Collection of all the Treaties of Peace,
Commerce, and Alliance, between Great Britain and Other Powers, from the Revolution to the present Time, requires no Recommendation. The Utility of such a Work is sufficiently obvious to the Gentleman, and the Politician. To the Statesman it is a Code, or Body of Law ; fince a Collection of Treaties is to him of the same use, that a Collection of the Statutes is to a Lawyer. Two things only are necessary in both, viz. that they should be complete and correct. With regard to this Work it can be truly said, that no Pains have been spared to make it complete; and it is presumed, from the care that has been taken, no material Omiffion will be discovered. One or two short Observations, it is hoped, will not seem improper. A Collection of Treaties was published in the Year 1732; and is now very scarce, The Treaties contained in that Work are not only very irregularly arranged, but upon comparing them with the detached Copies published by Authority, were found
to be very inaccurately printed; and some Treaties were wholly omitted. The Method pursued in this work is chronological. And, in order to make it as correct as possible, whenever the Treaties have been published by Authority, those Publications only have been copied ; and whenever ro Translation by Authority has appeared, the Original is inserted, together with a Translation.
