For PUBLISHING by SUBSCRIPTION,
IN THREE VOLUMES OCTAVO,
FREDERICK AUGUST LUDOWIG BUCHHOLTZ;
A PRUSSIAN GENTLEMAN.
Late Counsellor of War to his Majesty Frederick II. King of Prussia; Treasurer General and Privy Secretary to the Noble States of the Electorate of Brandenburgh; Deputy of the said States to all the Finance Establishments guaranteed by the States; for thirteen years a Farmer in England; and Member of the Select Committee of Correspondence of the Agricultural Society at Bath;
To THE PUBLIC IN ENGLAND AND IN GERMANY.
The Author's views in this Publication are: 1. To justify his conduct (as well in Germany as in England) from various malicious aspersions which have been thrown upon it with a most liberal hand. 2. To employ his time as much as in his power, to the praise of God, to the instruction and amusement of the Public, and to his own advantage. 3. To get a sum of money that may enable him to pay his lawful and just debts, (which have been chiefly contracted by his various experiments in Agriculture during eight years); perhaps to enable him to settle again in a Farm in England, in order to be sheltered from want, for the remaining part of his life.
The Work is already composed in the German language, and wants only to be translated by the Author into English.
VOL. I. The Author's Life from his birth to the age of twenty-five years; in
which will be given a Portrait of the Author, and a Ground Plan of Berlin,
both of which are already executed.
The Work will be dedicated to his Patrons, Friends, and Benefactors in
Germany, as well as in England, and their names specified.
