Graceful “ Phantom of Delight!”
POSTSCRIPT. *.* The very great increase of the correspondence of the “ Literary Souvenir,” and the expense and trouble to which the Editor has been pat, by the transmission to him of unsolicited communications for his work, and subsequent and repeated applications respecting them, have rendered it necessary for him to announce, that no letters or parcels that do not appear to come from known correspondents, will be received, unless their carriage be paid; and that he cannot undertake to preserve and to return short pieces, whether of prose or verse, from anonymous or unsolicited contributors.
*n* In consequence of his having seen a song in the newspapers, from the pen of Mr. T. H. Bayly, entitled, “ The Last Man,” the Editor considers it due to the author of the sketch, entitled, “The Last Man in Town,” in the present volume, to mention that it was in the types several months before the appearance of the Poem in question, and that it was written upwards of four years ago.
*.* The Editor regrets that several articles intended for the present volume reached him too late for insertion, and among others, prose sketches from pens of the Author of “HollandTide,” and Dr. Maginn. Contributions destined for the current volume, should not reach the Editor later than the first of July, and the earlier, the more agreeable.
*** It is proper to mention, that the beautiful address to Mrs. Siddons, by Joanna Baillie, is reprinted from a collection of Poems, edited by that lady.
** Several of the sonnets on Scottish scenery in the fore. going pages, have been extracted, with the author's permission, from an unpublished volume of poetry, by the Rev. Charles Hoyle, entitled, “The Pilgrim of the Hebrides,”
Printed by S. Manning & Co. London-House Yurd, St. Paul's.
THE LITERARY SOUVENIR.
THE unrivalled beauty of this series of Volumes has been universally acknowledged. It comprises many of the most exquisite specimens of line Engraving which modern times have produced, from the burins of W.FINDEN, HEATH, PYE, J. H. ROBINSON, ROLLS, GOODALL, GOODYEAR, WALLIS, J. C. EDWARDS, PORTBURY, and other eminent Engravers. The subjects are from the pencils of a large proportion of the most distin. guished Artists of the day; and include many pictures of great and deserved celebrity.
Of the Literary Department of the Work, it is sufficient to observe, that it includes original Tales, Sketches, and Poems, from a greater number of distinguished Writers than any similar Work,-among others, from the pens of : ? Sir Walter Scott
