ADVERTISEMENT.

IN this Edition, it has been attempted to give (what the Public has long demanded) a correct text of Pope's works, in which the reader's attention is not divided, or his feelings interrupted, by the discordance of critical disputes and fanciful opinions, such Notes only having been preserved as are necessary to explain ambiguities in the text, or afford some information respecting the characters. The notes of Pope himself, being of this description, are generally retained, and those appended to the Dunciad are component parts of that satire. The Latin of Statius, Horace, &c. is omitted as otherwise accessible to scholars, and useless to readers of a different description. To the Life, written by Dr. Johnson, several particulars have been added from subsequent biographers.

London, December 1811,
