PREFACE.

The object of this work is to show, to some extent, the obligations Our language owes to various authors for numerous phrases and familiar quotations which have become "household words," and " to restore to the temples of poetry the many beautiful fragments which have been stolen from them, and built into the heavy walls of prose."

The present edition has been revised, and enlarged by the addition of sixty-three pages.

Cambridge, January, 1856..
