THE Proprietors of the ANNUAL REGISTER
respectfully announce that a GENERAL Index to this work is prepared, and will be committed to the press immediately. It will comprise a period of sixty-two years, from 1758 to 1819 inclusive, during which time the Annual Register, begun by the late Mr. Dodsley, has upheld its reputation, and received the unvarying support of the public.
As the object of the publishers in preparing an Index to this
very voluminous work is not profit, but to render complete sets more useful to their possessors, it is intended that the price to Subscribers shall be as low as possible, and that the Impression shall very little exceed the number which may be subscribed for. Subscribers will therefore be pleased to give in their names as early as possible to their respective booksellers, as the lists will be closed on the first of August.
It is presumed that the Subscribers to DODSLEY'S ANNUAL REGISTER will be pleased with the plan, now first adopted, of giving a copious Index in each volume ; which, though it may add to the size, will not enhance the price of future volumes.
