Tutte le inrenzioni le più benemerite del genere umano, e che hanno svillupato l'ingegno
e la facoltà dell' animo nostro, sono quelle che accostano l' uomo all' uomo, e facilitano la
communicazione delle idee, dei bisogni, dei sentimenti, e riducano il genere umano a massa.

“ Though immediately and primarily written for the merchants, this Commercial Dictionary will be «f use to every man of business or of curiosity. There is no man who is not in some degree a merchant; who has not something to buy and something to sell, and who does not: therefore want such instructions as may teach him the true value of possessions or commodities. The descriptions of the productions of the earth and water which this volume contains, may be equally pleasing and useful to the speculatist with any other Natural History. The descriptions of ports and cities may instruct the geographer as well as if they were found in books appropriated only to his own science; and the doctrines of funds, insurances, currency, monopolies, exchanges, and duties, is so necessary to the politician, that without it he can be of no use cither in the council or the senate, nor can speak or think justly either on war or trade.

“ We, therefore, hope that we shall not repent the labour of compiling this work, nor flatter ourselves asonably, in predicting a favourable reception to a book which no condition of life can render useless, which may contribute to the advantage of all that make or receive laws, of all that buy or sell, of all that wish to keep or improve their

possessions, of all that desire to be rich, and all that desire to be wise."

Johnson, Preface to Rolt's Dict.
