The design of this volume is to lay before the reader a series of lives of the most illustrious men of North America, from its first settlement to the present time-embracing a long list of distinguished individuals, whose fame will go down to posterity as the noblest monument to their country's glory.

This work, the most complete of its kind that has ever appeared, will be found, on examination, to contain what has been long considered a desideratum in our literature-the lives of the signers of the declaration of independence, and the constitution of the United States.

It may be added, that the materials which form this work have been drawn from the highest and best authorities: and li the numerous engravings which adorn it, may be relied on as faithful and correct likenesses.
