NOTICE TO THE SIXTH PART.
In several former preliminary notices I have called attention to some of the more important of my additions, and think it as well to continue the practice. I have therefore to state that the present part is increased full one-fourth on the original work, and every page materially enlarged, as reference to the following names, some of which are entirely new, will testify :M‘CULLOCH, J. B. MACGREGOB, John. MACKINTOSH, Sir James. MALCOLM, Sir John. MANTELL, Dr. MANUALE AD USUM SABUM. MARKHAM, Gervase. MARRYAT, Capt. MARTIN, R. M. MARY STUART. MASSACHUSETTS. MATHER, Cotton and Increase. MENDHAM, Jos. MILMAN, Rev. H. MILTON John. MISSALE. MITFORD, Miss. MONTGOMERY, James and Robert. · MOORE, Thos. MORE, Hannah. MORGAN, Lady. MORMON, Book of. MURRAY, Lindley. NAPOLEON. NewMAN, J. H. NEWTON, Sir Isaac. NICHOLS, John. NICHOLSON, Peter. NICOLAS, Sir Harris. NORTON, Hon. Mrs. NOWELL, Alexander. OLIVER, Rev. George. ORDNANCE SURVEYS. ORMEROD, George. Ossian. OTTLEY, W. G. OVID. OWEN, Rich.
It was not my original intention, as stated in a Notice to the Second Part, to introduce any names which had not already been given by Lowndes, taking it for granted that he would be complete to the date of publication, 1834, and that I should iv

merely have to continue his lists; and to this rule I at first adhered, but afterwards found so many important omissions in the department of contemporary Literature, that it became necessary to abandon the prescribed limit. Accordingly, the present part will be found to contain many such additional names as Capt. Marryat, Dean Milman, John Henry Newman, Sir Harris Nicolas, and Professor Owen; all of whom had acquired literary reputation before the period in question, and were better entitled to mention than some who have been included.
The next part is in progress, and will, I hope, be published in the ensuing spring.
