[ocr errors]

F all the poets of modern times, Byron and Moore have proved themselves the most eminently qualified to illustrate the charms of female grace and beauty; their poems, melodies and Songs teem with all that is most rare, impassioned and refined; forming a beau-ideal, wherein, “the angel, yet the woman too," fills up the measure of the soul's content. In placing this Gallery before the Public, the publishers have acted under the impression that they were making an offering worthy not only of its taste and judgment, but also of its patronage and support. In this volume the reader is presented with a series of intellectual gems, worthy of the genius of those whose names they bear—names consecrated by those qualities which form the poet, and those virtues which make the man! These are finely reflected throughout this work, where Love, Friendship, Patriotism and Devotion are portrayed with all the fervor and beauty of which language is capable—with all that force and fire which, proceeding from true inspiration, must ever command the admiration of mankind, placing the names of Byron and Moore amongst the sacred few, whose genius has gained for them the meed of Immortality. To render this volume an attractive ornament for the Parlor and Library, the publishers have spared neither pains nor expense in procuring suitable embellishments from designs by celebrated artists in the various departments of History, Landscape, and Portrait; accompanied also, by historical, biographical, and critical notices of the Authors
