THE EDINBURGH REVIEW; ;

OR,

CRITICAL JOURNAL.

(10 BE CONTINUED QUARTERLY.) Numbers I. to XIII. price 5s. each, or Six Volumes Octavo,

Price 10s. 6d. each, in Boards,

THIS Publication is conducted upon a Principle of Selection : It takes no no. tice of insignificant Works, but enters very fully into those that seem entitled to attention. Combining, in some measure, the representative functions of a Review, with the independence of original discussion; comprehending every foreign Publication which an extensive Continental correspondence can procure;' and distinguished by an Impartiality which no party zeal has yet pretended to call in question, it lays claim to the support of those who are not satisfied with the indolent and indiscriminating profusion of our other Journals.

The Editors were silent upon these pretensions, till they saw how the Public was likely to receive them. Their success has been much bevond their empectation, and, they believe, beyond any former example. In spite of the size of their Volume, the remoteness of their situation, and all the disadvantages of inexperience, they were enabled, even in their second Number, to equal the circutation of several of the established Journals of the metropolis; and they have been convinced, by the constant increase of the demand, that, to secure the patronage of the Public, it is only necessary to deserve it by a diligent and conscientious discharge of their duty. To every Number is annexed a complete List of all the new Publications in the preceding quarter. This Catalogue will contain by far the earliest and most comprehensive Account of Modern Literature that has yet been presented to the Public. Contents of No. 1.
