"How many readers are there who would not be glad of attaining to knowledge the shortest way, seeing the orb

thereof is swollen to such a magnitude, and life but such a span to grasp it? How many who have not some
curiosity to know the foundations of those tenets upon which they so securely trust their understanding? or
where the footsteps of those opinions and precedents may be found which have given direction to so many
modern performances? In a word, if he be ignorant, who would not wish to enlarge his knowiedge? If he
be knowing, who would not willingly refresh his memory?"-OLDYS.
