Miscellany ,

Title alone is fufficient to explain it; and though several Collections have been formerly attempted upon Plans, as to the Method, very little, but, as to the Capacity and Execution, very different from ours; we, being possessed of the greatest Variety for such a Work, hope for a more general Reception than those confined Schemes had the Fortune to meet with; and therefore, think it not wholly unnecessary to explain our Intentions, to display the Treasure of Materials out of which this Miscellany is to be compiled, and to exhibit à general Idea of the Pieces which we intend to insert in it.

There is, perhaps, no Nation in which it is so necessary, as in our own, to assemble, from time VOL. II.
