Excerpt from English Literature of the Nineteenth Century: On the Plan of the Author's "Compendium of English Literature," and Supplementary to It; Designed for Colleges and Advanced Classes in Schools, as Well as for Private Reading
Before I began to collect my materials for the Compendium of English Literature, I felt that I could do no sort of justice to the subject should I come down later than 1800; and it was therefore my original intention to publish a similar work, em bracing the most prominent authors, dead and living, who have ﬂourished since the beginning of the present century. Such is the present work. I have therefore but few prefatory remarks to make respecting it 3 for as it is upon the same plan as the Compendium, I would refer to the preface of that, for my object and design in preparing both.
