IT is with no small degree Of relief that the compiler of this work now turns from a self-imposed task, involving some years of the closest applica tion, to write a brief preface, not as a necessity, but in justice to the work and the numerous friends who have taken the warmest interest in its prog ress and final completion.
It is inevitable that in the vast amount of patient and persistent labor in a work of this kind, extending to 1386 pages, and containing distinct articles, there should be a few errors, ove'rsights, and inconsistencies, not withstanding all the vigilance to the contrary.
Condensation has been accomplished where it was possible to do so, and repetition avoided to a great extent by reference, where further information was contained in other articles of this book.
