As the design of every Publication of this kind is to give a complete account of the different countries described, so far at leatt as it is pofsible to do froin the discoveries of travellers and navigators; it is hoped, that in the perufal of the following theers, tbe Reader in this view will not be disappointed. Every publication of the kind that hath hitherto appeared has been consulted upon this occasion: And as no perforinance on aay fubje&t is either so absolutely perfect as to be entirely with out detect, or so totally defpicable as that nothing valuable can be extracted from it; by collecting what was of the greatest importance, and rejecting those parts which seemed more trifling, from orber publications of the fame nature, it hath been studied to make the present Grammar the most complete, as well for Instruction as Entertainment, of any hitherto extant; and in every respect to deserve the title of, The UNIVERSAL GEOGRAPHICAL GRAMMA R. i vould be impertinent to expatiate in the praise of a performance the true merit of which every Reader muft determine for Self. It is hoped, however, that the candid Reader will ex. ckie che observation of any inaccuracy in Mr Salmon, who, shough he in the Preface to his Grammar, declared that he was mare particular in his description of the British Ifles than any saber part of the world, yet in his account of Scotland he is accountably deficient : His deficiencies in this respect have een fupplied; and it hath also been studied to render the Historial pari complete to the present time, especially with regard
America : and as the war with the Colonies is, perhaps, an extor of greater importance to this country than any recorded
bflory, it is hoped, that an accurate account of it will renir thus Work truly valuable to the Public in general. Trat nothing might be wanting towards the rendering of this Granuar as complete as possible, a description is added of the Lecs a tbe South-Sea discovered by the late Voyagers, aifo *** Chronological Table of remarkable events, inventions, Adcoveries.
