HYPERION:

A ROMANCE.

[blocks in formation]

"Look not mournfully into the Past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the Present.
It is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy Future, without fear, and with a manly heart."

LONDON:

HENRY VIZETELLY, PRINTER AND ENGRAVER,

GOUGH SQUARE, FLEET STREET,

This, the first, Illustrated Edition of LONGFELLOW'S celebrated Romance comes before the public with some claim on its attention. Independently of the beauty of the Illustrations, it furnishes the first example of a lengthened journey being expressly undertaken to depict from nature all the varied scenes amid which a writer of fiction has laid the incidents of his story. And when it is considered that a tour of between two and three thousand miles-out and home-had to be performed for this purpose, and that every local Illustration contained in the volume was sketched on the spot, and is a perfectly faithful representation of the place described or mentioned; the book cannot fail to be regarded with some little additional interest, if with no higher feelings of satisfaction.

London, 1853.
