Сторінка 468 - DRESSES AND HABITS OF THE PEOPLE OF ENGLAND, from the Establishment of the Saxons in Britain to the present time ; with an Historical and Critical Inquiry into every branch of Costume.
Сторінка 248 - Complaint and those other serious poems said to be father Southwell's ; the English whereof, as it is most proper, so the sharpness and light of wit is very rare in them.
Сторінка 243 - We have old Mr. Southern at a Gentleman's house a little way off, who often comes to see us ; he is now seventy-seven years old *, and has almost wholly lost his memory; but is as agreeable as an old man can be, at least I persuade myself so when I look at him, and think of Isabella and Oroonoko.

Сторінка 276 - Odyssey a criticism was published by Spence, at that time prelector of poetry at Oxford; a man whose learning was not very great, and whose mind was not very powerful.
