This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text, images, or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1839. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... Postscript. Notwithstanding the earnest request of our publisher, we have been unable to procure from the critical world any encomiums on our production before it was produced. We think this, considering the many admirable precedents in our behalf, rather hard; but determined that our work shall come forth in all things agreeable to the publishing fashion of the times, we have selected from the old masters that which was denied us by the new; and we trust that the " discerning" public will at once recognise with us the truth of the prophetic spirit in which our labours are by them described.

" We prophecy an abundant harvest."--Moore's Almanac. See also " The Young Mans Mirror," "Every Man his own Printer," " Pastime Published," &c. &c. &c. We find at the last moment that " Public Schools," " David and Jonathan," &c, &c, are obliged to be omitted, notwithstanding that we have given an extra half sheet, an impertinence that we do not mean...
