THIs Collection, of which more than one hundred volumes

the most distinguished authors, from Chaucer to Wordsworth,
with selections from the minor poets; accompanied with bio-

of the British Poets than has ever appeared before.

The numerous testimonials to the excellence of this series,
which the publishers have received, both from the press and
the public, in all parts of the country, would seem to indicate
that a popular want has been met by this edition, which is
universally acknowledged to be the best ever issued, both in
point of editorship and mechanical execution.
