To collect into a focus, a series of Origins and Etymologies, that lay scattered through various Publications, ancient and modern ;-to place within the reach of all, what hitherto could only be procured by the few ;-to instruct the rising generation, to amuse the curious of all ages, and to save trouble to the antiquary, a mass of interesting and instructive matter, has been concentrated within the small compass of this volume, and which, the Compiler unhesitatingly submits to the Public, with the conviction, that should it be found below their praise, it will, nevertheless, remain undeserving of their censure.
