12679 another copy, 4 vols. 4to, calf gilt, 9*. 9*. ib. 1824

The Firm Paet contains the names of upwards of 40,000 authors; aod of each, a short biographical notice is given. It serves, therefore, as a coo cise but comprehensive Biographical Dictionary, containing, not only all the names to be found in other biographies, but many thousands mure derived from other sources. The lists of their works, too, are much nvrr ample, their titles are given at length, and their various editions, translations, and subsequent improvements, are most minutely noticed- It contains also the titles of such detached papers as they may have co&trihclA* to Transactions, and other periodical publications. It thus forma a Catalogue of Books more minute, and vastly more comprehensive, than is to be met with elsewhere in this or any other language.

The Second Part is a minute index lo the First. In this part the «cbjecta are arranged ulphal>etically, and under each all the works, and principal parts of works, treating of that subject, are arranged in cliroiKdocicil order, so as to form a sort of annalx of what has been written on every snbject, from the first publication to the last Like a map, it brings the wbok under the eye at once. But this part, besides serving as a minute in W tu the Fir?*t, includes also a very complete list of all the anonymous publications which have appeared in this country. These are inserted according to their respective subjects and dates, with a reference to their publisher^ or the libraries in which they are to be found. There is, therefore, no *abject w ith regard to which anything has been written, that may not be ss easily found as a word in a dictionary, and the successive publications regarding it us readily come at as the different significations of a\ word.

"The use and advantages of this wonderful work" says Or. IKbdio, "are manifest and indispensable: and it should never jail to be a library companion, in all collections of extent or importance."

George Weguelin, Gent for his tintjnlar poetical talents was unanimously elected Poet Laureat to the Eccentric Society, and printed these inimitable" poeins to protect himself from the plagiarism of one of his BrotherEccentrics, who circulated some of these effusions 14 in a crude and incurrectal state," as his own compositions. Disdaining all mercenary considerations, ho distributed all the copies gratuitously; thus making good his own lines:

"And tho' 'tis said he's an author of little note,
He never receiv'd n farthing for what he wrote."

from the Court of Directors, under the date of the 4th of April 1805, to the Government of Bengal, which was rejected by the Board of Controul; folio, Privately Printed, 1/. 1805

This is Lord Wellesley's triumphant defence of the policy pursued by him during his administration of the Indian Government. He answers the draft paragraph by paragraph; and by the production of documents, at once exposes the malice of his accusers, the value of his appointments, and the ignorance of those who countenanced the charges brought against him. His defence of tlio appointment of Major-General Wellesley {the Duke Op Wellington) will be read with great interest, as it was this appointment which first called into action those energies of the Noble Duke, which in war and peace have been the preservation of this country.
