"We are persuaded that the very rudest of these jingles, tales, and rhymes, possess a strong imagination-nourishing power; and that in infancy and early childhood a sprinkling of ancient nursery lore is worth whole cart-loads of the wise saws and modern instances which are now as duly and carefully concocted by experienced litterateurs into instructive tales for the spelling public, as are works of entertainment for the reading public. The work is worthy the attention of the popular antiquary."-An article on Nursery Rhymes in Tait's Mag.
