ADVERTISEMENT.

THE DICTIONARY OF DAILY WANTS may be said to have done for matters of Practical Utility in Domestic Affairs, what the great naturalist, Linnæus, did for the science of Botany, it has brought the thousands of useful items scattered in disorder through an unlimited number of channels, into one Arrangement and System, by which they may be easily found and applied.

We assure those to whom this Dictionary may become a Household Book, that it has been compiled with the greatest care-that every line has been attentively considered before being suffered to pass through the press-that the Medical Articles, and those relating to Law, have been written by professional gentlemen not only qualified to write, but experienced by practice in their avocations ; and that, in the composition of the DICTIONARY, many talents have been employed, and many friendly hands engaged.

The DICTIONARY has already found a very large sale-no been issued. The DICTIONARY OF USEFUL KNOWLEDGE (a companion Work), forming a Book of Reference upon all matters of History, Geography, Science, Natural History, Statistics, &c., is now in progress, and is well worthy to stand by the side of the DICTIONARY OF DAILY WANTS : thus, the two DICTIONARIES form a complete and invaluable Encyclopædia, embracing all subjects of interest and of practical utility.

In compiling the DICTIONARY OF DAILY WANTS, the Editors have availed themselves of works by the most eminent authorities in various departments. A List of these authorities is appended, and the grateful acknowledgments of the Editors are hereby tendered to the Authors of the Books enumerated.
