VARIOUS COUNTRIES, PLACES, AND PRINCIPAL NATURAL OBJECTS
By J. R. McCULLOCH, Esq.
DURING the compilation of "The Commercial Dictionary" the author of this work having had occasion to refer to a good many Geographical Dictionaries, it occurred to him that he might, perhaps, be able to produce one that should be more generally useful than any of those which he consulted. Few of these publications have hitherto been of a kind to inspire confidence. The authors have seldom referred to the sources whence their statements were derived; so that the reader has nothing better to trust to than the authority of, perhaps, an anonymous compiler; at the same time that he is deprived of the means of readily verifying his facts, or of referring to the original authorities for further information. These works have generally also been compiled either on too contracted or too extensive a plan; so that while, in the one case, the reader was frequently not supplied with important information, in the other, the book became too bulky, costly, and inconvenient. These defects the author has endeavoured to avoid; he has in almost every instance derived his information from original and in many instances from official sources, and in all cases the authorities are quoted. The work has been printed in so condensed and compact a style that few works have ever appeared comprising so large a quantity of matter in so small a compass. In short, no pains have been spared to render it worthy the readers' confidence.
Being intended for the use of Englishmen, the author has dwelt at greatest length on those articles, and parts of articles, he thought most likely to interest them. Hence he has appropriated a larger space to articles connected with our Eastern possessions, and our colonies in different parts of the world, than they may appear, on other grounds, properly entitled to. On the same principle, he has enlarged most on those countries and places with which our countrymen have the greatest intercourse, or which have acquired celebrity by the historical associations connected with them.
Without neglecting the physical geography of the different countries and places, the author has directed his principal attention to their industry, institutions, and the condition of their inhabitants. Neither has he confined himself within what might, perhaps, be called the limits of a strictly Geographical and Statistical work. He has endeavoured to appreciate the influence of institutions and habits on national welfare, and wherever the occasion seemed to justify it, he has not scrupled to commend and censure, as well as to describe.
PART II. contains elaborate articles on ARABIA-ASIA-ATHENS-AUSTRALIA—
and the AUSTRIAN EMPIRE.
A Map of Asia, on a large scale, embracing all the latest discoveries, and engraved in the first style of the art, is in preparation for this work. Maps, on a large scale, will also be given in future Numbers of the British Territories in North America; of the Navigable Rivers, Canals, Railways, Coal-Fields, &c. of Great Britain and Ireland; of Central Europe and the Mediterranean; of the West Indies and Central America, &c.
