ADV ER TIS E M E N T.:
TT AVING, in the former volumes, giIT ven the public a correct edition of all Dr. Swift's genuine works, from the only authentic edition of them published at Dublin, it was judged proper to complete the collection by this additional volume; which consists of miscellaneous
pieces composed by Dr. Arbuthnot, Mr. • Pope, and Mr. Gay. As they are of the
fame spirit and strain with Dr. Swift's. works, and have been published along with them in several former editions, we believed it would be agreeable to most readers to find them in this collection. We can. assure the public, that, excepting a few low and spurious pieces which have been rejected by perfons of taste, as unworthy of Dr. Swift, or any of his friends, our edition completed by this appendix, comprehends all that is contained in any of the London editions of Dr. Swift's works ; with this advantage, that the genuine compositions of that celebrated author, are distinguished and kept apart from those of his friends contained in this volume..
