IN issuing this, the first complete and uniform edition of M. De Tocqueville's Democracy in America, the Publishers avail themselves of the opportunity to state the advantages which the present possesses over previous editions of the work. Beside incorporating the additional notes and emendations contained in the recent Paris edition, it includes an original and copious analytical Index, and an explanatory Map combining the new Census of 1840, now for the first time published in this country. The sale of four large impressions of the first portion of the work in this country, and a much larger circulation of it in England and France, sufficiently attest the high estimation with which it has been regarded. The entire work is now stereotyped, having been carefully collated, and passed under a thorough revision, with a view of rendering it as perfect as possible, and more befitting its character as the standard philosophical work on the genius of democracy, and for, what it is believed it will speedily become, a text-book of the schools, and a classic of the age.
