[table]

This Collection, of which one hundred and twenty-eight
volumes are already issued, is intended to embrace the
works of the most distinguished authors, from Chaucer to
Wordsworth, with selections from the minor poets; accom-
panied with biographical, historical, and critical notices
and portraits, — the whole forming a far more complete, elegant, and cheap edition of the British Poets than has ever appeared before.

The numerous testimonials to th& excellence of this series, which the publishers have received, both from the press and the public, in all parts of the country, would seem to indicate that a popular want has been met by this edition, which is universally acknowledged to be the best ever issued, both in point of editorship and mechanical execution.
