The French journal 'Revue Encyclopédique, Ou Analyse Raisonnée' identified this anonymously-published English work as a literal translation of Jullien's 'L'Essai sur l'Emploi du Tems' in 1823 but on comparison, it appears to be a freer rendering, though heavily indebted to the French work. Regardless of its origins, it was popular enough to warrant this second edition in the same year as the first.
