From NOTES AND QUERIES, Saturday, January 10, 1863. He must be a most exacting critic who, with respect to a book like this now before us, containing as it does some thousands of names and dates, and professing to furnish information upon all questions which can arise touching the civil, political, military, or religious history, the laws, government, arts and sciences of the world generally-but of the British Empire more particularly-should expect that it would
Spring, like Minerva from the head of Jove,
All perfect and complete. But every reader of the “ Dictionary of Dates" has a right to expect that, as the patronage of the public calls for new editions, such new editions should be not only professedly but really enlarged and improved. This right on the part of the public has, we are bound to say, been fully recognised and acted upon by Mr. Vincent. Having noted on the fly-leaf of our own copy of the ninth edition articles which we had sought for in vain, but which we considered ought to have been included in a Dictionary of Dates," we have used those articles as tests of Mr. Vincent's improvements and enlargements, and we are bound to say that, with two or three trifling exceptions, those omissions are supplied in this new and greatly improved edition. Not only is the Dictionary itself enlarged, but, which is equally important and valuable, the Index is much more full; and we think Mr. Vincent has in the eleventh edition gone far to realise the object he has proposed to himself-namely, to “make his book not a mere' Dictionary of Dates,' but a ' Dated Encyclopædia'-a digested summary of the History of the World, brought down to the very eve of its publication.”
ELEVENTH EDITION (Corrected to December 1862). Dates and Facts relating to the History of Mankind from the most authentic and recent records, especially interesting to the Historian, Members of the Learned Professions, Literary Institutes, Merchants, and General Readers.
Just published, in One handsome Library Volume, beautifully printed in legible type, 18s. cloth,
A DICTIONARY OF DATES.
RELATING TO ALL AGES AND NATIONS, FOR UNIVERSAL REFERENCE. Comprehending Remarkable Occurrences, Ancient and Modern, the Foundation, Laws and Government of Countries—their Progress in Civilisation, Industry, Literature, Arts and Science—their Achievements in Arms-and their Civil, Military, and Religious Institutions, and particularly of
THE BRITISH EMPIRE.
By JOSEPH HAYDN.
By BENJAMIN VINCENT,
« On a former occasion we expressed our sense of the value of this work, which is the most universal book of reference in a moderate compass that we know of in the English language. Its original 15,000 articles, all studded with facts, as the currants in a Christmas pudding, have gone on increasing in number and dimensions till they now make a volume of 762 pages. The original compiler, Joseph Haydn, is dead. After fagging away at his interminable task, collecting and comparing dates from the earliest eras of chronology to the current hour, he departed and left this mass of materials to the executors of Mr. Moxon, or practically in perpetual trust for the English public. There is, in fact, as little chance of his book going out of print as of the extinction of the“ Post Office Directory," or of“ Bradshaw's Railway Guide.” Like both of these literary chefs-d-quvre, it has grown into an institution ; and Mr. Vincent, the Assistant-Secretary and Librarian of the Royal Institution, has the function of posting it up to the latest possible moment. Mr. Vincent has also submitted the work to a thorough revision, has largely increased its number of articles, and extended its Index, while there is not a day which does not yield him fresh materials for incorporation under many of the titles which existed already. If we refer to some of the latter, we see at a glance the exigencies and the value of a book so edited and re-edited from time to time. Let the reader turn to the titles “ Naples,” “ New York,” “New Zealand,” &c., or observe the number of new entries under “ Trials” or “Shipwrecks," and he will gain a notion of the continual vigilance which such a work requires. As far as we can judge, every pains has been taken by Mr. Vincent to cram it full of the latest facts, and to render this, its Tenth, Edition, indispensable.'
