ADVERTISEMENT

TO THE

EIGHTEENTH EDITION.

THE Editor of the present edition of Brookes' General Gazetteer has used his best endeavours to render this established work more worthy of the reputation it has acquired. Since the appearance of the preceding edition, many territorial changes have taken place, in different countries, many voyages and travels have been undertaken, and many works have been published, containing much geographical and topographical information: to these, and other sources, constant reference has been made, and a large portion of new matter obtained. The articles now first inserted, and the additions made to others, are very numerous and considerable; yet, by retrenching some redundancies, enlarging the page, and adopting a narrower type, the present volume little exceeds the former in thickness. The maps, with the exception of one, have been dispensed with, as atlases on a superior scale are now become so general, that their insertion is not of much utility.

January, 1827.
