As a whole the Cyclopedia includes all the usual divisions of human knowledge that are not of a technical or professional kind. The sciences and arts have been treated in a plain and familiar style, adapted to the general reader; and the high rank in science held by most of the authors in this department affords a guarantee for soundness and accuracy. Besides these claims on attention offered by its separate divisions, the entire series will be found very advantageous for families resident in the country, who are not possessed of a library; for emigrants, and as a cabin library for vessels bearing passengers to distant parts; and for the libraries of Mechanics' Institutions, Literary and Philosophical Societies, the Army and the Navy, and of Colonial Institutions.
