However Fancy may paint to our imaginations thre importance of this “ Divine Art,” in wbat glowing colours must the picture afterwards appear, when we have explored the records of Time, and traced (in the Historic page) the various discoveries which have been made for the benefit of mankind: when these are contrasted with that which gave them birth, must they not sink (however great each may individually appear) into comparative insignificance !

We beg the candid and enquiring Reader to draw a parallel between the present state of society and that of the dark ages, in which mankind had so long remained under the arbitrary dominion of Idolatry and Priestcraft, when the devoted bigots, bound to her iron car with adamantine chains, were compelled to follow in her train: but no sooner did this' briglit luminary (the Press) burst upon Europe, than its brilliant rays, like the meridian san, not only enlightened and invigorated mankind, but also dispelled the murky clouds wbich had for ages cemented the bonds of Ignorance and Superstilion. How trebly blest and highly-favoured ought Britons to consider themselves, that, notwithstanding all the restrictions ander which the Press in this country at present labours, we have yet to boast,

We are now arrived at the period when we are called upon to put the seat to our labours in the present instance : that we have great reason to rejoice at this event, we feel persuaded the majority of our Readers would readily admit, if they were in possession of only a small portion of the difficulties with which we have had to contend; and although they were chiefly of a pecuniary nature, yet through them many others were produced ; and no sooner had we overcome one barrier, than others equally formidable presented themselves to our view, every one of which was almost sufficient to bave deterred us from proceeding further; yet, notwithstanding these trying circumstances, we are proud to state, that although we have had to ascend mountain after mountain for the last six years, yet our ardour has never once abated, and our minds, soaring far above all difficulties, were uniformly steady to the point, being anxiously and resolutely determined on its completion.

It was not without the greatest reluctance on our part, even though solicited by a great number of the best informed members of the Profession, that we were induced to commence the present undertaking, which was then intended (as our first Prospectas, dated July 20, 1818, shews), to bave merely given an abridgement of the work, coutaining the most essential points connected with the Art; but, after baving composed the first sheet, want of means to proceed necessitated us to let it stand over for tbe

space of six months, during which period, having leisure to re-consider the subject,a patron kindly stepped forward and voluntarily proffered his assistance, upon which we determined to use our ut
