TERMS.

I. This Atlas shall contain fifty-one maps, as in the foregoing list, all of which shall be well executed from the best and most recent authorities. The geographical part will be prepared by an eminent geographer, and the historical part by the gentleman who edited the former editions of Lavoisne.

II. The work will be executed in the same style as the Atlas of Lavoisne already published by M. Carey & Son.

III. The price to subscribers will be twenty dollars. To non-subscribers it will be raised.

IV. It is expected that the work will be completed and ready for delivery in the early part of the ensuing year, and will be forwarded to subscribers as soon as possible afterwards.

V. Persons obtaining subscribers for nine copies, and paying for them, shall be entitled to a copy gratis.

Induced by the very liberal patronage they have received for the two editioits of Lavoisuc's Historical Atlas, the publishers now submit to the public their proposals for a third edition, accompanied by an Atlas in which will be given maps of all the divisions of the Continent, accompanied by historical, chronological, and geographical information on the plan of Lavoisne. They pledge themselves that the maps shall be constructed from It:-- most recent authorities, and well engraved; and they have engaged two gentlemen fully competent to the undertaking, who are now employed in the preparation of the historical and geographical parts of the work. Tv o of the maps Nos. 2 and 14, are now considerably advanced, and will shortly be ready for exhibition as specimens of the execution.

When this work is completed, the two volumes will form the most complete sj stem of Geography and History that has ever been published, and when it is considered that the whole, (123 maps,) will be furnished to subscribers for Forty-five dollars, (exactly the price of the London edition, containing 67 maps,) they believe it will be admitted that it is one of the cheapest books that has ever appeared in this country.

RECOMMENDATIONS OF LAVOISNE'S ATLAS.

Washington, 18<A July, 1820.

Dear Sir—In reply to your letter of this date, requesting mv opinion of the general merits of "Le Sage's Historical Atlas, ■ml of the propriety of publishing in this country a correct translation of it, I take great pleasure in assuring you, that I consider it tin most successful effort of the age, to facilitate the acquisition of historical, genealogical, chronological, and geographical information.

In this admirable work, the great events which, from the earliest ages, have changed tiie civil and political condition of man, and ultimately led to the existing state of hu.nan society, ate not only described in strong aml appropriate language, but so clearly and distinctly delineated upon maps, that the mind of the student, without an effort, comprehends, at a glance, their cause, the means employed in their accomplishment, and their remote effects. liy this happy device, the senses are,—in a degree unknown to any other work of the same Kencral nature,—employed in aid of the understanding and memory, mid greatly advance the progress of the student..

I have, for several years, ardently wished that some enterprising individual would furmsh the American youth with the means of profiting by this able work; and am happy that it has at last been undertaken by one whose talents and perseverance cannot fail to command the most complete success.

I remain, with sentiments of the highest respect, your most obedient servant,

WM. H. CRAWFORD.

The Rev. Mr. Weems.

Baltimore, JVto. 22(7, 1820.

Dear Sir—The reputation of Le Saoe's Atlas is too well established to ecquire any certificate of merit from me; yet, since you desire it, I have no difficulty in stating my concurrence in the universal opinion of all who have examined the work, that it is one of great value, most happily conceived and ably executed. It is a luminous synopsis of all the great events of history, which are not only written to the understanding, but painted to the eye. It is an epitome of the history of the human family, from the creation of the world; which, by the ingenuity of Mr. he Sage, has been brought under a single coup rfVic,. the chronology most happily arranged, and the march of empire and revolution reduced to a geographical picture. The work if one of such incaleulable advantage to the student of history, and of such constant practical utility as a work oi'rrfertvce, that I am much gratified with Mr. Carey's proposal to give an improved translation of it to the public, and very sincerely wish him the success which so well selected a publication deserves.

With great respect, 1 am, sir, your obedient servant,

WM. WIRT.

The Rev. Mr. Weems.
