PRINTING AND BOOKBINDING Co.,
This book was originally announced under the tile of "Single Famous Poems." Editor and publishers all had msgivings as to whether that title would convey a definite ide of the contents; but no better one suggested itself. On the eve of publication, the editor being in Europe, and it being too late to consult him, a friend suggests the title the voline now bears, and which it seems marvelous was not tongit of before. It has been adopted after consultation with those best able to conjecture the editor's views. No doubt is felt of his ultimate approval, yet it seems but fair t› thus palicly relieve him from all responsibility.
It is, perhaps, superfluous to explain a term that is almost current cin, but it is barely possible that some purchaser-not the kind of a one, how ver, who is apt to read prefatory matter-moy as we be told that the "Single-Poem Poets" a not convention understood to be those whom the Mace has vis'tel bit once, but those whose hold on genera reciation depends, justly or unjustly, on the result of but cne communion with her.
Telt r's preface explains this mo e specifically, and also jit is by fitting it perfectly, the new title his friends have scled, although it was written for the old one.
