The plan and arrangement of the work may appear some what novel, but it is that which has been chosen after mature deliberation, as best adapted to the nature of the subject. In Part I. The chain of Scripture history is pursued until the final settlement of the Israelites in the promised land; with such geographical notice of the places mentioned, as was thought necessary to the full understanding of the subject. Particular care has been taken to describe the different settlements of the immediate posterity of Noah, as this was deemed impor tant, in order to elucidate many circumstances relating to the names and early history of different countries. It will be found, upon examination, that most countries and cities in the early ages of the world, were named from the families or per sons by whom they were first peopled or founded; and also that colonies settled in remote regions, frequently retained the name of the parent state. A want of attention to these gene ral facts has caused much Obscurity and confusion in ancient geography. These consideratidns have induced us to give the introductory part of this work its historical form, and it is believed that the attentive and judicious reader will be sen sible of its advantages.
