Each Work Sold Separately.
This Collection, of which more than one hundred volumes
are already issued, is intended to embrace the whole works of
the most distinguished authors, from Chaucer to Wordsworth,
with selections from the minor poets; accompanied with bio-
graphical, historical, and critical notices and portraits, – the
whole forming a far more complete, elegant, and cheap edition
of the British Poets than has ever appeared before.
The numerous testimonials to the excellence of this series,
which the publishers have received, both from the press and
the public, in all parts of the country, would seem to indicate
that a popular want has been met by this edition, which is
universally acknowledged to be the best ever issued, both in
point of editorship and mechanical execution.
Notices of the Press.
“We cannot speak too highly in praise of this edition - the
only one that deserves the name of 'complete' — of the British
Poets.” — Boston Daily Advertiser.
