LONDON REVIEW,

FOR JANUARY, 1777.

Essays, on the Nature and Immutability of Truth, in Opposition to Sophistry and Scepticism; on Poetry and Music, as they affect the Mind; on Laughter, and Ludicrous Composition; on the Utility of Classical Learning. By James Beattie, LL.D. Professor of Moral Philosophy and Logic in the Marischal College and University of Aberdeen, 4to. Dilly.

To these Efsays is prefixed the following advertisement, which the author modestly thought necessary, to apologize, in some measure, for their publication, in their present form.

“ This Publication has been attended with some peculiar circum. stances, wbich may be misunderstood, and which, therefore, I beg leave to explain.

“ About three years ago, fome persons of distinction in England, who had honoured me with their friendship, were pleased to express a desire, that the EssAY ON TRUTH should be printed in a more fplendið form than that in which it had hitherto appeared; and su as to ensure profit, as well as honour, to the author. And the proprietors of the copy-right, being at the same time applied to, declared their willingness to permir an Edition to be printed for his advantage, on bis agreeing to certain terms, which were thought renfonable.

" It was then proposed, that a new Edition of the Esay should be printed in quarto, by subscription. To this the Author had some objections. He was apprehenfive, that the size of that work might be inadequate to such a purpose. Belides, to publich in this manner a book, which had alieady gone through two or three Editions, feemed hazardous, because unprecedented; and might, to those who were usinformed of the attair, give ground to suspect the Author of an infirmity, which no person who knows him will ever lay to his charge, an excessive love of money.

" It was answered, That the volume might be extended to a sufficiency of size, by printing, along with that on Truth, some other Efars, which, though not originally deligned for the press, his Friends, who had seen them, were ple.fed to think not unworthy of ' it; and that the Proposed Subfcription, being of a peculiar kin!, should be conducted in a peculiar manner, " It Mall never," laid the promoters of this undertaking, “ be committed to Bookfellers, , Vol. V.
