THE DEATH OF GEORGE THE SECOND,
(Dehgned as a Continuation of Mr. Hume's History.)
IN FIVE VOLUMES.
A NEW EDITION.
With the Author's last CORRECTIONS and IMPROVEMENTS.
NO. 47, IN PATER-NOSTER-ROW,
[H. Baldwin and Son, Printers, New Bridge-stresi. ]
THE purchasers of D. Hume’s History of
England having been long desirous of a Continuation; the proprietor of Dr. Smollett's History (being in possession of a copy with the author's last corrections) has been induced to reprint that work, from the Revolution, where Hume's History ends, to the death of George II. in the year 1760.
To make this work more acceptable, the Sections, and other divisions, are given in a manner correspondent with those observed by Hume; so that any gentleman, poffefled of the latter, may take
up his History at the Revolution, where Hume breaks off, and find a regular connection in this complete History given by Smollett.
In the latter part only of this work has the present Editor found it necessary to make any alterations. The war before the last had its source in America, and thereby drew forth our settlements there into consequence.
This, with the loss of most of those settlements since to Great-Britain, had brought with it so many changes, that what
was found politicks and good sense then, is now
