1. The object of this publication is to form a NEW ATLAS O! THE COUNTIES OF SCOTLAND, each County to compose : separate Map, or if of importance, from extent or population, two wil be allotted, each of which will be contained in a separate Map, except as in a few cases, where, from their greater proportion to the common scale, two Maps require to be assigned.

2. The Size will be that of Imperial Folio, that is, each County w be delineated on a space extending to 21 by 26 inches; a scale which is considered as sufficient to include or exhibit all places, of whatever in portance.

3. The engravings will be executed by the first Artists in the king dom, in the style of the Maps in the New GENERAL ATLAS.

4. The Drawings will be made from the best authenticated sources of information, and will be transmitted for corrections and additions to persons residing in the different Shires, of tried diligence and accuracy, and on whom the most implicit confidence can be placed; by these means the ulmost attainable accuracy, or the nearest approximation to the truth, will be secured; and the Publishers anticipate their being able to produce the completest COUNTY ATLAS hitherto published.

5. With the last Number will be given, An HistorICAL VIEW OF THE PROGRESSIVE GEOGRAPHY OF SCOTLAND, illustrating the Topographical Divisions of the Country.

6. A Consulting Index will also be given, which will enable the Reader to find out every place, of whatever importance. The nature and utility of this new method of indexing Maps will be easily under stood from a specimen in the hands of most Booksellers. BY THIS PLAN, ALL THE GEOGRAPHICAL NAMES IN THE COUNTRY WILL BE THROWN INTO AN ALPHABETICAL ARRANGEMENT, AND BOUND AT THE BEGINNING OF THE WORK, SO THAT EVERY PLACE WILL BE FOUND OUT WITH THE UTMOST FACILITY.

7. The Work will contain about 42 Maps, which, with the letterpress, will make a respectable volume. The price will be as moderate as possible; and it is intended to deliver it to Subscribers, done up in Numbers to be published at short intervals : the whole completed as speedily as possible. As soon as a sufficient number of Subscribers is obtained, the Engraving will be begun; and in the mean time the Publishers will proceed with the Drawings, and the preparatory measures for ascertaining their accuracy.

The Publishers are in hopes of securing the attestations of the Surveyors of the Counties, and of being able to procure at least four names to authenticate the accuracy of each Shire; in which case this Book will have 132 names to verify its correctness, and have claim to the distinction of a National Work superior to any published.

From which last-mentioned Epoch it is continued

downwards in the Work intitled, “ Hansard's Parliamentary Debates."

THIS Work will be completed in Thirty-six Volumes: the Thirtytird is just published; the remainder are in a great state of for. ardness, and will be published on or about the Meeting of the New arliament. The last Volume will bring the Work down to 1803:

which period, THE PARLIAMENTARY DEBATES, now ublishing under the superintendence of Mr. T. C. Hansard, comenced. The Public will then be in possession of the only uniform irliamentary History of the Country, that was ever attempted. The an of the Work will be seen in the following Extract from the reface to the First Volume:

" Whoever has had frequent occasion to recur to the Proceedings in Parliament of former times, must have experienced those difficu: ties which it is the object of the present Work to remove. Merely to find the several works wherein is contained an account of the Pardimentary Proceedings, is, at this day, no easy matter : some of them being very scarce, and others excessively voluminous. Hardly any of them, those of the last lwenty years excepted, are to be pur. chased regularly at the Booksellers. The far greater part of them are to be come at by accident only ; and, of course, sometimes pot to be obtained at all. But, supposing them all to be at hand, the price of them is no trifling object; and, in many cases, must present a difficulty not to be easily, or, at least, willingly surmounted. Ot These works, taken in their chronological order, the first is, " The Parliamentary or Constitutional History," in Twenty-four Volume: the second, “ Sir Simonds D'Ewes Journal of Queen Elizabeth's Parliaments ;" the third, “ Proceedings and Debates of the House of Commons in 1620 and 1621, collected by a Member of that House, and published from his Original Manuscript in the Library of Queen's College, Oxford," in Two Volumes ; the fourth, “ Chandler's and Timberland's Debates," in Twenty-two Volumes; the fifth, “Debates of the House of Commons, from 1667 10 1694, collected by the Honourable Anchitell Grey, Esq. who was thirty years member for the town of Derby," in Ten Volumes; the sixth, “ Almon's Debates, from 1743 to 1780," in Twenty-four Volumes; and the seventá, .“ Debrett's Debates, from 1780 to 1802,” in Sixty-three Volumes But still, with all these, the information wanted is very imperfect, without perpetually having recourse to the Journals of the ted Houses, which Journals occupy upwards of a hundred volumes in folio : so that the price of a complete set of the works, in this way cannot, upon an average of purchases, be reckoned at less than One Hundred and Fifty Pounds.

“ These difficulties surmounted, another, and a still more for midable obstruction to the acquiring of information, is found, nol inerely in the number and the bulk of the volumes, but also in the want of a good arrangement of the contents of most of them; and further, in the iminense load of useless matter, quite unauthentic and very little connected with the real Proceedings of Parliament to be found in many of them: in the first mentioned work, we fiad a narrative of battles, sieges, and of domestic occurrences. The res Proceedings of Parliament form but a comparatively small propor tion of it; whole pamphlets of the day, and very long ones, being in many places, inserted just as they were published and sold ; and when we come down even to the Debates by Almon and Debrea (taking in Woodfall and others occasionally), we find, that, in nume rous instances, three-fourths of the volume consists of Papers laid before Parliament, of mere momentary utility, repeated in subsequen
