The lectures which compose the present volume were delivered at the Lowell Institute, in Boston, Massachusetts, in the autumn and winter of 1860 -1861, and they are now published, for the benefit of the author, by the liberal permission of the Trustees of that noble foundation. They were prepared in the summer preceding, with such aids only as my private library afforded; and my departure from the United States in the spring of 1861, together with the want of access to collections of English books abroad, has prevented me from giving them such a revision as I hoped to be able to bestow upon them. They are printed, therefore, very nearly as they were originally written ; and I have not thought myself bound to suppress opinions advanced, or illustrations employed, in the delivery of the lectures, barely because they are published under circumstances different from those in which they were read.
It is proper to add that the frequent references in
the foot-notes and elsewhere to the “First Series,” apply to the fourth edition of a course of lectures on the English Language, delivered by me at New York, and published in 1861 by Scribner in that city, and by Sampson Low, Son and Co., in London.
