to Non-Subscribers 21. 2s. each Part. The Price will be raised higher to Non-Subscribers, as the work advances. The whole will make about 120, but not exceeding 130, Parts-and twelve Parts will be printed in the year without fail. Each part to be paid for on delivery. As only a certain number of Copies will be printed, the work cannot be sold in separate Parts, or Authors.

It may not be improper to observe, that a complete set of the Delphin Editions sold at the Roxburghe Sale in 1812 for above 500%., and that a uniform set of the VARIORUM cannot be obtained at any price. To collect the Editions which will be reprinted in that now offered to the public would cost many hundred pounds; whereas the present new Edition will cost but 107. 16s. per annum for ten years.

The necessity of publishing such a NATIONAL WORK by subscription is obvious, as it prevents all apprehensions of any check to its completion,-without which it could not be undertaken. Present subscription, large and small, 556.

A list of subscribers will be published with the work. In case of the decease of any subscriber, his family will be permitted to continue the subscription at the original price, as is done with the Stephens' Greek Thesaurus.

To save expense, it is particularly requested that a reference may be given to some friend or agent in London, where the parts may be left and the money received. Any person travelling abroad, may have his copy kept at Mr. Valpy's until his return.

Mr. Valpy will gladly exchange a set of the Regent's edition for a complete set of the Delphin 4to., however damaged, if legible, as they are to print from. Letters for such exchange to be postpaid.

Mr. Valpy wishes it more particularly to be understood, that no delay whatever can occur in the publication of twelve parts annually, as some observations have been made on the slow progress of Stephens' Greek Thesaurus: on which subject it may be only necessary to say, that the subscribers alone are the gainers by such delay, and the Editors the losers; for it is obvious that a more hurried production would have been of greater benefit to them; but the fact is, that the unexpectedly large subscription determined them to give to their Subscribers a larger quantity of materials, for which considerable sums were paid, and which could not fail greatly to enrich the Thesaurus; for a Review of which, by Professor HERMANN, see No. XXXV. of the Classical Journal. Had it been printed as fast as was possible, what Subscriber would not justly have condemned the Editors? With respect to the present work, the labor is clearly defined, and therefore easy of calculation.
