Includes contents for second and third parts, p. xvii-xvii, with note "I give here the contents of the whole work as finished, although the publication of the second and third parts is deferred. It is deferred, as my bookseller doubts whether a work written on subjects of this nature, by a person of no literary character, will become an article of sale sufficient to pay the cost of publishing, although, as I never take any money from a bookseller, the copy costs him nothing."
