"A simple history of this publication will best unfold its design, and will form the best apology for its numerous imperfections. On the first day of January, in the year 1801, the author being called, in the course of his pastoral duty, to deliver a sermon, instead of choosing the topics of address most usual at the commencement of a new year, it occurred to him as more proper, in entering on a new Century, to attempt a review of the preceding age, and to deduce from the prominent features of that period such moral and religious reflections as might be suited to the occasion. A discourse, formed on this plan, was accordingly delivered. Some who heard it were pleased to express a wish that it might be published. After determining to comply with this wish, it was at first intended to publish the original discourse, with some amplification; to add a large body of notes for the illustration of its several parts; and to comprise the whole in a single volume. Proposals were issued for the publication in this form, and a number of subscribers gave their names for its encouragement. Though the greater part of this work consists of compilation; yet the writer claims to be something more than a mere compiler. He has offered, where he thought proper, opinions, reflections, and reasonings of his own; and though many of these are adopted, perhaps too hastily, from others, there are some of which all the praise and all the blame belong to himself. As the author aimed at nothing more than a brief retrospect of the period to which this work is devoted, it was impossible for him to do more, consistently with his plan, than to mention the principal discoveries, inventions, improvements and writers, under each head; and even these could only be noticed with great brevity, and in very general terms. Although the very nature of the work required that all the subjects brought into view should be treated superficially, and that nothing more than rapid outlines should be attempted; yet the intelligent reader will, doubtless, discern, that the mode of treating some of the subjects manifests a very small and partial acquaintance with them. The reader is particularly requested not to overlook the Additional Notes. They will be found to supply some of the deficiencies, and to correct some of the errors with which the body of the work abounds"--Preface.
