Scope and Content

Volume one is entitled: A miscellaneous selection or a concise view of a variety of moral and entertaining anecdotes from the Creation... extracted from a number of authors both ancient and modern, which may be a great assistance to weak capacities, and particularly entertaining and instructive to youth without a tedious recourse to voluminous productions, those being compiled in alphabetical order, easy recourse may be had to a particular subject... all selected by Daniel Osborne after a seven years study, and closed in December 1800. With an Index.
