FOR THE YEAR
ON SALE AT THE PRICES AFFIXED, BY
No. 2, GREAT NEWPORT STREET.
"I no sooner come into the Library, but I bolt the door, to me excluding
Give me leave
To enjoy myself: that place that does contain
My BOOKS, the best companions, is to me
A glorious court, where hourly I converse
And sometimes for variety, I confer
With kings and emperors, and weigh their counsels;
Unto a strict account, and, in my fancy,
Deface their ill-placed statues. Can I then
To augment a heap of wealth; it shall be mine
Price Four Shillings-Allowed to Purchasers.
Printed by Compton & Ritchie, Middle Street, Cloth Fair.
