Printed from new type, and illustrated wlth Several Thousand Engravinge and Mapa. The work originally publiBhed under the title of The New Amebican Cïüi.opdia waa completed in 1863, Bince which time the wide circulation which it has atlaiued in all parta of the United States, and the signal developments which havo taken place in every brauch of science, literature, and art, have induced the editors and publishers to submit it to an exact and thorough revisión, and to issue a new edition entitled The ameiucan Cïci-opatDiA. W ithin the last ten yeurs the procreas of discovery in every depaitmeut ot' knowledge has made a new work of reference an imperative want. The movemeut of political affaira ha kept paee with the discoverieet of aoience, and their fruitful applieatiou to the industrial and useful arts and the convenience and retinemeut of social life. Great w.-irs and consequent revolutiona have occurred, involvin national changes of peculiar moment. The civil war of our own country, which waa at its height when the last volume of the oíd work appeared, has happily beeü endod, anG a new course of commercial aud industrial activily has been commenced. Lnrge acccssions to our geographicnl knowledge have been mude by the indofatigable exploren of África. The great political revolutions of the last deoade, with tlie natural result of the lapse of time, have brought into public view a multitude of new men, whose names are in every one's mouth, and of whose lives every one is curious to know the particular. Great battles have been fought and important sieges maintained, of which thedetails are as yet preserved onlv in the newspapers or iu the transient publications of the day, but which ought now to take their place in permanent and authentichistory. In preparing the present edition for the press, it has accordinily been the aim of the editors to briui down the information to the latost possible dates, anc to funiiflh an accurate account ot the mOBtrecent dis coveries in science, of ever} f resh produotion in liter ature, and of the newest inventions in the practica arts, as well as to give a succinct and ori(,nnal recott of the progresa ol political and historical eventa. The work has been begun af ter long and caref u prehminary labor, and with the most ampie resource ior carrying it on to a successful termination. None of the original stereotype platea have bee nsed, but every page has been printed on new tjpe forming in faot a new Cyclopeedia, with the sam plan and compass aa ita predecesaor, but with a fa greater pecuniary expenditure, and with such im proveniente in its composition as have been suggcste by longer experienee ana enlarged knowledeo. The illustrationa which are introducid for the firs time in the present edition have been added not fo the sake of pictorial effect, but to give greater lucid ty and force to the explanations in the text.
