The Publisher's Advertisement to the Reader.

THis excellent Piece (modell to that He­roick Worke, The History of the World) being an exquisite Abstract and Summary of all the famous Kingdomes and Empires that ever were; how worthy it is of publick view, will soon appeare to a discerning judgement. In this suc­cinct Recollection is contrived (by a Daedalean Autor opus laudat. Ovid. de Ponto lib. 4 Eleg. 9. Hand) the Apotelesma and effect of infinite Volumes; the [Page] Originall, Progresse, and Duration of the most Glorious Monarchies & flourishing States of the World. A Synopsis so mainly conducent and essentially necessary to the right understanding of all Sacred and Se­cular Histories, as without the con­duct thereof (the like being never yet extant in English) small benefit can accrew to ordinary Readers. To reduce such a World of Matter, in­to so compendious Forme, can be adiudg'd no lesse then an Herculean taske. But of This, vulgar Capa­cities are as incompetent Iudges, as blinde Men of Colours. This Perspective is not fitted to the dull sight of Self-opinionate Ignaroês. To the intelligent and judicious Peruser, if it prove a gratefull worke [Page] (as to such, undoubtedly it will) the Publication may be justly reputed Operae pretium. Ave (mi Lector) & fave huic Opellulae: cui intùs Ambrosia.
