READER.

Reader,

I Here present thee with the Translation of an Author who has never yet appeared in an English Dress; one so famous far that fort of Learning he treats oj\ that I thought it might prove no ungrateful Work to the Publick to make him speak our Language, which has hitherto been so great a Stranger to Chronology, the Subject which our Author here so learnedly handles. In it thou wilt find that Accuracy, Method, and Exact? nefe, that it may justly be esteemed the most useful Book os this kind that has ever yet appeared abroad in the World, and veithall so fully written, that it contains all that is necessary to be taught a young Qentleman concerning Chronology.

The Usefulness of this Study I cannot better recommend to thee, than in the Words of the Ingenious and Learned Mr. Lock; who thus expresses himself upm this Occasion in his Extraordinary Thoughts concerning Education (p. 327.) With Geography (fyshf) Chronology ought to go Hand in Hand ,
