Notes
  • "The first and second volumes of the Elements of useful knowledge, having been well received by my fellow citizens, I have compiled a third volume, which ... may be more interesting; as the countries here described present innumerable subjects of description which are not found in the United States. ..."--Advertisement, p. [3]. Dated: New-Haven, July 19, 1806.
  • Copyright July 23, 1806.
  • "Note. It is thought not expedient to swell the price of this book, by inserting maps of the countries described, for maps in such a work are soon torn and destroyed. The best mode of furnishing the student with maps, is in a collection bound together, called an atlas. ... The best collection, at a moderate price, is, perhaps, that originally published in Philadelphia, by John Conrad & Co. to accompany Pinkerton's Geography, now published by Thomas & Andrews, of Boston. ..."--p. [288].
