That a work of this nature, conducted on principles of good faith-dependent on no party, and fearing none -is a desideratum, must be well known to all who are
in this country.
Professions are generally looked upon with distrust, till their sincerity has been proved by the result:-the Proprietors will therefore content themselves with stating that they have made arrangements which appear to them calculated to secure the most efficient support; while the principles on which the JOURNAL will be conducted, are such as will render it a fit vehicle through which the members of a liberal profession may communicate and receive information.

LITERATURE, FINE ARTS, &c. &c.
A NEW GENERAL ATLAS.
ON THE FIRST OF NOVEMBER, 1827, WILL BE PUBLISHED, BY LONGMAN, REES, ORME, BROWN, & GREEN, LONDON,
AND TO BE HAD OF ALL BOOKSELLERS AND DEALERS IN MAPS,
With every disposition to acknowledge the respective merits of the various geographical compilations that have appeared of late years, the Proprietors of the present work do not hesitate to declare that they have undertaken it from a full conviction of its necessity. The discoveries of recent voyagers and travellers in every known region of the globe, the nautical surveys and exploratory enterprises instituted by Various governments and states, and the important changes made in the demarcation of boundaries between contiguous territories belonging to dfferent Powers, continue to supply a multitude of data for increasing ou knowledge of the earth and its divisions, natural and political
[EDIMURGH REVIEW-No. 92.]
and are daily furnishing additions and amendments for the published records of that knowledge. With these materials the Geographer is enabled to supply the deficiencies and correct the errors of his predecessors; and thus a new Atlas, like a new Cyclopædia, may, by due care and diligence, be made to possess all the advantages of its prototypes without their faults, and must for a time claim precedence as the latest compendium of a science which like all others is incessantly progressive.
From these considerations, and from the very natural desire of applying to a useful purpose materials which had been long accumulating, the present undertaking originated. In preparing the drawings the best and most recent authorities have been consulted ; reference has been had to archives and to private collections not generally accessible, and the emendatory suggestions of experienced travellers, both native and foreign, have been requested and obtained. The greater number of the maps are in a very advanced state, and are engraved on such a plan as to admit of all the alterations that fresh discoveries may render necessary at any time previous to publication.
The work will be completed in Seventeen Parts, each containing Three Maps. A part will be published every month, price half a guinea. The size of each map has been fixed at twenty inches by sixteen, those dimensions being found most convenient for preservation and reference, and in the chorographical delineations, as well as in the orthography of the names inserted, the strictest attention to accuracy has been and will be unremittingly bestowed.
*** A few India Proof Impressions will be taken off and carefully coloured, price 15s. per Number, and as no more will be printed than are previously subscribed for, early orders are solicited.

ALTHOUGH the extensive sale of the LITERARY GAZETTE, which has been esta. blished above Ten years, evinces that its utility and merits have been highly appreciated, and that it has largely gained the esteem of the literary and inquiring world, yet the Proprietors are desirous of pointing out how peculiarly it is calculated for the improvement and entertainment of every intelligent family, and for the object of placing its readers upon a satisfactory level with the best informed persons in society. In its pages, which, from their form and type, contain a great quantity of matter, all the important New Works are noticed immediately on their publication ; and before the public have had time or opportunity to peruse them, the readers of the LITERARY Gazette are possessed of their most interesting passages, together with a candid opinion of their general character: this in itself supplies a copious fund of rational amusement to the intellectual mind, drawn from the eminent authors of the day; but in the same Journal will also be found the earliest Accounts of Scientific Voyages and Expeditions—the particulars of New Discoveries and Useful Inventions, and, indeed, all the News relating to the progress of human intelligence. Original Papers on a variety of curious or interesting subjects ;Criticisms on the Performances of the Theatres, Opera, and Concerts ;Reviews of Exhibitions, and all remarkable Productions in the Arts and Music;
-in short, whatever tends to elegant refinement and beneficial information, is eagerly sought to be communicated in an agreeable manner. To describe the multiplicity of contents, would be to enumerate the many topics which engage the attention, and are the themes of conversation in every intelligent and accomplished circle. Even the most busy may spare a sufficient number of balf hours in the course of the week to peruse the separate articles of the GAZETTE, while its small expense (only eight-pence per week) facilitates its introduction to the breakfast-table and fire-side of all who desire to improve their domestic hours, and carry abroad with them a sufficient acquaintance with the subjects which they may hear discussed. On these grounds the LITERARY GAZETTE is again particularly recommended as a Family Journal.
