PRE FACE.

Ix presenting to the Public a Work with so comprehensive a Title as that of “ THE MAP OF EUROPE BY TREATY, from 1814 to 1875," I feel that a brief explanation is required, both as to its precise object and the Plan upon which it has been compiled. Its object is to show the changes which, by Treaty or other International Arrangements, have taken place in Europe within this period. The work is intended to bring together in a collected form the various Documents that have given Treaty sanction to these Territorial Changes, and which, in defining in this manner the LANDMARKS of Europe, constitute the TITLE DEEDS of the European Family.

The Documents are arranged throughout the entire work in chronological order; each Paper has a distinctive Number; and where references are made in one Document to a previous one, the Number is referred to, and not the date; but where subsequent Documents are referred to in the Notes, the Dates are given, and not the numbers, as it was found impossible to fix beforehand what the number of each Paper would be.

Each Treaty is preceded by a Table of Contents to the subjects contained therein; and each Article has a descriptive heading; whilst a sub-heading at the top of each page is given to denote the subject of the Document, or the name by which the Treaty is generally known.

With the view of avoiding the insertion of unnecessary matter, the purport only is given of the clauses of Treaties where the details are of no European interest.
