A

Litterary Journal should, in some

measure, resemble a Map * : for as this presents us, at one View, and in a very narrow Compass, with the Extent of one or more Countries, with their Districts and Divisions, their Rivers, their Cities, and other things deserving. our Observation ; so the other is design'd to set before us, in a few Sheets, whatever is comprizd in various and voluminous Treatises, by giving us their History, their Plan, their Analysis, and some of those Passages, which distinguiss themselves from the rest.

Pursuant to this Idea, our Intention was, when we undertook this Work, ift, To take notice of the most valuable Books, whether in Latin, Italian, French or English, and such only as were latest publish'd in any parts of Europe, which the Correspondence, we had establish'd abroad, enabled us to do. And, 2dly, To take under our Consideration Books of all Sciences, viz. Divinity, Philosophy, Mathematicks, Physick, particularly the Belles Lettres, and History; not forgetting to make proper Remarks

upon Medals, In

Scriptions, fcriptions, and what other Remains of
Antiquity shou'd at any time come in our
way. And now, that we have publish'd
as many Numbers as will compose a
Volume, our Readers may judge whether
we have executed our Plan according
to our Promise. They may depend on us
for the future, that the fame Correspon-
dence to supply new and curious Books,
the same Pains and Application in per-
using them, the fame Care and Exact-
ness in abridging them, and the same
Judgment and Impartiality in making
our Remarks upon them, shall moft cer,
tainly be continued.

* Vide Preface to our first Number.
