ADVERTISEMENT TO THE SECOND EDITION.
The favourable reception which the first edition of this work met with, has encouraged the translator to employ his utmost care in rendering the second still less unworthy the acceptance of the public. He has corrected a passage erroneously translated in the second volume, at the 574th page of the quarto edition, and he has revised the whole with a degree of attention, which he hopes will secure him against the charge of any other inadvertency. He takes this opportunity of acknowledging the goodness of the learned and worthy Dr. Neve of Middleton Stoney, who favoured him with several notes, and with some hundreds of additional articles and corrections for the Index. Many of these are inserted in this edition, and an N. subjoined to each, to distinguish them from those of the translator.
