BE IT REMEMBERED, that on the tenth day of August, in the fifty-fourth year of the Independence of the United States of America, A. D. 1829, Carey, Lea & Carey, of the said district, have deposited in this office the title of a book, the right whereof they claim as proprietors, in the words following, to wit:
"Encyclopædia Americana. A Popular Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, Literature, History, Politics and Biography, brought down to the present Time; including a copious Collection of Original Articles in American Biography; on the Basis of the seventh Edition of the German Conversations-Lexicon. Edited by Francis Lieber, assisted by E. Wigglesworth."
In conformity to the act of the Congress of the United States, entitled, "An Act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts and books to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned:" and also to the act, entitled, "An Act supplementary to an act, entitled, 'An Act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts and books to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned; and extending the benefits thereof to the arts of designing, engraving and etching historical and other prints."
Clerk of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
Ar the beginning of this work, it was mentioned, that the zoological articles would be contributed by Dr. Godman of Philadelphia. It has now become our painful duty to inform our readers, that we are deprived of his valuable assistance by his death, which took place on the 17th of April, 1830. The articles in this department will, however, be communicated by a gentleman whom Dr. Godman himself designated to supply his place.
The recent great and rapid changes in the state of the world, which continually present new accumulations of matter of general interest, and the laborious nature of the present undertaking, having rendered additional assistance necessary, to enable us to bring out the volumes with sufficient despatch, Mr. Bradford, whose name now appears on the title-page, is engaged to aid permanently in the remainder of the work. We hope to be able, therefore, to gratify the wishes of our readers, in future, by the publication of a volume every three months.
Boston, Dec. 1830.
An improved form of the tabular view of the European States, belonging to the article Europe, in Vol. IV, will be found immediately after the Index to this volume.
