The public are here presented, for the first ime, with an elegant pocket edition of Mr. Hoyle's Games, forming itself into a complete companion to the card-table, and rendering a reference to any other works of a similar nature totally unne. cessary. The whole has been carefully revised, and newly arranged; every writer of merit has been consulted with the greatest caution; and such additions and corrections have been made, as were found necessary to the perfection of the work. With these advantages, the proprietors look forward with confidence to its introduction into all the fashionable circles, and its general adoption by the public at large, as they are conscious it will be found more convenient in its form, more elegant in execution, and more correct in its matter, than any edition of she same work which has hitherto appeared.
