The following numbers to be published in regular succession till the whole is completed, of Hume's history of England, with Smollett's and Lloyd's continuation, down to the year 1794. Plan and conditions of the work. I. That this work shall be printed on a beautiful new Burgeois type, purposely calculated to comprise a great quantity of matter in a small compass ; and by avoiding useless blanks, before and after the chapters, introduced in former editions of Hume, to enlarge them to an unnecessary and voluminous extent, the public will now be presented with an edition of Hume's history of England at less than half the expence which has ever been affixed to the cheapest edition. It will also be printed on paper of an excelent texture and quality. II. Each number, price only six-pence, chall be embellished with one elegant engraving, and some of them with two, executed by Arthur Hugh in estimation, and strikingly picturesque of the most material incidents that occur in the history. III. In the course of the history, will be given a compleat series of whole length portraits of all the British monarchs, from William the Conqueror, to his present majesty. IV. In order to accommodate the curious, a superior edition will be struck off on warehouse, William paper, of the finest texture, curiously hot-pressed. It will contain the first impressions of the plates, which will be worked off in the manner of proofs ; and in every other respect will maintain a superiority of nature and elegance. From the united expences attendant on these extra embellishments, will be affixed the additional charge of only six-pence each number by Charles Cooke ( )
