In every instance, the best and most catholic
pieces that lay within the reach of the compiler
have been chosen. While avoiding high ideal
flights that might lie beyond the comprehension
of ordinary readers, he has been equally careful
in excluding mere rhymes that would fail to
attract, or, from their inferiority, cease to be
remembered. The volumes have been produced
in a form at once elegant and available in a
form that may be perused with pleasure in the
parlour, carried with convenience in the pocket,
or read with delight in the fields.

Though published as a Series, each volume,
having an independent aim, can be purchased
as a separate work. The issue will take place
during the ensuing winter - the first volume
early in November, and the second early in
December; the others at monthly intervals in
February, March, and April, 1864.
