carried on, and which still continues to be published in Weekly Numbers with undiminished reputation, confessedly gave rise to the present undertaking, which is distinguished by the appellation of the Monthly or New Novelist's MAGAZINE,
The plan of the former comprehends all the larger Novels and ROMANCES of eminence, Foreign as well as English, from CLARISSA, in eight volumes, to VOLTAIRE'S SINCERE Huron, in one; at prices often more than two hundred per cent. less than the very fame works are usually sold for, even without Copper-plates : and the design of the latter is, to serve up to the Public, on terms proportionably advantageous, an elegant collection of the many beautiful little Tales and STORIES scattered throughout innumerable voluminous Miscellanies; which are frequently purchased with avidity, at a great expence, for the sake of a few pages only, the remainder being of no value to those who read for amulement.
Both the Old and the New Novelist's MAGAZINES are uniformly printed and embellished; and they are highly suitable and proper, though not indispensable Companions.
may be necessary to add, that the present undertaking will be enriched with a great number of entirely New TRANSLATIONS from the French, Italian, and other polite languages; with the addition of as many ORIGINAL Tales, as the Editor can obtain from learned and ingenious Friends, willing to affist him in exposing the deformities of Vice, and displaying the loveliness of Virtue, by a mode which has, perhaps, more universal influence on the human heart, than any other that the fage and moralift have yet been able to discover,
