ESSAYS

FROM THE

LONDON TIMES.

SECOND SERIES*

NEW-YORK:
D. APPLETON & COMPANY, 200 BROADWAY

PUBLISHER'S ADVERTISEMENT,

The success of a first volume of Papers from the London Times has induced the publication of a second. The articles in the present book are all drawn from a recent period of that journal; several of them, which have obtained quite a celebrity, from the numbers of the present season. They will be found to include, among other subjects, sketches of the chief literary characters of England of the day—the Tennysons, Dickens, Carlyles, Thackerays, Kingsleys.

It is proposed from time to time to continue these Collections, and a novel volume is in preparation to consist entirely of Leaders From The London Times.

New York, October, 1852.
