TO THE

THIRD EDITION.

PETER PARLEY's Tales about Animals; about Eu. rope, Asia, Africa, America; The Sea, and the Islands of the Pacific; The Sun, Moon, and Stars ; and also his Tales about England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, have acquired a reputation beyond any thing of the kind that has ever been published. One of them has been translated into Modern Greek by the Missionaries at Malta, and one is published in the French language. More than one hundred thousand copies of the several works are sold annually in America.

In consideration of their great celebrity and obvious adaptation to youth, the Publishers determined to give the most important to the British Public. They are abundantly illustrated with Cuts; and it is presumed that they will be found better calculated to unite amusement with instruction than any similar publications which have hitherto appeared.
