Arrangements have been made to publish a edition of the British and American Poets, in which the desirabilities of clear and readable type, excellence in quality of paper, handiness in size, and elegancy in general get up, will be combined in a way so as to render them ornaments to the bookcase, or suitable as a series of pocket volumes, while the price at which they will be published will place them within the reach of every reader, however humble in circumstance.
In the present issue quantity will be an important 'feature. Quality will, first of all, be considered, and side by side with a popular poet, such as Burns or Longfellow, will at intervals appear a Chatterton or a Blake, and one or two others whose works have never yet hitherto appeared in a cheap series, and scarcely in any series whatever, and the splendour of whose genius is only known to a select few.
