TO THE PRESENT EDITION.

The present edition of Burke's works is more complete than
any one which has hitherto appeared either in England or Amer-
ica. It comprises the entire contents of the English edition of
his works in sixteen octavo volumes, including two volumes of
speeches on the trial of Hastings, published in 1827, and which
have never before been republished in this country. It also
contains a reprint of the work entitled “ An Account of the
European Settlements in America,” first published in 1761,
which, though published anonymously, is well known to have
been written by Burke. This is not contained in the English
edition of his collected works. Although the present edition
contains a volume more than the latest and best English one,
it is offered at less than one half the price. It has been the
aim of the publishers to present the work in a form and style
worthy of its contents; and it is confidently offered to the fa-
vorable regard of the public from its completeness, its moderate
price, and its typographical excellence.
