In this enlightened age, when every day brings forth something new on the subject of education and inorality, it is matter of considerable surprise, that writings of such intrinsic ralue as the present should so long have lain dormant. The talents of Seneca were justly estimated by his contemporaries, and long after his decease; and as modern times cannot boast of similar works of superior merit, the proprietors, anxious to restore to society every thing valuable and essential to the interests of the present generation, have been induced to bring forward a new, being the sixTEENTH edition, of Seneca's Morals,, diisering only from the former editions in some arrangements relative to the typographic department, partecularly in affiring the head of each page a new title, which, they trust, will be considered not only as a matter of improvement, but of utility; as the head-lines will, in a great measure, guide the reader in finding out whatever subject he may want.
