HISTORICAL DIVISION. A good work on General History has long been a great desideratum in our literature. The summaries of Tytler and Russell are too brief, and the Uni- 09: 20

versal History, independently of the heavy manner in which it is written, is
0 g too long. It is presumed that the Historical Department of the ENCYCLO- 2222

PÆDIA METROPOLITANA will be found to meet this want in an efficient man-
ner. The articles are written by men of the highest attainments in different
classes of historical knowledge. They exhibit the history of the world, at op
first in a series of Biographical sketches, and then in a continuous History of

each remarkable country, combined with an Ecclesiastical History remark-
G a bly full and rich in the most interesting epochs of the Christian Church.

Dissertations of great importance in a philosophical point of view, such as
those on Ancient Philosophy and Literature, on the Crusades, the Feudal
System, and the Scholastic System, are introduced, at the most convenient
periods, for the illustration of the respective subjects.

In preparing this department of the Encyclopædia for publication in the

CABINET EDITION, the greatest care will be taken to render every section of
9 998 it as complete as the present state of historical knowledge will permit. Every

Treatise will be compared with the recent works of eminent Historians, Geo- &
graphers, and Archæologists; additions will be made where necessary, and
new Histories, of particular Courtries or on special subjects, will be intro- goed
duced when required to complete the plan that is sketched in this Prospectus.

! It is intended also to enrich the Cabinet Edition with AN EXTENSIVE SERIES 81292293 of ILLUSTRATIONS, consisting of Portraits and Statues of Eminent Persons,

Pictures of celebrated Events, Views of remarkable Places and Buildings, 60 CC Coins, Medals, and other subjects of archæological interest; taken from the

2 most authentic sources, and Drawn and Engraved on Wood by eminent Artists.
O Subscribers, who wish to do so, can receive the HISTORICAL DEPARTMENT

of the Encyclopædia without the other Departments.
