FOR PUBLISHING, IN MONTHLY NUMBERS, AT TEN SHILLINGS EACH,
NEW GENERAL ATLAS,
WITH CONSIDERABLE IMPROVEMENTS.
r is purposed to commence, on the 1st of October 1818, a re-publicaon of the New GENERAL Atlas, in Monthly Parts. To delineate the Geography of our Globe on a large scale, drawings are made to correspond in size with the works of the celebrated D'Anville, form the largest Atlas published on a uniform plan; from these Drawgs, Engravings have been executed by the first Artists in the Kingdom, 1. Hewitt, Hall, Neele, Dassauville, Menzies, Clerk, Moffat, Lizars, &c. The information on which the accuracy of these drawings depend, is rived principally from Maps published in the Countries they repreit, as France from Cassini-Germany from Chauchard-Spain from pez-Holland from Zepp---Prussia, Russia, and other European ngdoms from their Government Surveys. Asia does not present such facilities for perfecting her Geography; but portant improvements on former Maps bave been derived from the vey made of the South Coast of Asia Minor, by Beaufort; from the ices of Kinneir and Malcolm, relative to Persia; from the discoveries ulting from the Nepaul war, and from the late Expedition to China, The African division, in addition to the former best authenticated innation, has had the recent discoveries made by the Travellers, sent out Societies formed for promoting discoveries, in the interior of that Quardown to Captain Tuckey's attempt to ascend the Zaire, or Congo. The North American Continent has had numerous additions from Surs made under the Government of the United States; and the Southern sion of that Quarter is corrected by the Geographical notices of mboldt and Bonpland. "he Voyages of Cook, Perouse, Flinders, &c. have nearly withdrawn veil that so long hung over the Southern division of the Globe. The cks and Discoveries of these and other Navigators have been marked
care and attention, and the Publishers look forward to the possibility Iding the results of the two Expeditions now fitting out, one to reach North Pole, the other to pass from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. his Work will contain 74 Maps, a Memoir of the Progress of Geohy, a Chapter on Physical Geography, a View of the Comparative iht of Mountains, and a Comparative View of the Length of Rivers; a Consulting Index, to facilitate the finding out of the principal places.
