Fleet-Street, Nov. 23, 1791. Mr. Harding Has Now the Pleasure to Inform the Subscribers to This Work [electronic resource]: That It Will Be Completed in Thirty Numbers, and Even to Comprize It Within That Compass, He Will Be Under the Necessity of Giving in the Future Numbers Considerably More Engravings Than Were Originally Promised in Each Number, Though the Price Will Continue the Same: A Circumstance Which He Cannot Lament, as It Gives Him an Opportunity of Shewing His Gratitude for the Very Liberal Encouragement This Work Has Met With. As He Finds That a Few Gentlemen, Though They Expressed a Very High Approbation Both of the Present Undertaking, and of the Manner in Which It Has Been Executed, Have Neglected to Subscribe to It, From a Mistaken Notion That the Whole Work Might Be Purchased at a Cheaper Rate When Finished, Mr. Harding Begs Leave to Inform the Publick in General, That Positively No More Than Seven Hundred Impressions of the Plates Will Be Worked Off; After Which the Plates Will Be Destroyed. The Subscription Will Be Open Till the Work Shall Be Entirely Finished, or the Total Number of Impressions Shall Be Sold; But the Unjust Mode of Demanding a Premium From Those Who Wish to Become Subscribers, Will at No Time Be Adopted

    a| Fleet-Street, Nov. 23, 1791. Mr. Harding has now the pleasure to inform the subscribers to this work h| [electronic resource] : b| that it will be completed in Thirty Numbers, and even to comprize it within that Compass, he will be under the Necessity of giving in the future Numbers considerably more Engravings than were originally promised in each Number, though the Price will continue the same: a Circumstance which he cannot lament, as it gives him an Opportunity of shewing his Gratitude for the very liberal Encouragement this Work has met with. As he finds that a few Gentlemen, though they expressed a very high Approbation both of the present Undertaking, and of the Manner in which it has been executed, have neglected to subscribe to it, from a mistaken Notion that the whole Work might be purchased at a cheaper Rate when finished, Mr. Harding begs Leave to inform the Publick in general, that positively no more than Seven Hundred Impressions of the Plates will be worked off; after which the Plates will be destroyed. The Subscription will be open till the Work shall be entirely finished, or the total Number of Impressions shall be sold; but the unjust Mode of demanding a Premium from those who wish to become Subscribers, will at no Time be adopted.
