A SYSTEM OF UNIVERSAL GEOGRAPHY.
By M. MALTE BRUN, Editor of the "Annales des Voyages," &c. Parts 1 to 10. To be completed in Fourteen quarterly Parts, forming Seven Svo. Volumes, price 78. 6d. each Part.
In the First Volume a Luminous Philosophical Theory of Geography is developed; the Second and half the Third contain Asia; the last part of the Third, the regions situated in the great ocean between Africa, Asia, and America; the Fourth, Africa and its Adjacent islands; and the Fifth, North and South America, and the West Indies.
The Theory of Geography, and the description of Asia, Africa, and the Continent of Europe, have been corrected and improved by the Author expressly for this translation; while the description of the British Empire, and of North and South America, under the revision of Gentlemen belonging to these Countries, will assume, in a great measure, the character of an original work.
With these advantages superadded to the well-known talent of M. Malte Brun, and the acknowledged merits of the French Work, the publishers do not hesitate to avow their expectation that the present translation will prove the most complete body of Geographical science ever given to the public.
"M. Malte Brun is probably known to most of our readers as the author of a Systematic Work on Geography; he is besides the editor of Nouvelles Annales des Voyages: the first is as much superior to the compilations of our Guthries and Pinkertons, as the other is to the garbled productions of our Trusters and Mavors.". Quarterly Review, No.52.
"Its design is to bring together the whole of Ancient and Modern Geography.. But immense and difficult as the undertaking is, the Author has done and is doing it ample justice. It is at once a System of Geography for every day use, and at the same time an example of enlarged philosophical views. It is alike calculated to gratify those who read merely from curiosity, and those who seek its pages for the more definite purposes of education and scientific intelligence.... It is admirable in its original form, it is well translated, it is printed in a fair style; and, in fine, it is a work that neither library nor family, nor school should be without."
