbe whole is
finifhed. And when it is confidred, that tbe
work is to be illullrated and cmbcllifhed with a
largo two fleet MAP of the Weji-Indies, and with
Ten Otter Adapt of the iOands separately, it mud
surely be eftcemed as unulually cheap.
Conditions cn which tbe above History if
to be printed.
It {hall be illustrated wi-h a large
rat Map of the Well-Indies, and with ten other
Mapt, via. ®f Jamaica, Barbadocf, Grenada, St.

It stall be printed in large 03aw, on a neat
type and on the befl printing paper ; agreeable
to the specimen to be had of the printer.
It Shall be publilhed in nnmbers weekly; each
number to contain /ortj paget of letter press ; and
is calculated to be completed in thirty fix nam
beis ; The price for each number to be Out Quar
ter of a Doiiar, to be paid on delivery. Sheuld it
exceed the thirty-fix num'.eri the remainder will
be given gratis.
Tht Maps will be delivered with the numbers
to which they particularly attach, free ef any ad
ditional price. And a direction will be given
against what particular page each one it to be
The fuVfcribcr3 names, with the title pages

have them carefully refervej for them on paying
four dollars at the time cf fubferi! ing, and there
inainder when tl e work i* finifhed.
To prevent disappointment or complaint, it is
Dow prtmifed,that as there will be but a very few
