Few publications in the range of English Literature, since the days of Dryden, have proved more acceptable to the generality of readers than those which, under a variety of titles, have taken their contents from the works of the best original writers; indeed, if the number of our seminaries, and the great extent of the middle class of society (for whose use such publications are peculiarly adapted), be considered, it will cease to be matter of surprise that so large a demand has been made for Miscellanies and Collections of every description. The task of their formation may be humble; yet so useful bas the result been acknowledged, that not only has the great Poet above instanced contributed his judgment in selection, but the labours of others of less poetic fame, but of great editorial skill and industry, have been sanctioned by the approbation of the Public. That the present attempt may not be considered as inferior to those of the same nature which have preceded it, is the chief ambition of the Editor, who has no desire to en. bance his own merits by decrying the merits of others.
