ADVERTISEMENT.

The following work has been executed with a view of completing the original design of Doctor Aikin, whose volume comprised "a chronological series of the classical poets of Great Britain, from Ben Jonson to Beattie, without mutilation or abridgment, with biographical and critical notices of the authors.” The present volume commences with Falconer and ends with Scott.

In the task of selecting, the compiler has kept in view, according to the best of his judgment, what appears to have been the leading principle of his predecessor, namely, to choose the most popular works of the best poets. The notices have been necessarily compiled entirely from British authorities.

It is intended to add one more volume to the series, which will commence with Southey, and include the principal works of all the classical poets of Great Britain, subsequent in chronological order to those comprised in the preceding volumes.
