WM, S, SHAW,
TO THE THIRD OCTAVO EDITION, FROM WHICH THIS
ABRIDGMENT IS MADE.
THE demand for this work hill contlnuing, not withi: Aanding the publication of other works on Arithmetiek and the higher branches of the Mathemetleks, is evidence of its intrinfiek merit, and has induced the Proprietors of the copy-right to present the publick with a new and ima proved Edition.
Application was made to the Author, requesting him ta revise and improve the work for a new Edition but he declined on account of want of health, and the Gentle. man, whom we employed, was engaged by the Author's consent, and improved and corrected the work agreeably to his direction and advice.
The most important improvement in this Edition, is the introduction of examples in the Federal Currency under each rule; and while this was considered neceffary, in or. der to extend the knowledge and use of that currency, it was thought important not to omit examples in pounds, fhillings and pence, which are, and will continue to be, the basis of many arithmetical questions ; and therefore an acquaintance with them will always be useful.
Mr. NATHANIEL LORD. 3d, of Iptwrich, the Gentle man employed to correct and improve the work, hus be. stowed much attention upon it, and has received from Mr. Pike all the information and advice he desired. The manner in which Mr. Lord has execuied the talk entrusted to him, will, we hope, gain additional reputation for the work, and entitle him to the thanks of the publick.
THOMAS & ANDREWS. Boston, April, 1808.
