The late ingenious Mr. COCKIN, of Burton, wrote the preface to the second edition of this work, and revised the whole after the death of Mr. WEST: he also wrote all the articles marked with the letter X. All who knew Mr. C. will be satisfied how well he was qualified for the undertaking; and the internal evidence of the articles themselves, and the sale of ten editions. will, it is expected, be sufficient for others.
In thus edition, such corrections and improvements are made, as have appeared necessary since the publication of the former, in order to make the whole complete.
W. P.
Kendal, 1821.
