THE publishers of this improved edition of the Beauties of Poetry, deem it superfluous to offer any other recommendation than that which a reference to the succeeding pages of Contents will furnish. Readers of taste, they trust, will there find such an assemblage of the best productions of many of the most celebrated poets as cannot fail to be highly acceptable.
To those whose circumstances or inclinations may not permit them to purchase a large number of books, this compilation, it is believed, will be peculiarly useful; as it unquestionably contains a greater variety of elegant poetical effusions than any other work of its size and price. To the learned and affluent, also, it will not be of less advantage ; as the trouble of research is materially lessened by comprising in a neat portable volume the best productions of several authors.
