DUUR OF UEMS,-compiewing uie piopuovu v... of British PoETS AND British ARTISTS,—the Editor is bound to express his grateful sense of the support by which his labours have been recompensed; - and trusts he may be again successful in his efforts to obtain that extensive patronage which can alone reward the Publishers for an undertaking costly almost beyond precedent.

b

His project having been thus completed, he hopes that it accomplishes what was originally had in view,• “ to collect and arrange, in a popular and attractive form, the most perfect specimens of the Poets, illustrated by the pencils of the Artists, of Great Britain," - and that he has succeeded in “ extending the knowledge and appreciation of British Poetry and British Art.”

It will be perceived that the series terminates with Bloomfield. It is presumed that a volume containing selections from the Poets by whom our Own Times have been more immediately distinguished, will be acceptable to the public ; - and that the success of this Collection will be such as to justify the Editor in acting upon his earnest desire to undertake it.
