First. There are in this edition, numerically, seventy-six more pages than in the first; but owing to a triﬂing enlargement of the page, and to the notes being printed in a smaller type, there are, at least, one hundred and fifty more pages of the same size and type as the first edition. Yet for all this, no advance in the price is contemplated by the publishers.
