A Complete System of Geography. By M. Malte-Brun, Editor of the Annales Des Voyages, &c. Wells & Lilly. Boston.

This work is to be completed in seven large octavo volumes, five of which have already been published in Paris. "The first contains the History of Geography, and of the Progress of Discovery from the earliest ages to the present day; the second contains the Theory of Mathematical, Physical, and Political Geography; and the three last contain the description of Asia, Africa, and America ; the description of Europe will be comprised in the two next volumes.' The American edition will consist of the English translation, which comes out in London, and will appear in parts, or half volumes. This work has already been translated into German with Notes by the German editors. Malte-Brun's reputation as a geographer stands very high, and his great work when completed will no doubt be the best, which has been published on the subject of general geography.

The American publishers observe, that the parts relating to the United States will be revised, and such corrections and additions made as may appear necessary.' We would suggest, that all such additions and corrections should be put in notes, and the author's text left untouched. American editions of some English works have been mangled by meddling too freely with the text, under pretence of correcting it, thus doing injustice to the authors, and deceiving the reader. It is a mischievous practice, which nothing can justify. All needed amendments or additions may be inserted with equal facility in the margin or an appendix.
