Books upon almost every other subject have
been circulated among the people, except those
relating to the very interesting and important
one of Natural History. The books which have
heretofore been published on this subject, hove
been adapted, to mere children, or to those
who made it a thorough study. Bence, very
few of the millions of readers in this country
have, within their reach, anything satisfactory
upon this subject. This indicates a groat and
an obvious want, as no subject is store intense
ly interesting, and none more improving, thtin
that of the living beings that people the globe.

It is believed that the above work will be ve
ry acceptable to the Anicriean public. It is the
result of years of toil and labor, assisted in his
researches by several scholars of known ability,
and has been got up at a great expense by the
proprietors. No pains have been spared in the
execution of the Illustrations and Maps, which
are prepared expressly for this work. Indeed.
all the other historical writing of Mr. Goodrich,
sink into insignificance, when compared to this,
the result of his riper and maturer years. It is
admitted that one hundred dollars could not
purchase the same matter in any other shape ,
and the publishers confidently expect, in consi
deration of the great literary value of the' work,
the large sum expended in preparing it for the
press, and the exceedingly moderate price at
which it is offered, that it will be lavorably re
ceived by every lover of good hooks. Mussy 01
our first scholars:, divines and gentlemen, who
have examined the work, have given it their un
