clares that a conflict of race is now
upon us and that negro women are

The work originally pubis lied under the
title of The New American Cyclopedia
was completed in 18(13, since which time
the wide circulation which it has attained
in all parts of the United States, and the
signal developments which have taken place
in every branch of science, literature, and
art, have induced the editors and publishers
to submit it to an exact and thorough revis
ion, and to issue a new edition entitled
The American CYCxor.:iiA.
Within the last ten vears the progress of
discovery in every department of knowl
edge has made a new work of reference an
The movement of political affairs nas Kept
pace with the discoveries of science, and
their fruitful application to the industrial
and useful arts and the convenience and re
finement of poeial life. (Jreat wars and con
sequent revolutions have occured, involv
ing national changes of peculiar moment.
The civil war of our own country, which
was at its height when the last volume of
the old work appeared, has happily lxen
ended, and a new course of commercial
and industrial activity has been com
Large accessions to our geographical
knowledge have leen made by the indefati
gable explorers of Africa.
The creat political revolutions ol tlie last
decade, with the natural result of. the lapse
of time, have brought into public view a
multitude of new men, whose names are in
every one's month, and of whose lives every
one is curious to know the particulars.
Great battles have been fought and imort-
ant sieges maintained, of which the details
are as yet preserved only in the newspa
pers or in the transient publications of the.
day. but whih ought now to take their
place in permanent and authentic nsiory.
In prewiring the present edition for the
press, it has accordingly been the aim of
the editors to bring down the information
to the latest possible tlates. and to furnish
dn accurate account of the most recent dis-
oveiie; in science, of every fresh produc
tion in liteiature. and of the latest inven
tions in the practical arts, as well as to give
succinct ami original recom oi tne prog
ress of political and historical events.
The work has been begun after long and
careful preliminary labor, and with the

printed on new type, forming in fact a new
CyclopoHlia, with the same plan end com
pass as its predecessor, but with a far great
er pecuniary expenditure, and with such
improvements in its composition as have
leen suggested by longer experience and en
The illustrations which are introduced
for the first time in the present edition have
been added not for the sake of pictorial ef
fect, but to give greater lucidity and force to
the explanations in the text. They embrace
all branches of science and of natural histo
ry, and depict the most famous and remark
able features of scenery, architecture, and
art, as well as the various processes of me
chanics and manufactures. Although in
tended fo rinstmction rather than embellish
ment, no pains have been spared to insure
their artistic excellence; the cost of their
execution is enormous, and it is believed
they will find ft welcome reception as an ad
mirable feature of the Cyclopaedia, and
worthy of its high character.
This work is sold to Subscribers only,
payable on delivery of each volume. It will
be completed in sixteen large octavo vol
umes, each containing alsint 800 pages,
