A New System, or, An Analysis of Ancient Mythology Wherein an attempt is made to divest Tradition of Fable; and to reduce Truth to its Original Purity. With a Portrait and some Account of ther Author; a Vindication of the Apamean Medal; Observations and Inquiries relating to various Parts of Antient History; a complete Index, and Forty-one Plates, neatly engraved.
London: J. Walker [and 20 other booksellers], 1807. 6 vols., 8vo, with 41 plates re-engraved after Basire, Chambers, and Bartolozzi chiefly by J. LeKeux, and none by Blake (see below). Contemporary calf, rebacked with new labels, quite worn. In good condition internally. Third edition, so stated but actually the 4th after 3 quarto editions. It is my purpose in the ensuing work to give an account of the first ages; and of the great events, which happened in the infancy of the world. In consequence, I shall lay before the reader, what Gentile writers have said upon this subject, collaterally with the accounts given by Moses, as long as I find him engaged in the general history of mankind. Bentley, Blake Books, 439B: all the plates had to be re-engraved
to supplement ten new plates.
