Stephen Glover has been induced, contrary to his original
intention, to publish the work in parts, on account of his
having obtained an accumulation of interesting materials,
far exceeding his most sanguine expectations. This mass
of important matter is the result, partly of his own re-
searches, and partly of kind contributions of intelligent per-
sons in every portion of the County. For this reason,
the History will necessarily be extended to a size MUCH
GREATER than was originally projected ; and will comprise
THREE OTHER PARTS of considerable bulk.

The SECOND PART, which will complete the FIRST
VOLUME, will contain

The remainder of the General Political History,

Statistics, Government, &c. of the County,
Ancient Genealogical History,
Biography of eminent persons, either natives of Derbyshire,

or long resident in the County.

The THIRD PART (which will form the FIRST PART of the
SECOND VOLUME) will comprise about HALF OF THE

General History of the Towns, Villages, &c. obtained from
sources entirely, or for the most part, new.

PAROCHIAL HISTORY, will terminate the work.

The SECOND VOLUME, the FIRST PART of which is
nearly ready for publication, will contain above fifty copper
and steel engravings of noblemen's and gentlemen's seats,
churches, monuments, &c. and about one hundred and twenty
shields of armorial bearings of the resident families, with
tables of genealogy.
