Such geographical definitions, schemes, and descriptions, as form a necessary introduction to this branch of learning. III. The situation and extent of the several kingdoms, and nations in each quarter; their chief city; with the distance, direction, and difference of time from London. IV. An account of the several islands, trade, commodities, religions, number of inhabitants, principal mountains, and rivers in the world; also some observations on the less known parts, the trade winds, and monsoons.
