Discovery, Periodicals, Utility
Observes: 'In the "Arcana of Science" will be found Abstracts of the principal Discoveries of the past six months, together with a few valuable Documents or Paper on questions of contemporary interest; which, it is hoped, have been distinguished by their usefulness, as well as by their attractions for scientific inquirers' (iii–iv). Notes that the 'Architectural Series' is a 'proof of the Proprietors' anxiety to identify "The Mirror" with the Novelties of Science and Art, as well as to render it an agreeable Miscellany of General Literature' (iv).
