ADVERTISEMENT.

OWING to the demise of the late King, the hereditary revenues revert to the Crown; and, on the assembling of a new Parliament, an entire new arrangement will probably be made in respect of the Civil List Expenditure: this arrangement, and other changes under the new reign, may render it necessary to publish a Supplementary Part, and, if so, public notice will be given previous to publication.

February 14, 1820.

* It is suggested to purchasers, for the sake of uniformity, and

as being most appropriate to its name and contents, that the
BLACK BOOK be bound in black.
