OR GENERAL REPOSITORY OF
TO WHICH IS PREFIXED,
The HISTORY of KNOWLEDGE, LEARNING, and
HE prefent volume of the New Annual Regifter will be found to have called forth not less industry and diligence in its compilers, than those which have preceded it; at the fame time that we have been enabled to offer.it fomewhat earlier to the curiofity of our readers. We trust that that Public, to whose encouragement we are fo deeply indebted, will give us credit for the uniformity and conftancy of our exertions. If we cannot add to the scientific improvements, or the literary embellishments of the age, we will at least not subtract from our merits by irregularity and caprice.
As we proceed in our History of Knowledge and Taste, our subject becomes every hour more interesting. The Literary History of the Period of the Reformation is a grand and awful spectacle, and it has been our aim that it should not lofe its effect by not being brought together in a full and complete view.
