THE

GUIDE TO

Τ TO KNOWLEDGE,

OR

REPERTORY OF FACTS;

FORMING A COMPLETE

LIBRARY OF ENTERTAINING INFORMATION,

IN THE

SEVERAL DEPARTMENTS OF SCIENCE, LITERATURE, AND ART.

EMBELLISHED BY SEVERAL HUNDRED ENGRAVINGS.

EDITED BY ROBERT SEARS.

“ The greatest error is the mistaking of the true end of KNOWLEDGE, for men have entered into a desire of
LEARNING and KNOWLEDGE, sometimes, to entertain their minds with variety and delight; sometimes for
ornament and reputation ; sometimes, to enable them to victory of wit and contradiction; and most times for
lucre and profession; but seldom, sincerely to give a true account of their gift of reason, to the benefit and
use of men: as if there were sought in KNOWLEDGE, a couch, whereupon to rest a searching and restless
spirit; or a terrace, for a wandering and variable mind to walk up and down, with a fair prospect ; or a tower of
state, for a proud mind to raise itself upon; or a fort or commanding ground, for strife and contention; or a
shop, for profit and sale; and not a rich storehouse for the glory of the Creator, and the relief of man's
estate.”- Bacon.
