Though the Book is divided into Four Parts, yet the formality of regular and
systematical arrangement of the component pieces, has not been strictly ob.
served. Such compilations as these have not unfrequently been called garlands
and nosegays : but in a garland or nosegay, who would place the tulips, the li.
lies, the pinks, and the roses in separate compartments ? In a disposition so arti.
ficial, their beauty and fragrance would be less pleasing than if they were care.
lessly mingled with all the case and wildness of natural variety. I hope the
analogy will hold: if not, I must throw myself in this, as I do in all other cir.
cumstances of this Publication, upon my Reader's indulgence. I expect not
praise ; but I confide in receiving pardon.

Perhaps the Reader will be the more inclined to extend it towards me, if I do
not weary him with apologies. I will then conclude my preface with the ideas
of Montaigne :- I have here only made a nosegay of culled flowers, and have
« brought nothing of my own but the thread that ties them.

In this Edition, as in the numerous preceding ones, greal Improvements
have been made. The favourable Reception of the Book has indeed encouraged
the Editor to render it, in every new Impression, still more acceptable. But
several Poems are now added for the first time, and some Poematia, which were
never printed before. The Collection was originally formed for the use of
TUNBRIDGE SCHOOL; and a few School Exercises of Tunbridge Scholars have
been very sparingly inserted, with a Vier to encourage ingenuous Youth, who,
in that ancient Place of classical Education, devote themselves to Studies of use.
