have been so long engaged ? It cannot be supposed, that either of them wants employment; that he has no other literary amusements which invite his attention! They quit their work with a sigh, because they are convinced, that its use is not insignificant, and its discontinuance will be a loss; for it cannot be necessary to declare, that their views have been the most remote from mercenary, and that their labours have been solely prompted by a desire to promote this department of Bibliographical knowledge. The writer of this Preface may be forgiven for here asserting of his coadjutor Mr. Haslewood, that his union of arduous and inextinguishable industry with opportunities created by his long experience in this pursuit, have given him the power of preserving numerous literary memorials, beyond what is ever likely again to be rivalled, or even imitated !

It is highly consolatory to the Editors, that their last number is filled with matter so rich and so curious, that no candid judges can suspect them of exhausted stores ! The first article of that number, from the pen of one of the most eminent ornaments of that illustrious University, in which he justly holds so conspicuous a station, may be fairly pointed to, for a justification of language, that some may deern arrogant! On this account, if on no other, the Editors again heave a sigh, that here closes the British BIBLIOGRAPHER!
