This volume, designed for Colleges and Schools, will be about as large as that in common use, containing the Five first Books, for which it is proposed as a substitute. The First Book will be given entire, and then such passages in the course of the whole history, as are recommended by the importance of the transactions they record, and by superior excellence of style. The volume will be illustrated by English notes, placed at the end.




This volume is a continuation of the Boston Octavo Edition of Mrs Hemans's Poems, and, like those that have preceded it, is published under the direction and for the benefit of the author. Like the other volumes, also, it will contain a double titlepage, that it may be bound separately, or with 'The Forest Sanctuary' &c., as Part Second of Volume Second.
